There is a mental game I play whenever someone puts on their mobile phone camera in front of me.
If the back-facing camera comes on first, I assume the last shot was a window to something interesting in the world. If the front-facing camera comes on first, I assume the last shot was a mirror of self.
Back-facing cameras are generally designed to be of better quality, yet on average, we use the front-facing camera more often. Why? Selfies and video calls.
From conversations with friends, I have found that those who use the back-facing camera more often, have a richer experience of the world. The eyes are designed to serve more as a window than a mirror. Cameras are too.
