Is 5 megapixels too much for a selfie cam?

Thoughts? Isn't that almost a little too sharp? I like the less detail on my face for my selfies. It's sort of why I got rid of my note 4. But it made me look pale and like a zombie. So maybe the 6 plus will be just as colorful.

I just hope they don't get rid of that cool effect almost "filter like" warm hue when you take pictures in the sun that was on the 6.

So you don't want a better FF camera? I don't get it. The higher the detail the better IMO. I hardly ever use the front camera unless I'm using FaceTime with BAE.

They have apps to help soften things up and post process.

Use the Facetune app. You can smooth, blur, reshape, and defocus your selfies. Perfect!

What the crap is a selfie?
A photo that you take of yourself using the front facing camera. It's easier than using the rear camera since you can see yourself on the phone screen while taking the pic.

Dude, What are you, in your twenties, or early thirties at most? You can take 5MP shots with absolutely nothing to worry about. Live it up, while you're still young and have a youthful appearance.

It's the old fogies like @Ledsteplin and myself who will want as little detail on our selfie pics as possible. :ROFLMAO: We might even break the iPhone with our ugly mugs. (joking of course)

Eo enjoy your 5MP selfies in good health while you still can!
