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 colours on the fruit on this stall are bold and vibrant, even in the lower light inside the market.
A great effort at a landscape shot, capturing Barcelona's Montjuic Tower.
With the wide-angle view enabled, the phone is able to capture a huge amount more.
The wide-angle lens has helped me get the rich blue sky, the flowerbeds and the palace towers in this one shot.
The camera can focus up close as well, achieving a sharp focus on this bee and the flower. Colours are spot on and the exposure is ideal.
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.
The 5-megapixel front-facing camera has a wide-angle view too, which helped get me, and my beautiful surroundings, in this shot.
Beautiful, bold colours and great exposure. No complaints about this shot.
The HDR mode has helped lift the shadows of the palm tree in the foreground, while also keeping the bright sky from being overexposed.
With the wide view enabled, the G6 captured a dramatic shot from the window of my taxi.
More outdoor shots.
Even with a strong strong sky in the background, the G6 has kept the bright sky under control and kept the graffiti on this structure looking vibrant and bright.
