    iphone 4s had the wifi gate. the wifi switch would turn "transparent" and you couldn't toggle it on thru settings, control center, siri, anywhere. the wifi would only work again if you put the phone in the freezer for sometime or blew a hot hair dryer on the back.

      Captaindog08 Builds lol you just answered your own question. If a product has high demand you can over charge consumers. If it has low demand you can’t. Think of it this way. You’re a business owner selling a product but no one is buying it. Now would you lower the price to increase the chances of bringing more consumers. Or would you raise it to make it even harder.

    Well, no hate to Apple or apple customers. But since you talked about how apple has the most loyal fanbase, I'd say that those "Loyal fans" are just stupid. People shouldn't throw away there money like this to a brand. The good thing would be if people weren't so "loyal" to Apple after so much controversies and such "Apple-like" behavior towards them from Apple.

    I am very disappointed with you man. Very bad info . Funny you didn't mention about all the iPhones that suffered battery explosions. SAMSUNG did what apple would never do , they recalled the phones, Wich by the way it was the fault of the battery manufacturer not Samsung themselves. If that was apple it would take a court order for them to recall the phones. Don't lick ass mate. BE DIFFERENT NOT THE SAME

    Of course you say you aren't sponsored by Apple!
    Watched through the whole video, I can clearly see that you are trying hard to prove it! There's no neutral approach to the 'gates' from you. The charging bug was a bigger thing, you'd have made a video for sure if you are a neutral person. And beauty gate! Seriously is that even a reason, I think most of the people you work with are affected, if it's not for your 'darker' faces dialogue. No offense to anyone, it's just I'm not able to digest the fact that MKBHD did this video! I go through every video of yours and they are transparent as hell! This for sure is not.

    Ppl only also get iPhones bc of iMessage and FaceTime, but also apps support the camera better and apps are supported better. So I guess all of that can be legit reasons. But there are a lot of iMessage and FaceTime alternatives.

    Well I won't judge anyone if they prefer iphone but the youth only have or want iPhones bc of trends and it's retarded. Sites say that Android has more customer loyalty than iPhone and more ppl have Androids but I kinda feel that's just a lie because iPhones are everywhere and everyone wants it.

    OK So the skin smoothing effect is because in the new iPhones (XS / Max), the front facing cameras have an auto HDR mode. If you look at the videos, look at the background of them (more specifically the one in front of the window), the background is blown out in one and the other has a higher dynamic range.

    No dude, the gates does not happen because they sell so much and even a small problem is big. It is a gate because they sell iphones so expensive and say always look for making the best iphone ,when some of people understand that it is not true. And when there is a problem, they simple fuck you up even more. That is why there is a gate everytime there is a problem.
