    I could NEVER deal with ads built-in with the software. Ads suck.

    The Palm phone or at least something of that design might actually be a good idea. I do like it. It keeps you from wearing down your battery capacity on your main phone and it seems like it would serve to kinda deter distractions from things like social media (which nearly everyone could take a back seat to). Kind of a small market I think, but the concept seems pretty interesting still.

      Unihertz does something like with their Atom line. Just don't expect software or security patches in a timely manner. Their stuff isn't bad for what they are but keep your expectations at an appropriate level.

    I love how you started with the exact phone I have. Purchase new off eBay for like a hundred bucks. It's pretty fun to own a phone this small that can do all the things that your big phone can do. It doesn't have to be linked to your phone. In fact if you just take your SIM card out of your main phone and put it into the palm it can be your only phone. However, it does have terrible battery life and you aren't going to use it to surf the web and watch IRglo on all day. And you're definitely not going to game with it cuz it gets very hot even when you're not charging it while using it. But it's still a good backup phone if your big phone breaks lol.

    I've been using Motorola for 4 years now, I'm genuinely impressed this phone still working without any problems. I'm not sure if they're making comeback or not but I'll say they're gaining loyal customers like me. Btw I'm using Motorola C plus.

    i would buy that wrap around display phone, funny thing about the "xray" phone is you can mod any camera to do that with IR filters.

      @Double A Wakeel You do realize that I DO NOT CONVEY my OWN opinion on this issue but rather I am trying to look into Arun's logic as to why he ranked it the way as he did. Your opinion is from the perspective of each company. His opinion is from the perspective of people outside of the respected companies. You guys can rank it in any way that you want, I don't care.

    • Double A Wakeel
      Double A Wakeel

      @rzl you do realize that yota was a new company, they didn't really have a hit net worth like Huawei, even if Huawei lost more, percentage wise Yota had a much worse impact. Imagine having 700B abs losing 1B$, it's alot but isn't too devastating to your company, now imagine having 1B$ and losing 100M$, you lost less money, but you suffered alot more from that loss.

      @kat He could rank it according to the number $$$ of losses suffered by those companies. Yota lost everything but that losses was to the tune of $126M, but Huawei is currently loss a lot more $$$.

    I bought a Kindle fire years ago with ads baked in to get it cheaper, and had it been a better small tablet, I probably would have used it way way more than I ended up using it. The main issue with it wasn't having ads on it, but was the fact that you couldn't even play music with the screen off

    The only thing on the 3D bandwagon that ever appealed to me, and succeeded, was the Nintendo 3DS. I didn't often use the 3D, but I did sometimes, and it mainly worked not because of the gimmick but because it had good games on it.

  • Caniggula

    The yota phone was dope. Id love to see that concept explored again

  • InferKnow

    I’m extremely against ads being integrated into software. This would only further encourage tracking of devices to serve ads and also to profiling and other uses. Companies that manage ads like Facebook or Google shouldn’t be as extensive as they are about it with the collection and analysis of data as it removes the trust which is something the Metaverse will see will negatively affect their performance.

  • Lyle Rodericks
    Lyle Rodericks

    Completely agree with you on Xiaomis ads. It's not fair that we pay for a device and get constantly bombarded with ads anyway. It is possible to turn some of them off nowadays but it's still an opt out feature instead of opt-in which I feel is very violating 😤

    Surely making a phone that makes you bankrupt is a 10/10 fail

  • Dodo Lord
    Dodo Lord

    with the palm phone i still think there is a very good use for it, if they made it slightly better and capable of doing more of the stuff modern phones can do it would have a decent audience, as a phone repairer we get a lot of people not just old coming into the store asking for iphone 5, 6, 7, and 8's and older samsung phones as well, still looking for repairs for the devices, and most of the time their reason for not upgrading is because they liked it when phones used to be smaller and the newer ones are too big. so i think there is a demographic for the palm phone or whatever the first one was called. if they just made more improvements and different versions targeted towards people looking for a smaller fully functioning modern phone, they might have a hit on their hands.

  • n0

    I had the HTC Evo 3D. Really insane phone at the time. I still have a bunch on 3d pics I took with it. The stereoscopic effect was super trippy to see in person. With VR becoming a thing and multiple camera phones becoming the standard it would be cool to see some ability to at least shoot 3d and be able to see it in VR. I'd almost like to see this one have another run once VR becomes more widely adopted.

    • MrRedstone

      Well, now with the Oculus Quest, VR is not only more easily available but also portable and affordable.

      I had an Evo 3D too, and my best friend had the Optimus 3D. I don't understand why it wasn't more popular - 3D was rad, and it was still a great phone.

    • Awii

      @cuddlefish101 bruh moment

    • BluWarta92

      I have mine still... Not in use though. It was mental phone, my first smartphone. Blooming time of "What the fuck is HTC?!". Everybody was all up for either Samsung, Nokia or Apple. Nokia was just about to plunge. Evo 3D was super fun and innovative phone. HTC really stepped ahead of competition by 10 years. They lost it all because innovators don't make money. Innovators innovate and imitators roll the cash.

    If you wanted something "distraction free" (as that palm phone bills itself) you'd just get a feature phone, preferably one that has email, but no browser or built-in games.

  • Footsoljier

    the wrap around phone would break so easily, also what kind of screen protector would you have?

  • tim white

    I actually really liked the HTC phones back in 2012/2013. As for the phone that has x-ray vision they had to kill because it could see through clothes: judgement aside, isn't that the reason people want x-ray vision?

    The concept of baking ads into a UI honestly makes me sick to my stomach at this point, knowing that literally every company would be hungry to do that if we let it slide even once. Ew.

    • Juan Huertas
      Juan Huertas

      And they´re still there if not at the same quantity. I have a Poco X3 gt and I see ads in the built in file manager. You can deactivate it in the options, but having this crap turned on out of the box is infuriating

    • MrRedstone

      @LilyoftheLake I think you can also pay to disable the ads, so you can afford to buy it for cheap and also pay the rest when you're able to.

    • LilyoftheLake

      Idk if this has already been mentioned or not but we have this at least in the USA. It's called the Amazon Fire tablet. However you do get a 8-10 inch, 1080p display, with 8-16 GB (room to expand,) it does have ads on the lock screen and at the top of each tab on the home screen like you'd see on a modern Xbox or PlayStation. Though, the starting cost for one is $50 USD so the ads offset the loss on the sale price. I mean, that does make a tablet affordable for people who otherwise couldn't buy one. Now, if there's a phone/tablet with the baked in ads and it's sold at full price... that's disgusting and predatory. The ads ate supposed to be there to make the product cheaper to buy, not to just make more money for the company.

    • MrRedstone

      *Facebook has entered the chat* Yeah, we're not letting this slide.

    • Verena Shadowy
      Verena Shadowy

      Agreed. I'm a Xiaomi user since 2015 and I was quite surprised when I bought my note 7 in 2019 and later on it got filled with ads. ESPECIALLY when I was listening to music. At first I thought I had some virus or something. I guess it's just the chinese way, they are obsessed with putting ads to anywhere. Luckily you are able to turn it all off, except for the app downloading part.

  • Yannick Ha'ra
    Yannick Ha'ra

    honestly, when I first got my Xiaomi I was a bit shocked about the amount of ads. but once they were turned off, there are barely any day-to-day. I see more ads browsing IRglo in one sitting than I do from miui in a month. for a $250 phone with pretty good specs, I'll watch a couple of ads

    @12:45 I myself had an HTC phone, it was the HTC Desire 626 and with that I came up with the name High Tech Monkeys, as this was my first phone from this brand moving from ZTE due to an issue, however, HTC had left a bad taste in my mouth because it was plagued with bugs beyond my comprehension and worse than the ZTE N800 but looked better on paper due to the specs of what I needed at the time. The ZTE N800 was better as some of the bugs in that phone at the time could be mitigated with a root kit in which to gain admin permissions to tweak some of the settings of the kernel thus fixing it. I didnt want to waste my time with the HTC phone in the same manor in finding a root kit to do the same as there were none due to the method I would have had to go to do root it and when a root kit finally came out I was on a new phone.


    UPDATE ON THE HUAWEI BAN: It’s also been banned in all of Canada’s 5G networks last week. I think its the end for them

    I think Motorola shifted its focus to the business end of things, like two way radios, modems, barcode scanners, etc. I think that their shortcomings with the consumer end were either intentional or they just didn't care enough.

    Apple started to feel threaten by Huawei and for that reason cut them off google suport. That was a low move from Apple. Apple is the most ruthless company ever created

  • GrimoireOfTheSage

    I think this one might be the saddest of the Smartphone Fails videos. Both the Beam and the Yotaphone are things I really found neat. Mi Mix Alpha is also interesting, though I am less sure what I would use it for other than to be able the change the look of my phone on the fly(that is still kinda cool though, wallpapers for the back of your phone). I also enjoy unique camera features like the Oneplus example. Not enough to tempt me to buy such a phone, but it brings a smile to my face never the less.
