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.

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.iOS will always be superior as Apple get to design both hardware and software to ensure they get the best solution.

Base Android's is excellent, spoiled by some overly skinned flavours out there.
I just can't quite match what you have said to my current experience of Samsung Note 10 Plus 5G. No issues whats ok ever. Very smooth and fast. I have mot had one freezing, sluggishness, so I would suggest a more balanced comment.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!
I thought that too, until I see al these comments about the google pixel 3 starting to freeze/stutter after a few months usage, and apps in the background restarting once you go back to them, even when youve only got 2/3 open. Put me right off!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.

Indeed.Balanced like ‘aimed at my 8 year old daughter’
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.
yeah fantastic cameras, but again there’s another problem, how long will Huawei provide software updates for it? That’s my other issue with none iOS phones! At least we have software updates for a good 4-5 years, and at the exact time that people with new iPhones get them.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.
Really? I'm glad you're happy with your new phone but that's a bit of a stretch. Benchmarks are pretty meaningless now for phones. All that matters is how quick if feels to use.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.
Well you clearly do care who makes that handset as you've made it very clear in this thread you prefer apple. And that's fine, my partner does too, as do many of my friends.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.
I get you, we all want the latest and greatest. The 11 series do come with Gigabit class LTE, no network updates are required for that. So in practical terms you do get useable increased data speeds today. And no additional network charges for it either.I'm an apple man to the core - pun intended - but the elephant in the room for me with this model is the lack of 5G - not because I have 5G available where I live at the moment, I dont as I imagine a lot of us dont. But, this shouldn't be too far away, 12 - 24 months? Would that not kill the resale value on this pre-5G model? I'm still ticking along with a 6s - would love an upgrade and been waiting until the killer feature arrives but still waiting...
Just a thought...
