Your smartphone likely includes the most important camera you own: the camera that’s sitting in your pocket, ready to capture images at a moment’s notice. We’ve been doing a series of smartphone camera tests to determine which phone has the absolute best camera, and now it’s time to compare the new HTC U11 against our current top pick, the LG G6.
A bit about myself: I’m a professional cinematographer and photographer. For my day job, I shoot, edit, and sometimes perform in videos for PCWorld. For my camera testing, I pay attention to specific parameters, mixing some practical considerations with my own professional interests. I look into granular details that are important to pros, but also use the phone cameras just like you probably do: In auto mode, as if I just whipped my phone from my pocket.
