Will u be kind enough GSMArena to enable SCROLLING in the 'display test' chart? If it's possible in 'loudness test' and 'audio quality' charts, then why not in the 'display test' chart?
What Kudos to Samsung. Sorry to say Sony doesn't copy at all tooooo. However why you dun have all copy Sony function like Slow Motion, Water Resistance, MultiShot Camera and many more and promote heavily on those overhaul function from Sony.
At this point, people should have realised that this iphone is a sort of luxury item almost as much as a phone. When you start getting into these territories, it's not about price/ performance anymore.
A $16 000 Hermes handbag is not 80 times better than a $200 one, right?
Duel, 26 Sep 2018"5 Actually any flagship smartphones I'm saying any damn flagship smartphone should not be pri... moreI'm running my own company and I'm application developer so I better know what I'm saying. "I'm not fan of any company, cause they are company and they are in market to make profit. But I'm so frustrated that how people are loosing their mind and welcomes companies like Apple and Samsung to looting themselves" is my concern.
And don't tell me how much money they are putting behind development, if their production + marketing cost is so much as you people said then Apple won't be the highest profitable company with 12% of market share.
And people complaining legging in android phones they must be comparing entry level phones, compare with android flagships and see the truth your self.
Future is near, you can't be fooling people all the times and for decades. Good days were gone with Steave Job, Apple is eating sweet fruits today just because of him. Not because they are now inventing new things or their product is too good to purchase at $1300+
In sweet and short their phones are overpriced and over hyped.
I am just waiting for a good selling price of my Note 8 (which I enjoyed with some irritating lags in notification, search , camera etc etc) - and wish not to come android (at least samsung - seems they just copied the iphone price but failed to deliver , no timely update etc). Hope will get good value for Note 8.
@gsmarena: Why you compare iPhone with Pixel in low light photos, when P20 Pro is the best phone for low light photography?
We need another shootout, I can tell that Smart HDR definitely helps detail but not much else.
Why would you pay £1000 for the iphone xs when you can get the same features, spec and speed in the Honor 10 for only £300???
Android piss on apple.....
Pcworldjames, 26 Sep 2018disappointment, it costs twice what it's worththat's crApple for you. :P
Realistic1, 26 Sep 2018Yes, I had that happen to me on every Android I owned, even flagships. Now I have a cheapes... moreThat sounds unrealistic! My one year old Note8 or even the other Android i have in my home, 3 year old Moto Z Style doesn't show any signs of what has been written here. It obviously looks like is written by an Apple fanboy.
Duel, 26 Sep 2018So you just forgot that someone have to make Face ID better, Make camera better, make chip bet... moreDesigning part gets finished long before it goes into manufacturing process. Do you think a manufactured display is easy to cut a notch and still work fine? Do you think it's easy to add features to a camera module after it got manufactured(I don't know if it's possible or not)? I thought Apple fanboys are knowledgeable based on their talks! Every hardware comes to Apple from manufacturers after meeting all the requirements of Apple. The costs shown in the article are for the final products Apple used to assemble their phone. Apple gives its design requirements to Samsung and Sony, respective display, chip and camera module manufacturers, and they in return manufacture based on those designs and supply final products to Apple to assemble. Apple doesn't just simply buy display panels and camera modules from Samsung and Sony, they make them build according to Apple's designs and requirements. It's not like they went for display and camera shopping in a mall and bought whatever the model they liked. I think you don't know how a business deal works? Right? X company gives its requirements to Y company, and Y company builds products based on those requirements and give a final bills and materials to X company. And later X assembles all the finished materials and puts its OS on it and does QC and sells it a double or triple the manufacturing costs, considering X is Apple. Even if you add additional 200USD per device for all the R&D work, it will cost Apple not more than 600USD per XS/XS Max. That's the amount you pay Apple service guys if you happen to break a display of your XS.
Google Pixel 2 XL's camera appears to still be the best, although it's from last year. Logically, the Pixel 3 will be even better
Realistic1, 26 Sep 2018It is the same as it's name says it is - the improved version of iPhone X.
It's not hard to u... more'Like if you turn on your Android device in the morning and it freezes because notifications start coming. Or you are in some app, and someone texts you and everything lags because of that notification, and lags while opening apps or apps crashing...'
This is completely not true, dont believe! I dont experience it myself, as an android user myself!
Something about this review feels off. The tone or the writing, I guess. Maybe it's a different author.
Also, why are there no pictures of the iPhone from all sides (the ones with a clear white background). It is there in your pictures section, but is missing from the review. I wonder why you didn't mention about the less number of drilled holes in the bottom of the iPhone.
Also, the audio section is written weirdly, with information being repeated and regurgitated.
The screen is awesome. Samsung's AMOLED displays are definitely the best out there. Battery is life is pretty meh. The performance in the other hand is superb, as expected. It blows everything else away! What a true beast! The 2019 Android flagship chipsets better up their game.
The camera is good, but I don't see it on par with the best of Android cameras. And finally, stereo audio recording, after years of neglect. Well, better late than never.
Apple has never been generous in terms of features, but removing the 3.5 mm jack is still a deal-breaker, even two after it was dropped from the iPhone 7. See, even the reviewers can't conduct their audio quality test because of it. And the less said about the price, the better.
imRGZ, 26 Sep 2018Well, for every 64gb variant, Apple needs just 370.25USD to make a single X or even XS, ok max... moreSo you just forgot that someone have to make Face ID better, Make camera better, make chip better etc. You think those things are free? you know all the stuff before they actually manufacture the product?

Even if we take all other expenses concerned it wont cost Apple more than 500-550USD per device. And their selling price? Almost double or even triple the manufacturing price. And not to forget their service costs, their service charges are equivalent to a new iPhone’s price. It’s no wonder that Apple became a trillion dollar company.

Now I have a cheapest iPhone (SE) and so far I never experienced any lag...
