The Best Selfie Phones As Of September 2017

New Selfie Phones 2017


A secondary camera, generally front-facing, is convenient for video conferencing over Skype and of course, selfie shots. Our list of Selfie phones with a decent front-facing or secondary camera includes only models whose selfie cam has at least 8 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.
