This year Apple changed the line of smartphones, replacing the familiar Plus-models with the giant iPhone Xs Max. But what can he

to offer besides a giant 6.5-inch OLED display? Let's look at a comparison with the regular iPhone Xs!

What is the difference?

Like the Plus models, starting with the sixth generation, Max differs from the regular Xs in four ways: display size, dimensions, battery capacity and price.




Comparison of the dimensions and displays of the new models with last year's iPhone 8 Plus.

  • iPhone Xs Max: 6.5 ″ OLED True Tone | resolution 2688 x 1242 pixels (458 ppi) | 3D Touch, HDR10 and Dolby Vision support

The display on the iPhone Xs Max is the same as on the iPhoneXs, only 0.7 inches larger. Although the resolution is slightly higher compared to the regular model, the pixel density here is the same - 458 ppi. Both smartphones take full advantage of OLED and support Dolby Vision and HDR 10 technologies.


  • iPhone Xs: lasts 30 minutes longer than the iPhone X | 12 hours on the Internet | 14 hours of video playback | 20 hours talk time
  • iPhone Xs Max: lasts 90 minutes longer than the iPhone X | 13 hours on the Internet | 15 hours of video playback | 25 hours talk time

Since the Xs Max is equipped with a more capacious battery than a regular model, it will be able to work longer for everyday tasks. Both smartphones support fast and wireless charging technologies.

  • iPhone Xs Max: 157.5 x 77.4 x 7.7 mm | 208 g | IP68 certificate

Since the Max version has more display and capacitybattery, this affected the weight of the device. Xs Max is 31 g heavier than regular Xs. At the same time, despite the wider and higher display, Max managed to maintain the same thickness as the younger model. Both smartphones are protected against water according to the IP68 standard. This means that they can be under water at a depth of up to 2 meters for half an hour.

Of course, an enlarged screen and extended timeThe battery life means that the price tag on the Max is predictably higher. In Russia, the difference between Xs and Xs Max with the same memory capacity will be 9,000 rubles, in the United States a little less - $ 100.
