It is increasingly common to see video comparisons between smartphones, especially with regard to camera quality or performance. Some channels, however, take this to a completely different level by performing tests that in some cases even compromise the integrity of the devices involved, such as those involving boiling water or the like.
Thinking of testing the resistance of the flagships Galaxy S8 Plus, iPhone 7 Plus and G6 (although not so extreme), the channel Чудо техники has published an interesting video on YouTube, where it takes the certification of resistance against water damage and Dust from the devices to see how they do in terms of image stabilization while recording videos.
Usually, this type of test is done with the user walking while recording or at most putting the gadgets on a bike, but how do they do when they are fully exposed in a moving car? To have a good basis for comparison, a GoPro Hero 5 was also placed on top of the vehicle, since the camera is made for much more extreme situations and so it could capture the test without problems.
As it turned out, LG’s G6 was apparently the one who suffered most from the shaking of the vehicle’s movement, making it appear at times that they were walking on a totally bumpy road, which was not the case. Soon after we have the iPhone 7 Plus, which is generally highly praised in this regard but still ended up delivering something less satisfactory than its frame indicates.
The big winner of the test was seen as the Galaxy S8 Plus, which for most of the time managed to keep the recording more stable than its rivals, thus proving to be a great option for those who want to record more dynamic moments. It is worth noting, however, that even he has not even come close to what was achieved with GoPro Hero 5, demonstrating that smartphones still have much to evolve to overcome products made especially for more extreme scenarios.
And you, how did you like the test? Would you dare pin your smartphone on the car for a few laps around? Leave us your comment below!
