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
subscribe and if you enjoyed the video please give it a like as always thanks
for watching this is Aaron I'll see you next time

DJI Osmo Mobile 2 hands-on

– So I am recording
this little selfie video with the DGI Osmo 2,
which is a handheld gimbal that keeps your phone
steady and can do stuff like track your face,
track other people's faces, and lets you make way
better video with your phone than you could if you were just holding it with your stupid, dumb hand. (upbeat music) What's amazing about this thing is it only costs 130 bucks, this
is the original Osmo Mobile, and it was retailing for about 300 bucks. The differences between these is this is a little bit lighter, it has
a longer lasting battery, which you can no longer remove. There's a few other differences
worth talking about too, but to me, the most
important difference is that this thing, in addition
to holding your phone in landscape mode can be rotated and you'll be able to
shoot in portrait mode. And as everybody knows,
portrait mode video, portrait mode selfies,
portrait mode whatever is the way that most people look at videos on their phone these days, on Snapchat, on Instagram and so on.

(upbeat music) Now if you're familiar with gimbals, a lot of the stuff I'm about to say to you is stuff you already know,
but it's worth talking about because this thing is so much cheaper than any other gimbal, it's 130 bucks so a lot more people are
gonna pick this thing up. So what this thing is
for is for stabilizing your video and giving you better, smoother tracking shots as
you move around the world. Your smartphone probably
already has a bunch of really good image stabilization, but what it doesn't have is the ability to just hold it up with one hand, way far out, and have these smooth, easy, good tracking moves.

It's so good! It also probably can't do a thing where you can track
somebody's face with it, and then it will handle
the camera movements for staying centered on their face while you pan the camera around. So you can get a bunch of shots that you wouldn't be
able to get on your own with just a phone, it's pretty cool. Now the thing you should
know about the current demo that I'm doing right here
is right now I'm using beta software and it gets
a little buggy sometimes. (laughs) Because this thing can
shoot in portrait mode, and because it can also
handle larger phones, you need to spend a
little bit more time than you might be used to adjusting it.

There's a few adjustments you can make. The first is on the clamp,
which is just sort of a, you know, spring grip
here, which isn't great. There's also another knob over here so that you can move it in and out, and the reason that that
matters is you're gonna be doing a lot more of it,
because when you switch from portrait mode to
landscape, and vice versa, you're gonna need to recalibrate
this thing every time to make sure that it stays balanced. Now I would say that's a
big knock on this thing, but the last one couldn't
even do portrait mode, so it's not that big of a deal.

So as I've been saying
over and over again, this thing, the DGI Osmo
2 is only 129 bucks, it's available for pre-order now, and if you're really looking
to up your video game with your phone, it's
almost an impulse purchase. I think a lot of people
are gonna be picking this thing up..

Sony Xperia 1 review: a tall order

The thing that I like about Android is there can be so many
different kinds of phones, just a lot of weird choices. But lately, it seems like
there are really only two choices, at least in terms of screen size. There's regular and there's extra large, which is why I was so excited
to try this phone right here, the Sony Xperia 1. I mean, just look at this good tall boy. It's got a 21:9 aspect ratio, which makes it relatively
narrow and super, well, tall. I think it's a fascinating phone, and it's way nicer than
I expected it to be. But I don't think it can
really justify its $950 price. Let me tell you why. Now, a lot of people would
like to have a big-screened phone, but they're put off by
how big these phones feel.

And that's the reason I like the Xperia 1. It has a big screen, there
is no doubt about it. It's 6.5 inches. But it's quite a bit narrower
than this OnePlus 7 Pro here. So you get the benefits of
seeing more stuff on your screen, like on the web or on Twitter, without the drawback of
feeling like you have a big honking glass slab you can barely wrap your fingers around. This phone is also really good if you like to do split-screen apps, which… I don’t know, I guess
people still do that. I never do. Anyway, it's nicer to hold, but that doesn't make
it a one-handed phone by any stretch of the imagination.

You're still going to need
to use your second hand to reach the top of the screen. Sony has a couple of
software tricks that help with how tall this phone is, but neither of them are great. You can double tap the home button to make a smaller version of the screen. Or there's this other thing with… Er, wow. What are you
doing there, Chuckles? Huh. Sorry, let's back up. Or you're supposed to be able to tap either side of the screen or swipe on it to do other stuff. It's called Side Sense,
and it kind of sucks. I can never get it to
work when I want it to, and it pops up all of the time when I don't want it to.

Now the reason that Sony
says it made this phone at this weird, tall aspect ratio is for watching movies, and Sony says that it
has a 4K HDR OLED screen. It also has, quote, “professional
level color reproduction.” So it can be in the DCI-P3 color gamut. It can also be in the BT.2020 color space if you care about that. And it has the D65 white point. There's this whole “Creator Mode” thing. Basically, Sony is
trying to make this phone appeal to people who really
care about video quality, both watching it and recording it. But Sony, the thing is, if you're going to do that, this screen should get way brighter. It is way more dim compared
to other OLED screens. Anyway, yeah, I will say
watching a 21:9 movie on this phone with its Dolby
stuff, without letterboxing or weird camera cutouts, is great. But the truth is that most
of the video that I watch is not 21:9.

It’s stuff on YouTube, and so I still end up
having big black bars on the left or the right. Or, if I expand it full screen, I end up cutting off people's heads. Now, I do think this phone is pretty good from a build quality perspective. It's got Gorilla Glass and IP68. It's got some bezels,
but they're not too big, and it's just nice to hold. But, you know, of course
there's no headphone jack. But there's no getting around how it being this tall
makes it really awkward. It's so tall, it couldn't
fit in my pocket. I was sitting down, and it just slid right out of my pocket and clattered on the concrete, which is why there are dings on the edges of the
phone on our review unit, which is sad. The buttons are also awkward.

They're all on the right side of the phone and, I don’t know, the fingerprint sensor is separate from the power
button for some reason. And sometimes it gets a little dirty and you have to wipe it off
before it will actually work. I do like that there is
a dedicated camera button. But overall, when I'm
trying to use this phone, I just end up hitting the wrong button, like, all of the time.

On the back, there are
three 12-megapixel cameras. There's a regular, a 2X
telephoto, and a wide. Sony put some nice optical
image stabilization on the main lens, and you know what? Finally, Sony has made
a phone with a camera that's pretty good. It's not quite as good as a Pixel 3 or a OnePlus 7 Pro to my eyes, but it's finally respectable.

I do wish that the
telephoto was more than 2X, but the wide angle one, it's really fun. I kind of love it. But I don't love Sony's camera software. The wide angle thing makes you pick between prioritizing image
quality or distortion. The auto made doesn't do HDR by default, and there's just a bunch of other settings that just really look
and feel kind of silly. Anyway, let's get into the results of what I actually get
out of these lenses. I think that Sony
prefers leaving detail in, even though that also
leaves in a bunch of noise. It also doesn't do as
aggressive HDR as I would like unless you have to, you
know, manually turn it on.

But the thing that did surprise me is that even though there's
no dedicated night mode, sometimes it actually
really nails it anyway, even if it's incredibly dark. Now, you can shoot 4K, and
that's one of the reasons this phone exists. And so Sony also
included a Cinema Pro app that lets you really dial
in all these manual settings for shooting 4K video. Unfortunately, the 8-megapixel camera on the front is junk.

It's really not good. I don't know, man. If this phone didn't cost $950, I'd probably be a little
bit less nit-picky, but you know what? It does. So I am. In terms of software and performance, I actually don't have a ton of complaints. It's a fairly clean version of Android 9 with just a few bells and whistles. It has a Snapdragon 855 processor so it's fast, and there's 6GB of RAM, which is decent, but not stellar. I am a little bit grumpy that there's only one storage option:
128GB of storage. If you're going to want more, and especially if you're
going to want to shoot 4K, you're going to need to expand it. And you can because there's
a microSD card slot. Battery life is
average-ish for big phones. I'm getting over four hours of screen time, and it's lasting through a day, but there's only a 3,300mAh battery in here, and I kind of feel like that's not enough.

I would be happier with that if there was wireless
charging on this phone. But no, there's not. It does do fast charging, but one neat thing Sony does is it won't fast-charge when it knows that you’re charging overnight, which helps with the overall
life span of the battery, which means it should last longer, a year or two for now — at least in theory. Now, after all that, if you're still interested in this phone, you should also know
that Sony as a company has kind of been deemphasizing phones since it hasn't been
really successful with them in the past few years.

And that kind of makes sense, and I also think it makes sense for Sony to try something new and move into this niche
of making tall boys, like this guy right here. Now, of course, you can spend less money and get a better phone
like the OnePlus 7 Pro, but what you can't get is any other phone in this tall aspect ratio, so I like the idea of this form factor. I think that it should exist in
the world of Android phones. So I'm glad that Sony's
trying to make 21:9 happen. But I don't know that I'd
recommend this particular phone to anybody. If you really, really,
really love the tall screen or you really love what
Sony does with video, then maybe.

But there's no getting around the fact that this is an expensive phone. For $950, I expect more,
and you should, too. Hey, thank you for watching. Do you want a tall phone? Let me know in the comments below. Also, if you're wondering if
there are other tall phones, we did review the Xperia 10 last month. It's kind of the same idea but cheaper and also, it's really bad for a whole other set of reasons.

Surface Duo first look: Microsoft’s foldable Android phone

– Remember Windows Phone
from way back when? Well Microsoft is kind
of getting back into making smartphones. This is Surface Duo, and it runs Android. Not Windows or Windows Phone. That's right. Microsoft is making a
Surface phone with Android. If that sounds surprising, it's because it really is. But we'll get back into the Android side in a minute. Duo is part of two new futuristic dual-screen devices that
Microsoft announced today. And they're coming in Holiday 2020. Surface Duo has two 5.6 inch displays that fold out into an
8.3 inch device overall. And it's just 4.8 millimeters thin. It folds like many two-in-one laptops thanks to a 360 degrees hinge. And it's designed to
get more done on the go. It looks tiny for this type of device, and it felt kind of like a Galaxy Note in my pocket. Now, I wasn't allowed to play around with the software on this device, but it looks and feels
like a tiny pocket tablet that's also a phone. The difference between this and any other Android phone, except maybe the Galaxy Fold, is visually obvious.

But Microsoft thinks this is part of a new category of devices that allow people to do a lot more with tablets and phones
than they do today. As part of this idea, Microsoft also announced a
Surface Neo device today. Which has two larger 9 inch displays. The Duo and the Neo share a very similar design, but they don't share a
common operating system. Neo, the larger dual-screen device, runs Windows 10 X, and has all your familiar
desktop and tablet apps. The reason this isn't
running Windows Phone is because Microsoft gave up on that operating system years ago, when it couldn't convince developers to create apps for it's devices. Now we sat down with Microsoft's Chief Product Officer, Panos Panay, on the Vergecast this week, to talk about why Microsoft
chose Android this time for the Surface Duo.

– [Panay] Well because, those are the apps you want. I don't know how to answer it differently for you. Because there's hundreds
of thousands of apps and you want them. Asati and I talked about it, it's about meeting our
customers where they are. And I don't think the, you know, the mobile application platform's going anywhere any time soon, you need the apps. – So you'll get the apps you'd expect from a phone inside
the dual-screen device, but how is this different from any other smartphone? I mean it obviously looks different. And the main idea is making use of these two displays in ways we're only starting to see other Android phone makers explore. You could run a game on one side, and a game pad on the other, or multi-task by dragging
and dropping content between apps. Microsoft hasn't thought
of everything you'd do with the Surface Duo just yet, but that's why it's announcing it now so developers can fill in the gaps.

They're really aiming to introduce a new form factor here, and a way for a device to
adjust itself on the go, no matter the task. We've seen foldable devices from Huawei and Samsung, but the Duo has two separate displays that are made of glass, rather than foldable plastic. Which given the issues
with Samsung's Galaxy Fold, that might be a good choice right now. Microsoft has been
working on this hardware for three years, and Panos Panay tells us that this device won't change much by the time it debuts late next year.

The real key question will be whether Android app developers create the apps and
experiences that really take advantage of this dual-screen device. And whether consumers
want this type of hardware in a phone form factor in the first place. That's why Microsoft also has its largest Surface Neo device running Windows. And it really feels like the company wants to offer a Surface at every shape and size. Microsoft also seems to be implying that the operating system really doesn't matter for
Surface devices anymore.

And it's willing to partner
with Google and others to offer what makes sense. So does that means that
Android is the future for Microsoft? – [Panay] (clears throat)
No no no no no no. You want to give customers what they want in the form factor that they're using. We've learned this, you know, the right operating system
on the wrong product or the other way around, pick your words, but what's the right operating system for the form factor? And in this case, in mobile devices, Android's
the obvious choice. But anything above that, Windows is everything.

Superior for me. – So, will the Surface
Duo and the Surface Neo combine in the future? Will there be a smartphone
that turns into a tablet, that then turns into a laptop, then you dock and turns into a real PC? We're years away from anything even getting close to that. But it opens up the questions about where this dual-screen and foldable hardware is going exactly. And they're really hard
questions to answer right now. Microsoft will now need to convince app developers and consumers that these dual-screen devices are truly the new device category that we've
all been waiting for.

Wherever things end up, it looks like Microsoft want to be ready at every point with Surface. You want a phone that's a little bit more than a phone that
has an extra display? Surface Duo. You want a tablet that
transforms into a laptop? Surface Neo or Surface Pro. Microsoft is covering
every hardware base here, and it's leaving it up to you to decide what device you actually need.

– [Panay] You know, I think like anything, look at the product you think is most interesting to you and where you think you can be more creative, that's what I would push. And I think this products gonna be there next year. Not in a hurry, you know, hang out. Take photos or do whatever it is you do on your phone today
for a little bit longer and then, see if we can convince you that you can be more
creative on this product. – It's been a crazy day of Surface devices and there's a bunch of hands-on videos you should check out

Vivo Nex Dual Screen – Triple Camera – Durability Test!

Remember that phone from last year with the
motorized pop-up camera – the Vivo Nex S? Well Vivo is back at it again with another
super innovative design, with both a screen on the front and back of their latest flagship. In the box comes with headphones, charger,
and a thick bumper case to protect the phone from drops. It's time to see how much thought Vivo put
into durability. Let's get started. [Intro] This is the second dual screen phone we've
seen. With the Nubia X, switching screens was a
carefully calculated, simultaneous double button press. But with this Vivo phone, pressing one power
button on the right side of the phone will activate whatever side is facing you much
easier. It also has a 3 finger side swipe to switch
between the screens on the go, which is as equally easy. So the whole point of a dual screen phone
is to one, look cool, but also to get rid of an notches or hole punches in the larger
front display. With an additional screen on the back, all
selfies can be done with the higher quality rear main cameras, instead of having lower
quality front cameras taking up space inside of a notch.

The main camera on this phone has 3 LED lights
for better lit pictures. Two of which can activate a circular lunar
ring for more even light during pictures or videos. You know, the same circular lights that YouTubers
might use during makeup tutorials. I'm going to leave the makeup tutorials to
the experts, but a ring light is definitely a cool addition to a cell phone camera. The included case has a solid fit. I always have a case on my personal device,
so I'm glad Vivo added some extra protection in the box. Speaking of protection, there is also an included
plastic screen protector on the front surface. The guys over at Vivo are getting all the
bonus points today. As you know, with my systematic durability
test, we check the scratch resistance of the screen with Mohs scale of hardness.

It's a pretty safe bet that if a company isn't
advertising sapphire, it's probably going to be tempered glass, which is where we start
seeing faint scratches at a level 6, with deeper grooves at a level 7. Vivo was the first manufacturer to come out
with an under display fingerprint scanner, and the same technology is here in this phone
as well. Underneath the front screen, protected by
the front glass, the display shines up onto your fingerprint. And the little sensor underneath the display
can tell if it's your finger or not so you can unlock the phone securely.

With two screens, we need double the testing
since there's twice as much real estate to cover. Let's scratch test the back. Dbrand should start making clear skins for
these dual screen phones. This side as well is covered by a screen protector,
which makes sense. Screen protectors not only stop scratches,
but also add a cushion layer of impact protection so brittle glass doesn't shatter right away
during a drop. This time after testing all the different
levels, we still find tempered glass covering the back panel, resulting in scratches at
6, with deeper grooves at a level 7.

The rear design of the Vivo dual screen phone
is unique. Instead of a metal lip around the camera lens,
the whole circular unit is glass and protrudes just slightly over the top of the rear glass
panel. With it's own little screen protector, the
circular camera lens is very solidly adhered to the rear panel. Even with some prying from my razor blade,
it doesn't want to come off. The back panel, surprisingly, does have it's
own earpiece, a bi-directional earpiece speaker shooting out both the front and the back. This will be fun to see from the inside. It's a thin little sliver, especially here
on the front side, to minimize the bezels. But the grille can come off on it's own. There isn't much adhesive holding it in place.

It's definitely interesting to see speaker
grilles on both sides of the phone. Speaking of sides, the material inside of
this dual screen sandwich is metal, the long volume button, and power buttons are both
made from metal. The bottom of the phone has a loud speaker
and USB-C charging port, along with a dual SIM card tray, with a protective rubber ring
around the opening to help keep water out. The Vivo Nex Dual Display doesn't have an
official IP rating, but it's good to see some steps were taken. This hole is protected and I'll have to check
the other holes from the inside during the teardown.

The far side of the phone is also made from
metal, along with the second tower button with Vivo printed on the surface. And what's this? Dost mine eyes deceive me? A headphone jack. You gotta love a phone with all the features. Another interesting design choice is at the
edge of the screen on both the front and the back are surrounded by a layer of plastic. Plastic as we know is much softer than metal
or glass, so it does provide a nice cushion layer between the hard metal sides and the
clear brittle glass. So if it does happen to get dropped, it might
not break as easy.

It's a good thing, and not something you would
notice at first glance. With the previous dual screen phone I tested,
the Nubia X, it had an LCD front panel, while the smaller rear panel was AMOLED. This phone, the Vivo Nex Dual Display, has
a larger rear screen than the Nubia at 5.5 inches and it's still a 1080p AMOLED. It's kind of sad when you think that the backup
screen on this phone is still higher resolution than Apple's iPhone XR. No permanent marks were left on the display,
even after my lighter was in place for 45 seconds. It might be the dual thickness of the clear
camera lens glass. But even with all that heat, there is no separation
of the rather unique circular lens. There's a 12 megapixel main camera, a 2 megapixel
depth sensor, and another 3D camera called TOF for Time of Flight for facial recognition
are all back here.

The TOF camera has some pretty cool 3D scanning
capabilities. I jumped into the camera app to check it out. It has the standard measure of banana features
that a lot of phones have. But it also has this pretty in depth 3D face
scanning unlocking thing that Vivo claims is better than Apple's. But I think we can all agree that this is
either super creepy or super awesome. Isn't that right, Digital Jerry? [Jerry nods] The front screen is a massive 6.4 inch, no
notch, 1080p AMOLED display. This time with different placement of my lighter,
and without the dual layers of glass, a white burn mark appeared at about 27 seconds and
never did quite recover. And now for the bend test. This phone has no moving parts, just one solid
hunk of glass, metal and plastic. And the whole contraption seems very heavy
and very solid, with only a slight bend during the flex, but with no creaks, snaps, kinks,
or cracks anywhere in the body, even when bent from both directions. I like where things are headed. This whole flagship phone with dual screens,
3D camera, headphone jack, and in-screen fingerprint scanner is still cheaper than Apple's budget
iPhone, the XR.

And Vivo's phone comes with double the internal
memory. Vivo's got my attention. I'm impressed and I'm excited to see what
they come out with next. Hit that subscribe button if you haven't already
so we can find out together. And come hang out with me over on Twitter. Thanks a ton for watching. I'll see you around..
