I've just come back from a nice hiking trip where I took lots of photos that looked good on the LG G6 screen.

I have the image quality settings at 4:3 (13MP) and this particular image is 4.4MB (original here).

Yes, it's normal. LG camera software does it.

You can fix it with Google Camera ported to LG G6. It may lack some functions compared to LG camera app.
