    Another home run from BackMarket! I was a little worried about the mixed reviews for this refurbisher, but I went with my gut and bought a phone from them. It’s been about a week now with no noticeable issues. I ordered good condition, so when the screen came with some shallow scratches I wasn’t surprised, but after putting on a screen protector I can’t even see them anymore. The only other issue I have is the speakers seem to be a little tinny, but I use headphones and a speaker all the time so it’s not an issue for me.

    I bought this phone to take it to my father in Europe. It looks like brand new! Hopefully works good as well. This is my first time buying refurbished item. I wasn’t sure what to expect but this experience turned out to be great. Happy with my purchase! I trust this company. Five stars!

    The phone came earlier than expected Has a little scratches here and there, but it works perfectly brand new When I turned it on, it was at 50% which is normal for when you get a iPhone so I went ahead and charged. It was charging slow at first but then you know after a while you know I guess the truck charge more faster or whatever however it works but yeah I would recommend anyone to order the iPhone X. I gave this a 10 out of 10 and I love how it comes with a Sim kit like a plan so then you don’t have to go out and get a boost mobile or cricket, even though I never got those plans before I like the US Mobile and ting

    I was pretty skeptical as this was my first purchase, and reading the reviews made it seem like I was rolling the dice on how it’d turn out, but I decided to go for it and get an IPhone X in Top Shelf excellent conditions.
    It arrived, no cracks, no visible damage, works fine so far, and even a 100% battery. There’s a few hardly visable tiny scratches on the top and back of the phone but, again, hardly visible and just the smallest critique. I don’t know if I got lucky or if this is the quality to expect with this website. If it’s the latter, I will definitely remember it next time I’m looking for an older IPhone model.

    So far haven’t had good luck with iPhone X. This one was the best so far but for some reason I still have issues. The screen was bowed up near the silence switch, the battery already said service when I got it, the camera glass was cracked, and the screen screw is stripped so work cannot be done to it! Even with the cons it’s the most “working” iPhone X I’ve received from any vendor.

Review: The iPhone on Straight Talk

In recent months, the iPhone has been released on a few U.S. prepaid carriers, allowing consumers to purchase the device without a contract on a much cheaper plan than what a post-paid carrier would offer on a contract.

Unfortunately, the device selection is limited to only the 8 GB iPhone 4 or the 16 GB iPhone 4S (available in black or white) on both Cricket and Virgin Mobile. The unlimited plans are only $55 depending on either carrier. The data runs over Sprint’s 3G network, however, which is one of the slowest 3G networks available. This really limits the iPhone’s potential and ruins the experience of using such an advanced device. I am sure many people believe the old “you get what you pay for” saying is true—an iPhone on a prepaid carrier will never be as good as an iPhone on a contract carrier.

However, those people could be wrong.

Recently, I started to look at running an iPhone on Walmart-promoted prepaid carrier Straight Talk. I was cautious at first, because I was unsure which features would stop working on my phone (I am currently on AT&T). I knew that some things like visual voicemail would stop working since that requires specific, Apple-approved carrier support, but I wanted to make sure I would not lose my data capabilities like those who use unlocked iPhones on T-Mobile. On top of that, I was uncomfortable with the idea of cutting down a full-sized SIM card to fit into my iPhone 4’s Micro SIM slot.

I looked online for answers to my questions, and I was mostly met with some tutorials on how to run an iPhone on Straight Talk. The only way I was going to get any answers was to put a Straight Talk SIM into an iPhone and find out for myself.

The first thing I did was go to Straight Talk’s website and look into its “BYOP” or “Bring Your Own Phone” program. This allows you to purchase a Straight Talk SIM card without having to also buy a cheap phone that you will not use. The standard SIM card alone is $14.99. Much to my surprise, they offer a Micro SIM for the same price—even going so far as to explicitly state on the website that it fits the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. The program supports any GSM iPhone, but it does not work with CDMA-only (iPhone 4) models like those used on Verizon or Sprint.

The service is only $45 a month, which is much cheaper than the other prepaid carriers, and the data, messaging, and calling are all unlimited. The BYOP program also allows you to port your number from your old carrier to your new Straight Talk plan. This is a very nice plus that contract carriers like Verizon and AT&T also offer.

Of course, the biggest question is not whether a SIM card will fit into my phone. The real question is whether the service is worth the money. To setup the service, you will need a GSM (AT&T) iPhone, and it does not even need to be unlocked. To be sure, we talked to Straight Talk. It provided the following statement:

To answer your question, we just re-tested to confirm. Since Straight Talk is making use of AT&T’s powerful Nationwide HSPA+ network, users currently don’t need to unlock an iPhone 4/4s in order to get Straight Talk’s SIMs to work, but they do need to change their APN settings.

This certainly adds convenience for early iPhone 4 adopters since they’ve all run through their contract. Those still on contract could switch over without getting AT&T to unlock their phone but they’d still have to fulfill their contract commitments.

It’s important to note that since AT&T works closely with Apple on software updates, and could see this functionality as problematic for one reason or another, the ability to use Straight Talk on a locked iPhone (or any locked phone) is subject to being removed at any time at the sole discretion of the network or device manufacturer. For these and other reasons, we heavily recommend that users only make use of the Straight Talk service on unlocked devices.

As for the data and MMS, there is a tiny bit of work that has to be done to set up, but it’s not very hard. In fact, all you have to do is visit one webpage on your phone, tap a few buttons, select “Straight Talk” from a list of carriers, and then install the provided carrier profile. That’s it. If you are jailbroken, you may have to do a bit more work, as detailed here, but most people should be fine with the simple steps above.

iMessage works with no problem or additional setup, and sending from both the phone number on the SIM card and with an Apple ID functions exactly as it should.

Once you have the SIM installed and the data setup, you will find that the call quality is very good and data speeds are pretty much the same as AT&T’s (at least in our tests). In fact, if you stick the Straight Talk SIM into an iPhone 4S, you will have access to the same HSPA+ “4G” network that AT&T subscribers use, complete with the “4G” indicator in the status bar. Curiously, the status bar lists the carrier as “HOME”, but that is no reason to be alarmed.

Unfortunately, you will lose your visual voicemail. Setting your data to work with Straight Talk won’t fix that, because Straight Talk’s network doesn’t support it. However, other solutions do exist, such as the free YouMail app. While I have not tried it yet, it has been recommended by many people who use it. YouMail confirmed that the free service will work with Straight Talk on jailbroken iPhones, but its setup website currently states that the service has stopped working this month and the developers are investigating the issue. Standard “call-in” carrier voicemail does still work with the iPhone.

Overall, Straight Talk is one of the best iPhone carriers available. The Straight Talk network is pulling from AT&T’s network, so you get full-speed access to nationwide HSPA+, unlimited calling, texting, MMS, and data for less than the cost of a far more limited plan with a post-paid carrier (as well as the convenience of never having to sign a contract). There are a few downsides to using an unofficial carrier, such as the lack of visual voicemail for those who rely heavily on that feature, but the benefits and price seem to far outweigh the downsides.

iPhone 13 review: photo quality, display, differences from the iPhone 12 and more

Yes, finally, I have it. iPhone 13, presented at the presentation on September 14th. A smartphone from which so much was expected and treated so skeptically when it finally came out. But it will be all the more interesting to look at and speculate whether the fresh new product from Apple is so uninteresting as those who have never held it in their hands are trying to describe it. Despite the fact that pre-orders have just started today, we have already obtained a new product, managed to test it and are now ready to tell you about it.

Meet the review of the iPhone 13 from AppleInsider.ru

  • 3 How the iPhone camera shoots 13
    • 3.1 How the Movie Effect mode works
  • 4 iPhone performance 13
  • 5 How many iPhones 13 lives from charging
  • 6 Should I buy an iPhone 13
  • Unboxing the iPhone 13

    The first thing you notice when you pick up the iPhone 13, more subconsciously than explicitly, is its packaging. She has not changed in terms of size and style of execution, but something is clearly wrong with her. Oh yes, exactly! Film! Or rather, its absence. Now the box from the iPhone is not wrapped in a film that many loved to tear off so much.

    Now the only thing you can take away when you unpack your new iPhone is this strap

    All that can be torn off instead of it is a seal strip that fixes both parts of the box and indicates that it has not been opened. Cupertino decided that boxing is not such a valuable thing to protect it at the expense of nature. It is said that the elimination of packaging films allowed Apple to reduce the amount of plastic waste generated by 600 tons per year.

    What’s in the iPhone 13 box

    The package contents have not changed and are unlikely to change in the coming years

    Inside, everything is the same as before:

    • iPhone 13
    • Lightning to USB-C cable
    • Envelope with accompanying documentation and stickers

    That’s it. But who cares anyway? Therefore, we turn to the actual smartphone.

    Which iPhone 13 color to choose

    There are fewer flowers this year, and they are calmer. Therefore, you can take, perhaps, any shade

    This year, Apple has seriously changed the color palette in which the iPhone 13 and 13 mini are produced. She removed pure white, light green, purple, yellow and lilac shades from the line. Instead, pink and a “shining star” appeared. Apple made two more shades brighter, if not darker. Blue turned to blue, and Product (RED), which was not red, but more coral, became really bloody – as it should be.

    Although the range of colors has been narrowed down, it will be easier to choose now. The shades have become calmer and not so bold. Therefore, even blue looks quite restrained and may be suitable for fans of conservative solutions. However, we digress again.

    iPhone 13 — differences from iPhone 12

    The bangs have become narrower, but taller, and the growth in height immediately caught my eye

    The iPhone 13 itself after the iPhone 12, which is my main smartphone, feels almost exactly the same. This statement is also true for a pair of iPhone 13 mini – iPhone 12 mini. Yes, they have changed the layout of the main cameras, but since 99% of the time you look at the screen, you don’t notice it. Obviously, the diagonal placement of wide and extra wide is a flirtatious flirtation with those who will see the iPhone 13 in your hands. So they can understand that this is a new model, not an old one.

    But something strange happened to the bangs. Yes, it has narrowed, but it seems to have become taller, taking up more space on the screen. I am aware that its dimensions have grown by some fractions of a millimeter, but due to the narrowing, the erroneous impression is created that the bangs have become even larger. This is not a very pleasant moment. It’s good that you forget about it after a few minutes of use and stop paying attention to it.

    How the screen of the iPhone 13 has changed

    The screen of the iPhone 13 has become brighter, but it does not update faster – like the iPhone 13 Pro

    The new items did not receive support for a refresh rate of 120 Hz, but they tweaked the brightness. Now at the peak (in normal mode) it reaches 800 nits versus 600 for the iPhone 12 and 12 mini. This is a really good upgrade, because now the screen of the smartphone does not go blind outdoors, which I had to deal with even in not the most sunny weather.

    The rest of the display is exactly the same, although I suspect that the technology used to make it allows it to refresh at 120Hz and that Apple simply forced that technology off. This prompted me to think about the production volumes of displays. After all, it was clearly more profitable for the company to order one large batch than two smaller ones. But I have no proof of this.

    How the iPhone 13 camera captures

    In cloudy weather, the sights in the lens of the iPhone 13 look not like a fountain, but still

    See how well the iPhone 13 handles the sky

    And here you can appreciate the high level of detail of small objects

    The iPhone 13 is also great at working out contrasting objects

    And this is a photo with an ultra wide-angle lens

    Check out the perspective

    Despite the fact that the change in the location of the main camera unit looks like a purely cosmetic change to flirt with others, in fact it is not quite true . Apple has redesigned the internal layout of the cameras, equipping them with larger sensors with increased light sensitivity. Due to this, the quality of the photo should be better.

    Must is the key word here. The iPhone 13’s photo capabilities probably need to be tested more thoroughly, but so far we haven’t noticed much of a difference. At least in the automatic shooting mode wide. Because there is something new and worthy of attention here. This is the Cinema Effect mode. Unfortunately, macro photography, like on the iPhone 13 Pro, was not delivered, although, according to Apple, it is not the lidar that is responsible for it, but the ultra-wide-angle lens that the iPhone 13 also has.0196

    The purpose of the cinematic effect is to provide a smooth transition of focus from one subject to another, like in a movie. Here’s how it works:

    • The camera keeps the main subject in focus, blurring the background behind it like a portrait shot;
    • Then, when someone else enters the frame or the main subject turns towards them, the camera will automatically focus on them;
    • The result will be the effect that we see in the cinema, when the focus switch switches our attention too.

    This is the responsibility of neural networks that continuously analyze the contents of the frame and control what is happening in the viewfinder. Apparently, this is why there is no cinematic effect on older iPhones – their hardware simply cannot handle the processing of such an array of data. However, everything here is built not only on automation. If necessary, you can change the focus already on the finished view. If you remember, Lytro cameras once offered the same thing.

    iPhone 13 performance

    It is still difficult to say anything specific about the performance difference between the iPhone of the current and previous generations. I do not trust benchmark tests, but it feels like the novelty works quite quickly. As if even faster than the iPhone 12. But perhaps this is the effect of the new device.

    In normal usage scenarios, including web surfing, the iPhone 13 seems to be actually faster than the iPhone 12

    But where the speed difference is definitely noticeable is when taking portrait photos. The iPhone 13 takes them with significantly less delay than my iPhone 12. No, my “old man” did not slow down, just made it clear that from the moment you press the shutter button to the moment you take a picture, you need to wait a bit. Such a moment of operation.

    Obviously, to experience the full difference in computing power between the iPhone 12 and 13, you need to use some new games. After all, the existing ones drive almost the same way. Is that when you first turn on some loaded a little faster. But since this is noticeable only in direct comparison with the iPhone 12, I will not dare to write down this difference as a plus for the new product.

    How long does the iPhone 13 live from charging

    We have yet to check the real autonomy of the iPhone 13

    The autonomy of the iPhone 13 is also an open question. Although it is clear that it should be significantly higher than that of the iPhone 12. However, from the point of view of practical use, nothing has changed so far: the charging speed has remained the same, full reverse charging has not appeared, and old MagSafe accessories fit the new product without problems.

    In numbers, everything looks like this:

    • Video playback 19 hours;
    • Watch video streaming – 15 hours;
    • Audio playback – 75 hours.

    But the fact that the iPhone 13 has become heavier is felt quite clearly. It would seem that the novelty added only 11 grams, but after the iPhone 12 you notice it right away. Weight gain is not a new product in the negative. You feel that you are holding a “thing” in your hands. But in the pocket of shorts or, moreover, a jacket, this thing will pull. Not much stronger than the iPhone 12, but still.

    The iPhone 13 mini is smaller, so the weight gain is almost negligible. It somehow hides the dimensions of the smartphone. He is too small to notice the extra 11 grams of weight. And, perhaps, the whole point is that I simply did not use it, and my hand did not get used to it, as in the case of the iPhone 12.

    Should I buy the iPhone 13

    Take the older version right away. iPhone 13 mini – do not take

    In practice, the iPhone 13 is the best version of the iPhone 12. There is definitely no point in switching from one to another. But due to the extra 2.5 hours of battery life and 200 nits of brightness, I would think so. Still, these are exactly the aspects that you interact with on a daily basis, and the improvements that the new product offers will really be noticeable in practice. Unlike the same cinema effect mode, which you turn on at most 2-3 times.

    No, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy an iPhone 13. Necessary. This is a great smartphone that surpasses the iPhone 12 in many ways. Therefore, if you were choosing a new iPhone for yourself, then the iPhone 13 will be the best choice. True, keep in mind that the older your previous smartphone, the more joy will be from the update. With iPhone XS, 11 and 12, I would not change. But with older models – yes, and yes again.

    iPhone 13 mini is an exception. In my opinion, this is some kind of misunderstanding that is not worth spending time and money on. It is very small and uncomfortable.
