Google says that they could crawl a site exactly like any other browser however it is not true and we have empiric results that it shows the opposite. Google indexes a site with JS but it doesn't works at fullest.

Google could indeed a javascript-generate site but Google said (officially) it takes more works.

Also, Google could misunderstand a site, such as a site that it's cheating but Google doesn't tell you about it.

Also, Google recommends using schema/noscript for lazy loading images and it hurts SEO. But Google also says that lazy loading is ok as is, so it is misleading.

So Google is full of half lies, especially since they are shuffling algorithms but they are not telling us about it.

I believe that due to the fact that Google's algorithms are closed, in terms of SEO, we can either rely on own/others' experiments, or on the statements of Google's stuff.
