Some of us got no choice coz of the coverage (or lack thereof) from other telcos in out area. So have to live with whatever we have smile.gif

I remember using this for my iPhone 6 Plus and after a few months the cutout for the logo left an imprint on the back of the phone that was difficult to remove! Best to take it out from the case once a while and wipe it when using this type of case smile.gif

Hahaha, so true. It's the sign of the times. But Apple products have a longevity that is unmatched. My 2014 MacBook Air is still going strong, even when running Windows via Bootcamp thumbup.gif

Never used Outback before, only tried Pathfinder and Plasma. Both also quite thick actually, definitely won't recommend it to those who are looking for slim, sleek casings. But protection is really good with those two, so yeah, it's a trade off.

i see. yalo. the phone so sleek, didnt want to get a bulky case for it.

thinking to just buy this ringke since it is slim n provide decent amount of protection:

Ringke is good, except you'll see quite a number of micro scratches and it will yellow over time, but that is the case with most transparent cases.

Yup, this would be the right way of doing it. Hopefully other retailers and telcos follow suit (but I doubt it) laugh.gif

devil.gif  here's the list i wanna do with my iPhone
1) To find evidence that iPhone can't last 5 years.
2) Wanna see what so great about Apple Ecosystem
3) Friend told me iPhone got better sound quality, wanna check using Apple Music compare to spotify
4) Camera capture better picture and capture True/Close to real world color
5) Backup to iCloud is much better than Android's Gdrive.
6) Battery can last whole day.
*
1) It really depends on how you use it and sometimes there's also an element of luck. But in general, Apple products are long lasting. I have two Apple products that are more than five years old (an iPhone 6S and a MacBook Air), so yes, it is possible.

2) Honestly, there's nothing so great about it except if you use multiple Apple products and you have close family and friends who do too, then you'll appreciate the seamless integration of all the products.

3) Don't use Spotify or Apple Music yet so can't comment on this point.

4) Yes, in my personal experience, Apple's camera output produces more life-like colours but it could be a matter of personal preferences - some people appreciate the livelier and more vivid colours from Samsung or Huawei cameras.

5) Don't see how one backup can be better than the other. In terms of ease and speed? I think it's more or less comparable although I have to admit I don't use Google Drive as much.

6) This will be based on your usage, if you're a heavy user then the bigger the battery size, the better. Unfortunately for the 12 series, Apple has reduced the battery sizes across all models vs the 11 series, so moderate usage might be able to get you through a day, but it's not going to match the Android phones with 4500mAh batteries or larger.

Need to manage your expectations bro, or you might end up disappointed and swear never to touch an iPhone ever again laugh.gif

Surprised that i still saw a number of peoples in my company using iPhone 6 & 7, that really made me doubt whether it's true that the phone really can last that long. The only issue they have right now is that Apple no longer support iPhone 6 or older phone, so they also planning to change.  cool2.gif  None of my android phone can last that long, started to lag after 3 years
*
Yeah, my mum is still using an iPhone 5S and it's lagging like crazy, but bear in mind the phone has only 1GB of RAM and for a 2013 phone to be still usable today is a testament of the longevity of Apple products. While that phone no longer receives the latest and greatest updates, Apple still provides critical security updates from time to time - even up to today.

QUOTE(westlife @ Nov 11 2020, 11:59 PM)

Overkill for most people bro. I couldn't even come close to utilizing 256GB laugh.gif

as stated by attw; manage your expectation well, then you may like it. for me, i guess i was too much overestimate it last year when making transition to iOS. for 2020/2021, just wanna give a shot using bigger iPhone then let's see future either will soldier on with iOS or back to android  icon_idea.gif
*
Hahaha, yeah, I get worried reading people's expectations of the iPhone especially if they are coming from the Android camp. While I don't keep my Android phones for long, I do buy and try a lot of them, and the Android or today is far different from the Android of say 5 years ago. It's every bit as fluid as iOS, manufacturers made up for the shortcomings of poor memory management by giving you more RAM in a phone than a computer server and addressing unusual battery drain by giving you huge batteries. That's not how Apple operates though so it's good to be able to distinguish the different approaches.

QUOTE(MilesAndMore @ Nov 12 2020, 01:46 AM)
Probably because it only started to lag after 5 years ? Prior to upgrading to iOS 14 it was still okay.

iOS 14 is nice but it has its issues, particularly for a relatively new iPhone such as the iPhone XS. iPhone XS is my first iPhone that did not give me battery problem, that was until i upgraded to iOS 14. Overall battery performance is still okay but it wasn't as good as it was. Last time it can last me one day, like from 10AM to late evening around 9PM or so with lots of picture taking and video filming. Luckily i don't play game though.
*
I updated my 6S to iOS 14 as well. Err, it's not really that bad based on light to moderate usage but it is showing signs of ageing. Battery life is poor but that could be due to the battery degradation rather than the OS laugh.gif

myself also a hardcore apple fans. STABILITY and SIMPLE to use is one of the key features make me stick with apple (ya, i am using iphone since 1st generation, i only skip 3gs due to the ugly fatty design, and also 8) . another key factor, is the solid quality provided by apple, the made of iphone is outshine others.

i also a mix user before conclude into apple....i started with Nokia, Window mobile (O2 mini/atom) , blackberry, Android i did tried a few...after all, i just love apple....most of iphone usage is 1 or 2 years, never have battery life issue, or hang..no at all...the one with me longest is 7+ which last me bout 4 years, and still running strong except for battery life..

that my experience with iphone....next, i wan to get a M1!!!

Yay, another old timer Windows Mobile kaki here! I had the Asus P565 and was tempted by the O2 Atom but waited and went for HTC Diamond instead. Never tried Blackberry but did have a Palm PDA before that. Nice to reminisce on the good old days!

I remember DOPOD back then. Used it for less than 1 year for business use. Battery life after enabling Exchange Activesync was TERRIBLE! Organization changed to Blackberry after that - miss those days when battery life was 2-3 days lol!

-edit- checked old emails, we were using DOPOD C730 and boy I got a long history of complaints on that phone lol!

I haven’t. I’ll drop by the resellers outlet to have a look at the iphones tomorrow. If they have the color I want, then just buy it. Else, I’ll just order from Apple online store which is my preferred choice. Not in a rush though.

Have you got your phones?
*
No, collecting mine from maxis on Saturday. Fingers crossed they don't screw up. The entire pre-order was quite a fiasco if you kept up with the complaints in the maxis iPhone thread.

QUOTE(Lon3Rang3r00 @ Nov 12 2020, 08:44 AM)
Due to Covid-19, now everyone probably stuck in their city. In case i got the phone and never come back to this thread so i better ask now. What powerbank you guys used for travelling? I heard iPhone does support a number of PD Protocol that allow fast charging over Powerbank. My Oneplus 7 Pro still a hit or miss, but previously i carry the AC Adapter with me and plug in any outlet i can find for fast charging, if connect to a power bank (which i'm using Xiaomi 1st gen Powerbank) it probably will take hours and the power bank probably died first before my phone got fully charge haha
*
My biggest complaint on Covid is being unable to travel hence no photos to take, hahaha. Plus being stuck at home and just using WiFi means battery consumption is a bit artificial since it tends to consume juice on WiFi then it does on LTE. Oh well...
