Here's how images from the 135-degree main camera of the LG G5 compare

The zoom option is a very great thing to have.

Speaking like other smartphones cant zoom this much just as easy , what is this 2x , 3x ?

mmm, the zoom is like one camera but in fact is changing between them if you want to see more.

I actualy tought 2 cameras would mean better picture quality or something , but turns out its just marketing move for stupid people.

Stupid are the ones who call others stupid just because they bought a phone with a unique feature.

Also it really depends on the person taking the photo, the cup one looks better the wide angle.

Mmm, the heavy barrel distortion on the wide angle ruins it for me. Otherwise would have loved to have it.

Yeah, that's they do call such wide angle lenses with this type of distortion, often intentional, "fish-eye" lenses.

That's on all wide angle lenses. Nothing unique to the G5. Also it can be little bit corrected in photoshop etc to look more normal to our perception.

I would love to see some 1080p action videos with the LG!! That would be amazing. Money goes to the s7 tho, much better all round.

Look at that distortion. Thanks but no thanks.

clip-on fish lens + 16MP main camera may give better result than this secondary camera :-/

If I asked somebody before what feature they want in a new phone and they said a wide angle camera I would have laughed.
Oddly enough that's what I did when watching LG's presentation, where did they do their market research? are they picking random features out of a hat? Why? :D

Looks cool. I'll wait for deep down camera tests and comparisons, but I just came back from a week skiing in the mountains and I think most of the pictures I took would have looked better on a 135° camera.

I know LG said the camera software isn't final. Thank goodness, as those pics are not very good. I do like the features of the G5. Samsung did a great job with the S7 by refining the S6, with the larger battery and expandable storage. But I'm a little more excited by the G5 than I am with Samsung's offering this year.
