Not having fun with watching movies because of your iPhone’s narrow screen? Thinking of upgrading to phones with bigger and wider screen display?
Then, you should check out iPhone Xs Max! It has a 6.5 inches display, and it’s the biggest smartphone released by Apple, so far. It is crafted with Stainless Steel and Glass that are also available in three different colors—gold, space grey, and silver. The iPhone Xs Max is powered by OLED Super Retina Screen panels which turn up HDR with a sharper display, accurate colors, and notable brightness and contrast.
You’d be shocked to see that the photographs look so natural and subtle in your eyes through their enhanced True Tone feature.
In addition, it has the biggest internal storage so far, with 512 GB; breaking the records of all Apple’s smartphones. However, all good things come at a price, and the iPhone XS Max is no different. Also, we don’t find the price of 64 GB and 256 GB internal storage to be practical. The thought is, Android phones have long had internal storage as big as that and the slight difference in screen size did not do justice to its price.
On the other hand, it has pretty much ticked off every flagship basic: almost bezel-less screen, high pixel density, good front and rear camera with Depth Control, Faster Wireless Charging, and a 4GB RAM.
iPhone Xs Max Build and Design
After the iPhone X was recalled, Apple came back this year with its new smartphones, iPhone Xs Max (6.5″) together with its smaller brother, iPhone Xs (5.8”).
The frame of the new iPhone Xs Max is made mostly with stainless steel, and a Corning Gorilla scratch- free glass; a 180-degree turn from iPhone 8s Plus’ Aluminum glass. Moreover, it is now splash, dust, and water resistant. Good job Apple for catching up.
And through its Oleophobic coating, the screens are fingerprint-free. Can you believe that?
The iPhone 8 Plus’ A11 Bionic Chipset was completely overthrown by A12 Bionic Chipset when it comes to speed and performance. And the later first appeared in iPhone XS, iPhone XS MAX, and iPhone XR, which also operates in a hexa-core CPU for a faster and more battery efficient system.
Performance-wise, having a 4GB RAM is not too impressing at all when compared to other Android phones that aced the contest in RAM into 8GB.
But it’s dual sim feature caters both nano and e-sims, besting other Android phones.
If you’re a selfie addict, you’re gonna like how the iPhone Xs Max offers 12 megapixels rear camera and 7 megapixels front camera.
We are amazed by the captured pictures that looked like it’d pop out of the screen because of the improvement in the TrueDepth dual camera system. It made possible smart adjustments in your selfies’ depth.
The bokeh or background blur really brought life out of the picture.
The FACE ID in iPhone XS MAX also has better algorithms that perform faster and safer.
Honestly, the specs between Xs and Xs Max doesn’t differ much. However, if you like to have a wider view in your phone, and you think it’s within your budget, then, by all means, go for the iPhone Xs Max.

Unlocking iPhone Xs Max: So, does size really matter?
The iPhone Xs Max and iPhone Xs don’t have that much difference at all when it comes to performance and the camera system. For a slightly bigger screen, there’s a $100 difference, and for us, that might not be the wisest choice. Bigger doesn’t always mean better all the time.
