Take the best selfies with your One UI 2 phone

Galaxy phones are known for their amazing cameras, and the new One UI 2 update makes using the camera even easier. It has a new setup where switching between modes or settings is faster and more user friendly. Now you'll never miss an opportunity for the perfect selfie.

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.
