Apple iPhone XS and XS Max review: Pricey but future-proof


For better or worse, the iPhone XS Max is just a massive iPhone XS. That's great in some ways: its 6.5-inch display is fantastic for watching videos and lining up photos, and there's a much better battery here, too. That said, only a few app and...

First-rate build quality ; Excellent performance ; Helpful camera improvements ; iOS 12 is fantastic ; Slightly more durable than the iPhone X

Still very expensive ; Minute design changes mean old cases might not fit well ; Incremental battery gains

But we need to circle back to our original question: Are either of these new iPhones must-own devices? The answer really depends. If you splurged on an iPhone X last year, you could easily skip out on this generation -- and maybe even the next one --...

The XS Max compared to the iPhone XR: Most of us should just buy the cheaper one


Apple's most premium iPhone of 2018 feels like a splurge.

The iPhone XS Max has a big, brilliant display and a little more battery life than the XS. It benefits from the improvements that the XS also has: faster speeds, some durability and water resistance improvements, better camera and dual-SIM support.

It's so, so, so expensive. If the iPhone Plus models were too big for your hands, this one will be, too.

The supersize iPhone XS Max crams a 6.5-inch screen and all of the same great features of the iPhone XS into a Plus-size body -- but it's not as huge a leap up as you might think.

Bottom Line: The iPhone XS Max is the best expression of Apple's smartphone philosophy so far, with a giant, gorgeous screen connecting you to everything.

Apple iPhone XS Max Smartphone Review


Maximum. The iPhone XS Max is Apple's largest and most expensive iPhone yet. However, Apple has not brought as many new features to the party as many would have liked. Find out in our review whether bigger and faster is enough for the iPhone XS Max to...

great, incredibly bright display ; impressive cameras ; lightning quick Face ID unlock ; easy to use ; fast system performance ; premium case ; precise GPS ; good battery life

the case quietly creaks when twisting the device ; the SoC throttles under sustained load ; speakers sound worse at maximum volume ; no fast charger or 3.5 mm jack adapter included ; extremely expensive

The Apple iPhone XS Max is the ideal device for anyone who has wished for a huge iPhone. Then there are iOS 12’s great new features that are, invariably, tied to Apple’s ecosystem. Many of iOS 12’s new features offer little for those who do not use...

iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS Review: The Max Steals the Show


The iPhone XS is faster and takes better pictures than its predecessor, but the iPhone XS Max hogs the spotlight with its ginormous 6.5-inch display.

For those sticking with the iPhone, many will prefer the cheaper iPhone XR, which offers nearly all of the great features in the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max for $749/£749. But if you want a superior OLED display, dual rear cameras and less bezel, I'd...

iPhone XS Max camera review: An easy-to-use camera that won't fail (or amaze) you


The iPhone XS Max has an easy-to-use camera that won't ever really fail you, but it's also not the best at anything.

Great color ; On spot exposure ; High detail ; Portrait mode above average ; Super simple camera app (it just works)

Lackluster HDR and overall dynamic range ; Video image stabilization could be improved ; Bad selfie elements ; Some settings not accessible via camera app
