Comparing iPhone models for talk time, screen size, and songs held

The filled spider chart below compares all primary iPhone models for talk time, screen size, and songs held. Each variable is mapped to an axis creating a 3 axis chart. Therefore, each iPhone is represented by a triangle and the triangle corners map to the phone’s capabilities for the selected variable.

As expected, newer models have greater capabilities and as a result the triangle that represents them is larger than the previous model. Over the years, iPhone screen size has not changed as much as battery life (talk time) and storage (songs held). For the selected variables, iPhones 7 and 8 have the same capabilities.

Worldwide cereal production, utilization, and stocks

The combination bar-line chart below shows worldwide cereal production, utilization, and stocks on a yearly basis. In addition, a data row is used to compare the stock levels with the utilization. To clearly show the data, which is spread over a large range, two axes are used. The left axis begins at 1800 million tonnes to amplify the delta between production and utilization.

Production has consistently been higher than utilization which leads to an increase in the available stocks. Further stock levels as a fraction of utilization have also increased slightly.
