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 --...

iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR


We'd recommend the iPhone XR first, but here's what the XS brings to the table.

The iPhone XS has a markedly improved dual camera, delivering better photos than the iPhone X in both dark and high-contrast environments. It has a faster processor, faster face ID, adds dual-SIM support and it’s now available in gold and 512GB versions.

Its battery life is the shortest of the three new iPhones and only incrementally better than last year's. Despite its still-rich price tag, increased storage, USB-C fast chargers and headphone dongles will have you spending even more.

While we'd still recommend the iPhone XR first, the XS has some extras worth noting.

Apple iPhone XS


The Apple iPhone XS is a significant step forward for iPhones, but most iPhone buyers will probably prefer the XR or the XS Max.

Excellent camera. Powerful processor. Fast networking. First mainstream dual-SIM phone in the US.

Expensive for the size and feature set.

Bottom Line: The Apple iPhone XS is a significant step forward for iPhones, but most iPhone buyers will probably prefer the XR or the XS Max.

Apple iPhone XS vs Apple iPhone X


Apple shook things up last year with the introduction of the iPhone X, a phone that ushered the company into a new era of smartphone design. Its successor, the iPhone XS, is naturally superior in almost every imaginable way. Then again, its launch begs...
