So the other day I was going through my camera album on my PC, trying to find some old photos. I noticed a lot of the photos were upside down, but it seemed random. Now quite often I just use the virtual button on the screen instead of the volume button on the outside of the phone to take photos, so the orientation doesn't really matter to me.

I did some testing, and found out that photos taken using the volume button, have to have the volume button on the bottom of the phone, facing down instead of up, for the photos to appear to have the correct orientation when viewed on a computer. If they are taken with the buttons facing upwards, the photo appears upside down.

 Does everyone else have this? Is this intentional? Or is this some sort of bug/hardware fault?

Whatever side has the lens on top, that's the top of the photo.

I have exactly the same experience.
The top of the photo is decided by which side has the lens on top.
