    If by "taking awesome selfies" you mean taking the worst selfies ever, then I would have to agree.

    When will these stupid cell phone makers realize that wide angle front facing cameras are the worst thing to happen to selfies?! It warps your face and everything on the outside.

    Whenever I take a picture with my S5, I look either like an alien or my body is that of a balloon. And trust me. I'm naturally skinny. SO SO stupid.

    An undistorted full frame head shot requires at least a focal length 1.6X the sensor's diagonal measurement.

    So what you really "need", are smaller sensors, and longer lenses. But then you'd have to also grow people with longer arms.

    I'm kind of hoping that the selfie trend would die out. Really, who needs to see something like Dame Judi Dench without make up.

    But, beings as, "on the 6th day God created man in his own image", I surmise that the unrepentant onslaught of horrifically bad self portraiture will continue, fester, and spawn.
