lg g3 shootoutThe LG G3 has been getting a lot of attention these days and rightfully so. This is the first Android smartphone from a more mainstream manufacturer to include a QHD display as part of its specs, beating the likes of Sony, Samsung, HTC, and Motorola to the punch. Its camera is also one that many are taking a look at due to its built-in OIS and a laser that will help with speeding up its autofocus.

Now previously we have seen how the LG G3 holds its own against the Samsung Galaxy S5 in terms of photography, but just how well does it stack up against the likes of the other flagship phones, like the HTC One M8, the Google Nexus 5, or the iPhone 5s? Well the folks over at Droid-Life have decided to find out in a shootout between all the major flagship smartphones, save for the Sony Xperia Z2.

The photos pictured above are some of the samples that they managed to grab, with the LG G3 starting from the left, followed by the Galaxy S5, One M8, Nexus 5, and iPhone 5s. According to their findings, the LG G3 had really fast autofocus, presumably thanks to its built-in laser guide. They also found that the LG G3 did really well when it came to macro photography, so if macro photography is something you’re interested in, then the LG G3 could be worth checking out.

Now at the end of the day, the camera is only one factor in the overall picture when it comes to choosing a smartphone. It also boils down to personal preference in what one likes to see in an image. Some prefer their photos more saturated, some prefer their photos more natural, some don’t mind noisier photos, and so on, but what do you guys think? Which phone performed the best?
