      Galaxy note 10 plus is the most manipulative device made ever made by Samsung. After all the iPhone bashing for being pricy. Note 10 isn't really cheap. Its also in the 1000 dollar bracket. Have skipped the headphone jack to push people to buy cordless headphones and made battery replacements so damn hard as shown on Jerry's channel. This is just duping the average consumer. Atleast iPhone lets us do easy battery replacement that makes rhe phones life good for another 2 to 3 years again. So spare us the negative talk. But thanks for the vibes.

      Iyaz has no clue of the company's model. Apple works with a particular upgrade every year. This year its focus was the camera. They don't make over thr top changes they retain quality over gimmicky upgrades that Samsung and hauwei make. Most of it is useless. In the end, real time comparison, still gets this phone on top.

      Ronnie Jackson yeah the Android Fanboys are out in full force this time of year(iPhone release). They only hate on it because they know they're good deep down and jealous of smooth iOS!! I particularly like how last year so many YouTubers called iPhone XR a fail because of its "low resolution LCD" and they had to eat crow when it was by far the best selling device since it's release. Apple has such a smooth software experience, it just makes tiny things like being a little under 1080p totally moot.

    Another thing the screen is to dark. The phone takes it upon itself to dim the lighting on the phone. I switch from the Samsung to the 11 Pro. I’ve mostly been disappointed to be honest. The one thing I really like about it is the battery life is a whole lot better. There are some features that Samsung doesn’t have that this phone has that I like. The camera is better but it’s still a big disappointment. I don’t have as many glitches in this phone like I had in the Samsung. I’m going to keep this phone for a good while because it’s so expensive. Another thing is is that you cannot do anything that you want like a update, or while you are Talking on the phone and you need to send a text out it will not let you. If you want to upgrade a voice for Siri you have to be on Wi-Fi. That right there kills me.

      First of all it has not had great cameras for years. Although the 11 has improved. Samsung blows it away.

            Wireless charging today is like a hybrid electric car Vs a fully electric car: half way house.

            The charging pad must also be without a wire to be called wireless charging.

                              iPhone with slowest charger is far better than then the best Android.
                              I sold my XS Max and used the Note 10 for one week and instead of being neutral as always now I HATE Android.

                                  5G is not really tested yet. They say they tested but that is a test from 1990. That's funny because we did not even use WiFi just yet XD. So how is 5G tested back then?. I would say it could be a danger to humanity

                                    thats how they make you pay more products of apple. So you will lose a lot of money buying apple products -_-

                                      Im actually glad that people are felt like they are let down by apple.
                                      Their own opinions matter to where they belong in the tech community and.
                                      Only solid apple fans will indulge in the beauty that is the 11 lineup.
                                      Hence, if you cant pay the price, dont roll the dice. Its all in or fold.
                                      Stop these hate comments please.
                                      If you hate it, dont buy.. simple.

                                                Yes apple could add all the features but than what would they do next that would jack the price substantially and no one would upgrade next year

                                                  But this is typical Apple why be disappointed the only thing that shocked me was them lowering the price on something.

                                                      IPhone being a letdown since iphone 6. I still see stores selling the iphone 6. Only plus that i can see is the price has come down at bit.

Yeah, apple is scamming people in their face and they are so blind and obsessed that they defend everything a company does, even though that company doesn't care about them. OnePlus 7 pro all the way! Better ram, 250gb of storage, 4k AMOLED 6.7 screen with 90htz refresh rate. All for 699$. Just accepted that apple is ripping you off people, just don't lie to yourself. Just admit that you're buying the phone as a status symbol and not because is the best because clearly is overpriced for what it does. That would be more honorably than trying to blindly follow a company that rips you off

Say if you have wallpaper and want to show it off you can’t since the apps cover it all can’t resize them or move them where you want to move them. i have an I phone 10 might be the last I phone I ever own. So many things they love restricting you from.

I can always count on you all in helping me with my ‘techy’ decisions (especially when it comes to my Apple products, ‘cause I’m still an iOS-er through and through). 😊

Unless Android can compete with iOS performance wise, it is not attractive at all and a lot of people will still prefer to get an iPhone. 🤷🏼‍♀️
