LG G4 Photography

In Korea, the LG G4 has been on the market since April of this year. Given that there are at least 3 mobile stores on every block (T-World, anyone?), we were continually surrounded by the hype of this phone. Kevin had the LG G2 so this was naturally his next upgrade, and he always wanted to stop and check out the phone displays. The sleek curve of the phone and the soft leather back caught my eye. Seeing a camera demo made me think more. Manual settings on a phone camera? An aperture of f/1.8 for low light settings? Sounds amazing. After a lot (a lot!) of research, I decided to make a big switch from iOS to Android.

I had been intrigued by Android for awhile, having seen what Kevin was able to do with his phone the last couple years, but it’s the camera that really won me over on this phone. Here are the more detailed specs from the LG website:

To save a little bit of money, I ordered an unlocked international version on eBay. It was a couple hundred bucks cheaper than buying the phone directly from AT&T, and I was able to get it with my desired red leather back.

It’s big, but it doesn’t feel too big in my hands. In fact, I’d go so far as to say my iPhone 5 is just too small!

Testing out some low-light shots. This was taken in a dark room where the only light was a low-wattage lamp 20 feet away and the television screen. I was able to get the whole scene a lot brighter in a manual shot but it was pretty grainy. I don’t necessarily think this is the best low-light subject, but I was never out when the sun was setting to capture any sort of outdoor night shot, which also proves impossible right outside the house given the secluded forest-like setting.

Delicious Panera cookies and awesome detail on those M&M’s.

A beautiful day for golf – or, eating lunch overlooking the golf course.

The camera on this phone blows my iPhone 5 camera out of the water. Obviously, the iPhone’s camera has improved with its recent models and is a top contender, but I’m so happy with this one. Being able to adjust certain settings and shoot in RAW is fabulous when it comes time to do some editing. I’ll have to take some dSLR comparison shots. I did it today for the picture right above and the LG G4 photo turned out much more vibrant than that of my dSLR. However, to offer a true comparison, I should have put my dSLR on automatic to compare the auto settings of both.

Stay tuned for more LG G4 photos!
