I'd there a way to setup 2 Android phones so I can control one from another?

I want to take selfie using one phone using the other.

    @electrineer that's the one I tried, I can view another Android screen but can't control it?

    Controlling worked for me last time I tried it but if I rember it right you needed some sort of extra plugin(a phone specific one)

    @Ki4F I says launch QuickSupport to connect but then it's just like a screen share. Is there a Take Control button or I need to connect both to the same account?

    I have one question: why?

    @CoffeeNcode because I'm a lonely person... That has 2 fully functioning phones.... And don't feel like buying a selfie stick for just a few pictures

    @brunofontes doesn't work if I can't see the screen. And I need to see a preview before I take it too. I guess timer would give me enough time though to put the other phone down but the big thing is just being able to use a 16MP camera vs a webcam.

    @billgates are you trying to take passport photographs on your own or why do you need to have the camera at a distance?

    It could exist an app for that purpose. You install a camera app on both phones, sync them and one let you are and take pictures by the other one.

    @brunofontes but why reinvent the wheel when you can just reused an evening solution?

    Actually TeamViewer works if you install the plug-in but only supports newer devices...

    @billgates oh, I understood there was some issue with that. I think I misread that. If it works, it works. :)
