re: Favorite Smartphone in 2019 VIEW POST


In terms of features, I feel like "portrait mode" and "wide lens" (or whatever it's called) are camera features that people really like. If you want interesting camera features, portrait mode is a real difference maker for me feeling like I can do a lot of fun things with my camera 😄

I feel like the iPhone is a beast of a machine these days and am happy with my iOS choice, but I wouldn't argue against Android. I think there are pros and cons to every feature (and price point). The one difference maker for me is that I do genuinely appreciate that Apple has positioned themselves so explicitly pro-privacy.


I really like the privacy/security commitment of Apple too. I'm also super curious to see how they plan on achieving their commitment to sustainability. Supposedly, it may involve making it easier to repair/upgrade phones in the future so you don't have to keep buying new ones.

On the other hand, I kinda don't like that Apple is one of the major driving forces for the rising costs of smartphones (some of the iPhones cost more than my current laptop). I also dislike that you kind of get stuck with Apple if you want to keep all of your apps and stuff.

Also, can you split screen/multi task on iPhones yet? Split screen is super useful for things like watching Twitch streams where changing windows means you lose chat and have to reload the video.
