If how we spend our days is always connected, staring at our screens, well that would be how we spend the rest of our lives. You see, as humans, we are vulnerable and our smartphones are engineered to use these vulnerabilities against us. This is why we've intentionally designed a phone to be used as little as possible. It's a phone that encourages you to leave behind your smartphone, to spend that quality time doing the things that you love the most. We call it: Going Light. Almost three years, and 10,000 phones later, to find ourselves asking: "How can we go light more often? How can we go light for good?" Introducing: Light Phone 2. A beautiful matte display, 4G connectivity, and messaging. We are rethinking what an operating system can be. A few essential tools, thoughtfully implemented, and a pleasure to use. Maybe an alarm clock, a ride home, a playlist, or some simple directions. These are tools, not feeds. It's a phone that actually respects you. Light was born as a refreshing alternative to the tech monopolies. We don't want to be made to feel that we're not enough. We believe objects can empower us, it can help us appreciate our lives even more. We are humans, and we're taking back our lives.
hey everyone this is Dom from tech advisor here at in for 2019 in Berlin and I'm here with the new asus ROG or Rog phone to know we see this was announced a month ago so you already know a bit about it but here at IFA Asus has just announced the pricing and release info for Europe so that seemed to me like the perfect excuse to stack it against the first rog phone and see how the two compare and whether you should be looking at an upgrade if you're an existing rog phone user or if you don't own either but you're tempted which wants you to go for let's take a look at the two phones side by side you'll straightaway see that while at first glance they're pretty similar there's actually a big difference the rog phone 2 which is on the right is a lot taller and a little bit thinner not a lot but there's a tiny fractional thinness but it feels thinner because that extra height that's basically because they've gone to a nineteen point five by nine display ratio in line with most of our flagship rather than the kind of stockier boxier thing you'll see on the the first rog phone that's not the only change to the display it's also showed up from ninety Hertz in the first rock phone up to 120 Hertz in the second one still AMOLED still one millisecond response time and still HDR – it's now got hdr 10 bit support so like you're already looking up this is basically one of the best panels you can get on any phone right now the original rog phone had a great panel already but 120hz with one millisecond response and HDR I mean this is the only phone you can buy right now that has a panel like that and it's hard to show on video but that extra response where it just means everything is super smooth and fluid whether the jump from 90 to 120 really makes a massive difference I don't know that's probably gonna be harder to tell where that jump up to 90 is certainly a big deal and that makes both phones very very tempting rest of the design kind of similar we've got the the fan ad on on both right now so that blocks a bit of the back of the phone you can see there there's a very similar aesthetic to the two similar to your camera setup though the specs are different fingerprint sensor you'll see is gone so it's there on the original Rog phone not on the rog phone 2 because it's now in the display otherwise it's got this same sort of angular cut out but you'll just see it's a little less pronounced on the new opponent and like even on it like just unlock that lock that area even on the fan you can see it's changing but there's more space here it's a quiet of fan but still just as powerful they've both got the RGB lighting here built on the fan the fan comes in the box by the way you don't pay extra for that and if you don't have the fan on the the RGB panel on the back of the phone itself lights up obviously the RGB is all customizable all that kind of stuff that's pretty much the same between both inside it's also all change so the original Rog phone Snapdragon 855 very fast to it when it came out the rog phone 2 hasn't just had the upgrade to the 855 it's gone to the 855 plus an extra optimized version the 855 so you're getting more than the year's benefits on top of the eight five five has got another seven percent CPU performance 15 percent GPU performance plus optimizations for a few specific games between this kind of perform even faster in those supported titles like asphalt 9 so you're gonna see like really phenomenal performance that's not even counting the other specs so Ram – 8 gig in the original rog obviously they've gone up 12 gig total overkill storage the original rog phone went up to 512 gigabytes previously Asus announced that the rog phone 2 was also a 512 gigabyte phone we just found out there's an Ultimate Edition that goes up to one terabyte of storage so you could be 855 plus processor like the first phone in the world to have that 12 gigabyte RAM you're not gonna find a phone with more RAM than that terabyte storage you're not gonna point phone with more storage than that then battery original rock phone four thousand milliamp hours rogue front to six thousand milliamp hours again outside of going into the phones made by brands like energizer that are really focused on that kind of thing you just will not find more battery than that in one phone so this is like really phenomenal top spec for what you're getting in terms of those sort of the gaming specific stuff there's been a few tweaks to as I've already mentioned the fans been changed a bit you can also see this an extra bit of RGB here on the updated fan there's also a whole range of other accessories you've got to buy them separately but there's things like be the twin view which gives you a second screen a bit like the LG V50 but more you know optimized for gaming purposes that second screen is also 120hz and comes with its own 5 thousand milliamp hour battery giving you a grand total 11 thousand milliamp hours between the two my favorite is probably the kunai gamepad or kunai I think it's kunai which basically looks like a kind of set of switch joycon controllers so you can use it as a remote controller or you can sort of strap them to the side of the rog phone to turning it into a basically a little mini switch and you know it doesn't feel quite as flawless as a switch then there's a little bit of life delay and using it I found though that may have just been the demo unit here but man like it's great having that access to really solid physical controls if you just want to use the actual phone itself both phones have the air triggers which are the little pressure sensitive sections on here so that when you're holding the phone landscape they basically serve as shoulder buttons if you want to use it to press down one thing you'll find on the new rogue phone is there's some extra sensitivity settings plus there's a new option to sort of slide along rather than just squeeze in so you get a little bit more control over them we'll also see if we go into the game center which has a nice you fancy animation we get a few more options we have specific game profiles we can set there's only one set on this device as you can see but we get more options here things like setting CPU performance or refresh rate per game if we go into the console this is pretty similar to what you've seen before again there's a few more archery options fan speed RGB lighting options that's basically the same between the two but there is one final software thing which is a little bit different which is that if you buy the original road phone you are tied in to this kind of gamer-y system interface which I actually quite liked I get a lot of flack on the channel sometimes they're sort of making fun of like things that have too much for gamer aesthetic I think it kind of works here and I quite like the look at it but if you don't if you buy the rog phone 2 you can switch that off and just switch to the Asus ZenUI which is what they use in their zenfone range it's pretty close to stock Android I can't show you it right now but yeah it's so much more sort of it's less flashy it's more casual it might feel more suitable in a professional environment and then you can switch back to the sort of rog UI when you really want a game when you're in your free time and speaking of the zenfone final thing I did talk about cameras briefly they've had a big upgrade so what we've got in here now is actually the same camera setup you'll find in the zenfone 6 asus's non-gaming flagship for the year so there's a forty eight megapixel main lens and then a wide-angle to support it with Sony's flagship flagship sensor in there powering it all you've got support for 4k video at 60fps a dedicated night mode all that kind of stuff plus then the selfie camera is that a big boost to 24 megapixels so that will be a lot better for selfies but also given the gaming thing if you want to stream as stream pushing yourself while you're gaming also couldn't in the corner it's in a nice bar it's out of the way of your landscape and it will get a nice angle of you for this at the top so yeah I mean I'm normally the kind of person who when we're looking at like year-on-year updates of phones I tend to be a skeptic about operating I tend to say look stick on the old phone if you've got it or if you're looking to find you one go with the old one it's going to be cheaper but I'm not she kind of torn here because they have the same RRP 899 euros so that should mean 799 pounds $899 so that hasn't quite been confirmed just yet if you want to get the terabyte version of the rog phone 2 that will jump up to 1199 euros so 300 euro difference again I assume the same in dollars and pounds that's a big jump probably not worth it for most but if you're happy with the regular 512 model like it's the same price the other one will probably took down a bit just because it's the older one there are so many updates across the board in the rog phone 2 everything like core specs camera design display accessories RGB lights air triggers everything is better than it was before and so it's really hard not to look at the first rog phone as proof of concept and the rog phone 2 as the real deal alright yeah we're here at IFA 2019 we're gonna be shooting more videos out here so like them subscribe stay tuned check out and I cannot wait to get one of these in and shoot an unboxing with it and hopefully do a full review

Remember that phone from last year with the motorized pop-up camera – the Vivo Nex S? Well Vivo is back at it again with another super innovative design, with both a screen on the front and back of their latest flagship. In the box comes with headphones, charger, and a thick bumper case to protect the phone from drops. It's time to see how much thought Vivo put into durability. Let's get started. [Intro] This is the second dual screen phone we've seen. With the Nubia X, switching screens was a carefully calculated, simultaneous double button press. But with this Vivo phone, pressing one power button on the right side of the phone will activate whatever side is facing you much easier. It also has a 3 finger side swipe to switch between the screens on the go, which is as equally easy. So the whole point of a dual screen phone is to one, look cool, but also to get rid of an notches or hole punches in the larger front display. With an additional screen on the back, all selfies can be done with the higher quality rear main cameras, instead of having lower quality front cameras taking up space inside of a notch.
The main camera on this phone has 3 LED lights for better lit pictures. Two of which can activate a circular lunar ring for more even light during pictures or videos. You know, the same circular lights that YouTubers might use during makeup tutorials. I'm going to leave the makeup tutorials to the experts, but a ring light is definitely a cool addition to a cell phone camera. The included case has a solid fit. I always have a case on my personal device, so I'm glad Vivo added some extra protection in the box. Speaking of protection, there is also an included plastic screen protector on the front surface. The guys over at Vivo are getting all the bonus points today. As you know, with my systematic durability test, we check the scratch resistance of the screen with Mohs scale of hardness.
It's a pretty safe bet that if a company isn't advertising sapphire, it's probably going to be tempered glass, which is where we start seeing faint scratches at a level 6, with deeper grooves at a level 7. Vivo was the first manufacturer to come out with an under display fingerprint scanner, and the same technology is here in this phone as well. Underneath the front screen, protected by the front glass, the display shines up onto your fingerprint. And the little sensor underneath the display can tell if it's your finger or not so you can unlock the phone securely.
With two screens, we need double the testing since there's twice as much real estate to cover. Let's scratch test the back. Dbrand should start making clear skins for these dual screen phones. This side as well is covered by a screen protector, which makes sense. Screen protectors not only stop scratches, but also add a cushion layer of impact protection so brittle glass doesn't shatter right away during a drop. This time after testing all the different levels, we still find tempered glass covering the back panel, resulting in scratches at 6, with deeper grooves at a level 7.
The rear design of the Vivo dual screen phone is unique. Instead of a metal lip around the camera lens, the whole circular unit is glass and protrudes just slightly over the top of the rear glass panel. With it's own little screen protector, the circular camera lens is very solidly adhered to the rear panel. Even with some prying from my razor blade, it doesn't want to come off. The back panel, surprisingly, does have it's own earpiece, a bi-directional earpiece speaker shooting out both the front and the back. This will be fun to see from the inside. It's a thin little sliver, especially here on the front side, to minimize the bezels. But the grille can come off on it's own. There isn't much adhesive holding it in place.
It's definitely interesting to see speaker grilles on both sides of the phone. Speaking of sides, the material inside of this dual screen sandwich is metal, the long volume button, and power buttons are both made from metal. The bottom of the phone has a loud speaker and USB-C charging port, along with a dual SIM card tray, with a protective rubber ring around the opening to help keep water out. The Vivo Nex Dual Display doesn't have an official IP rating, but it's good to see some steps were taken. This hole is protected and I'll have to check the other holes from the inside during the teardown.
The far side of the phone is also made from metal, along with the second tower button with Vivo printed on the surface. And what's this? Dost mine eyes deceive me? A headphone jack. You gotta love a phone with all the features. Another interesting design choice is at the edge of the screen on both the front and the back are surrounded by a layer of plastic. Plastic as we know is much softer than metal or glass, so it does provide a nice cushion layer between the hard metal sides and the clear brittle glass. So if it does happen to get dropped, it might not break as easy.
It's a good thing, and not something you would notice at first glance. With the previous dual screen phone I tested, the Nubia X, it had an LCD front panel, while the smaller rear panel was AMOLED. This phone, the Vivo Nex Dual Display, has a larger rear screen than the Nubia at 5.5 inches and it's still a 1080p AMOLED. It's kind of sad when you think that the backup screen on this phone is still higher resolution than Apple's iPhone XR. No permanent marks were left on the display, even after my lighter was in place for 45 seconds. It might be the dual thickness of the clear camera lens glass. But even with all that heat, there is no separation of the rather unique circular lens. There's a 12 megapixel main camera, a 2 megapixel depth sensor, and another 3D camera called TOF for Time of Flight for facial recognition are all back here.
The TOF camera has some pretty cool 3D scanning capabilities. I jumped into the camera app to check it out. It has the standard measure of banana features that a lot of phones have. But it also has this pretty in depth 3D face scanning unlocking thing that Vivo claims is better than Apple's. But I think we can all agree that this is either super creepy or super awesome. Isn't that right, Digital Jerry? [Jerry nods] The front screen is a massive 6.4 inch, no notch, 1080p AMOLED display. This time with different placement of my lighter, and without the dual layers of glass, a white burn mark appeared at about 27 seconds and never did quite recover. And now for the bend test. This phone has no moving parts, just one solid hunk of glass, metal and plastic. And the whole contraption seems very heavy and very solid, with only a slight bend during the flex, but with no creaks, snaps, kinks, or cracks anywhere in the body, even when bent from both directions. I like where things are headed. This whole flagship phone with dual screens, 3D camera, headphone jack, and in-screen fingerprint scanner is still cheaper than Apple's budget iPhone, the XR.
And Vivo's phone comes with double the internal memory. Vivo's got my attention. I'm impressed and I'm excited to see what they come out with next. Hit that subscribe button if you haven't already so we can find out together. And come hang out with me over on Twitter. Thanks a ton for watching. I'll see you around..
Kyocera, a name I haven't heard of in a while, has released a new phone. An extremely rugged smartphone called the Dura Force Pro 2. Kyocera claims this phone has a full sapphire display, but there's only one way to find out for sure. At only $450, this should be interesting. On the back of the phone it says 'Class 1 Division 2' which means this phone can be used in hazardous locations without causing explosions. Gotta love that. Let's get started. [Intro] Right out of the box the phone feels smooth, plastic, almost fluffy compared to the dense glass and metal phones we're used to seeing. It definitely still has that rugged, durable look to it. Let's get started with the scratch test. A phone with real sapphire on the display doesn't come around very often. As we know, these Mohs hardness picks tell the difference between different materials.
Plastic would leave marks at a level 3. Normal glass would scratch at a 6. And sapphire should only start to scratch at level 8. Sapphire has a totally different composition than glass. It's a crystal structure that's actually grown in a lab, and it's hardness level is up there with precious gems and diamonds. An incredibly impressive, expensive and premium material. Taking a look at the level 6 and 7 pick locations where glass normally starts to scratch, we see no marks. The screen of this Dura Force Pro 2 is still flawless. Let's take it up to a level 8. Finally, at a level 8 we start to see some damage. This is exactly where we would expect sapphire to be. It's what we saw on the HTC U Ultra Sapphire edition, as well as the sapphire covered Tissot watches that I've used to explain sapphire in the past.
Kyocera says the camera lens on the back of the phone is sapphire as well. We'll be verifying that in just a second. A level 9 pick, of course, also leaves marks on the crystal, as would diamonds at a level 10, but I'm kind of fresh out of those at the moment. The earpiece up at the top is covered in plastic and can be scratched. The whole phone is designed to handle abuse though and keep working. So superficial damage is kind of irrelevant. There is a 5 megapixel selfie camera under that same sapphire display, so it's definitely protected from scratches.
The thick knobby corners of this phone are made from a softer, slightly grippy plastic. Under the large flap on the side we have our SIM and SD expandable memory slot, and a dedicated camera button below that. This can be programmed to be a Google assistant or another app instead. It's super nice of Kyocera to let us choose how to use our own buttons. Phenomenal idea. I hope Samsung is watching. The bottom of the phone has a huge, watertight ip68 plastic flap covering the USB-C charging port. We have even more plastic along the sides, with another large programmable button on the left side. This button is supposed to be 'push-to-talk', a radio style button, but can also be remapped to literally anything else. I'm a fan. The volume rocker is also made from plastic. And look what we have up here. A headphone jack – instant thumbs up. It's protected with the same watertight flaps that cover the SD card and charging port. This durable smartphone's turning out to be a winner. The power button doubles as a fingerprint scanner. I'll scratch that up to simulate a guy on YouTube who scratches stuff.
But while adding my fingerprint I would get constant 'fingerprint is dirty' messages. Even when it finally did accept my fingerprint, the dirty little fingerprint scanner was not efficient at recognizing my finger, nor would it unlock the screen every time. There are always other ways to unlock your phone of course, but the weaker fingerprint scanner is just something to keep in mind. The back of the Kyocera Dura Force Pro 2 has 4 smooth hard rubber pads on each of the corners. Definitely an added perk for drop protection. Now back to the sapphire. It's a pretty incredible substance. The optically clear stuff used in technology and like on phone screens and camera lenses is lab grown, fabricated in a lab over weeks into a large clear cylinder called a boule.
This massive chunk of sapphire is then bored out and cut up to make watch faces, or smaller bores to make camera lenses. Or sawed into rectangular chunks and polished to make smartphone displays like the one here on the Kyocera. It's a fascinating process that I'd love to show off in real life if anyone over there at Kyocera is watching. The back panel covering the wireless charging pad is plastic. Not all sapphire is created equal. One company, who shall remain nameless, uses an impure version of sapphire…Just kidding, it's Apple.
Apple is using junk sapphire on their camera lenses. You can see here with the piece of sapphire that's covering the normal 13 megapixel camera, and the 8 megapixel wide angle lens (great combo by the way), it does not scratch with a level 6 or 7 Mohs pick. It's only when we reach levels 8 and 9 that the surface of the lens starts to get damaged. This is the good quality sapphire. Apple, on the other hand, has sub-par sapphire lenses on every single one of their iPhones. Those get scratched starting at levels 6 and 7, just like glass would. There's a definite difference in quality. I'm impressed with Kyocera. Their product is behaving as advertised. Imagine that. Like any rugged smartphone, this guy is supposed to work in extreme heat, which might just give us another reason for this burn test. I've been struggling for years trying to justify this one…I mostly just like fire. The 1080p IPS LCD underneath the 5 inch slab of sapphire on the Kyocera Dura Force Pro 2 lasted 30 seconds under the heat from my direct flame. Watch how fast I recovers though.
It's ready for round 2 with zero damage done to the display underneath. Impressive. Now for the bend test. A rugged smartphone with no structure would be rather dumb. Independent third party testing though is really the only way to tell. This rock solid Dura Force Pro 2 has zero flex and passes my durability test. Kyocera has managed to make a durable, rugged phone out of premium materials, and I'm very impressed. It might even very well be the most durable phone of this year.

The Samsung galaxy s 21 series is finally official I’ve had an early first look and here’s everything you need to know what’s up guys saf here on supersaf tv and it looks like pretty much all the leaks and rumors were spot on accurate but uh now we have the official information we can break everything down look at the differences between the devices and hopefully by the end of this video you’ll know which one to go for so as expected we’ve got three new Samsung galaxy s21s there is the s21 the s21 plus and the s21 ultra the s21 is the smallest with a 6.2 inch display the s21 plus has a 6.7 inch display and the s21 ultra the largest with a 6.8 inch display all devices have small bezels with an Infiniti or punch out they all have gorilla glass vectors they all have dynamic amoled displays and they all have a maximum refresh rate of 120 hertz the similarities stop there however the s20 1 and the s21 plus are quite different otherwise compared to the s21 ultra let’s break down all of the differences firstly the brightness the s21 and the s21 plus have a peak brightness of 1300 nits the s21 ultra does have a peak brightness of 1500 nits 1300 is more than good enough but 1500 just means that the s21 ultra will be better to view outdoors the s21 and the s21 plus also have a full hd plus resolution the s21 ultra has a quad hd plus resolution now this is the first time in many years that Samsung has gone back on the resolution on one of their s devices so it might be disappointing for some of you however i think for most people it should be fine if we do go back to last year and take a look at the likes of the s20 series as well as the note 20 ultra all of those although they did have quad hd plus resolution you could only have that resolution at 60 hats as soon as you wanted to switch to that smoother 120 hertz you would drop down to full hd plus resolution and personally speaking on my note 20 ultra which I’ve been using since last year it has been on full hd and it’s been generally absolutely fine so this is going to come down to your personal preference if you do want all the bezel and whistles then the s21 ultra is the one to go for and for the first time on a Samsung device the s21 ultra also can support 120 hertz with quad hd plus resolution so you can have that high resolution with that high refresh rate also the s21 ultra does have the ability to switch between 11 or 120 hertz making it a lot more efficient the s21 and the s21 plus however can only switch between 48 and 120 hertz so although you do have that adaptive refresh rate it’s not going to be as efficient as the s21 ultra and the final difference between the displays is something that you might actually prefer on the s21 and the s21 plus and that’s that they have a flat display whereas the s21 ultra does have some curves on the side now this is something that Samsung has had for quite some time but it looks like they are starting to move away from it i think it’s going to come down to personal preference some people do prefer curved displays some people do prefer flat displays now let’s move on to the design and the build so Samsung has now updated their design and we have the camera modules kind of melting in to the edges of the devices and we do have metal frames across all the devices however there are some key differences in terms of the material the s21 plus and the s21 ultra do have glass panels on the back whereas the s21 standard has a plastic back what Samsung like to call glastic so it’s not going to be as premium as the s21 plus and the s21 ultra again i think this is going to come down to personal preference most people do tend to put their device in a case and if that is the case for you case case for you then i don’t think it’s going to be that much of a big deal because you’re not necessarily going to be feeling that all the time and having used the Samsung galaxy s20 fe for the past few months i can tell you that personally speaking it’s not a big deal for me it might be for you now all three devices do have an ip68 water and dust resistance rating which is always nice to have and they all have a matte finish which I’m a big big fan of in previous years Samsung has usually offered matte as well as glossy backs but this time we have got matte across the board now we’ve got some different color options there’s four color options available for the s21 three color options available for the s21 plus and two color options available for the s21 ultra and the flagship color for the s21 and the s21 plus is the phantom violet which let’s be real let’s just call it the thanos edition perfectly balanced [Music] it looks like there are lots of marvel fans in Samsung’s design team now let’s move over on to the cameras so we do have more differences here the camera module on the s21 ultra is much larger compared to the s21 and the s21 plus that is because it has more cameras initially let’s look at the s21 and the s21 plus they have the same cameras there’s a 10 megapixel selfie camera and then we have a triple rear facing camera setup there’s a 12 megapixel ultra wide camera a 12 megapixel primary camera and then a 64 megapixel telephoto zoom camera which is going to give you three times optical zoom now the camera setup seems very similar to what we had on the s20 series last year but the s21 ultra is really where we have a lot more of the improvements firstly there’s a 40 megapixel selfie camera and on the rear we’ve got quite a few cameras we’ve got four cameras in total as well as a laser autofocus sensor let’s break these cameras down so we’ve got a 12 megapixel ultra wide camera now the key thing here is this camera has dual pixel autofocus which we don’t have on the s21 and the s21 plus and this is going to allow you to also use the ultra wide camera as a macro camera so when you do get to subjects around 10 centimeters or closer then it’s gonna switch to focus and you’ll be able to get some really nice macro shots now this isn’t the gimmicky 2 megapixel macro cameras that we’re talking about this is actually going to be using the 12 megapixel ultra wide camera sensor to focus in closer we’ve seen something like this on the oneplus series as well as a few oppo devices and it’s something that i really really do like we then have the primary 108 megapixel sensor now this is the same size as what we had last year but it is an improved sensor which is supposed to give you three times more dynamic range and it’s also capable of capturing 12-bit raw files it also has optical image stabilization and it’s going to use the laser autofocus sensor to help it focus which was a problem with the s20 so it’s nice that Samsung has improved this and then we have two telephoto cameras there is a three times as well as a 10 times zoom camera both have optical image stabilization as well as dual pixel autofocus now this is a similar setup to what we’ve seen on the Huawei p40 pro plus last year and it just gives you a lot more scope with your zoom you’re not just stuck to one extreme or another Samsung has said that they’ve also improved the zoom so we do have a zoom lock feature which kicks in when you are zooming in at extremes you can zoom all the way up to 100 times which i’m still not too keen on but of course guys we are going to be doing a supersaf style camera comparison as soon as we can definitely let me know in the comments below which device you’d like me to compare the s21 ultra cameras to first and also be sure to subscribe and hit the bell icon if you haven’t already now we’ve also got some improvements for videos so firstly we do have 8k at up to 24 frames a second as we did have last year this is across all the s21 series devices but we now have 4k at 60 frames a second across all of the cameras of the s21 ultra we also do have 4k up to 60 frames a second on most the s21 and the s21 plus his cameras except the telephoto camera the telephoto camera does not have 4k60 that only goes up to 4k 30 frames a second I’m not sure how much of a big deal that’s going to be for most people but it’s nice to see that consistency at least on the s21 ultra there’s also a lot of new software features one of those is directive view which will give you some more advanced features for the cameras and also let you preview the different lenses before you do switch to them we’ve also got single take 2.
Which is going to use multiple cameras to put together a piece for you i personally don’t use this that much myself but we’ll see how much it’s been improved and we also have vlogger view which will let you capture video from the front and the rear facing cameras at the same time now let’s move on to the performance so the s21 series as we’ve seen previously from Samsung will vary depending on your region some reasons we’ll be getting the QUALCOMM snapdragon 888 chipset other regions will be getting Samsung’s exynos 2100 now the 2100 was announced by Samsung a few days ago and it does seem to have lots of improvements compared to last year but we’re gonna have to wait until I’ve got the devices in hand both the UK version and the us version so i can really do more of a comparison for longer term usage make sure you are subscribed to see that as soon as i can get hold of the QUALCOMM version i will be doing lots of tests for storage and ram the s21 and the s21 plus come with eight gigabytes of ram the s21 ultra does come with 12 gigabytes of ram so it is going to be a multitasking beast and for storage we do have 128 and 256 gigabytes across all devices and the s21 ultra does come with a 512 gigabyte version ufs 3. 1 storage but as you may have already heard there is some bad news the s21 series does not have a micro SD card slot rip to the micro SD card slot should we should we have a moment of silence for it no no right so when it comes to the micro sd card slot personally speaking because of the differences of speed based on its 3.1 storage and even some of the fastest micro sd card slots I do see why Samsung has done this but let me know what you think one of the positives that we do have is that Samsung is only going to be charging around 50 pounds more if you do want to go for the 256 gigabyte option so I think that is pretty reasonable if we look at it that way I’m not defending them again let me know what you guys think for software all devices do come with androids 11 out of the box with Samsung’s one ui 3.1 and all of the devices also have a brand new fingerprint sensor it is the QUALCOMM 3d sonic sensor gen 2.
Now this is 1 times larger compared to the previous generation and it’s also 50 faster this is something that I’m really looking forward to i really do like good in-display fingerprint scanners and this improvement is definitely welcomed the s21 plus and the s21 ultra also have ultra wideband technology and this will allow a few things Samsung have talked about using the devices as a digital touchless key for your car there is improved android auto and there’s also integration with smart things from Samsung so you’ll be able to get some smart tags to be able to locate them much more easily the s21 ultra also comes with some unique features which you won’t get on the s21 and the s21 plus firstly we do have hyper fast wi-fi 6e which can give you up to four times faster Wi-Fi speeds and the s21 ultra as you may have already heard does have support for the s pen this is the first time we’ve got s pen supports on a galaxy s device and this isn’t going to be included it’s going to be an accessory that’s sold separately bundled with a case because there is no space in the s21 ultra for the s pen like you have on the note series I’m not sure of the exact pricing as yet for the cases but i really think this is a good move from Samsung because it does bring the s pen which i personally use all the time to the galaxy s series but it is optional so it’s not something that you have to have to have all devices do have stereo speakers and let’s move on to the batteries so based on the size of the devices of course the s21 does have the smallest battery 4 000 milliamps the s21 plus has a 4 800 milliamp battery and the s21 ultra with the biggest 5000 milliamp hour battery all devices do support up to 25 watt fast charging up to 15 watts wireless charging they will also have reverse wireless charging where you can use the devices to charge maybe some galaxy buds or another device altogether but none of the devices come with a charger or earphones out of the box now this has been something that’s been rumored for some time but it’s now officially confirmed Samsung is not including this and i mean it’s controversial personally speaking i do use wireless charging mostly so not having a charger is not the biggest deal for me the problem i do have is the fact that Samsung wore taking digs at apple just a few months ago when apple didn’t include a charger and this is something that you know really does work me up I’ve gone on about this in a full rant in my podcast on supersaf speaks shameless plug there why not if you do want to hear that podcast then I’ll be linking that down below let me know what you guys think of Samsung not including the charger out of the box one thing that might help the blow of not having a charger out of the box is the fact that the s21 series is priced lower quite a bit lower actually compared to what the s20 series came in at last year so the Samsung galaxy s21 is going to be starting at 800 or 769 pounds the s21 plus will be coming in at a thousand dollars or 950 pounds the s21 ultra starts at 1300 or 1150 pounds which is at least in the uk significantly lower compared to what the s20 ultra came in last year in terms of the release date you can pre-order now 29th of jan is the official release dates but obviously before that we are going to be doing lots more coverage here on the channel unboxing camera comparison hands-on if you want to see all of that content first you know what to do hit that subscribe button and that bell icon so you don’t miss any of that coverage that’s coming up what do you guys think of the Samsung galaxy s21 series will you be picking one up which one would you be picking up definitely drop me a comment below and let me know your thoughts i hope you enjoyed this video and found it useful if you did then do hit that thumbs up button for me thanks for watching this is saf on supersaf tv and I’ll see you next time you
What’s happening everyone. Welcome back to another video and today us to be able to dive depth in this iPhone 12 pro and positioned it up in a way that we can get the most out of this. These will be about 10-20 tip-off from basic to more advance ones so if you know any of these already simply hop-skip to the next one. I likewise have some free app icons giveaway related in the description as well as some cheap accessories so taken to ensure that out as well. With that tell me anything, makes get started!
So right off the back, as we all know that now apple has much less bulky boxing done for the iPhone for protecting the environment. which I am sure is a waste because every separate accessory comes in its own box. As soon as we open the box we are welcomed with the camera as that is the most differentiating factor compared to previous models. The box also has just the usb is to brighten adopter and some much smaller number of guides. The peripheries of the phone are much flatter now and this metal is very much of a fingerprint magnet.
the sim slit is to the bottom left under the volume down. Now that the basic setup is done, gives go over the general navigation tips.
If you want to exit out of an app simply swipe up from the bottom. If you swipe up and maintained then it will show you all of your race apps. You are eligible to simply swipe up on them to quite you can also do the same on various apps at the same time.
you can also swipe left or right at the bottom edge like this to switch between the apps.
You can swipe down from the top right corner to access the mastery center. You can swipe down from the top left to access the notifications. Control center is where you would find a shortcut to a bunch of facets as well as employments like back light calculator and many more. You can also computed or remove any of these applications by going into settings then self-restraint center.
I just wanted to point out One very important feature of Record application. If you include it to the control center and then simply sounds and hold on it, you get some stunning features extremely Searching papers where you can scan a document immediately to your phone and send it to someone instead of having a need of printer. Since we still need to buy the charger for it and there are tons of other supplementary we can also buy, I will have some cost efficient alternatives relation in the specific characteristics that you can check out. Next up I want to talk about the face ID feature.
We all is clear that during COVID or maybe afterwards as well, having a mask on are likely to be the brand-new norm.
Apple understands that it would be a trouble to keep taking the mask off to open your phone using faceID and that’s why they have added the option to have an alternative face ID where if you have a mask on you can still unlock the phone very easily. It can also work to have another persons face registered under Face ID. This next feature is a must have and it’s sitting right there in the situates. It’s called exposure notification.
This feature alerts you about an area where someone was exposed to COVID 19 and helps you stay protected.
In certain countries., since its very sensitive data, government doesn’t allow apple to access that data and have their own works that do this job. You will be given that option once you enter your region. In our case here in Canada we have this COVID Alert app. Make sure to download that.
Next option is wallpapers. The built in wallpapers from apple are amazing but one of the piece that ios1 4 brought to the table was to be able to change the layout of the phone so if you need to find some very creative wallpapers, I would suggest going with Zedge application. This app has been in the market for over a decade and has all types of wallpapers as well as ringtones and is completely worth it. I won’t go into much detail because there are tons of videos for that already.
But this is the basics of how to change the layout.
if you tap and hold on the screen and get into the shaking mode you would witness these dots at the bottom of the screen simply sound that and you are able to watch all the home screen pages available. You can simply switch off any page you want. If you were to tap the plus icon at the top left corner, you can add any of these widgets available with different size alternatives. You can also drag them anywhere on the page to make it look good.
I also have some app icon giveaway joined in the specific characteristics so check that out as well.
causes talk about the camera application. iPhone camera has always been the best among all four videos. instead of scrolling over to video alternative you are eligible to simply tap and hold the screen button to record a video .. If you want to lock it there you are eligible to simply nursed and move your hand over to the right side and it will restrain recording.
if you retain, tap and view was usually for burst shots but now you can swipe to the left to make that burst shot. You can tap on these digits that represent the zoom and switch between the camera lenses or simply sounds on one and then move this zoom rotation that appears to slowly do the same.
You can also tap on the upper right corner to swap between the quality of the footage. One more peculiarity you need to be aware of is this Green Dot that appears on the upper right corner of the screen. This visually goes to show that sure-fire privacy pertained specific areas of your phone circuit board are active.
This is a great feature that reminds us about the specific characteristics and potential hacks. Green represents the camera and orange represent audio recorder. Next facet is photo or video editing which have gotten much more advance than before. Simply sounds on this edit alternative at the top right corner and you get all of these features to play around with and acquire your idol inspection considerably better right in your phone. We all know that one of the issues with phones and all the possibilities that it comes with is that we tend to waste a lot of season on it.
And that’s why there is this screen time feature that lets you know how much go are you expend doing what on the machine. There is a widget for it as well. Next is to set up the email account on your telephone. You can go into settings and mail this is where you can simply login using any of the service you have and if you have multiple details you are able adjusted the default account as well as a signature at the lower end of every email. I hope you guys experienced this video make sure to hit that like button and I will catch you guys in the next one … agreement!
