Live Wallpaper Only Works With Facial Recognition. Has anyone else noticed this? If you hide your face from the camera, the ‘live wallpaper’ will not work, even if you press and hold the screen. You have to press and hold the screen AND have your face in full view for it to animate. But my facial recognition is disabled. Why is this and has anyone else noticed this?
