    Ha! Your review of the Pixel 4XL became a promo for the iPhone. Love it Gene!

  2. Timedog says:

    The iphone11 footage you showed looked like weird garbage.

  3. Sam Masghati says:

    LG has Log on its V-Series with unmatchable Video quality on a smartphone, you should check that out

  4. Bert Hubbard says:

    Did you really put all of your Potato magic into the video you recorded ?
    You could shoot cinematic footage on a crappy knockoff anything.

  5. Gurpreet Singh says:

    Potato jet can u do a vlog with poco f1 + gcam. U will be surprised bro

  6. Gordon Siu says:

    Is very bad

  7. Samuel Yamoah says:

    Didn't you say last time you were working on the Jeep that you'd go to a professional the next time? 😂

  8. THE MATT 222 says:

    Potato Jet gets a new jeep and modifies a bunch of stuff and complains about how long it is taking

  9. Yasen Georgiev says:

    First the iphone then the Pixel, i feel this is a paid Potato

  10. Coach John Lucas says:

    It took me two tries to get through this. Your content is always great, but audio and image quality made it really hard with the phone.

  12. DrNo0 says:

    Love pixel phones but they really need to work on the video part of it. I don't mind it so much because it don't record stuff on my phone

  13. ASMR show says:

    fair innit

  14. louay ben hamida says:

    you ll never get something free from google again x)

  15. George Holden says:

    I'm currently on a Pixel 2, and when using Filmic Pro for some reason the lens becomes wider? 😮

  16. meast703 says:

    Can we get a note 10 plus camera review

  17. David John Balce says:

    I think you should try an LG phone, they have controls for ISO, SS, focus with focus peaking, metering, aspect ratios, control for bit rate options, monitoring audio, low cut filters, and more. And also, they were one of the pioneers for the ultra wide angle videos. also, you could monitor through headphones by plugging in on a headphone jack which other phones are omitting..

  18. ChaoticMatters says:

    Photos are great. Video D:

  19. Chris Parayno says:

    Just meh as you said

  20. Chris Klugh says:

    You don't even know what it is and you want one? You make too much YouTube $$$

  21. Luka Trdina says:

    you can disable the stabilisation so the video will not be cropped and will actually be wider than the iphone

  22. lwazi Mcnite says:

    Wow. This is just fantastic.

  23. Mike Dancy says:

    who else was waiting for The Car Wizard from Hoovies Garage to come out and kick Genes ass when he started abusing his Jeep like that?

  24. Vaibhav Puranik says:

    Do zcam if possible.

  25. Youtube Channel says:

    That low light looks trash, looked like a cartoon. This phone is way too expensive to have such dated cameras on a 2019 phone. My iPhone 7 plus also shoots 4K30p and that was 3-4 years ago.

  26. Lee Entertainment Channel says:


  27. iComplainer says:

    Came for Potato Jet, stayed despite Pixel 4 absolute shit quality.

  28. Endy_plays says:

    well wow, pretty good but wtf is happening to the audio, keeps going from left channel to right channel and back

  29. Endy_plays says:

    for stills the pixel is better but for video the iphone is better, however i still prefer a dslr

  30. Endy_plays says:

    gene – ill go to a mechanic the next time
    gene the next time – ill go to a mechanic the next time
    gene the next next time – ill go to the mechanic the next time

  31. Endy_plays says:

    7:25 imagine gene as a rapper, just imagine it,

    and then try to go to sleep

  32. Endy_plays says:

    omg, 11:32 thats me wtf, THANK YOU GENE!

  33. wright96d says:

    Can you do a video comparing a RED to a ZCam full frame camera?

  34. Fiqri Rihyawan says:

    Mr Jet, can you pls use a green screen material rather than the paper that you tear apart every videos and becomes a waste ? I mean save the trees mah dude 🙁

  35. Island Voice TV says:

    Gene, Ill let you put my gladiator bumper on if you want. I have cash! I think that Red camera shoots 120fps in 4K.

  36. Amilkin Tejada says:


  37. Liam Hantos says:

    I got a pixel 4 ad before this video

  38. Liam Hantos says:

    My car came in the mail today

  39. Hassan Murtaza says:

    Google: Whoooaaa … we really do suck

  40. Dream Chasers says:

  41. shue xiong says:

    Looks like it was filmed with a potato. Which is kind of true because it was filmed by “a” potato. 😂

  42. Matt Dealy says:

    If red cameras counted as kids, you would have almost as many as Adam 😉

  44. MB Wedding Films - Wedding Videos & Storytelling says:

    Dude I love you! When you threw that tool set away I spat my water up. You are so funny, entertaining, and educational. I just started watching you like 2 weeks ago and love your content! Cheers!

  45. Professa says:

    just put the red sensor in your phone

    the dynamic range will go UP…

  46. Goest Forears says:

    i thought the hard drive is Jean-Claude Van Damme , look alike.

  47. Mind Of Milton says:

    Don’t care about the phone, but this sure is fun to watch! You sir know how to keep my attention.

  48. Nebulus says:

    You said you shoot all of your videos in 60 frames 😅😂

  49. Jerald says:

    Affordable Red Camera. That just doesn't sound right.

  50. Rob Mowe says:

    I'm reassured by your ability to give a realistic review despite being gifted the phone. Good work fella

  51. Maks says:

    Here I am on an old s3 listening to this cuz the video won't play but the audio is ;-;

    edit : i turned my laptop on to watch this and why does the whole party sequence feel like a movie? good job editing that Gene!

  52. Matteo Beshara says:

    Awesome, I was waiting for this! Thank you 🥔! ❤️

  53. Abdul Basit Khan says:

    This man works and gived his family quality time..hats off bro.

  54. Krishna Sagar says:

    Huawei Mate 30 Pro Vs RED Cinema Camera🔥🔥

  55. M A says:

    no 4k 60fps because it takes too much space? ok google

  56. Cpt Luna says:

    no giveaways ? just give it to me 🙂

  57. V Guerrilla says:

    Best still photography on any phone beating even the iPhone 11pro by a smidge sans ultrawide. But when it comes to video iPhone and Galaxy S10/Note 10 leave it in the dust.

  58. Sumon T says:

    Tell us about that RED. When.how.why.where.u get it?

  59. Vincent Sagita - Vince & Gadget says:

    hey gene, can you review a Z cam e2? seems like they are the most underrated camera. and compare it to your red camera… might be interesting.hhahha

  60. Radio Żelaza says:

    crappy performance in that lowlight indeed. Those fancy smartphones need more Night Video mode instead of Night Sight for stills

  61. Radio Żelaza says:

    Division of labor, opportunity cost, specialization – all important economic terms covered thanks to Google Pixel 4

  62. Davian Johnson says:

    Mr. Potato, you make video making look so easy.

  63. Robert Livingstone says:


  64. MVRCK . CO says:

    Hi Gene, have you seen Panasonic S1H, the first mirrorless approved by Netflix?

  65. vayen fly says:

    5:09 I'm really sure that's blue f-type is effspot car!

  66. Roald Joosen says:

    I was waiting for this review before buying the pixel 4! Unfortunately the quality is unbearable to watch… 🙁 Thnx potato, now I have to buy an iPhone…

  67. Tamim Abulhassan says:

    iPhone still takes to much out of the highlights and makes everything look flatter than the pixel

  68. J C Lovera says:

    3:04 PotatoJet

    3:07 PumpkinJet

  69. Donrngiew Sohlang says:

    Do the Note 10+ Pleaseee 😄😄

  70. Augustine Lungu says:


    Gene: Sorry Google but this phone sucks.

  71. Big Ern says:

    I love your channel I find you funny and relatable, just a regular guy not fake like most of the popular youtubers, like some you have hung with. That being said you being a film maker you can totally see the problems with the video but most I'd say 99 percent of people won't notice the issues you point out. I can't even tell the difference between 4k and 1080 unless your watching on a killer tv and most YouTube is viewed on phones tabs and laps so there's my 2cents maybe 1cent since I'm not a film maker. Keep bringing the content maybe I will win something someday.. ✌

  72. biocybernaut says:

    Google have missed the mark by a long shot.

  73. Jan-Hendrik Bussmann says:

    Safety glasses – check.

    Hand-holding a piece of metal while one-handedly using an angle grinder on it – DUDE, DON'T DO THAT!
    Are there any RED cameras for one-handed camera operators?

  74. biocybernaut says:

    What's the inspiration behind your Potato Jet branding?

  75. Ronald Craig says:

    A phone video from two years ago maybe? 😆

  76. Quiony Navarro says:


  77. LudaStrick says:

    You could have got the same type of tool kit at Home Depot for half the cost or Harbor Freight for even less.

  78. Amr Ale says:

    dude,love your work man and the dogs every time I laugh my self to self watching your videos.

  79. To Ni says:

    Love the orange and I would use it for mobile photography and basic photo editing, storage 😁

  80. PROGRAMISTA NA WAKACJACH - BackpackerDeveloper_com says:

    Was gonna buy this phone today but nah, quality sucks totally for vlogging. Gonna go for samsung or iphone 11.

  81. emma robertson says:

    well it keeps getting true that bigger sensors got better low light performances the rest being a question of the f-stop

  82. Ash Bash Sneakers says:

    Iphone contract is way too high for me to jump ship. I got a free upgrade from pixel xl 2 to 3 in Jan so I dunno what to do.. Pixel 4 xl is way cheaper but video doesn't look amazing. Nor does the 3 xl tbf. Not sure why Google has photos nailed but videos lackluster. I think vlogging is the only time a ultra wide makes sense for me

  83. christian adi says:

    I just love my xiaomi

  84. Zodiac says:

    What do you think about the camera on the galaxy note 10+

  85. shobhit chaudhry says:

  86. shobhit chaudhry says:

  87. X Jay 9 says:

  90. Warlock M says:

  91. Pep Arts says:

  92. Patrick Maberry says:

    My 2016 iPhone 7 looks better than this 2019 phone.

  93. 프리모PRIMO says:

    Can we get MI NOTE 10 camera review? I want to hear your thoughts. If you cannot get them there I will get them and send it to you.

  94. TankQ says:

    Woo ultrawide

  95. Farul M says:

    How about Mi Note 10??

  96. Zahid Ansari says:


  97. Sagor Mezba says:

    Plz compare it with your actual video camera Red or Alexa.

  98. James Lavish says:

    Yep, video is lacking, but the photos are stellar! Did you keep it??

  99. Karthig1987 says:

    Been using many google phones in a row and i can say that photos are always amazing but video wise they just dgaf for some reason. Year after year they just seem to be letting the gap with the top video quality phones get wider and wider.
