Engadget Review

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 with most flagship phones… that came out in 2017. The Hydrogen is novel, but at $1,295, it’s not a device that lives up to its price.
