    What is the point of this comparison? The Xbox is essentially a PC. The phone is tiny, you can’t fit the internals of an Xbox into a phone. What did you expect?

  2. I never thought I’d see this day but it’s finally happened! A iPhone can compete with a console! 💯💯💯💯


    considering iphone primary function isnt for gaming, its still impressive that it can run a AAA game with its thermal limitations and slim form factor

    What about the overheating and throttling claims on the iPhone 15 Pro/Max? Any truth to that?

    It's a great start for the iPhone. It will only get better from now on.

    Wouldn't it be better to compare the latest iPhone to an ASUS ROG, a Samsung S23 Ultra, or a Lenovo Legion phone? Also, if you're injecting a cloud version of a game you could also compare the local version of the game on iPhone as compared to the GeForce Now version running on iPhone.

    You didn’t even use metal effect super resolution nor customise the settings other than cranking the resolution up, this showdown seems pointless.

  10. You don’t want to touch the switch? Clearly you haven’t played Nintendo’s exclusives. Game design over graphics any day.

    Why would you compare a cloud based game to locally running ones?

    Funny how the less power the device has the better the games it has.
    (Power is nothing when the quality sucks!)
