  • The biggest mistake for IPhone 11 Pro Max users is to buy any of them, it’s the same phone with a slightly better camera and processor that you won’t even notice without a bench mark, colors well it’s going to be what ever color case you put on it, MagSafe, still nothing new, Pitaka had it two years ago, IPhone 11 Pro Max MagEZ case, MagEZ charging stand, instant MagSafe and it actually fast charges.

  • um no. You should consider the iphone 11 pro models. I would not consider the standard iphone 11, but the 11 pros have the same screen (close enough) and basically the same cameras. Not every one is a tech junky. The iphone 11 models BLOW OUT the iphone 12 mmodels in battery life by AT LEAST 2 hours. If you want a cheaper, same screen, very similar cameras, and incredible battery life, get the iphone 11 pro models unless apple makes an update to the iphone 12 models to improve the battery life because it is terrible.

  • This was such a useful video to chose my new iPhone this year. I was so convinced that the iPhone 12 pro was gonna be way better than the 12 but it’s really not. The colors might look better and for me the better looking camera style were the only reasons why I preferred the iPhone 12 pro but they are pretty dumb reasons to waste $200+ just for that and sum other changes.

  • We don't know how the battery life will compare on the mini vs the 12 right now, so including that as a mistake is pretty dumb. If phone does a good job only using 5g when it's necessary, the main power draw should be the display, so the smaller display could balance out a lot of the impact of the smaller battery.

  • Question: if I buy an iPhone 12 from the Apple store website that is unlocked, do you you think it matters if I buy an iPhone that is sim free with the Verizon link without the sim card (in order to get the 30 dollars off) or if I buy an iPhone that is sim card free without the Verizon link and paying an extra 30 dollars for the phone? Becuase I was considering putting my Verizon sim card from my iPhone x into my iPhone 12 (if I do upgrade) so I can attempt to avoid the whole paying extra for 5g even though it isn't in my area.

  • I do not see a point in upgrading from the Xs still. 5G still has a few months before it comes to my area and at the start the coverage isn't going to be great anyway. The dual-line (or dual SIM) feature from the iPhone Xs was the last real desireable feature that I found. Just not compelling enough to spend money and brave through 3 hours moving my data from my Xs to the new one.
