How An Infinite Hotel Ran Out Of Room

– Imagine there's a hotel
with infinite rooms. They're numbered one, two,
three, four, and so on forever. This is the Hilbert Hotel
and you are the manager. Now it might seem like you could accommodate
anyone who ever shows up, but there is a limit, a way to exceed even the infinity of rooms
at the Hilbert Hotel. To start let's say only one
person is allowed in each room and all the rooms are full.

There are an infinite number of people, in an infinite number of rooms. Then someone new shows
up and they want a room, but all the rooms are occupied. So what should you do? Well, a lesser manager
might turn them away, but you know about infinity. So you get on the PA and you tell all the
guests to move down a room. So the person in room
one moves to room two. The one in room two moves to room three, and so on down the line. And now you can put the
new guest in room one.

If a bus shows up with a hundred people, you know exactly what to do just move everyone down a hundred rooms and put the new guests
in their vacated rooms. But now let's say a bus shows
up that is infinitely long, and it's carrying infinitely many people. You knew what to do with
a finite number of people but what do you do with infinite people? You think about it for a minute and then come up with a plan. You tell each of your existing guests to move to the room with
double their room number. So the person in room
one moves to room two, room two moves to room four, room three to room six and so on. And now all of the odd
numbered rooms are available. And you know, there are an
infinite number of odd numbers.

So you can give each
person on the infinite bus, a unique, odd numbered room. This hotel is really starting to feel like it can fit everybody. And that's the beauty of infinity, it goes on forever. And then all of a sudden
more infinite buses show up, not just one or two, but an infinite number of infinite buses. So, what can you do? Well, you pull out an infinite
spreadsheet of course. You make a row for each bus, bus 1 bus 2 bus 3 and so on. And a row at the top for all the people who
are already in the hotel. The columns are for the
position each person occupies. So you've got hotel room
one, hotel room two, hotel room three, et cetera. And then bus one seat
one, bus one seat two, bus one seat three and so on.

So each person gets a unique identifier which is a combination of their vehicle and their position in it. So how do you assign the rooms? Well start in the top left corner and draw a line that
zigzags back and forth across the spreadsheet, going over each unique ID exactly once. Then imagine you pull on the
opposite ends of this line, straightening it out. So we've gone from an
infinite by infinite grid, to a single infinite line. It's then pretty simple just to line up each person on that line with a unique room in the hotel. So everyone fits, no problem. But now a big bus pulls up. An infinite party bus with no seats. Instead, everyone on board is identified by their unique name,
which is kind of strange. So their names all consist
of only two letters, A and B But each name is infinitely long. So someone is named A, B, B,
A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, A, and so on forever. Someone else is named AB,
AB, AB, AB, AB, et cetera. On this bus, there's a person with every possible infinite
sequence of these two letters.

Now, ABB, A, A, A, A, I'll
call him Abba for short. He comes into the hotel
to arrange the rooms, but you tell him, "Sorry, there's no way we can
fit all of you in the hotel." And he's like, "What do you mean? "There's an infinite number of us "and you have an infinite number of rooms. "Why won't this work?" So you show him. you pull out your infinite
spreadsheet again and start assigning rooms
to people on the bus. So you have room one, assign it to ABBA, and then room two to
AB AB AB AB repeating. And you keep going,
putting a different string of As and Bs beside each room number. "Now here's the problem," you tell ABBA, "let's say we have a
complete infinite list. "I can still write down
the name of a person, "who doesn't yet have a room." The way you do it is you
take the first letter of the first name and
flip it from an A to a B.

Then take the second
letter of the second name and flip it from a B to an A. And you keep doing this
all the way down the list. And the name you write down
is guaranteed to appear nowhere on that list. Because it won't match the
first letter of the first name, or the second letter of the second name, or the third letter of the third name. It will be different from
every name on the list, by at least one character.

The letter on the diagonal. The number of rooms in the
Hilbert Hotel is infinite, sure, but it is countably infinite. Meaning there are as many rooms as there are positive
integers one to infinity. By contrast, the number
of people on the bus is uncountably infinite. If you try to match up
each one with an integer, you will still have people leftover. Some infinities are bigger than others. So there's a limit to the
people that you can fit, in the Hilbert Hotel. This is mind blowing enough, but what's even crazier is that the discovery of different
sized infinities, sparked a line of inquiry
that led directly, to the invention of the device you're watching this on right now.

But that's a story for another time. (upbeat music).

DJI Osmo Mobile 2 | Must-Have Phone Camera Accessory for Travel?

Hi there, it's Ernest from Trip Astute. In
this video, we're reviewing the DJI Osmo Mobile 2, and determining whether it's
worth getting for your next trip. (light chiming music) We recently did a video on whether you need
a better travel camera. In that video, I suggested checking out gimbals and they
seemed like a great way to improve the stability of your videos. I've been
really impressed with the three axis gimbal stabilization found on my DJI
Mavic Air drone, so I thought I'd try out the latest mobile phone gimbal called
the Osmo Mobile 2 that was just released in January 2018.

The DJI Osmo
Mobile 2 is the second generation of their mobile phone handheld gimbal, and
it's actually a lot cheaper too. The original used to run for $299 while the
new model costs only $129 US dollars. That's a pretty significant difference
in price. Most of that comes from DJI's switch from an all-metal design to a
plastic build. However, the Osmo Mobile 2 also has some new capabilities that were
not found in the original model, like the ability to orient the phone in portrait
mode rather than just landscape. Before I get into what I like and dislike about
the Osmo Mobile 2, I do want to add a caveat that this is not a comprehensive
tech review, but one that is geared more for the traveler. If you want to see
every feature and capability, then you'll want to check out some of the great
reviews posted by other tech reviewers on YouTube. I've included some of my
favorite ones below. So, let's start with what I like about the DJI Osmo Mobile 2.
Well to start, I think the build quality seems to be solid. Even though the body
is plastic, it still feels substantial.

And as with other DJI products, it
seems very well-built and seems like it would survive the wear and tear that
would occur during travel. Another thing that I like is the battery and charging
capabilities. The battery is rated to last 15 hours. Though even more
interesting is the fact that you can charge your mobile phone in the event
that you need additional power. In that case, the Osmo Mobile 2 can function
like a spare battery charger. And on the flip side, if you need to charge your
Osmo Mobile 2 while away from a plug, you can use a portable battery charger.
The Osmo Mobile 2 also has some awesome modes and features. The Active Track
feature allows you to track a subject, and from my casual testing, seems to work
pretty well.

The gimbal also has a Motion Lapse mode which allows you to capture
motion time lapses. This is an awesome feature and can help take normal time
lapses to the next level. So the Osmo Mobile sounds great,
right? Well, there are some serious issues. First off, I knew going in that the
original Osmo Mobile was known to have issues with jittery video, particularly
with mobile phones that have optical image stabilization or OIS that can't
be locked or disabled.

I don't know the technical ins and outs, but essentially
the camera's OIS and the gimbal are in conflict when it comes to stabilizing
the video, which causes this weird jittery effect. Unfortunately, this is
still an issue with the Osmo Mobile 2. What makes it even more weird is it
seems to be more present when capturing video using the DJI Go app. If you look
at the footage, you'll notice that the video seems to jitter whenever I take a
step. However, when I use the native Apple Camera app, then you'll see that the
video seems smoother, though not completely free of the jitter. You'll
also notice that when I use a front-facing camera, the video is much
smoother. This is because the front camera doesn't have OIS which means
that the gimbal is able to do its job of stabilizing the movement and vibration. I
also did a side by side with the DJI Go app and the native camera app while using
the Osmo Mobile 2, and I honestly think that the native app looks better, which
is just strange since the DJI app is supposed to be optimized for the gimbal.
The differences are less apparent when using the front-facing camera.

This makes
sense as the front camera doesn't have OIS So, if your primary use of the Osmo
Mobile 2 is more vlogging or selfies, this might still be a viable option for
you. The other thing that concerns me with the Osmo Mobile 2 is its size
and clunkiness when traveling. I honestly didn't expect this to be an issue, but i
couldn't figure out a good way to carry it while I was walking around the LA
Travel and Adventure Show. With a normal camera, I can just have it strapped to my

However, I think you would need some kind of holster in order to carry the
gimbal hands-free, which is something to consider when traveling especially when
you need to sign receipts or carry items. Calibrating the gimbal with my phone
was also another annoyance with the Osmo Mobile 2. While I understand why I have
to do it, I didn't realize that I have to do it throughout the day, especially
after holding the gimbal under my arms. It might not seem like a
big deal, but I feel like at least half of the videos and photos that I capture
when traveling are spontaneous, and I don't know if I would be able to use the
Osmo Mobile as quickly during those kinds of situations.

Lastly, using your
phone while in the gimbal is cumbersome. I realized that if I'm placing the phone
in the Osmo Mobile 2, I'm gonna use it primarily as a camera. But when traveling,
I use my phone all the time to get maps, information, or stay in contact. What I
didn't anticipate was a difficulty of having to pull out the phone each time I
need to use it, and even using it while still in the gimbal. So unfortunately, I
think I'm going to return my Osmo Mobile 2. For me, the big deal breaker was the
jittery video. From what I understand, it's not DJI's fault. This is more of an
issue with the OIS not being lockable on certain phones. However, I do think that
it would be better for DJI to put a label on the box
or a note on the website letting folks know of the issue. It might be something
that can be addressed in a future app update, but for now, it's
enough of an issue for me not to recommend the unit. Personally, I would
rather carry another camera that isn't as cumbersome.

Cameras like my Canon G7X
have pretty good in-body stabilization, though you have to learn to walk like a
ninja. I'm also a bit more picky about my video, so you might not care as much
about the jitter, which can probably smooth out using video editing software.
If you do decide that the Osmo Mobile 2 is right for you, I recommend watching
the DJI Support videos on setting up the device. I made the mistake of relying on
the instruction manual and didn't quite get the calibration right. After watching
the video, it made a lot more sense and I was able to properly calibrate the
gimbal. Do you have any experience with the DJI Osmo Mobile 2 or any other
gimbal? If so, I'd love to hear how you carry them when traveling and whether
you find them to be an essential part of your travel camera gear. I've included
links of some of the products shown in this video.

What is a Google Phone?! Reviewing Every Pixel/Nexus Ever!

so we've come a long way with smartphones and you could definitely see that when i reviewed every single iphone in a row that's ever been made 1 through 13. but this this should be very different because the question of what exactly defines a google phone has changed quite a bit over the years they've been all over the place but they've also come a long way in a different way [Music] so what is a google phone first of all well today the correct answer would be a pixel of course right but if you ask the same question anywhere from around 2010 to 2015 the correct answer would have been a nexus a nexus is a google phone or maybe any number of google play editions but if we're going all the way back to the beginning which we are it started with this the g1 so the g1 was manufactured by htc and this is going to be a key thing to pay attention to throughout this whole timeline because until the year 2016 google has never been the manufacturer the hardware company that builds the google phone google makes great software and great services but absolutely has never been a hardware company they've just been out here making android so before the g1 android was originally built to be an alternate operating system for digital cameras still a great idea by the way uh but eventually google bought android in 2005.

I think andy rubin at some point called it literally the best deal ever but there was briefly a prototype called the sooner that was never sold but was manufactured also by htc based on their excalibur and used to demonstrate and test this new version of an open source mobile operating system and then by 2008 we had the t-mobile g1 i remember really wanting this phone but i was on verizon and i was 15 so i couldn't just switch for a phone that looked cool but it did it looked so cool it was really a different design from so many of the other phones out at that time it had a trackball in addition to the touchscreen which wasn't that weird because blackberries had those too but there was also the end call sleep wake button there was a dedicated camera button with a state-of-the-art 3 megapixel camera on the back but also there were these buttons down here on a chin that's bent in at the bottom which is very different and that sliding mechanism for the keyboard which is still super springy and very satisfying was always pretty unique even at a time where lots of phones had springs and hinges and of course on top of all of that it was running android version one on 192 megabytes of ram and a 320 by 480 display now being different isn't always necessarily good right this phone definitely got mixed reviews when it dropped you know the low contrast screen wasn't amazing there was no headphone jack so you needed an adapter for this proprietary mini usb port to plug in headphones but this google phone was all about android it was all about the software and that's what made it different from the blackberries or palm trios or even the original iphone that was out at this time that's what the g1 was all about so this phone had to come out for the rest of what we're talking about today to even exist but what most people think of when they think of the first ever google phone is this the nexus one so right off the bat this phone was a flagship i remember it was a huge deal that it launched with a one gigahertz processor that was a barrier we were approaching at the time it had a relatively large 3.7 inch display and a higher 800 by 480 resolution and beyond all the new power in the big screen there is now multi-touch capability so the most memorable feature you might remember about this phone was the live wallpaper behind all your icons and new widgets i feel like every video on this phone had the live wallpaper with the moving colors and you could just touch a bunch of different spots and they'd pop up oh and it had a trackball again so clearly google liked that as much as i did there were some other things too like the back popped off battery removable this phone also launched back this early with google goggles which let you id things through the camera that's a long time to be doing that and also it launched with the android market which was an early first version of what we now know as google play store so a lot of things happening on the nexus one but i think really this is the phone that set the tone for me from what i expect a google phone to be which is a flagship a very capable flagship phone but asterisk this phone is again built by htc you can see the little badge at the bottom here and so at this point htc is building plenty of other great phones but they've also collaborated with google on this one so we get an htc build it's pretty dense it's made of metal it also has a spot for a micro sd card slot to expand memory alongside that removable battery there is some resemblance to some other htc phones that came out around the time and chief among them was the htc desire but with some google specific adjustments like the capacitive button layout below the screen was just for nexus one and the trackball which also lit up as a notification light was just for nexus one so this one was sick weird fact though it was discontinued completely after six months you know didn't really get any promo from carriers was kind of trying to be sold online only and it was just over after half a year so then we moved on so what did we get after nexus one we got nexus s and this one was made by samsung so this launched right around the same time as their first ever samsung galaxy s hence the name so those phones were built similarly but again this one was customized a bit for the google experience and so now that we have a sequel this is the first time we're really thinking about the question what is a nexus what is a google phone supposed to be there were also some curious things about this phone like it had a slightly curved four inch display that wrapped a little bit i guess around your face or felt more natural in the hand sort of sure it was also one of the first ever phones with nfc which would of course be the foundation later to android pay and it's the first google phone with a selfie camera it was a vga resolution selfie camera but it was still a selfie camera this phone launched with android gingerbread which was one of the first versions it was the first version to have a darker aesthetic not quite hollow but definitely shades of the night mode we have today and a screen off animation also one of the coolest most memorable things about this phone look like a crt tv turning off it's the little things but really at this point nexus is the phone with the most google software it's the pure android phone so it doesn't have any bloatware it doesn't have any modifications doesn't have any skin like you might find on the samsung version or an htc or motorola phone it's the google software phone so the next year in 2011 we got the galaxy nexus so there's an even more obvious collab between google and samsung we all know about galaxy s this was a nexus again made by samsung so it's the galaxy nexus and as a verizon customer this was the first nexus i was able to get and it was also the first and only phone i've ever lined up outside of a store and waited for then i proceeded to make eight videos on it but again this was a really interesting phone as a google phone so it had a much larger 4.65 inch still curved 720p hd oled display and it had a better 5 megapixel rear camera on the back with instant shutter it still had a headphone jack and it still had an easily removable battery remember those days when you could just pop out the battery and drop in another one two seconds later and be at 100 but now as a nexus this phone launches with stock android 4.0 ice cream sandwich the holo os the physical buttons are gone long before the iphone dropped their home button and android is now entirely doing on-screen navigation and like i mentioned this phone is in stores so i got it out of verizon store now it still wasn't a huge seller nexuses were still for android enthusiasts but yeah i was in the thick of it i remember i had custom roms custom kernels on this phone i overclocked this phone i was having a good time the galaxy nexus but things were about to change so i'm going to skip the beloved nexus 7 tablet and the not so beloved nexus q media player that technically came up next they were nexuses but they weren't google phones there was also a motorola zoom tablet that i loved back in the day that was succeeded by a nexus 10 but the next nexus phone was the nexus 4.

So now we've moved on to a google phone made by lg so this phone was interesting it sort of took a step back from being a flagship on the shelf of a carrier store and went back to being a great deal that you could get online so we have this unique flat glass design with no camera bump and a super unique dot pattern underneath that you could see when the light hit it a certain way it had a slot speaker around the back which is an interesting choice but at least you could cup your hand around it and hear it better at the front but of course now with this glass design it becomes the first nexus that supports wireless charging but the back is no longer removable this phone dropped for 299 which in 2012 yep was a good deal although that was the base 8 gig model so you could spring for the upgraded 16 roomy 16 gigs of memory for 349 bucks um it was lacking lte at the time which was a bit much but overall the phone was pretty well liked so now what's a google phone uh a well-specced competitive stock android phone for enthusiasts i guess well nexus 5 was built by lg again this time loosely based off of the lg g2 but this was a design i really liked it was understated had some contrasting black and white hardware i called it the panda phone because who else did a white earpiece like this nobody but honestly the rest of the phone was pretty forgettable they got up to a flagship spec again snapdragon 800 with two gigs of ram 1080p display but i was pretty unimpressed by the camera it did make hangouts the default text messaging app but if you know anything about google messaging apps yeah that wouldn't last long i think probably the most significant thing that came from the nexus 5 was a little extra focus on the stock google now launcher so these phones have always shipped with aosp which is android open source project it's basically just a version of android that you get when you download it straight from google stock blank nothing extra added but now google's actually starting to add a little bit of its own special sauce on top of android when it ships it with a nexus phone so this shipped with android 4.4 kitkat one of the two candy themed collabs but the launcher had google now built in where you could swipe over from the home screen and it would give you these cards and the google assistant would show you this information on the cards that it predicted would be useful to you before you would even ask for it so stuff like the weather at a destination you're about to fly to or the traffic on your way to work before you leave in the morning really smart stuff so nexus 5 was an uninspiring piece of hardware pretty simple and basic definitely was the beginning of seeing some of google leaning into being a smarter phone than your typical smartphone also shout out to the red version of this guy that came out a few months after launch that was so bright that it literally over saturated pretty much everyone's camera i remember it was impossible to make this phone look the actual red that it shipped on video but it completed the trifecta of the mkbhd edition smartphone colors so that was very nice okay here comes 2014 and here comes shamu the most unnecessarily massive nexus of all time now made by motorola so okay at this point is there any theme to who makes the nexus phone each year i mean it feels like they just offer up a two-year contract every time and see who wants to sign allegedly they were really close to working with huawei on this year's phone but had to scrap it at the last second so okay we got nexus 6 just based loosely around the 2nd gen moto x but just way bigger and it is huge it's got a massive nearly 6 inch 1440p display flanked by stereo front-facing speakers and the bezels and you know we have big screens nowadays but this was also in the days of the 16×9 aspect ratio so it's super wide too just huge in the hand not to jump ahead too much but nexus 6 is actually bigger and wider than the pixel 6.

So huge display huge 3200 milliamp hour battery with motorola's turbo charging huge new 13 megapixel camera with a huge new ring flash around it and huge new flagship specs snapdragon 805 three gigs of ram and up to 64 gigs of storage and android 5.0 lollipop but along with all these insane specs was an insane price for the time so nexus 6 cost 649 for the base 32 gig version and a whopping 700 bucks for the 64.

So it was not only big but it had the biggest price tag of any google phone yet especially coming off the back of the more competitive nexus 4 and 5. fun fact the internal code name of this phone when they were developing it shamu the orca the whale see everyone knew it was big but maybe the most sneaky important feature of the nexus 6 came in the camera so this was the first ever google phone to launch with hdr plus didn't seem like a huge deal at the time it was just maybe one more feature in the camera but it was combining multiple frames all together in a quick shot to bring in more dynamic range and notoriously took a lot of processing power so hdr plus was just an option that you had to turn on to get that extra latitude but that right there that was an inflection point for smartphone cameras in general i mean nowadays if you don't have hdr you're not really doing it right but just the fact that we take for granted now one single shutter press information from several different frames all get processed and smartly blended together big moment there so then nexus 9 you were great nexus player definitely not great but then in 2015 we got two new nexus phones at once we got the 5x made by lg and the nexus 6p made by huawei okay so the nexus 5x as the name suggests was a bit of an upgrade from the nexus 5.

It added a fingerprint reader on the back updated specs bigger battery switched to usb type c all the classics it did also have boot loop issues that thankfully never affected mine but that phone was 379 then at the same time we get this all metal jacket nexus 6p p for premium probably but this was an all metal build with a camera visor at the top it had the flat sides which we still know today as premium the ridged power button the front-facing speakers and the highest end chip and hdr got even better this one had a stellar camera 6p was pretty universally praised as literally one of the best if not the best android phones on the planet this one sold for 4.99 so google you just made two different nexuses at the same time nexuses nexi you made two of them at once right one of them cheaper one of them more expensive one of them budget one of them contender for phone of the year very premium and so this is usually what you see from companies that are trying to offer two different options for two different customers it's what you get while you're trying to appeal to a broader variety of the masses which is an interesting move and then that's the last we ever saw of nexus so enter google pixel i just want to say as a video enthusiast i love the word pixel as a name for a phone but that is a new name so we've had nexus and nexus up until this point we could think of as the google software phone right we had all the samsungs and htc's and motorolas and huawei's of the world making all their own phones but the google version with the nexus name would be stock android quick updates straight from google there was also a brief stint of google play edition phones in 2013 to 2014 that combined the hardware of the best phones in the world with google's stock software does anyone else remember these i love these phones there was a google play edition samsung galaxy s4 it was amazing there was a sony xperia z ultra there was a google play edition htc one m8 honestly some of the best phones ever but this is a brand new thing this is pixel it's not nexus so why the rebrand why the new name well there's a bunch of different correct answers i think to this but basically this is the first phone that's designed and built by google so there's your google logo down there it's the first iteration of this new two-tone design i mean internally they still had some help but this would be considered the first real google phone but also a big part of what makes pixel next level is how they really started leaning into it being a particularly smart smartphone so it already had that google launcher and the clean look but we're drifting further away from aosp this is not the exact version of android you'd get straight from google this is now like the google skin on top of android so it's the first android phone with the google assistant built in and it's got the camera again taking pretty big leaps forward thanks to hdr plus continuing to get better and i just remember seeing this announcement and getting really optimistic about the future of competition because surely if we have the iphones of the world where apple controls the hardware the software the chip the whole everything was made by apple to work perfectly together then surely this is the beginning of google doing their best version of the same thing you know so google pixel 2 i think was peak pixel and that's at least in two ways right with that camera and with that two-tone design i love a good panda phone already or stormtrooper whatever you want to call it we saw hints of this with the nexus 6p but google is now just full-on embracing the two different finishes on the back by contrasting them with black and white and then the colored power button wow what a great idea for just a little splash of color a little accent on the side but there were a few other notable things here they got rid of the headphone jack they did have some blue shift display controversy on the xl version which used the new lg p led and i even made a video a few months after launch about why i don't use the pixel anymore because of slowing down issues with the software over time but what the pixel 2 was really famous for was this single camera so it had a new 12.2 megapixel sensor in there and featured the latest and greatest from google's camera app their hdr plus and their multi-fame processing and this phone just kicked out incredible photos it leapfrogged over everything else out it had excellent detail sharpness dynamic range shutter speed focus everything and the videos it took weren't even that good but the photos were just so good that this was basically universally praised when it came out as the best smartphone camera of all time but also at this point i think it's worth talking about sales so this one comes out google's selling three to five million pixels per year which is nice right but at the same time you know apple selling 200 million phones a year samsung selling 300 million phones a year so even with this incredible world-class camera great reviews enthusiasts loving it great software it's not a lot of people buying it so pixel 3 comes out in 2018 and every bit of it feels just like a refinement on the pixel 2 which is great for people who love the pixel 2 but the minor improvement alone probably isn't going to spike sales as you can imagine and there's also regular and an xl version of every pixel since the first one but this one's xl came with a super duper alpha omega bathtub notch up at the top at this point i think we can say it's the deepest notch we've ever seen in a phone it did have both a regular and ultra wide selfie camera up at the front on either side of the earpiece front-facing speaker so honestly i loved that extra ultra wide selfie camera on the xl but nobody really loved the notch there was an old google tweet basically trying to justify it by saying oh don't worry the notch to display ratio is actually less than many of our top competitors it's like yeah that's probably true but also so would this notch but that doesn't make it good either way aside from that minor tweaks overall refinement of the build materials ip68 water resistance finally up from ip67 wireless charging gets added here night sight is added to the camera app but basically the same revolutionary camera as last year and overall pretty solid update doesn't really move the needle you know it did move the needle though the pixel 3 a this phone shifted things for google so halfway through 2019 at google i o they announced a budget version of the pixel it's a 3a and a 3a xl starting at 399 which is half the price that the pixel 3 started at so it has all the same software smarts all the stuff that made pixel enthusiasts love the phones but made a budget version with a lower powered internals polycarbonate instead of metal and glass still has great battery life in the same world-class camera that put the pixel on the map for so many people and it was a hit basically from the moment this phone was released it was most of the pixel sales and so there's some upside and some downside to this level of visibility the upside obviously is there's now more people seeing and using these phones and google assistant and all this great stuff and the camera but now the most successful version of this product is the cheap one which means that when people think of what is a google phone what is a pixel they think of it as the cheap phone that takes good pictures they're not thinking of the fast one or the high-end one it's the cheap phone with the good pictures pixel 4 came out after that and honestly felt like a slight misstep it launched again starting at 800 bucks they're trying the flagship thing again but there were a bunch of quirky weird features that either didn't really make sense or didn't pan out the way google was probably hoping now again it had the same a plus camera as the pixel 2 but it's been two years now so the rest of the world is starting to catch up and it's not so unanimous anymore and it was a bit short on battery life and with the addition of a second rear camera for the first time they chose a telephoto instead of a much more popular and useful ultra wide even though they talked a lot about the software super res zoom and not needing a telephoto anyway it was the solely radar array up front that was an interesting idea with a ton of cool demos and other products but really turned out to draw a lot of power and ultimately not have the functionality in a phone that people were looking for and it would get mixed in a year so pixel 4 stepped back from being one of the best phones out period to being genuinely pretty hard to recommend i mean not a lot of people bought this phone the sales figures say there was about 2 million sales of pixel 4 in the first six months interestingly my review of the pixel 4 got 4.8 million views in the first six months so a lot of attention just not a lot of people buying the phone and that's until pixel 4a came out so naturally google followed up the successful pixel 3a budget king with a pixel 4a and they followed the same formula with a lot of the same stuff that people liked about the 3a same camera again polycarbonate two-tone design but this year the materials were even better a little more textured polycarbonate the screen was fantastic especially for the price they crushed it plus they even lowered the price to start at 349 so to no one's surprise following the same formula got them a lot of people to really love pixel 4a so okay at this point it feels like google sort of settled into something with the pixel right got pixel 3 pixel 3a pixel 4 pixel 4a disappointing flagship smash hit budget phone disappointing flagship smash hit budget phone and so if you keep going down this path you continue to cement pixel as a budget phone maybe the rest of it kind of fades into obscurity and it even kind of felt like the design was slowly getting more generic and plain the two-tone is kind of gone even the colored power button is a bit more muted it's succumbed to the pressures of the industry the back fingerprint reader is gone the headphone jack is gone so this google phone this this pixel has basically just become uh not that impressive hardware wise but really incredible like silo for google to demonstrate all of their machine learning and their software and ai and that's not something that's going to sell a whole ton i mean enthusiasts will love it but it doesn't even let them reach their max potential with that either they're a little limited by whatever the latest off-the-shelf qualcomm chip is capable of or designed for so this spoiler alert is right around when they started making some serious progress on something new in the background so this is why pixel 5 and 5a felt kind of like placeholder phones pixel 5 here is a 700 flagship so relatively normal price but there's no xl version just one size there's no higher capacity storage versions just a single 128 gig non-expandable spec snapdragon 765 g just an off-the-shelf upper mid-range chip that's it it's just it's here it's a phone it's like the it's like the blank canvas 2020 of phones like oh you've got a corner cut out for the selfie camera so does everybody else it's got wireless charging it's got no headphone jack it's like we've seen this shell before well maybe not with the soft touch on top of metal but inside is where all that software magic is still happening that all the enthusiasts who love the pixel still care deeply about all that's still in there so that's how most reviews including my own looked at the pixel 5.

Decent if underwhelming hardware but android 11 is better than ever google assistant is improving on these incredibly useful pixel exclusive features on top of aosp like assistant screening spam calls and it's once again basically the same camera stack as the pixel 2 but computational photography still brings out the best of this hardware and it is still one of the best photo takers in the industry then pixel 5a drops almost a year later again with one spec and one size and it is very very very very very similar to the pixel 4a 5g from the year before but predictably people like a big screen and a big battery and a big camera performer for a low price so this was again the winner but this whole time kind of in the background some of it because there's always rumors of things in the tech industry but some of it because it was truly new was rumors of google working on a phone that is even more of a google phone than before and google's pretty bad at containing leaks so a lot of that stuff got out and they just straight up confirmed it and so after many teasers and pre-released information and leaks it finally arrived 2021's pixel 6.

This is now the apex of being the most google phone ever finally i actually remember being in some meetings and briefings with some google employees before this phone came out they're showing it to me and they all kind of have this smirk on their face like yeah we finally did it we really made a google phone this time because now this one has a google design google software and a google designed chip called tensor and so kind of like how the name changed from nexus to pixel when they finally started doing the design themselves they've definitely changed up the design here with this camera bar at this beginning of them designing their own silicon and the benefits of the new silicon with the dedicated machine learning accelerators has been very real both with the photo and video processing now and speech to text things like that the rest of the phone is also now pretty high end across the board mostly not quite bleeding edge but you add the larger higher resolution high refresh rate displays faster charging more ram and a suite of all new much larger camera sensors featuring a massive main sensor so then it does start to feel like a pretty big upgrade the most impressive thing about this phone though might just be how much effort google now is putting in to making sure the world knows that this is a flagship i mean all the advertising spend all the effort getting this in front of people's eyes this is a flagship and it's a google flagship and it's a good one that's what they want us all to think now from some conversations i've had with people at google they were working on tensor for a long time and they actually wanted to have this out earlier they're actually planning on pixel 5 being the first phone with tensor but then with covid and supply chain issues and a bunch of things getting in the way at the last second they kind of had to bail on that but they still wanted to drop a new phone so they just put a snapdragon 765 g in it shipped it called it a day and kept putting their heads down for pixel 6.

So it is out now and while they're definitely trying to be flagship flagship flagship they're also definitely not going to shy away from the proven formula of making a pixel 6a i would totally expect to see that sometime soon probably going to look a lot like this but cheaper materials it'll come out it'll probably also do really well but i think now if you revisit the question one last time of what is a google phone we see google trying to push an answer on us which is it's a flagship phone it's genuine option and it's got a lot of good stuff and that's where we stand today 13 years of google trying to make a smartphone and going from the g1 to the nexus one to the pixel one and the merging from uh from defining a google phone as the phone made by another manufacturer with the google software on it alongside another version that has some skin to being a google play editions to being the nexus designed by google all the way up now to the pixel where all the way top to bottom you pretty much have google stuff so the tensor phone is the beginning of the new definition looking forward for what is a google phone and we'll continue to see that evolve over time from here either way that's pretty much it definitely let me know what other lines of phones should i look at there's a lot of other options there's the galaxy s line there's the oneplus line a bunch of others leave it in the comments section below under that like button thanks for watching thanks for subscribing catch you in the next one peace

An ICE COLD Gaming Phone? – Durability Test!

So it's been a pretty rough year for gaming
phones, with both the ROG Phone 5 and the Legion Phone 2 getting a game over in their
first durability test. It's time to see if this Black Shark 4 can
hold up any better. Today's video is sponsored by Omaze who I
partnered up with to give away a brand new, custom Tesla Model S and $20,000 in cash that
you can keep for yourself or pay it forward. Omaze does these massive giveaways while supporting
nonprofits. And in this particular case we're supporting
a nonprofit called Give Power, which helps get energy and clean water to regions around
the globe that need it.

I'll explain more at the end of the video,
but you can always go to to get entered for your chance to win. And of course I'll put a link in the description. I think it's time we see how durable this
Black Shark 4 really is. Let's get started. [Intro] The Black Shark 4 is intriguing for multiple
reasons, one is it's $500 price point, and the other is this active refrigerating coolant
we'll get to in a second. Inside the box we get a free hard plastic
case…kind of nice. Free protection is a good thing. And then we have the phone itself. It's quite a bit different than last year's
design. Still incredibly flashy like a gaming phone
usually is. But we are missing the metal X framed across
the back panel which means that this bend test could be rather interesting.

It's also got a 1020 watt fast charger in
the box. Black Shark was one of the first devices to
every implement that dual battery charging, so I assume that's what's going on again this
year. 120 watts is an impressive amount of power
and should get from 0-100% charged in just about 17 minutes. We'll try out the case just for kicks and
giggles. I always have a case on my own phone. It looks like the case won't be compatible
with that refrigerated cooler though so we can just take it off for now. The other interesting component on this new
Black Shark phone is the physical motorized popup trigger buttons on the corners. Most gaming phones have some kind of capacitive
or ultrasonic trigger buttons on the frame, but there's something to be said for an actual
tactile button. These buttons can be mapped to all kinds of
different tasks when not in gaming mode. And this year instead of motorizing these
buttons, this rising action is done with magnets.

I'm not totally sure how, but I'm sure we'll
figure it out from the inside during the teardown, you know, if it survives that long. Let's talk about the refrigerating cooler
for a second. Getting rid of the excess heat is a task that
every piece of electronics has to deal with. Most smartphones have a passive method of
cooling with heatpipes and vapor chambers. And some have a more active solution like
the dual fans inside of the Legion 2…may he rest in peace. Out of the box, this fun Cooler 2 Pro has
a starting temperature of 73 degrees fahrenheit, and once I get it plugged into an external
power source we instantly get fan movement as well as a digital readout of the cooler's
temperature. And within seconds we've already dropped 20
degrees down to 56 degrees fahrenheit. This is an active cooler on steroids and it's
surprisingly inexpensive. Last year's version only cost like 40 dollars
right now.

We'll leave this over here on the side to
see how cold it can really get while we start testing this Black Shark 4, starting with
the scratch test. Xiaomi is nice enough to include a built in
screen protector on the Black Shark 4. We'll rip that off and test the surface underneath. As we know, plastic screens will start scratching
a level 2 or 3. Glass will start scratching at 5 or 6. And sapphire screens will start scratching
at level 8 or 9. And as we can see from the Black Shark 4,
it's made with tempered glass since we get scratches starting at level 6, with deeper
grooves starting at level 7.

We haven't run across a plastic screen in
a while. Our refrigerated cooler is still over there
just chilling, now down to 0 degrees celsius. My laser temperature thermometer is showing
about 38 Fahrenheit which is about 3 degrees celsius. So it looks like there is a few degrees of
discrepancy, but it could also just be that the internal thermas location is closer to
the cooler than my laser is. Either way, it's still pretty impressive. Let's keep going. The Black Shark 4 does have a tiny hole punch
cut out in the screen for that 20 pixel selfie camera, and dual stereo speakers. The earpiece is covered with a plastic grill
that won't be coming off on it's own. The side magnetic popup buttons are also made
from metal, along with the textured switch that activates the rising. The buttons seem solid and can't be pried
out, or damaged with hammering, which is good news.

The rest of the frame is also metal. The side mounted fingerprint reading power
button is scratchable, but we'll get to that more in a second. The top of the phone is pretty empty. Then we have the dual SIM card tray and volume
rocker on the left side, both of which are made from metal. The SIM card tray does not include any expandable
memory. However, the bottom of the phone does have
a USB-C and a little friend, the headphone jack. Another example of an inexpensive phone to
rival with more features than the expensive ones. When I first pulled the Black Shark 4 out
of the box, I just assumed the black panel was glass. Turns out though, it's not. It's fine with me though. Art Class with Jerry is back in session. the fun cooler is now in the negative digits
– just below freezing. And here on the back of the Black Shark 4
we now have a tooth.

Pretty accurately sized for a Great White
Shark, you know, the massive sharks currently swimming around in the ocean today. I drew a Great White tooth because if I were
to draw an extinct Megalodon tooth it wouldn't fit since the largest Megladon tooth ever
found is about 7 inches long, and would disappear off the top and bottom of the plastic panel. How's that for freaky. The Black Shark 4 has 3 rear cameras: the
main 48 megapixel sensor, then we have an 8 megapixel wide angle in the middle, followed
by a 5 megapixel depth sensor all tucked up under the same piece of glass. With our freezer over there as cold as ice,
it's only fair to bring some heat from the opposite end of the temperature spectrum. This guy has a 6.6 inch 1080p display, with
a 144 hertz refresh rate, and a 720 hertz touch sampling rate.

Pretty similar to that Legion Dual 2. This Black Shark 4's AMOLED display lasted
about 25 seconds under the heat from my lighter before going white, but eventually did recover. Before we check out that icicle of a cooler,
let's test the side mounted fingerprint scanner. This has already been scratched so it did
take a little longer than normal to set up my fingerprint since it was damaged. But I'll be honest, I think I prefer this
side mounted setup on the power button more than I do the under display sensors since
if it doesn't register my fingerprint or my fingers are wet or dirty, my finger is already
on the power button and just makes unlocking the phone that much faster.

I wish more smartphones did it this way. Finally, let's see how this refrigerated cooler
works from the inside. Black Shark is calling this the Fun Cooler
2. We had it down to about negative 1 degree
celsius when all by itself. Clipping it to a warm phone brings it up to
about 3 degrees celsius, but that's still like playing with your phone inside of a refrigerator. Pretty much guaranteed to keep things cool
and would allow the internal processor to be pushed far beyond its normal capacity.

There are 3 screws underneath the fan grill,
and then we have a thin piece of black rubber, which probably helps keep the plastic back
of the phone protected from the metal copper layer of the cooler. There are 4 screws holding that bottom copper
to the fan. Black Shark is using a thermal electric cooler
inside of this thing, sometimes called a Peltier Cooler since that's the guy who came up with
it back in the 1830's. Little did he know though that people would
be using his tech to more efficiently throw Angry Birds at pigs on their smartphones. Welcome to the future. The internal board components are covered
with a thick rubber waterproofing layer. Since the super low temperature differences
can literally form ice inside of here in humid environments, and you might think that this
metal part and these metal fins are for the phone, but this is actually made for the backside
of the Peltier Cooler since the far side of the white freezer chip gets hotter as the
side facing the phone gets colder.

We can see this in action as I plug in the
disassembled cooler and remove the freezer chip from the backside of the heatsink without
the fan and metal cooler to help get rid of that heat that the Peltier Cooler is producing,
it can get up into the 150 degree range before it gets too hot to touch. It's pretty cool technology. Even cooler is that this pretty much fits
any phone, not just the Black Shark 4. Peltier chips can also be used to generate
the electricity when placed in extreme temperature situations, but that's an experiment for a
different video. It's time to see how well the Black Shark
4, with it's plastic back and popup triggers can handle the bend test. I'm kind of nervous since the last two gaming
phones didn't survive. But with a bend from the back, the phone does
flex, then locks out and does not break.

When flipped over and bent from the front,
we do get a subtle bend and the screen shrinks down into one-handed mode, but nothing is
catastrophically broken. It's kind of nice having a phone survive again. It bends the most right above the power button
so I imagine that's where the battery and motherboard meet up inside of the device. But we won't know for sure until the teardown. I'm looking forward to this one. Not bad for a $500 gaming phone. You just make sure you keep an eye out for
all the saltwater Megalodons when you're out in the ocean.

Speaking of the ocean…Like I mentioned earlier,
Omaze is a company that works with creators to provide experiences and work with nonprofits. And for each donation made, you get entered
to win super large prizes. In this particular case it's a custom Tesla
Model S, and $20,000. Samantha W. won the Tesla Model 3 Performance
in the last dream house giveaway. The nonprofit we are supporting is called
Give Power. There are over 2.2 billion people on the earth
that don't have access to clean water, and Give Power is able to provide electricity
and clean water to those people who need it.

Give Power is also able to pull salt out of
the ocean to make clean drinking water for humans, animals, and plants. It's pretty cool technology. So for your chance to win the custom Tesla
Model S and $20,000 in cash, just head to to enter for your chance to
win. Huge thanks to Omaze for putting this on,
bringing awareness to Give Power and making things a little more interesting for people
who decide to donate. Do you think the Black Shark 4 is going to
be as complicated to open as the Black Shark 3? Let me know down in the comments. Hit that subscribe button if you haven't already. Come hang out with me on Instagram and Twitter. And thanks a ton for watching. I'll see you around.

Camping Mode on Your Smartphone? Scouting and your Mobile or Cell Phone

I don't know about you… but, I just
can't stand it when I'm in… interrupted by [ ♫ ] Hey ScouterStan, I want to talk a little bit about cell phones. Cell phones I like
to put them on the “Camp Mode” which is airplane mode. I think in some phones, but
we have to think about these things. there are “marvels”. I'll admit that I
have a cell phone. I've had one for years and it is critical that we think about
a way in Scouting to make them less intrusive to Scouting. I'll tell you
these things are amazing. They have their pocket computers. That's really what they

They have the entire Internet right there in the phone. It's amazing they're
a communicator. You can not only voice but you could do text, you could do email.
You do all those kinds of things. That's pretty amazing… It's an
entertainment consult for a lot of People. Gaming, video streaming, all that
Stuff. In fact, 80% of you are watching me right now through your phone! That's…
that's a YouTube statistic on this Channel… On our community. That's 80% of
you are watching us watching me on your Phone. That's another big thing there
digital cameras. They've got a studio built into the phone. Where you can do
video and camera effects and all that kind of stuff.

This it is the number one
device used for any social media. Whether it be, you know, the Facebook or the you
name it. I mean it's all appliable to the cell phone. No wonder these things
are addictive. They can be very intrusive to modern living. Now on
Scouting but they can be rather Intrusive. Ever been “google” checked?
That's when you were giving a presentation and somebody looks up one of the facts
that you've stated. On google, and google yeah, you know there's a thousand hits on
everything you put every word… You put in There, you can get a thousand different
things and a lot of it can be Contradictory.

When you get google
checked basically they're checking up on your credibility. You can do it on their
phone. It can be very disruptive. Have you ever heard of “Nomophobia”? That's when you
have no mobile phone and you kind of just freak out… You know there are some
people that are addicted to these marvel of electronics and they can go through
some withdrawals and that can be rather Dramatic. FOMO is another effect. I never
knew what that was, but it's the “Fear Of Missing Out” I had no idea. Okay, you know
how often do people have to check their phone? On a constant basis, because of FOMO.
Obviously, we need to work something out for Scouting. Scouting needs to be a safe
Place, in a way that we can help America's youth kind of break that bad
habit of the cell phone.

We need to offer a solution to that… I would
recommend that all meetings, ceremonies and even camping should be cell phone or
“phone free” events. Phone free zones… Adults should be made,… or asked, not made. But
asked nicely if they would either turn their phone completely off or completely
silencing the phone. Take all of its notifications… Some buzzing sounds can be
actually quite annoying… I know that adults use it as an alarm
clock. That's a pretty common thing, but we need to keep that down to a minimum.
There's nothing worse than doing a flag ceremony while two people in the
audience have their cell phones playing some jingle… Okay that could be quite
annoying and disruptive to the entire Meeting. So ask adults to silence their phones or put it in “Camp Mode” as I call it… Which
is the off button! That's what it is… It's the off button or even you know
“Travel Mode” which turns off all the Notification.

Now these policies that you
can put together for your Troop… Kind of go along with the Scout Law and the
Outdoor Code. In the Scout Law… Scouts are or a Scout IS Courteous. A Scout IS Kind.
Okay… This was silencing your phone is a great
way to keep from interrupting and being kind to your fellow Scouts and leaders.
Obedient, you have a policy that you have with your unit follow it, obey it. You
Know… Obediently be obedient. Scout is Obedient
towards those policy, and it's a great policy in the Outdoor Code. There's a
line in the Outdoor Code, that actually Reads… “Be courteous in the outdoors”.
So when you're outdoors, we don't want to hear beep, beep, beep or some jingle. We
want to enjoy the birds chirping. We want to hear the deer in the brush.

Okay… We
want to see these things and experience them without beeping and jingles. Again…
Adults need to silence their phones. That's just simple, put it in camp mode,
which is off… And “Be the example and not the exception.” When the youth see
the adults not obeying the rules. There is no reason for them not to miss
use the cell phone. So that's very important. Some Scout units will actually
go through that process. It's ok to have it on in the car the bus on the way to a
Camp, but when they get there they actually take all of the cell phones and
the game thingies and all that stuff and they lock them up. Make sure they're
there off… But they'll lock them up.

So that they don't get lost and they're not
used for distracted purposes. You're at camp, you paid to be there.
Take advantage of that! Go and have Fun!… I don't know? TALK to your
Scouts? You know. See nature, be… Don't be… Be, you know. They got
their nose stuck right in that phone most of the time wish it's not there
then they have to think outside that box.

The box in their hand. So that's
important of course once the Scouting event is over and they get back on the
into the cars or the bus… They're all given their phones. There are some
Exceptions… Some Troops, when they go to a summer camp. The Scout will have
signed up for cinematography or moviemaking merit badge. They may need
their cell phone because the cell phone has that built into it. I would recommend
that the Scout, that signs up for those merit badges should bring a camera. A
dedicated camera or movie camera for that purpose. Not rely completely on the
cell phone. Cell phones have a lower resolution than most of the standard
cameras that are out there.

That being the case they may need to check them in
and out from an adult in the troop. They can do their merit badge. That's
something to think about. Here's a big point. Most summer camps are
very remote. They're out in the mountains or they're on the coast or they're out
in places that have very poor cell Services. Okay, that's not normally a huge.
So you're not going to be able to surf the Internet. You're not going to be
able to make phone calls. Even so, in some places it is still important that adult
leaders have a cell phone available. Especially if they're going out on an
excursion or something. So they can contact other adult leaders, but that's

I mean there's no need for the cell
Phone. later on. I do not recommend using cell phones or even the Scouts cell phone,
to help with homesickness. Sometimes the Scout will beg to talk to his parents or
his or her parents. I find that really becomes more… It just increases
and overemphasizes the homesickness… It makes it worse, so that I don't recommend
using cell phones for that, but it's important to have policies for your
Meetings. Your ceremonies and all of your camping dealing with cell phones. It can
be their blessing they could do a lot. But they can disrupt, and they can be
Distracting. So as adult leaders we need to come up with some policies and
procedures within your unit, that you all can agree on that it makes it less of
a burden.

Technology is a wonderful thing. I love it. I'm talking to you probably
through your cell phone. [Laughter] That's the wonderful thing about
Technology. We need to use technology. Now let technology take over us… Okay we need
to use that technology appropriately and I know you will. As an adult leader
you're doing the good job. Keep it up and I will see you on the trail..

The Worlds Most Waterproof Smart Phone! – Teardown

today we're going to be taking apart a sapphire covered smartphone sapphire is a super rare almost scratch-proof material with a hardness level right up there next to diamonds and as you can tell this is real sapphire you could say it's ice [Music] quick tip you've probably seen one of these diamond testers on tick tock and while they are really good at testing for gemstones and diamonds they are very easy to manipulate for example if you see someone with their finger on the dial while they're testing something there's a good chance that what they're testing is fake my own smartphone does not have a sapphire screen and if i test it the sensor doesn't beep it doesn't do anything but if i put my finger on the dial and adjust the sensitivity while it's not touching anything it might seem as if my own smartphone has sapphire and this works with gemstones and other precious diamonds and stuff but if we go back to the kyocera my finger is not on the dial and we can tell this is indeed the real deal now you can protect yourself from any funny business you know who else likes to protect people from funny business bitdefender huge thanks to bitdefender for sponsoring this video bitdefender is a cyber security leader delivering best-in-class prevention protection and response solutions worldwide bitdefender offers protection and privacy without compromising your device's

that works because bitdefender can be utilized across multiple platforms simultaneously platforms meaning different systems like pcs macs androids and iphone bitdefender also comes with a vpn and monitors online threats in real time and to sweeten the whole deal new users get a 4 month free trial of bitdefender total security i'll put that link down in the video description protection is always a good thing and it's better to have it before you need it i'll have that link down below with how rugged this duraforce ultra is it should be difficult to take apart but will also be different than anything we've ever seen let's get started [Applause] [Music] it's kind of refreshing to have a super rugged phone on the table especially after having three phones break in half this year but being ultra rugged might make it more difficult to open up the sapphire on top is basically unscratchable which is busting and the phone itself is water resistant to 2 meters and has water damage covered under warranty which pretty much no other smartphone brand does kyocera even calls it waterproof in their advertising instead of water resistant which is something else no other manufacturer is doing with two screws removed and my razor blade pulling off the back middle panel we start seeing more internal silver screws 12 to be exact the bottom gold contact points are to attach other accessories and docks that kyocera makes with the first round of screws removed we can start popping off the thick plastic and rubber side bumpers this is what protects the phone and the hard sapphire from drops like a built-on case that's engineered to withstand 5-foot drops onto concrete removing the side and in bumpers reveals a few things like some pretty cool looking gold antenna lines molded into the plastic and 18 more screws that's 32 screws total for people trying to keep track back at home but check this out separating the two halves of the duraforce ultra 5g reveals the most intense water protection that we've ever seen inside of a cell phone a sticky rubber gasket inlaid into a groove all around the edges kyocera isn't messing around the last time we saw something this intense was when we took apart an underwater drone designed to film and operate 100 feet under water apparently the sticky hand technology is useful for more things than just getting stuck on the ceiling it can also keep phones watertight the other half of the phone contains the electronics we have the 5g antennas one at the top and either side of the phone then the wireless charger sitting on top of a hard battery it's plugged in just like a little lego kyocera is using hard plastic for the battery which is something we haven't seen in a while probably because it's more durable than the thinner pouch-style batteries it also might have something to do with being certified non-incentive class 1 division 2 which is a requirement for jobs where explosive concentration of flammable gases might exist i do hope they pay extra for a job where using a regular phone might get you exploded the battery is 4500 milliamp hours and has the wireless charging permanently glued to the top we have two more screws holding down two massive speakers on the bottom of the phone i'll unplug each of their connections and lift it up and out of the phone with the usbc charger these speakers are huge and they aren't even in boxes no balls needed with woofers this large and then we have the charging port with its own red rubber ring which further assists the ingress protection everything including the rear cameras still seem to be permanently attached to the motherboard so i'll pull out another five screws bringing our total up to 38 then we can unplug some latch style connectors and remove the expandable memory and sim card tray so we can pull the whole motherboard up and out of the phone the cameras are tiny little guys and none of them have the optical image stabilization which is kind of strange you would think someone working underneath an active spacex launch would want some pictures everything else is pretty chill the sapphire screen is embedded into the plastic frame like we see most other phones doing with their glass screens just kyocera has some next level robustness the little latches protecting the headphone jack and charging port just have little plastic tails held in place with the stopper the duraforce ultra 5g definitely isn't the thinnest or sleekest looking phone on the market but it's built for a job and from my perspective looks like it's very proficient at the job it was built for and the repair ability isn't that bad either everything is just held in place by screws like it was back in the good old days before heat guns were required since mine has been taken apart i wouldn't consider it waterproof anymore and i'll probably never get this sticky hand of a gasket back into its correct location but it's still a pretty cool system that kyocera has implemented in their phone one last little tidbit most phones have super fine threads on their itty bitty screws like the one on the right from inside the carbon fiber phone but kyocera is over here using some very aggressive coarse thread this allows for more plastic to sit in between the threads and gives us less of a probability for the tiny screw to strip out of its hole and well there are 30 of them back here so combine the 30 screws with the coarse thread and i think things are pretty well held together with the bottom sides and top body armor pieces back on the phone we can get the back plate situated and it's time to turn things on and everything works this guy is basically scratch proof drop proof waterproof and explosion resistant if every phone was built like this it would probably put me out of a job nice work kyocera let me know down in the comments which of these features you'd like to see implemented in your own phone share this video with someone who's always breaking their device and then come hang out with me on instagram and twitter thanks for watching i'll see you around

OnePlus Nord 2 5G Unboxing And First Impressions ⚡ Dimensity 1200, 90Hz AMOLED, 50MP Camera & More

The much awaited OnePlus Nord 2 is here. After a long time OnePlus seems to be back with a Flagship Killer. OnePlus made its name as Flagship Killer & this time we have the OnePlus Nord 2(successor of the OnePlus Nord).
When it comes to performance, battery & a lot other things, it’s a huge leap.
This is the 1st phone to come with OPPO-OnePlus integrated code based OS. There are many new things in the OnePlus Nord 2 & we’re going to unbox it & give its first impressions. We’ll tell you all about it & I’m really hoping it comes close to the Flagship territory. It comes with a black box with NORD written on it. Box Contents – Upfront you get the phone & there’s Nord’s signature blue colour. There’s documentation with stickers, red cable membership card, quick start guide & safety information. There’s a sim card tool, a Type C cable in signature red & a 65W Warp Charge fast charger.
There’s a good quality case which we’ll put on OnePlus Nord 2
Looks – Should I call it OnePlus Nord 2 or OnePlus 9 Lite because it’s very similar to OnePlus 9.
It looks familiar with 2 big sensors on the OnePlus Nord 2.

This is Haze Blue color, you get Grey Sierra & Green Wood color options too.
In Hand Feel – It feels slightly hefty & is a little on the heavy side, but it’s built very well.
It feels premium, fits well in the hand & it also looks close to a flagship phone.
Build Quality – The case is good & bulky but it looks nice with the case [Drop Test] The case is good so it wouldn’t matter even if I drop it harder.
It comes with a preinstalled scratch guard , so I’ll take it out.
The in hand feel is not the best nor the worst, but feels good & it’ll feel big with small hands.

Let’s weigh, I think it’ll be close to 200g. It is 189g! Maybe, I thought it’s heavier because of the heft.
And the weight distribution is ok, it’s not bad at all.
There’s glass both on the front & back. We aren’t sure of the Gorilla Glass version & the frame is plastic. Ports & Buttons – Below, there’s a speaker grill, a USB Type C port, a microphone & sim card tray.
On the left, you get volume rocker(up & down).

And the buttons are solid & clicky. There’s a noise cancelling mic on top. On the right, there’s the alert slider with the power button below. The sim card tray has a dual nano sim card slot & there’s no expandable storage. Let’s start the phone & while you’re enjoying our unboxing, do hit LIKE, SHARE & SUBSCRIBE! Display – It’s a typical OnePlus display with 6.43” Super AMOLED with 90Hz fast refresh rate & HDR10 support. There’s no exact screen-to-body ratio but the top & side bezels are thin & the chin is smaller than average. Specifications – It has MediaTek Dimensity 1200 5G SoC which is based on 6Nm fabricated technology. There are 3 variants : 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB & we have 12GB+256GB top variant.
Good thing, it has UFS 3.1 storage type making good read-write speeds & has LPDDR4X RAM type. Performance – It’s the successor of the OnePlus Nord which had Qualcomm SD 765G SoC. And if I compare it with Dimensity 1200’s AnTuTu Score, the performance has nearly doubled! The AnTuTu Score on this 12+256GB variant is around 6.87L which is a big jump.
The AnTuTu Score on SD 765G was around 4L.

And Dimensity 1200 clearly has a big jump.
Battery – It has a 4500mAh battery with 65W Warp charging & battery capacity is big compared to 4115mAh on OnePlus Nord.
The 4500mAh battery will charge 0-100% in 30 minutes. Overall, a great upgrade in battery & performance.
OS UI – It’s my favourite clean OxygenOS & having 90Hz fast refresh makes overall scrolling & animations smoother.
But due to the integrated code base, the camera UI is from ColorOS.
Being a daily OnePlus user, it looks a little out of place. There are 2-3 things added from ColorOS. In the battery section, you’ll get a high performance mode. Looks like ColorOS is creeping into OxygenUI. The thing missing from ColorOS is the level of customization of AOD, which would’ve a welcome feature. So I’d say it's a mixed bag of OxygenOS. For regular usage there wouldn’t be a problem.

Especially, you’ll have fun using it with Dimensity 1200 & UFS 3.1. You can play games with high-very high & HDR settings. We played for a long time & it was fun & smooth. Camera – The OnePlus Nord had a quad camera setup (48MP+8MP+5MP+2MP). This one has a 50MP+8MP+2MP(triple camera). The 50MP sensor is an IMX766 Sony sensor. On the front, there’s a 32MP selfie sensor.

And looking at the photos, the IMX766 sensor works well.
But when you move to Ultrawide, it lacks sharpness & results in softer images.
Even the selfies’ the colors & dynamic range is good. Let us know what you think in the comments. The 50MP sensor works very well. Surprisingly, the video quality options are downgraded compared to the Nord. With rear camera, you’d be able to take [email protected] which was possible with the OnePlus Nord
but with the 32MP front camera in Nord, you were able to shoot [email protected] videos.

In the Nord 2 there isn’t any support for 4K, but maybe with updates it’ll be available. Sensors – All sensors are available, in-display fingerprint sensor & face unlock both work fast & are reliable.
Connectivity – It’s excellent as you get 5G with 11 band support which is a benefit of Dimensity processors. You get more band support(11 bands) with dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi Calling, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 & NFC support.
We tried testing carrier aggregation but there’s some issue with Dimensity 1200, so I’m not sure if it’s there.
Multimedia – It's bright AMOLED screen is great & the viewing angles are also good. You get stereo speakers, one below & another in the ear piece above, which are good & loud. You’ll get a flagship multimedia experience on the Nord 2. And there is no 3.5mm jack.
Features – You get Camera2api support, so you can use GCam, there’s Widevine L1 for HD streaming..
