iPhone 12 Pro Durability Test – Is ‘Ceramic Shield’ Scratchproof?!

today we're going to durability test the iphone 12 pro and its ceramic shield covered front screen you might have noticed that the box is a little bit smaller this year you know how apple has slowly been removing things with each new product launch first was the headphone jack then the hdmi on their laptops and now it's the charging brick itself that's gone it's always exciting to find out what's going to disappear next apple definitely keeps you on your toes honestly though it's probably a good thing their 5 watt inbox charger was the slowest charger of any phone anywhere and now there's no reason not to upgrade to the faster charging anker nano which costs less while still charging three times faster all while still keeping the same size as the old brick thanks to anker for sponsoring this video now iphone users will get to experience the fast charging that androids have had for years i'll leave a link down in the video description that'll give you a 10 percent discount off the anchor nano because you know if apple isn't going to hook you up anchor for sure will now it's time for the durability test let's get started personally i think it's a bit sus that apple got rid of the free inbox charger at the exact same time they came out with a new type of magnetic charging which conveniently cost forty dollars by the way i'm sure it's all just a coincidence though just like how the headphone jack disappeared at the same time the wireless airpods came out you know totally normal behavior you can see that inside the magnetic circular attachment is a group of coiled wires that transfer power to the other set of coiled wires inside of the phones we'll have to see what those look like for realzy's when we open them up for the teardown video but while we're here on the outside we can see where the magnets are located with some metal shavings the magnets form a perfect circle around the outside of the copper coils thumbs up for that i think it's kind of cool even if you aren't able to keep your credit card and phone in the same pocket anymore it's probably a good idea in general though to keep metal shavings away from your phone if you remember the earpiece and loudspeaker are also both made with magnets so if any small shavings get sucked up inside of the phone it can tear the speakers to shreds i'm sure the ip68 waterproofing will help keep the dust and shavings out but still it's better safe than sorry speaking of being safe rather than sorry apple has stepped up their phone design quite a bit this year with a lot of focus on the screen apple says their new ceramic shield is a step beyond glass but it's also important to listen closely to their carefully structured buzzword-filled sentences apple said they've included nano ceramic crystals within the glass matrix to dramatically improve toughness and yeah they might have found a new way of forming glass to make it tougher but those new crystals are still within a glass matrix which means it's still glass no matter how many other words they add to the sentence and if glass is still glass you know the rest apple doesn't mention much about scratch resistance just drop protection and toughness they also use the phrase along with our new design it makes the iphone tougher than ever so it's not just the new glass i think a large part of that four times more drop resistance comes from the design with the glass totally flush sitting just inside the surface of the frame a piece of glass has six sides front back and all four edges and with five of those six sides protected by this phone frame in a way that most smartphones are not built it really does make this iphone 12 pro more shatter resistant so i do believe apple's claim about the glass being four times tougher but i think the protective design has more to do with it than the buzzwords do i've scratched hundreds and hundreds of phones in this exact same way and apple's ceramic shield is still scratching at level six with deeper grooves at a level seven it might just be my imagination but it does look like the level six scratches are a tad more faint but they're definitely still there ceramic shield is not the product that will bring us to the next level of mohs hardness one thing that can always be certain though is that as apple removes things from the box the high price will always remain the same the only way to really keep your screen scratch free and resale value high is with a screen protector i've installed thousands of screen protectors from my pre-youtube phone repair days and it only takes a few seconds the biggest obstacle is the dust underneath the glass but there's an alcohol wipe and a dust sticker in the box to help mitigate that the screen protector is held in place by a thin layer of nano adhesive so there's no residue left on the glass when it's ever removed and since the iphone 12 pro display is totally flat the precision cut screen protector makes it look like it was meant to be there just like you wear safety glasses to protect your eyes and a mask to protect your lungs a screen protector is a cheap way to avoid a lot of future regret i'll leave a link for dbrand screen protectors down in the video description plus these aren't your normal plastic rubbery screen protectors either it's an additional layer of protective tempered glass and as we know glass is glass and glass can it's much easier to replace a 10 screen protector than it is to replace a 270 display i'll leave that link in the description now if i'm being totally honest i do have to say that the iphone 12 pro is one of the cleanest looking and best feeling phones that i've held in a really long time and the frame is surprisingly hard to scratch the sides of the iphone 12 pro are made from stainless steel and since my razor blade is also made from stainless steel they're having a hard time damaging each other the paint is obviously still going to scratch off most phones are usually made from softer aluminum aluminum's like a 3 or 4 on most scale so this stainless steel at most five is quite a bit more resilient [Music] it's just the paint that's not the silver colored version of the iphone is going to hide this kind of damage the best there is no expandable memory of course there never was the magnets on the back can be a handy sim card removal tool holder and then of course at the bottom we still have our lightning port [Music] i'm also a big fan of the textured glass back here you can hear the difference my razor makes when it goes from the rough frosted texture to the smooth glass on the apple logo the textured glass has the ability to act like sandpaper to other objects since glass is a very hard material softer objects like this penny will leave marks behind on the glass but the marks aren't permanent it's just dust caught on the rough surface and can be rubbed away the top camera bump is relatively reasonable this year when compared to samsung's monstrosities the bottom lens is a 12 megapixel two times optical zoom telephoto then we have the 12 megapixel ultra wide in the center and the main 12 megapixel sensor up top and each camera lens is again covered with its own sapphire crystal lens cover it's still getting marks levels six and seven but you already know how i feel about that the screen of the iphone 12 pro is a 6.1 inch super retina xdr display meaning it's oled and has a slightly higher resolution than 1080p a cool thing though is that even after 30 seconds from the heat of my lighter the pixels on the oled are still unfazed with zero damage other phones start to turn white and not recover now i'm no materials expert but ceramic is a slower conductor of heat than glasses meaning that the heat doesn't transfer through it is easy so it is possible that apple's new screen material is keeping the heat away from the pixels this doesn't mean quite a whole lot as far as lighters go but it does add a little validity to the new ceramic crystal material claim that apple is making the oleophobic coating is definitely evaporated though so don't try the burn test on your own phone what about the bend test i mean it's probably easy to guess but with the more solid stainless steel frame and recessed glass on both sides keeping the box rigid the iphone 12 pro is a non-flexing tank of a cell phone and i'm impressed no bins kinks or cracks of any kind in the frame apple is and always has been premium and expensive but at least lately the materials have started to match the price tag a bit better i used my last phone for over three years and i've only had my current phone for about a year so i'm not ready to upgrade just yet maybe someday i'll try out the iphone again but i'll wait till next year's iphone 13 pro max ultra plus 6g no screen edition before i make up my mind i'll leave links in the description for that stuff apple forgot to include like the charger and screen protector let me know what you think of apple's new phone down in the comments you cool with them leaving out the charger come hang out with me on instagram and twitter and thanks a ton for watching i'll see you around

I Bought The Cheapest Smartphone on Amazon…

I've used a lot of famous and expensive smartphones like the iPhone X, the Samsung phone , and the Pixel 2XL in my pocket. These phones are pretty expensive, but in reality, not everyone can afford it. A lot of times when I unbox a money saving phone the radios in these internationally sold phones don't work that well I want to find the cheapest smartphone on Amazon but there are a few rules 1.

Can't be used can't be 2. Must be able to buy it on Amazon Prime 3. Must be able to support LTE 4. Must be a smartphone 5. Use Android if possible This is the phone cost me $49.99 Alcatel onetouch IDEAL From the box, the phone is still running the old version of Android , but the old version of Android is turned over to see the 4.5-inch 854×480 resolution screen on the back. As I said before, 4G LTE is 200W in the front and 800W in the rear. Camera 1.1GHz Octa-core processor Android version 5.1 Back to the era of 5.1, this is more important, the supported 4G signal frequency band supports both WCDMA and GSMA 850, 1700, 1800, 1900 American residents can use it with confidence by inserting a SIM card and as long as 49 Oh! Open the box and see what the $49 is.

Stop thinking about those good-looking phones that are 10 times more expensive than this one. First, get the device body, the removable battery! There is also a piece of paper in the front, so you know what it will look like when you turn it on The micro USB port at the bottom does not need to consider any symmetry issues at all. It needs to be placed where it needs to be placed. I guess there is no fast charging battery. This 1780mAh battery cannot be bought on Amazon. This is the back cover and the AT&T logo is posted.

What is the rating of this phone on Amazon? Seems like 3.5 stars? That's right, it's 3.5 stars. Based on this price, you shouldn't have high expectations. Simple and rude hhhh Good! Power on! Okay that's stupid bezels oversized bezels We don't care once we don't care this reminds me of the small Pixel 2 oversized capacitive buttons that I'd get sprayed on are common on older phones no glass backs, no wireless charging I went to see how much electricity it got from the factory, the screen is too dark hhhhhh The keyboard speed is a little slow, look at the difference hhhhhhh Also, I just want to connect to wifi, he told me it takes two minutes hhhhhhhhh What the hell is the same viewing angle, these two The screen is literally going down and down a $50 phone every day, the screen is completely invisible Wish the brightness could be turned up a bit, oh so much better! It 's not an OLED for a comparison dude I'll remind you, this phone is only $49 and I'm bragging that this phone has some pre-installed software and it's not that fast.

Time to look at the camera. It's a little nervous. The shutter lag is a bit high. ……The latitude is too low. Either it's too bright, or it's dark. The front camera is probably bad. It's not like human skin and zombies. However, the details are still wide and you can zoom in and out. But not being able to touch to focus the camera is really bad to test the speakers may be good may be bad latest Unbox Therapy video is this a Facebook ad? Come use Facebook. Have you heard of Facebook? have you heard of it? guys? The maximum brightness is 480p. Turn up the volume . The speaker of this phone may be accidentally covered on the back. Of course, the speaker is very bad. Of course, look at youtube . Positioning is for those who have never used a smartphone.

For those people, it's okay. After all, he has achieved the experience and price that a smartphone should do. How to balance it? I definitely don't want to buy a $49 phone if I can but $7,890 or even $500 is a bit pricey for us on the low end and you can indeed see some phones that improve that quality on Amazon in the US , I will definitely not buy it for $49. It should sell for one or two hundred dollars. There are some mobile phones at this price. It is a huge improvement compared to it. Don't buy this mobile phone. I bought it as a tape recorder or a backup machine. I don't hate the experience of this mobile phone. Just $49 Jack is more than $49 for a lunch.

This video is co-sponsored by Shanis Bennis and ProFlowers. It's perfect for Valentine's Day. There are flowers, chocolate strawberries, and truffles. Pick two, you make the decision. See who wouldn't be happy to see this. The flowers are beautiful and great, but you know, your Uncle Lewis prefers the chocolate-dipped strawberries in front of him. He's drooling, open the box and look at me! The strawberries also had nuts on them! This looks too delicious . The fragrance of strawberries is very good. Anyone who smells it will be in a good mood. First, try one with chocolate on both ends. ~ uh~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ u uh…… uh…… ……… So delicious! It feels like it's Valentine's Day and you really have to try delivering the package to your loved one. Your relationship will definitely heat up. It's that simple, just buy one for her and you're done.

Just buy two together. Maybe she prefers truffles. , look at this beautiful truffle, go buy it now, don't wait until the next Valentine's Day There is no better Valentine's Day gift than this, with flowers and chocolate strawberries, so let's get started.

iPhone 11 Pro Max Teardown – Tiny Motherboard & BIG Battery!

the iphones have always been some of the most complicated phones to take apart you'll see why over the course of this video but there's no way we could let this iphone 11 pro max flagship slip by without seeing the insides this is the most water resistant mainstream smartphone money can buy right now so it's time to see what helps keep water out and how repairable it really is let's get started [Music] [Applause] [Music] since basically day one of the first iphone's existence apple has been in the business of trying to keep people out of their phones and this new iphone appears to be no different it has the same proprietary pentalobe screws holding the bottom of the screen to the stainless steel frame of the phone it uses a screwdriver that's pretty easy to find online but most people don't immediately have it on hand i'll leave a link for a good tool kit in the description looking closely at the screw it has black thread locker filling the gaps between the threads and the phone body this helps keep the screw in place as well as helps keep water out the biggest opening for water to get inside the phone though is the screen there is adhesive surrounding the whole rectangle in order to pull the screen off i'll need to use heat to soften that adhesive and a strong suction cup to pull on the screen while adding some leverage with my pry tool between the plastic lip and the stainless steel frame as i work my way around either side of the phone lifting off the display you can see the substantial amount of stringy gooey black adhesive that holds the parts together i'm taking special care to avoid the ribbon cables hiding along the edge of the right side these cables are about as fragile as paper and can be torn very easily you'll get a better look at them as the screen lifts off they're down there through those gooey strands at first glance things look pretty standard for the iphone a ton of screws and the massive l-shaped battery thumbs up to apple for adding battery life and thickness to their phones this year instead of trying to go thinner i'm also glad that the ribbons are all off to the side last year had a random ribbon cable coming from the center that made the screen removal quite a bit harder the front camera and face scanner are tucked up in the top of the phone i'll remove these six y triple zero screws holding the middle plate over the top of the screen ribbon connectors one of those screws is easier to access from the other side of the screen if you close and scooch it over a bit and take a look at that motherboard it's lego connector central up in here happy birthday to myself i'll remove another four y triple zero screws that hold the top protective metal plate and side ribbon guide down over the camera units and there are two more screws holding down the tiny plate over the battery connector before i unplug that battery though i want to make sure this whole thing still works and that nothing was damaged during the screen removal tapping the power button shows the apple logo and the phone turns on which app should i test to make sure the phone still works maybe i should use today's sponsor audible that was convenient audible is actually one of my favorite apps the book i'm currently listening to is called the man who knew the way to the moon and is one of the audible originals it sounds more like a verbal documentary than a narration i usually adjust the speed to be a tad faster than normal so i can get through more information quicker it's a true story about the guy who convinced nasa to use space rendezvous points instead of one gigantically massive rocket it's super interesting you can get a free audio book plus two audible originals when you try audible for 30 days with the link in the description audible.com jerryrig or text the word jerryrig to 500 500.

The audible original titles come from diverse categories like theater journalism literature and the documentary styles like the one i'm listening to now even if you decide to cancel audible at some point in the future you still get to keep your books they're yours to own forever audible.com jerryrig or text jerry rigged to 500 500 and thanks to audible for sponsoring this video i'll unclip the battery connector like a little lego from this smorgasbord of lego connectors the battery actually has two connectors one is found down below by the charging port so when clipping both of those is a good idea at this point i just didn't know the second one existed until later i'll unclip one of the charging port ribbons and then i'll make my way down to the three main ribbons holding the screen to the body of the phone the screen is significantly more simple this year than it has been for the previous years which is definitely appreciated it only has three screws holding the earpiece to the back of the display apple throws phillips head screws randomly in here and there throughout the phone so for those of you following along at home this is the third type of screwdriver we've used so far the earpiece folds down which lets us pry away the front sensors from the glass replacement parts will become more common and get cheaper as the phones get older i'll try to link some in the video description as they become available screen replacements aren't super difficult on iphones and with the disappearance of 3d touch the display is actually thinner and leaves more room for the larger battery speaking of which i've had a few requests for a straight up clean video shot of the internals so feel free to screenshot this crop it and use it as your phone wallpaper if you want just make sure to tag me on twitter if you do let's remove the front camera and the face id death scanner thingy it's got two ribbon cables to unplug wait nope there's three last one kind of just snuck in there this little unit has the front 12 megapixel selfie camera the one that can film in 4k and do those slow fees and also has the infrared dot projector and secondary camera for the face id it's a pretty cool setup and i'm glad it's not attached to the screen it makes repairs easier the three rear cameras each have their own ribbon cable attached to the motherboard i can unclip each of those and then the whole contraption comes right out of the phone apple really has made their design much more modular this year and i'm a fan up at the top we get the normal 12 megapixel camera with optical image stabilizing down at the bottom we get another 12 megapixel two times optical zoom camera which also has optical image stabilizing and over here on the side we have a 12 megapixel wide angle camera with no physical stabilizing i feel like this is the perfect setup and the arrangement i would personally like to have someday when i upgrade from my galaxy s8 i feel like apple has finally brought way more features to the table with smartphones this year and are finally competing at the same level of other flagships let's get this motherboard out i'll unplug the charging port ribbon but before i can pull that out once again i need to switch back to the y triple zero screwdriver there are three screws running down the right side keeping this cable with the metal bracket tucked to the side of the phone the next three screws are a bit trickier these are called standoff screws and they hold the motherboard in place if you don't have a standoff remover i can usually take a flat screwdriver bit and just twist the screw around in the circle from one side and as the screw comes out you can see that a standoff screw is actually a screw that has a screw hole inside a screw within a screw they are annoying to work with but apple uses them to save space and stack things on top of each other speaking of saving space once those screws are out and the sim card tray is removed the whole motherboard is ready to come out of the phone and this my friends is it this is the whole thing the brains and brawn of the whole iphone operation is sandwiched between these two stacked boards one thing i'm pretty impressed with on the iphones this time around is that all the solder connecting the circuits inside of this motherboard is made from 100 recycled tin you might be thinking nice work apple on recycling that tiny drop of tin but because apple is using recycled tin and not only their iphones but the macbook air the ipad air and the ipad mini it adds up to over 29 000 metric tons of tin ore that they don't need to mine from the earth it's a pretty substantial achievement and i'm glad apple's doing it let's keep going deeper the taptic vibrator engine is down here below the battery near the charging port it's got three little screws holding it in place and i'm going to set those off to the side to help keep things organized a lot of phones you can take apart and just toss the screws held or skelter but since basically every screw in here is a different shape and size it's very important to keep them organized with the metal plate gone and the vibrator unclipped from the charging port we get our first close-up of the taptic engine it's nice of apple to include their logo in case we forgot what phone we're taking apart this little guy is also using 100 recycled rare earth elements since we don't have an unlimited earthly supply of these magnets i'm glad apple is now going through the effort to reuse and recycle parts of their phones i'll remove one more screw and pull off the metal plate over the microphone hole and check out all that white adhesive over the hole to help keep water out of the microphone it's time to remove the battery apple once again has added the magic pull tabs which i'm thankful for prying out permanently glued batteries is extremely dangerous and even if a pride and bent battery doesn't spark and start on fire right away it'll still be damaged internally and will start to puff up and expand over time these pull tabs make battery removal much safer yeah they are still pretty fragile and break every now and then but it's still much better than what samsung is currently doing with the permanent adhesive and their phone [Music] apple has three pull strips at the end of each side of the battery [Music] and i was successful enough with most of them that the rest of the battery can be lifted up unharmed this is a 3969 milliamp hour capacity which is quite an improvement over last year's 3174 milliamp hours for real apple has come out to play this time the loudspeaker comes out next with its two screws holding it in place you might have noticed so far that while the iphone seems complex most components are still modular and come out relatively easily you can see the substantial amount of black adhesive holding the loudspeaker to the frame of the phone like i said in my durability test video this iphone 11 pro max is the most water resistant smartphone on the market right now while most manufacturers have water tested their phones to a depth of 1.5 or 2 meters deep for 30 minutes just to get that ip68 rating apple has gone above and beyond and tested the new iphone 11 pros to 4 meters deep for 30 minutes double the depth of what everyone else is doing hold on for a second though check this out the loudspeaker is full of a ton of those little white sound balls i assume these white balls help fill the space inside of the tiny little cell phone speaker to keep it from sounding like a tiny little cell phone speaker i'll take out the last nine screws for the charging port and get back to that ip rating even though apple went twice as deep as everyone else they still only got the same ip68 rating you're probably like why didn't they just go up a level to ip69 and that's because ip69 is a totally different test instead of submersion it's a high pressure and temperature water jet test and pretty irrelevant for cell phones cell phones get accidentally submerged all the time but getting accidentally blasted by a fire truck is far less common the charging port is finally out of the phone that was definitely a nightmare i don't want to repeat the iphone has so many intricate components it's not so much a difficult phone to repair it's just a very complex phone to repair and one wrong move or screw in the wrong place could wreck the phone if you do end up breaking your back glass and don't have insurance you can either pay apple 599 to fix it or just buy a replacement housing and swap over each component individually yeah it's going to be pretty extremely painful either way apple's still kind of being a big jerk where that's concerned i think you should just get a case before it breaks i'm pretty impressed with apple for stepping up and going above and beyond the bare minimum that they usually do this time apple has given customers the specs and features they're paying for and that always hasn't been true in the past of course in my opinion androids can still accomplish more i'm not ready to switch size just yet but i am glad that apple has stepped up with enough performance to match the price tag and is doing it with recycled and recyclable materials we can all appreciate and support that i'll get the camera units put back into their slot they are all housed in the same metal block so it's impossible to get them out of alignment and the same thing goes for the front cameras finally the front screen with its three ribbon cables can plug into the tiny motherboard and i can start throwing down all those metal plates over the lego style ribbon connectors the last thing that gets plugged in is the battery and this little metal bracket that covers the top then we can turn the phone back on and once again i'm just as surprised as you are that this thing still works i for one am glad that apple has started participating again in the smartphone race and even more so for using recycled components innovations in both areas are good for everyone i'll be looking into the recycling efforts of other manufacturers in the future so hit that

iPad mini Bend Test! – Do ALL Tablets Break?!

The iPad lineup is getting pretty crowded
lately with the iPad, the iPad Air, the iPad Pro, and this new 2019 iPad Mini that Apple
just released. They all do pretty much the same thing. To get any real work done, you'll still need
a laptop or a desktop computer, but sometimes it's nice to have a bigger screen to read
or watch movies on. Today though, we'll be assessing the durability
and build quality of the littlest iPad. You already know how the iPad Pro handled
this durability test. Let's hope the Apple's iPad Mini is built
a bit stronger. Let's get started. [Intro] You might be thinking to yourself, 'Man, that
iPad Mini looks kind of old. What year is it?' And you're right. The exterior design hasn't changed much in
the last 7 years. It has that lightning port on the bottom instead
of USB-C, but does come with a fast charger in the box…something that Apple has yet
to include with their iPhones.

The overall appearance of the new iPad Mini
is the same as it was back in 2012, with its large bezels and curved edges, but if it works,
it works. Let's start with the scratch test. I'll use my set of Mohs mineral picks to check
the hardness level of the front surface. We've seen clear plastic screens scratch at
a level 3. Glass screens would scratch at a level 6,
and sapphire screens, like the Kyocera DuraForce Pro 2 will scratch at a level 8 or 9. The iPad Mini 5 looks like it's covered in
tempered glass since we see the industry standard scratches at a level 6 with deeper grooves
at a level 7. The 7 megapixel selfie camera is up here in
the top Texas-sized bezel protected with the same scratch resistant glass. Little guy is unable to do face unlock, but
does film in 1080p. The bottom bezel includes some hardware we
haven't seen since 2015 – a physical clicky home button. Yeah, it's still scratch resistant and does
that fingerprint scanning thing. Apple must just have a bunch of old parts
they're trying to get rid of with this new release.

The gold colored 2019 iPad Mini is made from
metal, along with both of the volume buttons up here at the top. Speaking of old school hardware, let's welcome
back the headphone jack. Apple trying to milk an old design for more
money does have it's perks for the rest of us. Maybe they'll bring back the iPhone SE this
year too. The iPad Mini does have one little microphone
hole up at the top, but we'll come back to this later. We have more metal over here on the left side
of the tablet. You can see that silver glinting through under
the gold anodizing.

So far, no big issues. The bottom of the iPad Mini has dual stereo
speakers and the same lightning port that Apple's been using for the past seven years. We should see an update to USB-C at some point. One thing I am glad to see though is that
there's no weak points along either of the iPad Mini sides. The longer and thinner something is, the more
prone it might be to breaking like the iPad Pro. With it's microphone cutout on one side, and
wireless charging dock for the Apple pencil on the other side, it made an already fragile
piece of tech even weaker. That's probably why people were getting brand
new tablets bent right out of the box. The iPad Mini doesn't have any of these builtin
deformities on the long sides, just the one microphone hole up at the top on the short
side.

Hopefully this helps the iPad Mini survive
the rest of this test. The 8 megapixel 1080p capable rear facing
camera is a circular inlay with no protruding camera lens. Apple doesn't mention sapphire on their website
for this iPad Mini, but judging by my diamond selector tool and scratches at levels 6, 7,
and 8, they're using the same material they've always been using. No surprises there. One thing that has improved with this year's
model is the front of the tablet is now compatible with the Apple pencil 1 – also 4 years old
at this point. (Everything sold separately.) The back side of the tablet is also compatible
with the Apple pencil if you believe in yourself, but I recommend something a little sharper. I asked on Twitter a few days ago what people
wanted to learn from Art Class with Jerry and Thanos was suggested. As somewhat of an expert in fine razor blade
art, I'll do my best. Bald guys are pretty easy to draw. And here we are…Thanos eating an apple. Not sure if this is pre or post universal
destruction, but it looks to me like Thanos did nothing wrong.

One thing you can add to your tablet before
it gets scratched or after it gets scratched, is a dbrand skin. This particular skin camouflages not only
the scratches, but also the Apple logo…effectively debranding the tablet, making it perfectly
balanced as all things should be. I'll put a link in the description so you
can customize your own phone or tablet. Thanks to dbrand for sponsoring this video. One thing that Apple changed with version
4, and subsequently this version 5, is the outer glass is now glued to the LCD screen
underneath it, making screen repairs quite a bit more expensive. Replacing the front glass on the iPad Mini
3 only cost about $20. Once Apple started laminating the glass to
the LCD, the repair price skyrocketed to the point where people just live with cracked
screens nowadays. Kind of fun. After about 16 seconds of intense flame, the
7.9 inch LCD pixels go black and turn off, but do eventually come back to life and make
a full recovery…hopefully like the Avengers will recover in Endgame.

The iPad Pro failed my bend test catastrophically,
and it's time now to see if the miniature iPad will suffer the same fate. With the initial flex the tablet moves easily
into an extremely compromised obtuse angle, but then locks out and amazingly retains full
functionality. I'm impressed that Apple has found a way to
defy physics. The tablet is still fully functional despite
the massive bend, and this isn't even a flexible AMOLED display – it's an LCD. I'll try bending the iPad Mini 5 back the
other direction, and it pops into place…mostly, but does not allow any flex towards the screen
size. It still surprisingly doesn't shatter or stop
working. There is some adhesive separation between
the glass and the frame. Yeah, Thanos has some curves, but some people
are into that. Apple definitely wins this round. That was quite possible the biggest bend I've
ever seen on a device that still survived.

The iPad Mini is way more durable than the
iPad Pro. I'm impressed. Hopefully this isn't an omen of Thanos surviving

iPhone 12 Pro Max Teardown! – I’ve NEVER seen this before…

today it's time to take apart the new iphone 12 pro max apple's latest and greatest most powerful iphone and also the largest iphone that's ever been made with supposedly a new trick inside that we've never seen before i kind of broke the last iphone i took apart so cross your fingers this one survives let's get started [Music] [Applause] [Music] so the iphone 12 pro max is basically just a larger version of the iphone 12 pro with apple releasing four new iphones this year it does get a little confusing all you really need to know though is that the pro max has a larger screen larger battery and some slightly better cameras which is what we are after today if you remember last time i was trying to remove the screen i accidentally pried up underneath the glass instead of under the plastic frame and broke the display this time i'm making sure to lift the screen up high enough that i can get underneath the plastic part of the display with my pry tools since the screen is recessed this is much harder than it looks the reason we want to check out the camera units inside of the macs is because apple has engineered a new form of image stabilization that we've never seen inside of a smartphone before it's called sensor shift and can stabilize an image at over 5 000 times a second so if this is true it's actually pretty huge and a pretty big step forward in the mobile camera game as we can see my screen is still working so far thumbs up for that we're off to a good start there are four screws holding down a metal plate over the battery connector and screen ribbon once that's off i can unplug the battery like a little lego and then move to the second metal plate that covers the other ribbon connector it also has four screws once that's removed i can unplug the remaining screen ribbon and detach the display from the body not too shabby the cameras are all under this other metal plate but first let's take out the battery usually apple's pull tabs are kind of fun but not so much this time around all of the magical pull tabs keep on breaking [Music] but with a dab of isopropyl alcohol the stickiness underneath the battery dissolves and i can pry the battery out relatively easily the alcohol is non-conductive and evaporates pretty quickly so it doesn't hurt the electronics but still battery replacements could be easier now we can see what the pull tabs are supposed to be doing if we could actually grip them as they stretch theoretically they lose their stickiness and just pull right out from underneath the battery just not this time around now it's time to check out apple's latest innovation in mobile camera technology i know we don't always use apple and innovative in the same sentence but here we are and it's actually pretty impressive so inside the 12 pro max the top camera is the telephoto which does have optical image stabilization where the lens does the moving the wide angle is off the side with no ois and the main sensor is at the bottom and it looks like it does not have ois since the exterior lens is not moving but that's actually not the case the main camera has that sensor shift we talked about earlier which is actually much better and much cooler than regular ois but first let's grab the main camera lens out of the regular iphone 12 pro so we can compare them the regular size 12 pro has its main sensor at the top instead of the bottom the telephoto and main sensor locations are reversed between the two phones but that's not super important all of the cameras are very securely glued into a metal housing so they can work seamlessly with one another when the phone switches camera perspectives popping the camera module out from the housing is difficult but still possible remember we're still working with the normal iphone 12 pro at this point not the max just yet once the main camera is out i can start opening up the camera module this kills the module but if phone carnage made you queasy you probably wouldn't be subscribed like you are right now i can break open and peel away the metal housing surrounding the camera lens and the camera sensor you can see that the camera lens floats over the top of the sensor like a hoverboard from back to the future the top lens is wiggling to compensate for and stabilize the shakes that happen to the phone while you're taking a picture or video this type of ois can stabilize at about 1 000 times a second which is impressive but not quite as impressive as what's inside of the max taking a look at both camera housings we can see that the iphone 12 pro max is indeed quite a bit larger than the iphone 12 pro optical image stabilization has been a big deal for flagship smartphones for the past few years however professional real size cameras like this gh5 sometimes have a type of stabilization that is called sensor shift it's an internal stabilization method that moves the sensor itself to stabilize the image instead of moving the exterior lens it's much faster since it happens right at the pitcher collection point the sensor this technology has only been found in dslrs until now apple says they've included this sensor shift technology on the iphone 12 pro max it's on the largest sensor of the grouping and is just as difficult to get inside of as the regular iphone 12 pro but pretty much anything is possible with the razer blade i'm actually pretty excited to get inside of this one seeing brand new technology from the inside is why we're here once the back metal is off we get our first look at the bottom side of the camera sensor and it is indeed shifting moving around inside of the housing while the exterior lens stays in the same spot it looks like apple has indeed done it they've done something new i'll pop the camera lens off so we can see how it works apple says that instead of the normal 1000 adjustments per second that we see with regular ois this new sensor shift method can stabilize up to 5000 times per second which is a pretty big deal and means we get quite a bit more accuracy the camera lens portion of the housing has several large magnets and when i say large i mean the size of an ant but still proportional to the camera it's pretty big these magnets sit on top of tiny coils that can ever so slightly shift the position of that sensor the sensor shifts around inside of its housing just like we saw on the professional camera and at 5000 times a second it happens pretty fast of course the sensor of the max is a tiny bit larger than the iphone 12 pro which we can see now that they are side by side this means that the larger sensor on the max can absorb a tiny bit more light which is a good thing the pixel size themselves are also 0.3 micrometers larger on the max than they are the regular i'll let other reviewers be the judge of the actual camera image quality but if you want the best of the subtle camera improvements the iphone 12 pro max is where apple has put everything they've got i'll get the phone reassembled to make sure i don't break it this time around well break the important parts you know what i mean the phone should still work without the rear camera modules installed once the battery is plugged in and the metal plates are back in place the phone does indeed turn back on which is a good thing breaking two iphones in a row would have been kind of embarrassing with the cameras missing the camera app does still open up but just doesn't find anything to show us kind of interesting if you think it's fun to see the insights of high-tech technology but also enjoy things like water resistance warranties and your phone still working you might like my teardown skin it's an exact representation of what's inside of your smartphone while keeping all the important bits covered i'll have to update the sensor shift portion around the camera lens because it looks pretty cool but yeah i'll put a link for the teardown skin down in the video description we're covering more than 60 devices now so we probably have one for whatever phone you're using if you're curious about the large wireless charging coil or the ring of magnets you can check out my full iphone 12 pro tear down video where i explain all of that i'll leave a link for that in the description as well i think apple's done a good job this year let me know what you think of the sensor shift technology down in the comments and come hang out with me on instagram and twitter thanks done for watching i'll see you around

Easiest iPhone Glass Fix – WITH LASERS (Not clickbait)

so apple's gonna hate me for making this [Music] video [Music] [Applause] [Music] so we all know that the back glass on the newer apple iphones are nearly impossible to repair even apple themselves charge 550 to repair the back glass on an iphone 10 and 600 to repair the back glass on an iphone 11 and 11 pro it's because the adhesive on their back glass is permanent now they're the only manufacturer that does this most manufacturers have an adhesive that melts away when it gets hot and you can remove the back glass and repair the whole phone for like 20 removing the back glass is so hard and so impractical that's why apple charges 600 to replace it on the iphone 11. in order for a third party to remove the glass it has to be subject to extreme temperatures i've even attempted to take the iphones to the opposite end of the temperature spectrum and use liquid nitrogen today though i think we found something that's more practical more repairable and takes the pain out of removing the back glass and it's all done with lasers [Laughter] so this guy right here is an all-in-one multifunctional laser machine that separates the back glass panel from the frame laser is an acronym for light amplification by simulated emission of radiation the red laser you see on top of the glass right now is mostly just to figure out where the phone is located so we don't start lasering the metal frame of the foam the laser is strong enough that will actually etch the metal so we're trying to stay on just the glass surface once we switch over to the white laser that's where it'll immediately start burning underneath the glass and separating the glass from the metal frame which is exactly what we're after saving ourselves about 500 or 600 apple if you're watching you can totally buy one of these yourselves and drop your prices just a little bit now as the laser is pulverizing all the adhesive underneath the glass there is quite a lot of fumes that come out so this is a vacuum that sucks up the fumes from the burning adhesive puts it through a filter and gets rid of the burning adhesive smell so this setup is from a company called riwa and the software they have included with it works with most every major manufacturer but today we're mostly worried about the iphones because those are the hardest to repair each design is already pre-programmed into the machine all the way from the iphone 10 the 10r the eight the laser can separate the bezel from the screen as well as the back cover and the back cover on the 10 is what we're doing today once i have the laser cut out selected make sure the phone's set in the right spot and then as soon as i hit mark the real laser starts going all the lasering you see happening right now is happening in real time none of this footage is sped up and the whole process only takes about five or ten minutes one pass with the laser underneath the glass gets rid of the bulk of the adhesive and we can do a second pass just to remove any of the remaining after that we can start removing the glass shards from the frame a laser is a concentrated light beam and that concentrated light energy can be absorbed by some objects but not others the laser would pass through the glass just fine but as soon as it hits the adhesive or the paint on the back of the glass the energy is converted to heat and starts pulverizing that paint and the adhesive and turns it to dust the higher power of the laser beam the more damage it can do and that is it the laser has removed the paint from underneath the glass so now the glass can fall away from the phone for the most part so you can see here the laser design is cutting out the black portions and that same design left the space for the wireless charging pad as well as some sensitive bits down here along the bottom but those sensitive bits don't have adhesive behind it holding it to the glass panel so we're just fine so now the laser has run its course we can take a look at the phone and see exactly what the laser has done taking a thin metal pry tool in between the glass and the frame of the phone i can slowly wedge the pieces of glass out away from the back now in a perfect world if the glass was completely crackless the laser would have gone through and disintegrated the layer of adhesive between the glass and the metal frame you can see the pulverized paint and adhesive getting on my fingers the laser has literally burned everything underneath the glass to ash but where cracks appear in the glass the laser refracts and doesn't quite burn away the adhesive so there's still some prying to do but it's still much easier than any method we've tried so far like extreme heat or liquid nitrogen now apple has designed their phone in a way where the glass panel sits underneath the camera lens which poses a slight problem for removal because that camera lens is welded to the frame and we want to leave that intact to make it an easier repair i'll slowly chisel out the glass from underneath that welded camera lens depending on what glass you buy there are third-party glasses that fit underneath this camera lens i would recommend though that you buy a glass back that fits over the camera lens i'll show you what i mean in a second it just makes the repair much easier because you don't have to deal with that lens so obviously i'm not a professional i'm just showing that the machine actually works someone who does this on a regular basis would do a much cleaner job but the technology is pretty fascinating so now we have all the glass shards away from the phone the phone itself is still working still functional even though the back glass is removed and now it's time to add the new glass it'll be good as new so when it comes time to select a piece of glass for your phone there's a couple different options one is you can get the glass with logo or without the logo apple's been pretty anti-repair from the beginning so the vendors that sell the glass with the logo tend to disappear if you're a business doing this on a regular basis you might want to buy the glass without the logo that way there's no copyright issues it's a d branded you could say the second thing to look out for is the cutout of the glass this white panel here you can see has the exact same cutout as the original piece of glass meaning we'd have to unweld the camera lens put the glass down and then glued the camera lens back into place which is a much more difficult repair so i recommend buying the piece of glass that has a cutout large enough to slip over top of the camera lens and then sits down snugly inside of the frame it's a much easier repair and no one's really going to notice the difference the adhesive i'm going to use to adhere the back glass to the phone is called e8000 it's a multi-purpose jewelry adhesive that adheres glass and metal i'll apply it to the metal of the phone in basically the same pattern that apple used initially and then do a super thin bead around the edge of the foam before i clamp the glass down into place there should be some seepage out around the sides of the phone this will help with water resistance even though i would not trust the phone to be water resistant and before the adhesive cures which is about 4-10 minutes we'll use some isopropyl alcohol to clean up the seepage from underneath the glass we want to make sure most of the overflow goo is gone before it has time to dry it's easier to clean up when it's wet you might be asking yourself what about water resistance even though we've applied the glue in the same pattern that apple applied the original adhesive water resistance isn't something that you want to trust in the first place much less after it's been broken and repaired you should keep your phone away from water either way one thing to keep in mind though with this laser machine is that the more cracks or the more shattered your phone is the harder it is for the laser to get through the glass if your glass is pretty much obliterated the laser is going to go down and get refracted all over the place and not burn through the adhesive underneath the glass so the less cracked your back is the easier it is for this machine to work either way though this machine brings the repair to a much more practical and sustainable level it's doable so each of these back glass panels costs about 20 bucks now granted we did have to buy a 2 000 machine but for a repair shop doing a lot of these on a regular basis it's a substantial improvement and i'm a huge fan of where the technology is headed lasers are pretty cool so obviously this repair is a bit more complex than your average tear down and requires some pretty expensive equipment but it's good to know that the repair is possible and that there are people out there doing it for much cheaper than apple repair is an option as much fun as playing with liquid nitrogen with the king of random was using this laser separator is much easier i have a feeling these machines are going to get real popular real quick i'll leave a link for these down in the video description so you can check out the current pricing as with all technology i'm sure the price is going to go down as time progresses if you have any questions leave them down in the comments come hang out with me on instagram and twitter and thanks a ton for watching i'll see you around these right here are all apple watch displays every single one of them my buddy's done so many apple watch repairs that he turns them into artwork

Unboxing The World’s Smallest Phone

My goodness. I like this mysterious package. It’s always exciting to open the box, but I happen to know what’s inside. It’s a product prototype sticker that has attracted a lot of attention on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform. This is not, this is The business card is still their CEO’s business card. Throw it away ♂~ The smallest mobile phone in the world is so small that it’s unbelievable. ZANCO tiny t1 The smallest mobile phone in the world. It's the "smallest" mobile phone. This is smaller than those. Synchronize contacts and music on your mobile phone. Monochrome screen voice changer. 3 days standby time.

Built-in Bluetooth mobile phone plugs into a Nano-sized card. It can store 500 text messages. This mobile phone has a voice changer. You can become male and female, children, old cartoon characters, teenagers, Optimus Prime Duck, EVA robot WALL·E robot, Rap guy and Rap girl are starting to become fun. Let’s take a look at this stuff. How small is your child! WOW! It’s so small that it’s unbelievable. Am I dreaming? It seems that there is a speaker SIM card inserted from the side on the back. Compared with this, I feel that the Nano card has become bigger and smaller than my thumb. It is about the same size as the SD card. It is about a coin. It is bigger than a small lighter. The ketchup bag is much smaller, about the size of two pieces of chewing gum, which is too small! With a micro USB cable for charging, there is also a card pin, which sells for $55. You may be thinking, who is the user group for this thing? I feel that this is a fun thing for people who will try all kinds of things .

I took this out at a party. Everyone was stunned. They would definitely be stunned to make a phone call with this thing. The buttons on the phone are better than me. His fingers are much smaller, Jack, what do you think? hhhhhhh This is Pixel 2XL. Of course, the two phones have different goals. But if you look at the comparison, this is too small . The boot time appears. When the battery is full, I need to insert the SIM card. Try to make a call. Woolen cloth? Looks like I have a text message . Let’s try to make a call. Will you have your cell phone number? Did you hear that? Not bad . It's connected. That's weird. Oh WOW! The speaker is quite loud Will: Yo~ Hey man, your voice is very clear. Will: Uh, your voice is also very clear. Really? I didn’t expect this thing to have a good call quality. You too, I feel very clear that I don’t need to bring my mobile phone like a secret agent. Just bring this and put it in my socks. If you want to go for a jog, but you’re afraid I have a phone call, but I don’t want to take such a big phone out.

You need a smaller phone, or should I try a voice changer? Okay, I’m going to change positions with Will, Will, your low voice sounds like a robot but it feels weird Things, for example, when you think about sending text messages, it’s surprisingly good to make a scary call. hhhh What the hell, this phone is not black yet. It’s $50. You can buy a normal phone, but it will definitely not be the smallest in the world. For those who like to collect, buy this as a gift for him, he absolutely loves it.

Glass Only Apple Watch 4 Screen Fix – NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE!

So the Series 4 Apple Watch with its rectangular
design and curved glass edges, looks pretty sleep and pristine unless, of course, it's
shattered. Replacement screens can cost almost as much
as the watch itself unfortunately. But what if replacing just the top glass
were an option? Today I'll show you that replacing just the
glass is indeed an option…while at the same time showing you why this repair should never
be attempted by mere mortals. Personally, I've tried multiple glass-only
Apple watch repairs before this one, each time failing catastrophically.

This time around I'll have some extra help
from a guy who does this on a regular basis. He's found a way to make these impossible
repairs possible. But still, without experience, I'd say about
99% of people who attempt this project will fail. Now that the pep talk is over, let's get started. [Intro] Removing just the glass on a smart watch or
cell phone is like trying to separate two potato chips that are glued together without
cracking either one of them. The concept of course is simple, but the execution
is near impossible. It's the brain surgery equivalent of smart
phone repairs. The initial trick is that the glass curved
edge of the Apple Watch Series 4 does not have any part of the display panel underneath
it, nor does it have the finger sensing digitizer under the curve. It does however have a super fragile square
ring around the bottom edge of the glass that rests up against the metal for the Force Touch
feature which is kind of essential to the functionality of the watch.

I'll show you what that looks like in just
a second. This is going to be one of those videos you
got to watch all the way through till the end. I'm not going to use any heat yet because
heat can damage the Force Touch ring by causing it to delaminate. So I'm gently pulling away the tiny cold glass
shards with my fine tip tweezers. Is this tedious? Yes. But remember we are working around layers
of technology that are more fragile than potato chips, so slow and steady wins the race. Once we have these smallest glass chips pulled
away from the frame, we can slide a super thin piece of stiff plastic between the glass
screen and the Force Touch ring, taking special care not to damage the fragile ring while
sawing my plastic back and forth to help it slip under the glass and slice through the
adhesive that's holding it to the black Force Touch sensor. Pulling up a sliver of glass at the wrong
angle can put pressure on the display that's under the glass and destroy it. It's like trying to diffuse a bomb that could
obliterate the watch at any second.

Also keep in mind that holding down the side
button for too long literally calls the police. Ask me how I know. Obviously, the more cracked the glass is,
the easier it is to work on because tiny slivers of glass can pull away easier. If the display ends up breaking with black
splotches or the touch sensitivity stops working, the only option at that point is to replace
the whole screen instead of just the glass, which is what we're trying to do here today. Remember, we still can't use heat yet because
of that Force Touch ring – it's still adhered to the metal frame. Every now and then I would run into a snag
along the glass edge requiring me to swap out my piece of plastic or grab my tweezers
to shimmy out another piece of glass. I've been at it for about 45 minutes now,
going slow and removing each bit of glass individually.

These watches are expensive, but if I can
salvage this screen by replacing just the glass, I can save quite a bit of money. I'll add each sliver of glass to my glass
collection off to the side until I have another opening big enough for the thin piece of plastic. I'll pop it in and start slicing between the
glass and the Force Touch ring.

This is a terribly tedious repair that I wouldn't
wish upon my worst enemy. It might be stressing you out a little bit
that the watch is still turned on at this point, but as long as I don't slice my plastic
too deep into the watch, the inner cables should be just fine…nothing's around the
edge. I'm leaving the watch turned on so I can easily
test and see if I've broken the internal potato chips or not. Once that screen is broken, there's no point
in continuing and I'm better off just buying the whole screen replacement instead of just
the glass. Finally, after removing all the little slivers
of glass and slicing my plastic under the larger chunks of glass, the whole screen is
loose from the Apple Watch body. Everything is indeed still working at this
point, which means we haven't messed up yet.

Cross your fingers it stays that way. In order to proceed I need something called
a vacuum hot plate. This beauty can suction down objects while
heating them up to soften the adhesive. It's a much more controlled environment than
using my standard heat gun. And since we're working with small and delicate
things, it is a needed piece of equipment for this project. I have tapped over all the holes but nine
so that we can have all the suction in one location.

I'll add another piece of tape over the cracked
Apple Watch screen so air won't slip through the cracks and cause it to lose suction…science. And I'll also turn off the watch. Once the machine is turned on it will start
warming up the adhesive that's holding the ribbon cables to the back of the screen. You can kind of see them pulling up right
here. There are 3 of them all lined up in a row
and this gives us some wiggle room to reach in and unplug the cables. The adhesive holding down the black tape over
top of these connectors is incredibly gooey and sticky and near impossible to remove gently…Thanks
Tim Apple. Normally alcohol doesn't solve problems, but
in this particular case, a drop of alcohol right on top of each of the connectors dissolves
the adhesive, allowing the tape to peel back a bit easier.

It will become sticky again after the alcohol
evaporates. Once the tape is peeled back over all 3 connectors,
I can pop the little black latch up at the top, which unlocks the corresponding cable. The latches themselves are extremely fragile,
just like everything else we've been dealing with today. Finally I'll grab ahold of the ribbons themselves
and the top of the screen, and gently but firmly pull the ribbons off of the screen. It's taken me about an hour to get to this
point in the process and we haven't even started the complex part yet. Going back to our vacuum hot plate screen
separator machine. This time around I'm going to use some high
tensile strength, super thin gold colored wire that I'll wrap around my finger to keep
secure. This wire is going to be placed directly under
the glass layer of the Apple Watch screen, but above the digitizer and screen layers. It's a small fragile sandwich of high tech
components, and if you pick the wrong layer to slide through, the whole thing is destroyed.

I'm not being dramatic, I'm just being realistic. You can see the wire sliding and slicing into
one of the gooey layers inside the sandwich – that's the adhesive between the glass
and the digitizer, and exactly where we want the wire to stay. It's like trying to separate the two halves
of a very expensive Oreo, but if you break the cookie part, you lose a couple hundred
bucks. I'll lift the wire over the remaining curved
glass chunks so it won't get caught on the edge or start cutting into the sensitive bits,
and then gently keep sliding the wire through the gooey warmed up adhesive layer. The whole thing is heated to about 80 degrees
Celsius right now and that's keeping the Oreo nice and soft for the wire to slide through. The suction of the machine is keeping the
watch screen from moving around too much while the wire is sliding through the adhesive.

Once the wire finishes the cut and pops out
the other side, the screen is loose and fully free to pull away from that top glass layer. The cracked glass is now removed from the
display. You can see some of the adhesive residue on
the digitizer layer which is sitting on top of the display layer, but that's pretty easy
to clean off. Nothing looks physically damaged yet so I
think we're still good to continue. The hardest part of the repair is now done…kind
of. The little bit of rubbery adhesive that is
left on the screen can be gently rubbed off, keeping in mind that this is like trying to
rub flavor dust off of a Dorito, and one wrong move can crack the whole thing. A little bit of acetone can dissolve the rest
of those lines and residue on top of the display. But before I go any farther, I want to test
and make sure my little Dorito is still in one piece, so I'll peel back the tape over
those connectors and pop each of the three ribbons into their latches on the back of
the screen.

Nudging them into place with the t-shaped
bracket on the back of the ribbon. I'll turn everything on. The Apple Watch should still function at this
point even without the glass in place. The touch sensitive digitizer is still layered
on top of the screen portion. Yeah, it will be a tiny bit finicky because
it's designed to have a glass layer on top, but the watch should still function in general
at this point.

So far, so good. I'll turn the watch off again and remove the
cables from the back of the screen. Now it's time to add a new layer of glass
to the top. This part is pretty easy actually. Adding the glass requires a special kind of
glue. Once the screen is totally clean from dust
or fingerprints, I'll grab a little Lego to prop the screen up. I'll explain why in just a second. I mostly just wanted to say 'little Lego'
though. I'll clean both sides of the replacement glass
and add a dollop of Loca: Liquid Optical Clear Adhesive. This stuff is pretty cool actually. It's what's going to hold the glass layer
securely to the display. The important thing when setting the glass
down is that there are no air bubbles caught under the glass.

I did catch one air bubble during my first
placement, so I pulled that off and popped it with a pair of fine tipped tweezers and
then tried setting the glass down again for the second time. Resting the display on top of the Lego allows
the display to sit up inside the curve of the glass as it rests down into place. But once again, I caught a little bubble under
the glass as the adhesive flattened out towards the edges. It's not a huge deal, it just means that I
have to gently persuade that little bubble to migrate towards the edge of the glass with
a tiny bit of pressure.

This little bit of pressure is also pushing
out glue on the under side of the glass that I'll have to clean up later, but as long as
the Loca isn't getting on the electronics, I'll be okay. The cool part about this glue is that it's
not going to dry on it's own, it stays liquid and gives me plenty of time to clear the bubble
and make sure the display underneath is totally lined up underneath that glass. The display needs to be centered evenly on
every side, without any of the copper edges showing.

I can shine a light through the underside
of the display to make sure everything is proportional, and then I can hit the whole
thing with a UV or ultraviolet light. These magical rays of artificial sunbeams
are what dries or cures the liquid optical adhesive that's holding the glass to the display. It only takes a few seconds for the glue to
start hardening and then a few more minutes for the glass to become permanently attached
to the display again.

It's pretty crazy stuff. Thumbs up for that. I do have to clean out the seepage from under
the display from when I pressed out that little bubble, but once that's cleaned up I can cure
the underside of the glass to keep the edges from running, and then we're pretty much done. I'll grab the screen and pop all three of
those ribbons back into their corresponding latches and lock the fragile flaps gently
down into place. Then after making sure there's no glass slivers
or old adhesive or dust resting on that Force Touch ring, I can make sure everything still
turns on. I'm just as surprised as you are. How's them apples. The touch sensitivity still seems to be intact. I'll make sure to line the antenna tab on
the back of the screen up with the slot on the motherboard and set the screen down into
place to test the Force Touch.

And it looks like the Force Touch works. For such a fragile intricate project, we definitely
got lucky. I can add some water resistant flexible adhesive
to the edge of the display. I won't trust the thing to be water resistant
anymore of course, but the adhesive is going to hold the glass in place, and it's still
flexible enough to allow the Force Touch to work. This is an absolutely brutal repair. I've done this exact same procedure on a few
smart phones in the past so I'm familiar with the process. And even with my previous experience, it took
me close to three hours to finish this watch. This is definitely my first and last successful
glass only Apple watch repair. If you're wondering to yourself, 'Who in their
right mind would want to do this?' I'll leave a link in the description to my
buddy who helped me with this repair. He actually does this repair for other people
on a regular basis. It's kind of nice to save a few hundred bucks
by fixing a cracked watch instead of buying a new one.

Every version of the Apple Watch is going
to be slightly different. I'm pretty impressed with how good this turned

The Worst Text You Could Ever Receive…

My goodness, it's terrible Super bad That’s right, it’s a disaster To be honest, the matter is much more serious than I thought A simple text symbol that crashed iMessage Just such a symbol makes iMessage completely unusable but I asked Will to look into it to see what the hell was going on It turns out that the actual situation is much more serious On his Macbook, this symbol crashed Havok directly The Note application on the notebook has crashed Just because there is a note in it that contains this symbol Just need a symbol That’s why I called Will over because he was studying this all morning Let’s test it in different ways to see how bad it is His Android machine is here, there is another one here, and then the iPhone X I will copy this symbol in the SMS chat and send it out, and send it to the Android device using the Android device, so that I can confirm that this is a problem only for iOS and OSX.

let's start My cell phone signal is a bit poor, so… Got it, look Nothing happens on the Android machine But what's going to happen next is a bit risky Just such a simple symbol may directly crash the messaging application on iPhone X Kind of crazy The ghost knows if we find this, will other apps have problems? Give it to Jack, show them Okay, that symbol is there, once the mouse touches that symbol Highlight it… collapsed! Show them what happens when you open the note app The note-taking app can’t even be opened IPhone X on the left, your phone on the right I put my phone card in, it might be a disaster I want to warn you, don't do this! I'm not kidding, it's really bad This symbol may crash your phone Yes, let them see what we are talking about Symbols are copied in The SIM card is read on the iPhone X send Will told me before that this is a foreign language Yes, I think it should be the Indian language Anyway, the language symbols of individual countries What if you are in this country? Do you have this symbol on your keyboard? Everyone is going to collapse The sending speed is a bit slow Why I feel that as long as I send a Test, he won’t crash It takes some time Did the iPhone receive it? Oh My God A little dangerous WOW! The phone restarted directly! If I open the text message, click on this text message Ready? But I don’t know why my iMessage app didn’t crash completely Because my next text message rejected the previous one, so it’s okay If someone is stupid and sends you this symbol, then he is willing to help you He can send you a rescue text message In this case, when you open the SMS, the phone does not need to display this symbol Before I send the rescue SMS, I first try to open the SMS app Now send a rescue text message, and then…

BOOM! I can enter the SMS application now If I take the initiative to open the chat window with Will SMS app will still crash collapsed! But if you copy this symbol in and post it, the iPhone will crash again. SMS arrived Open…crash It crashed immediately, and the text message was completely useless Completely collapsed The extent of this matter is more serious than I thought Apple, I hope you can find some engineers to see what's going on This is a big problem Remember, your Uncle Lewis told you not to do this They don’t realize how much we rely on technology now Just such a small bug immediately makes you panic It’s just a small symbol that makes so many things fall apart Willy Do, thank you for investigating this matter and sacrificing your own computer for presentation I'll go back and use my Pixel 2 XL hhhh, Android device Then I want to send this to Jack Do not! Don't do that! I was kidding, kidding
