The incredible new iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are both now available to order from Carphone Warehouse. But which one will you go for? To help you make that important decision, here’s a look at the key differences - and many similarities - between the two.
A difference in display size, not quality
Size is the most obvious difference between the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max.
The iPhone Xs Max is aptly named, because it’s enormous 6.5-inch display is the largest that’s ever been on an iPhone. The iPhone Xs, meanwhile, has a 5.8-inch display.
But in terms of display quality, the two iPhones are pretty much identical. They share the same Super Retina OLED technology, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and both pack in 458 pixels per inch.
As far as overall size and weight goes, it should come as no surprise that the Xs Max is the bigger and heavier of the two new iPhones.
iPhone Xs Max
157.5 x 77.4 x 7.7 mm
143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm
The interesting thing about the iPhone Xs Max’s size is that it’s actually shorter and thinner than last year’s iPhone 8 Plus – a device with a significantly smaller 5.5-inch display, but with much larger bezels taking up valuable inches.
A few things in common...
Yes, the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are different sizes. But apart from that, they’re remarkably similar. Here’s a rundown of all the awesome tech they share.
- Super Retina OLED display
- 12MP dual lens rear camera with f/1.8 aperture
- 7MP front-facing camera with Face iD
- 4K video recording
- A12 Bionic Chip
- 64GB, 256GB or 512GB storage options
