To be sure, they both have fantastic features that make one want to buy either of them without thinking twice. What are these features?
Well, in this article, we are examining the different features of these models, thus helping you choose the best.
Of course, you can’t enjoy your device when the battery life is nothing to write home about. Everyone has been talking about the battery life of iPhones, that it isn’t really pretty friendly since it doesn’t last long for them. However, there is an increase of 30-90 minutes longer battery life on the two devices – this fact was proven by Apple.
So, the stagnancy of the battery life of iPhones has really been improved on these two.
Let’s carefully summarize these two against the replaced iPhone X.
- iPhone X -2716mAh
- iPhone XS – 2800mAh
- iPhone XS Max – 3400mAh
One thing that makes them different from iPhone X is that they both have faster wireless charging. Concerning the term, ‘faster wireless charging’, Apple didn’t specifically tell us what it means. However, we are sure that there has been an improvement.
There is no doubt about the chip Apple installed on the new iPhones. This chip is seen to be super-powerful, better than the iPhone X. This is called the A12 Bionic, which has replaced the A11 Bionic of the former iPhone.
With 7-nanometer chip, according to Apple, these devices are capable of performing ‘a whopping 5 trillion operations per second’. With the increase in graphics performance, the A12 has risen to 50% compared to the 30% A11. Also, while the device is idle, it saves up to 50% power efficiency. Users have talked about iPhones’ inability to load heavy games. Apple now deems it fit to ask some game developers in Cupertino, California to demonstrate how these new devices can load heavy games without worrying about anything.
A Super-Smart Camera
This time, Apple went deep into the weeds to describe the super-smart cameras of the iPhones. They both have large image processors designed to perform a trillion operations on every pic taken. These super-smart cameras are also designed to identify the faces of individuals and reduce what they call ‘redeye’. With the introduction of the HDR, these devices are capable of combining multiple shots taken differently, at different times.
During the stage display of the devices, they mentioned the word ‘bokeh’; yes you can adjust the background bokeh when shots are taken on portrait mode. The front cameras of both phones have seen improvement in contrast to the former iPhones, in that they are twice faster.
Display Size of iPhones XS and XS Max
Apple did them justice; the new devices have their sizes larger than others. The XS device has a 5.8 inch OLED display while the XS Max has a 6.5 inch OLED display. This attests to the fact that XS Max has the largest display size Apple has brought to the digital world so far.
Prices of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max
Of course, I understand you’ve been anticipating the prices of these two devices. Well, these are the most expensive iPhones Apple has ever made in its history. With their high storages ranging from 64GB to 512GB, their prices are also high.
- The iPhone XS 64GB is sold at $999, 256GB is sold at $1,149, and 512GB is sold at $1,349.
- The iPhone XS Max 64GB is sold at $1,099, 256GB is sold at $1,249, and 512GB is sold at $1,449.
Well, these prices are before the sales tax, and those living outside the US will be expected to pay more. The price for users living in Europe is around $2,000. But the price is far expensive compared to those living in South America and India. When we weigh these prices against iPhone X, we can conclude that they are far expensive. For instance, the iPhone X 246GB is sold for $1,149. In comparison, therefore, these two iPhones are the most expensive ever.
Speaking on the launch, Nitalks.com John stated that buying either of these devices is cool. However, there is nothing much to expect from these devices if you are a user of the 8 Plus or X.
