    anyone else like the punchout? just me? i think it looks neat, and really never bothers me - i have the s10 (not plus- so its just a circle, but still...)

    LINUS is absolutely right about the display SCREEN for BOTH samsung 10+ and iphone xs max. They are both garbage design. I just wanted a flat panel like the note and i was sold. But now i Will have to either settle for iphone8 PLUS or Note 9.

    How are the photos you've taken so bad?I have s10 plus and photos are crisp and clear as hes not the best looking youtuber maybe the test subject needed improvement not the camera lol and isnt the fingerprint scanner for security?so what's the problem if it takes a bit more to open the screen if it's more secure with sonic than optical....

  • Daniel Cappiello

    I gave up on this video when he said "both the wide angle and regular selfie cams are bad quality"
    ....that's probably because it doesn't have two cameras there. It's one camera and a depth sensor. At least know what phone you're using before reviewing it

    I'm not a fan of the island punch hole / i-Notch either. Starting to like the OnePlus 7 pro pop up camera.

  • Eurostar 07
    Eurostar 07 2 days ago +1

    Also, motorized pop-up cameras come at a price. They do not guarantee fully water proof device, because water can get inside the gaps if you pop out the camera in the water. If you read the fine print on those devices it does not guarantee damage-free from underwater use despite being waterproof. Pop-up cameras also have more moving parts, which can cause more malfunctions.
    If you said headphone jack is becoming obsolete, i would agree with you, because more people are using bluetooth audio devices which have great quality, but a cutout for a camera being obsolete? I expected more from a tech "expert", and i expected said expert to actually think of things at many possible angles and not complain about something that is merely cosmetic.

  • Eurostar 07
    Eurostar 07 2 days ago

    Why are people complaining about the camera cutouts when literally 2 or 3 gens ago, the S7 and the S8 had bezels on top and on bottom of the phones? So they were okay 2 years ago but now they arent okay? I just find it a stupid reason to be pissed about having a small cutout on the screen, its so small. Also, Samsung is developing screens that have camera BENEATH the screen so there will be no cutout, and still be fully functional but honestly, for me personally the cutout is a non-issue.

    Talking about your content looking stupid remember when you recommended the handheld molecular food scanner?mmmmm
    Then went on to endorse it???mmmmmmm
    You really did your research on that didn't you, try doing the exact same tests on the latest Apple, you will find that when your not controlled by sponsors you actually create real unbiased content.
    Unfortunately, you have literally destroyed your credibility...some time ago...
    No coming back from that after the train wreck of an "appology" after Thunderf00t utterly DESTROYED YOU AND YOUR CHANNEL....
    People should look for reviewers who actually research their reviews, not like you did with your molecular scanner.
    How about that!!!
    Think you could have actually made a far better content however everyone knows you sold out many years ago........
    Oh there is another sponser, soon you will just release sponser videos instead of real content......
    Make your own minds up people!!!
    Try Gamers Nexus who actually does research worth it's weight in gold compared to the scammers who fooled you into recommending a sci fi toy!!!!!!
    Sad thing is I really liked you, many did however after you sell out you don't really recover....

    • Infinityxtx

      Plus, right back at you, why do you care about what people such as myself think?
      Perhaps it is because I will provide your viewers with a very specific narrative. One that relies not on evidence, nor even hearsay, however you review and happily take your subscribers hard earned money to basically plug a scam.
      You go to great lengths to do so and your appology video mat have well been written by Mel Gibson.
      I'm sorry this viewpoint hurts your sensibilities however your subscribers should be very very concerned about this, plus even more so that you are reaching out to me to ask why I'm mad?
      Your whole business model is based on fair accurate descriptions of products, you destroyed this model with the video I mentioned.
      You should not be asking me why I am mad however enquiring why did we allow this to happen???

      You guys make a ton of money and it's no secret that you are sponsored to the hilt.
      Would your sponsors find it interesting you are actually perpetuating lies?!
      Running Kruger effect mayhaps?
      Spelling mistakes are for your amusement.
      If you don't like this fact then please look at yourselves or I am available as a fact checker for you at a reasonable cost as long as your not scamming people so that would be a no....

    • Infinityxtx
      Infinityxtx 2 days ago +1

      +Adam L. I'm mot "mad" as you put it over an opinion. The reason I get frustrated is when you basically do no research on a product which was so obviously fake it beggars belief and LTT are in a position of authority and people take into account their recommendations so for them to fail so utterly dramatically makes people ACTUALLY believe and trust their opinion.
      The fact you are not concerned about this so obviously disastrous failure betrays your real intent.

  • Laura Miller

    Can anyone explain more what he said about the unlocked phone looking into a carrier once he inserted a sim? I have yet to get the s10 but plan to get an unlocked one, despite all my research on the phone this is one problem I havnt heard of. Just want to know what to expect when I purchase it. Is he saying it locked into a the carrier once he inserted it and that he then had to call the provider and unlock it?

    • Space
      Space 3 days ago

      Laura Miller It takes like 10 minutes to actually do and overall it's necessary to make sure that it's updated for us cellular bands so I see why it's a thing but I also think it's an annoyance

    The hole punch-out is tons of miles better than any notch, like when you see a phone with a notch it's instantly the iPhone X, but a hole punch-out INSTANTLY says S10 with barely any Real Estate loss
