I've owned plenty of phones and the larger cells in Android phones can't keep up to the growing feature sets. To be fair, neither can the iPhones. I'm using the iPhone 12 Pro right now and it's similar to the Note 20 Ultra I had a little while ago.
So yeah, Android phones can pack large batteries, that's cool, but they need to be optimized better.

I think Apple's iPhone 12 series is overrated. Check the Xiaomi Mi 10 T pro specs.

This being called big is ridiculous. That's my point. You sheep really do live in your own ignorant world

You're asserting that my opinion is biased and influenced upon other peoples' - then I'm giving exactly the same argument back to you.

And you still don't seem to understand what the actual problem with that whole Batterygate fiasco was. Hint: It was not the throttling itself.

Pro Apple sites and blogs were in full swing trying to wash the image of Apple after this scandal. Pretty sure you got your opinions on batterygate from those places.

Apple did their marketing by claiming it is Sapphire technically implying it is more scratch resistant compared to regular glass (which it wasn't).

maybe it is a "Sapphire glass", its just the low substandard grade sapphire glass unlike the standard sapphire glass in the premium watches and the like.

Jerry were like, this still somewhat scratch at grade 6~7 while real sapphire like the one on my watch scratch at grade 9
