Of course, what good is taking a selfie if you can't immediately share it? Good news: Since these models already have a direct Wi-Fi connection to your phone (remember, your phone is the remote control), you can download your shots straight to your device, and edit and upload from anywhere. Just note that since these models are all about ease of use and automation, you'll likely be disappointed with a pure selfie drone if you are an experienced drone flyer. Instead, look for full-fledged drones that happen to have selfie-centric shooting features (I included a couple here).

Modular phones, dual screens, 3D anything. Risky designs are there to gain an edge. But, uh, they don't always work. Take modularity, for instance. LG's G5 and its snap-on parts sold so poorly, the LG G6 goes back to basics. Google also effectively shuttered its Ara project for modular phones in September 2016. This prototype from phone maker Yezz illustrated how the swappable parts would work. Another Yezz concept highlighted how customizable Ara was meant to be. That leaves Lenovo's Moto Z line, which uses magnets to snap on additional parts, like this camera Mod.
