    I like iPhones . I like it’s features very much. There’s no replacement of this brand. The number one priority is a good from camera for selfies. It has extremely accurate screen colours. It has high core storage. I don’t give opinions about android phones. I have bad experiences with them. They have short battery usage with reserved features. Some have not fingerprint scanners and Bluetooth headset. The most important thing for me to recommend others iPhone is, it has good battery life. This is one of them features which I always seek for . It is multi task.

  12. lou Joyce on December 1, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    For my phone firstly it’s good-looking for its appearance, it looks smart and easy to handle with only one hand, but the internal storage is running out as i used it for over 3years ~ also the camera is not so decent especially for night shooting or poorly lit environment , i would choose a phone with a good quality camera because I’m a photography type~

    The most important thing for me is that It is fast and has wide screen. I usually take picture when I travel, so It would be a plus if It has decent back camera. I want to spend as little as possible without compromise the features that I need.

  27. Sai Baba on December 1, 2020 at 9:46 pm

  32. Rumi Basari on December 1, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Apparently A smartphone helps us tremendously. So when We buy smartphone we need to have some ideas about smartphone. If you have not, YOU should look for recommendations of seller at the time of buying. I have some requirements in a smartphone. At first it will be in the mid-range that means I am aiming for smartphone in the mid-range. Another important requirement is long battery life and should also have a good infront selfie camera with decent quality. Basically I take a lot of pictures . It would be a bonus if it have good quality screen.

    Thank you for such a good video.I would like to describe my smartphone in this brief comment.Currently I`m using Xiaomi Redmi 4X.I bought it two years ago and it worth the money. It has Snapdragon 425 and 32 internal storage and 3GB of RAM.Despite such a great hardware it has one disadvantage.The camera doesn`t make a good photo. So i decided to buy a new phone. Now I`m looking for such smartphone as Xiaomi Mi Note 3. I guess , it might be a good choice.

  39. Lena ! on December 1, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    My number one priority is health and safety, i.e low EMF-radiation. What phone and accessories do you recommend? 🐝

  40. R. N. on December 1, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    Olivier. Your mic is way far from your mouth. Poor audio

  42. Rajesh !!!! on December 1, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Hey Olivier ,I can’t help watching your videos

  43. Li Shen on December 1, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    Thank you for this useful lesson!
    I used to have an iPhone 7, but it was broken when I accidentally dropped it off the desk last year. The screen cracked completely into pieces. Because it was still in good condition otherwise, as I had used it for only ten months, so I tried to have it repaired at an Apple store. It turned out to be very expensive, costing about 200 dollars, so I thought I’d rather get a new one and I bought this iphone XR. It’s a bit expensive, but I think it’s worth the money. For me the number one priority of a cell phone is that it’s fast and has excellent performance. This one has an 8-core processor and 3 GB of RAM, so everything runs fast. I can have several apps open without it slowing down. I chose a 128 GB variant. Although I mostly stream movies, TV shows and music, it’s really handy to have a large storage especially when I am travelling so I can keep many photos and videos offline on the phone without worrying about capacity. Another thing that is very appealing to me is that it has amazing dual cameras. The front true-depth camera can take great selfies and allow for face recognition which means you can unlock your phone by just looking into the camera. The rear wide-angle camera makes it easy to take clear and crisp photos even in dark conditions. Last but not least, it supports dual-SIM, so I can have two phone numbers to be used at one time. I find this feature really useful when I am travelling abroad, as I can get a local SIM card and stay connected without breaking the bank.
