Our best phones for selfies

For the perfect selfie, every time

Whether you admit it or not, you love a cheeky selfie. It’s easier now than ever to put yourself in the frame. But did you know that some smartphones are designed with a great selfie in mind? Here’s a breakdown of our favourites, available from Carphone Warehouse.

HTC U11

The U11 is the latest from HTC. Its 16MP front-facing camera features HTC’s UltraPixel light sensitivity technology, so you’re guaranteed a great shot. But that’s not all. The HTC U11 has pressure-sensitive edges letting you snap a selfie with just a squeeze.

Samsung Galaxy S8

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is an awesome phone all-round. Its 12MP Dual Pixel camera is great, but there’s a lot to be said about the selfie camera, too. At 8MP you’ll get a really sharp image – especially with the built in autofocus tech - and there’s also an iris scanner on the front, letting you unlock the phone with just a glance.

iPhone 7

The 7MP wide-angle camera on the front of iPhone 7 is brimming with features. You can film video in Full HD at 30fps (perfect for the Snapchat story), and it has HDR. This means you’ll be able to capture an even greater range of colours than before.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium

The Sony Xperia XZ Premium’s front-facing lens comes in at 13MP, has a wide f/2.0 aperture to let in loads of light, and can film video in Full HD. It’s also great for getting everyone in the frame, with its wide-angle design at 22mm.

LG G6

Finally, it’s over to the LG G6. It has the widest selfie lens of the lot, giving you the option of shooting both standard and wide angles without any loss of resolution. It’s 5MP, can film video in Full HD at 30fps and has an aperture of f/2.2.
