Default Camera gets choppy in lower light

Is this normal? It goes down to maybe 15FPS whether recording video or taking a picture, and that's reflected in the playback of videos so it's not just a preview thing. Then when I focus on something relatively bright like my computer screen, it goes back up to 60/30FPS.

Camera mods don't seem to fix anything.

Disable thermal throttling in the hidden menu will solve the camera lag issue

I don't see how this is a thermal issue. The reason why the framerate drops is because LG over-utilizes the optical image stabilization, and sets the shutter speed too low, meaning it takes forever to snap one picture and each frame of video takes forever, so the fps drops and everything smears and blurs in indoor and low light. The flip side is the image will be bright with less noise, IF you are a human tripod and nothing in your scene moves, which is not true 99% of the time. I just use my iPad to take indoor shots now around the house. It's instant, and it has noise, but no more smearing and weird glowing light and light trails. LG still hasn't fixed this issue with their first OIS device. Setting ISO to something high just makes the image dark as hell, since it seems to turn off the OIS completely and the shutter speed can't be changed.

Okay, but try disabling thermal throttling. It does help.
