The "1-Minute" Review
The Apple iPhone Xs Max marks the top end of Apple’s 2018 phone line-up. But unlike previous years, the Max doesn’t offer features you can’t find in other iPhones.
It’s the same phone as the iPhone Xs -- just with a larger 6.5-inch screen. However, the larger screen also includes a higher resolution of 2688-by-1242 pixels. This means you don’t have to sacrifice clarity or detail to enjoy the larger screen.
The increase in the phone’s size adds just over an ounce to the weight of the device. So it’s still ultra portable. However, the larger size made it harder for reviewers to use in one hand. Even those with larger hands might struggle.
Otherwise, it’s the same blazing performance, beautiful screen, and powerful camera you’ll find in the Xs. For a full summary of what to expect, check out our iPhone Xs summary.
