Sanitisers whose active ingredient is alcohol-based, e.g., propan-1-ol, require to be at least 70% to be effective at disrupting the cell membrane of bacteria and the fatty outer layer of virii and bacteria. Anything less than 70% reduces the efficacy of the product (spray/wipe), resulting in a false sense of protection against potentially pathogenic microbes that shall remain on the device (and in the case of bacteria, multiply).
Quote, "I had to apply new oleophobic coating to my phone because I had used a pretty aggressive sanitizer every day for a year."
Sorry to hear that. I can recommend two things.
(1) Ensure your next phone purchase has an ingress protection rating of IPx8 (i.e., either IP58 or IP68). This affords the phone full water protection when submerged for up to 30 minutes. This will allow the phone to be washed with soap and water as one washes their hands.
(2) Should one's phone not be IPx8 certified, rather than using 70% alcohol-based sanitisers that destroy the oleiophobic protective coating on the phone over time, it has been recommended by a microbiologist at UCL in London, to use ordinary liquid soap (non-bacterial) and a micro-fibre cloth to sanitise the phone.
The microbiologist demonstrates the cleaning procedure in a BBC video available at the following webpage:

Hey, how did you guess I'm using a cheap and nasty $50 piece of turd ?
Quote, "Higher refresh rate is simply superior on smartphone."
Higher refresh rates are not just "superior" on a phone, but also on TVs and monitors.
The biophysics behind refresh rates is that the average human eye can discern flickering at up to 72Hz, so 60Hz displays are noticeably flickery (CRT and LCD/LED work differently, and so on CRTs are more pronounced).
At 120Hz, any on-screen motion will be pin sharp smooth by reducing the level of blur and increasing the visual fluidity of on-screen objects. The 120Hz display (compared to 60Hz) also responds twice as frequently to user input updates, such as mouse movements or screen taps, which when combined with relatively low input lag, gives the user superior feedback and a much more 'connected' feel.
Anything beyond 120Hz is surplus to requirement, thus 240Hz gaming monitors are pointless. Besides, the law of diminishing returns advocates higher than 120Hz/144Hz will give marginal improvements as to make them not worthwhile.

And one more thing. If Android manufacturers keep raising prices, remove expandable storage, remove 3.5 mm jack, offer huge curved screen devices - when why is the hell I need Android? I'll buy just buy iPhone.

Furthermore, never mind the "plastic A7 with a slow exynos processor", Uncle Sammy has bigger problems - who buys the Samsung Galaxy S20 / S20+ with Exynos SoC in any case ? The Europeans loathe it.
You know why is that start that low price for 5G because memory starts from 64gb! LoL
Thats how they roll.... from the start low a price for 64gb they will catch you for the iCloud service after because 64gb is not enough anymore for many users.

From the viewpoint of a typical average person that comprises the masses, it's a no-brainer to purchase the better (marketing) specced iPhone 12.
As much as I hate Google/facebook, these two are not going away anytime soon. Ios and android are different breeds catering to different markets. Once threatened by Apple, things are sure to change.
Besides, anyone looking for a superior 3.5mm jack/expandable storage/openness experience will automatically ignore Apple products.

Including all taxes, 5.4" iPhone 12 costs same as a better specced OnePlus 8 Pro in India, which is a flagship of OnePlus. And 6.1" iPhone 12 costs almost same as Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus(still better specced) and S20 Ultra is certain to cost cheaper than iPhone 12 Pro and even more cheaper than iPhone 12 Pro Max. Don't think iPhones are as favorably priced all over the world as the USA. So iPhone 12s aren't competing against mid range phones as you think. Each and every member of iPhone 12 family will be up against competitors' flagships.

Yes indeed. Apple has a low penetration in countries such as India, primarily because they are vastly overpriced. Should Apple wish to dominate in Asia, you are absolutely correct in stating they need to hit the sweet point with their pricing.
Should Apple do this, Android market share shall be in retreat.
