Camera Comparison: LG G2 vs Samsung Galaxy S4, iPhone 5, HTC One
Close-ups and HDR
Most users don't take close-ups and HDR photos very often, but having a camera that excels in these two departments is definitely an advantage. After all, the details in macros are a pleasure to admire, while HDR can come in handy when the lighting conditions are tricky.
When it comes to taking macro and close-up shots, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the camera to have. Its camera can capture a bit more detail than the rest, which is why we have picked it as our favorite. The photos from the iPhone 5 and the LG G2 are a bit less detailed in this case, but good nonetheless. The HTC One, on the other hand, captures macros and close-ups of average quality. They are okay, but nothing special.
The iPhone 5 surprised us with its nice HDR shots, capturing all the areas of the frame in great clarity. The LG G2's HDR photos look fine, but the sky is still overexposed. The same scene captured with the Galaxy S4 in Rich Tone mode ended up looking hazy while the HTC One sacrificed quite a bit of detail to capture the same frame in HDR.
