Need a powerful selfie camera? These fine phones flaunt unorthodox front shooters

With Samsung Galaxy S8 tipped to arrive with an enhanced front camera that sports autofocus technology instead of the typical fixed focus shooter that manufacturers slap there, and the new A-series sporting 16 MP selfie snappers with resolution equaling that of their rear cameras, the war for the heart of the narcissistic types is bound to become even more fierce. Love it or leave it, the "selfie phone" trend is absolutely a thing, and, at that time, has blown up with full force on the smartphone landscape.

Since manufacturers of all sizes and backgrounds are working on, or already unleashing some fine phones with unorthodox front camera sensors, we felt obliged to round up some of the more intriguing models you can get right now if you are a selfie aficionado. There are many options on the table, and, fortunately, a lot of them aren't crazy front cams slapped on mediocre phones, but actually decent handsets in each aspect. Check them out.

6-8 megapixel ffc is pretty enough. Who da fuk needs a 16mp front shooter?

Tell that to OnePlus! I agree though, that's too much.

To be honest, I had the XA Ultra, it's not about the megapixels, or the led flash, My Nexus 6P take better pictures than these phones.

Love to see Vivo sell their hardware in the West. Forbes recently reviewed the Vivo xplay 6 with high marks and beat out the Huawei mate 9 in the low light pics head to head.
