Apple iPhone XS Max estimated production costs revealed

21 days ago   |   By Phone Arena

At $1,099 for the base model and an eye-watering $1,499 for the range-topping 512GB variant, the iPhone XS Max is Apple's most expensive iPhone ever. And today, in new estimates published by TechInsights, the actual component value of the newest iPhone has been revealed.
In total, the 256GB model of the iPhone XS Max, which is reportedly the most popular offering among consumers, is valued at an estimated $443, representing a hike of almost $50 over last year's 64GB iPhone X. Breaking this new figure down, the 6.5-inch display is unsurprisingly the smartphone's most expensive component ...

The new iPhones have excellent cameras, to be sure. But it's always good to verify Apple's breathless on-stage claims with first-hand reports. We have our own review of the phones and their photography systems, but teardowns provide the invaluable service of letting you see the biggest changes with your own eyes - augmented, of course, by a high-powered microscope.
We've already seen iFixit's solid-as-always disassembly of the phone, but TechInsights gets a lot closer to the device's components - including the improved camera of the iPhone XS and XS Max.

Specifically, it's revealed that the 44mm Series 4 device contains 1.12 watt-hours, while the smaller 40mm offering includes 0.86 watt-hours.

The iPhone XS blows away the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in a new speed test

The iPhone XS blows away the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 in a new speed test

22 days ago   |   By Business Insider

The iPhone XS Max beat the Galaxy Note 9 in a new speed test.
Last year, the Galaxy Note 8 beat the iPhone 8 on the same speed test.
While these kind of tests aren't as objective as processor benchmarks, they do give a good idea of how the phone performs in daily usage.
The iPhone XS is faster than the Galaxy Note 9, according to a new speed test from PhoneBuff posted on YouTube.
This speed test is non-scientific: Basically, the test consists of opening a series of apps, and whichever phone finishes first wins the test.
But we've been following PhoneBuff's tests for a while, because they...

Camera head to head: Lumia 950 XL vs iPhone XS Max

22 days ago   |   By All About Windows Phone

With Apple picking up several of the ex-Nokia PureView team, it was clear that the iPhone's imaging was only going to get better and better, and the new XS Max is terrific. Thanks to the stablised 12MP telephoto lens, it can pick up detail at distance even beyond the mighty Lumia 950. But what about artefacts and performance under challenging light?

Apple iPhone XS review

Apple iPhone XS review

22 days ago   |   By GSMArena

Same. But different. But still same. The iPhones are masters at being that, especially the S series. What Apple obviously can't do is come up with clever names. Worse, the XS may as well go down in history as the worst labelled phone ever. Two Latin letters, but only one means a number. What could go wrong?
