If you're using your favorite non-Nexus third party camera app on your shiny new Nexus 5X and are surprised to discover your photos upside down, don't panic. It's not a hardware flaw. And it's not a software bug either. Well, at least not completely. The Nexus 5X camera module is indeed oriented in an unconventional way, but don't worry, that is as intended. The problem unfortunately lies with these third party camera apps aren't using the latest Camera2 API, which has resulted in no small amount of shock and confusion for users.
