Pixel? How many pixels does this phone have?
The Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones are Google’s first attempt at a premium flagship, Google has even changed its name from Nexus to Pixel, clearly distinguishing its new line of smartphones. Both Pixel & Pixel XL feature 12.3MP back camera, 8MP front camera, back fingerprint sensor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, 4gigs of RAM, USB Type C, 3.5mm headphone jack, storage of 32GB or 128GB, and virtual reality through its new Daydream VR headset. The only real difference between Pixel and Pixel XL are its display sizes and battery capacity. The Pixel has 5-inch 1080P vs. Pixel XL’s 5.5-inch 1440P and Pixel’s 2770mAh vs. XL’s 3450mAh battery size.
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).
Okay, let’s go ahead and unbox this bad boy. Inside the box, you will find the Google Pixel XL, wow. This looks like a solid phone. There is a pouch with a bunch of manuals and SIM ejection tool. Pixel uses USB Type C so it comes with a USB Type C cable for connecting to your computer or charging. There’s also a USB Type C OTG adapter so you can transfer data from other smartphones or use a USB flash drive with it.
After using the Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and Moto Mods for over a month now, I can give you some reasons why you would want to buy this modular smartphone.
First, Moto Z and Z Force have up-to-date specs such as Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 gigs of RAM, micro SD card slot, and 5.5-inch 2560×1440 AMOLED screen. The specs are definitely up to date but it isn’t what make Moto Z special. What makes Moto Z line special is its Moto Mods, which include the projector module, JBL speaker module, battery module, and even Hasselblad Zoom Camera module.
Many of you know I love gimbals and if you are looking for the best gimbal for your Android smartphone, you may want to check out the Feiyu G4 Pro.
The Feiyu G4 Pro is a lightweight yet powerful gimbal that comes with all of the professional gimbal features you would want. I really love the fact that it has a standard tripod mount screw so I can screw it to any of my tripods.
In my recent unboxing video of a $20 tempered glass on my Galaxy S7 Edge, I learned a few things about them and why you should not use them unless you absolutely can live with its flaws.
Now, this tempered glass is branded as many different tempered glass online Peyou, GPEL, iCarez, etc…etc… They are all basically made by the same company and you need to know that all of them have these flaws.
For those of you who are thinking about getting the LG G5, here’s the top 8reasons why you should buy LG G5.
First and foremost, if you want to have two back cameras, one primary and other super wide-angle, the LG G5 is definitely the way to go as it offers you a wide-angle camera usually found on much bigger DSLRs/mirrorless cameras. The primary camera on LG G5 already keeps up with cameras on other flagships like the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge and by having additional wide-angle camera, you will be able to take photos otherwise not possible (such as taking a wide-angle shot from the top of Great Wall in China).
I want to start this review out by focusing on what I like most then pointing out problems and things you may want to consider when buying them.What’s Great about the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge?
First of all, both Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge feature IP68 water resistant rating which is probably the coolest feature. In fact, what’s amazing is that these phones can survive harshest conditions, even surviving a full wash cycle in my LG washer and actually being froze in my freezer, you can check out those videos on my channel. Okay, maybe this isn’t a feature you may be interested in but if it is, may be you live in Seattle where it rains often or you like to play with water often, this could potentially be the reason to buy a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge. Think of all the possibilities, you can use your phone in the rain, record videos underwater, watch youtube videos in the shower, etc…etc…
I didn’t get to attend Samsung’s Galaxy S7 launch event due to my flight being delayed and being stuck in Dublin, Ireland but I did spend a few hours playing with Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge today at MWC and yes, that made up for all the trouble.
First, let’s talk about the design. Design on the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge hasn’t changed much from last year’s S6 and S6 Edge. In fact, the only difference you can tell with naked eye is the fact that this year’s S7 and S7 Edge both come with curved back instead of being flat. This makes the phones a lot easier to hold and boy, I noticed the difference right away the first time I held it. It’s more ergonomic and naturally allows you to grip the phone. Other than that, you will notice the S7 has barely a camera hump compared to a huge one from last year. There’s also always-on screen just like the LG G5. Those damn Sam Spies at LG paid off.
