    Apple products/apps are "better" because they use last year's (often time's more than last year's) cutting-edge R&D development from google or android and integrate it into an old ecosystem a year later to appear relevant. When Steve Jobs was still around, I'd argue that it was the other way, which goes to show how far Apple has fallen behind. From outpacing the industry when Jobs first announced the iPhone, to leading the industry in Jobs' twilight years, to matching the industry after Jobs passed, and finally to falling behind the industry in recent years after multiple years without Jobs or any innovative designer to replace Jobs.

    Google and Android no longer announce improvements that they made to "last year's cutting edge development that Apple has just integrated into their system this year" because they already have the next cutting edge R&D development of "this year." Both Apple and Google/Android follow up and make improvements on "Google and Android's cutting edge developments from last year" but only Apple announces it because they need it for marketing. Otherwise, Apple would have nothing to show for their "new phone" that is always at least one whole generation behind industry standards. This ties into the reason why an Apple phone can almost feel the same from generation to generation with only minor updates and improvements.

    This creates a logical fallacy where Apple is trying to compare "the cutting edge R&D development that Google or Android produced last year" with "their integrated and improved (sometimes not even improved) version this year of said cutting edge R&D development that Google or Android produced last year."
    A logical comparison would be "Google/Androids improved version of last year's cutting edge technology" vs "Apple's newly integrated version of last year's cutting edge technology" (a point to note is that Apple almost never creates cutting edge technology anymore, so it goes to say that they are at a clear disadvantage since they are behind in learning, adapting and attempting to improve said technology). This comparison would require the customer to look into Google/Android's improvements to last year's cutting edge R&D development, which most people simply do not do allowing Apple to use this marketing tactic to fool customers into believing they have a better product. Usually, Apple, in reality, just actually has made a slightly below or roughly similar improvement to their Google/Android counterparts. In order to stay relevant, they make their improvements feel better in an unconnected Apple ecosystem and has close to zero connectivity with the general world's ecosystem (it is then the end user's responsibility to connect Apple's ecosystem with the rest of the world; a surprisingly lucrative aftermarket for Apple).
    Or we could also make a logical comparison if we were comparing "this year's Google/Androids cutting edge R&D development" vs "this year's Apples cutting edge R&D development." Hopefully, this sheds some light on how far Apple is behind in the competition since the majority of the cutting-edge R&D developments are all created by Google/Android. Thus comparing using this second method gives an edge to Google/Android that really Apple's ecosystem no longer can cover. This gives the perspective that R&D on the Google/Android side often times are a half year or more ahead of the Apple side.

    Essentially, Apple users do not get to use new industry cutting-edge features and are otherwise just using a phone that matches or is below industry standards in last year's cutting-edge features. While enjoying a better personal ecosystem (better now but unsure how long that will last) provided by Apple (with a steep price tag), said Apple users will also have to deal with a more cumbersome integration to the world's ecosystem all by themselves (that integration is less painful in the US due to Apple enjoying a very sheltered market almost without competition in the US).

    $1,000 phone that is so limited to what it can do ... That's why I have never liked iphones ... They just now got a better display, small battery, no power share, can't even do landscape mode, can't close out all the running apps at once, no split screen multi tasking, has that big ole ugly notch, and all that's just to name a few that the iPhone can't do it's definitely not a up to date phone my opinion and especially not worth a 1,000 dollars

    I really appreciate a comprehensive review going into detail of features, and your usually thoughtful comments and observations. Although long, it did not seem like it was 48 minutes. I think the way you speak part of it. You do it in a very conversational way, and not some unnatural metered delivery that some of the other big tech reviewers do, that makes you easy to listen to.
    And yes, do more of these. Cherry pick which products. When we are about to drop thousands of dollars, getting a detailed and honest review after using the product for five months gives the viewer confidence in what you have to tell us.

    I like many things about the iphone and android. Would love to see something combining the strengths of the 2.
    On the plus side aside from the apple services, with android being so customizable its the closest thing were ever going to get.
    I go back and forth on the two. Always have the latest iphone, Galaxy S ultra series and Pixel. i know not everyone can do this but it's great if you can.
    Right now i'm using the s21 ultra. Very nice phone. Just waiting for the pixel 6 and iphone 13 release. Every 4 months i change phones to the next one on my short list.

    I just want to talk about refresh rate. Like I notice when I switch from 60 to 120Hz but when I use higher refresh rate for a longer period of time my eyes get used to it and the feeling of "smoothness" seems to disappear. I get that you get more "fps" and less ms but in terms of everyday use higher refresh rates seems to be just a flex.

    The more you pay for a smartphone, the less you get, with expensive phones, you don't get a headphone jack, you don't get a charge brick, you don't get a free case in the box etc, if you buy a cheap phone, say a xiaomi, you get a charge brick, you get a headphone jack, you get a big battery that can fastcharge, i think its insane how some cheap phones comes with features the more expensive phones lack, 10 years ago, it was the opposite, you pay less, you get less, i don't care about chamfered edges and "the best iphone we have ever made" (yeah, try to sell an iphone that is WORSE than the previous one, i don't think you will sell a lot of those apple) while i pay a 1000 bucks and don't even get a freakin' charger in the box, because the lightning to usb cable is now a lightning to usb c one and i have to throw away all my old bricks, no thank you, i am slowly moving away from apple, just got a redmi 9t and i am very happy with that phone, i can even change the tv channels with my redmi which is just awesome, that feature alone made me smile man, the redmi has a huge 6000mAh battery that lasts me around 3 days, which is, once again, very impressive for a phone that costs 1/8th of the 12 pro . . .
