Youtube is flooded with celebrity state tech reviewers. I watch a lot of them. I learn a lot. But there’s a catch.
A new phone comes to market. They rush to do the ‘first-to-do’ unboxing and reviews. I found out all those new giga specs on paper that is celebrated , seldom translate in to durable performance, let’s say after 6 months.
So what we really need to watch is phone reviews after 6 months of usage. To do that, reviewers actually have to use a phone for 6 months. A rarity. There are plenty of reviews from not-celebrity tech enthusiasts. If you are frugal about your spending on phones, and you want good value, those reviews are your life savers.
I am so much happy with Galaxy Note 5, which still serves me well for more than 2 years. How did I make the decision? I watched a ‘Note 5 after 6 months review’ in Youtube, two years ago.
