bro dont use powerbank to iphone.. becuause battery health will effect.. ok because i did testing on this thing.. my iphone xs. i use 3rd party charger, powerbank then after one year battery health 87% then i changed to iphone XR then i use only original charger. no powerbank and no 3rd party charger then my battery health after 2 years still 92%
*
Hmm, so if we don't want the battery health to drop, it's not advisable to charge on the go?

We have to stop recalling the good old days... making us sound old... Lots of the younger folks in the forum reading this going huh, Atom? Dopod? Apa tu? We sound like a bunch of uncles, hahaha...
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.
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...

I know what's Atom and Dopod and I'm below 30 haha..

Use your phone to the fullest. If you need to charge on the go, charge. Use well known 3rd party brand. I use Mophie. Battery technology still has limitation. After 2 years confirm charging hold around 90% only. Change new battery (around RM399 with  or RM40 if you have Machines Protection Plan), or more extreme change a new phone. But again, use your phone to the fullest. You paid thousands of ringgit for it.

Good advice.. Thanks.

I use Xiaomi and I don't charge it full.

I have no experience on Mous since i just ordered the clarity for iphone 12 after seeing the reviews on youtube. I do use Rhinoshield previously and i dont / wont use it anymore simply because it isnt protective enough. I dropped my previous phone from waist height and the screen cracked. I must have been extremely unfortunate for that to happen but it happened.

I'm using RhinoShield for the first time and seeing your post makes me worried..

i dunno.. i used rhinoshield for my 7+
drop multiple times from wrist height and higher... so far no problem for me as it survives...

Ok, sure..

QUOTE(Billylimwk @ Nov 12 2020, 09:52 AM)
I believe for a case to be protective it needs to have several layers built into them. Polycarbonate, TPU TPE etc. the rhinoshield only has 1 and the honeycomb design which they advertise so much - its just marketing fluff.

Were you using the SolidSuit?

Thats right, Solidsuit

I see, perhaps it's because it's just a single layer compared to UAG which is 1 piece but actually 2 layers of protection.

QUOTE(attw @ Nov 12 2020, 10:06 AM)
Nice, hahaha...

Bro, IINM, you've been using your iPhone 12 for more than a week already? How's it going? Any initial thoughts with regards to battery life, signal reception and things like that?
*
Yeah, 3 weeks now and so far it's good, battery life is more than a day with browsing and social media, signal strength better than XS.

QUOTE(chiahau @ Nov 12 2020, 10:09 AM)
Err, if that's the case, just use powerbank and charge it to full lor.

Since already in that situation/
Can always use powerbank la but just charge it to full instead of plugging in and out like nobody's business.

That's what I feel helps in prolonging battery life.
*
I thought it's the reverse? Charging to full will degrade the battery, no? I read an article saying avoid charging it to full.

QUOTE(Ydontukickme @ Nov 12 2020, 10:33 AM)
Is this a worth buy? Anyone of you will order it?
*
Nope, after careful consideration, just stick to lightning cable and my current Ugreen wireless charger that I'm not using lol.

Anyone ordered Mous Limitless before?

What material is Speckled Black? I read it's fabric so will it get stained easily or better stick to carbon fiber?

Transferred data via the new quick start feature.

It was better than my old iTunes backup and restore method. Keeps everything including Whatsapp conversation.

Definitely more reliable than restoring from iCloud backup as it is a direct transfer from old device.

Wah izit...  didnt manage to use this feature..
Everything photos videos other apps are exactly the same as before??

Hopefully can try it to transfer from my wife XS to 11 pro later

My iTunes restore backup is nearly complete

Yeah, benefits of using iPhone, it's direct copy from the previous phone.

The point of a case is to protect the phone so if the case scratches up, it protected the phone

iMessage tag and reply features for me because I constantly use them.

I didn't bother with widgets.

Ya, I’m using it first, she gave me two weeks only, but later can negotiate I think, hahaha... I think I won’t get the Mini, it’s a bit too small.. either the 12 or another 12 Pro Max for myself and stop my habit of buying and trying all these Android phones after this, hahaha...
Ya, for branded cases I always go for UAG or Spigen, maybe this round can try some other brands like Rhinoshield and Mous laugh.gif

Yes, yes, go for RhinoShield and Mous..
