What is Her GadgetMatch?It’s a section of the whole GadgetMatch website dedicated to lifestyle tech! Anything from gorgeous new colors of smartphones to vacuum cleaners! (Yes, they did a feature on Dyson’s new vacuum cleaner!) You actually find way more interesting tech than usual in this section than even the main page! (Normal tech coverage gets boring sometimes.) It’s the brainchild of Isa Rodriguez, the resident Lifestyle Editor and Social Media Princess of GadgetMatch! (I am super fortunate to feature her on my blog! Check it out here!) I really appreciate on the focus of how a certain gadget looks and feels. It’s also great that they focus on certain aspects that regular reviewers may miss sometimes. (Beauty modes, filters, and stickers are examples of that.)
Why Focus on Lifestyle Tech?Well, the hardcore techie audience isn’t enough to sell products. You’d have to convince A LOT of people outside that bubble to make your product popular. For instance, the iPod became the most successful mp3 player at the time due to its mass market appeal. It didn’t have to satisfy the hardcore techies a lot. (Although their recommendation really helped Apple push the iPod to its greatness.) Without the iPod’s success, I don’t think we’ll get the iPhone at all.
What’s The Difference?Here’s an example:
This is a fairly standard review. There might be some parts about its looks but it’s usually an overall assessment of the phone. It may also be for people who are really tech savvy.
Now look at this post and article. It basically focuses on the fact that there’s a RED OnePlus 6! (I for one, would want one so bad!) You really don’t need much more explanation than that!
Even the videos they make for Her GadgetMatch really fits the aesthetic they’re going for!
