One of the more popular uses of smartphones is their ability to capture photos instantly and conveniently. The presence of a front camera on phones allows users to take photos of themselves while seeing the results on the front screen. This gave birth to the term “selfie.” One common problem with taking selfies is that you may not be able to extend your hand far enough to include more than a couple of people in a photo. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has the solution for that: introducing Wide Selfie Mode.

Wide Selfie Mode lets you pan your phone from left to right and automatically stitches those images to form a single wider photo. This will allow more people to fit into the selfie. Learn how to take wide selfies with your Galaxy Note 4.
