Android Central says “The cheapest iPhone has a more powerful processor than the most expensive Android phone”. Yup… the $399 iPhone SE kicks the ass of every Android phone by a mile, and then some. Including Samsung’s top of their line, Galaxy S20 Ultra starting at a whopping $1,399 !!! And shockingly, that’s not a typo. A Samsung phone that costs $1,000 more, gets creamed by Apple’s cheapest iPhone.
Embarrassing… Almost makes me wanna cry for Android.

It’s really really f-ugly for Android. Apple’s silicon is years ahead of everyone. It’s stunningly embarrassing for everyone else.
