Video quality - 4K/30 vs 1080/30 vs 1080p/60

Recommended Posts

Has anyone compared the quality of video shot by the Pro1 at 4K 30 fps vs 1080p 30 fps, when displayed on a screen that can actually show 4K resolution?  A friend of mine says that he seems to see lower quality on his Galaxy S9 when shooting at 4K/30 than he does with 1080p/30.

And as for 1080p/60, I've read reports of Pixel 2 users who say that mode produces lower quality for some reason.

Here is one example of someone who showed lower quality in 1080p/60 than 1080p/30:  https://forums.androidcentral.com/google-pixel-2-pixel-2-xl/854224-pixel-2-xl-video-quality-1080p-60fps-shocking.html

If other phones have these issues (especially the Pixel 2, sharing the same camera as the Pro1), I'm curious if some discrepancies might be possible on the Pro1 too.

I got a 4K 43" display, so should be ideal to test that, would have to make some suitable video first though...

4K looks clearly better, here 2 x 2s trimmed videos

e.g. very visible at the finer twigs of the tree top left...

(Also Included originals, plus half an hour later 120 HFR and 120 HSR variants of FHD)

Thanks for checking.  On this laptop, I only have 1080p, and it is difficult to test.  I guess I could load 2 windows side by side, but pressing start on each at the same time would be hard.  If you *really* wanted to makes something special, you could put those into one split screen video with the resolution and fps stamped on each side. 😉

Did you try 1080p/60?  Oh wait.  I just saw the end part.  120 HFR and 120 HSR?  So it can do 120 fps on 1080p, not just 60?

Nope not 60, only 120. Not sure if the snapdragon app can do 60. And using a different app might not give fair results.

...And too lazy to mess with the split thing, but if you open a video in VLC with repeat set, and then Alt Tab to the folder, and open the next, it will play ABABAB.... so compares of the three FHD are fairly easy even on a FHD display. 😇
