The Most Unique Android Phone? (Smartisan T1)

by birtanpublished on May 2, 2021

What's up everybody this is Danny and I get to look at a ton of Android phones every month from flagships to budget phones to mid Ranger's and there's no doubt that some of the most innovative and most interesting phones are coming from China I have looked at a ton here on the channel but I want to show you what I think is the most interesting and most detailed Android experience I've yet to see from a manufacturer so I want to introduce you to the smartest and t-1 smartphone ok before you can say man here's just another cheap Chinese phone the attention to detail and the overall experience

Will make you think otherwise unboxing the t1 will show you exactly how thought-out this experience was meant to be with the accessories purposely placed in a calculated manner the t1 comes in two colors and I have both here but I'm really digging this black one the materials used here are pretty unique the frame is made of a combo of fiberglass stainless steel and reinforced polycarbonate resin to give it a solid construction feel and the phone feels premium and weighty in the hand the overall design is clean but I know most of you are out there

Thinking this looks very similar to an iPhone 4 or 4s in design but I don't necessarily think that this is a bad thing for arguably in my opinion the iPhone 4 was one of the best design iPhones ever in fact the t11 the if' design gold award over the iPhone 6 in 2015 there is glass on the front and the back and the speakers are placed on the bottom and even down to the removable back on the t1 to get to the SIM card it will remind you of the iPhone it comes off with a few screws and even down to the tool provided and the extra screws included the level of thoughtfulness is

Insane even the USB cord has a convex and a concave side to let you know exactly which side goes up it's not USBC however but clever anyways and design even down to where the proximity and ambient light sensors are stored the construction is very well thought-out the button layout is where you start to see the unique approach of the smartest and T one the power button is rounded at the top to match the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack and on both sides you see what looks like volume rockers instead of individual switches and these are

Customizable depending on whether you are right-handed or left-handed now this makes total sense for most designs are made for one experience where this one has the user in mind to give the most comfortable experience when using your smartphone you can change the volume of course toggle the screen brightness and even make quick launch gestures like opening the camera and taking a screenshot by pressing them both at the same time there are three physical buttons on the bottom with a very small LED light built into the middle home button and the two side buttons are

Customizable between the back multitasking or grid view so let's go ahead and get the specs out of the way the t1 features a 5-inch 1080p JDI IPS display with a Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor 2 gigabytes of RAM and of course there's NFC Bluetooth 4.0 LTE 802 11 AC Wi-Fi and much more this doesn't seem that impressive today but this is pretty impressive knowing that this phone is about a year old and the performance is really snappy as well and really fluid and even though this is not the highest spec phone it performs really well a lot of that

Though I think has to do with the simplified software here on the t1 what you see is a very basic large grid-based launcher like you would maybe see on an easy mode on some other devices and some of you might find it easier to navigate due to its clean and simple interface if you're like me though you can always get back to the traditional Android experience with the stock launcher the interface and menus look like an older version of iOS and apples influence is evident here for sure for I think an X Apple engineer helped in the process and development of the t1 the good thing is

The navigations of the settings are not cluttered and not overwhelming like on some other Android devices and things are exactly where they should be the most interesting and important aspect of the software in my opinion are probably the level of user experience customization even down to the OCD settings where you can hide icon labels gadgets and wipe to clear icon notification patches there are a few other things notable on the smartest nt1 as well on the back there is a 13 megapixel camera which is a sony i MX 214 sensor with the clean and easy

Camera interface and the night mode here is probably the most interesting it takes multiple pictures and with some software processing magic it helps to reduce noise also for audio lovers out there this phone has a Texas Instruments opa 2604 chip that helps audio to sound fuller and bring back the sound of compressed music there's a lot more features that I could go over on the smartisan t1 but it's not scheduled to be released here in the US so why do I find this product interesting is because either this phone or something similar to this just pass through the FCC so I

Know they have something up their sleeves and this could possibly be launched here in the US and worldwide there are even rumors of maybe a smarter Santee too coming with the upcoming snapdragon 820 processor so you never know where you might see one of their products in the future I always welcome unique Android phones that elevate the user experience and bring something different to the game and that's the beauty of Android it's a platform where the vision of the individual manufacturer can come to fruition and influence the way we see and use smart

Phones today when the t2 comes out I can't wait to check it out because I like some of the things that smartisan is doing alright guys so I hope you enjoyed this video and if you did make sure you slap that like button real quick and make sure you subscribe to the channel if you haven't already for more content like this and I will see you guys in the next video
