It is our duty to put the LG G3's camera to the test – to see how well it performs against other popular high-end models. And for this camera comparison, we've lined up the usual suspects: the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Note 3, the iPhone 5s, the LG G2, the Sony Xperia Z2, and the HTC One (M8)...

Neither do I know anybody. I take them sometimes (like once/twice a year). They are definitely nice in mountain ranges and such places, but isn't used really that much.

I'm with you. Every single phone is capable Of taking good photos in daylight. Its the lowlight condition which is challenging. PA don't understand that. In daylight their software don't need much rendering its in the lowlight when they have to capture more light n try to produce decent photos.
Just do a damn lowlight photos comparison PA.

I'm glad someone else said it but PA ignoring the true camera is just lazy. The article even opens up with mentioning they are nerds. Pretty sure a nerd knows about Pure view...

that's not superior auto. superior auto has a 16:9 aspect ratio and uses pixel binning to come up with sharper shots.

don't make it appear that they're doing the z2 a favor because they're not. it's even a clear disfavor.

The Lumia's are not included because they have great cameras but no one uses them .
So they avoided unpopular phone brands . If you don't believe me you can check the market share .
And second most interesting thing is that in some comparison S5 gets 8 in other it gets 8.5 and Z2 get 8.2 and in some 7.8 .
Why the result of the same test defer so much in every comparison by the some phones ?

That is your opinion. This is a smartphone camera comparison, not a sales or market share/popularity comparison.

crazy that in only 1 shot, the clock tower, is where the K outdid the 1020, in all other shots, especially the dark no flash shot, the 1020 came out the victor in my eyes. Or at least on par without having a physical adjustable lens.

Considering the Note 3 will be turning almost a year old already, it still stays one of the top.
