In order for a phone to be top class, it is necessary for it to have a high-quality camera. In this article you shall find our theoretical and real-world comparison between two high-end smartphones. On the one hand, there is the LG V10 with its 16MP rear camera with laser autofocus and a dual LED flash. Its specs sheet also contains an aperture value of f/1.8 and 1.12 μm pixel size which suggests quality lowlight performance. You will be also fascinated by the manual mode which includes a menu rich in customizable settings and options. On the other hand, we have Apple’s flagship – the iPhone 6s. It features a 12MP rear camera with a dual LED flash, and has an aperture value of f/2.2 and 1.042 μm pixel size. However, the menu you it offers is not exactly rich, but perhaps most important here is the image quality, and for this reason we took several test shots in different lighting and conditions.
|Smartphone||LG V10||Apple iPhone 6s|
|Sensor model||Sony IMX234 Exmor RS||Sony IMX315|
|Resolution||5312 х 2988 pixels||4608 х 2592 pixels|

|Pixel size||1.12 μm||1.042 μm|
For the purpose of this juxtaposition, we present to you several test shots in different lighing. All photos on the left have been taken with an LG V10, while the ones on the right – with an iPhone 6s.
In poor lighting V10’s photos are brighter but also contain much more noise than those of its opponent.
The fast f/1.8 aperture of the V10 helps you make quality photos at night and preserves visibility better than the iPhone 6s.
Apple takes the upper hand in this round.
Both models have 4K video recording capabilities.
