  1. at 5:56 you see the shadows of the two smartphones. You hold the iPhone in the left hand and the Pixel in the right hand. No mechanical bridge between them. So they will never shake in the same manner. You simply cannot compare them that way. Indeed the Pixel seems to have the better stabilization (checked with other videos as well) but not so extremely as it seems here. And: 60fps will reduce the image instability but only the iphone offers this for 4k videos. I see some advantages for the Pixel 2 but also for the iPhone. Every user may choose his favorite ..

  2. So I've seen every video on YouTube that does an audio test, and my verdict is that basically on the 2 XL there is something wrong with the mixing of the audio recording. It's almost like there's a high pass and a low pass filter on the recordings because it cuts out a lot of the mid range sounds, which results in a "tinny" sound kind of like you're in a small room and the sound is bouncing off the walls. There's also kind of a clicking sound at times. My guess is that this is an error in mixing either the trim or gain. When gain is turned up a lot it causes things farther away to sound louder, but with more white noise and echo'y sounds and can cut out some of those mid-range sounds. When trim is turned up it just makes everything louder but can distort the audio in many different ways. I would assume one of these is just turned up too loud because the 2 XL always seems to be louder in the audio recording department, which actually does not mean that it's better… at all. This all seems to be software based so hopefully they will give us some settings to mess around with or fix the audio mixing in an upcoming update.
