OnePlus 2 and LG G4 camera faceoff; night shots


The other day, we posted an article of the OnePlus 2 taking the iPhone 6 head-on in a camera shoot-out at night. OnePlus really wants to show that they have improved the camera on their second device, and from the first shots, they definitely have. Today, they have pitted the LG G4 against the OnePlus 2 in a low-light battle.

While the OnePlus One wasn’t the best with low-light imagery, OnePlus went all-in with the 2 packing it with a Sony IMX214 sensor, optical image stabilization, f/2.0 aperture, and most recently, a rumored laser auto-focus sensor. It is going up against the G4, which many, including myself, think is the best camera in a smartphone in 2015. The G4 is packing a 16 megapixel camera with an f/1.8 aperture alongside optical image stabilization and laser auto-focus.

Once again we are given a gallery of the night shots for comparison, and I must admit, I am glad that they are comparing them. While the OnePlus 2 definitely beat out the iPhone 6, it falls behind the G4. It just can’t match the wide aperture. While it is comparable, the sharpness and quality in the low-light images just cannot be matched. It does an excellent job for what is has however. The images gallery can be seen below. The G4 images are on the left, the OnePlus 2 images are on the right.

The OnePlus 2 camera can definitely hold its own against this years top flagships. It is a huge improvement from its predecessor. We are now only four days away from the official unveiling of the OnePlus 2 on July 27th. They will be live streaming the event in virtual reality, so get your Google Cardboards ready. If anymore leaks or news surface, we’ll be sure to have you covered.
