    I’ve owned many iPhones and many high end Androids. In the end the iPhone is an overall better user experience, much better. That’s all that really matters. The rest is just noise.

    It's silly.




    I'm not interested in that at all. I swear on everything I don't even know what the hell the mate 20 pro is.




    lol ok




    So since these benchmark tests are this important to you, why didn't you have the presence of mind to check on that before your return period for your iPhone XS Max ended?


    I don't care.




    You probably typed your entire post from your iPhone.
    No more silly than your replies about my critism.

    Nope i didn't write that post from an iphone i typed it from an Alienware 17 gaming laptop.

    It's not just about benchmarks, it's about the phones performance. A phone third the price has faster LTE speeds. Not acceptable.

    The fact that you never heard of a Huawei Mate 20 pro smartphone says you don't know much about phones so i guess i can understand why you don't understand my gripes with an overpriced phone.

    To be fair my Note 9 didn't do to bad against my Max. It's a good smooth snappy phone and i used it for a few months with no complaints.

    Dude... Ok you feel outsmarted by apple ... Well hey, sell whatever iPhone you have ...keep the Note 9 because it's snappier by a millisecond.. you'll probably save an few hours every year opening apps and live your life

    Am I a fan of apple? Not so much within the past two years

    Am I a fan of their pricing ? Not since they hit the 1k tag

    Do I have apple products? For now yes...

    Do what you want to do with your money


    You do you honey boo boo

    OP, My mom was on a OnePlus 3T, and has been getting steady updates. The phone still runs very well. I got the OnePlus 6T for her and used it for a few days of compare it to my XS Max. The only reason I upgraded her or because the network we’re on, T-Mobile, has released two new LTE bands that the 3T didn’t support and she wasn’t getting a great signal.

    The OnePlus 6T is insanely fast and it’s camera is very good. It’s not as good as the XSMax, Note 9, or Mate 20 Pro, but honestly, it’s more than good enough, and all of those phones have great cameras. We’re lucky enough to live in a time where almost every flagship phone has a great camera and is more than quick enough.

    If I lived in EMEA, didn’t have a MacBook (you have Alienware right?), and didn’t have a lot of family and friends on iOS, I would switch if I could get a reasonable price selling the XSMax, or if I was within my return period. The price difference there is simply insane, and as good as the XS Max is, it’s most certainly not that much better, and in some areas, the OnePlus is better.

    Personal I like both OS’, but recognize that each has its strengths and weaknesses because I use a MacBook as my primary laptop, and I can afford the XS Max, I’m sticking with that for now.

    FWIW, I had the Note 8, and S9+, and they were not as unstable as some others experienced. They had a lot of great features that I really miss. But having the XSMax with a MacBook and an Apple Watch is the best experience for me. Nothing wrong with the others, and I’m paying a hefty price for all of this.

    So odd that people come to other sites to try and justify their purchase. Do apple people do that on android sites?

    An old thread and I usually don't post in threads like this but here goes.

    I'm not fond of Samsung phones and never was, but I hate wasting time more so that settles it for me.

    I have had my xs max screen freeze a couple times, and it has also restarted 5 or 6 times in the three weeks I have had it. I guess I don’t see iOS or android much better then the other. It is strange that the iPhone test so much faster but in practice is basically the same. Then again it is funny how iPhone keeps apps open with only 4gb of ram and android needs 6 or 8. Would love to have both, but Verizon does not allow you to just swap the SIM card and go. No one else has good enough coverage.
    Verizon doesn't have any issues with you swapping your sim card from your iPhone to your Note or vise-versa. I've done it numerous times without a problem. The only notable issue that you'll encounter is visual voicemail is free on the iPhone and you'd have to pay for it on any other device so when swapping between phones the voicemail, (non-visual) works on the note but when swapping back the visual voicemail doesn't immediately start working on the iPhone, if someone leaves you a message you'll get a cryptic text message.

    I guess it depends on the plan. Visual voicemail is included in my plan. All 4 lines get it, but there's no additional $2.99 tacked on.

    Same with what I have. I like that you get a text message. Most times it’s hard to hear the voicemail.
