LG's newest offering in the market - the LG G Flex - is quite a handful when it comes to the device's size and price, but that doesn't take away the fact that the device boasts impressive specifications in terms of the built-in cameras (both front and rear). On an overall note, the cameras are worth the time spent on them.
Similar to the LG G2 before it, the G Flex's camera is quite a treat to carry around in your pocket for all the great photos you are looking to capture in the course of a day of the place that you are visiting.
However, while the 13 MP camera for G Flex is one which constantly delivers excellent results, it is needed to be said that the overall camera software will be a bit confusing for those who are new to devices made by LG. Nonetheless, it can also be one of the easiest things to operate once you get a good hold of it.
The camera, itself, offers a number of shooting modes (such as HDR, panorama, dual shot, and burst shot) which offers a brief description from LG. There is an option, however, to turn those tips off as per the user's preference. But for the sake of comparison, with the previous LG G2 in consideration, the camera might fall a bit flat for those expecting the same.
A Few Small Issues
For example, although it's a 13 MP snapper, the lack of previously found OIS (optical image stabilization) could be one of the reasons why the camera may not match everyone's taste. While the images in natural color will look quite breathtaking, the others that you might want to try out in low light situations could be a major deal breaker.

But all that being said, the image quality of the G Flex's camera is pretty good and will impress most who aren't primarily into photography and are looking for a simple photo for memory's sake. And that will complimented by the fact that the colors in the image will look natural, with sharp edges and lines.
The G Flex-based HDR offering is actually quite good enough. And so much so that LG actually tried to make up for the lack of OIS in the device's camera by offering a powerful HDR feature that makes full use of the camera's sensors which also offers some kind of backing to low light photography.
However, the camera does have a habit of overexposing scenes with the result more than often being images that are sort of unbalanced and not enough crisp that you expected them to be in the first place. And these kind of things you will notice easily once the HDR mode is in up and running.
The time the camera takes to load up is pretty fact enough for anyone's liking with the built-in burst mode also assisting in capturing fast action images. Apart from that, users will also have ability to shoot still photos while they're recording videos, which makes the camera more than reliable for anyone looking to make the most out to natural light situations and capture as many images as possible.
