Best Android Video Camera

Update: As of February 2017, the LG V20 still provides the best overall video experience. The Pixel is in a close second place.

Best overall

LG V20

See at T-Mobile See at AT&T See at Verizon See at B&H

The LG V20 builds on its predecessor's vision of offering a fantastic imaging experience — and that goes for both still shots and video. Right from the start the V20 stands out because it offers you both a standard and wide-angle lens, giving you unique shooting options — you can even switch between the two in the same video if you want.

Beyond that, you're getting the highest quality available — 4K shooting and HDR video are included here. And if you keep it locked to 1080p, you get the V20's advanced electronic image stabilization to smooth out otherwise-shaky video when you're on the move. No matter how you record, you're getting the best possible audio here as well, with mics that can record the loudest noise of any phone out there.

The biggest feature for video junkies is the Manual video mode, which lets you tweak any setting you can imagine for some pro-level stuff if you want to go all-out and mount the V20 on a tripod rig.

Bottom line: For the most video options and the best possible quality, the LG V20 is the phone you want.

One more thing: The LG V20 also offers some pretty impressive picture capabilities — you don't have to give up much photo quality for all of these video features.

Why the LG V20 is the best

When it comes to recording video, the LG V20 really has it all. Not only does it work well for the basics like just tapping record and watching whatever's in front of you unfold, but it can also go far beyond that with manual controls and advanced features.

It's an excellent all-around video camera without any compromises.

For the basics, the V20 offers 4K video recording as well as HDR, and when you shoot in the standard 1080p resolution you get LG's most advanced electronic image stabilization (in combination with the hardware OIS) to smooth out video when you're moving around. It's quick to start capturing and video looks great. You also get your choice of a standard or wide-angle lens, which can offer interesting shooting styles that you don't get from any other phone.

And what really makes the LG V20 stand out is its Manual video mode. This mode has everything you want, and a bunch of stuff that even the pros won't need to touch. You can change your shutter speed, ISO, focal distance, bitrate and more. You also get hi-fi audio recording from the built-in mics, which can handle even the loudest concerts or sporting events that you want to capture.

The LG V20 is an excellent all-around video camera without any compromises, and it's also paired with some great photo capabilities to boot. If you need a phone that does great video, the V20 is your choice.

Best stabilization

Google Pixel

Though the V20 still takes our top spot because of its vast number of manual controls, the Google Pixel is a close second thanks to its amazing electronic image stabilization. Rather than using OIS (optical image stabilization) to physically smooth out the lens movement, Google's software reads the Pixel's various sensors to adjust and stabilize the picture completely in software.

The results are amazing, to the point where video shot on the Pixel looks like it's being stabilized by a tripod even when they're shot by hand. The video stabilization works automatically, even when shooting in 4K resolution. Beyond the stabilization, the Pixel can also shoot slow-motion video at up to 240 fps, which is extremely impressive.

Bottom line: For the smoothest possible video without any additional accessories, the Google Pixel is the best choice.

One more thing: For the exact same video experience in a larger size (with a higher price), consider the 5.5-inch Pixel XL.

Best for simplicity

Samsung Galaxy S7

See at AT&T See at Sprint See at T-Mobile See at Verizon

The Galaxy S7 is one of our favorite overall cameras, and for many of the same reasons it's a runner-up here as a video camera pick. The Galaxy S7 has a great sensor and lens that can handle 4K and HDR video, as well as electronically stabilized 1080p video. It's amazingly quick to start up and get to your recording, and has lots of built-in shooting modes for features like slow-mo and timelapse.

The Galaxy S7 falls to number two on this list because it doesn't offer the manual shooting offerings of the LG V20, nor does it have the same level of electronic stabilization or the audio recording capabilities that the top pick here does. That doesn't mean the Galaxy S7 isn't a great video camera — it just means it isn't the absolute best. If you're looking for the best combination of both pictures and video, the Galaxy S7 is still worth considering.

Bottom line: The Galaxy S7 offers all of the best video features you want, but doesn't have the more advanced shooting modes and audio recording of the V20.

One more thing: The Galaxy S7 is a bit too small for some people, so if you want the same video capabilities in a larger 5.5-inch display, consider the Galaxy S7 edge.

Conclusion

For the best possible video recording, from quick shots to long planned-out movies, the LG V20 has everything you need. It's a great phone for photos, too, making it a complete package.

Everything you need to know about the AT&T Unlimited plan

39

A complete breakdown of the AT&T Unlimited plan so you know exactly what you get if you switch.

In the United States, there are a lot of companies that can get you and your phone online, but most people use one of the four biggest: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. Choosing between them can be difficult. Your first priority should be what service works best in the places you spend your time. It's not worth saving $10 a month if the service is bad. Once you have that sorted, you can look at what each company has to offer and the prices they charge for it.

More: Which unlimited plan should you buy?

Let's take a look at the AT&T Unlimited plan to see what they can give you and what it will cost.

Note: The details of this plan are current as of February 20, 2017.

AT&T Unlimited plan details

  • Unlimited talk, text, and data
  • Unlimited talk and text to Canada and Mexico
  • Advanced messaging between compatible phones on the AT&T network
  • Unlimited talk, text, and data in Canada and Mexico with free Roam North America Feature (if more than 50% of use is outside the U.S. the plan can be terminated)
  • Unlimited music and video streaming with optional Stream Saver for less data use

AT&T's definition of Unlimited Data means that after you use 22 GB in a single month, your service can be slowed down if you're in a congested area. You'll hear the word throttled used here but you need to know that it's only a temporary deprioritization of your data connection when you're in a busy area. It may not happen at all depending on how many other customers are using the same towers.

Advanced Messaging features are only between two capable phones using the AT&T network in standard domestic coverage areas. A limit of 10MB is applied for any attachments. Standard text messaging has a 1MB limit for attachments.

Users who activate the free Roam North America feature need to use their phone in the domestic coverage area (U.S, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin islands) the majority of the time. If 50% or more of your use in a billing period is outside of domestic coverage, your service can be terminated.

AT&T makes it clear up-front about what devices are eligible and exactly how you can use the service. Clarity is great and we appreciate it.

You can use any phone that's compatible with AT&T's network. If you bring your own phone you'll pay a $25 one-time activation fee which is added to your first bill. You can also finance a phone through AT&T and the monthly cost will vary depending on which phone you choose. The AT&T Unlimited plan does not include tax and all the other assorted fees in the price.

This plan does not include mobile hotspots (except connected cars), Wireless Home Phone, Wireless Home Phone and Internet, laptops, Timex devices, and ZTE Spro 2 projectors. Users with any of those devices should contact an AT&T representative.

Additional lines can be added to an AT&T Unlimited plan. Every line has the same benefits outlined above and the $25 dollar fee applies to each. Here is a pricing breakdown.

  • One line of service on an AT&T Unlimited plan is $100
  • Two lines of service for $140
  • Three lines of service for $180
  • Four lines is $180 (The 4th device is free via a $40 bill credit on or after the second month)

AT&T Unlimited Plan add-ons

You can add a tablet or connected car to your AT&T Unlimited plan for the standard $40 monthly fee or through the AT&T 1GB Tablet plan. This plan offers 1GB of data for your tablet for $10 per month, with overages at $15 per Gigabyte. You can add a wearable (Timex wearables are not eligible) to your plan for $10 a month. You can also add a feature phone or messaging phone to your account for $25 per month.

Secondary perks

AT&T offers a plethora of services and apps to use them. Services include AT&T Drive Mode, AT&T Tablet messaging, AT&T Locker and more. You'll find these apps and plenty more at Google Play.

Last but not least, AT&T also offers services tailored to business owners. Business Messenger, Global IP Client and more make it easier to merge your physical office with your virtual office. You'll find the apps in Google Play and you can get more information by calling 800.331.0500 or visiting an AT&T store.

The LG V20 is just $499.99 at B&H Photo Video right now

42

Here's a great deal on a great phone.

In our comparison between the LG V20 and Huawei Mate 9, I said both phones are fairly comparable in terms of performance, while the V20 has the edge in the camera department and the Mate 9 tops the battery tests. But my conclusion was that, if you are buying the phone outright, the $599.99 Mate 9 is the way to go, since the V20 costs around $200 more.

But not today: the unlocked LG V20 is down to $499.99 at B&H Photo Video right now, which is an excellent price for a great phone. Specifically, this is the Titan (silver) unlocked model compatible with both GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile, and CDMA networks like Verizon and Sprint. Good deal!

The V20 may be the last great phone released with a removable battery, so if that's your thing, head to the source link!

Everything you need to know about the T-Mobile ONE unlimited plan

99

A complete breakdown of T-Mobile's ONE plan and everything else you can get when you sign up for service from Big Magenta.

In the United States, there are a lot of companies that can get you and your phone online, but most people use one of the four biggest: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon. Choosing between them can be difficult. Your first priority should be what service works best in the places you spend your time. It's not worth saving $10 a month if the service is bad. Once you have that sorted, you can look at what each company has to offer and the prices they charge for it.

More: Which unlimited plan should you buy?

Let's take a look at T-Mobile to see what they can give you and what it will cost.

Note: The details of this plan are current as of February 20, 2017.

T-Mobile ONE plan details

  • Unlimited talk, text, and data with 200MB of roaming data
  • Unlimited talk, text, and data in Canada and Mexico
  • One hour of free Gogo in-flight Wi-Fi and unlimited texting on enabled flights
  • Unlimited data and texting in over 140 locations at 2x speed (264kbps) (limited time offer)
  • Unlimited music and HD video streaming (limited time offer, applies only in the U.S.)
  • 10GB high-speed mobile hotspot use (limited time offer)

T-Mobile's definition of Unlimited Data means that after you use 28 GB in a single month, your service can be slowed down if you're in a congested area. You'll hear the word throttled used here but you need to know that it's only a temporary deprioritization of your data connection when you're in a busy area. It may not happen at all depending on how many other customers are using the same towers.

You can use any phone that's compatible with T-Mobile's network. If you bring your own phone you'll pay a $20 one-time fee for a SIM starter kit. You can also finance a phone through T-Mobile and the monthly cost will vary depending on which phone you choose. T-Mobile ONE plans also include tax and all the other assorted fees in the price. Your monthly bill will be exactly what the plan costs.

Additional lines can be added to a T-Mobile ONE plan. Every line has the same benefits outlined above and the $20 SIM starter kit fee applies to each, though they go on sale regularly and it's not unheard of to get the starter kit fees waived if you talk to a representative. Here is a pricing breakdown.

  • One line of service on a T-Mobile ONE plan is $70
  • Two lines of service for $100
  • Three lines of service for $140
  • Four lines is $160 and each additional line adds $20 to the total

T-Mobile ONE Plan add-ons

You can add a tablet to your T-Mobile ONE plan for the standard $20 monthly fee. You can add a wearable to your T-Mobile ONE plan for $5 a month. Wearable devices are limited to 512kbps data speeds.

T-Mobile also offers two Plus add-ons for people who want a few extras:

The $5 monthly T-Mobile ONE Plus add-on includes everything from the standard ONE plan plus the following:

  • Unlimited in-flight data on all Gogo-enabled flights
  • T-Mobile Visual Voicemail
  • T-Mobile Name ID

The $25 T-Mobile ONE Plus International add-on includes everything from the ONE Plus plan and adds the following:

  • Unlimited international calling to landlines in over 70 countries and mobile numbers in more than 30 countries
  • Unlimited high-speed mobile hotspot

You do not have to pay for the $5 Plus add-on if you're buying the $25 Plus add-on. These prices are per line.

Secondary perks

T-Mobile also offers other special promotions on top of what you're paying for. These vary from free applications that support their services to free devices (through bill credits) after a certain amount of monthly payments. Some of these perks can change regularly, but as of February 2017, here is what T-Mobile is offering.

  • $150 prepaid Visa card (per line) when you switch to a T-Mobile ONE plan from another carrier
  • 11.2% cash back via Prepaid MasterCard on any phone you buy from T-Mobile after 6-8 weeks
  • Get an LG G Pad X 8.0 or Samsung Galaxy Tab E for free (via 24 monthly bill credits)
  • Get an ALCATEL LinkZone wireless hotspot for free (via 24 monthly bill credits)
  • "Smartpicks" are full-featured smartphones you can finance for $5 per month (24 months at 0% interest)

T-Mobile also has long-standing extras, including apps for Visual Voicemail, T-Mobile content transfer, T-Mobile's DIGITS, and an excellent account management application. You can find all of T-Mobile's apps on Google Play.

Last but not least is T-Mobile Tuesdays. Each week you can get things like food or movie tickets for free and have a chance to win "top-shelf prizes and epic experiences from the coolest brands around" without buying anything. T-Mobile Tuesdays is a very popular promotion and it is available for any T-Mobile customer.

Huawei Mate 9 vs. LG V20: As good as it gets

42

Two completely different phones with very similar outcomes.

I have a problem. See, there are two phones in front of me, and they're both very good. I've literally been switching between them every day to get a sense of their strengths and weaknesses, and have been assiduously noting the differences to get a sense of what a large "phablet" flagship should and shouldn't do.

These two phones are the Huawei Mate 9, which recently arrived in the U.S., and the LG V20, which debuted at the tail end of 2016. Despite the obvious similarities — they're both big phones with great specs, etc. — I have been left with a strangely bitter taste in my mouth, as I can't decide which one I like better.

Best Unlocked Phone

Update February 2017: Google's Pixel still remains our top unlocked choice, and we've added a caveat to our Galaxy S7 recommendation denoting its age.

Best overall

Google Pixel

See at Google See at Verizon

When you're buying an unlocked phone, our recommendation is unchanged from our overall best Android phone pick: it's the Google Pixel. Google's first own-branded phone is absolutely hit in just about every way, from its understated hardware design to its lightning fast performance, full-day battery life and of course its top-of-the-line camera.

The Pixel does everything simply faster than the competition, and does so while integrating with all of Google's excellent services. It's also going to be the most up-to-date in terms of software, getting monthly security updates and also being at the front of the line for big platform jumps.

You'll pay for the privilege, but if you want the slickest and cleanest Android phone that you can buy unlocked and pick your carrier(s) later, the Pixel is the way to go.

Bottom line: For the fastest, simplest and best-supported experience, you can't go wrong with Google's own phone.

One more thing: You can opt for the 5.5-inch Pixel XL if you want more screen to work with and longer battery life.
