Now this week's show is unfortunately going to be on the short and sweet side or, to put it more accurately, it's going to be short and just about as rancid on the tongue. As always, and the reason for this diminished statute is twofold. First of all, i've got some really big videos that are going to be going live next week that i can't even tell you about, but i desperately need to finish them off: tst's tcc's and, secondly, it's actually my birthday this week, that's right i'm. Finally, turning 21 becoming a man, so apologies gon na, have to skip this week's tech news uh, not that there's a huge amount of particularly exciting stuff going on anyway. As far as i can see and skip straight ahead to my favorite part of the show, viewer comments and don't worry to make up for it. Next week's show will be so girthy it'll make you a joke, jingle all the way, expert, weekly and then straight on to the viewer comments. Jingle viewer comments. First up franklin, goodwin, says. After speaking to my mom, she says she likes your eyebrows, the best chris uh, a woman of impeccable tastes. She likes it big and bushy eh uh. Next up, i man omar says, is real meat, a chinese company, and if so, would it still have google in the future, and would you recommend the real me six pro uh, yet real me is indeed chinese. They'Re, actually part of the tech super umbrella group.
That includes oppo and oneplus and i'd like to say that it's unlikely that realme and the various other chinese manufacturers are unlikely to lose their google privileges, like, unfortunately, huawei did, but it kind of all depends on whether trump gets another four years in the oval office. To further escalate his various grudges and finally, the state of the world right now who knows world war iii is probably just around the freaking corner so yeah, and that kiddies is why i drink booze uh next up michael comments. Uh, they see. If you see a mortar allah three times, one of their hands hits gets released um or is that beetlejuice i get confused? You know that seems uh seems legit. Definitely, if you see it three times into a mirror, the mortal man pops out and he gives you a red good kicking in the coconuts a bit more anime action in the comments. Again, of course, uh jason says full metal. Alchemist brother heard that that's my favorite anime of all time. I never watched that spin off. Unfortunately, i watched a bit of the original, but too many episodes, man it's the same with like bleach naruto, anything anything with like dozens and dozens of episodes. I just can't: do it man i'm, not saying i have a life or anything because i quite clearly don't. I just don't have the patience for it. A liam short for william says what's your take on classic akira or we headed there.
I think we're pretty much there aren't, we, i remember thinking the film was a bit mental uh, but i did go out and hunt down some of the actual original manga from the library of all places. They had quite a few the volumes, but i think i got to about volume three and then realized they didn't have volume, four, which is really freaking annoying, but frankly, the fact that sutherland library had any books at all is pretty much a miracle. I got ta admit i mostly just went there to rent dvds and cds. There was also, of course, lots of hot game informed talk last week as well. If you missed it, you really missed out on a treat for uh glc took uh offense to the fact that i said the rogue three isn't much of an evolution over the rogue phone ii uh what he says. It has a five megapixel macro camera that everyone was asking for. Yes, good old mackerel lenses, yeah, definitely worth one thousand pound asking price for that bad boy, uh and no. I don't think it was being serious on that one uh. But on that subject, shield viewer says rogfon3 costs way too much. Um yeah you're, definitely gon na have a limited audience with that sort of asking price, especially for something as niche as a game and smartphone uh. Basically, the rock phone three is for what rich kids and drug traffickers and that's pretty much it uh joshua asks: are you going to review the upcoming red magic 5s, and do you have any news about the black shark, 3s uh red magic? 5S? Definitely a! I think i actually launched it officially earlier this week, but they did contact me a couple of weeks ago to say they would be sending me a unit so fingers crossed soon.
I think they said it would be coming next month, so that would be good. As for the black shark, no official word from xiaomi on that bad boy, but you can expect it to launch pretty soon. It'Ll have a couple of updates over the original, like, for instance, the 865 plus chipset, to bring it in lines with the likes of the rogue form 3 and that mental lenovo legion fun, except hopefully, it'll be a bit cheaper than both of them. So we won't have to harvest too many orphan organs in order to get one and on the subject of the lenovo legion duo that should be coming in in september, so stay tuned for more on that uh next up, stefan says other than watching every video that You make, is there a way to support you? Maybe a t shirt that says: it's the pixel foray update or viewer comments. Dear god help us all actually now that you mention it, i do need a babysitter to look after my mental five year old kid. If you're up for that, but no seriously just watching the rubbish that i churn out on a pretty much daily basis is definitely very much appreciated and a great help. Indeed, and if you know anyone who's looking for tech advice is looking for a new smartphone or whatever then definitely point them. This way again would be very much appreciated. Good old uncle spurt will come to the rescue uh next up.
Lupin says for the dude that asks for a mid range phone with stereo speakers and no pinhole cam. I can recommend the asus zenfone 6. um yeah that's technically accurate, although to be honest, that top speaker on the zenfone 6 was weaker than a toddler's fart. So it was definitely the bottom end that was really producing the grunt of the sound and also it's a real real crying gym, but the zenfone 6 is an absolute twat to get a hold of these days. You just can't find it anywhere. Oh excuse me, which is a real shame, because it's a really freaking good phone and on that note joe asks, if there's any sign of the zenfone 7. Sadly, no, not a sniff just yet, which is real. Shame hopefully, really really soon, because that zenfone 6 was definitely one of my favorite smartphones of last year, pretty helpful. My expectation levels, weren't, exactly sky high, but yeah great stuff. All right next up mark says settle a bit. Are you a mackham or a geordie uh? I am a machine for anyone who doesn't know what that means. That means i come from sunderland, not newcastle, which is where the geordies come from. I know that a lot of people see sunlight as like the poor neighbor of newcastle, but you know we got some stuff going on it's pretty happening. Um we've got uh the glass museum, for instance, we've got about a dozen greg's and what? If the geordie's got? Some wooden tit with wings uh next matthew, says god.
I miss the windows for now, so many new ideas have been swallowed up by ios and android, claiming them as their own shame. The phone hardware was not up to par the lack of promotion from microsoft and, of course, the big hit. It was the utter lack of apps that killed the os off um yeah. The app situation, certainly wasn't great, just – could not compete against ios and android by any stretch of the imagination uh, which is, we are really really intrigued by huawei and whether it can really make the app gallery work out. It'S certainly got huge amounts of investment. That is chucking at the thing so fingers crossed. As far as the hardware goes, though, i really really like those old nokia lumia handsets they were pretty much the motorola uh back in the day, they're producing about 12 a frickin month which kept us all very busy. Indeed, nice spangly colors and everything – and i remember we – all uh – lost our spit at the uh, the nokia lumia 1020, with this wild and crazy 41 megapixel camera mental. In fact, i still remember the launch of that really vividly because it was at the otto arena in central london and uh they'd organized for us to climb up to the top of it to take. You know crazy shots of the london skyline, but it was going to take about two hours to get us all set up and ready.
So we ended up just bugging off to the pub instead, which i feel kind of bad about now, but uh yeah. Next up jamie says: in the light of eye watering prices for flagships these days. Do you think that mid range is all the way to go? Yep and matthew asks any word on the microsoft surface duo. Well, i've heard diddly squat from microsoft myself. I call it the website it's still coming holiday, 2020. Whatever that means um, i mean i don't know about you, but basically the hall of 2020 has felt like a holiday to me. Just you know, sod off work put your feet up. Smash through endless netflix box sets don't even bother changing your pants because it's, just you, the wife and the cat, who's gon na smell them anyway, celebrate good times come on a jedi polar bear says have to love the further use of roger's profanosaurus. Your reviews are just epic it's, like the last surviving member of last of the summer wine ranting to himself bloody jesus. I don't, like that old. Do i, and on that subject, is there actually a last standing member of last of the summer wine a lust of the summer wine standing? If you will ah right sorry, my pretties, i have to fly now and by fly i mean basically hunch myself over a laptop for 12 hours and edit video until my eyes bleed out of my skull. But thank you.
Thank you. Thank you so much to everyone who watched last week's show and commented, and thank you for watching this show and making it to the end. I apologize again that it's, a short one i'll say hopefully make up for it next week, if i'm not absolutely swamped again and the good news is next week, there is some big stuff coming up on tech experts. Obviously, samsung's launches happening on the wednesday. We'Ve got a few other sticky little bits coming here and there as well all very harsh, show very secret, but uh make sure you put subscribe and ding that notifications, bell and you'll be the first to see all that sexy, shiny, spangly content going live next week.
