Red Hydrogen One

I like the Red Hydrogen One for what it is — a concept. As a consumer product it is just an overpriced phone with a great design. Other elements fall behind due to having old specs, a subpar camera, and a bad display. All for a price higher than any other high-end smartphone and a promise of a brighter future.

What we don't like
