Gear Review, How Good Is The Lg G4 Camera


An Android smartphone that"s all about its camera and a strange look

ByGareth Beavis21 December 2016


LG"s making a big giảm giá about the camera prowess of the LG G4, & rightly so: if you"re going khổng lồ release a new flagship phone, the screen, thiết kế, battery & camera should be the elements you get right before adding any bells and whistles on top.

The specs make for salivating reading: there"s a 16MPhường camera on the rear, and it"s fused with an f1.8 aperture that is designed khổng lồ deliver spectacular low-light ability. On top of that LG has added in a huge amount of control lớn the camera, allowing users to lớn choose the settings for pretty much any area of the snapper they wish khổng lồ play with.

The manual mode is excellent

That includes RAW tư vấn, which is baked inkhổng lồ Android these days & will attract some of the more photographically-minded among muốn the smartphone community.

However, there"s the necessary "Auto" and "Simple" modes that will let you just take snaps as & when you want to, getting the best picture you can without having khổng lồ mess around with the settings.

LG"s also touting the fact its camera loads in 0.6 seconds - coincidentally faster than Samsung"s 0.7 second opening speed on the Galaxy S6. However, where Samsung has added the quick open khổng lồ double tapping the trang chính button, LG"s speed is only when tapping the camera ibé.

You can open the camera using the rear volume key, double tapping it to lớn fire up the snapper, but that"s only when the phone is asleep - & it takes about two seconds khổng lồ load. That"s not slow, but it"s nowhere near as fast as Samsung manages.

In practice, the LG G4 is an accomplished camera, & up there with the best I"ve ever tested. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and iPhone 6 both offer phenomenal pictures just by framing and tapping the shutter button, & LG probably slips the G4 just in between these two in terms of picture chất lượng.

The low-light claims definitely hold up khổng lồ scrutiny - trying it in darker, shadowy places the results were amazing, even compared khổng lồ the Galaxy S6, which has excellent ability in this space too.

However, the processing LG places on top of its pictures is higher, so edges seem ever so slightly less sharp than that seen on the S6"s pictures - which I considered the gold standard in low light photography. It"s your choice though: slightly brighter pictures, more muddy results. The difference is very, very slight though.

In good light though, the LG G4 really comes inkhổng lồ its own. The laser autofocus will generally give good, sharp results và the colour and brightness levels are excellent.

That said, a quiông xã snap picture doesn"t always give sầu something sharp and in focus - that laser is either misfiring or not as impressive as the marketing sounds.

Overall, the LG G4 has a great camera, & will result in amazing pictures most of the time, with bright, clear & colourful images. The results are always too over-sharpened for my tastes, but that"s been a feature of LG"s camera prowess for years.

It"s worth noting that most of the above is talking about automatic mode, rather than the manual control, which gives brilliant pictures if you know how to play with the settings - manual focus is awesome, and altering the exposure and ISO settings never failed lớn get the right picture.

If you"re someone who knows what they"re doing with photography, this is a brilliant phone to play with - but for the automatic mode, it"s not quite as impressive. Very good, but just below the best I"ve seen.
