It would be fair to say that the whole tech-world has been just obsessed with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and its new iPhones ever since their release. While the products themselves have managed to divide opinion, many third-party entities have also taken the time to come out with a detailed report on the features offered by each newly released iPhones – iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

“The OLED panels in iPhone XS allow for an HDR display with the industry’s best color accuracy, true blacks, and remarkable brightness and contrast. They’re the sharpest displays, with the highest pixel density, on any Apple device,” says Apple.
However, there’s nothing vague about the statement released by Displaymate regarding its analysis of the iPhone XS Max.
“Based on our extensive Lab Tests and Measurements, the iPhone XS Max has an impressive Smartphone display with close to Text Book Perfect Calibration and Performance,” categorically stated by DisplayMate.
iPhone XS Max: Turning Heads Already?
Upon release, a lot was made of the incredible price tag of the Apple’s most expensive smartphone on offer, the iPhone XS Max. But ever since then, things have been anything but down for the much maligned iPhone variant. The first thing that has surprised a lot of people has been the demand for the iPhone variant. The actual demand for iPhone XS Max is about three to four times that of the demand speculated for the demand for the iPhone XS. Hailed as the perfect expression of Steve Jobs’ iPhone by Macrumours, the iPhone XS Max is most popular with its 256 GB variant. The 512 GB variant, however, is supposedly thought to under serious shortage. This is because of the reliance of the Cupertino giant on Samsung for a component key to the manufacture of the same.
Regardless of all the good said about the iPhone variant, it is not exactly flawless. Shortly after the release of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, certain customers found an issue immediately. There were reports of complaints about the speed and connectivity of LTE and Wi-Fi. Apparently, these issues are more intense than those persisting in its predecessors before it. Some have even gone to the extent of blaming it on the use of Intel modems in the new devices over those of Qualcomm.
The Battle Between iPhone XS Series
It seems to be an era of Ss’. Even before the release of Samsung’s Galaxy S flagship, Apple has managed to create its own competition between the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. This is notwithstanding the fact that the iPhone XR, which is yet to go on sale, is speculated to take the market by storm. Will that be the case, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
