    I have iPhone 6s Plus. I think its battery is draining fast now so I'm thinking of replacing it in the near future :cry: (bought it way back around 56k cash)

    Should I get and 11 or 12? Or should I wait for the 13 pro max? I don't want to make my Asus ROG Phone 3 my main personal/work phone as it is dedicated for gaming and youtube Vanced (I don't want to bloat it).

    Thanks! :)

    Get the 12 pro max since you hold on to your phone for a long period of time (y)

    I'd just keep to one smartphone unless you have multiple girlfriends.

    Does the ROG have better performance than a top-end iPhone?

    I use adblocking at the router level so I get why you want ad-free Youtube.

    If you'll wait for iPhone 13 Pro Max... what will prevent you from waiting for iPhone 14 Pro max?

    iPhone 12 Pro Max isn't out in the PH market officially.

    Your iPhone 6s is more than 5 years old. If you game and YouTube on phones a lot then I'd change the battery every 2 years or so.

    Better yet get a postpaid so you only pay 3,599/month (1800/month for hardwware & 1,799/month for text/calls/data).

    Paying 56k outright and up front is heavy on the pocket. Cost of money reduces over time at 1,799/month.

    The value of 1,799/month payment on the 1st month is stronger than the value of 1,799/month payment on the 24th month.

    Thanks for your reply.
    1. I'm not sure if the ROG have the better performance, I can say maybe they are close but I still like iOS overall. I can't leave iOS because of Fantastical app.
    2. I don't know how to do adblocking at the router level and I don't have enough time since I'm a busy person. (Busy doing OTY)
    3. I don't know yet

    About postpaid, yes I'm highly considering it though the total value will high than the retail price. But I think can't consume all of this per month (1,799/month for text/calls/data)

    mm...perfect time to get the 12 pro max or 12 pro. It will be a year from now before the next iPhone makes its appearance. 11? No. Upgrade to the latest.

    So why did you buy the ROG? iPhone has been known to have the best absolute performance of any smartphone at the respective price points.

    Actually the 1,800/month for 24 months (43,200) does not actually cover the full value of the $1,099 (59,215 VAT inc) 64GB iPhone 12 Pro Max. The difference is taken from the 1,799/month for text/calls/data.

    It plays into the psychology of pricing. That's why "free phones" is very misleading. If it was actually free then why is there a contract for 24 months? The cost is built-in.

    So the actual service fee is ~1,132/month to pay off the iPhone's 2,467/month actual amortization

    At 3,599/month (iPhone + service) the total cost over 24 month (730 day) contract is 86,376.

    That comes out as 118.32/day for 730 days.

    Day 1's 118.32/day has a greater buying power than Day 730's 118.32/day due to inflation.

    Let us say you started paying 118.32/day on 5 December 2018 by the 730th day on 5 December 2020 the buying power of that 118.32/day would be equivalent to 131.03/day by the last day. Making the iPhone cheaper to pay over time.

    If you bought it at full price on day 1 then inflation has nothing to do with it and the cost of money is still more expensive.

    Kung pwede lang telcos would also offer Macs on a postpaid plan.
