In the market for a new iPhone? Here is some advice – The Indian Express

Published

The iPhone is not only the most popular smartphone on the market but also the most desirable product regardless of its high price. Because Apple sells its iPhone in multiple models, it sometimes gets confusing which one to buy best for your needs. Whether you’re going to settle for something as basic as the iPhone SE or the top-end iPhone 13 Pro Max, we’re here to help you do your homework and figure out what to look for throughout the buying process.
It’s the most basic iPhone you can probably think of right now. It might not have the modern look or insane cameras, but cost half the price of the iPhone 13. This phone has the same A13 processor as the iPhone 11 and runs pretty much every app and game. The SE has a 4.7-inch screen, thick bezels, a home button, and Touch ID for secure unlocking. It’s the only model currently that does not have an OLED screen. Sure, it doesn’t support 5G, its battery life isn’t as good as the iPhone 13 and it also lacks a dedicated night mode. That being said, you aren’t buying an iPhone SE for the latest and greatest features. If you are in the market for a new iPhone that’s not only affordable but also pocket-sized, the iPhone SE is a great choice. Read our review of the iPhone SE (2020).
The iPhone 13 is a complete smartphone, aimed at a broad customer base. It still has a 6.1-inch OLED screen but gets features such as sensor-shift stabilization on the main camera and128GB of storage on the base version. The iPhone 13 feels almost perfect with all-day battery life and a super-fast A15 Bionic processor. It’s IP68 water-resistant, has 5G, and supports the MagSafe accessory system. Like its predecessor, the iPhone 13 has the wide and ultra-wide cameras but the picture quality has improved. Not to forget, the iPhone 13 now has this Cinematic mode, which adds Portrait mode with video and adds a blur effect around your subject. It might not be as sophisticated as an iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max, but it’s one phone that gets a pretty good job at everything. Read our review of the iPhone 13.
Some people assume because the iPhone 13 mini costs less than the iPhone 13, it is less superior. In fact, there is no performance difference between the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 at all. The iPhone 13 Mini is identical to the iPhone 13 except for battery life and screen size. Buy the iPhone 13 mini if you don’t like to carry smartphones with jumbo-sized screens. For those people, the iPhone 13 mini makes a lot of sense. It has a 5.4-inch OLED screen, has the same modern design with slim bezels like the iPhone 13, dual cameras on the back, and the A15 Bionic chip inside but in a compact size. Read our review of the iPhone 13 mini.
The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro aren’t designed to appeal to the masses and that shows the way they have been priced. They target a specific gentry who wants the best display, the best cameras, and the best battery life in a phone. Just look at the iPhone 13 Pro Max, for instance. It’s made of a mix of stainless steel and glass, has a 6.7-inch ProMotion OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate screen, longer battery life, and an extra graphic core that pushes gaming to another level. The triple-cameras include a 3X optical zoom and a new macro camera mode is a lot of fun. Apple has also added the ability to capture ProRes video, a high-quality compression format that’s widely used by Final Cut Pro users. The iPhone 13 Pro Max is worth playing extra cash, if you know the potential of this phone and how to take advantage of this device as a professional tool. The iPhone 13 Pro, on the other, is the same phone as the iPhone 13 Pro Max, with slightly less battery life and a smaller 6.1-inch screen. You still get the high-refresh-rate display, and the cameras are exactly the same. Get the model, if you don’t want an iPhone 13 Pro Max because that thing is enormous. Read our review of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
If you don’t want the latest-generation iPhones and plan to save some cash, then get the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini. Buying an iPhone 12 makes a lot of sense in 2021, because this device is very much identical to the iPhone 12. So you are not missing the most important features. Sure, you lose out on features such as Cinematic Mode but they change the photography/videography experience. But yes, the iPhone 12 starts at 64GB of storage, whereas the iPhone 13 at 128GB. Who doesn’t want extra storage, right? That being said, the iPhone 12 is still fast and zippy, thanks to the A14 Bionic chipset. Its battery life is also good, lasting a full day on a single charge. If you get an iPhone 12 for less online, grab it because it will get guaranteed software updates for at least five years.
As far as the iPhone 12 mini, this device isn’t too different from the iPhone 12, except for a smaller screen and a smaller price. However, the iPhone 12 mini’s battery life was really problematic and which is why we would recommend getting the latest iPhone 13 mini instead. The latter phone gets a slightly longer battery, plus the phone is a heck of a deal who wants a small and compact device. Read our review of the iPhone 12.
Despite being launched two years ago, the iPhone 11 is a solid buy in 2021. It has a speedy processor, two rear cameras, an OLED screen, all-day battery life, water resistance, and wireless charging. If you want a modern-looking iPhone, but don’t want the bells and whistles of newer iPhones, the iPhone 11 is worth getting it. It’s a great iPhone on a budget, costing less than Rs 50,000. Read our review of the iPhone 11.
With so many iPhone models available for sale, choosing one can be quite overwhelming. Obviously, price is something that helps narrow down your choices further, but you also need to focus on key features such as cameras and battery life.
There is no best time to buy a new smartphone. But in the case of the iPhone, there is one. Apple announces new iPhones in the month of September. With the launch of the iPhone 13 series, for example, iPhone 12 prices were reduced further. Diwali is the best time to buy an iPhone — new, old generation or refurbished.
Size is an important factor when considering buying a new iPhone. The iPhone 13 Max has a 6.7-inch screen, but it feels heavy to hold. The iPhone 13 mini, meanwhile, has a 5.4-inch screen size and is comfortable to hold but sacrifices on-screen real estate. The iPhone 13 lands right in between the two in terms of size and weight.
Every new iPhone Apple is releasing has an OLED screen, the display technology which produces deeper blacks, richer colors and more life-like images. The iPhone 13 features an OLED screen and so does the iPhone 12. But the new iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max not only have OLED screens but include the ProMotion display technology, bringing a 120Hz high refresh rate to the iPhones for the first time. The downside is that you’ll have to pay a lot more for a Pro and Pro Max model.
The camera plays an important factor in buying an iPhone. If the camera is most important to you, then go for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Both have triple rear cameras, delivering photos that are professional-looking. But if the camera is not your priority, Apple also sells the iPhone SE which has a single camera on the back. It’s a decent camera, if you are an average user.

Google Pixel Fold Tipped To Launch Alongside The Pixel 6 – Android Headlines

Android News / Google Pixel Fold Tipped To Launch Alongside The Pixel 6
Google’s very first foldable, possibly called the Pixel Fold, is tipped to launch alongside the Pixel 6 series. All of that is expected to happen in October, if the latest information is to be believed.
This information comes from Ross Young, a well-known display analyst. He is usually spot on with the info he shares, so it’s quite possible he’s right on the money this time around as well.
He confirmed this while replying to one of his followers. First, he was asked if the Pixel Fold is still in Google’s plans this year, and Mr. Young said ‘Yes’. Then the same user said “October should be a busy event then”, and Mr. Young said ‘Yep’, essentially confirming what we mentioned in the first paragraph.
We were unsure whether Google’s first foldable will arrive alongside its upcoming flagships, or later on during a separate event. Well, it seems like Google is planning to reveal all of its cards at the same time.
That means that Google will announce at least four devices during that event. The company is expected to introduce the Google Pixel 6, 6 Pro, Fold, and its first smartwatch, presumably called the Pixel Watch.
We don’t know much about the company’s first foldable, though. Yesterday, a report came in claiming that it will feature a layer of ultra-thin glass on top of its display. That is easily possible, and those are great news.
Other than that, we don’t know much. The phone is codenamed ‘passport’, which suggests a book-like foldable, in other words, something similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold lineup. That means that the device will likely feature two displays.
Android 12 will come pre-installed on that phone, that much we do know. The same goes for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, of course. The design of this foldable still didn’t leak, and we don’t know much about its specs. It will, presumably, feature the same SoC as the Pixel 6 series, Google’s very first processor.
