    We don't know how the battery life will compare on the mini vs the 12 right now, so including that as a mistake is pretty dumb. If phone does a good job only using 5g when it's necessary, the main power draw should be the display, so the smaller display could balance out a lot of the impact of the smaller battery.

    Question: if I buy an iPhone 12 from the Apple store website that is unlocked, do you you think it matters if I buy an iPhone that is sim free with the Verizon link without the sim card (in order to get the 30 dollars off) or if I buy an iPhone that is sim card free without the Verizon link and paying an extra 30 dollars for the phone? Becuase I was considering putting my Verizon sim card from my iPhone x into my iPhone 12 (if I do upgrade) so I can attempt to avoid the whole paying extra for 5g even though it isn't in my area.

    sounds to me he just bought a lot of shares from Apple and now tries to persuade everyone to buy the most exspensive phone and accesories.... SCAM! Not saying they are bad products, but every "mistake" just ends up being you not paying the maximum amount of money for an apple product.

    I do not see a point in upgrading from the Xs still. 5G still has a few months before it comes to my area and at the start the coverage isn't going to be great anyway. The dual-line (or dual SIM) feature from the iPhone Xs was the last real desireable feature that I found. Just not compelling enough to spend money and brave through 3 hours moving my data from my Xs to the new one.

    I just purchased online (yet to be shipped) 12pro fro Tmobile. Taking advantage of their great special trade in for my iPhone X. I’m not convinced I made the right choice (I think I could still change my mind). I do want a good camera since I do a lot of before and after pics for my business. I’m an esthetician so take progressive pics of skin quality and before and after headshots. Also before and after eyelashes. I’m not a big fan of having a large phone to fit my small hands. I also use my phone for booking appointments with my booking app Vagaro Pro. Looking at that calendar and booking appointments is a big one for me. I’m looking for your recommendation

    I want to upgrade from X, since it's screen shattered. I originally wanted to buy the 12 Mini, due to being the cheapest and also having almost the same specs as the bigger models. But since you've mentioned the battery life I steered to the 12 Pro. I passed the base model iPhone 12 because if I'd get the bigger phone I also want the additional telephoto camera, lidar sensor etc.... So therefore, I'm struggling, 12 Mini or 12 Pro? Will have to wait out on the actual RAM size and the said battery life.... Great video!

How about that ?? Less iPhones every year less kids dead so you can snap :) (Or at least they can try to repay to the RDC by helping these orphan kids who mine for them to go to school and have a roof over their heads ,I might be an optimist but that doesn’t seem to being too tough for many trillion dollar companies )

    I have the iPhone X. I love the stainless steel band. Wouldn’t wanna lose it by going to the 12. Looking at the 12 pro and max. Thank you!
