iPhone 8 Plus vs LG G6 camera test | Last Cam Standing VII


in recent years the cameras on Apple’s
iPhones have been beaten down by far superior Android phone cameras but now
we have the iPhone 8 plus and it’s here to take on our current smartphone camera
pick the LG G 6 no matter what phone you own you’ll definitely want to stick
around for this fight let’s quickly go over some specs before we get to the
test results the iPhone 8 plus features a dual lens setup one normal lens and
one telephoto Apple has improved the internals with new sensors new lens
color filters and a proprietary image signal processor or ISP the LG G 6 also
has a dual lens camera system but it’s a normal lens paired with a super wide
lens the hardware inside is mostly off-the-shelf but where LG really shines
is in its post processing and feature-rich camera app for this camera
showdown I’m going to focus mostly on the results from the main cameras for
both phones and I’ll use them the way most people do straight out of the
pocket with the stock camera app and HD are set to auto our testing results are
broken into four sections color clarity exposure and user experience and for
this shootout we hired the beautiful model valaria to help us with real-world
testing now on to the results the first category is color and I’m looking for
accurate color balance along with the reproduction of natural skin tones and I
have to be honest I’ve never seen a smartphone deliver such true-to-life
colors like the iPhone 8 plus does like I mentioned earlier Apple added a new
filter to the lenses that helped with this accuracy but I imagine most of
their strength comes from their ISP in past shootouts I’ve dinged Apple heavily
in the color category but they’re now back with a vengeance and the g6 just
can’t keep up no matter what lighting scenario I threw at it the 8 plus
performed more like a DSLR than a smartphone this category was a blowout
and easily goes to the iPhone 8 plus next we’ll go over clarity and these
results are a bit more nuanced here I’m looking at the sharpness of each image
and how each camera decides to maintain a clear photo across multiple lighting
scenarios in brightly lit scenes both phones hold their own the g6 has a
slight edge in white shots as you can here in the distance the g6 was also
sharper in most close range and macro situations as well but at normal
shooting distances the iPhone 8 plus was noticeably better and these are the
distances of regular people use the most so it makes sense that this is where the
iPhone has its sweet spot check out some low-light scenes and it’s more of a toss
up you can see slightly more sharpening and post on the iPhone but not enough to
tip the scales it really came down to autofocus in these situations and that’s
where the iPhone had a clear advantage the g6 is no slouch but the 8 plus was
just plain faster and more accurate which is super important so with that
said I’m gonna have to give the clarity category to the iPhone 8 plus next up we
have exposure and here I’m going over the dynamic range capabilities of each
phone and how they chose to expose for the scene will bring up the histogram
for these shots and here’s the basic way to read one the right side of the graph
represents the bright areas of the image and the left side represents the dark
areas you go too far in either direction and the exposure Clips meaning you lose
valuable information this category is a tight race and both phones handle
themselves well in almost every lighting scenario the g6 has a flatter image
which allows for more editing in post but appears as more of a washed out
photo the problem I’ve had with a lot of phones including iPhones is that an
image with more contrast looks punchy right off the bat but it’s a decision
that limits you later on in other words if the exposure gets messed up you won’t
have as much flexibility to correct an editing that said almost all of the
decisions with exposure and contrast on the iPhone 8 plus were what I would have
done anyway these images are punchy and accurate the
g6 is accurate as well and allows for more flexibility in post so at this
point it comes down to personal preference would you like a photo that
looks great with no editing or flatter image that gives you more flexibility to
edit the way you want I have to call this category of time the last category
is user experience because even if the camera is amazing it’s not worth using
if the experience is horrible the g6 has advantages like being able to launch the
camera with a quick button press and there’s a robust manual mode
there are also more interesting features to play with on the g6
like pop-out which uses both cameras to stitch together a unique photo the
iPhone on the other hand is snappy straightforward and easy to use
autofocus performance is also speedier on the iPhone
especially in low-light the biggest difference between using both phones is
their second cameras the iPhone uses a telephoto lens that gives you an
effective two time zoom which is good for capturing far-off subjects but
apples portrait mode offered even more value from the telephoto lens it uses a
tool on system to gather depth information and introduces blur into the
scene providing stunning results on the LG side we have the second lens with a
super wide field of view allowing more of a scene to fit into the shot as
awesome as portrait mode is especially when shooting with a model I just found
myself having way more of a need for the super wide lens during day to day use
these features really boil down to personal preference though I’m only
going to give the slight edge to the LG G 6 in this category mainly on the
strength of its camera app features you could just simply do more with LG’s
camera from its manual mode to pop out to raw photo support there is plenty to
have fun with well after four categories we have a clear winner Apple’s iPhone 8
plus the LG G 6 took down some awesome phones this year and it’s been great but
after a couple years of lackluster results Apple has finally stepped up to
the plate and created a truly stunning camera system photo shot with the iPhone
8 plus have the most accurate colors I’ve seen in a smartphone camera the
accuracy approaches DSLR levels even in low-light
I believe the strength of this new system lies within the new ISP and if
this phone is any indication we should see even better results coming from
Apple’s upcoming iPhone 10 are you impressed with the new iPhone or are you

    Not a good comparison. LG G6 is a $500 phone. LG V30 would wipe the iPhone 8+ and the X's butt. Plus Android doesn't make software updates that purposefully outdate hardware so you have to buy phones every 1.5 years. Unless, of course you can deal with a buggy, shitty software experience like iOS 11 behaves on my iPhone 7 and iPhone SE. I just switched over to Android. The ONLY thing I miss is iMessage.

    The LG G6 is good but I still prefer the G5. In the camera department, the only improvement from G5 to G6 is the super wide angle camera.

    Disagree big time. Looks like some were better on LG and some better in Apple. It seemed like a matter of where you were focused. Apple seems to overexpose much much more. As a whole I'll take LG cuz its just a better all around package on the main shooter. In the selfie 📷 I'm sure apple wins that but that's not important to me.
    P. S. The wide angle far outshines the telephoto lens. Compare any bokeh side to side and LG does a better job with background blur.

    G6 is the best phone for a budget of less than 500 USD or 700 aud. Inr is 35000 rs, and has a headphone Jack. IPhone is overpriced, and over hyped. The only advantage with IPhone is its brand value and after sales service where LG, one plus and every brand except Samsung and apple sucks. If Samsung gets me a wide angle lens and prices it around 900 USD, I will definitely buy it. But again Note 8 is 100 dollars overpriced.

    I am an LG G5 owner and I think you gave one of the best camera reviews I have seen on the net. It was fair, and although my LG fanboy status wanted the LG G6 to win.. I think you were very fair and all I can say is for those who are into post-editing the LG G5 or LG G6 will give you a great camera to work with at probably a better price. Anyhow a fantastic review. Fair, unbiased.. great job

    I always found my LG G6 over-sharpened images. Also, it often hesitated in taking a photo once I pressed the shutter- especially in mid-to-low light. The selfie cam had TERRIBLE dynamic range and was often inexplicably soft. The most distressing thing was how easy it is to scratch the glass over the G6 cameras(!).
