Here are some photos that my wife took back in August with her new phone. She has the LG V20 model while I have an older LG K10. The camera on the LG V20 boasts twice the number of megapixels compared to the older LG K10 (16MP vs. 8MP). However, as this CNET article indicates, more megapixels doesn’t always equate to better pictures. The camera’s sensor is also vital in taking good pictures. A better quality sensor will enable you to capture more light per megapixel, and reduce image noise.
Based on the eye test, the LG V20 seem to allow you to zoom in a little bit better. Some of the images below (Especially #3: Extreme Closeup) are too close up for my older LG K10. The image would have come out blurry. Plus, the LG V20 has better software than my LG K10. The software on my wife’s phone has a manual mode that enables you to manually focus the camera, change the shutter speed, modify the white balance (WB), play with the exposure value (EV), and modify the ISO settings.
While I still feel that I can take good pictures with my LG K10, the newer LG V20 has some features worth exploring. That said, if you’re looking for a new phone/camera, read up on the specs and reviews. Even the LG V20 got some middling reviews from some reviewers.
