      I can't really blame you though.
      I wish companies finished and perfected products so that reviewers could speak honestly about them.

    Love your transparency! Hope you guys don't get much backlash from telling the truth...bullies will be bullies! I can't believe that these companies don't ask you for permission or even pay you for your quotes or using your content! Meanwhile they cry bloody murder if anyone did the same with their content!

      @Gabry well I mean that's true but a lot of people work low paying jobs and can't afford to be led to the wrong investments. Having non-skewed reviews of a product is very valuable and is something you can't say for a lot of tech youtubers.

    Thank you for speaking up about misinformation and manipulation it’s truly a factor for the negativity and misery that drives life. However, we should also be able to reflect and take responsibility for our own actions. If the goal is telling the truth then “say what you mean and mean what you say”. Don’t write a thumb nail that highlights a positive connotation. Impact is always greater than intentions. It’s one thing to take something out of context during a full conversation or video it’s another to put a one sentence title “best phone ever” and expect someone to think maybe there’s more to this sentence in the video. Just saying if I was a reviewer I’d have have to complete with a attention catching hook for views or telling the truth and dealing with the consequences. My Thumb nail would be ie. “The new iPhone, cool new features but same old design” this highlights my best and worst impressions of the product.

      Not to mention his "Rick-rolling" mastery.
      In all seriousness, he (and MKBHD) are the go-to source for quality reviews. I only wish he would learn that tele-lenses are great, but what do you expect form an urban-hipster, he probably doesn't know that small and great tits also come in flocks, not just pairs.

    What you are sharing boils down to trust. A short story from a different angle: I was an engineer for a start-up back in 2001. We had a box that supported all types of traffic over the Internet using Asynchronous Transfer Mode--a popular backbone transport back then. I flew to Dallas to do a "bake off" with the top five competitors and came out on top (and not by a small margin either). These tests were performed in front of a top magazine writer and one other person operating the test gear. I was soon on the phone with our Marketing lead after the published article had pronounced the #2 competitor as the winner. I fell out of my chair when the writer unabashedly admitted that a steak dinner and small gifts, among other things, was all we had needed to garner his favor. Had I not heard it with my own ears, I would have assumed that someone had simply had sour grapes with the outcome. Were you in the telecom biz back then and I told you the name of the magazine, it would put you in your seat. Since then I have been very skeptical about all technology rags.

    The cynic in me believes that even "tell-all" videos like this can work in favour of big tech companies: we now see these two reviewers as more trustworthy because of their candour, hence we're more likely to trust any subsequent reviews from them. Take everything with a healthy pinch of salt

    That mock trailer was expertly crafted, especially since I've seen most of the actual reviews they came from. Props to the editor for cementing exactly how opinions can not just be guided, but straight up misled with some simple editing tricks and restrictions. It's really important to use reviews as a supplementary opinion, but to think for yourself and do your own research and even personal testing in person.

    XEETECHCARE Year ago +34552

    FINALLY someone said it. Most Clip-Sharers would be afraid to say the truth in fear of being blacklisted by the brand so if there was someone that could do this video, it had to be Arun & Marques. The 2 Kings of Tech. You speak for all of us. Hope to see a positive change in the future! ♥️

      Reviewing a product sourced from the open market is always better than reviewing a manufacturer's sample. Happily for us, our reviewer has the resources to buy everything and anything. Less endowed Clip-Sharers cannot and are dependent on access to samples.

    I love this video! It's time these things were said. I just wish you guys would've gone a step further, by agreeing that you would no longer abide by or agree to manufacturer terms that set the stage for consumers being misled. For example, if you believe that a phone is an incredible piece of hardware, but already know the software is crap, please don't make a video hyping us up on the hardware. A lot of us will go out and preorder based on those initial seemingly positive reviews. Or at a bare minimum, give us STRONG warnings to not buy yet, and wait until the second video drops so we can get the full picture. Unless some of you big dogs start taking a stand, these abusive practices will just continue and grow.

  • Liron Segev
    Liron Segev Year ago +3228

    Awesome breakdown. There is one more factor: Micro-Influencers. While it's great that brands are including smaller creators, micro-influencers tend to be super enthusiastic about products from big brands and they tend to do multiple videos which usually lean on the positive side. The brand gets a flood of content across a sustained period of time and the creator gets the views. This is especially true if it's a paid-for collaboration.

      @Rita 25 y.o - check my vidéó Considering they both still do showcases on their devices, I wouldn't go that far. It's a basic call out and that's it. Making sure the public has some clue about what's happening but even as big as they are, they can't afford to actually take such a solid moral stance to say "Fix this shit or GTFO". For the large companies, they lose a bit of exposure but there will always be someone morally bankrupt enough to work with them. The sad truth is, there's always someone out there shady enough to do what someone else won't and companies like this thrive on that fact.

      No shade to Arun and Marques as I would presume they’re successful outside of Clip-Share. But what I’m understanding is that, this particular content is fitting now (vs. back then) as these two have pretty much achieved or capitalized and have nothing to lose at this point…? (Please correct if I’m wrong)

      @Isaac Ong They can post as many videos as they want. If they wanted they could milk the first impressions into a short video focusing on one tiny aspect for every day until the second embargo is up or they can wait until after the second embargo and make one long video compiling the first impressions as well as the full review so they can cover everything in one go. The downside to only making a single video after the second video for content creators is it gives the false impression that they're behind with the times, that they aren't privy to certain information, they don't receive the devices ahead of time and can lead to less committed or attentive viewers opting to watch a different tech reviewer instead and there's always going to be someone willing to play into the companies' hands so they can get the views

Particularly with more collabs with MKBHD. You guy's both produce such awesome tech stuff. It's really an absolute masterclass of presentation and cinematography that adds a huge level of professionalism and is much appreciated.

    Wow. I never knew about this. This is the level of honesty we expect from Clip-Sharers! I mean I honestly never realised all of this... it's made me realise how we really can't trust anything we hear on the internet without looking into it... and it's quite terrifying how these big tech companies are manipulating people... I guess it's become so normalised now that not many people realise the truth about this.

      @matewut no one else is talking about it because it's not being brought up fool! Hahaha we've never of this before so that's justification of what no one is talking about it moron. You're not even referring to the same video, check the top phones of 2020 do you need a link to that? Again you want links to cgtn? Check the dates of when Huawei was banned and match up those videos from state propaganda and his and they're the same. He also praised Xiaomi for being some magical company who came out of nowhere as if they were hard working when really they just received all the support of the Chinese government once Huawei got shut down. Yes some things he absolutely can't defend like saying Huaweis foldable is good, but he did praise it to some extent trying to say the outside fold was a better system. Okay you're not a CCP troll fair enough, but your ignorance on his propaganda doesn't prove it's existence. You want just one link and that will shit you up and make you say I'm right? Is that correct. Please reply yes and I'll get it for you big dog. Oh wait you've already stated that he makes thousands of videos hahaha and that he's bound to have some mistakes or coincidences, like parroting Chinese state propaganda consistently is a coincidence hahaha. And thousands? If he uploads twice a week for a year which doesn't seem to be the case but if so then that's 100 videos in one year. He would have to have been doing that consistently twice a week for 10 years to get to a thousand videos, so you're pretty off on that. No he can't get away with just saying Xiaomi is better than apple, google, and Samsung. But it's called salami slicing, where you cut just a little at a time over a long period of time where you start to say, yeah Apple, Google, and Samsung have horrible business practices, without even mentioning that the Chinese brands have THE ABSOLUTE WORST BUSINESS PRACTICE BECAUSE THEYRE RAN BY AN OPPRESSIVE AUTHORITATIVE COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT! You lose bro. Either way you lose. You and mrwhosethecommunist.

    The exclusive interview is not really a scam, I mean celebrities go on talk shows to promote their movies or music all the time and it’s a win win. No one expects the host to point out the negative of the movies either. If you want high profile people on your channel to boost your views and subscription, you can’t call them out for wanting to promote their products.

      Yet ironically he was sponsored by Oneplus to show off the Nord CE, and he manipulated his fans by making the phone sound so great at just because of the hardware. And he’s mislead his fans about the Exynos 2100 vs Snapdragon 888 with mediocre benchmarks such as Antutu, and again acting like the difference is so big.

    When it comes to the embargo's, I'm actually wondering if there's any legal basis for it. If you break the embargo, can there be legal action? Is it just about being blacklisted?
    I do remember hearing something about this for games (I think). Is it because these reviews happen before the official release of the product?

  • CallMeDera- Rediscoveringme

    Amazing video. Really nice to speak up. However, it is understandable that companies want to protect their years of hardwork and resources. Take for example, a slightly biased reviewer or even an unbiased reviewer making negative comments about a newly released gadget. It's easier to sit at a place and make a video than organising all factors of production involved in making a new tech gadget (idea and innovative approaches included).
    This cuts across all sectors, whether tech, health, art etc. and, in general. If you are gonna be critiquing, let it be constructive criticism.

    • I'm hungry

      @BooBooYup they're cheaper with similar specs because the Chinese Communist Party enforces forced tech transfer where foreign companies I.E. Samsung and Apple have to "partner" with Chinese brands basically giving their technology to them in order to sell in China. Those companies who are all are state ran and backed so it's not multiple private companies going against each other it's every foreign company against an authoratative oppressive government. While the foreign companies spend the time and money on R&D the Chinese brands just steal and copy, which is why it's cheaper, as well as many people are under slave labor, you can see what they're doing in xin jiang. Mrwhosetheboss didn't do this, but it's not that hard to see what's happening, so he's a sellout and spreading their propaganda. facts.
