iPhone XS and XS Max review

Apple’s new iPhone XS and XS Max are familiar territory with two key updates: a faster processor and an upgraded camera. Oh, and the XS Max has the largest screen ever found on an iPhone. But is that enough to justify the very high cost of the best iPhones you can buy?

Correction: Nilay misspoke! The iPhone XS Max has a 6.5-inch display, not 6.8. The XS has a 5.8, and the XR has a 6.1.

  1. I am just going to wait for the iPhone 9. It’s going to be way cheaper and way better then the X series. It’s got to be because 9 comes after 8 and will have newer tech then X’s because, well it’s newer. Does that make sense? $1000 plus. That’s a quality laptop or an awesome desktop.

  2. Will buy the XS as it is smaller and a lot more sleek. The Max is so much bigger and less comfortable. The 5.8 inch display is much more bigger than my phone. I love the XS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! also I have small hands

  3. i have been considering changing my xr to a xs for the smaller size but 1 thing holding me back is the connectivity issue. has that been fixed or is it a widespread problem that alot of users are experiencing? and also i am a light-mid user, will the battery hold for a full 12 hours day?

  4. I can’t decide between the 2. The Max is really appealing because of the huge screen but I’m afraid that when it comes to daily use it might not be very practical. I’m coming from a 6s so in comparison it seems really huge. Any suggestions?

  5. hello, am a strong fan of Apple but the situation of my country won't even allow me to buy one. please who has one that is not using again and willing to give me. i will appreciate your kind gesture. i will keep posting this on every page till i get someone to help out. thanks in advance guys.

  6. ❌ Apple's latest quarter's pricing strategy was to Highly Inflate prices due to Apple's Forecast of Slowing sales ; And to make Customers Pay for their Incompetence .
    ❌ So people should Stop buying Apple Products these couple of months To make sure Apple knows Not to SCAM Consumers this way again in the future

  7. Really irritating to see reviewers like yourself (who I enjoy btw) constantly base the reviews of S models on the previous years one. Apple have been releasing S models for damn near a decade and you people still don't realise S models aren't for people who upgrade yearly. The XS is designed for those with the 6, 6S, and 7.

  8. Can you help me please ,am currently using note 8 last 14 months .can I upgrade I phone xs max .can you give me honest opinion.? Can I upgrade ? Or stay with note 8 ?? .
    Can you please reply thanks .i hope u revert
