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.

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit. In this video we will show you how to make your phone number private on Android in 2020. Ok Guys if you want to call someone’s phone but you don’t want your number to display on their phone then this video will help. There is a few ways you can hide your number so let’s get started.
If you just want to hide your number on a single call. The you can dial a prefix before your dial then number. So for example my prefix in Australia is #31# and then the phone number I am calling. Remember this is for a single call so you would have to type your prefix every time. As always test this to another phone before you make that important call.
Make your number Private on Android
If you want to make your phone private on all calls then tap on phone and then tap the three dots. If you don’t have the three dots. Just go into the Settings Then Call Settings on your Phone. On my Samsung I tap on Supplementary services and then show caller id and then hide number. Other Android phones might be different. You might have Operator’s Call Settings, Additional Settings, and Owner number. If you can’t find it there then try one of these other locations for different Android phones. Ok before we call that crazy person lets test it to another phone to make sure its hidden.
Please always test the number before calling. Don’ take my word for it. Type *67. This code will work with virtually any North American provider.
Numbers to use – Test them first ! 🙂
*67 – United States (except AT&T), Canada (landline), New Zealand (Vodafone phones) #31# – United States (AT&T phones), Australia (mobile), Albania, Argentina (mobile), Bulgaria (mobile), Denmark, Canada (mobile), France, Germany (some mobile providers), Greece (mobile), India (only after network unlock), Israel (mobile), Italy (mobile), Netherlands (KPN phones), South Africa (mobile), Spain (mobile), Sweden, Switzerland (mobile)
*31# – Argentina (landline), Germany, Switzerland (landline) 1831 – Australia (landline) 3651 – France (landline)
*31* – Greece (landline), Iceland, Netherlands (most carriers), Romania, South Africa (Telkom phones) 133 – Hong Kong
*43 – Israel (landline)
*67# – Italy (landline) 184 – Japan 0197 – New Zealand (Telecom or Spark phones) 1167 – Rotary phones in North America
*9# – Nepal (NTC prepaid/postpaid phones only)
*32# – Pakistan (PTCL phones)
*23 or *23# – South Korea 067 – Spain (landline) 141 – United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland If your phone is on a GSM network (e.g., most Androids), you can always dial #31# to block your caller ID.
Awesome its working your number is coming up as No Caller ID or it will Show as private number.

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video, we will show you how to Copy data from iPhone to Android with iCloud 2020. Ok Guys so we are going to copy the data from your iPhone to iCloud and then download that data to your Android device. This will copy data such as Contacts, Messages, Free apps, Photos, Videos and Documents. We will use WIFI so make sure both devices are on WIFI.
Also this should with most Android phones, the process will be simular but you might have to work out which copy software to use. Ok let us start.
On your iPhone go into settings scroll to the top and sing into iCloud with your Apple id.
Sign into iCloud – Copy data iPhone to Android
Once you are signed into iCloud the next step is to do a Backup to iCloud. To do this tap iCloud and then scroll to the bottom and tap on iCloud Backup. This is where you would tap backup now to start the backup. However before you do this lets go back and select what we want to backup remember you will be copying this to your Android device.
Ok I am going to go in and turn off anything that I don’t want to backup. Ok once finished there is a few more options to turn off.
Things to turn off before you get started.
You need to turn off Turn off two-factor authentication if you have that turned on. To do this go out of settings and into Safari and browse to appleid.apple.com. Once there sign in with your Apple ID and password. Log into your account tap on Security, then scroll to the bottom, and turn off two-factor authentication. As you can see, I do not have it turned on.

And then just toggle off iMessages. Go back into settings and back into iCloud again. Tap iCloud. Again go down to iCloud backup. Tap backup now to start the iCloud backup. Depending on how much data you have this might take a while. Head over to your Android device and start up the restore software. This is a Samsung S20 so the software is called Smart switch.
Smart Switch App
You can find it in the menu or if you are on other Android devices look under Settings and then Accounts and Backup or the Backup area of your Android device. Always Tap update.

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit, in this video I will show you a first look at the Samsung Galaxy S20 plus.
Samsung S20 + Display
It’s pretty clear the Samsung S20 + does have allot of differences over its predecessor the S10 plus. These differences start with the design. The display is taller now and runs at 120 Hz along with that you an upgraded CPU, more Ram and a bigger battery. In addition, the annoying Bixby button is gone, thank goodness! Seems like Samsung is listening. Other features include and updated Camera, which we will talk more about later, and great sounding speakers.
The colour that we have here today is Cosmic Grey, however the S20 Range also comes in Cloud Blue, Cloud Pink and Cosmic Black. In the box you also get some See us first, documentation with registration information and next up you will have a super-fast it’s a 25-watt charger and you can expect to fully charge the S20 in around an hour. The adapter I have here is the Australian new Zealand version, however if you are in the US you would have a US charger. It’s pretty standard these days to get a set of Headphones, these are design by AKG and are USB C Headphones. They also have three different sizes of rubber ear tips.
Hidden away in the top of the box you will have a SIM eject tool plus a quick start guide along with a see through case for your S20 phone. Having a cover case right out of the box is something that I think really makes a big difference and it is a really nice inclusion by Samsung. The quick start guide just shows you how to setup the phone and you have some warranty information.
S20 Plus Case
To show you what they see through case looks like on the S20 plus, you just push it in at the top and bottom corners. Without this case, the phone itself is a bit slippery, but once you put the case on straight away, it does not want to slip out of your hands. Actually it’s really hard to tell that there is even a case on the phone.
Let’s talk about the display. The S20 plus has a 6.7 inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X Capacitive touchscreen display. With a resolution of 1440 x 3200 pixels and 525 pixels per inch. Therefore, it is slightly larger than the S10 plus display. The display also supports HDR10+ and has a refresh rate of 120 and 60 Hz. There is no annoying camera notch on this model. Rather you just have a small round cut out for the 10 Megapixel front facing camera which has a F/2.2 aperture and it supports Auto HDR.
Samsung S20 + and iPhone 11 Pro side by side.
For the iPhone users out there is a quick comparison between the iPhone 11 Pro and S20 plus screen sizes. As you can see the S20 plus is a little bit wider and a fair bit taller.
Movies are amazing on this screen. I’ve set the refresh rate to 120 Hz and will give you 20 seconds of the new Star Wars screener. Just remember that it will be different when you have the S20 plus in your hand as some of the detail is lost during the recording, but you get the idea. One last thing listen out for the speaker sound it’s probably the most over looked feature on the S20 plus. They are described as simply Stereo Speakers but the sound is incredible. Here it is.
Camera Zoom on the S20 Plus
The Zoom on the S20 range is next level with the S20 and S20 plus doing 30 x Zoom and the S20 Ultra doing 100 x Zoom. Here is the S20 plus in action. It is a bit hard to see but can focus in on Sydney Tower which is about three miles or 5 kilometres away.
I took some pictures at the different Zooms to give you an idea. So the way it works is that its Optical Zoom up until the 2 x Zoom. Then from four x to 30 x it’s Software Zoom. Samsung says they use AI to determine what the higher Zoom photos will look like. As you get higher in the Zoom, you do notice some pixilation of the photos. Overall pretty amazing for something you can store in your pocket. Here it is again as I focus on a building that is out of the park and across the road.
Let’s not forget the other great features of the S20 plus. It has wireless charging and is IP68 dust and water-resistant. Along with Face Unlock, Finger Print scanner Micro SD card slot. I really think that the S20 range is worth upgrading too.

Every now and then you will need to make phone calls from your phone where you don’t want the person you are calling to know the number you are calling from. I made this video for privacy reasons if you wish to hide your number you can follow this guide. Just be aware some people might think your hidden number is a sales call so they might not answer when you want them too.
So what happens when you setup your phone and make a call what does the other person see?
On a Samsung phone it should look something like the picture below.
On a iPhone is should look something like the picture below.
So to do this go to your phone icon and you will have 3 little dots in the top right hand corner. Tap on those 3 dots and then tap on Settings.
Scroll down to where it says more settings. Next you should have show my caller ID, tap on that. Simply select Hide number.
Any outgoing calls that you make should be hidden from the person you are calling.
The next thing you need to do is to test your hidden number before you call out with the phone. The last thing you want to do is not turn on the Phone Number private and give away your number. Test it to a friends phone or a family member and you should be good to go.
If you want more information on How to make your Phone Number private on Samsung you can check out the official Samsung website here.
This video will show you how to do a factory reset when you have Forgotten PIN Passcode Pattern on Samsung. The phone used In this video is the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
In this video I will show you how to Unlock Samsung Phone if have Forgotten PIN Passcode or Pattern.
Ok guys so we have all done it, we have just setup a password or pin code on our Samsung device and we can’t remember what it was.
The unlock method I am about to show you is called factory reset and it will remove the Password Pattern or PIN Code, but the down side is it will also wipe the data on the phone. Remember that a PIN or password is setup to protect the data on the phone in case you lose the phone. So I suggest to try to remember the passcode or pin first.
A tip that can help you remember is, put the phone down for 30 mins and don’t think about it. Come back to the phone and try your Pattern or PIN again. Sometimes your muscle memory will just do the code automatically without thinking about it. Its worked for me before.
Ok the next thing I need to mention is FRP Lock, Factory reset protection.
FRP lock locks your device with the Google account that you used on your phone. So if you dont know your Google account then I suggest trying to remember if first as you will be asked to enter it after we do the factory reset. To find the Google account you can go to settings and accounts.
Ok lets get started with the Factory reset.
Simultaneously press and hold the power button + volume up button + home key until the Samsung logo appears, then release only the power button. Release the volume up button and home key when the recovery screen appears. From the Android system recovery screen, select wipe data/factory reset.
