LG G2 Vs HTC One: Game Of Phones: Camera Interface And Features

Camera interface and features

The main capturing camera on the LG G2 has an F/2.4 lens and a 13MP sensor that captures photos with a maximum resolution of 4160 x 3120 and 1080p videos at 60fps . There's also optical image stabilization and a 2.1MP front-facing capturing camera that too shoots 1080p videos.

On the other side of the ring is the HTC One with a 1/3" stabilized sensor with a 16:9 aspect ratio that's mounted behind a 5-element lens with F/2.0 aperture. The sensor takes photos with 2688 x 1520 pixel resolution, but switching to the traditional 4:3 aspect ratio limits the maximum resolution to 2048 x 1520 pixels, or just over 3MP.

The fact that HTC has gone for a far lower resolution means that the actual pixels are far larger than those on the LG G2 conventional sensor. In HTC marketing talk these larger pixels are called UltraPixels. In theory having fewer, larger pixels limits the performance in fine light, but should benefit low-light shots.

The LG G2 capturing camera interface features a bar on the correct with the still/video toggle, a virtual shutter key and gallery shortslit on the correct and a column with four shortcuts on the left.

You can pick between one of twelve shooting modes - Normal, Shot and Clear (erases something from a picture), HDR, Panorama, VR Panorama (Photo Sphere shot), Beauty shot, Dual capturing camera shot, Night scene, Sports, Time Catch shot and Intelligent Auto mode, which automatically selects the correct scene.

The Time catch shot feature (also called Time machine camera) snaps a photo, but also records several photos of what happened before you hit the shutter key. You can save any of the photos on that list that you like.

The HTC One's capturing camera interface is pretty simple - there are two shutter keys (one for stills and one for video), above them is the gallery shortslit and below is the effects button. On the left side of the classy screen you acquire flash mode selector and the Zoe toggle.

When you enable Zoe (an indicator at the bottom of the classy screen confirms you're in Zoe mode) and tap the still shutter key. The key turns into a progress bar, counting down the three seconds during which the phone records video, reminding you to stay relatively still.

Winner: HTC One. The number of features offered by the LG G2 capturing camera is undoubtedly higher, but the fact that Zoe works without requiring any effort on your part wins this round for the HTC flagship. Those who like to fiddle with settings, scenes and modes will appreciate the G2 capturing camera UI better, though.
