But for the rest I fully agree, a friend of mine still complains about the video quality under certain circumstances with his iPhone due to the flare.

iPhone have good cameras don't get me wrong, but just like all brands they have their pros and cons and flare issues is 1 of them.

I am eyeing on the Galaxy S21 Ultra but the saturation of pictures just annoys the hell out of me, especially because my LG doesn't do it.

On the other hand most people dont really talk about that with the S21 series, just as most reviewers ignore the flare issues on the iPhone

But God forbid if it was a LG having these issues, reviewers would crush it, yet iPhone and Samsung, and even Xiaomi to some degree get away with it.

Engadget claims the mini 13 didn't last a day with light use. I use the 12 mini and get 3 to 4 days with light use.

Great news for Apple fans. but there's nothing in the improvements that Android could glom on.

Currently the only review channel I enjoy is Mr.mobile's. his videos seems natural, if that makes sense.

AnonF-1016461, 22 Sep 2021Lol MKBHD is verified apple product promoterYep he bit biased towards apple.

AnonF-1016461, 22 Sep 2021Lol MKBHD is verified apple product promoter:)) exactly. I do not know why people are still watching his videos, it's clear that he has become a promoter and he is not impartial anymore, regardless of the brand.

Saying cons of Samsung and Apple would make him lose tons of followers.

So, why would him?

I am very surprised that even Phone Arena has lately been very hard on Apple.

An article to criticize the blueish hues of HDR (article taken down for unknown reason).
An article to criticize too much flare of cameras.
An article to criticize the weight of iphones, pro 13 max has 240g.

S21 scored great, iPhones score great.

Meanwhile he complained about Xperia 1 iii and LG G8.

Problem is all 4 phones have their issues, but he only mentioned most of them to the latter 2, because they are less popular.

That is my problem with him and the reason I watch his videos for fun and take all the info in with a (very large) grain of salt.

Wait for Samsung S22 series instead.

MKBHD reviews are not so trustable , that guy is more like a promoter than a reviewer 👎

yeah sure, lets trust mkbhd's review on apple products.

"Great battery life" the Verge

Hey GSM Arena, I am following you since years, and I respect you. But why now you sum up reviews from the biggest youtubers only? They already have enough attention, don´t they? What about ben's gadget reviews or others? I have nothing against MKBHD or The Verge, but there are plenty other reviewers making better and more detailed reviews, and not only copy-paste information about "smaller" notch and 120 Hz display.
