This response is as bad the the OP......lol. Really,..... if your only so-so that doesnt warrant a good camera? If she is less than so-so should she just put a bag over her head and just show off the body? LOL

Seriously...which camera will you be using more? The back main camera or the FFC? The FFC camera on the GS3 is a 1.9 MP camera and most FFC's arent that great and are lower MP's than that. Other than that, i cant really help much. I do not take a lot of self pics to notice how it makes me look. Never used a dating site. But i have taken a few selfs with the FFC and i think it does well. Ive taken them in the dark with the flash an without the flash and i think its pretty decent but im no expert on what to look for. A picture is a picture to me.

Some people just dont photograph that well and look better in person.

Shooting self-portraits with the Galaxy S3

The Samsung Galaxy S3 offers, just like its predecessor, a 4x digital zoom lens, by ‘pinching’ the display, you automatically zoom in. To enhance image quality, the Samsung Galaxy S3 has an image stabilization function, via the photo settings menu you can turn on the 'Anti-shake' function, in order to counteract camera shake. This menu also has 13 different scene modes, as well as 3 different color effects. Additionally, you can adjust the flash settings. With the Galaxy S3, just like with the Galaxy S2, you can easily take self-portraits, thanks to the 1.9 megapixel camera on the front. With one tap on the screen, the camera is activated on the front, so that you can see how the photo will look.

----------------------------

Here is another review of self portraits with S3

The front facing camera remains nothing to write home about at just shy of 2MP and packing a sensor that looks a bit past its sell-by date. Pictures of yourself are good enough for a video chat, a quick self-portrait or squeezing a spot, but images do look flat, slightly grainy and a bit washed out. Thinking about it that could have just been how I looked on the day.

So apparently Iphone5 is superior when it comes to front facing pics.
That is info you should mull over. Personally i dont care. I dont have a iPhone 5 and as i said, i dont take many self pics. The FFC camera on any phone isnt that great really. It is meant more for video chat as stated earlier.

Maybe that because you go to sites where thats all you do?

Perhaps some Facebook people take more self shots than an average person. I notice many women change their profile picture every other day.
