Comparing video on the Pixel 2 and the iPhone 8 Plus

I’ve had the chance to do a little outdoor video work with the new Pixel 2 and this phone has a very nice video camera built into it. The crowning achievement is the combination OIS and EIS they have going on, both of which work together to deliver the best stabilized video I think I’ve ever seen on anything handheld. But does it win the video war? Not quite.

How much extra space does the iPhone X’s screen get you?

I’m not going to pretend to be the ultimate authority on this, but I do make an app that benefits from vertical screen real estate so I threw it in the simulator on the iPhone SE, 8, 8 Plus, and X. Here are the results:

4k 60fps and 1080p 240fps video from the iPhone 8 Plus

If you were wondering what footage looks like from the iPhone 8 Plus’s new camera, below are a few examples I took on a walk around town last week. I did do a little color correction on some of these to make the colors pop a little more, but no other edits have been made.

Beginning to test iPhone 8 Plus charging speeds

I’m preparing a week of serious testing of the many ways you can charge the iPhone 8 Plus. I have 4 different power bricks and 2 wireless chargers at my disposal, all of which will be used to charge the iPhone. I am only testing speed and nothing else. If you are morally opposed to using a charging pad or if you think “wireless charging” is a misnomer, then keep on walking, I will not be covering that here.
