    • Mistake #4 is the one I disagree with. Sine it was your channel itself that pointed out that there is not much of a difference between the 12 Pro and the 12 Pro Max. In fact you rightly pointed out that the Pro Max model actually lags behind in some cases. So the #4 conflicts with your own channel's opinion, causing confusion. What say ?

  • my honest recommendation is the iphoneXr really has an amazing camera especially if you use it for instagram, when you change the effects it's really great, but the best thing for me is the screen! the phone is not even expensive i have it. just look at that information here amzn.to/39EKeo1

  • My iPhone X had better service than my iPhone 12. But the 5G is noticeably faster. The 12 is always searching for signal and when there’s none it gives up on searching. I’ve noticed when I had service in town and then no service and come back. It still has none until I restart my phone or turn off/on airplane mode and finally gets 4G or 5G.

  • The Pro has 6 GB of RAM while the regular iPhone 12 only has 4 GB of RAM. I felt like that was worth the extra $200.00 I am going to confirm this tomorrow when I make my purchase. Too bad the battery has less capacity than the iPhone 11. The Max has nearly 2 hrs more battery life but it seems too huge.

  • I moved from iPhone to Huawei and now I am due for an upgrade. I am not going to stay with Huawei because of the whole Google / no Google thing. However, I traveled through Europe last year and only had my Huawei P30 Pro for taking pictures. It was absolutely awesome and the battery life is the best. So I'm looking at Samsung vs iPhone. The 12 mini iPhone has a ridiculous battery that doesn't sound like it will last for a day. So that is definitely not for me. That leaves me with the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 or the S20+ or the Note 20 Ultra or iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max. I need a phone that will handle all my business stuff like my 5 email addresses for 3 businesses, all the spreadsheet work, social networking, photography, Spotify and Apple music and many other apps. I want a phone that is fast, had 5G, a decent camera, decent size memory and great battery life. Any opinions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
