iPhone 11 Pro Max vs iPhone XR

Which one is best for you?

iPhone 11 Pro Max was Apple’s biggest and best iPhone of 2019, with a range of upgrades on its predecessor. iPhone XR was 2018’s most affordable new iPhone, and one of Apple’s most popular devices of all time.

iPhone XR features an aluminium design and a 6.1-inch LCD screen. iPhone Pro Max’s superior 6.5-inch OLED display is encased in stainless steel and tough frosted glass. iPhone Pro Max’s much bigger battery lasts up to 4 hours longer than its predecessor, and charges up much faster too. The new A13 Bionic chipset makes iPhone Pro Max quicker and lag-free, and 4GB of RAM will tackle any task with ease.

Apple’s camera boffins have been busy too. iPhone XR's 12-megapixel wide angle camera has given way to a versatile 12+12+12-megapixel array with ultra-wide and telephoto lenses, and an improved Night Mode which handles low light situations beautifully. The selfie camera has been upgraded to a 12-megapixel TrueDepth affair that takes eye-catching Slo-mo selfies.

XR is a great phone, available in lots of colours, but if you can afford it, iPhone 11 Pro Max is one of the best smartphones out there.
