Yes, we’re on week two of yapping Galaxy S8. But we wanted turn the conversation around to the editors and YouTubers doing the reviews — how did they handle being under the pressure of an embargo? If they weren’t under one and just decided to get shove videos out as fast as possible, how does that forward the mobile tech conversation? And with all the hard work people put into this content, does the pageantry of it all nullify any of the elbow grease?

This week, we chat with a guy that’s had to research a whole bunch of Galaxy S8 reviews, Engadget social media manager Evan Rodgers. Make sure you’re charged and ready for the Pocketnow Weekly!
