    I learned a great deal about the Note 8, which I own but haven't figured out how to use fully. I subscribed based on how useful this video was. Thanks!

    How can I control the video frame rates? Example I want to record a video at 24fps only and 120fps. How can I possibly do this?

    Mics are great but the video is cloudy . The Note 8 Camera is trash . The rear camera hunt for focus also .

    Hi Brian, thanks for the videos on the Note 8….I could not have asked for anything more. I am having second thoughts about purchasing the Note 8 for vlogging. Thanks again. You are super cool.

    Very informative, thank you. I'm interested in Note 8 or the iPhone X. If you were to pick which one do you think has a better stabilizer (when it comes to the front camera) for videos? I have/had an iPhone for over 9 years and I'm finally ready to switch to the Note 8. But I'm curious to hear your opinion, which one would be a better mobile vlogging device ?

    Great review. I'm currently on an iPhone 6s plus, but thinking about going back to android.. specifically the note 8. I have a lot of friends telling me not to get it and go for the galaxy s8 pls.. my question for you is how is it editing photos on it with the pen? I too have big hands and it drives me crazy even with a plus size phone for editing. also always great to come across a fellow Connecticut Native. thanks in advance!

    Try the LG V30! Unless you need a good front facing (selfie) camera..

    Brian, i like " world his sharing expenrie" that was the meaning of book, and was i think making good movie "video" today is the fastest way to do it :)))).
    now v30 😉 i think its a tremendous hardware, way easyer than g7x on your colt (mean pocket as atach on leg has a gun) .
    but again, my s7 edge have decent front face cam, i did not understand why i had so lagy image…

    I think you nailed the review perfectly Brian. Overall it appears to be a pretty good solution but with a few shortcomings. Switched from Apple to Android a couple of years ago, but to be honest now I'm more invested in video I'm seriously considering moving back if only for the plethora of options available on the iPhones. Still loving my Canon M6 though and totally agree on the Canon color science. 🙂👍📸

    Is the Note 8 the best smartphone for vlogging? Do you think point-and-shoots are being phased out by camera phone capabilities?

    Also – I know I misspelled 'stabilization' and it will haunt me forever.
