Kaloyan, 26 Sep 2018Yes, it was on iOS 12.Thanks. Yes, the EXIF data in the photos confirms this.
Xs will never reach XZ3's "popularity" at this rate.
No thank you...

Offseasons half the price are fluid and easy to use too!! In fact if all you do is text and Facebook they are both simple. Buy for settings and organization android is still ahead. Though apple did organize iOS again some.
Great job though. Hope that placebo of some mythical fluidness and ease of use for double the cost pays off

But in actual usage throttles much more heavily and is less efficient.
S845 is a much better chip for longevity and efficiency with much less throttle. And much better network connectivity.
And yes the a12 actually comes a little closer to the hype for once....or so it seems so far. And a lot of that is thanks to the move to 7nm which other chips will be there very shortly....and may just as well throttle less and be more efficient again.
We shall see.
And you mean calling out the truth??
Or how apple users are all over every page of the internet proclaiming their superiority??
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2018Wow, that's some convoluted logic!
Does your iPhone XS Max have micro sd card expansion up... moreActually yes. A run test showed that the new iPhones actually have good battery life. Not just standby. For once.
Actually lasted longer than note 9 with it set to full screen resolution.
Shocking i know
Wow. So apple users finally get to experience standard features from the past 2 to 10 years.
Good battery life, a true premium display, better ram, stereo audio recording, less throttled performance and good efficiency, a more stable OS build.
Just to get old normal features though the prices are more insane than ever.
Kaloyan, 27 Sep 2018I am the reviewer and I know what I wrote and it's exactly what I meant - the approach to the ... moreYou mean the shape... that's a bit limited, truly. And notched refers to any shape around the front camera's speakers etc. and in that respect the notch was not copied by Android from Apple as Apple didn't start the notch approach, they followed on from what Essential did, just with a different shape. So Android couldn't carry on with something that wasn't even started by Apple.

Does your iPhone XS Max have micro sd card expansion up to 512gb in addition to 512GB internal storage for all your 4K 60fps phone captured videos, phone captured RAW/DNG photos, FLAC (lossless) music collection, offline 4K movie downloads, offline encyclopedia and other storage devouring media and personal files?
Can your iPhone wirelessly screen share all those phone captured high quality photos and 4K videos on a large screen smart tv to enjoy your photos and 4K videos/movies 1000x more, anytime, anywhere, without buying an overpriced Apple tv that still needs a Wifi network to function?
Does your iPhone have an audio jack to enjoy the highest quality music reproduction using audiophile grade wired headphones that do not become inutile like your low quality bluetooth powered headphones that get disposed in a year or two once the sealed battery dies, and in addition, keeps bombarding your brain with 'harmless' bluetooth radiation each and every single day of extended music listening?
Can your iPhone last a day of heavy use - calling, browsing, Facebook, Youtube, gaming etc. with its microscopic capacity sub-4000mAh battery?
Can your iPhone transfer files to and from any PC and other phones without giving you an excruciating, suffocating, infuriating experience that can almost give the user a siezure?
Can your iPhone personalize the horrendous cluttered iPhone user interface by allowing an app drawer, and by allowing for extensive customization and personalization using dark and custom themes, custom ringtones, adjustable animation speeds, personalized gesture shortcuts/actions, resizable icons, icon grid size, etc, to make phone use 1000x more efficient, enjoyable and personalized to each individual user's needs?
Can your iphone connect to a PC and transform the user interface to desktop mode for a 100% more efficient productivity oriented activity?
Is raw processor power all you can brag about the iPhone, which doesn't even translate to perceptible improvement in phone responsiveness because of the iphone's sluggish scrolling and animation speeds that cannot be changed/cutomized? --- and because iPhone users typically only use their iPhones for calling, texting, Facebook, gaming and browsing, which even cheap android phones can do without problems?
There, that's the whole truth and not the filtered truth which Apple would like its diehard users to believe.
iPhones are expensive not because they give you a vastly better hardware package overall (the only thing better is the superfluous raw processor speed); iPhones are expensive not because they provide a vastly better user experience (which actually is rather restrictive, limited and jurassic as mentioned above in the things it can't do); iPhones are expensive because Apple would rather spend excessively on prestige marketing, promoting iPhones to the affluent market as some prestigious, luxury, must have premium phone for the rich and famous. Other than that, the highway robbery price of the latest iPhones are pure insanity and are meant only to flaunt one's social status rather than being truly the best phone money can buy. If you really want to flaunt your social status, there are much better alternatives like buying an expensive Swiss watch, gold and diamond studded jewelry, buy a luxury car, etc. than waste money on a silicon based electronic device that has zero grams of precious metals and stones and that lasts nowhere near as jewelries or cars and depreciates in value and life faster than one can fully pay for the 2 year monthly amortization.
Nick Tagataka, 27 Sep 2018iPhone XS can record 4K 30fps with Smart HDR activated, dunno what you're talking about.This smart hdr is just the same HDR for photos. It tries to do the same of Google HDR+.
It is not the 10 bit video like HDR10 recorded by G7 or the Rec2020 of Xz2..
IPhone only records SDR videos...
How many android fans came to the comment section without checking the performance score of the Xs? I know it hurts but you should see it, its quite amazing how it crushes the iPhone X which itself is still a lot faster than much newer android flagships.
As performance stands today we have iPhones on the first 4 places, and apple users dont even care much about benchmark performance compared to android fans in general. That makes it even harder to admit that the grand title for the very lowest performance per dollar goes to Note 9, now THATS what i call overpriced. By Note 9 standards the Xs should then cost somewhere around 3000 dollars, but you get it for only 1000, too cheap!
I see no financial reason to not upgrade from X to Xs, the price of XR makes sure that your used X can be sold for AT LEAST the same price if its still in good condition. Thats just 250 bucks to get an Xs instead, or 400 to upgrade to an Xs Max.
My kid has an X and i believe she will get the Xs Max in good time before Xmas. Now is the time to buy used X, they actually increase in price in late october once people realise how much disadvantage there is with XR, and i assume many who are now waiting for the XR will want to get a used X instead when the time come.
Kiyasuriin, 26 Sep 2018It's not even a smartphone.... ^^;Its more smarter than this junk
Nick Tagataka, 27 Sep 2018Unnatural colours? I assume you left Master AI on... Unfortunately it seems that a few people ... moreWell... yeah I did not turn off anything on it. I will not lie. That might be the case then.
Duel, 27 Sep 2018Nice to see honest ex android user! Yes android is like windows PC no matter what you do it's ... moreThis is why I like my iPhone so much despite being dated. I know that even in the future I will stick with iPhones now. I just like how fluid it is and easy to use.
I will get myself a better one when time comes.
DD, 26 Sep 2018But S9 Plus is trash. Doesn't even have Android Pie until now.None of the iPhones has Android, miking them pure trash.
The key feature in Android Pie is the new smarter power management that Samsung has shared with the Android community. That's often the case with Android launches, they tend to implement things Samsung has been doing for years.
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2018So glad I switched from android to the iPhone! Again, the best performance, best battery usage... moreBest what? All i read is: deaf, du'', blind. In the world of fanboy-ism probably you can see all that, in real world, iphone is just another slab. The only difference? More dumb, locked and expensive. Well, this 3 things tells them all.
