He is a professional ultimate frisbee player, best known for his technology-focused videos as well as his podcast Waveform. Currently, this person has a YouTube tech channel “Marques Brownlee” with over 17.4 million subscribers globally.
On 8 Sep 2023, Marques Brownlee published a video on his YouTube channel with the title “This is a crypto phone, don’t buy it”.
Throughout the whole video, he mainly talked about the two main things, built quality & features.
According to the YouTuber, mobile’s built quality with matte stainless steel frame, coloured titanium buttons, and ceramic back is really good but from the point view of the specification, it is not worth it as come with one-year-old old Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, while it costs $1,000.
This YouTuber noted that the mobile was launched at a $1,000 price but later the price was reduced by the company to $5,99 so that huge numbers of people can purchase this mobile easily.
According to Brownlee, the backend mobile manufacturer company was established in 2017 but failed and later collabed with the Solana crypto project. And also at this reduced price, there are huge numbers of mobiles available with better features.
