It's time to really compare: just how good is the LG G4's camera? LG's talking a big game about the quality of the LG G4's camera, and in the time we've been playing with it, it's certainly produced some impressive images.

Samsung's always thrown in a bunch of free apps and subscriptions with their phones, but T-Mobile's throwing in some freebies of their own.
