Pixel 2 vs. Pixel 3 Camera Comparison! – SAME Camera Performance?

How good is the new Pixel 3 camera? Well, I just did a comparison between a Pixel 2 vs. Pixel 3 cameras and the results are very interesting. It seems that most of the improvements on Pixel 3 back camera is from better software processing but I do not see much difference in the camera sensor/lens. Eventually, you should be able to get all new Pixel 3 camera features on your Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 with a modded APK.

Galaxy Note 9 Camera 4K Cinematic Camera Test!

Here’s a quick Galaxy Note 9 4K cinematic camera test! It seems like the Galaxy Note 9 like to overexpose but other than that, seems like pretty good cameras especially the telephoto camera seems sharper and better images than the LG V40.  As far as exposure, I feel like the LG V40 does a TON better in auto mode.  Also, the controls for manual mode(Pro mode) on the Galaxy Note 9 is hard to use as the dials are a bit finicky.  At times, I have to really try to register my fingers correctly or the dials just simply don’t work and another reason I just don’t use manual controls on the Galaxy Note 9.  I used auto mostly which works quite fine but like I said, I had to manually adjust the exposure down to get the proper exposure.

LG V40 4K Cinematic Camera Test! [AMAZING Wide-Angle/Telephoto]

In this video, I take the LG V40’s 3 back cameras to the edge of the world to test out its normal, wide-angle, and telephoto cameras. It turns out the wide-angle and telephoto cameras can be VERY USEFUL in situations like mine at the edge of a cliff. Enjoy and don’t forget to hit the thumbs up/subscribe if you enjoy the video, thx! NOTE: Please watch in 1440P or 4K if possible, YouTube rendering is horrible and you may otherwise see artifacts(that I don’t see in my original video).

LG V40 Low Light 4K Camera Demo!

Here’s a quick video I put together using LG V40 camera in 4K!  Now, because a lot of the shots were in super low-light, I did have to apply some noise-reduction in post using Neat Video but still, you can get some decent shots with the LG V40 in low-light using the manual video mode and noise-reduction processing.

LG V40 Unboxing & First Look!

About a week back, LG invited me to their event in San Francisco for LG V40 unboxing and first look at their latest flagship.  The LG V40 is the world’s first smartphone with 5 cameras(each with a different angle) featuring normal, wide-angle, and 2X telephoto camera on the back along with normal and wide-angle cameras on the front.  We have reached an era where more cameras may help consumers ditch their heavy DSLR/mirrorless cameras.

Xiaomi Mi8 Review! – Best Budget Smartphone I Ever Bought, WOW!

Here’s my full review of the Xiaomi Mi8. In my opinion, this is the best budget smartphone I have ever bought and perhaps the best smartphone under $450. It’s got the latest Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB of RAM(or 8GB if you go for the 128GB model), 6.21-inch Super AMOLED screen(that’s bright as any Samsung/LG), fast performance, dual-SIM, and have killer camera(keeps up to Pixel 2 in both daylight/low-light).  If you want to save a few bucks this year on a smartphone that pretty much does everything a flagship does, this is it!  Of course, Pocophone could be even better, I should have full unboxing/review of that also.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Unboxing!

I recently ordered Xiaomi Mi 8 due to the affordability of this Android smartphone as the official price is $421, which is even cheaper than OnePlus 6 by a full $100.  Now, this is probably the cheapest smartphone you can buy that has the latest Snapdragon 845 processor.   While manufacturers like Samsung are raising their prices steadily every year, it seemed to me that perhaps cheaper alternatives like the Mi 8 could be very good.
