Your priorities in a phone are not my priorities in a phone. My Nexus 5X has worse single-thread performance than an Apple device of equivalent role, configuration, and era… and I don’t care. It’s perfectly functional, I’ve never been annoyed with how slow my phone is, and it lets me do things that an iPhone doesn’t.
It’s getting more into opinion, but I would argue that, if you asked one hundred iPhone users why they bought the iPhone over an Android flagship phone, maybe five of them would say, “Because the processor performs better in real-world use cases.” Five’s probably too generous, even.
I like how you went back and edited an insult into your post. (I watched it happen in real time. Nifty feature, Discourse.) Classy.
