  • People don’t be scammed by 5G, unless you’re in a large city there is no 5G. 5G waves only reach 1000 feet, 4G goes five miles. This means 5G towers won’t be around the country for a WHILE, and if your phone says “5ge” that isn’t 5G, it’s just a fat lie.

  • I am looking to upgrade to either a 11 Pro Max or 12 Pro . I do a lot of outdoor photography and some video . I am wondering about the battery too . I have a 7 Plus 128 now and with trade in I can get either the 11 Pro Max 256 or 12 Pro 128 for about the same price , $50 difference in the two . The 128 storage was fine with me , so not concerned about extra storage in 11 Pro Max . I just want to find out which one do you think would be the best phone and camera combination .

  • Great video! I'm a long-time Android user who is in the process of switching from AT&T to Xfinity Mobile. The iPhone 12 may be a better deal than the Samsung A71 as I'm looking at for 5G. It may be time to jump onto the Apple "bandwagon". Saving this video for future reference as I'll need a new phone case and magnetic charger too afterwards. Thank you for being such clarity. P.S. My husband had received the iPhone SE 2020 for his birthday from his brothers and he misses his Blackberry (he uses the iPhone for work only).

  • Hey. I consider buying the normal iPhone 12 because i want a new refreshing design which i loved in the iPhone 5. I own a 11 Pro Max right now. Is the 11 Pro a better phone than the 12? Confused if this would be a crazy downgrade or not. @Max Tech

  • I just bought the 12-pro, actually. For me, the LIDAR feature alone is worth the extra cost over the regular iPhone 12. However, the improved telephoto lens and sensor of the pro-max isn,t worth that much more. But to each his/her own, yes?

  • To the one reading this, you are precious and valuable even if you don't feel so. Jesus loves you ❤ He paid a price on the cross for our sins. He rose on the third day and defeated death. He took the punishment in our place. He did this out of his inconceivable love for us. He can revive your situation no matter how messed up it is. Don't end your life at any point. There is hope in Jesus. You just have to humble yourself and call out to him "wholeheartedly" and he will answer you. He set me free from porn addiction and masturbation in 2018 which I struggled with for almost 10 years. I was close to death three times and he saved me. He changed my lustful heart. He can transform your life if you let him. You just have to repent from your sins and transfer your trust from yourself to Jesus. He will give you the peace which surpasses all understanding, even in the midst of trials and tribulations. Fear won't grip you anymore because you will receive the assurance of eternal life when you believe in Jesus. He is the way to heaven. He paid our fine by shedding his sinless blood for our sins. Our good works cannot get us to heaven because those are like a bribe to the judge of the universe. This is a very serious thing. We never know when our last minute on earth is. It could be any second, hour or day from now and if we don't have forgiveness for our sins, we will end up in Hell. We cannot take our money, riches or fame with us when we die. We have to give an account of our life to God. We only have chance till we are alive on this earth. Please think about this. Don't let pride stop you from knowing the truth. I was prideful before and rebelled against the living God and forsook the truth just because I didn't want to lose. Humble yourself and call on to Jesus from wherever you are and ask him "sincerely" if all these things are true. He will reveal it to you. He will open your heart to the truth. You can experience him personally. Try it. You won't lose anything. I am writing all this because I really care for you. Even though I don't know you, I know that your soul is extremely precious to God. May God bless you :) Are you a good person? (A short video): uzworld.info/player/video/jXy4ja5_mMvHqKI

  • I’ll just wait till Apple makes an “ALL SCREEN iPhone” & stick to my iPhone 11 Pro Max b/c there’s Really NO DIFFERENCE between the 11pro & 12pro. This guy is trying to Hype-Up the iPhone 12 in every sentence he says when there’s “No Big Difference” between the 11 & 12 iPhone.

  • What about SIM support.? I personally look for Internet Speed, RAM, Screen Size, SIM card Support and battery life, Reliability in any phone before buying. I personally dont use have camera as I am not photographer or like photos that much. Kindly suggest between iPhone Models vs Samsung Note 20, which one to buy considering the things I usually look for in a phone.
