Sony Playstation Phone 2 – My Dream Smartphone!

my favorite phone that i've never used yeah that's such a weird thing to say you guys have used a lot of phones believe me i've been doing this for almost 10 years but sony's playstation phone the xperia play this predated c4 tech by a little bit so i never got around to getting my hands on it now if you're one of the 30 people who watch this channel you'd know about my recent obsession with everything retro gaming and you 30 have usually asked me what my dream phone is now that i've gotten my hands on a refurbished expedia play playing around with it it got me thinking it finally got me to realize what my dream phone's gotta be i have a bunch of cool ideas here i've got no idea hear me out and tell me what you think beat it up disclaimer i'm keeping this viable and realistic as in no snapdragon replayed at 100 kind of crap now sony's mobile business has been floundering for a while now and they've been dealing with it by doubling down on optics which is not a bad idea given the success of their mirrorless cameras and the fact that their smartphone camera sensors they are good and popular enough to actually be a marketing point during other brands launches now every brand that's launching a phone most of them at least when they have a sony sensor they come out and say we have a sony sensor now if my time with the xperia 5 mark ii was anything to go by sony seem to be doing a fine job with optics now recently i've cut down on reviewing covering phones right but the expedia one mark iii and the five mark iii they are still most definitely on my red app why because sony's been doing a beautiful job of leveraging that alpha camera technology and pairing it with some beautiful hardware now as popular as sony's alpha cameras are today they do have one brand that's even bigger playstation and unlike cameras where sony is one of five or six top brands today with gaming sony is one of three one of three so here's where a playstation phone comes in now this is the expedia play the original playstation phone it's got direction buttons two analogs okay not analog sticks but you get what i'm saying oh i've been holding up upside down awesome if you like that go ahead give this video a thumbs up so any which ways uh you get what i'm saying right it's got menu select start buttons apart from that the face the face button circle x square triangle and then we also have the left and right bumpers in 2021 to be able to do something like this with a smaller form factor and add in l2 r2 kind of like this and maybe even on-screen keys for l3r3 or just tap the left side of the screen for l3 right side of the screen for r3 that should work because most of the games the kind of concept i'm going for it's not going to use l3 and r3 a lot now pair all this hardware with a 720p 60 fps screen yes i said it 720p no i'm not trying to pleasantly surprise you i'm not gonna fault you for thinking this is stupid but bear with me i'll clear it up in a moment now apart from these i will also go for a successor to the playstation pocket app now in case you didn't know the playstation pocket app that was sony's own store to buy ps1 games on the xperia play so refresh playstation pocket app uh you know for 2021 with support for not just ps1 but ps2 psp and maybe just maybe even the ps vita that would be amazing technically it should be doable the ps1 came out in 1994.

In 2011 sony had no issues emulating that the ps2 launched in 2000 the psp in 2002 if i can recall correctly so emulating them on 2021 hardware should not be an issue the ps vita okay maybe i'm being a little unrealistic a little greedy with that one but returning back to the dream hardware it is a dream after all right so the ps2 it doesn't run great on some flagship chips so we got to go snapdragon triple 8 and i want to get the most out of it which is why i'm pairing it with a 720p 60 fps screen guys if you look at the ps vita it's got a 544p display and as of now the games still look tremendous they are still very very beautiful as you can see this is the original ps vita with the oled display and it's it's just fabulous uh pleasantly surprising because you know when we are talking about consoles like the ps1 ps2 psp or even the vita higher than 60 fps n gonna really do much and these games don't even run at a native 720p so we're going to be upscaling and 720p i i feel that would help keep the battery small the price low and the performance high now this is not samsung cutting resolution just for the heck of it we are doing this because it fits now with the snapdragon s2 chip the xperia play was able to emulate ps1 pretty flawlessly why because it is using an official first party sony emulator to get the job done now in 2021 aaa pushing only 720p at 60fps soon he should be able to achieve flawless ps2 emulation because even with third party emulated emulators it is possible today it runs decently well uh a native emulator they should be able to get it flawless and the vita yes yes yes i'm a greedy i know now think about this these crazy devices 700 us dollars heavy as with weird displays that is a market for these not a huge market but that is one nonetheless so phone like this at around the 400 mark yes you heard me right 400 at this price point it should have an audience the price can be met if sony looks at it as an ecosystem the cameras put in one imx 686 or even a 586 sensor to the back a basic eight megapixels megapixel selfie shooter for zoom calls and wait for it ship these phones with a dock now this if you've seen my other video i don't know which one's going live first so let me repeat myself uh the dock was not a nintendo idea it was a sony idea they actually sold one for the psp go they just executed it so poorly that most of us don't even remember it and i said this multiple times in the past sony microsoft nintendo they all sell dirt cheap hardware for consoles why i mean why do they actually take a huge hit with the hardware because at the start of a generation it's okay taking a hit they're actually subsidizing the costs because it's basically a price of entry for for a consumer into an ecosystem that's how they say it unlike with pcs every time you buy a game on the nintendo store the playstation store the microsoft store these brands actually get a cut of every sale you make and they make that throughout the life cycle of a console so yeah a snapdragon triple eight at four hundred dollars isn't gonna be profitable for sony they're probably gonna lose money on it at least initially but at a hundred dollars over the switch as a gateway to an ecosystem it might just be what the doctor ordered now unlike consoles the phone cannot be sold with the same specs for six seven years right you can do that with the console yes now the switch is almost four years old already they can push it for another three years it's totally fine maybe do a minimal refreshing hardware but a phone can most definitely be sold for four think about it the flagship chip from 2018 what is it the snapdragon 845 as of today at 400 i'm not gonna call it great value but if it were running android 11 flawless android 11 and it came with the entirety of suny's retro library i'd still be interested in getting it and of course by year 3 year 4 they could drop the price by 50 or 100 as a standard with consoles now the key to this is gonna be updates people don't mind older hardware as long as it's gonna be updated fine case in point the nvidia shield tv it started off with android tv version 405 and it's had support for six years now now nvidia has managed to do it mostly because they have their own chip and qualcomm if you were using a qualcomm ship even if you did want to support it you can't because qualcomm just doesn't support their chips past a few years but then this is sony that we are talking about and if this becomes a this concept phone becomes like a hybrid it's it becomes an ecosystem by its own then sony should be able to have enough pull to actually push qualcomm to support the phone for or support the chip for four years uh they might even talk them into getting them a higher bend exclusive chip the snapdragon 888.8 or whatever it is now one of the biggest issues with android well let me come out and say it piracy that's one of the reasons why a lot of uh great developers develop only for ios and not for android now this is something sony will have to contend with after all what's going to stop someone from buying the phone at cost you know letting sony subsidize it and then putting damien ps2 pp sspp and eps xc on it to get all these games for free in which case sony will just be losing money on hardware and not really making anything on software not a good business idea now one of the biggest reasons for the failure of the psp was the fact that a few years in while they didn't manage to match nintendo on the units sold but on an average each buyer was only buying three to four games so that meant we're not really seeing the profits despite the hardware sales being good but that was 2011.

This is 2021 and the difference is too soon in 2021 brands have another method of seeing profit i call this the netflix formula think about this for a minute a few years back when when say the original xperia play came out how many of us were pirating content i mean let's be honest sharing is carrying team jack sparrow a lot of us were doing that but now with the rise of netflix and prime i don't say we don't pirate stuff i'm saying we still are paying for at least some services right netflix prime jio hot star hell even sony live at least some of these services we do pay for so if sony were to offer a subscription service or maybe even two tiers of it you know tier one you get ps1 and psp tier two you get ps2 nps vita all this you know you get to access these content on a monthly subscription that should entice people into paying for it maybe even give the subscription three months free when you buy the phone after that sony could even offer exclusives resurrect playstation mobile now with something like this the nvidia shield portable or something like this oh yeah these utter failures they still got exclusives so if sony can drive up adoption then they might even be able to get some developers on board for exclusives now add to it the dock here i'm just channeling the pstv which basically was a vita without a display now the psd will let you stream ps4 to another room to your second tv so basically hey you get another console on another room without having to buy a second console they could probably let this playstation phone do that there's a market for it isn't there pstvs well technically not a hit they still sold decently command all of these into one product at a killer phone at a dollar price point which off the bat might seem unrealistic and hey it is a little unrealistic but then look at it the xperia 5 mark iii is expected to be priced around 850 900 you cut the display from that full hd to 720p the refresh from 120 hertz to 60 hertz the cameras from three to one a much older sensor that the storage from 128 to say 32 gb with micro sd because ufs 3.1 and microsd it's not gonna make a huge difference for older titles because we're talking emulation of course you're going to have to factor in the costs of the buttons and all that but as of today there is no official console with the controller that lets you stream your ps5 the vita got you remote access to ps3 and ps4 but it can't do ps5 so maybe maybe even if they are taking a bit of a cut on the hardware it could be alluring enough for existing ps5 buyers for gaming enthusiasts for retro gaming enthusiasts and on top of that streamers uh i said i'm not asking i'm not talking about people streaming i'm talking about people who uh who like to stream the games themselves to play kind of like what a microsoft is doing with xbox game pass or google with stadia that this could be the hardware the best way to experience those so even if you're not really using sony's own service you're still going to be paying for sony hardware that's probably the best way to do things uh kind of like samsung selling amoled panels to uh apple or rather sony selling their sensors to other brands that's a more obvious parallel what what am i thinking any which means all these services are they're supposed to go up with the adoption of 5g with 5g you know more and more countries more and more uh consumers embracing 5g this adoption rate of google stadia or of playstation now off uh microsoft xbox game pass all this is going to go up so uh being able to send out push out these uh existing huge uh gaming libraries as a service that means they aren't really focusing on development but they are able to put the ps1 ps php ps2 ps vita these entire payments or behemoths of libraries in the palm of your hand that would be the epitome of gaming right because from an android gaming perspective there's a lot there are a lot of brands doing android gaming phones so this would be a different take of gaming uh a look at gaming without micro transactions and look at more uh just full-fledged gaming for a more hardcore gamer from somebody who's playing on smartphones from somebody who's not looking at the social aspect of gaming maybe just maybe this might work out uh now the xperia play was a good phone but frankly speaking it was a little ahead of its time so i feel this the time is perfect for sony to come out with a follow-up what do you guys think do you feel this stream phone of mine is something that could be done and more importantly do you have a dream phone if you were to go about it what would you use how would you go about it what services would you actually provide let me know in the comments below and with that we get to the end of this video thumbs up thumbs down based on whatever you felt about it subscribe turn on notifications hit that bell icon if you haven't yet and thanks a lot for watching till next time my name is ash you've

Asus ROG Phone 2 Teardown! – Is the rear vent Fake?

today we're taking apart the ROG phone to probably one of the most feature-rich smart phones of 2019 we're gonna look underneath that crazy metal protrusion on the back panel and see if it actually does anything besides just look cool and we'll see how the glowy LED lights on the back panel work should be pretty interesting this video is sponsored by Toro let's get started so last year when I took apart the ROG won this metal contraption felt more like decoration than anything else this year my razor blade can slide underneath the growth so we know that it's not a built-in part of the frame but it's also still connected underneath the back glass so I'll have to break out my trusted heat gun to remove the glass before getting to the metal chunk the adhesive holding down the rear glass panel with its colorful accent lines and can be warmed up and cut away with my suction cup and razor blade working my way around the hard angles of the metal vent is fairly complicated glued shut phones are never the easiest to take apart finally though with enough heat and persuasion we can rotate the back cover off revealing an absolutely massive internal battery and a self lit LED reflective back panel the lights inside the ROG 2 aren't deflected from separate LEDs the LEDs are actually built into the reflector itself much better design than last year's ROG one that had the LEDs off to the side shooting into a white piece of plastic this new method is much more efficient and more secure and since it has its own cold contact pads these can basically be added anywhere inside the back panel on future foams and can just shine through wherever the glass is clear so let's cross our fingers for even more lights in the future it's nice to see that the RGB lighting on gaming smartphones is improving a soos is really shaking things up speaking of brands that are shaking things up huge thanks to Toro for sponsoring this video Toro is a car sharing service that has vehicles in more than 5,000 cities across the u.s.

Canada Germany and the UK it's just like renting a car but way easier and the price on average is usually 30% less than a normal car rental service there are some pretty nice cars on here as well Toro has 24/7 customer support and roadside assistance and you also have access to insurance through the Turo insurance agency personally I'm eyeing these Tesla's that I can rent all day for super cheap Turo can be accessed via the web or by downloading the app for iPhone or Android use the link in the description along with the discount code our IG 15 for $15 off your first trip if you need a truck to move something or just want to try out a Tesla for the first time or maybe just need a cheap car to get around while you're traveling Turo is pretty simple and you can even rent out your own vehicle to make some extra cash I'll leave the link in the description if you want to learn more and get that $15 off and thanks the turo for sponsoring this video to get deeper inside the ROG phone – we got to remove the ink screws holding on the bottom plastics and the five screws holding down the top plastics you would think at this point when those screws are off that the back panel could come away from the phone but MIT turns out there are two more screws hidden underneath the metal vent and since the glass is now off I can slice underneath that metal vent and remove it from the frame this guy is its own little unit stuck to the phone with adhesive and it is hollow inside the underside of the hump is made from plastic with only a very thin outer metal shell about as thick as a pop cam the metal hump itself definitely does not provide any active thermal cooling the tiny copper grille however does have a direct opening to inside the phone which from a water resistance perspective is a nightmare but once again there is no direct contact with anything on the motherboard the tiny vent just allows passive heat dissipation for any heat that happens to radiate through the air off the motherboard itself let's just say this thing looks more impressive from the outside than the inside at least this time around we'll see if there's any more copper cooling on the underside of the motherboard in just a second let's go deeper the massive battery is plugged into the center of the motherboard all unsnap that like a little Lego and then I'll make my way down to the three small ribbon cables at the bottom of the motherboard this phone does not have any wireless charging or water resistance which might be deal-breakers to some but it does have a headphone jack which are getting pretty rare these days this tiny little daughter board also comes soldered together with the lower vibration motor there are two vibrators in this phone we'll find the other one in just a second I'll remove the dual SIM card tray and then lucky for us a juice is added a magical pull tab underneath the battery it's a narrow little guy and eerily silent compared to Apple's pull tab but it gets the job done in a safe manner and doesn't bring there is a bit of gentle adhesive on the far side of the battery but nothing that's super dangerous this is a six thousand milliamp power left the in polymer battery pack which is the largest we've seen inside of a cell phone all year and check out what's underneath the battery a solid wall of copper now we're talking this is where the real cooling happens this is an under screened vapor chamber we've run into a few of these in the past we'll have to pull it out to see how big it really is in just a second first I'll remove the rubber plug out of the side dual USBC accessory and display ports and unclip the dual rear facing camera and pull it away from the phone it's got a 48 megapixel main sensor on the left and a 13 megapixel wide-angle camera on the right neither of which are advertising optical image stabilization the front 24 megapixel camera also does not have oh is but does come with a gray rubber ring around the lens kind of random I can finally pull the motherboard now from inside the phone frame it's got a long thin design that basically wraps around the whole phone the design of the ROG 2 seems like things were added kind of at random it's not quite as organized as other flagships we've been inside it does have thermal paste between the processor and the massive internal heatsink little copper square that touches the processor is located up near the top small circle vibrator I imagine there are two vibrators inside to give better haptic feedback on either side of the phone wall gaming just like we would see inside of a normal video game controller the top and bottom stereo speakers are also a bit different the top speaker is much smaller and the bottom speaker doesn't appear to have any balls inside like we saw inside the galaxy full the under screen fingerprint scanner is also down here at the bottom of the phone near the loudspeaker it's a little camera that shines up through the thin AMOLED screen to read your fingerprint now normally we do try to keep these phones in working condition I like putting them back together but this particular design puts the copper vapor chamber between the frame of the phone and the screen because that AMOLED panel is so thin the ROG 2 uses that to its advantage to allow heat to escape out the front of the phone which is pretty smart except that the only way for us to see it is by removing the screen and removing the screen breaks the screen screen removals are usually only performed when the screen is already broken the ROG phone 2 has a large 6.6 inch 1080p display but the thing that makes it special is the 120 Hertz refresh rate it shows images twice as fast as normal phones do and yeah cracking a 120 Hertz displayed hurts me a little bit on the inside but at least now we get to see what we came here for look at the size of this copper layer we might have a new vapor chamber world champ right here this looks larger than even the razor phone to vapor chamber normally vapor chambers have you know vapor inside the vapor wings along the little copper capillaries to keep things cool and usually this paper is visible when we slice it open at least for a second but in my particular ROG phone – no vapor is visible inside it's bone-dry in here but even without liquid it's still a substantially large heat sink and copper does a good job of dissipating heat all on its own I think it was definitely worth taking off the screen even if the phone didn't quite survive on paper the ROG phone – is one of the best phones of 2019 with its impressive screen and large battery but with that open rear ventilation system that's more for looks than anything else it's also very much the least water-resistant phone we've seen in a very long time would that major lack of water resistance and a phone this powerful make you nervous let me know down in the comments don't forget to check out Turo next time you need to borrow a car you can use that rig 15 code to get $15 off come hang out with me on Instagram and Twitter and thanks ton for watching I'll see you around

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~.

Nubia Red Magic 5G – Unboxing, Setup, and Review – (4K 60P)

hi everyone Aaron here for ZolloTech and
this is the Nubia red magic 5g this is their latest gaming phone with 5g
technology built in and comes in between five and six hundred dollars or so and
is available with eight gigabytes or up to sixteen gigabytes of RAM with 128 or
256 gigabytes of storage now let's flip this over and unbox it here so we'll
take the packaging off here or the wrapper and let's go ahead and open it
up and inside we have the phone itself now it should have an under the screen
fingerprint sensor we'll take a closer look at that in a moment and let's take
this packaging off and we have three different envelopes or three different
packages so inside this one we've got a SIM card removal tool then we've got our
Quick Start Guide it says here just some information about the phone and then a
warranty card as well now on the right we have a charging brick and this is not
the United States variant but there will be a United States variants USB a 2 USB
see look this back and then in here we should have our USB C charge cable so
and here is the charging cable it's a nice red color again USB a 2 USB C so
let's set that aside and take a closer look at the phone itself let's go ahead
and take the wrapper off the phone this is a really interesting color you can
see it says 5g here you've got your cameras so let's go over the specs of
the phone we'll take a look at the design the specs and everything else now
around the outside edge we have a little switch here this is usually a gaming
switch we have a little vent on the side so it's got air that goes through one
side and out the other to keep the processor cool
then we've got some pogo pins for some other accessories they sell on top we
have a microphone and a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack on the right again we've
got these shoulder buttons just like last year's Nubia
magic 3s you've got shoulder buttons here you've got your vent or intake and
then you've got a power and volume button here and they feel like they're
metal but I'm not sure if they are on the bottom we've got a speaker and then
we've also got our USB C charging port along with a microphone now we also have
a SIM card slot as well now we'll pop out the SIM card tray and
we should have dual SIM capability so on each side we can place a SIM card
there is no expandable storage in this phone now let's take a look at the specs
now this is the 12 gigabyte model with 256 gigabytes of storage internally we
have a qualcomm snapdragon 865 along with superfast ufs 3.0 storage and ddr5
ram so not only is the display 144 Hertz it's six point six five inches it's an
AMOLED display 1080 by 2340 with 388 pixels per inch and it supports DCI p3
now not only is it a hundred and forty-four Hertz but it has a 240 hertz
touch esports ultra smooth display it also has 300 Hertz touch sensing
capability on the triggers now on the back we have a couple different cameras
we have a 64 megapixel Sony sensor with an F 1.8 wide lens we also have an 8
megapixel ultra wide and a 2 megapixel macro camera so that's pretty
interesting we can also record in 4k 60 or 8k as well on the front we have an 8
megapixel F 2.0 wide forward facing camera as well internally we have a 4500
milliamp hour battery that supports fast charging with 55 watt chargers and
should charge at about 56% in 15 minutes it will charge 100% in 40 minutes if you
have that fast charger now it also supports Wi-Fi 802 dot 11a b/g/n AC and
a X or Wi-Fi 6 and bluetooth 5.0 a2dp apdex le so this is packed full of specs
for half the price of what you get with a samsung s 20 ultra for example but we
don't have that huge camera array on the back so let's go ahead and boot it up there we go now we'll go ahead and set
it up so we'll connect to a mobile network now it's connecting and checking
for updates and one thing I noticed is it says 90
Hertz in the upper left of the display so it says detected a new version update
now so we'll go ahead and update and it says it optimizes Play Store
compatibility and camera applications so let's go ahead and update this now it's
asking if I want to copy apps and data I won't copy I'll set it up as new and
it says just a sec checking info and we can sign in with Google or do that later
we'll skip that for now and just try to get to the home screen as fast as we can
here now this does have an under the screen fingerprint sensor so it says
unlock with fingerprint we'll hit next so we'll go ahead and setup the
fingerprint sensor every time we do it you can see the screen gets brighter
that's kind of interesting so it's must be optical similar to what oneplus has
says fingerprint add it will hit next and it says adding finishing touches
just to give you a size idea here is the red magic 5g next to a pixel for Excel
so you'll see the size difference thickness wise it's actually not too big
it has a nice curved edge to it so it's not too much bigger but the display is
bigger now if we put our finger on the fingerprint sensor there's an
interesting animation and we won't copy here now this is the home screen of the
nubia red magic 5g and we'll go to settings here after it updated and you
can see this is the 12 gigabyte variant with 256 gigabytes of storage running
Android 10 with the March 1st 2020 security patch so it's actually pretty
up-to-date already maybe there'll be a new update very soon with the latest
security patch now it's also running at red magic OS at version 3.0 now the home
screen skin looks like this it's pretty familiar as far as any other you've seen
in rent magic now a couple of things to know this is very similar to the Google
now launcher so if I slide over here we've got basically our Google now view
but you can't swipe up to go back you have to swipe back to get there so it's
kind of interesting and then it's highly customizable so you can see I have it
set to 144 Hertz for the display and you have that option to change it from 144
Hertz to 90 or 60 and leave it in the status bar so you can change it to 144
for eSports change it back when you need to save some
so that's really nice as well now in the notification in status bar we can also
show our network speed so right now it's gonna give us our overall speed if we're
using network connectivity and it's just nice that we have all these little
customizable options that are really key to people that are playing games on
their phone and if you don't like the gestures that I've been using you can
get back the navigation bar switch it out to whatever you'd like and other
than that you can see we have neo AI for smart game neo speed that helps you with
gaming and you've just got all these really nice effects such as colorful
lighting effects or low power off and all sorts of things now another
interesting thing is other than the lighting we have the cooling fan and we
can tell it to turn on to max speed or even have it turned on for quick
charging so it keeps the battery cool and then you can have it shut down as
well so it's really neat to have all of these different options and it's just
something that's a little bit different than anything else you see out there and
you also have some options such as always-on display they have some nice
options here but the thing that sets this phone apart from others that I've
seen is not its skin but rather it's a gaming mode so in the upper left we have
this little switch here we flip the switch and we go into our game mode and
so you can see we have access to the cooling fan RGB LED strips so if we go
into that we have an RGB LED strip on the back so we'll wait for it to turn on
or off it it lights up this part right here
I can turn it on or off if you want to use that and then also the cooling fan
on or off and now we also have some other options if we swipe from the right
we have options for our fan we have our display switch being switched to 144
Hertz just by tapping on it we also have 4d shocks so it's supposed to be a
better haptic feedback motor and then access to things such as blocking calls
blocking messages or taking a snap of the phone basically a screen shot and
then it also tells us what our CPU and GPU are running at and it's got a bunch
of really interesting stats that you don't normally see on other phones so
it's definitely set up for gaming now let me go ahead and add some games so we
can take a closer look now I've added a couple different games to this phone and
let's go into the gaming mode now as soon as I do this you're going to hear
the fans kick so we'll rotate it here and it's not
terribly loud let's see if you can hear this now that's what the fans ounds like
you can turn it off with this button here and then it kicks back on and it
seems to do a good job you can actually feel air blowing out of the bottom here
so let's go ahead and try a game now because this is in the game mode here
you can go through swipe through your games add a game you can sign in and
then if you swipe to the right it also again shows you what your CPU usage is
at you can assign your triggers and things like that it's really nice so
let's go into asphalt 9 first it seems super fast as well and the sound is
quite good but I have it turned down for this video now this game is super smooth
at 144 Hertz you can see that everything is running nice and smooth it's in full
resolution everything's turned all the way up and the phone is staying fairly
cool but it is getting a little bit warm and let me go ahead and go back to the
game space here you can just swipe in at any time and the back of the phone is
warming up a little bit but that's to be expected when playing something
intensive and ramping up the CPU and GPU let's swipe over and go to call of duty
and check that out so this game is super smooth on this display it looks great it
looks better than I remember it on the Xbox 360 and in general it's very
playable no problems here the framerate super smooth you've got that fan keeping
everything nice and cool now if we want to exit the game we can just swipe to
the right go to the game space and we're back to the main screen flip our switch
here and we're back to the home screen the fan shuts off and you just use the
phone as a normal device and all of your settings go back to normal it's a really
nice way to do a gaming phone and it's pretty interesting now as far as the
camera is concerned on the back we have some interesting options so if we go
into the camera you'll see that we have some zoom options so let me put the
pixel 4xl underneath so you can see this but we can go to 3 X 5 X and then 10 X
and it's actually pretty clear it's not too bad and we also have the option for
macro photos which you don't really see too often so what you need to do in
order to get macro is you actually go into the camera
family here and then in the camera family you go to macro and so maybe I
want to get really close to this looks like it's in focus there we go we've got
some focus peaking which means just the red outline here that lets you know
you're in focus and you can see we have a macro shot so if we zoom in it's
actually pretty nice so it's nice to have that as an option on the camera and
then also you have some really nice video options as well
so if we go into the options here you see we've got grid and things like that
let's see if we can go back let's go back to photo or video here rather then
go back into options and you'll see for the resolutions we have all the way up
to 8k but it recommends it for outdoor use because it probably needs a lot of
light so I've set it to 4k 60 so that's really nice it's got that option so
let's go ahead and see what it sounds like we'll go ahead and hit record and
now we're recording from the red magic 5g so this is what it sounds like just
recording out of it it does seem to have some odd focus issues from time to time
it doesn't seem like it's dual pixel autofocus but this phone is fine for
most people as far as photos and video but it's not going to be something like
an S 20 or a pixel for excel for photos at least with this current version of
software so here's my video on the Nubia red magic 3s let's go ahead and take a
listen to the speaker's quick and turn them up they go nice and loud but they
do distort it high-end so it's pretty good you've got a nice stereo sound as
well that's it for the Nubia red magic 5g let me know what you think about this
color and the phone in general in the comments below for its price it's really
hard to be as far as what you get for specs gaming you've got a fan you don't
have an IP rating really that's going to protect it because you have open vents
and things but in general it's a solid package for the price and you've got a
hundred and forty-four Hertz display which is really impressive but again let
me know what you think in the comments below I'll link this wallpaper in the
description as I always do and if you haven't subscribed already please

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.

Razer Phone 2 – First Impressions!

hello good people Eber here with
Hardware Canucks and this is the razer phone 2 now at first glance you're not
going to notice a major difference between this and it's a previous or
predecessor the razer phone because from a design standpoint it's pretty much the
exact same thing except for a few minor increments in terms of features and
let's talk about that right after message from our sponsor the new master
keys MK 750 keyboard comes with a comfortable magnetic wrist rest
beautiful RGB light bar on the perimeter and perky lighting control with a
variety of Cherry MX switches and the bottom type-c connection Coolermaster
doing it right check it out below okay so what's really new with the razer
phone – well let's start off with the design and to be honest it's not that
different from the original razer phone I think we noticeable difference that
you'll see compared to the original phone is that the rear side of the
device has been replaced with Gorilla Glass 5 instead of the traditional matte
black aluminum finish this adds support for wireless charging but given that
this is a glass back you can definitely expect scratches and it being a slippery
eventually over time because it's obviously a surface that picks up grease
and fingerprints quicker than aluminium surfaces so that's again something to
keep note of now given that it's 2018 we had to expect some sort of RGB lighting
on a smart phone of this caliber and that's exactly what's going on here so
the logo hidden underneath the Gorilla Glass 5 back is RGB LED and it's
controlled through Racers chroma app pre-installed on the device there are
three learning effects that you can play around with so there's spectrum cycling
breathing and static effect and you can customize the colors – up to sixteen
point seven million colors which is certainly a nice touch so if you're
looking for a smart phone with RGB lighting this is certainly the one to
get apart from the rate of part from the ROG phone then is that I still have no
idea on availability or launch so yeah RGB where's our phone – they've also
added ip67 water-resistant rating which is a welcoming update from the original
RAZER phone it's certainly on IP 68 certified but
you've got to front-facing speakers razer actually had to redesign the
speaker the system to accommodate that certification so it's certainly and
welcoming and refreshing update from the original RAZR phone but aside from that
from a design standpoint it's again very much identical to the original RAZER
phone all right so spec wise you're getting a
snapdragon 845 processor a gigabytes of RAM 64 gigabytes of storage and a four
thousand milliamp hour battery again the only incremental upgrade internally is
that processor bump you're still getting the same amount of RAM compared to the
original RAZER phone you're also getting the same battery capacity so again not a
significant upgrade on that department as well
but what they have included is a new vapor cooling chamber design internally
so it actually dissipates the heat a lot better so that's again something to be
validated in the full review the next thing to talk about is the display and
just as expected it's not a significant update from the original RAZER phone so
you're getting the same 5.7 inch qHD plus display with the 120 Hertz refresh
rate and my god it looks amazing in person if you're someone who's used to a
traditional smartphone especially like myself who has never actually used the
original RAZER phone I was certainly I just fell in love with
this display right away because the fluidity and the experience that you get
just browsing through the Android operating system and of course gaming
for the most part is just fantastic I didn't get some hands-on time with that
gaming as well and it's again a breathtaking experience you really have
to feel it by yourself in person because the hundred twenty Hertz display is just
quite amazing especially on a mobile device and it's really hard for me to go
back to a smartphone that uses a traditional 60 Hertz display because the
phone feels slower and it just doesn't complete that experience now razer did
increase the brightness of this display by 50 percent so you're looking at 580
nits or just 318 it's on the original RAZER phone so that's certainly again a
incremental upgrade but certainly refreshing to see on the second
generation razer phone software wise this phone is rocking Android 8.1 Oreo
out of the box which is kind of disappointing because I was expecting
Android Pi and you know for phone that's launching at the end of 2018 it just
doesn't make any sense for it to ship with 8.1 but Razer is promising Android
Pi sooner than later not just for the razer phone too but
also for the razer phone one so let's just hope that happens but other than
that you are getting a pretty close to stock Android experience without any
bloatware so that's awesome there are no third-party skins or anything like that
in fact razer gives you full customization options so it is rockin
nova launcher by default but most specifically you do have a theme store
so if you want to play around with different themes that's there but
there's also Razer cortex which is in a dedicated application that makes you
switch between different modes particularly for you know it balanced a
performance mode that lets you just conserve battery life for longer usage
or if you want absolute best performance you can go for the max performance mode
which will give you the highest frame rates but that's definitely gonna take a
little bit of hit on battery life now one of the major drawbacks of the
original razer phone was the camera performance because it just wasn't up to
the standards especially when compared to the flagships from last year and
razer is trying to address that with the razer phone too because they've
implemented dual 12 megapixel cameras you've got a standard lens and a
telephoto lens with a different aperture variants but they do come with optical
image stabilization but most specifically you'd also get you know
extra features like po'trait mode better low-light performance and there's also a
beauty mode integrated on this device so again those are some of the things that
I'll have to validate for the full review so definitely stay tuned for that
but I'm gonna keep my expectations neutral because from my initial testing
or with my initial hands-on with this device I just wasn't impressed with the
camera performance so let's just wait and see I'm just gonna spend some time
with the camera on the razer phone to to give my full thoughts on that and
perhaps I'll be able to compare it to the note 9 and the pixel 2 so again
definitely stay tuned for that so guys that's pretty much a story with the
razer phone 2 and honestly it's an incremental upgrade over the original
razer phone just to quickly run over the updates you're getting a new finish on
the back its now Gorilla Glass 5 with the RGB lat logo and it supports
wireless charging slightly improved cameras it also comes with eyepieces own
water-resistant rating a private display slightly better sounding speakers
and that's about it and of course it's gonna be priced a little bit higher so
the original RAZER phone retailed for $6.99 for the base model the razer phone
2 is gonna be starting at $7.99 for the base model which is certainly an
expensive investment but if you look at the smartphone market in general I think
it's priced competitively especially when you compare to the pixel of 3 the
galaxy note 9 p LG v 40 so again it's a smart phone specifically targeted
towards a certain market if you're a gamer and if you're looking for an
all-in-one entertainment device this is certainly something to look into because
that one in 20 Hertz display is certainly something that I just can't I
can't take my eyes off said I will be spending some time with this device just
like my other devices especially like the note 9 just to see what the
experience is like and if I really like it particularly the cameras those are
some of the things that I really want to test to see if it's actually worth the
$7.99 price tag so certainly stay tuned for the review on eBay with Hydra

Razer Phone 2 Teardown – The Vapor Chamber is Incredibly Cool

The Razer Phone 2 is one of the coolest phones
I've taken apart in a very long time. Wait till you see this vapor chamber – it's
incredibly impressive. The clear version I made was cosmetically
disappointing, but the guts of this phone more than make up for it. It's time to review the Razer Phone 2 from
the inside. Let's get started. [Intro] One good thing about having the clear version,
is now you can actually watch how deep my knife penetrates every time I remove back
glass covers from phones. All I ever use is the tip. Any deeper, and fragile stuff might get damaged…like
the battery or the power ribbons. The Razer Phone 2 has 10 screws holding the
top plastic plate over the motherboard. The screws are different, so I'm keeping them
organized as I set them off to the side. Then the plastic lifts up just enough for
me to unsnap the back LED panel Lego-style ribbon connector. And the whole thing can be removed from the
phone. The RGB pad is pretty interesting, especially
since it only illuminates specifically around the snake logo when the phone is turned on.

Apple really dropped the ball by not making
their Apple logo glow on the back of the iPhones. I'll pull off the metal bracket over the battery
and charging port plugs and set that off to the side. And then I'll unclip the battery. The bottom half of the phone has another 10
screws, once again, all different sizes. And then amazingly, the whole battery and
wireless charging combo very easily unfolds out of the phone, exposing part of the massive
copper vapor chamber.

And Marquez will be happy to see a larger
and stronger vibrator this year. It's not taptic, but should still get the
job done. The battery is a 4000 milliamp hour monster,
and very much appreciated that it's not strapped in next to the fragile electronics with a
ridiculous amount of adhesive. Now let's finish unburying the ginormous copper
vapor chamber. There are 2 screws holding on the motherboard. I'll unsnap the charging port ribbon with
my plastic pry tool, along with the side button ribbon, like a little Lego. Then I'll unplug the 3 little wire cables
along the right side – there are a lot of those this year. The SIM and expandable memory card tray are
next. I'll pop that out of the phone and get the
little wire cable on the left side unplugged, as well as the front facing camera. Then the motherboard can lift up and out of
the phone body. Still attached is the screen ribbon cable
plugged into the underside of the motherboard. It's got it's own little silver bracket holding
the ribbon in place. I'll set that off to the side. The gob of thermal paste you see is right
over top of the processor on this phone.

The processor is the part that generates the
most heat. The paste helps transfer that heat to the
top left corner of the copper vapor chamber. The rear cameras are also plugged into the
motherboard. We have our normal 12 megapixel lens with
optical image stabilization. And an additional camera with 2x optical zoom
– the perfect combo. I'll let other reviewers handle the comparisons
and see whether the pictures are good or not.

But hardware wise, this is the ideal setup. The front facing camera has quite a lot of
adhesive holding it in place. It's an 8 megapixel little guy. And now for the top stereo speaker. The Razer Phone is known for it's iconically
large speaker grilles, but interestingly enough, the speakers inside aren't that much larger
than normal. Size-wise the speakers are a bit bigger than
the Pixel 3, but not by much. It does have it's own waterproof mesh over
top with a rubber ring to help keep a tight seal against the phone body. But the interesting thing is the tail end
of the speaker. When you mount a large speaker, like a subwoofer,
it's usually placed inside of a box so the speaker has room to move. A lot of cellphones have speakers in such
a tight box that there's no room for movement so they sound terrible. That's not the case with the Razer Phone. The Razer Phone's earpiece has it's own box
with a large air chamber off to the side that allows for speaker movement. It's pretty cool.

I'll just put this back where it came from. The two little square watertight microphone
mesh slots have green rubber on them. It probably wasn't intentional but it still
looks cool. The vapor chamber is still covered up by some
ribbons from down here on the charging port. There are 2 screws holding the board in place. And then an additional 2 screws on the USB-C
port portion. Then the whole thing pulls up and out of the
phone. It's got a little black rubber ring around
the lip of the port, which is good for water resistance, as well as minimizing stress on
the port itself when it gets plugged in.

The bottom speaker, still smaller than you
might think when compared to the outer grille size, also has it's own air compartment right
next to the speaker. And it has it's own water resistant mesh over
top. And finally we're here: the vaper chamber. Basically the whole area inside of the phone. This copper heat sink is pretty awesome. Having a copper plate this large inside of
a phone is already a huge boost to thermal performance over aluminum or steel. But, as I was removing the plate, you can
tell how thick it is.

Basically as the processor heats up the top
left corner of the vapor chamber, the vapor inside also heats up and carries the heat
away to the far side of chamber, where it cools down into liquid and then flows back
to repeat the process. It's kind of like a heat pipe on steroids. Basically a whole radiator for your phone. Pretty fascinating. And you know me, we aren't going to let this
pass by without exploring the inside.

Peeling back the copper, we actually see physical
liquid, not just gas. Little droplets covering the inside of the
copper envelope. I mean, copper along would probably have been
sufficient. But copper combined with liquid and channels
for airflow is seriously some next level stuff. It's like a waterbed inside of your cellphone. Razer is taking smartphone cooling to the
next level. If you like seeing stuff like this, make sure
you're subscribed. You can see that the half currently opened
up is already evaporated.

But this new flap has all the liquid droplets
still inside. Technology is impressive, and Razer definitely
gets a thumbs up for this one. I don't think I'll be able to reuse the chamber
now that it's been opened up. I don't want any sharp metal edges up against
the underside of my battery. The phone will still work without the copper,
it just won't be as efficient under heavy workloads. The chamber is seriously pretty cool. The 120 Hertz screen can be replaced if needed,
but it's glued into the metal body of the phone, so we'll leave it alone for now since
screens don't normally survive the removal process. I'll get the loud speaker tucked back into
place, and the charging port, along with all of it's screws and associated wire cables.

Before I can set the motherboard back down
though, it needs the screen ribbon cable plugged into the underside, screwed in and secured
with it's silver bracket. Then it's ready to be set down into the phone. I haven't turned on this phone in a while. Pretty sure it's dead from the LED flashing
on the back for a few days.

We'll find out in a second. I'll plug in the large charging port ribbon
cable, clips in like a little Lego, as well as the power button ribbon on the left side. Then the whole cool looking battery wireless
charging contraption can slide back onto the phone. Now that I've seen the insides, I'm way more
impressed with the Razer Phone 2. I'll plug in the LED RGBs, add the metal bracket
over the battery connector, and set down the protective plastics over the motherboard. We should be good to go. I'll plug it in while I get the new back glass
into place. Razer has outdone themselves this year with
the cooling system. And there's definitely a new standard in town
for gaming phones. It's a super solid build. Hit that subscribe button if you haven't already. Come hang out with me on Twitter and Instagram,
and let me know if you have any questions down in the comments.

Thanks a ton for watching, and I'll see you
around..

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
