iPhone XS Max vs iPhone 7 Plus

Which one is best for you?

Two years on from the release of iPhone 7 Plus, which boasted the first dual-lens rear camera on an iPhone, Apple returns with an updated version of its flagship plus size offering – iPhone XS Max.

The new Smart HDR technology allows for improved low-light photography and sharper contrast, while the impressive depth of field functionality enables bokeh adjustment after your shot is taken. iPhone XS Max builds on the success of 2017’s iPhone X, with a dazzling OLED screen which covers the whole front of the phone and delivers pin-sharp images with enhanced saturation and contrast on a generous 6.5-inch display.

Increased battery life, 3D facial recognition software for enhanced security, and augmented reality apps are all fresh features on Apple’s new plus-size iPhone, making it a considerable upgrade on 2016’s iPhone 7 Plus. An already impressive phone has been significantly improved.
