Camera comparison: Huawei P10 Plus vs LG G6 vs Samsung Galaxy S8

The 2017 smartphone war is heating up in South Africa, as the LG G6 (review) and Samsung Galaxy S8 recently launched in the country. Throw in this week’s launch of the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus, and consumers are really spoiled for choice.

What about the cameras though? How do they fare? Well, the G6 is packing two 13MP cameras (one f/1.8 shooter and an f/2.4 wide angle camera), the S8 has a solitary 12MP f/1.7 camera and the P10 Plus packs two f/1.8 cameras (one being a 20MP monochrome camera, the other being a traditional 12MP shooter).

It’s all well and good in the spec department then, but how do they compare to one another? Take a look below and decide for yourself. We’ve set the phones to auto mode, disabling the HDR option too. Otherwise, we tried to replicate our shots as closely as possible, but expect minor variations. The photos are quite large, so you can click on a thumbnail and right click the still-loading image to open it in a new tab — or just wait a few minutes.
