This $200 phone can do ANYTHING!!! – Pine64 Pinephone

– When we looked at the Librem phone 5, a lot of you were asking, why are you looking at
this piece of trash? I mean, I'm not saying that it was trash. You guys were saying that it's trash. Obviously, it wasn't quite finished yet, and there was a whole
bunch of other issues. And you're like, why
haven't you taken a look at the Pine64, the Pine phone, you know, this thing here? And I'm like, because we are. Like, this has been on our radar since it was announced. This thing has taken a long time to get to a like a workable state. And what we have here is
the Community Edition. I haven't actually like
looked at this at all yet, so, here we go. (chuckles) The box itself is pretty plain, this is Pine64 Mobian Edition. On the side here, package contents, user manual, quick
start guide, Pine Phone, USB-C power cable, and USB-C dock.

Really? Interesting. Okay, nothing terribly
interesting on the back, although it does say that it has a 2800 milliamp hour battery. – [Jono] Is that small? – It's pretty small. (Jono chuckles) It doesn't want to… (box rattling) Like everything else in Linux,
you do it yourself, right? – [Jono] Haha, got'em! – Ah, all right. Tiny little user manual. Anything in there? Before using this device, please read this manual carefully. Oh, back case removal, right, so this thing has a removable
battery and stuff too. What's this? The operating system
build you're receiving is more than a month old. So, following the initial
setup of the device, you should update to the
latest available release.

So what's in the box? We got the phone itself, which, again, is not coming out. Oh okay, a micro SIM, a nano
and a micro SIM adapter. We've got a nice red USB-C to A cable, and a USB-C doc. Oh, that's actually really nice. It's solid, it's got an aluminum shell. It's got ethernet, probably gigabit, HDMI, and two USB type-A ports on here and yeah that's everything. But yeah, it's really nice. Oh, and it has a little
power input here as well. So, B, I wasn't to expecting to have something like this in the box. – [Jono] Why would you
have that kind of dock? – If you remember the Librem phone, part of the problem
was that not everything was fully touch capable at the time, so a doc like this helps
significantly with things that may or may not be
fully compatible yet.

Also, I mean this is just running Linux, this will get you a Linux desktop, like an actual Linux
desktop, on your phone. So, it's actually cooler
than I'm letting on. And here is the phone itself. It is significantly less
chunky than the Librem. In fact, it is, well it's
not quite iPhone slimness, but it's like decent slimness. I don't see any hardware disconnects or anything like that on it, but it does have a camera, and I'm going to test to
make sure that that works. Do we have a SIM card? People asked us to like make sure that like calling actually
worked on the previous phone.

Should we make a call on this phone? Did that have a SIM eject tool in it? I feel it didn't have
a SIM eject tool in it. I went to all the trouble
to get a SIM eject tool but then I realized the back
of this thing comes off, so it probably doesn't even need one. I don't know if you can
see that, make it out, there's a little divot in
here you get your thumb into, and you just pull it right off. Just like that. How does this work? Okay, so the battery
obviously just comes out, I think. Okay, either this is like
glued in place or something, or I'm just stupid.

Remove the battery using your
fingernail or prying tool. Well, I've been trying to do that. Oh, that is not pleasant. Mm, mm, okay.
(Jono laughing) Why was that so difficult? Clearly this phone has
not been set up yet, so we're going to go through
the whole experience. Usually phones are set up prior to hitting the short circuit set. Now that I look at it a little closer, there is a bunch of things here, like there's an SD card slot
and a micro SD card slot here. This module looks totally removable. This reset switch, I'm
not sure what that does. And these dip switches, what do these do? Well, these are like
those hardware switches that were on the Librem phone.

So, instead of having them on the outside, you need to pull the
back off to get to them, but they'll actually physically
disable like the webcam, well, not the webcam, the actual camera, the modem, Wi-fi, and Bluetooth, microphone, rear camera, front
camera, and headphone jack. So you have much more control actually. So I guess you would use
something like this spudger here to go in and just toggle it off like that. Not as easy, but you get more of them. So, let's pop the battery
in for the first time. Oh, this might need to be charged. Pop the back back on. And I'm noticing they even have this little pre-applied screen protector, so I'll just go ahead
and peel that right off. We ready to power it on? – [Brandon] Yeah! – But first I'm going to
talk to you about Unbounce. Unbounce is the landing
page platform that helps you convert more visitors into
leads, sales, and customers. You can build beautiful high
converting landing pages with no coding required
using their easy drag and drop builder, and they've got over a hundred templates that allow you to bring

What's more, you can earn up
to 30 percent more conversions with their latest AI powered
feature, Smart Traffic. Why wait? Click the link below and use code CIRCUIT to get 20 percent off
your first three months of Unbounce today. Oh right, I was going
to install a SIM card. I guess we're going back in. Does this take nano SIM? It doesn't look like it takes nano SIM. Everything should be using nano SIM, there's no reason to use SIM or micro SIM. This adapter is not very fun to use. There, that's probably in. It's got a nice little power LED. Oh look, you can see me in the reflection. You are about to install Mobian Bullseye, user interface Phosh. Okay, partitioning,
formatting, blah, blah, blah, running Mount operation,
installation failed, no partitions are
defined for mount to use. Well, this is going to be a short one. Oh wow, it just like
straight up dumped me out to a terminal.

Yeah I got nothing. There's no keyboard, there's no… Actually I've got, I have this type-C doc. Hey Jono, can I get you
to like get me a keyboard? – [Jono] Oh God, Really? (laughing ) – [Jono] Oh no! (both laughing) – All right. Uh oh, maybe that's what
the reset button is for. I'm going to try pulling the battery. Okay, it's booting, maybe. And it crashed again. They really weren't kidding when they said that you needed to read
the entire thing, huh? Power the pipeline on, blah,
blah, blah, blah, blah. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. So, without Sudo, what can I do? Yeah, I think probably
what I'm going to have to do is flash an operating
system onto an SD card, and come back to this. Well this seems to be a bit of a thing with my short circuits, isn't it? So, (chuckles) we talked to Pine, and they didn't really
know what happened exactly, so we're just going to
chalk it up to a, you know, bad firmware image from the factory.

Thankfully, they actually
do have some images you can download to an SD card, and I've got one of them right here that I'm going to throw in. And they also have an image that lets you just plug
your phone in with USB, and transfer a new image that
way to the internal storage. They call that jump drive. So, it's pretty hard to
break one of these things, so if that ever happens to you, just get a micro SD card and
flash one of their images. It's getting easier over time. Wait, do we still have have the adapter? (box rattling) Now I get to deal with this again, this adapter is not very nice. Oh, this SIM card tray is the worst.

There we go. Okay, cool yeah, it is
booting off of the SD card, I'm not sure if you can read that, but it says resizing file
system during initial boot. That's because the image is
only like three gigs in size, but it'll actually just expand out to whatever size SD card you have, that way you're not losing any space. Oh okay, so we've got a lock screen. It's kind of slow. It's obviously not hardware accelerated, and if I were to open Files, for example, it just kind of closes the app drawer and I'm not seeing anything, until eventually it'll come up. Yeah, there you go. And what I'm presuming is a
camera app called Megapixels. It may not be a camera app. No, it is totally the camera app, and it, ho, ho, oh, that is a camera. That… – [Jono] Does it work? – Oh, it works. Settings aren't functional yet. So, I'm just going to go ahead
and attempt to call myself.

Okay, yep, the calling seems
to be working just fine. I mean it's a little scratchy. It's not terrible call quality. I've got another SD card here
with three operating systems. Yeah, You don't have to run Mobian, you can run whatever you want. So, I'll just quickly keep
going through Mobian here and see what else is in here. Will it play YouTube videos? (soft music) – [YouTube Video] That is breathtaking. – [Anthony] You're breathtaking. – [YouTube Video] Have you seen this Andy? – So we can't blame that on the SD card. The reason why this
thing is not performing particularly well is because it's running an Allwinner A64 quad-core SOC with a MALI-400MP2 GPU.

That is, the MALI-400,
that's ancient isn't it? Two gigs of LPDDR3 memory, 5.9 inch LCD, 1440×720, 16 gigabytes of eMMC, This one is the community version which has 32 gigabytes of eMMC, HD digital out, USB type C, Quectel EG25-G with worldwide bands, I guess that's the modem. WI-FI, N, Bluetooth 4.0,
it's got a vibrator. (laughs) They call it a vibrator. Okay, I'm going to find that app. Two megapixel front facing camera and a five megapixel rear, and a Samsung J7 form-factor battery. So, that's actually a relatively
common battery you can buy, which is cool. And it's got a headphone jack, right. Did I mention that before? It's got a headphone
jack, it's right there. Flashlight, is that just literally? Oh, it actually does work. Ooh, even just running the task manager is basically spiking a core. I'm trying to be charitable here. Let's shut this down. So let's try Manjaro Plasma
and see what that's like.

So this is KDE touch. It looks like a lot more like Android, but I feel like something is wrong. I'm only getting half the screen. Oh, hey, great, so this is
a lot more like Android. I kind of like the look
and feel of KDE touch a lot better than GNOME and
it has automatic rotation, unlike the other one, but it's, okay, it's no longer decent. This is 360, 240p. (laughs) Oh, it just keeps getting worse. Oh okay, there's the multitasking. So I can open up the Calendar. Wow, that took like 20 seconds for this Calendar app to load. Wait, YouTube is running
in the background? No, don't do that. That's why that took so long. Kind of need to work on the app suspend. Let's just quickly look into Ubuntu touch and see what it looks like.

Ubuntu, Ubuntu, Ubuntu, Ubuntu, now I don't remember
how to actually say it. Welcome to Ubuntu touch, get started. Oh, it's actually kind
of a slick interface. Does it auto rotate? It does and it's smooth! And the playback looks actually okay too. What's it running at? 360P, okay. Let's try, lets try 720p
and see what happens. It's fine. 1080p, let's just keep cranking it.

Yeah no, we're in slow
motion territory now. Okay, so it can do it. It's just, none of the
other operating systems has a browser that's capable
of actually running it, and closing an app is
just like that, cool! Ubuntu touch is a lot more like Android. This might actually be the
best experience so far. Let's try something else. I just want to see what
Sailfish OS is all about. This is Home showing your minimized apps. We've accessed events. Can I stop? I don't… Okay, I think that's enough of that. Sailfish OS, looks like it's promising. I would have liked to use it a little bit, but it seems like its decided that it doesn't really want
to go any further from here. But, the idea behind this phone is great. It's a privacy oriented
phone that you can open up, take the battery out of,
add an SD card storage, and adjust what actual devices you want to be running at any given time.

You can change the operating system. You can develop your own operating system if you really had a mind to. It's not powerful, but at the same time, at $200, it doesn't really
have to be, in my opinion. This is a very low volume product. Also, it comes with this
here, USB hub, which is great. I don't know, I really like
the idea of having a phone that doesn't cost a whole lot of money, that you can use for whatever
you need to use it for. Like you can run, like automation scripts, you can hook into pretty
much anything you want to hook into. You can set up a Raspberry Pi and have this interface directly with it with no weird software that's, you know, standing in between it.

It's got a full Linux
experience if you want it. It's a lot better than the Librem phone. After having a little bit
of time with this phone, I can tell you that the
Librem was kind of trash. This is so much better. It's still not great. You don't want it if you want
to like have a primary phone, or if you're like, oh I
don't want to go to Android, and I don't want to go to IOS, so I guess I'll go to Linux. That's not kind of what this is for.

This is for people who are
either already Linux enthusiasts, or who just want to play with something, and I think that's great. Thanks for watching guys. Make sure you get
subscribed to ShortCircuit for more weird videos like this one..

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

Samsung Galaxy S 2 Unboxing | Pocketnow

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

Nubia Red Magic 5G – Unboxing, Setup, and Review – (4K 60P)

hi everyone Aaron here for ZolloTech and
this is the Nubia red magic 5g this is their latest gaming phone with 5g
technology built in and comes in between five and six hundred dollars or so and
is available with eight gigabytes or up to sixteen gigabytes of RAM with 128 or
256 gigabytes of storage now let's flip this over and unbox it here so we'll
take the packaging off here or the wrapper and let's go ahead and open it
up and inside we have the phone itself now it should have an under the screen
fingerprint sensor we'll take a closer look at that in a moment and let's take
this packaging off and we have three different envelopes or three different
packages so inside this one we've got a SIM card removal tool then we've got our
Quick Start Guide it says here just some information about the phone and then a
warranty card as well now on the right we have a charging brick and this is not
the United States variant but there will be a United States variants USB a 2 USB
see look this back and then in here we should have our USB C charge cable so
and here is the charging cable it's a nice red color again USB a 2 USB C so
let's set that aside and take a closer look at the phone itself let's go ahead
and take the wrapper off the phone this is a really interesting color you can
see it says 5g here you've got your cameras so let's go over the specs of
the phone we'll take a look at the design the specs and everything else now
around the outside edge we have a little switch here this is usually a gaming
switch we have a little vent on the side so it's got air that goes through one
side and out the other to keep the processor cool
then we've got some pogo pins for some other accessories they sell on top we
have a microphone and a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack on the right again we've
got these shoulder buttons just like last year's Nubia
magic 3s you've got shoulder buttons here you've got your vent or intake and
then you've got a power and volume button here and they feel like they're
metal but I'm not sure if they are on the bottom we've got a speaker and then
we've also got our USB C charging port along with a microphone now we also have
a SIM card slot as well now we'll pop out the SIM card tray and
we should have dual SIM capability so on each side we can place a SIM card
there is no expandable storage in this phone now let's take a look at the specs
now this is the 12 gigabyte model with 256 gigabytes of storage internally we
have a qualcomm snapdragon 865 along with superfast ufs 3.0 storage and ddr5
ram so not only is the display 144 Hertz it's six point six five inches it's an
AMOLED display 1080 by 2340 with 388 pixels per inch and it supports DCI p3
now not only is it a hundred and forty-four Hertz but it has a 240 hertz
touch esports ultra smooth display it also has 300 Hertz touch sensing
capability on the triggers now on the back we have a couple different cameras
we have a 64 megapixel Sony sensor with an F 1.8 wide lens we also have an 8
megapixel ultra wide and a 2 megapixel macro camera so that's pretty
interesting we can also record in 4k 60 or 8k as well on the front we have an 8
megapixel F 2.0 wide forward facing camera as well internally we have a 4500
milliamp hour battery that supports fast charging with 55 watt chargers and
should charge at about 56% in 15 minutes it will charge 100% in 40 minutes if you
have that fast charger now it also supports Wi-Fi 802 dot 11a b/g/n AC and
a X or Wi-Fi 6 and bluetooth 5.0 a2dp apdex le so this is packed full of specs
for half the price of what you get with a samsung s 20 ultra for example but we
don't have that huge camera array on the back so let's go ahead and boot it up there we go now we'll go ahead and set
it up so we'll connect to a mobile network now it's connecting and checking
for updates and one thing I noticed is it says 90
Hertz in the upper left of the display so it says detected a new version update
now so we'll go ahead and update and it says it optimizes Play Store
compatibility and camera applications so let's go ahead and update this now it's
asking if I want to copy apps and data I won't copy I'll set it up as new and
it says just a sec checking info and we can sign in with Google or do that later
we'll skip that for now and just try to get to the home screen as fast as we can
here now this does have an under the screen fingerprint sensor so it says
unlock with fingerprint we'll hit next so we'll go ahead and setup the
fingerprint sensor every time we do it you can see the screen gets brighter
that's kind of interesting so it's must be optical similar to what oneplus has
says fingerprint add it will hit next and it says adding finishing touches
just to give you a size idea here is the red magic 5g next to a pixel for Excel
so you'll see the size difference thickness wise it's actually not too big
it has a nice curved edge to it so it's not too much bigger but the display is
bigger now if we put our finger on the fingerprint sensor there's an
interesting animation and we won't copy here now this is the home screen of the
nubia red magic 5g and we'll go to settings here after it updated and you
can see this is the 12 gigabyte variant with 256 gigabytes of storage running
Android 10 with the March 1st 2020 security patch so it's actually pretty
up-to-date already maybe there'll be a new update very soon with the latest
security patch now it's also running at red magic OS at version 3.0 now the home
screen skin looks like this it's pretty familiar as far as any other you've seen
in rent magic now a couple of things to know this is very similar to the Google
now launcher so if I slide over here we've got basically our Google now view
but you can't swipe up to go back you have to swipe back to get there so it's
kind of interesting and then it's highly customizable so you can see I have it
set to 144 Hertz for the display and you have that option to change it from 144
Hertz to 90 or 60 and leave it in the status bar so you can change it to 144
for eSports change it back when you need to save some
so that's really nice as well now in the notification in status bar we can also
show our network speed so right now it's gonna give us our overall speed if we're
using network connectivity and it's just nice that we have all these little
customizable options that are really key to people that are playing games on
their phone and if you don't like the gestures that I've been using you can
get back the navigation bar switch it out to whatever you'd like and other
than that you can see we have neo AI for smart game neo speed that helps you with
gaming and you've just got all these really nice effects such as colorful
lighting effects or low power off and all sorts of things now another
interesting thing is other than the lighting we have the cooling fan and we
can tell it to turn on to max speed or even have it turned on for quick
charging so it keeps the battery cool and then you can have it shut down as
well so it's really neat to have all of these different options and it's just
something that's a little bit different than anything else you see out there and
you also have some options such as always-on display they have some nice
options here but the thing that sets this phone apart from others that I've
seen is not its skin but rather it's a gaming mode so in the upper left we have
this little switch here we flip the switch and we go into our game mode and
so you can see we have access to the cooling fan RGB LED strips so if we go
into that we have an RGB LED strip on the back so we'll wait for it to turn on
or off it it lights up this part right here
I can turn it on or off if you want to use that and then also the cooling fan
on or off and now we also have some other options if we swipe from the right
we have options for our fan we have our display switch being switched to 144
Hertz just by tapping on it we also have 4d shocks so it's supposed to be a
better haptic feedback motor and then access to things such as blocking calls
blocking messages or taking a snap of the phone basically a screen shot and
then it also tells us what our CPU and GPU are running at and it's got a bunch
of really interesting stats that you don't normally see on other phones so
it's definitely set up for gaming now let me go ahead and add some games so we
can take a closer look now I've added a couple different games to this phone and
let's go into the gaming mode now as soon as I do this you're going to hear
the fans kick so we'll rotate it here and it's not
terribly loud let's see if you can hear this now that's what the fans ounds like
you can turn it off with this button here and then it kicks back on and it
seems to do a good job you can actually feel air blowing out of the bottom here
so let's go ahead and try a game now because this is in the game mode here
you can go through swipe through your games add a game you can sign in and
then if you swipe to the right it also again shows you what your CPU usage is
at you can assign your triggers and things like that it's really nice so
let's go into asphalt 9 first it seems super fast as well and the sound is
quite good but I have it turned down for this video now this game is super smooth
at 144 Hertz you can see that everything is running nice and smooth it's in full
resolution everything's turned all the way up and the phone is staying fairly
cool but it is getting a little bit warm and let me go ahead and go back to the
game space here you can just swipe in at any time and the back of the phone is
warming up a little bit but that's to be expected when playing something
intensive and ramping up the CPU and GPU let's swipe over and go to call of duty
and check that out so this game is super smooth on this display it looks great it
looks better than I remember it on the Xbox 360 and in general it's very
playable no problems here the framerate super smooth you've got that fan keeping
everything nice and cool now if we want to exit the game we can just swipe to
the right go to the game space and we're back to the main screen flip our switch
here and we're back to the home screen the fan shuts off and you just use the
phone as a normal device and all of your settings go back to normal it's a really
nice way to do a gaming phone and it's pretty interesting now as far as the
camera is concerned on the back we have some interesting options so if we go
into the camera you'll see that we have some zoom options so let me put the
pixel 4xl underneath so you can see this but we can go to 3 X 5 X and then 10 X
and it's actually pretty clear it's not too bad and we also have the option for
macro photos which you don't really see too often so what you need to do in
order to get macro is you actually go into the camera
family here and then in the camera family you go to macro and so maybe I
want to get really close to this looks like it's in focus there we go we've got
some focus peaking which means just the red outline here that lets you know
you're in focus and you can see we have a macro shot so if we zoom in it's
actually pretty nice so it's nice to have that as an option on the camera and
then also you have some really nice video options as well
so if we go into the options here you see we've got grid and things like that
let's see if we can go back let's go back to photo or video here rather then
go back into options and you'll see for the resolutions we have all the way up
to 8k but it recommends it for outdoor use because it probably needs a lot of
light so I've set it to 4k 60 so that's really nice it's got that option so
let's go ahead and see what it sounds like we'll go ahead and hit record and
now we're recording from the red magic 5g so this is what it sounds like just
recording out of it it does seem to have some odd focus issues from time to time
it doesn't seem like it's dual pixel autofocus but this phone is fine for
most people as far as photos and video but it's not going to be something like
an S 20 or a pixel for excel for photos at least with this current version of
software so here's my video on the Nubia red magic 3s let's go ahead and take a
listen to the speaker's quick and turn them up they go nice and loud but they
do distort it high-end so it's pretty good you've got a nice stereo sound as
well that's it for the Nubia red magic 5g let me know what you think about this
color and the phone in general in the comments below for its price it's really
hard to be as far as what you get for specs gaming you've got a fan you don't
have an IP rating really that's going to protect it because you have open vents
and things but in general it's a solid package for the price and you've got a
hundred and forty-four Hertz display which is really impressive but again let
me know what you think in the comments below I'll link this wallpaper in the
description as I always do and if you haven't subscribed already please

The Best Gaming Phone Is…

– Hey, guys, this is Austin. Between the ROG Phone
and the Razer Phone 2, 2018 is shaping up to be an awesome year for gaming smartphones. So with both of them on
the desk at the same time, why, I think a good old-fashioned
comparison is in order. First up we have the Razer Phone 2. Now, a couple weeks ago, we were able to get our hands on this, but it was a very brief hands-on, whereas this, this is going to be a little bit more of an in-depth feature comparison
review gaming benchmark. Are there other words
I can put in the title? Do you see how shiny this glass is? It'll never be this shiny again the second I put my
dirty fingerprints on it. Not only do we have a fast
charger included in the box, something that a certain
fruit-themed company might want to take note on, but we also have a series
of cables and dongles. But what's actually kind of interesting about the Razer Phone is that we have a USB-C headphone adapter. Now this might not sound impressive. In fact, it's included on most phones that don't have a headphone jack, which is basically
everything at this point.

But this actually does
support full hi-fi audio and supposedly has a
pretty good DAC inside. Next up we have the ROG Phone, and I actually don't
know to open this box. (Velcro crackling) Oh, wow, okay, that's,
all right, that's a box. All right. (chuckling) First up, we have the phone itself. So the ROG Phone's kind of unique in that not only does it have a USB-C and a headphone jack on the bottom, but it has two more USB-Cs on the side which are meant for accessories. So the last time I tried the ROG Phone, it was still a fairly early prototype, and I've gotta say, immediately,
this feels really nice.

We do have that, actually, is that aluminum? That's gotta be aluminum. It's incredibly heavy, though, wow. It really feels nice, and it's got such a heft in the hand, and unlike the Razer Phone, which is basically a
giant squared-off brick, this is much more rounded and a little bit more of
a hand-friendly shape. Something unique about the ROG Phone is that unlike basically every
other gaming phone out there, there's a wide range of accessories that are either included in
the box such as this fan, or other things that'll
be available for purchase.

You know what I feel like right now? I feel like ROG is trying to make the ultimate ROG Phone, right? Like, when we do Building the Ultimate, we try to find the ridiculous
and crazy accessories, but they're just selling
all of the accessories. You could literally
get everything you need to build the ultimate ROG
Phone straight from the store. Not only does it have the RGB, but it also has a fan,
USB-C, headphone jack, all that stuff, which is
rearranged to the bottom. This is cool. I really appreciate that
they put this in the box. I don't want to get too
into the dock right now, but the idea is that when
you're using the phone in landscape mode, your hand
is naturally covering up not only the headphone
jack but also the USB-C, so in addition to be able to
get a little bit of cooling, you also have those ports
on the bottom of the phone so you can easily plug it
in, plug your headphones in, and you won't get in
the way of your hands. (box thumping) Wait, what'd you, what are you doing? A Black Shark? Wait, are you trying to add another phone to the comparison in
the middle of the video? "You're Gamer, Let's Shark!" Oh boy, this looks exciting.

What's the deal with this? Oh. Oh, this is not the
original Black Shark at all. Okay, this is an unprecedented move in that there's a brand-new
unreleased smartphone on my desk and I literally
don't know anything about it, except that it looks kind of cool! That's something to know about it, right? So it's got a kind of combination
of aluminum on the sides but it still does have
that glass back panel, and I'm assuming that looks
kind of like an RGB logo? Oh, wow, that's quite the gamer skin, and, oh yeah, we do have
a RGB logo on the back. I like how we have this great comparison: look, it's the ROG Phone
versus the Razer Phone. It all makes sense. And now, I'm like, wait a minute, there's this totally new phone
that I have no idea about. I have to figure it out on the fly.

This is cool, though. I guess they've definitely
upped the RGB game. I mean, that's a look right there. So it looks like you
can individually change not only the logo color, but also the little Shark
Mode thing on the side. "By pressing the Shark button, "your phone will become a game console." What, a game console? In a smartphone? That's crazy! So after spending some
time with the Black Shark, a few things come to mind. First of all and probably the
most important for the video is that this is not a final phone and it's certainly not final software. There's definitely some tweaks that are going to need to go
on before this is released. And also, a lot of the
benchmarks and stuff don't even work yet, so
we're gonna take some of this with a grain of salt. There's also the controller, which actually doesn't
attach to the phone.

It attaches to the case
that comes with the phone, so it's maybe not the most
elegant way of doing it, but it's sort of like you
would expect with a Joy-Con. The only problem is that the controller only works wirelessly, so even though you can slide
it on, something like this, it actually doesn't attach with any kind of wires or whatever, so you still need to separately charge not only the controller
but the phone itself. The big problem is that this
is a Chinese market phone, which means that here
in the United States, well, it doesn't have
the Google Play store, or any kind of Google apps at all. Now there will be a global
version of this phone, and hopefully that will include, you know, the fundamental apps that you
would expect like YouTube, but for now, it's kind of
hard to get apps on this, unless of course you wanna play a little bit of Fortnite by chance.

All three phones have the very familiar Snapdragon 845 inside. So the ROG is slightly clocked higher, but the main difference between the three is that the Black Shark has an optional 10 gigabyte of RAM option, whereas the others only top out at a measly eight gigs of memory. Coincidentally, they all
have the exact same size 4,000-milliamp hour battery, which is a good thing for gaming, but from here, the
differences start to stand out just a little bit more. The first big difference is with displays. The Black Shark has a
perfectly respectable six-inch 2160x1080p panel. It's good but nothing spectacular, especially when you compare it to both the ROG Phone as
well as the Razer Phone. Move over to the ROG Phone, and while it does have that same size as well as resolution of the Black Shark, it is an OLED panel
running at a full 90 Hertz.

Now as far as I know,
this is the first time that any phone has hit 90
Hertz with an OLED panel. The Razer Phone has a slightly
smaller 5.7-inch display, but it is a much higher
resolution at 2560×1440, and importantly, it runs at a whopping 120 hurt refresh rate. Hertz, not hurt. It doesn't hurt to refresh,
it Hertz to refresh.

The only real downside is that
this is a very wide phone, specifically when you put it side by side with the Black Shark and the ROG. It's just not quite as
comfortable to hold, but that screen is really
well-optimized for video. Let's talk about these
screens for a second. The ROG Phone has a very
accurate OLED panel, and even though it's not the most well-calibrated thing in the world, it looks nice to the eye. The Razer Phone thankfully
is much, much brighter than the original version
of the Razer Phone. Again, it's not quite 100% there, but it is a lot better than
the previous generation.

And the Black Shark looks nice, but again, it's not quite final, so it's hard to run
any kind of real tests. It looks goods, but I really
feel like the winner here is the ROG just purely based on the looks. Where these phones really shine is with the higher refresh rate, so it's really hard to show on video, but even the 90 Hertz of the ROG Phone really does make a big
difference in small things like scrolling through a
webpage or moving between menus.

It really does seem a lot more fluid, and that definitely does
apply to the Razer Phone. Now, to my eye, I
actually can't really see a major difference between
90 Hertz and 120 Hertz. Theoretically, this is
a little bit smoother, and I will say it looks
maybe a little bit sharper when you're moving between things, but realistically, both these phones are a big step up over the Black Shark, or, well, every other 60
Hertz phone out there, which is basically all of them.

All three have dual front-firing speakers, but there's a clear winner as
far as which one sounds best. – 780-998-9551 Hey, guys, this is Austin. The Microsoft Surface line
has been growing a lot lately, with everything from a desktop all-in-one with the Surface Studio all the way down to the
cheap and tiny Surface Go, there's a lot to like. – I guess the ROG Phone
wins by default here. That's not what I was expecting. So the problem with the Razer Phone is at least with my specific unit, even though it is very
loud and very clear, there's definitely a
little bit of distortion on the very high volume. Something the ROG Phone
definitely does right are the extra features and accessories that come along with it. One of the main ones
is the squeeze feature. This is somewhat to what
you'll find on the Pixel where if I squeeze it, what
happens is it turns into ROG Gaming X Mode. The thing with X Mode is you
actually can customize it to do whatever you want, but I just like going X Mode, not X Mode.

X Mode! It's just kind of fun to do. But it's not only just for show, so if you flip the ROG Phone over, on the top are the AirTriggers. This essentially adds physical controls to the top of the phone, giving it a little bit more
of a controller kind of feel. The way it works is that each of them can be mapped to a specific
button on the screen. The way it works is that
inside the X Mode software, you can adjust the actual
touchpoint of where you want it, so for example, my right trigger is the actual trigger in the game, and my left is to go on to the sights.

You can do it however you
want, but the thing is, this is a really, really nice addition to give you a little bit
more of a physical control on a phone without having to carry around, like, you know, a
controller, or accessories. One downside to the ROG Phone is that this is one of the hottest devices that I've ever tested. Now it doesn't get uncomfortably warm, but after a few minutes of gaming, it does get a little bit toasty, which is where the included fan comes in. So what you do is snap
this on to the USB-C ports on the bottom of the phone. As soon as you clamp it on, not only will the RGB logo light up, but it will start a pretty easy little fan which will cool the back of the phone. Now in testing this doesn't make a massive difference to performance. What it does do is cool
off the back of the phone to make it a lot nicer
for when you're, you know, doing extended Fortnite gaming sessions and not sweating your fingers up.

Can you sweat your fingers up? Is that, I can't say
that, can I, that's weird. So what's the best gaming phone of 2018? Well, I really like a lot
of what Razer has done with the Razer Phone 2. I gotta give it to the ROG Phone. Not only does it have great
performance, it looks nice. It's got a lot of really cool features, but really, what kind of sells this to me over everything else is this
is the first gaming phone that's not only good at gaming, but it's also good at being a phone, and that, that kind of means a lot.
