The iPhone XS Max: Is It Worth It?

There is a thick air of intrigue over the newly released iPhone models, especially for the most expensive one — the iPhone XS Max. Is it worth it? This article lists some of its most notable Pros and Cons. Let us begin!



Massive storage space.

The iPhone XS Max has a memory that can go up to a whopping 512 Gb, which will come in handy if you are into a lot of smartphone photography, videography, or gaming. The iPhone XS Max will record 4K footage at full speed for as long as there is still storage space available.


New A12 Bionic chip.

The new A12 Bionic chip is famed to be 15% faster than last year’s iPhones. Paired with the iOS, you get a superb operating system. With all of iOS’s features and updates, you can be sure that the iPhone XS Max will be in top form for years to come.


Size advantage.

Being the largest iPhone ever made so far has an appeal to people who simply adore large phones but don’t want to get a Samsung Note 9 or another competitor phone.


Better battery life.

Apple claims that the iPhone XS Max has the longest battery life on an iOS device ever. This could be a major selling point as iPhones have always been severely condemned for plenty of battery-related issues.


Improved HDR.

Apple decided to equip the iPhone XS Max’s camera system with a new Smart HDR and a larger light sensor for sharper pictures and videos.


Dual SIM.

If you own more than one number, you’re in luck! You need not worry about carrying two phones anymore.


Built-in protection.

For the first time in iPhone history, the XS Max comes with an IP68 resistance to water and dust.


Largest and most sturdy screen on an iPhone.

Not only does the iPhone XS Max have the biggest screen ever, it also uses one of the strongest materials ever used on an iPhone.


Stunning display.

To complement the large screen is the iPhone XS Max’s OLED Super Retina display. This means a better, more spectacular viewing and gaming experience. Just make sure to safeguard the iPhone XS Max’s screen with a reliable, impact-resistant, seamless protector so you can avoid the $600 price tag for getting a damaged one fixed.



Steep price.

For a starting price of $1,099, a phone must have something truly groundbreaking for people to willingly throw away their hard-earned cash. However, the iPhone XS Max only carries with it a few incremental upgrades, which makes it hardly worth it.


Not much innovation.

As mentioned above, most of the iPhone XS Max’s features can be seen on the iPhone X, XR, and XS. The only thing the iPhone XS Max has that his launch mates don’t is the bigger display size.


Fast-charger not included.

If you think that shelling out $1,099 for the iPhone XS Max would include a fast charger, you’ve got another think coming. Apple fails in this area miserably since most rivals include the fast charger as a standard.


And there you have it — a list of some of the iPhone XS Max’s Pros and Cons. Whatever you decide depends heavily on your needs and preferences. Something is worth only what someone is willing to pay you for it after all.
