My wife and I were out yesterday in Widecombe in the Moor on Dartmoor. This is a beautiful place and if you happen to visit, make sure you pop into the Cafe on The Green for some tasty grub.
During our visit to Widecombe my wife took photos using her iPhone 6S and I was snapping away with my LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7. So whilst the photo viewpoints don’t always match, the conditions were identical, and this provided some great photos to compare. I also thought the photos taken were more realistic to a normal day trip, rather than trying to take photos in a prepared format.
Widecombe Village Green
First up is the shot from the iPhone 6S below. I actually prefer the iPhone 6S shot here. Look at all the clouds and sky. Slightly better exposed and more natural and realistic to the scene.
Below is from the LG G5 using the wide lens. Dramatic as always from the wide angle.
Below is the shot from the Samsung S7. Deep saturated colours. Some may prefer this screen look. Good contrast too.
St Pancras Church Shots
First up a 3 shots from the iPhone 6S. These shots are the Church and graveyard are close calls in terms of accuracy to the scenes themselves.
Below 3 shots from the LG G5. Some really great snaps from the G5.
Below are 3 shots from the Samsung S7. Sharp and saturated. Still great looking photos.
So now the remainder of the shots are by myself using the LG G5 and Samsung S7.
Macro and Flower.
Below are the 2 shots from the LG G5. The G5 does a good job, but not as good as the S7. The wind was blowing slightly when taking these shots and the ones from the S7.
Below are the 2 shots from the S7. The S7 is the clear winner here. Stunning. Oodles of detail.
The Church House
Below are 2 shots from the LG G5. One normal and the other wide. Too close to call between the 2 phones. Some areas the extra resolution means there is more detail to crop with the G5.
Below is the shot from the S7. A very good shot but not as much detail as the G5, but excellent nonetheless.
Final shot from the LG G5, using the wide lens to capture the Cafe on the Green restaurant.
This is to highlight why the G5 is ideal for visiting places. The wide lens can capture the scene in a unique way.
Overall all 3 phones did a great job. The iPhone is still a decent contender against the LG G5 and Samsung S7 in good lighting. The S7 did a better job with close and macro shots than the LG G5. And the LG G5 takes wonderful wide angle shots.
