In this quick tutorial, I am going to show you how to install the latest Android O Preview, Google’s next iteration of Android operating system, quick and easily using fastboot and your computer. You can use Windows, Mac, Linux, or even Chromebook to install the new Android O firmware image files. For Mac or Linux, please substitute the code I outline below instead of the one I used in the video tutorial.
Category: Nexus 6P
In our latest HighOnAndroid SOT Test, we take up Google’s latest Pixel XL and Pixel versus last year’s Nexus 6P and also the Galaxy S7 Edge.
The results are very interesting as the Pixel XL and Pixel prove themselves as one of the best in having longest battery, just behind the Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7, current kings of HighOnAndroid SOT tests.
In this camera low light comparison, I compare the Pixel XL vs. Pixel vs. Nexus 6P. Since some of you suggested Pixel performs best on HDR On, this is the sequel to my first camera comparison. All phones were set to HDR On. And I’ve even included a regular Pixel (which has the same camera s Pixel XL) just to make sure that I don’t have a bad unit.
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.
In my last camera low-light shootout, the Nexus 6P came out on top of all 2016 flagship smartphones like the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge and HTC 10 and I wanted to find out exactly what’s going on. Was it the big sensor size? Perhaps good camera software? Or was it simply because better HDR mode? In order to satisfy my thirst to find out why Nexus 6P outperformed new phones, I did a dynamic range test.What is dynamic range?
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.
Google has announced Daydream VR coming to next Android N a few weeks back and it should be coming soon to everyone but if you want to check out the beta Daydream VR demo, you can do it if you have a Nexus device with Android N.
Now, currently the only app it has is a beta painting app that is a watered-down version of Google Tilt Brush but with this app you can experience Daydream VR along with a 3D controller (using a 2nd phone as emulating controller).
Perhaps the best low-light camera on a smartphone before the Galaxy S7 launch was the Nexus 6P, which boasts a whopping 1.55 microns sensor size to give you excellent details in low light. In this test, we took up the Galaxy S7 versus the Nexus 6P, comparing both videos and photos to see which one had better low light performance.
After using the Nexus 6P for more than 2 weeks, if you asked me, “Is the Nexus 6P any good Max?”
I am gonna save you a bunch of time and money by telling you Nexus 6P isn’t good at all. In fact you don’t even have to watch the rest of this video. The Nexus 6P isn’t good, it’s f**king great.
In this HighOnAndroid SOT (Screen-On-Time) Battery Test, we take the Galaxy Note 5 against the LG V10 and Nexus 6P.
With this test, we set the brightness of all the phones to the same brightness using LUX light meter (set to 300). Then we put all the phones in airplane mode with all the phones on same WiFi network.
