If your in Benin City come out let’s set money and try it

Your not the first to argue this

My battery can stay 3 days if I only use it on calls

Oga every phone will last more than 3 days if you only use it for calls, this is not an achievement. grin

1. ios are great devices especially if you’re aiming for simplicity and security, your phone cannot be hacked easily and everything is way more secured than the open source android.

2. Apps work way better and are generally optimized for ios devices and everything runs really smooth.

3 Games run better and smoother on ios than android with most games having 60fps option and many other graphics enhancements while android does not have most times even the flagships, idk why as if the game companies are underestimating android devices.

4. About battery life, I’ll recommend you get the plus models if you really wanna see how strong iphones battery are, most plus models including the X, 11 and 12 series have very good battery life, you can see a low battery mah on paper but when you use it, you’ll see that the battery lasts long as a 4000+mah android phone.

5. ios now is not like before where you can’t download anything outside the app store including movies and media files generally, but now you can do that except for apps tho which is why I have a mid range android am using with my XR wink

6. And the camera and video recording ability is not to be joked with, its very good.

So to enjoy good battery life, I will have to spend 110k for an iPhone X, 11, or 12 when xiaomi and Co are selling good battery life phones below 70k. grin grin grin


As for the camera stuff, Google pixel has reached and passed iPhone in camera quality. You can download gcam on your phone and get photos.

How do you use your phone sir ? Will a new iPhone give a average user 8hrs SOT ?
you obviously don’t know a thing about iPhone battery. I use an xr and i go a day without needing to charge my phone if my phone is on full charge. The new generation of iPhones last longer, I’m talking from iPhone 8 upward

Are Xiaomi and co. Giving you flagship experience at 70K?
Are they giving you the best camera features, Image and video stabilization at 70K? Are they giving you wireless charging at 70K? Are they giving you water resistance rating at 70K? Are they giving you UHD+ video recording and playback at 70K? Are they giving you 5+ years of software updates at 70K? Are they giving you an OLED display at 70K? Are they giving you stereo speakers and etc at 70K?


If you want a battery beast of 70K, you know where to get it, people that need the above mentioned features and more will spend way more than 70K

All these you write means nothing.


At the end of the day, your iPhone is an overpriced product, that relies on branding to sell.

For half the price of some u can get a decent android phone from Samsung or Huawei that can do almost better. With a faster performance tym. The phone brand is rated no 2 after Samsung.

You can tell these to people that know nothing about phones.

I'm referring to SOT you're talking about lasting a whole day, I once used my Redmi note 9s for 2days with 26% remaining but even at that my SOT was a little less than 9hrs because I was mostly just browsing within that 2 days time frame. Your XR won't give you 7hrs SOT on medium usage I'm very certain

I get 12+ hours constant sot on my xr with medium usage. He’s right, new generation iphones have very good batteries and don’t be fooled by the mah number you see online, they last longer or are even on par with androids with 4000mah batteries in usage.

The thing about android phones is that they just put big batteries in the phones like that with little to no battery optimization where as ios optimize their batteries which allows the phones to use most out of the battery without actually draining them quickly. You can confirm this by doing a battery test between a 3000mah samsung s10e and a 2815mah iphone 12 or 2658mah iphone xs, you’ll notice that the s10e will die before the rest of the iphones despite having the bigger battery.

A lot of comments I'm seeing here are just amusing. Well, people must base their opinions on experience or worse, 'what I heard'.
Thing is, I personally don't really like iOS. But as a power user and someone who hates bias I wouldn't mind using one. At all. You see, those of you saying iPhones have bad battery life are either using older-gen iPhones (iPhone 6-iPhone 8 Plus or even the new iPhone SE, which I only recommend to light user who likes the Apple way of doing things) or newer iPhones that have bad battery health.
There is a lot to like about iPhones. The build quality/fit and finish are amazing, only matched by Samsung, Huawei, Sony, Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, Asus, LG and many other flagships (and they don't all feel the same). Apple's color management on their displays is amazing, too. I once held my boss's iPhone 11 and the fit and finish was incredible. It seems one has to pay a lot for that experience. Reviewers have often said that holding a well crafted flagship phone makes you feel you are holding something special, like a Rolex. It may not seem like much, but for someone like me who has seen a lot of ugly-looking and cheap-feeling budget phones, it's like a revelation. iOS may seem boring (and it is) but it is a lot more refined than Android. Granted, it might not matter to you if you haven't used or seen it (afterall, ignorance is bliss, no?) but spend just a day and you will understand that soup wey sweet, well you know the rest. Truth is, to really appreciate the iPhone ecosystem you have to be somewhere like in the States, where everyone isn't running around looking for free basics, or data bonus, or 'abeg helep me on hotspot na' or even stable network, and Apple's and other services just work seamlessly. Otherwise,top-drawer iPhones will just be too expensive for someone like me to use and get the best out of. But if I could afford it without killing myself, hell, I'd grab the iPhone 13 Pro Max when it comes.

Honestly speaking, boss. I mean, the truth is that iPhone prices vary wildly from country to country. In the US, an iPhone 12 and a OnePlus 8 Pro are the same price. In the UK, the OnePlus is 100 quid cheaper. In India, to pick the iPhone over the OnePlus that is almost 600 dollars cheaper and is of far better value is just ridiculous. Unbox Therapy says the iPhone 12 is so expensive in India 'you could book a flight to Dubai, buy the same damn phone and fly back with change to spare'.
P.S.: Watch TechNick's battery drain test and watch the iPhone 12 come second to the Note 20 Ultra which has almost twice the battery mAh. iOS's power management is legendary.
