I'd just swing by the Apple store and ask them what's up. I seriously have never experienced battery life this good on any phone, Android or iPhone.100%. I keep my MacBook's USB charger in my laptop bag with a USB-C to lightning for exactly this situation.
I still charge my iPhone X more than once a day. I typically get 12 hours of use out of it, which is almost enough.
It could ship with the existing 5w and USB-A to lightning cable.
Notifications are better, yes. I'm simply saying phones are absolutely not commodities. It's ridiculous to say that, really.Let's also grow up and not act like the iphone and ios are inferior to Android in every single facet of a smartphone. Simply isn't true. Notifications and assistants, as an example, are clearly better on Android at the moment.
As a long time Apple and iphone fan I'll actually take the current user experience of Android over ios. Problem is there isn't a Android phone or smartwatch that I like at the moment.
Let's also be real, both get the job done and done very well at this point in the smartphone product cycle. It really comes down to what features you prioritize and personal preference.
If anything, you could say all Androids are commodities to each other. Even I don't believe that, but it's more relevant than saying iPhone (with iOS) is just like any Android.
