LG: The battery life on the Mini is not great either. And then again, we’re not really going anywhere these days.

LN: Cannot emphasize enough how poor the battery life on the iPhone 6S is. This was a known issue at the time. Even I replaced the battery, but it really does not get better as the operating systems get more processor-intensive.

LG: That’s right. And the processors themselves have been upgraded quite a bit since the iPhone 6. The chemistry, of course, of lithium-ion batteries hasn’t changed much from generation to generation or at all, but the processors become more efficient and can utilize the power source better. So yeah, we might have to bring you up to, and like I said, I’m pretty happy with my iPhone 11, which at this point will be a couple of years old, but some folks really like the iPhone 12. I’m sure we’re going to see some upgrades with the iPhone 13. I tend to be of the thought that like you really don’t need the Pro or the Max phones, unless you are looking for the absolute top-of-the-line camera. You care about things like, I don’t know, having like lidar in your phone and the new ones are rumored to have like 1 terabyte of storage, which will be available in the advanced models, or if you just really want like a big fat phone. I don’t think most people need that. So Lily, you might be good with, like, I don’t know. We’ll see what the iPhone 13 brings. Maybe the iPhone 12.

LN: Yeah. I’ll be watching, because on the flip side, when you keep phones as long as I do, I typically like to get the newest thing, because most of the life of the phone, it’ll be very old. So if I start old, then I’m already behind in the phone’s long journey with me. So just trying to set everybody up for success here.

LG: Excellent point.

MC: I will say that I admire you for keeping your iPhone 6 for as long as you have, because I thoroughly believe that people should wear things out instead of breaking things in. So kudos to you for that. And when you get a new phone, yes, not having a headphone jack sucks, but you’re going to love the camera, and you’re going to love wireless charging.

LN: Well, if you have me back on the show sometime, I’ll let you know how it’s going.

LG: Yes. I was like, “Lily, are you free in early September for a review with the new iPhone?” We might be tapping you for that. Mike, what’s your recommendation this week?

MC: I’m going to recommend an old television show. It’s not that old. It started about 10 years ago. It’s called Justified. It’s six seasons long. It is a cops-and-robbers show starring Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins. It takes place in Harlan County, Kentucky. And it’s about a US marshal who is competing with various criminal operations. Most of them are involved with his childhood friend, who is now his enemy. So it’s like sort of this six-season-long face-off between good and bad, and the lines get blurry, of course. And the acting is fun and interesting.
