On the shoot at F45, Nick and Kelly had the S10, Google Pixel 3, and the RED HYDROGEN. Learn about Nick and Kelly's thoughts on each device and a few other Android phones you may want to look out for in this video.
- So in this movie we're going to talk about which Android device is right for you. And I want to start off by saying that the phones that we used aren't necessarily the cheapest, but we tried to get phones that we thought would film good video quality. We were hearing really good things about Samsung so we got the S10. We've got the Google Pixel 3 and I got really into this phone actually for it's camera and it's low light abilities with AI, artificial intelligence. And I had super high hopes for the Red Hydrogen phone. Because Red is actually a camera maker and they announced this awesome phone that would be a holographic phone, have video, have a bunch of different networks, as well as stereoscopic 3D. I got really excited about the time, two years ago. It just so happens that this is the most disappointing phone to me. And what I mean by that is the video quality compared to other Android devices is good, it's just not great, especially compared to that which is offered by Samsung and the Google now. For what it is right now, I wouldn't necessarily recommend it. And for our shoot at F45, I pretty much just used it as a time lapse device, 'cause I didn't necessarily like how it was handling the exposure in some instances. And with that said, I still have high hopes with that phone. Because there's a little bit of a shake up and there's still a lot of potentials with the potential modularness of the Red, as well what they're doing which is probably going to be changing the camera. Now how'd you find the Samsung 10, that's what you primarily shot with. - Yeah, the Samsung, the S10, so this is a fairly new release from Samsung. I was really nicely surprised by the S10. So mind you, we have mixed light in here. So we have very bright windows. We have fluorescent lights in other parts of the gym. And it could go from these extremely bright surfaces and very smoothy adjust that iris and come back up on somebody. And it did it in a very filmic, beautiful way, much better in fact than I believe the iPhone does. And so I was very, very surprised by how well it did. I also love the fact that it's got three lenses. So it's got a wide, it's got a normal focal length, and then it's got a doubler, all right, so it'll double your focal length so you've got a telephoto. Nice, nice phone. - I think Samsung has some amazing still cameras, not to mention video cameras that they're producing right now. When I saw the images on this, the Samsung S10, they were very vibrant, actually even more vibrant than the Google Pixel which is pretty vibrant, but just a little bit more flat. Now it comes to the Google Pixel. This only has one lens, but it's extremely attractive for the reason of it's low-light capabilities. If you haven't heard of Night Sight, it's just unreal. You can go into a dark room and take a still picture and that really got me interested in this phone. The video quality did not disappoint. It was a little bit flatter in terms of its quality, but in terms of me handling that actual video, I felt really at ease. The built-in stabilization, especially with the iOgrapher was just fantastic. And I was really happy with the video quality and the modes and I felt that the actual file transfer went by pretty smoothly as well. - And keep this in mind too, that if it's a little bit of a flatter image, and you want to grade the image, that can be a positive. - [Taller Man] There's a lot of people on board, such as Moment lenses as well as iOgrapher who are making things for the phone, just like the Samsung 10. So it really does have our interest. - And that is an interesting thing to think about, because most people are coming to me and saying, "Hey, what kind of camera should I be buying "for my family, everything else." And I'm like, "Don't, don't get a point and shoot anymore. "Actually start relying on your smartphone, "because they are really kind of, in my opinion, "beginning to replace point and shoot cameras." - So there you have it, the difference between the Android devices that we used for our shoot at F45.
