LG G5 Real Camera Review: Dual Camera Fun

By Juan Carlos Bagnell April 13, 2016, 10:01 am

You won’t find a more in-depth examination of a phone camera anywhere else online…

Many companies have tried producing phones with dual cameras. HTC for example has played with both 3D and depth camera sensors on various EVOs and M8’s. Instead of depth information or color accuracy, LG’s approach is to offer two completely different cameras and separate shooting modes.

One camera has a standard field of view which is very similar to the G4 it replaces. A 16MP camera, 1/2.6″ sensor, 28mm equivalent focal length and an f/1.8 aperture. The other camera is an extreme wide angle shooter. An 8MP sensor is paired with a roughly 8mm equivalent focal length lens and an f/2.4 aperture. The two don’t really work together outside of some fun features. Do these different cameras offer advantages over a single sensor solution, or is this just another imaging gimmick? Here’s our full in-depth camera review!
