Smartphones with a good front camera (self-phones) 2018

Once smartphones could boast of only one camera – the rear, and at that time it was considered a real achievement. Today, we are used to the fact that literally every smartphone is also equipped with a front camera for creating selfie pictures. Some users do not use the rear camera at all, but use only the front camera. This is a rating of smartphones with a good front camera..

ASUS ZenFone 4 Selfie ZD553KL

Two front cameras? Why not? Although it is worth noting that this is still rare on smartphones.

Judging by the name of the device (ZenFone 4 Selfie ZD553KL), it is obvious that the manufacturer has relied on the front camera. More precisely, cameras – with a resolution of 20 MP and 8 MP (additional wide-angle camera). Judging by the reviews, the pictures are very clear, even better than on the main camera. There is a portrait program mode that allows you to blur the background.
