In this extreme low light camera test, we take on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs. LG G5 vs. HTC 10 taking it around the busy night streets in Nimmanhaemin district of Chiang Mai, Thailand.
What we learned from this camera test is that all of these smartphones do pretty well in extreme low light and the differences are very minor. In low light, the HTC 10 seems to have focusing problems as we had hard time focusing in many of these shots. Because of that, many of the shots from HTC 10 came out out of focus while its camera is plenty capable.
LG G5 also kept pace well, giving some excellent photos and beating out both S7 Edge and HTC 10 in certain situations with its back camera. Now the wide-angle 2nd back camera proved to be nearly useless in super low-light situations as there was too much noise. For front camera, LG G5 did the worst, very noisy photos that were not on par with S7 Edge and HTC 10.
Overall, the Galaxy S7 Edge did better than both HTC 10 and LG G5. Although differences were minor, the S7 Edge did have less noise and more clarity in most of the low light photos.
