However, if you don't like Pixel 3, you should choose Samsung Galaxy Note9, as it has the same rating for the selfie-camera, and Pixel 3 to 103 points.

"Apple's flagship iPhone XS Max produces some of the best still image and video quality in bright light conditions, but struggles more than its high-end competitors when the light gets dimmer". Most selfie cameras lag behind the main cameras of smartphones, and are often omitted from testing.

If you're concerned about how your current phone stacks up, here's the latest Selfie scores from DxOMark.

Beyond the image output, the photos are evaluated on the basis of the texture, noise generated and other fines aspects. The protocol includes taking images of human subjects at three different distances: 30cm, 55cm, and 120cm.

The French firm meanwhile has already subjected the more well-known of the phones to its latest tests and the results are both a mix of surprises to one that matches expectations. Self-portraits are also analyzed for bokeh effect, noise, and dynamic range.

So, which phones have the best selfie cameras?
