Should you use an iPhone or a Galaxy? Is it worth it to buy the $3000 drone, or is the $300 one basically the same thing? How does portrait mode actually work? Thanks to Marques Brownlee, these internal debates can finally be laid to rest. For the past nine years, he’s posted helpful, easy-to-understand videos to his MKBHD YouTube channel, beginning with simple tutorial videos and comparisons of software updates with older versions. Today, his 5.6M+ subscribers flock to his channel any time a product is released to find out about its new features and to see if it’s worth their money. With his thoughtful insights, Marques is now one of the most trusted names for millennials seeking technology advice. In a world dominated by devices, his guidance is priceless.
