DOU­BLE VI­SION

Your next phone should take pho­tog­ra­phy as se­ri­ously as you do: here’s why the LG X Cam fits the bill

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - Feature -

The LG X Cam is the smart­phone built with mo­bile pho­tog­ra­phers in mind. Flip the 6.9mm-thin device on its front and you’ll find not one but two cam­eras: the first a pow­er­ful 13-megapixel snap­per, the sec­ond an ul­tra wide-an­gle five-megapixel camera with a mas­sive 120-de­gree field of view – which opens up a whole world of cre­ative pos­si­bil­i­ties.

That wide-an­gle lens gives pho­tog­ra­phers a camera that sees al­most ex­actly the same scene they do. It en­ables you to cap­ture the whole of the group, scene or vista you’re sur­vey­ing with the ab­so­lute min­i­mum of post-pro­cess­ing fuss – and with­out hav­ing to walk miles to get ev­ery­thing in shot.

If post-pro­cess­ing fuss is your idea of a good time, the X Cam will make light work of it thanks to its 5.2in, full HD Arc Glass dis­play and eight-core, 1.14GHZ pro­ces­sor, while the An­droid Marsh­mal­low op­er­at­ing sys­tem gives you a royal flush of photo-edit­ing apps to choose from.

Around the front of the X Cam is an eight-megapixel camera for hi-res self­ies, com­plete with face-de­tec­tion abil­i­ties that can fire the shut­ter au­to­mat­i­cally – so you won’t spoil care­ful com­po­si­tions when you tap the on-screen shut­ter re­lease.

If you’re a ded­i­cated pho­tog­ra­pher, creat­ing spell­bind­ing new im­ages will be the cen­tre of your world – and it’s the cen­tre of the LG X Cam’s, too.
