ok the price retails I bought this for 60 pound so I don't know how much is going to be in the UK um it's worth every penny for 60 pound what I paid okay let me soak the box and tell you what's in it the phone obviously which is there tells you I put the cinnamon I'll show you in a minute okay head manual and headphones just the same nokia stuff okay one thing they didn't supply is the sync cable you know which gives me the USB to the phone so you can think transfer music and pictures and stuff etc from there to the USB they never supply that pisses me off about Nokia okay also a lot to forget the charger now this one's a European one so when they sent it would be it sent like that so for the UK I needed this adapter okay now gain to the phone it's honestly a great phone this is yellow was available black so I thought okay yellow for once I like the color anyway it's a lovely phone it's a really excellent phone um first of all when you touch it it doesn't leave fingerprints on it it's got a nice nice large screen really nice large screen it's not like the previous 220 or the 108 which I've reviewed it's actually wider as well which feels great in the hand it's light nice and light

not sure about this one yes let's just get out of this and go all day long just to piss around games exit ok that's games ok camera you know the camera is excellent it's a 2 megapixel camera but you know when you're taking it when you're like doing sort of shot something you hold it like this and you taking shots it's very good quite under quality are excellent you shot for two megapixel camera um there's a downside I wish they put 5 megapixels the whole phone would be excellent but it's the 2 megapixels I mean even on their on smartphone I think the newest one is the Nokia 360 I know 630 its Nakia Lumia I think that's the smartphone that's only got 5 megapixels so I don't think Nokia go that far to put a high megapixel camera but it this one is excellent you know when you're holding it this way it looks a nice big screen so when you're out door it takes really nice pictures so yeah ok we just go back to that for a minute that was the photos ok that was it for the cameras you've

stuff whatever files you want to make music files photo video whatever okay counters sin one choose sin whatever okay now this is what you covered when you want to change from the same one to the sim

step so you can use that number okee sim menu information pairs you a call orange that's about it man I'm tired completely alright overall it's an excellent phone um um what I normally do I buy phones and I'd use a review it and sell it after a few days once I've reviewed I'm not bothered but I think I'm going to keep this phone now I'm going to keep it for a couple of months at least it's an excellent phone I do exercise it's got a great countdown timer on it what I do it um it's for me it's excellent it's just got everything you want on the phone um it feels great one thing I love about the phone it doesn't leave fingerprints and stuff uh and it's nice big screen nice wide phone nice feel to it unit feels great nice and light buttons are great you've got a great yet just to lock again you press that like I said earlier and that's it or if you want to go out to blue – if you click press that you're going to bluetooth off the phone or turn or phone whatever anyway and then you got the volume there as well now just quickly let me go to the call quality of the phone the ring turns and everything are nice and loud is excellent let's talk about the call quality now normally on all Nokia phones except for the five one five which was very good this one is excellent I'm so happy they've updated it they're so stupid you know the last two friends I did their phone you know when you talking to people it's too low you can't hear on you it's clear but you can hear this one is excellent so I'll just put the loudspeaker on for you so you can hear it and then what I'll do I'm just going to bring the phone seeking here remaining credit is 5 pounds and 26 pounds by the way did you know you can now check your credit at any time and while you're on the phone you can do this up and down from the volume so that's excellent they can do that okay so that's the loud speaker um honestly the call quality is excellent on this phone I'm shocked that's the one best thing they've ever done you buy a phone which is over up to 60 pound even if it's over 30 pounds you want the you want a nice clear the call quality when you're speaking somebody nice and loud so you can hear they've sorted the problem out on this phone okay now let me just ring this phone up okay just look how nice and loud the output that's if it ever works at an order okay and it vibrates – it's awesome you can so nice little out you're not going to miss a call when you've got this phone so yeah I'm just going to that's everything up you tell you about the phone now um so everything overall it's a great looking phone feels great great screen you can see well great buttons great feel to it great everything nice call quality nice loud call quote which is excellent all music playing everything is X and radio is nice and clear you pick substations everything everything zexal on the phone so for the first time I'm going to give this phone a 10 out of 10 because for the price for 60 pound they've done it because normally up by Nokia phones they've got some issue with it either this that the backing is not that bad is well you don't you push this to open it up it's alright it's something about live with for the price that suppose for 60 pound but it's an excellent phone and I recommend to everyone I wish I had got the white one but it's not available why it looks nice and white they've sorted everything on this phone let me see if there's anything else I miss a call quality of Donna the last week I've done ring times of yesterday CS an excellent phone turtle is seeking yep check done everything on the phone so yeah um tena attend personally this is the best Nokia phone since the five one five and it's better than that in a way because cheaper Sony 60-pound so if you can get it from Europe get it's worth every penny up for sixty pound okay so 10 out of 10 great phone if you like my videos please subscribe and like the video please so I know I'll make more videos the problem is it comes out phones knock your friends are coming out in India before they even come out into the UK and it's bit unfair because I don't even know what the hell's going on so I have to are to keep tracking or see if there's any latest phones out so it's a bit difficult but the latest nokia phone this is the latest not given but the latest smart Nokia phone is the Nokia 630 or 360 106 30 I think so yeah so please like and subscribe the video and thank you for watching

hey guys it's Brandon minimun from pocketnow.com 2010 was the year of the Samsung Galaxy S we found it on every major carrier it was a hot device had great battery life great performance really thin form factors and in 2011 samsung is back with their new flagship the galaxy s2 this phone ups the ante in every respect it's faster it's thinner it has a bigger screen and in this video we're going to unbox the galaxy s2 let's get to it ok so here we go so a lot of improvements to talk about between the galaxy s and the galaxy s2 we've got the new Exynos processor I'm not sure if I'm saying that right the 1.2 gigahertz dual-core Samsung proprietary process that goes right up against the snapdragon 1.2 gigahertz processor coming out on the HTC Sensation I've got some extra packaging here and thanks to our friends at clove Co UK for sending us the unit 2 review right now this phone is 440 British pounds which is about seven hundred and twenty-two dollars yes it's very expensive but hey it'll actually work on the on us ATT frequencies so that's an added little bonus there and plus this is a device that just came out so you got to expect the press to be very high very likely that this phone will see release on all major US and international carriers so you can keep an eye out for lower subsidized prices so here it is small little box galaxy s2 1.2 gigahertz this is incredible the previous Galaxy S had a single core 1 gigahertz processor and now we're going to 1.2 gigahertz and having two cores this is going to be awesome let's take a look what we have on the back here dual core 8 megapixel camera this shoots 1080p video and it can also play it back in 1080p if you connect it to a television we've got DLNA support a huge 1650 milliamp hour battery and the interesting thing about that is that this device is the thinnest smartphone you can buy right now it's a little bit over 8 millimeters thick it's got the Super AMOLED plus screen you can tell the time excited about this Samsung had the super-mo LED debut in the galaxy s devices now they're going with the plus they also made the screen bigger this screen is going to be all inspiring we're thinking the only problem with it is that the screen is WVGA resolution it's not qHD like all the higher-end devices are coming with but maybe the the Super AMOLED plus will be so nice that we won't even care comes with 16 gigs of internal memory we've got Wi-Fi a B G and n Android 2.3 you get the point let's let's break the seal here there's no turning back now and open up this little tiny box Wow social hub premium GPS ok let's just see what comes in the box this thing is remarkably thin and I wish you can actually be here holding it I just have to stop and just comment on this I cannot believe how thin this phone is it's so powerful it's got such a big screen and yet it is thinner than any phone I've ever held Wow this is unbelievable it's pencil thin ok let's see what else is in the box before you know going crazy about the thickness of the phone we've got headphones which is nice kind of nice looking headphones with little chrome pieces there let's see we've got a micro USB charger which is nice of course the European plug but your standard plugs will work with that if you plan to use this in the US extra earbuds and here's the quite large sixteen hundred and fifty million power battery this function a pretty impressive battery life and what we're going to do is put the battery in I'm going to get an AT&T SIM card and plug it in immediately so we can do the first time boot up on the beautifully thin Samsung Galaxy S 2 and let's just take a look at the front we're getting a lot of reflection from here so off tak turn off some of the lights but what's interesting is that you can't see any buttons when the phone's off kind of like the Nexus S we've got the back button here we've got the home button without a home logo on it so kind of a very sleek looking design oh it looks too much like an iPhone Apple might get mad by that but maybe not and we've got the menu button here on the left front-facing camera let's get a SIM card in here let's get the battery in we'll be right back all right SIM cards in battery is in this thing is very very light even with the SIM card and usually the problem with light is it feels cheap this phone does not feel cheap okay so let's try to pop on the back battery cover by the way back here we've got this really interesting textured plastic maybe you can see it in the light it's got these raised little bumps that give it a good in hand feel we've got sort of a reverse chin here usually the chin occurs on the front speaker here doesn't look like it as dual speakers we've got a you know something to connect a lanyard loop to we've got a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack secondary mic for noise cancellation it is just amazing how thin this thing is power standby button on the left that's a little bit different than Samsung had been doing usually they put the button on the top so let's press and hold that and while that's booting up let's compare that to some other devices so here we've got the htc inspire 4G and it's got a little bit of fingerprints on here but it did in a second ago kind of weird so the inspire 4G was one of the thinnest phones to come out it's basically the Desire HD which was HTC's flagship of last year and let's see how they compare in terms of thickness there's no contest here the Desire HD is about 12 millimeters thick which is quite thin but again we're going at under 9 millimeters on the galaxy s 2 so it's just it's amazing how much thinner it is so here we have a network does it provide dayton time ok great it's kind of up there we go just turn to 3g so we're getting 3g network connectivity here on AT&T we'll zoom in a little bit a lot of options here automatic will go through this later there seems to be no confirm button so if I hit the back button and I'll do change language the United States it's really cool to see the Super AMOLED plus screen on such a large display all of the Galaxy S phones came with a 4-inch display so it's very interesting to see such incredible contrast over a large display let's see if we can kind of get out here guess we're gonna have to go through this okay we'll do all of this in a little bit and we'll show you what it's like again let's let's bring out some other devices to compare with before we actually do that turn that off over here is the iPhone 4 which is starting to look kind of small in comparison to these devices that have these big bright 4.3 inch displays so we've got the front facing camera al that looks a lot bigger here on the galaxy s 2 in terms of thickness the galaxy s 2 is thinner than the iPhone 4 which is a tremendous feat considering the iPhone 4 like the Desire HD is one of the thinnest devices out there also next to another device that has a 4.3 inch screen the Big Daddy the HTC Thunderbolt of course the galaxy s2 does not have 4G although it's very likely in 2011 and 2012 we're going to see versions of the galaxy s2 come out with LTE and HSPA+ and WiMAX and all of those good radio technologies all right so I put in the Google account information and what we have here is the new version of TouchWiz TouchWiz 4 which is Samsung's proprietary interface now a lot of people after they got the galaxy s devices put on a third-party launcher like launcher pro or ADW launcher because the galaxy s devices had this weird TouchWiz interface it wasn't that fast it wasn't that usable but it looks like Samsung has really gone above and beyond with their new interface the program tray looks about the same but they've got these new widgets that kind of stick together we're obviously gonna have to spend some time with this and we're gonna have a full video that talks all about what it's like to use TouchWiz 4 and here's something cool move device left or right while holding a selected icon to reposition to another page that is pretty cool so if we tap and hold and we tilt apparently if there's a feature that makes it a lot easier well that looks awesome there's a feature that makes it a lot easier to move widgets from homescreen to homescreen right now we're getting HSDPA on AT&T we should be getting faster data speeds than you can get onto the Atrix 4G and the inspire 4G because those devices don't seem to even advantage of HSDPA speeds so this might be a killer device to get on AT&T if you don't want to wait it will work on t-mobile but you won't get the 3G connectivity we've got a ton more coming up on the Samsung Galaxy S 2 it's really exciting for us to test one of the flagship devices of 2011 HTC's coming out of the gate with a sensation in the near future and Samsung is coming out of the gate with the Galle galaxy s 2 Super AMOLED plus screen 1.2 gigahertz dual-core processor it's pretty awesome if you liked this video please give us a thumbs up and if you think I was too enthusiastic about this phone please give us a thumbs up and thanks for watching we'll be back soon with more that's it for now

– Hey, guys, this is Austin. Between the ROG Phone
and the Razer Phone 2, 2018 is shaping up to be an awesome year for gaming smartphones. So with both of them on
the desk at the same time, why, I think a good old-fashioned
comparison is in order. First up we have the Razer Phone 2. Now, a couple weeks ago, we were able to get our hands on this, but it was a very brief hands-on, whereas this, this is going to be a little bit more of an in-depth feature comparison
review gaming benchmark. Are there other words
I can put in the title? Do you see how shiny this glass is? It'll never be this shiny again the second I put my
dirty fingerprints on it. Not only do we have a fast
charger included in the box, something that a certain
fruit-themed company might want to take note on, but we also have a series
of cables and dongles. But what's actually kind of interesting about the Razer Phone is that we have a USB-C headphone adapter. Now this might not sound impressive. In fact, it's included on most phones that don't have a headphone jack, which is basically
everything at this point.
But this actually does
support full hi-fi audio and supposedly has a
pretty good DAC inside. Next up we have the ROG Phone, and I actually don't
know to open this box. (Velcro crackling) Oh, wow, okay, that's,
all right, that's a box. All right. (chuckling) First up, we have the phone itself. So the ROG Phone's kind of unique in that not only does it have a USB-C and a headphone jack on the bottom, but it has two more USB-Cs on the side which are meant for accessories. So the last time I tried the ROG Phone, it was still a fairly early prototype, and I've gotta say, immediately,
this feels really nice.
We do have that, actually, is that aluminum? That's gotta be aluminum. It's incredibly heavy, though, wow. It really feels nice, and it's got such a heft in the hand, and unlike the Razer Phone, which is basically a
giant squared-off brick, this is much more rounded and a little bit more of
a hand-friendly shape. Something unique about the ROG Phone is that unlike basically every
other gaming phone out there, there's a wide range of accessories that are either included in
the box such as this fan, or other things that'll
be available for purchase.
You know what I feel like right now? I feel like ROG is trying to make the ultimate ROG Phone, right? Like, when we do Building the Ultimate, we try to find the ridiculous
and crazy accessories, but they're just selling
all of the accessories. You could literally
get everything you need to build the ultimate ROG
Phone straight from the store. Not only does it have the RGB, but it also has a fan,
USB-C, headphone jack, all that stuff, which is
rearranged to the bottom. This is cool. I really appreciate that
they put this in the box. I don't want to get too
into the dock right now, but the idea is that when
you're using the phone in landscape mode, your hand
is naturally covering up not only the headphone
jack but also the USB-C, so in addition to be able to
get a little bit of cooling, you also have those ports
on the bottom of the phone so you can easily plug it
in, plug your headphones in, and you won't get in
the way of your hands. (box thumping) Wait, what'd you, what are you doing? A Black Shark? Wait, are you trying to add another phone to the comparison in
the middle of the video? "You're Gamer, Let's Shark!" Oh boy, this looks exciting.
What's the deal with this? Oh. Oh, this is not the
original Black Shark at all. Okay, this is an unprecedented move in that there's a brand-new
unreleased smartphone on my desk and I literally
don't know anything about it, except that it looks kind of cool! That's something to know about it, right? So it's got a kind of combination
of aluminum on the sides but it still does have
that glass back panel, and I'm assuming that looks
kind of like an RGB logo? Oh, wow, that's quite the gamer skin, and, oh yeah, we do have
a RGB logo on the back. I like how we have this great comparison: look, it's the ROG Phone
versus the Razer Phone. It all makes sense. And now, I'm like, wait a minute, there's this totally new phone
that I have no idea about. I have to figure it out on the fly.
This is cool, though. I guess they've definitely
upped the RGB game. I mean, that's a look right there. So it looks like you
can individually change not only the logo color, but also the little Shark
Mode thing on the side. "By pressing the Shark button, "your phone will become a game console." What, a game console? In a smartphone? That's crazy! So after spending some
time with the Black Shark, a few things come to mind. First of all and probably the
most important for the video is that this is not a final phone and it's certainly not final software. There's definitely some tweaks that are going to need to go
on before this is released. And also, a lot of the
benchmarks and stuff don't even work yet, so
we're gonna take some of this with a grain of salt. There's also the controller, which actually doesn't
attach to the phone.
It attaches to the case
that comes with the phone, so it's maybe not the most
elegant way of doing it, but it's sort of like you
would expect with a Joy-Con. The only problem is that the controller only works wirelessly, so even though you can slide
it on, something like this, it actually doesn't attach with any kind of wires or whatever, so you still need to separately charge not only the controller
but the phone itself. The big problem is that this
is a Chinese market phone, which means that here
in the United States, well, it doesn't have
the Google Play store, or any kind of Google apps at all. Now there will be a global
version of this phone, and hopefully that will include, you know, the fundamental apps that you
would expect like YouTube, but for now, it's kind of
hard to get apps on this, unless of course you wanna play a little bit of Fortnite by chance.
All three phones have the very familiar Snapdragon 845 inside. So the ROG is slightly clocked higher, but the main difference between the three is that the Black Shark has an optional 10 gigabyte of RAM option, whereas the others only top out at a measly eight gigs of memory. Coincidentally, they all
have the exact same size 4,000-milliamp hour battery, which is a good thing for gaming, but from here, the
differences start to stand out just a little bit more. The first big difference is with displays. The Black Shark has a
perfectly respectable six-inch 2160x1080p panel. It's good but nothing spectacular, especially when you compare it to both the ROG Phone as
well as the Razer Phone. Move over to the ROG Phone, and while it does have that same size as well as resolution of the Black Shark, it is an OLED panel
running at a full 90 Hertz.
Now as far as I know,
this is the first time that any phone has hit 90
Hertz with an OLED panel. The Razer Phone has a slightly
smaller 5.7-inch display, but it is a much higher
resolution at 2560×1440, and importantly, it runs at a whopping 120 hurt refresh rate. Hertz, not hurt. It doesn't hurt to refresh,
it Hertz to refresh.
The only real downside is that
this is a very wide phone, specifically when you put it side by side with the Black Shark and the ROG. It's just not quite as
comfortable to hold, but that screen is really
well-optimized for video. Let's talk about these
screens for a second. The ROG Phone has a very
accurate OLED panel, and even though it's not the most well-calibrated thing in the world, it looks nice to the eye. The Razer Phone thankfully
is much, much brighter than the original version
of the Razer Phone. Again, it's not quite 100% there, but it is a lot better than
the previous generation.
And the Black Shark looks nice, but again, it's not quite final, so it's hard to run
any kind of real tests. It looks goods, but I really
feel like the winner here is the ROG just purely based on the looks. Where these phones really shine is with the higher refresh rate, so it's really hard to show on video, but even the 90 Hertz of the ROG Phone really does make a big
difference in small things like scrolling through a
webpage or moving between menus.
It really does seem a lot more fluid, and that definitely does
apply to the Razer Phone. Now, to my eye, I
actually can't really see a major difference between
90 Hertz and 120 Hertz. Theoretically, this is
a little bit smoother, and I will say it looks
maybe a little bit sharper when you're moving between things, but realistically, both these phones are a big step up over the Black Shark, or, well, every other 60
Hertz phone out there, which is basically all of them.
All three have dual front-firing speakers, but there's a clear winner as
far as which one sounds best. – 780-998-9551 Hey, guys, this is Austin. The Microsoft Surface line
has been growing a lot lately, with everything from a desktop all-in-one with the Surface Studio all the way down to the
cheap and tiny Surface Go, there's a lot to like. – I guess the ROG Phone
wins by default here. That's not what I was expecting. So the problem with the Razer Phone is at least with my specific unit, even though it is very
loud and very clear, there's definitely a
little bit of distortion on the very high volume. Something the ROG Phone
definitely does right are the extra features and accessories that come along with it. One of the main ones
is the squeeze feature. This is somewhat to what
you'll find on the Pixel where if I squeeze it, what
happens is it turns into ROG Gaming X Mode. The thing with X Mode is you
actually can customize it to do whatever you want, but I just like going X Mode, not X Mode.
X Mode! It's just kind of fun to do. But it's not only just for show, so if you flip the ROG Phone over, on the top are the AirTriggers. This essentially adds physical controls to the top of the phone, giving it a little bit more
of a controller kind of feel. The way it works is that each of them can be mapped to a specific
button on the screen. The way it works is that
inside the X Mode software, you can adjust the actual
touchpoint of where you want it, so for example, my right trigger is the actual trigger in the game, and my left is to go on to the sights.
You can do it however you
want, but the thing is, this is a really, really nice addition to give you a little bit
more of a physical control on a phone without having to carry around, like, you know, a
controller, or accessories. One downside to the ROG Phone is that this is one of the hottest devices that I've ever tested. Now it doesn't get uncomfortably warm, but after a few minutes of gaming, it does get a little bit toasty, which is where the included fan comes in. So what you do is snap
this on to the USB-C ports on the bottom of the phone. As soon as you clamp it on, not only will the RGB logo light up, but it will start a pretty easy little fan which will cool the back of the phone. Now in testing this doesn't make a massive difference to performance. What it does do is cool
off the back of the phone to make it a lot nicer
for when you're, you know, doing extended Fortnite gaming sessions and not sweating your fingers up.
Can you sweat your fingers up? Is that, I can't say
that, can I, that's weird. So what's the best gaming phone of 2018? Well, I really like a lot
of what Razer has done with the Razer Phone 2. I gotta give it to the ROG Phone. Not only does it have great
performance, it looks nice. It's got a lot of really cool features, but really, what kind of sells this to me over everything else is this
is the first gaming phone that's not only good at gaming, but it's also good at being a phone, and that, that kind of means a lot.

The Razer Phone has survived my durability
test and now it's time for the teardown and review from the inside. We had a vote over on my Twitter yesterday
to name our new little mouse friend, and out of the suggestions in my last video came Mousey
McMouse Face, Mr. “Moh'se”, and Jerry (from Tom & Jerry) ended up winning though. Good choice. I like that name. Let's call him Mr. Jerry Moh'se, and I just
hope he survives the teardown. Let's get started. [Intro] Since there are no visible external screws
on the Razer Phone, the only logical explanation is that they are hidden under the plastic
speaker grills. And as with most adhesive, this stuff gets
softer as you heat it up. I'll take a thin pry tool, or in this case,
a razor blade, and pry up that bottom plastic grill exposing a few screws. I'll repeat the process with the top grill
by warming it up and putting my razor into the Razer and razoring it around a little
The camera lenses come off with that top plastic. I'll try to find replacements for these and
link them in the description. But since this isn't a super mainstream phone,
it might be difficult. I'll pull the SIM card tray out just in case
that's important. And then there are 6 screws at the bottom,
a combination of Phillips and T5 screws. There are another 4 screws up at the top;
one T5 and the rest are Phillips head. Getting the screen out of the frame was a
little bit easier than I anticipated.
It's held in place with friction and a few
small clasps. So with a little leverage at the bottom of
the screen and some gentle persuasion, the whole thing can pop up and out of the phone
body…way easier than the OnePlus 5T. Already we can see some pretty interesting
things inside this Razer Phone, but we need easier access to get a better look. There are a billion different sized screws
in here, so I am going to keep things organized. I'll detach the screen ribbon cable first
by unscrewing the metal bracket connector – it's a Phillips head. And I'll peel back some of the metallic shielding
over those connectors. First thing to unplug is the massive battery,
and then the screen ribbon. And now that the screen's free, let's look
at this massive heat pipe. This might be the biggest heat pipe I've ever
seen in a cellphone. It's also got the thermal paste right over
the top of the copper so the heat dissipation will be more efficient between the copper
and the processor. Under the black tape there's another sheet
of copper thermally adhered to the copper below it.
More copper is always a good thing. The adhesive only sticks one time though,
so I'll just, um, put that off to the side and it's good as new. This is the screen component, the 120 Hertz
IPS beast of a display this phone is known for. If you manage to break yours unfortunately,
I'll try to have some replacements linked in the video description for you. So far it's been a pretty straightforward
replacement. Now let's get that gigantic battery out. I'll unclip the fingerprint scanner cable
from the motherboard. And then on the other side of the phone I'll
remove the two screws holding down the volume ribbon bracket. I'll set that off to the side and then unclip
the volume button connector just like a little Lego. This battery does have the magical pull tabs
thankfully. And Razer was nice enough to give us a big
enough tab to actually grab and pull on. [Stretching rubber sounds] But wait, there's more. [Stretching rubber sounds] Unfortunately there was some premature decapitation,
and now I have to commence the Pry of Shame.
But still, pretty simple to replace the battery
in this thing. A 4000 milliamp hour Razer branded powerhouse
which is over twice the capacity of the iPhone 8. Pretty impressive. Now for the charging port and vibration motor. This is where things get a little more complicated. There are a total of 7 screws holding this
thing down, with a few golden frame attachments to that plastic antenna line. I'll disconnect and peel back that charging
port ribbon from the motherboard and remove the signal wires, and then the whole thing
can come free. The USB-C charging port has a little bit of
rubber around the tip, but remember that this phone has no water resistance, so be careful. Now for that vibration motor. In most smart phones we find an eccentric
rotating mass motor, or circular coin vibrators, but Razer has stuck in a taptic vibrator,
similar to what we've seen on the iPhones, but a fraction of the size.
It's incredibly small. Marquez was complaining about his vibrator
being trash. [Marquez] Sounds broken. But it sounded that way out of the box since
day one. And now we can see why. It's barely even there. I assume Razer is making up for it's small
size by overpowering the itty-bitty guy and getting that blown out rattling sound like
you would with a speaker. Apparently size matters when it comes to vibrators. The bottom loudspeaker is on the other side
of the phone and it's pretty interesting. Once again, no waterproofing, but the speaker
cone is made from rubber, kind of like what we saw in the Apple Airpods. So even if moisture does get into the speaker,
it won't distort or blow easily, and will wear out less with time. It's nice of Razer to put quality speakers
inside of their phone. I'll toss the loudspeaker with it's golden
contact pads back into the frame and make my way up to the top of the motherboard. The dual camera system is hidden under that
I'll peel that up and unscrew the one screw
holding down the metal bracket over the connectors. It's a weird bracket with a little rubber
doohickey keeping it from popping out on one side. The cameras themselves can unplug like little
Legos, and there are 2 screws holding the whole thing down. One screw is tucked up underneath the camera
connector. This is not the most organized phone I've
ever been inside, but it's still not as bad as the old HTC's. Neither the regular camera lens nor the telephoto
camera have OIS, which is unfortunate.
Optical image stabilization is pretty important
when it comes to cameras and taking video. There is no side-to-side hardware stabilizing
that we've seen on other major high-end flagships. There are 5 more screws holding down the gold
antenna line brackets to the motherboard, and then one more screw hidden next to the
front-facing camera. The whole motherboard can lift up and away
from the phone body after that. The 8 megapixel front facing camera is removable
if you're into that kind of thing. Also, one more cool thing is that the front
earpiece looks like it's the same size as the bottom speaker, so there will be equal
sounds coming from both ends of the phone. It's just oriented in a different direction. The top speaker also has that same durable
long lasting rubber cone that we talked about earlier. And now it's time to see if our little mouse
buddy is still alive. I'll get all those golden antenna line brackets
back into place with those 6 motherboard screws. There's another 2 screws specifically to hold
down the rear cameras. I'll get that silver bracket situated with
it's one screw and funky white little rubber pad thing, and make my way down to the bottom
of the phone.
The charging port goes in with it's gold antenna
line brackets and 6 screws. And the long extension cable can run up along
the frame to the top and plug into the motherboard. I'll tuck that massive battery back into place,
and get this silver bracket with it's two screws back over the volume button ribbon. The fingerprint scanner Lego-like connection
is next, and then I'll toss that metallic tape back on over the cameras and SD card
slot. I do like saving the battery connector for
last to be safe. So we'll get the screen lined up and plugged
in, and then the battery. The metal bracket goes over the top of all
those connectors with it's one screw to hold it down tight. Getting the screen lined up and pressed down
was easy enough. The kink near the power button from my bend
test didn't mess me up too much.
Since I am working with glass though, I was
pretty gentle and careful getting it back into place. Cracking the screen at this point would be
incredibly unfortunate. And it looks like everything still works. This phone is currently available on Amazon
right now, so I'll leave a link for that in the description along with all the parts and
tools I used during this video. Hopefully you never break yours, but accidents
happen. I'll get all the screws back into the frame
and unfortunately, the speaker grills are not going to go back into place nicely.
Once they've been peeled off, the adhesive
is not reusable. I'll probably try some double sided tape at
some point, or just wait till I can find some replacements. Jerry Mouse is glad he survived the teardown
and thanks you all for his new name. Come hang out with us on Twitter. Jerry and I thank you a ton for watching and
we'll see you around..
– [Eric] Do you think you have a social media phone problem? – For sure! For sure I am addicted in some
way or another to my phone. (ethereal music) – [Eric] I'm Eric Limer, Tech Editor at Gear Patrol, and I tested the Light Phone 2. It's a tiny little E-ink smartphone that's designed to try to help you break your worst social media habits by literally not supporting
social media at all, ever. And we took it around to
some folks in the office to get their knee jerk first impressions.
I talked to Gear Patrol
co-founder and fellow geek, Ben Bowers, for his thoughts about it, and then I'll let you
know the kind of deep, dark, existential questions, that using a phone like this makes you stare into the
mirror and ask yourself. (ethereal music) – Okay, very devicey. – It's cool. It's kinda cute. – It says, Go Light. – All right, correct me
if I go off track here. It is a phone for people who
don't wanna use their phone, but do wanna use their phone
enough to get a separate phone that does nearly all of
what their phone does, except for one or two
very specific things? – Stripped down, old school, but new school at the same time. Kinda like it! I'm gonna hit the little button here and I've got phone numbers! – No social, no camera, no anything. Can I send text messages with it? – [Eric] Yes it has texts, calls, maps.
– Okay, that's kinda cool. I remember when the original came out, it was so limited that it was– – [Eric] Just phone. – Yeah, it was so pure that it made so little sense
in terms of actual use. I think they're going
in the right direction. – Nice little qwerty keyboard I could probably pen
something out this way. Quick touch, little feedback. Buzzing which is cool and all right, so I'm lookin' at just phone, texts, right? No camera, no social. – I mean they're going in the direction of becoming an actual phone, like smartphone, iPhone. But it's cool. I can't bash the concept that hard. – It's probably a nice way to unplug, but stay plugged. – In initially trying to use it, I'm going to go ahead and say that I do not understand how to use it. – I would be into something like this. I could, as much as I
love checkin' the socials, and postin' stuff, I could be into this maybe
as a part-time phone.
Maybe it's a weekend device. – I'm gonna guess it
costs somewhere about, (buzzes) let's call it $200.00 bucks? – [Eric] It's $349.00. – $349.00. The price of a fairly recent used iPhone. Maybe it's a good stop-gap thing. Maybe it'll be a fun dry
January-type of phone. But if you stick with this for too long, you are going to be left behind. – Okay, so $349.00 for this guy! Yeah, that's a tough sell unfortunately. As much as I think this is cool, I feel like it would need to be a lot more bulletproof feeling. It's a little plasticky for that amount. But I still think the concept
is cool and very valid. I would just hope that
it could be something… You know I have kids, too. I think this could be an awesome device for a young middle-schooler. But I don't know if $340.00's gonna work when I can get something
basically of full-fledged (chuckles) device for man, $60.00 bucks with a plan.
Tough sell on the price, awesome concept. – Ultimately it's cool. I wish that it made
sense for me to use it. It definitely seems
better than the first one, but instead of buying a separate phone you could just delete some apps. – [Ben] My first gut
is that it feels a lot like the old Nexus 5
with this matte plastic, but I don't know why it
needs to be so tiny! (laughs) – Yeah I know, it is so– – It's a little hard to grip. – It is so ridiculously small. – I actually, I mean I assume the battery
life is pretty good. I don't mind the E-ink at all. I mean overall the matteness
of it is kinda nice in an age where you get the smear-heavy fingerprint stuff.
What can this do besides call and text? – It's got alarms right now. (chuckles) There is (chuckles) ride share and maps are coming in the future, along with some basic music stuff. So rudimentary features rolling out– – It's got a headphone jack. Too bad no one has headphones anymore with a headphone jack. (laughing) That's a loss. So is this still a version
where it has to require another cell phone to get internet, to get cellular service? – [Nick] No.
– [Ben] Or is it still encapsulated? – [Nick] No, it is, so yeah, so the Light Phone 1 was designed to be a second
phone and tether off yours, but this one has a SIM card in it, can text, and call directly, so it's a fully-featured phone. – So essentially the point of this device is to be something where if
you feel like you're addicted to your typical cell phone, you can't stop browsing
Instagram, whatever, you can use this as a
communication device? – Right.
– I think there's some
appeal to that today. I mean Apple, Android, they've both rolled out a
bunch of software updates to show you how you're using your phone. You can even put limits
on how much time you use. I guess if you really lack self-control, you just physically remove
yourself from the phone. I really like the plastic, I just don't– – Yeah, that's a really nice throwback. I don't know why…
I mean I guess just, I don't know why (chuckles) they stopped making Soft
Touch plastic phones. – How does the screen look outdoors? Because that's one
issue with E-ink, right, is can you get enough contrast ratio. – [Nick] Yeah, I mean it's
looked great outdoors to me. I mean it's arguably better than the… My smartphone has a glare on it, but with the matte screen
it looks pretty good. – [Ben] I think the idea of this phone is really interesting because
we love these things so much and now everyone pretty much agrees that we love 'em a little too much. But personally, I don't know
if I could live with this. But I do think we're
seeing a social movement, I mean Apple has admitted it, Google has admitted it with
these screen time apps, that think society is
waking up to the fact that we're getting more
addicted to these devices and so there is a
movement to try to retain what got us hooked on these
things in the first place, which was communication at all times without all of the junk.
I just don't know if that
movement is too early for something like this to succeed. (ethereal music) – [Nick] One of the most
immediately striking things about the Light Phone 2
is obviously the design. It's really nice and
minimalist and cohesive. The black and white of the E-ink really meshes nice with
this whole grey look. It's got this great Soft
Touch plastic on the back which is something that you don't find in a lot of phones anymore. The weight and heft of it is really nice; it feels like a device that
was really well considered. And it works, which is always good in a phone. You can use it to send
messages and make phone calls. The texts go through, the call quality is pretty good and it works on the major carriers. While the Light Phone 2 is
definitely super appealing both in an abstract sense and when you have it in your hands, there are a lot of gripes
I have about using it which is a weird thing to get into because those are also
sort of the point, right.
For instance, the user interface is… The Light Phone doesn't do a lot, so it's user interface
can be pretty simple, but it's also pretty abstract
to find your way around. When you actually go to type
text messages for example, the keyboard, which
always comes up landscape, so you have to twist
the phone to the side, is extremely small, (chuckles) it's a small phone, which makes typing on it difficult, which is then again compounded by the fact that since it's an E-ink screen when you make typos, and you will, and then you erase them, there's some strange artifacting. It's not as seamless as when you're typing on any smartphone from
the past five years. But you can't quite hold that against it, because that's also the point. There's this little bit
of a weird situation here where every time that I want to knock the Light Phone 2 for introducing more friction
to the use experience, it's like that's also the point, so it's a little bit weird to engage with.
The other main thing we have to talk about when we talk about the Light Phone 2 is what it doesn't do. Not what it doesn't do on purpose, but what it is suppose
to do but doesn't do yet. While for now the Light Phone 2 only supports calling and text messaging as its means of communication, there's a lot of stuff
built in here for more: You'll notice the Light
Phone 2 has a headphone jack. Eventually there's supposed
to be music playback features with a interesting little
bit of a dividing line of, it will allow you to play
music that you already have, but the creators have said they're not gonna include
music discovering stuff. The Light Phone 2 also has
Bluetooth and WiFi built-in, which again it doesn't really use for any of its current slate of features, but that lays the groundwork
for a future feature where this phone could act
as a WiFi hotspot, right.
So instead of trying to
do things directly on it, you could use it to connect
another device to the internet. I think it says a lot
about the state of phones, the state of technology, the state of internet in
general that this exists, and it's a good thing! There's nothing I would like more then to have devices that
have a built-in interest in keeping me from using
them literally all the time. But when we're looking at this, the Light Phone 2, as it exists right now, you do have to ask yourself, could I use it for me? No. And I hope that some point in the future there will be a device like this, but Light Phone something else, that either shares the
same priorities that I do, or has enough options for personalization that I think I can.
I do think that the Light
Phone could be a good fit for a lot of people, but those people are going to have to be an extremely good fit for the Light Phone. This is a device that is
appealing to a very big need, but it is serving a very
small target market right now. And if you're in that, that's terrific, if you're not, I would caution you against trying to squeeze
yourself into it too hard because you might regret it..
