Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge are Samsung's best smartphones for taking selfies
Samsung at IFA 2014 today announced its Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge, both coming with plenty of new features. Right now, we’re going to talk about the cameras on the Note 4 and Note Edge, which bring various improvements over the snappers of last year’s Note 3.

With the Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge, Samsung is taking the selfie craze seriously. We could describe the new Notes as “selfie phones” - although, of course, that would be an understatement, because the handsets are much more than that. Anyhow, the Note 4 and Note Edge offer the same 3.7 MP front-facing camera with f/1.9 aperture and a default 90-degree shooting angle. There’s even a Wide Selfie mode that provides 120-degree panoramic selfies - so you can include a lot more of your surroundings in one shot. Moreover, the new Notes have buttons on the back, just below the rear camera - these let you take selfies with ease (in a similar way that LG's G3 rear button works for selfies).

Obviously, the rear cameras on the Note 4 and Note Edge are also very promising. They're both 16 MP snappers with Smart Optical Image Stabilization for blur-free photos, even in low-light conditions. We're looking forward to testing the camera capabilities of Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge, and we hope to have reviews up as soon as possible. Stay tuned!

One thing about HTC, while they've always had garbage rear/main cameras, their front-facers were top notch. It's nice to see that Samsung is bringing this same level of quality and dedication to their front-facing cameras now; I guess the advent of the "selfies" token term proved useful in forwarding the progress of technology after all.

Yep, since mid 2012 HTC has put out front facing cameras that made the competition look like they were using low quality front facing cameras. The 8X had a superb front facing camera for it's time. (Still better than some 2014 flagships)

Does the note edge have a metal body like the note 4? I'm assuming that it does. ...

Better than C3. It's not about the MP when it comes to selfies. It's the experience, and the Note 4/Edge has a lot of it.
