That'll make the LG G5 the game changer not the IPhone.

G5 wasn't the first and it's cameras are not that good.
LG even commented that they felt no major camera improvements were necessary, which is why they choose a gimmicky dual camera setup, would not surprise me if the LG G4 took better images.
Good thing Samsung disagreed and brought in an amazing low light camera for the Galaxy S7.

This is the perfect post for this article... +1

Well, wide angle is not really a gimmick. But yes, Samsung has a beast of a camera.
28. AlikMalix (Posts: 5238; Member since: 16 Jul 2014)
i'm not arguing with you, But i've seen photos fro LGG5's wide angle it looks like panorama shots - how is that different? (btw, i can control how wide the photo is when taking photo just like the 135 degree angle LGG5's camera). The only thing a single snap helps vs panorama spanning is when there's moving objects like people in the shot... But is there anything different?
I was thinking that dual camera is something used for depth definition (short and far focus) to make photos look SLR-ish...
I dont care for 3D, dont care for angle shots that look more like fish-eye lens than wide photo, or using it individually as two different camera's....
I want it to make better photos - that's it... if apple uses dual camera module for 3d shots - i'll sweep it under the rug as a gimmick just like "live photos" - it's fun for the first few days after that it's turned OFF....

Well it kind of is, with some good software you can quickly patch images together similar to a panorama shot and the result due to the superior camera will end up better.
There is no need for a wide angle camera, there is no demand for it.
I'm wondering if they did any market research at all.

As Alik said if you want a wide picture with moving object your panorama mode will look pretty funny.

So you are one of the lucky ones to have a G5 with finished software huh. Cause I was under the impression it wasn't being released until April.
Love how idiots comment about unreleased products.
53. chenski (Posts: 363; Member since: 22 Mar 2015)
Exactly, people love to jump to conclusions

Love moronic hater who judge before seeing result.

Apple needs to lift their game this year. LG and sammy continues to make great devices. Apple needs to focus on camera this year.

There isn't much they can do since the sensors are supplied by Sony from their offering
40. ibend (Posts: 3862; Member since: 30 Sep 2014)
so is samsung's, lg's, and nomerous other brands...
they use sony's sensor o.O

With S7 being gorgeous phone, seems good battery, top screen, top camera, first f1.7 lens on a phone camera, great features, SD slot, water resistant, the iPhone 7 needs to do what iPhone 5 did to 4. It needs a new epic design with brand new features. Also if they keep going without wireless charging and quick charge then I will start believing they give 0 f**ks about battery life and convenience around charging wirelessly and quick charge.
6. Unordinary (Posts: 1285; Member since: 04 Nov 2015)
Wireless charging is a joke. If there's a cord coming from the wall to the charging device and the phone needs to be on top of that charging device, that's not really "wireless" is it? Also, many people use their phones in bed while charging. You mean to tell me that you enjoy holding a brick or thick cylinder against your phone while your browse PA lol?
Quick Charge - You're spot on. Before Apple had big phones, their phones charged very fast (for obvious reasons). Now it's time to address their current issue, the same issue Samsung had for many years: Slowly charging your phone.
7. kevin91202 (Posts: 526; Member since: 08 Jun 2014)
Like with all non-fruit devices, it's a about choice. You don't have to use wireless charging if you don't want to. But at least you have that CHOICE. With the fruit, choices are limited. Very limited.
8. zig8100 (Posts: 227; Member since: 13 Dec 2012)
Its great for just throwing it on the Charge Circle it even charges faster like that then a iPhone with a cord.
9. Shocky (unregistered)
Wireless charging is awesome, only joke here is you.,
43. Ahovking (Posts: 685; Member since: 03 Feb 2015)
It's not Wireless charging.. its contact charging fanboy.
47. catze86 (Posts: 692; Member since: 07 Dec 2015)
And it doesnt need wire to charge the phone. The wire just for to connect to the power source... iBoy.
It does need contact, but it doesn't wire to charge the phone.
Why is so hard to understand this simple thing? *sigh*
57. marorun (Posts: 3393; Member since: 30 Mar 2015)
I hate apple lol ..
Still if you dont have any cable from the charging pad will its charge the phone? nope so its has a wire so its not fully wireless :)
Thats like Bell wireless television in Canada.
There is a cable from the modem to the power source and an HDMI cable from the modem to the television.
So not really wireless is it?
56. marorun (Posts: 3393; Member since: 30 Mar 2015)
Wireless charging is a joke cant use the phone as its charge.
10. Martin_Cooper (Posts: 1373; Member since: 30 Jul 2013)
It doesn't have to have wireless charging, but it NEEDS to either have huge battery increase with a super fast quick charge. Or at least normal battery with again quick charge.
It might sound super stupid but its really convenient leaving your phone on a plate than looking for a cable. You just stop thinking about cables and charging. All you do is leave your phone on a plate next to you like you would normally on your desk etc. But still nothing super important.
14. bigsimpd (Posts: 71; Member since: 13 Jan 2012)
LOL you are dead on and besides the battery on my iphone 6 plus is awesome I don't need to carry around a charging pad it last just fine unlike Android I don't loose half my battery by it just sitting and not even using it
15. Martin_Cooper (Posts: 1373; Member since: 30 Jul 2013)
The issue is with the non plus model which has horrible battery, its the only reason and I mean only reason I sold my iPhone 6(dont like the plus, personally its too big of a phone for 5.5").
21. darkkjedii (Posts: 20086; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
100% agreed. I have the Note, so it gets thru the whole work day fine, but my iPhone lasts quite a bit longer.
58. marorun (Posts: 3393; Member since: 30 Mar 2015)
I hate some apple lover...
my moto x play loose about 2% with 12 hours standby so yeah loose half my battery sure moron..
16. catze86 (Posts: 692; Member since: 07 Dec 2015)
Wireless charging is you dont need to charge your phone in conventional way. The wire is just for to connect to the power source. And I hope I dont need explaint to you about it. And Samsung have battery case that charge your phone.
Do you live under the rock?
44. RebelwithoutaClue (Posts: 2753; Member since: 05 Apr 2013)
Perhaps its a joke to you, for me it's a lot more convenient. I have several pads (including an ikea lamp) at home and at work. And when I'm close to one, my phone is on it (unless already full). So never any problem using it in bed, since it's never (close to) empty anyway. Nor am I even long periods on my phone (I don't game on my phone) and put it on the charger pad on my nightstand in between.
And while true wireless charging that tech companies are developing, will be more advanced and convenient, I've more than enjoyed the induction version until now.
59. marorun (Posts: 3393; Member since: 30 Mar 2015)
Good for you but its still a joke for most ppl.
i dont feel like paying for pad to put all over the place when a simple USB cable can plug in any usb port and charge my phone.
For me this is more convenient.
Beside i have a charging cable thats retract itself and is super small and attached to my key.

The copycats are at it again. First, they copy Samsung's "Plus" moniker. Now they want to borrow Xiaomi's "Pro" designation for the phones. What's next: iFone Galaxy Redmi Pro Plus Note edge?
12. aikoo (Posts: 85; Member since: 27 Feb 2016)
There is nothing "Pro" about iOS. Let's get Apple to put ISO on both their flagships before they start adding more.
19. izim1 (Posts: 446; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
Oh snap! According to iphonearena Apple is about to invent the dual camera! I can't wait to read that article!
26. Macready (Posts: 863; Member since: 08 Dec 2014)
Without RAW, it can never be taken "pro" seriously.
And don't give me the "RAW is useless for phones" nonsense. I know better from experience, rather than guessing.
29. AlikMalix (Posts: 5238; Member since: 16 Jul 2014)
What are you going to do with the RAW files?
38. AlikMalix (Posts: 5238; Member since: 16 Jul 2014)
I know what they're for, I'm just curious what post processing you need to do to a photo captured by a cellphone. And how's all that post processing really different from all the filters and apps like pixelmator or Lightroom? I'm not arguing - I'm really curious.
42. ibend (Posts: 3862; Member since: 30 Sep 2014)
various post processing just like RAW capture from someone's camera...
the answer is limitless..
imagine RAW file as RAW meat.. and Lighroom as microwave.. U can cook various food out of that meat, and if u use stove (other app), u can cook even more various stuff from that meat

So excited for the next big thing of Apple. Even if they have the issue on FBI they still manage to stand up.
31. bossman (Posts: 56; Member since: 27 Jan 2016)
The dual camera being game changing is debatable. The only game changing dual camera is the LG G5's camera. The chance of it being game changing is low based upon their other ideas like 3d touch.
If the iPhone 7 has wide-angle camera the like the G5, it'll be game changing for LG.
33. catze86 (Posts: 692; Member since: 07 Dec 2015)
I dont know about this year. Previous dual camera phones are fail
32. Chuck007 (Posts: 1054; Member since: 02 Mar 2014)
..and how much will this cost? As much as a 13" MacBook Pro Retina?
39. AlikMalix (Posts: 5238; Member since: 16 Jul 2014)
You guys keep making these insinuations that iPhones will cost more if they add features, yet year over year it's the same price.
45. Chuck007 (Posts: 1054; Member since: 02 Mar 2014)
Same price of what? The dual camera is set to appear on a "Pro" model.
51. AlikMalix (Posts: 5238; Member since: 16 Jul 2014)
All rumors and speculations. Maybe the next iPhone will transform into a car at s push of a button and it will cost $300. All I'm saying is your post is irrelevant at this point since we're still speculating on features but you're already trolling that it will cost as much as a laptop. iPhones in history always cost the same as the one before that. The only difference is the storage tiers.
41. mixedfish (Posts: 1154; Member since: 17 Nov 2013)
"Pro" is such an abused term, what's so Pro about a these phones, not just Apple?
It's like "GT" you find on car names, plastered over 4 door sedans or family SUVs. Pure marketing BS right here.
50. SIGPRO (Posts: 1385; Member since: 03 Oct 2012)
And the price will be pro high!
We will see, still they can't beat Nokia/MS Pureview Phones!
