2017 Android Phones With 5+MP Front-Facing Selfie Cameras

New Android Phones With At Least a 5-megapixel Front-Facing Camera 2017


A secondary camera, generally front-facing, is convenient for video conferencing over Skype and of course, selfie shots. Our list of Android phones with a decent front-facing or secondary camera includes only models whose selfie cam has at least 5 megapixels since today's video call requirement are above the grainy images we used to have a few years ago and selfies deserve better quality if they are to serve as souvenirs. Besides, larger data plans, 4G smartphones and the increased availability of Wi-Fi makes it more realistic to make Skype calls or other video calls at a better image resolution.

Because of star rating of 0 derived from reviews, here is what we consider the second best Android phone with secondary camera. * This list, by the way, is based on an in-depth aggregation of hundreds of Android phone with secondary camera reviews from around the web.

Nothing particularly stands out in the Phoenix 3's specs list except for its 5-megapixel front camera (which is equipped with several features, such as selfie light) and thin 0.3-inch body -- both of which attempt to counter the potential disappointment brought by its 5-inch 854 x 480 display.

Alcatel A3 XL

Alcatel A3 XL

The Alcatel A3 XL is a six-inch smartphone that targets the budget buyer who might enjoy specs like a fingerprint scanner and a front-facing camera flash -- settling with a sub-par 1.1GHz clock speed and a rather-murky 245DPI display in the process.

Sony Xperia L1

Sony Xperia L1

The Sony Xperia L1 suffers issues relating to its 5.5-inch 720p display (that lacks sharpness at 267DPI) and relatively-bulky exterior (weight and thickness-wise), which it hopes to make up for through the 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel wide-angle selfie sensor that it sports.

  • Main camera: 13-megapixel
Alcatel A3

Alcatel A3

The Alcatel A3 does not impress much when it comes to its rather-small 2460mAh battery specs and 1.25GHz processor (which, by the way, is below the average across all phones as of this writing), but it does have the strength of having a few youth-oriented features like Face Mask and Face Show on its selfie cam (both of which offer live filters) and a fingerprint-activated Private Mode.

  • Main camera: 13-megapixel
Huawei P10 lite

  • Additional camera: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 13-megapixel
Samsung Galaxy J7 V

Samsung Galaxy J7 V

This smartphone suffers from unimpressive camera specs (Its 8-megapixel main shooter and 5-megapixel selfie sensor are unimpressive in its market niche) and an underwhelming 268DPI screen, but its relatively-large 3300mAh battery and 2.2GHz CPU promise to deliver.

ZTE Blade V8 Mini

ZTE Blade V8 Mini

The ZTE Blade V8 Mini may have cut back on a competitive processor speed (it clocks in at 1.4GHz) and display specs (as its display fineness of 294DPI is rather lacking) to be able to offer a dual 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel camera and 3D Capture capabilities at a mid-range price, but this is what exactly makes it a strong contender for photography junkies who don't want to spend for a flagship phone.
