Reviews of the iPhone 13 mini, Pro Max and Fitbit Charge 5
How was your week? Ours was great, because we tested no less than two iPhone 13s and a new smartwatch.
As far as we are concerned, the iPhone 13 mini is especially recommended if you now have an iPhone XS (or older model), and are not looking for a large device. If that is the case, then the iPhone 13 Pro Max is the phone for you. We are particularly impressed with the camera, because it has really improved a lot.

Last week we also reviewed the Fitbit Charge 5. As far as we’re concerned, this smartwatch is worth its price tag, provided you have a deep pocket. The subscription service Fitbit Premium can be quite expensive.

‘iPhone 14 (Pro) will still have a notch in the screen’
With the iPhone X from 2017, the iPhone got a design with a notch in the screen for the first time. This includes the selfie camera and the TrueDepth camera system. The latter is needed for facial recognition: Face ID.
With the iPhone 14 models, the selfie camera seems to get a different place. According to reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple wants to integrate it into a hole in the screen, also called a punch hole called. Several Android flagships have had such a design for a while now.

The iPhone 12 has dropped significantly in price
The iPhone 13 is a fantastic device, but don’t flatten the iPhone 12. This device can last for years and has been a lot cheaper since the arrival of the new model. It is therefore a good time to purchase the iPhone 12 now.
Just don’t do that to Apple itself. You still pay the top prize in the Apple Store. Several providers and web stores already offer the phone much cheaper.
