The great selfie camera comparison: Galaxy S8+ vs LG G6 vs iPhone 7 vs Google Pixel

People still do selfies, right? I imagine they do, seeing as manufacturers insist on including a selfie camera in pretty much every smartphone nowadays. So I decided to put four of the biggest devices out there, the Samsung Galaxy S8+, LG G6, Apple iPhone 7, and Google Pixel, to the test...

TBH the comparison isn't fair. The selfies were taken from different angle in few phones which tends to change the white balance of the pics, which results in huge differences. But then there's no overlooking to the fact that iPhone has a predominantly yellowish hue to the pics which depends on the personal preference of a person whether he likes warmer pics or not.

Not to mention - my first comment since I've joined PA (5-May-2012). Better late than never they say!

There's a reason why the author of this article wears glasses... No offense intended! The Pixel and the S8 had the best photos. The iPhone is horrible, as usual. The G6 is a tad better. But what to expect from iPhoneArena?

So yeah, how is this in any way a real legitimate review? all the shots are different with different lighting and shadows? how can there be any objectivity like this?

The funny thing is that even though Xperias lag recently regarding its main camera, the selfie found in the XZ, XZs and upcoming XZ Premium is better than the ones posted here..

It's just preference I guess.
