Everyone wants a phone that takes good selfies amirite? And these days, mobile phone companies are doing some pretty interesting things when it comes to phones. So to test out the different looks and feels of each phone’s selfie-abilities, we got a few brands together to do a couple test shots in the same conditions.
Unfortunately, actual selfie skills weren’t included along with the phones, so I had to make do with my own. And they’re basic at best. Nevertheless, I gamely took home five phones, put my best(ish) makeup skills to the test and gamely took picture after picture of my face.
The end results were interesting. Most selfie-cameras focus on the skin. Making sure it’s smoother than smooth, some to the point where you end up looking a little cartoonish. Others include other more common (or not) filters, as well as face slimming and eye widening options. As for my favourites? I have to say I’m partial to my trusty iPhone, but also intrigued by the Samsung Galaxy S8 which seems to be a lot of fun, and the HuaweiP10 Plus. Check out the results here and see which one you prefer!
