Hope you are all succeeding as well as secure!
First of all allow me state that I have actually been a avid visitor of this online forum for many years currently, yet never ever actually felt the demand to undergo the headache of developing an account as well as taking part primarily due to the fact that I actually had absolutely nothing to include in the conversations. Previously I presume.
I have actually been making use of the apple iphone since the apple iphone 4 was launched. I might have had a couple of communications with Android in-between, primarily when I shed my apple iphone and/or when it went with repair work or things like that, as well as constantly with quite low-cost phones so it is an extremely soft example of the system. My moms and dads both make use of Android phones so I recognize my means around generally (can do the essentials a minimum of).
I went from the apple iphone 4 to four – FIVE – 7 – XR – 11 – 12 – 13 Pro Max – 14 Pro – 13 base which is what I am presently making use of for the previous months.
I wager you are questioning what took place on the tail end of this chain of apples iphone, as well as I will certainly inform you: I shed my apple iphone 12 at the time which I very much liked as well as chose to go done in as well as obtained the 13 Pro Max. I just had it for 3 months till I at some point marketed it. I had 2 significant grievances regarding it: The dimension as well as the electronic camera. The electronic camera had some unusual concentrating issues, where it would certainly constantly concentrate around the topic. This was not typical in any way yet truthfully might be simply my system. The dimension: I do not have anything versus large phones, in any way. What actually troubled me was the absence of use of that cinema. Simply appeared like they really did not care in any way. It was an apple iphone on steroids yet with inadequate feeling of possibility.
So afterwards the 14 schedule was simply launched as well as I chose to return to the normal sized apple iphone as well as obtained the 14 Pro. Dimension was remarkable. I really felt that the phone was simply total inadequately stabilized with those substantial electronic cameras on the back. Previously Apple has actually done hardly absolutely nothing to make the vibrant island valuable, I believe you can all concur. I actually assumed we would rapidly see a great deal of various combinations as well as usages yet it was primarily a songs controller as well as a timer & calls large rectangular shape on the display.
However also placing this apart… this little monster of a phone expense me absolutely nothing even more absolutely nothing much less than a whooping 1350 euros (Yes, I remain in Europe – it is undoubtedly stunning). And also just after a couple of days I really felt a substantial quantity of acquiring sorrow as well as after week as well as a fifty percent I returned it back to Apple.
The 14 Pro was excellent, yet generally I simply seemed like the rate walking from my apple iphone 12 might not be warranted in any type of apparent means. Yes the electronic camera was much better, the 120hz really felt smooth as well as fast, yet besides that… what a lot more? So I got a hardly utilized 13 base version which I have actually been making use of for the previous number of months.
To not a surprise it really feels the like my 12. Battery is a little bit much better. The 60hz took some obtaining utilized to once again, yet it is workable. I would certainly say the electronic camera is… nearly the exact same? Since I consider it… this apple iphone 13, comparable to my 12… really feels about comparable to my 11. Perhaps to my XR besides the display being a great deal much better.
Besides of this I simply began really feeling a little bit dumb. Yeah, they function alright (despite the fact that iphone 16 has been a little an untidy upgrade) yet exactly how stagnant has the apple iphone end up being total? It is 2023 as well as we are yet to see things individuals have been requesting for ages: multitasking? No. Free plan of the application symbols on the residence display? No. USB-C? No. Faster billing? No. Gosh we obtained that “ingenious” lock display personalization as well as currently to transform my residence display wallpaper I nearly need to address globe appetite.
Obviously it obtained me thinking of Android generally, as well as exactly how I have actually just recently been seeing exactly how innovative as well as secure it has actually come to be in the previous number of years. I took very close attention to the Pixel 7 Pro launch as well as while it did require me a little I simply seem like Google phones are cut in particular manner ins which do not actually equate to front runner high quality. Being the products, the pests, the reality my nation is not component of their shop so I cannot buy from them, and so on. I believe we do not also obtain 5G on it…
Ultimately last month the S23 schedule was launched as well as this time around around I was extremely extremely interested regarding it, especially the S23 Ultra.
Style sensible I do believe it is a lovely phone, lot various from the apple iphone yet not laid-up. I had actually currently actually appreciated the style of the S21 Ultra as well as the S22 Ultra, yet remaining in Europe with the entire Exynos roguishness I would certainly never ever before also take into consideration to acquire a phone that is a capped variation of the one marketed in various other nations. What is this? Leftovers?
However this time around around Samsung brought the large weapons as well as the testimonials are undoubtedly consentaneous: It is one (otherwise the most effective) of the most effective phones offered today. The competitors being the apple iphone 14 Pro/Pro Max.
So placing them both side-by-side… why does the 14 Pro seems like a old apple iphone with a little steroids?
I have actually been thinking about making the button to the S23 Ultra, has you might or might not currently have actually identified. Aside from a couple of points that really fret me, I do not experience the exact same problems that our fellow United States pals do:
– No one, as well as I imply no one pre-owned iMessage right here. Hell, my sibling has it switched off. My sweetheart sent me a Animojy 1 year go which was it. We are all deeply knotted with Whatsapp. And also if someday this nation begins to move systems it would most likely be to something like Telegram (constantly something cross system as well as global). So iMessage for me a a non-subject.
– In my instance, words environment does not exist, in any way:
I do not have a desktop computer (Mac/Windows) due to the fact that I function all the time + additional hrs before a computer as well as when I obtain home the last point I desire is to check out one more. I have not possessed a desktop computer I believe in the last 5/6 years.
I additionally do not have any type of iPads/tablet, I a lot instead being in the sofa before a relatively contemporary 55 inch OLED television as well as see an excellent film or some episodes of the Last people
I have actually never ever been a follower of watches, generally. So when Apple launched the Apple See it really did not also cross my mind to obtain one as well as till today I continue to be made a decision. I like my wrists complimentary as a bird. I see a great deal of individuals knotted with apple iphone primarily as a result of the Apple Watch so this is (like the iMessage offer) a non-subject for me too.
Do Not have Airpods, Airtags, Apple television’s, absolutely nothing… the apple iphone is my only Apple gadget. And also in fact my only gadget – duration.
Currently… what I do make use of: Airdrop. My sweetheart takes pictures of our pets as well as she Airdrops them to me, as well as the other way around. My sibling the exact same point. Sending out pictures with Whatsapp draws due to the fact that also if you have better allowed on setups they constantly press it to a factor where it draws. I would actually require an excellent choice to Airdrop.
Notes… We make use of a great deal of common notes. I truthfully do not enjoy the apple iphone keeps in mind application, yet my gf simulates it. I presume I might encourage her to make use of a 3rd party, yet it would certainly need to be cross system, complimentary, as well as instead excellent.
Discover My… I have actually currently repaired this with Life360 like a year earlier. Has a great deal a lot more capability as well as circles are excellent as well.
Facetime… this I make use of. Out an everyday basis yet sometimes. While I have actually attempted Whatsapp video clip calling – it is tolerable negative yet it is not especially excellent either.
And also I presume these are my connections that I require to unknot in order to to the action. Whatever else I make use of is cross-platform as well as I have actually never ever been much likely to make use of Apple things like iCloud… I have actually utilized Google Photos for many years spending for the costs storage space. Gmail as opposed to the iphone Mail application; I do make use of Safari yet changing internet browsers is ok for me…
I do require to settle the problem with all my passwords being saved in iCloud Keychain. Exists a substitute for Android?
I have been rather satisfied with the electronic camera responses for the S23 Ultra, I do have 2 significant concerns:
– Video clip high quality… exactly how much is it from the apple iphone in video clip?
– Shutter lag… is it still a point? I do take day-to-day pictures of my pets as well as they have 5000mAh batteries!
I do not actually make use of socials media to videotape pictures or video clips, I might at some point share some things on Instagram or tiktok yet I do not see the factor in videotaping inside the applications. And also I have actually been regularly decreasing socials media on my life.
Finally, the suggestion behind this lengthy blog post is for you individuals to “encourage” me to do the dive. I require a person responsible if it goes southern
Can you please offer me your responses as well as your customer experience if you changed from the apple iphone to the S23 Ultra? What do you miss out on as well as do not miss out on? What are the positives that you have been really feeling? What are the downsides?
Likewise, I ought to keep in mind that my company has a collaboration with Samsung so I have 15% price cut on every little thing, based on my examination I can order a unlocked S23 Ultra 512GB of storage space for 1100 euros.
For contrast, if I intended to order a 512GB apple iphone 14 Pro it would certainly tear my budget in 1740 euros, or for the 14 Pro Max a ridiculous 1900 euros lmao. Virtually 2k for a phone.
