CNET First Look
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 ups selfie style two waysIs it still a "selfie" if you use the phone's 16-megapixel rear camera? Of course! Samsung's new feature makes the most of your self-portraits.
[MUSIC] If you're going to take a self portrait using your camera, it had better look good, right? I'm Jessica Dolcourt for C/net giving you a first look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 4s new features for selfie lovers like you. First, there's the classic picture you can shoot using the phone front facing camera. After adjusting your desired level of airbrushing you can take the photo when you're ready by tapping the camera button, or make things simpler by tapping anywhere on the screen, or by placing your finger over the heart rate monitor on the back. You can use a verbal command as well, like Cheese, Smile, Capture, or Shoot. [MUSIC] Selfies are fairly wide-angle by default any way, but you can extend that range with the mode that essentially takes a pre-pane panorama of your scene. It's called Slide Selfie. But you know what's even better than taking a 3.7 megapixle of your self? How about taking a 16 megapixel image using the Note 4's rear camera. The rear cam selfie mode frames your face and guides you through a series of beeps to position the camera correctly. The photo will automatically take after a countdown and can avoid those awful expressions you get from looking at yourself instead of looking at the front facing camera lens. You know the one I mean. That's it for this time, I'm Jessica Belcourt for CNet. Be sure to check out my full Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review, and other spotlight videos at CNet.com
