RED Hydrogen One review: Modular, ambitious, incomplete

The first phone from cinema giant RED has lots of modular video potential, but it falls short on the basics and its holographic view is a fun party trick at best.

  1. Should have just released the phone in 2019 with 2019 specs if that’s when the modules are going to drop, because without those, this phone has no reason to even exist.

  2. did you say impressive low light performance? lol….every other review says it struggles in low light condition. and the camera sensor is not even made by red … probably sony's regular sensor. this phone is a disaster and a huge failure. 1300$ shit comparing to other flagships out there. And it's an ugly son of bitch.

  3. Frankly, I'm not worried about the Snapdragon 835 being in the Hydrogen One. That SoC is already plenty powerful and capable in the imaging department.

    What I'm disappointed at is that lackluster stock camera app missing CORE features from it's dedicated manual mode. I'm not expecting nice software computational tricks a la Pixel 3 but it looks like RED did nothing on the camera front since they were so focused on their 4V camera and content creation.

    Oh well, there's always next year.

  4. A RED employee has made the following comment:

    "The reviews happened on devices with Software that is equivalent to the very early Houdini Software from beginning September. We have done quite a journey since then."

    "We have contacted the reviewers and explained the situation. Some of them were professional enough and contacted us when they realized that they had an old software on their device. Others were looking for clicks…"

    The 4V did not look that great in early September (ghosting and kind of blurry looking)… It looks WAY better now, after about 3 updates, all with feedback for each, and they are still refining (new beta came out last week for Houdini. The ghosting is gone, and is way sharper now). Shame they pushed these reviews out with that early of software, so they pretty much reviewed a 'dev kit', and not a retail device.

  5. This review felt pretty lacking. You should've gone over it in other areas like if it has a headphone jack, the front speakers, the full specs, etc.

  6. Red said they needed more horsepower for some of the things they want to do but stuff this with a 835?!

    Throw in an A12x. It should fit, this phone is giant.

  7. Lol. A 2017 spec. phone out in 2018 while waiting for mods that may come out in 2019.

    Not to mention the screen that reminds the reviewer of an old 3ds. All for $1300.
