#1 Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus  (Rs.48,575)

Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus


The list of selfie taking smartphones will remain incomplete without the iPhone being mentioned in it and this is no different.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have 8MP primary cameras and a 1.2 MP front camera, but don’t let the low MPs fool you. They are more than capable of delivering great pictures. The hardware as well as software as usual is top notch from Apple.

The only grouse? The astronomical price. But then it’s an iPhone right? It’s not supposed to be cheap.

So these are the phones which we think are the best phones in India currently for taking selfies. So if you have a narcissist in you and if you are one of those who keep changing their Facebook and Twitter profile pics regularly do let us know what you think.
