  • Is it like the 3ds?

  • Sounds like my Nintendo 3ds

  • Good And Honest Review, Thank you 👍

  • I guess they -never- sometimes miss, huh

  • yeh wont be buying this

  • Dude... it's straight up butt ugly. Any other description of it's art style is wrong.

  • Cool video but.. what's the damn intro song called?!

  • I honestly love the look, I like the look more than my s9+ and others

  • Oh i see 3D

  • Built for the military Soldier:oh shit my phone got shot Other soldier:don't forget that phones a tank Soldier:oh thank god

  • Ummm... excuse me, you just knocked off the nintendo 3ds it can take 3d photo and video, and literally play 100s of games in 3d If only the 3ds dual cameras weren’t 0.3 (not a typo) megapixels...

  • OMG you all paying these dudes toys

  • I Had this on my HTC EVO 3D 4G......🧓

  • i love you so much for making your videos the ratio you do they work perfect on my s9+ your fuckin awesome bro, n have the best advice on tech

  • I had it for a month , the 3d gets old really quick , i hardly used this. Sold it bougth me a s9+

    • Are there any movies, shows you can watch with it in 3d?

  • You make a great video in general, I appreciate watching them. Smart, straight forward, unbiased, and my source of frustration with other video makers...no excessive cuts and edits.

  • 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.

  • 12:04 i guess they never miss huh

  • They probably just took an off the shelf phone and tried to pass it off as a red camera in a phone.

  • 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.

  • 11:55 ouuuuh... yikes!

  • 6:31 Hit or miss I guess they never miss.. HUH?

  • Anybody remember HTC 3D from 7/8 years ago?

  • but is the battery removable???

  • 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.

  • When i read red hydro chydro shit and that it is 1300 dollars i thought they finally made a camera that can show clothed girls naked.

  • You watch monsters vs aliens

  • what is the name of song at start the video???

  • it's like the old htc and lg 3d phones

  • Ясно, на моей 3дс круче

  • 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? ;)

  • really. did you ever expect by the red team idiots to be any good? it smelled like a sea rat from second one.

  • 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.

  • from where did u get that mkbhd light made ? i really need for my brand..

  • Yo

  • Why the hell would one of the most respected and best high end camera makers make a phone where ppl are gonna expect GREAT picture quality and change an extreme amount and then stick an off the shelf sensor in it? Doesnt make any since.

  • 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.

  • Stay woke people lol

  • Remember the htc evo 3D

  • Waste of money.

  • Marques, Since this review has your thoughts on this phone changed? I read another review that said these negative reviews were before the updates fixed a lot of the problems.

  • people say the red hydrogen is the 2nd phone that can display 3D photo but its not.the 2nd phone that can display 3D photo is a chinese phone called DingDing.i use to own that phone but i forgot the name but its really.....nice....

  • 12:04 I guess they never miss huh?

  • This phone is the ultimate click bate, it's not a hydrogen phone..

  • Really impressed with this review. Hit all my questions and MB convey's an open honesty which i find appealing af. 10/10

  • So it's a better version of a three ds that can make calls lol

  • Is this what you wanted

  • Hey Jim, do not jump without putting your jump shoes on beforehand. Even though it is kinda important Marketing isn't just hot air.

  • 6:31

  • I guess they never miss, huh?

  • The holographic thing looks like the one from the Nintendo 3DS

  • OMFG, THE HUGE AF BEZELS

  • Is this what you wanted?

  • That's an ugly-ass phone.

  • Would if red partnered with red to make a product red hydrogen one phone wouldn’t that be funny but it would never happen

  • Mark-ASS Brown Lee. (You can thank Will Smiff)

  • Everything it has can be found in a $250 Chinese phone, even better in many of those phones today.

  • the worst phone I bought in my life.

  • I can't find the JJ interview you mentioned. Did you post it?

  • who’s watching on a red hydrogen one? *yeah... no*

  • This phone is so innovative. The lenticular sample photos you shared are exciting. They've certainly created an atmosphere. I'm buying this tomorrow!!!

  • There's a weird thing. "Holographic technology" in RED Hydrogen just a realization of Nintendo's 3D on display in 3DS. Actually, this can't cost so many as hydrogen. And camera from ,maybe, sony? Maybe it's the WORST smartphone of the year(

  • 12:04 I guess they never miss huh?

  • Red had the chance to go for the best camera on the mobile market and went for dudes who keep phones on a belt strap and just by the latest technology regardless of quality.

  • Что этот нигер себе позволяет?(с) :)

  • 3DS, the *phone*.

  • so its hit or miss in this way?

  • So the 3D thing is similar to the 3DS

  • That is the most ugliest phone I’ve ever seen... ewwh.

  • is this 3d effect like on the nintendo 3ds ?

  • MKBHD and Unbox Therapy are the best tech channels. Period.

  • whats the intro music?

  • So its like the Ninetndo 3DS, which is tbh, really old by now. In my opinion a nice feature, but kinda useless

  • MKBHD, PLEASE find Sharp sh007 and make a comparison of both of those phones!!!

  • Sharp sh 007 allows you to watch 3D on it's screeen without glasses and runs full android as wel. Red phone- poop bubble!

  • Nice Tesla Surfboard in the background.

  • Basically 3DS technology in a phone.

  • I never subscribed to him but it made me sub this is major trash

  • It's the current year and people still pushing the 3d gimmick.

  • Markass Brownie

  • I liked the look of the phone at least. I'm sick of Samsung curved edges. If I can't put the Otterbox defender case on it I don't want it so looking at other phones.

  • This guy really knows his stuff. I find myself constantly.impressed by his reviews.

  • that looks like a nextbit robin on steroids

  • im 14 and i got this for Christmas from my mom and im really mad because i feel like my mom got scammed and i didnt really need this video to see that this thing is kinda shit, i just needed a way to explain that to my mom without sounding ungrateful, so thank you for the vid bro.

  • Doggie

  • Markass

  • 6:31 I am switching video... I am stuck...

  • But can it run Crisis?

  • i just bought one and i notice the 4 view pic disappear and you have to take another 4 view pic to even see your old ones also the 4 view does not seem to work on my front facing camera any tips

  • A new 3ds very cool

  • was i the only one who thought there was gonna be holographic things coming from the back??? surely not

  • I guess they never miss huh

  • Is this what you wanted?

  • Hal...... Is that you.

  • 12:04 I guess, they never miss, HUH?

  • 10:50 a red hydrogen. GG Mark-ass, GG.

  • So its a nintendo 3ds screen more or less...

  • so its an overpriced paperweight, and here i was just using a mug to hold my paper down

  • This is what I had on my EVO 3D 8 years ago!

  • What was RED thinking? No one cares about a 3D screen. What we expected from a RED phone is RED camera technology. Give us a decent OLED display and a kickass camera on the phone no frills. Thats all we asked for

    • Rico Andrade nah just put apple logo and every one is going to love it and say how innovating the 3D screen is lol
