G6 uses dual IMX258 camera sensor which is similar to Xiaomi Mi5s Plus. This is relatively old sensor, introduced in 2014. lt is decent, but not great.
I like the G6 its very natural and crisp photo. G6 is not that oversaturate, doesnt blown the photo when zoom in and contrast. For me P10 is a good camera but on the wine glass part when you zoom in the glass isnt that crisp its bit blur on its side. Then it tends to be so dark than the G6.
PLAYER SLAYER, 07 Mar 2017Actually, both take stellar quality photos, like how this article edits one. Maybe you're just... morewhat are you rambling about ?
FYI I've got Z5 and as secondary phone ASUS zenfone max with 5000 mAh ....
...btw S7 is an excellent phone with great overall hardware and camera , but still I wouldn't buy it because of it's crappy software and physical home button + capacitive keys , those suck !
Both phone takes decent photo and i would buy lg g6 for other reasons. =)
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 599€, the G6 is 749€, 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.
