At some point in time, selfies were nothing but just mere shots of your face, up close, used to highlight good scenery on the background. Quality was just short of dismal.

In-fact, some even equal their rear counterpart. These, in turn, have transformed taking selfies from a mere trend, to a skill and artform.

Companies like Vivo are at the forefront of creating technology that continues to enhance the smartphone experience. This includes upping the ante on the quality of selfies.

Thanks to the Super Wide-Angle Camera, users can easily take groufies or even a panoramic view of what’s in the background.

At night, the Selfie Softlight adds the proper amount of illumination, along with an exclusive Super Night Selfie mode which combines multiple frames into one image to make one’s face stand out.

There’s even a feature called Pose Master, which suggests the right poses for your background, making selfies even more creative.
