Camera Decisions – LG G5 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Here’s the dilemma. Do you want the camera from the LG G5 or the camera from the Samsung Galaxy S7 / S7 Edge.

The LG G5 takes amazing shots with both rear lenses and allows for cropping on every photo. The 8mp 135ยบ wide angle lens is epic. Nothing gets close on a phone.

Can the LG G5 do action shots. Yes it can. See below.

But here’s the point about the Samsung Galaxy S7 camera. It’s super fast and accurate. A short while ago I had to show someone a few photos of my dogs. I ended up choosing the shots that I took from the S7 as they were more fun ones and closer up and in focus.

So long as you are fairly near to your subject the S7 will hit the jackpot, even with heavy sharpening and post processing. But as soon as there is some distance like the shot below, cropping is not worth it due to the lack of pixels, whereas cropping this shot below on the LG G5 would be a breeze.
