3. LG G4 / G5 SE

The LG G4 surprises by the quality of its main sensor, however, many users do not know that LG's top of the line is also a showcase of selfies. The front camera of the LG G4 is 8 MP and features feature packed software such as Quick Selfie that automatically captures a portrait of the user when they open and close their hands.

The device does not have a front flash, but LG has added a feature in the G4 camera software that simulates flash light. Known as Virtual Flash, this function raises the screen brightness beyond 100%, filling the scene with more light. The results obtained from the LG G4's front camera are great, and are not due to any other smartphone of our selection.

The Xperia C5 is a good choice for self-portrait fans, who can count on a 13 MP front camera and Exmor R sensor, as well as autofocus and auto HDR.

In addition to the 25mm wide-angle lens, the front camera is accompanied by a softer-tone LED flash, which will likely contribute to night selfies. Xperia C4's camera software features SteadyShot technology, which reduces video and photo movement while delivering a more stable result.

6. Xiaomi Mi 5

The Mi 5's front camera is surprisingly good. It has a resolution of 4 MP and can escape the wax textures, constant presence in the shooting modes of most other smartphones. A trick used to overcome the front sensor limitations, in part thanks to the 2 m pixel size.

7. Motorola Moto X Style

Moto X Style is Motorola's current flagship; In addition to all its technical advantages, it has an excellent 5 MP front sensor for selfies. Motorola's simple camera software has no beautification adjustments or extra post-editing features. However, Moto X Style has a front LED flash that can assist in capturing self-portraits in less-favored lighting environments.

The results obtained with the help of this flash are great, however, this feature should be used sparingly, as it can burst the exposure of the image when used near the face. In any case, choose to use the Moto X Style flash in an environment that is adequately lit, ie neither completely dark nor brightly lit.
