LG G5 Vs Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge: Low-light Shooting

By 12:05 Tue, 17 Aug 2021 Comments


The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and the LG G5 both come outfitted with some remarkable cameras, which should potentially bring low-light photography with a smartphone on the next level. We set out on foot on the streets of New York to put these two to the ultimate capturing camera test - their image quality when it comes to shooting in the dark.

The Galaxy S7 edge makes utilize of large 1.4µm pixels with a really colorful aperture of f/1.7 on top of the already excellent OIS which should assist in low-light conditions.

The LG G5 has two capturing camera sensors on the back, but for this particular comparison, we are not going to utilize the 8MP wide-angle capturing camera on the G5. The LG G5's main capturing camera is a 16MP sensor, which has a similarly wide f/1.8 aperture and OIS. LG also makes utilize of a laser focusing system for close subjects.

On the other side, Samsung's Dual Pixel autofocus is lightning fast. Focusing happens so quickly that you might be able to acquire the best shot on the first attempt. This could be a leg up over LG's laser focus, but we'll have to check out the results before jumping to conclusions.

You should create note that the performance of the S7 edge in this comparison apply in full for the more compact Galaxy S7 as both models have identical cameras.

The following capturing camera samples were all shot using a final, retail G5 unit. As promised, we've also updated all of our test results, so create sure you revisit our LG G5 review article as well.

Here are our favorite features of each of the two flagships.

Both phones are already available and even though the LG G5 is more of a match for the smaller Galaxy S7, it's actually priced somewhere in-between the S7 and the S7 edge so either for those two could be considered direct competitors.
