Apple iPhone XS Review

Score: 9.78

Apple iPhone XS is an absolutely great device launched some years ago, featuring a high performance Hexa-Core processing unit running at 2490 MHz, a big size 5.8" screen, a 12 megapixels back side camera and a 7 megapixels front camera.

Apparently Apple didn't care much about the weight in this 6.24 oz phone. Talking about its body materials, the iPhone XS is majorly manufactured with Glass and Stainless steel . This cellphone is just 0.3" thick, making it one of the thinnest devices nowadays. This phone is a very compact cellphone, taking into consideration it features a 5.8 inches screen and it is only 5.65" long and 2.79" wide. This device is available in 3 colors, gold, silver and space gray.

Apple decided to power this phone with a Apple A12 Bionic APL1W81 system chip, backed up by a very powerful Hexa-Core processor running at 2490 MHz with a big 4 GB of RAM memory. An amazing feature of the iPhone XS is the 64 GB big internal storage and even though it doesn't have a slot for an SD memory card, it is still enough to store hundreds of applications without having to worry about how much memory is left.

This phone has two cameras, a 12 MP back camera and a 7 megapixels front facing camera. the Apple iPhone XS's back camera has a maximum 1.8 aperture so it can capture awesome photographs even in low lighting conditions. This cellphone can also film videos in 3840x2160 (4K) at 60 frames per second, and slow motion videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) up to 240 frames per second. Additionally, this cellphone's camera also has time lapse video and auto-focus.

Apple equipped this device with an awesome 5.8 inches display, and a 1125 x 2436 resolution, which makes everything look completely perfect.

The Apple iPhone XS comes with an inmense 2659 mAh Li - Ion non-removable battery that provides this device a poor battery life. A key issue to take into account is that the iPhone XS's battery isn't removable so you can't change it when it starts to get older, having to replace the whole cellphone.

This cellphone offers WiFi connectivity (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) high speed connection type and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a lower speed 4G variation) and the fastest 3G internet connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone comes with two Nano SIM cards so it is able to use two different phone numbers in the same cellphone.

This phone also includes a lot of useful features such as Face unlock, Wireless charging, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (enables communication with other phones and accessories) and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The iPhone XS costs around 380 dollars, which is quite high for a cellphone this level. No matter if you will use it as a social phone, want it to play tons of games, are looking for a work device or are an amateur photographer, this phone is probably a good choice . If you buy this cellphone you also receive Lightning to USB Cable, Documentation , EarPods with Lightning Connector and USB Power Adapter.
