"an iPhone will last about twice as long as most Android devices"
That'll be because you can only afford to replace it half as often.

"SoC in Android land is two years behind Apple's"
That may well be the case, but what does an Apple do noticeably or significantly faster as a result compared to say my Nokia 6.1. I mean, it's a phone, you'll be doing phone calls, texts, emails and reminders/calendar stuff mostly. I doubt you're developing ray-traced 3d graphics on it.
"mostly voted out so they could kick out anyone called Mohammed"
Mostly because in the 1975 referendum we were told it was a simple trading agreement. Then Major signed the Maastricht treaty which basically converted the EEC "trading agreement" into the EU, forcing it through with a three line whip and no mandate from the people. Then Bliar promised a referendum on the EU Constitution/Lisbon treaty then didn't hold one.
The 2016 referendum was the first time the people had been given a vote on membership of "ever closer union" and the majority of those who voted said no.
Maybe if Major or Bliar or even the 1975 referendum had been a bit more honest with the people then we wouldn't be in this mess.
"Just stop using Amazon. It is that simple."
Oh if it were that simple. I spent a few hours a couple of weeks ago trying to buy mothballs (for clothes moths). I tried all the big brand supermarkets in town (we have all 4) plus diy stores & the "we sell everything" stores. No luck, I might as well have been trying to buy leopard's fanny batter.
Ended up going to Amazon.
Basically if the shops don't sell it we can't buy it.
I concur with that. Reminds me of 2 or 3 years ago whe the MD of the company I was working for ordered top of the range MacbookAirs for all the directors at around 2k a pop (plus dongles). Within the month all but him and his trusty sidekick had handed them back in and asked for their old laptops back.
£90 a month on a personal computer????
You must be mad, or renting it. I'd wager that "most of us here" built our own computers for about £90 total, probably a number of years ago.
And if I were stupid enough to pay £1500 for a phone I would expect an all risks new for old swap out lifetime warranty.
