Go look for yourself, then come back and rebut.

Except keeping apps in memory seems to be a challenge for the latest iPhones

Last time I checked, my 3GB of ram iPhone was able to keep over 150 apps in the memory; can you tell me another phone - except another iPhone - that can do that?

150 apps? that's impossible. Vidos show the iPhone start to refresh apps after about 15-20. But it depends on app type. Serverside apps have to refresh data regardless of how much ram a phone has. The Galaxy S and Note was hold 25-30 apps in ram before needing to refresh. Limited RAM means limited capability, no matter what you claim. FACT - with PC's, it has been proven that a PC with a slower CPU and more RAM, could be faster in many tasks than a PC with a faster CPU and less RAM. You can try to justify the iPhone specs all you want, but its pointless. You liek the phone and that is all that shou;d matter. But stop tryign to compare them to everythign else. Your antiquated hardware yes can keep up, that doesn't mean you shouldn't have mor ebased on what you are paying. The conclusion is simple, whether the device needs the extra or not, you rather pay more for less vs paying and gettign what you pay for.

Because you're just a troll that talks about things that it (yes, a troll is an "it") doesn't know, you can possibly conceive that Apple has made an OS that it is able to hold in memory at least a hundred apps (maybe 2, I didn't count); I would explain to you the difference, but I prefer to just slap you. The same happens with Mac: because of the way the OS handles RAM management, the user is given access to all the apps as soon as he needs it. I am not the one who compares the iPhone with every single possible other phone - I believe it was you who I told I don't care to talk on a Apple topic how multitasking on Android works - I just state facts that are true for Apple devices; it's you - the trolls and frustrated fanboys - that feel the need to compare phones (you just did it again with #73...)

You're lying. We've seen the tests. Now rebut.

What was that? Your hand is shaking and I think there’s a problem with your modem. Try to write again when you recover from the bitchslap and you use a proper phone.

I agree. When you have a phone that hardly does anything, why add extra hardware you don't need. Yes, cause "some" Android phones that have 8 or 12GB of RAM, actually do somethign to make the ram worth it. After all, the more tasks an SoC can hold in RAm, the faster the phoen is and that is a fgact. And since the iPhone is limited in its multi-tasking capability; how do you justify paying $1000 for less of everything. I mean you hype the iPhone so much, but compare the iPhone to just the Galaxy S for the same price. You have a smaller battery that doesn't last even a work day of usage. Cameras that simply take acceptable photos. You have a UI that makes you do this backwards. No fast charger, lower rsolutions, less ram, less cores, less capability and less of everything. Since you have less, shouldn't you also pay less? I mean if a phoen with 12GB of RAM, cost basiclaly the same as your with 3/4GB of RAM; which one is actually the real better phone. I'm not asking which phone is best for you. Saying the fact is, those phone you are hating like the Note as an example; are far and away a more versatile tool for its price. The main and only thing wrong with the iPhone is it costs to much for low spec'd hardware.

Well, good thing that the iPhone does EVERYTHING. I don't have to compare it with any other phone, I only have to look at the loooong list of tasks one can perform with the iPhone and it's easy for me to see that it is one of the best phone there is. The battery of my XR lasts a power user 1 full day, an average user 2 days (it's one of the best battery in a flagship); according to a camera test publication, XR has the best single camera in a phone (XS camera was 3rd at the time of the release); the UI could offer more, but it's simple and intuitive; I have fast charge; no display has less than 300 ppi (unlike the new released Note 10, which comes with a 280 full ppi); the RAM is handled beautifully by the iOS (there was a video where Max handles the same amount of apps as a 10 GB device); I don't even know how many cores are in the chip, I only know that there's no phone that outperforms them; what I want I got. There's nothing missing from what a smartphone user needs; things could be better, but there's nothing missing. Show me a phone with 12 GB of RAM that runs iOS and I will check it out in order to see which is the better phone to buy. Where did you come up with the stupid idea that I hate the Note? Well, given the fact that it has a beast of a chip, NVMe storage, superb haptic engine, flawless build quality, beautiful calibrated screens, Face ID and access to Apple ecosystem, I'm ok with the cost of the iPhone, but why do you care how much money other people spend on phones?! Every year 200M people buy iPhones; who the fk do you think you are to impose your values to them, you sad little troll?!

That is ugly as hell. It's over. Apple is most surely done.

Why "Pro"? Let them call it "Con"! Can't Apple "think different"?

Scenario 3 is more acceptable. Apple is confusing consumers.

Pro in apple devices has a meaning. It’s actually for pro users like the MacBook Pro for professionals over MacBook for general day to day tasks. iPad Pro and iPad differentiating pro and daily tasks and the Mac Pro for very professional things. An iPhone isn’t a pro device so the naming scheme would be a joke like many android phones with pro in the end of their names.

Midan you said an iPhone isn't a pro device so the naming scheme would be a joke. Well that we can all agree on. However Android smartphones these days go way beyond any iPhone. The S10 has a minimum of 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, and the Note 10 has 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, plus they can run multiple apps simultaneously, and even have pen support, have desktop modes, can use mice, do a lot more than any iPhone today, by a mile.

Confusing Mike as Midan just because we both are iPhone users shows your desperation against apple. I think Midan scares you in your dreams coz he is using an iPhone in 2019. Well don’t write my name on your notebook next.

“An iPhone isn’t a pro device”. I’m going to remember that.

I get where you're coming from but the same professionals that buy a Mac/MacBook Pro would probably also use Apple's best iPhone or iPad. Hence why it makes sense to brand them all as 'Pro' models. People who buy the standard iPhone, on the other hand, are more likely to buy a regular iPad and Mac/MacBook.

Being an iPad Pro,MacBook Pro and iPhone XS user,I still won’t like my next iPhone to be called as a pro over 11 but it’ll not be that bad either. Not a deal breaker at all and they are likely to keep it for the big screen max version.

There is nothign pro about a Macbook Pro. The macbook Pro still uses consumer grade CPU's that are found in typical desktops. Real pro laptops use highend server grade CPU's.

Whatever they do with those names, nothing can be worse than that back with hideous, ugly camera design! Seriously Apple?

If you’re not an Apple User, please make your way to other articles (non-Apple articles) and don’t come back. Thx.

What if they are an Apple user, and don’t like the camera design? I’m an Apple user, and I’m not overly fond of it.

You sound stupid dude. It’s a tech site, and everyone here comments on tech, whether they use it or not. I’m an Apple product user, and I think that design looks pretty bad, the Note 10’s looks better.
