Take the Perfect Selfie with a Front-Facing Flash
Selfies are loved by some, while utterly hated by others. Taking a photo of yourself is quite the controversial sign of modern society, and the activity even presented itself in this year’s Oscars ceremony. Taking a good selfie requires seeing one’s face on the screen. It also requires a decent camera, and a flash never hurts. That’s why Oppo added rotating camera to the N1.
Those of you who don’t want to cut off half your head when using the rear-facing camera should check out an app by XDA Senior Member elesbb. As we all know, the vast majority of front-facing cameras don’t offer a camera flash. Photos taken in the dark generally have quite a bit of noise or motion blur. However, your phone’s screen is more than capable of shedding some light—literally—and making your photo a little bit better.
The app is pretty simple to use, and its instructions are briefly described in the original thread. You’ll be up and running with a good photo in less than ten seconds, so even selfie newbies won’t find it too difficult.
You can find more information and get the application from the application thread. Now go take some really good selfies!

We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device. The Lolliflash is a Lollipop-shaped external flash and the ZenPower is a thin 10,000mAh external battery. In today's video, Jordan shows off the Lolliflash and the ZenPower Accessories. Additionally, ASUS and XDA have teamed up to give away 5...
