  • How to choose which iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro to buy

    I was disappointed that Apple chose to continue with glass backs on these new models. 
    What an intelligent comment. Be sure to tell Apple engineering how they could be doing so much better. 
    HOW is my comment which is based on my experience with a cracked back iPhone XS not and intelligent comment?  Some of you guys are unbelievable in your defense of Apple the way religious zealots go after doubters. Why don't you give me the phone # of one of the engineers since you are apparently in with Apple somehow. 
    Yeah, 7000 aluminum is tough, but people call it "ugly, boring", and "the design is doomed."  You got what you wanted.

    Apple really should disclose this info in their tech specs section. Not sure why they do not. Should be no secret. Processor,ram and storage space should all be disclosed when people click on tech specs. This should not be a hidden secret that people have to search for. Imagine having to search for this info when buying a Mcbook Pro :o
    Maybe because the amount of RAM in a phone does not really matter to anyone but spec junkies that like to claim that a phone with 8GB of RAM is better than a phone with 4 or 6GB of RAM, which is patently false.  The amount of RAM in a MacBook Pro IS needed depending on what you are going to use it for.
    I think it’s because Apple used to skimp out on RAM and didn’t want to call attention to it. I remember having the first iPad Air. The memory management was awful. Safari tabs would constantly re-load. People who own an iPhone 6 (still with 1GB RAM) has similar issues with apps refreshing all the time.
    That's not "horrible memory management" but rather the hardware limit.  Android, on the other hand, does have a "horrible management" to begin with.

    So, actual Geekbench testing said 4GB. Unnamed, unverified sources of unknown reliability say 6Gb. Uh, yeah I'd go with the actual measurement until I get more data. I suppose it is possible that the base version has 4 and ones with more RAM, or the Max version has 6. But the only way to know for sure is an actual measurement, not rumours.
    Except that Geekbench isn't a "measurement" of RAM size.
    They do report the size of it.

    Android does need a lot more RAM than iOS does, so they make a big deal about how much RAM Android phones have. If you have 50 apps showing on an iPhone “open apps” listing, they aren’t really open, and they don’t take any RAM or processing power. But in Android, they do. So they need more RAM. Even a half dozen open apps can suck RAM dry and kill a large percentage of CPU cycles.
    I remember one time I saw some programmer trashed Android for how horrible the code is, basically he said it didn't even consider to optimize RAM usage.  Not a programmer myself, but feels like true especially back then.  12GiB is crazy when 8GiB is still fluent for many lower-end PCs.

    It’s this, of course. They don’t believe it’s a meaningful spec to the end user, unlike storage space to put things. Storage is simple, more is more. Not so with RAM when comparing to crummier knockoffs. 
    Keep in mind that Android is horrible at memory management.
