LG set a high standard for phone cameras with the V10, so it was something of a disappointment to find many of our favorite features missing on the G5. We got a great wide angle shooter, but lost almost all control over our video. The G6 represents something of a rebirth for the G series. Walking away from gimmicks like modular pieces, instead bringing water resistance and wireless charging (in the USA). Does the G6 dual camera get a similar makeover? Does the G line now compete against the V phones? Let’s take a closer look at the cameras on the LG G6!
Smartphones have near completely decimated the point and shoot camera market. The all in one gadget we keep in our pocket is more than a match for smaller standalone cameras, and is more convenient to keep at the ready. Over the last several years, photo and video quality from these portables has improved significantly, and we’re increasingly relying on our phones for near-professional grade content creation. If we’re relying on these products more like we would traditional cameras, should we examine their performance similar to how we would review a standalone camera?
Our Real Camera Review series digs deep into phone camera imaging, taking a close look at photo and video output in real world conditions, and using consistent samples for viewers to compare various phones against each other. Want to see how this LG G6 compares against an HTC 10, Huawei Mate 9, Sony XPERIA, or LG V20? We’ve got you covered. This is the most complete phone camera review series available on the internet, and it can’t continue without your support, by sharing these videos on your favorite social networks.
