Please do a front camera test too, its kinda pointless to compare also the back camera, dont you take selfies?
both camera's are photo realistic and have lifelike photos. I couldn't tell the difference tbh
is the best option is like you say a ps4 o xbox one everybody have a diferent point of view and have a good way to use the smatphones.
Having in mind the imx258 sensor is nothing special and inferior to the g4/g5 sensors, then the g6 must have great optics in order to achieve such good results.
I'm an iPhone user, and I'd like to say that the G6's photos look MUCH better than the P10's. That's all. Have a nice day!
Why the back texture of LG looks like the P9 Plus.
Buy the phone that you love. Both phone are good in every aspect, I thought so.
Depends on you!
Simon, 07 Mar 2017He was actually correct, you are wrong. Smartphone sensors are not "tiny" anymore. Sony phones... moreAltough you are right about sensor size/physics aplied,you cant ditch software side/processing as you did.There is so much more than even that(e.g.lenses etc etc) so you cant just generalise:aham this one had 1/2.6" sensor it is better.
And to be honest difference between 1/3.0 and 1/2.6 are less than milimeter,or to be precise 0.8mm... so its not exactly groundbreaking difference,its not like full frame versus APS-C where difference is 400mm/square.
And to.be honest again,I would anyday take 1/3.0" sensor which are flush with the back of the phone over bigger bump ; )
First of all both the dual camera setups serve completely different purposes and even if you are conparing the main camera shots then compare g6 with p10 plus which has a similar aperture so we can see who has a better post processing and details....
Ever since the G4, LG has been very good at photography. In this shoot-out, the G6 seems to hold an edge over the P10. Maybe the P10 Plus with it's f/1.8 aperture should have been a better opponent. It's funny how the Leica images are now more saturated. And I am pleasantly surprised by the dynamic range of the wide camera on the G6. Anyhow, both are pretty superb smartphones that tempt you to leave your DSLR at home.
But ultimately I still prefer a single camera like that of Pixel over the G6's dual camera because each time I want to click a picture I don't want to decide whether I should capture more of the scene (wide-angle FOV) or have more quality per scene (better normal-FOV camera).
First, I'm probably not the right person to judge the creative aspect of monochrome images. Since I prefer color images and thats all there is to it - monochrome images add no value in my mind, but a wide-angle camera does - in certain situations it allows me to capture images that otherwise won't fit without a 360-degree camera. Which is expensive as a remote accessory.
Next, I disagree with conclusion: "The mobile photography has been coming up in leaps and bounds, and it's getting to a point it just might make sense to leave your bigger camera back home even when you are on holiday." You shouldn't tell people to leave their bigger camera back home even when they're on a holiday when you're comparing mobile to mobile. You could, potentially, draw such conclusion if you compared mobile photography to certain "bigger cameras" and found their performance either similar, or mobile phone performance "adequate" compared to needs of an average Joe(y). Right now you're telling me I should ditch my car and ride a bicycle since bicycles came a long way in last 20 years, even when going 300km away from home. Just because I can doesn't mean its a good idea. Riding a bicycle is tiring, and shooting without any sort of zoom is also tiring in certain situations. And certain 'big' cameras have certain advantages you can't get with mobile.
Anyways, thanks for the shootout, it was interesting to see actual camera samples and draw conclusions for myself.
What about the P10 plus seriously ?
The P10 is 599Â€, the G6 is 749Â€, the G6 must be un front of the P10 plus
Test sound a bit biased toward LG.
True that colors on P10 where a bit too saturated but you have really handy option in left side of camera option that set higher or lower saturation, but in terms of details its hard to say that G6 was better, is some areas you can see difference(eg antennas on roofs) but on others(leafs, walls) P10 show the same amount of details
Also P10 was way better at showing details in shadows, and overall it was better at keeping good balance between light and shadows, where LG had problem with that, and actually in some points lack of punchier colors are problem and shoots of G6 where a bit... boring.
The same with Night shoots, G6 where just dull and flat in some areas and it have really annoying lens flares effect
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2017That is only relevant when it comes to depth of field, which in the case of the tiny sensors t... moreHe was actually correct, you are wrong. Smartphone sensors are not "tiny" anymore. Sony phones has had 1/2.3 sensors for the past 5 years, the Pixel has 1.55um pixel size. That is only beaten by one inch sensor cameras starting at 800$ for modern marks.
You can defend this phone and I can sympathize, you like it. Unfortunately, you can't beat physics in terms of image sensors (yet). The G6 has a tinier sensor than even the G5. It is freaking 1/3. That is the tiniest out of any recent flagships, and even at 13mpx that means smaller pixel size than any brand out there. You can see that on those photos, and you will see that in comparisons with Samsung, HTC or Sony phones which, we now know, will have much better cameras, because they use bigger sensors. No matter how much they mess up processing, even if they do, that won't make up for the sensor size difference.
dd, 07 Mar 2017Samsung troll again....didn't you see the results? G6 already did great job! Megapixel is noth... moreActually it's worse than that, it's lower in mpx AND the sensor is smaller. Which means you have less mpx with same quality per mpx as on the G5.. Very, very unfortunately.
Those are some tiny sensors compared to the competition and unfortunately you can see that. It's close to 1/3. I have to say I expected much better. There's only so far you can go with aperture and processing if your sensor is not up to par. Because physics.
Personally I was hoping only the chipset is below par on the G6.. eh. If only it was really a value offering like LG promised. Seems like only hardware is "value", while the price is not.
Out n out.. without opening pictures in full size, LG G6 wins here..
G6 - 9/10
P10 - 8.2/10 :D
In this phone context of P10 and LG G6, it is no-brainer that LGG6 is an overall better phone compared to P10. To me they are in different league. Most people would prefer shooting rich in colour and contrast photos, so black and white comes second to most street photographers. P10 is okay but seems stay behind. Both vendors do produce good phones though, however LGG6 leads in this context. Off and out:
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2017So in G6 there is absolutely NO improvements over G5. Moreover, G6 has worse camera than G5, b... moreSamsung troll again....didn't you see the results? G6 already did great job! Megapixel is nothing but a number...
So in G6 there is absolutely NO improvements over G5. Moreover, G6 has worse camera than G5, because it has lower, 13 MP while the rest of the specs are the same (f/1.8, same pixel size, etc).
Compared to the G5:
G6's disadvantages are that it has worse camera (the same specs except that the resolution is lower) and non-removable battery. So G6 is a downgrade compared to the G5.
The only advantage of G6 is that it has heat pipes that cool the CPU/GPU and reduce the throttling only by 10-15% (if I remember correctly).
Also, their CPU and GPU is the same (S821 is just an overclocked S820).
The dual camera thing is nonsense. The wide angle camera is inferior again. The reason why LG increased it's resolution to 13 MP is to deceive and scam people to think that it has the same quality, while in fact it has worse quality: no OIS, f/2.4.
Also, the secondary camera should be optical zoomed (telephoto lens) because a zoom lens is much more useful than a wide angle one.
Of course, Samsung chose the best solution: you can buy lens case for S7 and Note 7 for which you can attach telephoto or wide angle lens. And this way you have all the advantages of main camera (wide aperture, same resolution, same image quality and OIS).
