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.

LG G6

Because of this phone's overall ranking of %, we are confident that the is currently the best Android phone with secondary camera 2017. Furthermore, we think that our reviews sampled give us a high confidence level that justifies making it a "no-brainer best choice." LG's 2017 version of the G-series, the LG G6 offers a 5.7-inch display, dual 13-megapixel rear cameras, and only a 64GB memory (Some versions come with only 32GB of memory), which falls below that of the average flagship phone, considering how many others offer more than 128GB.

Motorola Moto Z2 Play

Motorola Moto Z2 Play

(Here's the current first Android phone with a decent secondary cam:)
The Z2 Play improves the current modular-phone lineup from Motorola by shaving off some thickness and weight (It's only 5.99mm-thin and weighs 145 grams), but it also strives to impress by banking on specs like a 12-megapixel rear camera, an octa-core 2.2GHz CPU, and a maximum of 4GB of RAM.
  • Front selfie camera: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 12-megapixel
HTC U11

HTC U11

The HTC U11's list of good points, which are led by a 16-megapixel selfie shooter, a 2.45GHz processor, and the squeeze-activated feature Edge Sense, appears promising despite of it having to deal with a less-impressive 3000mAh battery.
  • Additional camera: 16-megapixel
  • Main camera: 12-megapixel
LG Stylo 3 Plus

LG Stylo 3 Plus

In spite of having promising specs like a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 3080mAh battery, this phablet's make-or-break trait appears to still be the Pen Pop 2.0 feature, which has been designed in hopes of enhancing the usability and experience of its stylus.
  • Selfie cam: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 13-megapixel
ZTE Prestige 2

ZTE Prestige 2

Specs like its 1.1GHz CPU, 854 x 480 display, and 2035mAh battery are all clear indicators of its being a basic phone, but the Prestige 2 still strives to entice a portion of the budget market by banking on its 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory.
  • Additional camera: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 5-megapixel
Vivo Y66

Vivo Y66

The Vivo Y66 has a 3GB RAM, a 32GB Memory, and a 3000mAh battery as some of its main specs. This 5.5-inch phablet also sports a 16-megapixel selfie camera, as well as a 13-megapixel rear snapper.
  • Front selfie camera: 16-megapixel
  • Main camera: 13-megapixel
LG Fortune

LG Fortune

The LG Fortune projects itself as an inexpensive smartphone with a relatively-good 5-megapixel selfie camera, promising longevity (as seen on its 14-hour talk time and 25-day stand-by), and 1.5GB RAM, but it struggles with specs like a 1.1GHz processor and an 854 x 480 display.
  • Additional camera: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 5-megapixel
LG Phoenix 3

LG Phoenix 3

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.
  • Selfie cam: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 5-megapixel
ZTE Blade Max 3

ZTE Blade Max 3

To state the obvious, this phablet largely banks on its sizable 4000mAh power tank and 6-inch 1080p display to attract potential buyers -- but specs like its promising 2GHz processor, dual 13-megapixel rear camera, and relatively-small 16GB ROM deserve attention, as well.
  • Additional camera: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 13-megapixel (Dual-lens RGB + Mono)
ZTE MAX XL

ZTE MAX XL

This phone, as its name suggests, sports an upsized 3990mAh battery and a six-inch FHD display -- although its other specs, like its 1.4GHz processor speed, a 5-megapixel selfie camera, and 2GB of RAM, are undoubtedly more on the modest side.
  • Front-facing camera: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 13-megapixel
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.

  • Main camera: 8-megapixel
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.
  • Front selfie camera: 5-megapixel
  • 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.
  • Additional camera: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 13-megapixel
BlackBerry Aurora

Huawei P10 lite

Huawei P10 lite

In the P10 lite smartphone, Huawei chose to invest in performance specs (as seen in its 2.1GHz max clock speed and 3GB to 4GB of RAM) and a sharp 424DPI display, all while settling for an unimpressive-but-acceptable 12-megapixel rear camera and 3000mAh battery.
  • Additional camera: 8-megapixel
  • Main camera: 12-megapixel
LG K20 V

LG K20 V

This smartphone doesn't have the best display (Its pixel density is an underwhelming 277DPI) around and its 31-hour usage time may be a bit lacking, but it does offer respectable camera specs in exchange -- banking on a 13-megapixel sensor for its main shooter and a selfie light-equipped 5-megapixel camera on the front.
  • Front-facing 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.
  • Additional camera: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 8-megapixel
Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

While it banks on its 6.2-inch infinity display the most to make waves, the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphone also features other amped-up specs like an 8-megapixel selfie shooter which can take 1440p videos (one of the first -- if not the first -- of its kind), VR support, and a Snapdragon 835 processor in its core.
  • Front selfie camera: 8-megapixel
  • Main camera: Dual-pixel 12-megapixel
Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung Galaxy S8

One of Samsung's flagships for 2017, the S8 spearheads the impending expected dominance of almost-bezel-less, curved smartphone screens with a 5.8-inch infinity display, which is joined by other top-tier specs like a 1440p-recording 8-megapixel selfie cam, an octa-core Snapdragon 835 processor, and Gorilla Glass 5 finishes at the front and back.

  • Main camera: 12-megapixel
LG X venture

LG X venture

The LG X venture, which is IP68 dust and water-resistant and MIL-STD-810G shock-resistant, sports higher-end specs -- like a 16-megapixel main shooter (although the 5-megapixel selfie cam is unimpressive), a 4100mAh battery, and a sophisticated-looking 0.36in-thick exterior -- compared to the usual rugged phone.
  • Front-facing camera: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 16-megapixel
ZTE Blade X Max

ZTE Blade X Max

With a 6-inch Full HD screen being the most potent weapon in its arsenal of specs, this phablet chose to pair this feature with a 3400mAh battery, a 13-megapixel main camera, and 32GB of internal memory -- giving rise to a slightly-worrisome 0.37-inch-thick, 6.93-ounce body.
  • Additional camera: 5-megapixel
  • Main camera: 13-megapixel
Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra

Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra

  • Secondary camera: 16-megapixel
  • Main camera: 23-megapixel
Huawei Enjoy 7 Plus

Huawei Enjoy 7 Plus

This 5.5-inch smartphone's HD display feels worrisome for a 2017 mid-ranger, but its other specs, like a 3GB/4GB RAM, an 8-megapixel selfie shooter, and a 4000mAh battery, seem capable to generate enough interest from the mid-range market.
  • Additional camera: 8-megapixel
  • Main camera: 12-megapixel
