Consumer Reports: the iPhone XS & XS Max are great but the Note9 is still better

Consumer Reports just published its comprehensive reviews and ratings of the recently launched iPhone XS and XS Max and concluded that the new duo is better in almost every way compared to last year’s iPhone X. We are talking battery life, camera performance and overall day-to-day performance.

According to the review, the new iPhone XS and XS Max handsets deliver considerably better battery life, slight camera improvements and snappier OS navigation.

And as for the battery life, we assume the new 7nm A12 Bionic chipset is the one to blame here as the battery capacity of the iPhone XS is actually smaller than the one found in the iPhone X. Consumer Reports’ robotic arm tested the devices in regular web browsing, phone calls and taking photos and returned more than satisfying results. The slow charging times with the included charger in the box, however, remains the main drawback of the new 2018 iPhones.

Durability concerns are a big issue for potential iPhone buyers, but you will be happy to know that the iPhone XS Max can survive quite a few drops yet, the Samsung Galaxy Note9 still appears to be a bit tougher. And if you are interested in more detailed findings, head to the source link below.
