"Buy an iPhone RIGHT NOW". A bit too spicy of a title, I see. I get a kick out of the fact that the title was edited here.

hey can anyone in here tell me why ios app updates are bigger?? for example if im updating PUBG mobile on android it will be around (200-500MB) at tops but in ios it will be exact size as a fresh download like over (2.3GB) and nobody seems to talk about this its just not just android which do this smart updating even windows app store only consume less data to update apps (even if u dont care about data costs. it will still take more of your time and more space to do the update. i mean if the app is 4GB then you will be downloading additional 4GB and when updating it unpacks data and installs it while keeping the orginal app incase of update errors. ending up needing a bigger space in disk to just update an app)

The dumb faces on the FRvid thumbnail pics are so ridiculous. It looks cheap and childish and I generally don’t watch videos that have these ridiculous faces.

Iphone is not worth switching to this year, as predicted. However, same rumors say the next year one is going to be very good. Meanwhile, i am delighted with the new ipados and ios13

I don't even bother watching your iPhone reviews anymore. Here's a Spark Notes version: you sit and bitch about things it's missing that is obvious to everyone and all the people much smarter than you at Apple, but clearly for a reason they've chose not to implement that X feature. Yes you'll bitch about the notch, how they haven't changed anything else but cameras, waste of money, etc etc.

He complains about Apple not supporting an already one year old phone for 5 years and yet when I buy an Android, it slows down less than a year after buying it AND it has no real support after 2 years. Such a biased FRvid channel

The iPhone 6s and up are supported on the latest software, iOS 13. That’s a 6 year old phone, not 5. iOS 12 supported devices as old as the 5s, which was 7 generations old in respect to that software update.

@batsonelec C i agree if youre not into tech and dont like the latest hardware id go apple. The iphone 6 and 11 both have a 720p screen so youre not missing out on much. But a 3 year old samsung has a 720p screen and the latest have a 1440p so youd really be missing out if you were with android

@Milan Labus Of course you can. But you'll miss out on some features and important security updates.
batsonelec C
batsonelec C Il y a 4 mois
​@Milan Labus that is generally true but I take Square payments on mine so the OS needs to be fairly newer for the security aspects. That is why I personally left Android years ago and got a used iPhone. My 6S and 5S still run the latest iOS. I had upper end tablet and phones and all of them stopped getting updates after 2 years and 1-2 years later could not run the Square App due to the security flaws in the older OS.( none got higher than 4.2 and square needs 5 to run at all ) If you only use it for a phone, you are 100% correct, it will still work as a phone. If you do any internet or specialty stuff like Credit card accepting, you generally have to be fairly recent or it won't work correctly or at all, as I found out. Apple's biggest draw is the updates come from them directly and are not carrier dependent. Both T-Mobile and Verizon stopped updates on me with my Android devices. I had no problem with them other than the updates and all were a little more buggy than my iphones. It wasn't enough to switch until Square required a newer OS device, then I went to iPhone and have not needed anything newer since. MY mint condition 64GB unlocked 6S was $200 and has been great for 3 years so far. YMMV.

While all these FRvidrs will tell you, the peasant, that the new iPhone isn't worth getting, you can rest assured they'll have it for themselves. That's how it always works - the important people have the latest and greatest, meanwhile you're still using a 5s because you work at McDonalds and you're about to fired and replaced by an iPad.

Gage Il y a 4 mois
no, the iphone 11 (or any iphone) is an overpriced piece of shit. You pay $1000 for the bear minimum. Most android phones you can find now have way more features and are overall better than Apple, for cheaper and or the same price. I suggest getting a OnePlus 7 Pro or a Samsung Galaxy s10+ / Note 10

3:00 But a phone isn't dead once OS updates stop becoming available. New apps still suppor the older OS for years to come.

Dying or not, from my point odd view its this "linus has steadily been building hardcore mining and or server hardware, thus FRvid had somewhat served its purpose to gain the funding for a bigger project and plan, that hes been editorial ans hinting st in his videos over time, If you've been paying attension, that is? Not to mention his affiliations, partnerships and ties with huge corporations. Factor that in and you will see what I see? One smart mofucker!"

Only reason to buy a new phone 2015 and onwards for me has always been due to them breaking. Although I do understand people wanting the latest and greatest especially with apple where the resell value makes the new phone quite cheap in comparison to other manufacturers. But most buy them for the fashion statement a 150 dollar phone works about as good as a new flagship phone for 1000$ and a car worth 3000 does about the same as a car for 30000, people have money and seem very willing to burn it quickly, so be happy for their sacrifice! It's just about the only thing keeping the economy afloat anyway.

Hey Linus, do you think it is worth switching to Apple? Idk if you ever made a video about iOS vs Android or Windows/Linux vs macOS. I am a CS student and tbh I always hated on Apple, b/c I thought they have the same specs as other laptops and sell it for 30% more. Is it as userfriendly as everybody always says or am I better off with a Windows or Linux OS.
