  • So we got a weird one today...a little something I saw over on Unbox Therapy channel a while

  • back.

  • It has to be one of the strangest phones I've ever seen, but surprisingly only costed me

  • $35 on eBay.

  • A self-proclaimed dust-proof, shockproof, waterproof, and rugged, dual SIM card cellphone,

  • with, get this, a built-in shaver.

  • Yeah.

  • Like the kind of shaver you would shave your face with.

  • In the box it even has one of those little bristle cleaners for the foil head.

  • I'll be testing all of these features, if it ever turns on, side-by-side with a normal

  • razor blade from Dollar Shave Club, who's sponsoring this video, all in the name of

  • science of course.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • Turns out that the phone wasn't dead out of the box.

  • The phone has a massive old-school removable 3800 milliamp hour battery that has some tape

  • over the battery contacts.

  • And once I got that tape off everything started working.

  • We do durability tests here on my channel to make sure...

  • [ Weird song starts playing from phone]

  • ...to... make sure the manufacturers are giving us quality durable products.

  • And that includes this Frankenstein monstrosity of a cellphone shaver.

  • Let's see what this thing is made from, starting with the screen.

  • I have a set of Mohs picks that visibly show us what the screen is made from.

  • Glass is a level 6.

  • A diamond screen would be a level 10.

  • But since this unique machine is only $30 on eBay, the screen is plastic, scratching

  • at a level 3 with deeper grooves at a level 4.

  • It does have the brightest flashlight I've ever seen on a phone though.

  • So if you've ever wanted to call your grandma while shaving in the dark, this phone is for

  • you.

  • The front buttons are painted plastickind of what we would expect to find on the lower

  • end of the quality scale.

  • A higher end plastic button example would be the embedded buttons on the Nintendo Switch.

  • We aren't just here for the buttons though.

  • Let's shave the shaver.

  • The side buttons are made from plastic.

  • It seems to be a reoccurring theme throughout this phone.

  • The back panel is also made from plastic.

  • The center logo thing has more of a clear rubber over the top.

  • The flashlight on the top of the phone has a plastic lens which is fine and normal.

  • The camera lens though is also plastic.

  • It's a bold move.

  • That little piece of plastic is protecting all .3 megapixels of the camera, so it's pretty

  • safe to say that quality pictures were not the first priority on this flashlight shaver

  • that happens to make phone calls.

  • The little flap doohickey down at the bottom protects the micro USB and regular sized USB

  • slot, and hasn't stayed shut since I unboxed this thing.

  • So I think that waterproof claim is completely bogus.

  • It will be nice to use that full-sized USB slot to charge up some other accessories though.

  • It's interesting that the dedicated shaver switch on the side doesn't have a safety lock.

  • I imagine this shaver randomly going off in your pocket is going to be a real issue...still

  • more useful than Bixby though.

  • Let's give this thing a shot at shaving.

  • You might be thinking to yourself, why is this grown man shaving his arm with a cellphone,

  • and you're right.

  • This is an incredibly weird situation.

  • I think maybe we should just clear your search history and not talk about this again.

  • But if I'm being completely honest, this is the best shave I've ever gotten with a cellphone.

  • 10 out of 10.

  • I'm legitimately surprised it even works.

  • Fair is fair though.

  • Let's see what an actual razor can do.

  • Dollar Shave Club has this starter box they send out for $5 with free shipping.

  • It has all kinds of goodies.

  • They even have stuff like toothpaste and hair styling products, for those of you who have

  • hair, that you can add into the kit later.

  • Not just razors.

  • And the best part is there are zero contracts, so if being clean is not your thing, you can

  • quit whenever you want.

  • Not a bad deal at all for just $5.

  • Replacement blades are sent for just a few dollars a month after the first batch and

  • I'll leave a link in the description.

  • The razor is just as, if not more, efficient than the shaver phone.

  • And it won't awkwardly go off in your pocket.

  • Grab your own $5 kit with a link in the description, or head to dollarshaveclub.com/JerryRig.

  • It's pretty easy.

  • Thanks to Dollar Shave Club for sponsoring this video.

  • Let's finish off the durability test and see how this shaver phone works from the inside.

  • One of the biggest flaws in this phone is the lack of games.

  • There is no Snake game, which is kind of a deal breaker for me.

  • The 2.6 inch screen is covered by that thick layer of plastic so the heat from my lighter

  • doesn't penetrate down into the display below.

  • But we can see it melting the outer plastic.

  • It did last about 18 seconds before turning into a molten mess.

  • Which is good to know if you happen to be shaving outside by a campfire.

  • Structurally, if it looks like a brick and feels like a brick, there's a good chance

  • it's actually a brick.

  • And that is indeed the case with this random conglomerate of gadgets.

  • The shaver phone is surprisingly sturdy.

  • I still have massive doubts about the waterproof claims though, since there is no actual IP

  • rating and the back panel and bottom flap keep opening up on their own.

  • So maybe don't get this thing wet while shaving...you might lose your $30 investment.

  • I vote we open it up and see how the shaver operates from the inside.

  • It's actually rather simple with 2 screws holding the bottom together, 4 invisible screws

  • holding together each of the golden metal side rails, and 2 more Phillips head screws

  • up at the top.

  • There's one last tiny little guy guarding the battery housing, and then the whole phone

  • can start to open.

  • The problem with opening up this phone is that the screen is semi clipped into the front

  • housing, and since there are no Lego connections holding the screen to the motherboard, I shredded

  • all the soldered ribbon cable between the two.

  • Kind of like how we saw on the World's Smallest Cellphone, except for I didn't break that

  • one.

  • The motherboard has the silver grounding tape all over it, but once that gets peeled back

  • we get our first look at the circular vibration motor and the even bigger loudspeaker sub-woofer

  • thing.

  • Remember that catchy little jingle that played when I turned the phone on?

  • [Weird song playing from phone.]

  • This speaker is probably the biggest speaker I've even seen inside of a cellphone.

  • The shaver motor, which is quite a bit bigger than the Nex S front camera motor, is soldered

  • directly onto the main board.

  • No Lego connectors anywhere inside of this phone, but there is an aluminum heat sink

  • on the back of the LED flashlight diode.

  • The thing is so powerful and bright that it needs it's own mini heat dissipation system,

  • which is actually super cool.

  • Thumbs up for that.

  • Let's see how the shaver portion works.

  • The top metal circular foils pop off allowing the insides to be clean.

  • But under those triangle pins is another trap door with massive white circular gears.

  • The big motor inside spins it's singular gear, which in turn rotates the two larger gears

  • attached to the bottom of each of those triangular silver posts.

  • Which then rotates the shaving mechanism underneath the circular metal foils.

  • Pretty brilliant.

  • We can snag a closer look at the under side of those foils.

  • You can see that the gaps in the foil are just big enough to let hair through, but not

  • big enough that the little metal twisty bits can snag on your skin.

  • The same basic principle applies to all shavers, it's just super interesting to see it here

  • on a cellphone.

  • I would put the whole thing back together again, but somebody accidentally ripped the

  • screen off and destroyed the ribbons.

  • So it's kind of incapacitated at the moment.

  • Still a super interesting phone though.

  • Grab your own $5 shaving kit from Dollar Shave Club using my code and link in the description.

  • With free shipping, it's cheaper than even your local grocery store.

  • Would you ever use a phone like this?

  • Let me know down in the comments, and then come hang out with me on Twitter and Instagram.

  • Thanks a ton for watching.

  • I will see you around.

  • [Phone playing weird song... again]
