Silver Play Button

Published

on

It’s finally here, our Silver Play Button from YouTube. Creators the world over are awarded this plaque upon surpassing 100,000 subscribers.

Our YouTube Channel crossed the 100K threshold last March ahead of our June target!


Some of you may not know this but GadgetMatch started on YouTube back in 2014, so this accomplishment is extra special to us. We’ve already got our sights set on the Gold Button handed out to channels with over a million subs.

To celebrate, here are some GadgetMatch YouTube trivia:

Our first video was published on September 3, 2014 and was shot, edited, and posted from Berlin, Germany.

Our most successful video was our Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Hands-On with over 7.5 million minutes watched, 1.5 million views, 23K likes, and 2K comments.

Our biggest audiences (in order) are the United States, Philippines, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, UK, Canada, Singapore, Australia, and Thailand.

The most memorable video we ever shot was How to Make a McWhopper. Shot during our early days, it was our way of proving to ourselves that we could react fast and work quick. From idea to publishing, the video took about just an evening to put together. While it may not be the usual video, it still has a techie twist at the end of it.

The unboxing video that took the longest to shoot was our Zenfone 3 Ultra Unboxing which was shot over a course of three days because of our ambitious setup. The cocktail we used as a prop had to be made several times over, and was eventually frozen so we didn’t have to re-make it.

Our favorite review video to make was our iPhone 8 and 8 Plus Review which we shot on location in Singapore over a course of two days. We often go out of our way to make sure each video is as comprehensive as possible, and for this particular video, we hunted down one of the only establishments in Singapore that had wireless charging built into its tables just so we could show off the new iPhone’s wireless charging abilities.

Michael Josh launches “She said, He said” with Nicole Scott of Mobile Geeks

Full of spunk and sass!

Published

on

Tech journalists Nicole Scott and Michael Josh have a lot in common. 

They’re both entrepreneurs with tech publications, creatives who know how to work hard and play hard, nomads with roots in both the East and West, and dreamers who wish to tell stories of what our digital lifestyles look like globally. 


They both also have plenty to say. 

Sometimes, though, that’s where their similarities end. 

Among friends and colleagues, this dynamic duo is known for their impassioned debates. Now, on their new podcast, “She Said, He Said” for the first time you can listen in as they dissect the biggest stories in the world of tech, and how they’ll transform the way we work, live, and travel.

Nicole won’t admit it, but this Pollyanna can be slightly cynical – even if she’s surprisingly factual when she gets argumentative. On the flipside, Michael can be doe-eyed and idealistic, but don’t let his enthusiasm and love of tech mislead you into thinking he won’t call out bad gadgets when he sees them. 

It’s this unique combination that makes the two click, and the show interesting.

Each week, expect to hear unique perspectives, the news that matters, and a whole lot of strong opinions! This new series will tackle innovations in both hardware and software and will highlight sustainable solutions that can help drive society forward. All delivered with the sort of spunk, sass, and fun only these two can provide.

“She Said, He Said” is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and everywhere else you get your podcasts. For a full rundown of subscription links visit their website.

Or, listen to the three episodes already live:

Today’s Laptops: Innovation or Gimmicks?

Is Apple just an overpriced luxury brand?

D.O.A. Is Huawei a necessary casualty of the US-China trade war?

GadgetMatch in BLACKPINK’s area thanks to A Galaxy Event

Samsung gave attendees a wonderful treat!

Published

on

People flipped when Samsung showcased the Galaxy A80 and its rotating camera at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand during A Galaxy Event. Then, the audience absolutely lost it when popular K-Pop girl group BLACKPINK showed up on stage to perform.

Our man on the ground, Rodneil, was pretty excited about the event. However, we’re not sure if he had his priorities straight.


BLACKPINK in your Galaxy

Folks around the Impact Arena were well aware that BLACKPINK was in the area. There were some BLACKPINK merch sellers stationed at a mall near the arena ready to dole out to Blinks that had cash to burn.

The event carried on as expected.

Then shrieks were heard all over the arena as soon as BLACKPINK hit the stage.

BLACKPINK’s members talked about their favorite Galaxy A phones after their performance but our guy on the ground was too busy taking photos to take notes. #priorities

On the sideline of the event, we spotted a BLACKPINK edition of the Galaxy A70. It’s only available in select countries, though. But maybe if you hound Samsung Mobile enough, they’ll bring it to your area too.

What did you think of the Galaxy A80’s rotating camera? Should Rodneil get a date with Jennie? (Yes.) Where else should Samsung bring the Galaxy A70 BLACKPINK Edition? Let us know through our social media channels!

Throwing shade everywhere!

Huawei launched the much-awaited P30 series in Paris, France. Naturally, the GadgetMatch team expressed their thoughts and opinions. See how excited they were:

Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu started the show by announcing the P30 right away. Of course, some of us didn’t expect it to be showcased so soon.


However, it was just the beginning. Everyone was aware of the P30, but no one knew what else they were launching. Yu started by presenting the new, breathtaking colors for the P30 and P30 Pro, but one color really stood out.

The highlight of the event was the unveiling of the P30 and P30 Pro’s even better cameras, and Yu’s shade against Samsung’s Galaxy S10+. 👀

The crowd was amazed when Huawei revealed their DxOMark score for the P30 Pro.

However, it wasn’t just phones that were launched. Huawei introduced earphones, new smartwatch faces for the Huawei Watch GT, phone cases, and even more accessories.

Huawei capped off the event by throwing shade at Snap’s Spectacles before announcing their partnership with Gentle Monster Eyewear.

What were your thoughts on the launch of the P30 series and all of Huawei’s other products?
