We have been impressed by the 4K video capture from the Xperia Z2, despite some occasional overheating issues. Most new Android flagships feature 4K video recording and one of the latest smartphones to include 4K is the LG G3. Btekt took to the streets of London to compare the 4K video capture of both handsets.
The video comparison shows how well each phone does on colour, audio, exposure shifting, focus and movement. Btekt preferred the digital stabilisation of the Xperia Z2 against the optical stabilisation of the LG G3. It’s also interesting to note that LG appears to compress its 4K video file sizes much more than Sony.
You can see the comparison video below, as well as the stand alone samples from each phone. If you want to download the raw files, click here for the Xperia Z2 sample and here for the LG G3. Check out the videos below and let us know which handset you think has the edge when it comes to 4K video.
