SSR! iPhone XS MAX vs iPhone X: Should you upgrade?

While I was a huge fan of almost area in the iPhone X, next to the iPhone 8 Plus it was clear that battery life couldn’t match up. When Apple announced the iPhone XS Max, my one desire was a battery to match the size.

iPhone X was 2017’s flagship iPhone and marked a significant leap forward in functionality, as well as serving up a fresh new look thanks to the adoption of OLED screen technology. The class of 2018 has built on the success of iPhone X, and top of the class is Apple’s new plus-size phone, iPhone XS Max.

Like its predecessor, iPhone XS Max boasts a pin-sharp OLED screen with crisp contrast and vivid colours, but on a larger scale – at 6.5 inches, it’s the biggest iPhone screen to date. The awesome dual-lens camera has been upgraded too, with impressive new functions such as Smart HDR allowing even more professional looking shots.

If iPhone X’s release was a watershed moment for the brand, Apple have built on this success with a yet more impressive, feature-packed phone. See our handy feature guide to decide which model is best for you.

I’d class my usage as heavy, and the iPhone XS Max has yet to fail to last me a full day. After taking the phone off charge at around 8am, it will easily see me through to midnight without requiring low-power mode and continue to have enough power left for emergencies. That’s with multiple email accounts, photos constantly being backed up, and the usual array of browsing, messaging and calls.
