meaning and clarity

D for me is the ontly that conveyed those

The other options distort the meaning completely, suggesting not that the ip do something less two areas but the areas per se are distincted from what the ip could do

since is the only correct choice here since the last part of the sentence is an agrument supporting the preceding conclusion. Thus d.

OA to come later with explanations
A) excepting for the areas of multi-tasking and phone call quality as
This choice uses incorrect idiom – excepting for.
B)with the exception of the areas of multi-tasking and phone call quality where
This choice has modifier error since the noun “areas” is modified using “where”. If area were used in the context of place, then this usage would have been correct. But in this sentence, “areas” is not used as place. It is used to imply “features”.
C) except in the areas of multi-tasking and phone call quality that
This choice distorts the meaning of the original sentence. As with the original sentence. it states that iPhone has certain shortcomings. But instead of giving reasons for why these are indeed shortcomings, this choice uses the expression “that one cannot run multiple…” to describe the areas.
D) with the exception of the areas of multi-tasking and phone call quality since
Correct Choice
E) except in the areas of multi-tasking and phone call quality
This choice has two errors:
1: Clauses not connected – the two clauses “iPhone…3 years” and “with the exception…interruption” are not connected properly.
2: Meaning – this choice completely changes the intended meaning. The sentence implies that iPhone is good with everything. Then it states that one cannot run multiple applications at the same time anywhere else except in the areas of multi-tasking and phone call quality. This is non-sensical.

Since is used with has/have.
Here it is used otherwise...
How can we make out the usage of since?

D is the least worst I would say. It isn't clear at all, should be except in the areas, we need a preposition, we can't just say except the areas. Guys like Vercules would be furious at questions such as this one
