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 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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
