LG G3 vs Galaxy S5 Note 3 One M8 iPhone 5s 2

One of the features that got our blue undies in a bunch during yesterday’s newly announced LG G3 was the smartphone’s improved camera features. Really, there’s 2 main camera features that should help the phone outperform some of its rivals (on paper anyway): the laser auto focus sensor, and enhanced OIS+.

Together, you’d expect some pretty snazzy snapshots, especially in low light where things can get muddy. But often times a camera is only as good as its sensor and the software behind it. Luckily, the boys at PhoneArena were able to snap a few comparison shots, pitting the LG G3 against the current crop of rival flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and Apple iPhone 5s.

We don’t want to spoil anything, but the results — which seem to have been shot in a dimly lit area — seem to favor the LG G3 in our unbiased opinion. The worst offender? Without a doubt the Samsung Galaxy S5 which, we mentioned in a previous article falls on its face in average lighting conditions (but looks great in daylight). Like most things, we’ll let you decide for yourself.

Of course, these results aren’t conclusive and we look forward to the chance to test out the LG G3 camera for ourselves.

Don’t forget to let us know which smartphone camera (which is only 1 component of what makes a phone great) you think came out on top.
