iPhone XS review: A solid upgrade to a great phone | Trusted Reviews

 

iPhone XS review: iPhone XS is arguably the most iterative iPhone to date but it's still worth considering, provided you can swing the high asking price.

Top-notch performance ; Phenomenal cameras ; Outstanding display ; Attractive design

Hard to spot some of Apple's improvements ; Starting price is far too high ; No fast charger in-box ; Scratches easily

Not a huge upgrade over the iPhone X, but a good choice if you're stuck on an older iPhone and fancy something new.

Apple iPhone XS and XS Max review: Pricey but future-proof

 

For better or worse, the iPhone XS Max is just a massive iPhone XS. That's great in some ways: its 6.5-inch display is fantastic for watching videos and lining up photos, and there's a much better battery here, too. That said, only a few app and...

First-rate build quality ; Excellent performance ; Helpful camera improvements ; iOS 12 is fantastic ; Slightly more durable than the iPhone X

Still very expensive ; Minute design changes mean old cases might not fit well ; Incremental battery gains

But we need to circle back to our original question: Are either of these new iPhones must-own devices? The answer really depends. If you splurged on an iPhone X last year, you could easily skip out on this generation -- and maybe even the next one --...

iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR

 

We'd recommend the iPhone XR first, but here's what the XS brings to the table.

The iPhone XS has a markedly improved dual camera, delivering better photos than the iPhone X in both dark and high-contrast environments. It has a faster processor, faster face ID, adds dual-SIM support and it’s now available in gold and 512GB versions.

Its battery life is the shortest of the three new iPhones and only incrementally better than last year's. Despite its still-rich price tag, increased storage, USB-C fast chargers and headphone dongles will have you spending even more.

While we'd still recommend the iPhone XR first, the XS has some extras worth noting.

Apple iPhone XS

 

The Apple iPhone XS is a significant step forward for iPhones, but most iPhone buyers will probably prefer the XR or the XS Max.

Excellent camera. Powerful processor. Fast networking. First mainstream dual-SIM phone in the US.

Expensive for the size and feature set.

Bottom Line: The Apple iPhone XS is a significant step forward for iPhones, but most iPhone buyers will probably prefer the XR or the XS Max.

Apple iPhone XS review: The safe update

 

As with all iPhone "S" model upgrades, the iPhone XS is about bringing new processing power to a phone that already looks really good.

Faster processor ; New camera features ; Tougher glass build

Design hasn't changed ; Not a necessary upgrade for iPhone X users ; No fast charger in the box

As with all iPhone "S" model upgrades, the iPhone XS is about bringing new processing power to a phone that already looks really good. The Apple iPhone XS offers a faster experience, a tougher shell, and a much better improved camera that really...

Apple iPhone XS review: Astonishment at a price

 

At the end of the day, this is Apple's best and most-expensive iPhone yet. Take it or leave it.

Incredible design ; Snappy performance

Battery life still lags ; Expensive

Apple iPhone Xs review: It's less expensive and more basic, but is the Xs the best iPhone of 2018?

 

Like all Apple products, the Xs is far from cheap - although Amazon has just brought the price down

Faster than the iPhone X ; Great camera and superb video recording ; New gold colour looks fantastic

Pricey for a 5.8in smartphone

It's certainly worth considering as an alternative to the iPhone Xs Max alongside the Galaxy S9, although the S9 is a lot cheaper than both the Mate 20 Pro and the iPhone Xs.

Google Pixel 3 vs Apple iPhone Xs: Battle of the flagships

 

We pitch Google's new Pixel 3 smartphone against its main competitor, the Apple iPhone Xs

That price difference puts the Pixel 3 in a very strong position. For £200 less than its Apple rival, we’d be willing to cut the Pixel 3 a little slack – and frankly, given what we’ve seen so far, it looks like we might not need to. Our advice? Wait...
