Features

Display and Design: The iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max have mindblowing, thrilling and extremely attractive designs. While previous iPhones have spoken tons of class, Apple’s latest smartphones are everything that exudes class and more. In terms of the design, the major difference between both of them is the screen display. While the iPhone XS packs a display of 5.8 inches, the iPhone XS Max packs a display of 6.5 inches; one of the largest that have crossed the world of smartphones. The huge display of the iPhone XS Max truly lives up to its name, “Max”. If you are a lover of really big phones, then you will surely not have a problem with it. Asides the size, they both share an 82.9% screen-to-body ratio and 19.5:9 aspect ratio True Tone OLED.

Apple has maintained the screen design of the iPhone X; bezels have totally been removed and the screen has been absolutely stretched to the edges of the phone, leaving out no space for a physical button like earlier models of the iPhone. Rather than the fingerprint sensor, the phone operates with a Face ID that functions from the top corner of the screen and is very effective even if the dark.

It is not surprising that they both have glass front and rears. In fact, it would have been a misnomer if it was other than that as the latest lineup of iPhones have all been built with a glass front and rear and aluminium sides. It is very spellbinding to find that the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max can accommodate two sims, a feature that is entirely new to iPhones. One of the sims is located by the normal nano-sim slot while the second one is an eSim; an innovation that Apple can take all the credit for.

While the iPhone XS Max might look way bigger than the iPhone XS, the company has maintained a commendable frame that doesn’t make any of them feel heavy to hold or carry. The intriguing comfortability while you carry it is one that matches the overwhelming feeling of affluence that it comes with.

Software and Performance: The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are spectacularly faster, swifter and more powerful, even more than expected. They are both powered by the A12 Bionic processor, a significant upgrade from the A11 Bionic processor in the iPhone X. The performance is 50% more than that of the A11 Bionic chipset. Both phones have a RAM of 4GB, which is a noteworthy step-up from the normal. Apple has obviously taken enough time to upgrade from 3GB to 4GB while new flagship Android phones have already come in as large as 6GB to 8GB RAMs. The software of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have been hugely upgraded as well, and this is one of the features that stand both Apple flagships out.

Camera: Both the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max have powerful and exciting cameras. The front camera of 7MP has an aperture of f/2.2. These are arguably some of the best phones on which you can take pictures. While iPhones generally produce clear, beautiful pictures, the outcome of pictures taken on the iPhone XS and XS Max is one that would always amaze you from time to time. Both phones have a dual rear camera with a primary lens and a secondary lens. The primary lens which has a capacity of 12MP and has features that include an aperture of f/1.8, portrait lighting, True Tone flash, and Optical Image Stabilization. On the other hand, the secondary lens has of 12MP, has an aperture of f/2.4, Optical Image Stabilization and a 2x Optical Zoom. With these camera qualities, pictures can be clearly taken in both lit up areas as well as in low-lighting conditions.

Battery Capacity: This is one feature that varies with the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. The former carries a battery capacity of 2658mAh while the latter has a higher battery capacity of 3174mAh. Both of them employ the latest wireless charging feature which is peculiar to mostly new high-end smartphones that have a glass front and rear. The wireless talk time on the iPhone XS lasts for about 20 hours while that of the iPhone XS Max lasts for as much as 25 hours. On the XS, using the internet could last you for twelve hours and thirteen hours on the XS Max. Both of them are equipped with a fast charging capacity that goes up by up to 50% in just thirty minutes.
