In this 4K cinematic camera test, I took the Pixel 2 on a trip to the beach with my daughter Peony to see how well it worked during sunset hours. To my surprise, the Pixel 2 has an “amazing” stabilization using its OIS/EIS combo. Now, the original Pixel also had OIS/EIS combo but wasn’t as good as the Pixel 2. With better processor and better electronic stabilization algorithms, the Pixel 2 behaves like it is on a gimbal during good lighting. Now, I did find stability does not work as well in low light and I assume this is due to the fact EIS(Electronic Image Stabilization) works by cropping out the mistakes.
For those of you who need extra battery for your Samsung Galaxy Note 8, you may want to consider a battery case like ZeroLemon SlimPower, which comes with 5500mAh capacity, enough to recharge your Note 8 about 1.5 times. The ZeroLemon SlimPower is rather thick and bulky, this isn’t for everyone but for those who absolutely need extra 1-2 days of battery life.
Probably the biggest question of the week regarding Pixel 2, how much has it improved over last year’s original Pixel? I wanted to see for myself if Pixel 2 indeed has gotten better since last year’s Pixel, which is also an excellent low-light shooter.
In this camera comparison, we compare the Google Pixel 2 vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs. LG V30 in a low-light and see which one performs best in 4K video recordings including stability tests.
In this low-light camera comparison, we take up the Google Pixel 2 vs. Galaxy Note 8 vs LG V30 in challenging low-light situations where a lot bright background lights are involved. To conduct this test, all phones were set to 100% “auto” mode.
With purchase of a Samsung Galaxy Note 8, SamsungPromotions.com offers a Samsung 360 4K camera or Samsung Wireless Charging Convertible plus 128GB EvoPlus microSD card. Since I got the 360 camera already(for free from attending the Galaxy S8 launch event earlier this year), I opted to go with the latter.
In this video, I review the Chamberlain Smart Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener, which I replaced my 50-year old dying garage door opener and also made my garage “smart”. Now I can open and close my garage door from anywhere in the world with an Android app! And yes, if you forget to close your garage door, you can even have it automatically close!
In this quick test, we compare the brightness of LG V30(pre-production) vs. Galaxy Note 8 in indoors and outdoors.
In this EXTREME camera stability test, we take the all-new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs. LG V30(pre-production unit) on my Suzuki GSX-R600 motorcycle to find out which one can handle motorcycle shakes better. Both were shot in 4K in auto mode.
