On my recent trip to Hawaii, I broke two of my smartphones while using them in sea salt water to take videos of corals while snorkeling, I broke my Galaxy S9 Plus and my Pixel 2 XL. In this video, I show you what happens if your smartphone seal breaks in sea salt water and also how to minimize damage from salt water corrosion by disassembling both my S9 Plus and Pixel 2 XL. I’ve taken all my waterproof phones(with IP67 or IP68 rating) diving in swimming pools and even in 100+ degree temp spa many times but I have NEVER actually broken a smartphone from water until last week.

HighOnAndroid brings you exclusive RAW footage from Galaxy S8 Plus! I brought my OTG USB flash drive and was able to get RAW 4K footage and front camera footage from the launch event in New York City. This is raw footage that was uploaded straight to YouTube without any editing whatsoever.
LG G6 is IP68 certified and in this freeze test, we freeze the phone for near 24 hours to see if it can survive to see how well its waterproofing works. We have seen that the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge survived our freeze test before so if LG G6 is just as good, it should be able to easily survive this test.
In this second VLOG, we test out the bokeh abilities of the LG V20’s back camera, stability using its OIS and with a Feiyu G4 Pro gimbal, and also maximize the microphone abilities using its directional mode along with wind filter.
The other day I realized that the best way to test a smartphone camera is to really try it out in real life. So, here’s my first VLOG using LG V20 camera, using the 4 different camera angles on the phone. Also, I’ve included some slow-motion footage using the slow-motion mode and also speeding up photos taken with the burst mode.
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?
Here’s Galaxy S7 & S7 Edge 4K cinematic video test, this was shot at the Fine Palace of Arts in San Francisco. I used both Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge to record this video but both S7 and S7 Edge has identical cameras. (This whole video was recorded using the S7 & S7 Edge!)
In this video, we test the Galaxy S7’s waterproof IP68 rating vs. LG Washing Machine for a full cycle of 45 minutes in water. Will the Galaxy S7 survive the beating? FYI, I almost had a heart attack making this video so please thumbs up thx!
