iPhone XS and XS Max to Become a Serious Competitor to Galaxy Note Phablets

The new generation of iPhones has been unveiled, the star being iPhone X and iPhone XS Max. While they look a lot like the now discontinued brother, the new devices do bring some exciting features into the fray, like the new A12 Bionic Chip, rumored to be up to 15% faster than the competition. The XS Max, at 6.5 inches can certainly be considered a serious phablet competitor, and it is aimed towards the Galaxy Note crowd.

A highlight on which Apple insisted is the ability manually adjusts the depth of field when you take a picture in Portrait Mode. Apple claimed that the technology was not available before but rivals such as Huawei and Nokia have been already using it for years. And the technology was being developed in its early stages by a company named Lytro back in 2012.

Let’s look at how the iPhones compare with the greatest Android devices namely, Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Note9, and the fan-favorite Google Pixel.

The OLED screens are a major boost but Samsung offers a superior resolution on both devices and a higher PPI count. Google Pixel 2 is the last here, offering a modest Full HD display. When it comes to raw processing power, the comparison cannot be made, since no benchmarks are available for the new A12 chip. While it sports 6 cores in comparison to the octa-core rivals, the new iPhones are also helped by a small octa-core auxiliary processor. Designed to handle machine learning, it may also give the main processors a little boost when needed.

New Camera Features

New features were also added to the dual-sensor cameras, again on par with the rivals when it comes to the number of MP. The 7 MP front sensor is an interesting choice as the other devices come with an 8MP sensor.

It remains to be seen if the updates are enough to rekindle the user base, which was disappointed by the lack of innovation found in the iPhone 8.
