What Your Phone Needs To Take The Perfect Selfie

Let your selfie reach Beyoncé levels of amazing 


Self-portraits have been around for a long time (since 1839), but the term ‘selfie’ was only coined in 2005 by photographer Jim Krause. Since then, the selfie has been included in the Oxford dictionary, been named Word of the Year for 2013, and even has a TV show named after it. Plus, over a million selfies are taken a day, so to say we’ve become obsessed with taking selfies is an understatement. If you’re looking to upgrade your selfie-game, photo-edited apps and filters alone just don’t cut it — here are five smartphone add-ons that will make your mug look amazing at the photo-taking stage.
