Apple iPhone 7 vs Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs LG V20: 4K video stabilization comparison
posted by Victor H. / Oct 11, 2016, 9:34 AM
Apple's iPhone 7 features an improved camera system with optical image stabilization (OIS) in addition to Apple's excellent digital stabilization, so we were curious to see whether it managed to record smoother and more stable video than some of the best-rated camera phones on the market right now.
Galaxy S7 Edge and the LG V20. The Galaxy S7 Edge features a 12-megapixel camera that has found a loyal following and many people appreciate the quality out of that shooter. The real highlight of Samsung's system is a new Dual Pixel focusing system that is currently the fastest on the market and works for both still images and videos.The two phones that we have chosen for a pair of 1v1 stabilization comparisons are the Samsung
On the other hand, there is the LG V20 that continues on LG's great camera traditions. It features a 16-megapixel main rear camera along with a secondary, super wide angle camera also on the back. It also features optical stabilization, but its special sauce is nifty manual controls for both image stills and video.
So with all this in mind, we were curious to test the video stabilization of all these phones in real-life conditions. Which one does best? It's up to you to decide, we provide the factual evidence to support your case right below.

The video was much better on the S7 overall which is obvious given the optics. I can't believe the video quality is so poor on the iPhone.

Judgement out- iPhone 7 has the best 4k video stabilization, with v20 and s7 having a tie at second place.

Your eyes must be synchronized with the wonky video of the iPhone 7 to come to that conclusion!

Not a very scientific test but I would rate them in this order: V20 > iPhone 7 > Galaxy S7 Edge

I don't know about others but the 4k video from iphone 7 seemed the best stabilised thus far. And it also had the most true-to-life colours as far as I can tell. Does anybody else completely agree with me too?

The iPhone 7 lost focus alot in this 4K video, and with a jittering mess. Sorry, but the i7 isn't the best stabilized - did you watch the video?
