Secrets of Awesome Dinner Guests: What Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King, Jr, Helen Keller, and John Lasseter Can Teach You About Success and Fulfillment
It is good to see this book as a paperback now. I find this to be a useful book. I enjoy how valuable quotes from the successful people are included. Here is one of my favorite quotes that is in the book: "Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. — Steve Jobs."
One of the useful ideas is how to be careful with email and avoid creating new problems and wasting time.

Marcoux goes on to explain about how Steve Jobs' charisma accomplished great things.

I appreciate how Marcoux provides strategies for good listening. He shows how to deal with people's tendency to be judgmental. His solutions for communication traps are really helpful.
Infidels
Infidels
Although I enjoyed Desire (1976) and even Slow Train Coming (1979), Bob Dylan didn't make another album equal to the greatness of Blood On The Tracks (1975) until 1983's Infidels. Co-produced with Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits, his trademark sound comes across on this record. Him and Mick Taylor provide great guitar work while Robbie Shakespeare and Sly Dunbar give the album a reggae feel with their rhythm section. After a trilogy of Christian records, this was thought as more of a return to secular music as herd in "Neighborhood Bully." While religious imagery is still somewhat present on songs like "Jokerman" in particular but there are also themes of love and loss as well as political protest on the greed of unions and corporations on "Union Sundown." "I And I" is a personal song that could be seen as Dylan's struggle between his identity and public image. The album ends with "Don't Fall Apart On Me Tonight", a beautiful and hopeful love song that may be out of place lyrically from the grittiness of the rest of the record but it is still a nice ballad that brings the album to a satisfying close.

A controversy surrounding the album is a few great songs were left off of it, one of them being the brilliant "Blind Willie McTell" which was later released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 3., this album would be even better if it was included I agree but this is still a worthy release from a era of mixed albums from the songwriter. The ridiculously over produced Empire Burlesque (1985) and the weak Down In The Groove (1988) were made during this period but Dylan also made one of his best records at the end of the decade with Oh Mercy (1989), that and Infidels are in my opinion the two Dylan albums from the 80s that should be in any music fan's collection.
Marvel Studios' Captain America: The Winter Soldier (4K UHD)
Marvel Studios' Captain America: The Winter Soldier (4K UHD)
Ich hätte nie erwartet das Captain America einer meiner absoluten Lieblinge des MCUs werden würde. Ich meine, come on: sein albernes Kostüm (besonders im ersten Avengers-Teil), sein plakativer Name, sein simples Schwarz/Weiß-Denken -und Gehabe. Wie käme ich dazu diesem Charakter auch nur im Entferntesten was abzugewinnen. Wobei zugegebenermaßen sein erster Film nicht ganz so schlecht war. Und ja, Steve Rogers ist nicht ganz unsympathisch (v.a. Dank Chris Evans Darbietung). Aber neben Iron-Man zog er lange Zeit den Kürzeren für mich.

Das änderte sich aber schlagartig als dieser Film das Licht der Marvel-Welt erblickte. Die Russo-Brothers nahmen diesen simplen Charakter und zwangen ihn aus seinem Schwarz/Weiß-Denken auszubrechen und sich weiterzuentwickeln. Und Alter Falter… Das gelang ihnen wirklich, wirklich gut.

Story im Groben:

Steve Rogers lebt sich allmählich in der neuen Welt ein, in welche er 2 Jahre zuvor erwacht ist. Da er nichts Besseres mit sich anzufangen weiß, kämpft er für S.H.I.E.L.D. an vorderster Front. Doch Zweifel plagen ihn, denn die Welt hat sich seit 1945 doch drastisch verändert. Jeder um ihn herum scheint sein eigenes Süppchen zu kochen. Selbst seinen engsten Kollegen scheint er nicht trauen zu können. Nach einem scheinbaren Routine-Einsatz, gerät für den unbeugsamen Helden alles aus den Fugen. Jemand in den eigenen Reihen agiert verdeckt aus dem Hintergrund um nicht nur S.H.I.E.L.D., sondern auch die gesamte Welt in den Abgrund zu reißen.

Nahezu auf sich allein gestellt, ohne zu wissen wem er trauen kann, macht Rogers sich auf die Verschwörung aufzudecken, wodurch er alsbald selbst zum Gejagten wird. Dicht auf den Fersen ist ihm hierbei der mysteriöse und gefährliche Winter Soldier.

Meine Meinung:

Dieser Film sticht aus all den MCU-Filmen mit am Meisten heraus. Beim zweiten Cap-Film handelt es sich um einen Action-Thriller, wodurch er sich schon stark vom ersten CA-Film abhebt. Klar, der Film hat seine typisch albernen MCU-Momente. Aber diese binden sich m.M.n. ganz gut ein und sind zur Auflockerung der Stimmung ganz gut. Denn der Film ist extrem spannend, düster und bietet tolle Kampf-Choreographien (kein Vergleich zu den miserablen Kampf-Einlagen des ersten Cap-Abenteuers).

V.a. aber haben mir die Story und Figuren Spaß gemacht. Man hat sowohl alte Gesichter in Form von Cap’s Avenger-Kollegin Black Widow, als auch Maria Hill, Jasper Sitwell und Nick Fury, aber auch viele, viele Neuzugänge wie Robert Redford als S.H.I.E.L.D.-Chef Alexander Piers, Brock Rumlow, Sharon Carter und allen voran Sam Wilson aka „The Falcon“. Daneben gibt es noch nette Cameos bekannter Gesichter wie Hayley Atwell als Cap’s große, aber stark gealterte Liebe Peggy Carter, sowie dem schmierigen, aus „Iron Man 2“ bekannten, Senator Stern. Der Cast ist hervorragend und in top Spiellaune. Chris Evans entpuppt sich als echter Glücksgriff für die Rolle des Captain America, da er es schafft der Figur Glaubwürdigkeit und Tiefe zu verleihen. Auch bekommt Scarlett Johansson hier deutlich mehr zu tun. Wobei ihre Figur der Natascha Romanoff, alias Black Widow, hier das erste Mal deutlich zwielichtiger erscheint als noch zuvor in „Iron Man 2“ und „The Avengers“. Genauso wie auch der Meister der Geheimnisse Nick Fury, welcher wie gewohnt von Samuel L. Jackson gespielt wird. Vom Altmeister Redford darf man generell perfektes Spiel erwarten. Auch er schien Spaß an der Rolle des Alexander Pierce gehabt zu haben. Zur Figur des Winter Soldiers will ich an dieser Stelle nichts verraten. Lasst euch selbst überraschen.

Was man den Russos hoch anrechnen muss ist der Mut diesen Weg mit der Figur des Captain Americas zu gehen. Nicht nur das sich Steve Rogers weiterentwickelt und hinterher nicht mehr blind irgendwelchen Institutionen wie S.H.I.E.L.D. oder dem eigenen Regierungsapparat vertraut, er legt auch sein einfältiges Schwarz/Weiß-Denken ab und sieht sich selbst damit konfrontiert Geheimnisse vor seinen Freunden aufzubauen (siehe die Kulmination dessen in „Civil War“). Er wird damit als Charakter greifbarer und interessanter. Zumal man diesmal keinen wirklich greifbaren Schurken hat wie noch zuvor mit Red Skull und Loki. Ja, es gibt einen zentralen Drahtzieher, aber wie Cap, tappt der Zuschauer auch zunächst im Dunkeln.

Man hat zudem hier nicht das Gefühl ein x-beliebiges Einzelabenteuer zu sehen wie noch in Thor 2. Die Geschichte hat drastische Auswirkungen auf den kompletten Handlungsverlauf des MCU.

Fans der Reihe werden hier viele, viele Querverweise zu anderen Figuren finden. Easter Eggs gibt es daher viele (erst beim letzten Durchgang ist mir selbst wieder eines aufgefallen). Das CGI ist okay. An manchen Stellen besser, an anderen wieder eher schlechter (gerade gegen Ende gibt es wie ich finde einen etwas nicht so schönen Schnitzer). Die Musik von Henry Jackman ist zweckdienlich und für sich gesehen eher austauschbar. Wobei er hin und wieder die eindeutig besseren Ur-Themen von Alan Silvestri aufgreift.

Fazit:

„The Winter Soldier“ ist nicht nur einer der besten MCU-Filme, er ist auch eine absolute Überraschung, da sicher die wenigsten erwartet haben dass man so viel aus dem guten Cap rausholen kann. Ich meine, wir reden hier über einen der m.M.n „lächerlichsten“ Superhelden- und die Russo-Brothers transformieren diese ursprünglich platte Figur in einen facettenreicheren und interessanten Charakter. Der Spagat den man geschaffen hat zwischen untypisch -und doch typisch MCU ist sehr interessant. Die letzten beiden CA-Filme fühlen sich auch deutlich geerdeter an. Zumindest wenn man diese mit den Abenteuern der Guardians, Dr. Strange oder Thor vergleicht. Manche halten den Streifen gar für Marvel‘s Antwort auf DC’s „The Dark Knight“, was ich persönlich für zu übertrieben halte.

Dennoch ist dieser Film ganz klar ein Highlight der zweiten Phase und des MCUs im Allgemeinen. Volle Empfehlung!
LEGO Marvel Avengers Thanos Mech 76141 Cool Action Building Toy for Kids with Mech Figure Thanos Minifigure, New 2020 (152 Pieces)
LEGO Marvel Avengers Thanos Mech 76141 Cool Action Building Toy for Kids with Mech Figure Thanos Minifigure, New 2020 (152 Pieces)
I bought this LEGO Thanos Mech for myself because I thought that it would look cool on my desk since I collect Marvel items. Upon opening, everything seemed fine. I started building the main body and upper arms and legs. Once I completed the upper legs, something seemed off. One leg was capable of being posed, but the other was very loose on the peg that connects the body to the upper leg. I looked it over, thinking that I might have used the wrong part, but no. The piece that connects to the body was cracked, causing it to be very loose. I can’t even get the mech to stand up because the leg just gives out. I really want to love this set, but that one issue kinda ruins it for me. Of course this isn’t the sellers fault. I am not making this review to blame anyone. It is just a manufacturing error/mistake that could happen to anyone.
Rubie's Women's Thor: Ragnarok Valkyrie Costume
Rubie's Women's Thor: Ragnarok Valkyrie Costume
My product got here fast seeing that I ordered it on a Sunday or Monday and received it on a Wednesday. Well before Halloween so that was great! I took away a star because it smells like perfume or cologne. It’s not even a light smell, very heavy. So someone either returned it after wearing or the seller dosed it in perfume to cover a smell. Good thing is that i only need it for one day and more than likely will not wear it a second time. Other than that, everything is good. My measurements are 40G bust, 38 waist and 47 hips so I’m pretty heavy everywhere. I’m ordered a large which is my usual in costumes and it’s a little tight in the chest area but I have a minimizing bra so that’s not a problem. The tights fit great but the belt is small on me. I probably won’t wear it anyway because I will be at work and don’t want to deal with putting it back on every time is comes off lol. I will upload photos on Halloween. Hope this helps!
100 First Words for Little Geeks
100 First Words for Little Geeks
I LOVE THIS BOOK! No matter what your fandom, there's something in here for every geek! I was THRILLED with the Doctor Who references...but if you like Sherlock, Hunger Games, Star Trek, Star Wars, tabletop or MMO gaming, Firefly, Heros, Monsters, general science or math theories...this book is FOR YOU.

My son has been interested in this book for well over a year, and he's 2.5 yrs old now. He knows a ton of the pictures and can tell you what they are. He has trouble saying "Fibonacci Sequence" but has "alternate reality" down pat. I'm one proud nerd mama!
Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?
Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?
We were given a version of Mr Brown Can Moo and our son loved it, so I've since bought lots of copies to give out to his friends as first birthday presents. The book is relatively short and goes through about a dozen or so different sounds, in the classic style of Dr Seuss with a bit of zany rhymes. My son was very attentive to it from about 6 months and still likes to listen to us reading it to him, and even laughs when we make certain sounds ("He can sound like a cork...Pop, Pop, Pop, Pop" - and when I make the pop sound I do it with my finger against the side of my mouth). It's colorful and the pictures and text are bright and fun to look at. The only reason I rate it a 4 is that the original version we were given has more sounds (more content/pages) and the one I've ordered here seems to have a couple fewer sounds. I can't think why this is. At any rate, a great book for a bit of fun; I think Dr Seuss is always a winner though and this is a great one for younger babies and children who won't have the patience for something more lengthy like The Cat in the Hat.
I Am Not Going to Get Up Today!
I Am Not Going to Get Up Today!
It's really a fun book to read. The illustrations aren't by Seuss so I'm assuming this is probably one he'd never intended to publish. But it's out there now. And you've got your 1 star reviewers up in arms because the kid gets to stay in bed. OH NO! (Screams the logical person) a kid gets to sleep in? How terrible.
I read a review by a "working parent" (congratulations on being a part of the group known as everybody) who was so upset that it seems this book will derail her whole life. I think a little good parenting would prevent that. Plus, as a working parent it's kinda nice when the kids want to sleep in. It gives you a little down time. Was it the best Seuss book? No. Was it fun? Yes. Was it illustrated by Seuss? No. 3 stars.
Tolstoy on Shakespeare A Critical Essay on Shakespeare
Tolstoy on Shakespeare A Critical Essay on Shakespeare
Only a great writer and thinker such as Tolstoy can write a criticism of the greatest acknowledged dramatist and playwright with such breezy simplicity and hitting conviction that readers began to realize their conflict with Shakespearean literature can't be manifested more bluntly. Giving voice to our dilemmas regarding veritable nuances and dispensable excesses of the plots of his plays by clear examples, he paints a clear picture via his research and astute observations of Shakespeare's writing style. He also provides possible reasons for his unsympathetic attitude towards feudal class which is constantly visible through his works. Overall this essay is a total eye opener and provides a sharp and real character sketch of Shakespeare which might be a punch in the eye for his worshipers, but Tolstoy does so with great reasoning and simplicity that one can't help but acknowledge it the way actually it is.
Big Country: Stories of Louis L'Amour, Vol. 1
Big Country: Stories of Louis L'Amour, Vol. 1
Two short stories, Ride, You Tonto Raiders and War Party.

1st Matt Sabre, young gunfighter, shoots a man. To his surprise, the man in dying words gives him $5,000 and begs him to take the money to his wife.

2nd A boy nearing manhood, and his mother travel in a wagon train.

Both stories take me into the Wild West. The first one showed honor character, as portrayed in L'Amour's books.

As short stories, the characters aren't completely sketched. That said, the 1st story needed a little more to it to be believable. Yet, I did enjoy the story. The second one: Great.
Asterix 02: Asterix und Kleopatra (German Edition)
Asterix 02: Asterix und Kleopatra (German Edition)
Hab zufällig entdeckt das es die Bände von Asterix zu kaufen gibt hab mir gleich einige geholt und bin total zufrieden., es sind eins zu eins die "alten" Comics. Allerdings sollte man die wirklich nur mit dem Tablett lesen: 1. ist alles in Farbe und 2. ist es von der Größe her schön zu lesen.
Ich würde da sogar nur ein "großes" Tablett empfehlen dort passt die Schriftgröße super, auf dem Handy muss man zu weit reinzoomen und auch bei einem z.b. I-Pad mini is teilweise die Schrift etwas klein.
Das beste Leseerlebnis hat man mit einem großen Tablett.

I read this book as part of a collection called Eight British Detective Novels. However, this is not a mystery or a detective novel. There is no detective to be found, either professional or amateur. There is not even a killing until the story is about three-fourths through. You might think then that a mystery will finally develop. But no, immediately after the murder, the story takes an abrupt change and becomes a story about the relationship of the two young male and female characters, and the murder is scarcely mentioned again. It's hard to say just what genre this story fits into. It's not really a romance and there is not much suspense. I have read and enjoyed a lot of books by Edgar Wallace, but I would not recommend this one. It just wanders aimlessly until it ends.
Robert Ludlum's(TM) The Ares Decision: A Covert-One Novel
Robert Ludlum's(TM) The Ares Decision: A Covert-One Novel
This review is for the audiobook version.

I am a huge fan of the Covert-One series. I have all the audiobooks and have listened to each of them, other than "The Ares Decision", more than once. That being said, I found The Ares Decision to be the least enjoyable of the series.

Overall, I thought Jeff Woodman did an excellent job of reading. It is easy to imagine that are multiple actors performing. I am on the lookout for more books that he has read. One thing that bothered me was the voice that he used for Sarie van Keure. It sounded a lot like--OK, exactly alike--the voice he used for Valentina Metrace in "The Arctic Event". I found that to be a little distracting.

I was disappointed with the writing. The characters seemed to be different, especially Peter Howell, and less well developed, more one-dimensional than in previous Covert-One novels. I also feel there are gaps in the story that should have been explained. I wondered more than once if I had the unabridged version. (I do.) The Covert-One series has always required a degree of `suspension of disbelief'. For `The Ares Decision' you will have to work at it.

While I have listened to the previous Covert-One novels more than once, "the Ares Decision' may be one and done. Maybe they can get James Cobb to write the next one.
J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator
J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator
This book's 208 pages feature precisely 200 illustrations, 104 of them in colour, executed by JRRT in pencil, crayon, black and coloured inks and watercolours. Almost all of the monochrome images derive from black and white originals.

The gallery begins with JRRT's earliest works - scenes of domestic family life, architectural sketches, paintings of rural and seaside vistas dear to JRRT's heart. Chapter 2 introduces the queer symbolic works and visionary paintings that JRRT moved on to as he began to gestate the world of the Silmarillion. Chapter 3 focuses on the very different material that JRRT produced to entertain his children: the series of letters purporting to come from Father Christmas, and illustrations for the tales of Roverandom and Mr Bliss.

These lead us to JRRT's labours to illustrate The Hobbit, where his art probably reached its zenith. In their longest chapter, Wayne and Christina bring us not only the paintings and drawings that Allen and Unwin published, but also the many preliminary experiments that JRRT attempted en route to them, and also several examples of works by other hands that JRRT seems to have been inspired by.

JRRT's Lord of the Rings art was, sadly, meagre by comparison, but this book shows us what little there was of it, ranging from a few more or less finished drawings (including his designs for dust jackets) to some hasty scribbles dashed off by JRRT in the heat of composition. Matters conclude with JRRT's late enthusiasm for elaborate multi-coloured doodlings on readers' letters and newspapers' crossword pages, as well as his elvish heraldry and his exquisite calligraphy. Wayne and Christine also supply an expert commentary setting images in their biographical context , complemented by meticulous notes, a bibliography and an index.

This is the best book that I've yet seen about Tolkien's work with brush and pencil, superbly designed and printed on glossy paper throughout - his paintings are reproduced even more vividly than in the Bodleian's mammoth exhibition catalogue "Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth". No, JRRT was no Pauline Baynes or Alan Lee, and I don't think that any painting has imagined Middle-earth as gloriously as Peter Jackson's marvellous films , but this book is sure to deepen any Tolkien fan's appreciation of JRRT's idiosyncratic genius.

Another great book, if you like historical fiction you will like Anna's books. She is a great storyteller. I feel like I am repeating myself in my reviews but it's hard to come up with something original when I have read so many now.

I discovered Anna Jacobs a few months ago and actually have only read her books since, I hope she is busy writing more because I have almost read everything she has written (barring the science fiction novels which don't interest me).

Hammerhead Industries Gear Keeper Medium Force / 6oz, 36”, 8-14 Key Retractor RT4-5851 – Features Heavy-Duty Durable Stainless Rotating Belt Clip with Q/C Split Ring Accessory – Made in USA
Pros: Looks good and seems to be well built.
Cons: 1.The belt clip is overly tight and difficult to put on or remove. A nice belt
could easily be damaged by the sharp edges given the excessive grip. I finally gwve up and just thread the belt through the steel belt clip....a hassle.
2. There is no retainer to keep the cord and keys from swinging freely and wildly.
The rated retention was not correct for the number of keys attached so the cord immediately sagged down and swung as noted.
I really would not buy this again.
Lambs & Ivy Little Woodland Forest Animals Musical Mobile, Pink/White
Lambs & Ivy Little Woodland Forest Animals Musical Mobile, Pink/White
Pros: This is an adorable mobile and the music is nice. My baby loves to watch it and fell asleep on her own for the first time tonight while it was going.
I like that it turns off after about 20 minutes. When my baby starts looking sleepy, I turn on the white noise as well an then I dont have to wait around for her to fall asleep to turn this off.

Cons: we’ve only used it (turned on and off) a handful of times and the stop button got stuck so it wouldn’t turn on. I didn’t have a thin screw driver to undo the unit. I had to mess around with the button until finally it released a little bit and the start button could work.

There's Something Wrong with Aunt Diane
There's Something Wrong with Aunt Diane
I am a mother who works full-time. I don't know how Diane was able to accomplish childcare,household chores, doctor appointments,events at work and planning events for others. You would have to be on stimulants not weed to try to accomplish that. I'm not saying that she was an alcoholic but people who don't know much about alcohol/drug addiction would not know the signs to watch for such as hidden bottles of alcohol moved around to different hiding spots. I'm just wondering how could she have been the life and soul of the party all the time and supermom without taking anything? I understand why she was such a perfectionist and had to be in control because of her childhood. But at the same time, it's always the ones who say they don't have problems and/or don't discuss their problems that are the ones who need serious therapy. She had unresolved issues of childhood abandonment, hadn't spoken to her sisters in 10 years or her brothers? She never spoke about her marriage, not even to her best friend, that's not even normal. If she did smoke pot to sleep, how did she even get up for work? Did she sleep 2-3 hours a night? Someone mentioned an aneurysm. If there had been one or a stroke or any other medical condition, it would have shown up on the autopsy and no medical diseases showed up, so stop trying to rule out things that were ruled out and did not exist. Just like the retesting of the blood-same results. I do feel the family got ripped off by that scum-bag private investigator from the deceased' retirement fund money. He never even told the family that the blood had been retested 9 months prior nor did he give them to the family until they had to make numerous follow up phone calls to obtain them and they had paid something like 30k to him?

Raw Unrefined Grade A Soft and Smooth African Shea Butter from Ghana - Amazing quality and consistency - comes in a 32 oz Jar - Total weight approximately 24 oz by HalalEveryday
This is the weirdest tub of Shea butter I have bought. Ever. The texture feels like play doh and when you run it between your hands it crumbles like it too. It doesn’t melt until you’re vigorously applying it, and when you do apply it to the skin, it doesn’t do anything. It just lays on the skin and gives the appearance that it’s being absorbed when really it was wiped off by your clothes or surrounding environment. IT DOESNT ABOSRB WHAT KIND OF BUTTER DOESNT ABSORB. It’s like it’s made of turmeric because This has stained my favourite blanket. If I could give this 0 stars o would.

It’s freezing in New York right now, so the Shea butter should be hard right? Like coconut oil? Nope just feels like freshly opened playdoh.
Apple iPhone 12 (64GB) - Blue
Apple iPhone 12 (64GB) - Blue
 Another beauty from Apple. I was upgraded from iPhone X and it was great experience with all the latest specs and flawlessly smooth. Thanks to all new A14 Bionic chip.
Build quality was great as always from Apple.
Phone feels light on hands due to aluminium body. I chose Blue colour because wanted to go for different colour than routine Black and white iPhones so initially I was bit skeptical but after seeing the phone in person I’m happy with the blue colour “ not bad at all and not too flashy”
Grip and feel perfect. Phone comes with iOS 14.1. Camera quality was excellent and sufficient as a normal user.
If you are from iOS ecosystem nothing will go wrong here.
There is nothing to question about the quality and interface from Apple ( it’s my personal opinion as a long time apple user)
As you all know iPhone 12 won’t comes with earphones and charging brick( adapter)
I bought separately 20w apple adapter from new Apple India online store for Rs.1900
I don’t judge here apple because of accessories removal and the price tag. I hope apple can justify this.
I only hope and wanted to see so badly Made in India IPhones so that we all can enjoy lower priced ( at least a better priced) iPhones in the future.
A big thanks to Appario Retail Pvt. Ltd and Amazon for delivering genuine iPhone as always in perfect condition. Delivered way before the promised date.
Update: (01/12/2020) After testing 25 days especially on battery life of this iPhone 12, results were amazing and I’m completely satisfied with the battery performance. On Moderate gaming, Moderate Video Content, heavy on calls and heavy on browsing this iPhone 12 battery life is sufficient for your regular Day.
My conclusion is definitely a better and improved battery performer than the previous iPhone model.
Thank you Apple India
Thank you Appario Retail Pvt. Ltd.
Thank you Amazon India.
( Note: charger brick was shown in my video was bought myself from Apple India online store because it won’t comes with the phone)

1. Weight of the Phone is very less when compared to any phone in this segment and this matters a lot to me while carrying or casual music listening or any stuff.
2. Back leather type wrapper is really good and gives a premium feel.
3. UI is also good in terms of usage and mobile handling and compatibility
4. Camera is decent for video calls/ normal phots not that great especially for shotting long-distance objects/ sceneries. But this doesn't matter to me a lot. Come on use a professional camera if you want photography at peaks.
5. Design is excellent and it is the slimmest phone at 7.43mm
6. Build Material quality is good.
7. Sound is good but not that great for melodies or any songs please use earphones/headphones.
8. Display is really good and it's out of my expectation as I'm using Samsung AMOLED previously.
9. Processor is fast for general purpose and played COD and some other games at medium graphics didn't observe any lag.
10. Battery is okay and keeps you charged up for one day (General usage with low- medium gaming)
11. Software is fast and no clutter apps or extra apps.
Overall I would definitely recommend if someone wants a nice phone for general usage which looks classy.
