Although photo editing skills and tools have come a long way, they can only do so much.

LG G4 Wins Blind Camera Test vs iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 in low light

This past week we ran a Blind Camera Test between the LG G4, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the iPhone 6 with a number of photos taken in low-lighting environments. We placed photos taken by each smartphone next to one another without the names of their devices attached and asked you, the readers, to vote on which photos looked best.
