With purchase of a Samsung Galaxy Note 8, SamsungPromotions.com offers a Samsung 360 4K camera or Samsung Wireless Charging Convertible plus 128GB EvoPlus microSD card. Since I got the 360 camera already(for free from attending the Galaxy S8 launch event earlier this year), I opted to go with the latter.
In this video, I review the Chamberlain Smart Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener, which I replaced my 50-year old dying garage door opener and also made my garage “smart”. Now I can open and close my garage door from anywhere in the world with an Android app! And yes, if you forget to close your garage door, you can even have it automatically close!
In this quick test, we compare the brightness of LG V30(pre-production) vs. Galaxy Note 8 in indoors and outdoors.
In this EXTREME camera stability test, we take the all-new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs. LG V30(pre-production unit) on my Suzuki GSX-R600 motorcycle to find out which one can handle motorcycle shakes better. Both were shot in 4K in auto mode.
In this video, I take the Galaxy Note 8 into the nature in my backyard and also take my daughters to Ocean Beach in San Francisco. All shots were in auto-mode hand-held except for the timelapses where I used a tripod. (Timelapses were simply sped-up footage of the video.) Comparing to the older Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, the added 2X zoom camera proved to be very useful in situations where zoom was needed without losing quality. I did make use of the manual mode in certain shots where manual focus was needed plus I didn’t want the ISO or shutter speed to flicker my shots. Overall, the Galaxy Note 8 does have very good 4K video camera that you can use for family videos or even professional-quality videos. Although still one of the best, I prefer the new LG V30 for videos which I feel have a ton better room for cinematic colors along with LOG mode and better manual mode.
In this video, I take the LG V30 in cine video mode & the Mavic Pro 4K for a quick trip around Mussel Rock, Daly City, California where I live. All shots were done with LG V30 except for drone shots that were done with Mavic Pro. *Note – Please watch in 1440P or 4K as YouTube rendering is horrible.
Looking for the “best” USB power bank that is very portable, lightweight, and also supports Quick Charge 3.0?
In this video I show you how to install the latest and greatest Android 8.0 Oreo on your Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, or 5X. Google will push out Android 8.0 Oreo update via OTA(over-the-air) eventually but if you are too impatient to wait or you are on a rooted phone with custom ROM, you can manually install it using Google factory images.
In this HighOnAndroid SOT(Screen-On-Time) Test, we do our usual SOT battery test in a controlled environment continuously playing my unboxing playlist until the phones run out of battery. The results are actually mind-blowing since Samsung has always won out in the past.
In this comparison test of LG V30 vs. Galaxy Note 8, I wanted to test the difference between V30 Cine Video vs. Note 8. For this test, I did a simple grade trying to match V30’s cine video mode.
LG V30 is finally HERE! I got to play with it for almost a week and here’s my first impressions!
I haven’t found a reason to use a tablet for a few years so I haven’t really used them much. But recently, I did find a need for tablet, especially navigating cryptocurrency trading sites, which have a lot of small buttons and options in its desktop version. While I can use my Galaxy S8 Plus(my daily driver) to get my trades done, it was simply not efficient as my desktop computer but I needed something like a tablet that would help me trade on the go. Besides that, I have started also reading e-books and obviously tablet helps with reading a lot more than my phablet. So, I got a new tablet, all for the purposes of getting something done such as trading and reading.
I have been using both the Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus as daily driver for many weeks now and I think it’s a good time to do a review on these latest Samsung smartphones.
Here’s a quick demo of Galaxy S8 hyperlapse/timelapse camera mode. It defaults to 1080P so I upscaled it to 1440P since YouTube compression is horrible, try to watch in 1440P.
