+K Josleyn I love it. Coming from iPhone and Samsung household. The best advice I can give is see it for yourself. Try Red Hydrogen One Users Facebook page. This isn't going to get an IP rating, it has to use upcoming modules including a supposed mirrorless 5k 100fps module next year.

After only 1 month of software updates, you may want to reconsider your review. I bought it. I found your review doesn't apply to this device anymore.

Is it allowed to call something "holographic" or "hoverboard" when it actually is something totally else?!

Guess I'll be keeping my HTC M10 for one more year, much to Verizon's dismay I'm sure. There is no 2018 phone that makes me want to give up my Dev M10. Maybe 2019!

it's not fair to compare the camera and screen of the evo 3d with 2018 technology. Although. with all the hype about the RED Hydrogen on would expect even better since the price range is a lot higher than the one in Evo's days when the tech was new and pricey.

I have a working LG OPTIMUS 3D from 2011 sitting in my draw, and great in it's day but I had a feeling that the Hydrogen screen would be a slightly improved version of the same concept, but over hyped to create mystique and interest. The 3D effect was good but lowered the resolution by half on the LG, and the same here, sadly they have missed a unique chance to excel. Thanks Verge for the info.

I HAVE THIS PHONE. The H4V is way cooler and works far far better than you make it sound. You are looking for click bate while not actually describing the phone accurately at all. The fact you made this review without even attempting to log in to holopixcs for more than a few seconds prooves you didn't give it an honest review. Holopix is amazing, the photos are stunning to look at. It's disappointing to see you take advantage of the opportunity to shoot down innovation.

Career professional photographers here; cameras such as Hasselblad, Leica, Red 8k, and even imax. There is not one single camera ever made with... An attached lens which is somehow made better by adding any other lens to it. The only exception, a type of special effect or edited image; such as a diffused image, star effect, etc... But adding anything greatly reduces the optics, and will do zero for the sensor. Cannot believe Red put their name or their logo onto this. Will a Toyota Prius perform like a Lamborghini if one places Toyo or Pirelli tires onto it

As i said in every post about this phone before the long awaited release. It will be a total flop. And guess what... It is... i think that a vidcamera company could have done more than a crappy camera phone. Its not about the SOC its not about the bezels its not about the price. It should have been the greatest camera phone in the market at any cost period. Huawei Samsung Apple even Xiaomi and LG have great camera offerings with third party HW. All i see here is a below the average device (at best) trying to use a well established name to sell smth expensive. All this crappy last decade screen tech and old SOC and mass produced camera sensors for what? Imagine the surpise at sony getting an email from RED saying "we need camera sensors for our phone" i believe they are still laughing with that. And all this for 1300$. I see people getting fired
