Smartphones have all but made useless the dedicated point-and-shoots and are now starting to venture into DSLR territory when it comes to features. Of course, there's no substitute for a large sensor and there's only so much you can do with a tiny smartphone imager as physics is pretty impossible to find a way around.
That said, the LG V10 has what is likely the best all-round camera setup on a smartphone today. 16MP resolution, optically stabilized fast f/1.8 lens, laser autofocus, and an LED flash can hardly leave you wanting on the hardware end. And when others have been upping megapixel count on their front cams, LG went all out and installed not one but two units - one for regular shots, one for super-wide selfies.
An area, which can use some improvement with most smartphone manufacturers is manual control, but it's hard to find fault with the LG V10 in this respect. Sure it has a full Auto mode, but if you want you can take over and adjust every bit of the exposure, have manual focus and white balance, all the while looking at a live histogram.
But where the V10 stands without competition is manual video control. Frame and bit rate adjustment, precise tuning of the volume of all three mics, a gain slider - plenty of exclusive features.
We tried not to miss anything in our detailed look at how the camera operates and we've focused on image quality and manual video controls in our video review of the LG V10's camera. Enjoy it, and be sure to check out the old-fashioned written review as well.
I think we should pity you right now since the v10 is already available here in our own respective countries.
Exactly. LG is not even bringing it to South Africa. Bought the Samsung Note 5 Titanium Silver today.
