    Is that a Tesla surfboard in the background? If you're never going to use it you can send it to me. Someone told me about this phone today so, I figured you did a review and glad you did. It's not what I was hoping for. Will have to wait and see.

    when phone shoots a 3d video then that phone is worth it, if not its just a show off useless feature.

    I can't for the life of me figure out why they wouldn't partner with other 3D and VR efforts from companies like Nintendo, Google, Sony, Samsung, HTC, Oculus, etc. Maybe that would help make this phone worth owning.

      the new 1+ phone is 100 times better in every way except durability and it's over half the price..
      I'm actually still rocking the note 4 rooted, unlocked.. it's hard to find a phone to beat it.. it's still fast (rooted) removable battery (I'm on my 3rd or 4th battery) removable SD card, and a headphone jack, and an S-pen.. and the battery still gets me through 3/4 of the day, and has fast charging.. the fingerprint scanner is horrible though lol..
      everytime I think I've found a new phone I keep coming back to the note 4..
      I don't want an all glass phone, theres 100,000 broken ones on ebay, that suggests to me that they are very delicate, and that won't work for me..

    Is this Holographic Display like the 3ds?

    • William Felix
      William Felix 3 days ago +1

      Yeah. For video games and animations etc the 3ds is better. But like i said i found the effects strained my eyes and made the screen fuzzy.

    • Suilenroc
      Suilenroc 3 days ago

      +William Felix Okay, thanks for the information
      Sounds interesting but also pretty gimmicky, to be honest i really want to see it once.
      I was trying to compare something I know with that phone, and I like the 3d on the DS.
      But your explanation makes me guess that the 3d on the 3ds is more useful compared to the red's Holographic Display.

    • William Felix
      William Felix 3 days ago

      No. The 3ds used a parrlax barrier display. It mixed 3 blue red images and directs them to you in one. kinda of like the stereoscopic 3d glasses from 3d tvs or 3d cinema. Though imo. They didnt look 3d to me and only make the images messed up and my eyes dizzy.
      This phone has a 4 cameras. 2 take side angles one on the left one on the right and the main one is in the center then the bottom one So you get differnet shots from different angles. With 4 different shots combined you splice the 4 images together and thus you get one you see. Well. Umm. If you can see it because its not always going 100% work. It all depends on the depth of what you are trying to capture. Also this is nothing new or innovative (no offense red or buyers)
      All this really is a picture that can be tilted at different angles to get a parralax effect. Really nothing new. I can program this into an app and make it free for everyone lol

    Zack from jerryrigeverything destroyed this phone! Those expensive materials are pretty much just stickers, what looks like speakers across the top and bottom, more stickers covering 2 small holes which weren't even centered. A camera not made by the company that makes the best cameras available. No modules available for a modular device. Say it with me; HYPE!

    What frustrated me was the secrecy marketing tactic where they never gave details on specs initially. It is launched and it turns out to be a POS. The only possible save is the camera module.... which is also secret.... but by then itll be a 3k phone/camera.....

    Phone building is riddled with patents for each component. If you want to put camera for your phone, you need to use stuff that patent holders have choke hold on. Hope the Red guys didn't learn this the hard way.

  • William Felix
    William Felix 6 days ago

    The problem is that its actually just stereoscopic 3d. When they mean 3d glasses free they mean the effect of the glasses is integrated in the screen thats what the display does. It mixes the red and blue and center images together to create that effect it also makes the image fuzzy. It really isnt 3d. Its basically just like the 3ds. Even though still. The 3ds imo did noy have the 3d effect. It was more of the dizzy effect. (It made me dizzy and screen was fuzzy)

    Watch JerryRigEverything's teardown of this phone. Fake "dual" speakers on the bottom, cheap plastic stickers made to look like metal, and a plastic LED flash module. That, combined with the fact that it's not even a Red camera on the back makes this phone absolutley over-priced. Should cost $499 at BEST.
