Did u EVER have a Samsung Note 4, for example?... moreWas your uncle's Note updated to the latest version of android each year? I guess not, because android phones are always falling behind in terms of updates.
So yeah, running a phone with older-than-current OS version, or with the original OS version will keep the phone working for longer. But there's no security, no bug fixes, no new features, it's all old stuff.
If you take some 2014-2016 phone and install android 9 on it, it will lag.
Whereas if you have a 4 year old iPhone, it will still work smoothly on the latest version. If it's a 3 year old iPhone, it's going to perform flawless. If it's 2 years old or newer, it's going to perfom perfect.
For example, an iPhone 4 will still perform perfectly today if it were running on iOS 6.
With android you get two options:
- have less lag by not updating or because you can't install the current OS version on devices older than 2 years
- experience lags because you updated to the latest available version - which is most probably older than the current one.
It's funny calling others 'sheep' when you buy products that require you to pay more money to get the latest OS version. (aka buying a new phone that supports the latest version)
How's your Android 7 going? We have Android 8 and 9 now so you will need a new phone for the latest one. Or wait one year to get an update to Android 8 by the time Android 10 comes out.
And I'm rocking my 2 year old iPhone on iOS 12 - the latest version. And it'll run iOS 13 as well. And iOS 14. The moment they will be released, I will have them installed. No delays.
Now please, let me know more about how "nice, smooth, and updated" your android phone is.

That's why it sold quite high even for a 4 years old device (around 150 dollars nowadays) as Note 4 here is known as robust as the old Nokia.

His phone also had troubles focusing from almost the beginning.

My uncle had it for 4 DAMN YEARS, and NO 'laggy' mess whatsoever albeit only having 3GB RAM!
Yes, the display got mild burn-in as it was 4 years old now, but no decrease in performance AT ALL.
Yes, the software update support was already over, but there is no "planned obsolescence" added to the last security patch.
Yes, the battery wears with time, but he can EASILY buy and change it FOR FREE even after the warranty period was over (only need to buy SEVERAL batteries while it lasts (NO repair costs)
(he owned both the SD805 version, and Exynos 5433); unlike iphails who GOT OBSOLETE after 2 years and become worse by the time it got major 'update' (pushed persistently to old iphails just to make sure the performance will decreased, so sheeps forced to buy the 'recently' available ones which cost an arm and leg))

Also, you can expect the Xr to remain fast and smooth for at least 3-4 years. This is what matters most, imo.
User experience must not be so terrible given that iphones have the most returning customers of any phone brand. You are gonna say they are just blind sheeps, though.
The iPhone XR looks like a great device.
Thanks for the review.

Whereas Pocophone and Note 9 will be a laggy mess in two or three years, the XR and other iPhones will still be fast and smooth.

They c... moreThey buy an expensive car so people notice them and they feel good about them self. Its the same with iPhones, people buy them to be cool to others. Why would anyone accept a worse screen, slower charging, no possibility of switching data without iTunes for MORE money? Why do almost all iPhones have the same ringtone? Because they wanna be noticed. They feel important. A huge part of the people owning an iPhone buys it because of the logo and because they don't know better.
The biggest sales advantage of the XR is people who own an old iPhone model will be happy and will not notice the proven WORSE screen? It sounds to me like "hey, they are used to use dated out tech and will pay for it anyway so it doesn't matter".
All the youtube reviews make me wanna puke. They sold their opinion for a free device, let's face it. Just put the XR next to a Note9 and start youtube. I don't even wanna mention the other 100 things that the iP lacks and, yes, they are the same category as the Note 9 costs 850 euros brand new in my country without a contract and the XR is 950 euros.
And no, iOS is not better than android at that price level. Whoever says that hasn't had a top-tier Android device for more than a day.

They cost hundreds of thousands of $ but they are only 2-2.5 times faster than a $5,000 car.
So where's the gain for the money???
Nice logic, right? Because you find these expensive and not very cost efficient, it doesn't mean that those who buy them are Ferrari sheep or Lambo sheeple. They are just people who don't care about costs.
Would you buy a $400 pair of shoes? It's not 10x better than a $40 pair. No matter how much better it is, it's still better. And better is better, no matter by what margin. The best sprint runner in the world is maybe 10% faster than the average in sprint running.
Who would you like to be: the average one for little-to-medium effort or the one that's 10% faster but has to train 10x more for that 10% performance?

Not in real life performance though. Check out app opening speed tests on YouTube. Xs Max and Note 9 are neck-and-neck, and Pocophone F1 (with its light skin) is actually faster than Xs Max in opening most apps.
am not a big fan of Apple phones specifically or other products generally but I admire Apple. I wish any company besides Apple to make a customer buy a phone blindly and even the price is crazy high. also am very certain that if Apple sold the phone with empty box and the customer should buy the device separately every apple fan will say it's new feature and they are to buy it.
