    why is it the “World’s Best Selfie Smartphone”? Because it’s Sony? Other brands have “selfie” smartphones too that have front LED flash. but, aside from that, they have auto-focus and some with BSI. some with as much as 8MP. So, why “the world’s best”? have you tried it yet?

    BTW, don’t get me wrong. I like Sony. I have a Sony Xperia Z, been using it for more than a year. I’m just not a fan of it’s camera. I’ve used other brands that take better pictures.
