Who's the better shooter in lowlight?

In particular, the LG G6 is armed with an advanced type of 13 MP f/1.8 w/ OIS + 13 MP f/2.2 wide angle w/ PDAF and dual tone LED flash setup behind. On the other hand, Huawei P10 Plus boasts a Leica Summilux 20 MP f/1.8 monochrome sensor + 12 MP f/1.8 RGB sensor w/ 4-in-1 Hybrid AF, OIS, 2x zoom, and dual tone LED flash.

Since both have a bright and wide f/1.8 aperture opening, both are expected to performance exceptionally well even in lowlight for the phone. To find out who shoots better nighttime or lowlight images, we tested the LG G6 and Huawei P10 Plus on auto mode around 
McKinley Taguig City area last night.

On this scene, both the LG G6 and Huawei P10 Plus proved that they can shoot well even in lowlight. The LG G6 is a little paler in color while the Huawei P10 Plus is a little oversaturated. The color is closer to what P10 Plus rendered though. Plus Huawei's offering had the slightly better dynamic range and sharpness. P10 Plus - 1 point

Again the G6 produced the slightly paler, softer, and a tad washed image in this very tough lighting condition. On the other hand, the P10 Plus also didn't get the results we wanted, but it has a more vibrant, brighter, and sharper detail. The background blur is better as well. P10 Plus - 2 points

It's LG's time to shine this time. It has better exposure and has a wider dynamic range. Overall details are better as well. The P10 Plus has less contrast and was a little underexposed. The moon and building indoor details are more dramatic and detailed on the P10 Plus though. But, overall, G6 had out nod this time. G6 - 1 point

LG's offering produced the brighter shot in this scene again, but it is a tad more washed in comparison with what Huawei go. We also liked the dramatic colors and deeper details that the P10 Plus produced. P10 Plus - 3 points

Again, both proved to be wonderful lowlight mobile shooters in this scene. The G6 had slightly better exposure even if its a little yellowish compared with P10 Plus. While the P10 Plus got the more accurate color, it is under exposed and a little darker. LG G6 - 2 points

Deciding for the winner on this last photo is tough. The leaves and background had slightly better dyanmic range and detail on the G6, but the focus on text is sharper and more accurate on the P10 Plus. Would give it a tie. G6 - 3 points, P10 Plus - 4 points

Verdict

With a score of 3 to 4, its almost a tie! The LG G6 often handled the exposure very well, but has the tendency to overexpose sometimes. Most of our shots taken with the G6 are highly detailed though.

On the other hand, the Huawei P10 is mostly hit than miss in lowlight. Even if there are times that it underexpose the subject, the Leica dramatic colors are present. This is also the best lowlight shooter from Huawei yet.

Overall, its just a matter of preference as both differ in photo character. Can't go wrong with both for point and shoot lowlight photography.

Note: This photo comparison isn't complete yet, both phones are designed to shoot in most conditions and are equipped with different shooting modes to match your preference.
