The LG G4's camera has been given a boost over its predecessor, including a higher resolution, a brighter f/1.8 aperture, raw image shooting and manual controls. I headed out to the streets of Paris to see what it can do.

This first shot is my favourite. I slowed the shutter speed right down and used a neural density filter simply held over the lens to capture car light trails and smooth waves on the river.

I shot in raw mode and was able to process the image in Adobe Lightroom afterwards.

On the left is the unprocessed JPEG of this long exposure of the Eiffel Tower. On the right is the raw file, which I have been able to significantly lighten in Lightroom, thanks to the extra detail the raw image saves.

The G4 shoots very well in daylight too. Here, I used the HDR mode to achieve an even exposure.

HDR mode was necessary here as well to balance the bright sky and shadows of the people sat enjoying the view.

This classic Fiat 500 is exposed well, but it has quite warm, unnatural colours, which weren't present on the S6 Edge or iPhone 6.

Shooting a tricky subject in daylight, without HDR.

This time, with HDR turned on. All three phones performed well, although the iPhone 6 had the most satisfying contrast on the graffiti.

When holding the phone in your hand in low-light, instead of using a tripod, the camera will turn up the ISO speed to achieve a bright image. At full screen on a monitor, there's a lot of image noise visible.

The G4 achieved a bright and accurate shot of this building at night.

A lovely cafe, and not a bad shot.
