  • 1:01 Lol what's with the random Thanos reference. But fr tho if the next Samsung flagship focused more on the existing hardware & made big improvements on the software side, they are gonna win the mobile world.

  • Is android still a hot steaming mess regarding privacy and security? I'm pretty sick of Apple's BS, but it still seems to me to have the closest thing to actual privacy and user-control over apps stealing data. I wish there were a pure Unix pocket computer that we could enable ONLY features we want, and lock down tight, but only 5 people would buy it. sigh

  • *CAN'T EVEN OPEN THE COVER - PLEASE, PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!* And BTW when the jury came in on the battery vs. the iPhone Pro Max XS that was the deciding factor - not into phone calls, games, social media, etc. but I am a heavy data & mem user. Blind as a bat so I listen to music allot. High end PA's & speakers all over the house!! ~>PLEASE DON'T FORGET ME!!!!

  • I have the Note 10+, and I'm happy with it. Though I will never get an apple product ever again; The Ipad Pro last gen bent on me, from internal heat, and read that new out the box don't be surprised if the Ipad Pro is bent. Also I hate the security on Apple products, locked out for life if you forget your own PW. Everything else works fine on Apple though

  • Should have named the video "things that the S20 could have improved on." When you say don't buy it it makes it look like a shitty phone. We all know that the iPhone 11 is kinda trash.😂😂😂
