Attractive?Bigger? High-end? Better UI? More Power? Don’t know what’s inside this newly launched phone of the Apple’s iPhone? This time the iPhone is come up with the three major variant namely iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR. These three are revealed at the iPhone Launch event at the Apple Park Campus in Cupertino(the headquarter of Apple), CA, USA. The CEO Tim Cook said at the launch event that the iPhone XR will be one of the lowest budget and the most affordable phone from Apple. Although it never seems to be the “most affordable” phone as the pricing of the phone says it all.

Here we’re getting a close look-up at the Apple’s iPhone XS mobile phone. What make this phone different from the other previously launched Apple’s iPhone? How’s it if I got to own this phone? Let’s get started with all these kinda questions and know what this new phone has all to show us.


The Apple iPhone XS mobile phone looks quite similar to the previously launched iPhone X. Infact currently launched all the three versions are quite similar to the earlier version of the iPhone. They all have less-bezel corners with a same kind of notch at the top front of the phone. The sides will make a difference as it’s made of a metallic plates. The front and back panels are coated with a glass screen. There’s no home button at all but a screen with a face unlock option that might be a setback to some of Apple’s users. But this one’s new and an experiment from the company that how their users interact with this kinda UI. The Apple’s logo at the top middle position sustains with a camera setup at the top left sitting vertically.

Yet there are phones in the market where you’ll have the similar design and outlook of the phone but holding a real iPhone models are quite different than holding the other mime devices. Still Apple holds a large share of their marketcap.

As usual you’ll not be getting any 3.5mm headphone jack on the ground. Well it’s common in these devices but at the same time you’ll be having soft Apple’s earbuds and a Type – C port at the bottom of the device. Without the help of a connector it’s useless so you must have to buy a specific Apple’s headphone to a mobile device connector. It’s almost insane to hear that Apple is such giant company of Silicon Valley and it’s unable to spend on such a small connector. With this small gadget they are making such huge money that you can’t even imagine. And this is such a shameful act of Apple that must be highlighted in the market.

All in all the device isn’t looks new to the user as there are no significant changes in the design of the device. Despite few like metallic corners are the one that makes the difference and all other things remains the same.


The new Apple iPhone XS mobile phone is an IP68 water resistant that means the device is resistant to water up to 2meters depth for about 30minutes as is confirmed by the company itself. The device is having a 5.8inche OLED display with a perfect blend of color. Being a perfect color balance the graphical user interface(GUI) of the device looks awesome. The screen uses a Super Retina HD display unit(yes that’s hd and not FHD display). The phone enlarged up to 2436 × 1125 pixels with a 458 PPI and that’s quite impressive. Its also dust resistant to help you survive even in harsh environment.

The notch at the top head of the device looks great housing a speaker grill, camera, and other beautiful sensors. The display unit is undoubtedly of super quality and the device supports the HDR vedio recording. With A12 Bionic chipset the phone runs quite faster than earlier. Although it’s not the major improvement over the previous version but it gives somewhat faster and smoother performance.


The camera could be called as the major upliftment that Apple iPhone has brought up with. There is a dual camera at the rear end of the device having 12+12MP sensors. The camera works perfectly smoother and capture all objects and subjects very clearly and vividly. The rear is packed up with two latest jwells – wide angle high quality low-light performance and a telephoto lens allowing you to capture more detailed picture of the objects with a 2x zooming.
The portrait mode works fine enough as you can make use of bookeh mode to blue the unwanted background objects. The camera offcourse offers some dynamic range of photography this time yet it’s not that rich like Google Pixel 3 XL. But it’s gonna blow your mind off with some amazing AI sensors, ambient low light photography, healthy lightening effect, etc.

On the front part is a 7MP camera that encapsulates to capture selfies quite effectively. This camera has been a major feature of the phone as its been highly used for the face-unlock. Despite this, you’ll get a PIN unlock system to unlock the device and no other medium at all.

Overall the camera quality is a level-up and yeah it will never set you down. The new Apple’s A12 Bionic really works great empowering real power to the device.


The battery back up is almost the same as is was with the Apple iPhone X last year. With a 2,700mAh of battery backup the Apple iPhone could barely survive a day long. While the new Apple iPhone XS is adding an extra 30 minutes to it. That means 24hrs 30 minutes long and this is quite disappointing. Par one point Apple is declaring a phone with all major specifications in-built on the phone and in real there’s nothing new to buy this phone.
The battery used here is a rechargeable li-ion battery. It could be charge via Apple’s charging cable that fills to 50 percent in just 30 minutes(I mean there’s nothing like high end dramatic apps so it’s obvious that it could take up to 30 minutes to make it’s 50 percent).

In terms of battery backup the phone is dull. There’s nothing like extreme battery backup, restricted gaming mode, selected apps could be installed and still you people are crazy about these iPhones. The phone supports wireless charging mode but there’s nothing wrong with the wired charging mode.

Pricing and Availability

Although the company said about its major keynotes but the phone doesn’t give a feel like it’s having something new. The looks, and the size doesn’t even dazzle you the most. The display looks a bit bright and colored this time but almost the same as previous Apple iPhone X. The battery as usual never touches 4000mAh. This might not be possible for Apple as it could take you as high as 1lack+ I guess. But at the safer side we’ve a dual Sim supported Apple iPhone XS mobile phone.

After spending this much amount how can we get satisfied with the HD display. And the CEO, Tim Cook portrays it as a budget phone. I think Cook has now started watching comedy shows. This is why he’s acting and saying like this. I mean spending more than 65k isn’t a budget phone. Is it the budget phone?
