I got the iPhone 8. I’ve replaced the battery already but it was a bad one. It doesn’t seem to get a signal, like it works then stops or it has full bars but it won’t load anything. What should I do?

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.
MrPlasma Orë më parë
apple says that the regular 12 has 15% better battery life

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.

sounds to me he just bought a lot of shares from Apple and now tries to persuade everyone to buy the most exspensive phone and accesories.... SCAM! Not saying they are bad products, but every "mistake" just ends up being you not paying the maximum amount of money for an apple product.

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.

It’s marketing- the more models you have, the more mid- and hi-level (read “expensive”) will be sold. It’s science... actually psychology.

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!

13th mistake supporting them by producing new apples devices on a yearly basis. Will help even kill more people in DRC so they can get all the rare materials used in their devices . How about that ?? Less iPhones every year less kids dead so you can snap :) (Or at least they can try to repay to the RDC by helping these orphan kids who mine for them to go to school and have a roof over their heads ,I might be an optimist but that doesn’t seem to being too tough for many trillion dollar companies )

Just finished running benchmark tests on an iPhone 12 Pro on Verizon’s 5G network. Super fast downloads, no video streaming latency, excellent refresh rate for gaming apps, and a low-light camera sensor which rivals most mirrorless DSLRs. All in all, a quantum leap for the iPhone. Well done!
