Where selfies may have been considered a fad in the past, they’re now firmly embedded in our society as a means of self-expression - so much so that we now have a designated “National Selfie Day” (21st June).
The importance of capturing the perfect vanity shot has also meant big business for tech companies, as new devices with better cameras are released year on year to help us “get our good side”.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 (or S10 Plus)
This is just one example of the smartphones transforming the humble selfie. It may only have one front lens - a fairly average 10MP one, at that - but its 4K UHD recording makes up for it. Not only are your still selfies packed with vibrant detail, but so are those moving moments that just can’t go unrecorded.
Not only that - it also boasts an impressive triple-lens rear camera with 12MP, 12MP and 16Mp, to make sure you capture every angle of your favourite summer events.

Looking for something a little different? The long-awaited Google Pixel 3 XL
is another smartphone created specifically for those of us who are a little selfie-obsessed. Its dual-lens 8MP front camera has a choice of F1.8 or F2.2 aperture, as well as facial recognition to make sure all your best bits are captured in detail.
Plus, its wide-angle feature and edge-to-edge screen mean group selfies are easier - to capture and dissect - than ever. So, you’ve got the best device for the job and are on the way to a strong selfie - but what about that awkward arm reach-and-hold?
Well, forget the hyper-extended, aching arm and opt for a selfie stick instead – like this KitVision number,
All you do is clip your phone onto the end, extend the pole and push a Bluetooth button that activates your phone’s shutter - baddabing baddaboom, the best selfie ever with minimal effort and strain on your arm.
