             Summary: Camera Plugin, Kindle Fire and Android Permissions incompatibility
                 Key: CB-13407
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-13407
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: cordova-browser
            Reporter: Mark Watkins
            Assignee: Jesse MacFadyen


I'm using the Camera plugin and porting a working Android project to Kindle Fire (FireOS).
When submitting to the Amazon store, their compatibility tester fails for most recent devices
because it states that my manifest file requires the android.hardware.camera.autofocus permission,
but that recent devices don't support that permission. So far as I can tell, the plugin does
not specifically request this permission, however according to Android docs, the autofocus
permission is "implied" by default when the camera permission is requested. ([https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/manifest/uses-feature-element.html#permissions](https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/manifest/uses-feature-element.html#permissions))

I am working around this at present by manually adding 
(https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/manifest/uses-feature-element.html#permissions)

to my AndroidManifest.xml file, but I'm wondering if the plugin itself should explicitly declare
this permission not required, so that most recent Kindle Fire devices can be supported out
of the box?
