It is the Lumia 950 vs LG G6 in this camera head to head by Mister Mobility. One of 2017’s best camera phones goes up against the legend of the Lumia 950 from 2015 and still one of the best around.
Ever since the LG G6 came in, the one thing I have been very excited about doing is pitching its camera against the Lumia 950’s legendary camera. You can imagine that I have been quite the shutterbug in the last few weeks.
I do not enjoy carrying two smartphones on me, but I have managed to pull it off despite the inconveniences. I have taken quite a number of comparison shots with both flagship devices and picked a handful for your evaluation.
But before we proceed, let’s take time to spell out what each of these champs bring to the table.
Lumia 950 vs LG G6 Camera Comparison Table
|Lumia 950||LG G6|
|Main Camera||20 MP OIS, autofocus||Dual 13 MP (OIS, autofocus) + 13 MP (no autofocus)|
|Aperture||f/1.9||f/1.8 + f/2.4|
|Selfie Camera||5 MP, f/2.4||5 MP, f/2.2|
On paper, we should argue that the Lumia 950 should produce greater resolutions, while the G6 produce better low-light images. That is a very simplistic summary. In reality, things are not that simple and the results can go in different directions. The Lumia also has the added advantage of being equipped with Zeiss lens.

Selfie Camera Sample
The Lumia 950’s selfie camera was left in the past a long time ago and unable to keep up with more recent selfie cameras in the market. I took a shot to give you an idea of how outdated it is in comparison to the G6’s.
The Lumia 950’s selfie camera is not even in the fight. Let’s just skip along.
