"If you already have itiPhoneX, then the new phone may not have enough advantages to attract you to upgrade. But if you have an older smartphone, you might consider buying a new Apple phone. "
In terms of size, CR mentions some differences between iPhone XS Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and believes that the new 6.5-inch iPhone is better in terms of reachability and usability.
"Note9's slender construction makes it easier to hold, but it's harder to touch the top of the screen with your thumb. With Max, the body may be harder to hold - it's harder to add a protective case - but you don't have to stretch your fingers Go to the top row of icons (refers to the screen drop-down feature)."
However, the report is still a reminder to small users, it is best to experience before buying.
The next report mentions improvements from iPhone XS and XS Max, and the background blur and depth of field controls for new phone updates are a significant change.
"Our testers spent a lot of time in the lab on this feature and even compared it to the background blur of high-end SLR cameras."
The overall image quality is significantly improved by features such as the new Smart HDR.
Other improvements worth mentioning are the new A12 biochips.
"When we tested the processing and graphics capabilities of our phones, we found that XS was unmatched. But other competitors did not perform as badly, especially considering the typical operations of consumers who use their phones daily."
When it comes to the new OLED screen, CR's TV test project director Caludio Ciacci said that the iPhone XS is not much different from the iPhone X, but the iPhone XS Max's 6.5-inch screen offers more detail than the previous generation.
The consumer report will also continue to evaluate the battery life and ruggedness of the new phone, which will bring updates in the future.
