The 12 Selfie Sins We're All Guilty Of

It’s no fun to sin alone, and since everything’s better with friends, that goes for selfies too. Research by Huawei shows that groufies (that’s a group selfie) feature an average of five people including three girls and two guys.*

1. The "this famous person is my close personal friend!" selfie. / Via

Oh, really? You're gonna hang out next week? Right, right.

2. The "ugly friend" selfie. / Via

You don't even know her, and you insisted on a photo so you'd look thin comparatively. Everyone knows. But look at those cheekbones! What a great friend.

3. The "loved-up new couple" selfie. / Via

Guys, guys. Get a room.

4. The "imaginary boyfriend took this picture of me" selfie. / Via

"Bae caught me slippin."

5. The "look at my gross dinner" selfie. / Via

You never truly realise how much work photographers put into recipe books than when you try and take a picture of your amazing dinner, and it comes out looking like a gross, globby mess.

6. The "#nofilter" selfie. / Via

Stop lying. It had at least eight filters on it!

7. The "I did not wake up like this at all" selfie. / Via

That's a good half hour of make-up. You've been awake for hours. Actual hours.

8. The "I went to the gym; look how buff I am" selfie.


What's the point of going if you can't tell people you went?

9. The "my life is amazing compared to yours" selfie. / Via

You know what we're talking about. The beach. Just anything on the beach.

10. The "duckface" selfie. / Via

YOU know.

11. The "forgetting real people can see what I'm doing" selfie.

Not everyone lives in your phone. It's easy to forget sometimes.

12. And the attempted group shot: / Via

Generally these don't work because A) your camera is terrible or B) some guy saw you taking a photo and...

...that guy decides to be in the photo.

We’re all guilty of selfie sins, but at least with groufies, our friends are doing it too. With the panoramic selfie feature and Ultra Snap shot function on Huawei’s Ascend P7 smartphone, you won't miss a single moment.
