So I had a brand new iPhone X that I never got around to use, and now I gave it to a pretty girl I know. Since this X is new and has no battery degradation its nice to compare it to the Xs, and both these has 256GB so assume the storage is working very similar too.
it really looks like her X has better battery than my Xs, she's an avid mobile gamer and coming from a Samsung its needless to say that the X has many times the gaming performance, but surprising that the X seem to extend the battery life over the Xs.
In real life usage like this the X is still the 4th fastest phone in the world, beaten only by Xs, XsMax an Xr, we knew that already, but that the X has all this performance at a lower battery drain isn't as well known.
CPU/GPU power can go both ways on the battery, like the iPhone 5s that was the first 64bit and at its time by far the fastest CPU, it did it on cost of the battery, while SE had twice as much raw speed and never heated and barely drained the battery at all compared to 5s. I think the newest Apple chipset is a half-good middle model, I repeat my advice to buy used X over Xr and maybe even over Xs if money is a big issue, competition is 18 months behind so X will remain the 4th fastest phone on the market. And soon its time to start thinking of iPhone 11 anyway, Apples speed advantage will grow to 24 months ahead of the competition.

Again people are angry because they cannot use pirated software. Stick to the legal side of things please, real legal reasons why iOS is making problems for your important computing tasks.

Why would you compare the iPhones using GFXBench vs the Androids on GFXBench?
iOS GFXBench uses Metal, a low level API while GFXBench for Android uses OpenGL. Obviously Metal will win no contest, that is an unfair comparison. Far better to use a Vulkan vs Metal benchmark like 3DMark, in which case the Android phones tend to leave Apple in the dust

I upgraded to the XS from the 6S Plus and am extremely disappointed. I would go back to my old phone if it had more storage.
When I watch videos in landscape mode, itÂ’s very difficult to bring up the play/pause UI. No matter how many times I tap the screen, nothing happens. I have to flip the phone to portrait, tap the screen to pull up the UI, and then flip it back to landscape if I want to resume watching the video.
Face ID is one of the most frustrating features. I would trade it for Touch ID in a heartbeat. It works intermittently and fails more times than not.
About 1 out of 10 phone calls will be lost. IÂ’ll be on the phone and then all of a sudden the call will end. I have pinpointed my phone as the problem as IÂ’ve read similar feedback from other users.
The camera is very disappointing in the dark. The pictures turn out very blurry. It also seems a strange filter is placed on all my photos.
Lastly, the most basic tasks have become cumbersome to complete. This phone isnÂ’t fun to use but rather just leaves me frustrated. I would highly discourage anyone from buying this phone
I have iPhone Xs for over a month with aggressive use :-
-The Battery is better than the previous model I have used for a year (iPhone 7 ) I only charge it while I am sleeping using the wireless charger.
- The camera is fantastic and the beauty mode in selfie is not weird as I found on Samsung or Huawei.
- The phone is really fast comparing with other old models.
it need fast internet connection to be as productive as you want to be.
iPhone Xs is complete crap. its battery life is terribly dissapointing. I sorely regret purchasing this BS device. This is the first iPhone ive ever bought, performance is great and UI is nice and fluid. But I do not see the appeal. I mean seriously it does not even have a manageable file system. Android is much more flexible, especially with rooted devices. IDC if youÂ’re a billionaire, if anyone buys this phone they are completely ignorant to the better android phones out there. This phone is just not worth the price! Buy a Huawei Mate 20 pro, google pixel 3 or samsung s9/note 9 please. Anyone considering buying this phone, dont! It will dissapoint you. Apple doesnt even have the decency to include a fast charger on a $1000 phone. Once again idc if you can Â“affordÂ” it, buy a flagship android instead, youÂ’ll be amazed by the extra features!
Ken, 01 Jan 2019Crazy. Comparison a human to a phone. indeed.. but who is making such comparison?

cynicalistic, 28 Dec 2018apply fans are dominated and obsessed in the name and they use apple products for gaming only.... moreSince I can afford to have them all, and you cannot, I can safely say that windows and android are bad. And don't get me started on windows, I'm got so many certifications in Microsoft products that theres nothing you can say about them that I don't know much better than you, seen from a professional users point of view, not updating ATI drivers or whatever it is you are using windows for. I know how to use it but I don't need it at home, theres Debian and MacOS for that, not that I expect you to understand why since you never used any of them.
Just use them all, like some of us did, your talk is cheap and our real worldexperience is priceless. Dont hate on the one system that you didn't use and don't expect me to not buy apple products just because some of you cannot afford them, I think they are great value for the money and trees no doubt that iPhones with their excellent second hand value are cheapest to own, so the price is low if anything, its just to high entry point for some people but once you entered you're actually saving money on phones. The problem here has been that when we buy new Apple the old ones are still so good that we don't sell them, so we ended up with too many iphones and MacBooks/Macs, but at least all are being used. Cant say the same for Android and windows devices we have, dust collectors only, and even for that they aren't very impressive.
