Dual Rear Cameras with iPhone XS and IPhone XS Max.It`s pretty normal to see that most flagship smartphones comes with two rear cameras these days. Mid-range phones usually have it but this is not the case with the new iPhone series where extra cameras reserved for more expensive models iPhone XS and XS max. These two models have two 12MP cameras. While the iPhone XR lacks second camera, it shares the same wide angle camera as other two expensive models have.
IPhone XS and Max with OLED and IPhone XR with LCD.All the Apple models came with LCD screens before the last year`s iPhone X that was the first ever iPhone that had OLED display pretty much similar to Samsung`s smart phone. Both XS models come with this better quality OLED display however iPhone XR has LCD display. So what’s` difference between OLED, obviously these are richer and look more colorful with high contrast black look. However if we look on the history Apple the LCD is not bad either it still offer excellent display but for extra quality OLED is a choice. We believe XR should not suffer too much due to this reason as Apple`s it`s best LCD screen they have every offered.
Display, Size and Colors.All the these new iPhones have same design that is inherited from last year`s iPhone X. The screens are pushed to edges with curve on the corners and front/back glass covers. With 5.8 inch screen, iPhone XS is smallest followed by the iPhone XR that has 6.1 inches and the XS Max with massive 6.5 inch screen size. The iPhone XR will be released in 5 colors while iPhone XS comes in traditional colors of grey, black and gold. The iPhone XR has aluminum sides bands while XS model has stainless steel.
No More Fingerprint Scanner.We have seen last year that iPhone X ditched finger scanning in favor of FaceID . None of these iPhones have any space for finger print scanner so it’s only FaceID now. While the iPhone X ditched finger scanning in favor of FaceID, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus kept the old design and features. Unsurprisingly, none of this year’s phones have space for a fingerprint scanner so it’s FaceID all the way.
Apple A12 Bionic Processor.In terms of specification, all of three phones have latest A12 bionic processor. It has quad core graphics chip and six cores CPU. It addition to that it is loaded with Apple`s Neural Engine for powering machine learning capabilities. It`s what we know to date is the latest technology ever available in smartphone proves Apple`s expertise in developing next generation processors. This A12 bionic processor is the first ever 7nm mobile chip based smart phone that ensure better performance with less power consumption. As a result your smart phone will be 15% faster while using 40% less power. In addition to that the graphics chip used in the processor is 50% faster than iPhone X.
RAM.Although apple does not talk much about memory, the iPhone XR probably comes with 3GB RAM as compared iPhone XS and XS Max that have been upgraded to 4GB. We believe 3GB memory is not bad, but 4GB is intended to make user experience little smoother.
Battery Life.Among all these three, the iPhone XS comes with 5.8 screen is the smallest new iPhone, while iPhone XR has 6.1 while iPhone XS Max is largest one with 6.5 inch screen. As bigger phones comes with larger batteries these last longer as well. Apple has not yet confirmed the battery life of these iPhones however they do claim iPhone XS will last 30 minutes longer than iPhone X. We believe iPhone XR seems have best battery life among them as Apple says it can playback wireless video for up 6 hrs as compared to iPhone X S Max for 15 hrs and iPhone XS for 14 hrs.
Apple`s first ever “Dual Sim” smart phone.Without any doubts, the most noticeable things about these three iPhones are that, all of them support two SIMS. Although it has been common among smartphones, it is the first time ever Apple has introduced it in its smartphone range. So why it’s beneficial? Perhaps we believe it will be helpful for the businessmen who want to keep their personal number separate from business.
