- These are three phones, each different from the other in one way or another. But when we talk about the XS Max really it is the XS that comes to mind first. That is because the Max is a larger (size) version of the former. I am tempted to say every other detail of the two is constant, but let us not get too ahead of ourselves here. This review will talk about the iPhone XS Max in detail describing and explaining (some) of its key features as listed below. It is a 2018 flagship so brace yourself for the quite obvious.

With confidence now, I can report that but for size Apple’s iPhone XS and XS Max are one and the same.
Design and build
With respect to design and build, the XS and X are everything alike. Starting from choice of glass and stainless steel build material all the way to placement of cameras, the front facing notch (with selfie camera, sensors, call speaker etc) and even brandings and that shinny apple logo on the back. It is 157.5 x 77.4 x 7.7 mm tall, wide and thick respectively and weighs about 208 grams.
