Anonymous, 12 May 2016Woow HTC 10 great camera I think with the latest update htc 10 will beat s7 and g5How much time we should give to HTC to sort its camera?They are already 3 months late to the party and their firmware needs improving(in more than few areas) just to match the LG and Sammy.
HTC indeed win in couple of tests,but no hard feelings...they are still behind LG and Sammy.
History will record forever, just two phones, made in the first quarter of the year 2016, namely LG G5 and HTC 10 . My book that predicts the future, shows the truth.
The podium order, is the following, 1st place-HTC and LG. 2st place-HTC and LG, 3rd place-HTC and LG.
Others are only outsiders.
wow,great job by htc.htc does it better. as all of we can see htc is far better. also htc is very very better in design and body quality and lg is most ugly. in other hand htc has the best ui and htc sense is very fast and quick and htc added mist customization to sense.very well done , thanks htc
htc 10 has the best camera with no doubt and is my first choice.s7 and g5 are good but behind htc10. i recommend htc for photographer
Anonymous, 13 May 2016Understandable. I am not all for looks so I will always take the best performing phone. So I w... moreThe body of the g5 is quite flawed though. Especially the magic slot. People have all sorts of problems with it, like how the gap isn't even and stuff. There are also problems of light bleed and stuff with the phone. And the thick layer of paint on the metal, so it doesn't even feel like metal and it easily scratches off. Then there's the usual benefits of the s7 like display and battery.
In regards to camera its only for some shots the g5 is better. For the most part they're basically equal and it comes down to preference.
I wouldn't recommend the g5 to anybody personally. I'd sooner recommend the htc10 for having the most premium metal build and best selfie camera, at least it doesn't have the flaws of the g5 build. S7 takes the cake though.
I am photograper, I am photograper, I am photographer. I don't care who you are!
Love my S7 edge, the auto focus is really fast, with potential hardware and Pro / manual mode, I think S7 can beat G5 with old sensor.
slimkhid115, 13 May 2016The LG G5 may have had more wins but I'll still take the s7 edge over it. The LG doesn't look ... moreUnderstandable. I am not all for looks so I will always take the best performing phone. So I wont even consider HTC out of the 3.
Just by looks I would take S7
Functionality is hard choice between S7 and G5. I prefer camera over all so it will be G5 for me.
HTC.... I don't have a reason to choose it.
Grey1213, 12 May 2016Depends. Its between s7 and g5. I'd say s7 comes out on top because it has superior autofocus.True. Beauty and brains win this round
The LG G5 may have had more wins but I'll still take the s7 edge over it. The LG doesn't look presentable. I'm not a fan of its design. It look like an alien technology prototype
Anonymous, 12 May 2016I am a photographer and all I can say is this test is not properly made.
1. If you take pictu... morehi,if you are photographer then you have to know that RAW format in htc 10 is far better than others.also htc has the best manual setting and shooting all years from 2013 with the one M7 until now.remeber that last year M9 has many mistake in camera and after update got better.but M9 have had the best manual mode in compare to S6/edge and G4. both have better camera in auto and many others conditions but M9 is better in manual mode and selfie too.(I have many years experiences about photography,design and printing).also your opinion is out of work and non sense.it's clear your opinion is witten by bigotry and you don't like htc,just this and wrote those words just for prove that you dislike htc and all other reason and open pictures and analyse and ... are mistake and not real. it's clear that you hate htc and .....you can grab G5 but can't say htc camera is behind G5 or S7.great job by htc forced you to wrote those non sense words.
good luck dear friend.
hi brothers.at first I have to tell the fact that all 3 are great in camera but many mistake!!!!!!! htc 10 camera got update that increase camera ability and fixes especially in bokeh and makes htc10 camera better....(we have M9 camera that isn't best between 2015 flagships but after update gets better and closed to it's direct rivals/why gsmarena doesn't edited the M9 review and pictures??????? and why now about htc 10 ????????)
and now.i have to tell again all 3 are great but htc is better. in 2nd page and first test named still camera all can see htc 10 shots better than 2 other and gsm mentioned that htc 10 is better in outdoor and indoor but in winner part for outside gsm said TIED!!!!!!!! why? when htc 10 is better and pictures show and prove htc 10 is better gsm has to write htc10 in outside winner.....
other is front camera.if lg g5 is better in daylight selfie capturing then htc 10 is better in low light situation. and nobody can say which is better.
I SAY AGAIN ALL 3 ARE GREAT IN CAMERA BUT HTC 10 IS BETTER,AND THIS IS THE ONLY FACT(LAST YEAR SAMSUNG AND LG FLAGSHIPS WERE BETTER THAN M9 IN BACK CAMERA BUT THIS YEAR HTC FLAGSHIPS IS BETTER IN CAMERA)
these images was not taken at the same time and not in the same angle, for that, i'd pick G5 but S7 has better autofocus, HTC10 has great quality however it has too much ISO, contrast and brightness
Sam, 12 May 2016Was this test done with the firmware update that addressed camera issues?It`s not fair if the firmware was not the latest even HTC made a great job and took his superior place in this review
I am a photographer and all I can say is this test is not properly made.
1. If you take pictures with a smartphone then in 99.99% of the cases you would hold that device with your hand and not use a tripod. --> To do a properly test all 3 devices should be linked to a support (which the user should hold with his hands) and triggered with remotes.
2. You can clearly see that the phones are not placed in the same position --> I assume the reviewer took more photos with each device and choose what to publish (not fair at all)
3. The reviewer should analyze the manual mode of each device (here the LG G5 wins by a mile if the user knows the basics about photography).
Now, I looked at the photos and analyzed them from a different perspective that of the reviewer: How clear the image is, where is the focus, how is the depth of the image, white balance, the entire image experience and what is closer to actually we see.
To me this is the order: G5 a little bit better than S7 and S7 much better than HTC.
If I were to take pictures of people, moving subjects, low light conditions without a tripod, I would use the S7. For anything else I would use the G5.
I downloaded all the pictures and analyzed them on full screen (24' screen).
Sheamus, 12 May 2016I am a photographer and I can say, by heart HTC 10 has clearest and detailed photography shots.You are not a photographer and actually HTC made the worth photos --> these are the only ones without any depth. They actually look washed out and they lack the details and clarity of the other 2 devices.
A photographer knows that colors and white balance can be easily adjusted but unclear details can not be sorted out.
Anonymous, 12 May 2016So the best camera phone so far is G5 ?Depends. Its between s7 and g5. I'd say s7 comes out on top because it has superior autofocus.
