"iPhone 13" is the latest phone of the American company "Apple", and is considered by many of the company's supporters as the best smartphone ever made, but even so, this phone lacks - according to the "Toms Guide" website. (Toms guide) on tech issues - to features that have become standard in the Android world for a while, and that's not just about the ability of Android phones to emulate Game Boy games.

Here are some things that - quite simply - Android phones do better than the iPhone 13:

It's amazing to know that the $999 iPhone 13 Pro has a maximum wired charging speed of 20W, but when you take a quick look at other Android phones we find the OnePlus 9 and the Asus ROG Phone 5 ( Asus ROG Phone 5) have a charging speed of 65W. The Huawei Mate XS has a charging speed of 55W, which is more than twice the speed of what the latest iPhone phones support. At the top of the list is the Xiaomi Mi phone 10 Ultra" (Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra) which has an impressive charging rate of 120W.

Although Apple might argue that fast charging will degrade a phone's battery over time, even then, being able to quickly top up your phone's battery before you leave the door is a hugely useful feature.

Fast refresh rate screens are standard

Tom's Guide says it's baffling that the $699 "iPhone 13 mini" still - in 2021 - has a 60-hertz screen.

Some reports mention that the crisis caused by the Corona pandemic led to problems in manufacturing;

Because of this, Apple was forced to prioritize the use of the "refresh rate" screens for the higher models "iPhone 13 Pro" and "iPhone 13 Pro Max".

But regardless of the reason, the loser in the end is the iPhone consumer.

In contrast, to a large extent, every high-end Android phone comes with a fast-refreshing display, whether it is 90 hertz or 120 hertz, even the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, the most budget-friendly and has been It was introduced last year and had a 120Hz screen.

Some gaming phones, such as the Asus ROG Phone 5, feature a 144Hz screen.

In-screen fingerprint sensor

Even among Apple loyalists, one of the biggest disappointments with the iPhone 13 launch was the lack of Touch ID or a fingerprint sensor.

Since the iPhone X, Apple has opted not to use touch metrics in favor of more sophisticated Face ID technology.

Although Apple might argue that its approach is more secure, the company's proponents nonetheless find that pointing the phone constantly at each authentication process is annoying.

On the other hand, fingerprint recognition technology built into the screen has become standard on Android devices.

The latest Samsung Galaxy S21 has a fingerprint recognition feature under the screen, and the new Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 has a thin fingerprint button on the side of the phone that easily unlocks.

With people still wearing masks these days due to the Corona pandemic, having another way to unlock an iPhone would be a welcome addition.

Better Zoom Features

iPhone 13 tops the list of the best camera smartphones in Tom's Guide tests.

According to the site, the 12-megapixel sensor that Apple has been sticking to with the past few generations produces accurate images with rich detail, but at the expense of some other advantages, namely zoom.

By sticking to the 12MP sensor, the resolution is lower when capturing the image.

Apple engineers may argue that fewer pixels in a small sensor means more light can be absorbed by each pixel, but now there are new technologies that can allow a group of pixels to absorb light together to form one large pixel, as is the case with the ISOCELL GN5 camera sensor ( The new ISOCELL GN5) from Samsung.

In terms of lenses, the iPhone 13 has a standard lens set, and this limits the phone to a 3x optical zoom.

But if Apple used a periscope lens that stacks the glass horizontally instead of vertically, as is the case with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, it might be able to achieve the 10x optical zoom that Samsung users now enjoy.

Screen without top notch

When Apple introduced the “notch” - which includes the front camera and the face sensor - for the first time in the iPhone X in 2017, a group of Android phone manufacturers followed suit with holes for the cameras at the top of the screen, but quickly Android phone manufacturers began to phase out the notch inserted in The screen versus the use of a camera hole or even the technology of cameras under the screen. But after 4 years, Apple continued to use the "notch" and array of facial recognition sensors. This ultimately makes the elegant iPhone 13 look outdated compared to other Android devices.

Of course, Apple supporters would argue that the "notch" is necessary because current under-screen camera technology is mediocre and facial biometric recognition is best for security.

But when phones like the OnePlus 7 Pro have a notch-less display thanks to the front camera being placed in a pop-up mechanism from the top of the device, it shows there's still a lot Apple could have done to get rid of the "notch." on its screens.

In the tech world, Apple's Lighting port resembles some of the relics that were once miles better than the USB equivalent, but have now been outdone at everything, according to Tom's Guide.

And Apple won't simply get rid of this Lightning cable, even though it has switched to a USB-C cable in the MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and iPad Pro ( iPad Pro) and iPad mini 6. This means diehard Apple fans will need to bring two sets of cables with them when traveling, which is a hassle.

In contrast, Android devices switched to the "USB-C" standard years ago, and have adhered to it since then, and it has become a global standard and works easily across various devices.

As for the Lightning standard, it is simply "arrogance" from Apple, according to Tom's Guide.
