At Ting, we’re all about ease-of-use. That’s why we always endeavor to make your mobile experience a no-brainer and our app and dashboard as straightforward as possible. Still, many of us are going to have to cop to being absolute tech nerds. When you’re talking about mobile devices all day, you can’t help but be interested in what’s new and hot.
We’re all about saving our customers money and figuring out life hacks to make their mobile lives easier. So when we got together in the office to answer the question ‘who are your favorite tech reviewers?’ it probably shouldn’t have surprised us that our top five were a bit of a mish-mash.
Some of these tech reviewers will give you your first look at the newest and most advanced gear. Others, while offering some of that content, will also give you tips on how to improve your tech experience while on a budget and other fun information. These folks aren’t necessarily the ‘biggest’ or most popular YouTube reviewers, but we think they do what they do really well. Here’s hoping you enjoy them as much as we do!
Michael Fisher aka Mr. Mobile is a prime example of the concept “do one thing and do it really well.” When you visit his YouTube channel, you’re getting one thing and one thing only – straight tech reviews. As his 826,000 subscribers can attest to, his choice of products and reviewing style keep you coming back to see what’s next. You’ll see the latest smartphones, smartwatches, laptops/tablets headphones and more in action. The retro-tech section is fun, but perhaps most unique is his Transportation playlist. Mr. Mobile actually reviews new electric cars, and even take’s Toyota’s fuel cell (hydrogen) car through its paces. With how much we’ve enjoyed Mr. Mobile’s reviews, it’s been our pleasure to partner with Mr. Mobile as a sponsor.
Linus Tech Tips
Linus Tech Tips is undoubtedly one of the most successful tech review channels on YouTube. With 9.6 million subscribers, this guy has more followers than Justin Timberlake. Linus Sebastian also offers up reviews on an array of gadgets, but it’s likely his branching out into other video types that has helped his popularity. A good description of the majority of his videos is actually the title of a playlist on his channel: build and buy guides. Linus has become a hero of DIYers everywhere by offering reviews and sage advice on components and accessories as well as how-to videos to maximize your tech experience. He’ll also let loose by doing some builds you absolutely should not do, like in the video above.
Linus is a busy guy and actually branches out quite a bit. If you’re a fan of tech podcasts, you’re probably familiar with the ultra-popular The WAN Show. For those who need visual stimulation, there are video replays on Linus Tech Tips. We’re fans of his TechQuickie side-hustle as well. Generally clocking in at under 6 minutes, they’re a nice departure from the bloated 20-minute offerings of some tech reviewers.
In a space often dominated by dudes, Sara Dietschy is kicking ass. This YouTuber and content creator has over half a million subscribers. For us, what sets Sara apart is the way she focuses on both the technology and creative sides of content creation. With a background in video, you can expect to see reviews of killer cameras and smartphones boasting the best photography and filming capabilities. She also showcases crazy-fast laptops and desktops up to the task of heavy video editing. At the same time, she has great how-tos on everything from YouTube-ing to entrepreneurship. The behind-the-scenes looks at her life and work are excellently done as well, serving as inspiration for viewers with aspirations of tech or creative pursuits.
Mrwhosetheboss is Arun Maini, another extremely popular YouTube reviewer (nearly 3 million subscribers). The UK-based Maini focuses mostly on smartphones and tends to offer some great reviews on the most anticipated phones and accessories. A clear Android fan, his videos on little-known features and customization of Android phones have garnered quite a following. Another unique set of videos is his Tech Adventures/A day in the life series. Like you might see on automotive channels, he heads out into the real world and tests gear in different situations.
Mobile Tech Reviews
We know you’re waiting for the punchline but we’re 100 percent serious. For those of you unaware, Mobile Tech Reviews is about as old school as you can get when it comes to tech reviews. “You mean, like, they started in 2010?” you might be asking incredulously. Hold on to your hats – these guys have been around since 1998. And while we can assure you they’re reviewing the newest tech (and not utilizing 1990s equipment to do so), the style of filming and presentation will feel dated to most viewers. So why do we love Mobile Tech Reviews?
The fact is, they are one of the last few larger tech review channels that are truly independent. Not only are they not paid or sponsored by any of the companies whose products they review, they don’t even keep any of the gear (save for a few small items that would cost the companies more to ship back). The result is 100 percent objective and unbiased reviews. The comment sections of their videos are full of praise for their straightforward videos that pull no punches.
