Hey Linus can you compare Windows and Ubuntu OS on same hardware because i think windows 10 is sucking or wasting too much of my budget PC's processing power on useless background processes like Cortana .. 😡

Reminded me of my old HTC Evo 3D which I had like 5 years ago? The 3D screen was exactly as linus said a gimmick ... You show it to you friends, they play with it for 5 minutes and then move on, but the phone is left in your pocket afterwards, not theirs :P Also you can't share any of 3D photos, because 3D displays are not a standard (THANK GOD!!!). So you are left alone in your own small world with your 3D gimmick, congrats ...

Note to ALL tech youtubers: Stop saying that phones are heavy. Period. (of course one particular model will weigh more than another, but phones are just NOT heavy. I'd gladly use a "heavy" phone with a 10,000 mA battery)

I do like that it has a rugged chassis and headphone jack. Those 2 and a bigger battery seem to be missing from the whole smartphone market for some reason. I don't need some fancy gestures. I can live without fingerprint scanning and face recognition. I don't really need good speakers on a phone, they're always going to be far worse than even cheap headphones anyway. I don't need NFC or the absolute fastest this or that. I CERTAINLY don't need it to be thinner, or even as thin as they currently are. Can someone PLEASE just make a phone with: Good OLED screen, durable chassis so I don't need a case, and a high capacity battery? Good camera is a plus. Headphone jack, required. The internals can be from up to 2 years ago for all I care. The top of the line stuff isn't going to make a big enough difference for me to want to compromise on the things I listed. They're far more important in daily use. Do they not realize that most people use a case anyway, so they can just make the phone up top as big as a phone with a case so that there's room for high durability and more battery, and then I don't need a case, so the size doesn't even affect anyone that would use a case.

here is the thing, a good phone isn't a good phone for you. Here is the truth, i am yet to see Linus tech tips review "meaning full" content about mobile phones. There is a ton of good phones out in the wild but because Linus tech tips is only interested in "supper expensive" there is no point in this review or any other. How many of you sport a $50 US phone or even a $100 US phone. These phones get USED a lot by many many people. Millions actually. What do we see. Just another YouTube killing innovation. Just because it is a revisited/old or "whatever" tech now doesn't mean it is bad. the concept remains the factor. Again i bet you that someone can send you a bar of gold and you will still manage do degrade it somehow. YouTubes like these reviews KILLS innovation to the point that we are just getting "more of the same" that is not the world i want to live in. i use a Samsung J1 and it works just fine. It is not the biggest best at anything or anything like that. I can replace the battery i can make calls send emails and skype for hours at a time with it. IT WORKS. that is the point. No wonder YouTube is on its last legs... You have all the equipment in the world to make good content and what do we get? Advertisement with product review more advertisement... nah... i would rather watch grass grow.

This is a hit piece not a review. It feels like it started with a conclusion. Anyone curious about this device should go spend 10 minutes with one at any location that carries it. It is a massive threat to the two companies that dominate the market with over priced and incrementally improved devices that have been officially busted for deliberately making their own devices fail in some aspects right around when new models come out. You want a phone that cannot hold a charge all day after a year cause Apple makes that happen? You know where to get one. You want a phone made of slippery and fragile material so that the first time you put it on the bed and sit down to tie your shoe it slides off and breaks for a $700.00 screen repair? You know where to get that as well. This device is crazy good. Even in the little details like it doesn't turn the screen on by itself after you turn it off so that you accidentally hang up on your colleagues because your thumb is on the hang up button. The 3D aspect, well tons of people cover that. But it is the future. Film some amateur sports from the field with it and watch it later and tell me you ever want to watch sports any other way after that. The RH1 is the first real innovation since Apple and Samsung decided to make sure the market was theirs and theirs alone. And for those that want a vanilla phone but doesn't steal your data, or become artificially obsolete, get a Sony Xperia or a Pixel 3.

Linus you are not qualified to review cameras or photography, your claim that flatter JPGs are worse for postprocessing is just the opposite of the truth. I've seen other wrong conclusions by you in other videos when it comes to photography and phone cameras. at least make that asian guy with cameras review your scripts..

I'd say it's a pretty cool phone. But Red is is going to (and did) have a snowball's chance in hell of competing with the top Google, Apple and Samsung phones. Those three companies have the market down to an exact science, and have the experience and resources to produce just about anything they want. Red is playing catchup. They should not have tried to directly challenge the titans of the market on their first go. Although. The build quality totally wins lol

There should be no reason to attempt some sort of "3D sound" on your speakers or headphones. Now I'm not a audiophile or a expert from Sennheiser, but I still had the same reaction as Linus when I heard that. More details: Headphones are actually standardised and completely built around being 3D in the first place. They already aim to sound as accurate to the sound of a good set of speakers would sound in a good room, especially studio headphones. Any software attempt to make your audio sound "more realistic" will just undermine this and make it sound even more garbage, and I would recommend that you turn that shit off as soon as you pick up that phone. If the music sounds shit, it's either your headphone/earphone is shit or the music itself is shit. The job of your device is just to replay that music file as it is. We don't need another layer of shittiness.
