iPhone XS Max vs iPhone 6

Which phone is best for you?

iPhone 6 was 2014’s flagship iPhone, and although it has been superseded by newer models in recent years, it remains a hugely popular phone. Great though it is, upgrading to iPhone XS Max will dazzle you with the host of new features and functionality Apple has introduced in the last four years.

The move from LCD to OLED has resulted in a sharper display with improved contrast and saturation, and allows for a larger screen without the need for a bezel. iPhone XS Max boasts a hefty 6.5-inch display, letting you enjoy gaming and videos with sharper resolution and colours that really ‘pop’.

iPhone XS Max also features a fantastic 12-megapixel dual-lens camera, delivering a significant step up in image quality from iPhone 6’s 8-megapixel single lens workhorse and benefiting from Apple’s impressive new Smart HDR technology. The combination of a wide angle lens and a 2x optical zoom lens enables professional-looking portraits where the subject stands out against an unfocused background.
