    I’ve spotted another phone here with a rotating camera, Gionee’s ELife E7 Mini, can anyone do a review of it Yuga? It’s a Mediatek Octa phone, costs around 13k..

  6. Easy E says:

    Top 5 based on what?
    – Based on the megapixel spec?
    – Based on if there’s a front-facing flash?
    – Based on the “contribution” lolol
    – Based on its price?
    – Based on the features?
    Wala man lang criteria.

  7. Easy E says:

    Syempre number 1 ang Oppo dahil may promo sila na kailangan ipakalat ng yugatech. Sali na!

    • JM says:

      medyo sabog ka din pre, cympre yung oppo rotating camera kaya kung anu ung rear un narin ginagamit na front, kaya maganda talaga ang quality ng image, unlike sa iba na pinilit lang sa pixel. isip isip din pag my time.

  8. jdGONEMAD says:

    would have helped us better in choosing if price was indicated. thank you.

  13. Paul says:

    Dapat included Ascend P7 because of its panorama selfie tanggalin na yung ZTE X6 BSI sensor pangit yan mas lalo yung E7 mini

  14. MrPhabletBulacan says:

    di ba dapat panalo ang Xperia C3 sa listahang ito? Kain lugaw lahat ng kalaban ng Xperia C3 oras na kumuha sa dilim dahil sya lang ang may front flash… Haller haller ang listahan na ito, nakagamit na ba kayo ng Xperia C3? Kung di pa, dapat di nyo na isinali…

    • MrPhabletBulacan says:

      2nd lang pala yung xperia c3, mahirap nga pala talunin yung oppo n1 dahil bumabaliktad 13 megapixel cam nun kasama yung flash. pero point
      stays huwag isama yung phone na hindi nyo pa nahahawakan man lang o nakikita ng personal…

    • wow says:

      so anong ipinaglalaban mo te? edi bilhin mo lahat yan at gawa ka ng sariling review mo. susme.

  15. fake says:

    this article is brought to you by oppo n1.

  16. iLUVkevin says:

    Kevin is so cute! I would love to have a selfie with you anytime! <3

  17. gen uy says:

    I think the Huawei P7 should be included here since it’s packed with 13MP for the rear and 8MP for the front. I mean, the 8MP would have sufficed enough already for you to really enjoy good selfie shots.

  18. chales says:

    I think SONY Z3 should be on the TOP SELFIE PHONES too.

  19. nikolai says:
