iPhone XS Vs iPhone X: What's the Difference?




<div _ngcontent-c16 = "" innerhtml = "

iPhone X changed everything. With that,

Apple
reinvented iPhone design, security and (most controversial) price we can expect to pay for a flagship smartphone. One year later, the iPhone XS pushed
this price even higher but are there enough differences to justify an upgrade?

Here's all you need to know …

iPhone XS (left) Vs iPhone X (right) Apple

Display – The Same But Better

iPhone X marked Apple's first venture in OLED monitors, and immediately put it for everyone else. Predictably, iPhone XS improves further improvements, even though you do not notice any difference in the kernel specifications:

  • iPhone XS, iPhone X 5.8-inch 19.5: 9 Format True Tone OLED, 2436 x 1125 pixels (458 ppi) , 1 000 000: 1 contrast ratio, 82.9% ratio of screen and body,

Yes, Apple has mounted an OLED panel of the same size and resolution in the iPhone XS, claiming it will deliver 60% greater dynamic range with HDR content. This is supported with Dolby Vision / HDR10 support, so you get a great opportunity to see the enhancement of images and video.

The other major change is what Apple calls "120Hz touch sensing". This should not be confused with a 120 Hz refresh rate used by the Razor phone for a brilliant steady effect. The 120 Hz touch sensor is the speed at which the phone will look for the touch input. The 60Hz panel refresh rate remains, but by responding twice as quickly to touch the input, the iPhone XS should feel more responsive than iPhone X the moment you touch it.

iPhone XS support for Dolby Vision and HDR10 makes them ideal for watching video content Apple

Although the notches remain (and are not smaller) on the iPhone XS, Apple claims Face Identification, which is within it "faster".

No concrete figure was put to the difference, and improvements are assumed to be software-based, unlike new hardware. But given Face ID on iPhone X was slower than Touch ID fingerprint detection system it replaced and we unlock our phones dozens of times a day, all improvements here are welcome.

Design – Identical Twins

When you look closely at the iPhone XS screen, it will show its upgrades over iPhone X, the same can not be said about their design:

  • iPhone XS – 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm ( 5.65 x 2.79 x 0.30 mm) and 177g ( 6.24 oz)
  • iPhone X – 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7 mm (5.65 x 2.79 x 0.30 in) and 174 g ( 6.14 oz)

Yes, a 3g (0.1 oz) weight difference is that. That said, Apple has made improvements to design, you just do not want to see them with the naked eye.

The first of these is increased IP68 water and dust resistance over IP67 certification in iPhone X. You can read about technical details here but essentially means that you can now lower your iPhone in up to three feet of water instead of one.

Next up, and equally subtle, is a 25% increase in speaker volume and stereo support – the latter as Apple's promise delivers audibly clear left and right channel. The IPhone X has surprising speakers (more than combustion, Pixel 2 stereo accessories), so this should be a welcome boost for anyone who likes to listen to podcasts on the kitchen faucet.

iPhone XS building quality remains first class, though identical to iPhone X Apple

Most reliable, and at least easy to spot, Apple's addition of dual sim support – a first for the iPhone series. The other sim is not physical, it's an eSIM but the two can work at the same time as you can share work / home or home / roaming number in a single device. eSim support is currently limited, but expect it to change quickly now, the iPhone has it.

Otherwise, the stainless steel frame will be introduced with iPhone X, and the more polarizing glass required for wireless charging (another enhanced feature I'll discuss next).

You can also buy iPhone XS in an additional color: Gold, transferred from the iPhone 8 series.

iPhone XS Color Choice – Gold is New in the Series Apple

Performance – Beats

Apple's A11 chipset (iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus) delivered the fastest performance of any phone last year and the new A12 chipset set in iPhone XS (also iPhone XS Max [19659005] and iPhone XR ) keeps it crown:

  • iPhone XS – Apple A12 & Bionic & # 39; chipset: Six Core CPU, Six Core GPU, M12 Motion Capture Processor, 4GB RAM
  • iPhone X – Apple A11 "Bionic & # 39; chipset: Six Core CPU, Six Core GPU, M11 Motion Scanner Processor, 3GB RAM

So how does this all cook? In terms of graphics, Apple is promising a leap of 50%, and another 50% in energy efficiency while idle. A 15% increase to peak performance is less impressive, but iPhone X already has power to burn.

Apple's A12 bionic chipset Apple

In terms of smart, Apple says that A12 will also deliver image enhancements (more in the "Cameras" section), while it is behind iPhone XS's previously enhanced speed enhancements with Face ID. A boost of 3GB of RAM should also help multitasking, one area where Apple has worn against rivals .

What does "Bionic" mean? It is marketing nonsense .

Additionally, the iPhone XS has "faster" wireless charging (another improvement Apple refused to define) as well as much faster 4G networks with a jump from Cat 12 to Cat 16 LTE and support from the 600MHz band.

The Cat 16 leap is significant as it will achieve potential 4G speeds on a gigabit while Cat 12 was limited to 600 Mbit. Although both speeds are unlikely to be achieved in real scenarios, it helps future proof of the iPhone XS. Useful at a time when Apple will not support 5G anytime .

For 600 MHz support, this is a really great addition. 600 MHz is a slower network band, but it is one that covers large distances and is used by networks to provide coverage to areas previously without signal. The iPhone XS is the first iPhone that supports 600 MHz, so this will be a big deal for people living in 600 MHz-only areas.

iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max shares the same optics, including the dual rear camera Apple

Cameras – New Hardware, Better Software

Apple will never admit it, but the iPhone series had fallen far behind rivals – especially Pixel 2 . But with the iPhone XS, Apple plays an "if you can not beat them, join them" strategy by imitating the image processing of Google Pixels.

What Google called HDR +, Apple has called "Smart HDR", combines the best parts of multiple photos taken at different exposures in a single image. This should improve dynamic range, a special iPhone weakness while enhancements in its portrait mode delivers a Samsung-style error jam where the iPhone XS can adjust the background color of an image after it's taken. [19659066] Apple's new Smart HDR image processing combines multiple images and takes the best parts from each Apple

For hardware, apart from new six-part lenses, there's a big upgrade in the iPhone XS you should watch:

If you need a hint, it's pixel size. 1.4 and micro; m matches Pixel 2 and larger pixels can take more light so the iPhone XS will deliver much better performance than 1.22 pixels on iPhone X.

iPhone XS Camera Enhancements Promise Much Improved Low Light Performance Apple

In the same way as last year, the iPhone XS can also take portrait photos with its front camera. This is another area where Apple has fallen behind Google, so hopefully Smart HDR goes to rescue here too. Surely Upcoming Pixel 3 looks like a much sterner test this year.

Battery Life and Charging – Incremental Improvements

iPhone X did not have a good battery life, so you'll be happy to hear that the iPhone XS has more endurance. You will be less impressed to hear that it's only "30 minutes longer", according to Apple. This is surprisingly given the A12 50% increase in efficiency while idle, and Apple should really have a larger battery:

In fact, battery life is the area where I have the most complaints with the iPhone XS. The above "faster" wireless charge is vague and does not suggest much improvement over 7.5W achieved by iPhone X. Not even close to 15W supported by the Qi standard that it uses.

iPhone XS battery life is barely improved from iPhone X Apple

Secondly, while the iPhone XS has the same fast-coupled charging as iPhone X (a 50% charge of 30 minutes from flat), Apple has still tied a slow charger with the new phone. This is remarkable when a) every rival has done this for years and b) Apple charges $ 75 for a single quick charger and compatible cable. It is outrageous.

In short: when it comes to battery life and charging, makes rivals far better .

Storage and Price – Larger but Larger

For pricing, you will find iPhone XS matches for iPhone X, even if it has a new top level, you can pay even more:

I'm still convinced that 128GB is the sweet spot for most iPhone owners, which is undoubtedly why Apple is sticking with 64GB as its point of entry. But the Americans should not complain too much, as Apple charges Europeans up to $ 2000.

iPhone XS (left) is undoubtedly less interesting than the new iPhone XS Max (middle) and iPhone XR (right) Apple [19659008]] Bottom Line

Although naming may be new, the iPhone XS is the very definition of a typical iPhone year. So while there are many smart improvements inside, from the outside, the only way to tell you that an iPhone XS is if you get the gold.

Therefore, my advice to iPhone X owners will be stuck in another year – you are not the target audience. As for those upgrading from older iPhones, I would suggest taking a long, hard look at more colorful iPhone XR . It matches the most important specifications ( but not all ) on the iPhone XS and starts at $ 750.

What if you have money to spend? So iPhone XS Max is the model for you. It has a screen to make the jaw drop and much better battery life.

Finally, this is the big problem with iPhone XS. Although undoubtedly an excellent phone, Apple has flanked it with two better alternatives and you will be smart to check them out first …
