Although at present, Apple's newest phones are the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max with three cameras, its younger brothers, they are still popular for their great qualities and also some "controversial" features. Therefore, we have decided to make a list of everything we love and hate about the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR. If you have one of these phones or plan to buy it, you should read this.
What we love
Various color options
In terms of color options, Apple has been characterized by being a bit conservative with its phones. Excluding the iPhone 5c that comes in exciting colors, Apple regularly uses every year quite faint colors.
However, this 2018, Apple has surprised us, since it launched the new iPhone XR in six vibrant colors. You will find the iPhone XR in black, white, yellow, coral, blue and the unexpected red color.
The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will continue in more traditional colors. This year you will find them in space gray, silver, as well as in a new model in gold color.
Extra battery life
If you are looking for a bit of extra battery, it is recommended that you check the new iPhone 2018. Apple has made hardware and software improvements for the three phones that will allow you to have enough battery to complete.
While the extra 30 minutes of power that Apple claims it gets on the iPhone XS isn't that exciting, it's definitely better than nothing, isn't it? However, the real improvement is the iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR. According to the reports, both phones will give you an extra hour and a half of power.
Ready to store tons of photos or music? This year, Apple used all of its storage options (seen in the past) on its three new phones. Both the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max are available with three different storage capacities: 64 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB.
For its part, the iPhone XR comes in three options as well: 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB. Although you consider that any of the storage options is really large (that the truth is) we recommend that you try to invest in an iPhone with as much memory as possible, since remember that none of these devices have external storage slots to expand , which means that after buying it you cannot regret it!
Dual SIM support
While Dual SIM compatibility may not be exciting for most of us in the US. UU., The truth is that many iPhone users who are in other countries are very grateful and happy with that quality. The iPhone XS and XS Max will be the first Apple phones compatible with dual SIM technology.
Instead of simply creating a hybrid SIM slot, Apple follows the example of Google Pixel 2. The iPhone XS and XS Max will have a traditional SIM along with an eSIM.
Most major US operators. UU. They will support the built-in eSIM of iPhone XS and XS Max later this fall, so you can easily activate the service. That leaves the SIM slot open for international travel or if you are in an area that does not receive a good service from your main operator.
Split view on the iPhone XS Max
The iPhone XS Max is the largest that Apple has created and one of the largest in the market. That means there are many extra inches of screen to work with.
But, best of all, Apple is making the most of that extra space. For the first time on an iPhone (it had only been offered on iPads) Apple is admitting a split view. That means that we can finally have two applications open next to each other: a feature that has been available on most Android smartphones for years.
What we hate
No more dongle for headphones
First, it was the headphone jack, and now it's the dongle. The iPhone 2018 line (and well also the iPhone 8) no longer include a headphone key in the box.
If you want to listen to music or movies on your phone, you have two options left. You can hug the headphones with Bluetooth or pay Apple $ 9 dollars for the small dongle that just come in the free box. The phone cost is not enough!
The bulk of the camera
From the front they look elegant and beautiful, but if you turn the phone, things change quickly. Yes, we are talking about that horrible bulge where the camera is.
While Apple continues to update and refine its hardware, it seems that it ignores that small lump that makes its phones wobble. For the rest, it is almost obvious that you will put a protective case that will balance things for you.
The notch is here to stay
It has been a year since Apple brought the first notch to the main screen, but that does not mean that we have grabbed cario. The truth is, quite the opposite. Currently, we have seen other smart phone manufacturers find creative ways to minimize or eliminate the notch completely and in that, they have beaten Apple.
Is it really Apple? Although we are in 2018, the company of the bitten apple still includes a 5W charger on its iPhones, despite the fact that the entire line is able to load quickly. While there were many rumors that an 18W charger came with the 2018 iPhones, we now know that they were only rumors.
Maximum price of iPhone XS
When Apple announced the iPhone X last year, it was one of the first smart phones on the market that managed to exceed the $ 1,000 dollar threshold. But now, Apple has surpassed itself, announcing that the iPhone XS Max costs a little more than its predecessor.
The iPhone XS Max has an amazing price of $ 1,100 dollars, which is a little less than the cheaper MacBook Pro. However, iPhones receive long-term software support, so it is not necessary to change your phone every year.
