RED Hydrogen One review: a $1,300 mess of a phone

(techno music) – Here it is. RED has spent the last year hyping this. The HYDROGEN One smart phone
with the holographic display. It looks like no other
phone on the market. Comes from one of the most esteemed names in digital cameras. And has a screen unlike any
other phone selling today. It it unique, it is expensive. And it is a complete mess. So I've been pretty
excited for this phone.

RED announced it more than a year ago and it's been talking about this holographic display since then. But the phone kept getting
delayed and pushed back and pretty much no one's
been able to see it. They've shown it to a handful of people. But no one's been able to film the screen and so we've kinda just had to work off of what people were describing it as. And so, I've been here imagining
that a holographic screen is kinda gonna float above the display and have this very cool,
you know, hologram. But, that's not what this is at all. – Oh my God. (laughing) – What? – This is very nauseating. – My question is why? – Maybe the further you hold it, uhhhhh. – Ahhh. – This is kind of hurting my eyes.

I can't imagine using this every day. – My eye are tearing watching this. – There's really no
elegant way to say this. The screen is just bad. Like really bad. But unfortunately it doesn't
show up on video very well. So I'm gonna do my best
to describe it to you. We also made this graphic to try and help. You know those lunch boxes or post cards with a lenticular screen that kinda changes as you rotate it side to side? That's basically what this is. If you've ever seen a Nintendo 3DS, it's pretty much the same thing. I actually think the
3DS is better than this. Most of the time you're using the phone nothing is quote unquote holographic. Everything is flat, 2D, just normal when you're on the main interface, browsing the web, using your
regular apps or whatever. RED has a separate app store that includes a very small number of game and movies that work in this holographic format.

For whatever reason, RED calls it 4V or 4-View, instead of 3D. Nothing ever pops out at you when you're seeing a 4-View image or game. But when you're in those apps you can see a little bit
of depth into the screen. But the depth you see
isn't that convincing. I wasn't even sure I was
seeing it half the time.

And it works really unevenly. Most things are really bad and look kinda like
flat, gimmicky cutouts. Others, especially video where the depth is much more natural, actually have some potential. But the key thing to know
is that it just looks bad when the holographic mode comes on. The screen looks really blurry, like the whole thing is smudged up and nothing is sharp and clear. I think that's because there's
an actual hardware layer in here that's changing how
many of the pixels you can see. I played a few games this way and I didn't feel like it
added much to the experience. I think the 4V made the games worse too. Just look at how poorly
the Subway Surfers ripoff staring Paddington works. It gets choppy all the time. The other big deal here is the cameras.

There are dual 12 megapixel
sensors on the back and dual 8 megapixel sensors on the front. And both sides can be used for capturing 4V photos and videos. Before I get into that I want to say that as regular 2D cameras they're actually pretty
good in a lot of cases. Now you're not exactly getting
RED color science here. RED says there's just not the horsepower. And you're not using a RED sensor either. I think it's probably the same Samsung or Sony stuff that everyone else is using. The colors look rich and natural, though. There's style without them being stylized. But it can't match the Pixel
when it comes to dynamic range. I often found that the HYDROGEN One would blow out highlights that the Pixel could clearly capture. It also struggles in low light and the photos often
weren't very sharp either.

The real highlight here
is supposed to be 4V mode where you can capture
3D photos and videos. The photos are pretty skippable. They don't capture a lot of depth. And eventually I started
making everyone pose in these cheesy ways once I realized that made it look the best. I was surprised, though, the video is, there's something to it. I can actually see the depth a bit.

It a much subtler effect
and it's kind of cool. It's still a pain to watch. It's smudgy and the effect tends to flicker in and out
with a lot of artifacts. Some people said it made them dizzy. But when it works, you
can kind of understand what RED was thinking. Unfortunately you can't
really share it with anybody. Even if you do get
really into shooting 4V, they won't be able to see it unless they have another RED phone.

It just looks like 2D to
the rest of the world. RED does include an app called Holopix which is sort of their own social network. It's supposed to be like Instagram for RED phone owners who shoot 4V. But I haven't actually
been able to test it. Every time I try to log into the app it just crashes when I
press the sign in button. The funny thing is, RED isn't even the first
company to try this. If you remember back in 2011, HTC actually did this with the EVO 3D. It did the same thing. There was a dual camera on the
back for capturing 3D photos and it had the same kinda screen, where you could tilt it and view it in 3D. Now in fairness to RED it does look better on the HYDROGEN One. It's a little bit clearer and the photos and videos
do turn out better. But the tech clearly
has not developed a lot in the time since and it kinda says a lot that RED hasn't meaningfully improved the experience since 2011.

So now I want to talk about
the rest of the phone. 'Cause there is a lot of phone here. I actually dropped it and
injured somebody with it. But props to it for at least trying something different here. I don't really like the design, but there's a lot going on and it looks unlike anything else. There are a bunch of textures on the back. There are the grips for
your fingers on the side that don't strictly make it easier to hold but are interesting. I also like that there's a
shutter button on the top. Unfortunately its less
interesting on the inside. That's because it was
supposed to come out last year so it's running on a Snapdragon 835 whereas the rest of this
years flagship phones all have the Snapdragon 845.

There's one other big
feature on this phone that's supposed to make it unique. And that's these accessory
pins on the back. They're supposed to let you connect all kinds of interesting things. The biggest being a full
on RED camera sensor which you'll be able to
attach real lenses to. But, that doesn't exist yet. There's nothing you can
add onto the phone today. And given that the phone
was already a year delayed, who knows when these
accessories will actually ship. RED hasn't even offered any details on the sensor's capabilities
let alone its price. And so ultimately all the big things that RED set out to do here, all the ways it wanted to stand out, they just don't hold up.

And since it's not particularly
great at the basics, and costs an incredible $1300, it's just impossible to recommend. I really wish it didn't go this way. I think it great that someone
is trying something different when it comes to mobile phones. And the concept of a RED
camera in your pocket? That's really exciting. But it's not what we got. Right now this tech just isn't ready and you probably should
pay $1300 to beta test it. (electronic swooshing) Hey, what's up, we're filming
on an EVO 3D right now because we can't actually
export 3D from the RED phone. If you like this video, be

Please let me know in the comments what you actually wanted
to see from this phone..

An ICE COLD Gaming Phone? – Durability Test!

So it's been a pretty rough year for gaming
phones, with both the ROG Phone 5 and the Legion Phone 2 getting a game over in their
first durability test. It's time to see if this Black Shark 4 can
hold up any better. Today's video is sponsored by Omaze who I
partnered up with to give away a brand new, custom Tesla Model S and $20,000 in cash that
you can keep for yourself or pay it forward. Omaze does these massive giveaways while supporting
nonprofits. And in this particular case we're supporting
a nonprofit called Give Power, which helps get energy and clean water to regions around
the globe that need it.

I'll explain more at the end of the video,
but you can always go to omaze.com/jerry to get entered for your chance to win. And of course I'll put a link in the description. I think it's time we see how durable this
Black Shark 4 really is. Let's get started. [Intro] The Black Shark 4 is intriguing for multiple
reasons, one is it's $500 price point, and the other is this active refrigerating coolant
we'll get to in a second. Inside the box we get a free hard plastic
case…kind of nice. Free protection is a good thing. And then we have the phone itself. It's quite a bit different than last year's
design. Still incredibly flashy like a gaming phone
usually is. But we are missing the metal X framed across
the back panel which means that this bend test could be rather interesting.

It's also got a 1020 watt fast charger in
the box. Black Shark was one of the first devices to
every implement that dual battery charging, so I assume that's what's going on again this
year. 120 watts is an impressive amount of power
and should get from 0-100% charged in just about 17 minutes. We'll try out the case just for kicks and
giggles. I always have a case on my own phone. It looks like the case won't be compatible
with that refrigerated cooler though so we can just take it off for now. The other interesting component on this new
Black Shark phone is the physical motorized popup trigger buttons on the corners. Most gaming phones have some kind of capacitive
or ultrasonic trigger buttons on the frame, but there's something to be said for an actual
tactile button. These buttons can be mapped to all kinds of
different tasks when not in gaming mode. And this year instead of motorizing these
buttons, this rising action is done with magnets.

I'm not totally sure how, but I'm sure we'll
figure it out from the inside during the teardown, you know, if it survives that long. Let's talk about the refrigerating cooler
for a second. Getting rid of the excess heat is a task that
every piece of electronics has to deal with. Most smartphones have a passive method of
cooling with heatpipes and vapor chambers. And some have a more active solution like
the dual fans inside of the Legion 2…may he rest in peace. Out of the box, this fun Cooler 2 Pro has
a starting temperature of 73 degrees fahrenheit, and once I get it plugged into an external
power source we instantly get fan movement as well as a digital readout of the cooler's
temperature. And within seconds we've already dropped 20
degrees down to 56 degrees fahrenheit. This is an active cooler on steroids and it's
surprisingly inexpensive. Last year's version only cost like 40 dollars
right now.

We'll leave this over here on the side to
see how cold it can really get while we start testing this Black Shark 4, starting with
the scratch test. Xiaomi is nice enough to include a built in
screen protector on the Black Shark 4. We'll rip that off and test the surface underneath. As we know, plastic screens will start scratching
a level 2 or 3. Glass will start scratching at 5 or 6. And sapphire screens will start scratching
at level 8 or 9. And as we can see from the Black Shark 4,
it's made with tempered glass since we get scratches starting at level 6, with deeper
grooves starting at level 7.

We haven't run across a plastic screen in
a while. Our refrigerated cooler is still over there
just chilling, now down to 0 degrees celsius. My laser temperature thermometer is showing
about 38 Fahrenheit which is about 3 degrees celsius. So it looks like there is a few degrees of
discrepancy, but it could also just be that the internal thermas location is closer to
the cooler than my laser is. Either way, it's still pretty impressive. Let's keep going. The Black Shark 4 does have a tiny hole punch
cut out in the screen for that 20 pixel selfie camera, and dual stereo speakers. The earpiece is covered with a plastic grill
that won't be coming off on it's own. The side magnetic popup buttons are also made
from metal, along with the textured switch that activates the rising. The buttons seem solid and can't be pried
out, or damaged with hammering, which is good news.

The rest of the frame is also metal. The side mounted fingerprint reading power
button is scratchable, but we'll get to that more in a second. The top of the phone is pretty empty. Then we have the dual SIM card tray and volume
rocker on the left side, both of which are made from metal. The SIM card tray does not include any expandable
memory. However, the bottom of the phone does have
a USB-C and a little friend, the headphone jack. Another example of an inexpensive phone to
rival with more features than the expensive ones. When I first pulled the Black Shark 4 out
of the box, I just assumed the black panel was glass. Turns out though, it's not. It's fine with me though. Art Class with Jerry is back in session. the fun cooler is now in the negative digits
– just below freezing. And here on the back of the Black Shark 4
we now have a tooth.

Pretty accurately sized for a Great White
Shark, you know, the massive sharks currently swimming around in the ocean today. I drew a Great White tooth because if I were
to draw an extinct Megalodon tooth it wouldn't fit since the largest Megladon tooth ever
found is about 7 inches long, and would disappear off the top and bottom of the plastic panel. How's that for freaky. The Black Shark 4 has 3 rear cameras: the
main 48 megapixel sensor, then we have an 8 megapixel wide angle in the middle, followed
by a 5 megapixel depth sensor all tucked up under the same piece of glass. With our freezer over there as cold as ice,
it's only fair to bring some heat from the opposite end of the temperature spectrum. This guy has a 6.6 inch 1080p display, with
a 144 hertz refresh rate, and a 720 hertz touch sampling rate.

Pretty similar to that Legion Dual 2. This Black Shark 4's AMOLED display lasted
about 25 seconds under the heat from my lighter before going white, but eventually did recover. Before we check out that icicle of a cooler,
let's test the side mounted fingerprint scanner. This has already been scratched so it did
take a little longer than normal to set up my fingerprint since it was damaged. But I'll be honest, I think I prefer this
side mounted setup on the power button more than I do the under display sensors since
if it doesn't register my fingerprint or my fingers are wet or dirty, my finger is already
on the power button and just makes unlocking the phone that much faster.

I wish more smartphones did it this way. Finally, let's see how this refrigerated cooler
works from the inside. Black Shark is calling this the Fun Cooler
2. We had it down to about negative 1 degree
celsius when all by itself. Clipping it to a warm phone brings it up to
about 3 degrees celsius, but that's still like playing with your phone inside of a refrigerator. Pretty much guaranteed to keep things cool
and would allow the internal processor to be pushed far beyond its normal capacity.

There are 3 screws underneath the fan grill,
and then we have a thin piece of black rubber, which probably helps keep the plastic back
of the phone protected from the metal copper layer of the cooler. There are 4 screws holding that bottom copper
to the fan. Black Shark is using a thermal electric cooler
inside of this thing, sometimes called a Peltier Cooler since that's the guy who came up with
it back in the 1830's. Little did he know though that people would
be using his tech to more efficiently throw Angry Birds at pigs on their smartphones. Welcome to the future. The internal board components are covered
with a thick rubber waterproofing layer. Since the super low temperature differences
can literally form ice inside of here in humid environments, and you might think that this
metal part and these metal fins are for the phone, but this is actually made for the backside
of the Peltier Cooler since the far side of the white freezer chip gets hotter as the
side facing the phone gets colder.

We can see this in action as I plug in the
disassembled cooler and remove the freezer chip from the backside of the heatsink without
the fan and metal cooler to help get rid of that heat that the Peltier Cooler is producing,
it can get up into the 150 degree range before it gets too hot to touch. It's pretty cool technology. Even cooler is that this pretty much fits
any phone, not just the Black Shark 4. Peltier chips can also be used to generate
the electricity when placed in extreme temperature situations, but that's an experiment for a
different video. It's time to see how well the Black Shark
4, with it's plastic back and popup triggers can handle the bend test. I'm kind of nervous since the last two gaming
phones didn't survive. But with a bend from the back, the phone does
flex, then locks out and does not break.

When flipped over and bent from the front,
we do get a subtle bend and the screen shrinks down into one-handed mode, but nothing is
catastrophically broken. It's kind of nice having a phone survive again. It bends the most right above the power button
so I imagine that's where the battery and motherboard meet up inside of the device. But we won't know for sure until the teardown. I'm looking forward to this one. Not bad for a $500 gaming phone. You just make sure you keep an eye out for
all the saltwater Megalodons when you're out in the ocean.

Speaking of the ocean…Like I mentioned earlier,
Omaze is a company that works with creators to provide experiences and work with nonprofits. And for each donation made, you get entered
to win super large prizes. In this particular case it's a custom Tesla
Model S, and $20,000. Samantha W. won the Tesla Model 3 Performance
in the last dream house giveaway. The nonprofit we are supporting is called
Give Power. There are over 2.2 billion people on the earth
that don't have access to clean water, and Give Power is able to provide electricity
and clean water to those people who need it.

Give Power is also able to pull salt out of
the ocean to make clean drinking water for humans, animals, and plants. It's pretty cool technology. So for your chance to win the custom Tesla
Model S and $20,000 in cash, just head to Omaze.com/jerry to enter for your chance to
win. Huge thanks to Omaze for putting this on,
bringing awareness to Give Power and making things a little more interesting for people
who decide to donate. Do you think the Black Shark 4 is going to
be as complicated to open as the Black Shark 3? Let me know down in the comments. Hit that subscribe button if you haven't already. Come hang out with me on Instagram and Twitter. And thanks a ton for watching. I'll see you around.

Mudita Pure: Your Minimalist Phone – campaign video

Hey Mark its 7:15. Time to check how many
likes your post got. Not bad. Hmm Rachel got a haircut. Oh look at that funny dance
Trevor's parrot did! And his mom's in Cancun, tropical. Oh look at that, no time
for your morning jog. Again. Love that parrot. And the kitten, hilarious!
Let's see what your friends have to say about it. Whoa! Look up! Watch out! Yeah well done. Looks like Dave went for his run. Yet another political scandal?
Do you remember this child star? Look at them now! Oh nice you have a date. This could
be a match. Really? Is it that urgent? There you go. Well I guess it wasn't a match. Maybe it's time for a change…
I'll show you something. Hi, we are the founders of Mudita. We want to introduce you to Mudita Pure. Meet Mudita Pure.
Designed to Enjoy Life. Offline. E Ink display makes reading more natural,
and without blue light emission.

We added a frontlight in a pleasant, warmer color. Designed to be simple in its form and functionality. Comfortable to hold, it brings to mind
the shape of a stone. We wanted to be sure you're using
the safest phone in the market. With a patented antenna Mudita Pure
has an ultralow SAR. MuditaOS is light, reliable and minimalistic. It gets digitally signed updates to make sure
that your privacy is taken care of. No internet. And it feels great.
But if you need to go online Mudita Pure can serve as
a data modem for your laptop.

Just connect it via cable. Most feature phones only work in specific regions.
We were surprised too. Pure has a global GSM module for
travelling anywhere in the world. Harman speaker gives high-quality
and natural sound. What else? And last but not least: Meditation timer. Worth giving a try. A simple yet very useful feature that helps you focus on the present moment. We started working on Mudita Pure 3 years ago. During our research
programme we built our first prototype with a unique antenna with low SAR. Pretty huh? Our designer didn't agree. The last three years helped us take the
design, components and quality to the next level.

Mudita Pure is designed and
developed in Europe. We've created a light and secure operating system. And handpicked every single component. I'll give you an example. Most phone producers
use pre-made PCB. But they weren't enough for our goals, such as less energy consumption, compatibility with an E Ink display and ultra-low SAR. So we decided to build our own PCB instead. You see, we tested all of the phones,
but they didn't meet our expectations. So we have created the best classic phone built with wellbeing and health in mind. The phone that inspires us to spend more quality
time and do the things that make us feel alive. Our mission is to promote a conscious
use of technology. Be a part of it and help us bring Mudita Pure to reality..

Android 12 preview: here’s Google’s radical new design

(rubs hands) – Android 12, it is here
or it's being announced. The new beta where Google
actually tells us what the biggest new user
facing features will be, has been announced. And, I have seen a demo
and I've played around with the beta here on my phone, and I have some thoughts. Do you wanna hear my thoughts or would you rather just see
what's new in Android 12? Oh, why not both… This is Android 12. (upbeat music) Android 12 looks different
from what you're used to on Android, actually very different. Google says that this is
the biggest visual overhaul since 2014, or maybe ever, depending
on who you're asking. And yeah, a lot of the pieces of this operating system here do look very different, but it all basically still works the same. You've got a home screen, you swipe up for apps, you swipe on for quick settings and for your notifications,
etcetera, etcetera.

What you're really looking at here with these big buttons and
the really big bubbly sliders and so on is how the Android team has decided to implement a new design system that Google is calling Material U. Now, Material UX or material UI just Material U like Y O U, whatever. Now, when you're looking at the B roll and the screen recordings and the screenshots on this phone, you should know that it is how Google is implementing Material U on the Pixel. Whether and how Samsung or Xiaomi or OnePlus decide to implement
it is going to be different. And also, you know, much later because their updates always
come later than the Pixel. Anyway, I don't have the full details on Material U and how it works and so on. But, I do know that it's
supposed to apply to everything from the web to Android,
to apps, to even hardware.

What that means is I'm just,
I'm not going to get any of the HETI UI versus UX versus you. You stuff here. I'm just going to talk about what I am seeing here on this phone. And what I am seeing is good. For the Android team the U part of material you hear is an
automatic theming system. So, when you set a new wallpaper you're gonna to be given
the option to have Android pull up some colors from your photo and then, apply that theme with
those colors to the system. So you can see here that the
buttons have turned green, and there's also an algorithm for pulling out complementary
colors from the photo. It's kind of neat, but I don't know that I would have picked
this particular green if I were beaming at myself. And the good news is is you can pick whatever
colors you really want to. So that's neat, but really I
can tell you the whole story of this visual redesign just by looking at a couple
of screen recording.

So, here's Android 11
and here is Andrew 12. So first there's a bunch of new like lighting effects when you unlock the phone,
you can kinda see colors and shadows and light kinda sweep around. And, in general there's just more animations all over the operating system. And we're gonna come
back to why that is, but look, they're even taking advantage of these animations on
the lock screen buttons, and you can see the little color from the material U theming as well. Now, when we pull down the quick settings
and notification shade you see that they are just
very big, easy to recognize easy to understand buttons. Google's just not afraid of taking up more space with all of their UI and they're not trying to cram everything into the most information
dense thing possible.

I actually think it's
like a nice direction. There is another subtle difference in the notification shade, you can see that it's just covering
the entire screen instead of sort of being a translucent layer over. It makes it into an entirely new space. And if you look at the
notifications themselves you'll see that they're
groups together and signified by a bunch of bubbles for
each individual group. So there's conversations and silent notifications and whatever. But if you slide an
individual notification away there's this really
subtle effect where the hard corner turns into a bubble for just that notification to indicate that is its own separate thing. Now on the home screen, let's just pause a moment
to look at these widgets. They are brand new and they're based on an entirely new
system for making widgets that is based on these principles from the material U design system.

So, Google is gonna
update a bunch of their own widgets, but they're also hoping that they can get a bunch of developers on board to update their old
widgets to the new system. And, I really hope it works
because the widget ecosystem on Android has gotten really
crufty and messy over time and it is due for a refresh. Now, next stop are quick settings and Google changes quick
settings every single year. And this year is no different. The new thing this year is that the buttons are huge! I mean, just look at
them, but I don't know. I kinda like it. Google also puts smart home controls and Google wallet into
quick settings finally, which means that now holding
down the power button brings up the assistant just like it does on the iPhone
and on Galaxy phones. And all of that means "adiós weird power button menu from Android 11!". You tried… Finally in quick settings there are toggles for
camera and mic access and we're going to get
to those in a minute.

Oh you know what, one more
thing I just have to talk about that's not in the screen
recordings, the new lock screen when you don't have any notifications you have this giant clock on it and it's dope and it
matches your color theme. We do have notifications. It's still pretty big. It just gets a little bit smaller. It's a good lock screen! Now the version of the Android beta that Google is releasing
this month, doesn't have all of the gewgaws and bells and
whistles that you just saw but, there's enough here that you can see where
Google is going with it.

Like, even if you just
look at the settings I have all of the icons
and the text is bigger and they've got this new
over scroll animation that kinda squeezes things together. It's a big redesign but it's not a complete overhaul
of how everything works. Every design gets crufty over time. And Android was definitely
starting to show a lot of inconsistencies as new features piled on and old ones were kind of half forgotten. I see this design as a general cleanup. All the buttons are big and bubbly and I see a sense that things are going to be a
little bit more coherent now, and, I dig that. So that is the new design
system, but I wanna come back to a thing I mentioned at the
top to the smoothness thing.

Android has a, a reputation that the
only way to make it smooth and good-looking is to
throw more powerful hardware at it with faster refresh
screens or more RAM or whatever. With Android 12, Google's promising that they're going to make
the animation smoother for everybody through
software improvements. So, we sat down with Sameer Samat, the VP of product management for
Android and Google play. And here's how he explains it. – So we've done a few
things to make things to make the system feel smooth. We've reduced lock
contention and key services, [Sameer] activity window
and package manager. What that really means is, there are multiple different parts of
the system trying to talk to the operating system at the same time. And that's when you see things jitter or genic, by smoothing a lot of that out and by reducing,
for example, the amount of time that Android system
server uses by 22%, actually. We've been able to make all the motion and animation feel super smooth. – All right, there are
a few other interesting features that are being announced today. So, there is a proper remote
control app for Android TV.

They're going to have car unlock
that works with NFC or UWB if your phone has it and that'll work with a
few different partners. And later this year, if
you have a Chromebook it's going to be able to
directly access the photo library on your Android phone. So next up is privacy updates. Google is putting privacy updates in every version of Android. That is great. And this year there really are a bunch.

The main thing that Google is trying to do this year is tamp
down on unfettered access to your location, your
camera and your microphone. So there are new indicators in the upper right-hand corner
when they're being accessed. And there are those new
buttons and quick settings that just fully turns off your
camera or your microphone. So, when you toggle them off, an app that looks your camera just gets a black, nothing. It thinks the camera's there, but really it's just getting nothing. There is also a new privacy dashboard that will show you how often those sensors have been accessed and by which apps. So you can view your data
from the past 24 hours in a pie chart or in a
timeline, and then turn off all the different
access stuff from there. Now for location, there is a
new kind of permission that you can grant to an app that's
approximate location instead of just precise location. So, say you've got
something like a weather app and you don't want it to
know your precise GPS pin but you want to know what
neighborhood you're in, you can give it an approximate location.

So let's all the privacy stuff
for sensors, but there's also this new part of the
operating system called the Android private compute core. Now you might think
it's a chip because core but it's not, instead it's,
it's like a sandbox part of the operating system for
machine learning things. It doesn't store data. It runs processes. – A good way to think
about it is, when you have these advanced technologies,
like for example speech recognition or
natural language processing, and they need access
to certain information. Another favorite example
of mine is smart reply. [Sameer] Awesome feature,
looks at your notifications your chat notifications,
and suggests replies based on a speech and language model.

All of that runs on device
in private compute core. – From my perspective, basically
what all that means is that if Google wants Android to be
able to do something with AI that you might think is creepy, now they can put all of
those processes in a box and limit all communication
into and out of that box and everything in the box
can't access the network and it's only accessible via limited API. So, that all seems great
but is it more secure? We'll see. So that's all the privacy
stuff that Google wants to talk about but, there is another
kind of privacy that Google really isn't keen
on discussing that much. And that is app tracking for ads. Now, there have been rumors
that Google would follow Apple and limit some kind of app
tracking for things like ads but, Google also makes
all of its money on ads.

So – Taking a step back on this one, there's obviously a lot changing
in the, in the ecosystem. One thing about Google is
that, it is a platform company. It's also a company that is
deep in the advertising space. So we're thinking, very deeply about how we should evolve
the advertising ecosystem. You've seen what we're doing on Chrome. [Sameer] From our standpoint on Android, we don't have anything
to announce at the moment but we are taking a position that privacy and advertising don't need
to be directly opposed with each other, [Sameer] that we don't believe is healthy for the overall ecosystem as a company.

So we're thinking about that working with our developer partners and we'll be sharing more later this year. – All right, well, stay tuned for news from Google on that later. And speaking of later, when are you gonna be
able to get Android 12 on your Android phone? Well, do you have a Pixel? Because then the answer is easy. You're going to get it this fall. Do you not have a Pixel?
Well, then the answer is later. Google says that the speed by which companies are
updating their phones to the latest version of
Android has improved by 30% but still, other manufacturers besides Google just take awhile to get the latest version of Android on their phones. That's just how Android works. Alright. That's Android 12, a huge redesign that adds some consistency and coherency with big buttons,
big sliders, big everything! There's more theming options. There's a bunch of privacy indicators.

There's a bunch of stuff that they put in the developer betas that
I haven't even covered here and a TV remote. This isn't the most massive release ever but you know what, it's enough. (transition sound) Hey everybody, thanks
so much for watching, right now it is the middle
of Google IO, which means that there is a lot going
on and we're going to have a lot more coverage of
everything Google has announced, and, you know, in general
it's just a big tech week. So I think there's gonna
be a couple more videos on the verge you're
gonna wanna check out….

Zero to 100% charging test huawei honor 7x vs honor 6x

hello an outcome guys today we are going
to do a charging speed test between who huawei honor 7x and huawei honor 6x and that
test would be like this how long does it take to reach 100 from zero so these two
phones are already completely empty there is no charge left basically
nothing so I connected to the charger right now and I turn on the switch the
new people can see how long it's remaining and from there how long does
it take to reach 100 so I got this request many times so I have to make
this video guys for you only so I hope you'll like it and don't
forget to subscribe because this is really important is a really new channel
so I put the timer over here you can see and I start the timer and I turn on the
switch over they are basically that I cannot show over there so I'm turning on
the switch and then start the timer so three and here so I turn on the switch
you can see the charging spot coming here and let's wait a little bit
so yeah 2% and here come come come the display is not coming but yeah because
they are 2% so basically the rule between these two phones when it's 2%
then it says a message like you have 30 seconds of time so close your things or
save your data whatever you have then the phone automatically shut down when
it's 2% basically so you cannot make it 0% that's that's yeah that's the system
maybe it would make the battery dead or something like that that's why guys they
make this system so yeah we'll be watching so now it's 11 a.m.

Nearly
11 1 million before 11:00 here in Germany so yeah we'll see how long does
it take so according to my experience this one should take 2 hours something
like 30 40 minutes and this one I really don't have any experience so we'll see
both of this phone how long does it take and will come time to time maybe after 1
hour I will be over here again and give you an update about it and so it's 100%
of course I'll be here and I'll be watching every 5 to 10 minutes that how
long like how many percent is it costs oh yeah I'll give you an update time to
time so guys keep watching and guys I'm doing all those crazy experiment and all
those things only for you guys so I really need your support and of and yeah
and because of many of my viewers who suggested me that make the videos
between who I honored 7x and Xiaomi me a 1 so I'll make that video with why honor
7x and yeah this video this 3/4 of course will be there and another one
also coming that is redmi note 5 a so i'll have four phones over here to
compete against each other so yeah that would be fun to test and soon I'm
getting 1 plus 5t – so we'll make Chris experiments between this all those
phones together so I hope you will like it
and guys yeah let me know your thoughts in the comment section below what should
I make more so that I can wish I can I can fulfill your wishes so let me know
your thoughts and yeah be a member of this family subscribe to this channel
see you guys very soon so it's 6% here
4% here and it's 3 minutes 39 39 seconds right now so yeah catch you guys very
soon so guys once again we are here so it's 1 over 2 minutes
right now and see the result so after 1 hour 2 minutes it's 61% and this one
also 61% so this is basically same yeah the charging time basically I
think it could be the same so yeah it's sixty-two percent right now
in one hour three minutes so let's wait a bit more and let's see how long
finally it takes to reach 100% of charts own then we'll make a better rain test
also maybe today I could finish that test because battery drain tapes test
takes really really long time you know what I'm saying you just have to sit
with your phone for more than five hours or six hours you have to give eyes on it
for yeah every five minutes and ten minutes something like that so it's a
yes still so it's not a big deal but we'll try to do that test
also today so yeah I have many things to do then I will make camera review test
also with this one because yeah I'm getting many requests to make camera
review of this one so I have to make this one also so I'll try to make all
those videos to a tray so if you don't get any video today that's for sure that
you will get that video tomorrow so don't be sad about anything things are
coming Noorie about it i'm here to show you the
result and show you the thing so yeah by the time I'll show you everything I show
the things I'll see you soon yeah so guys once again we're back here it's 1
over 36 minutes and we will see the battery percentage right now and another
thing is I'd show you in why oh no 6x you can see the notification light over
here it's kind of yellow yellow yeah and in who I own seven X also there is a
notification light you can see over here it's also here you know so kind of same
color and I will show you when the character
basically and let's see the percentage right now it's 87% it's also 87% so the
phone is turned off together and it's one hour at least seven minutes right
now and let's wait for the 100% and I see you soon again guys we are back
again here is one hour 52 minutes right now and you can see the light over here
it's green and it's here also green you can see so being light over here again
right over here before it was a yellow right now it's green so we'll try to
find out after reaching 100% of charge how would be the color so yeah now let's
see the percentage right now it's 94 percent right now and there's 93 percent
right right now so we'll wait quite a moment and let's see when it's ninety
percent ninety nine percent basically so we'll be here and we'll try to take a
look how long basically is taking to get fully charged I'm so excited guys to
make this test yo so see you guys really really really soon yeah
so guys I'm again here it's two hours 9 minutes right now green light is all
green light is on so now the charge level is 98% so we are really really
nearly close so I think within 2 hours maximum twenty minutes everything will
be done that's what I think so I really I'm not really exactly sure about it but
yeah so you can see we're really close 98 98 I just don't want to miss this one
maybe yeah because of some reason maybe I missed one hundred percent charge for
some reason I don't know that's why it's really near to 100 percent that's why
I'm here to show you use 2 hours 10 minute so I'll make this video as short
as possible so I'll see and yeah that's a really tricky test you're not I'm
saying because you have to be sit here without doing anything and constantly
observing the phone it is really really oh my god I have never done this kind of
test in my life before it's freaking weird us sometime but it's ok everything
is fair in worse so yeah that's this this is something like different for me
and really it means a lot and so yeah no problem guys so later we'll be doing a
battery drain test also yeah it will be getting this video it will take some
time you know because it takes really long
time to train the battery completely yeah I'll do that video and soon my next
video exactly the next one will be a video about the headphone test in who I
on are 7x how to be the interface when you put the headphone and the equalizer
and the bass level and basically the sound system when you put headphone
inside this phone so yeah till then guys she was really really
really really soon yeah guys I had to come back again because it's 12 2 hours
12 minutes and see you can see it's 99% 99% so I have to constantly see which
one comes first yeah of course this one comes fast but
the right time exactly so yeah we'll be watching this one till the end right now
and yeah we'll see we'll see don't go down don't go down so yeah and
it's 99% right now 98% right now so yeah guys I should put it time lapse right
now over here so maybe for some reason if I miss this so I can say so I start
my time lapse over here where's my time lapse yeah hyperlapse and I put this
camera over here so I wanna catch this moment basically so all is good and 99
percent 99 percent 98 percent come come come come come come come
so yeah this is pretty crazy test yes it's making me crazy too I'm being crazy
seriously because it's taking my time and I have
all take my head like this and waiting waiting and waiting
II just don't know when when it just cannot do anything just watching that
time you just don't know how long does it take it
it's really really weird it's 98% 100% yeah you can see oh thanks God thanks
God so it's 2 hours and 17 minutes you can see and the phone is completely 100%
oh yeah so the green light is still green light so yeah I think I just need
to take this out then the light will be gone and we're still waiting for this
one and yeah we are waiting waiting and waiting
so guys you can see it's 100% right now so it took two hours 25 minutes
basically so we stopped this one over here so this one who I honor 7 X 2 2
hours and 17 minutes and who I on are 5 X took 2 hours and 25 minutes so you can
see over here so I hope guys you liked this video and I'll be doing another 2
videos basically today one is better writing test that coming late at the
night and another one is the headphone interior check like when I put the
headphone inside it and how to be the interface of music player in who I on
are 7 X so that video is coming really soon so guys see in my next videos till
then take care and peace in

Unfolding the first trifold phone

(instrumental music) – Folding phones are boring. Look we've had the first
wave of foldable devices and they're neat, but you've
seen all that already. This is about what comes next after the current generation of foldables. Sling like the tri-fold from TCL, a wild new concept, folding
tablet, phone thing. (techno-music) Unlike most foldables the
tri-fold has two hinges, which lets it fold up into thirds . You can use it as a phone, you can unfold it once
to use as a bigger screen or fold the unfolded
into a full size tablet. It's not a half way compromise
like some of the other foldables that we've seen which basically turn into just slightly
wider phone displays.

This is a full blown tablet. It's nearly as big as an iPad, but you can still fit it in your pocket. The screen folds from a 10 inch tablet down to 6.65 inch phone. You could also open it two-thirds the way and ya know prop that up it'll auto rotate so you can use in whatever
orientation you want. There's a lot of weird use cases that you could probably use this for. The screen on this one is a 3k panel, but again that's just this prototype.

We have no idea if the finished
version will have that, but the tri-fold shows just
how hard it's gonna be to turn these ideas into reality. I've gotten to play around
with the prototype for a bit and it's really rough to use right now. It is incredibly heavy for a phone. It's got those big metal hinges
and there are three separate batteries to power all those displays, it's basically three phones.

And even though it's really
thin as a tablet the phone mode is super thick and that's
before your worrying about things like the software, which is basically non-existent. Durability which is a huge question or price which who even knows. (techno music) But looking even further into the future. TCL also had a very early
mock up of a rollable phone. This is really cool idea
that's a phone that has a fully flexible display that
slides around the side and behind the phone. And it could roll back out
and become a larger display when you need more space. The way it will, in theory, work is that there's gonna be motors
on the inside of the phone and you'll press a button
and it'll expand out from a 6.75 inch display
to a 7.8 inch screen.

Now that doesn't sound like a
lot, but your actually getting almost double the screen space
it's almost twice as wide. The whole system is actually
pretty similar to the rollable Oled TV that LG's been
showing off for years. Now again this is a really early concept, it's not even a functional
device, just plastic and a screen that's literally
just a sheet of paper.

Is this a good idea? Who knows. It does avoid some of the
issues of current foldables, like those easily breakable hinges and the creased display which is cool. But it's almost guaranteed
to have issues of its own. Moving parts they're tricky. Now the tri-fold is
just a proof of concept and the plastic sliding one even more so. You won't actually be able to
buy either of these devices and it's not clear if TCL's
actually gonna make products based on these concepts in the future.

So why should you care. Well, first of all, because it's cool. I mean look at this thing
it's a phone that unfolds into a giant full size tablet. And it actually turns on and runs android, it's like a science fiction prop. But it's also important,
because TCL is planning on eventually making
foldable and rollable phones that might actually look like these. Possibly as early as next year. The company says that it's
experimenting with dozens of different form factors right now.

So it's possible that phones like these, could be real one day. Look phones have basically been the same for the last decade. Black boxes with touch screens. Devices like the tri-fold
or that sliding concept, even if they're not here yet, show off what the future phones might one day look like. And that's really exciting idea. Thanks so much for watching. If you want to see more videos

Note 7 Battery Explosion!! CAUGHT LIVE ON CAMERA!!

Rechargeable Lithium ion batteries are everywhere
– Electronics, tablets, laptops, cars and pretty much every single cell phone. And most of the time, these lithium batteries
are incredibly safe. As long as the lithium fail-safes are in place. Fail-safes… that work. Samsung just, voluntarily, recalled an estimated
2 million Galaxy Note 7's as a safety precaution. Since some of the batteries are exploding
inside the phone. Obviously, random explosions are not a feature
that most people look for when purchasing a cell phone. So lets take a look at the Note 7 and assess
why it might spontaneously combust. During charging, the phone is protected by
multiple fail-safes.

First off you have the part the plugs into
the wall; the charger, and the cable. If the charger is faulty, or not designed
specifically for the phone, it can effect the safety of the battery. It can destroy the battery's protection circuit
which ill show you in a second. The charging port is also a fail-safe as well. It tries to do its best to protect the phone
and the battery from faulty chargers and incorrect electrical flow. BUT as a last resort, the battery also has
its own fail-safe built in.

Here is where the battery plugs into the mother
board to receive its juice and supply the phone power. Then we have this circuit board; also called
the protection circuit, at the top of the battery. This controls the flow of electricity AND
the temperature of the lithium. All lithium batteries should have a variation
of this board. It makes sure that the battery does not over
charge, and it has a thermal fuse of sorts will blow if the temperature gets too hot,
thus protecting the lithium inside from rapid unplanned catastrophic dis-assembly. The body of the battery is typically two layers. The Anode and the cathode, which are separated
by an electrically conducting fluid. This is oily and smells surprisingly of burnt
skittles. The combination of these elements allow your
phone to charge and function as long as the battery protection circuitry is working correctly
and the electricity and temperature of the lithium are regulated.

If it is not regulated correctly during charging,
the lithium will react violently. So if we look at one of the exploded phones…
we can easily see which of the fail-safes… is failing at being safe. The charging port sits here inside of the
phone. There are no burn marks near the port, OR
where the port connects to the motherboard. BUT we do see some scorching where the battery
sits. Not where it plugs into the main board which
would be about here. But it explodes in the center of the battery. Around the battery hole in the thick aluminum
midframe. So on this particular exploded Note 7, all
of the connections are good, its just the battery itself isn't behaving. Tesla cars are also powered by lithium batteries,
and the Model S had a small issue at the beginning of production where the batteries on the undercarriage
could get punctured by derbies on the road… which could cause the lithium battery under
the car to explode.

Tesla corrected this problem by adding a titanium
puncture proof under-plate to the Model S. The Note 7 batteries are definitely not being
punctured internally. Since there is nothing to poke them on the
inside as you can see from my teardown video. It sits on smooth aluminum. So since the Note 7 battery isn't being punctured…
that narrows us down to overcharging, shorting, or impurities in the battery itself. A small metal impurity in the lithium could
short it out. Personally, I think the problem has to do
with the little circuit board failing at the top of the battery during charging. From what I have read about the people who
have complained publicly about their Note 7 exploding, the phone was charging when it
happened.

The phone starts charging… the tiny regulator
doesn't do its job and the battery enters into a thermal runaway and the voltage regulator
cant stop the chain reaction. Since this particular Note 7 battery isn't
plugged into the phone right now, my tweezers are acting as the other possible failure point;
a metal impurity in the manufacturing of the battery; That could possibly short out the
battery. All of this smoke and fire would be under
extreme pressure locked inside of your water tight Note 7, the more pressure there is..
the bigger the explosion. Remember this only happens on a VERY SMALL
number of devices. So far its only happened on 35 phones out
of 2 million.

So, ya definitely take advantage of the recall,
but also feel free to use your phone as normal in the meantime…. just don't set it on your
lap while its plugged into the wall…. and maybe take a fire extinguisher with you to
bed… just in case. My Instagram followers saw the results of
this combustion before the video was posted to YouTube, So follow me there, if you want
to stay updated on my future projects.

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.

Vivo Nex S – Hidden Camera Durability Test! – Scratch and Bend

The Vivo Nex S is that sweet looking, bezel-less
Android smartphone with the motorized popup front facing camera, and in-screen fingerprint
scanner. Probably the most futuristic smartphone we've
tested so far this year. Even though it looks epic from the outside,
I'm honestly more excited to take this one apart and review it from the inside. But, like always, we got to test it first
while it's all in one piece. Let's get started. [Intro] Right off the bat this thing looks incredible. Full screen design with no notch just looks
good. The colorful edge to edge display is impressive
all by itself, but we aren't really here to talk about the screen. There is so much other weird tech inside of
this phone to check out, starting with that camera. It just pops out of the top like a daisy in
springtime. It activates by poking out like an accessory
on R2-D2 each time I turn on the front facing camera.

And then it retracts as soon as I switch back
to the rear camera or exit the app. The sound you hear isn't the actual sound
the hardware is making. It's an added affect. There are actually 3 sounds. I'm going to leave mine muted, but if you're
looking to impress your friends or show off the mechanical extremity of your phone, the
extra sound is a nice effect.

The extended camera niblet does feel very
solid. There is no wiggle to the block. And when I press down hard on that camera,
it will dip in for just a second and then come back up, or retract all the way if I
press in too hard. It's still very firm though, and feels like
it can handle it's own. The only way to know for sure will be to see
how solid those tracks are from the inside, and see how the lifting mechanism is made. But for now, it seems like it can handle normal
abuse. Even when I try to hold the camera out while
it's pulling itself inside, the first time the motor is strong enough to yank the camera
from my grip.

But the second time, the gears spin for a
second and then succeed in pulling it back. It's surprisingly strong. Thumbs up for that. We'll come back to the front camera in a second,
but now let's see what else the phone has to offer. It's definitely nice of Vivo to include a
plastic screen protector on both sides of the phone. Any protection is good protection. Now we can start with the scratch test. There is no mention of Gorilla Glass on this
Nex S, but since we've made it past the level 3 pick, we know the screen is not plastic.

We start seeing scratches at a level 6, with
deeper grooves at a level 7, meaning we're looking at tempered glass. Sapphire would be a level 8 unless, of course,
it's Apple's sapphire, that's still a level 6. You might have noticed that there is no earpiece
on this phone. It doesn't pop out with a robotic camera on
top either. The Vivo says it uses vibrations instead of
a speaker. It's definitely a weird thing that takes some
getting used to, but it works. No matter where you put your ear on the frame
of the phone, you can hear sound imminating from the device…kind of like those bone
conduction speakers. For example, this is what a normal earpiece
sounds like. This is coming out of an iPhone 8. It's pretty standard across all smartphones
with a little speaker inside the earpiece. You can't discern one smartphone from the
other just by the earpiece inside of the phone. Unless, of course, there is no earpiece speaker
inside of the phone.

This is what it sounds like from inside the
Vivo S Nex. It's done through vibrations instead of a
speaker, and pretty much sounds the same no matter where you're listening on the phone,
since the vibrations encompass the whole frame. It sounds a lot like a speaker phone, but
contained in a much smaller area. Another successfully hidden component is the
fingerprint scanner hidden underneath the display. I tested this previously with the Vivo X20,
and even with scratches on the glass, the Vivo Nex S still functions. Hiding the scanner under the screen is pretty
impressive – technologically and physically. I made a super in-depth video on what that
particular component looks like with the Vivo X20. It's pretty magical.

With a closeup look at this Nex display, you
can't even see where the scanner is hidden, so they're doing a pretty good job. The sides of the phone are made from metal,
including the volume button and power button. At the top of the phone we have our headphone
jack, which is incredible. Vivo has a bezel-less, notch-less phone and
still includes that headphone jack…while Apple's over there claiming there's no room
and dongles are the way to the future. Last time I checked, Apple's sold 23 different
dongles, so you know what direction Apple's taking their innovation.

Taking a closer look at the front facing 8
megapixel camera. The metal housing is solid with no loose movements
in any direction. The camera lens is made from glass, which
is important because aluminum is lower on the hardness scale than glass is, which means
no matter how many times the lens extrudes out of the phone, it won't ever get scratched
up by the metal right next to it…even if it ends up rubbing a bit. A scratched up camera lens would be annoying. The back of the camera has more metal and
a little auto-lifting logo on the back. I'm still excited to see it from the inside,
but I'll be patient. This phone is not water-resistant by the way. The Vivo Nex has a textured assistant button
on the side. This guy's name is Jovi. I don't know what his competency is compared
to Bixby, Siri, or Google, but he is there permanently.

The bottom of the phone has our standard USB-C
charging port and a dual SIM card tray. Fun fact, if you ever still your little tool
in the wrong hole, like this little microphone hole right here off to the side of the tray,
it probably won't cause any damage since the microphones are placed off at an angle inside
the phone and the tool only goes straight in. The psychedelic back panel is pretty intense. Instead of Vivo just picking one color, we
get all the colors. It is glass, which makes me think that a clear
phone might be a real possibility. I'll have to give that a try. Let me know in the comments if you want to
see that one. One thing I would change is that this camera
setup is doing the whole death sensor blurred background thing.

I still prefer an extra telephoto or wide-angle
camera lens over a blurred background feature. A blurred background can basically be accomplished
with just one lens anyway. The dual color LED flash is also under the
glass on this one. And now for the burn test. This wall to wall, 6.6 inch AMOLED display
lasted quite a while. A burn test is basically a mandatory, yet
semi-pointless stepping stone to get to the next event. Kind of like what algebra is to graduation. The Nex lasted an impressive 16 seconds under
the heat from my lighter, which coincidentally is about how long I lasted in math class. Hit that subscribe button if you haven't yet. The structural bend test is next. We'll see if the motorized rails inside of
the frame compromise the structural integrity of the phone.

There is a little more bend than I'm comfortable
seeing, but still no cracked glass or catastrophic failure no matter what side the pressure is
applied from. So I'm very pleased to report that this technologically
advanced metal and glass sandwich passes my durability test…even the protrudy bits. Phones passing my test is a very good thing. It means that manufacturers are putting thought
into construction and the longevity of our devices, which is good for us as consumers
and our wallets, but also the planet.

Phones are pretty hard to recycle, so the
longer they last, the better. Now we just need Vivo to bring their stuff
here to the United States. Only China, India, Russia, Malaysia, Hong
Kong, and Taiwan get the cool phones at the moment. No US or UK, unfortunately. I'll keep the description updated if that
changes. And come hang out with me on Twitter and Instagram. Thanks a ton for watching, and I'll see you
around..

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
