Rob Vanderkam "You are one hell of a good journalist and content and media expert. I am especially impressed with your consistent upbeat, pleasant, engaging tone, consistent year after year! I also an really impressed with, and appreciate, your writing skills, which are obviously buttressed by your academic past. I could go on. I appreciate your positive contribution to the field and to humanity. No, that's not hyperbole - we all contribute, and your profile is positive and enlightened."
"I'm watching them all - Mkbhd, Android Authority, Pocket Now, etc - but your credibility is unmatched and your opinion trumps them all." VGFreak
CKS Richardson "I'd also like to thank you for your honest reviews of mobile phones. No other tech reviewers that I've seen dedicate as much time to using devices in real world situations before giving their verdicts. I would never have gotten an 808 if it wasn't for you, and the pictures that I've been able to capture (especially of my daughter who is now 19 months) are worth ten times the amount that I paid for the device. Keep up the good work sir!"
THIS is why Steve is one of the best reviewers and smartphone commentators around. You just cannot get this level of originality anywhere else. He provides way, way more interesting and informative content than whole tech teams with thousands of times his budget. Joe FallonJohn Balshaw "If Heineken did phone reviews... they'd be done by Steve Litchfield..."
"Your show is excellent. I try not to miss watching it, one of the very few video podcasts I watch. ...I enjoy seeing the wide variety of devices you review. Thanks for putting on a well researched, well presented and thoroughly entertaining show." Steve CousinsJusko "All of your videos were extremely informative and to-the-point"
"Love your show and your ability to properly present the features of phone technology. It is obvious you have a long history with Mobile technology and understand the devices very well and know how to utilise the technology to it’s fullest, even pushing the boundaries." Mark GrimwoodJohn Donellan"I love your show, your practical approach to reviewing smartphones with an emphasis on how they will work in the real world is a breath of fresh air from all the hype surrounding the release of most new phones"
"I based my latest phone purchase upon your review... the greatest show on the Internet. Keep up the great work" Andreas HellqvistDave Dyer "The most honest, cut-to-the-chase, easy to watch/listen to show anywhere. You home in on the key details"
"Great show. In fact I created a youtube account intitially for the sole purpose of subsribing to this channel. Great work, you seem to be the only fellow that sees mobile technology for what is." AlexanderCarlodi "Great videos, smart and full of info"
"Just watched show 44. OMG, it was excellent, very professional and exquisite. Hope I'll see you at BBC TV" Horia StanescuJo Laurence, PodFinder UK "Ah, if only I could find a man to love me the way Steve Litchfield loves his phones...."
"I can't believe how good the video quality is - it looks more like it was shot with an expensive video camera than a pocketable smartphone" Steve ClackJames Muir "I am impressed with how your show functions and figures, and how you shine light on all these great and (some not so great) products"
"The most credible person on YouTube as far as phone specs go" C SolomonCelyn Jones "Keep up the great work, your podcasts are so informative and unbiased"
"I can't believe how thoroughly you reviewed these phones... Good job! *hits subscribe*" R Sherfan
Tony Butler "Your videos are always informative, entertaining and balanced; I can't think of any other reviewer who goes into as much depth and covers as much ground as you do"
