MGC Evo (evolution maybe?). It is similar in price to the Tornado, so maybe this might fix the corner cutting problem some have? The magnet system looks similar to the WRM 2021 ngl. It also has this Minecraft-esque inner texture? Block game reference? Anyway, I can't wait for this.

New smart cube from the makers of the Go cube. This one looks like a normal speed cube but has no magnets and a replaceable (rather than rechargeable) battery. Looks like a non-magnetic version of the Rubik's Connected to me, right down to the packaging.

no magnets in 2021,.. almost 2022?

That's an odd choice.

The Rubiks connected is actually a pretty fun cube. but unlike the Gan smart cube it doesn't handle X/Y/Z moves,.. it gets confused easily.

I liked playing around with the Rubiks connected but most of the time it didn't even register that the cube was solved and the timer just kept going.

I have Rubiks, Gan, and GoCube,... and the Gan has been the only good one.

The GoCube is a neat cube,.. but it's not a good speedcube.

The logo still hurts my eyes though...
The classic MGC logo is absolutley baller, the gold M is aight, but this just kinda sucks I would agree. BUT, still looks really awesome from the cubicle video that came out today

I'll use your own words to explain their decision, "The GoCube is a neat cube,.. but it's not a good speedcube". Why put magnets in something that isn't going to benefit from them a lot since its probably just something neat for just anyone. Their demographic is a lot broader than just speedcubers so it makes sense to keep magnets out to lower the cost and make it just a little more accessible to someone who may just pick this cube up because its cool.

I do agree. Their reviews are mostly positive anyway. Which store would say: Don't buy this... But it still is one of the scarce videos so far.
TheCubicle is for the most part pretty honest with there cubes and a lot of the "Everyone solves" videos someone has something against the cube. TC even has a couple videos telling you not to buy a certain cube. They also have very interactive Twitch streams.

I support JPerm in that he is not afraid to be critical of cubes, especially the recent Gan 12. A lot of cube reviewers don't want to be negative.
CubeHead comes to mind.

While I'm not the biggest fan of Jperm's content (or most other "entertainment" channels in general) I will admit he has pretty solid reviews (not to be confused with unboxings. Unboxing videos of any kind by any creator are mostly just absolute garbage no-brainer quality) on puzzles and I think he has a good style.
