    I know I know I thought you understood me when I wrote that 1000$.
    If this new one goes up from XS and Max I wouldn't be surprised but please Apple don't do that.

    That’s because most people will equate smoothness to hz. The only reason the 60hz iPhone looks smoother is software being better. The OnePlus has a better display at 90hz hands down.

    Just finished watching that video @FFR ...
    I'm honestly not going to take this youtubers proclamation that 90Hz android is finally able to keep up with 60Hz ios namely in Safari vs Chrome. What a person perceives as "smoothness" is more than just refresh rate of the screen.

    He may be right tho, it's not a zero probability.

    You don’t have to.

    The one plus 7 pro is still janky even with a 90hz display. iPhone XS Max not so much at 60hz

    Well, Asus (ROG) phone is targeted for gaming. The problem for Apple is that they have too few models (no counting the sale of the older models). These models should be a swiss army knife type devices. They should be good at many things but they will rarely be able to excel at any given feature. Android smartphones can do it because they often target narrower market segments.

    WTF is this chart? The touch latency of a 6S plus was 23ms. The touch latency of X/XS is 8.3ms!

    I think I won't notice the difference on regular usage but I will definitely play games on that refresh rates. Very nice :)

    It won't, same prices maximum but I think they will be less by lets say $100.

    The FPS figure is about the motion of the UI, scrolling, etc. Videos play at whatever frame rate (24, 30, 60, etc) they already play at now.

    High frame rate in a UI is great. High frame rate on movies is, as you say, trash.

    Definitely worth skipping this year.

    It’s a holdover year until;

    - Proper Qualcomm X55 5G modems are back in the iPhone (not that I care about 5G but they are fantastic modems for all other purposes).
    - Full screen display - no notch.
    - 120Hz refresh rate at long last.
    - Possible under display fingerprint reader.

    This year, half baked 5G implementation.
    I could be wrong but there’s almost no chance the X55 will be in this years iPhone and every other modem is not up to par for a proper efficient 5G implementation.
