Would not turn back to android now that I've seen things can be done better and stress-free.
"The whole Android market just copied Apple's notched approach and now the scene is overwhelmed with such phones."
And they 1st started to copy bezzless design from Xiaomi Mi Mix ;)
Someone on weibo says it Xr and Xs will earn 100 and 104 points for camera.
XZ2p, Mate 20, Pixel 3 and Mate 20 Pro would be above with 105, 107, 107 and 116.
The review highlights the many things iphones can do very well, which android phones can do the same or differently, and actually do even better. What the review doesn't reveal is just how limited, restrictive, convoluted and jurassic iOS is, compared to android as regards simple customizations/personalization, file transfers, screen share, true multitasking and split screen, etc. I beg to disagree with gsmarena. You're buying an iPhone for the prestige and personal image, first and foremost - not for its smartphone functionality or user experience because its truly a horrible locked prison user experience. That's essentially what the iPhone is unless all you do on iphones is take photos for Facebook, watch YouTube, play Candy Crush, and call and text. If those are the only things you do, then certainly, you won't see just how inutile is the user experience is in iOS. Again, I beg to disagree with gsmarena. You're not paying for the user experience. You're paying for the prestige more than what the phone truly capable of. And what it's capable of is a far cry from what android can do.
How's your cell and wifi- reception on your new iPhones? As bad as everyone is saying
And thats that, apple it´s the best because GSM Arena says so.....Forget about the 73 endurance batery life, or the poor charging time (because of the poor charger included)
i can agree on one thing, people buy apple because of brand and the UI experience, true to that.
Yasser, 26 Sep 2018Just 74 hours battery endurance rating? No, thanks. I don't want to carry a powerbank all the ... moreYou might re-think that, both of new iPhones have excellent battery life
The review does not say what the iOS version was on the iPhone X used in the camera comparisons. Was it still at iOS 11 or upgraded to match the XS?

"The fluidness and the problem-free iOS, which doesn't require regular cleaning of caches and app data, installing various Play services updates or cleaning spam bloatware - it adds definite value to the user experience." - You are just echoing what Apple says: It just works. No, sorry, at times, it doesn't. Fluidity? Looks like you have never used an Android flagship in recent years, at least, the ones from Samsung, Sony. Regular cleaning is not required in recent Android OSs. Installation of services and updates is also part of iOS, Android just does it more frequently which is a good thing for fixing bugs and getting better features. And, the most hilarious statement: Cleaning spam bloatware. In Android, bloatware exists, but you can't clean them unless you root, and there is no spam; you can install and uninstall whatever you like, mostly free of cost (iOS charges for many common apps). In iOS, if I consider an app pre-installed by Apple to be bloatware, I can't clean either. Lastly, after using both iOS and Android my user experience is superior in Android even without rooting.
Portrait mode depth is extremely unrealistic. Gsmarena, why do you ignore that?
DD, 26 Sep 2018They always release an 'S' version after the regular one. 5, 5S, 6, 6SNo 7S, 8S...
Mikeonline, 26 Sep 2018Note 9 is much better than any iPhone or any smartphone on the planet but it's still Android a... moreI think the review clearly stated that the XS is the best phone on the planet, and when both are unreasonably expensive at € 1000, the reasonable part is to spend that money on the newer, better phone and not on one with half-a-year old technology.
Note 9 is much better than any iPhone or any smartphone on the planet but it's still Android and we all know Google's mission to take and misuse everyone's personal info,, samsung can't do much about it because google will keep musing the information that's why I've no option except buying an iPhone XS max and I'm sure same is the case for many
Geric.770, 26 Sep 2018Well, let them buy what they want. It's not our money. It's their money. ;)Actually every earned money is money of someone else...and the spend money then again is someone elses money. If you don't believe me: what are banks? The most valueable "companies" in this world right? Companies that produce nothing! They don't own or produce money but lend money of people to other people, try to get more money with lend money of customers, that again is money of someone else...money is a bit like energy only much more volatile.
I don't care for how people spend money, but I care for those people supporting apple's monopoly and therefore Im in for those people not getting more of my earned money.

Do you see the Essential or the iPhone's notch on the Nokia 5.1 Plus/ 6.1 Plus, LG G7 Fin/One/Thinq, Motorola One, Huawei P20/P20 Pro, Honor 10/8x/9N/Play, Xiaomi Pocophone/MiA2 Lite/Mi 8/8 SE, Oppo F7/R15, OnePlus 6? Right...
