The selfie craze is nothing new, but while most phones claim to offer good selfie cameras, there are only a handful of devices, which can be counted in our list of best selfie smartphones. These phones are not only among the best selfie phones, but offer decent performance and build as well. A few of these selfie phones are good looking and will even up your style quotient.
If you are a sucker for selfies, the Oppo F3 Plus is still the most well-rounded selfie phone available today. It has a dual camera setup at the front featuring a 16MP + 8MP camera. The 16MP camera is the main selfie camera and the 8MP camera with its wide field of view is meant for group selfies or groupfies. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 SoC and the performance is quite satisfactory. The rear camera is even better than the front-facing camera and the large 4000mAh battery easily lasts for the day.
Unlike the Vivo V5 Plus which had dual cameras at the front, the Vivo V7 Plus takes decent selfies with just one 24MP camera. The camera offers a wide-screen selfie mode and the beauty mode is quite feature rich. The phone itself is an average performer, but you do get the 18:9 display along with a good build quality.
The Oppo F5 is another Oppo phone which takes good selfies. The device employs a 20MP camera for the job and you do get a slight difference in skin tones as the camera tends to make it lighter. However, apart from that you still get a ton of beauty options and other modes. The build quality and display of the phone is quite nice and so is the rear camera.
The Vivo V7 is the smaller cousin of the Vivo V7 Plus featuring a similar 24MP front-facing camera. The phone does a good job taking selfies in varied light conditions and brings all the required beauty modes you may need from a selfie-centric device like this. The rear camera isn't that bad either and the smaller form factor is more ergonomic to use in one hand.
With dual cameras at the front, the Honor 9i presents itself as one of the best dual camera selfie phones you can buy today. It offers all the required beauty and bokeh modes you would expect from a phone of this caliber and the image quality doesn't disappoint either. The performance is also at par with all the different phones available today at the same price.
Another phone which makes its way into the list is the Galaxy J7 Pro, which not only has a good rear camera but an equally good selfie shooter. The device is not the fastest among its peers but then it offers one of the best battery life you can get around the 20K price tag.
Under 10K, the phone we would recommend for taking selfies is the Xiaomi Redmi Y1. The small and affordable device offers a 16MP shooter at the front, allowing you take good selfies even without spending a whole lot. We don't have any complaints about the performance per se, but we do feel that build quality could have been better. It’s not particularly bad, but we’re used to better-designed phones from Xiaomi.
The Gionee A1 is a less expensive selfie option available today. This 20K smartphones offers a 16MP front facing camera, which takes good selfie in normal lighting conditions, but struggles a little in low light. The rear camera is good as well and is among the best in the sub-20K smartphone category. The phone offers a really good display, which we reckon is among the best in the category. The performance is decent as well.
When it comes to offering the best overall smartphone performance without creating a huge hole in your pocket, the OnePlus 3T has no match. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 powered device is not only fast, but offers one of the best selfie cameras in its category. The rear camera is also quite good and the battery life as well as the build quality is quite commendable.
Yesteryear’s HTC 10 is one of the only smartphones in this list to offer a OIS (optical image stabilization) aided front facing camera. While it is still a 5MP cameras, it is a good one at that. Like all 2016 smartphones, the HTC 10 is also powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, making it fast and reliable. It is also the best phone to buy if you are an audio enthusiast.
