    I don't make a move without watching his YouTube review. Is he in the Witness Protection Program ? Did Apple stiff him and not give him a phone? ET( Marquis) call home!!

    nobody does care anymore? latest reviews have been more like "blablabla" and there have been much better, deeper reviews.. i already forgot the guy.

    i dont say they are bad, but there are light and more words than actual info.

    I agree lately his reviews aren't that great. His got good effects and shots, but the review is not the best. His old stuff was better, and he's putting out videos so infrequently.

    He's been a little slow releasing videos over the past few months. Like someone else said, he's probably tied up with finishing up his studio and other projects.

    I personally just don't agree with him. He's clearly an Android guy at heart so many of his gripes with Apple products don't surprise me.

    He normally likes to use a phone for a full week first.

    I only watch his videos for the 4k video of the phones. His videos are very well put together, but his thoughts and reviews are very generic and not very in-depth.

    I believe Apple only sends pre-launch review units to the big publications (Verge, TC, NYT etc..), not YouTubers.

    His iPhone 7 hands on video was full of misinformation. I still enjoy his videos.

    well the best part is that he has been quite objective - android or iphone.

    one person i like the most she is Lisa Gade from Mobiletechreview... She has a good knowledge of tech but keeps it as simple that everyone can follow her and she is always testing the whole scenario of real life usage rather than only telling specs and benchmarks - specs can be read from the site of the manufacturer anyway...

    never been a fan of his videos. I enjoy the reviews of the other guys that he is kind of cliqued up with more.

    plus I've always felt he was an android guy, until a recent video where he said his main phone was an iphone.

    He usually takes a bit of time to get a full review done. Editing takes a huge amount of time when done correctly

    I like his channel but I'm actually a little surprised to see someone base a purchase decision on what he says. I always viewed him as a regular guy who hit the right formula, not a tech expert who pushes the limits of a product or offers unique information.

    (Note: Thats not a slam on him. I think that in general then there simply isn't much to say about any annually updated phone these days. Thats why most of the stories end up being about color options)

    He normally does an unboxing video first then a review few days later. I think we will have the unboxing video on Friday. Monday the full review.

    Apple probably didn't give him a review unit. He's not as big as the other publishers.

    Stopped watching his stuff. Slow uploads and stuff that don't interest me much like booster boards

    After I saw him cover up the speaker on the iPhone 5s with his finger and get upset that the "other speaker" didn't work, I stopped taking him seriously.

    Jonathan Morrison is better and more informative than Marques Brownlee.
