Take the best selfies with your Galaxy 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 with One UI and One UI 2.

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

Set up for the perfect selfie

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

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

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

Adjust selfie camera settings

You can also adjust the different settings for your selfies, such as your preferred shooting method, selfie colors, and filters.

Open the Camera app, tap Settings, and then swipe to and tap Selfie tone. Tap Cool, Original, or Warm to change the color tint of your selfie, and then tap Set when you’re finished. 

Tap Shooting methods for various options that will make it easier for you to take photos. You can press the Volume key or use voice control to take a photo or video, or add a floating shutter button that can be moved around the screen. If you're taking a group selfie, it might be easier to simply show your palm to the screen to take the photo.

On your Note20 device, you can edit additional preferences as well. Open the Camera app, tap Settings, and then tap Settings to keep. Tap Camera mode to automatically start the last used mode in the app, and tap Selfie angle to use your previous angle again. You can tap Filters to re-apply the same filters you have applied in the past.

Camera modes in One UI and One UI 2

Your phone's camera has multiple camera modes, with everything from Pro mode to Panorama. No matter what you're taking a picture of, it will look extra fabulous.

Open the Camera app, and swipe through the available modes at the bottom. You can also swipe to and tap MORE for additional modes.

If you don’t see a specific camera mode on your One UI device, you can add it. Open the Camera app, then tap Settings, and then swipe to and tap Camera modes. Tap Edit modes and select the desired mode(s).
