Are you getting the iPhone 13? 📱

It cums with no charging ports or any ports at all so you charge wirelessly. What do you think of this?

No. Wireless charging heats up the battery too much, leading to earlier battery degradation. I have the 11 Pro Max and even the fast charger it comes with does the same to a degree.

Also, the boxy square redesign looks and feels less sleek to me.

I have an X, and I might if that screenshot of onscreen Touch ID is true.

If the phones have the "safemag" magnet that attaches it to the charging base, then I'm fine with it.

If it doesn't ... I've laid my phone on my charging pad many times "not quite right" and end up with a dead phone in the morning.

Does the iPhone still not have a slot for an SD card? If I would even consider buying one of their devices (which I wouldn't as I refuse to give one red cent to that company) not having SD card capabilities would turn me away.

The camera lenses still protrude. I.e., the back of the phone is still not flat.

No. I want something new concept. I'll know it when I see it.

I would never own an iPhone to begin with, I'll stick with my Google Pixel phones. That said, being completely portless is a horrible idea. Wireless chargers aren't cheap, so forcing people to buy multiples of them for their home, vehicle, and to have at their workplace sucks.

Wireless earbuds aren't cheap either. Don't get me wrong, I love my Pixel Buds 2, but there are still times when I have to use my Google Pixel USB-C earbuds as well while the wireless ones are recharging.

What if your internet/modem/router is down or not working for some reason, and you need to transfer important files to/from your phone physically via USB/USB-C? Can't do that either.

When you need to use wireless earphones to use an iPhone, that’s when they finally lose me.

Apple’s Earbuds are very sensitive to clogging, and I have dermatitis in my ears — I’ve wasted $150 on buds that clog in two weeks already.

iphones have become prohibitively more expensive for nominal upgrades with each passing year. Innovation is slowing and whereas once you could tell the difference between phones released one year apart these days you can have the same relative performance for about 3-5 years' worth as a casual user.

One only needs frequent updates if they are used for digital work or being an Instaho whose feed consists of neverending shirtless dirty bathroom mirror selfies.

R8, what are they clogging with? And other earphones don’t?

OP, the vast majority of DLers are still getting to grips with their Nokia.

by Anonymousreply 11Last Tuesday at 10:15 AM

R11 But they're still most comfortable with their Princess Phones.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
