While LG doesn’t want you to compare its spanking new G6 flagship phone to either the monumentally failed G5 or the moderately successful V20, camera software feels like decidedly familiar territory at a first glance.
Basically, you seem to be looking at a very much V20-style snapper here squeezed into a smaller form factor phone, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Especially when many features are polished and refined this time around, with a few more than welcome additions aiming to take advantage of the unique 18:9 (or 2:1) display aspect ratio.
Even in pre-production form, the LG G6 appears to include significant improvements to zoom functionality, as well as expanded audio controls. Keep in mind that the rear-facing dual cam setup not only looks different now, sitting flush with the 5.7-incher’s snazzy glass back while also shifting the megapixel arrangement from 16 + 8 to a double 13.
As for the wide-angle front shooter, there’s not a lot of radical change to be noticed off the bat, but that’s what our in-depth reviews are for. Expect another one of those soon enough, and in the meantime, let us know what your first impressions of the LG G6 cameras are. Revolutionary, evolutionary or just more of the same?
