The first round of reviews of Apple’s latest iPhone XS and XS Max are in, and there seems to be a lot of thumbs up after swiping through the new models. Many of the favorable reviews note that a major improvement is the camera, especially with portrait mode and the new “smart HDR” feature that Apple unveiled during its keynote event last week. Reviewers also seemed to like how iOS, apps and videos look on the iPhone XS Max screen, which is 6.5 inches.
But if you’re looking to buy a new phone, don’t go on these reviews alone. The $750 iPhone XR, which has many of the same features as the iPhone XS, will be released in October. It has yet to go through a hands-on examination from tech journalists, but waiting could save $250.
Here it is. The @Apple iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max. UnBoxing, first impressions and a whole lot more. These are the first few new iPhones anywhere in the world. Would love to hear your opinion on the phone, the price and the features. Do share and retweet. pic.twitter.com/lKsadnKnyM
