    8:57 you're saying lightning can handle more power than micro USB, but iPhones don't support fast charging out of the box, because you have to buy another cable and wall adapter. With my micro USB phone I can fast charge immediately.
    I don't understand what you're trying to say

    35 secs in and I’m laughing because since coming from an apple and buying a Samsung S9+ I’d say the s9 has more bloatware apps than apple. And the fact you cant delete fb annoys the fuck out of me.
    I’m actually now wanting to go back to over priced apple!

    I’m going to keep my SIM free 256GB iPhone 7+ (I paid $1,100 for it in 2017) until it breaks or Apple: 1. Gets rid of the notch, 2. adds a fingerprint under glass option, 3. moves to micro led display (everyone praises OLED as if screen burn in and color shift do not exist but since my home screen is displayed so often I don’t understand how this will not be an issue for long term ownership), 4. makes an optical image stabilization 4x telephoto rear camera (at concerts 2x telephoto lens is insufficient and shaky), 5. makes a better battery, 6. Includes 802.11 ax WiFi. If it breaks before that happens and a fix is not cost effective then I will go with the high end tricked out Android Samsung model.

      #1. I think you literally ignored what he said for like a quarter of the video. More Android phones have OLED and have had OLED sooner than iOS phones. (OLED is just better)
      #2. I don't know if you're old enough to know what context "pervert" should be used in.

    Stop calling it Android you loser. You're bunching flagship phones with lesser models of other companies. iOS is a renamed android OS. Apple is one company, Samsung another, and so on and so forth.

    • Kizonn

      We all know this, but OnePlus, Pixel, and Samsung all use Android and in many ways are more customizable, has better camera quality, more or less. It's not worth the effort saying Samsung when the other phones I mentioned use Android as well, and all Apple fanboys know when they see the thumbnail is "Android = Samsung = Bad?".

How do you get the browser to come on after you connect the tablet to the wifi network? I clicked a link in the tablet and get an error message saying it cannot connect to the website. What am I doing wrong? If anyone knows the answer please do respond!

    I'm an iphone user. My last android phone was HTC One m7, used it 2 years. And I jumped ios in 2015 with 6s. 6s>6s plus>8.. And now i'm using iphone X from 15 months. But I'm bored. I love iOS but new android phones looks very good, not for software maybe but hardware. Many options available And next week i'll switch op7 pro. 3-4 years ago android wasn't fluid and laggy sometimes but software is also good nowadays. So I think both are very good and has pros and cons. Maybe
    I will buy an iphone again in the future. i think being a fanboy for a phone is bullshit. Lastly sorry for bad English :D

    Does Android finally have a seamless music playing app that rivals itunes and (not that I recommend everyone to do) is pretty safe to navigate songs while driving? I need something beyond drag and drop that organizes playlists cleanly, lists alphabetically by Artist or Song within your Playlists and has clear, easy to reach options for shuffling and queuing. If this could be done on lock screen that's a big bonus. Have brokenish versions of both phones but honestly my music is 90% of the use for my phone so i'd like to be able just to get a cheaper Android and avoid Apple. Appreciate any recommended apps.

    Looks like someone haven’t used an iPhone...
    1. Apple does not force you to download apps from AppStore
    2. There are 3rd party stores like AppValley, TweakBox, TutuApp, and many more that allow you to download apps for free
    3. This is why androids are open to malware and viruses
    4. You know, one company can’t release 1000s of phones for everyone’s taste, right?
    5. Technically you save money by buying an iPhone because it has a lifetime thrice as long as an android flagship. Still rocking my iP6s without any issues.
    6. Most of android phones that use USB-C are actually the same speed as normal Micro USB, the same as the lightning port
    7. Android Face recognition can be fooled by a photo
    8.Dude there’s a feature called Reachability on iOS for that.
    9.Always-on screen feature is there on iOS 13 Beta
    PS: I use both Android and iOS (Samsung galaxy S8, iPhone X, and iPhone 6s)

    I hear you with everything you have said, and I just can't relate to any of it personally. Android users, do you, love yourself, I support you. But my iPhone is perfect in every way, FOR ME. Android allows for too much customisation IN MY OPINION and therefore does not appeal TO ME.

    And for the record, we have always had a back GESTURE (which in my opinion is faster and better than a back button), so you don't need to ever stretch your hand for that back button on top.
