LG used its G Pro 2 to photograph the northern lights, here are the results

To show us what the G Pro 2’s camera can do, LG organized a trip to Canada, more exactly to Yellowknife - a city famous for offering fantastic views of the northern lights (also known as aurora borealis). LG carried a handful of G Pro 2 smartphones to the Northwest Territories, and used them to photograph the northern lights. You can see the results in the slideshow below.
While we can’t help wondering how Nokia’s Lumia 1020 and its PureView technology would fare in these conditions, we admit that the G Pro 2’s camera did a pretty awesome job. We should add, though, that the photos were shot using tripods - as you'll notice in this video (in Korean):
LG will have the G Pro 2 on display at MWC 2014 next week, and we’re looking forward to checking it out. The new smartphone, which runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box, will be launched in South Korea tomorrow, February 21, with an international roll out to follow starting March.

Though the G PRo 2 maybe good. I'll not buy any LG devices cause my G Pro is still stuck at 4.1.2 they have the worst Update Support and with Locked Bootloaders.

It's hard enough to stand in that cold, let alone holding a phone at a certain angle for long time.. Btw why are you so negative in your thinking... do you use wp by any chance?

+1. If it were me, and I was spending $ to go to Yellowknife to take pics of the aurora borealis, I would be packing along something like a Canon PowerShot G16 or Sony RX100. Nothing against the LG, it is just not competitive with dedicated cameras like the Canon or Sony.
