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 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.
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.
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.
In this video, I take the LG V30 in cine video mode & the Mavic Pro 4K for a quick trip around Mussel Rock, Daly City, California where I live. All shots were done with LG V30 except for drone shots that were done with Mavic Pro. *Note – Please watch in 1440P or 4K as YouTube rendering is horrible.
In this HighOnAndroid SOT(Screen-On-Time) Test, we do our usual SOT battery test in a controlled environment continuously playing my unboxing playlist until the phones run out of battery. The results are actually mind-blowing since Samsung has always won out in the past.
In my recent trip to Las Vegas, I took a few clips of the Luxor hotel (where I was staying) and put together a quick 4K cinematic test. The results weren’t too shabby. The lighting at Luxor hotel is terrible but it was a great test to do a low-light test. Most of my clips actually have noise in the original clips as there was simply not enough lights in the pyramid. I HAD to use some type of noise reduction program and fortunately I had Neat Video plugin for Adobe Premiere which basically gets rid of noise.
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.
About 20 years ago, I stumbled onto Pacifica, California, which is a small coastal city about 10 miles south of San Francisco. Ever since then, I’ve really enjoyed playing golf and even fishing at the Pacifica Pier for crabs. I would drive 45 minutes just to check out Pacifica every weekend. Well, 6 years ago, I ended up buying my ocean-view dream house here and Pacifica is one of the best cities to live in the world in my opinion.
