  1. I tried using an old iPhone se for a week for fun, technically you can get away with it. I can’t believe i used to live with that phone at the time. It’s super small, you can’t type or read and the battery drains way too fast.

  2. Why can’t u guys run stock os vs stock os because I have a old g3 that at the time was the first smartphone with a 4K display nd now runs like crap

  3. I love how apple haters make a review and try to act unbiased. It’s also funny how they compare the price when they spent hours downgrading the software, rooting, and then updating it. That’s part of the cost, and heavily inconvenient,. You also had to replace the battery. Seems like the iPhone didn’t require any tweaks, updates, or hardware replacements. Far less hassle. And that’s why I’ll probably always use iPhones.

  4. Long term iPhones just work better also apple tends to provide updates for years , but in the short term it depends what you want walled garden (iOS) vs customization (android).

  5. the most telling part of who wins this is the fact that to make the android even slightly useable you had to downgrade the software, download stuff on your computer to inject a completely different software package, follow a complicated series of instructions to finish it all, and you lose everything on it. this versus the iphone, which you just update to the latest version of iOS and wander off on with your day

  6. Its 2021 so LINUS pls this video again as androids like oneplus and Samsung giving 3 years of android update officially and pls try to dig in some doffernet custom ROMs like Corvus Os and Project Sakura!!!
