Recently RED announced their first smartphone named as RED Hydrogen One. RED has designed a HOLOGRAPHIC display for this phone which is quite impressive!


The display of the phone is 5.7 inch LCD display which has the resolution of 2560X1440. The display has large bezels around it with two front facing speakers and a notification LED. The main feature comes out about the display is the 3D holographic display. It is actually a 3D depth effect created by the screen which helps to to see the screen moving and gives a holographic sight.

The RED phone has got dual 12 megapixel rare camera with dual tone LED flash. And yes they can shoot 4K! The camera inside the phone was pretty amazing. Good dynamic range,good color accuracy and the HDR mood was performing great! But the frustrating part was that the sensors was not made by RED besides they are just typical SONY or LEICA sensors which we don’t know.But the overall camera performance was good.And surprisingly it can also shoot 3D live images with both Front and Rare camera

The PHONE is running on SNAPDRAGON 835 processor. Yes, it is a one year old chip bus the performance was overall good because of simple UI. Most importantly the performance was quite good as it was running on one year old chip.It has the microSD slot,type C port and also has the HEADPHONE jack. It has a screen lock FINGERPRINT SENSOR which is impressive and was fast enough to unlock the phone at a glance. The phone also has a massive  battery of 4500 maH.

RED claims to use the modules underneath the phone to upgrade storage,add external camera and add some extra juice to the battery. This modules will be released on 2019 as it is said on the RED website. If it comes it will be a nice update for the phone besides a RED camera module can impact the camera performance and give a great smartphone camera!

  • 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


At the price point of $1300 RED Hydrogen One is not a phone to be suggested. At this price point we’ve got a lot of phones having a lot more features to give! Besides, Apple,Samsung and even some Chinese brands offer much more features on their phones at a lower price point. But RED is known for its best of the best product. So,we hope adding some modules and some other features may attract the customers in 2019 as they promised to release some camera,storage or battery modules for the phone according to their website. Till then it’s not worth buying.
