Anonymous, 01 Aug 2017"an aperture of f/1.6, potentially the widest of any smartphone camera. " Nonsense, f-numbers ... moreYou are correct on sensor size. This is the reason why I hate articles and journalists, praising the values of dual camera setups without the drawbacks. They probably blindly believe it is superior as Apple implements one.
I do like the quite large sensor in Google's implementations from the Nexus 5X till now, however, they chose not to have OIS to avoid a camera hump.
I don't mind the G6 design but they have to improve their camera sensors to at least 1/2.5" before I'd consider dual camera setups.
Good! You see that the V30 is better than the G series as it should be: better camera, better SoC, better screen and probably so on. I can't wait to get my hands on the V30.
The second screen was good and still to be so. The wide-angle selfie camera requires to be upgraded in terms of LL performance. And the main camera should resort to using a bigger sensor. Lg g6 performed worser than the V20 did and V 30 must recover LG from this fault. The 1.6 aperture means that we won't get any bigger sensor than lg G6 got, so I dunno whether or not reguard this as a good news or the bad ones.
Nzi97, 01 Aug 2017Not to mention that lower f stop lead to morr shallow depth of field and can cause overexposed... moreNo, a small f number does not lead to overexposure in good light as smartphones are able to choose very short exposure times. When an image is overexposed, then the problem was either the algorithm or the user.
"an aperture of f/1.6, potentially the widest of any smartphone camera. " Nonsense, f-numbers say nothing (!) about how wide an aperture is without knowing the physical focal length. The LG G6 has a small focal length as it uses a small 1/3" sensor.
Even a smartphone camera with a f/0.95 lens and 1/5" sensor wouldn't be very special in low light, but extremely bad in good light (much noise).

Phone makers can't keep increasing the maximum aperture of their cameras. This only leads to compromised sharpness at the edges. The only way is to increase sensor size for lower noise levels. I believe it is possible for sensor sizes to keep increasing to at least 1/1.7", same as the compact camera Canon S100.
