As some of you may know, Photography is one of my favorite hobbies and whenever I get the pleasure of being on a launch team one of the biggest things for me is the camera and how well it takes photos. When the LG G2 came
out I was slightly disappointed with the camera, in low light situations the camera tended to look washed out, still took great photos but with a 13MP camera, for me, it left a little to be desired. When I found out I was selected for the
LG G FLEX I was pretty excited (really excited) and looking forward to the curved OLED display and the camera. I have to say that I have been thoroughly impressed with this camera. LG has done a great job improving the camera
over the LG G2, still could do a better job with low light situations but overall I've been really happy with it. One of the things I am surprised that LG didn't include was the OIS (Optical Image Stabilization). I did find a brief explanation
of OIS from engadget and you can see in some of the lower light photos how OIS does make a difference
"So what's missing from the G Flex camera? Optical image stabilization (OIS). Apparently it wasn't an oversight: LG told us that it had originally planned to add OIS, but the module would've been too tall to fit in the phone.
This doesn't seem to have a huge impact on the quality of images taken in daylight, but it certainly has an adverse effect on low-light performance, which already wasn't as good as this year's Lumias and the HTC One.
You can't capture as much light, which makes resulting images noisier and blurrier. Aside from this, our experience taking photos in broad daylight was just as good"
Here are some comparison photos between the LG G Flex and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, both are 13MP cameras and the settings are as close to similar as I could get them relative to the device. The LG G Flex is 13MP@4160X3120 pixels and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is 13MP@4128x3096 pixels.
Overall I really like the camera on the G Flex, its fast clear and produces some great images!
