In addition, other problems that has been happening with the HTC One M9 is that the default camera is showing everything upside down (ie, inverted) also all the HTC One M9 buttons are upside down. If none of the methods that are explained below fix the problem, then there could be a software bug issue with the current software and it’s suggested to update to the newest software offered.
