Faster as far as benchmarks only? XS/XR are faster phones than the S/N 10 in benchmarks but were slower in opening numerous apps and keeping apps in the background aka everyday usage. I dont dislike Apple, I used their hardware every day at work and pretty excited to use the new iPad OS. I own a 6th gen iPad. As a tablet, the iPad blows Android. Just prefer what Android offers in a phone that fits in my pocket nicely. It's my everything device.
