    Casey Neistat, who does have a relationship with Samsung, reviewed the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8+ side by side; performance does mirror what I found when comparing my Galaxy S8+ to my iPhone 8+. Samsung leans cooler while the iPhone leans warmer.

    Note 8 recorded audio is better in his comparison.



    Good vid.

    The better audio definitely goes to the Note 8. But the colors pop more with the iPhone 8 and have more contrast.

    Hmmm, wonder why on this video the Note 8 didn't look so good, but on SuperSaf the Note 8 was better. I like the way this guy did the video. Pretty funny in some things.

    The Note 8 looks more natural, and the iPhone 8 Plus more saturated. Easy for me to tell, cause I live in NY. But Galaxy and iPhones used to have the opposite difference.

    Around 3:10 is my peeve about iPhones, slightly out of focus on that turn, and the same with the other turns in his video, which is common. The Note 8 stays in focus damn near all times.

    My peeve about the Note 8, even if when recording at the same fps as my iPhone 7 Plus, the results never look like it. Recording from iPhones just seem like it's a higher fps than Samsung phones. But I only notice this when moving, not when idle.

    When idle, the 8 Plus seems just like my 7 Plus. It's a little too soft for my taste which IMO cheapens the resolution look when viewing on a monitor or TV display. The Note 8 looks sharper/crisp and does HD resolution justice when viewing on a larger display.

    5:26.. the 8 Plus looked better in that sunlight(sunset?), almost like a cinema effect. But with the Slo-Mo test later on in the same sunlight, it actually made the quality worst vs the Note 8.

    Basically, in certain random conditions, either phone records better, with both having the usual cons.

    Can't agree. NYC is vibrant and warm with a slight dinginess to it. No where near as cool as the Note 8 makes it.

    Casey does some great video work. I've lost hours on his channel.

    He did a Note 8 preview that's pretty cool as well.

    I've been to New York and know the note 8 looked more realistic in colors for that area.

    think the 8 plus has the slight edge for me but it's very close

    I could live with either’s video results but the the iPhone audio is awful. I might chalk it up to the mic possibly being partially obscured by Casey’s homemade contraption but IIRC, Supersaf’s results concerning audio were the same.

    That’s pretty awful.

    The IPhone records in mono and the Note records in stereo.

    Naw, the colors are saturated. I see the signs and streets everyday.

    LMAO—my iPhone’s autocorrect clearly shows its mind is in the gutter. ;)

    And go ahead and start talking to that target of your affection about video quality on flagship smartphones and that’s all the contraception you’ll need. :p

    Doesn't the Note have a setting where you can make things look natural or saturated? Or does that setting not pertain to video?

    ROFL that's no lie man, I've literally experienced my gf noticing that I'm watching some phone review on the sofa and suddenly I feel a shift in the direction the evening is going.....

    1080p 240fps on iPhone vs 720p 120fps on Note 8.

    In Pro Mode, you can adjust White Balance, Auto Focus, Shutter Speed(for brightness), and Exposure while recording. But you can't control the Shutter or Exposure manually together(for whatever reason). The ISO and Presets color schemes are set for good once recording, that you have to adjust before tapping the record button.

    Took these pics today in while traveling in Manhattan on auto mode(Note 8), the color is spot on accurate, although the pics in general are slightly brighter. Sometimes at night, I would have to put it in Pro mode to curb the brightness if I want a more realistic look of darkness.

    Maybe the lack of contraception is why the iPhone got Mono.

    Samsung need to stop listening to blind fanboys. The colors are too flat this year while the iP8+ is too oversaturated. A user selectable color profile toggle for somewhere inbetween would be ideal like the Lumix colors.
