iPhone XS Max vs Galaxy S7 edge

Which one is best for you?

With the Galaxy S7 edge, Samsung introduced their first edge-to-edge screen and delivered a phone that created a serious buzz. Two years on, the latest release from Apple is upon us. So how do they measure up?

iPhone XS Max is considerably bigger, for starters, its dazzling 6.5-inch OLED display looks huge next to the 5.5-inch Super AMOLED screen of the Galaxy S7 edge. The Samsung’s camera excels in low light, while the dual camera squeezed into iPhone XS Max delivers pin-sharp photographs with vibrant colours and crisp contrast.

Both phones are water and dust resistant, enjoy great battery life and charge wirelessly. Use our handy quick feature guide to help you work out which model suits your needs best.
