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.
AlphaZulu Kun oldin
"So definitely buy the 12 Pro Max if you want the absolute best camera quality". This is terrible advice without even testing the camera or the phone.

Which iPhone 12 to buy? Easy! Want a small phone? Get the 12 Mini. Want the big screen and/or cool tech features? Get the 12 Pro Max. The regular 12 and the 12 Pro are just a weird middle ground that makes no sense to me.

You need to buy a new phone and keep in the package 📦 in till new one comes out then test and don’t do any update on the other phone because the iPhone it’s a Scammers last you three updates they long down the iPhone show the new one that’s for sure when in real life in the same way :(( Before they use to show the batteries better until they got sued they were slowing down the barriers on the phone your head now they Lauren different just putting a virus is slowing down the phone apps everything Else phone it’s a bigger scam, ripping off people :(( The same way care is doing what the Internet and service they’re all working together they slowing down the 4G 3G show the 5G is more powerful one in the reality is the same junkies

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 think I am going to buy the max one! I am SO sick of not being able to take quality pictures since i love taking photos for traveling etc. and the camera is actually the most important for me! The only think i am mad about to apple is that there is no rosè gold one! Such a pitty.

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.

I just purchased online (yet to be shipped) 12pro fro Tmobile. Taking advantage of their great special trade in for my iPhone X. I’m not convinced I made the right choice (I think I could still change my mind). I do want a good camera since I do a lot of before and after pics for my business. I’m an esthetician so take progressive pics of skin quality and before and after headshots. Also before and after eyelashes. I’m not a big fan of having a large phone to fit my small hands. I also use my phone for booking appointments with my booking app Vagaro Pro. Looking at that calendar and booking appointments is a big one for me. I’m looking for your recommendation

I want to upgrade from X, since it's screen shattered. I originally wanted to buy the 12 Mini, due to being the cheapest and also having almost the same specs as the bigger models. But since you've mentioned the battery life I steered to the 12 Pro. I passed the base model iPhone 12 because if I'd get the bigger phone I also want the additional telephoto camera, lidar sensor etc.... So therefore, I'm struggling, 12 Mini or 12 Pro? Will have to wait out on the actual RAM size and the said battery life.... Great video!
