All you guys do is support random android companies by bashing apple and saying "bla bla bla, no fast chargin g no "ultrawide and telephoto cameras" no good software no flexibility no no no no no" and yet apple is doing better then ever in terms of sales and profit. Seriously, who in the 99% of non techy people actually care about the "latest features of software"? So remember, we need you android fanbois to keep on bashing apple, cause it only helps sales! So keep up the hard work!
And no, 5 years later IOS is far more feature packed then any android software 5 years ago. You know what, let's compare IOS 13 with android 5! IOS is SOOO superior

Apple is using inferior fast charging tech.
Don't worry you'll get 65W fast charging on your iPhone in 2025.
Software support? Lol half the year, they keep fixing bugs since they roll out half baked versions of iOS.
And Android from 5 years back can do more things than current iOS.
Software support being better exists only on paper. In the real world, iOS is simply playing catchup with Android.
What good is that software support when you are getting latest features in the tech world 5-6 years late? What good is that software support when your battery and cpu are being slowed down deliberately with each subsequent update?

We can't stop fantasizing about more ram ... moreI agree with everything you say except for they sell to only 15% of the market. I feel like apple is trying to appeal to the majority of people(like 50-90%). It's just that there are people in other countries who can't afford $400+ smartphones, so they have to use $100 smartphones or $50 feature phones to make do.
AndroidMaster, 24 May 2020Well they are known to slow down older phones with subsequent updates.
Battery degradation th... moreLOL fam you are such a funny android fanboi. Would you rather loose your entire phone's capacity and software support in a year(fast charging is the problem) or would you rather get slightly slower performance for sustained battery life and actual software support.
Even you fanboys talk all day about "can't notice a difference in real-world usage" stuff, yet hypocrite yourselfs by talking about apple slowing down their phones for battery life.
Joke of the year from the greediest of firm. That battery life is laughably awful in 2020. Should have at least had 3400 mah. But then again it's Apple and their intelligent audience so it's fine I guess.

Battery degradation through software and other things.
They are also paying fines for the same.
I am big fan of your site !! I am checking the daily updates from about 9 yrs !! Wants to work with the gsmarena team , that's the dream and only that's why i had opted for etc !!!

I know that we all are tech lovers. We can't stop fantasizing about more ram higher clock speeds etc. But there are many mortals too. We might be small but LOUD. And we need to remember that there are people who just need a good phone. Good camera( not best ) good display good ergonomics good mic etc. But not the best. Apple is trying to sell phones to that group. Ex. The MacBook air does not look good on the spec sheet but I found myself longing for it since carrying it around is not a pain. Apple is a niche player. They try to sell to only 10-15% of the market. they tried to become a mass market player in the 90's and got nearly bankrupt. They try to give you what THEY think is best for consumers.
It is mainly OPEN (Android) Vs Closed(Fruit).
And the reason why people buy Apple is because it is reliable for MOST of the time. The performance will be gr8 due to optimization. optimization is everything. Samsung Google and Apple are able to give good experience because they spend money on r&d . Xiaomi and Chinese companies try to compensate that by reducing costs to get good PAPER specs.
In the end it depends whether you want specs or overall 5 yr experience. Just don't be a fanboy of a brand and conduct a thorough research for everything .
[deleted post]But im asking you to name one person.
If you say everybody says that, I need to know at least ONE person.
JDK, 21 May 2020proof pls?No need of proof.
Ask any top tech youtuber or ppl in tech community, they'll tell you how Verge is a joke, laughing stock.
You must be a casual.

Which makes any statements you further make less credible.

On your logic you can say alot of ppl still prefer nokia 3310 phones. smh
The only reason the SE sells is because too many ppl wants the apple brand but could not afford the $700 price tag, hence they buy the SE.
Anonymous, 09 May 2020This review is a joke, if you removed the Apple branding it would get 2 stars. I also can't... moreExactly. Just look at the low quality photos of the SE. They are on par with low end $200 Androids today. The author better check his eyesight.

And no, the verge actually understands that their main audience(probably americans) want an iPhone.
And lets look at the shortcomings. Low ram? who in the other 90% of people who aren't techies actually care? Not edge to edge AMOLED display with high refresh rates? around 80% of the people in this world don't actually care about those things either. Gaming triggers? If your actually want to play serious games, don't do it on a phone. No periscope zoom or super-high-resolution ultrawide camera? 80% of people don't care either.
Please use innovative headlines (one-liners) like you used to in past...
It was fun..
small battery life, small screen with wasting home button and header (it would be good if no home button and header, change to full screen). it is completly the same as iphone 8 nothing change. Android phones are better compair to the price. Apple, it's time to change don't be stingy.
