    What you had sounded kind of serious. Hope you get well soon.

    I've somehow avoided getting sick even though everyone around me has been.
    I never get sick either (knock on wood) but for the last week or so, I've had this runny nose thing that's just been weird. Like allergies or something... but I've never had allergies!
    Idk,.. A sinus cold?

    He's got a hard on for Apple that's as big as Donald Trump's ego. I tell you, when I want laughs I read the Phonearena's comments section. When I want serious reviews i go arstechnica, gsmarena, pocket now, technobuffalo, here and Android Central. Used to love anandtech but the writing there has slipped some. Most other places are a joke, especially iMore and The Verge.

    Android authority is OK too but their site is too ad infested and hard to read on mobile.

    I am enjoying more techno buffalo and pockets now videos just because they don't seem to have a bias towards any phone that's comes out. If you seen pocket now and how Juan does his reviews and videos he brings a lot to the discussion unlike phone arena John V where he gives Apple a pass on everything

    Mike Fisher on pocknetnow is the ****! (The other guys there too are really good, but Mike has the dramatic voice which kills it)

    Having said that, I always like reviews who give me more to chew on as I'm learning about the device. That's why I like how WPC and AC here do their reviews. Even the cmaera shoot out reviews on AC are pretty good. Never liked reviewers who focus alot on the spec sheet and the same old cons as everyone else. If a phone has flaws, then it has flaws...but you can tell who really used the phones and who knows how to write for a specific audience.

    Haven't watched any of iMore's videos, so can't really judge them. But just like you, there are times when i go to Verge's videos and read the comment section. God bless trolls.

    The very first phone review i've watched was on PocketNow. That guy has a killer voice.

    That's why I love my Z3 Tablet Compact. One of my top 5 buys of all time. When 6.0.1 hits it'll get better, but as is the only thing I'd want is multiwindow.

    There were some atrocious videos by WC in the time when those new devices came out. You don't need tk make a video showing how to change certain setting. Just write an article.
