OnePlus 8 Pro the best slow motion phone today?

OnePlus 8 Pro the best slow motion

There has been an absence of real world samples of the OnePlus 8 in slow motion due to mainly of the hardware not reaching testers fast enough and the COVID 19 pandemic slowing things even further.  However, we have found a video that shows the OnePlus 8 Pro being compared to the Samsung S20 Ultra and the iPhone 11 Pro in the 240fps slow motion mode.

It is clear that the OnePlus 8 has a more processed image with higher saturation and apparent detail retention. It is also notable that dynamic range seems to be a winner in the OnePlus as well. The quality offered by the new handsets from the Chinese company is really astounding considering more expensive phones simply cannot seem to fully compete here. While more samples are needed the footage below shows a good enough view of what you can expect. → Continue Reading Full Post ←

OnePlus 8 Slow Motion is pegged at 480fps!

OnePlus 8 Slow Motion

The Chinese company from Shenzhen OnePlus has always been regarded as a pusher and advancer of cutting edge technology at a price that is more affordable than most premium brands. The good news has always been that the lower price has not really made it a premium-less experience, actually, many of their phones are so advanced and feature-rich than many flagships from Samsung and Apple have trouble catching up in features like the 120Hz display refresh of the 7T last year.

Since the OnePlus 6 and 6T slow motion in 2018 made inroads by allowing 480fps 720p recording for an unheard of in the phone space “3.75 sec” recording time it has been one of the best slow motion phones to own.  They repeated that feat with the OnePlus 7 and 7T in 2019. Now in 2020 after many pushed dates for announcement due to the pandemic situation they have now unveiled the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro flagship phones.  They are premium and advanced that compete head to head with the best out there. They also include 480fps and from the looks of the sample, it seems to be increased in quality with much less pixelation. → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Galaxy S20 Slow Motion will improve 960fps !

Galaxy S20 Slow Motion

The recently announced Galaxy S20 phone line has been making some waves with impressive specs especially related to the camera modules.  As always we are only interested here in the high speed video specs here at HSC “not even the new 8k video spec” and the new phones are an improvement over the S10 and Note 10 lines.  However, it is important to note that not all S20s will share the same slow motion specs and that is what this post is about.

You may think that the S20 Ultra 5G will be the easy choice here but it is hardly as straight forward as that.  The amount of technology packed in the Ultra phone along with four camera modules and one of them at over 100MP means they prioritized photo resolution over video shooting in their sensor selection. The Ultra will not natively support the 960fps spec but default to only 480fps. → Continue Reading Full Post ←
