Isn't your goal to justify ALL the 'features' present in current iphones? (Throttling, short battery usage, impossible to repair unless you pay 500$ upwards' to Apple 'certified' service centre, etc)

Not even Apple would dare to set the video bitrate of their 'greatest' flagship @600mbps.
Are u that illiterate that doing that would fill all the storage in no time, while there's no way sheeps could extend their storage

Most smartphones that are made in China (though not all) have higher SAR values compared to non-China-made smartphones. Samsung phones are not made in China and are known to have the lowest radiation.

If you knew, you would not praise them.

Do you want crap 8K like the one provided by Samsung, LG and xiaomi?
Decent 8K needs to be at least 600Mbps, not 80-100 like cellphones.

Who plays hardcore games on a phone?

You're gonna be playing among us, minecraft, clash of clans that all can be run on a 5 year old device.

You gotta realize that geekbench calculates CPU precisely, so there is no "scam" here. iPhones run the fastest in app loading times(which use CPU the most).

Unlike antutu which mashes together tests without testing other important factors to be accurate enough. They try to mash together some gaming with some app opening without accounting web browsing, html5 tests, etc, making it even worse than geekbench in that it can't tell anything. The reason they don't include these tests is because the testing would take too long.

Now fandroids will cry here.....now as per gsmarena reviews a14 has a performance stability of 90 percent and they said it's the fastest smartphone on the planet...it can play call of duty for 9 and half hours...see the performance section in the review

Anonymous, 04 Nov 2020What's new? It's the same old camera system. ... morewho uses 960fps slow mo?

It's literally a feature that you use once, then never again.

It's widely regarded that iPhone is the best at video in the tech community cause it ain't need no gimmicks.

Plus, it's got even better with dolby vision(which is a lot less of a gimmick than audio zoom that sometimes-works and 960fps that you're never gonna use).

Anonymous, 04 Nov 2020As usual garbage battery life despite 60hz screen. Garbage? You sure? TechNick done a battery test life and the iPhones battery life equalled the OP 8T. Only ROG Phone 3 aced the test with a large amount of battery remaining.

What is the excuse for not giving 4k120fps?

Worst is the dolby vision gimmick that every reviewer has told to turn off.
It's the worse for editing. Taking long hours to edit.
Even Apple's final cut pro doesn't support it.

I am not a guy who upgrade mobile phones every year, but happy that my iPhone 11 Pro Max is still better. But the one to compare 11 Pro Max is 12 Pro Max which looks a bit promising with true camera upgrades. Waiting eagerly for 12 Pro Max's review.
@GSM Arena: Also could you please test the 1:1, 16:9 options in camera? Looks like the details are going down with 16:9 compared to 4:3 which I do not like much. Ultra wide + 16:9 and telephoto + 16:9 are horrible.

If they can get away with same sensor as last year, they will.
If they can get away with sticking to pedestrian 60hz, they will.
If they can get away with no charger inside the box, they will.
If they can get away with lack of dedicated cooling, they will.

Finally they increased RAM to 6gb after several tests exposed them to be reloading apps and games all the time on previous iPhones.

Even worse than the 12?
