In this camera comparison, we take up the latest $300 Xiaomi Pocophone vs. Xiaomi Mi 8 vs. Samsung Galaxy S9 to see if the cheaper $300 Pocophone can live up to flagship cameras. For this camera comparison, I used many of the challenging low-light and street light situations that tests out the camera’s sensor and processing abilities.
In this camera comparison, we compare the portrait mode of the front camera of Samsung Galaxy S9 vs. LG G7 vs. Pixel 2 vs. OnePlus 6 vs. Xiaomi Mi 8. For this test, we are comparing which phone does the best in terms of mirroring a real DSLR, specifically looking for the camera with better subject separation from the background, background blurring, and also image quality. Now, this test was done on a pretty bright but cloudy day in good lighting conditions. In low-light conditions, the results may differ vastly as the more expensive phones have better low-light performance. We will do another comparison for low-light but this comparison is for those of you who take lots of selfies in good lighting conditions.
Is the Note 9 overpriced? Let’s go ahead and take a quick look at price comparison between the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 versus the Galaxy S9+.
Here’s a quick Galaxy S9 vs. OnePlus 6 240fps 1080P slow motion comparison, which do you think is better? I personally felt like the OnePlus 6 did slightly better in most situations. Especially outdoors, the OnePlus 6 seems to have sharper images along with much better dynamic range(better levels of brightness and darkness). These were taken both in 240fps 1080P on the Galaxy S9 and OnePlus 6, do let me know which one you like most!
In this low-light camera comparison, we take up the latest OnePlus 6 against the reigning king Pixel 2 and Samsung Galaxy S9. Which has the best low-light camera?
Over the week I borrowed my friend’s iPhone X and was able to do some low-light camera comparisons with photos and videos. These were all taken in auto mode for both phones and also 4K 30fps auto mode for videos. The result? Galaxy S9’s F1.5 is indeed impressive. In low-light, there is clear advantage to using Galaxy S9’s F1.5 over iPhone X’s F1.8.
Galaxy S9 Plus camera has F1.5 which probably is best shown by doing a video comparison. In this video comparison, we take up the Galaxy S9 Plus again Pixel 2 XL and see which one does better in low-light and near darkness. Of course, the results are definitely impressive as the S9 Plus kills Pixel 2 XL in terms of clarity, level of noise, and exposure. Galaxy smartphones have always had one of the best(if not the best) performance when it comes to the video category and the Galaxy S9/S9+ has definitely stepped up another level with its F1.5 over last year’s F1.7. Now, I am actually not sure how much of improvement that is so we will do another test on that soon. Stay tuned!
In my last camera comparison between the Galaxy S9+ vs. Pixel 2 XL, a lot of people complained that I was using F1.5 Pro mode during daylight scenes and it probably wasn’t fair since many of the shots from S9+ came out a bit overexposed as the HDR is not enabled in Pro mode. While F1.5 Pro mode is certainly not useful at all times especially when there is too much light, my initial test was to test out amount of bokeh with F1.5, not so much with HDR.
