First camera samples from the LG G4

One of the areas in which the LG G4 bears improvement over the LG G3 is the camera department. The new device has a larger OIS-enabled camera with dual LED flash that shoots 16MP images, as well as camera lens with an aperture of f/1.8. The latter is a pretty solid prerequisite for good low-light camera performance, as more light hitting the sensor usually results in much better shots in low-lit environment.

It will be pretty interesting to put the new LG handset against the notable competition, consisting of the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 edge, the Note 4, the Apple iPhone 6/6 Plus, the One M9, as well as the G3, and see whether LG has upped its game in this important area. You'll have to wait for our full-blown camera comparison, but we won't leave you with nothing!

We had the chance to tinker with the LG G4 for a while, and of course, we snapped we handful of camera samples with one of the units. You can check them out right below.

Bright colors look kinda oversaturated to me - especially the yellow "sunbrellas" at the end look pretty bright to me :/

Not bad, not bad..... Dynamic range is not so good and if this is in auto... LG still prefers low shutter speed in low light to let in more light and leans back on OIS for security... Well... Not a fan of that. But since there is full manual now, that problem doesn't matter any more. Not a fan of the color reproduction either... Also, who ever took these photos need to be shot with a howitzer... Can't hold the damn phone still and tap to focus at the same time? F@ck wrong with ya???

I think level to detail capturing is compromised with Spectrum Color. That's why colors are really brilliant.
