    Great job guys! No bs and quick to the point! I’m a fan.

  2. ThatJewishKid11 on October 1, 2021 at 7:43 am

    Lmao y’all need to stop using filters on your video thumbnails yall DO NOT look like that. 💀💀💀🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂

  3. Just Mona & the Fur Crew on October 1, 2021 at 7:44 am

    Wow guys! I wish I knew what language you were speaking😳
    I have a cell phone, it takes pictures/videos, lets me talk to people, says something about 4G in the headline, it’s able to text, has voice mail & a lot of other cool stuff😂. But here again, y’all have taught me something I didn’t know and that is some of these cell phones have way too much technology! I took early childhood education in college.
    PS I have some friends who are now following y’all and they say you are the smartest guys on YouTube! So 2 thumbs up👍👍

  4. TheKid on October 1, 2021 at 7:44 am

    I know a lot of people want a fingerprint reader, but if I’m being honest I prefer faceid as someone who’s fingers/hands are dirty often. 6s to a 12 for me was great as well.

  5. Mrs. C in Coldwater on October 1, 2021 at 7:47 am

    Purchasing 12 next week. Current iPhone 7 has 4.7” display vs the 12 at 6.1. But, would like to see the mini which has a 5.4” display yet slightly lighter than the 7. And, the 12 may be larger in size than the 7 but it is less than one ounce heavier. Use an OtterBox Defender case with tempered glass over screen. With that, phone is pristine but the darn battery has listed “service” for over a year and no longer holds a charge all day. Does not get heavy usage, most activity is on the iPad Pro. And with 32GB capacity and over 11GB allocated to “System” & “Other” no matter how much App offloading, Cache clearing and the completion of a hard reset. Will select a storage capacity that will last longer than current model and give the potential of holding onto this one for more than 4.5 years with the appropriate physical device protection. Like the Apple ecosystem but do not need the latest and greatest.

    I tried the iPhone 6 years ago and hated it so now it’s Samsung all the way for me and I recently purchased the Samsung Z flip 5G from Samsung and it is the best phone ever

  8. Lorraine Taylor on October 1, 2021 at 7:50 am

    I need a phone right now. So iPhone 12 is my best bet?

  9. Micah Valdecantos on October 1, 2021 at 7:50 am

    deserve million subs 🥰

  10. 0552steve on October 1, 2021 at 7:52 am

    Great stuff guys. Subscribed. How about a question on digital wallets with the "best cell phone" (preferably Iphone)? I’m most concerened about the security of my iphone the digital wallet software on it. Thanks.

  11. Gene Paradiso on October 1, 2021 at 7:52 am

    I’m not a fan of Google. I deleted all Google from my iPhone and iPad.

  12. THE WARLOCK on October 1, 2021 at 7:55 am

    Few weeks ago u upgrade to the iPhone 12 good quality phone it’s amazing I got to say battery and performance is fenomenal 👍

  13. Allen Nkya on October 1, 2021 at 7:55 am

    Hey guys
    what about an iphone SE 2 ?

  14. WaddupQ on October 1, 2021 at 7:56 am

    Went from the Xs max to the 12 pro max about a month ago and I will have this phone for at least 3 years, it is so good.

  15. Susan Miller on October 1, 2021 at 7:56 am

    I went with the iPhone 12 and am find it heating up upon charging or on certain apps. Now I’m finding all kinds of complaints about this. Can you offer any suggestions? My old 6s plus didn’t didn’t do this. Please help.

  16. PR Sathya on October 1, 2021 at 7:56 am

    bro if i factory reset my iphone will my esim will erase?

  17. Thomas Keets on October 1, 2021 at 7:59 am

    I was planning on updating this September to the latest model as I currently have an iPhone 8, but I recently read that Apple won’t be including the in-display finger sensor. Bummer! Coming from the 8 I was hoping to still have this feature.

  18. Dan Chatka on October 1, 2021 at 8:00 am

    I’ve had electrical problems with the Pixel 3 and Pixel 4a. Google phones are not reliable.
    If you must buy a Google phone, then also buy repair insurance for it. You’ll likely need it.

  19. A Rashy on October 1, 2021 at 8:01 am

    Won’t the iPhone 12 and 12 mini go on sale in September?

  20. mary gagné on October 1, 2021 at 8:01 am

    My iPhone 8 Plus is going strong. I’m going to hold onto it as long as I can. I’m only jealous of the new iPhone 12 Pro camera.

  21. HALWG51 on October 1, 2021 at 8:01 am

    I will be upgrading from the XR to one of the 13 iPhones. I’m just not sure which one until I see what Apple is releasing. I’ve never needed the top of the line, but I may splurge on a Pro model this time.

  24. Charlie Moore, Jr. on October 1, 2021 at 8:05 am

    I am trying to wait until Oct or November for hopefully the price of Iphone 12 pro max to drop.

  25. H B on October 1, 2021 at 8:05 am

    I still have until next April to pay off my iPhone 11. I really want the 12 Mini

  26. Jennifer Withers on October 1, 2021 at 8:10 am

    Where your sweatshirts?

  27. Venci Nacario on October 1, 2021 at 8:10 am

    You guys have the best selection this month! Nice can’t wait for the next month selection. 👍🏻👍🏻

  28. mikeos1 on October 1, 2021 at 8:12 am

    I like the 4.99 price shown in subtitles. Where do I get one.?

  29. R U on October 1, 2021 at 8:12 am

    Apple better keep making the mini if they want me to upgrade any time soon. Phones have got far too big imho.

  30. Boricua on October 1, 2021 at 8:14 am

    I went from 11 pro max to the 12 pro max but because I gave the 11 pro max to my gf

  31. mrPmj00 on October 1, 2021 at 8:16 am

    Apple iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max.
    Plays all music formats including Apple’s format, videophone Facetime, cars have Apple Carplay but sometimes don’t bother to offer the Android version, more apps and accessories than android.

  32. Timothy Griffin on October 1, 2021 at 8:17 am

    I’m looking to upgrade/update my phone from the iPhone XS Max. It actually works OK it’s just that sometimes it can be a little slow but, to be honest, I’m not sure if that has anything to do with cellular connection or the occasional poor Wi-Fi.

  33. Amos Moses on October 1, 2021 at 8:17 am

    De-google phone is the best. No tracking at all!!

  34. FRANCIS NIESTEMSKI on October 1, 2021 at 8:19 am

    I have a iPhone 6 Plus and I cannot ( as you know) upgrade the operating system past 12. Many apps are now calling for OS 13. I’m on a budget what Apple should I buy ?

  35. reiikaiiro on October 1, 2021 at 8:19 am

    my iphone 7 plus is lagging so much atm and refreshing apps at the most random times as well my battery percentage is like at 87% 😭

  36. Anwar T on October 1, 2021 at 8:19 am

    I’ve never had an Iphone before. Always would get cheap androids my mom would buy me. But now I’m an adult and want to finally upgrade from my 5 year old android that’s running out of space. I don’t think I want to drop more than 800 bucks for a phone. What should I get? I was gonna buy the Google Pixel 5a cuz it’ll be cheap with a good camera and will have good speed for things like games and other software.

  37. Rub-a-Dub-Dub on October 1, 2021 at 8:21 am

    God I hate android phones 🤮 when it’s time to replace I take my 6splus and check the size, don’t like small screen, I do too much reading on my phone.

  38. Miss Daisy on October 1, 2021 at 8:22 am

    I have the pro max 12, at first the battery life was awesome after a few months the battery life is horrible. Keep in mind I only text a few times a day. I don’t use it for youtube or games. Rarely make calls, I’m disgusted that I paid as much as i did to apple! I’ve used you twos videos to help me but the battery life never got better. Imma hoping an update will fix it one day soon

  39. Ed Kelly on October 1, 2021 at 8:23 am

    “4A into 5G” come on that was funny!!!

  40. Kathy on October 1, 2021 at 8:24 am

    What is the best for privacy

  41. Sullen Nessa on October 1, 2021 at 8:27 am

    Waiting. I want that super iPhone camera stuff, but know that I will end up with something a bit less expensive when I do get rid of my cheap and continually disappointing One+ 6T phone.

  42. Alma Lodge 523 IOOF on October 1, 2021 at 8:28 am

    I have an iPhone SE second generation and an iPhone 7. I had to replace the battery in the 7 but I use my phones hard. I have not had any real problems with either cell phone. I also have a Tracfone LG 125 for $7.00 a month sitting in my vehicle in case of emergency. It is a plain jane cell phone with talk and text only.

  43. Rick Foster on October 1, 2021 at 8:28 am

    Hey! A question. What stuff is included in Android system update 27 and should I be concerned.

  44. Denis Lemieux on October 1, 2021 at 8:30 am

    The LG series??? You talk about headphones and sound quality all the time. Doesn’t the LG have great tech for sound quality? With good headphones of course.

  45. J Carathers on October 1, 2021 at 8:30 am

    Having to upgrade in December for my 5S won’t work on ATT anymore.

  46. Robert Schneider on October 1, 2021 at 8:33 am

    In August, I bought an iPhone 12 Pro. I looked at the specs on the 13, and I wonder why they are not calling it the 12 S? I’ll wait until the 14, and upgrade then

  47. PR Sathya on October 1, 2021 at 8:37 am

    Bro,if i do factory reset my iphone will my esim get removed?

  48. Dan Lynch on October 1, 2021 at 8:37 am

    I don’t plan to upgrade my phone. I use my cell phone to make phone calls, send text messages and occasionally use the GPS. As far as the iPhones, I never drank the Apple Kool-Aid so I am not tied to their ecosystem.

  49. Tasty Turnips on October 1, 2021 at 8:38 am

    Wow I’m amazed at how apple/google/Samsung seem to be the only options in North America. Are Xiaomi, oppo, Oneplus etc not available there? I’m really curious. The list offered in this video seems really limited when you consider all of the many other brands available

  50. Allen Nkya on October 1, 2021 at 8:38 am

    am planning to switch from an iphone 7 to iphone SE 2
