In this review of LG V20, we will be comparing its core features against other flagships like the Pixel XL, S7 Edge, Nexus 6P, and Note 5.
First, LG V20 is a 5.7-inch phablet smartphone with 1440P IPS LCD w/ secondary screen, 2 back cameras (One F1.8 16MP and One 8MP F2.4 wide-angle), 1 front wide-angle camera (that also crops in), Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, removable back cover (made from aircraft-grade aluminum), 3200mAh removable battery, IR blaster, micro-SD card slot, and an active noise-cancellation microphone. LG V20 also comes with a quad-DAC with a more powerful amplifier that’s capable of powering headphones (that usually require amps).
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.
To really see what Google’s new Pixel smartphones can do, I took it out for a test drive in full 4K.
I am pretty damn impressed at what the Pixel can do for 4K video recording in addition to its video stabilization powers. The EIS/gyro on the Pixel seems to work really well with gimbals and panning shots. Exposure was a bit off at times but for most shots, it did an excellent job.
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.
For those of you wondering whether Google can fix the HALO/lens flare effect that is caused on Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, you may want to know that this isn’t really fixable by software.
Taking a closer look, you will notice that the halo effect can be reproduced while using the video camera of the Pixel and Pixel XL, meaning this cannot be permanently fixed using software.
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.
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.
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.
