Casey just started using the Note 8 Samsung is paying him to showcase

Samsung had a disaster last year with the Gallery Note 7 battery. To turn the tide the company is now dumping big money on Youtubers, or as Casey calls them "creators". Casey's problem is that he does not know much about technology. I bet he did not know that we could see all along he was using Twitter on iPhone (and the web) when he was pretending to have "always been the Android guy". When iOS had this terrible autocorrect bug that turned a simple "I" into "A (illegible)" it became apparent he was just a terrible liar.

I mean what can he do? His wife and kid hang out on iPad and he wants to Facetime and iMessage them. And Candice isn't going to give up her iPhone no matter what. He can wear his Samsung Gear on his wrist and hold up the Note 8 into the camera, but in real life he isn't shooting his videos with the Galaxy and he is a heavy iPhone user.

Now that he knows we know, he is stepping up his Note game and actually using it for Twitter as well. Just keep in mind he is being paid big bucks to pretend.

Update: This did not last long.



After having watched his iPhone X „review“ he lost all credibility. What a pitty!
You can‘t work for Samsung and review Apple gear. At least not according to my rule book.

Too bad you are using this ancient-looking website without "like" buttons.

I did not know him either until you mentioned him ...

Interresting observation. But he stated that he carries both phones with him. And he never made a secret of being paid big dollars by Samsung.

"but in real life he isn't shooting his videos with the Galaxy" - how do you know that? maybe iPhone for twitter/facetime/iMesage and the galaxy for video?

But I really don't care too much. I take his "tech reviews" with a grain of salt when it comes to phones. The videos are fun to watch.

btw: isn't he using a dedicated running watch instead of a Samsung Gear?! (ok, but I can not really tell the difference, so you might be right on that one.)

Let's just get real. Casey is an Apple user, whether it's iPhone, Macbook or Finalcut. He cannot really operate anything else. He just gets paid to pretent to love Samsung. Navigating Google Maps is already beyond his skillset.

Great storyteller though.
