Wouldn't buy the G4, after a while every device seems to be getting a bootloop issue. Seems to me a manufacturer defect.
If you get a g4 make sure you havea decent warranty and backup everything every week at least
Xperia z3+ is amazing camera. I wouldn't swap it for any other phone out there.
P9

​Only the early models.
pleasantly surprised with P9 camera. great for still objects on manual mode. struggles a little I'm lower light with moving objects (my kids that go a million miles an hour). I'd say with the exception of S7 this is probably the best 'point and shoot' I've used on a phone

What do you consider early models just have a look at the lg g4 problems across all different models

​Those with serial numbers 505-509. Mine is a 511 and had no problems at all.
As long as you do your research and check the serial number first you should be fine.

How do you find the camera?
I think need to get a grip regarding the LG G4. Yes there are issues with bootloop but that's more common with older models. Anything 511 should be ok. There has been reported cases of 601's but the number is very small indeed. As for the camera it takes great pictures. You can let the phone take care of all the settings in auto mode or if you know about camera's use the manual mode which allows you to pretty much control everything, iso etc. There's also a quick snap feature by when the phone is locked push the volume down button and it will take a picture.

​The camera is excellent especially in low light conditions.

What is the situation if you end up with a serial number which is affected do they replace it . 'them' being LG?
One of my images here. 8 second exposure ISO 50.

I take a lot of night time pics because the camera is so good at taking low light.

I'll agree with that. Takes great pictures day or night.
Another example I took last night quickly.
