Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit, in this video we will show you, which phone, has the best battery life out of the iPhone 11 Pro vs the Samsung S20+.
iPhone 11 pro vs Samsung Battery Results
And the results might surprise you. It seems Apple might have been lying to you when they said the iPhone 11 Pro has Video playback streaming of up to 11 hours. Well in our test of YouTube streaming the iPhone 11 Pro only lasted for 8 hours 17 mins. Which is a long way short of the 11 hours that Apple suggested on their website. With the Samsung S20+ still on 26% of battery life and was the clear winner in this test. Which is pretty amazing when you consider the Samsung has a bigger screen than the iPhone 11 Pro.
The battery’s in each phone are different sizes. With the iPhone 11 Pro being lithium-Ion 3046 mAh battery and the Samsung s20+ having a lithium polymer 4500 mAh battery. This means the Samsung’s battery is bigger. Therefore, you would expect the Samsung to win. However, I guess, the take home in this test is the information on the Apple website could be seen and misleading. Since in our test it fell short about 2 and a half hours worth.
But, how would you ever know unless you had a YouTube channel like 123myIT to tell you.
Guys please feel free to let me know any other video or articles you would want me to take a look at. I am always looking for great feedback.

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you everything you need to know about the iPhone SE in three minutes. The iPhone SE is basically an iPhone 8 with the A13 Bionic processor from the iPhone 11. Pricing for the iPhone SE 2 starts at $399 USD and it comes in three different colours, Black, White and Product Red.
What you get inside the box iPhone SE 2
First up in the box you will find the documentation, Quick start guide, SIM card eject tool, Warranty information and Apple stickers. Next you have the iPhone SE itself. Other accessories are Earpods with lighting connector. Lighting USB cable a five watt USB charger which will take 2 hours and 45 minutes to charge to full. Not to forget that the SE supports wireless charging and is IP67 water and dust resistant.
The SE has a 4.7-inch widescreen LCD multi touch retina HD display with IPS technology. It has a 1334 by 750-pixel resolution at 326 ppi. If you compare it with the iPhone 11 Pro on the left, you can see the Pro has allot more screen real-estate on its 5.8-inch OLED display. In reality though they are almost the same body size with the Pro being 6 mm taller and 4 mm wider and only a mm thicker.
No Face Unlock, but you get Touch ID.
There is no face unlock just the all too familiar home button which has the Touch ID fingerprint scanner built in. On the front top of the SE we have a 7 megapixel FaceTime HD camera compared with 12 megapixel on the Pro. Both have a F2.2 aperture. On the back of the SE you have a single 12megapixel Wide camera, however the Pro also has a Triple Camera setup which features a Ultra Wide, Wide and Telephoto cameras.
Don’t worry out of the box the SE will still take amazing photos. Here are some comparisons between the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone SE. Can you spot the difference?
On the right side you have Sleep Wake power button and SIM card slot. Looking at the left you have the Ring Silent and Volume up and down buttons. On the bottom you have the lighting connector, microphone and stereo speakers.
The SE has the same A13 processor as the iPhone 11 Pro and here is the benchmark. Single core and Multi core score are almost the so not allot of difference in terms of performance. A fast processor is important when playing games and videos or when generally moving around the iPhone.
Battery life is the same as the iPhone 8 and you can expect about 27 hours between charges. This will get you about 8 hours or streamed video playback.

Hi Guys welcome to 123myIT! In this video, we will show you how to copy music from Android to iPhone, iPad and even iPod touch.
Guys this is the official way that Apple recommends to transfer you Music from Android to iPhone. However, you will need a computer to copy the music to first. Therefore, it can be a PC or a Mac.
If you need to transfer all your other files such as Contacts, Photos, Videos and Messages. I have already done a video for this and will put a link here.
The first step is to connect your Android device to your computer and find your music. On most devices, you can find these files in Music. On a Mac, you will need to install Android File Transfer, you can find the link on the 123myit.com website under downloads. Once you are on the Downloads page just scroll down to where it says, Android File Transfer. Then click on Download now and install the Android File Transfer software. Drag it across into your Applications folder. Once installed. Click on Go and Applications and open the Android File Transfer software. You might need to tap Allow on your Android device to give the computer access to your music folder. Close your windows and tap on the Android Transfer Software at the bottom of the screen.
Awesome you should now see the complete list of folders on your Android device. Find your music folder and drag it to the Computer desktop.
Unplug your Android
Once your music is copied, you can unplug your Android device you are finished with it now. Next, Plug in your iPhone iPad or iPod. Open up your Apple Music or iTunes. Then drag your Music folder from the Desktop into your Music or iTunes. Once that is done minimise your Music or iTunes app and the click on Go and Computer. Click on your iPhone and click on Pair if you have not done this already. Next click on the Music tab and put a tick in Sync music, then you can select Entire music library or you can do selected Albums. Once you are finished just click Apply, then go back into your iPhone and click Sync.
Cool, unplug your iPhone and check if your music copied across.
Copying the Music on PC
The process is the same on PC but you will need to download iTunes. Open up the Android device in Windows explorer and copy the music folder to your Computer Desktop. To download iTunes you can Google it or I have put a direct link on the 123myit.com website under Downloads. Just scroll down to where is says iTunes download.
Once installed you can open it up and remove your Android device. Plug in your iPhone and tap Trust. Drag your Music folder from the Desktop into your iTunes app. In iTunes click on your iPhone then select Music and again you will have the options to choose Entire music library or Selected Playlists. Once done click Apply then click Sync. Go ahead, remove your iPhone now, and check the Music has copied across.

Let me ask you this, when was the last time you cleaned and disinfect your iPhone? If your answer is never or rarely then now is probably a good time to start.
Apple has just recently updated their website on what you can do to clean or disinfect your device. So I wanted to show you guys how to do that.
Disinfect your iPhone
To disinfect your device Apple says you can use a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfectant Wipes. They also recommend warm soapy water and apply these with a soft lint free micro fibre cloth.
I would recommend warm soapy water over the a disinfectant alcohol for three reasons. The first reason is you don’t know what chemicals are in the wipes so do you research especially if you have Asthma. Seriously, it only takes a Google search to find out. Second, those chemicals could burn certain parts of your phone and the last reason wipes are just not good for the environment.
If you don’t have soap then warm clean water is the next best option and if you don’t have a microfiber cloth any lint free soft cloth will do.
Don’t press hard on your phone when cleaning
Now to clean your phone if you have a case just remove it. Here I have an iPhone case from Element I will put a product link in the description below. I will show you how to disinfect and clean your case as well.
When cleaning your device what you don’t want to do is wipe to hard or excessively. Use a soft lint free cloth. Don’t use paper towels. Make sure your device is unplugged from any cables and don’t use sprays or anything that can get into the ports.
Alright so just take your disinfectant wipe an gently wipe the device over. You just need to apply enough so its moist not wet. And you should be able to see that moisture that I have applied on the screen and cameras. Make sure you lightly do the sides of the device as well. If I turn the screen off you should be able to see the disinfectant on the screen.
Ok once you’re finished just sit your device down for 4 to 5 mins. This will give the disinfectant some time to dry and kill any Viruses or Bacteria on your phone.
Soapy warm water – Disinfect your iPhone
If you have soapy warm water and a cloth the process is the same again just apply some soapy warm water to your cloth and start wiping your device over. Again you should see that the phone is moist not wet and you should make sure you do the back and sides as well.
If you have lint or dust in the power, speaker, camera or ear piece ports you can very gently try to clean these with the SIM eject tool or a paper clip. Just be very careful not to touch or put any force on the inside of the ports. Very gently dislodge the lint or dust and then you can use a moist cotton tip to help remove the dust from the port.
The process is the same for your case. However, be careful when use alcohol wipes on your case, as some cases might not like the Alcohol wipes. I suggest just spot testing the alcohol wipes first in a part of the case you won’t see. If it works fine just wipe your case over the same way you did with your phone. With soapy warm water you should be fine to use it on your case. No issues there. Don’t forget you can use the SIM eject tool and cotton tips to get into the harder places. Once disinfected put your case down for 4 mins to dry.
Cover your phone with plastic sleve
The last idea I had might seem extreme. However, if you are working in an extreme environment like a health care worker, it might be helpful. If you are going into an area where you know there might be the potential for infection you could also try putting your phone in an airtight zip lock back. So disinfect your phone first. Once its dry pop it inside a zip lock back and seal it up. You can still use the device from inside the bag. Then when you leave the hospital or infected zone you can remove it from the bag. If you are in this situation, it might be a good idea to disinfect the device again after you remove the bag.
