Finally, we’ve got the selfie test and right off the bat you’ll notice that there are two distinct schools of thought here when it comes to selfies. The first, is to keep things as real as possible (iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X) while the second is to beautify and whiten (Samsung Galaxy Note8 and Huawei Mate 10 Pro).

It really depends on what kind of person you want to project to the world but I like to keep it real so I’d pick the iPhone 8 Plus’ selfie over the rest. It’s crisp with a slight boost in colour saturation and I think it is most faithful to real life.

Why didn’t I pick the bokeh-ed iPhone X, you ask? Well, I honestly don’t think the iPhone X’s selfie portrait is that great especially considering this big separation fail:
