*The iPhone thread

  • Hi aski ko lang po naka smart postpaid ako. Inactivate ko yung imessage at facetime. One time charge lang ba yun or may charges everytime na ginagamit?


    One time lang sya pero pag deactivate and reactivate mo another charge ulit yun.
  • Thanks @mereijeyn. Ok lang din naman naka setup yung sa imessage sa number hindi sa icloud email po?

    Nalito kasi ako dalawang agent ng ng smart magkaiba yung sagot. Una sabi e one time charge para aa activation lang then yung second agent sabi may charges daw parang normal text.
  • ngayon ko lang na-realize na dual sim (esim) din pala tong smart locked ip11 ko. kaso wala pang esim ang smart. ganun din. hehe
  • Pa help naman po, anu diff local iphone xs max sa HK variant nito na dual-sim? Aside sa dual sim siya? Baka hirap siya sa signal naten? Is there any con sa pagbili ng HK variant? May nakita kasi ako mas mura na HK variant pero medyo hesitant pa ko.
  • Normal lang ba to? Wala pang 1 month 99% agad ang battery life ng phone ko? Napansin ko lang sya siguro after ko mag update sa ios 13.7.
  • Unusual sya I’m using iPhone 11 since December 2019 until now 100% pa sya, using the iOS14 developer beta ok pa din batt health nya. Me mga units talga mabilis bumaba battery health.
  • my unit is 8 months old, nakuha ko siya 2 months ago ata @ 96% battery life. Pero 96% pa din ngayon.

    Di ko alam paanong gamit ang ginawa ng previous owner. hehe

    I often charge it overnight (orig cable, orig charger na huawei o lenovo)

    But now that I'm on 13.7, ambilis niya ma battery drain, like 30% consumption in an hour of spotify playing via bluetooth, at nainit siya. Screen off ito ha.

    may nababasa akong issues sa signal quality ng second sim slot ng HK variants. As for warranty, meron daw nagtatanggap ng HK units dito sa Manila.

  • @oweneighty - depends on what you need or are looking for in a phone e. For me, it's a good phone. I get decent battery life kahit pinapang mobile data (though hindi naman heavy use), snappy/responsive, clear camera as can be expected from iPhones, small form factor, accessories hindi mahirap maghanap, you're assured of updates for years to come. But one of the reasons I bought this is actually the home button. Madali buksan ung phone with literally 1 finger, kahit hindi iangat from the table or tingnan yung phone. It's especially helpful when your eyes are focused on something else pero gusto mo na buksan yung phone.

    IP12 PRO MAX 128 for my wife na naka 6s+ Antay ko lang pre-order Nov 7, Overseas based
  • Hi! how much kaya battery replacement for iphone x? without warranty na po ito. 74% na lang kasi health eh.


    I'm based overseas. Authorized repair center with genuine parts, apple trained technicians, and using apple repair tools nasa Php 3,600 conversion.

    That’s a very reasonable upgrade. I’m currently on 256GB iPhone 11 Pro Max and contemplating on the 12 Pro Max, mainly ‘cause of the stabiliser + Apple ProRAW. Dito sa UK, 6th November and pre-order.

    I’m nervous na ma-aaddict ako sa mga genuine Apple MagSafe accessories, just like how I got addicted to Apple Watch Straps, hehe.

    Deym, 11 pro max to 12 pro max overkill hehehe. Ako I'm holding on for 2 more years pa cguro sa IPX 256GB ko, magpa replace lang ako ng battery 2nd quarter next year. If ever magupgrade ako I would choose the Mini 128 GB small form factor, ang ligther weight. Madalas mahulog sa bulsa ng jacket ko ung IPX ko.

    Kamusta Covid? Nasa Tier 2 lock down area ba kau? I'm NZ based.
  • I'm planning to get an iPhone 11 from Smart.. since si Globe may eSIM pwede ko kaya sila magamit ng sabay or locked din kaya ang eSIM with Smart?

    Super tempting kasi trade in, eh, while the offer is still relatively reasonable. Upgraded from iPhone X on a whim last year, mainly for battery and taking photos of my travels... pero now since lockdown, most likely hindi nalang ako mag upgrade. And notably, I think the lens reflections are still there on the new ones, I think. Super bwisit ako dun, pinapalitan ko phone ko for that after going to Switzerland! Feeling ko tuloy sayang upgrade. It’s so visible at night, and I took quite a few photos and videos where you can see it clearly.

    Re its size... tama, nahuhulog din sa bulsa iPhone 11 Pro Max ko. Buti gentle fall lang, as in dulas from pocket to settee, or sa car. For the past few weeks, I’ve been appreciating it more without a case, pero pag may risky activity binabalik ko sa case. That’s another reason that’s holding me back - I have 2 cases; the official Apple Smart Battery case and the Speck Presidio Stay Clear. Sa iPhone X ko I had around 5 official cases lol. Really need to learn to control myself.

    May talks na mag Tier 3 sa area ko, despite the decrease in cases. Kamusta jan?

    Hope everyone’s staying safe. All the best.

    I think may option mag pa unlock sa mga telco. After 1 year ata free na, pero if within, may bayad.
  • @pancho I love the Otterbox Defender series for myself my one and only case. Lalo na I have a 2 year old boy na nakikigamit pag nasa labas ng bahay if tamarin magset up in Ipad. I'll probably encourage the wife to get an otterbox na rin of her liking.

    Hopefully maging better na jan and same back home in PH, kawawa ung mga bata wala ng natututunan.

    We are virtually untouched by the virus we had an early 4 weeks tough lockdown nung March but after that life went back to normal. Afterall we are the Middle Earth of Nowhere. Luckly din as we are now in spring approaching summer season.

    Can't wait for 7th November. After cguro ng 1 hour of tinkering magsasawa nako hehehe.
  • Question, anong variants ng iPhone ang supported locally ng official service centers dito? Plan ko bumili directly from Apple pero from a different country, since ang laki ng tax na patong dito.
  • iOS 14.2 is out :-)

    May option jan to automatically switch to 5G only if needed, naka off ba ‘yun, and are you in an area with 5G?

    Since nag iPhone ako, I never experienced poor battery and laging supported ng iOS updates ang phones ko.

    Another thing on battery life - that depends on your usage. It should last longer now, as there’s an option to “Optimise Battery Charging”.

    When Apple became a bit more “open” and allowed third-party keyboards, and when they introduced Portrait mode on their camera, I instantly switched from Android to iOS.
  • Sa akin boss wala lumalabas hanggang lte lang sya, yup nasa Makati area ako lagi may 5G dito sa amin
  • dual.physical sim narin poba irelease sa pinas?
  • Wife’s pro max 12 arrived yesterday. Hindi nga siya suitable for my use. Too much bulk if mgdrive, too much weight sa carmount and will easily fall off sa bulsa ng jacket ko. Wait cguro ako mag mura ung mini pag dating ng next gen.
  • yung HK variant ba na iphone is almost yhe same lang sa US variant ang difference lang you can use dual sim physically tama ba?and my local store ba nagbebenta satin ng HK variant dito sa pinas?thanks
  • ^grey market sellers sir meron ako nakikitang HK variant
