I'm beginning to understand now. And there still is a great difference 
between "better" and "preferable", which I can explain on this example 
very well:

The iPhone YZ is "better", because it is larger, faster, bigger, has 
more memory, higher quality and so one.

But the Samsung XY is "preferable", because it is able to run the 
{boQwI'} app.
