The dynamic island is pretty meh. Thought it was a gimmick when it’s released, more so now that I have one. Still don’t understand why they went this route. It protrudes into your content even more. (Yes live activities are nice but notification does almost the same thing)

However I’d say you’ll miss the pro-motion screen and the cameras more than the dynamic island.

The original AirPods were okay in terms of sound quality, but the 2nd gen really made some improvements in that department as well as other quality of life improvements.

  1. Sound is much more pleasing and less vanilla. More sub bass, better separation, and clearer vocal.
  2. Noise cancellation is better at reducing sounds that aren’t just constant rumbles.
  3. Adaptive transparency works.
  4. Automatic switching and connecting is much quicker and more reliable.
  5. Integrated U1 chip and speaker in the case so you can find it easier.
  6. Battery life is incredible. I usually get around 6 hrs with ANC/transparency, which means they can stay on from the moment I leave the house through taxi, airport, plane, and all the way until I check into the hotel.

HOWEVER, YMMV when it comes to all the subjective experiences. In terms of call quality, I just don’t know. You can hear people super well yes, but the microphone is nothing special.

No. If anything it should make your phone less slow (once you’re past the initial data migration point at least) by relocating photos and files that are taking up space in your internal storage to the cloud.
