How to fix Realme X front camera not working issue?

This is a major issue we found with most of the Realme X owners (check this thread on Realme’s official community website for more details). Such issues must have been seriously considered by the related company. Anyway, here are some troubleshooting methods you can try to fix Realme X front-facing camera not working issue (pop-up problem):


When the pop-up camera issue occurs in your Realme X then just clear all the background applications from the recent menu and restart your device. Restarting your device clears the ram and some cached process allows the app to run smoothly.

Clear Cache and Data

Open the main menu, go to settings and open the camera settings in App management. Now press on camera in App management & go to storage, and clear cache & data. Open the camera app and check if the pop-up camera is working or not.

Camera permission

We recommend checking these settings if you’re facing a pop-up camera-related problem on your Realme X smartphone only while opening some apps other than the default camera app. Several apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, etc in the android phone require permission to access the camera to perform specific tasks properly. So allow all the permissions to the Camera for such apps.

Perform a factory data reset

If the other methods are not working, then you can try the factory data reset method.

Go to settings > Additional settings > Backup and restore, from backup and restore, select reset system settings and press reset.

We hope the above steps were helpful to resolve your issue.
