    The issue with any brand of "lens protector".

    Will reduce the amount of light being recorded by the image sensor of your iPhone

    Will reduce the optical quality of your iPhone's camera

    I've observed dozens of photographers being swayed by camera stores to buy from them because of a free "lens filter" that costs 100.00. This reduces the amount and quality of light thus negating the 100,000 lens.

    Hirin namin dati about cheap optical filters is that parang ginawa mong camera phone photo quality yung full frame mo.

    Now, smartphones like the iPhone 11 Pro Max produces image quality equal to a micro43rds camera.

    Would using an esim and physical sim (dual-sim setup) incur more battery usage? Anyone on this setup and noticed significant drain?

    Mm....dual sim consumes more battery but the battery drain is minimal. If you want, turn off the secondary line if not needed. But, the major drain comes from brightness of screen etc. I wouldn’t worry about it.

    If it's already 50% or lower, I charge if I'd have the chance... But I don't let it go lower than 20% (I avoid the bar being RED). Then I only charge up to 90-90+%... the only time it would go up to 100% is if I forget leaving my phone plugged (which is very rare).

    Mine is still at 100% battery health. Purchased my iPhone 11 Pro November 20, 2019.

    Had an iPhone XS Max which I gave to the wifey. Its about 13 months old now. still at 100% battery health.

    My secret: charge every time you have the opportunity to. I charge overnight ALL THE TIME. Whenever I am inside the car, its being charged.

    I think I know the reason/s why my Pro Max batt health went down 99% barely 1 month of use

    1. I have my location shared 24/7, on top of that I have multiple geofence alerts to notify if I enter/exit an area
    2. I have an auto detect sleep app connected to watch
    3. I always play COD (at that time, not much today)
    4. I am always on iOS Beta (quick batt drain, phone heating up)

    The reasons above are now removed for some time now and it is still at 99%

    Thanks for the info. Might consider this Ringke Camera Frame Protector.

    I think the reason why some iPhone batteries stay at 100% health is that the owners do not update their phones on iTunes. Perhaps over the air updates do not trigger a battery health re-calibration as opposed to a full iTunes update/restore.

    The problem with that thing is that it will cause vignetting.

    I also discourage people from using clear cases as it causes the flash to defuse and fools the phone into slow shuttering or underexposing.

    Colored cases causes a color cast as the flash bounces off the colored case surround the flash and instead of compensating for a known color temp.

    That's why my iPhone case is black but has a lip to lift up the phone's lens from surface when facing down.

    Hey guys, just a quick inquiry. I bought a iPhone 11 with 256gb storage in Beyond the Box. It's all good and fine but now i'm thinking of upgrading it to a Pro or Pro Max? Do you think it's worth it? I'm planning to get the iPhone 11 Pro 64gb btw

    Or just don't use flash! Flash on camera phones are good for one thing only, as a flash light. hahaha

    No! I don’t think it’s a good idea. You are significantly downgrading your storage, and the only significant difference really is an additional telephoto lens. I would rather wait for the 2020 iPhones before thinking of upgrading.

    I agree on this one. My iPhone XS Max has been at 100% for nearly 6 months with OTA iOS updates. All of a sudden after restoring it via finder (iTunes if you're on Windows), battery health drops to 99%. Then a week after, drops to 98%.

    Really? Even if the Edges are black? I use one of these Frame Protectors from Ali and I am super happy with them. I didn`t noticed anything bad but it makes me thinking.


    This is how my Frame Protector looks:

    The flash of the later iPhones are pretty good in filling shadows.

    Those lens protectors obstructs the angle of view hence the vignetting. Color is largely irrelevant.

    It is possible that the phone's software is compensating for the vignetting.

    Up to you on how you want to use phone.

    My main concern is why spend $1100 on a phone for it's camera when you'll put a P110 lens protector that diminishes image quality and transmission of light (t-stop)

    Mm...my opinion is if you already are using a case, there is no need to install a lens protector.

    But, I understand those who do because they want a pristine iPhone that they can sell and command a higher resale value.

    As for picture quality flaws because of the lens protector, it is irrelevant for most iPhone users. Most of us just want a clear picture for posting in social media or for sharing so any flaw is just completely irrelevant or completely ignorable.
