Group of friends using the Xperia C3 Android smartphone to take a selfie

Tips and tricks for the perfect selfie

Good lighting is key

Lighting will make or break your selfie. For best results stand with the sun or light source in front of you so your face is highlighted. If you’re taking a selfie at night or in a dimly lit place, use Superior Auto and the soft LED flash on your Xperia C3 and paint your selfies with a natural wash of light.

Say it with a smile

Get a friend to make you laugh and use the smile detection feature on your Xperia C3 to capture your genuine fun side. No need to press a button, just smile. Not in a smiley mood? Then just be natural and use the handy camera button on the side of the phone to snap yourself reading a book, sipping a coffee or chatting to a friend.
