MKBHD, with Verge, Describes His 'Dream Smartphone'

November 17, 2014 by

Self-made tech review wunderkind Marques Brownlee collaborated with the Verge Video team last week (Nov. 12) to assemble his dream "Frankenstein beast of a phone."

The 4-minute video is fascinating not just in outlining Brownlee's design and spec preferences, but in the Verge Video team's interactive diagrams - which morph and mold according to his narration. Very cool stuff. (See video below.)

Here's a brief summary of the devices from which Brownlee's "Dream Smartphone" borrows:

  • Body: HTC One M8 (with squared corners like the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and back panel texture from Nokia Lumia series)
  • Screen: LG G3
  • Specs: Quad core Snapdragon 805 processor; 3 GB RAM; Adreno 420 GPU
  • Battery: Moto Droid Turbo (has a 3,900 mAh battery)
  • Camera: iPhone 6 Plus... BUT it doesn't shoot 4K video so, he goes with the Galaxy Note 4 camera
  • OS: pure stock Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Storage: 128 GB onboard flash storage
