The Consumer Report today published its views on Apple's latest iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, saying the new A12 bionic chip and camera upgrades are the most significant improvements compared with last year's iPhone X.
First, the Consumer Reports highlighted the iteration of this year's iPhone updates and advised consumers that the new iPhone would be more attractive to users of older smartphones. The report points out that if you already have iPhone X, iPhone XS may not be attractive enough.
In terms of size, the Consumer Report also points out some differences between the iPhone XS Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The report says that although the Note 9 fuselage is easier to grip, it is hard for the thumb to touch the top of the screen. Although iPhone XS Max has a poor grip, its accessibility is better.
But Consumer Reports also wants to warn smaller users that it's best to experience the real machine before buying the iPhone XS Max.
When it comes to improvements in the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max, Consumer Reports says out-of-focus imaging and depth-of-field control are the most significant improvements since the camera was upgraded. Testers spent a lot of time in the lab trying out new iPhone cameras and even comparing them with SLR cameras. With the help of intelligent HDR and other functions, the overall imaging quality of iPhone XS series has been significantly improved.
Another excellent upgrade mentioned in the consumer report is the new A12 bionic processor. IPhone XS beat all competitors in the processor and graphics function tests. However, Caludio Ciacci, head of the Consumer Reports test program, said the OLED screen on the iPhone XS is not much different from the iPhone X, except that the Max version of the 6.5-inch display provides more detail.
