    “Unlike An iPhone, it still works when you fold it in half” I split my drink out

    You guys are the best! Love your videos and the content. I always learn something new.

    The prices are outrageous regardless of the phone. Once the battery wears out what like in 2 years or so what’s the use you gotta get a new phone anyway unless you can stick it out or get A new internal battery. I’ll stick with my Galaxy S20FE phone I’m happy with it For now anyway plus I got a great deal on it.

    If you buy a new phone at the Apple Store, do they do trade ins too? I have bought my Apple Watch in the Apple Store but I didn’t know what to do with my old phone. Thank you.

    Should I upgrade from 11pro max to 12 pro max or wait for 13 pro max, as it’s coming with 120 hz refresh rate

    I’m iPhone user ❤️

  13. cato on June 13, 2021 at 7:26 pm

    Do I really need an iPhone 12. I was thinking the iPhone 11 is all I need

  14. Greg F on June 13, 2021 at 7:34 pm

    … and _apparently_ FaceTime is coming to Android 😀 I’m too invested in the Apple ecosystem to go back but I know lots of people who would go for a Chromebook and a decent Android if it had some of the same features as Apple after Apple EOL’s their existing old devices.

    Have a G20….glad I didn’t pick the iphone

  17. obwanusa on June 13, 2021 at 7:47 pm

    Just picked up a new SE from Costco, saving $40, and replacing my iPhone 6. Fine battery life, it makes and receives calls, and does a bunch of other stuff. It doesn’t fold, but it does fit into my pockets. Can’t imagine why anyone would need anything more…unless they’re caught up in all that conspicuous consumption, or are just trying to impress someone. I mean, it’s just a freaking phone!! A lot of times, I just leave it at home because…we’ll…it kind of has an answering machine built in. Imagine that….

    ahhhhh, the ONLY benefit for the ” others ” is that it keeps APPLE real. Yet will always buy apple. What you pay for is what you get. Apple – thank you.

    Anyone in the UK I recommend john lewis for phones as there’s sometimes discounts even on Apple and an extra year guarantee on Apple and often other brands
