In our last camera comparison, Nexus 6P killed Galaxy S7 Edge and HTC 10 in low-light, thus becoming the king of low-light photos in the smartphone world. Even now, I carry my Nexus 6P just for taking those crispy photos in the dark, it’s definitely still more useful than any other smartphone I have ever owned.
In this low-light camera shootout, we took on the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs. Nexus 6P vs. HTC 10 at the local street market in Thailand.
Perhaps the best low-light camera on a smartphone before the Galaxy S7 launch was the Nexus 6P, which boasts a whopping 1.55 microns sensor size to give you excellent details in low light. In this test, we took up the Galaxy S7 versus the Nexus 6P, comparing both videos and photos to see which one had better low light performance.
In this comparison, we will be comparing the Huawei Mate 8 versus the Galaxy Note 5 cameras. Since Galaxy Note 5 is one of the best cameras on a smartphone, I thought this would be a good test. For test location, I chose my local beach near sunset since low light is where you can really tell the difference between cameras.
LG V10 has been announced and is it better than the Galaxy Note 5? Let’s find out!
First, LG V10 and Note 5 both have 1440P screens. While the LG V10 has IPS LCD, the Note 5 has AMOLED screen. Of course, don’t forget LG V10 comes with a secondary screen on top of the phone while the Note 5 comes with a pressure-sensitive screen that allows for super accurate writing/drawing with its S-Pen. In terms of what you get, notifications/shortcuts versus life-like notebook, the Note 5 certainly wins in the display category nevermind AMOLED screens are about 20-30% brighter than IPS LCD.
So, you are wondering whether to buy the LG V10 or the Nexus 6P?
First, LG V10 and Nexus 6P both feature 5.7-inch 1440P screen. While the LG V10 features IPS LCD, the Nexus 6P features AMOLED screen. The screen on AMOLED screens are brighter than IPS but for normal usage, both should be pretty good for vibrance, contrast, and clarity. The LG V10 has a secondary screen on top of the main screen for notifications and shortcuts which is similar to the one found on S6 Edge Plus. For the screen, I would have to call it a draw between these two bad boys since one is brighter and the other has a “mini-Me” screen.
Today, we will look at the specs and price of Nexus 6P versus the Moto X Pure!
First, both Nexus 6P and Moto X Pure have 1440P 2560×1440 resolution screens. The Nexus 6P will use AMOLED technology similar to the Note 5 while the Moto X Pure has an IPS TFT LCD screen. In terms of viewing angles, the AMOLED screens are much better and have brighter screens. Also, AMOLED screens are much more energy efficient so the Nexus 6P should have a much better screen. In real life usage, it’s probably not a huge deal but Nexus 6P wins in display category.
In today’s video, we will be comparing the cameras of the OnePlus Two vs. LG G4 and the Galaxy S6. Since the LG G4 and Galaxy S6 are the two best cameras on the market, this should show you real world performance differences between the OnePlus Two and best of the market right now. And since Note 5 has the same camera as the Galaxy S6, you can assume the results of S6 are nearly identical for Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus.
