  1. I tried this several times and it didn’t work. I’ve been constantly asked to “update” my camera app on my Samsung S10. Eventually I agreed today believing it will have some added benefits. However over half the old filters I used to use have disappeared. Can I uninstall a recent update. I’d prefer to reset to the original app. Any advice much appreciated. Thanks
