🤦🏼‍♂️ Introduction

Hi and welcome to this week’s newsletter, everyone! Today, we’ll be talking a bit about my recent review of the Flip 5, some Watch Ultra 2 rumors, iPhone 15’s upcoming launch, and more!

First things first, let's talk about my newest video, where I review the Flip 5. First things first, let's talk about that compact size. It's like a snug little companion that slips easily into your palm and even the tightest jeans pockets. And hey, that satisfying snap when ending a call by shutting the phone? Priceless.

The real kicker for me? Just two front cameras, so no super fancy zooms. It's all about personal preferences, though. I mean, how often are you really capturing pics of people from a mile away, right?

And unfortunately, things like iMessage and FaceTime become a little puzzle to solve. Luckily, there are workarounds, like the app Beeper that bridges the iMessage gap. Face unlock, while not as fancy as Apple's Face ID, does its job, and the fingerprint reader is lightning-fast. Just watch out for those notifications behaving a bit oddly – you might need to show them who's boss.

To wrap it all up, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 has its ups and downs, but if you're ready to dive into the world of foldable phones and embrace the possibilities, this could be the ticket you've been waiting for!

As for me, I’ve really begun to dig foldable phones over flipable ones— such as the Pixel Fold (which is my personal favorite) or the Galaxy Fold 5.

Now, onto the iPhone 15’s coming launch in September. The shift to a universal USB-C port is definitely a standout for many, making cable chaos a thing of the past – a real game-changer for convenience.

For the photography enthusiasts, the iPhone 15 Pro Max is the one to watch, with its potential game-changing periscope lens for top-notch visuals. And here's a neat touch: the Pro models might even shed a bit of weight, thanks to the sleek titanium incorporation. With these features, it certainly feels like this series is something you should wait for!

However, holding off for the iPhone 15 might not be the best move if you've stumbled upon a fantastic iPhone deal that's too good to pass up. With the iPhone 15, I’m sure that the introduction of these new features will be accompanied by the likelihood of a higher price tag.

Have you guys heard the new Watch Ultra 2 rumors? Last year, the Apple Watch Ultra made waves with its tough build and cool features, and it seems like Apple's giving it a fresh coat of paint. Yep, rumor has it a new color might grace the second-gen Ultra. Picture a Space Black titanium version hanging out next to the standard titanium.

They also say it's sticking with its sleek design but getting a smaller box and a fresh processor. While that’s not a lot to go off of, Apple Watch and iPhone launches usually coincide, so I’m sure that the introduction of the Watch Ultra 2 will take place at Apple's September event. As of now, it seems like all we can do is wait!

In other news, I’ve enrolled myself into a course with Paddy Galloway in order to learn how to make better videos that hopefully you guys will love more, and grow the channel to even greater heights! I’ve found that it's a bit of a balancing act of earning income to fund it all while making these wider appealing videos at the same time.

Because of this, I’m really excited for you guys to see what we’ve been cooking up for the channel and future videos!

🗞 Favourite Things

  • I’ve been using the PITAKA-MagEZ phone case for my Flip 5, which I’ve been loving for its sleek design and grip!
  • These Edifier TWS1 Pro2 Earbuds are probably some of the cheapest and most high-quality earbuds that I’ve used as of late.
