iPhone XS Max vs iPhone X

Which phone is best for you?

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.
