  • Where is the interview with Jim from RED?

  • sad. do they hate you yet lol

  • red hydrogen ̶b̶r̶i̶c̶k̶ ̶ phone

  • Any IP rating yet?

  • Excellent review. Thank you!

  • Dude thanks for the truth. Subscribed and like

  • He said it... HIT OR MISS

  • I love DEADMAU5

  • Why does RED not just release the entire promise at once up front? How is it that they wait sooooooo long. Get better engineers!

  • GOOD....

  • Michael Bay phone , looks good no substance

  • You can put lipstick on a pig , still a pig

  • Trash is trash

  • Lololololololoool y’all fell for it

  • THANOS PHONE

  • Htc evo did this already no new tech here this is just recycled tech

  • TBH it looks dope

  • 5:05 - get the f outa my view -ok

  • Shit,where is hologram!????? Where!!!?????

    • this """"""holographic tecnology"""" is nothing more than a slightly improved version of a old nintendo 3ds tecnology seeing even in a couple of 3d smartphoned 4 or 5 years ago.

  • A way better review than Unbox Therapy.

  • You killed this phone, Red hates you 😋

  • Years ago there was a Motorola phone I believe that had this feature of 3D effect and looked just ugly

    • Wasn't HTC the one who came up with the 3d phone?

  • So, is this a Nintendo 3DS XL with cellular capabilities?

  • Carbon fiber stickers and fake dual speaker sticker at the bottom, not what one would expect on a $1300 phone.

  • Excellent review...thank you

  • Never even heard of the phone or RED... what is it? I saw RED and just assumed it was Linux based and not Android

  • You just dropped a "hold that thought" from 3 blind men and an elephant. Love that guy's videos.

  • Need the camera lens and sensor

  • So basically it’s the better version of the HTC EVO 3D

  • 6:31 i guess they never miss huh

  • The HTC Evo3D had that pretty much years ago I'm glad i didn't purchase this device. Thanks for the great review.

  • @Marques Brownlee What's the tune you used for your opening

  • im sticking to google pixel.

  • So its a 3DS, but a phone?

  • $1300 paperweight.

  • 2:08 heh heh, stupid dog.

  • I feel like i read the photo and video capabilities of this phone would be better than any dlsr on the market at the time..?

  • Your comment was the right one. It is an overpriced flop with specs that are going to be left behind in just one year. The modules are not going to save this phone. It was DOA.

  • What happens when nobody in a company can tell management the truth without getting fired. Like Trump’s staff: just nod your head and agree with the CEO if you want to make rent this month. I’m betting the RED product development process involves much “awesome!” responses from the drone bees whenever Jarred or Jim say something. Anything. Don’t hold your breath on the Modules - unless they sell 1M of these beauties, there’s no business case in throwing more money at the project. My guess is that they’ll sell 20K of these total, with 1/2 of that being sold to YT reviewers to crap on. This is a Jim Jannard vanity project. Period.

  • For Marques to not rave about a RED product is prob not a good thing for this phone. He’s super tight with RED via business and gear he owns. Guess sometimes you gotta keep it real to keep any credibility. See Devin Supertramp’s recent Canon EOS R to see the downside on sucking too hard on the Corporate tit. That boy got greedy

  • DEMBELE

  • How can you tell if a camera is good?

  • I bought уestеrdаy in а verу goоd prісe hеrе: *vdigital. info*

  • Loved joes reaction to it, “this is strrraaange”😂

  • It is an updated HTC EVO 3d

  • 6:31 I guess they never miss, huh?

  • what about using this for cinematography? You should've shot a video short.

  • 3:35 funny that in this phone he uses the "at this price point it should have better everything", but when it comes to XR, "nah, that's ok to not have at least fullhd screen... you don't even see the difference"

  • Doesn't the Alcatel 4S sound better? Review to ROG from Asus. That's a gaming phone and has kick ass front facing stereo speakers.

  • Я тут русский

  • I like that it's not another sleek glass of wine phone. I for one am a working man, my phone rides shot gun in a truck, and is used as a tool. The iPhone is a wimp, it's a phone built to break.

  • @marquesbrowlee you are a tech blogger but did you ever created/invented anytjing?

  • If it were $649.99 how would you feel

  • I was reading lots of articles about this phone and was truly exited .I was truly dissapointed when the reviews came in 😔

  • Yo the 3ds came out 7 years ago.

  • Do I need to pay 1k for the charger or 2k to turn it on?

  • 5:31, nononono 😂

  • this phone is the bomb.

  • Hanging out for 2028 when I can get one of these off of ebay cheap as a novelty like the matrix phone.

  • 12:04 I guess you never miss, huh...

  • The camera looks pretty dang good to me

  • Anyone know the name of he opening song?

  • I love the fact that you were brutally honest in this video 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • I could have sworn you reviewed a phone like this a few years ago.

  • Yeah but what about The 3DS?!?!?

  • The Homer Mobile... 😂

  • 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.

  • 6:33 I guess they never miss. Huh?

  • Red Dead?

  • ill keep my NOTE 9

  • 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.

  • Giant Forehead! JacksFilms?

  • RED Hydrogen One 20% Off here: *vdіgіtаl. іnfо*

  • pretty cool interview with roe jogan

  • Thanks! Very helpful.

  • Who else thought this was the most boring mkbhd video?

  • 6:31 I guess they never miss, huh?

  • The music name at the intro please

  • So glad I forgot to put my preorder though. Will take a look at it in a few years

  • I can tell from video the 3d display but you're right the display is not very good.

  • Phone was a flat out lie in my opinion

  • Very glad I watched this! Thanks! Looks like I'm sticking with the 3XL for now, then hide and watch.

  • At least it has a headphone jack..

  • UGLY PHONE AND REALLY BAD LOW LIGHT PERFORMER

  • Thats alot of hot garbage for $1300!!!

  • I saw this phone at the store today. My dad didn't know what RED was and the guy there showed us an MKBHD video. Oh the irony...

  • Garbage phone

  • 12:20

  • 6:31 I guess they never miss huh

  • Too gimmicky for my taste. No thanks. Great review though.

  • Did anyone notice in 5:04 the dude in the background notices he is filming and moves out of the way

  • The only thing that can save this phone is an awesome camera attachment. They better hurry, I want to see it

  • junk

    • 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..

  • I am subing to everyone how subs to me antil next week

  • what an ugly phone ever made in history!!

  • I was only Interested in the phone because of the red camera. Lame

  • How can anyone take this garbage seriously after finding out that the "metal", and "carbon fibre" are cheap stickers. The "huge speakers" are also cheap stickers. A joke!

  • Please stop confusing mAh and mWh but otherwise great video as always!!

  • On top of that, its really ugly
