Apple iPhone 6s Plus vs LG V10: quick blind camera comparison

Apple iPhone 6s Plus vs LG V10: quick blind camera comparison

These are two of the best large phones you can buy at the moment: the Apple iPhone 6s Plus and the LG V10.

Vote for the image you like better

They are special for one other reason, though: both of them have truly outstanding cameras. The iPhone 6s Plus boasts a new 12-megapixel shooter with f/2.2 lens, while the LG V10 sports a 16-megapixel main camera with wide, f/1.8 lens. Both phones also feature optical image stabilization (OIS) that should help stabilize the camera in low light and result in crispier images.

However, a camera is much more than just detail: it's mostly about the impact of an image, its colors, the mood it conveys. Using our brand new 1v1 image comparison tool, we're now able to show you just that in a very convenient way. So here's a simple question: which images do you like better? Vote for your preferred image (and let us know why you voted in the comments below). We'll count the votes and reveal which of the two cameras stands for what image in a few days.

Zoom to actual pixels is missing. Somone can definitly tell whitch phone is from those photos because of the different hue in them. Yellowish vs blueish

The V10 really excels in low light. But the review score is 7/10. Why PA?

Mxyzptlk is a known troll. He cuts up all Android devices, and then he will praise Apple. So don't take anything he states as the truth. We all know the V10 has a superior camera and audio recording compared to anything Apple currently has to offer.

Lol really. Producing images like this? Cool if you think so. The V10 is a beast. If you have time It's untouchable.

This could be anything but blind! It's easy to tell the difference between a 12 and 16 MP camera!

P.S. Cannot vote from #3 to #11!

yeah right,
wide Field of view = V10
small Field of view = the other phone

Meh, PA is such a fanboy of Apple and Samsung. I own the V10 and a Note 4, my gf owns an iPhone 6S and there simply no way that pictures come out so badly on the V10 as they are here. Apple's camera is just ok compared to them. They either fiddle with the manual mode on the V10 to make it crap. There was once a poll when the G4 just came out and it obliterated the others but the poll mysteriously vanished. :D I think PA takes money from certain OEM's to make their products better which is pathetic.

The V10 pics are winning. What are you talking about?

21. marorun (Posts: 3151; Member since: 30 Mar 2015)


Most of V10 pic are clear winner ( bigger field of view give the hint wich one are V10) on the other hand in some picture i liked the Apple result better. Its might be because they did something to fake the test but both camera work differently so its may just be thats in some case.

Not in the daylight pics. The yellow cast in those, clearly gives away the iPhone, but those seem to be largely favored of the V10 daylight pics.

Lg's photo tend to be a little in purpose. Since their display naturally are cold, with great capabilities in showing more red, green, yellow. It has wider POV. Better dynamic range and contrast at the same time. Noise is handled better, in fact the best one in low light. The compression can be stronger sometimes.

It is an unusual move from PhoneArena to show Apple in "a bad light".

V10 in cameras category plays in different league.

the slider is realy nice tool - well done PA

The Lumia 950 and 950 XL have an even better camera...

32. MrElectrifyer (Posts: 2166; Member since: 21 Oct 2014)


That was somewhat way too easy to tell apart, thanks to the awesome new sliders. Very well done on that idea PhoneArena. A, C, F, G, J, L and P all look much better than their counterpart...wonder which phone that is.

N is slightly overblown but M makes the walk-way look too dark...I'll go with N.

Q and T are overblown but R and S make seeing the labels and other information more difficult...I'll go with Q and T.

As for the selfie, 1 gives more focus and clarity of the subject.

Next time please remove the exif. I have a chrome plugin that show exif information of the picture including GPS location.

I prefer iPhone for consistent results and more gentle exposure.

In picture "O" there are lens flare light lines caused by finger print wax on the lens cover glass I guess or am I wrong? Should be cleaned for test...

35. Astoni (Posts: 649; Member since: 28 Sep 2013)


its actually very easy to see who's the iphone 6s and the v10.. the thing is, v10's pics has more detail, but is overexposed with colour and warmth. While Iphone has the more natural colour for once..

V10 takes the quality while iphone wins at colour..

38. nodes (Posts: 681; Member since: 06 Mar 2014)


so colour is not quality?

42. Astoni (Posts: 649; Member since: 28 Sep 2013)


Yes colour is part of the quality. but Details and depth detail takes part aswell, colours can be adjusted.

This is nearly impossible, both are very good but where one has a very slightly sharper image RGB is not quite as faithful and vice versa. I would go for the one with the slightly sharper image as the most important photos are taken during daylight (For me anyway) but there is almost nothing in it. Basically one looks better than the other at first glance but in close detail you can see detail not quite as good, does this matter to most people?? Don't know but it does to me :)
