      1. No Big Dreams

        BIGEST Mistake IS😋Still i want to stick with apple...🐵

      2. Quantum BlaZe

        F*ck the home button I’m so freaking annoyed with it

      3. SoulsBorne Geralt

        *Great phone untill the battery runs out,* *Then you have to choose to either cut 420,000 trees OR buy a new phone*

      4. Barry McMahon

        Bro do you work for Apple or what?? All through the video all you done was to try and up sell everybody!

      5. Ultra

        Needs touch id and usbc before I buy it.

    2. lexie flores

      Coming from an iPhone 8 user, is the iPhone 12 pro really not worth it? I want good camera quality

    3. lexie flores

      Coming from an iPhone 8 user, is the iPhone 12 pro really not worth it? I want good camera quality

    4. kekoa santiago

      thank you for helping me make the wise choice on this phone. I was split between the pro and pro max but now I for sure want the pro max due because of your clear explanations.

    5. JRTULOVE 43V3R

      Apple , don't like this video jajaj

    6. theradashack

      Too many commercials is making your vids unwatchable.

    7. mohammadkwt

      Good thing apple didn’t price them at crazy rate

    8. alejandro carmona

      Im all for supporting channels and using affiliate links. But to say not to buy apples charging box and to go with ankers just because its smaller and to use your link is a little too thirsty for my liking i thought you had a valid reason to go with ankers. A little disappointing

      1. alejandro carmona

        @Max Tech appreciate the response. Now idk if I would those are valid reasons why to steer away. I agree they are "reasons" but the price is what? 2-3 dollars difference? I think it's okay to spend up there to make sure you have the original box that 💯 not damage the battery. Rather than saving 2-3 for a smaller brick. A valid reason in my opinion would be, if for example the anker was proven to not damage your battery or if it'll charge faster or maybe even if it's half of the price. But again 2-3 isn't enough for me to be recommending not to buy the better/safer option.

      2. Max Tech

        Valid reasons: less expensive and it’s basically twice as small.

    9. Carlos Rodriguez

      Just paid $316 for the iPhone 12 via sprint and a two year contract


      I'm torn between the 12 Mini and SE 2020. I keep the phone in my pants pocket and the current 7 w/ case is large and heavy. I basically use my phone for calls, email, web browsing, 2,138 songs, 1,547 photos, social media and 61 apps. My iPhone 7 has 128 GB capacity with 85.95 GB still available. I'm in the golf business so battery life is important so the Mini concerns me on that front but 10 hours talk/email should be fine. Verizon is my carrier. I look forward to receiving your suggestion. But again, fitting in my front pocket w/ a case is my first pref. Thanks!

    11. Christian Ibarra

      I want the 12 pro max just because I want a bigger iPhone LOL ,

    12. Shanklevision

      1. 5G is all the same across all models 2. Battery life on the mini is lower 3. Display is the same on both pro and normal 12 4. pro max has a better camera than the pro 5. If you’re buying an iPhone 12 get 128gb 6. Buy an iPhone 12 over an iPhone 11 7. Don’t buy third party chargers for your 12 8. Don’t buy a third party case, MagSafe won’t work. 9. Get more RAM in a pro. 10. Buy a third party charger from anker 11. Something about Verizon 12. Don’t wait till next year to buy

    13. Amie Eichstadt

      Well yeah, that's what we expected

    14. Silvano Franco

      I have an iPhone 6s with 16gb, I’m thinking it’s time for an upgrade, 12 pro is my go to, or should I just get the 12?

    15. Paris V.

      You explained so well

    16. Max Klose

      I head the 13 is not even a phone ! You just make payments haha phones are getting out of control. I remember when the first iPhone came out but shit at&t was expensive that I need just getting an iPod touch and used it as a phone with the jailbreaks

    17. ChristinaFaith

      I’ve xsmax 256 gb w/VZW. I think I want to go to T-Mobile.... Idk if i Should get the 12pro regular or just the 12 ...

    18. ThaWord

      Mini probably

    19. Edward Deaney

      I’ve found it easy to choose the phone model, but the colour choice is destroying me!

    20. Coach Yo

      Well done. Great video

    21. Gabriel Berkowitz

      I was going to get the iPhone 12 pro but the camera was the main reason. Now I know I’m going to get the iPhone 12 pro max thanks! I’m just worried it’s going to be too big. I have an xr and love the size. How much bigger is the 12 pro max?

    22. Kyle Y

      iPhone mini is the way to go. Powerful as iPhone 12, and easy on pocket. Why pay extra $100? Be smart and get “mini” which is 5.4 screen.

    23. Artur

      Mistake #11: Verizon actually does lock the device for 60 days from purchase. The only way around this is to be active duty military on deployment. They say this is to protect them from fraud.

    24. vara fouroneone

      I'm an Android guy but want to surprise the wife with a new iPhone... she always gets models that are 2-3 cycles behind to save money. This upgrade seems like it would be worthwhile. I know nothing about Apple products so your video was very helpful. Thanks!

    25. Eden

      I got the iPhone 12 Pro. The max was just way too damn big lol and camera was the most important thing to me

    26. jakubwo

      is it certain that the battery life in 12 mini will be worse tho? 11 pro is smaller and has weaker battery than 11 yet it performs better battery-wise.

    27. marioteki

      You forgot to mention current iPhone sizes is causing arthritis and muscular problems specially on the thumb for many people who use it with one hand. iPhone 12 mini might be the only way to have a healthy hand again after years

    28. Muhammad Badar

      do the size of 12 pro max (6.7 inchs) same as samsung A51 (6.5 Inchs)? Actually I want to know that how big is iphone 12 pro.

    29. Charles Lee

      I was thinking about getting the 12 pro max I’ve still been rocking my 10 Xmax but doesn’t seem like to many changes , was also considered note 20 ultra I jus don’t know what to do at this point

    30. Matt

      Buy the 11 Pro on a good deal instead of the 12.

    31. No Big Dreams

      BIGEST Mistake IS😋Still i want to stick with apple...🐵

    32. Steven Corbo

      Apple decided to go to every other company and buy their parts and then just put their chip

    33. Steven Corbo

      iPhone 13 will be made up of return parts from Samsung

    34. Frank Arentz

      Who's watching this after already buying one

    35. Sueann Kim

      why do i still want the iphone 12 pro..... why whhy idk why

    36. Steve Kagan

      this is a useful, clear and informative video - thanks

    37. Marc Arne

      7:30 And that's the worst thing from Apple. When they clearly save 120hz for their top line 1k+ phones and tablets. That really pisses me off considering Samsung budget line has had it for years.

    38. Zenorthodox

      imagine buying an iphone without a charger in 2020 OmEGaLuL its clapped

    39. EG_DARK_FF /Montage_Offical

      Me: Finally I sold my kidney to buy iPhone 11 pro max Apple: Presenting iPhone 12 pro max Me: 😵😵

      1. x•Fahrenheit 25


    40. J L

      Haha people saying “2020: iPhone won’t come in the box” haha so funny haha so quirky haha you’re so creative and smart haha

    41. Robin Kumar S

      Buying any of these is a mistake for me so I upgraded from iPhone 7 to iPhone SE. Over 4 days now no regret and happy.

    42. siegeaye

      Thanks heaps! Almost got the pro but settled with 12 now! 😊

    43. Red Rose

      Nice video very well explained

    44. Lit Bro

      My iPhone 8 is doing great for me.

    45. Ron S

      Very helpful video!

    46. Yourboilevi

      Didn’t they come out with 4 models like the iPhone 6s. Well the iPhone 6s came out latter nvm

    47. Charizard28

      I used iPhone 11 Pro Max 512GB it will go away and getting my iPhone 12 mini 256GB.

    48. J Garcia

      I haven't the slightest interest in ever buying another Apple product...but I find all your videos to be satisfyingly informative, complete and fair. This was no exception!

    49. Charizard28

      Mistake number #28 - Anker brand sucks

    50. Evi1ways

      Mistake One. Buying an iPhone.

    51. Henri' Murphy

      Great Vid. Thanks!

    52. A I.

      I have the iPhone 8. Was thinking of 12 mini but after this video, the 12 looks perfect for me

    53. Karma Karma

      paid review


      When apple provide punch hole camera and rectangular camera module shape please apple

    55. SexyLex04

      Nice video. I went with Pro mainly because I need 128GB and a T-Mobile customer. The extra $150 was worth the extra camera and features to me .

    56. shifter

      im gonna get the 12 pro max, i got the 10s max rn and for a 5,3 person i have ridiculously big hands, i can hold the 10s max just fine even if the 12 max is bigger i can probably still hold it fine XD, and i do have pretty big pockets so the 12 will also fit just fine, also with a bigger screen, better cameras and the bigger battery, it is such a huge upgrade from the 10s max

    57. Speed Fiend

      On the differences between the 12 and 12 Pro you forgot the Night Mode Portrait option only available with the 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max.

    58. joshua Patterson

      Hate the flat sides

    59. Speed Fiend

      Question: Does the Verizon iPhone come with any added Verizon software?

    60. IDGAF!!!!

      So what are u saying don’t buy any ? I’ll just stick to my i7

    61. 松萧劲

      another year of shite, the magnetic part seems weak and pointless. it is attached to a cable, so why not just use a cable as it makes no difference at all. apple could have not done this crappy gimmick and just allowed usb C like everyone else. A lovely resign though on the front screen with no notch this ti..............oh.

    62. Ritesh Bhagwati

      Superb coverage 💯

    63. Minhthi Detzel

      All this stuff is so advanced compared to my 5s right now hahah

    64. Yoshi24

      People don’t be scammed by 5G, unless you’re in a large city there is no 5G. 5G waves only reach 1000 feet, 4G goes five miles. This means 5G towers won’t be around the country for a WHILE, and if your phone says “5ge” that isn’t 5G, it’s just a fat lie.

    65. Fang's Pawprints

      _Omg the description is so thorough_

    66. woodaddy3

      I am looking to upgrade to either a 11 Pro Max or 12 Pro . I do a lot of outdoor photography and some video . I am wondering about the battery too . I have a 7 Plus 128 now and with trade in I can get either the 11 Pro Max 256 or 12 Pro 128 for about the same price , $50 difference in the two . The 128 storage was fine with me , so not concerned about extra storage in 11 Pro Max . I just want to find out which one do you think would be the best phone and camera combination .

    67. BigZ_O3

      iPhone 12 pro sounds a lot better than the 12. He made it seem like the 12 is based on the value?

      1. serdy ximi

        15W chargers only work on the pro max

    68. Mia Walton

      To be honest I’m not sure if I would want 800 nits I’d rather 0 in my hair 😂

      1. serdy ximi

        max isn,t worth that much more. But to each his/her own, yes?

    69. Snowy Traveler

      Mistake #13 is buying the iphone 12 itself without a charger and an earphone.... #ripoff

    70. Jash Hamme

      Would you upgrade from 11 Pro Max to 12 Pro Max if you don’t care too much about the better cameras?

    71. 2702

      I preordered the 12 pro and you convinced me to cancel and wait for the pro max

    72. BriGuyInNY

      Watches Video. Still orders a Pro because I actually have no idea now why I did... Oh well, at least it’s in Pacific Blue, because what other color would you get, come on now.

    73. BriGuyInNY

      But... but... but... It’s a “Pro”...

    74. Jay Maunder

      This vid 6 days to late 😅

      1. Max Tech

        You watched this vid 6 days too late haha!

    75. Itz Dom

      This man has t-mobil cheap skates get a iphone12 pro

    76. Maxine Janoki

      This was so helpful thanks 😊

    77. Steven S

      Great video! I'm a long-time Android user who is in the process of switching from AT&T to Xfinity Mobile. The iPhone 12 may be a better deal than the Samsung A71 as I'm looking at for 5G. It may be time to jump onto the Apple "bandwagon". Saving this video for future reference as I'll need a new phone case and magnetic charger too afterwards. Thank you for being such clarity. P.S. My husband had received the iPhone SE 2020 for his birthday from his brothers and he misses his Blackberry (he uses the iPhone for work only).

    78. Erfan Mohamadi

      Bro bruh am going to get the pro max ( reson) am spoiled and I want the best

      1. Erfan Mohamadi

        And 14 idk why I need the best I just want it

    79. Filip Stojcic

      Im thinking about bying 11 pro bc of the mat green colour, its nicer, plus with the 11 pro i GET A CHARGER AND HEADPHONES so i think 11 pro is a better option then the regular 12 which looks like basic 11 🤷🏻‍♂️ Btw mag safe is not turning point for me or anybody normal

    80. Sadleast

      Hey. I consider buying the normal iPhone 12 because i want a new refreshing design which i loved in the iPhone 5. I own a 11 Pro Max right now. Is the 11 Pro a better phone than the 12? Confused if this would be a crazy downgrade or not. @Max Tech

    81. shrivathsa g kumar

      Very helpful video

    82. Cedric Hollingsworth

      Those 3 cameras are different! Iykyk

    83. Vanessa JazP

      I just bought the 12-pro, actually. For me, the LIDAR feature alone is worth the extra cost over the regular iPhone 12. However, the improved telephoto lens and sensor of the pro-max isn,t worth that much more. But to each his/her own, yes?

    84. Moonwired

      15W chargers only work on the pro max

    85. Tech Analysis 2020

      Awesome Video.

      To the one reading this, you are precious and valuable even if you don't feel so. Jesus loves you ❤ He paid a price on the cross for our sins. He rose on the third day and defeated death. He took the punishment in our place. He did this out of his inconceivable love for us. He can revive your situation no matter how messed up it is. Don't end your life at any point. There is hope in Jesus. You just have to humble yourself and call out to him "wholeheartedly" and he will answer you. He set me free from porn addiction and masturbation in 2018 which I struggled with for almost 10 years. I was close to death three times and he saved me. He changed my lustful heart. He can transform your life if you let him. You just have to repent from your sins and transfer your trust from yourself to Jesus. He will give you the peace which surpasses all understanding, even in the midst of trials and tribulations. Fear won't grip you anymore because you will receive the assurance of eternal life when you believe in Jesus. He is the way to heaven. He paid our fine by shedding his sinless blood for our sins. Our good works cannot get us to heaven because those are like a bribe to the judge of the universe. This is a very serious thing. We never know when our last minute on earth is. It could be any second, hour or day from now and if we don't have forgiveness for our sins, we will end up in Hell. We cannot take our money, riches or fame with us when we die. We have to give an account of our life to God. We only have chance till we are alive on this earth. Please think about this. Don't let pride stop you from knowing the truth. I was prideful before and rebelled against the living God and forsook the truth just because I didn't want to lose. Humble yourself and call on to Jesus from wherever you are and ask him "sincerely" if all these things are true. He will reveal it to you. He will open your heart to the truth. You can experience him personally. Try it. You won't lose anything. I am writing all this because I really care for you. Even though I don't know you, I know that your soul is extremely precious to God. May God bless you :) Are you a good person? (A short video): kgup.info/get/hXqHhoCqmqGaq6U/video

    87. MaglorMusic

      Excellent video! ;)

    88. Johanna Gilbert

      Well after reading most of the comments and seeing the video, I just think I will stick with my current XS.

    89. Mark C

      I heard the iPhone 13 will be Made into Contacts.

    90. Miles Anthony

      So should I keep my XS Max I paid $556 for back in February of this year? I want a smaller footprint and Verizon is giving $440 trade in value to get the 12 pro.

    91. Mark C

      I’ll just wait till Apple makes an “ALL SCREEN iPhone” & stick to my iPhone 11 Pro Max b/c there’s Really NO DIFFERENCE between the 11pro & 12pro. This guy is trying to Hype-Up the iPhone 12 in every sentence he says when there’s “No Big Difference” between the 11 & 12 iPhone.

    92. Allison Flores

      Will photo files and videos be larger due to all the new improvements and better quality, would the new base memory be enough or would you recommend getting the second biggest memory for the pro/max? Thanks !

    93. Celeste Aguilar

      I wonder if the iphone 14 is gonna include a phone😂 or are we gonna have to but it separately

    94. Pietro M P

      this is one of the worst videos I have ever seen in the tech community

    95. Pietro M P

      have you tried the iphone's mini battery? or did you just assume that it will be bad ?

    96. Tom Palma

      I'm guessing it is worth it if you're upgrading from the 8 to 12 pro?

    97. Pietro M P

      full of information easily found on apple's website

    98. Christian Collins

      Are you related to Max Yuryev??

    99. DFlix

      0:52 if this doesn’t happen to my hair when I download something in 5g, I’ll be upset

    100. None Ya

      Ok can somebody please answer this question... will it have a regular charging port built in the phone like all the other models or is it strictly just the magnetic one that works?
