    I’ve used both iPhone and Android – including the Google Pixel 3 – smart phones extensively and there’s still some things that iPhone (and iOS) do better. And don’t mention Windows or Amazon phones kthnxbai.

      I keep my phone on vibrate. So my mute switch is almost always on red. But for the few times i did switch it, and needed to switch it back, it had to be the most convenient thing ever. Also no matter how often you need it, you never have to think about using it since it’s a hardware feature. I love it

        software updates. thats a big reason. buy an apple iphone and it will be maintained with bot feature and security updates for 5-6 years. android phones are abandoned with old s/w 2-3 years after release by most oems

          Apple didn't want to unlock a suspect's phone for the FBI? I'm pretty sure they don't know how and played it off as "Privacy, yo" Apple is dogshit and as a result I won't ever buy an Iphone.

                          Dude, that's what goes through my head every time someone does a video on iPhones like this. It's almost as if everyone just forgot about it. But not me and you, man.

                          Thanks for helping me realise that that event actually happened and that it wasn't all in my head. I hope you have a great day/night.👍

                              The thing is, you're comparing Apple, a singular company, against Android. Android isn't one company, it is an operating system that has individual instances maintained by separate companies. Would have thought Linus would think of this, especially since included in these ratios are budget phones, you know, the $100 Android phones at the store.

                              I'd like to see a closer comparison, like a Samsung Flagship Phone versus a Apple Flagship Phone.

                                            Linus were not going to get anything that exciting in phones. That is the thing with matured tech. When is the last time you had a computer that quote blew your socks off.

But what i can't stand is when people come to me at the school and talk trash about my Samsung. For example I got a galaxy s10 plus, and my friend keep telling me my phone is trash even tho he got a 6s
