    iPhone 12 Pro Why'd I switch?!

    So, I'll admit. I was bored. I've owned iPhones since the 4s. And the XS Max being almost exactly the same form factor since the 6....was kind of weighing on me. Nothing was new anymore. And when I looked at the 11 Pro Max, I couldn't get excited. So I bought a Note 20 Ultra. What a beautiful...
