It's clear you have some weird unhealthy obsession with Apple products.
Good luck!

Android Authority, 01 Dec 2020I don't care if they are the most valuable company or ... moreFor defensive people like you...

- You compare different market areas (and prices).
- Remember thinking 64bit processors were a stupid transition? Guess you forgot that 5s.
- Small batteries? I mean sure... but how about we compare the battery life tho?
- Why do you add up all the features from 100 Android phones and compare them to one iPhone? That's not how reality works mate...
- Getting features late? Yea... quite a few... but when implemented it's done well. That's not to say though that there are things missing.
- Ever messaged or called right from your laptop or tablet... or watch? Or you only think of phones and that's it? Btw, u can do some of that from some XPS's, but I guess you'll be adding the specs of an MSI to that to make your point... sad.
- 4K 120fps and 8K? Have you seen how that recording looks like? The processor can't keep up and you get some very unpleasant artifacts when something moves in the frame... I guess you the best way to take an 8K video on a phone now is to just take a picture and use 4K.
- You are finally happy you get 3yr software updates? Awwww...
- FaceID on Android phones? I think you mean facial recognition... aka in daylight... or maybe iris scanning or fingerprint. Actually forget the later -it was introduced by Apple so it can't exist-.
- Yeah the design doesn't change every year, cause only now Androids start to have equal bottom chins, though that ear piece could be moved higher and make the notch smaller... but I'm not an engineer to say that for sure.
- Also... cool features on Android, no shit... but I'm a student who uses Notability (switched from GoodNotes5) and on Android there was zilch on that level (I tried OneNote... trust me... I tried to like it...) not even to mention on Win10.
- Airdrop?
- Flunk lightning... I'll give u that... but that was introduced in a micro-sub era... back then it was the bomb. And now they are preparing to get rid of the port, so cut them some slack... IOS is made around not needing to transfer files like that, but the charging situation is bad. But don't complain about iPhone users not getting a charger... cause you were probably doing the same when the jack was removed and now look at you.
- And I'll give you the good 'ol treatment of the ecosystem: student - has all the files on every device, sends them from one-another instantly, has all the apps (in the first place and) everywhere aaand personally I like the UI better overall (on this, I hope you understand what respecting one's personal opinion means, though from you other messages, I doubt that).

Yes, there are things on Android that I wish I had, but none of them are a must, unlike most on the iPhone, iPad and Mac (ever tried to study astronomy on a Mac/Linux... it's damn nice). So yeah... sum up all the Android phones and you'll get a good argument, but cmmon you can't believe people still fall for that.

Why so much hate? Some people's need are better met by IOS and some other's by Android. Neither of them are perfect and neither try to achieve the same "perfection" in the same direction.

Btw have any idea how much I could flame about stuff like locking your phone by using a new wallpaper (I think you remember that nice "sunset in the mountains" one from early this year) or many other things... but they are pity arguments.

So... for you next hateful (like your disgusting by its nature, not the side it takes, profile picture of the Android taking a wee on Apple) and pitiful arguments, how about quitting this tribal behavior and show some love and interest for this community, mate? Cmmon I hope I'll see that brighter side of yours in your next comments.

Most consumers don't give a damn. We want better products.
The money ain't going in our pockets.
Android manufacturers despite being less rich compared to Apple are dishing out better products.

East India Trading company had value of Alphabet, Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon combined and doubled and you will still come short.
It was so big it had a private army of 250 000 men strong.
Just so you know.

Wily2020, 28 Nov 2020"Almost all choose iPhone? Really? Where?? It's ... moreNobody cares about sales. No one is getting screwed with Android due to lack of updates.
Updates on Android are way ahead of iOS which is playing catchup in every area.
People prefer Android as confirmed by the sales, End of Story.
Don't bother me with your irrational Apple ass-Kissing!

It's the other way around.
Here in Europe, We prefer Android. 75% of the population prefer Android."

I clearly said high-end phones. When people want something better most of them prefer iPhone. There's no other high end phones in top selling smartphone lists worlwide than iPhones. It just shows majority Android sales are happening in low end and very few buy high-end Android phones. It's not really surprising because Android OEMs screw their users over and over again by not giving updates for their phones.

But it's a fact that it's a bad business for Android companies if you keep your phone long time, because they dont get any more money from you like what Apple does with their own ecosystem. They win if users keep their phones longer and they also win if users upgrade. So that's the reason why Android OEMs don't give long os support and it looks like customers have had enough with it.

Nobody cares about price these days.
Even 300 Euro Android devices are offering more than iPhone top Model.
Why should they bother with Apple?

Anonymous, 27 Nov 2020-Outdated design with ugly notch and ugly gas burner design... moreUmmm....
Can you name one phone that does it all better than the iPhone?
Sure it doesn't have an amazing battery.
But it still has battery life competitive with those of twice the capacity from Android.
Sure it doesn't have seamless connectivity with non apple devices.
But is there a phone that connects with EVERYTHING?
(pls let me know if there is).
It sure doesn't have dual SIM 5g.
But it still has the best 5g connectivity..
And also, it seems you are a bit of a noob and a salty guy when it comes to apple products.
Slowing the phone down through OS updates is for battery life.

It may not do anything you say it doesnt
But it does it better than any other phone
Andd also, name a phone which ticks all your lists

They sell the good phones and all the Android OEMs each other are fighting for leftovers without making hardly any money because no-one want to buy their high-end phones anymore. :D sametime Apple is having record sales, quite shows were we are. People buy Android because they can't afford iPhone and those who want to something better almost all choose iPhone.
