BigLittle was so terrible that Apple copied it for their latest processors. I guess you need to go do some more reading.
Old Fart, 23 Jan 2018For the people who buy Red cameras even the $1600 for the Ti version is neither here nor there... moreI know Red is no stranger to the game. They're a startup as far as being a smartphone company. So far, they're making moves that will entice enthusiasts into buying their phone.
CptPower, 23 Jan 2018Man president of Razer company said without jack they added 500 mAh to battery to Razer phone,... morehow the hell they can add 500mah to battery where almost batteries with size of twice the jack space barely can ad this much to battery!
just another shit from a phone seller to sell the product!

Try to use the 115MBps sd cards, and you will see a huge difference. 95MBps is ok, but still not flawless. The USB is just 1 option, wifi direct is another. But yeah, I do hear that you have no experience without sd card, what so ever. Bet you got a hard on when your beloved Sammy brought back the sd cards. Go follow your flock of mindless sheeps. Please try options out, before you sell your heart to Google searches.

Not to mention cloud storage means the operator can see what you stored and phones charge significantly more once you start getting the higher storage option ones.
"so you actually need to buy the expensive SD cards to have everything working smoothly. The cheaper ones will give you lag and harder to record smooth 4k videos." This has to be the most flawed statement I've seen in this week. There are already cheap and decent SD cards that can record 4K video without hassle, Samsung Evo Plus as an example.
Anyway, Sheeples gonna be Sheeples, and getting ripped off is fun.

Did you know that you can connect your phone to your computer with the usb cable? 3 simple things right there that you can use without SD. Most new phones today have ufs 2.1, so you actually need to buy the expensive SD cards to have everything working smoothly. The cheaper ones will give you lag and harder to record smooth 4k videos. Even apps and games gets slow by being on those SD cards. So yes, sd cards are overrated and a worthless gimmick. But I guess it's good for people who can't think outside of the box and realize we live in 2018.

Razer have 4000 mAh battery copared to for example S8 the battery is much bigger. We cant even compare it with apple cuz their stackable batteries to save thicknes is as bad idea as jack ever was.
And MIL-STD is higher than IP68. Also we have an IP69K rating which is highest possible but in opresent era no phone have this. Not even Sonim XP7 which is most rugged smartphone up to the date.

This "phone" (It's much more than *just* a 'phone) will be about the cheapest bit of stand-alone kit that Red have ever produced.
Really suggest people check out the source link, and the Red site before commenting.

And remember, there aren't a rating higher than IP68, and I see no point why you would dip your phone in water for almost one and a half hour.
Headphone Jack may be old, but it's a matured tech and has great compatibility. Relevant features should not be removed. More features is always better.

Also, having SD card slot in a phone isn't just for expanding storage. The images can be portable just like how you carry a thumb drive.

Old Fart, 23 Jan 2018For the people who buy Red cameras even the $1600 for the Ti version is neither here nor there... moreNo they they probably can't just go and design their own SoC unless they do the same as the rest and get arm and do little to no modifications. And if they do more than little modification then it will take years. Apple and snap dragons are they only heavily modified arm cpus the rest don't even bother. And snap dragons haven't been much of a good modification ever since the big little architect came out. Still they have the best package for everyone to use.

If faced with a choice between no jack and an extra mm of phone thickness I'll have the extra mm every time. But then I have a number of headsets and patch leads, and I don't want a dongle for some one piece of equipment. I suspect the long term plan is to get rid of wired phones so people cannot record anything.

And i said my honest opinion you will do nothing with it as well.
You cant change behavior of companies and people representing it.
Apple dont use jack for several years and people dont bother.

But every person show height of his IQ different way.
In your case the height is smaller than sole of my shoes.
Barely seen under microscope.
And the 3D content will rise again... Thanks, RED. Thanks to thinking in more juice, thanks to thinking 3D, thanks to allows 2 SIMs (eg. professional and personal), thanks to the headphone jack. What I also would like to see: IP/MIL certification (a hard to break phone like Nokia 3310), a 360-camera module (with auto stabilization), stereo mic (or an alternative to Sennheiser Amber Headset).
