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.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
In this comparison, we will be comparing the Huawei Mate 8 versus the Galaxy Note 5 cameras. Since Galaxy Note 5 is one of the best cameras on a smartphone, I thought this would be a good test. For test location, I chose my local beach near sunset since low light is where you can really tell the difference between cameras.
