Hi there stranger!
My name is Chris, I’m the owner, administrator and sole-writer of this website.
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, I decided to branch into technology, another one of passions. 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 became successful, especially 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 – 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 platform (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.
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 channel or really took advantage of the Partner Scheme by Google. Thus, all I’ve got and 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 payment from companies, I don’t endorse companies nor do I ever act dishonestly 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 in their chosen field(s). I’ve stuck to what I know best and built upon that.
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 a commission on qualifying purchases.
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…. anyway, I hope this gives you a good idea of who I am and what I do!
If you wish to contact me, for business enquiries you can do so by either leaving a reply on any of my posts, reaching out to me on socia media or sending me an email.
