Nokia Lumia 730 used to snap the largest selfie ever

Nokia Lumia 730 used to snap the largest selfie ever
The Nokia Lumia 730 is perfectly equipped for the task that Microsoft Lumia Bangladesh used it for. With a 5MP front-facing camera that employs a wide-angle lens, the Lumia 730 was made to capture the world's largest selfie. Sure, Ellen Degeneres might have snapped the most popular selfie in history earlier this year. But even that famous photo, taken with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, was far from being the largest such picture.

With the wide-angle lens doing its thing, Microsoft was able to squeeze 1151 people into the record breaking selfie. Microsoft Lumia Bangladesh  now presumably owns the title for having snapped a selfie with the "most number of people with recognizable faces."

Still, there has been no official word from the authenticator of such deeds, the Guinness Book of World Records. Regardless, it still is a clever promotion for the selfie-centric front-facing snapper on the Lumia 730. Now, if you can get 1152 recognizable faces to squeeze into a selfie, let us know.

I hate to break it to MS but that's a groupie not a selfie. Selfie - self - singular Groupie - group - multi nuff said.

Wtf! Sriusly? I call it group selfie. I don't think there is any right or wrong here, and selfie wasn't even a real word to begin with anyway.

Yeah. Words will always change and invented. It doesn't take a genius to know that buddy.

Yup, but here is the thing, "selfies" used as in group selfies are widely accepted, and the more popular term for group selfie is wefie. ;)

i don't know if you are trying to be right, when you were wrong. or showing that you were right all along. considering you wanted to argue what a group selfie was in the first place, i think it is the former. either way... no word is a real word to begin with. so why even make the comment?

Okay, there was no argument. But anyway, prove me wrong if you can.

No body can prove you wrong because you think that if you're the last 1 to reply you're right

group selfie so selfie = taking a picture with a front camera, what happened to our world. group selfie is an innappropriate word it contradicts the meaning of taking a picture of yourself or one's self. selfie is already a stupidity made officially as a word, don't make it worst, group selfie sounds retard. when I'm hearing those words, i quickly react "lol, wut?" tho, groufie is a second level of stupidity but that is acceptable than group selfie, it should be group picture, selfie is not the same meaning of picture/portrait. selfie is made up word and it is an action word, an act of taking a photo of one's self. because of this made up words, young generation now a days don't know how to choose appropriate words on things, like some group of youngster asked me "to take a selfie of them". and I was like "wtf?!"

I don't use the word selfie the same way those youngters you mentioned used it. I have never met anybody who asks me to take a "selfie" for them anyway. To me, selfie means the person taking it is in the picture, hence "self". That's it. If somebody takes a photo of my group and the person is not in the group, it's neither a selfie or wefie to me. And personally it doesn't really matter which camera it is as long as I'm pointing it at myself to shoot. Just my take on this situation. I've never met anybody using the word "selfie" when somebody else is taking photos of them anyway. If those asked me so, (maybe) either I take photos of mySELF for them or I'll ask them to do it themSELVES. And I will keep saying group selfies sinces it's a selfie I take with a group. If you want my explanation on it, I would say self means the person taking the photo is in this it, and group means... group, lol. So yeah, a selfie with my group of friend is a group selfie. "Self" is the main/root part in "selves". "Ourselves" has "self" in it. Words don't have to stay in plural form all the time when you do combination and stuff like that, so "group selvies" can be out of the question. So, yeah, "let's take a group photo ourselves" --> group selfies. And group selfies is easier for me to say than groupies, wefies, or groupfies to me. Too mouthful. And soooo... yeah, we all have different ways to look at new made up words. You don't have to use those words though.

Yeah, when Samsung do it they call it innovation. But when Nokia (Microsoft) do it they say boo. LOL!

Nice attempt at playing the victim card. Samsung never claimed it to be 'innovation' nor anyone booed Nokia. Also, lets not forget that all these selfie trend was started by that famous Oscar selfie by ellen which was taken by a Samsung phone. Also, this selfie is again just mimicking the selfie taken at Samsung unpacked event this year. So yeah, MS is not really innovating as well. Just stop with the lame attempt of bringing Samsung and starting fanboy wars in an article which Samsung has absolutely nothing to do with. Your comment just makes you look jealous and insecure.

If you want to be left alone then post stupid comments on public forums and expect people not to reply to your idiocy. Write your thoughts in a diary or something if you wish to be left alone. Lastly, no need to get all ghetto on me 'I ain't even starting a fanboy war' .......lol
