iOS compression is only good for low demanding users. It's easy with limited hardware to have optimised OS. Android is universal & scaleable to Chrome OS.

FREE KASHMIR, 03 Sep 2019Doesn't that kill your battery quickly?It doesn't. The power used by keeping apps in RAM is negligible. It's not the same as apps running in background.

Ishthiyaq, 02 Sep 2019Yes, i am using Exynos 8895 (10 nm) right now.I have a Note9. In my region, they sell the Exynos 9810 version, but I got the SD845 version instead. It's 4 months old, and still performs really fast, specially after Android 9 update.

Apple is the only company making products for iOS, therefore, they can optimise it. Anyways, manufacturers never fully optimise their phones for performance and battery life. You have to do it yourself, e.g. remove bloatware, turn off app updates and much more, basically altering all the settings.

Speed tests only matter if iPhone is winning. Otherwise, it´s useless and unimportant.

Stupid. if do it right then wait for later this month to compare with iphone 11. This is a new phone compared with an almost 1 year old phone

Ishthiyaq, 02 Sep 2019Yes, i am using Exynos 8895 (10 nm) right now.I can confirm every Exynos version will make your phone lag on long term usage. Kirin processor are a lot better. Considering my country only supplied Exynos version for its Samsung, its not worth to talk about it, let alone buy it.

What i want to convey is, that this lack in performance occurs only with android devices and not in iOS.
I've had iphone6s, 7 and now iPhone x, But never faced performance issue.

I have many reasons to switch to NEX3 but speed is not a major factor. The in-built device optimizer seems to keep misbehaving apps (waking themselves up needlessly or hogging RAM) in check and the device is not significantly slower from the how it was almost 2 years ago.
