The 2019 iPhones already win the SD 865 in terms of processor

For the price and Exynos chipset, I don't even think it's worth it.

It is rare for me to say this, but compare to S20, iPhone is suddenly value for money

Ummm..now all pre orders also will get it what.
Ohhh but i think they got some other collab also. Like with grab or something. Might consider pre-ordering there since I take grab a lot, and I was planning on getting the phone anyway. The specs look damn good!

Yes you are absolutely correct. I do envy the stability of iOS and right now, the iPhone does look like a much better choice. Unfortunately, I need a dual sim phone and there is only a few choices right now. The S20 pricing here in Singapore is definitely the scam of the decade.
And iOS has many years of updates. Sammy SG's updates are slower compared to the rest of the world and only 2 years of OS updates.

Regarding your dual SIM, consider getting eSIM from M1? The latest iPhones all support eSIM

128GB? You definitely need SD card eventually effectively turning your phone single SIM. Given that the Android OS and the preinstalled and non removable junk apps by Samsung takes up so much space.

A13 is just crazy, and with the optimization of iOS, it is a beast

I did but my company line all Stinktel. PUI!

Yeah but my SDcard is usually my prawns and movies. I usually remove the SDcard when I travel and that is fine. My Spotify saves to my internal memory and that is why 128GB is a stupid move. I did try the S20, it feels lights as hell and plasticky. I feel the S10 still has the best build quality even comparing to the Note 10 series. So yeah looks like the Note 10+ will be my last Samsung and might move to OnePlus after that. Just does not make sense with all this nonsense.

Yes those use music streaming like spotify, apple music, youtube music one needs more space if storing music at local storage...

Its the memory.. In 2020 internal 128gb is not a lot.. I keep my what's app videos, messages intact, so it eats into the base memory. How much can 128gb hold if you are also using a 108mpx camera with high resolution videos?

I think I will pick up a SD855 512gb Note 10 Plus as my last Samsung phone for 2020.

If today you need to carry 128G or more when moving around. Tomorrow you will need 512G. Storage never enough. Is how to manage it and offload to a cheaper space for those in frequent use one.

Hybrid slot. Second slot is either a sim card or micro sd
