I'm sticking with my XS Max 256Gb for now. The 3rd camera on the 11 Pro Max is nice, but not enough of an incentive for me to upgrade on its own. Nothing else about the 11 really does anything for me. We'll see what next September holds.

my note 8 was giving me problems since they replaced it after the bike wreck
Asurion replacement phones suck


and it would not connect to the new phone to do the android to ios transfer but another note 8 he had would
guy said it maybe a bad antenna

so I get to reload all my apps and crap manually

oh well the 150 bucks trade in paid for the apple care and I canceled Asurion for 2 years

Still rocking an iphone 7. The battery health says it's still 90% good because I hardly ever let it charge to 100% (at first only to 80% but lately 90% since it has gotten old). I kept the new battery feature off cause it'll still go to 100%, just right before you wake up so it doesn't stay there too long. If the battery is still decent a year from now I might even skip the 11s but I imagine by the time 12 comes around the battery would be a goner and the 7 won't be supported anymore.

I don't think there will be a 11s

in a year everything will be all 5G so it will be a iPhone 12

Both 11 Pro Max arrived. Camera is mine but more of the same for me. Massive change for the wife coming from a 7 plus.

well about half of my apps reloaded and about half of those signed in

apple does not remember your sign in email for apps ?


face id is much better than android's

carplay is working well

seems wireless carplay needs a speed sensor wire hooked up from the Kenwood head unit
got the wire but have no idea where to hook it up to

The Pixel 4 is supposed to have Face ID-like functionality. It will be interesting to see how it turns out.

I was surprised as hell it opened every time today riding my bike with Helmet and riding sun glasses on

Yeah FaceID is pretty smooth. Just a touch faster this iteration around but its due to iOS 13 and not new hardware.

Triple camera is nice, night mode is nicer. Touch better quality on the telephoto and normal lens is nice too.

Ultrawide is good but in well lit areas. It suffers when its darker and night mode doesnt work with that lens.

Same stuff with the processor, faster than the competition by a mile. Same stuff with the RAM, lacking compared to the competition(iPhone will probably lose all 'speed' tests where opening apps and keeping them in memory matters). But will trounce on anything doing any real work like encoding or filtering videos/photos.

Overall this is the iPhone X(SS) a second iterative iPhone. This should have been a new design but I guess next year will have to be the year. I really wish they would go back to the iPhone 5 look which the new iPad pros are modeled after. Those were my favorite looking iPhones by far.

5G is so limited in the US right now, it's not a factor for buying a phone except for very specific markets. I'm betting that the iPhone 12 will have 5G support next year, giving the carriers more time to make it more widely available.

With speeds here at 100mbs+ I dont see the need for anything faster? Maybe if your home landline sucks but thats about it. I personally wouldnt need massive speeds on my cell phone.

I do.
We tether to the kids tablets and other devices a TON when we travel or simply go for a drive across town.

In some parts of the home (~4000 sq ft property), we have slow spots that I was previously planning on filling via mesh networking.
However, when you have 5G in the house and ~ 700mbps speeds, you dont need it.

Having 5G and unlimited tethering on a Note10 / S10 is miles better than not.

You dont need 100mbs for kids tablets. They aint torrenting

You only need it because I guess you refuse to fix your house network issue?

50 bucks more to get Kenwood & apple's dumb speed sensor wire hooked up to the truck's VSS

it's only used for wireless Carplay

but wireless Carplay is working
it has a little more delay in changing tracks
but phone calls work well

Say that when you have 15 devices and half of which are streaming 4k content at any time.

We have gb service in the house, but it's not always enough. Like I said, 5g phones fill in all of the hard to reach spots quite nicely.

So much so, that I haven't needed to worry about setting up a mesh solution.


Secondly, 5g isn't just about raw speed. It's also about breadth of the network in ways that 4g simply can't match.

Gigabit internet not good enough for 8 devices running 4K? Better check your connections. That’s if you got 2 Netflix accounts(4 max simultaneously on one account). Netflix recommends 25mbs for 4K. Even if you doubled that and had 8 devices running 4K you still wouldn’t come close to tapping out gigabit.

:shrug:

The space race for faster wireless service isn’t needed on phones unless it’s your primary source of internet. New technology usually rolls out in big cities where if isn’t needed as much. They should roll it out in rural areas first.

Yeah, I read that it could handle changes in appearance such as the ones that you described. Beards too, if I recall correctly. Can Face ID unlock your phone while you are seated at a desk, or do you have to pick it up and look straight at it?

I never thought of someone having such problems with fingerprint readers. That is very interesting to know. But I am a guy who does not work with greasy or dirty things and washes his hands perhaps a little too often.

I like the capacitive fingerprint reader on my Nokia 7.1. It is very accurate, and the rear placement makes it easy to unlock one-handedly after I pull it out of my pocket. Having to pick it up to unlock it when it is placed upon a flat surface can be a bit of a pain, though.

when I did my roof last year the shingles removed the tips of my gloves and my fingerprints

Face ID seems to have a cone area it can open not just straight at it

In all fairness the UAE is only 32,000 square miles, which is half the size of Florida

You could put almost all of Western Europe inside of California, Texas, and Colorado
