About comments 2 Chinese Smartphones

Dear Linus,

I'm a Chinese fans & love to watch your videos on Bilibili.Your videos have great quality,and we are happy to watch them.

But some videos about Chinese smartphone are unfair,these smartphones are based on Chinese customers' habits.You are better not to judge only from the Western customers' angle.

And about the latest video about iPhone,NOT every user agree with you(e.g. Airdrop) due to their countries' situations(For example,the number of Mac user in China including Taiwan,HK & Macau).

Last but not the least,please cover the flag of what you called "The Repubilc of China"(In fact,Taiwan Province) with mosaic In order to accord with the video regulations in China, which is the rigid requirements for video publishing.

Look forward to your reply.

Kind of hard to judge a phone from another countries angle, when it's not an angle he's used to or partakes in, no?

It makes more sense for him to cover phones in this way because that's what the vast percentage of his audience is.

 

Maybe if they come out with an LTT China branch, that will change, until then, it just doesn't make sense.

it would make better sense for a Chinese national to review the Chinese phones in a Chinese market, no?

The way he judges products (not just phones) not meant to be sold in western countries seems to be from the perspective of a westerner so I guess that'll always have something to do with the way they review them.

LTT is for Westerners, so, you know, it makes sense to judge them from Westerners' view.

Frankly, Chinese phones aren't all that different from others. Had Huawei P7 and currently on Xiaomi Mi5. One thing is for sure, Chinese like iPhone-ish launcher style with apps listed directly on screens and not with separate launcher. And they like launcher to provide tons of features out of the box and be all cheerful and colorful. They also have a nasty habit of making things be there, but rarely ever truly polished. For example the weather app on Xiaomi. It used to have location service based weather which automatically switched cities. Then along the way it was a bit broken and then they just removed "Automatic" mode entirely. Or the Security Center which refused to auto update antivirus unless you were on WiFi. Or the Syncing which again relies on WiFi like mad. I have a feeling China has like super expensive data plans and everyone there is sticking on WiFi. I have 20GB a month with 3000 minutes and 3000 SMS for 10€. I can't even be bothered to switch to WiFi because data plan is so cheap.

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

I kind of doubt he would cover things up to meet Chinese regulations. . .

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
 
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
        In Flanders fields.
 
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields.

How does Westener judge from perspective of Eastern? Or North American in perspective or South American, European, African or Asian? They don't. If you want perspective for your locality, you watch videos made by those who are familiar of the situation. Thats how things work.

 

There's also another thought. If products are sent to Linus for review, he always gets letter from rep. Detailing what product is about, its purposes, why its built and for who. Things that company wants to bring up and clear up. If the rep has written letter as if these phones would come to sale in NA customers, then they would bring up stuff that is interesting in westerners perspective. So if he misses reasons why something is so popular on other areas, thats not entirely his fault.

 

You can try and come up with reasonable review of something which is made for westerner audience mainly. Something which isn't global brand like iPhone. You see how hard it is not to take Chinese side of things vs more broad view. As you don't really know why someone living in UK or Canada would like features device has.

He did that based on user comments on these forums. So majority of people who replied. It was the over-positive version compared to previous rant he had. You should learn to watch things with critical eye (while trying to keep that talent hidden from your goverment, if possible. We don't want to get you in trouble). In latest iPhone video Linus talks so much shit about why Apple is good. Like embracing monopoly of one OS. Also embracing iTunes and app installations being locked when talking about Fortnite. Such a stupid point (as if Apple doesn't take their share of every purchase made through iTunes like Google does with Play Store).

I think they could make another version for Chinese markets. There are only handful of nations in the world who agree with China on that point. I don't think Taiwanese are among them.

Reviewers can only give their testimony on the product.  That's their unique perspective on it.  So of course he will have a Canadian perspective, which to us Westerners isn't Westerner.  Its...that place North of 'Murica tyvm.

it is a different culture, but Linus is Canadian and wants to appeal to his demographic area, hence click bait.

Glad to see that we have such a globalized audience and community.

But a globalized perspective cannot substitute a reviewer's own perspective towards a specific product. There's no way and also no need for Linus to appease everyone in one single review. It's also such kind of review that promotes (sometimes positive) debate among his diverse viewer base across the world to further reflect and truly understand the pros and cons of the product in question.

Nevertheless, Linus did provided interesting takes on the Chinese phones recently. Also, get this: the purchasing decision you made ultimately affects you. You do not have to take his word for it, you should just try it yourself to see if you like, if you can.

He did admit the original iPhone video was a bit too emotional so he made a proper follow-up, based on user response from forums. Since majority rules, those minuscule and miscellaneous occurrence when something does not work well is irrelevant. I highly suggest you to go back and see the thread of the discussion to see if you miss anything.

And finally, I understand the sensitivity of the geopolitical issues on both sides, and again, there's no way to appease everyone, so just let it be.
