It's true but in some conditions. Like if you play genshin impact at full settings in a14 it will give around 55-45fps and sd888 will give you 59-52(Asus Zenfone 8) But I accept that a14 is an insanely processor power and battery efficient But sadly if you see overall performance sd888 win in gaming in editing and also probably multitasking So sd888 wins. It's my opinion so don't get on fire.

I personally think the snapdragon 888 is better than the 14 Bionic because I used the 14 bionic in the 12 pro but then I switched the z fold 3 and it has way better fps than the 12 pro i dont think specs matter they only matter if you can actually use the power.

Already compared (Android & iOS) it's almost insane in my opinion. Android is a lot of brands that use it. Each overlay brings back something different and can cause some minor issues in terms of fluidity or bugs. - Why iPhone, Why Android: iPhone is optimized for iPhone "iOS, Bionic A12, A15 ... Applications only come from the store" Android, Many overlays using common processors must be optimized for each manufacturer and yet each major update causes bugs because each overlay must be optimized. In addition to the possibility, the freedom to source applications from anywhere. Also taking into account the optimization for the user experience for each overlay (Battery, Fluidity, Performance, memory management, etc.) I am an entrepreneur, I manage 17 companies of my own, everything goes through my phone, Personal experience, Android manages my tasks better. I am also passionate about technology, video games, and multimedia. I am a fan of Call Of Duty Mobile. For gaming, both do the job right. For multimedia yes you can have faster renderings on iOS than on Android taking into account the year of release of each phone on iPhone and Android. Is it worth going to the iPhone for that? Was it a minute late? You have to know what your needs are understood to be. So on the performance both (Android, iPhone) are good. You won't be picking it up because an Android takes 20 seconds for a rendering, for example. I am not well financially I can buy an Android like the (Realme GT) which costs less than 500 $ by compromising on for example the photo part. But Honorable performance. With an iPhone, I put $ 800 to have a powerful iPhone, a smaller screen, and less photo sensor but still having something good. For example, an iPhone 13 pro max and a Huawei P50 Pro are two very expensive phones. Will give you specs with all their "know-how". Personally, I prefer for the moment an iPhone 13 Pro max, 120hz screen (Already Android must go up on screens at high refresh rates to get closer to IOS in terms of animation fluidity and others) Bionic A15, photos and excellent videos for 2021 and maybe 2022, while waiting to see what Android offers for 2022. In terms of autonomy, the iPhone 13 pro max makes fun of the phones running Android which costs the price of an iPhone 13 pro max. - Conclusion: I respect iPhone because you don't have to worry about buying a premium smartphone. After all, iPhone offers everything, absolutely everything. And iOS updates (5 years update, 3 years max on Android "correct me if I'm wrong"). While on Android you have to find which smartphone does better than the other in terms of photo, autonomy, interface (OS). The only thing that I can't choose an iPhone is the fact that it's too closed due to iOS. I want to copy any file from my pc very quickly, install whatever I want from the world, stuff like that. As everything has its advantages and disadvantages, you have to know how to separate things. I think the question is not around the most powerful smartphone but especially the use we can make of it and our preferences. Thanks for reading my tech novel. I hope I haven't upset anyone. My sincere apologies. And sorry for my bad English.

A14 is stronger in gaming but throttles quicker than sd 888. So if a14 was put in an android phone, it will overheat faster than sd 888. Ya'll iPhone fans say a14 is better than sd 888 in battery life. It doesnt overheat because ios limits its performance when it heats up. Not a fan of any brands

No, very wrong. The A14 pulls a max of 5W, whereas the SD888 easily pulls over 10W under heavy load, while still being unable to match the A14s performance. Thus if you were to put both chips into the same phone, the A14 would run cooler

Bob, It doesn't overheats because of many reasons. The RAM management is better due to less complicated IOS UI. Also it has lesser screen resolution with lesser refresh rate. The background apps are better optimized. Also the ppi is lower. Comparing the top edge phones S21 ultra SD 888 vs Iphone 12 pro max A14

"Has 2 more cores" is listed as a pro for the Snapdragon. This is wrong. The snapdragon has lower total performance and the fact that there are an extra 2 cores is already included in that performance. But the downside on needing those 2 extra cores is that the performance of each core is even lower that the overall performance indicates. So for any algorithm that cannot make use of multiple cores, those extra 2 cores actually spell bad news, and not good news.

Qualcomm orders Samsung 4nm technology for mass producing the regular Snapdragon 895, the Snapdragon 895 Plus could be fabricated by TSMC. One reason why the Taiwanese chip manufacturer is not taking Qualcomm orders is due to the ongoing silicon shortage.

Been using both android and ios since 2015 And frankly I don't notice that slight difference people so adamantly mention in debates. Android is more user friendly, has lot of options- you need a bigger screen? A big screen with 120hz? A small screen with 120hz? A small phone with 5000mah? A phone with 7000 mah battery? Dual speakers? Oled display? 3.5mm? Notification led? -its customizable On the other hand iPhone have became a status symbol mostly due to fact that many prominent figures use it, but they are not very user friendly sure the os and hardware are well optimized but at the cost of freedom there are a lot of walls you must "break" or climb sometimes if you want freedom and, if you pull out your 300$ android in a lavish party you'll get "those" kind of looks, well that's the society we live in and I have experienced it myself. But if your caught gaming on a iPhone you'll quickly become a laughing stock among gamers. but that doesn't mean you should do what the world wants you too, hell play on iPhone or work on Android because you are the one who paid for it. I use my both phones however I like and don't give a damn about the world.if my battery runs out on Android I'll continue playing Azur lane and Genshin on iPhone lol nothings going to stop me. 888 vs 2100 vs 900 vs A14 To open a Netflix or whatsapp even that unamed mediatek processor is enough Sure some games are demanding but....do you really game on phone? I mean it's cool if you do but I'll prefer a PC or console personally and if mobility is not required. Even mid range SD and older A10 can run modern games, sure not on "Ultra" but you get to play them anyway. Remember real racing 3? Ofcourse new processors have better connectivity and camera modules and other nerd and geek stuff, I'm not going into details but I think even the old iPhone X and galaxy note 10 take pretty good pics even today. What my point is the companies will keep trying to milk you in name of flagship but you have to know your needs, apple will keep rolling new iPhone. today's A14 will be dethroned but will that mean users will throw away their 12 series? Nope even after next 5 years every app in store will run on it, by that time I think they will be selling iPhone 15 or 16 lol same is with Samsung and other brands. I have used both and will continue to use both and I'm telling you unless you do extremely heavy task like rendering, video editing, mobile photography etc you will never be able to say the difference in day to day task. Peace out.

I'm not an expert in phone tech, however, I can almost guarantee you that Apple hasn't done this due to battery reasons. Apple has been avoiding making their phones too heavy, thick, or generally large and it seems that they finally have to go with the higher screen refresh rate trend... But the bigger battery actually makes my S21 Ultra almost impossible to use one handed... So maybe Apple might be on to something?

Which the a14 wins in and it doesn’t matter what refresh rate the screen is in order to do that. I had a s20 ultra. Honestly it was buttery smooth but I’d rather have the extra 3 hours of battery life when it was turned off

When some complain about optimization in Android and compare it with iPhone, try to check the iPhone again, you will see that you can't use any app except the one iPhone has allowed you to use. You can't try many foreign apps coz there's no optimization there in those part. If you're allowed to use those apps and you see those lags in iPhone much more that you will be terrified and shocked😂. This is a smart move that iPhone has been doing to it's users for years and blinding them. It's not easy to just sprang up on your own and start using all the apps other Android are using this is what iPhone has been trying to optimize for the some years since it's production that's why you see payments most times on iPhone. Am not trying to be baised here. Am just explaining some few things there are many more that I can say but from the look of it. My hands can't go further 😂. I rest my case here, have a nice day everyone. Maybe am wrong in some parts here but I don't have time to do correction. Am open to learn new things though so you can add if you like. We learn everyday. 👌

Instagram/Facebook are not apple apps but they works smoother than on any andriod phones.. If you are talking about apps downloaded outside of apple store , yes their optimization would be poor because apple ensure all apps on store have best of optimization but if user go out of it , legs will be there.. Andriod in this case encourage people to download shit from anywhere , apple ensure security over freedom and that’s choice for every individual to choose either more freedom/customization or choose better optimized secured chamber type OS

And the point that he wants to state out it's if there's someone accidentally damaged the backglass of their phone, they're having a bad day to spend a fortune just to fix the broken glass when the other companies could've just charge u lesser then a new cheap phone does. If you ever damaged Ur phone front glass, and the company wants to charge u more than a used iPhone 8 plus does, would you spent the money? Think about it twice.

iOS, I really don't think that either of those phones are particularly durable... Especially given both of their track records... As for that particular drop test video, both phones survived until like 12 feet, where the S21 Ultra took a bad bounce. They should really do those tests with 3 phones, each. I bet you'll find the average to be very close.

Always buy Android phones. They have better features and more flexibility in terms of software, backup restore etc. Also they are cost effective. See the Samsung S series and MI 11 series and also some Flagship killer under 30K with snapdragon 870. I would think to buy iPhone again but the unrepairable glass design and high cost service made me switch from iPhone 11 to Samsung S series. Pretty happy with S21 5g

Sup ppl... Been using both snapdragon and a14.... Both SOC are amazing... The SD could be the winner, but its biggest downfall is the lack of optimization from companies that use the chip... Most phones out there are plagued by shitty skinned androids, lack of updates and fine tuning... Its shameful that every year the snapdragon doesn't get used to its full potential.. Perhaps the best use case for it comes from the Asus ROG phones... As for the a14, the fact that apple controls its stack makes it more appealing for long term and it has superior software tuning to go with it... Also iOS in general is much cleaner under the hood when referring to coding. There is no messy files app, and software is supported for 2-3 or more times longer the android... They both have pros and cons... What I miss is a company like essential ph1, they literally had the best update support for android, even beating out Google's own phones!

Hard to understand how people don't fully appreciate Android for its easy access to Google Assistant which is truly a game changer. iOS has it too, thanks to Google but it's not fully integrated and a user has to negotiate with Siri first which makes the whole experience a real hassle. I still use my OnePlus 6 like it's brand new (A10 and patiently awaiting A11). I can invoke Google Assistant when my phone is in my pocket and locked. A must feature that iOS can't really offer. Buying an iOS smartphone is basically for either the braindead or just for a very discriminating user. Siri is worthless, by the way.

Maybe you guys using Snapdragon 870 high tech processor or A13, you might use A14 or Snapdragon 888 but im still using iphone 5s, 1.3GHz dual-core Apple A7 processor. It comes with 1GB of RAM runs iOS 7 and is powered by a 1570mAh non-removable battery. hahah :) and also playing in this device free fire. funny isn't it? In future you have to sell your kidney for A14 bionic or M1. can not afford bro.

Firstly, the optimization on Apple iPhones are sick, not a hint of lag or delay shall be noticed, the apps on iOS are working the way they were designed to.

The first part, I agree, but my last 3 phones were a s20 ultra, apple iphone 12 and a note 20 ultra. Any app that was specifically optimized by apple or the developer works great, if I ever tried a sketchy app I have no support and it glitches like crazy. The samsung's solution was just throw as much specifications it could into a phone and slightly optimized it, although a stupid solution, it works like a charm and even the sketchy apps that I use for virtualization control or network management actually works! I don't have to carry around a laptop! Ok, I will give you that most people don't need their phone to do that, but I didn't really see the point of owning a phone that has a terrible assistant (which used to be the industry standard RIP Siri), has such a bad screen (ok yeah im spoiled by samsung), and its main use is for snapchat and instagram.

Bud, the iphone may have a 60 Hz refresh but it has a 120 Hz sample touch rate that makes everything fluid. Andrioid is performance all out while apple is productivity and class all out. The same goes for a Mac and a windows machine. They both are targeted for different marktes and shouldn't be compared much. I prefer android becauee of the simple performance numbers and Qualcomm provides just that! A14 bionic has its own uses. More ram or no android takes alot to run rather than iOS and so it need much less ram. And also the amount of gaming options on iOS are not as vast as on android with google play, that's also a reason apple can make do with less ram and give competiton to the best flagships. It comes down to preference rather than numbers.

Anonymous, I got news buddy. Android's have 360hz touch sample on average and 90-144z refresh rate. I heard a 240hz display is in the making somewhere...

The competition between qualcomm and apple is good for advancing technology and affordability. However this race really seems to be one sided in favor of the apple a14 bionic. You see the performance charts that the a14 is beating qualcomm's recently released flagship snapdragon 888 by decisive margins despite coming out 3 months earlier. And add to qualcomm's short comings, just recently the 888 was tested on iqoo and xiaomi phones and 2 major problems occurred, first the 888 consumed more battery power than expected and second the 888 ran hotter than expected which shows that the 888 needs refining, so my advice is if you're a android fan do not try to become the first kid on the block to get a 888 based phone but rather wait until qualcomm perfects their 888. By doing that you'll get a better perfected phone and you'll get for a lower price possibly since prices start coming down after awhile. Now if best performance is what you're seeking in a phone regardless if it's android based or apple ios based then the choice is easy, the apple with the a14 bionic wins easily since it wins in performance and does not have those 2 problems I already mentioned that qualcomm is currently having with their newly released flagship 888.

Optimisation will eventually come. Apple throughly optimises it before release.

iPhone vs Flagship Android 13 January 2021 10:20
Since 2014, every 2nd year I bought one flaghsip OnePlus to me and one iPhone to my wife. There is no doubt, that OP has always better battery life, more free app option. But. After two years of usage - android becomes more laggy (after wipe too), no sw or security updates were delivered, battery life becomes worse against iPhone. And biggest pain point of my android phone was value loss. Android lost after two years 70-80% of origin value, where iPhones I sold in no time with half price. Since 2018 I switched to iPhone too (my current phone is iPhone XS 256GB) and guys, I'm still getting sw updates with new features added. No lagging, performance is pretty good. Still playing games on highest settings, battery life is still one day +. I know that iPhones lacks some android nice features, but I don't care because I don't need them. Buying a phone is the same as buying car. It's all about your preferences.

I would say it depends on the manufacturer of the phone and carrier for updates tbh. Bc google phones and samsung phones on Verizon receive all updates pretty quickly. The former quicker due to android software being made by Google lol.. I think that's where apple has a leg up since that process is more streamlined bc they don't have to deal with multiple companies

Ucox, Still rumoured as ROG 4 and actually from Taiwan. Culture similarly but still different since Taiwanese don't like or even hate China. But number 4 means die in their language so it probably skip to 5 or whatsoever

The biggest difference is that iOS is a golden cage with so many restrictions.

Jeder hat seine eigene Meinung und das ist auch gut, aber hat sich im Vergleich zu den letzten Jahren bereits geöffnet Mehr ich finde die Produkte mega gut und auch sehr schön verarbeitet, ich hatte beides, deshalb kann ich sagen. Das wäre für mich persönlich Android nicht in Frage, aber das bedeutet noch lange nicht, dass man dieses Produkt schlecht findet, jeder sollte einfach das verwenden, was er will, klar der Preis bei sind oft unterirdisch, aber sonst Top-Unternehmen Das war meine Meinung und ich will niemanden angreifen oder sagen dass seine Sachen schlecht sind daher euch allen ein schönes neues Jahr und ein guten Start ins neue jahr
