    The Apple chips in iPhones actually outperform Qualcomm's chips on benchmarks most of the time.

    I'm fully aware of that, but the ram, displays, etc... are terrible.

    Yeah, but iOS uses less ram than Android. Also, the Samsung made OLED screen in the iPhone X is pretty good, it isn't as good as the displays that are in the Galaxy S8 and Note 8. But yeah, the displays in older models like the iPhone 7 and 8 are pretty bad.

    10% less demand for ram isn't a good reason to use 25-50% less ram...

    Yeah, you're right. I'm a power user, I will never buy an iPhone.
