In my recent trip to Las Vegas, I took a few clips of the Luxor hotel (where I was staying) and put together a quick 4K cinematic test. The results weren’t too shabby. The lighting at Luxor hotel is terrible but it was a great test to do a low-light test. Most of my clips actually have noise in the original clips as there was simply not enough lights in the pyramid. I HAD to use some type of noise reduction program and fortunately I had Neat Video plugin for Adobe Premiere which basically gets rid of noise.

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 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.
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 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.
In this extreme low light camera test, we take on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs. LG G5 vs. HTC 10 taking it around the busy night streets in Nimmanhaemin district of Chiang Mai, Thailand.
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.
The other I was over at Cliff House in San Francisco near Sunset. I took three shots in low-light (near darkness) using my Galaxy S5, OnePlus One, and LG G3.
