These days, the most important part of a smartphone is the camera. DxOMark is a website that reviews cameras, as well as the cameras on these smartphones. You may remember during Motorola’s press conference in July, they mentioned that they gave the site the Moto X Style ahead of release and they were quite impressed with the camera. It was given a score of 83, which ranked it with the Galaxy Note 4 and now the LG G4. That’s ahead of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus (the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus aren’t tested yet), which had a score of 82, but behind the Galaxy S6 Edge which has a score of 86. Now we all knew that the LG G4 had an amazing camera, but we didn’t expect it to get the same score as the Moto X Style.
Now it’s important to remember before you click that source link below and check out DxOMark’s review, that these are professional photographers. So their pictures from the LG G4 are likely to look a whole lot better than anything you’ll be able to get out of your LG G4.
The test has two parts, which are photos and videos. With photos, DxOMark praised the LG G4 for the autofocus which is pretty consistent likely due to the laser on the back. As well as the exposure and noise reduction. However, they weren’t too impressed with a few over-exposed shots and artifacts which are pretty rate. Photos wise, it scores a 86. On the video side the LG G4 doesn’t do as well, with a 79 score. This is based on good noise reduction and exposure. However the colors and auto-focus are a bit poor, in DxOMark’s opinion. The Galaxy S6 Edge score a 88 and a 84 respectively in these two categories. So LG is pretty close to Samsung, but not quite enough to take the crown away from Samsung.
For those of you wondering just how good the LG G4’s camera really is, you’ll want to check out DxOMark’s review. But it is a pretty decent camera on the LG G4, especially in low-light. While other cameras add a lot of noise in low-light and at night, the LG G4 does a good job at leaving it out.
