  • I was so excited to see Red's holographic photos and when I finally did I was really disappointed. The photos looked like those cheap 3D postcards you would pick up in a tourist shop.

  • I absolutely fucking HATE my red hydrogen it's a fucking piece of shit for what you pay fuck Verizon and fuck this phone. I loose Service it sometimes won't open regular apps. In fact fuck all the other phones too ,too expensive and too shitty. Technology makes us weak thumb slaves and is a waste of time read a fuckin book.

  • Well, they're on the right track by making it durable. Doesn't need a case. It has a heavy thick grip solid feel, very masculine. It's not elegant. I think this is a smartphone they plan on building on. Maybe that's why Red made it so durable. I personally am tired of smashed phones from a simple drop. Hardware is not changing much. So give be me a durable phone that will last throughout the ages. Snapdragons who cares?

  • So they basically cancelled the modules and these phones are now less than half the price on ebay. So glad I purchased one. (hangs head in shame)

  • Imagine spending millions on R&D on a dead gimmick, "3D". Who decided to greenlight this trash? It fails every single aspect of a good phone. Not even an OLED display.

  • “It’s hard to describe” it’s not that hard to explain. Its glasses-less 3D. If you’ve ever used a Nintendo 3DS, it’s exactly the same. If you’ve watched a 3d movie it’s pretty much the same thing just without glasses and not as much depth. It’s a cool gimmick that you only care about for about an hour and then you stop caring. They called it holographic because if they called it glasses-less 3d everybody would know exactly what it was and not care.

  • This is a great phone but I prefer the nubia magic 3 by Red. I think the rgb back case light and liquid cooling is a major selling point as is the 8k recording. Thoughts?

  • In any android device hardware and software don't ever feel like they belong together. It's like they don't even like each other. Software goes against hardware and hardware does the same behavior. I stopped paying so much money on android phones. It's actually I'm done with smartphone mania. I was really into this. I was buying and selling my phones. It was better as much as I can try different phones. I believe most of people feel the same with me. Smartphone mania is over. I hope.

  • Didnt realize this phone was so expensive. Glad I never got it. I have 1 3d device and that's all I need and it has over a couple of hundred 3d compatible games, this phone only about 20 apps total...... I paid $80 for my 3d device. Sorry to everyone who paid 1300 for a 3d device. Lol I'm sure everyone guessed but I'm talking about the 3ds. Also I dont like the modular thing. I loved Motorola, until modules, now I'm bouncing back and forth between iPhone and galaxy, unable to decide which one I like more, I'm settling on it depends on how I feel at the moment. Sometimes I want the iPhone, sometimes I want the galaxy.

  • For anyone wondering, the 3D affect looks like a slightly higher res 3DS. So it is useless. And scales down the resolution. And only works from exactly head-on. Remember, this screen was more important than having the camera sensor made by the actual camera company making the phone.

  • It was likely a corporate decision to make the camera on the phone lackluster. Likely because if they proved that they can attach a powerful camera to a phone, less people would actually buy their other, collectively expensive cameras + accessories, and just demand more camera phones.
