  • So, y'all ready for a little video?

  • This little guy is the world's smallest mobile phone.

  • And believe it or not, it works with both phone calls and, get this, it can also send

  • text messages using a little something us old people remember as multi-tap on a 9 number

  • keypad.

  • Yeah, it was a real thing, and yeah, we actually used it.

  • The phone is cute...but, is it durable?

  • Let's find out.

  • [Intro]

  • This minuscule cellular device is from a company called Zanco.

  • And as we know, any name that starts with “Z” is a good name.

  • It's a little bit smaller than a double A battery, and it's about twice as long as the

  • iPhone X's camera bump.

  • It's kind of ridiculous how small this thing is.

  • If you stick it in your pocket you might forget it's even there, like a tube of chap-stick

  • going through the laundry.

  • I've seen pieces gum that are bigger than this phone.

  • But like always, we're here to test things out and see if they work.

  • Let's call my mom.

  • [Phone ringing]

  • [Voicemail: “Sorry to miss you, leave a message.

  • Thanks.”]

  • And...she sent me to voicemail.

  • But she also sent me my first text message.

  • It took me a second to figure our how to actually get to the texting menu since it's so small.

  • But she said, “I'll call you right back.”

  • Look at that – 2005 all over again.

  • Well we'll cross our fingers that she actually remembers and calls back, because phones don't

  • always survive all the way through my videos.

  • Like always, we'll start with the scratch test.

  • Normally we have a lot more screen real estate, but it's okay, I can write as small as I need

  • to on this phone for ants.

  • For reference, plastic scratches at a level 3, glass scratches at a 6, and sapphire would

  • be an 8 or 9.

  • But judging by the marks we get at the level 3, and deeper grooves at a level 4, this .4

  • inch screen is made from plastic.

  • The buttons do speak to you, which is interesting.

  • [Phone saying numbers.]

  • Makes it nice that you can leave your magnifying glass at home when you're out and about.

  • The buttons are made from plastic.

  • Not a big deal since realistically, I don't think anyone is going to be texting novels

  • on this thing.

  • The sides are made from plastic.

  • No volume buttons, but there is a rubber flap protecting the modern micro SIM card slot.

  • I'm sure they would have also added a fingerprint scanner if the whole phone wasn't the size

  • of a fingerprint.

  • The bottom has a slightly outdated micro USB port.

  • This is a lot like peeling a baby carrot...except for it's black instead of orange, and probably

  • doesn't taste very good.

  • The top of the phone has no headphone jack, but I'll give it a pass since I'm pretty sure

  • there is legitimately no room this time around.

  • The phone is basically the size of a headphone jack as it is.

  • There is a lanyard slot up at the top though, if you wanted to wear it as a necklace or

  • earrings or something.

  • My mom would be pretty mad if I got my ears pierced though, so I'll skip that one.

  • Speaking of which, I got to text her back so let's give this a try.

  • Luckily, texting on an iPad is kind of like riding a bike, and you never really forget

  • how.

  • For the kids who aren't old enough to remember the good old days, let me explain how this

  • worked.

  • You press the key that contains the letter you want, and then keep pressing that key

  • until the letter you need cycles through.

  • Then you can continue to the next letter and repeat the process.

  • Yeah, it took me a minute and a half to write the wordscall me,” but times were simpler

  • back in the day, and we were usually too busy to text people anyway...doing crazy things

  • like going outside and stuff.

  • Oh hey, look, it's my mom!

  • [Mom] Hello?

  • [Zack] Hi, can you hear me?

  • [Mom] Uh huh.

  • It sounds like you're on speaker phone or something, but I can hear you.

  • [Zack] We are currently talking on the world's smallest cell phone.

  • [Mom] Oh!

  • Wow, it's not bad!

  • [Zack] Yeah, there's a speaker...there's a loud speaker on the back and then a couple

  • little microphones.

  • And it's a little bit smaller than my thumb.

  • [Mom] Ummm, and so this is the only way it can sound?

  • [Zack] Yeah, there's no better way.

  • How does it sound on your end?

  • [Mom] Sounds a lot like a speaker phone.

  • [Zack] Alright, I think that should work.

  • Okay, I will see you tomorrow.

  • And there you have it.

  • It sounds like a speakerphone on the other end, probably because speakerphone is the

  • only option with this thing.

  • And now for the burn test.

  • This .4 inch 64x32 pixel display is protected by the outer layer of plastic.

  • So we don't see any damage done to the actual inner screen.

  • But the outer shell starts literally melting after about 11 seconds.

  • It's a pretty hot mess of distorted plastic.

  • I highly recommend not using a lighter on your cell phone.

  • The thing gets lit.

  • I don't know if you've ever tried to break a Jolly Rancher in half, but the laws of physics

  • have basically the same effect on this nub of a cellphone.

  • There's not enough surface area to even grip.

  • Even though it only weighs 13 grams, the little guy is as solid as a pebble.

  • You know that little tiny pocket inside the bigger pocket of your jeans?

  • I feel like this phone was literally made for that tiny pocket.

  • On this channel the phrase 'in depth reviews' is taken pretty literally.

  • So let's dive a little deeper inside this minuscule device.

  • With no visible screws, I knew the teardown would be pretty simple.

  • I mean, how hard can it be to get inside an SD card sized phone?

  • Turns out it's the face plate that comes off first, revealing a plastic outer layer and

  • a rubberized keypad underneath it, just like we've seen in some of the older Nokia phones.

  • I did forget the essential step of turning off the phone first.

  • There are no Lego connectors holding the screen in place.

  • This is soldered directly onto the motherboard.

  • I'll turn the phone off and then proceed to lift the motherboard out of the peanut-sized

  • housing, being careful with the black and red wires dangling from the rest of the components.

  • The little battery comes out with the whole contraption at the same time.

  • The battery is a 190 milliamp hour little guy.

  • Just 10 milliamps smaller than the Apple watch.

  • Supposedly this is enough capacity to last three days on a single charge.

  • On the back of the motherboard we have the micro SIM card tray, the bottom microphone,

  • and the micro USB charging port, along with the 2G antennas.

  • Not bad for a phone you might accidentally swallow during a phone call.

  • How long do you think you would actually last using this phone?

  • Yeah, it can text and make phone calls, and the keyboard lights up, but could you actually

  • use it for any amount of time?

  • Let me know in the comments.

  • Hit that subscribe button if you haven't already.

  • There are plenty more in-depth reviews coming your way.

  • Thanks a ton for watching.

  • I'll see you around.

So, y'all ready for a little video?
