… why your selfies don’t turn out as well as you’d like?


The main reason for this is that the smartphone camera quality for front facing selfies is a fraction of the quality of rear facing photos.
For example, the Samsung S4 has a 13-megapixel rear camera but a 2-megapixel front camera. The Samsung S5 ups the rear camera to 16-megapixel but the front remains at 2. The iPhone 5 and 5S have similar differences between their rear and front cameras.
