Apple iPhone XS vs iPhone X - What's New

iPhone XS, XS Max: First Impression

iPhone XS, XS Max: First Impression

Here's our take on it. The iPhone XS has a "super retina" screen size of 5.8 inches, while the XS Max's screen size is 6.5 inches, "the largest display ever on an iPhone". So large-screen iOS fans, rejoice! That said, it a big leap from the last year's chip.

We've touched upon the screen-to-body ratio above but we think this one deserves a section of its own. At $749, it offers pretty much the same level of performance as the two other 2018 iPhones.

That, for those who don't hang of every world that a black turtle-necked geek says, includes the one that they only bloody launched previous year, the last time that we all got ourselves into a similar tizz.

Luckily, the era of thick bezels is over.

According to CNBC's Todd Haselton, the 5.8-inch iPhone XS is "almost the best iPhone money can buy", and could be a good option for consumers who chose to pass up on buying the iPhone X when it was released a year ago. While consumers' desires have changed since Apple CEO Steve Jobs put a charge into the smartphone industry in January 2007, would a 6.5-inch iPhone been produced if Jobs had not succumbed to pancreatic cancer? The iPhone X was released a year ago but it had the same price as the iPhone XS so it only made sense for the company to move on. The price for the iPhone XS starts at $999 for the 64 GB model and goes up from there for 256 GB and 512 GB.

The iPhone 8 will get iOS 12, the latest version of Apple's smartphone operating system - the same software powering the iPhone XS. The iPhone XR won't be available until October 26, with preorders opening up one week before that. We've even compiled them for you. And that's not counting storage increases, which cost more, too. Its 64GB and 256GB versions clock in at Dh4,229 and Dh4,859, respectively. And yet, over the past few years Apple got everybody so used to these kind of price hikes that they nearly feel normal now. The new Apple iPhone XS also comes with the similar notch design.

With Apple stubbornly using an outdated design for its Plus models for the past few years the Galaxy Note lineup was largely unchallenged from the iOS side.

No more iPhone SE 2?

Now that pre-orders for the iPhone XS and XS Max are ongoing, it has come to light that customers eyeing the biggest prize of the lot should be ready to shell out an eye-watering Dh6,129 for the newest iPhone, which dons the company's biggest screen and highest storage to date. As for service, T-Mo's single-line limitless idea bills $70 per month.US Cell: Keep $400US Cell's deal is a limited bit completely different - and arguably basically the most convenient option now on hand, because there isn't very any alternate-in required.
