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.

    I tried upgrading my phone so many times but was not able to. Had so many issues with this. Then I met a friend that works as a broadband communication Rep for both Verizon and Amazon. He helped me get whatever upgrades I need for my phone. Now I can swap my phone for whatever I want it for. I’m so happy. You can contact him to help you too here’s his number 9802639361. Text him and see your communication dreams come true.

    I just bought an XS Max and I'm noticing videos(on YouTube for example) seem blurry. I thought it would be more refined and clear but it seems kind of blurry. Is this how it's normally supposed to be? I might take it back to apple to compare it to other XS Max's.

    The IPHONE XS MAX Bigger screen better display better picture and speaker sound quality? by FAR THEN PREVIOUS IPHONES IVE HAD 6+ 7+ and 8+ and this phone is by far the best


    Great review EXCEPT for the music & beat, very distracting & sometimes drowns out a word or two that could/might be important. Most have music louder than the material/speaker, fancy, but unnecessary!

    Does anyone has also problems with the “tap to wake” or “raise to wake” feature? I sold my iPhone xs just because of that. It’s just too sensitive when using the iPhone. I like to grab my phone without the screen turning on all the time. I think i just gonna buy the samsung galaxy s10 with fingerprint reading. I used iPhone for a couple of years now, but just those two features are holding me back to use the xs.

    The fact that Apple can't release this in an iPhone 6, or even better.. iPhone 5 size. It makes me sad. I want small phones, but to get a fast phone today.. it apparently has to be a big pe**s enlarger.
