  • The Banana phoneslipping into the niche fruit themed phone market next to Apple and

  • BlackBerry.

  • It's time to see if this newcomer can hold it's own during a durability test.

  • The box saysTalk more, smile more, and save the gorillas.”

  • I wasn't planning on saving any gorillas this morning, but this phone just talked me into it.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • Inside the box we get some instruction booklets, the Banana phone itself, and a micro USB charging

  • cable.

  • Pretty simple design so far.

  • My Banana has 3 buttons and is about the same size as a real banana, which I've included

  • here for scale.

  • Apparently by buying this phone, 1% of the sales are donated to Gearing up for Gorillas,

  • an organization working out of the Congo.

  • So that's kind of cool.

  • Grabbing my Mohs picks, there is no screen on this contraption, mostly because it works

  • exclusively through Bluetooth and acts as a wireless Bluetooth headset for your current

  • phone.

  • The whole thing appears to be made from yellow plastic - up here by the earpiece as well

  • as the stem is all plastic.

  • The yellow buttons are also made from plastic, and the rest of the shaft down here next to

  • the microphone is plastic.

  • It's literally now possible to pair a Banana with an Apple via Bluetoothand if that's

  • not the future, I don't know what is.

  • Peeling the Banana down at the bottom near the micro UBS charging port reveals more plastic.

  • I can see why the box saidDo not eat”.

  • You'd have to be bananas to eat this Banana, because going bananas means...yeah...right.

  • But is the Banana structural?

  • That is what we've all come here to find out.

  • Gripping the tropical fruit with both hands and flexing the construction reveals a solid

  • build quality.

  • There is some creaking along the outer plastic peel, but the Banana remains solid and intact.

  • I would not worry about keeping this Banana in your pocketunlike a real banana which

  • would definitely not be safe in your pants.

  • Here in the United States bananas are usually eaten raw, but in other parts of the world

  • there is a member of the banana family called Plantains that is fried and is surprisingly

  • delicious.

  • My lighter doesn't cook this Banana real good, but I'll include a recipe in the description

  • if you want to make some real plantains for yourself.

  • You're currently watching a grown man play with a banana.

  • Let that sink in for a second, and figure out what life decisions got you to this point

  • and then let's keep going.

  • It's time to take this Banana apart and review it from the inside.

  • The Banana has no visible exterior screws but does have a nice seam along the outside

  • that allows the Banana to peel in half, getting our first look inside.

  • And I'll be honest, there's quite a lot of wasted space in here.

  • There is plenty of room for wireless charging or even a headphone jack.

  • This is not an efficient Banana at all.

  • Curious enough though, there are 2 Phillips head screws holding down a large block of

  • solid metal.

  • People generally associate weight with quality, so adding a metal banana core, while decreasing

  • nutritional value, would indeed provide a false sense of quality and substance.

  • A nice little trick there Banana maker.

  • There are 4 screws holding down the motherboard to the Banana peel.

  • There is no water proofing inside the Banana but there is a lot of hot glue holding in

  • all the components.

  • It's a very inexpensive, yet effective construction technique.

  • Up top we have the largest earpiece I've ever seen inside of a phone, held in place by the

  • same hot glue we see everywhere else.

  • It's hard wired to the motherboard just like the microphone down at the bottom of the Banana.

  • Repairability wasn't high on the priority list during the Banana design process...no

  • Lego connections anywhere.

  • I was finally able to pop the charging port out of the device, but not before it snapped

  • in half rendering my Banana un-chargeable in the future.

  • But at least we got to see the insides.

  • The battery is a 450 milliamp hour, which gives this Banana about 10 hours of talk time.

  • Apple's usually have closer to 14 hours of talk time, and finally Apple beat another

  • phone at something.

  • Thumbs up for that.

  • The 3 buttons are all injection molded into one piece.

  • Overall I would have to say that the Banana shape is a great form factor for a cellphone.

  • It has a nice curve to itway better than something round like an orange...or this carrot.

  • I love carrots.

  • Do you like carrots?

  • What's your favorite fruit?

  • Do you think Banana phones are going to be the next big thing?

  • Let me know in the comments.

  • If you want a Banana phone of your own, I'll put a link down in the video description.

  • And thanks a ton for watching.

  • I will see you around.
