    I think the more they work on and improve the phone it will get better (obvious statement I know lol) but the potential is there. I think if Red keeps with it, this phone could be a replacement for vloggers who lug around dslr’s

    The easiest way I found to describe how the screen looks is that it kinda seems like the original Nintendo 3DS screens, to not get a major headache you need to sit in a “sweet spot”

    Idiots who say an apple logo on the back would've made this phone great should shut up.
    Please, if apple had released this phone, people would know the features are gonna get better. If apple made this phone, it wouldn't be the first phone from a company that doesn't make smartphones in the first place, would it?

    I had a phone in 2010 that was called HTC EVO 4g, and the camera on the phone was a 5mp and it had 3d capabilities and I can kind of see the "4 view" function on the phone display although it is slightly visible it reminds me of that phones video and photo visuals while taken/captured in "3d mode." If you haven't heard of this phone before and compared the two I think you should make a video on the two's comparisons so you can see if they're quite the same. Just a bit of useless knowledge for you! Have a good day!

    I really loved everything about this phone the first time I held it in a store, but I have quickly changed my mind after realizing it is not water resistant, nor is the CPU any newer than 2017.
    Red almost had it, they only needed a new CPU to justify the price, and Water Resistance is a must for users like me!

    Just got the phone today without any knowledge of it, bought it impulsively lol. But I checked out the camera and speakers and I think they're great tbh. There are some let downs, mainly software related. Compared to my old s8 it just feels very very basic. But it seems to me like this phone can have some really good potential, or just utterly fail. I'm not yet ready to accept that I wasted my money lol.

    I can see the 3d effect from the phone on my phone. I’m sure it’s much more dramatic in real life, but I can definitely see a little of it from what’s in the foreground vs the background.

    they want to appear to be high end and charge high end prices and use low end parts. So why is it any better red? Make us a great platform to attach lenses to ( which no one has done well btw) that also happens to be a smartphone / computer. I feel like they have to fix this with modules or they'll loose their red reputation.

    guys in red are hugely retarded morrons. instead of making no phone or at least the absolute high tech raw video enabled smartphone with exchangeable mini lens system, a phone-red camera monitor with 5G streaming or other phography related stuff, they focus on whatever design and whatever trendy trash stereoscopic viewing that makes up for a horrdndous experience. but it is the same guys promising 18K cinemascope modular video sensor back in 2007, remember? ;)

  • Jordan Thistle
    Jordan Thistle 2 months ago

    I would say buy it, even if it's just for the investment. If red nails it with the modular systems and it becomes the next generation of phones and you have the very first production phone. You will have something like what the original iPhone in original box. Then you just made a solid investment.

    Ohhhh its like me beloved Evo 3d that I got like 8 years ago and still dig out from time to time to take 3d pics cause of the novelty of it, I want it lol, but as a backup-toy. FYI the evo 3d also had to use a separate app store for its 3d content also, but they even got gameloft to partner and make 3d ports of their other big mobile games specifically for the phone. This was when gameloft made the best mobile games(though they were knockoffs of popular AAA console games at the time) with no microtransactions or timers or anything. I have Modern Combat on mine and its baiscally like a 3ds, an old 3ds without the fact tracking though.
