iPhone 11 vs iPhone XS Max

Which one is best for you?

Although iPhone XS Max was the most highly-spec’d iPhone of the 2018 release, and iPhone 11 the most affordable of the 2019 clutch, the advances Apple have made in that year make these two beautiful phones broadly comparable.

iPhone XS Max has a better screen – its gorgeous 6.5-inch OLED display outshining iPhone 11’s more modest, but still excellent, 6.1-inch LCD display. The batteries are of a similar size, and should last a full day, but iPhone 11 has the fast new A13 Bionic processor, improving on 2018’s A12 Bionic chip.

But it’s in camera tech where Apple have made the biggest strides. iPhone XS Max sports a very capable 12+12-megapixel dual lens rear camera with telephoto and wide angle lenses. iPhone 11 has a wide and ultra wide camera with bigger lenses to let in more light. What’s more you can shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second, and take slo-mo selfies with the upgraded 12-megapixel front camera.

iPhone XS Max was the big beast of 2018, but iPhone 11 is a smashing phone with a reasonable price tag.
