RED Hydrogen One Unboxing – Worth $1300?

by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

What's the guy's a peon super sad TV and went back in the studio finally there's a black box here which has the brand-new red hydrogen one I've already made a video about the red hydrogen one but that was about my pre-order experience you guys may have already seen it it was a few months ago I'll link it at the cards if you haven't seen it already but in a nutshell it was me ranting about sonic cancel the red hydrogen one order I'm not really getting anywhere however following that video somebody from red did get in touch with me personally to apologize and they have got their customer service in order

Following that video so it was a positive me making that video was not to trash the company it was to help customers like myself and from what I've heard from some friends as well they managed to also successfully get their pre-orders cancelled and red asked me if I'd still like to check it out so I was like sure I'll check it out I give my honest opinions here on the channel and here in it so let's get it unbox and we'll see first up we do have a little note I'm not sure if this is only for the reviewer edition but it basically says that inside the box there is a 128

Gigabyte micro SD card and that is because the red hydrogen one does have expandable storage and then we've also got this kind of like a badge which you can stick on somewhere and this says red media machine I believe this is what you actually have on red cameras so that's quite a nice touch I can put that somewhere let's get to the main device itself got a nice texture on this box on there is the red media machine logo here once again it's a 3d kind of logo gives a bit of a terminator vibe I do like that and here is the device Wow okay this is this is so cold because it's

Just all metal it's got a nice sort of cold touch to it we'll leave that to the side for just a second it's also pretty heavy and here's everything we get inside the box are pretty standard we've got some paperwork there's a power brick which is on the same theme as the red hydrogen one we've got these grips here at the side and there is a USB type-c two USB type-c cable and here is the device I have to say it's definitely quite big you can feel it in the hand it's just bringing in the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 here for a size comparison you can see

That it's taller and it's also wider compared to the note 9 and quite a bit thicker actually we'll go ahead and get rid of all of the plastic on the back and there is also a screen protector which has the text hydrogen on it so let's get rid of that too there we go now it definitely doesn't feel like any other smartphone that I've tried before very very hefty let's go ahead and power this on before we take a look around red powered by Android it does have Android version 8.1 on here we've got the 3d effects straight away here on the animation screen

Not exactly holographic but it does have some depth to it I don't think you're gonna be able to see this on camera now there is definitely a 3d effect going on here but you need to be kind of viewing it directly as soon as I move the phone a little bit this way then you know I lose that 3d effect in the same way if I move it left to right I lose that 3d effect okay I've set this up and I've been having a look at some 3d content and taking some images and things and honestly speaking my initial impressions are a little bit underwhelming the 3d effect is

Definitely there but as soon as you switch to this really effect things go a little bit fuzzy because that 3d filter is applied and colors also go a little off so anything that's white kind of has a yellow tint to it now when you've got the 3d effect turned off then this can be used as a regular 2d display and it's got a quad HD plus resolution it's 5.7 inches and although it's pretty sharp it's not bright when you hold it off angle then it does look pretty dim of course we do have quite large bezels this device is not intended to be bezel-less or anything like that because

It is a 3d display I'm taking a look around the device so the top and bottom bezels do have stereo speakers and then we've got do front-facing cameras so these are both 8 megapixels and the reason we've got two is to give you a 3d effect I've taken a few images with this and once again a little bit underwhelming on the left and right hand side we've got these grips which kind of really give it an industrial feel like we've got with the red cameras there are individual volume buttons on the left hand side on the right hand side there's a power button which also

Doubles as a fingerprint scanner which seems to work ok there is also a dedicated shutter button here and if you press and hold that that is going to launch the camera and you can also use it to take pictures at the bottom is a USB type-c input I believe these are two mics here as well on at the top there is a 3.5 mm jack with a micro SD and SIM card slot now moving over to the back we once again have that industrial design similar to some red cameras and if you are a fan of red products then I think you will like this there is a dual rear facing camera set up both of these are

Travelling pixels we've got 2 because of that 3d effect like we've got the front I'm taking a few images on this and regular camera seems pretty standard when we do have that 3d effect yes you can't view 3d content here on the phone but same things which I was mentioning earlier things are not as sharp and the colors are also a little bit off in my opinion and here at the bottom we've got some connectors and these are gonna be used for modular elements of the red hydrogen-1 now these are not available as yet they're supposed to be coming in 2019 so I can't really comment on those

But the hope is that you're gonna be able to attach a red sensor onto this and then maybe some lenses to really get some red quality images and videos now internally this has had the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and although that's a great processor that is last year's processor of course this year we've got these Snapdragon 805 and soon we're gonna be hearing about these Snapdragon 805 so that's definitely something to bear in mind there's six agree bytes of RAM with 128 gigabytes of base storage and it has a massive 4500 mAh battery which I have heard is very

Very good right so what are my honest opinions about this device I think it's a nice attempt from read I do like seeing innovation in the smartphone area and this is definitely something very different and I don't want to go too hard on red because it is their first smartphone however I cannot recommend you go out and buy this yes the 3d effect is definitely then it might be something that you're into but as a smartphone it has last year's internals we really don't know nothing solid about the modularity 2019 is when it's supposed to come but this device was

Supposed to come in quarter one of 2018 it came out in quota fall of 2018 so when are we gonna have actual modules that we can add on to this I'm not too sure personally and my advice would be is that if you're interested in this phone maybe wait for the red hydrogen to maybe see what these modules are and how they function and how well they function and if those modules do perform really well and give you maybe some red camera quality on a smartphone then it might be something that you want to look into and the focus of this phone will be those modules not the smartphone itself that's

What I think anyway what do you guys think of the red hydrogen one definitely let me know in the comments below I hope you enjoyed this video and found it useful if you did then do hit that thumbs up button for me and if you haven't already then be sure to subscribe and twitch or notifications there's lots more content coming up on here thanks for watching this app on super safe TV and I'll see you next time
