  • Left apple last year for the Google pixel 2, best decision I've ever made.

  • What a bunch of ignorant people here crapping on Marques like he was defending Apple. English is not my first language and I still got the sarcasm. And I'm not an Apple user btw.

  • That's why I generally wait for a month or so if a new iPhone or iPad or iMac comes out. Just to make sure there will be no problems. But if its an hardware problem, then I guess waiting doesn't help...

  • An apple paid reviewer who goes soft on apple thes paid reviewers make iphones expensive and hyped

  • Beauty gate isn’t even a thing. There’s no face smoothening there’s just better lightning and warmer colors. It just takes more light in the camera that’s literally it

  • Please tell me where can I find the blue wallpaper from his iphone.

  • can anyone tell me the name of the wallpaper in the thumbnail of the video plzzz???

  • Bill Gates

  • 1. you have lost the touch of the ground in your video 2. you are not truly technical anymore, "the tech-hungry approach is lost, and now you seem just another fanboi who is just dazzled by hype and looks 3. is your Review now "in depth"? when you missed out on a major flaw. How is it a thorough review? 4. I get it when you say you didn't notice it cause you use wireless charging, but an average consumer can't get his hands on every potential product out there and try it for a week to make the final decision. So people come to this channel for Review before spending money on any product, so they expect every quirk and feature and flaw there is to know about it. 5 you have this obligation, now that you have 7M followers, to be precise and be more vigilant in your inspection. with you shifting from hardcore review to just overview approach of review, you are dropping out on a large section of viewers/potential viewers who turn up for in-depth unbiased and honest review to help them make the purchasing decision. I hope you read this. I am not a hater of your channel, I was introduced to OnePlus ( OnePlus 1 review) from your channel, I purchased my OnePlus 3T after watching your video, and I currently own OnePlus 6.

  • Apple: no quality control, no testing, no parts after warranty, no reliable staff that could indeed repair something instead repleacing parts - well, if you have time, money and health - go for it. Doesn't matter how people call every major flaw in Apple products. When Samsung had problems with exploding batteries - they fix it fast without any stupid explanations. But I know - you need to protect Apple to receive free products from them.

  • "Working as intended"

  • Can u tell from where did u get such good wallpapers??


  • 2:42 lmao 🤣🤣🤣

  • All new iPhones are amazing & but like any new hardware or software there will be teething problems & there likewise there always be a bug here or there. That is why there be iOS 12.0.1 then iOS 12.1, so on & so forth.

  • Baby By AllttA

  • wallpaper on your phone???!!!

  • I hate Apple. iPhones are designed to fail. As soon as you’re out of warranty, they die. Every single time. Garbage way of treating their customers. Just designed to extract money from you.

  • Why are you defending Apple?

  • funny tech videos I've seen ever

  • bill gates lol

  • 2018 Antennagate?

  • It’s the UI mannnn. It’s why we stay.

  • *I WILL BE SUCCESSFUL - Adrian Trummer*

  • Hey Marques great video as usual! haha I don't think he's going soft *Referring to another comment* on apple but yea apple has gotta fix this issue. I personally have not had an issue charging my iphone xs max but for the most part I am charging it via wireless charging port on my desk.

  • Wallpaper someone?

  • Fuck Apple, support right to repair!

  • i chance from iphone 2 poco F1 and i think it was the best choice i made, save much of money, and have all the good goodies i need for my use. but i will never live the mac os x world. the macbooks and imac are simple the best, on mobile they have to chance something to win me back.

  • I am more concerned about the wallpaper on the phone. Can you give me a link?

  • Going soooo soft on apple here but then again, this is basically an apple channel.

  • I am legit mad with the s max that i have, you spend so much money in this and the fucking front camera sucks and also i have the charging problem

  • Why Marques?

  • Apple sucks.

  • You are fantastic. Keep up the great work.

  • I hope that billgates won't cause as much drama...

  • Looks like Apple has released an Update 12.0.1 to fix the Charging problem you said doesn’t exist. But its ok Marques, Adam and Eve liked Apples too much and that turned out just fine as well……………

  • Can apple sue you for showing a video of a French man having an incident with an 18650 battery explode in his pocket because he had it with loose keys and suggesting it is an iPhone? Hope not.

  • Its not because of the "massive scale", its because of the massive price they're taxing for phones that come with big problems.

  • I love the sarcasm 😂😂

  • Why does he supports iphone more than Android...😕

  • Everyone knows it's not true but it really seems like Apple has paid you.

  • Marques is samsung hater

  • I just had my Iphone XS Max replaced because of my bluetooth and wifi just greyed out on me after IOS 12.01 update

  • Praising Apple: everyone loses their minds Praising any Android Phone: everyone smile from ear to ear. God damn these fanboy wars, please get a life, love your phone whether it's Apple or an Android who cares if it's expensive or cheap, who cares if it has no head phone jack or has one, who cares if it has short or long system upgrade? As long as it works it's fine! The consumer decides which phone to buy you have no right to judge a person by what phone he's using. Coming from Huawei and iPhone user.

  • It's funny how you made this sound like it's not a big deal, but guess what Apple just released an update to fix it , I guess it was indeed a big deal

  • Bro your wrong you tell us wrong..you defend apple..we demand truth. You supply us wrong..apple accept there truth..do a video and apologies..!!

  • iPhone is best phone on planet! You are using it wrong and if it is not charging it is still better than android!

  • Come on guys He is paid for this...

  • El groncho debería hablar con voz en off, es muy feo!

  • And that wallpaper? Where can i get it?

  • The charge gate is a cause of IOS 12 I have a iPhone 6 and the same charge gate problems happen to me

  • Charge gate seems more serious than antenagate

  • Unsubscribe .cause iPhone have purchased you 😪😒

  • Unfollow 💩 ass_iPhone channel 💩💩💩💨💨💨

  • Some ppl need that beauty gate!!!!!!

  • iPhones Suck

  • iPhone is for super rich people with less brain who buy iPhone with their rich parents money...if they earn it , they wouldn't pay for sub standard phone with big name defended by people who needs big followers...crowd mentality is common and MKBHD knows how to maintain his cordial relationship with both apple and his followers

  • Next Iphone : Iphonegate

  • you might think that 0.001% is a very low number but in total quality management, there's a concept called 6 sigma which simply means that a company must produce not more than 3.4 defects/million products, i.e. in order to certify as a 6 sigma company which I think a company as huge as Apple easily does. All that to say, 0.001% is bad, very bad. Not ibashing, just wanted to get it out there.

  • Am I the only one who heard At 0:41 you to gay

  • Your future Apple Chargegate letter was hilarious. Loved it! Your videos are always excellent! Thanks.

  • wow brown you look so white when taking pic with XS

  • Lol look at the angry android fans in the comments lmao 🤣

  • I just think people complain too much about Apple They’re just haters

  • If I'm migrating from android to ios, which one you will recommend me? Iphone X or Iphone Xs? In my country Iphone Xs is not launched yet (Malaysia). Worth waiting for Iphone Xs? Need your advice.

  • Everytime Apple comes with a minor update in the previous functionalities and boast about them as the latest feature. All the recently launched models doesn't offer anything new apart from a bit of update.

  • Sugarcoating everything. 1000$ phone should be flawless! Smh!

  • Phone wallpaper anyone?

  • They already fixed these things in 12.0.1

  • -Price Gate-

  • I love your impressions of Apple lmao

  • that shirt is trippy af

  • Calling major defects in a phone "gates", and trying to make it seem normal, now I feel your reviews are no longer honest, maybe time to unsubscribe


  • Bill Gates: You are welcome.

  • After reading the comments, I feel like I've watched a different video from what they've seen. Marques never defended apple. He even turned against them by making sarcastic points about their past responses and how terrible they were, and that at the end of the day, you're gonna buy it anyway. Which pretty fair, is completely true. Apple had dozens of problems at the past, and they responded very arrogantly, and people still buy more aggressively than ever their brand. And that's his damn point, I don't understand what video watched at you people.

  • Bill Gates

  • I just realized his shirt is blurred on purpose, I thought it's my eyesight

  • Apple guy

  • Mine is GPSgate. In buildings location detection goes crazy and normally not even close when i'm actually at. Outside it works ok, but less precise than my iphone 6.

  • play the video in 0.5 speed and i feel like i would be listening to marques while i'm high

  • U2 Gate???

  • Good doggy of apple 😂😂😂

  • Selfie camera is really disappointing

  • Apple iPhone sucks 😂

  • 216.000.000 x 0,01 % = 2.160.000 Mil 216.000.000 x 0,001 % 216.000 K :-)

  • Yeah, a phone exploding in your pocket while you’re hanging out with your boys VS Jean Claude Van DAMN I look Good! I’ll take the latter any old day of the week.

  • Wow

  • Apple's first Gate was "Bill Gates"

  • Pocophone is bad came at me bro

  • Now apple brought a iOS 12.0.1 update to fix this Chargegate issue.

    • or, all the gates that fandroid are complaining about

  • No one wins but iPhone, why did you not mention Price Gate and explain why the price of an iPhone is $1500 and pushing up the price point of smartphones at the premium range of all smartphones, this technology in general should be getting much cheaper, I've done a lot of teardowns of iPhones and a lot of the components do not justify the final cost!

  • 7:41: MKBHD refering to Unbox Therapy

  • Dudeee, I am a regular watcher and trust me I don’t wanna see you do this defending crap!

  • Charging just patched in 12.0.1 looks like just software verified it fixed it on my phone at work

  • hello dear marques tell me which one edit software do you use for your video editor ???

  • I realise the Xs Max's charging issue has affected some users (myself included on occasion), however I still find myself chuckling after watching/listening to opinions from several well-known reviewers. It borders on hysteria. Assume the more views they receive, the more value they generate for sponsors, but the complaints on this issue vs no issue is extremely small. Also, as a long time Apple user, I've found they rectify these issues - if slowly. It's been exacerbated given our increased reliance on mobiles for work/play, Xs/Xs Max’s premium pricing along with high expectations we have that issues - like this - are identified through rigorous pre-launch testing. I would have thought Apple had a testing centre given how important iPhone sales are to Apple. Am sure fix update not far away - I hope? Personally, my three biggest gripes are 1. The ridiculous price, 2. No fast charger, 3. No lighting dongle. I still not sure I can justify the upgrade from my 8 Plus.

  • Am I the only one to unsubscribe the channel after watching this video???

  • Its just ios it makes it so exclusive while the android is there on a 200$ to 1000$ phone the only reason people buy iphone

  • This definitely looks like Apple's mouth speaking. Should have been a neutral video but it's not.
