    Diehard Nexus/Pixel user goes 12 Pro Max

    I also moved to the stock Apple keyboard once swipe became part of it. SwiftKey was my mainstay on Android and then iPhone but had some issues with entering WiFi passwords when I used it on my iPhone a while back when staying at hotels on trips so I removed idid not have the same issue with the...

    Diehard Nexus/Pixel user goes 12 Pro Max

    I have tried several but always come back to Safari. Ad blockers are a mixed bag and I’m not using one right now.

    Diehard Nexus/Pixel user goes 12 Pro Max

    It is made of Aramid Fiber so grip is excellent. If you ever used one of the OnePlus Karbon cases it’s that type of material but thinner and lighter. Evutec makes the OnePlus Karbon case which is similar in thickness to the other Pitaka case the MagEZ. The Air is a bit tighter weave so a...

    iPhone 12 Pro and Max

    I went from the 11 to Pro Max and no regrets. Had plus sized iPhones before and to me if you were OK with a plus size phone before then Pro Max is fine. Screen is a major upgrade from the regular 11 as the quality is excellent. I did turn TruTone off as it can be yellowish with it on and...

    iPhone 12 Pro and Max

    I could care less about 5G at this time. MmWave is a ways off and the “5G” in most areas is limited. I bought my 12 Pro Max for the bigger screen and battery. I had used the Plus sized phones until the X and then went to the regular 11 but have always missed the bigger phone so bought the 12...

    Pixel 5 early news

    For the Verizon crowd, Best Buy is knocking off $200 from the price for the Pixel 5 down to $499.99. I imagine you have to activate the line but if you are on Verizon and sticking with them you could save some cash.

    iPhone 12

    A bit taller than an iPhone 8 Plus. Same width and a touch thinner. About 1 oz. heavier. 6.7” screen (~87.4% screen-to-body ratio) vs 5.5” screen (~67.4% screen-to-body ratio). If you didn’t mind the size of the 8+ the 12 Pro Max should be about the same physically. Slightly larger than...

    iPhone 12

    Just swipe left or right on the very bottom (a white bar will show up and you can flip between open apps, left or right). Or slight hold from the bottom to bring up all the apps to flip through. Swipe down from upper right to get to control center. Swipe down from upper left to get...

    Pixel 5 early news

    Don’t forget you have Google backing the hardware. OnePlus is not who you want to deal with if you have a hardware issue. I have dealt with both companies. Google cross shipped a replacement phone. They take your CC info, ship you a replacement phone, you send your phone back with a pre-paid...

    From Pixel 4 xl to S20, Oneplus 8 pro, 8t, or wait S21?

    If the camera is high on your list OnePlus should not be at the top of your list. The hardware has been good but their software/processing has not been to the same level as Samsung or Google. However, if you have been happy with the the OP6 camera, I would expect that the 8T camera would be...

    OnePlus 8 launch April 14th

    Probably not what OnePlus is hoping for with the continued increase in price this release. I wonder how long before OnePlus has their first price cut this time on the OnePlus 8/Pro For those that have the 7T, are you upgrading to the 8/Plus? If so, what made you upgrade...

    OnePlus 8 launch April 14th

    Just wait a month or two for the one inevitable price drop. Not the best time to be releasing a premium priced phone so I would expect some OnePlus deals shortly like they have done on previous releases.

    OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro

    No argument there but they are doing the same thing essentially as mmWave 5G is magnitudes faster than the 5G T-Mobile is activating. It will give many a bad taste for what 5G will be capable of when they don’t see speeds any faster than current LTE (which is fast enough for most users to begin...
