    The s7s images are narrower(yes even narrower than 78° lense on G5)which compensates for dearth of pixels , s7s pics being sharper,though they underexpose shadows and gain yellow tint.

    Lgs images are wider have less noise , have greater dynamic envelope and much accurate. The secondary is poorer in quality though it appears to be a welcome addition and not just a gimmick.

    The s7 gains more edge(no pun intended) as lights go down(sharper).

    Good to see that newer imx260 didn't blew out older imx234 out of the water.

    Check the samples yourself on G***ena, and whats your opinion about them?

    Both are good I think. If u takes a lot of picture at night the s7 will be perfect for u, but if you like to take group pictures, landscape, or any wide scene or u prefer acurate colour then the g5 will suit u better

    Samsung's camera is the best. I even prefer shooting videos with Samsung Galaxy S6 and S7 rather than with DSLR's. Talking about LG G5 is a great smartphone with good camera but not as god as Samsung Galaxy S7.

    Thats why we cant have good discussions in forums,
    Such wisdom, when you havent checked the samples by yourself.

    G5 trumped in the videos, more detail , more scene and better optical stabalization.


    Overall G5 faired out to be better imo, but yeah the software are still raw and may change upon release so still too early to pass a judgement

    That seems to be my issue hindering my decision. I can't say any of those examples pertain to me, or possibly the general camera user (takes pics at night, group pics etc). I simply want the best camera for any occasion I want to take a picture, be it day, night, group, whatever. I haven't really gotten a sense on which one may or may not be the overall best for general use

    Having used both note5 and g4 i can tell you that theres no 'best shot' , it kind of depends on what you prefer. If you are just a plain guy yearning for some great photos samsungs post processing will provide you with more pleasing results(warmer ,more saturation)

    If you are a photography enthusiast, Lgs true to life pics will do you the best.

    Post processing appears to be largely similar in g5 and s7 as compared to there predecessors.

    Honestly the only real "selling point" I look for anymore is motion capture. Most cameras these days can capture nice or at least usable pictures of stagnant objects. I'm curious if either the S7 or G5 changed or improved from their past incarnations. What brought my to the G4 was it's ability to capture objects in motion. So now I'm wondering if either phones improved on it, and a small concern with the G5 (for me) is if the phone stayed the same or even stepped backwards with the new dual lens.

    I'd say it's going to be a toss up. With the S7 being faster and the G5 capturing slightly more detail.

    Looking at them.... S7 has the better camera, clearly. And before you get your hockles up, I am, by no stretch of the imagination, a Samsung fanboy. I've owned several LG phones... Nexus 5, G3.. my wife is on her third (N5, G3 and her current G4). I have zero desire to own a S7 (or any current Samsung phone for that matter), but I am debating either the S7 or the G5 to replace my wife's G4. So I am putting my own personal tastes aside here and looking at things with an open mind, trying to pick the phone that would best suit what SHE wants.

    And looking at these pictures and going off what I saw with the G4 and 6P... I am leaning towards getting her the S7. The G5 might have that trick wide angle camera, but when you pop over to the other 'narrow' sensor, the S7 will just do a better, more consistent job across all conditions.

    Both do great in ideal conditions, but the smaller sensor on the G5 starts to get noisy when things start to get darker. Look at the shot with the three towers. The shadowed side of the rightmost tower, the G5 gets muddy and noisy where the S7 does a lot better in maintaining detail and much less noise. The wine corks sort of show the same behavior. The G5 has to process things a lot more to reduce the noise and you start to get that oil painting effect.

    Granted, this is exactly what is expected once I heard the G5 was going to use the same sensor that they slapped in the G4 and V10. The G5 might have more pixels, but they can't cheat physics. I just got back from vacation and took a TON of pictures with my wife's G4 and my Nexus 6P. In good lighting, both the G4 and 6P took pictures that were close enough to not make any appreciable difference. But as the environment got darker, so did the quality gap between the 6P's shots and the G4.

    Damn you LG!! I mean, had they followed Samsung and Google and slapped a larger main camera sensor in there and paired that with the wide angle shooter.... they would have had one hell of a camera set up on this thing. But they pretty much stood pat... and I think that was a huge mistake. I really wanted to see the G5's camera perform better... but from what I see in those comparisons, it's basically the G4 with a second wide-angle camera... and that wide angle camera doesn't add enough value to overcome the gap between its main camera and the S7's.

    Sigh. I sort of agree. Im a reformed LG fanboy (after years of moto) but still a bit too many blurry pics when I'm not in manual on the G4. If the new Samsung can improve that, I may be a buyer.

    As someone who takes a lot of their kids indoors, the focusing speed of the s7 in less than ideal lighting is a huge draw for me. With how well LG has done with their cameras in the past, I was really expecting to see them do something big this year in that department.

    The v10 has an excellent camera, but trying to get a good picture of a 1yr.old that won't sit still is really hard to do.

    Burst shot helps a lot on my G4. For my 1 year old and for my other kids playing soccer action shots
