I think he means using third party software to take the photos. But it my experiencie it doesn't help too much since all the software use the same "limit/native values" or whatever u call them (aperture and shutter speed settings and so on) when taking a photo. So that means that, unless the "stock camera software" makes and awful work when choosing what paremeters to use, you won't notice big differences between obtained results.

This was taken at the same place, using the same settings, same light, etc. See for yourself:

OEM means "stock", like the one in the stock rom provided by LG.

The "LG Camera" is another software, found in the Play Store:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...lgCamera&hl=en

I don't know how come they called it "LGCamera", beats me! But it's not the camera software from LG!

Well I don't see where you wanna get. Actually I dont know which one do u like the most. I just see a more natural color but a much more noisy shot than with the second one.

Where I want to go is that you can get those 2 results with both app cameras, playing around with manual settings. The problem is that 90% of people don't use them and just press the butom and take the photo.

So what makes the difference when choosing one app instead the other is actually depending only on how the automatic mode works..

In part, I know I can get a better quality on the OEM software using custom ISO settings, but the image will get blurry easely, which is not realy an option unless you take "still subjects".

The grainy feel on the first one is realy beyond what I could consider an "average" quality.

Good point.

On the other hand, hardware is supposed to be worse, and actually less energy consumer -2 cores against 4. So I doubt about Xperia sp performing worse than optimus g in that field.
I was torn between buying SP, nexus 4 and LGOG. SP has larger battery capacity and external storage, nexus 4 has direct update from google. But i ended up buying LGOG cos it has better hardware, nicer screen than SP, and larger storage than Nexus 4. I bought my sister the SP though, and she loves it!
