You've got your 'usual Apple' all wrong. As usually they have average cameras and excellent displays. And their OLED panels are sourced from Samsung at great expense. The 11 is significant as it finally has a camera system that matches or surpasses anything else. And the display is once again rated as the best you can get. Until the next Samsung, and so on.The rest looks like the usual apple. Impressive, fast and a great camera. Average screen.

iOS will always be superior as Apple get to design both hardware and software to ensure they get the best solution.
Try Android on a Google Pixel device, no bloatware, no dodgy skinning of the base operating system. It's a joy to use, if joy can be applied to tapping away on a phone.
Base Android's is excellent, spoiled by some overly skinned flavours out there.
Yes, which blows android into the weeds in my experience. Android is a clunky mess. I have to use it on my Sony TV and it’s shocking!
Should I ever rid myself of the Apple disease I think that’s where I’ll be heading.
Except for laptops naturally; I’d never touch windows again.

I’m sure as an android user it feels fast but if you read any objective reviews online the gap between android and iOS appears to be widening. Which is no surprise as Samsung just don’t have the low level access to android to optimise the OS for their hardware in the same way Apple do. So they have both slower cpu and gpu, as well as less optimised code you run on it.
However, my issue isn’t with android performance per se, I just find it clunky to use. It’s just a personal preference like windows and MacOS. Each to their own.
The beauty of iOS and even more so now with iPadOS Is they are perfectly tailored to the needs of the device. No superfluous options or bloat.
I almost went with a Huawei P30 Pro for the camera but just couldn’t get past Android. Trump might have done them a massive favour by forcing them to develop their own alternative mobile OS.
With this generation Apple have left Samsung more than a generation behind. In any benchmark you Care to use the latest Samsung can’t even match the iPhone 10.
It’s not ‘daft’ it’s just a fact - so rather than subjective waffle, look at the available objective data and you’ll see just how behind Samsung are in CPU and GPU performance. As Samsung’s current best phone lags the iPhone XS, then that is a generational gap is it not?
As to meaningless, well no, not really. Phones are increasingly using ML, particularly for image processing and AR, and this is incredibly computationally demanding - hence the new way Apple are using ‘big/little’ multi-core designs to balance performance per watt against outright performance and offloading to ML specific units.
I personally don’t care about who makes my handset, I just buy the best of each generation. For a while Samsung hardware was ahead but in the latest 18 months they’ve fallen well behind.
