About 20 years ago, I stumbled onto Pacifica, California, which is a small coastal city about 10 miles south of San Francisco. Ever since then, I’ve really enjoyed playing golf and even fishing at the Pacifica Pier for crabs. I would drive 45 minutes just to check out Pacifica every weekend. Well, 6 years ago, I ended up buying my ocean-view dream house here and Pacifica is one of the best cities to live in the world in my opinion.
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 our latest HighOnAndroid SOT Test, we take up Google’s latest Pixel XL and Pixel versus last year’s Nexus 6P and also the Galaxy S7 Edge.
The results are very interesting as the Pixel XL and Pixel prove themselves as one of the best in having longest battery, just behind the Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7, current kings of HighOnAndroid SOT tests.
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.
To test out the LG V20’s DAC feature, I decided to get one of the best headphones you can buy on earth right now, the Sennheiser HD800S. I figured if LG V20 can power Sennheiser HD800S, it will probably work well with any other headphones.
The results? Simply amazing, Sennheiser HD800S is probably the best headphones I’ve ever owned (I’ve also tried the $50,000 Sennheiser Orpheus headphones at CES 2016) and highly recommend it to anyone who wants a great pair of headphones.
Here’s an extreme test of Galaxy Note 7’s IP68 waterproof design, we put the phone in 100+ degree of hot spa water for an HOUR! Will it blow up?
Many waterproof tests have been done in the past and the Galaxy S7 Edge (which has same waterproof design as Note 7) lived up to freeze tests, but there are no previous waterproof tests involving high temperatures with long hours in water.
In our latest underwater test, we took the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 through various underwater tests including unlocking phone, using IRIS underwater, browsing the web, typing underwater, watching YouTube videos under water, playing games, recording videos underwater, taking selfies underwater, and using different apps underwater. The result was pretty amazing.
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.
