  1. I think I'm going to upgrade. I'm not a huge fan of upgrading smartphone but right now I'm having issues with my iPhone X (it's been more than 3 years of using it).

  2. After watching only 3 minutes of the review it might be the best visuals if have ever seen in a video. Literally everything is phenomenal the music the video editing, even the reviewer has a charisma. Keep going verge u really had done a great job thanks deter…

  3. I have been using 12 pro since launch last year, the battery is amazing, half day with normal use, a bit gaming and watch video.. what is spectacular about apple is they manage to make iphone battery a quiet small than android but will last same as bigger android phone..

  4. Awesome that you mentioned the fact about the selfie camera, I also agree with the fact that it needs improvement. Hopefully they will work on the selfie camera as well for future models.

  5. “Worth the upgrade” is a relative expression. From the reviews against the iP12, it’s easy to say “maybe not,” but in the case of my iP 6, yeah, it’s worth it, so it’s an iP13 Mini for Christmas.

  6. I’m loving my 13!! I upgraded from the SE 2020 and the difference is amazing especially the battery life! My only regret now is I should’ve went with the mini because I loved the small size but I’m getting used to this size. The blue color looks awesome
