I cannot take selfie shots using the heart rate monitor sensor with S View cover attached. Why is this?

Last Update date : 2017.05.02

Galaxy Note5 does not support to take selfies by tapping the heart rate sensor while using a flip

cover and it’s normal operation concept to prevent malfunction of sensor.


If you try to take selfie using heart rate sensor while attaching a flip cover, Galaxy Note5 notify

popup texts at the first time regarding this.




If you want to take selfie on Galaxy Note5 with Flip cover, we recommend you to tap the screen’s Shot button to take a photo.


Or, you can take a selfie using your palm after setting Gesture control.


If Gesture control is activated, you can hold your hand out with your palm facing the camera to

have your picture taken after a few seconds




Tap the Shot button
