Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Have every right to wind because I'm the one who has who's using the s twenty ultra right now and you're still waiting on your give us a little bit of the story that. I want to give you the floor to like talk about like your your Samsung situation. I think everyone Samsung Situation. Is Different. Like I I went to the launch event. I didn't see you there. Because everyone's launch events are different You guys had a unique room to the side where everyone could go and get videos and pictures in peace. While I was in the main hall with I think like four thousand people in that room trying to get video and pictures And unfortunately it was terrible lighting right all the the lighting was horrible and you've been to launch events multiple times where the lighting is just bad. Essentially they find a the darkest facility they could ever find with no natural light at all then they turn down all the lights and then they proceed. Put Spotlights on the devices so you have this incredible like three thousand to one contrast ratio between. What's dark and what's light? Then into that mix they throw in blue like Samsung's blue neon color. They have led lights with blue shining here and there and it's just horrible especially that blue because cameras don't like that blue at all and so whenever you all of my photos to actually caught that blue makes it look like there is no contrast to that at all. It's either one solid blue like there's no gradient to it at all and it's just horrible but as far as devices go. I'm still without a Samsung Galaxy. Flip I'm without a Samsung Galaxy s? Twenty ultra which everybody in the world seems to have or at least a select few. Unfortunately I'm not on that list So you'll have to enlighten us about the amazing things that this phone can do. Well besides my you know our with the phone at the launch event a week and a half ago. I'm I'm still sitting here like everybody else without a phone. Well it's funny because like we we talk about like the creative side Youtube and of tech blogging quite a bit To give a peek behind the curtain. You and I both have published what we'll call complaints video. Okay I have. I have this thought that I should stop saying the word complaints because it creates such a visceral reaction like I might change it to like the word concerns instead especially if it's a phone that's not released yet because people can have this notion in their heads but obviously youtube rages very potent and very real thing But Yeah we we actually have talked about it a little bit and now that I'm actually using the phone. I have to admit that and this is my final review always is whether or not my complaints or concerns actually pan out and I got to say so far maybe like three of five three or five or still three five actually have panned out. They have been problems. Like I don't like the color selection of s twenty ultra. It really makes me upset when they show so much love to the other phones but the one that everyone really wants you kind of just stuck with what they give you which is usually black and the thankfully though they send the gray one out to people so it actually looks a little bit different but I just immediately put like a case on it anyway. The front facing camera is okay so I did take some forty megapixel shots with the front facing camera and they seem quite highly detailed after all when you use the sensor for whatever reason. Samsung can't tack on their software on top. So it's not it doesn't have the beautification doesn't have any of the extra stuff is just raw photo. And the same goes for the one hundred eight megapixel front facing camera. I would love to see like more than one. They're like we're putting six seven eight cameras on the back of phones. Why can't we get a little bit more for the front so that that is still a complaint that I have but yeah like my main thing is just the price I'm still. I'm lucky enough to be able to use this fun and be able to send one out but I still can't shake the feeling that a lot of what. This phone has is Bo guarding at all? Because it would be great to have the one eight megapixel on the smallest phone. Just there's no reason. Yeah and there's no reason because Xiaomi came out last fall with essentially the same sensor Samsung and Xiaomi collaborated on the sensor. I think the one. That's in the ultras a little bit different than the ones Xiaomi released. But you know it's been a couple of months so it's gotten a little bit better. Yeah but this Xiaomi phone was what you know an eight hundred dollar phone yeah and it and it had. It's palpable in terms of not palpable. It's more accessible in terms of he feel and handling and whatnot. And you don't need a telescopic lens like you just don't and it's a nice party trick and I'll admit that ten times zoom on the ultra has been kind of. Nice tweet yesterday about how I wanted to do this whole story in video and just say like you ever walk in just you know. The streets are in nature or anything like that you see a squirrel and you. WanNa like run up to it and it runs away when you get within like like ten feet of it. Yeah Ten fifteen feet. And they're gone right. Yeah exactly I saw one in the Burrito which is where I went to get like neutral shots and I stood there now. Oh there's a squirrel over there is a fat one two and I was just like okay. Let's see what happens here so I went five times. Okay not too bad ten times. That's better thirty times and IT WAS RIGHT UP. On the the Squirrel filling the screen phillies screen and the problem. Though is that the moment you get over ten times you start it's digital zoom or hybrids and whatever you WANNA call it and it it starts to lose quality so it's like how useful can something like that truly. Be You know if if Samsung any other manufacturers do these zooms are trying to tell you that. Oh you know those people with the huge like safari lenses on Lars. You can have that on the phone and no you. Yeah exactly well. And so like the last couple days as everybody got the s twenty ultra they. Everyone was posting their pictures of you. Know Ultra wide standard ten x zoom. One hundred zoom and I I was going through everybody's pictures and clicking on them and of course they're all uploaded to twitter which already compresses the file. So you're not getting the full resolution. But I I went to look at the files and looked at their ten x zoom and then looked at their hundred x zoom and then zooming in to the ten x zoom the picture quality. The resolution was the same. Because that's actually what it is as two hundred x zoom so. I'm like this marketing thing that they're having with the one hundred. X Zoom is just horrible because they actually print it on the back of the phone. It says doesn't it say one hundred x on the camera and it's like I can. I can take any phone and crop in and say one hundred x right. It's not and with my video that I did about the you'll have an ultra actually called it. Ta- five reasons why you shouldn't by this phone and one of them was for the hundred x zoom because it's just a marketing gimmick. That's all it is thought the tenax looks good. I like I I really WANNA try. The ten acts in a certain situations like my daughter. She's eight years old. She just started playing basketball this last year at the community center. She's on a little team and where we have to sit while we're at their practices and their Games is. I'm hundred fifty feet away from where they're actually playing because they're you know it's three courts and they're one court over and so. I can't get really close having that ten x zoom in that situation for recording video as she's playing her game would be amazing on a smartphone. But other than that. It's like you know. When would I actually be using ten x zoom you know on a day-to-day basis if I'm on vacation that's one thing like if I'm going out and you know trying to get picture of some attraction or something that we're never gonna see ever again and trying to get that photo but other than that you know? There's there's not that many situations were ten x zoom actually comes in handy. That's why you don't see it that often even with actual DSL are zoom lenses. It's really not fair that often. And if it is it's really
