You completely misunderstood my comment.
I have mentioned that iPhone 11 Pro throttles and iPhones nearly lacks any cooling solution but only graphene layers, which is not enough to counter throttling especially in GFX Manhattan.
Regular iPhone 11 does not throttle but only because its screen resolution is lower.
Poco F2 Pro definitely runs better and cooler and it has a large vapor chamber like its sibling, Mi 10. It dissipates heat effectively even a realme X50 Pro cannot match (throttles as well and also owing to poor software).
Heck, you can't even read properly. What a shame.

As I said, you are poor at basic research. Why you need to scan through multiple forums for a third party app?
I personally don't recommend upgrading for incremental updates unless they are fixing some important bugs. There is always a threat of something breaking due to new updates. This applies to all manufacturers. Best is to wait for input and reviews from other users before upgrading blindly.

And I rely on OTA coz I don't want to constantly check xda for updates and flash entire ROMs instead of incremental updates. I used to be on xda all the time back in the Galaxy S1 through Galaxt S6 years but know when I'm paying $500+ I prefer to have a good out-of-the-box experience

Nowhere did the iPhone 11 pro Max throttle in performance owing to lack of dedicated cooling during the annihilation by Poco F2 pro.
No amount of vapor chamber cooling could have saved the iPhone in that speed test.
Besides the Poco F2 pro is neither a gaming phone nor does it have dedicated cooling.

All the so-called global ROMs for the Tencent version are home-brew stuff made in China. There are tons of issues and no OTA updates. This is nothing like what other manufacturers like Oneplus are releasing officially, where I can spend 2 minutes and flash the EU ROM or Global ROM on my 7T and I'll still have official OTA updates and zero issues

I have a Oneplus 7T as my work phone and the UI is so limited in comparison to everything else I've tried. I hate that I have to scroll down twice to reach the brightness slider, I hate that the display is AMOLED but there isn't an always-on ambient display. I hate that there isn't an automatic pop-up for the screen orientation if I'm lying in bed and don't want it to be automatic and constanly sawitch on its own. And tons of other quality-of-life improvements that other manufacturers have included in their ROMs. The iPadOS on my ipad is even more limiting but I guess the new 14 version will fix some stuff.

Flashing global ROM (its official ROM intended for users globally) over tencent won't give you bugs like custom Roms from xda.
Third party retailers were flashing it for the users so they can enjoy global ROM without having to do any flashing or tinkering. Complete stable experience.
Understand the difference?
Next time research more before buying a phone.

IOS is severely handicapped ecosystem.

And I got it for $500 *why would I pay 600-700 euros to have someone else flash a custom Rom. And the phone call quality over the earpiece was hoorendous even after the update that presumably fixed it. In comparison, the Huawei p30 pro and mate 30 pro sound like 100 times better. I've actually used the phone for 2 months and am not just quoting other users or reviews.
I'll wait for the actual release and pricing to decide but I'm leaning more towards the either the new Lenovo Legion (coz I'm happy with my Legion laptop) or just get the new huawei Mate 40 as the new kirin will be 5nm an much better than the SD865 (or SD865+), and the 5nm sd875 (or whatever it's called won't come out until nest spring). So only Huawei and Apple will have 5nm SoCs this year

The actual bottleneck is the lack of dedicated cooling solution (vapor chamber, heat plates, etc.) but graphene layers.
Checking at thermal throttling in Notebookcheck (this was in early iOS 13 build with throttling bug), any iPhone with LCD (ex. iPhone 11, SE) runs fine with little to no performance drop, but when it comes to iPhone 11 Pro, the phone just gets very warm and reduced in performance.
Cooling solution is the factor, not the chipset. Had iPhones come with a vapor chamber and bigger heat plates it would have crushed the Poco F2 Pro.
Never interested in what Asus is offering.
I will rather look at Xiaomi's offering instead. Poco F2 Pro is pretty cheap yet giving you high specs (aside from lack of wireless charging). I'll see any user reports/issues that arise, then pick up one when EOFY deal strikes the end of the year.
The Thing That Makes Me Happy About ROG 3 Is 144Hz Display , 6000mAH Battery & 865+ That It ..
I Am Disappointed That They Didn't Even Increase The Screen Size , I Was Hoping For 6.7 Inch , 6.59 Inch Is Too Small For A Gaming Phone .. To Asus , I Wanted To Say That *PERFORMANCE ISN'T EVERYTHING* For Example , If Apple Renewed The iPhone 4 Which Has Only 3.5 Inch Display But Apple Would Include Their Upcoming A14 Bionic Chip ? Would You Like To Game On It ? My Answer Is HELL NO!
