When Red Digital Cinema first announced they were looking to build a phone many people were very interested. The idea that the company who turned the world of cinema cameras on its head taking on the stagnant world of smartphones with mediocre cameras was a big one. Sadly, after the announcement there were significant delays for the new device. Happily, for the rest of the smartphone world, newer generations of cameras and camera software began to up their game on what we can do with our smartphone cameras. Still, this is Red we are talking about here, so despite these advances they were sure to have a significant product. If you read most of the “reviews” out there you would not think that was the case. Personally, I was not deterred by the reviews as most of them came off as incomplete. I decided to take it for a spin, but not a quick 15 minutes, but a 30-day plus test run including taking it around to get reactions from other people. So, with that in mind, let’s see what we found.

The other evening I left the office, got about a half block and had to pull a U-turn to go back for my smartphone. I’ve left my billfold at the office a few times but never bothered to retrieve it … just drove a little more carefully the next morning. Sure, I have a tablet and ultrabook at home that I could have used; but jeezz, it’s my smartphone! It’s not like I’m addicted to it. It’s not like I sleep with it … silly house rules!
It’s no wonder the smartphone has taken off so rapidly around the globe. From almost anywhere, it enables you to be in touch with everyone, virtually anytime.
