Love the Community, 18 Jul 2019Finally, Apple is catching up. I'm still waiting for the iPhone ... moreApple shall increase the iPhone front camera megapixel by now. China branded phones are already go beyond 20MP+, new model stick to 32MP

Please check the Bionic benchmark tests here: https://browser.geekbench.com/ios-benchmarks.

Compare to Android: https://browser.geekbench.com/android-benchmarks­­

Hmm, odd - Apple's Bionic chipsets absolutely smashes the best in Samsung Exynos. How droll.

And shut the fck up, you mindless drone.

King Jay Kay, 18 Jul 2019First time in the industry a revolutionary ToF (Time of Fooling)... moreAdded secondary camera for portraits that's all for 7 plus

What are you talking about? Iphone 7 plus easily outperforms 6/6s plus in every type of task. I know from first hand experience as it has more ram than predecessors and faster processor. It still plays all big games at 60fps on max settings. Most android phones can't even do that including newer android phones . Iphone also excels in photo and video editing. It's much more than a jewelery item.

Yes there are minor upgrades year on year and I agree not much difference from 7 plus and 8 plus. Similar can be said with android devices such as samsung s8,s9 and s10. All minor upgrades. I'm sure other brands don't have too much differences each year too.

First time in the industry a revolutionary ToF (Time of Fooling) camera in iPhone and our camera team worked extremely hard to give our customers the satisfaction and no compromise experience which they get with iPhone

iPhone is kind of leader just because of one thing and that is the support to their mobile users even after 5 years and that is because they don't even add any kind of true change or evolution to their hardware

What they had done since iPhone 6, increased the size and called it 6 plus

Added secondary camera for portraits that's all for 7 plus

8 and 8 plus were actually supposed to be 7s and 7s plus but they just named it higher

iPhone X was a good design and departure from ordinary Bar iPhones but what was different in real life Face I'd that's it and they added literally three to four swipe gustures in basic and now they call it revolution by their software department

And now they it will be consecutive third year and what is new this year a wide angle camera that's it

If you talk about interanls so every SOC is getting more powerful and power efficient with every iteration

What I hate about apple and iPhones that they are just an overly price piece of jewelry that's all

Like seriously a mobile.phone for 1500 USD one can buy a car with kind of money

And due to apple every OEM got their chance to increase price for their products

Apple is joke to tech world and its innovation died with Steve Jobs but it was his legacy that brought apple here but now things are getting harder for them and eventually they will loose what he created

Like 9 billion USD drop in share price due to resignation of an employee, it explains a lot
