LG G4: see the new camera and its features here

Well, folks, the LG G4 is finally official, in all its leathery (or ceramic-finished plasticky) glory. The new flagship rocks a few unique features and upgrades – from the aforementioned leather-clad back, to the slightly arched body, the 64-bit hexacore Snapdragon 808, an updated user interface, which LG says is more intuitive than before, and a number of camera improvements for the shutterbugs out there.

Indeed, LG made strides in the snapper department, improving the camera's aperture – at F1.8, it currently has the widest aperture among phone cameras, followed by the Galaxy S6's F1.9 – bumping the main sensor's resolution to 16 MP from 13 MP, and significantly upgrading the selfie snapper to an 8 MP one. Aditionally, the laser autofocus from the G3 was upgraded to a color spectrum sensor, which should give us even better results, and the whole camera app was overhauled, making many more setting accessible to the user.

Of course, LG is more than happy to talk to us about the new features and functions of the G4's cameras. Let's check them out now!

I like G4 camera over the S6.. I am tired of carrying a G2 and a L930 and will soon buy the G4 if it can take photos as good as my L930

You can't put DSLR in your pocket!!! I think LG G4 might be the best camera phone for 2015.

LG G4 has the better camera and they left alone to laser auto focus, but took out one of the flashes to implent the sensor.

For features like Long exposure and low light they should put Nokia's 930, 1020 or 925 :P
