Do you want your smartphone to take great selfies? Then you need to be careful as to what smartphone you buy, as a lot of phones have poor front-facing cameras. They’re often blurry and hard to get any measure of quality out of. Even phones that say they have a higher megapixel count on the front end aren’t necessarily taking quality photos either. As they always say, megapixel increases doesn’t necessarily mean quality increase — just take a look at Apple’s iPhone or Samsung’s Galaxy S8 for that to ring true.

For a good selfie, you need not only high quality camera internals for capturing the perfect amount of light, but a good front LED flash as well. Be sure to follow along below, and we’ll show you the best phones you can get that meet this criteria.
Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro
First up on our list is the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro. This phone sports a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080. A pixel density of 401ppi means you’re going to get great views for your media viewing, whether that be regular YouTube videos or movies and TV. Most importantly, the J7 Pro has a phenomenal selfie cam.
On the front, you get a whopping 13-megapixel camera that takes in the perfect amount of light to take a quality selfie. It has a great LED flash function as well, which helps you take great selfies in low light scenarios. The camera isn’t necessarily wide-angle, but it can take in a lot of information at once, meaning you can get multiple people in your selfie fairly easily.
Motorola Moto G6 Plus
Next up, we have the Motorola Moto G6 Plus. This phone has a great display — it’s sporting a 5.9-inch 2,160 x 1,080. It’s a massive screen that is perfect for all sorts of media consumption — TV, movies, YouTube, you name it. It has a big 3,200mAh battery to keep you powered throughout the entire day. On the rear, you get a dual 12-megapixel camera for taking high quality shots.
Around the front, you have a 8-megapixel camera capable of taking high quality selfies. And of course, you have that LED flash, too.
Motorola Moto X4
Next up, we have the Moto X4. With it, you’ll get a 5.2-inch 1,920 x 1,080 display, which still isn’t bad for media consumption. You get a Snapdragon 630 processor backed by 4GB of RAM, so you can actually run some fairly demanding applications with any sort of slow downs. This phone in particular is able to work on Google’s Project Fi network as well, so you can get some pretty cheap monthly phone plans with Google, too.
As for the front selfie camera, you get a massive 16-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture. It has a good pixel size as well, and with LED flash, you’ll be taking all sorts of detailed photos.
Next, we have a fairly unheard of phone here in the US — the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. This phone has a massive 5.99-inch display with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080. The IPS LCD display will give you true colors for an enjoyable media experience. A Snapdragon 636 processor will keep your breezing through apps pretty smoothly.
It has a great front camera, too. You get a whole 20-megapixels, and the Redmi Note 5 Pro takes in the perfect amount of light for a great photo. It has f/2.2 aperture and a 1um pixel size as well as LED flash.
Samsung Galaxy A6
On the low end of the scale, you have the Samsung Galaxy A6. This phone has a display size of 5.6-inches with a resolution of only 1,480 x 720. It’s fairly low-end as far as the smartphones go on this list, but for those on a budget, you cannot go wrong with what the A6 has to offer. Even with its low-end package, it’s able to run Android Oreo just fine.
Around the front, you get a massive 16-megapixel selfie camera. There aren’t many frills to it, but it does have an LED flash for taking a great selfie in low light scenarios.
So, which selfie smartphone should you get? If you want a high-end phone as well, you can’t go wrong with what Motorola is offering in the Moto G6 Plus. The Galaxy J7 Pro and Moto X4 aren’t bad options either; however, if you’re on a budget, the Samsung Galaxy A6 will get you through just fine.
