Take the Best Selfies with Your Phone

Take Selfies on your phone

Selfies: you know you love 'em. Luckily, your phone comes with special features like a front-facing camera, built-in filters, and different camera modes so you can take the best possible selfies.

Note: Available screens, settings, modes, and features may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and model.

Set Up for the Perfect Selfie

If you want to give your selfies some extra pizzazz, use the beauty features in your Camera. They'll provide the right lighting or effects to make the picture really stand out. Follow these steps:

Open the Camera app and make sure front facing camera is activated by swiping up or down on the screen or touching Flip Camera.

To use a different Camera mode such as Video or Live focus, swipe left or right. Touch Filter, to add cool filters like Ivory. And finally, touch Capture (or the Volume keys) to take that perfect selfie.
