"A notch better than" nghĩa là gì?

“A notch better than (someone or something)” = một mức độ tốt hơn -> tốt hơn đáng kể (không quá nhiều).

Ví dụ
No way is the iPhone notch better than that. It's ugly but not close to iPhone notch ugly.

The core model (mô hình cốt lõi) with standards (estimation (10)) tracks (theo dõi) the actual ratings for June 2001 quite well, with an average absolute error (sai số tuyệt đối) of just 1.4 notches (mức), about half a notch better than the core model without standards.

I sit back with a feeling of having been invited to a damn good dinner party, one of them with good wine and good conversations (trò chuyện) – and goes even home with a little food for thought. – “Blame (trách cứ) our parents for later in life even to acknowledge that we are not a notch better?”

Other countries finishing further back were Mongolia (81st), Malaysia (82nd), Vietnam (83rd), Indonesia (84th), China (94th), Laos (104th), Cambodia (106th), and Myanmar (133rd). Overall, Taiwan finished in the same spot as in last year's report, which was one notch better than its 26th-place ranking in 2018.
