Well i guess i'm not the only one to go for 128GB Pacific blue, i think Apple mini really good for people who only do web browsing/making phone call and waze? and not really for heavy gaming/photoshooting. But still waiting for real-world performance on the battery on Mini/Max

On top of that, price difference between Pro and Pro Max not really big, might as well go all in

Same thought when i dilemma for Pro Max, Rm400, already spent Rm4899, might as well just get the 30% Battery, Size and all those Camera Perks.... even i don't utilize it.

I’m from EM, the Apple status site stated that the ETA is 18 Nov but now still under the “preparing to ship” stage. I think it mostly like only reach here earlier by 18 Nov...
*
Or "Earliest by 18 November" meanwhile me with SenHeng EM, it should be later than this date. Salesman said will contact me once the phone arrive the outlet. but as of now no ETA

Yup, pretty sure those who bought from Senheng won't receive any sms/info on when the phone will arrive. I guessed it only call/text you by the sales person when the stock arrive. Gonna leave them a bad feedback if they send out the survey for purchase experience

Same situation for me. The sales person answer my question very carefully on the delivery date.

He basically told me, everything is based on billing number sequence - first came first serve.

According to the salesman, i'm the 5th person to pre-order and the 1st to pre-order Pro Max... so i still doubt "first come first serve" haha but nonetheless. I shall text him on 13th november to check again.

Maths, iPhone got the lowest battery capacity there. But nonetheless 7 Hours is good enough.... mind you, those are the SOT there. At least i felt more comfortable having that number than 12 Pro. laugh.gif

Probably asked a few time already .

Im completely new to the apple ecosystem , maybe its time for me to jump ship.

Im not sure whether i should just get the 12 or 12 pro . The differences are quite small , i mean aside for the camera , other differences are discernable.

a rm 800 price difference is a lot. I could get myself an air pod pro .

So is the 12 pro worth it ? or should i just settle for a normal 12.
*
cool2.gif I believe, it's really up to your budget. Lidar scanner is really something up to personal preference. You can live without it. You do get better build quality. But after you slap a case on you can't see the difference (Unless you using clear case). After i saw the review on the battery on iPhone 12 Pro, i straight jump to the pro max.. it's Rm400 more from Pro but you get better value than the Rm800 you paid from standard to Pro.

I'm also like you trying out Apple Ecosystem, i think airpod and apple watch i can wait for later time. I do have my Jabra Elite and the spare Oneplus wireless bullets i got it free from 7Pro. not needed another wireless earphone.

Is the telephoto to die for ? I've never tried apples telephoto yet ? But I do notice that I kind of use a lot of the 2x telephoto zoom on my note 10.
Wont the regular 12 come with a 2x zoom too ? I dont mind losing the portrait 'blur' thing.

Yeah , ill probably just reuse my buds then  biggrin.gif .
Yeah , i think the 12 would be fine . Its probably just FOMO with the 3rd eye tongue.gif
Pro max is probably too expensive and big for me , i'd feel comfortable spending below 5k incl accesories. Yeah , i should probably stave off from buying an apple watch and airpod for the mean time. Its just that im spoiled with my galaxy buds lol . Im still keeping the current phone as a place to keep stuff and watch shows.

Also the current reviews is kind of worrying , on how the battery doesnt last and how the 12 pro throttles on heavy loads. Is it something i should worry ?  I dont bother playing any mobile games but i am a power user.
*
For throttle issue, i think currently only Genshin Impact got affected? Other application probably fine. Anyway, if you're still having your Android phone working, you can use that phone to play games. and keep your iPhone just for your daily stuff, this also help prolong the battery life. innocent.gif Apple never promote their phone for gaming

Im curious, if you dun mind sharing, what prompted you to switch from android to ios?

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

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
