Ray-Ban Meta Smart Glasses Review

 

 

I’m skeptical of smart glasses. I tested numerous pairs and even delved further into the category for a two-part mini-documentary a while back, not because the technology is impractical. Because of this, it’s not only that my pair of the $299 Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses had rose-colored lenses that made me impressed.

To be clear, there is nothing novel about the Ray-Ban Meta smart glasses. Modern smart glasses were first introduced to us in 2013 with the Google Glass Explorer Edition. Since then, a number of additional businesses—both large and small—have joined the bandwagon, including Snap, Bose, Razer, Epson, Amazon, and the now-defunct Focals by North.

With potato cameras, washed-out screens, ineffective voice assistants, and average mics, the majority were disappointing. It was difficult for me to picture the typical individual like them sufficiently to acquire a pair.

Several individuals I know have already purchased these.

I get why. These glasses look good. They officially come in 150 style variations across two frame styles, seven colors, and multiple lens options (including color, prescription, and transitions). The camera has been upgraded from 5MP to 12MP. Photo resolution has improved to 3024 x 4032 pixels, while videos are now 1080p at 30 frames per second. There are now five mics instead of one, so you sound better on calls. The speaker quality has also improved. It’s louder, with more bass, less audio leakage, and spatial audio support. They stuffed some AI in there, and you can now livestream to Facebook or Instagram. These are significant updates.

It’d be one thing if Meta failed to deliver, but like I said: I’m impressed. But that, in turn, has raised a lot of questions that I don’t have answers for. All I can say is whatever you think of Meta, these are a turning point for smart glasses.

The thing about smart glasses is that you’ll never wear a pair if they make you look like a low-rent Warby Parker model. Aside from the original Bose Frames, I’ve never really liked the way I’ve looked in smart glasses so far. That’s why it matters that these are Ray-Bans and come in more styles than typical smart glasses. While Wayfarers are considered to be universally flattering, rounder frames look better on me.

Most smart glasses come in tortoiseshell or black, and I’m tired of both, so I was happy that I could pick a round, transparent blue frame with pink lenses. They’re more my style, and while I wish the colors were more noticeable in darker lighting, I dug the extra pop of color in sunlight. I wore these in various scenarios: dolled up for a wedding, clad in functional but hideous running gear, bumming it in sweatpants, and rocking leather jackets. You name it — it goes with everything.

 Final Words

 

You should think about the kind of photos you wish to shoot when selecting a phone with a camera. A lengthy zoom would be useful if you enjoy capturing nature shots or if you are a sports photographer who frequently captures amateur or professional athletes. If the majority of your images are of yourself and your friends, an excellent all-around camera is preferable. Although the greatest camera phones can be pricey, we also have affordable options if money is a big concern.

How Samsung’s top-tier Galaxy S24 Ultra stacks up against Apple’s priciest non-folding phones

The most expensive phone in the company’s range, the $1,300 (£1,249, AU$2,199) Galaxy S24 Ultra from Samsung boasts numerous new artificial intelligence technologies in addition to camera improvements.

Not only is it the most costly non-folding flagship phone on the market right now—it costs $100 more than the entry-level model from the previous year. The $1,200 Galaxy S23 Ultra and the $1,200 Apple iPhone 15 Pro Max.

But for that amount, you get the most powerful phone specifications and a camera that probably specializes in taking close-up, detailed zoom shots. The S24 Ultra boasts a big 6.8-inch AMOLED display, the most recent Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 engine, and a 200-megapixel main camera that is now paired with a 50-megapixel telephoto sensor.

 

While we won’t be able to test these specifications on a daily basis until our evaluation of the Galaxy S24 Ultra is complete, we can contrast them with the priciest models that other flagship phone manufacturers have to offer.
