OK, but what’s that in real money?

>>83378060You are a nut, your crazy in the coconut.
>>83378060When you're buying 1TB worth of storage on the thing. Why are you buying 1TB worth of storage for an iPhone.
They've actually dropped the price in the UK. Entry iPhone 13 Pro is £949 down from £999
>syrup bucksdont care
>>83378060APPLEKEKS IN RUIN BTFO LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
>>83378136I thought it started at $1000?
>>83378060do *pplecucks really??
Why, or rather how, is Iphone still a thing when Samsung, Huawei and Xiaomi are a thing? Who buys this overpriced crap? WHY?
>>83378177I'm in Canada and it seems to start at $1,399 before tax for the base model (iPhone 13 and 128GB Storage)
>>83378257iPhone 13 Pro, Not base iPhone 13, Sorry.
>>83378114Seems like The Turner Diaries beginning reference.
>>83378177iPhone 13 Mini is $949 before taxiPhone 13 is $1,099 before tax
More tiny incremental changes while Android phones continue to pull ahead. Wake me up when Apple has a 1/1.2" sensor, foldable design, periscope tele, etc...
>>83378060Does this have USB-C now or what?
>>83378326>Android phones continue to pull aheadAndroid phones still haven't caught up to the A13>1/1.2" sensor, foldable design, periscope tele, etc...all shitty gimmicks
Do any of the new iphones had usb-c?
>>83378349I wasn't paying perfect attention, so I may be wrong, but the only thing they said has USB-C now is the iPad mini.Also strange that only the iPad mini gets a refresh to A15 and USB-C. iPad Air didn't get an A15 iteration this time, and I think iPhone stays lightning (not sure).
>>83378349No, outdated before release.
>>83378349Nope. Looks like I'm waiting until next year to switch
Why do they spend so much time on the camera? Do people really care that much?
>>83378415>>83378416>Flagship phone in 2018+3>Doesn't have USB-CIt's already obsolete and shit.
>>83378060>TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY TWO POINT NINE TIMES MY WEEKLY INCOMEThen talk to your parents about a bigger allowance.
>>83378468If people actually cared so much about the camera, they'd buy an actual camera.
>>83378433you do know apple will never switch their phones over to usb c right? they make too much money off it to do that.
>>83378468>cameraIt's the one thing they can pretend they massively improved even though you can barely spot a difference between pictures from iphone 11 and 13.
>>83378571tell me, why would I ever buy an expensive and cumbersome camera when I can do all my photography on an iphone? It's not like most people are pros who actually use more than is given to them. Hell, people buy polaroid trash just to be "stylish" which isn't even 1/10th of what a phone camera can do.
>>83378638It’s like nokia in its last days, coming out with 50MP cameras on shitty phones
>>83378060the mini starts at 800 euro lmao the last time i tried the mini in a store it felt so cheap
>>83378060probably close or the same as what bongs will pay.
>>83378571I can hide my phone camera in my pocket. I can't hide a full blown camera anywhere. Have fun getting robbed :(
>>83378571>37lb paperweight shaped like a stack of bricks that serves a single purposevs>flat, lightweight general purpose computer that fits in my pocketGEE I FUCKING WONDER YOU STUPID FUCK
>>83378060>It's okay when sony does it admit it op you just having a hate boner on anything apple related
>>83379283Also £3000 lol. No wonder smartphones are killing camera sales.
>>83379373Why this shit is so expensive?
I don't understand why anyone would spend this much on a normal phone. Something like the galaxy fold I get because that's unique, interesting, bleeding edge tech. This is just the same phone youve already had just with some new cameras and shit.
>>83379486yea but this one has the apple logo on the rear side
>>83379498so does the one people already have. Usually people have a case covering that anyways
>>83379433sd card slotheadphone jack4k panelsupport for Sony's pro camera equipmenthighly durablefront facing dual speakersno notchetc
>>83379508yea but this one is one number higher
>>83379433Because it isn't meant for consumers. This is a camera extension that integrates with Sony's professional equipment. It just happens to have a phone built into it.
>>83378370The A13 is wasted on the iPhone. I general chips aren't that far off. I'm on a second hand S10+. The phone is pretty smooth.
>>83378060I could book 3 hot chicks for an entire weekend with that kind of money.
>>83378627It's not even that man. Apple spent a shitload of money on the lighting connector and for then to have usb c to come out and be better in every way is a massive blow to their ego.
>>83378136lol, yeah, cloud storage
>>83379559>sd card slot, minijack and 3w speakers cost $2500The absolute state of cultists.
>>83379692you forgot the 4k panel and full 5g not half assed 5g.It's better than 99% of all the shit out there
>>83379661Apple literally sits in USB-IF, brainlet. They made Lightning because the steering committee kept dragging its feet with Type-C and then opted for a larger hollowpoint connector.
>>83379692Yeah but it's Sony... Oh waitJoking aside it's still better than iFruit©
>>83379661Then why did they make their ipads usb c?
>>83379741>worse battery life than 5 year old budget Motorola for an extra 100 DPI on a 6 inch screen and radio tech that will only be rolling out within a decade>500 nits peak brightness
>>83378060same as last year. just wait for the big android manufacturers increase their prices because of chip shortage
>>83379881Believe it started with the 2018 ones.
>>83379765Take your meds
>>83379881Because apple consider the IPod a Computer replacement, unlike the IPhone, And therefor needs computer hardware.
>>83379765You can just disable 5g in settings.
>>83378370>Android phones still haven't caught up to the A13Android phones handily beat Bionic in most real world applications. Bionic just looks good in synthetic benchs.
>>83379773And they keep it because it makes them money.
>>83378060Meanwhile got a 120hz poco f3 shipped to canada for $390 leafbux all in. Would cost $1581 for the cheapest 120hz iphone. I truly for sorry for anyone who's mentally stuck in the apple ecosystem or underage and feels socially pressured to own an apple product.
>>83379261I dont walk around a nigger filled city sorry friend. You're also more likely to get robbed of a phone.
>>83381486iphone feels more premium, better camera, longer update support, higher resale value, less spyware compared to google/xiaomi etc.for some people thats worth the extra, me personally i got a poco x3 but im poor
Android is always garbage unfortunately
>>83378136>1.5k for a phone is okayNo
>>83381606you dont have to buy the 1tb iphone 13 pro max whatever, iphone 13 mini is like 600
Australia always wins.
>>83378571iPhone:>easily fits in your pocket>want to snap a picture, take the phone out and your picture is taken in 5 seconds>it's automatically edited and color graded by the phone, looks awesome instantly>syncs the photos to your cloud accounts, backed up and ready to be shared instantlyDedicated camera:>Huge and cumbersome, costs $3000 for the body and lens, need a backpack and tons of accesories>Turning it on and taking a photo takes some time>Need to know a ton of shit about apertures, focus, colors, lenses etc>After that you need to sit in front of a computer and spend 10 minutes editing the picture to make it look half as good as the iPhone pictureGee I wonder why people don't buy a dedicated camera
>>83381672Mini phones are unusable.
>>83381743To be fair you can get a phone with as good a camera, if not better in some ways, in a pixel phone. And they are cheaper.
>>83381743why would anyone even need a camera in the first place? i have taken maybe 3 photos in the past two yearif my phone came with no camera then i wouldn't even notice it
>>83378060For a fucking notch and humpback camera lmao
>>83381828some people leave the house every now and then
>>83378060oh no no bros!!! How will we ever cope?
>>83378060No fingerprint sensor = no buy, I'll stick with my 8 plus.
>>83381743>>Turning it on and taking a photo takes some timeMy DSLR can turn on and take a photo faster than you can open the camera app, even if your finger is poised above the app icon.
>>83381743>editing the picture to make it look half as good as the iPhone picturePhotos out of my DSLR already look better than iPhone photos.Unless you mean adding filters.
>>83379283WTF I’m selling my Nikon now
>>83382377>>83382331>>83382466>the best camera is the one you have with youyou almost always have a phone with you, but on most occasions people dont carry their full frame dslr + lensalso, the framing and lighting is more important than sensor size and megapixel count
>>83381486I try my best to sperg out against Apple like every other retard here, but iPhones ironically have been the most durable and easiest to repair phones I've ever owned.
>>83382536>>the best camera is the one you have with youI know.Just pointing out things that are just incorrect in that comparison.>Need to know a ton of shit about apertures, focus, colors, lenses etcIs arguably incorrect, too.
>Canadian dollarsBlame your gay ass Monopoly money and your absolutely worthless economy you faggot leafs.
>>83381749stop having fat american fingers then
>>83381813>if not better in some waysin what ways ? having the photos automatically scanned by google ?
>>83382331This is one of the dumbest posts I've ever seen.
>>83378060Retard babby skiddy newfag here. I bought the iphone SE last year. Its alright but I'm sick of ishit and big tech. Just installed linux mint a few days ago. What's the linux equivalent I should use on my phone?
>>83382631grapheneOS, LineageOS or Librem
>>83381743As a photographer, this guy is 10000% correct.
>>83382665What are the pros and cons of each?
>>83382624My camera has a power on to first shot of 0.3s.Does your camera app even load in less time than that? No, it doesn't.
>>83382877you dont have your camera with you at all times and it takes time to take it out of your backpackor do you walk everywhere with your dslr in your hand ?
>>83382915>or do you walk everywhere with your dslr in your hand ?If I have my DSLR on me it is always at hand, yes.And the point isn't about taking it out or being cumbersome to carry around, those are in other points. The point was just>Turning it on and taking a photo takes some time Which is wrong.
>>83382709- Librem is unusable trash- LineageOS can be installed on a lot of phones. Google apps and services are optional- GrapheneOS is only officially supported on pixel phones but it's the most secure out of all of them
>>83382952cringe. Sorry chud. Most people don't have exteme autism like you and want to spend thousands extra and have one more thing to carry around. Phone cameras are good enough for 99% of use cases and people always have their phones on them.
POST THE ELECTRONIC STORE PRICES
Doesn't matter. It could have been 3k and NPCs would still buy it.
>>83378667as a pro photographer i laugh at the idea of you doing 'photography' with your phone. also real bodies aren't 'cumbersome', they're designed with tons of controls at your fingertips. no touchscreen bullshit. i've got lenses that cost more than the new iphone anyway. phonefags can't fuck with physics.
god why does apple use the ugliest fucking representatives of each race in their marketing
Yes I take an iphone SE and an ipad mini thanks....
Daily reminder:Buying a phone because it has a good camera is the purest, distilled and filtered form of cope. You only lie to yourself. Buy a real, better camera from that amount of money.>muh carry a cameraThen don’t want to get a good camera then. Also iToddlers bitching about muh Andorid camera but when their quality comes, it’s okay it fit in my pocket
>>83378571The best camera is the camera you have with you :^).
>>83378571Stacy doesn't want to be a professional photographer lugging that brick around, she wants to snap some nice pics for instagram.
>>83381486Poco F3 isn't compatible with a whack of frequencies used in Canada, and at the end of the day that's pretty fucking important considering people use RoBellUs over Freedom just because of the shittier reception paying far far more than they would getting some samshit or something with better reception.
>>83383225I'm not even arguing that a DSLR is better in all circumstances or that everyone should have one and carry it around all the time.I'm just arguing about objectively incorrect points.
>>83378060The Canadian dollar ain’t worth shit LMAO
>>83378370Correct, iPhone is 50% faster than the fastest Android phone on the market, snapdragon BTFO
>>83382622Are you seriously going to try defending an apple product with the privacy argument?
>>83384046And are twice as fragile, cost a boatload to repar, dont have SDcards, are throttled a year after release because they use trash batteries, dont allow sideloading, are severely restricted, and extremely expensive.You can wait 1/2 a millisecond for snapcbat to open
>>83385329>Twice as fragilehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KFRwQCnsnM
>>83385372Not clicking your youtube link
>>83385372I mean Apple hadn’t change the screen for 5 years, they only made it stronger. Samsung had built in camera on the screen and 120hz.
>>83378060Are people still interested in buying a spyPhone?
>>83378256People with money, poorfag
>>83383468I have a Sony A7R4 with a 24-70mm and when I take much better photos on it I make phonefags seethe.
>>83378060damn canucks are that cucked lmfao, its like 1K in freedom bucks and that takes me two days to make
>>83378136pocophone would probably have better specs in any regard possiblenot like iphone's findmy or other crap do shit anyways
>>83381749How so? I only see a problem with the battery life if you're a power user and it isn't even that bad compared to the original model
>>83385867marry holo, fuck CC, kill kurisu since she dies normally anyways i guess
>>83378571I would carry a smaller dedicated camera for travel and a minimal phone for call/text, but looks creepy taking pictures with a huge camera instead of a phone
>>83385885>caring what normalfags thinkyou've already lost anon
>>83383614What does that bitch NEED for goddamn Instagram anyway? Now hold on, let's do a little camera comparison. The budget phone I'm using now, versus Apple's current most high-end model:https://www.gsmarena.com/piccmp.php3?idType=4&idPhone1=10237&idPhone2=10052The iPhone is over 5x as expensive. If its selling point is the camera, I'm not seeing it!
enjoy your taxes canucks. the government doesn't want you to own shit
>>83385909the selling point is 3DPD, if youre not interested in roastie pussy dont buy an iphone
>>83385862You shouldn't have to buy a "mini" version of a phone to be able to afford a phone. The pricing is ridiculous. I'm not an iPhone user so it doesnt matter to me but its the principle that a phone can cost as much as a decent computer.
>>83378296So anon published his "/pol/ writes a novel" novel.
>>83385885It's not creepy if you're getting paid for it.
>>83381720Now if only they could release a 1TB iPod, so I finally have a good music player for my music.
>>83383540I’ve taken more nudes of my wife with my iPhone (tm) than my $2000 camera with $2000 lens. Stop acting like being able to take a decent photo within seconds with the thing you already have on you isn’t worth the $1000 shekels which isn’t even half of a percent of my yearly income. I’m buying the iPhone 13 Pro and if next year’s model has USB-C I’ll upgrade to it (then not buy a new phone again for like 10 years)
>>83386031>taking nudes of your wifewhat are you a cuck?
>>83386051I plan on “accidentally” leaving an mdisc bluray filled with her nudes in my security deposit box for my kids to find after I die.
>>83386090sound kinda fucked anon but I somehow respect it
>>83378060It's Riiiiiiiiidge Raaaaaaaaacer!
>a fucking LEAF
>>83385609Lol because screen technology changes physical glass durability and performance...???
>>83386090That sounds kind of subconsciously incestual, man. [spoiler]I hate a half-assed attitude. Stop being a wimp, go full-blown incestual already.[/spoiler]
>>83386182no spoilers on g newfag

>>83385667People who think they have money.
>>83378060next phone I buy it's going to be a ruggedphone with a swappable batterythere's no reason to buy the flagship phones, some shit from 5 years ago will run all the same apps and with a swappable battery it will easily last you 10 years
>>83386031>taking nudes of anyone on a fucking phoneit's like you never read the news about NSO and shit like that
>>83386467I’m not a terrorist and the glownigs are more than welcome to check out my wife’s sexy body.
>>83378114At this point I'm convinced that this obsession with OLED's ability to display true blacks, dark mode and all that drivel, is a push towards muh diversity.
>>83379661Apple should switch to Thunderbolt 3 on its iPhones. The Thunderbolt name should be fine since Apple co-developed the original with Intel.
>>83378416>dual microphone array>side by side>next to the fucking speakerLITERALLY WHAT THE FUCK WERE THEY THINKING? AT LEAST PUT THE MICS ON THE SIDE OR SOMETHING, GODDAMN
>>83383540Yeah this. I don't care one bit about the camera on my phone. Every phone already takes decent enough photos.
>>83386783Are you retarded?
>>83386814no, but you clearly are if you need any explanation for that post. look at the pic, dummy
>>83383540>Then don’t want to get a good camera thenHow about me wanting the best camera by quality/portability?Seriously, why would anyone cope and settle for sub-par experience?
>>83378060> No USB-C> No underscreen Touch scannerGuess I'm switching to Pixel this year.
>>83385885>looks creepy taking pictures with a huge camera instead of a phoneWhere the fuck do you live that using a camera is creepy?
>>83378060Who even gives a shit. It doesnt even have a fucking microSD slot and it has USB 2. J
I regret spending $200 for a phone. $50 would have been fine
>>83387020USB 3 spec is unshielded so it literally causes radio interference. Plus why would it matter, who the fuck is plugging their phone into a computer these days?
>>83383468I regret that I bought a redmi note 9s for its camera (48MP) and I still can't see fine details sharply and clearly when I zoom in. AI mode is awful.
>>83386937>Where the fuck do you live that using a camera is creepy?I lived in multiple countries and having camera pointed at me was always super creepy to me.
>>83378060>$2229 to get spied on by glowniggers>still no USB-CHAHAHA
>>83386740It's for multiple reasons>It mildly reduces battery usage because OLED literally shuts off for black, meaning phone manufacturers can continue pretending battery life isn't a real issue>everybody now has eye strain from staring at phones 24/7 and instead of giving you reason to put it down they simply make it easier to stare at forever with dark modes and night shifts to feel like you're doing a good, healthy choice but you're actually just making it easier for your fried eyes to keep scrolling
>>83387049If that's anything like my mi a3,You have to turn on 48mp mode because AI mode doesn't capture in 48mp
>nearly 600 fucking euros for additional storageYou can get 4 1TB micro SD cards for that cash.
>>83387372The jew fears the 2TB max SDXC slot. Fuck Google, Samsung, and Asus for getting rid of it. I can't even record 4k60 on my 90 MB/s write speed SD card on my S20U.
>>83387440It's a right shame, since I've always had Samsung phones and they're mostly excellent.
>>83385958>you shouldnt have to buy a smaller version of the car to be able to afford a car. The pricing is ridiciulous, i want a mercedes S class for 10k new
>>83381567Yes it has a better camera, but when are you fucking faggots going to be satisfied with camera quality? A $200 phone could be IMAX quality and you retards will still be saying "well the new ishit is IMAX quality plus one pixel"You don't have standards, you just like saying X is greater than y so spending quadruple is justified.Enjoy your updates that Apple got sued for and LOST for intentionally slowing down phones. They won't stop.Spyware? You literally upload every fucking atom of data to Apple. The whole thing is Spyware. And they will happily share that info with the DOD dragnet, just like Google.Unlike a rooted lineage os phone. Faggot.
>>83386829Again, are you fucking retarded? This is for calls, and noise cancellation. Say what you want, but Apple’s sound engineering is fucking brilliant. There’s another microphone on the back too.
>>83378416>built in stereo speaker>there's only one speaker at the bottom, unless they're also counting the ear piece, which is facing forward
>>83388151IRL DoD doesn't matter unless you're Taliban. Paranoia is the delusion of individual importance, that what you personally do matters and that you have agency when neither is true.
>>83381284Same narrative we heard before M1 CPUs released. "You can't compare benchmarks between platforms! M1 is doomed!"
Whoever spends that much on a phone (regardless how wealthy or poor you are) is either a moron or really needs it to make money on his side (for whatever stupid reason)
>>83379373>Sony>Cell phoneNah, Apple is just retarded people tax and they get what they fucking deserve.
>>83378571Don’t bother, none of these tards have any idea how shit even the nicest phone is compared to a 2014 dslr with a prime lens. Let them waste their money.
>>83378370Can't even open two apps at the same time. What the fuck is a fast cpu for if you're still using outdated software.
>>83389655And we were right.M1 excels at anything that can be specifically optimized for it. But that means there are cases where it lags well behind x86.It also remains to be seen if it can scale well to higher core counts and speed for actually replacing desktop/workstation CPUs.
>>83379433>>83379692It's a device aimed for a niche group of professional users.It also has HDMI input, which really puts it into a niche category of devices.
>>83378060That's like $1700 of normal money so that's about in line with US pricing.Also, that's the 1TB model, if you really need 1TB then you've got the money for it.
>>83378060who gives a shit about cuck dollar, this is not even a real currencyfuck leafs btw
>>83389685you don't know what it's like to be rich. $2k to someone who makes 3-400k a year is irrelevant. when you can buy 4 of these things with each paycheck, and you already have everything else you want.. 2k is nothing. spending 2k is like "oh i just wanted to buy a new outfit for this dinner" or "oh lets fly to vegas for the weekend randomly first class".
>>83389985>and you already have everything else you wantThis doesn't happen, though.People with more money just find more things to spend it on. Unless they're not consumer whores, in which case they won't be buying the new iPhone just because there's a new iPhone anyway.
>>83378571>>83383468>>83378667>>83381743>>83383614People arguing the point about cameras are missing the target market for phones and how the photos from phones will be used. Just something to think about: instagram is still 1080px, Facebook is still ~2000px. FUCKING EVEN /P/ RECOMMENDS NUKING YOUR PHOTOS TO 1000px. Pictures from dedicated cameras are just crushed to a point where u may as well have used an iPhone anyway because the IQ differences are negligible once the magic of web compression has had its way. In this context framing, lighting, and subject all take precedent over things where proper camera lenses have the advantage over tiny phone lenses like bokeh, depth of field, sharpness, light gathering, etc.The only time carrying around a dedicated camera makes sense is where you are printing your photos or you take photos as part of your job. People doing prints or career photographers who absolutely NEED dslrs make up a minority even among dedicated photographers: see the amount of media/publishing/journalism businesses using phone pictures these days.
>>83378060imagine buying a phone before the SD-UC standard is supported...
>>83390233Dropping the resolution is not the same thing as the quality crushing that Instagram/Facebook does.>In this context framing, lighting, and subject all take precedent over things where proper camera lenses have the advantage over tiny phone lenses like bokeh, depth of field, sharpness, light gathering, etc.No, they don't. Proper cameras still look better. Bokeh/depth of field especially sees no change just because you resize the image.
>>83383468You do know that the majority of pro photography is done with phones right? Pro photographers that use dedicated cameras are literally a niche.
>>83390553>You do know that the majority of pro photography is done with phones right? Pro photographers that use dedicated cameras are literally a niche.No, I don't know something that is wrong.
>>83378571Based.>tfw bought my first real camera and realized just how massively retarded I was when I was buying phones for their camera capabilitiesThere's no competition. $600 entry-level mirrorless camera absolutely crushes every phone there is as well as all phones 10 years from now. >but it's not pocketableBecause it's a real camera. A thin 22mm lens makes it *almost* pocketable. >but I can't instantly post to instagramYeah you can transfer it over wi-fi to your phone.>but it's more expensive than just a phoneI'm pretty sure you can own the same camera for 5+ year and it won't become obsolete. Moreover you won't need to upgrade your phone as often for incremental camera upgrades.>>83390553That's not true.
>>83390458Even without insta/Facebook compression, resizing to 1000px is still small enough that the majority of people wouldn't really notice or pay attention to current post processing bokeh/DOF using a phone lens vs actual shallow depth of field given the average 5 seconds that they spend looking at photos on social media. They care more about the image content than the image quality beyond sharpness and whether it's in focus or not. Yes, anyone who knows anything about the technical side of photography will tell the difference. Yes, you can tell the difference if you spend time looking and pixel peeping or look at images taken side by side between phone/camera. However this is a minority within a minority of people who actually care about this shit enough to matter and in this current climate the sheer convenience of the camera package within iPhones at this point outweighs the IQ improvements that come with "proper" cameras.
>>83390722Man, fake bokeh really isn't getting any better, is it?
>>83382622>I’m too stupid to install a privacy ROM
>>83378370The vast majority of 3rd party vendors destroy Apple in hardware. Apple wins because its verically integrated, and its software runs buttery smooth on its subpar hardware. Android's biggest thing holding itself back is ironically itself. That, and Java as a development language. Like, just lol. Shit needs to be replaced, but it never will, and Apple went ahead and actually gave a shit about tooling and developer feedback with x-code and swift. Google desperately needs a better competitor.

>>83383387BASS! BOSS! BASTE!!!1
Why so expensive?Did the child sweat shop slaves unionize or something?
>>83387372>You can get 4 1TB micro SD cards for that cash.Yes, but this is NVMe storage over PCIe. Not defending Applel, but that shit ain't cheap (but also not €600 expensive).
it's a stupid incremental upgrade. it's like being excited about 8th gen intel when you own 7th gen. why do people care about this shit? are people really spending this kind of money every year?
guys businesses buy their employees iphones to look successful and shit. thats the main use of the iphone, the clean business look. its the rolex of phones thats why they can charge that much
>>83385895Serious question, what's the most worth it iPhone to buy right now?13 doesn't seem much of an improvement and buying as soon as it comes out is retarded when it depreciates so quickly
>>83387140>>It mildly reduces battery usage because OLED literally shuts off for black, meaning phone manufacturers can continue pretending battery life isn't a real issueThis is a lie. OLED screens use more energy when it's displaying light colors. IPS on the other hand uses the same amount of energy regardless of what color its displaying.Most websites, apps and most of the OS' UX uses the color white, so OLED is actually using more battery.>>everybody now has eye strain from staring at phones 24/7 and instead of giving you reason to put it down they simply make it easier to stare at forever with dark modes and night shifts to feel like you're doing a good, healthy choice but you're actually just making it easier for your fried eyes to keep scrollingOLED makes this worse. At low brightness, OLED screens have flickering. Dopending on the screen's flickering rate (now they flciker so fast it's not noticeable) it can strain eyes by forcing them to continually try to adjust, or just send more light than they're adjusted for.And let's not talk about burn-in and blue pixel decay.OLED is a shit technology. The only reason it's popular is because Samsung's marketing campaigns since 2012 convinced people that OLED is "new" and "more modern" than IPS. For OEMs it's great since they can expect users to buy a new device every 2-3 years when their screens die. Which is why TVs and laptops are moving to OLED right now.
>>83393034the most expensive one
>>83393034iphone 11iphone 12 if you want highres screen + oled>>83392918only americans and retards do because, i'm still using my xs and have 96% battery health
>>83393034always the previous gen, so the 12 pro once the 13 is being sold so prices go downI have an XR, probably won't upgrade for a while I don't need it for much, I'll get a 12 pro if there's a good deal somewhere though for the cameras but meh
Random question:I've realized I don't need a PC as my daily driver as all I do is watch Twitch, YouTube, and shitpost on 4chan and other online forums.Maybe do some light Python coding (rarely, and I could probably do that via SSH)I'm thinking about getting the new iPad mini... is it fine if that's all I do? Can I do multiple tabs? (sometimes I watch 2 streams at the same time, and even shitpost on a 3rd browser window). Anything it can't do for my purposes? (I heard it can't play webm's natively, so browsing /gif/ and similar might be a problem)
>>83378060Canadian dollars. You might as well say two bajillion zimbabwe dollars.
>>83393196i have an ipad and i regret buying it, its completely uselesswanna read manga? no good appswanna watch youtube? enjoy the bloated ad-ridden spyware youtube app or use the browserwanna browse 4chan? no apps either, gotta use the browser but it doesnt play webms eitherfinally, it doesnt have a file manager and u cant drag n drop stuff over usb like you would on android because fuck you i guess>Can I do multiple tabs?yes but its tedious and it closes then reloads shit in the background at randomif i were you i would either get a normal laptop or a galaxy tab (e.g. s6 lite, can flash lineageOS without google mutt botnet) or wait for the new chink tablets from realme and xiaomi i heard theyre good
>>83392962A colleague of mine has a pretty cool system where he will buy the newest phone every year and pawn off his old one to one of his family memebers. That way he gets the latest anf greatest every year and his family never has to worry about buying a phone.
>>83393823>sells his used trash to his family instead of just giving it to themwhat a shitty family member lmao
>>83378416why the fucj are they keeping their shitty Lightning connector alive?
>>83386783jewgle users are fucking retarded holy shit
>>83390233>Implying resolution = quality>Implying tiny phone sensor has proper dynamic range>Implying phones dont absolute rape the images you take at night with noise reduction and sharpening filters>Implying phones have good quality lenses>Implying phones have focal lengths available from 14 to over 200mm FF equivalentAlthough I do agree with you that comparing dedicated cameras to phones misses the point entirely. Phones can never replace cameras, if only for the controls. Phones have however replaced 'point and shoot' cameras which were previously used often by dumb boomers, and given zoom zooms the ability to take pictures (read: selfies) anywhere they want when previously they would not have.
>>83378060is it really 4x as good as my 520€ Pixel 5?
