I've been watching the larger phones to decide when to jump in, and the LG G3 was reviewed as competitive with the top models on the market, especially for camera performance, so I was eager to try this new model out. Here's the basic overview:
- f/1.8 Lowlight Lens,
- Manual Mode,
- Optical Image Stabilization,
- Laser Autofocus,
- High-res Image Sensors (16mp rear camera, 8mp front camera for great selfies)
- Color Spectrum Sensor in addition to many, many more features
It's an attractive phone right out of the box, with its leather case.

So let's get right to it. Have you every tried to capture a decent photo of a California poppy? Most digital cameras do crazy things with the white balance and color, but as you can see at the top above, the Color Spectrum Sensor measured a perfect white balance and created a stunning result right out of camera.

Now let's look at another unedited shot, straight out of camera, captured in low light using the camera's HDR mode. Like every automatically created JPG, the camera made some automatic adjustments, and there is some compression in the output when you view it in detail, as we should expect:

I'm still trying out the other features of the phone. The image stabilization is truly superior. The panorama mode is solid. I still need to try out the 4K video on a worthy subject. We've had some dull, gray, rainy weather over the weekend, but it looks like we may have better light for the next few days, so I can show you what this device can do under a variety of interesting conditions.
