iPhone XS Max Review: What I Love about the Newest Apple Smartphone
Table of Contents
Remember when everyone was talking about iPhone X last year and rushing just to get hold of Apple’s then latest Smartphone which promised exemplary quality both in design and its functions? Well, Apple’s done it again with their new iPhone Xr iPhone Xs, and iPhone Xs Max and I admit that I’m as excited as everyone.
I recently got my own iPhone Xs Max and I’m totally loving it. Let me share with you some of the most impressive things I love about the new iPhone XS Max.
A Display that Wows Everyone
The newest addition in the Apple universe comes in an all-screen display that makes videos and photos look more vibrant. Take note too that iPhone XS Max comes in a 6.5-inch display that’s why I’m in awe that this Smartphone lets its user see a clear display in every use. The touch sensitivity features is also impressive.
Since I travel a lot, I want a super-efficient Smartphone that I can use to listen to music or watch videos that have clear sounds when I’m away from home and its speakers’ capacity can achieve that.
The speaker audio of XS Max is located near the True Depth Camera. This means that I can record stereo audio while also taking videos and the sound will be much precise.
The XS Max variety gives an additional 1 ½ hours usage against last year’s iPhone X so if I use it when I go out of town where I won’t be able to charge it at once, I don’t have to worry if I get stuck at a party because its added hours allows me to use it until I get home.
iPhone XS Max is Dual Sim
Here in the Philippines, most locals are adept to using two sim cards so that communicating is much easier. iPhone XS Max allows me to use my two top sim cards for faster transactions with people. While overseas, It will also allow me to use my primary sim card and a local sim card without carrying an additional smartphone in my pocket.
Upgraded IP68 Water and Dust Resistance
Not that I would intentionally drop in a pool of water but if it does happen, Apple guarantees that after much improvement of their newest Smartphone model, it will function just like before. This Smartphone can sit in 6.5 feet of water for half an hour. Aside from that, its sleek design is also resistant to dust.
iPhone XS Max Photography Features
I love the fact that taking photos is quick and effortless thanks to iPhone XS Max and since mobile photography is currently taking the world by storm, its camera features isn’t to be taken for granted.
As a traveler, I consider a Smartphone’s camera one of its best features. The front camera of XS Max and iPhone X are the same; they both have a 7MP sensor and f/2.2 lens. The rear camera of both is also the same with 12MP sensors and f/2.4 lens.
What’s updated is its wide-angle camera which is now 12MP. Because of that, I’m sure that I can take better and crisper photos every time I’m at an event or checking out a new destination. The ‘focus pixels’ of XS Max has been doubled so its performance in different lighting conditions is also enhanced. I’m confident that with this new Smartphone by Apple, I can take photos in low lighting situations but I’d still be getting less pixelized photos.
The Portrait Lighting of This Smartphone is Spectacular
There are five portrait lighting effect in the new iPhone XS Max and these are Natural, Studio, Contour, Stage and Stage Mono so every selfie or whatever it is I’m taking photos of, I’m sure that the outcome is always a stunning photo.
The new iPhone XS Max comes in Gold, Space Gray and Silver and capacities of 64GB, 256GB, and 512GB. It weighs 208 grams with a height of 6.20 inches and width of 3.05 inches.
