RED Hydrogen One review: Mediocre cameraphone, extraordinary price tag


RED's Hydrogen One is an Android phone all about 3D. There are 3D cameras on the front and back, and you can watch 3D movies on what the company calls a “4V” display. It comes with a Snapdragon 835, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, which puts it on par...

True 3D pictures and video ; Extreme battery life ; Durable design ; Tool-less microSD access

Heavy bloatware on AT&T ; Unfinished camera software ; Very high price

RED Hydrogen One


The Hydrogen One, the first phone from camera manufacturer RED, needs more focus on the actual camera and less on gimmicky 3D.

Potential for great camera add-ons. Huge battery.

Huge. Heavy. Expensive. 3D is not holographic and doesn't look particularly good.

Bottom Line: The Hydrogen One, the first phone from camera manufacturer RED, needs more focus on the actual camera and less on gimmicky 3D.

Red Hydrogen One Review: This Fascinating $1,300 Phone Needs Work


Rarely have I been so conflicted by a device as I have with Red's very first smartphone. The Hydrogen One is an ambitious device that so desperately wants to change your life. And every now and then, when the display strikes your eyes at just the...

Great battery life ; 3D effect really works

Very expensive ; Flat speakers ; Average cameras for the price ; Dated specs

Red's futuristic smartphone is finally here, but this vision of the future needs work.

Red Hydrogen One Hands-On: Gimmicky Holograms, But Mods Have Promise


Red's hyped-up holographic Hydrogen One is not the futuristic phone of your dream. But it just might be the best phone yet for aspiring filmmakers.

The Red Hydrogen One Is a Phone Made for an Alternate Reality


Jim Jannard is an interesting guy. After starting a one-man business selling motorcycle parts, he decided to pivot into goggles and eyewear. Fast forward about 25 years, and Oakley had become one of the biggest sunglass brands in the world. Then in...

Very solid build, dedicated camera button, has a headphone jack

Red Hydrogen One phone review: You have never seen a phone like it


It's exciting, eccentric and expensive.

The Red Hydrogen One phone is built like a high-end camera. The 3D screen really works, 2D photos are beautiful with an analog-film vibe and it has a giant battery.

The 2D video image quality is just OK. The phone is expensive and lacks water resistance and wireless charging. There are no modules at launch.

The Red Hydrogen One is an exciting, eccentric phone aimed at creatives. But underwhelming video quality and rough software already have us pining for the sequel.
