Apple iPhoneThe iPhone 11 is on the horizon, but if you are in the market for a top smartphone now, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are as good as they get. But the 6.5 inch XS Max I don't want to remove, thanks to its large screen and longer battery life, that's why it's one of the best smartphones you can buy.

The IPhone XS 5.8 inch ($999) has all the same enhancements with its super large siblings, including the faster B12 Aion processor that foils an Android phone (again), as well as a better camera with intelligent HDR and bokeh control Impressive. XS Max All Specs.

iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max Cheat Sheet
  1. The camera is better, especially in low light, and the new depth control for portraits works well.
  2. The Apple's B12 Aion Chip is once again faster than any Android phone.
  3. IPhone XS Max is more interesting than the usual iPhone XS because its larger screen is 6.5 inches and the battery life is longer.
  4. The lack of fast charging USB-C out of the box for both phones is very disappointing.
  5. IPhone XS Max and iPhone XS are worth upgrading if you have an iPhone 7 or older device, but some might prefer the cheaper iPhone XR.
Pricing and bidding iPhone XS and iPhone XS

IPhone XS starts from $999 for 64GB storage. We prefer the 128GB you get with the basic model of the Galaxy Note 9. But you can upgrade to 256GB and 512GB on iPhone XS each with $1,149 and $1,349. IPhone XS Max starts from $1,099 to 64GB, and rises to $1,249 for 256GB and $1,449 for 512GB. Yes, it's more than 13 inches MacBook Pro.

Design: Regular and Super

As someone who brings the iPhone 7 Plus 5.5 inches for over a year before switching to the iPhone X 5.8 inches, iPhone XS Max feels familiar in my hands and pockets. Notice I'm not saying that it feels great. That's because iPhone XS Max is the same size as the iPhone 7 Plus and the larger iPhone 8 Plus when it packs a larger 6.5-inch screen.

Screen: Max steals the show

Bigger and bolder than anything Apple has ever put on the phone, the iPhone XS Max OLED display is very interesting to see. Not only is it ginormous at 6.5 inches, you can use split-view mode in various Apple apps, such as Mail and calendar. The phone looks and feels more like a desktop. However, the Galaxy Note 9 can run two separate apps alongside them, including third-party applications.

Camera: Catch up (and sometimes beat) Pixel 2

If there is one area where Apple needs to upgrade the iPhone, it's his camera. Google Pixel 2 beats iPhone X on our faces, especially in low light. IPhone XS and XS Max even score with dual 12-MP cameras that have bigger and deeper pixels that allow up to 50 percent more light without sacrificing sharpness.


The A12 Bionic processor is the first 7-nanometer chip on the phone, but more importantly is what it allows. Apple claimed that the two high-performance cores in this 6-core processor were up to 15 percent faster, and that the 4-core GPU was up to 50 percent faster.

Audio: More Sweet Stereo

The audio enhancements in iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are so good that you'll think twice about connecting to Bluetooth speakers. Apple said it expanded its stereo sound to provide more detail, and I immediately appreciated the difference when I put my iPhone X and iPhone XS side by side.

Lifetime and battery charging

Based on the teardown of iPhone XS and XS Max, iPhone XS packs a 2.658 mAh battery, which is smaller than 2.716 batteries on iPhone X. iPhone XS Max has a larger capacity of 3.174 mAh, based on regulatory submissions.
