  1. Hi there,
    I have a Galaxy SIII mini, and for some reason the default resolution of my camera is set at 0.3MP. Whenever I switch it to another ones (through the steps mentioned above), anytime I restart my phone it always goes back to 0.3MP. it's a bit annoying because that resolution it's extremely low... Any tips on how I could fix this? Many thanks.
