My brother has the iPhone 6 and he's jealous of the pics I take with my G4. It's funny to hear and see him talk about my phone and my camera. So much for the 'shot on iPhone 6'.

Considering how much newer the G4 is it would want to be better. We will see how it stands up against the 6s in a few months.

Re: iPhone 6

The G4 is better compared against the iPhone 6 Plus, not the 6. They both have OIS. IMO, the G4 does take slightly better pics but the key word here is slightly. Its also somewhat newer and I'm sure LG was targeting the 6 Pluses camera but I doubt Apple even knows LG exists (okay, I'm exaggerating, Apple knows LG makes phones).

The G4 takes better pics than both of the iPhones, where the G4 separates itself is in the manual mode and the front facing camera. Although there are apps such as Camera Pro on iOS that give you controls similar to manual mode, but not in the native app. The front facing camera on the G4 beats the pants off the iPhone.

I was exaggerating to make the point that LG spends their time targeting and try to compete against Apple, while Apples seems to largely ignore that LG exists in the phone market. I think Apple pays a little more attention to Samsung but not a whole heck of a lot. Its customers are a largely a loyal crowd. There are less of us that play both sides of the fence. In the end we wind up with phones that are increasingly capable. So, after this Fall, months later we'll have phones that best the iPhone in some areas, and that's to be expected since that's the intent. It is my opinion that Apple doesn't pay their competition too much attention and instead focuses more on besting their own previous generation. That's not to say they're blind to what the public wants (cough, iPhone 6 Plus, cough). Soon, Apple will release the next iterations and LG, Samsung, and others will be focusing on how to, next Spring, best what Apple releases this Fall. It's good for us consumers, keeps things interesting and gives us increasingly capable devices.

I have a feeling that not a lot of people use manual mode on the phone. I know some do, but I have sneaking feeling that most don't. So, while it may result in some better pics, if most phone users (including G4 owners) don't use manual mode on their phone's camera that advantage may be lost on most owners. I do think the G4's camera is splendid but I don't think so good it's gonna pull anyone that was considering an S6 or iPhone 6 Plus away. It's just nice to have if you happen to have chosen the G4.

These kind of comments are somewhat hilarious. Wait till next year! LOL Isn't that what the Cubbies always say?

The crop bezel surrounding the "shot on iphone" is almost as big as the bezel sourrounding 2012 screen on the iphone. The bigger the white bezel on your TV, the less chance of seeing the video's limitations. On my 60 inch, looks like hell.

My point is that having the capability without having to download an app is pretty cool. For those that choose not to use it, the auto mode is pretty awesome, but not enough reason to lure customers from iPhones or Galaxies.

Re: iPhone 6

I'm coming from a 6 plus and the G4 out shoots it's by far. The G4 has the best point and click camera on any phone on the market currently

You're talking about phones from different years. Wait until all the phones made in 2015 come out and you can talk about who has the best camera on a smart phone from the same generation. Its like comparing a 6+ to a G2.

Apple pays a lot of attention to the competition. Where they were once innovators they are now copy cats. Their notification tray? The iPhone 6 plus is targeting note users. They thought wholeheartedly that no phone should be larger than 4 inches. And their last two phoned were all larger. I'm not saying that all other companies are original.... Far from it! But to say that Apple doesn't care about their competition is just silly. All they do is see their competition and copy. The same for Samsung, Sony, LG, etc. Hardly anyone is original anymore xD. It's a shame really. I really liked some of those standout phones from years past.

I could give a crap about what generation something is. What is available? That is what you compare to. Based on your reasoning we could never compare phones unless the are released at the same time. When the new iphone comes out android fans would say, well you are comparing to a 6 month old phone.......

I think comparing to phones released in the same calendar year is reasonable or you could be comparing to all phones ever released.

Haha. I saw an article the other day comparing the Note 4 to the iPhone 6s Plus. I thought what the? Let's compare a phone that nobody really knows what it's gonna be to a phone that will be upgraded around the same time the 6s Plus is released. Silly bloggers.
