Youtubers use an iphone coz of the best recording quality and editing but 90fps gameplay in a snapdragon chipset is better than 60fps iphone.

For 3dmark wildlife, A14 bionic is more than capable of averaging above 50+ fps.

Nope it's still lock at 60 fps. Get the iphone 13 pro or pro max because it has 120 fps display.

Thomas, Look ranking is based on cpu performance not gaming. Games are more gpu dependent, obviously Snapdragon 888 beats bionic chip 14 in gaming.

Sab, Snapdragon have never beaten Apple chips in GPU performance, 90% of the gamers use Apple iPhones. Apple is 3 generations ahead in every aspect of chip. If you want proof, watch Speed test G YouTube channel.

iphone 12 pro max does not have 90 refresh rate, so you cannot open 90fps on pubg

Shourya, Preach to them!! People don't know how seamless it is for developers to develop games for IOS thus making games run flawlessly on them.. 😅 With Android, you have to deal with crappy Samsung and Xiaomi with their plethora of bugs infested in them.

I question the validity of the battery life ranking. How can the A14 bionic get a lower ranking than the snapdragon 888? It is obvious and clear that the battery drain, measured in mAh/min, of the latest iPhones (12 series) is superior when compared to any snapdragon 888 equipped phone.

Why , the iphone 12 is better

iPhone gang 17 August 2022 23:45
The term "BEST" is subjective because the iPhone is best to me due to the fact that it owns the entire platform from the hardware to the software and there are fewer devices from Apple so developers find it easier to develop apps for the IOS platform because of that when compared to over 500 devices from Samsung, 3,000 devices from Xiaomi and over a million devices from other brands so yeah the iPhone is the best to me, but it might not be the best for you so like I said, it is subjective
