    THIS! I have two macbooks (air and pro) 9 phyical servers running hyper-v, and an ipad2. My phone is strictly for texting and phone calls and music. I can't justify paying 1K+ for a freaking phone

    Ten R user here. Waiting for 2020 when the supposed revisions are going to be made. Hopefully they get rid of the notch and add the under-glass fingerprint scanner.

    Notchless screen on my 10+ is seriously legit.

    The in screen scanner... I'm still not 100% sold on it. With an actual pad, you know exactly where to place your finger. The in screen is blind until you either misplace your thumb first or give the screen a tap.

    I do think Samsung executed the 3 camera back a lot better than this new 11.

    Did you add multiple prints of the same finger to make it easier to use? My friend did that and said it makes a world of difference.

    I did not, but that's a idea worth trying!

    I put in my primary "finger of use" a second time and it's working waaaaay better than before.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Picked one up yesterday, went for the Pro Max, in green.

    The battery life is serious. I streamed 2 movies and 4 episodes of Big Bang Theory on my flight yesterday and it dropped a whopping 15%.

    I've got around an hour of on screen time this morning with it playing games and it's dropped 2% in the last 5 hours.

    Good to hear the batteries are actually lasting on a charge now. I was pretty disappointed with the battery life on the X. I'm still going to wait until next year's supposedly "redesign" but glad to hear battery life is finally getting to where Android's have been for awhile.

    That's actually pretty legit. What's the mAh rating on those? The 4000 on my S10+ wouldn't do that I believe.

    According to that document, iPhone 11 has a 3,110 mAh battery, against the 2,942 mAh battery on last year’s base model iPhone XR. iPhone 11 Pro (5.8-inch) uses a 3,046 mAh battery, while the regular iPhone XS had only 2,658 mAh. Finally, iPhone 11 Pro Max now features a bigger 3,969 mAh internal battery, up from 3,174 mAh on iPhone XS Max — that’s around 20% larger capacity.

    I believe the chip and software are also less energy hungry as well.

    Yeah this is why they can get away with such low mAh batteries.

    I didn't use my phone a lot yesterday, but I did stream the F1 race and with it off the charger from 7:30am to about 10pm and I think the battery life was 68% with about 5.5 hours of screen-on time.

    It wouldn't surprise me if I could get a solid 11 hours of on screen time with a full charge but I hate running my phones down to even the 40% range, so I doubt I'll ever know.
