Only you know best how you wish to look in a photograph. And all you need is a capable front camera to capture a stellar selfie. Long gone are the days when we used to refer to the front camera as secondary. As the smartphone camera technology evolved, so did the focus on the front shooter, rightfully since they are our self-expression.

But how do you go about choosing a great front selfie camera?

Well, many things matter including the size of the sensor, the aperture of the lens, presence or absence of secondary selfie camera, perhaps even autofocus.

But as is the case with cameras, consumers put a certain amount of faith in the high megapixel count or high camera resolution. The megapixel specs is merely an indication of how many pixels a camera can capture and how big an image it can reproduce. Camera resolutions aren’t the right metric to judge camera quality, but they aren’t worthless either.

A camera with more pixels can gather more data for the software to work with, thus resulting in a more detailed image with a wider dynamic range.

In 2019, we have seen a surge in phones using 32MP selfie cameras. Most of these bin four pixels to one, resulting in crisp 8MP shots. So, if you are interested in phones with 32-megapixel selfie shooters, here’s a list you may refer to:
