    *Updated to iPhone 11 after my iPhonex started to act a bit wonky.◓◓>**allmy.tips/iPhone11pro?ぬ ** So far I am pleased with the larger screen and the camara. We always go with the larger memory so we will have no storage problem issues. So far so good*

    All this bickering over Samsung and iPhone is getting hella old. Samsung fanboys make fun of the price and, “old features” on apple. While apple makes fun of Samsung’s, “poor status”, or , “exploding battery”. You guys should appreciate software rather than looks and price. Both Samsung and OS softwares are totally different and opposite. Both serve two different usages and features, some features better than another. Stop bashing on a brand that you don’t even consider yourself buying, what do y’all get out of it? Does it thrill you? Does it make you feel better? These two companies have literally two different systems. Literally, you guys are comparing apples and oranges, both different but good. You guys have to chill out because by the end of the day these phones aren’t the same and have their own different capabilities and uses.

    The OLED display you boosting about is not Apple's own patented display. They couldn't create one so they bought it from SAMSUNG. SAMSUNG has been selling and perfecting QUAD HD AMOLED Displays since 2016. Hahahah Apple is so late in so many technologies like wireless charging fast charging modems and still DUMB people blindly throw away their money on these obsolete apple products

    • Fritzrulez90210
      Fritzrulez90210 2 months ago

      Ankur Mahajan hey dumbfuxk. Do a bit of research before saying something. You’re embarrassing all of us android user here. Yes samsung makes the oled display but it is by apple own design and patent. So the oled is not the same as samsung. I own both note 9 and 11 pro max. Both are exceptional device. No need on hating on either.

    Just go for the S10. You're not losing anything.
    Except like $300 off the price.
    Don't be upset because im right.

    And no, I don't hate Apple or the phone, if I could have it then yes I definitely would.
    It's just SO not worth the money. And Apple is charging you more for things the S10 already has and Samsung has had for years.
    It's kind of mean. And greedy.

    I was considering to get the 11 cause of the price but the design is just so terrible. Likewise with the pro, wish they had 128 gb instead of 64. Still waiting for the holiday deals.

  • LevelUp

    I would agree with you, but honestly the battery life is the one stand out feature that EVERYONE can use more of. I just finished a trip to Disney. Wife & Daughter: iPhone XR. - Son: iPhone 8Plus. Me: iPhone 11Pro. .......my son carried around a portable charger so everyone could recharge 3/4 through the day. Me?......I kept going strong. HEAVY photography & video use along with normal social media posting, texting, etc all day in Disney. I went back to the room each night with 20-40% battery life. Never had to worry about it. It's just too good of a feature to ignore. $300 is steep, but I think it's worth it.

The screen is great for watching movies on the train ride to NYC and the camera is just outstanding! If you can AFFORD it then go for it.

    Brought a 11 Pro Max in Space Grey. Extremely happy!! This is the most beautiful iPhone after the 7 Plus Jet Black. Everyone should go with the 11 Pro at least. The XR and the 11 are the worst iPhones ever. They suck!! More bezels. Very chunky. Always less camera. Just for a few hundred dollars?!?! No way. And the Midnight Green is so so. Nice video @Jeff. Keep it up!!

    • HuffyPlayz MC
      HuffyPlayz MC 2 months ago +1

      @Mohamed Salah So far it's actually pretty great! Massive camera update for sure, it can zoom up to 10x it's original size and down to 0.5 it's original size. Graphics are great, and the audio quality is a lot better. It's super fast, as well. Not quite used to the size and weight of it, though. Battery lasts for a very long time, I only need to charge it like once every two days. My new case makes it look like an absolute unit, so it's basically a brick, but otherwise, it's pretty good. You'll definitely get lots of years out of it.

    • wizzy barca
      wizzy barca 2 months ago +1

      Lorenzo Hudlun thanks . The reason why I would go with the pro is the screen , I don’t care much about camera. I think I’ll go with the 11 is good since you can get double the storage for $50.

    • Lorenzo Hudlun
      Lorenzo Hudlun 2 months ago +1

      I Think It’s A Better Deal. But If You’re Into Photography & Using The Camera A Lot, Then Go With The Pro Model. The Camera & The Display Is Not The Much Of An Upgrade From The 11 & The Pro Models In My Opinion Though.
