LG V10: first camera samples

LG V10: first camera samples
The LG V10 is an interesting new smartphone from LG, and since the G4 continues to delight us with its camera performance to this day, we can't help but expect great things from the camera of the V10 as well.

Well, how fortunate then that we managed to snap a few quick photos with the V10, right under the nose of the unsuspecting LG representatives at the phone's unveiling!

Feel free to browse through the following gallery and feast your eyes on what are probably the first LG V10 camera samples in the wild, but don't forget that we might be dealing with an unfinished version of the device here, so results may be different once it hits the market, sometime in the unknown future.

We've captured video footage too during LG's event, showing off its manual video controls that can be adjusted on the fly. It's also noteworthy to point out that this is captured using its 24p 'cinematic' mode. So what do you think?

camera on v10 gives natural color, not like kicked, faded colors on galaxy s6

Kicked and faded don''t belong in the same sentence. S6 shots are anything but faded. They are more saturated than the v10, if anything. IMO, it's a choice. I like the saturated colors over the more natural, toned down colors of LG. And either way, adjusting saturation is super easy and can be done in even the simplest of editors.

As you said its can be adjusted in any editors. Still to have the real colors instead of false one is a better start.

It's not. I prefer saturated colours over muted ones.people love popping colors. That's why all tvs are oversaturated. Thats why even the screen of lg phones are oversaturated. Regarding true or false, you can't capture true colours on sRGB gamut anyway. So g4 can't capture true colours as our eyes can see way more colors than the phone captures. So please don't bring the argument of true colours, as both of them are far from true colours.

these are real life photos? Very nice, but not looking amazing like professionals taken Nexus p6 shots. I am totally confused now to purchase either V10 or Nexus 6p? V10 has an advantage of removable battery and sd card. p6 is better looking with less mega pixel camera(I consider it an advantage) and finger scanner.

V10 also has a fingerprint scanner

thats cool. So another point in V10's pocket. Those dots on the back cover, are rubber or hard plastic? if rubber then p6 is going to be a history. I will be buying V10 then. But at the moment I am very confused between V10 and p6. Confusion might be cleared if I will see both in hand.

well, p6 is better build, v10 has sd card and some interesting extra screen on top, if looking for powerhouse v10, if powerhouse/style its p6, thats what i think, plus v10 will be bigger i believe :) i could not wait went for samsung s6 edge :D

V10 and P6 same size, V10 has durable stainless steel body with soft plastic on the back which absorbs impacts as well and feels nice.

Are you kidding. rough textured plastic is not nice at all. cold metal looks and feels awesome in hand. A phone with soft plastic?? if anything its always hard plastic and its not like metal will bend more or anything on impact compared to plastic. you make no sense.

Soft, rubberized plastic does, in fact, feel better than metal. And it sounds like he's saying it's a soft coating over stainless. If so, then no to the bending more.

You have no idea of what your talking about. The back isn't "soft plastic" It's a silicon rubber that is much more durable and better grip. It just amazing to me how stupid people on this are all of the sudden "experts" after reading a couple of paragraphs of an article on a new phone!

We still need to wait for real comparison to judge. but i agree the nexus 6P did looked better.

I think everyone has failed to mention the most obvious of things. Your V10 is almost never getting a proper update. The best part of a Nexus is fast and timely updates, waiting for LG to do it, is like waiting for HTC to make a phone that matters (sorry I had to do it).

Yeah same. If you zoom in on the images, particularly the sandwich images, thy are out of focus. :(

It has the exact same camera as the G4. I don't see any surprise because guess what, it's the same.

I am sad that why LG didnt put 12.30mp camera? they could use it with 3axis OIS. But why they didnt? although nexus 5x has given them a lot of experience. 16mp gives huge jpeg file size, I hate that OR scaling down reduced the quality of the image.

Funny no one says that the score in very important categories is much lover than samsung galaxy S6 while in few not so important areas its much higher making the overall score better.

Care to give number instead of just saying empty crap? i checked both scoore and they about the same in many aspect.

37. DoggyDangerous

you can check directly on dxomark.com he is right. S6 has better score in some important areas. 23mp is ridiculasly large mega pixel count. Which will make huge image files. Through experience, I have seen that huge file size is useless in practicality. File size should not be bigger than 3mb to 4mb. This is the reason I am admiring Google for choosing 12.30mp camera in x5 and p6.

It has exact same camera as LG G4 so I see no point of this article. But hey clickbait works well

I just don't like lg's UI but everything else is perfect in this phone

So my first question is: Is that really the best subject matter you could find to shoot? I was really hoping to hold out for the SD820 but since my Samsung Galaxy S3 is acting up (2012) Phone I need to get something sooner rather than later. I had high hopes for the Note 5 but they screwed the pooch there. So my choice is a V10 which is a valid option or the Sony Z5. The Z5 has the 23mp camera and it looks sexy but.. If my top priority is Battery the Lg Wins Big! Sony has the better Camera (mp) Screen resolution (novelty) it looks Slick and it its a bigger batter(Not Consumer Replaceable) The V10 has more Ram more Storage but a 6 core cpu versus Z5 8 core. Why can't every one put a IR Blaster on the phone(FFS) I will pay the extra 20 bucks the parts cost! Is the SD810 going to make up for the 3 gig of ram on the Z5?

23mp is rediculously big. It will make each photo, more than 10mb file size. I hate that. Sony should implement Nokia's pureview like super pixel oversampling to this 23mp camera. With super pixel sampling, the resolution will come to 5mp without the lose of any quality.
