Today was probably the heaviest rain to hit California coast this year and I thought it would be a great idea to test out the microphones of latest flagship smartphone in extreme storm weather with 30+MPH wind. It seems that in this extreme weather, most smartphones have trouble, which one you think did the best?

In this camera comparison, we compare the OnePlus 3T in “HQ” mode (noise reduction) to Pixel XL’s “HDR ON” mode, which gives the best low-light photos on each phones and I also explain why this is for those of you who haven’t tested both phones yet. In the end, the Google Pixel clearly wins out as overall winner of best low-light camera but the OnePlus 3T comes very close in certain situations and it is very impressive what the 3T can do.
In our latest HighOnAndroid SOT test, we take up the new LG V20 vs. Huawei P9.
The results? Pretty fascinating as the LG V20 got 6 hours 20 minutes while Huawei P9 finished close at 6 hours and 14 minutes.
In this comparison, we take up the Google Pixel smartphone vs. LG V20 in low-light camera comparison.
For the first test, we used 4K video recording mode for both phones on “auto” mode and the results are interesting as LG V20 outperformed the Pixel in modest to very dim situations. Although Pixel was able to display more details in complete darkness, the image was filled with noise and basically unusable.
In this test, we compare the Pixel vs. Galaxy S7 Edge 4K video camera in low-light and see which one has less noise in different shades of low-light.
The results? Very interesting indeed. Overall the Galaxy S7 Edge had much less noise in low-light situations while the Pixel was able to get more details.
Here’s a quick 4K camera video stabilization comparison between the new Google Pixel XL vs. Galaxy S7 Edge vs. Nexus 6P.
I am actually impressed at how well the Gyro EIS on Pixel XL did, WOW. Although Pixel XL had some stutter issues when moving the phone in an aggressive way, overall the Pixel XL had much better stabilization than the Galaxy S7 Edge, which I feel like “was” the king of 4K video stabilization.
In our last camera comparison, Nexus 6P killed Galaxy S7 Edge and HTC 10 in low-light, thus becoming the king of low-light photos in the smartphone world. Even now, I carry my Nexus 6P just for taking those crispy photos in the dark, it’s definitely still more useful than any other smartphone I have ever owned.
Here’s a quick run down of specs comparison between the new Google Pixel XL smartphone vs. Galaxy S7 Edge.
First, they both have 5.5-inch AMOLED screens with identical 534 PPI.
Second, Pixel XL has a F2.0 12.3MP 1.55 microns while S7 Edge has vs. F1.7 12MP 1.4 microns back camera. Performance should be nearly same and Pixel XL may excel more at low-light due to its larger sensor and HDR+ technology.
In our latest underwater test, we took the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 through various underwater tests including unlocking phone, using IRIS underwater, browsing the web, typing underwater, watching YouTube videos under water, playing games, recording videos underwater, taking selfies underwater, and using different apps underwater. The result was pretty amazing.
In this low-light camera shootout, we took on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs. Nexus 6P vs. HTC 10 at the local street market in Thailand.
Apparently, the HTC 10 still has the same focusing problems in low light we noticed in our last camera test. The Nexus 6P came out as surprising winner in low-light being able to capture higher dynamic range keeping the highlights from blowing out, which happened almost on every photo for the Galaxy S7 Edge and HTC 10. However, we did notice that the Galaxy S7 Edge and HTC 10 did a lot better when a subject was involved while the Nexus 6P kept focusing on the background.
