Ashhad, 16 Nov 2020Iphone 12 pro max has less battery life than iphone 11 pro ... moreWasn't possible because of the new design. Since it's boxy and flat, a thicker design to accomodate a bigger battery would've made this phone a literal brick. We've lost around 30 minutes of screen on time compared to the 11 Pro Max which is a shame, but nothing that major.

Ashhad, 16 Nov 2020Iphone 12 pro max has less battery life than iphone 11 pro ... moreWow, how is that even possible? How can they regress on battery life instead of improving it? Battery life is one of the most important aspects of a mobile phone. Apple probably expects to sell lots of battery cases or bricks.

Iphone 12 pro max has less battery life than iphone 11 pro max mrwhosetheboss has already done the test. Technically apple should have increased the battery capacity this year because of 5g but they decreased it.

Having just purchased the 12 Pro Max, following on my old Note 8 I can quickly see the main flaw with the Max. The hardware is great, Apple are finally making a decently big screen phone. But what they are not doing is making a big screen operating system to go with it.

You still get only four icons across the screen. Four very very large icons, which is a horrible waste of space on your homescreen. Android was like this back in the days of the first Galaxy Note, but at least you could install your own launcher and get round it.

Widgets are great to have, but the three fixed sizes are a terrible fit for the big screen. The smallest widget is 4*4 icons. A simple "what is the weather today" widget could do it's job in half of that, but nope, not allowed. At the other end of the scale, with a big screen a full-screen calendar widget gives you a useable at a glance monthly overview - but also not allowed. Again, Apple is simply not making use of the big screen.

Without the fixed "back" button that Samsung puts at the bottom right (next to where you hold the phone), you are at the mercy of the app developers choice of location. Often this is top left, which means moving you whole hand every time you want to, say, go back to choosing another article to read. Why not a simple easy back button that you can reach? Because that's not how the smaller iphones do it.

I could go on (split screen apps given the fancy new processor?), but you get the point. Nice big screen phone, bit thick and heavy perhaps but nice - but the operating system simply doesn't fit.

Anonymous, 16 Nov 2020What is wrong with IOS sorry Have you ever eaven hold a ip... moreMy biggest problem was that I have to install a useless app (iTunes) to manage my device.
Also if I wanted to setup any of my music as an alarm, then I had to convert it to a special format and cut it to 30 sec long (as far as I remember).
Also if I would happen to have my favourite navi (oruxmaps) app only outside of the app store, then I am out of possibilites, because on an iPhone there is literaly no chance to sideload apps....

iOS sucks, Android rocks.

I wish the current year iPhone models would be available with android, because they look very good, and have features what I would like to see on an android phone (relatively normal size, excellent water proofing, good camera, nice design)... Lets hope the others will copy them now as many times :D
