The era when antutu and pubg aren't the parameter for the best phone or how good a phone is
Antennagate not unique to iPhone
just to hide their imperfections you want to say it happens to other devices also so it's fine?
Admire steve jobs
Steve Jobs was such a liar back then
but good part is at least he accepted his mistake
today's apple doesn't even do that
The original iPhone (2G) paved the way for phones to transform from clunky smartphones into simpler, sleek, tools. It wasn't until the late iPhone 3G was it possible to replace the old flagship Nokia N95 and HTC TouchPRO with Apple's offering. And with the iPhone 3GS they had a monopoly on the market, since proper competitors wouldn't arrive until a full year later.
The iPhone 4 launched quite late actually, leaving the iPhone 3GS on the market for almost a full 2-years. And they finally had a Selfie Cam, and a means to do Video Calls. The new phone improved battery life, performance, screen, camera, and everything else. This really was the best phone of 2010, and most of 2011.
It took upto the end of 2011 for Google to do something proper with Android, and many things were unified and modernised under Android 4.0.3 Ice-Cream-Sandwich. And it was Samsung paving the way for the future of both small phones (SGSII) and large phones (NOTE). This was proper competition against the iPhone 4S which introduced AI-Assistants and a more powerful iOS system. Just to illustrate how much of a leap forward both iOS-iPhone and Android-Samsung made during the 2010-2011 transition.... it was enough to leave all competitors behind and wipe out competitors such as Palm, Blackberry, Symbian, MeeGo, and Windows Phone. These guys were releasing competitors against 2010-phones, but were doing it in 2012... they had no chance!
I would say both iOS and Android evolved separately... with one opting for more features then polishing the system thereafter, and the other starting with an optimised system and gradually adding more features. I would say they achieved parity from the user's perspective back with iOS v7 and Android v5, and with devices like the iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Note4-Exynos. Things have been a little more equal since, comparing the likes of iOS v12 and Android v8, as well as, iPhone (X, XS, 11 Pro) to the likes of the Samsung (S8+, S9+, and S10+) devices.
