Now we're talking, and this is a social cues thing.
For example, a discussion about airdrop - which many android users don't know they are missing - often has an android user rationalizing their existence about some other convoluted way to share images maybe offline that is still worse.
Convincing those people that specs are mere indicators and do not matter in the face of objective UX...impossible.
Really comes down to what you are optimizing for.
And to top it off, the "green bubble" person is mostly oblivious to that happening too.
