Familiar would be an understatement when comparing iPhone XS design to that of iPhone X as they look exactly the same. They have the same shape, frame and even footprint (143.6x70.9x7.7mm). It still stands as one of the best design of iPhones in that the iPhone 11 range did not deviate so much from this look. Unlike the iPhone Xs Max which was much larger and felt thicker, the smaller iPhone XS model is able to fit more comfortably into one’s hand and even have a decent curved exterior. There is still no headphone jack at the bottom of the phone while the speaker is placed next to the lightning port. The hardiness of iPhone Xs has also been upgraded over that of iPhone X and is now able to give out the strongest protection.
Without throwing any type of shade, iPhone XS has a slightly better quality screen over iPhone X. It does build on the OLED Panel from the iPhone X and even has a similar resolution of 2436x1125 but has registered improvements in terms of dynamic range display which is boosted to 60% and therefore makes HDR 10 and Dolby Vision to be more appealing. This
Game lovers will get to enjoy the peaks of a larger display as there is very little that this phone cannot be able to handle. It is one of the impressive displays in the market while having superb color accuracy feature.
The speaker that is placed next to the lightning port is able to fire out sound downwards and create another mood. Apple has been able to upgrade the sound speakers to be more expansive which is equally a good thing. Both speakers fire left and right depending on what is being played. The volume and clarity of music and voice are also good enough to declare that this phone can be the standalone speaker when there are no other options.
iOS 12 Performance
iPhone X, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max all share the much-described iOS 12 which is upgradable to iOS 14 and has aesthetically appealing widgets and displays along with a beautiful lock screen. The three main highlights that have been featured include Fun emoji to play with, speed improvements and handy group notifications.
There is a Home Kit App which offers a seamless connection between the App and your home appliances provided that they are smart. Emojis have been made larger in size and the stickers are bigger. Messaging will be much fun with emoji’s that best explain your idea and bring out humor. Siri has been made the best personal assistance not only can you ask her normal questions but also request her to access third party Apps.
It is powered by a powerful Apple A12 Bionic (7 nm) chipset and an able Hexa-core (2x2.5 GHz Vortex + 4x1.6 GHz Tempest). This will enable you to perform heavy-duty tasks such as gaming. You can enjoy feeding in your social media accounts without lags and overheating. It is battery efficient. Replying to emails, browsing, gaming, streaming, and watching your videos can be done easily.
It is a tough nut to crack when you get to differentiate between iPhone X’s camera and that of this phone. Both appear to be very similar and offer a dual 12MP rear sensor which includes a telephoto lens that is used for zooming and a wide-angle lens. Both cameras on the two different phones also have optical image stabilization to improve the video. The size of pixels has however been increased to create room for greater light sensitivity and low light photography. Smart HDR has also been added to this mix.
Flipping the camera to the front will reveal a front 7MP TrueDepth camera that is two times the speed of iPhone X. Features that are included with the selfie camera include the IR camera and dot projector which are used to take advantage of Face ID. Just as what we saw in iPhone XS Max, the camera’s device is easy to use and is easy to flip through the two zoom lens. The camera can further record up to 1080pixels@30fps video footage for casual use.
The new 2658 mAh, a non-removable battery is slightly an improvement from that of iPhone X but still lagging behind as compared to the likes of Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21 Plus which are its competitors. Fast charging is enabled at 15W and it gets the phone to 50% in 30 minutes.it has an endurance rating of 72 hours which when coupled with the power-efficient operating system, gives you up to 14 hours talk time, and up to 60 hours of music play. Other than USB Power Delivery 2.0 you can also charge it with Qi wireless charging. Go for that adventure without the need to frequently recharge.
Connectivity options that are included in the device are :WLAN- Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, hotspot, Bluetooth- 5.0, A2DP, LE,GPS- with A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, QZSS,USB- Lightning and USB 2.0
Are you that kinda person that likes to tag along with your phone in the shower as you sing along to whatever melodies you feel like as per your moods. If that’s so then iPhone XS is just the phone for you. It is water-resistant to certain amounts of liquids which is similar to the likes of iPhone 11.
A 64 GB ROM as internal storage is just so much more than you can ask for. The phone allows you to have more space for your Apps, games, videos, music, and documents. This eliminates the need to frequently free up space from your device. You can store more and delete less of your favourites. The same variants can be found on iPhone XR and iPhone 11.
