i am very happy with the camera , the speed is a little slower than some, ( on first shot ) but when a moment is taken to frame shot and improve lighting or adjust iso in manual settings , the camera takes excellent pics . i use both wide angle sensor and regular , and cant say ive owned a better phone camera . I have installed Google Camera HDR+ (V4.0) ported for lg g6 , ripped from pixel , it offers some inhanced HDR , but is slower and images a little undersized , when compared to oem app . But the hdr really adds flair to the dogs hair . Native Video is very good as well . 4k fiiles are huge . Using Google Camera HDR+ (V4.0) the camera will only do 1080p but that video is nice as well. Having used this phone for almost a year i can say its nearly my fav. very few limitations really botehr me. Only my friends S8 compares in quality video and stills , but i paid 120 , he paid 600+ , so my phone is much better .... i cannot see myself settling for a phone in the future that has anything but the best or near best camera . I also own a sony A6000 for family photo and holidays , but having this phone in my pocket has really saved the day . ok enough rambling

Hi, I just upgraded from a G4, fab camera. I don't find the G5 to be quite as good, or should I say I just have some issues with it that might be solvable. I usually take landscape photo's when out and about and I find in bright light there seems to be an orange push to white sunlight. Also in dark settings I find a lot of glare, beams of light coming from street lights for example. Often is can be cause by an dirty lens but I find even when I clean it thoroughly I still get this effect to some extent. Anyone experiencing the same issues?

I just recently switched from Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge to an LG G5 because I broke it and the only phone I could afford and found a really great deal, LG G5 already Unlocked barely with a SUPCASE and screen protector which was a great deal for 190$.

The cameras is as good and maybe even a bit better because of the wide screen angle dual camera.
But damn the LG cameras software sucks and pretty much all other apps and other cameras you can download on it sucks...

I miss the Samsung default camera app...

The best apps are the to take photos is the Candy Camera app and a mod or port of the google camera... but still doesn't pleasant to use as Samsung cameras app.

Candy Camera : For filter and photo editor (It's the best)

I just posted the Port/Mod in the LG G5 section.

other good apps are Z Camera, B612, Camera 360, Cameringo, Open Camera, Camera ZOOM...

Wow tgat great to know

I've used the LG G5 for about a month and I'm disappointed. Most new (2016) smartphones take nice outdoor pictures of things that don't move much. Go inside and try to photograph your kid dribbling up/down the court with this phone and you'll be frustrated. Indoor pics with any kind of movement is a guaranteed blurry picture. I've turned OIS off and tried the same thing today at my son's birthday party (indoors at the skate rink), poor focus and slow shots.
I've had the S7 and it takes much better pictures of things in motion (has a fast focus/sports mode)... This phone is going bye bye soon because of this one issue.

Could you please tell me how you turned off the OIS:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Say "cheese", then rate this thread to express how photos taken with the LG G5 come out. A higher rating indicates that photos offer rich color (without over-saturating), sharp detail (with all subjects in-focus), and appropriate exposure (with even lighting).

    Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

    What?? Is it true that G5 has worst camera ? Phonearena says it has best camera when compared with S7 and 6s plus.

    If you put it in manual mode and mess with it a bit it'll take great pics. Auto mode sucks. For me at least. And yes, I've made sure the lens is clean and all that.

    yeah, I feel the same, my dads G3 camera is awesome... but even under the the G5s latest v10d, the images were clearer and OIS was more stable on the G4 in AUTO mode. I do use Manual mode alot, but sometimes its nice just to pull out your phone and snap a quick situation or a few quick images.

    Intrestingly, I find sometimes in "Auto" mode, switiching "OIS" OFF (toggle "OIS" and "steady cam" mode in camera settings), takes better Macro shots, which says to me.. that in its current state, the G5 camera needs work.

    However, the G5 camera is a really great camera and a really great device all round, its just a shame reviewers seem to go more for how it looks rather than its innovations
