More choices, cheaper and good quality products is always good for consumers. I bought the Edge 30 Pro for USD550 in Southeast Asia and it is worth all the pennies i spent. Thank you, Moto.

A lot of my friends and family have Iphones. A couple of them switched from Android to Iphone. One had a Samsung S1 originally, then switched to an Iphone and loved it. I mean it was an S1 so I get her experience could be understandable. Another one had a Samsung note 5 or 6 and switched. She loved her shiny new Iphone, Of course everyone she new besides me had an iPhone. After years of bashing iPhone and unsuccessfully trying to get people to switch to Android, I decided to be open minded and bought an iPhone xr. I had a galaxy s8+ that I then sold to make me use the xr. I bought Apple watches, an Ipad, Apple tags and AIr pods pro. I had used apple products for 2 years. The iPhone had just as many problems as any smartphone. Yeah, it got a lot of updates, so it could fix the update before it. I used to root phones and I do the equivalent to other devices. I'm just saying, I'm not entirely stupid when it comes to electronics. My experience did not align though, with the "It just works" Apple motto. Anyway, I hated not having an Always on Display, not being able to download apps out of the app store, widgets, and a decent app library menu, to name a few things I missed. They did come out with widgets eventually, and I liked smart widgets, I have action launcher now which does smart widgets great on my current phone. I know these are android fanboy key points. It doesn't mean it isn't valid. The iPad wouldn't force rotate, so it was rendered useless with the keyboard case I had. It seemed like half the apps were in portrait mode. And yes I had rotation lock off. My galaxy tablet can do force rotate. Yeah, some apps have black bars on the sides because they were designed for portrait mode, but hey it works. It also seemed like you had to pay for every damn app and I didn't notice the free android apps that did the same thing being that bad. I was going to buy a MacBook and I found out there's no PS Now app, luckily, before I purchased a MacBook. That was the end of the line for me. After two years I bought a Z Flip 3 and never looked back. Notes: I do think my Apple watch 6 had better battery. It charges twice as fast too. I do regret not getting the S21 instead of the Z flip 3. Yeah, folding it is cute, not 1000 cute though. Hopefully Ill get the S23 ultra. I want a better battery life, a better camera and more ram. I still use the Airpods pro with my galaxy until, hopefully, galaxy buds live 2 come out (and if they are a marked improvement over the originals). A year before I switched back to android I did buy an Iphone 12 and will keep it as reference device for when other people need help with their Iphones (and they do). That's my experience with the Apple ecosystem. Experiences vary, to each their own.

The iPhone is 15 years old. The first smartphone is over 25 years old. Everything Apple made is evolutions of an existing technology. EVERYTHING. Apple didn't make the 1st desktop computer. XEROX did. Apple didn't make the 1st smartphone. IBM did. Apple didn't make th 1st music player. They didn't make the 1st laptop, smartwatch. They weren't the 1st to make fast high bandwidth connections. They didn't make the 1st CPU or SoC. Even the iPad was not invented by Apple.The iPad was shopped around to several oems like Real. They all laughed and Apple didn't. The rest is history. If you look at the history of the mobile phone, the screen got bigger as time went buy. When the iPhone came out in 2008, many phone already had displays half the size. They simply had real keyboard. Real keyboards are better than virtual ones for tactile feedback. It's just as Jobs said, you can't make it disappear when you don't need it. Apple is like a chef. They don't invent the food, they don't grow the food. They take all the foods, combine then into a well present dish. But all their tech is made by someone else. All of it.

Both my wife and I use a mi band 6, she can't live without her's, only taking it off to charge it. I too see no reason to spend so much more on something that we only need for a few things that the mi band does very well.

Received the update on one of my lines with the N200. Nice update. So far nothing to report. The update brought some nice GUI changes to Oxygen OS and Android 12 runs great on it. Glad it got such a nice update!

Rado, I sympathize with you. I also use an iPad Mini 6 as a smartphone, complete with phone calls. My iPhone is set to forward calls and text messages that it receives to my iPad, so I can and do leave my iPhone at home. I’ve been using iOS off and on since the OG iPhone and iPad, and have grown to prefer iPads to iPhones, due to iPads offering functionality that I prefer, such as Pencil Support, and better multitasking. I also prefer the larger screen real estate, but I can still fit the Mini 6 in my pants pocket (for the most part). If Apple made the iPads have cameras that produce photos and videos much closer to what their top of the line iPhones produce, I would not need to carry a smartphone around as well for that purpose (I switch between Huawei, Samsung, and OnePlus smartphones on any given day). As it is though, I am thoroughly enjoying using the iPad Mini 6 as like a smartphone. So much so, that it has become my primary device/every day carry. Nice to see that there is at least one other person that uses the iPad Mini 6 similarly to the way I use it.
