Front cameras on smartphones have never mattered as much as they do today. And smartphone OEMs take advantage of that fact by packing in varied manners of selfie flashes. While phones such as the iPhone 6S choose to implement a screen-based flash, other phones choose to include a dedicated selfie flash. Today’s roundup is about the latter kind and here are three phones that do it the best.
The Moto X Style is Motorolla’s flagship device of the year. Powered by a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 and 3 GB of RAM, the Moto X Style has a 5 MP front facing camera that is powered by a single LED flash. With expandable storage up to 128 GB and Android 6.0 support, the Moto X Style should suit your needs for a good front facing camera that doesn’t let low-!!![Y]light be a limitation. For a look at camera samples from both, the front and back cameras, you can have a look at our Moto X Style camera review.
Sony Xperia C4
The Xperia C4 has a 5 MP camera with an Exmor RS sensor that is backed by an LED flash. Sony scores its points over the others in this roundup by giving the C4 a stellar build quality. Other hardware on the phone is as follows: an octacore Mediatek MT6752 1.7 GHz processor backed by 2 GB of RAM. Powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop, the C4 is set to receive an update to Marshmallow. The expandable storage(up to 128 GB) should be enough to have you clicking selfies all through the night.
Huawei Honor 7
Huawei’s Honor 7, our final entry in this roundup is the phone with the largest megapixel count on the front facing camera- 8 MP. Accompanied by the front facing flash, our impressions of the camera on the Honor 7 were quite positive. The rest of the package includes a HiSilicon Kirin 935 2.2 GHz quad-core processor with 3 GB of RAM. As with the other phones on this roundup, the storage can be upped by using a microSD card by up to 128 GB to store virtually endless selfies of you and your friends. The Honor 7 too, is set to receive a Marshmallow update soon.
The cameras on these three phones make it easier than ever to overcome the burden of taking a picture of yourself in the dark; so if that is your thing and you’ve been limited in the past by low lighting conditions, you now know the right tools for the job. Happy clicking!
