About Me & Contact

Hi there stranger!

First of all here’s my contact information for business enquiries – email me at: 

My name is Chris (Born in 1991), I’m the owner, administrator and sole-writer for this Blog.
I established my name on the Interwebz back in 2007, where I started to make gaming montages and quest guides for Runescape on YouTube, under the name of Totallydubbed. I quickly found a lot of people started watching my content, as they liked the way I explained certain aspects of the game.
As time passed by, I decided to branch into technology, one of my huge passions in life. I started picking up anything I had laying around my room and reviewing it, making unboxing videos and/or “how to” guides. I thus decided to separate my two channels. One dedicated for gaming: Totallydubbed and the other for technology: TotallydubbedHD
In 2010 is when I made my move and transferred all my reviews and tech related content to my secondary YouTube channel, which then later turned into my main channel: TotallydubbedHD.

My reviews and guides seemed to become successful, especially after my Samsung Galaxy S1 guides on flashing ROMs and Kernels. I quickly became the world number one video maker in the world for ROM videos of the Samsung Galaxy S1. With this success, I became a Recognised Contributor over at XDA Developers, the biggest Android forum in the world. This was a huge honour for me, as I had always used XDA as a reference point for my guides.

In early 2012, I decided to launch this website – despite it not really having much, it was a stepping stone for what was to become a hub for all my written reviews. In mid/late 2012, I decided to start porting over all my written reviews I had written, be it on AmazonUK (where I later became a Top 500 reviewer in the UK), certain forums or new products I had thoughts on. It became an instant success – in just under a year and a half I had already hit half a million views on my website.

What about the YouTube thing?
It still went on, my gaming channel unfortunately slowed down, as I started posting less on that (despite having 1,500 subscribers and over 1.5 million views) – however, my tech channel was constantly expanding and at some points exploding more than I could imagine!
It thus became my main YouTube channel, as I was constantly posting videos on there – almost every week, there would be 2 or more videos posted by me. It reached over 3.8 million views and is constantly growing with subscribers (Over 4,500 subscribers).

Now I’m here where I literally “started from the bottom” (yes that’s a Drake reference!) and got to where I am now. Not once was I been featured on any YouTube channels or really took advantage of the Partner Scheme by Google. Thus, all I’ve got and all I’ve accomplished has come from hard work and dedication. Everything you see on my website, on forums or on my YouTube channels are a result of me striving hard to be one of the most honest reviewers you’ll ever come across.
I don’t take pay cheques from companies, I don’t endorse companies nor do I ever act dishonest to my audience. I might not be a huge influence on the internet, but I want to at least have an impact, by being an honest reviewer that people can trust. A lot of reviewers these days are paid, bias or just plain uneducated on their subject. I’ve stuck to what I know best and built upon that.
Over the years, I’ve also built relationships with certain companies and/or other reviewers and thus, that’s why you’ll see them featured on my homepage – I admire what they do, or use their products daily and thus feel the need to share it. From an audio reviewer friend, to AmazonUK where I purchase most of my things from.

All my work is completely free – I even suggest you use AdBlock on my videos (as there shouldn’t be any adverts on them) – and all my work is self-funded. I’ve had the pleasure of receiving items over the years, but not once have I been paid for what I do (not from YouTube, nor my “fans”). Thus, why I’ve become an Amazon Associate to make commission on AmazonUK purchases that are made via my Amazon links. Thus if you want to help me out and you were thinking of buying an item (especially of something I’ve already reviewed) then I would appreciate you using that link or an AmazonUK link on my reviews. It doesn’t do anything apart from tell AmazonUK where their traffic and purchase came from – and because of this, they give me a small commission.

Other than that, I work full time now and always make time to reply to comments or questions within 24hrs (if not minutes). If I don’t reply within a month, I’ve either missed your comment (very rare, unless Google goes crazy) or I’m presumed dead. Like my poor Link below – Yes you’ll find a “dead link” (pun intended) if you enter a URL on my site that’s invalid. Pretty neat right? Goes with my gaming love perfectly I find!

I hope this gives you a good idea of who I am and what I do!

    Hi Totallydubbed! i found your post quite helpful…only that my Galaxy S3 GT-I9300 recently somehow was displaying all the colours of rainbow on the top right hand corner of the screen. Figuring water might have seeped into the device, i took the back panel off and put it under a room heater for several hours. Then afterwards when i switched on the phone the screen appeared same as before, large portion of the top right hand corner all smudged with rainbow shades, but the rest of the screen was ok along with all other functionalities. Then i went and put the device under the sun, screen up for couple of hours. and now the phone makes noise, vibrates blue led blinks on the left corner but the entire screen is black and stays blackened. even kies can read the phone but no dispaly at all … so i have backed it up. But is there any way i can get the screen back without sending it for repairs or buying a new screen?
    Please advice.

      Hi there,

      As far as I’m aware, that looks like you’ll need physical hardware. Sounds like the screen has had some damage (either pressure or water).
      Sorry bro – can’t help no more on that front!

    2.balanced for music

      Hmm not really sure about Bluetooth to be honest. I would recommend the Steelseries wireless H though, but that’s wireless, not Bluetooth.
      Other than that, haven’t really tried many Bluetooth headphones or earphones to give you a good recommendation.

      Hi buddy, best bet is to go to sammobile and get the latest unbranded BTU firmware – and then you can flash that one :)!
      Doesn’t have to be exactly the same one, nor the oldest one – it can be a newer version.

    Hi Chris! While I may not be an “audiophile”, I seriously like to listen to music and I am considering getting the Shure SE846 earphones. It is very expensive, but I heard it sounds good and it looks quite cool to me, I just want to hear your thoughts and opinions on it, and whether it is worth the money. I am mainly going to use it for on the go listening on my iPhone 5 (I hope the iPhone is good enough to play music). Thanks in advance 🙂

      Hi there buddy!
      I’ve only briefly tried the SE846, so I can’t really comment too much on it – my first impressions were very positive though – a mix between the SE535 (taking its mids and highs) and adding that very much needed low-end to it, via the extra driver.
      I did feel they were overpriced for what they offered though – but again, that was my first, brief, impressions.

    Hi Chris,
    Thank u for your review. It was very informative and helpful. Could you please tell me if I was to buy 2 of the LSX 170 speakers, one for each bedside table, can they be paired? What I mean by that is play a song and both speakers work at the same time. Thank u in advance.

    Hey, just wondered what your thoughts are on the akg k3003i. How does it compare to say the Phonak Audéo PFE 232? Which would you prefer as far as sound quality goes? Also any other thoughts on it?

      Hey Peter,
      Well I’ve only demo’ed the AKG’s as AKG never sent them to me for review! The PFE232 are more v-shaped sounding and less revealing in terms of their mids and highs. The AKLG’s are a lot more refined and produce a much more accurate sound. Considering they’re about 2-3x more expensive, you would expect it – but personally feel the PFE 232s fro their price, punch above their weight when compared to the AKG’s.
      What I prefer in the PFEs is their removable cable an lightweight design.
      Purely SQ it would have to be the AKG’s (from the demo)

        Just one other thing, is there a better earphone than the k3003i that you know of? I was thinking about getting the k3003i, but since I’m paying that much already is there a better one at that price point? Plus it would be nice to get one with a replaceable cable. Also, any other recommendations that you know of come to mind?

          To be honest with you, I would be inclined to venture into custom earphones if you can. I personally own and use the harschacoustic SH-2 CIEM, and to me they’re better than what the AKG’s offer and are better than the PFE232s.
          There are so many more CIEMs out there too, especially at that ridiculously higher price, but I can’t comment on them as I haven’t head them myself. I think what the AKGs do ina universal is nice, but if you’re really serious about audio and your ears can accept and get used to a CIEM, then I would think a CIEM would be a much better option all-round (from drivers and crossover to isolation)

    Hello,

    I bought a Used samsung galaxy phone few days ago which is international model (G935F) only Kit in GOLD COLOR.

    He gave me the box as well but its not the box from my kit its some one else box but original. because its a box for Pink Gold Samsung.

    I checked the IMEI number on the box and on the phone its same IMEI number and the Strange thing is that the phone show itself color PINK GOLD but the original color is GOLD. i check all this information from the APP called “Phone Info”

    after few days i started investigation about how its possible the phone color is Gold and Phone Info app shows me Pink Gold color.

    After That I check the imei number is blacklist or not and i found the imei number blacklist in one website and i think that is from US side.

    Again the phone is working perfectly and its battery life is Awesome. I am in love with the phone. and dont want to return back to the shop. 🙁 but i think i should return him and get refund.

    Final thing i check on the rare side of the phone there is IMEI number which do not match the the Phone Info.

    What Should i do. can i keep that because its working perfect.? or return it? that mobile would be shutdown anytime? can i update that phone to Nougat version? Why anyone did all this things with this Awesome phone. ?

    Looking forward for your resonance . Thanks in advance.

      Hey,

      Not sure – you should double check that that’s the case. Often phones might go under repair, where their chassis colours might change. If however their signal works and the phone works without any problems – I wouldn’t worry about it.
      I cannot say if it’ll be shutdown or locked at any point. Given how old the phone is, I don’t see that happening.
      You can only update, if the firmware has been released by Samsung, or if you custom flash it (at your riske).

      -Chris
