iPhone XS and XS Max review

  • Published on:  9/18/2018
  • Apple's new iPhone XS and XS Max are familiar territory with two key updates: a faster processor and an upgraded camera. Oh, and the XS Max has the largest screen ever found on an iPhone. But is that enough to justify the very high cost of the best iPhones you can buy?Correction: Nilay misspoke! The iPhone XS Max has a 6.5-inch display, not 6.8. The XS has a 5.8, and the XR has a 6.1.Subscribe: http://goo.gl/G5RXGsHere's a link to buy Apple's new iPhone XS and XS Max: https://fave.co/2X5r1ojNote: we sometimes place affiliate links directly to the best deals in our video descriptions, so we may earn a commission if you buy something.Like The Verge on Facebook: https://goo.gl/2P1aGcFollow on Twitter: https://goo.gl/XTWX61Follow on Instagram: https://goo.gl/7ZeLvXRead More: http://www.theverge.comCommunity guidelines: http://bit.ly/2D0hlAvSubscribe to Verge Science on YouTube, a new home base for our explorations into the future of science: http://bit.ly/2FqJZMl

    It's such an expensive phone from a trillion dollar company. You'd expect them to not have these little annoyances. It's called capitalism, get used to it.

    I'm still wondering why there's no iPhone 9?

  • Because 7 ate 9 😂

    You truly know that Apple needs to step up their game next year when even The Verge and EverythingApplePro is underwhelmed with these new phones.

    In India it costs 1500$ for XS base variant and 1900$ for 512GBIt's not luxury. It's madness.

  • Twisted Melody 1 months ago

    Holy hell...it’s bad enough I spent $1500 for the max but I could never imagine spending 2 grand on a phone....4 months later. Yes I’d like to buy your iPhone 12 XlRHD for $2299 please.

    We've reached 'peak' Apple.... nothing satisfies now. I'm still on the iPhone 6 Plus and will be until Apple comes out with something impressive enough to justify the price. This hasn't been th case for me for the last 4 years.

    Got Game makes no sense. I had an IPhone 6 and the X’s camera quality was significantly better than the 6, no matter how I took the picture. Skill is definitely involved, but technical differences are still there 🤦‍♂️

  • Lyric ♐️ 20 days ago

    Mark O'Cain I came from a 6 plus and it’s worth the investment. Just go to a carrier like Verizon or at&t and you’ll end up paying like $100+ a month for the phone instead of buying it right out

    Akinkunmi Adegoke I’ve owned every note/galaxy/ and iPhone series. iPhone starting at 4s for me. Honestly I really like the notes. But if you don’t use the stylus that much which I didn’t really after the first two weeks, I think you’d really like the iPhone XS. Or XS max. Although they’re expensive as hell. I have the original X and a XS max which I’m using right now. Can honestly say I like the XS max more. But if you’re looking for a change in pace from the note series I’d give it a go. Just keep in...
