        I've wondered about this… why is 5G so much better? 4G is still crazy fast, faster than my home NBN. I'm often getting > 100mbps down AND up.

        • +13 votes

          IMO 5G isn't necessary. I have my 5G capable Samsung phone on power saving mode and it drops to 4G and I have not noticed any loss of quality of life day to day. YouTube still steams fine in highest video quality.
          5G is faster yes, but drains the battery which in turn does reduce quality of day to day life as I have to charge it sooner.

          Best I've gotten was 270mbps on 4G download :)

        Which is fine if you're with a carrier/plan that makes 5G available but.. that might be some time off yet for a large chunk of people?

        As an example, I'm with Boost on the Telstra network (coverage) but it won't have 5G for quite some time yet.. so an iPhone12 would have no advantage from having 5G capabilities on that network. Assume similar for a number of VNOs?

        Majority of Australia don't even get 5G and would stay that way for a good 3 years so yeh nice to have but absolutely notional.

    If I wasn't about to get a 12 from Flybuys this'd be awesome.

    •  

      How many points was that?

      •  

        288,440 for an Iphone 12 with 128gb. Got about 30k to go with half that coming next week. 272,440 for a 64gb but not sure that's enough.

    It's been really slow since bought an XR when it released. Not recommended unless you are keen to have an Apple phone.

      Most of my family are on the XR. Mine is about three years old and the others are newer than mine and all run smooth and quickly.

      I have an XS Max (same CPU, 1GB more RAM) and it's still lightning quick…

      I've used an XR since release and its still super fast and has great battery life.

      I wouldn't buy one new now, but i'd expect to get a year or two more from it.

    •  

      suggests you to check Battery health and replace the battery if necessary - if battery isn't performing the chip will throttle its speed and performance will degrade.

  •  

    Refurb / used XS a better buy than this, me thinks

    •  

      What’s the target price for these?

      • +2 votes

        There’s a bunch of stores on eBay that do refurb XS for about $450, and they offer 1 year warranty and 30 day no questions asked returns. Got one a bit more scratched that I was expecting, and it was super easy to swap it out for one that looked pretty much brand new.

        •  

          I got one earlier this year. Bought one stated "excellent" condition. Pretty sure was brand new. Amazing phone for the price ($600 or so)

          What store did you get yours from?

    •  

      Likely to require a new battery and no apple and ACL warranty

      • +1 vote

        The refurb eBay stores all seem to guarantee over 80% battery capacity, offer a year warranty, and a 30 day no questions asked return period. Pretty sweet I reckon.

        • +1 vote

          Is it easier to claim warranty in eBay after 60 days? even if the seller has an active eBay account?
          I ask because all the options are greyed out (disabled) after 60 days in eBay.

          • +2 votes

            @utsc: eBay doesn’t want to know you after 60 days. I bought a quite expensive battery through eBay with 5 year warranty. Failed after 6 months and, like many eBay sellers, no way to contact allegedly Australian on line only seller except through eBay messaging, which was ignored. I reported this to eBay and they said they would review seller’s status. Because the seller had a large number of items listed, nothing was done. I know I have the right to recourse through ACCC etc., but not worth the effort. Lesson learned. Beware of eBay.

            •  

              @dennisc: Agreed

            •  

              @dennisc: Exactly that's the reason that ebay warranty from unknow sellers is garbage and many people fall for it.

              I would try talking to a Ebay Manager because the first line of calls are answered by overseas support who are provided incentives to deny claims and close the ticket quickly and have no clue about ACCC

    I really liked this phone.
    Something about the shape/size of it was perfect.

      Maybe, but it’s a big phone. Bigger and heavier than the X, the XS and the 12.

      •  

        Maybe that's what it was.
        I liked the weight of it in hand.

    Is anyone having speaker or sound issues with the new iPhone XR

    A relative purchased a new XR from Office works and the sound is distorting and very uncomfortable to hear just when making or receiving calls and the problem is worse when on the speakerphone.

    The sound is similar to playing a high volume in a low output speaker I suspect that speaker is vibrating too much.

    I suspect that if I take it to the Apple Store they will swap the brand new phone to a refurbished phone,

      If it was a recent purchase, take it bacl to officeworks and they will most likely replace it with a new one.

        Thank you, I purchased 10 days ago and within the 30 days returns period
