Protecting user experience by slowing down the CPU. LOL! It's crap like this for why I can't justify buying an iPhone. The truth here folks is that Apple wants to make the decision to upgrade easier for it's consumers by showing them their old hardware is obsolete, when it's really not obsolete. Beware of the company that only gives fucks about profits...
This ranking system perfectly makes all the sense. Its better to rank all products in one category rather than reviewing every single product. Hi5 to that. Also rank the phones in a similar manner. Peace.
I’be been reading tech reviews for over 15 years now (showing my age!) and over the past 5 years have moved to YouTube as my primary source for reviews. As self confessed tech-head I’m loving your reviews Marques. I like the down to earth and understated style. There are a lot of reviewers who are great but “my bias” is I like when reviewers keep things on an even keel and not exaggerate a particular thing they dislike or like. Keep up the great work dude! It’s awesome to see these opportunities pop up for people like you.
One request: have you thought about doing TV or sound equipment reviews? Not the hardcore pro stuff but the more commercially available stuff.
Hey Man Love your videos
and You are the only Person whose reviews I find, to be honest, so can you make a video on this slowing down problem and the new updates that come for the iPhones.Should I keep updating the ios of my iPhone 7 plus ????
Please share and help us to find someone in apple at administrative level , indians must read
We are using this method cause apple care doesn't have any customer care in india that handles these kind of things .Local service centre doesn't have authority to replace product and the end customer care person we can contact is senior service advisor who will only explain the policy again and again.
Beware of apple macbook products (indians mainly plz read their warranty thoroughly or read our experience)
We are describing our experience with apple care here. Those who blindly support apple products know this, mac products doesn't have replacement under warranty (until the product cant be repaired in any manner that means every part has to die at same time, I am saying this because the only part thats not replaced in my Mac is base panel that has nothing on it only serial number every other bit has been changed ) be it has been repaired 3 or 4 times under 7 months, in my case its been given for repairing 5 times within 8 month. The display itself has been repaired 3 times ( even the spares doesn't have the build quality). And let me remind you we are speaking of a product that cost 2.3 lac (3560 dollar). There may be brands that has same policy as not replacing the product and repairing it for 2 or 3 times but only using repair as an option for 5th time too, apple would be the only brand that do so. The product was bought on april 28 from 1st month onwards its showing complaints with display then it was speaker, then keyboards then again display and now again with the display. Seriously do apple have any quality with their products. Just search google with macbook hardware issues and you will find a mammoth of them. Even after this most of the people are stuck with apple because of the apple software final cut pro that we video editors use. So anyone who is looking for macbook just for brand name dont do it you will regret and thats for sure ask your friends those have macbook. The funny part is most macbook users doesnt know their product has a complaint like there is a popping or rattle sound apple care would say its normal but it isn't, mine got rectified after changing display panel ( then it started showing two tone contrast on display 5th complaint).Now the sound has again returned as they changed the display again on 5th complaint. Another is if you change volume from right to left, one speaker might be having low sound that can't be easily recognizable when played on both speakers. Just look onto macbook issues in youtube. In total the product has been non usable for around 3 months actually right now we don't use it cause every time the data has to be backed up before repairing so I stopped using the product. As per apple the rattling sound is normal and the apple reply is attached(on a 2.3 lac machine guys grow up). .Even the Executive Relations EMEIA Mr. Rohith Sharma is saying rattling sound is normal in mac (even though there is no moving part inside macbook). The sound persist even after there so told procedure of checking normal rattling sound mentioned in attached apple circular that means its a complaint otherwise the pinching procedure wasn't needed to specify on circular. If you want to waste your money even after hearing this much carry own its your money and for video editors you guys are stuck with apple as i am as long as a better video editing software emerges.
This is why I don't like iPhone simply because its rigged they come out with new phones just to slow down the old ones so you have to buy a new one and iPhones only cost about 150 dollars to make each yet they sell it for 1,000 dollars the only reason people buy them is not because there good it's because the brand if u have an apple no one gonna question you or make fun of you but if you have a Android stupid apple users make fun of you and call you broke and shit it so dumb and also they barley change an iPhone 6,7,8 and X all are the same fucking phone the only thing different is the camera slightly gets better Everytime and that shouldn't be worth another 500 fucking dollars for a slightly better camera iPhone is not horrible they got good phones it just that there to expensive and they don't change I could get an Android that can do literally everything an iPhone can for less than half the price it just really pathetic to me that so many people fall for iPhones bullshit
Lol!. I love the fact you said "because I'm biased. See how that works well". Well said! I love Pixel 2 XL too even though there are short comings compare to Samsung Note 8. I think it's because I rarely use or notice those features that are lacking. Just my honest opinion. ^_^
I have iPhone 6, last year(~ jan 2016) I have replaced the battery at Apple store and paid ( I think about US$70) and now a year later my single core score is 800 and multi core score is 1341 —> it should be 1463 for single core and 2459 for multi core using Geekbench 4.2.0 😱
I have paid for the device and the battery with my own money, so why should Apple control the performance of my device that I own, are they mad thinking that I will buy a new battery every 6 months! 🤬
Apple needs to put bigger batteries in their phones. iPhone 6 is underpowered if it can't even stay turned on without throttling. Slim phones are cool but I would rather buy a phone that's little thicker but has a much bigger battery. People keep calling it an "old" phone, but it's like what, 3 years old? My 8 year old iPhone 3GS still works fine.(a bit slow but that's not because of throttling. It's just old.) How come these newer phones are dying much faster? The only problem I see is the small battery.
May want to do some research on Tesla, I understand your bias because you own one but it doesn't mean you also have to be blind.
They've fund raised 8 times since 2012 to avoid bankruptcy, they're continually failing to meet their targets and I'll be truly amazed if their car manufacturing operation doesn't go out of business entirely.
While fully electric cars may at some point become a reality, they're merely a failed concept at the moment.
LoL I knew this 4 years ago...and the funny things is Apple is forcing me to update every other day. Even I refused to update my phone. Like deleting software update on “Settings>general>iPhone storage”.
I'm sorry but I'm not really surprised by this? If you own an old phone, and you install a new operating system, what do you think is going to happen? Of course it's going to run slow because your old phone doesn't have the processing power to handle it. Seriously these people that are complaining that 'Apple are intentionally doing this', and 'this is illegal in every sense of the word' and 'Apple must be sued' , WAKE UP!!!! And I'm sorry if that includes you as well MKBHD but it had to be said. Nothing lasts forever. Power to you if you've held onto your old phone for this long, but if that's the upgrade path you have to take with buying a new iPhone so that it can handle the new operating system, so be it. Although personally, I prefer Android over iOS. Samsung beats Apple in every sense of the word.
