I was aiming for mini but end up with pro max. Maybe now is the best time to get mini one.

Mini is very frustrating, coming from iPhone X; its battery performance is really disappointing and cannot be used as my daily driver. 😢

Anyone tried the CASEIER magnetic powerbank? Is it a real deal? Is the magnet suction strong enough with case without magsafe?

Just bought the Nomad Case Rugged Folio. Really good quality. Not yet use but i can sense that this case will be offering a good protection.

Nice! Do exercise a bit of care when using it if you are OCD about scratches or water marks though - It’s a bit of a “manja” case but the overall quality is good.

Depends on your budget - something midrange would be Ringke Fusion/Fusion X or if wanna splash a bit more cash probably UAG Civilian.

Having bought every iPhone since iPhone 4, if I recall correctly, promos and discounts only started coming about during iPhone 7 series onwards, I remember seeing a RM500 off retail prices somewhere in March during that time, four or five months after launch. I think moving forward if you can wait a few months, best not to buy iPhones at RRP during launch if you wanna save some $$$.

Just a bit smaller, not totally game changing.

Apple should consider revive touchID and just go for a small punch hole for selfie-cam instead.

Yeah. Last time totally no discount even at reseller until the next iPhone model launched. Now can see discounts once in a while.
