Not only does the update modernize the OS and security of all these iPhones but it increases the performance of these old phones. That's why there's people running around with 6 year old iphones with the latest iOS version - they're still viable and fast enough by today's standards.

Has Google done that? Android is so fragmented, it requires each manufacturer to release an update individually for each phone model. Long term device support is almost non existent. They have no incentive to go and rewrite their OS so old phones can run faster. They'd rather you go and buy a new phone.

Yea one part I will agree with is that if you get a middle of the road Android you have to basically hope and pray they will make an update for your specific model sooner than later. But in my experience, as long as you don't have a very outdated model, or the cheapest option out there, you'll get the updates eventually. And more importantly, i've never had a major issue on an Android that I need an update THAT bad. It was more just the cool factor.

You are the very definition of "iSheep", LOL

You have absolutely NO CLUE what you are talking about. You also have the exact mentality that Apple feeds off of.

Who do you think makes the screens for iPhones! No clue on battery life issue either lol, clearly you are commenting on a subject you did zero reading on.

Here you go, i took the liberty of pulling one article on it for you, it took about 5 seconds: https://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonk.../#a82662f3e1ac

Back to the first point, here's an exerpt from this very article for you, just to show how EVERYWHERE these 2 particular points are:
You’re wrong, sorry. The iPhone XS Max was tested as best ever. PPI is meaningless after a certain resolution, namely after 326PPI. Contrast, color accuracy, brightness, etc are far more important than pure pixel density, but try to keep up.

https://www.tomsguide.com/us/iphone-...ews-28161.html

Ultimately, DisplayMate awarded the iPhone XS Max's screen a score of A+ and said that it's the best smartphone display on the market. Better yet for Apple, its display performed "considerably better" than any other competing device, including Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 and last year's iPhone X.

Before you just dismiss DisplayMate as meaningless, remember the numbers are objective and measurable.. Don’t just tell me to “look at Android screens” and I’ll see iPhone screens are clearly behind.”

Everyone knows Samsung and now LG make Apple displays. Apple is too smart to be in such a terrible, capital intensive business like hardware manufacturing. They use suppliers for most of the components, but the key is Apple designs and demands high tolerances on those parts. They calibrate displays and spec out each component to their standards. That why it’s so funny the Apple designed Samsung display is better than the Samsung designed Samsung display!

Apple makes the most color accurate displays, period.

You based your entire battery life argument on a video from PhoneBuff, whose channel I’m subscribed to, so I’ve already seen the video...before you even referenced it.

It’s one test from a YouTuber in an unrealistic scenario. That doesn’t consider idle time, like you’d have in a normal day. iOS isn’t optimizing battery for these stupid scenarios, but it does for a normal day. Just doing continuous tasks until the battery is drained is totally pointless. Who cares?

Your sources are horrible.

But if you like PhoneBuff so much, did you see the iPhone crush the competition in his speed test?

iPhones contain THE best mobile silicon in the industry with the first 7nm chips, Apple is crushing the competition in software (as usual) and now hardware too. Before you say mobile processing power doesn’t matter, it’s what makes 4 year old iPhones still work well and hold their value. It’s also going to be the future of mobile computing so the advancements Apple has made will give them an advantage when smartphones need to process the environment for AR.

I own thousands of Apple shares, so I have to understand the industry. I know every single point you could possible make against Apple, like your weak battery argument.

In the end, none of that matters. Apple is crushing Android because they have the ecosystem, security, support, design, hardware and SWAG that is the envy of the smartphone world. People don’t care about 8GB of RAM. They want their phone to work well, be easy to use, take great pictures, be fast, and look cool. iPhone has the whole package.

Good stuff. I hate all of them equally especially when you have to manage both of them through some type of mobile device solution. Worldwide sales Androids is ahead of iOS.

Well considering one phone and one brand is Ios and virtually hundreds of phones and numerous manufacturers are Android (even ones that are $90), i'd say that's a fair assumption.

That's only because most Android phones in the market are under $200, where Apple doesnt compete. Apple makes over 85% of the profits in the industry because they own the high end market.

Apple sold 220M iPhone in the last year. No single Android phone model even comes close, including Galaxy S models, Notes, Pixels, LG, OnePlus, etc.

Ewan Spence has always been an Apple hater. He's lazy and takes one source without verifying it or thinking critically and runs with it. That's exactly what he did in his battery statements.

I've even had to email him for inaccuracies in his writing about Apple. There is a mistake in the article you just posted from him too.

as much as i wanted to keep using my 7 until it blew up, the screen cracked after a drop and the comms module is fried so i have a brick instead of a phone.

im honestly on the edge; idk if i want to get another 7 to save some money, but they don't sell jet black anymore, if i should "upgrade" and get a 8 or get a used X and call it a day or just get a 256gb Xs. Xr seemed like a good proposition but at the size of the plus phones it's out of the question i think its too big

I really just completed testing on the Xs Max for work and have to say it’s a worthy upgrade over the 6/7/8+ series. Those three devices are largely the same....yes one is slightly faster etc than the next but essentially the same form factor, OS and if you didn’t tell a typical person which one they were holding they wouldn’t know save for wireless charging on the 8+.

FaceID is so fast that most times was left to wonder if it was actually checking for my face. It was almost as if there was no lock screen. The entire authentication process is very fast, much faster than TouchID. And the screen is noticeably bigger and more colorful too. Can’t speak for photos and iOS12 is essentially the same across the board. I can’t say I’d pay $999 but we get them for $699 through Verizon.

I have a lot of heavy usage on Fridays. So much so that I got a mophie case for my 8+, but am seeing that I still have 50+% at the end of the work day with the Xs vs needing to use low power mode on the 8+ if I didn’t have the case battery.

What’s also very nice is that the Xs Max is just slightly smaller, I mean by millimeters, but the screen is larger since the bezel is thin due to not being needed for TouchID. I also noticed that the sides seem to be grippy despite being black chrome. Not sure what the material is but I always had the issue with the older phones being too slippery and requiring a case I didn’t want to use.

I voted XS MAX. I do miss the bigger screen fro my old 6 Plus when I upgraded to the X. My X is still in immaculate shape though, so I might sell it and just go out of pocket a couple hundred for the XS MAX.
