Which smartphone has the best front camera?

I do a lot of video calling so need a phone with a good front camera. Do any front smartphone cameras excel, or are they much of a muchness? Seems to be lots of 2MP...

The iPhone 5 front camera is only 1.2MP but is a lot better than some 2MP front cams that I have used. In fact, it may well be better than some 2MP or 3MP rear cameras in some phones. Number of MP really don't tell the full story. Note 2, HTC One S have pretty decent front cams, too.
Worst I have used in a while is on my Nokia N9, and I'm not sure it's the same module as on the Lumia 800... horrible. But I really don't use it.

Figured they were used more for video than stills tbh

True - in which case the MP figure is even less telling.

Especially if the resolution used is dependent on the IM software involved.

The N2's (and I assume S3's, as it's exactly the same module) 1.9mp front facing camera is much better than the 2mp job on the S2 and original Note.

Yes but it's a crappy unit so i doubt it's 5mp. and even if it is i doubt it's actually a good 5mp unit. Some Chinese dual sim phones do have good front cameras but i don't think this one does.
