New LG video showcases five great tips and insights into the beastly G4 camera
The LG G4 is the latest in a deluge of new arrivals in the Android space. HTC kicked things off early on with the solid One M9, before Samsung launched the decidedly more impressive Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. With the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus having broken all manner of records since arriving in September, LG knew it had its work cut out in trying to grab a piece of the pie. But as you'll have seen if you've caught any of our reviews, it's hard to say a bad word about the G4, and both the front and rear-facing cameras are particular highlights. Thus, LG has once again drafted in photographer Colby Brown to present five great features of the G4's cameras.

With the HTC One series having caught the eye for its unibody design and Samsung always churning out flagship devices with good cameras and even better displays, LG has cut a rather isolated figure in the battle of the top-end 'Droids over the years. The G4, however, does throw down the gauntlet to its adversaries, and along with the rear-facing, 16-megapixel shooter, LG has also treated selfie fans to an 8-megapixel front snapper. 

Colby Brown, the photographer who presented some of the G4's camera features prior to its launch, is back with a few more now that the official unveiling has taken place. The clip, which has been posted up on the official LG Mobile Global YouTube page, talks about the f/1.8 lens, and how it's the brightest of any smartphone on the market. The fact that the lens sucks in more light means that you're less likely to be using the flash, which, in turn, means you'll get brighter, more natural-looking shots even in low-light conditions. 

Brown goes on to demonstrate manual mode, before discussing how the in-built color spectrum sensor can adjust to particular environments and gather details that other, competing smartphone cameras may struggle to achieve. There's also a taster of the new OIS 2.0 (optical image stabilization), which keeps your videos flowing smoothly even though conditions may always be changing. 

Finally, the 8-megapixel camera at the front is briefly discussed, and at a time when folk seemingly take more selfies than ordinary shots, LG G4 users' facial blemishes will show up in all their glory. 

Take a look, and let us know if the LG G4 is on your radar by dropping a comment below.

P.A.should update your review on G4's battery seems you are the only one put the battery score at the very lower position compared to competitors. re- test g4's battery on the same level of setting you did on s6 at 180nits Brightness to gets the fair score. i hope you listen

I owned G4 and believe me the maker of some videos on youtube making bad image of G4 Camera is a liar. the OIS 2.0 on G4 is really great and not shaking as that person trying to show you he did not turn ON the OIS on G4 when he do the comparison i know it and know him. He is a Samsung lover.

Not every site states.Some give the edge to the Galaxy s6 and some to the G4.It is how PA reviews the device,for them it doesn't holds the first position.

but PA also admitted they run the battery tests on the galaxy s6 at 180nits and the G4 at 200nits which is not fair though. other than that PA changed their score for G4 which was originally 9.2 and finally the G4 does support qualcomm quick wireless charging 2.0 which is soppousdley

also PA changed their score for G4 which was originally 9.2 and finally the G4 does support qualcomm quick wireless charging 2.0 which is supposedly a con when they did the review so they must re change the score too. all the reviewers believe g4 's battery does better than g3 's battery ONLY P.A. claiming the G3's battery is still better than on the G4 very biased indeed.
