Excellent 5G phone with great camera. Alpine Green
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
Coming from the awesome base android on my retired Google Pixel 3 XL, I was really way up high on the fence on whether I should go Bach to the Apple ecosystem on the go-around. Niggling issues with the Pixel along troubling (Google) Pixel 6 Pro issues, along with my Pixel 3’s refusal to reconnect with my home WiFi, and the basic issues experienced by non-novice Pixel 6 Pro issues forced the decision to try the iPhone 13 Pro Max. I am quite surprised that I am very happy with the new iPhone! While the automated transfer process aborted four times without any info as to what was the problem, my aborting the process wasn’t a disaster. The only issue, which I didn’t like, was the app not transferring my Verizon messages. Fortunately, all was not lost, because Verizon provides their Message+ app, which supplies my message history. It requires using both iMessage and Message+ When I may need an older post, but it works. Everything else transferred. I had many niggling issues with the old Pixel 3, which I thought were simply due to the apps, but the iPhone fixed everything! My conclusion is that the issues were with the Google phone, and are still there in the Google 6 Pro phone! I don’t think I’m wrong in this conclusion. I am an electronics engineer and a well above average geek. Google must fix their hardware problems for the Pixel 7 iteration, or give up on hardware and focus on the Android OS. The iPhone’s images are pretty good, but the telephoto shots look very processed. Getting better, however. This phone’s battery life is the best, to date for any phone: the M1 mobile processor is definitely at the state of the art!
Gave to wife as present and when she picked from best buy site she said it had a purple face and was excited - came in slate-
she was disappointed but she loves the performance and ease of upgrade- everything works well!!
I would recommend this to a friend

What a great phone!
Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.
I love my new iPhone! It is great for my school, work, and personal life. I would definitely recommend this phone to everyone!
I've had been using my iPhone 6s Plus till it decided to depart me. Now that I have made this great upgrade, I must say this has been the best. So far not much has changed but a sunset lover and a Barber who seeks perfect photos, this has truly been an amazing experience.
Beautiful phone very fast and 5G is awesome display clear battery life good

From Android to infinity!!!
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
Having been a loyal Android user(Samsung) for over a decade, my family convinced me to try an iPhone. With the help of Samantha at my Best Buy in San Bernardino, the transition has been painless. I’m glad I made the switch! I had high expectations and the 13 pro max has not let me down and the camera is phenomenal!
I love this phone, me & my wife had 12 pro max’s, she upgraded as soon as 13 pro max released I waited for 14, well after they released the Alpine green I had to trade up!! So happy I did, I didn’t think the actual phone would be noticeably different, boy was I wrong, the battery is WAY better, & the 12 PM was already awesome, the promotion is a game changer, I can never go back now, all the camera upgrades sound Ho hum but I assure you they’re not, I’m pleasantly suprised & that rarely happens these days, I almost made it to the 14 pro max, under 2 months away when I bought this, but honestly I’m happy I did, the only down side is how the trade in works now, I still have my old phone 3 weeks later & im trying daily to get credit on my Verizon account & send my phone in, you don’t have help & & don’t hand in your old phone at store any more, they want to give me half of the promo that’s still advertised

Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max reviewNot just the best iPhone ever, but also the one with the 'biggest camera update ever' - that would be this year's iPhone 13 Pro, which we have here in Max
iPhone 13 Pro Review: New Expensive iPhone Is Better Than Old Expensive iPhoneAn ultra-smooth screen, improved low-light photos, and absolutely ridiculous battery life make the iPhone 13 Pro an obvious choice.
iPhone 13 Pro Max: 5 thoughts after 3 weeks with Apple's new flagshipWe're coming up on three weeks since the release of the iPhone 13 lineup , and my iPhone 13 Pro Max has already become an integral part of my tech setup. Head below as I break down five quick impressions of Apple's flagship iPhone 13 Pro Max after
A:AnswerI upgraded my iPhone from the 6S Plus 32gb to the 13 Pro Max 256gb. This was a HUGE upgrade and I'm so happy with it. (Having 8 times the amount of storage I had before is awesome!) I purchased my new phone on 12/19/21 at the El Cajon store and signed up with T-Mobile's Magenta Plan (I originally had Cricket which was good, but since I'm upgrading my phone I wanted to upgrade the service too). Jared at Best Buy told me that normally for my phone (since it's older) T-Mobile would only give me $50 to trade it in, but because it was the holidays T-Mobile gave me $200 instead! I don't know it they're still giving $200 for the 6S Plus, but it doesn't hurt to ask. Good luck!
