The only question is how good its 6.1-inch LCD display will look compared to the OLED on Xs».

The display on the iPhone was the best X, Xs and Xs Max has kept this trend, but «the statement of Apple about support HDR10 and Dolby Vision is a bit reckless display becomes brighter, but the picture is not comparable with HDR on TV.»

The reviewer from the New York Times, Brian X. Chen believes that «none of the new phones did not made huge technological leaps since last year.» iPhone Xs Max excellent for use as a Navigator in the car and flip the tape in Instagram, and Xs for photos.

I still think the Xs is a better fit for most people, but many of them will enjoy Xs Max.

Brian encourages to try the new iPhone before buying.

Scott Stein, author of CNET, is convinced that the updated iPhone X makes no sense, and the hit of this year will make $ Xr: «If you have the money and you love big screen — Xs-Max your option. I wouldn’t spend so much on the phone.»

The journalist noted that according considerably improved dual camera, superior iPhone X, especially in conditions with poor lighting. Significantly faster processor and face ID.

Matthew Panzarino TechCrunch compared the speed of iPhone X and Xs in the AR application the difference is noticeable, but only slightly. Most likely the developers haven’t yet adapted the software for the new processor.

Matthew believes that it is better to be updated every two years and General question about upgrading from the iPhone X is not: «iPhone Xs is focused on the millions of people who still do not use the device with the Face ID».

David Phelan in a review for the newspaper the Independent expressed the most positive emotions and were satisfied with the new products more all:

This is the best iPhone that has been made. But whether they are good enough to justify the higher price? I think, Yes.

He noted the elegant design, high build quality, a better display and cameras that copied the functions of competitors, but made them even better. David also believes that the function of dual SIM cards will not be interesting.

But at the end of his argument, Phelan still noted that the majority like iPhone Xr.

And the editor of BuzzFeed, John Paczkowski, advised to choose a smartphone and the ecosystem that you can afford.

Speaking about the camera, John said that I want to write exactly what he wrote about the iPhone 6s: «the Pictures I made with the new 12-megapixel rear camera of the iPhone 6s to look a little better than the ones I made with an 8-megapixel camera on the iPhone 6, and even my eyes can photograph to see it.»

The size of John is more like Max, «because I’m old and prefer phones the size of a calculator.»
