Are Gaming Phones A Ripoff?

Hello everyone, I’m Dave 2D In this video, talk about gaming phones, and whether you should buy them Because different companies have different gaming phones In front of me, there are three gaming phones Razer Phone 2, Asus’ ROG Phone, and Xiaomi’s Black Shark Phone 2 Are all released this fall, the new game phone If you are considering buying one, maybe one of these three is suitable for you There are also gaming phones made by less well-known companies But if you want to buy, I suggest choosing from these three Next, we will talk about what I like, what I don’t like, and whether or not I should buy a gaming phone. First of all, the configuration is different All use Snapdragon 845, strong performance and enlarged screen But they are heavy and not cheap The cheapest is Xiaomi’s Black Shark 2, but it still costs 550$-600$ What distinguishes them from the flagship machine is the screen High refresh rate screen This is the real and original difference between gaming phones and other phones When gaming phones first appeared last year, they were equipped with high refresh rate screens. The benefits of a high refresh rate screen are hard to say in the video, especially when the video is recorded at a standard of 24 frames.

I’ve seen it with my own eyes, it’s really smooth I just picked up the Razer phone and played with the 120Hz screen and immediately felt the difference I'm afraid someone will ask, mention that the 120Hz of Razer phones is indeed a bit smoother than the 90Hz of ROG phones. But not every game supports high frame rate, some popular games are locked at 60 or even 30 frames ROG phones have the highest screen brightness AMOLED screen, the picture is clean and bright, the brightness is obviously better than the Razer phone 2 The screen of Razer Phone 2 has been improved compared to the previous model. The screen of 1 is very dark. It is better this year, but it still does not meet my expectations. Another point, Razer Phone 2 once again supports Netflix HDR However, the actual look and feel is not so good Netflix's HDR video is very dark on the Razer phone 2, especially in a well-lit environment The picture details in HDR mode are definitely better For example, the details of the bright area are significantly better on the Razer phone 2.

But the overall brightness is really too low. Really need a very bright screen to give full play to the power of HDR. HDR is like that And Razer phone 2 is not bright enough ROG phone's screen is brighter Even though it doesn’t have HDR certification, I think most people would prefer the screen of ROG phones to the Razer phone 2. Even if the details of the picture in the bright place are lost, it is because the screen of the ROG phone is really bright The screen of the Black Shark phone 2 is relatively ordinary, the ordinary 60Hz screen but the look and feel is still great The exterior design is quite different.

Personally, I like the design of ROG phones the most. I think it’s the most unique design. I really like the etched lines on the back glass, the copper color elements and it’s great Razer phones look more square, still the design style of Nextbit Compared with the first generation, the second generation glass back cover makes it more high-end But still very square Black Shark 2 is less distinctive It's not ugly, but the appearance is very ordinary, not as iconic as the first two Although these three are all gaming phones, only ROG is equipped with a headphone jack Let me say that any gaming device, especially mobile phones, should have a headphone jack Any gaming device in 2018 should have But for some reason, both Razer 2 and Black Shark 2 need adapters. Maybe this is the trend in 2018. Speaking of ergonomic design, none of the three models are very comfortable to hold. In terms of long-term gaming, Razer phones have the worst experience If you hold it for a long time, the edges and corners of the phone will be very scratchy.

Compared to GBA or NS, the other two are also general GBA and NS are designed to adapt to the palm But these are mobile phones. They are so thin that they can’t hold them very well. I’d like to say that Black Shark 2 is better than the other two, but it’s average Ok light All three mobile phones have a backlit logo, you can use software to control the color or something I have seen the backlight logo on other gaming peripherals or notebooks Now finally on the phone But mobile phones and peripherals are a little different I have said in many videos The lights on peripherals and laptops can be used for fun, but the freshness will soon disappear I don’t know why, I like the lights on my phone very much You can customize the color of the logo In 2018, this is very fresh This makes your phone instantly different For example, there is a blue logo, which I like very much Make your phone look different And the mobile phone is my personal item, so this kind of customization ability is great I think the lights of Razer and ROG are great ROG has the largest light area, so I think it’s the best There are also lights on the side of the Black Shark 2, but it’s a bit redundant on the phone OK, the speakers of the three mobile phones are all front So the probability of covering the microphone is reduced when playing games, good thing The volume is full, but in terms of sound quality, Asus is the best Razer 2 is close behind, while Black Shark 2 is slightly behind, ranking third Good performance, the performance of all three mobile phones is very strong, Snapdragon 845 ROG mobile phones are packed with chips in the box, which means that ASUS deliberately selects the strongest performance in the same batch to use The highest frequency can be up to 2.96GHz instead of the ordinary 2.8 There is indeed a gap in the running time, but it is not obvious Playing games makes you even less aware of the gap Mobile games are very strong The battery capacity of the three is the same, all are 4000mAh Black Shark 2 consumes the fastest power, I don’t know if it’s a software problem, because this phone is not a mass production version Camera, let’s talk quickly Very average Razer Phone 2 may be the best of the three The resolution is the highest, and the dark details are better than ROG phones But compared to Pixel and iPhone, it’s really incomparable Finally, I want to talk about a unique function of ROG, the air trigger To those who don’t know is to put a sensor in the frame of the phone, you can perceive it by pressing it Like the console game controller, there are L2, R2, L1, R1 The air trigger simulates these buttons instead of real physical buttons The essence is the sensor in the middle frame Look directly, this idea is great The first time I heard and tried it was in Taiwan, I felt great But after trying ROG phones for a while, I found some limitations 1.

A little delay It will take a while after pressing If you bind it to an important function, such as shooting Then you definitely don’t want to delay, you have to fire immediately after aiming See the enemy, aim, press the trigger, fire But the processing time of those few milliseconds is annoying It is very convenient if it is bound to less important functions But a very important function, I will not tie it to the trigger Another point I noticed is that the maximum sensitivity did not meet my requirements. I want it to react when touched But you have to press hard, deliberately This again makes it less convenient It's not a bad thing Very inconspicuous, you can’t even see that there is a trigger here I think it can be solved in software, but now it’s cool, but not practical enough Another point, the vibration motor on ROG mobile phone is very powerful I have felt it, the strongest vibration motor on the phone If you like that tactile feedback, then it can satisfy you Vibration motors can also be used in games, if any games are used, it’s also great ROG mobile phone also has an accessory, which is a fan for heat dissipation.

I have used it for a while and it feels like a fancy thing It's not completely useless, it can dissipate heat, but it has no effect on performance In the running score and stress test with and without fans, I get the same results Maybe it’s useful if you play games for hours But in my personal test, it didn’t work. Razer phones have an optional wireless charger, which I like very much There are lights, it is annoying at night, you can turn it off But it has two forms, the form is placed flat, the phone is placed flat on top There is also a stand shape, which can be charged while watching a show, which is very cool Black Shark 2 comes with a handle that can be stuck on the phone case to make the gaming experience more ergonomically comfortable Connect via Bluetooth, no wire required I like this little accessory You can buy such an accessory on any mobile phone, but Xiaomi comes with it, which is great Okay, summary Are these phones worth buying? They are not cheap Gaming phones, definitely considered high-end products I found that Razer Phone 2 is the most balanced The 120Hz screen is great, the system UI, some games can make full use of the screen The sound quality of the speakers is full, the lighting is cool, and the camera is improved compared to the previous generation My opinion, even if you never play games on your phone This is also a great phone The user experience itself is great, if you still play games, it’s even more important As for ASUS ROG phones, it doesn’t feel so comprehensive.

Definitely a mobile phone for players If you don’t play games at all, I don’t recommend buying it Many of its features, including accessories, are to enhance the gaming experience But if you are a player and you can use these features, then it is great, especially its screen is very good Black Shark 2, the cheapest, but if you are in North America, it may be more difficult to buy it But considering its game feel and accessories, it is also a good choice But unless you don’t care about the camera performance at all, don’t buy these phones Because it costs 600$ to 900$ to buy them, you can easily buy other phones with much better cameras at this price.

If you care about cameras, don’t buy gaming phones If you really like the RGB backlight logo (To be honest, it’s really cool) Then you can buy one I hope you like this video. If you like it, please like and subscribe to the one-stop one-stop service. See you in the next issue~.

The Best Gaming Phone Is…

– Hey, guys, this is Austin. Between the ROG Phone
and the Razer Phone 2, 2018 is shaping up to be an awesome year for gaming smartphones. So with both of them on
the desk at the same time, why, I think a good old-fashioned
comparison is in order. First up we have the Razer Phone 2. Now, a couple weeks ago, we were able to get our hands on this, but it was a very brief hands-on, whereas this, this is going to be a little bit more of an in-depth feature comparison
review gaming benchmark. Are there other words
I can put in the title? Do you see how shiny this glass is? It'll never be this shiny again the second I put my
dirty fingerprints on it. Not only do we have a fast
charger included in the box, something that a certain
fruit-themed company might want to take note on, but we also have a series
of cables and dongles. But what's actually kind of interesting about the Razer Phone is that we have a USB-C headphone adapter. Now this might not sound impressive. In fact, it's included on most phones that don't have a headphone jack, which is basically
everything at this point.

But this actually does
support full hi-fi audio and supposedly has a
pretty good DAC inside. Next up we have the ROG Phone, and I actually don't
know to open this box. (Velcro crackling) Oh, wow, okay, that's,
all right, that's a box. All right. (chuckling) First up, we have the phone itself. So the ROG Phone's kind of unique in that not only does it have a USB-C and a headphone jack on the bottom, but it has two more USB-Cs on the side which are meant for accessories. So the last time I tried the ROG Phone, it was still a fairly early prototype, and I've gotta say, immediately,
this feels really nice.

We do have that, actually, is that aluminum? That's gotta be aluminum. It's incredibly heavy, though, wow. It really feels nice, and it's got such a heft in the hand, and unlike the Razer Phone, which is basically a
giant squared-off brick, this is much more rounded and a little bit more of
a hand-friendly shape. Something unique about the ROG Phone is that unlike basically every
other gaming phone out there, there's a wide range of accessories that are either included in
the box such as this fan, or other things that'll
be available for purchase.

You know what I feel like right now? I feel like ROG is trying to make the ultimate ROG Phone, right? Like, when we do Building the Ultimate, we try to find the ridiculous
and crazy accessories, but they're just selling
all of the accessories. You could literally
get everything you need to build the ultimate ROG
Phone straight from the store. Not only does it have the RGB, but it also has a fan,
USB-C, headphone jack, all that stuff, which is
rearranged to the bottom. This is cool. I really appreciate that
they put this in the box. I don't want to get too
into the dock right now, but the idea is that when
you're using the phone in landscape mode, your hand
is naturally covering up not only the headphone
jack but also the USB-C, so in addition to be able to
get a little bit of cooling, you also have those ports
on the bottom of the phone so you can easily plug it
in, plug your headphones in, and you won't get in
the way of your hands. (box thumping) Wait, what'd you, what are you doing? A Black Shark? Wait, are you trying to add another phone to the comparison in
the middle of the video? "You're Gamer, Let's Shark!" Oh boy, this looks exciting.

What's the deal with this? Oh. Oh, this is not the
original Black Shark at all. Okay, this is an unprecedented move in that there's a brand-new
unreleased smartphone on my desk and I literally
don't know anything about it, except that it looks kind of cool! That's something to know about it, right? So it's got a kind of combination
of aluminum on the sides but it still does have
that glass back panel, and I'm assuming that looks
kind of like an RGB logo? Oh, wow, that's quite the gamer skin, and, oh yeah, we do have
a RGB logo on the back. I like how we have this great comparison: look, it's the ROG Phone
versus the Razer Phone. It all makes sense. And now, I'm like, wait a minute, there's this totally new phone
that I have no idea about. I have to figure it out on the fly.

This is cool, though. I guess they've definitely
upped the RGB game. I mean, that's a look right there. So it looks like you
can individually change not only the logo color, but also the little Shark
Mode thing on the side. "By pressing the Shark button, "your phone will become a game console." What, a game console? In a smartphone? That's crazy! So after spending some
time with the Black Shark, a few things come to mind. First of all and probably the
most important for the video is that this is not a final phone and it's certainly not final software. There's definitely some tweaks that are going to need to go
on before this is released. And also, a lot of the
benchmarks and stuff don't even work yet, so
we're gonna take some of this with a grain of salt. There's also the controller, which actually doesn't
attach to the phone.

It attaches to the case
that comes with the phone, so it's maybe not the most
elegant way of doing it, but it's sort of like you
would expect with a Joy-Con. The only problem is that the controller only works wirelessly, so even though you can slide
it on, something like this, it actually doesn't attach with any kind of wires or whatever, so you still need to separately charge not only the controller
but the phone itself. The big problem is that this
is a Chinese market phone, which means that here
in the United States, well, it doesn't have
the Google Play store, or any kind of Google apps at all. Now there will be a global
version of this phone, and hopefully that will include, you know, the fundamental apps that you
would expect like YouTube, but for now, it's kind of
hard to get apps on this, unless of course you wanna play a little bit of Fortnite by chance.

All three phones have the very familiar Snapdragon 845 inside. So the ROG is slightly clocked higher, but the main difference between the three is that the Black Shark has an optional 10 gigabyte of RAM option, whereas the others only top out at a measly eight gigs of memory. Coincidentally, they all
have the exact same size 4,000-milliamp hour battery, which is a good thing for gaming, but from here, the
differences start to stand out just a little bit more. The first big difference is with displays. The Black Shark has a
perfectly respectable six-inch 2160x1080p panel. It's good but nothing spectacular, especially when you compare it to both the ROG Phone as
well as the Razer Phone. Move over to the ROG Phone, and while it does have that same size as well as resolution of the Black Shark, it is an OLED panel
running at a full 90 Hertz.

Now as far as I know,
this is the first time that any phone has hit 90
Hertz with an OLED panel. The Razer Phone has a slightly
smaller 5.7-inch display, but it is a much higher
resolution at 2560×1440, and importantly, it runs at a whopping 120 hurt refresh rate. Hertz, not hurt. It doesn't hurt to refresh,
it Hertz to refresh.

The only real downside is that
this is a very wide phone, specifically when you put it side by side with the Black Shark and the ROG. It's just not quite as
comfortable to hold, but that screen is really
well-optimized for video. Let's talk about these
screens for a second. The ROG Phone has a very
accurate OLED panel, and even though it's not the most well-calibrated thing in the world, it looks nice to the eye. The Razer Phone thankfully
is much, much brighter than the original version
of the Razer Phone. Again, it's not quite 100% there, but it is a lot better than
the previous generation.

And the Black Shark looks nice, but again, it's not quite final, so it's hard to run
any kind of real tests. It looks goods, but I really
feel like the winner here is the ROG just purely based on the looks. Where these phones really shine is with the higher refresh rate, so it's really hard to show on video, but even the 90 Hertz of the ROG Phone really does make a big
difference in small things like scrolling through a
webpage or moving between menus.

It really does seem a lot more fluid, and that definitely does
apply to the Razer Phone. Now, to my eye, I
actually can't really see a major difference between
90 Hertz and 120 Hertz. Theoretically, this is
a little bit smoother, and I will say it looks
maybe a little bit sharper when you're moving between things, but realistically, both these phones are a big step up over the Black Shark, or, well, every other 60
Hertz phone out there, which is basically all of them.

All three have dual front-firing speakers, but there's a clear winner as
far as which one sounds best. – 780-998-9551 Hey, guys, this is Austin. The Microsoft Surface line
has been growing a lot lately, with everything from a desktop all-in-one with the Surface Studio all the way down to the
cheap and tiny Surface Go, there's a lot to like. – I guess the ROG Phone
wins by default here. That's not what I was expecting. So the problem with the Razer Phone is at least with my specific unit, even though it is very
loud and very clear, there's definitely a
little bit of distortion on the very high volume. Something the ROG Phone
definitely does right are the extra features and accessories that come along with it. One of the main ones
is the squeeze feature. This is somewhat to what
you'll find on the Pixel where if I squeeze it, what
happens is it turns into ROG Gaming X Mode. The thing with X Mode is you
actually can customize it to do whatever you want, but I just like going X Mode, not X Mode.

X Mode! It's just kind of fun to do. But it's not only just for show, so if you flip the ROG Phone over, on the top are the AirTriggers. This essentially adds physical controls to the top of the phone, giving it a little bit more
of a controller kind of feel. The way it works is that each of them can be mapped to a specific
button on the screen. The way it works is that
inside the X Mode software, you can adjust the actual
touchpoint of where you want it, so for example, my right trigger is the actual trigger in the game, and my left is to go on to the sights.

You can do it however you
want, but the thing is, this is a really, really nice addition to give you a little bit
more of a physical control on a phone without having to carry around, like, you know, a
controller, or accessories. One downside to the ROG Phone is that this is one of the hottest devices that I've ever tested. Now it doesn't get uncomfortably warm, but after a few minutes of gaming, it does get a little bit toasty, which is where the included fan comes in. So what you do is snap
this on to the USB-C ports on the bottom of the phone. As soon as you clamp it on, not only will the RGB logo light up, but it will start a pretty easy little fan which will cool the back of the phone. Now in testing this doesn't make a massive difference to performance. What it does do is cool
off the back of the phone to make it a lot nicer
for when you're, you know, doing extended Fortnite gaming sessions and not sweating your fingers up.

Can you sweat your fingers up? Is that, I can't say
that, can I, that's weird. So what's the best gaming phone of 2018? Well, I really like a lot
of what Razer has done with the Razer Phone 2. I gotta give it to the ROG Phone. Not only does it have great
performance, it looks nice. It's got a lot of really cool features, but really, what kind of sells this to me over everything else is this
is the first gaming phone that's not only good at gaming, but it's also good at being a phone, and that, that kind of means a lot.

(electronic static) (screen humming) (deep breath) Hey, guys, this is– (electronic music).

Asus ROG Phone vs ROG Phone 2: Better in every way

Asus ROG Phone vs ROG Phone 2: Better in every way

https://www.youtube.com/embed/43ODsE-3BDs

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
