Samsung Users! Town portrait is working!
I don't know if EA fixed it or it could be two things I did.
First I downloaded a new gallery app.
Then I removed Tapped Out as a optimized app in the settings. But one of those three things has the town portrait working again! I tried it twice just to be sure. If you were having issues taking a town portrait, try taking a picture before doing the other two steps to see if EA fixed it. I'm pretty happy about this! It's definitely going to help in my endeavor to redesign.
