This Phone has a LASER PROJECTOR built in?!

So a company called Blackview released a brand
new phone – for sale right now – that has a full-on projector in the top. Talk about crazy features. Today we're going to be durability testing
the Blackview Max 1 to see if it can handle every day life and see what this projector
is all about. Spoiler alert – the projector is a bit better
than you think it is. Let's get started. [Intro] So obviously, projectors need to be operated
in kind of a dark environment. They're not as bright as say a TV. But with one click, the Max 1 is activated
shooting the projector out the back. And right now we're about 2 meters away and
this is the equivalent of a 45 inch TV, which is incredible, especially since it's coming
out the top of a cell phone.

It's a laser projector with the resolution
of 720p, but it's interesting because you can just take it anywhere. It's in your pocket and you can use it at
a moment's notice where ever you want. Every now and then you might catch a line
in the video you're watching flickering down the projection, but that's only because of
the camera I'm using to film this phone. In real life it doesn't appear when you're
watching the projection. It has something to do with the camera shutter
speed or something like that. Here's another example with a little drone
history video that I made. This was me filming with the DJI Mavic Pro
2 out in the middle of Idaho with the wrecked plane in the woods.

Kind of an interesting video…I'll link that
if you want to take a look at it. It's crazy to me that they fit a laser projector
in the top of this phone, and it's displaying on the wall behind me. Some phone companies are like, oh, we don't
have room for a headphone hack, and then Blackview's over here putting an entire projector. So whether you want to watch movies or play
video games, what's cool about this is that it can actually display whatever's on your
cellphone behind you or on the ceiling of your room as you're using this phone. And it's super funny that Apple produced the
iPod for, you know, $300, and then there's this phone for almost the same price that
has a full fledged projector in it. It just goes to show you that your dollar
goes a much longer way with Android than it does with Apple. Blackview does say that while you're using
the projector, it can project for 5 hours before the battery goes down, which is pretty
impressive. So we've talked a bit about the features,
but you know we're really here to find out if it's durable or not.

Let's start with the scratch test. It's hard to get over how cool this phone
is. Quite possibly one of the coolest, or at least
the most unique phones of 2019. On the Blackview website, the Max 1 is being
sold for $400 with the caveat that it only works in Europe and Asia right now. That might change in the future, of course. But either way, it's pretty cheap. This might come as a surprise to nobody, but
the Blackview Max 1 starts scratching at a level 6 with deeper grooves at a level 7. The earpiece is made from metal with just
one thin row of circles just to let the sound through. There are 2 cameras on the front, both protected
by the front glass, a 16 megapixel front camera with a secondary depth sensor. The right side of the phone is pretty standard
– metal construction with a textured metal power button and a plain metal volume rocker.

The top is where the real party happens. Still all made from metal up here which is
good. But then when I go to analyze the rectangular
opening for the laser projector, it's made from plastic. Yeah, it is recessed below the frame so it
should be protected from scratches most of the time. But since plastic does scratch easier than
glass, special cleaning precautions should be taken when wiping off the surface. The left side of the Max 1 is pretty plain,
minus the removable SIM and SD card tray – huge fan of that.

It's very easy to transfer SD cards full of
movies. The bottom of the phone has a loudspeaker
grill, USB-C port, and no headphone jack. But since they stuffed an entire full projector
into the top of the phone, I think we can make an exception this time around. The back panel is made from glass with the
Blackview logo printed on the underside, which won't scratch off. The camera lens housing is made from metal,
and the circular lens protecting the 16 megapixel sensor is thankfully made from glass.

The fingerprint scanner is scratchable. After some heavy abuse it can still read my
finger, but then when I go to unlock the phone, it does not work every single time. The phone does get a little warm when the
screen is turned on and it's projecting at the same time. Not as warm as when I hold my lighter up to
it of course, but the little device is doing a whole lot of work when it's projecting. Luckily the internal 4680 milliamp hour battery
is there to handle the extra workload. It can supposedly project for 5 hours at a
time. Even after 40 seconds under the flame from
my lighter, nothing was really happening to the 6 inch 1080p AMOLED display…just a yellowish
tinge to the pixels, but they eventually recovered and the yellow tinge went away. To turn the projector on, it's just one click,
and then whatever's on your screen starts popping out the top.

Blackview claims their projector can make
a 200 inch screen, but I think it would be pretty washed out at that point. In a totally dark room, I think about 40 or
50 inches is plenty good enough. Good enough, of course, with the stipulation
that the phone is structural and can handle the abuse of everyday life. When bent from the back, there is no flex
with the phone. It's a pretty thick little guy with over 10
millimeters, which is 3 millimeters thicker than the iPhone 10s, but it definitely doesn't
budge. It's hard to argue with a super thick brick
phone construction. I was honestly getting kind of bored with
the smart phones of 2018, but here in 2019 with all of it's motorized cameras, internal
projectors, and time-of-flight cameras, and super high internal optical zoom cameras,
it's turning out to be a fantastic year for smart phones.

The Blackview Max 1 passes my durability test. It'll be super fun to see what that projector
component looks like from the inside. This phone is just yet another example of
if you want a phone that does cool stuff, you just have to pay less money for it. Would you every use a projector if it came
built-in to your phone? Let me know down in the comments. Hit that subscribe button if you haven't already. I will be taking this thing apart. And come hang out with me on Instagram and
Twitter. Thanks a ton for watching. I'll see you around..

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

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

I Bought The Cheapest Smartphone on Amazon…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What’s a smartphone made of? – Kim Preshoff

As of 2018, there are around
2.5 billion smartphone users in the world. If we broke open all their newest phones, which are just a fraction
of the total that’ve been built, and split them into their component parts, that would produce
around 85,000 kilograms of gold, 875,000 of silver, and 40 million kilograms of copper. How did this precious cache
get into our phones, and can we reclaim it? Gold, silver, and copper
are actually just a few of the 70 or so chemical elements
that make up the average smartphone. These can be divided
into different groups, two of the most critical
being rare earth elements and precious metals. Rare earths are a selection of 17 elements
that are actually common in Earth’s crust and are found in many areas across
the world in low concentrations. These elements have a huge
range of magnetic, phosphorescent, and conductive properties that make them crucial
to modern technologies. In fact, of the 17 types
of rare earth metals, phones and other electronics
may contain up to 16. In smartphones, these create the screen
and color display, aid conductivity, and produce the signature vibrations, amongst other things.

And yet, crucial as they are, extracting these elements from the earth is linked to some disturbing
environmental impacts. Rare earth elements can often be found, but in many areas, it’s not economically feasible
to extract them due to low concentrations. Much of the time, extracting them requires
a method called open pit mining that exposes vast areas of land. This form of mining destroys
huge swaths of natural habitats, and causes air and water pollution, threatening the health
of nearby communities. Another group of ingredients
in smartphones comes with similar environmental risks: these are metals such as copper, silver, palladium, aluminum, platinum, tungsten, tin, lead, and gold. We also mine magnesium, lithium, silica, and potassium to make phones, and all of it is associated
with vast habitat destruction, as well as air and water pollution. Mining comes with
worrying social problems, too, like large-scale human
and animal displacement to make way for industrial operations, and frequently,
poor working conditions for laborers. Lastly, phone production
also requires petroleum, one of the main drivers of climate change.

That entwines our smartphones inextricably
with this growing planetary conundrum. And, what’s more, the ingredients we mine
to make our phones aren’t infinite. One day, they’ll simply run out, and we haven’t yet discovered effective
replacements for some. Despite this, the number of smartphones
is on a steady increase; by 2019 it’s predicted that
there’ll be close to 3 billion in use. This means that reclaiming the bounty
within our phones is swiftly becoming a necessity. So, if you have an old phone, you might want to consider your options
before throwing it away.

To minimize waste, you could donate it
to a charity for reuse, take it to an e-waste recycling facility, or look for a company
that refurbishes old models. However, even recycling companies
need our scrutiny. Just as the production of smartphones comes with social
and environmental problems, dismantling them does too. E-waste is sometimes intentionally
exported to countries where labor is cheap
but working conditions are poor.

Vast workforces,
often made up of women and children, may be underpaid, lack the training
to safely disassemble phones, and be exposed to elements
like lead and mercury, which can permanently damage
their nervous systems. Phone waste can also end up
in huge dump sites, leaching toxic chemicals
into the soil and water, mirroring the problems of the mines
where the elements originated. A phone is much more than it appears
to be on the surface.

It’s an assemblage of elements
from multiple countries, linked to impacts
that are unfolding on a global scale. So, until someone invents
a completely sustainable smartphone, we’ll need to come to terms with how this technology
affects widespread places and people..

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
sure to like and subscribe.

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

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….

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

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

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