I mean i’ll, be straight up honest everyone i’ve! I got nothing. I’M spent all right, usually i try and come up with some sort of big idea of something that could possibly resemble an introduction to these little weekly neutral things this week, nah, you know behind the curtain of it i’m literally drinking pints of black coffee. Just to try and keep upright right now, to be honest, oh god, like this week’s already been busy enough with you know your samsung launchers and all that other shenanigans. But next week jesus christ, man next week is going to be busier than a northern clap clinic. We are talking literally launches every single day, sometimes multiple launches in a day which is always lovely, so apologies um. If you think i’m something a bit unhinged this week, just wait till next week, hey we’ve got lots to get through so let’s crack on with the show jingle be mofos expert weekly, so starting with samsung, who had the biggest phone launch of the week whipping out Its fresh new, affordable, a series smartphones, the a52, the a52 5g and the a72 all designed to take on the likes of those pixels and the oneplus node. Now the most affordable of this samsung trio, the galaxy a52, the bog standard, one it suddenly isn’t coming to the uk. It is coming to europe, though, for 349 euros, so you should be able to import it fairly easily. If you want that one.
Otherwise, you can spunk up ‘9 quid for the galaxy a52 5g. Like i did. You can check out my unboxing, which went live yesterday, uh otherwise it’s 419 quid for the a72, quite a nice price overall. So, unlike those galaxy s21 phones, hopefully you won’t have to kick out gran’s gold teeth just to afford one design wise. They all look very similar with skinny bezels and a selection of bright colors to choose from you’ve got awesome. Violet awesome black awesome, white and awesome blue awesome, the a52 duo or 6.5 inches. But if that isn’t big enough for you, the year 72 may prove more satisfying at 6.7 inches, and i know which one your mum would like. She likes a big, your mom, Music and they’re, also ip67 water and dust resistant, which is a pretty rare feature at this price point. So fair play sammy all three samsung sport, a super amoled display you’ve got 90 hertz refresh for the lte models and a 120 hertz upgrade for the a52. 5G you’ve also got stereo speakers on all three and uh uh. Sorry, i just got massively distracted by those. Incredibly penile plants there like seriously i’m, not the only one seeing this right – that is, some proper flora dong action right there now you’ve got a 4 500 milliamp battery, stuffed into those ear: 52 phones and that’s upgraded to a 5 000 milliamp battery on the a72 And samsung reckons that that means you’ll get two days of battery life between charges.
Uh personally, i think you’ve probably got more chance of pulling in a nunnery, but there you go we’ll, see oh and good news. You do actually get a charger in the box. You’Ve got a corded camera set up on all three of these blowers, including a 64 megapixel primary shooter with built in ois you’ve also got a 12 megapixel ultra wide angle, shooter uh, hoo boy, a macro lens, of course, because why not and then a basic depth Sensor on the a52 forms, but the a72 replaces that, with a telephoto lens with three times optical zoom, nice you’ve also got popular semi features like the pro video mode, trickling down to these a holes where you’ll also get a bit of 4k video snap to grab. Eight megapixel stills from your footage. As for the software well standard stuff, it’s samsung’s one ui slapped over the top of a bit of android 11, but samsung is also offering a minimum of four years of security updates with all of these phones, which is proper, solid and what’s that you want more Sexy specs right in your face all right: okay, well, all three ear: series: phones, pack up to 256 gigs of storage, plus one terabyte micro sd support; and while the bog standard a52 offers four six or eight gigs of ram, the others come with a minimum of Six, so all in all, very impressive tech for the price, as i say, i’ve already unboxed.
The a52 5g, which i spunked up for yesterday, so check that out for an in depth, look at all of those specs and features and i’m hoping to give it a full review soon and hopefully get that a72 featured as well. Now the realme 8 pro launcher is coming next week, like every freaking other launch ever, but i have had a chance to share a sneak peek of this fresh new budget form with you lovely lot this week i did have to keep stump on most of the Specs, but i did get to show off the rather bold design and i’ve, also tested out that 108 megapixel rear camera. Of course, the killer question here is: is the real me 8 pro a true rival? Can it stand up tall against xiaomi’s, redmi, note 10 pro, which is easily my favorite budget smartphone that’s launched in 2021 so far? Well, my full in depth. Realme 8 pro review will be going live on wednesday when that embargo. Finally, buggers off so grab onto your nuts or your other preferred snack of choice and join me for some more real me fun times. Oh much needed sustenance right um. So you may remember earlier in the week i put live a big sony. Xperia 5 mark ii, competition went live on wednesday uh. That competition has now come to an end i’m going to randomly select a winner from all of those twitter replies. Thank you very much to everyone who entered and the winner is harleen quinn at holler, quinlan.
Uh. Congratulations: holly you’ve just won yourself an xperia 5 mark ii, smartphone uh clamp to attach it to your jewelry short controller, assuming you’ve got a dual shock controller and a shag load of call of duty mobile points. So hopefully you play a better call of duty. Mobile i’m, just going to take a snapshot of that and uh. I will hit you up on the twitters and we’ll arrange for sony to ship out your price to you great stuff, okay, so moving along now, it’s time for the part of the short regrettably that’s about as pointless as a friggin macro lens it’s time for viewer Comments fewer comments. First up is carrot. Cruncher, who says why am i getting pampers ads on this video? I guess it’s, all the talk about space men themselves, uh yep sounds about right. I mean targeted ads, got ta, love them right. I’Ll. Tell you what you can really tell that you’re getting all based on the kind of advert you see, popping up on the channels that you choose to watch uh, so i quite enjoy uh kicking back, relax and with the occasional bit of 80s music channel action. Maybe, on a friday or saturday night after i’ve had a few booskies, i can’t believe i called them a few brewskis. What am i friggin? 18 year old, frat boy? You know the passage of time is definitely well mapped out by those things because you’ve got these super cool uh.
You know young, hip, 80s bands and stuff and then, as soon as the outbreak hits it’s all viagra pills and ultra absorbent underwear. So basically, the consensus is, if you’re old enough to still enjoy 80s music chances. Are you can’t get it up anymore and you probably piss your pants every time you so much just pick up a heavy bag of shopping, owned, hair loss, ads don’t think i haven’t noticed the abundance of hair loss ads and also been very, very tempted uh back To the comments uh and, of course, after requesting last week that people who live in lovely, gorgeous hot sunny countries right on the coast, possibly don’t, gloat about that in the comments uh. What, predictably, do you lovely bunch go and do yes cheers very much your merry band of bastards, especially considering how many freakish rainstorms i’ve been caught in this last week, or so the uk man ugh all out of coffee. That is not a good situation uh. So, for instance, george lennox, a britain, san diego apparently, oh god, damn i used to actually live in san diego for a hot moment as well literally a hot moment. Just it’s got everything you won’t mind: it’s got the gorgeous weather lovely beaches and that mexican food, oh now, you’re just a hop skip and a jump from disneyland and universal stuff, which i absolutely adore as a massive theme park nerd and they go on and on Adam is apparently watching from nairobi goodbye kenya, action very nice uh ashley over in south africa, paolo in portugal.
What can i say, except i hate you all, but i also love you for watching this uh so yeah. My brain is aching from conflict and emotions. Uh. Next up john kerr says when you visit canada – oh thank god. Somebody who lives in a cold shitty country, i will fill you full of good canadian liquor, uh yeah um. Last time i was there, i had moose. I think it was cool. That was something generic. Like moose or a mountain, it was basically like boozy maple syrup. I very much got on board with that. Definitely, and also i would 100 rank poutine as one of the best post pub snacks out there absolutely love that stuff. Just all of the meat and cheese on my chips, please it’s definitely right up there with parma ham and, of course, the good old trusty kebab ben jones says none of that warm weather compares to the lovely cold norfolk coast – oh indeed, i’ve holidayed there. Many a time many fond memories of a good bit of chroma action, catching crabs of the seafood variety next up, uh ch, chizzy, jizzy, uh, sorry, i’m, probably completely pronouncing that wrong. Uh says i’m from the netherlands. What do you think about that country? Um yeah? Definitely a big fan, you know, can’t beat a bit of uh a bit of windmill action. You know i don’t smoke myself, but i definitely approve of the chilled out vibe and everything there, and also the way that you absolutely drench, i mean drown your chips in me and ears, which i’m also a fan of i’ve, also got a finnish fan in the House as well fake, ninja, hello, fake ninja, says uh love your energy videos, not so serious, but still serious stuff in them.
Huge love from finland. You know i’m, not gon na lie. I know absolutely zero about finland other than the fact that michael palin sang a song about it once in an episode of monty python, uh and that’s, not a knock on the country that’s, just my complete ignorance. Basically, you know what okay let’s do: a new segment fresh and new for this week on textbook weekly, five fun, finland, facts, five, fun, finland, facts, there’s, actually, quite a few uh websites here with uh fun, finland, facts so yeah god bless the internet, it’s good. For more than just horrific graphic porn uh every october, the 13th is the annual celebrated day of failure where people honor their ups and misfortunes. Chris, i need more than a day maid. I need about a fortnight all right, here’s, a related finn, fun. In fact, finn: fun, finland, off here’s, facts, number, two uh, apparently, finland, created and horse the international mobile phone throwing world championships uh any phone over 220 grams is legal, so that’s pretty much any out there these days, oh god, and guess what as well the prize For the winner of the mobile phone thrawn, competition is a new mobile phone. Of course it is. Oh, you know what just don’t bother entering just go and stand in the field where everyone’s hurrying their mobile phones and then pick one up. Job done i’m kind of tempted, though i’d love to enter that i would hoie the living out of an iphone okay, fun finish fact: three one of the country’s most popular pizza toppings, includes smoked reindeer jesus christ.
I mean just don’t tell we timmy that he’s munching on a slice of rudolph’s ass cause that might slightly up his christmas fun fin fact. Four, apparently, the finnish love their coffee. The average finn consumes 12 kilos of ground coffee every single year and finally fun. Finnish fact number five uh, the undisputed home of heavy metal is finland. It’S got the most metal bands per capita of any country on earth. I mean i should have bloody known this, because i do like a bit of metal, so i’m kind of ashamed. To be honest, you’ve got children of boredom amorphous all that good stuff. You know what i am 100 old. I swear to christ i’m, moving to finland. After reading these fun finnish facts, i want to eat reindeer pizza and snort coffee and mush out, while watching crazy. Morphos, just chucking their mobile phones about sounds great anyway. I don’t know if it’s all of the excitement of the fun finnish facts or the fact that i’ve drunk about two liters of coffee in the past 20 minutes, but i really need the toilet. So a quick break, oh saw so much better. All right! Where were we uh back to the comments? Um martin 1994 says i’m half pissed watching this and it’s fantastic i’m. Never watching this again when i’m sober it’s, so much better uh christ. Do people actually watch this when they’re sober, i really hope not uh. Next up rain royal flames says i’d rather watch this than study.
For my final exams, um i mean look me. I don’t want to be held responsible if anyone flunking out of school so get cracking those books, young whippers snapper. Otherwise you might end up a wastrel youtube. Like myself, uh tommy says ant’s. Looking rough without deck smiley face, uh cheers man, yeah it’s, the adoring fans that i do this for, of course, uh next up, reno badge banger, not sure how to pronounce it. Sorry, uh, probably completely mauled it uh says: hey chris how’s it going mates. Have you got any news on when sony will be releasing any more mid range phones? Well, hopefully, really soon, i’m expecting sony to uh, officially announce uh a big launch event, probably in april maybe early may uh, but certainly should be so news. Usually they would have done a launch by now there’s been no official news, but yeah. You can expect the xperia one mark iii and a whole bunch of new uh phones, including the xperia 10s, and probably a new l series to come, knocking uh on on your door, whatever. That means what sorry i don’t know: what’s going off my brain uh today, i’ve, basically given up on life, is what’s happening. Uh, steve lbmk says you’re working so hard you’re making me feel tired. I thank you for the sacrifice that you and your liver are making on our behalf. I mean that’s, basically what i’m here for pounding back the booze and reviewing every single freaking motor or the smartphone that comes flying at us, because i love you all so much.
Uh next up, fh manor says: what do you do besides review and tech i’m? Not not a whole bloody heap right now, to be perfectly honest, now that we are tainted deep in smartphone launch season uh, but of course, long term viewers will know i’m a bit of an anime geek i’m busy smashing through a bit of manga as well i’m. Actually uh most of the way through akira. This bad boy is what i’m on right now akira pot five of six uh big, weighty tone, but you do fly through them pretty fast because to be fair, they are mostly just pictures and besides that i’m also a big fan of internet porn, uh axel mulder, Says the most sexy sophisticated smirk and tech youtuber out there i’m. Definitely one of those things that’s for sure uh. He says: keep up the great videos anytime soon that we can expect to see an oppo find x3 lite video well uh, it’s funny. You mentioned that because look what just turned up literally before i started: shooting this video one of many smartphones that arrived on my doorstep this week and it’s considerably cheaper, of course, than the oppo f5x3 pro, but still bought some pretty decent specs and features i’m. Hoping to get this unboxed uh, probably after i shoot this bloody video to be perfectly honest, who needs sleep right, um, so yeah so expect uh content on that, hopefully, in the next sort of day or so uh next up david ashmore says: will you be replacing Piers morgan on the sofa next week, i do doesn’t that it started like 6 a.
m or something and that’s just not happening. They’D have to literally let me sleep under the desk in the studio in like a sleeping bag. Otherwise yeah i’m not going to be there. You know i probably do talk just as much bollocks as piers uh does so yeah i’m expecting the call any day now, basically uh and anyway i’ve gone massively over time as usual to make this last one. For this week, uh booster says can’t, forgive sunderland and dennis smith for 1990 from a beleaguered swindon fan, i mean that’s, not really sunderland’s fault was it unless we actually cooked your books for you on the slide in order to win ourselves, uh guaranteed promotion, which would Be a hell of a blinder. Actually, nothing really helped that much, because i think the following season we busy just shut ourselves, went straight back down again typical and i’m, not even kidding a motorbike courier is just turned up outside with another smartphone. For me, most uh likely so better wrap this up. So big thanks to everyone who commented last week much much appreciated. Please do stop your comments down below and i’ll try and smash through as many of those as possible at the end of a frankly horrific week. Next week, in fact, looking at my schedule makes me want to cry uh so monday, we’ve got some poco shenanigans going on expect a full unboxing and hands on. Are there tuesday, oneplus 9 series launch so there’ll be shag loads of content coming right at your face wednesday realme 8 pro launch, of course, so full review.
Coming that day, thursday we’ve got a moderate launch, yay uh, so we’re expecting the new g100 to be announced. Then and then friday, if i haven’t drunk myself into a grave already, there will be another episode of textbird weekly episode 55. I believe we’re cracking through now. So, thank you very much for watching this show if you haven’t done so already. Please do poke subscribe and ding the notification bell. Some of the videos i do aren’t quite as bad as this one. I promise and more importantly, have yourselves a fan freakingtastic weekend and hopefully see you next week. Cheers everyone love.
