Q, 17 Oct 2020By ur logic, then mark zuckerberg should use Facebook phone... moreYour logic is garbage. None of those phones are recent or even made anymore. If company employees don’t even want to use the devices they make, it says a lot about the company.

Anonymous, 16 Oct 2020No. Only LG and Boe make 10bit oled. Samsung does not. ... moreBut the panels used in Asus 7 and Oneplus 8 Pro are Samsung made 10bit OLEDs!!!!

Stil all four models are excellent midrangers but far from a flagship device which have plenty of techs which apple dont have.

Q, 17 Oct 2020By ur logic, then mark zuckerberg should use Facebook phone... moreHaahah, you shut down him down good.
That guy is spamming every thread with the same old sh*t.

Nick.B, 17 Oct 2020Official Apple.com website says 5x optical for 12 pro max. ... moreApple has already said, they'll be delivering periscope zoom in 2022.
In typical fashion, 5 years late than other manufacturers.

So everyone knew that the 5x optical zoom was a gimmick especially when the specs said 5x optical at 65mm. They are actually counting 5x zoom from Ultrawide cam (which is at 0.5x).
5*13mm= 65mm, that is how they arrive at 5x.

Anonymous, 17 Oct 2020No 120 Notch no pencilSo what you are saying is that you want apple's version of the galaxy note. I must say I'd love to see that, but I'm sure that because since Steve Jobs mocked stylus cell phones it probably won't happen. It might support apples pencil down the road but it would be nice if they go all out with their version of the note..... Maybe when they release their foldable phone....

Nope, 5x optical zoom is a BIG BS Apple invented this year; the 'real' optical zoom for ALL iphone 12 is 2.5x.

It's very much like the 'fake' sapphire lens they proudly advertised; when a 'credible' utuber found out that those 'sapphire lens' scratched at Moch scale 7, they deleted their 'sapphire lens' as iphone feature the next day!

Official Apple.com website says 5x optical for 12 pro max. But in the spec sheet it is 2.5 optical.
What is true?
If they deliver me 5x optical which I use like once every 2 days! I would switch from android to iphone. Zoom is big deal to me.
I don't see how it is 5x optical without periscope clearly missing such on 12 pro max (and all below). Maybe 2.5x optical and 2x optical from the next sensor and some trickery? Will it work like my real 5x optical on my find x2 pro?

Bill Gates should use Microsoft Duo / Windows Phone,
Marshall owner should use London, etc.

Good luck surviving with that logic, lol

The prices in Europe are greedy like hell again. For the basic iPhone they took at least 150 Euro more than in the US. Nothing to do with taxes, they simply overprice their expensive phones in Europe even more all the time. Like if people in Europe would generally earn more than in the US. Google sells the Pixel 5 just with the American prices. And even Apple can do it: The new speaker costs nearly the same in Europe than in the US.

Screen of Mini is equivalent to 5.1" 16:9 (S6 for example).
It is FHD, it has 5G and less than 2300mAh.
Endurance will be even worse than SE 2020.
