Apple iPhone XS Max is the larger variant of the iPhone XS and the successor of the iPhone X which was launched last year. This is one of the new Apple devices that captured a lot of attention from fans when it was announced this month.
Apart from the massive screen size of the iPhone XS Max, another significant improvement that stands this device out from previous flagships is the inclusion of A12 processor with a 7 nm architecture, a dual rear camera, big battery and dual-SIM support.
In this article by Naijaknowhow, we will be exploring everything starting with the unique design, features and complete specs of Apple iPhone XS Max (iPhone Ten S Max)!
Let’s get underway!
Apple iPhone XS Max Quick Review!
The iPhone XS Max look elegant with firm stainless steel design. The front is wrapped in glass which is claimed to be the most resilient compared to all smartphones on the market today. The iPhone XS Max has the IP68 dust and water resistant certification just like the iPhone XS, increased from the previous series which carried IP67 certification. This means that users can submerge them in water to a depth of 2 meters for 30 minutes.
The most significant difference between both variants (XS Max and XS) is the display size. iPhone XS Max uses a bezel-less design like the previous iPhone X but has a difference in screen size when compared to the iPhone XS. The iPhone XS Max has a 6.5-inch screen with a resolution of 2688×1242 pixels, while the iPhone XS has a smaller screen with a size of 5.8 inches with a resolution of 2436×1125 pixels.
The screen quality of the iPhone XS Max is equally compelling utilising an OLED-type Super Retina display with a 458ppi pixel density level that is equipped with Dolby Vision and HDR10 technology.
In the area of performance, the iPhone XS Max increased significantly by relying on the A12 Bionic processor. If explained, in one processor there are 4- GPU cores, 6- CPU cores, and Neural Engine. Each CPU core on the A12 Bionic is claimed to be able to run a program 15 percent faster and 40 percent better energy efficiency than its A11 predecessor on the iPhone X, while the GPU is 50 percent better.
Shifting to the camera section, iPhone XS Max is equipped with two dual rear cameras with 12MP wide-angle camera configuration (1.4 microns pixels with f / 1.8 openings) and 12MP telephoto camera (f / 2.4 openings with 2x optical zoom), which reinforced with True Tone flash. On the front side, users can take a selfie with a 7MP camera. The sensor is claimed to be faster and openings f / 2.2. With Image Signal and Neural Engine technology, selfie results can be maximized.
Another impressive thing about the iPhone XS Max is the battery. The iPhone XS Max has a battery that is claimed to be 90 minutes longer than the iPhone X and 60 minutes longer than the iPhone XS variant. The iPhone XS Max was also supported by a dual SIM card with DSDS technology (Dual SIM Dual Standby). iPhone XS Max also comes in three storage units — 64GB, 256GB and 512GB memory.
