Here’s an underwater snorkeling test with the LG G6. Yes IP68 rating is good enough to snorkel with it in sea salt water, just keep your phone no more than 5 feet underwater and you should be fine. Also rinse your phone off with fresh water after as salt left on the phone can make your seals degrade if you leave it. This isn’t my first time snorkeling with a waterproof phone, I used Galaxy S5 a few years back in Thailand, the phone still works even years later and still waterproof, you can check it out here.
In this 4K camera test, I used the Samsung Galaxy S9+ for all shots except for airborne shots which I used the DJI Mavic Pro. I felt like this is very good combination for those of you who want to take some 4K videos on the go. Although I do have nicer cameras like the GH5 and A7rii, I wanted to see if I can get some high-quality shots with my smartphone. I also used the DJI Osmo Mobile gimbal to stabilize the Galaxy S9+, which comes in very handy also.
In this video, I show you how to make DIY dome glass tempered glass for your Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, Note 8, S8, S8 Plus, and you can also use this method on pretty much any smartphone to apply loca glue with tempered glass so your touch sensitivity and glare stays the same as if you didn’t have tempered glass on. I got this idea from the Dome Glass screen protector, which is good but I thought you could just do it yourself and save some money, especially if you have more than one phone.
For those of you thinking about buying a tempered glass protector for your Samsung Galaxy curved-screen phone like the Galaxy S9, S9 Plus, Note 8, S8, or S8 Plus, you may want to know a few things before getting one. Now, many of tempered glass being sold on Amazon (or retail stores) currently are pretty much the same, just branded differently. Since my last DO NOT BUY REVIEW on tempered glass for Galaxy S7 Edge, tempered glass have evolved and they are very, very easy to install these days. Most of these new tempered glass come with an installation kit that allows you to easily install them within minutes.
Here’s my first impressions of the new LG G7 ThinQ, I had some hands-on time at the LG G7 event in San Francisco. I’ve also included camera low-light test vs. Galaxy S9+ and Pixel 2 XL, 1000-nit brightness test, Boombox speaker test, demo of how to remove/hide the notch, and comparison vs. Galaxy S9+.
Can you make a 4K cinematic video w/ the Samsung Galaxy S9+ using its new 4K 60fps video recording? In my latest outing to the golf driving range, we find out if the Galaxy S9+ can stand up to some simple panning shots and see if it can add to your next 4K cinematic video by slowing down 60fps to 24 or 30fps.The result? Is 4K 60fps useful?
In today’s video, we take a quick look at Galaxy S9+ 4K 60fps footage slowed down to 24fps to use as slow motion. This is my first slow motion test but footage doesn’t look too bad, might get better results with a bit more sunlight. I should have a 2nd test video uploaded soon!My first impressions on Galaxy S9+ 4K 60fps slow motion?
Here’s how to make great 4K 60fps videos w/ Galaxy S9 Plus and DJI Osmo Mobile gimbal. YouTube adds a lot of artifacts(due to rendering) when viewed with anything less than 4K, so please try to watch the video in at least 1440P or 4K. If you are using Samsung Galaxy device such as S9 or S9 Plus, make sure your display setting is set to 1440P first otherwise you will be limited to 1080P only.
In this video, we take a look at all the stuff YOU MUST DO after buying the Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus to get the most out of your new smartphone. New to Android or Samsung? Watching this video can help you get most out of your phone and also save time! So be sure to check it out and thumbs ups appreciated!
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? Is it the absolutely the best smartphone out in 2018? In terms of overall performance/value, I would like to say so. The Galaxy S9 Plus is Samsung’s latest flagship featuring Snapdragon 845 (or Exynos 9810) processor, 6.2 inch 1440P AMOLED curved screen, 6GB of RAM, 64/128/256GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 12MP F1.5/F2.4 dual back cameras, 8MP F1.7 front camera, stereo speakers, and Iris/Fingerprint/Face scanners for security. Packing a ton of features(as usual), Samsung has launched a beastly smartphone that may well be its best so far.
Here’s Galaxy S9 960fps SUPER slow motion me doing some golf trick shots in happy gilmore style. While the Galaxy S9 super slow motion mode is not perfect as it only auto-captures when things in its square box is moving, it does quite well in capturing super slow motion actions if you don’t have someone else to take the video for you. I only wish the square box could be set to custom locations and it would make it perfect.
