i remember when having a blackberry was considered cool
@TheScaryNuggetMan You're young
@Wise Ferret I wasn’t even alive for that XD
Those were the days
i remember when people tried to punch me because i had a samsung (they were an apple fanboy)
My dad used to have a blackberry but it doesn't work anymore
10:05 imagine going to the store ONLY TO BUY THINGS ONLINE
That's kind of like the experience of going into your local council these days. They either point you to a computer kiosk screen or send you away and tell you to pay your bill or submit your proposals online at home.
Maybe just to see if you can find a cheaper option on Amazon, could be an ok idea
Lol thats telsa showtooms in a nutshell
I **STILL** want that energizer phone. Its exactly the kind of thing someone who does a lot of backpacking or spends days at a time in the wilderness
At this phone you have magnetic powerbanks you can attach to your phone, you could easily attach one to yours and it wouldn't be as big and still last you days/weeks.
@Vandal G ive got my music my gameboy games and movies
You'd have no internet or signal to speak with...so now you're carrying a gameboy brick size paperweight. Genius.
@FennecTECH Then how will you carry the energizer phone? A power bank would take up the same amount of space as the phone.
I literally just bought the Oukitel WP18 (12500mAh battery) as a second phone just because of that
The Blackberry Z10 was actually an amazing phone. Besides the lack of apps (which was largely remedied by sideloading Android apps), the multitasking, gesture controls, and keyboard were way ahead of their time. I was devastated when mine died suddenly and wouldn't reboot. RIP BB Z10 (2013-2015).
Yesss the Z10, Q10 and BB OS 10 WERE WAY AHEAD OF ITS TIME. By far the most under appreciated piece of tech.
I LOVED the G5. It felt so cool swapping batteries, like reloading your phone. But, in hindsight it was awful. I had to keep an extra battery with me and charging for my job because my phone would be dead by noon with light usage. Also I couldn't keep a case on it lol.
It also eventually would swell batteries as the capacitors rubbed from the play. I saw a few of these phones on displays with bubbled appearances.
Same, absolutely loved the LG G5, quick swapping a battery always felt like doing a good tactical reload on a handgun. That part made up for the not so great battery life
Number one most painful smartphone fail: *Dropping a smartphone on your lip when you’re laying on the bed*
Very painful man...
I’ve rewatched these tech fail videos more times than I’d want to admit. I love failure.
I was very excited about the Essential phone and very close to getting one. It's honestly too bad that the execution didn't match the motivation because with the proper momentum, their ideas could have really gone somewhere
This series is highly addictive 👍 Make more of them oftenly
Yeah, the LG G5 was ill conceived from the start. I was such a LG fan years ago, having owned the G2, G3, V10, and G6, (we won't talk about my ill advised Stylo experience) and being super disappointed with the last couple. My favorite of that group was the G3 by far. I hate that they decided to jump out of the smartphone game.
Only LG phone I ever had was the LG Cookie and my god it was awful 😂 only 14 year old me could have possibly thought it was worth the money
Back in the days before Apple, if you had a Blackberry phone, you were considered rich.
but soon blackberry started launching affordable phones which made blackberry an extremely common phone.
the main difference is that a blackberry was a good phone ^^
They’re talking about the iPhone, what made apple big, before blackberry was thrown in the dumpster from touch screen
I know this is a year old but… yr comment makes 0 sense. You are right but what does that have to do with this comment?
i remember back in school i was the first kid to have a fancy blackberry smartphone. i was also the first kid to get rid of their brilliant blackberry keyboard slab for a Blackberry Storm. woops
honestly, that pk18 phone could've been a great emergency phone situation. imagine being stuck in the middle of nowhere or something but knowing your phone could at least last long enough for you to find a signal. and if they made it super durable etc.
It weighs a pound and is 18mm thick. Way too heavy, a power pack and a durable case would be better.
Like if they teamed up with Nokia.
I had the HTC One, was my very 1st smartphone in 2013. Absolutely loved it, but it crashed after 4 years. Best looking phone I have had. Seen those pics gave me goosebumps
Watching this towards rhe end of the year made me realize that it's really Samsung who's leading in innovation. They're hurrying on the being the first foldable phones but Samsung really forwarded with the Flip and the Fold this year. Kudos Samsung.
11:01 I also know that the Essential Phone had attachments available like the LG G5 and Moto Z's Moto Mods. AFAIK, they only had a 360° camera. Though one good thing they had going for it is the accessories attached magnetically, and are theoretically compatible with phones of multiple sizes. Unfortunately, these accessories are a mini tech fail of their own.
For the urgents 0:09. Moto razer 1:03. Royal flexpi 2:22. Air power 4:14. HTC u ultra 5:13. LG G5 6:38. Blackberry Z10 8:27 Samsung Bixby. 9:28 Amazon fire phone. 11:00. Essential 12:39. Apple battery gate. 13:52 Red hydrogen. 15:16. Google pixel 4 17:18 energizer P18K
uh there was already some chapters so you could jump there but thanks i guess?
Is bixby a phone? I only know it as an annoying app that you can't rid off
@Biplab Kumar Ghosh it's not on the Thumbnail?
I followed cellphone tech from 1998-2014 pretty heavily and then off to the side since and these series have been really nostalgic looking back. So much stuff I hoped would be game changing that just turned out to be wet farts lol.
HTC is the most upsetting for me. The M9 was a great phone and had my lock button not failed & had it continued to get software updates I'd probably still be using it. When I looked for a replacement HTC didn't have anything that was worth it.
Instead of a flip action, it could've had 2 separate screens that seamlessly blended, but to make it smaller, one of the screens pops up, like an elevator, and slides down onto the lower screen, and once on top of the lower screen, it locks, and the lower screen shuts off. It'd leave out the issues of flexible screens wirh the plastic or screen coming off, the battery sucking, etc. You could keep the main battery in the lower section, and the upper screen has a secondary battery to power it while it moves. I'm putting this out there, so now anyone can use it, but if you do use it, please mention me, or atleast build a major factory in West Virginia, we need more jobs.
No, apple's reasoning was "if we slow their devices down to a crawl they'll have to upgrade to a new device". The blatant *excuse* they gave was battery life longevity. This is much more in line with the type of thing apple would do.
In actuality, this is against Apple’s ideas only because they’re focusing a lot on subscriptions now. There’s always the risk a consumer will switch away from iPhone when they become dissatisfied with its performance, so Apple has actually made an effort to keep iPhones in the running as long as possible, because every iPhone is a portal to Apple Music, iCloud+, Apple TV and all the other subscriptions they’re hoping on being the future for them (phone sales across the board are slowly declining, this is their plan to respond). Still very scummy they never gave you the option to turn off throttling in the first place, but it at least makes some sense?
I feel like apple has to much money to care if you have a iPhone 6 instead of the 13
why do tech youtubers have the most soothing voices??? i could listen to this man talk about a painful disease and be lulled to sleep
YT: tech youtubers have the most soothing voices Linus Sebastian: Well, hello there!
I think it’s actually because of the soothing voice that he’s a successful tech IRglor.
Best part of this is I own two of these phones... the Essential and the Red... camera on the essential is pretty poor but the 360 attachment is kinda cool... and the hydrogen feels like it's missing a stun gun feature... it's a monster and super heavy but, in the immortal words of Flossy Carter... "feels so good in the hand... giggity"
Watching this feb 2022 it feels tame. I loved this video when it came out. Now it feels like someone took a mrwhosetheboss video and turned the energy down a little. What this says to me is you took something I loved.. and kept improving until its a level of awesome I couldn't have come up with myself. This channel is so. freaking. good. Really makes me wonder what else Iove now but is going to reach new places... Thanks for the vids!
As a former LG G5 owner (had it for over 2 years, bought a OnePlus next), I have to say that though the modularity aspect was completely stupid and a failure, the phone itself performed wonderfully as my first ever flagship device and is the reason I've now moved from mid-range to high-end smartphones (had a Sony M2 before the LG, and a pretty weak Hauwei before that).
I got the g5 for really cheap a year after it came out and I honestly really liked it, having the option yo carry a separate battery was pretty convenient tbh
I like how he doesn't just talk about the sponsor on the start, he just says thank you to the sponsor. And I like that! Thank you! Edit: Thanks for 3k likes lol :D
I was one of those Energizer backers. Hahaha. I would still want it. I personally hate how small and thin phones have gotten and how they are made of flimsy materials like back glass. Plus I believe it was advertised as having a slide out keyboard, which is the feature I miss most on phones as I have poor motor control, so typing a single message like this takes around 5-10 minutes on a touch screen, but under one minute on the galaxy slide style keyboards. (Which was the phone I bought for 3 2 year contracts straight, giving up the first 3-4 years of 4G.)
I can see the P18k being useful for people who go on arctic expeditions or something like that. It could’ve been sold very well if they made it for that purpose or something similar with other optimisations for that sort of thing but as a normal smartphone it’s only going to fail realistically.
Z10 still has the best touch screen keyboard I've ever used. Also the black Berry hub was great. Not sure why the keyboard never got repliicated
Biggest fails: - removing 3.5mm headphone kack - not including headphones - not including chargers - forcing wireless charging - punch hole camera's - oversized and underused screen size (notches and punchouts) - refusing to increase battery life by choosing too small battery capacities Basically every smart phone right now
Ikr my phone recently broke and i was horrified wheni found out basically every single phone on the market is like this. Decided on buying a Samsung note 9. A downgrade from whats on the market
As a smartphone avid gamer, i would say Punch Hole is not needed, they can better have small space to bottom and top just because it helps for Horizontal Hands Ergonomic and i believe our current industry also love Profits from streaming and gaming. That also probably why Iphone 13 back to notch which actually nice even for gamer(Iphone software rocks for me since i can resize the notch) For removing headphone jack, its seriously up to debate but it is not nice sometimes even tho as i own S7Flat, i can securely said you can have Waterproof+Headphone jack sooo.. idk For battery life i think most phone right now already good like 4k to 5k battery. I still remember how i buy 100$ for 3K powerbank battery.
I don't really have any issues with punched hole camera No headphone jack yeah bad decision No headphones, charger yeah bad decision Wireless charging=Terrible worst idea there is no need for that and it also wastes a lot of energy and heats up Screen size I am not really bothered by screen sizes Battery definitely smartphones deserve bigger battery or if not better battery usage so it lasts longer
no headphones is not great I guess but it's no big deal because they sucked anyway I really like the immersion of notches and hole punches and I think they add character to the front of the phone no charger yea kinda sucks but not biggest fail wireless charging is cool and I use it a lot but it's not a replacement for wired yet with the headphone jack I didn't even realize my phone didn't have one until I checked
I love how he doesn't spend 3 minutes on the sponsor he just mentions it or he just does it at the end
@Shahd Koja you're going out of scope of the original reason this discussion started
@Botney J yeah but it makes him money and he deserves it imo
Well it works
I don't get why people are mad about longer ads. I mean. You can just skip it
4:20 "you might remember the HTC one" and those memories are some of the best I've had with an android phone... HTC really had great build quality and attention to detail with their software, its a shame to see them fall
I kind of like the Essential PH-1. I got it at a reduced price on an Amazon prime day 4 (?) years ago. It is still running.
I enjoy watching him because of his cool contents aside from phone unboxing and reviewing
The G4 had flawed internals, but in terms of the physical design it had the single best user experience of any smartphone, ever.
BlackBerry was considered “professional” back in the day while Razors were for cool kids. Tell me I’m lying.
@Eg sad this made me die laughing thank you
@Eg sad lmao savage
@Eg sad touché 🤣🤣🤣
@SpiriT touché 🤣🤣🤣
I loved the BB Z10, the size and how it felt in your hand was great. The BB Hub was also great. Wish new smartphones had the same size as BB Z10 for Android.
HTC is one of my favorite. I remember the HTC M9. It was one of the best I've ever used. I still love HTC but because of the failure I'm a big Sony fan for bunch of reasons.
I had actually purchased an Amazon Fire Phone when it came out. I got a deal for $200 because I got it right away verse the $450 price it was going to jump up to. The dynamic view where you could tilt the background was actually pretty wicked. The other notable thing was you had free 24/7 Customer Service where you could call to ask any question.
the G5 was actually great! None of it's "features" were required in anyway. You could still replace the battery easily when others like the Galaxy S6 (or S7 or further) could not. I do not see how it's ability to expand with expansions and choices makes it a failure compared to the S6 that had zero customization.
I want to meet those 16 people who bought Energizer phone 🤣
Those people were Company Boards and Executive Employees 😂
I'm One Believe It Or Not
Lol 100% psych confirmed
@Beast if you're out hiking and shit for weeks it would be great, depending on how much extra weight it is
Bluefire 14 They are the employees of Energizer, Including the CEO. Giant RIP.
New to the channel, and after watchin this upload in its entirety, I can see how and why you've got over 8 million subs...I'm now one of those 8 million...great content bro, I'm gonna binge watch your content now.....🤘🏻🇺🇸
