OnePlus 3T HQ Mode vs. Pixel HDR ON Mode Camera Comparison! [Low-Light]

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.

OnePlus 3T vs. Pixel Camera Low-Light Comparison!

In this smartphone comparison, we take up the latest OnePlus 3T vs. Pixel XL in a camera low-light shootout.   While the OnePlus 3T performed worse in HDR mode in comparison to the Pixel (also in HDR On mode), its HQ (special mode for low-light) performed beautifully.  In fact, OnePlus 3T outperformed the Pixel XL in terms of amount of noise.  While we will have to dig further for full analysis, the OnePlus 3T impresses with its HQ mode that could help you take better photos with less noise at night.

Pixel Camera 4K Cinematic Test!

To really see what Google’s new Pixel smartphones can do, I took it out for a test drive in full 4K.

The results?

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.

Pixel XL vs S7 Edge vs Nexus 6P 4K Camera Video Stabilization Comparison!

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.

VLOG #1 w/ LG V20 Camera!

The other day I realized that the best way to test a smartphone camera is to really try it out in real life.  So, here’s my first VLOG using LG V20 camera, using the 4 different camera angles on the phone.  Also, I’ve included some slow-motion footage using the slow-motion mode and also speeding up photos taken with the burst mode.

LG G5 Camera 4K Cinematic Test!

It’s always fun to make some 4K cinematic videos with new smartphones and today I decided to make one in Thailand since the scene is so different.  What I realized by making this video with the LG G5 is that there are some wide-angle shots you can really get creative with.

As I was making this video, I was able to instantly switch between the regular camera and the wide-angle instantly, which is a plus since you can get two angles in one shot.  Of course, I think Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are still a tad better but if you include the fact LG G5 has wide-angle, this may be the most fun camera to shoot with.

Nexus 6P KILLS Galaxy S7 Edge in Camera Dynamic Range Test!

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?
