The G6 has two rear cameras and a front-facing shooter with a wide-angle lens. Check out how well all these cameras can take pictures.

The G6, which features two 13-megapixel rear cameras and a front-facing 5-megapixel shooter, has a few tricks up its sleeves. Check out the gallery to see how well it can take photos. All the pictures have been taken at their full resolution with HDR off, and were not edited or cropped in any way.

For more outdoor shots, check out our other G6 gallery here.

Like previous LG phones, the G6 has a wide-angle lens. Here is a scene taken with the standard lens...

Photos taken in dark settings with the front-facing shooter also turn out muddy.

In this photo, the white balance is accurate and skin tones look natural.

I like the white balance in this shot, as seen with the true-to-life white curtain on the left.

The G6 handled the dramatic lighting on this orchid flower well.
