So basically I recieved my new Samsung A71 today and on all third party apps the front camera is very zoomed in and can barely fit my face in the full frame. In the camera app it is fine, but when I use apps such as Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, Omegle the front facing camera is zoomed in. Anyone else having a problem with this? Any fixes for it?

I have the same issue which makes me dislike the phone. I also have an issue with speaker. It flucuates between low and loud. Very annoying!

Also with the shutter sound of instagram. It is loud and annoying. Makes the phone seem cheap in a way.

I have the same issue.. the camera is quite sharp and good just prior to taking a photo then when you take the shot, the photo goes blurry. Seeing this issue in Snapchat and WhatsApp.

Also have the issue with zoomed selfie on Snapchat. Apparently it's a known issue to Snapchat:

Are you sure about that? Maybe just wishing you didn't spend money on a phone that sucks for 3rd party apps? I just had an update 2 days ago. 

Update: my phone is still zoomed in for Snapchat and Duo app.👍

I've given up.
