LG G7 ThinQ Concert Recording - Fantastic -- Sprint Product Ambassadors

I used the previous LG V30 for several band concerts when my 25 year old AKG Stereo mic broke and found it to be as good, if not better than my professional microphone.  When I got the G7 I couldn't wait to try it out -- but it was in the middle of the summer and no band concerts . . . .

So I waited and waited - and last week we had our first outdoor marching band show of the year!  I dug out the G7 and went up to the press booth at the stadium and recorded the show.  How'd it do?  Absolutely amazing!  Superior bass response, excellent stereo separation, amazing color capture.  I dumped the completely unedited untouched video to YouTube - put on some headphones and check it out!



So, the LG G7 ThinQ is just as good if not better than the V30 for live recording!  You can compare it to the $400 Sennheiser MK440 professional microphone on a Canon T3i here (also a straight dump to YouTube, no editing).  The Sennheiser has more gain, but less bass response and less stereo separation.  I had a wind blocker on the MK440 so you don't get the initial wind noise you hear on the LG.




Thanks for watching and enjoy your LG Phone!

2011 Ducati Diavel Key Fob Battery

Battery died in the proximity sensor key fob for the wife's Ducati Diavel. We (I) being cheap, order some generic batteries. Never worked. Used the PIN code to ride it around for a while, then heard a tip - use *Energizer* brand batteries in the key fob and it will work.

Well guess what? It worked. One $3 Energizer CR2032 battery later and the 2011 Ducati Diavel starts just like it's supposed to!

LG G7 ThinQ Live Sound

Shot two videos of the marching show at halftime - one on the T3i with the Senheiser mic and one on the LG G7 ThinQ phone. Listening to the LG right now in the car a *whoa *! Seriously solid sound. Will have to wait till I get home to upload the video but another home run for LG!

Samsung Note 9 vs Samsung Note 8 Side by Side

Unboxed the new Samsung Note 9 one day before launch.  Hopefully I won't get sued!

Take a look at the Note 9 vs the Note 8 side by side!

Samsung Note 8 beside Samsung Note 9 size comparison
Note 8 beside the Note 9, front side.

Not any real physical difference in size.  Haven't activated it or done anything yet.  But it's still the same (large) size as the Note 8!

MotoZ3 Play and MotoMods - Sprint Product Ambassadors

A very nice feature of the Moto Z3 Play is the support for MotoMods - these are magnetic attachable extras, from batteries to speakers, even a 10x zoom camera from Hasselblad!  So how do they work?

Quite simple actually - line up the gold studs on the phone with the studs on the mod and the magnets will pull them together easily.  Watch and see!



We'll check out the Hasselblad camera more later - but MotoMods are an exciting and fun part of the new Moto Z3 Play!
