LG's new flagship G6 smartphone looks great with its huge screen and tiny bezel, but it's the camera that excites me most. Like the G5 before it, it has two camera lenses, one of which gives an ultrawide angle of view.
I took the phone around Barcelona, Spain, to see how its camera fares in a variety of scenes and really enjoyed capturing dramatic shots using the wide-angle mode.
I haven't spent a lot of time with the phone so far, so stay tuned for the full review in which we'll give our final verdict on the camera. Click through now though to see some great example photos taken with the G6.
This first shot, taken on the hills around the city has accurate colours, with a rich blue sky. The phone has exposed the sky well, and still kept in lots of detail in the shadowy palm trees in the foreground.
The extremely bright sky right behind the palace makes this shot incredibly difficult for a camera to capture. The G6 has done a decent job by using the auto HDR mode, but even so, the building front is still in a lot of shadow.
I headed inside the iconic Sagrada Familia to see how the phone manages in low light. In short, it's not great. While the wide-angle lens has helped me capture the dramatic architecture of the building, there's a huge amount of image noise, which spoils the overall look.
