12 pro is axed but you can buy officially refurbished.

I would have gone for the 12 Pro but seriously thinking the 13 Pro now.


Never got on with Android devices. Find them a rela pain and having a million more settings makes it a lot more confusing. They've also always got real slow over time in my opinion.


I like the fact IOS just does what it needs it to do. Easy to use, easy to navigate.


As someone who loves tkaing photos, the camera is very imnportant to me too.

As someone who loves taking photos, the camera is very important to me too.

TBH you are better off buying a proper camera, I bought a Nikon D5600 with 18-55 mm kit lens in 2019 for £650 then later a Tamrom 18-400 mm telephoto lens for £650.


I have taken some superb photos, I will when I get a job buy a lens up to 600 mm or 800 mm, but then you are looking up to £2,000.

I own a Nikon DSLR with 18-105 and 70-300 lenses but it's not everyday that you have your big SLR at hand for that quick pic. I can;'t exactly fit it in my pocket.



I use the SLR when going out for the intention of photography but also like to have my phone too. Both devices can achieve results.

£500 for a phone is silly money to me....
I've ever paid more than £200 and they seem to everything these silly money phones do, even phone calls!

I can understand £500 being alot to some although i don't really make many calls on it, it is mainly for Internet access and photos and its specs are great for that price in my opinion.

Re: Will you be buying the new iPhone13?

I think my 12 Pro is about £75 a month on an all you can eat plan, however, thankfully work pick up the bill.

I don’t mind Apple kit, modern windows laptops are getting just as difficult to tear down. The M1 Apple silicon is very good and already has intel & amd deeply worried, the next iteration even more so.

Re: Will you be buying the new iPhone13?

Huawei Honor 9 Lite here, I used Samsung phones for years. Never had an iPhone, but do have a 12.9" iPad Pro 2020 which is a good bit of kit, especially if you like creating art. Procreate is amazing.

If I had to buy another smartphone, I'd be looking at the Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro or something similar.

Re: Will you be buying the new iPhone13?

I currently have an iPhone 11 Max Pro, so due an upgrade. Ordered the iPhone 13 Max Pro with 512Gb storage because it's actually less per month than my current phone (although I could move to SIM only).

The 13 Pro Max doesn't have anything massive over the 11 that I need. Sure, there's LIDAR. There's new lenses and as with Halcyon, I too like my photography, but for times when I don't have the DLSR with me, the iPhone does an ok job. No real comparison to a DSLR, but for a regular print out to pop on a shelf in a frame, most people won't notice the imperfections.

However, batteries will deteriorate over time, so a couple of years between upgrades is fine (thus most people complain about company given iPhones as they are usually older models and most often, already used for a few years). a £1200 phone does sound a lot, but I will use it every single day for a lot of things. If I break that down, it costs me about 1.65 a day over the 2 years I will use it. This is how I tend to work out if something is worth the money to me. I'm happy with that. It's less than a coffee a day and less than a takeaway a week, which most people will happily pay. We don't tend to bother with takeaways very often.

Holidays however... £3000 for a week away pains me. Massively. I cannot justify that kind of spend, but the wife can. It's not all about me, so it gets paid. She gets her holiday, I can buy a phone I like.
