So a company called Blackview released a brand
new phone – for sale right now – that has a full-on projector in the top. Talk about crazy features. Today we're going to be durability testing
the Blackview Max 1 to see if it can handle every day life and see what this projector
is all about. Spoiler alert – the projector is a bit better
than you think it is. Let's get started. [Intro] So obviously, projectors need to be operated
in kind of a dark environment. They're not as bright as say a TV. But with one click, the Max 1 is activated
shooting the projector out the back. And right now we're about 2 meters away and
this is the equivalent of a 45 inch TV, which is incredible, especially since it's coming
out the top of a cell phone.
It's a laser projector with the resolution
of 720p, but it's interesting because you can just take it anywhere. It's in your pocket and you can use it at
a moment's notice where ever you want. Every now and then you might catch a line
in the video you're watching flickering down the projection, but that's only because of
the camera I'm using to film this phone. In real life it doesn't appear when you're
watching the projection. It has something to do with the camera shutter
speed or something like that. Here's another example with a little drone
history video that I made. This was me filming with the DJI Mavic Pro
2 out in the middle of Idaho with the wrecked plane in the woods.
Kind of an interesting video…I'll link that
if you want to take a look at it. It's crazy to me that they fit a laser projector
in the top of this phone, and it's displaying on the wall behind me. Some phone companies are like, oh, we don't
have room for a headphone hack, and then Blackview's over here putting an entire projector. So whether you want to watch movies or play
video games, what's cool about this is that it can actually display whatever's on your
cellphone behind you or on the ceiling of your room as you're using this phone. And it's super funny that Apple produced the
iPod for, you know, $300, and then there's this phone for almost the same price that
has a full fledged projector in it. It just goes to show you that your dollar
goes a much longer way with Android than it does with Apple. Blackview does say that while you're using
the projector, it can project for 5 hours before the battery goes down, which is pretty
impressive. So we've talked a bit about the features,
but you know we're really here to find out if it's durable or not.
Let's start with the scratch test. It's hard to get over how cool this phone
is. Quite possibly one of the coolest, or at least
the most unique phones of 2019. On the Blackview website, the Max 1 is being
sold for $400 with the caveat that it only works in Europe and Asia right now. That might change in the future, of course. But either way, it's pretty cheap. This might come as a surprise to nobody, but
the Blackview Max 1 starts scratching at a level 6 with deeper grooves at a level 7. The earpiece is made from metal with just
one thin row of circles just to let the sound through. There are 2 cameras on the front, both protected
by the front glass, a 16 megapixel front camera with a secondary depth sensor. The right side of the phone is pretty standard
– metal construction with a textured metal power button and a plain metal volume rocker.
The top is where the real party happens. Still all made from metal up here which is
good. But then when I go to analyze the rectangular
opening for the laser projector, it's made from plastic. Yeah, it is recessed below the frame so it
should be protected from scratches most of the time. But since plastic does scratch easier than
glass, special cleaning precautions should be taken when wiping off the surface. The left side of the Max 1 is pretty plain,
minus the removable SIM and SD card tray – huge fan of that.
It's very easy to transfer SD cards full of
movies. The bottom of the phone has a loudspeaker
grill, USB-C port, and no headphone jack. But since they stuffed an entire full projector
into the top of the phone, I think we can make an exception this time around. The back panel is made from glass with the
Blackview logo printed on the underside, which won't scratch off. The camera lens housing is made from metal,
and the circular lens protecting the 16 megapixel sensor is thankfully made from glass.
The fingerprint scanner is scratchable. After some heavy abuse it can still read my
finger, but then when I go to unlock the phone, it does not work every single time. The phone does get a little warm when the
screen is turned on and it's projecting at the same time. Not as warm as when I hold my lighter up to
it of course, but the little device is doing a whole lot of work when it's projecting. Luckily the internal 4680 milliamp hour battery
is there to handle the extra workload. It can supposedly project for 5 hours at a
time. Even after 40 seconds under the flame from
my lighter, nothing was really happening to the 6 inch 1080p AMOLED display…just a yellowish
tinge to the pixels, but they eventually recovered and the yellow tinge went away. To turn the projector on, it's just one click,
and then whatever's on your screen starts popping out the top.
Blackview claims their projector can make
a 200 inch screen, but I think it would be pretty washed out at that point. In a totally dark room, I think about 40 or
50 inches is plenty good enough. Good enough, of course, with the stipulation
that the phone is structural and can handle the abuse of everyday life. When bent from the back, there is no flex
with the phone. It's a pretty thick little guy with over 10
millimeters, which is 3 millimeters thicker than the iPhone 10s, but it definitely doesn't
budge. It's hard to argue with a super thick brick
phone construction. I was honestly getting kind of bored with
the smart phones of 2018, but here in 2019 with all of it's motorized cameras, internal
projectors, and time-of-flight cameras, and super high internal optical zoom cameras,
it's turning out to be a fantastic year for smart phones.
The Blackview Max 1 passes my durability test. It'll be super fun to see what that projector
component looks like from the inside. This phone is just yet another example of
if you want a phone that does cool stuff, you just have to pay less money for it. Would you every use a projector if it came
built-in to your phone? Let me know down in the comments. Hit that subscribe button if you haven't already. I will be taking this thing apart. And come hang out with me on Instagram and

today we're going to durability test the iphone 12 pro and its ceramic shield covered front screen you might have noticed that the box is a little bit smaller this year you know how apple has slowly been removing things with each new product launch first was the headphone jack then the hdmi on their laptops and now it's the charging brick itself that's gone it's always exciting to find out what's going to disappear next apple definitely keeps you on your toes honestly though it's probably a good thing their 5 watt inbox charger was the slowest charger of any phone anywhere and now there's no reason not to upgrade to the faster charging anker nano which costs less while still charging three times faster all while still keeping the same size as the old brick thanks to anker for sponsoring this video now iphone users will get to experience the fast charging that androids have had for years i'll leave a link down in the video description that'll give you a 10 percent discount off the anchor nano because you know if apple isn't going to hook you up anchor for sure will now it's time for the durability test let's get started personally i think it's a bit sus that apple got rid of the free inbox charger at the exact same time they came out with a new type of magnetic charging which conveniently cost forty dollars by the way i'm sure it's all just a coincidence though just like how the headphone jack disappeared at the same time the wireless airpods came out you know totally normal behavior you can see that inside the magnetic circular attachment is a group of coiled wires that transfer power to the other set of coiled wires inside of the phones we'll have to see what those look like for realzy's when we open them up for the teardown video but while we're here on the outside we can see where the magnets are located with some metal shavings the magnets form a perfect circle around the outside of the copper coils thumbs up for that i think it's kind of cool even if you aren't able to keep your credit card and phone in the same pocket anymore it's probably a good idea in general though to keep metal shavings away from your phone if you remember the earpiece and loudspeaker are also both made with magnets so if any small shavings get sucked up inside of the phone it can tear the speakers to shreds i'm sure the ip68 waterproofing will help keep the dust and shavings out but still it's better safe than sorry speaking of being safe rather than sorry apple has stepped up their phone design quite a bit this year with a lot of focus on the screen apple says their new ceramic shield is a step beyond glass but it's also important to listen closely to their carefully structured buzzword-filled sentences apple said they've included nano ceramic crystals within the glass matrix to dramatically improve toughness and yeah they might have found a new way of forming glass to make it tougher but those new crystals are still within a glass matrix which means it's still glass no matter how many other words they add to the sentence and if glass is still glass you know the rest apple doesn't mention much about scratch resistance just drop protection and toughness they also use the phrase along with our new design it makes the iphone tougher than ever so it's not just the new glass i think a large part of that four times more drop resistance comes from the design with the glass totally flush sitting just inside the surface of the frame a piece of glass has six sides front back and all four edges and with five of those six sides protected by this phone frame in a way that most smartphones are not built it really does make this iphone 12 pro more shatter resistant so i do believe apple's claim about the glass being four times tougher but i think the protective design has more to do with it than the buzzwords do i've scratched hundreds and hundreds of phones in this exact same way and apple's ceramic shield is still scratching at level six with deeper grooves at a level seven it might just be my imagination but it does look like the level six scratches are a tad more faint but they're definitely still there ceramic shield is not the product that will bring us to the next level of mohs hardness one thing that can always be certain though is that as apple removes things from the box the high price will always remain the same the only way to really keep your screen scratch free and resale value high is with a screen protector i've installed thousands of screen protectors from my pre-youtube phone repair days and it only takes a few seconds the biggest obstacle is the dust underneath the glass but there's an alcohol wipe and a dust sticker in the box to help mitigate that the screen protector is held in place by a thin layer of nano adhesive so there's no residue left on the glass when it's ever removed and since the iphone 12 pro display is totally flat the precision cut screen protector makes it look like it was meant to be there just like you wear safety glasses to protect your eyes and a mask to protect your lungs a screen protector is a cheap way to avoid a lot of future regret i'll leave a link for dbrand screen protectors down in the video description plus these aren't your normal plastic rubbery screen protectors either it's an additional layer of protective tempered glass and as we know glass is glass and glass can it's much easier to replace a 10 screen protector than it is to replace a 270 display i'll leave that link in the description now if i'm being totally honest i do have to say that the iphone 12 pro is one of the cleanest looking and best feeling phones that i've held in a really long time and the frame is surprisingly hard to scratch the sides of the iphone 12 pro are made from stainless steel and since my razor blade is also made from stainless steel they're having a hard time damaging each other the paint is obviously still going to scratch off most phones are usually made from softer aluminum aluminum's like a 3 or 4 on most scale so this stainless steel at most five is quite a bit more resilient [Music] it's just the paint that's not the silver colored version of the iphone is going to hide this kind of damage the best there is no expandable memory of course there never was the magnets on the back can be a handy sim card removal tool holder and then of course at the bottom we still have our lightning port [Music] i'm also a big fan of the textured glass back here you can hear the difference my razor makes when it goes from the rough frosted texture to the smooth glass on the apple logo the textured glass has the ability to act like sandpaper to other objects since glass is a very hard material softer objects like this penny will leave marks behind on the glass but the marks aren't permanent it's just dust caught on the rough surface and can be rubbed away the top camera bump is relatively reasonable this year when compared to samsung's monstrosities the bottom lens is a 12 megapixel two times optical zoom telephoto then we have the 12 megapixel ultra wide in the center and the main 12 megapixel sensor up top and each camera lens is again covered with its own sapphire crystal lens cover it's still getting marks levels six and seven but you already know how i feel about that the screen of the iphone 12 pro is a 6.1 inch super retina xdr display meaning it's oled and has a slightly higher resolution than 1080p a cool thing though is that even after 30 seconds from the heat of my lighter the pixels on the oled are still unfazed with zero damage other phones start to turn white and not recover now i'm no materials expert but ceramic is a slower conductor of heat than glasses meaning that the heat doesn't transfer through it is easy so it is possible that apple's new screen material is keeping the heat away from the pixels this doesn't mean quite a whole lot as far as lighters go but it does add a little validity to the new ceramic crystal material claim that apple is making the oleophobic coating is definitely evaporated though so don't try the burn test on your own phone what about the bend test i mean it's probably easy to guess but with the more solid stainless steel frame and recessed glass on both sides keeping the box rigid the iphone 12 pro is a non-flexing tank of a cell phone and i'm impressed no bins kinks or cracks of any kind in the frame apple is and always has been premium and expensive but at least lately the materials have started to match the price tag a bit better i used my last phone for over three years and i've only had my current phone for about a year so i'm not ready to upgrade just yet maybe someday i'll try out the iphone again but i'll wait till next year's iphone 13 pro max ultra plus 6g no screen edition before i make up my mind i'll leave links in the description for that stuff apple forgot to include like the charger and screen protector let me know what you think of apple's new phone down in the comments you cool with them leaving out the charger come hang out with me on instagram and twitter and thanks a ton for watching i'll see you around
I've used a lot of famous and expensive smartphones like the iPhone X, the Samsung phone , and the Pixel 2XL in my pocket. These phones are pretty expensive, but in reality, not everyone can afford it. A lot of times when I unbox a money saving phone the radios in these internationally sold phones don't work that well I want to find the cheapest smartphone on Amazon but there are a few rules 1.
Can't be used can't be 2. Must be able to buy it on Amazon Prime 3. Must be able to support LTE 4. Must be a smartphone 5. Use Android if possible This is the phone cost me $49.99 Alcatel onetouch IDEAL From the box, the phone is still running the old version of Android , but the old version of Android is turned over to see the 4.5-inch 854×480 resolution screen on the back. As I said before, 4G LTE is 200W in the front and 800W in the rear. Camera 1.1GHz Octa-core processor Android version 5.1 Back to the era of 5.1, this is more important, the supported 4G signal frequency band supports both WCDMA and GSMA 850, 1700, 1800, 1900 American residents can use it with confidence by inserting a SIM card and as long as 49 Oh! Open the box and see what the $49 is.
Stop thinking about those good-looking phones that are 10 times more expensive than this one. First, get the device body, the removable battery! There is also a piece of paper in the front, so you know what it will look like when you turn it on The micro USB port at the bottom does not need to consider any symmetry issues at all. It needs to be placed where it needs to be placed. I guess there is no fast charging battery. This 1780mAh battery cannot be bought on Amazon. This is the back cover and the AT&T logo is posted.
What is the rating of this phone on Amazon? Seems like 3.5 stars? That's right, it's 3.5 stars. Based on this price, you shouldn't have high expectations. Simple and rude hhhh Good! Power on! Okay that's stupid bezels oversized bezels We don't care once we don't care this reminds me of the small Pixel 2 oversized capacitive buttons that I'd get sprayed on are common on older phones no glass backs, no wireless charging I went to see how much electricity it got from the factory, the screen is too dark hhhhhh The keyboard speed is a little slow, look at the difference hhhhhhh Also, I just want to connect to wifi, he told me it takes two minutes hhhhhhhhh What the hell is the same viewing angle, these two The screen is literally going down and down a $50 phone every day, the screen is completely invisible Wish the brightness could be turned up a bit, oh so much better! It 's not an OLED for a comparison dude I'll remind you, this phone is only $49 and I'm bragging that this phone has some pre-installed software and it's not that fast.
Time to look at the camera. It's a little nervous. The shutter lag is a bit high. ……The latitude is too low. Either it's too bright, or it's dark. The front camera is probably bad. It's not like human skin and zombies. However, the details are still wide and you can zoom in and out. But not being able to touch to focus the camera is really bad to test the speakers may be good may be bad latest Unbox Therapy video is this a Facebook ad? Come use Facebook. Have you heard of Facebook? have you heard of it? guys? The maximum brightness is 480p. Turn up the volume . The speaker of this phone may be accidentally covered on the back. Of course, the speaker is very bad. Of course, look at youtube . Positioning is for those who have never used a smartphone.
For those people, it's okay. After all, he has achieved the experience and price that a smartphone should do. How to balance it? I definitely don't want to buy a $49 phone if I can but $7,890 or even $500 is a bit pricey for us on the low end and you can indeed see some phones that improve that quality on Amazon in the US , I will definitely not buy it for $49. It should sell for one or two hundred dollars. There are some mobile phones at this price. It is a huge improvement compared to it. Don't buy this mobile phone. I bought it as a tape recorder or a backup machine. I don't hate the experience of this mobile phone. Just $49 Jack is more than $49 for a lunch.

the lg wing is probably one of the most unique devices we've seen all year or maybe even of all time it's one of those devices that well blazes its own trail without really stopping to ask for directions and i'm all for it this is a pre-production unit sent to me by lg so it's not a retail unit the durability test has to wait until that comes out like we always do but the hardware is finalized so we can take it all apart to see how it works huge thanks to lg for sponsoring this video and sending over the wing rather brave them since i've never opened up a phone like this before and there's a pretty good chance it won't survive let's get started the lg wing has about the same size shape thickness and weight as my note 10 plus inside of its case but the lg wing can do this which is something i never thought a phone would need to do instead of folding this guy swivels it'll be super interesting to see how that works from the inside the phone splits in half swiveling up into a t-shape so the screen is horizontal while revealing a secondary square screen down below the swinging motion feels solid and really easy to initiate and something catches the screen at the top of the swivel to gently ease it into place we're going to find out how the hinge works once we get inside lg has installed a high lubricity polyacetyl which is a lubricated plastic source that surrounds the front panel and protects the screen it's a softer smoother plastic raised up to form a slight cavern inside so foreign materials won't be rubbing up on the screen when it's closed or opening this is important because pocket sand is a real danger to glass displays when the phone is opened up in its wing to state there is more real estate for activities and multitasking like with youtube it displays the video up top and the video controls down below or when we're in the camera app the bottom display can act as a gimbal for the camera unit adding extra electronic stabilization to the camera there is no physical movement of the camera hardware while you're controlling that gimbal it's all done with software but still pretty cool activating the top camera makes it pop out of the phone like a daisy and then the wing can film forwards and backwards at the same time it also has the same retract and fall detection features that we've seen in other pop-up cameras the coolest thing though i think is the ability to watch a video full screen while another app like texting is open at the bottom or even the ability to comment on a video while it's still full screen or maybe while you're on a road trip the navigation can be vertical while the music is over on the side screen there are a lot of different options i mean let's be honest this probably isn't going to be the best phone to recommend to grandma but if you're looking for the latest craziest and most uniquely designed phone on the market this might very well just be it now that the wing has been awake for five minutes it's time to take it apart so keep in mind that this is my first time seeing the lg wing and it is very different from any other phone we've taken apart recently so cross your fingers for our new friend's survival dlg wing has passed nine different mil standard 810g tests one of which is the shock test which dropped the wing at 26 different angles from 1.2 meters and it still survived but that's obviously quite a bit different than being completely dismantled i'll remove the back glass panel since that's where i'd assume we'd find the screen and internal connectors along with whatever magic makes up that swivel hinge with the back glass gone we get our first look at the wireless charging pad and the no dogs allowed sticker which is good since i'm not a canine i'll continue there are nine normal phillips head screws holding down the top plastics and once that panel is removed we get our first tease at how lg has assembled the wing we know ribbon cables can flex you know from those pop-up cameras and this ribbon cable controlling the screen goes through the pcb and rotates gently with the display inside of its large smooth circular opening lg says they've tested this opening motion over 200 000 times which like if you flipped open the phone 100 times a day would still last you about five and a half years so far so good we can also get a close-up look at the pop-up front-facing camera it's got the same stepper motor setup that we've seen other pop-up cameras use i used to dedicate an entire video to a pop-up camera but now we've got whole phones splitting in half technology's pretty great i'll disconnect the battery the bottom screen the usb-c charging port cable all just like little legos then i'll pull out the sim and expandable memory sd card tray you might think that a phone like this wouldn't have any water protection and you're kind of right the phone isn't exactly sealed shut but lg has coated the internal boards with a water repellent coating there's still no official ip rating so keep it away from water but it is nice to know it does have some protection i'll lift the motherboard out from the phone after disconnecting the 32 megapixel front-facing camera there are three rear-facing cameras the 12-megapixel swivel camera up top a 64 megapixel main camera which does have optical image stabilization and a 13 megapixel wide angle camera down at the bottom the top camera does the whole gimbal thing that i showed you earlier with its built-in electronic stabilization there is a small thermal pad on the back which helps transfer heat away from the processor into the frame of the phone i'll take the battery out next before we try to remove the wing there is an incredibly reasonable amount of adhesive holding the battery down no magic pull tabs but it does pop up easily with my pry tool thumbs up for that it has a four thousand milliamp hour capacity we have a few more revelations about that hinge from this vantage point the little doohickey that cushions the hinge opening is right here next the display ribbon it's the smallest hydraulic damper i've ever seen hydraulic shocks are common on trucks and off-roading vehicles to help cushion the impact of the vehicle while off-roading and here we have the babiest of the baby shocks inside of the lg wing if we can get an awe down in the comments that would be great we'll get a closer look at that guy in just a second in order to get the front screen off i imagine it has something to do with these six large phillips head screws after those are gone i can tell the screen wants to come away from the phone but it's still connected somehow i'm trying to be gentle since i never really asked lg if they wanted this phone back alive or not but they also didn't tell me how to open it so here we are after a lot of unfruitful jiggling and wiggling i realized that the screen itself had a little hole in its sliding mechanism kind of like how we would find in a hotel room chain door lock and once i got those internal screws removed it gets loose enough so the hole can be lined up and popped off the body of the phone i used to you know tell my mom that video games would help me learn problem solving skills that i could use as an adult and i don't think this is exactly what she had in mind but i'm still counting it there are nine black screws holding the hinge of the super thin top display and once those are gone we finally get our full complete view of the lg wing hinge the rest of the hinge components are riveted together which makes sense because what's left inside are two pretty powerful springs one that helps the phone open and hold it open and the other that holds it in the closed position both equally balanced so that the swiveling motion itself is easy the large hole in the center is for that ribbon cable the two curved sections you see on the hinge are for the double locking mechanism that keeps the screen from opening too far in either direction and having two of them both made out of metal helps keep the screen strongly positioned parallel to the rest of the foam body it looks like our itty bitty hydraulic damper is held in place with three tiny screws of its own i'll pop those out and pull away our tic-tac-size little friend it's amazing how small this thing is the same technology that keeps the screen door from slamming shut is now inside of a cell phone 2020 has been pretty wild speaking of wild it's going to be really crazy if i can get this whole thing put back together and functioning again i'll feed the top display through the hinge and get that screwed down the top display is 6.8 inches and the bottom display which is still attached to the frame is just about four inches getting the curved metal guiding slot in the screen lined up with the metal post on the foam body is probably the trickiest part of the reassembly but once i feel it get clicked in everything else just falls into place exactly how it should and i can attach the spring portion of the swivel hinge back to the frame from the inside everything else is relatively normal just like a regular phone the motherboard goes back in with this pop-up camera and all of the little lego style ribbon attachments get clipped in i'll lay the battery in place and get the wing screen ribbon connected then i can attach the wireless charging and protective backed plastics with the screws and trust me i'm just as surprised as you are the whole thing still turns on and functions like normal not too shabby i'm impressed at lg's leap of innovation the wing brings some exciting diversity to an otherwise rather boring sea of rectangles and i think it's pretty cool i'm curious to hear your thoughts about the wing down in the comments we'll do a durability test when the retail version comes out to keep things consistent i am glad that lg gave us an early look inside though hit that subscribe button if you haven't already coming out with me on instagram and twitter and thanks a ton for watching i'll see you around you
the asus rog phone 2 is probably the most powerful and feature-rich smartphone that money can buy in 2019 it's technically a gaming smartphone ro G stands for Republic of gamers and asu's has been using this brand to deliver some pretty innovative stuff today we're gonna find out if it's durable let's get started one of my favorite things about gaming smartphones is that they are typically a little less conservative design wise and let them self fine literally with built-in LED lighting I'll turn the back LED logo on in just a second the ROG 2 has a metal and glass back combo design and has the same copper vent that we saw in last year's ROG 1 it looks pretty phenomenal with it's multicolored subtle holographic reflective accent lines that run throughout the dark silver let's start with the scratch test the ROG 2 has a large 6.6 inch 1080p screen and it's using the latest version of Gorilla Glass Gorilla Glass 6 which means that we shouldn't see any scratches at level 2 like we saw on the plastic inner screen of the Galaxy fold the ROG to scratches at level 6 with deeper grooves at a level 7 up here at the top of the phone we find a singular 24 megapixel front facing camera tucked into the black bezel the bezels are slightly larger on this beast due to the internal front firing stereo speakers they also double as a place to grip the phone while gaming in landscape mode last year's phone had orangish colored plastic stuff covering the grille and this year they've made it a bit more clean and got rid of the orange which I'm a fan of the same thing goes for the secondary front-facing stereo speaker grille down at the bottom of the phone it wouldn't be a durability test without finding out what the phone is made from the ROG phone has an anodized aluminum body there is a SIM card tray down here that's a dual SIM but no SD card slot even though there is a one terabyte upgrade option for the internal memory which is impressive it still doesn't beat the inexpensiveness and easiness of just adding an SD card down the road there's not a rubber ring around the SD card for it which we haven't seen in a long time moving up to the side of the phone it contains a rubber plug this keeps the accessory ports and secondary charging port clean when it's not being used the rog 2 has two USB C charging ports this side port can also output 4k video tweet TV or computer monitor and can connect to the external fan cooling units or other accessories it's pretty cool to have options even if there is no advertised water resistance the top of the phone has more anodized black metal and the right side of the phone has the capacitive touch pad triggers money the rent just like we would see on a gaming controller it also has a metal volume rocker and metal power button and those capacitive corner triggers shouldn't affect our building but we'll find out with the bin test in just a minute finally here at the bottom of the phone we get the USB C port and we see our little buddy the headphone jack I haven't seen one of these in a while a lot of flagship and mid-range phone manufacturers have been dropping the headphone jack so they can push their own brand of wireless headphones that usually cost well over a hundred and fifty or two hundred dollars it's important to remember that there are a lot of good wireless headphones out there that cost a whole lot less which brings us to Raycom huge thanks to Ray Con for sponsoring this video ray cons totally wireless headphones are half the price about a premium wireless earbuds and sound just as good if anything these are louder and have more base than any other headphone I've tested recently and I've tried out quite a few different headphones I mostly use my headphones at the gym or while running and these are small enough and light enough that I never feel like they're falling out they have six hours of play time with an additional 24 hours of juice stored in the carrying case you can get 15% off and check out the additional colors with the link in the description there's definitely no reason to pay big bucks to buy headphones that are the same brand as your cell phone especially when there are cheaper and better options like these ray cons well you decide for yourself though they have free shipping and free returns and thanks to Ray Con for sponsoring this video getting back to the back of the ROG 2 the main portion of the phone is covered with that great glass the vibrant accent lines and hard camera angles helped make this phone look pretty unique it's got a 48 megapixel main camera with a 13 megapixel ultra-wide camera on the side and there are also two different colored LEDs for the flash when both colors of the LEDs flash at the same time it helps not to wash out the image as much but the thing that makes this phone physically stand out the most is the metal growth a su says the upper copper portion has a vent that lets the heat escape out from inside the phone which is kind of true we found out last year that the metal shell was mostly for aesthetics and the copper coloring was also mostly just for looks nothing was really wicking heat away from the processor there passive bins underneath the metal of course but no internal fans and the actual heat pipe the part that does keep the phone cooled most is on the screen side not the back panel so we'll see if that's the case when we tear down this guy's well they did include a clear case in the normal retail box which is nice it still leaves a little gap for the copper cooling to show through let's get these LEDs turned on now it might look like this RGB ROG logo isn't very luminous here on my desk but that's only because my desk lights are super bright we can see the changing colors when they're shadowed but in a normal room this would be pretty easy to see I'm definitely not opposed to making it even brighter though ROG is probably still using that little side lit deflection thing we saw in last year's phone we'll have to check it out from the inside of course but the point is the 6,000 milliamp hour battery can probably handle a few extra LEDs inside and it would be pretty cool to see some more major lights just like we would see in a gaming PC either way this thing looks pretty cool these six thousand milliamp hour battery is probably one of the best things about this phone alongside the 120 Hertz 1080p OLED panel for reference most phones and monitors these days refresh at 60 Hertz so having a phone that can display these movies game scrolling and images twice as fast as usual and is pretty interesting it does last about 30 seconds under the flame from my lighter which is also cool or hot depending on how you look at it the screen definitely did not recover though so don't do this at home I almost forgot about the under screen fingerprint scanner it's easy to tell that the ROG 2 is using an optical scanner one because the whole display brightens to max when it's trying to sense my finger and more importantly it has the green circle of light where my finger is touching the sensor underneath the display uses that green light to illuminate the ridges on my fingerprint and then reads my fingerprint through those LEDs it's pretty cool the under screen fingerprint technology wouldn't be possible on an LCD due to all those layers we saw in my last video just oh let's the good news is is that even with these level 7 deeper grooves marring up the surface of the glass the fingerprint reader can still sense my finger and unlocks the phone every time finally the bend test this thing is massively thick and heavy which by default helps the rigidity of the phone but even with that thickness and weight we still get a flex near the side charging port I guess having a hole in the frame weakens it a bit and allows it to flex but there are no permanent kings or cracks in the metal even when bent from the front side the ROG – is still a solid beast of the phone and quite possibly one of the most feature-rich smartphones money can buy in 2019 it passes my durability test I'll toss a link for the current pricing of the ROG – down in the description below next to the rake on headphones link remember you can get 15% off to be honest I got this phone mostly so I could check out the insides hit that subscribe button if you're into that kind of thing and coming out with me on Instagram and Twitter would you ever buy a gaming phone or maybe better question do you gain very much on your current phone let me know down in the comments thanks stuff for watching I'll see you around
the iphones have always been some of the most complicated phones to take apart you'll see why over the course of this video but there's no way we could let this iphone 11 pro max flagship slip by without seeing the insides this is the most water resistant mainstream smartphone money can buy right now so it's time to see what helps keep water out and how repairable it really is let's get started [Music] [Applause] [Music] since basically day one of the first iphone's existence apple has been in the business of trying to keep people out of their phones and this new iphone appears to be no different it has the same proprietary pentalobe screws holding the bottom of the screen to the stainless steel frame of the phone it uses a screwdriver that's pretty easy to find online but most people don't immediately have it on hand i'll leave a link for a good tool kit in the description looking closely at the screw it has black thread locker filling the gaps between the threads and the phone body this helps keep the screw in place as well as helps keep water out the biggest opening for water to get inside the phone though is the screen there is adhesive surrounding the whole rectangle in order to pull the screen off i'll need to use heat to soften that adhesive and a strong suction cup to pull on the screen while adding some leverage with my pry tool between the plastic lip and the stainless steel frame as i work my way around either side of the phone lifting off the display you can see the substantial amount of stringy gooey black adhesive that holds the parts together i'm taking special care to avoid the ribbon cables hiding along the edge of the right side these cables are about as fragile as paper and can be torn very easily you'll get a better look at them as the screen lifts off they're down there through those gooey strands at first glance things look pretty standard for the iphone a ton of screws and the massive l-shaped battery thumbs up to apple for adding battery life and thickness to their phones this year instead of trying to go thinner i'm also glad that the ribbons are all off to the side last year had a random ribbon cable coming from the center that made the screen removal quite a bit harder the front camera and face scanner are tucked up in the top of the phone i'll remove these six y triple zero screws holding the middle plate over the top of the screen ribbon connectors one of those screws is easier to access from the other side of the screen if you close and scooch it over a bit and take a look at that motherboard it's lego connector central up in here happy birthday to myself i'll remove another four y triple zero screws that hold the top protective metal plate and side ribbon guide down over the camera units and there are two more screws holding down the tiny plate over the battery connector before i unplug that battery though i want to make sure this whole thing still works and that nothing was damaged during the screen removal tapping the power button shows the apple logo and the phone turns on which app should i test to make sure the phone still works maybe i should use today's sponsor audible that was convenient audible is actually one of my favorite apps the book i'm currently listening to is called the man who knew the way to the moon and is one of the audible originals it sounds more like a verbal documentary than a narration i usually adjust the speed to be a tad faster than normal so i can get through more information quicker it's a true story about the guy who convinced nasa to use space rendezvous points instead of one gigantically massive rocket it's super interesting you can get a free audio book plus two audible originals when you try audible for 30 days with the link in the description audible.com jerryrig or text the word jerryrig to 500 500.
The audible original titles come from diverse categories like theater journalism literature and the documentary styles like the one i'm listening to now even if you decide to cancel audible at some point in the future you still get to keep your books they're yours to own forever audible.com jerryrig or text jerry rigged to 500 500 and thanks to audible for sponsoring this video i'll unclip the battery connector like a little lego from this smorgasbord of lego connectors the battery actually has two connectors one is found down below by the charging port so when clipping both of those is a good idea at this point i just didn't know the second one existed until later i'll unclip one of the charging port ribbons and then i'll make my way down to the three main ribbons holding the screen to the body of the phone the screen is significantly more simple this year than it has been for the previous years which is definitely appreciated it only has three screws holding the earpiece to the back of the display apple throws phillips head screws randomly in here and there throughout the phone so for those of you following along at home this is the third type of screwdriver we've used so far the earpiece folds down which lets us pry away the front sensors from the glass replacement parts will become more common and get cheaper as the phones get older i'll try to link some in the video description as they become available screen replacements aren't super difficult on iphones and with the disappearance of 3d touch the display is actually thinner and leaves more room for the larger battery speaking of which i've had a few requests for a straight up clean video shot of the internals so feel free to screenshot this crop it and use it as your phone wallpaper if you want just make sure to tag me on twitter if you do let's remove the front camera and the face id death scanner thingy it's got two ribbon cables to unplug wait nope there's three last one kind of just snuck in there this little unit has the front 12 megapixel selfie camera the one that can film in 4k and do those slow fees and also has the infrared dot projector and secondary camera for the face id it's a pretty cool setup and i'm glad it's not attached to the screen it makes repairs easier the three rear cameras each have their own ribbon cable attached to the motherboard i can unclip each of those and then the whole contraption comes right out of the phone apple really has made their design much more modular this year and i'm a fan up at the top we get the normal 12 megapixel camera with optical image stabilizing down at the bottom we get another 12 megapixel two times optical zoom camera which also has optical image stabilizing and over here on the side we have a 12 megapixel wide angle camera with no physical stabilizing i feel like this is the perfect setup and the arrangement i would personally like to have someday when i upgrade from my galaxy s8 i feel like apple has finally brought way more features to the table with smartphones this year and are finally competing at the same level of other flagships let's get this motherboard out i'll unplug the charging port ribbon but before i can pull that out once again i need to switch back to the y triple zero screwdriver there are three screws running down the right side keeping this cable with the metal bracket tucked to the side of the phone the next three screws are a bit trickier these are called standoff screws and they hold the motherboard in place if you don't have a standoff remover i can usually take a flat screwdriver bit and just twist the screw around in the circle from one side and as the screw comes out you can see that a standoff screw is actually a screw that has a screw hole inside a screw within a screw they are annoying to work with but apple uses them to save space and stack things on top of each other speaking of saving space once those screws are out and the sim card tray is removed the whole motherboard is ready to come out of the phone and this my friends is it this is the whole thing the brains and brawn of the whole iphone operation is sandwiched between these two stacked boards one thing i'm pretty impressed with on the iphones this time around is that all the solder connecting the circuits inside of this motherboard is made from 100 recycled tin you might be thinking nice work apple on recycling that tiny drop of tin but because apple is using recycled tin and not only their iphones but the macbook air the ipad air and the ipad mini it adds up to over 29 000 metric tons of tin ore that they don't need to mine from the earth it's a pretty substantial achievement and i'm glad apple's doing it let's keep going deeper the taptic vibrator engine is down here below the battery near the charging port it's got three little screws holding it in place and i'm going to set those off to the side to help keep things organized a lot of phones you can take apart and just toss the screws held or skelter but since basically every screw in here is a different shape and size it's very important to keep them organized with the metal plate gone and the vibrator unclipped from the charging port we get our first close-up of the taptic engine it's nice of apple to include their logo in case we forgot what phone we're taking apart this little guy is also using 100 recycled rare earth elements since we don't have an unlimited earthly supply of these magnets i'm glad apple is now going through the effort to reuse and recycle parts of their phones i'll remove one more screw and pull off the metal plate over the microphone hole and check out all that white adhesive over the hole to help keep water out of the microphone it's time to remove the battery apple once again has added the magic pull tabs which i'm thankful for prying out permanently glued batteries is extremely dangerous and even if a pride and bent battery doesn't spark and start on fire right away it'll still be damaged internally and will start to puff up and expand over time these pull tabs make battery removal much safer yeah they are still pretty fragile and break every now and then but it's still much better than what samsung is currently doing with the permanent adhesive and their phone [Music] apple has three pull strips at the end of each side of the battery [Music] and i was successful enough with most of them that the rest of the battery can be lifted up unharmed this is a 3969 milliamp hour capacity which is quite an improvement over last year's 3174 milliamp hours for real apple has come out to play this time the loudspeaker comes out next with its two screws holding it in place you might have noticed so far that while the iphone seems complex most components are still modular and come out relatively easily you can see the substantial amount of black adhesive holding the loudspeaker to the frame of the phone like i said in my durability test video this iphone 11 pro max is the most water resistant smartphone on the market right now while most manufacturers have water tested their phones to a depth of 1.5 or 2 meters deep for 30 minutes just to get that ip68 rating apple has gone above and beyond and tested the new iphone 11 pros to 4 meters deep for 30 minutes double the depth of what everyone else is doing hold on for a second though check this out the loudspeaker is full of a ton of those little white sound balls i assume these white balls help fill the space inside of the tiny little cell phone speaker to keep it from sounding like a tiny little cell phone speaker i'll take out the last nine screws for the charging port and get back to that ip rating even though apple went twice as deep as everyone else they still only got the same ip68 rating you're probably like why didn't they just go up a level to ip69 and that's because ip69 is a totally different test instead of submersion it's a high pressure and temperature water jet test and pretty irrelevant for cell phones cell phones get accidentally submerged all the time but getting accidentally blasted by a fire truck is far less common the charging port is finally out of the phone that was definitely a nightmare i don't want to repeat the iphone has so many intricate components it's not so much a difficult phone to repair it's just a very complex phone to repair and one wrong move or screw in the wrong place could wreck the phone if you do end up breaking your back glass and don't have insurance you can either pay apple 599 to fix it or just buy a replacement housing and swap over each component individually yeah it's going to be pretty extremely painful either way apple's still kind of being a big jerk where that's concerned i think you should just get a case before it breaks i'm pretty impressed with apple for stepping up and going above and beyond the bare minimum that they usually do this time apple has given customers the specs and features they're paying for and that always hasn't been true in the past of course in my opinion androids can still accomplish more i'm not ready to switch size just yet but i am glad that apple has stepped up with enough performance to match the price tag and is doing it with recycled and recyclable materials we can all appreciate and support that i'll get the camera units put back into their slot they are all housed in the same metal block so it's impossible to get them out of alignment and the same thing goes for the front cameras finally the front screen with its three ribbon cables can plug into the tiny motherboard and i can start throwing down all those metal plates over the lego style ribbon connectors the last thing that gets plugged in is the battery and this little metal bracket that covers the top then we can turn the phone back on and once again i'm just as surprised as you are that this thing still works i for one am glad that apple has started participating again in the smartphone race and even more so for using recycled components innovations in both areas are good for everyone i'll be looking into the recycling efforts of other manufacturers in the future so hit that

today we're going to take apart the galaxy fold this is the phone from samsung that opens up to show off a full internal display tucked inside the two halves since my inner screen was damaged during the durability test and is a bit finicky now my question is can i disassemble the phone and just keep one half of it as a functional device because technically there is that one screen that still works on the outside it should be an interesting little experiment let's get started so there are three surfaces to this phone the large square inner screen and then the two long rectangles that are located on the outside samsung phones are typically taken apart by removing the back glass and this galaxy fold appears to be no different with a bit of heat from my hika and a bit of fancy finessing from my razor blade along with the suction cup i can gently work my way around the back glass panel slicing through the adhesive it's a tad difficult since the glass is curved but not impossible after the majority of the adhesive is cut i can twist off the only piece of this phone that doesn't have a screen attached and pull it away from the phone there are no ribbons or anything sensitive attached to the underside of the glass we do get our first look at the wireless charging coil which i totally forgot this phone even had now we have two sides left i'm going to assume that this phone has more components under the smaller display so i'll grab my suction cup heat gun and razor blade and work my way around the glass once again taking special care not to put my razor blade too deep into the phone because if the screen gets poked from the underside it'll be dead the screens are very fragile as we learned from the folding screen inside of this phone after the adhesive is warmed up and cut away i can tilt the screen up and away from the hinge side folding it open allowing access to the thin ribbon cable plugged in underneath the black plastic cap once i unsnap that like a little lego the front screen and glass panel can be removed it's a super thin compact little design oled screens are as thin as they come it's the same style of screen we saw in the back of the nuvia x and now we know that samsung can do dual screens maybe they'll start adding front and rear screens to their other phones just because they can no complaints here there are 19 visible screws holding down the internal back plastics to the phone and three more screws hidden underneath the wireless charging flap after those are removed the wireless charging can be pulled away this has the circular wireless coils in the center along with what looks like nfc coils all of which can communicate through the gold contact pads that rest up against the motherboard now i can remove the black plastics from the right side the top section has a built-in loudspeaker along with a separate earpiece speaker kind of interesting that they are both right next to each other then we have a plain black piece of plastic that brackets around the battery and lastly we have the bottom plastics which contain the loudspeaker one cool thing about this little speaker just like we saw inside the iphone 11 pro are these little white foam dots that fill up the space inside of the speaker box the lightweight specs are added to the speaker housing to dampen the speaker as the speaker moves air inside of the speaker box has to pass through the foamy dots causing the air to scatter and act less dense which then allows the speaker to sound bigger than it actually is people have been adding foam to subwoofer boxes for years so it's interesting to see the same concept applied here on this subwoofer for ants someone should count these for us you might have noticed already that this phone has two batteries inside a smaller little guy off to the left and then a relatively proportional battery on the right side i'll unplug each of them just like little legos removing the battery is the same dangerous tedious process that it always is with samsung's even on this futuristic galaxy bold samsung still hasn't updated their battery adhesion practices with two pry tools gently leveraging up the battery i can finally remove it by hand but any accidental bins would either cause the battery to just slowly expand over the next several months or explode immediately it's a fun little game that keeps you on your toes i'll remove the extension ribbon over top of the smaller little battery and then commence the same gentle prying procedure while hoping nothing spontaneously combusts the small battery is a milliamp hour and the larger is a 2135 for a combined total of 4235 milliamp hours something i haven't noticed before is that both of the motherboards inside the galaxy fold kind of glimmer with a rainbow effect like a gasoline drip in a wet parking lot it must be some kind of treatment that they use while assembling the boards it looks super cool i really do think that sometimes the insides of cell phones look cooler than the outsides thumbs up to samsung for that one speaking of internals here's a close-up shot of the guts for those of you with a galaxy fold you can screenshot this crop it and make it a wallpaper back to business it's time to see how this hinge works and how it was able to withstand my bin test the sim card tray does have a rubber ring around the lip but there's definitely no ingress protection rating on this phone since dust can still very easily get inside at other points i'll remove the three large ribbon connectors on this half of the motherboard remember that this is also the half of the phone that the smaller rear screen plugs into there's one more phillips head screw holding the motherboard down and then i can lift up and unlatch the last little ribbon on the underside before pulling the motherboard free the shimmery motherboard comes out with the outer camera still connected it's a 10 megapixel camera with no optical image stabilization there's also a large magnet along the side and up in the corners this helps keep the phone closed but it's pretty well balanced without being too strong or noticeable i'll unsnap the two large motherboard extension ribbons from the other half of the phone along with the side button connector and i can pop out the two internal front-facing cameras remember there are six cameras in here these little guys are the 10 megapixel main camera along with its 8 megapixel depth sensing sidekick neither of which have optical image stabilization after popping off the two bottom signal wires the motherboard can start lifting away from inside the phone and once it's out we get our first glimpse of the copper cooling pad underneath the board the motherboard doesn't have any thermal paste but it does have the foam pad to help transfer heat the triple camera setup on the galaxy fold is very similar to the galaxy note 10 with its 12 megapixel two times optical zoom camera down at the bottom then the 12 megapixel main camera here in the center that also has optical image stabilization the main camera also has the little variable aperture gizmo it can magnetically adjust how much light can enter the sensor with its little circular shutter thingies pretty cool the 12 megapixel wide angle camera up top does not have any optical image stabilization remember how i was going to take this phone apart and see if half of the fold could still function as a full phone well both sides do have a battery and one half has an extra screen so it was a good theory but the problem is the small screen is on the opposite side of the usb-c charging port so the galaxy fold definitely needs both halves of the phone to still function who would have thought the copper vapor chamber can pry out of the phone easy enough this little guy just dissipates the heat from the processor allowing the phone to run a little cooler we've seen this kind of copper inside of a lot of phones at this point so let's keep going it's time to check out the massive internal 7.3 inch amoled screen and the complex hinge contraption that holds this whole thing together now you probably remember that this is the second time the galaxy fold has been released the first time it launched there was what looked like a screen protector on top but was actually part of the screen itself samsung has since extended that screen protector looking plastic component of the screen up underneath this plastic bezel so people now won't be tempted to peel it off my temptation to peel the screen off though is still pretty strong so let's proceed the screen is paper thin this time and well you know it's foldable it feels like a giant piece of thick packing tape just peeling away from the phone body and it's rather satisfying samsung has added a metal plate under each half of the phone on this new version and this is supposed to add a little bit of structure to the screen at the same time while not allowing any dust to get behind the display to cause damage since the phone body is not dust proof samsung has said that anyone with a samsung fold can replace that inner folding screen during the first year for a one-time fee of 149.
Which seems more than reasonable but if you happen to break the screen more than once or after that first year it'll be 599 funny how samsung can replace the whole screen for the same price that apple's charging to swap the back glass of an iphone 11. now let's take an up close and personal look at this hinge this floppy boy survived my durability test and i think it's time we found out how and why there are some pieces of long thin black tape covering up the internal screws i'll pull those away from the galaxy fold so we can see more of the impressive engineering we can also see some of the sand that slipped up inside the fold this is still causing a grinding noise as the phone opens and closes let's take things a step further the hinge of the galaxy fold is made up of three main components the first of which being the massive back metal spine of the fold and it's held in place by ten screws once those are removed the spine can be pulled from the center of the phone its metal design has chambers or ridges inside to help guide the other components of the hinge it keeps them from bending too far or rotating out of place here in the center we see the inner gears inspired by watch mechanics along with three of the four spring-loaded clasps that lock the fold into the open position it feels extremely well balanced inside of the fold we get these metal interlocked shovel looking gizmos two large ones in the center with two more smaller versions of both the top and the bottom there are a lot of moving parts inside of this thing which does make it feel very balanced and natural while also being incredibly sturdy but with all the precision that these moving parts require there's not very much room for any specks of sand and currently sand and dust can still get inside and grind away to their little heart's content so while this hinge design was inspired by watch mechanics hopefully samsung can also seal it up like watches are in future versions of the fold i think it's an awesome innovation and it's good of samsung to take care of their customers by offering replacement screens for so cheap during that first year i look forward to seeing what other versions of the folds come out next personally i want to see a smaller fold that opens vertically into a normal size cell phone kind of like the old school flip phones it'll be fun to see what happens do you think folding phones are ever going to catch on and be mainstream let me know down in the comments hit that subscribe button if you haven't already and coming out me on instagram and twitter thanks for watching i'll see you around
the galaxy s 20 ultra 5g might just be the most top-of-the-line highest end Android flagship we've ever seen with the best specs and longest name is it worth the $1400 though we've probably already know the answer but let's chat as to why inside the box we get the USB C 2 USB C charger some USB C corded headphones and a clear protective case and got a lot of free protection let's get started [Applause] [Music] now remember this ultra is Samsung's premium flagship for the moment price to have $1400 there are still the regular as 20s of course at the more reasonably unreasonable $1000 price point this review is going to be all about mr. premium here samsung seems to be really liking the soft screens these days luckily when I peel off this screen protector the display underneath doesn't die like we saw on the Galaxy d flip let's see if Samsung remembers how real glass is supposed to act we'll take a look at the large camera bump in just a second I've personally been using a samsung phone for the past four years or so as my daily device so I am a pretty big fan of the phones that Samsung makes usually as long as the advertising is pretty close to what gets delivered and we aren't robbed at the checkout I'm pretty easy to please with the s20 ultra we start seeing scratches at level 6 with deeper grooves at level 7 it's nice to see glass again this phone will be able to handle everyday objects and fingernails without getting scratched or dinged up my razor blade does no damage to the top 40 megapixel selfie camera the earpiece is up here as well and it's super thin slit there's no speaker grille to scratch or get damaged I'm a fan of this flatter screen design as well if the phone ever gets dropped the frame is going to be what gets hit instead of the glass which is good cuz glass is glass and glass breaks metal however might scratch but won't shatter the power button and volume button are made for metal and can still be removed I don't recommend stealing other people's phone buttons but if being a terrible human is your thing the option is available there are no buttons on the left side of the device nor on the top but there is a sim an SD card tray thumbs up to Samsung for keeping the expandable memory alive this guy can hold an additional 1 terabyte of storage with a normal micro SD card the slot helps future-proof the phone which is pretty important considering that $1400 starting a price point and how long you're gonna have to keep using it to pay it off the bottom of the phone has a little clear plastic protector to keep it from rubbing inside the box the bottom stereo speaker and USB C port are down here as well there is no headphone jack let's take a look for a second at the main selling point of this s20 ultra and that's the camera this boy is thick for people outside the United States the rise is about two point four millimeters tall for people inside the United States it's a bit thicker than a quarter yet also still pokes out above a toothpick the hump is a decent sized fraction of a fruit snack and it's just about the same size as a slice of butter I mean if you think about it the s20 ultra has four cameras one of which is a hundred and eight megapixels and the other is the 48 megapixel telephoto camera so the hump size is relatively reasonable and if you look closely you can see how much space that camera hardware actually takes up inside the phone check out how much room the hundred times space zoom periscope camera actually needs so that size of the exterior glass lens does match the dimensions of the hardware below it happy to announce my teardown skins with D brand or officially back we managed a hoard enough printer ink to hopefully keep them around long term this time we're covering a lot more phones with this patch and there are now two different styles of teardown instead of one you can see what they both look like on this grip case the original version on the right looks like it still has the shiny glass layer on the back or we have the new ultra matte version which looks like you're just holding the bare circuit boards personally I kind of like the glossy version true story I've had to tear down skin on my phone since our last batch and a stranger came up to me in public legitimately concerned that my phone was falling apart which means our skin is definitely doing his job I'll leave a link for the tear down skin down in the description of course I am getting ahead of myself this is a durability test video and not the teardown but there is one more thing we also tore down MacBooks Starbucks won't know what hit them you can see the dual fans with the batteries and my favorite part even the trackpad has its own see-through tear down protection you can see the copper windings for the taptic motor underneath there's a good chance we have a skin for your phone in your hand right now and we'll be adding more devices as the time goes on link is down in the description you're not gonna want to miss this one now don't get me wrong the ultra is a cool phone top of the line and all that jazz but it's not really doing anything that we haven't already seen before we saw the 108 megapixel camera already in the $500 Meno 10 and that periscope zoom camera we saw inside the p30 pro which also currently costs around $600 both of those phones with similar features are less than half the price of this ultra phone samsung has also taken their S 20 series and made 5g mandatory this time around and they charge a premium for it five G coverage still isn't even a thing yet for half of the United States and the millimeter wave the super high-speed portion of 5g is currently covering basically nobody the 5g phones are still very premature and paying a few hundred dollars out of your own pocket to sponsor a futuristic 5g tech you can't utilize is very much not worth it here in 2020 unless of course you do live in a large city and know for sure that the millimeter wave 5g system is right outside your window basically the $1400 galaxy s 20 ultra is made up of components that we can find another phones that cost half the price and includes a 5g system that most people can never use sometimes verbal burns hurt the most the 1440p AMOLED display lasted about 30 seconds under the heat from my lighter and did eventually recover the screen is also capable of a hundred and twenty Hertz refresh rate at 1080p we first saw this tech on the ROG phone – that's currently selling for five to six hundred dollars on eBay just another reason why this phone shouldn't be costing fourteen hundred the s20 ultra is using the under screen ultrasonic fingerprint scanner we saw debuted last year on the s10 I'll set my fingerprint first before adding some level seven deeper grooves to the screen and even with this additional artwork my phone was able to sense and read my fingerprint every single time the ultrasonic fingerprint scanners are safe from scratches I tried bumping up my exposure so we could get a look at the transparent pixels that surround the rectangular fingerprint scanner inside of the phone but it looks like we'll just have to wait until the next video to see how big it is the rectangle is still currently invisible Samsung hit it well finally it's time for the bin test honestly with how rock hard and rigid Samsung phones usually are I was surprised that this thick phone had a little bit of give to it it's the subtlest of sways of course probably due to the length of the phone and it's six point nine inch screen the s20 ultra does survive my durability test however no cracks kinks or permanent damage anywhere all I'm saying is if I had $1,400 in my pocket first of all I wouldn't spend it on a cell phone but if for whatever reason I had to it would not be this one the s20 ultra is a Frankenstein conglomerate of parts found in many other much cheaper phones and it doesn't bring anything new to the table if I wanted a top-of-the-line phone that screamed 2020 I would get the Galaxy Z flip even with its fragile screen its futuristic design and form factor warrant the $1400 price point way better than this s20 ultra does either way and every one is different but the one place you can't go wrong is with a teardown skin link is in the description let me know what you think tell me your thoughts on the s20 ultra down in the comments and coming out me on Instagram and Twitter thanks dumb for watching I'll see you around
– What's up, guys? SuperSaf here, and believe it or not we're almost halfway through 2021 already. Time really does fly. And, so far this year we've had some amazing
smartphones already. Now, like I've been doing
for the past few years, halfway through the year I do give you my top five
personal picks of the year so far. Now, before we get into the
list, a few disclaimers. I've tested a lot of smartphones
this year, but obviously I've not tested every single one. So there may be a
smartphone that you think should have been featured,
which hasn't been. That's absolutely fine. Please drop that in the comments below and I'll try to test it out and include it in the final end of year list. Second disclaimer, this is
my personal top five list.
It might be different to your list. That's absolutely fine guys. We can still be friends.
There's no need to fight. Please drop your top picks
down in the comments below. This list is in no particular order. I'm just giving you my top five. And because this list is of devices released in 2021, there are no iPhones in this top five list. Yes, we did have the purple iPhone 12, but that's just a different color. It doesn't really count
as a different smartphone. If you must know, the
iPhone that I use most is the iPhone 12 Pro Max. I've had it since the day it was released. I really like the cameras,
they're very consistent. It's got some of the best video on any smartphone right now and it's got excellent battery life.
Now there's definitely
room for improvement. We don't have the best
display on the iPhone. There's lots of other
smartphones, this year especially, that do overtake the iPhone in terms of display with high refresh rates. And the iPhone that I think
most people will opt for is the iPhone 12. I've covered both the iPhone 12 Pro Max as well as the iPhone
12 in separate reviews. I'll link those in the
comments and the description. And if you are thinking about buying an iPhone,
personally speaking, I would recommend you wait a few months.
September is likely when
we're going to be hearing about the next new
iPhones, the iPhone 13s. So it might be worth just
waiting a little bit longer unless you get a great deal. Now, with all of that out of the way, let's go ahead and get to
the 2021 top five list. So, the first smartphone on my list in no particular order, is
the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Now the S21 Ultra came
out very early this year and it has been the Android
smartphone that's been in my pocket for the
longest period of time.
And that's because Samsung
really did take a lot of feedback from users on the S20
Ultra and pretty much improved everything that we had asked for. So we've got an excellent
display with 120 hertz. We've got a very unique design,
which we don't really see on any other smartphone,
with a camera module really blending into the sides. And I'm a little bit biased but the matte black version
looks absolutely stunning.
We've got excellent overall
cameras with, in my opinion the best zoom on any smartphone right now. 10x obstacle zoom, which
can be extended quite a bit. Now, we no longer get a
charger included out of the box which isn't great for a
smartphone of this price. And the charging is also
not the fastest out there. It's only 25 watts wired charging. And this year we no longer
have a MicroSD card slot. Something that a lot of people are used to on Samsung Galaxy devices. But, regardless, it's
an excellent smartphone and I can easily recommend it. Right, moving on. The next smartphone on my list was also a smartphone
that came up pretty early but has kind of got forgotten a little bit and that is the Oppo Find X3 Pro. Now Oppo really did try to tick all of the boxes with this device.
We've got an excellent display. We've got some great overall cameras and what's quite unique is that we have the same sensor for the primary as well as the ultra wide camera, which you don't really see
on many of the devices. And we also have the world's first microscope camera on a smartphone. Now this is something
that I initially thought was a bit of a gimmick, but after using it, I
actually found I was using it more than the telephoto camera. Just kind of getting my
camera close up to things and really being able to see the details is just so, so much fun. There's also 65 watt charging included out of the box with 35
watt wireless charging. And it's also quite compact
for a full size flagship. It's only around 8.26 millimeters thin, which makes it a lot lighter
and a lot easier to use compared to some of the
other flagships out there. Now, of course it's not perfect. There's definitely room for improvement.
I think the selfie camera could
be improved, it's only 1080p and with the design, although
the way the camera module rises up is quite unique,
the overall design does look very similar to
the iPhone 12 Pro Max. I also think the device
is priced slightly high, especially if we compare it to the next smartphone on this list and that is the OnePlus 9 Pro. Now OnePlus and Oppo are partner companies so we do see a lot of similarities, especially from the front. The displays look almost identical. This is not a bad thing. We do have 120 hertz on both displays and they're very good. The OnePlus 9 Pro, however does come in quite a bit cheaper compared to the Oppo Find X3 Pro. And for that, you're not
really missing out on too much. You do get a premium built design Warp Charge 65T included
out of the box with support for wireless charge 50T,
which is very, very fast.
And although the
internals are very similar to other flagships out there, what you find with the OnePlus 9 Pro is that, thanks to OxygenOS, it is very, very fast and smooth. We also have some big improvements for the cameras this
year on the OnePlus 9 Pro with the ability to record
8K from both the primary as well as the ultra wide camera. And we have this massive
Hassleblad partnership which in my opinion, didn't
fully live up to the hype and although the cameras
have improved with time with software updates, I still
think that the Hassleblad partnership fruits will be
seen a few years down the line.
Now the front facing
camera is still not good as with the Find X3 Pro, it's just 1080p but overall, the one plus
nine pro is a great package. Now, before we move on, if you're enjoying this video so far, please do consider

coverage like this. Right, now the next smartphone on my list I mean, it's complete overkill, it ticks pretty much all of the boxes and that is the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. Now this device arguably
has one of the best displays on the market right now. Definitely one of the brightest displays out there with 1700 nits. You've got 120 hertz refresh rate with 480 hertz touch sampling. It's got a very premium ceramic build. You've got 67 watts
wired charging included but you've also got support
for 67 watt wireless charging, some of the fastest wireless charging you're going to find out there.
You also get a secondary
display on the back which can be used as a viewfinder for the rear facing cameras, which means you can get some
very high quality selfies. Now, the cameras overall, in my experience did not live up to the hype. Yes, they have been improved over time, but things like the 120X at
the back on a zoom camera that only has five times
optical zoom capability in my opinion, was just bad at marketing. I mean, sure, the Zoom's good, but it doesn't not compare to the zoom on something like the S21 Ultra. Now moving on, the final
smartphone on my list. This was definitely very
difficult to choose, but I think it's going to have to be the best compact Android
smartphone out there, in my opinion and that is the ASus Zenfone 8. Now this was a bit of
a surprise from ASus. Traditionally we've had the
flip, which we still have but the Zenfone 8, for me,
was a device that comes in at a very competitive price point with pretty much all of the internals that you have on any other flagship.
There's really not many compromises made. You've got 120 hertz display. You do have a respectable
4,000 milliampere battery with 30 watt charging
included out of the box and a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack which you're not going to find on any other smartphone on this list. So, very impressive there. Now, you don't get
wireless charging included and it can seem like a pretty basic phone. It's not got any bells and whistles but if you are after a
compact flagship smartphone, then the Asus Zenfone 8
is an easy recommendation. Now, I do have lots of honorable mentions because there's so many great
smartphones that I have used. We do have the gaming smartphone, such as the ROG Phone 5, the pro the one that I liked best,
which was the ultimate edition 144 hertz display, 6,000
milliampere battery with lots of triggers for gaming. And then we also had
the Legion Phone Duel 2, which, in my opinion, is more of a gaming
device than a smartphone.
And that's because it's really been built for gaming completely in landscape, including the pop-up selfie camera, 144 hertz display, a built-in fan to keep your device cool
after long gaming periods, as well as two USB ports, which you can use simultaneously
for dual turbo charging. This just absolutely blew my mind. The ability to plug in two USB-C cables to up to a 90 watt charger which give you some
very, very fast charging. We also had the ASus Zenfone Flip, which allows you to use
the rear facing cameras as front facing cameras
with 8K video recording. Overall, a great smartphone.
The S21 as well as the 21 Plus, which offer a lot of features
that the S 21 ultra offers, but at a lower price, even
compared to last year. We've also had the Vivo X60 Pro as well as the X60 Pro Plus. Very promising devices, which unfortunately, I have not had a massive amount of time to play with. And let's not forget some
of the budget options that we've had this year,
such as the Realme 8 Pro which I was very impressed with. 108 megapixel camera, 50
watt dock charging included out of the box, all for under 300 pounds. We also had the Poco F3 with the Qualcomm
Snapdragon 870 processor, 120 hertz refresh rate, again coming in at around 300 pounds, which is absolutely insane.
And then I also got to test
out the Infinix Note 10 Pro which is a device that retails
for around 259 dollars, has a 90 hertz display,
256 gigabytes of storage with 8 gigabytes of RAM at that very competitive price. I mean, I could potentially
do a separate video altogether for the top five budget smartphones. Definitely let me know
in the comments below if you'd like me to do that. And that is my top five list
with the honorable mentions. What are your favorite
smartphones of the year so far? Do drop those in the comments below. I hope you enjoyed this
