Tom, 18 Oct 2018I don't believe in those scores. I don't believe that DxOMa... moreYes. You can't take the headline figure - AT ALL.

Many phones would be high on the light if you remove things like 'Zoom' which in my opinion is a feature, not a factor in photo taking. It penalises phones without telephoto lenses.

LG G7 scores lower than the previously reviewed phone, Nokia 8.

But if you compare the numbers it is clear G7 is far more capable.

Exposure, colour, texture and noise are going to be the key stats for most users. Average consumer just points and shoots. They don't invest time in adjusting settings.

G7 is significantly better than the Nokia 8 in exposure and colour.

Aniketsh, 18 Oct 2018is it a mediocre camera???? coz many reviewers stated that ... moreI haven't used OP6 but G7 + Thinq lack of details and inconsistent image quality was true for me. I definitely feel it could have been better. If only LG does some software magic (like Pixel series), it has the potential.

The V30 has a better performing DAC. It also is better looking (no chin/notch). The G7, is easier to hold. The V30 is not easily used with one hand.
It's a massive phone. Too wide for my taste.

Ratings and scores are not something I understand or believe in. But the issues I faced, are true. I know LG can fix this but unfortunately, it may take long or never happen. LG now doesn't support their excellent devices as brilliant as they used to.

I don't believe in those scores. I don't believe that DxOMark is a scam either, just that they have no idea about how to represent camera's capabilities in numbers, let alone making a chart about it.

Judging by the score, it seems like no one from LG paid any money to DxO, hence the low rating.

It also shows why G7 is only being reviewed now even though it has been out for months, while some mobiles get their scores publishes seconds after the unveiling launch.

Okay, I actually now realize what others are saying about smartphone cameras not being as good as regular cameras. Seriously, everything just doesn't look as sharp from most cameras now to me. Is there a problem with my eyes?
