It has an oleophobic coating which helps in preventing fingerprint smudges. The coating also makes the phone less slippery. While it is large, it does not dig in the palms, so it sits well in hand. iPhone XS Max comes with IP68 water resistance which is a necessity for the flagship market. Plus, the back panel is seamless, with all the components sitting in flush. Following the trend, it does not come with the audio jack.

It also records a good amount of colour gamut getting about 123 percent, though, in this department, the Galaxy Note 9 sails past, reaching 224 percent.
The beast A12 Bionic processor is fitted in the phone. It is hexa-core and works lightning fast. The Face ID works much quicker than the iPhone X, and iOS 12 provides improved software algorithm.

The two 12MP rear cameras, one of which is telephoto and the other wide-angle, has deeper and bigger pixels which help in the entry of 50 percent more light so that there is no sacrifice of any sharpness. When there is adequate light, the iPhone XS Max gives a fantastic image quality, with excellent colour reproduction and sharp features.
Even in low light, the iPhone XS Max’s performance shines. When the lights are dimmed, it seems the phone provides its own light as the images appear lighted up and it carries enough sharpness to help in the visibility of the subjects.
The selfie camera is quite decent though it is not something that is exceptional. It will produce decent pictures and help you with FaceTime.
iPhone XS Max produces a rich sound with a widened stereo sound that results in more punchy audio.
The iPhone XS Max has a 3,174 mAh battery, which is larger than the 2,716 battery fitted in the iPhone X. It gives a high endurance and can run for one day without a problem. Web Browsing found it getting an impressive 10 hours and 38 minutes of runtime which is quite high but is lower than Galaxy Note 9’s 11 hours 16 minutes. However, it is still a satisfying score and proves that iPhone XS Max can run for a day with light and moderate use. Though, it does not come at par with other smartphone having 3,500 mAh or higher battery capacity.
The iPhone XS Max is one of the best phones that you could buy – it has one of the fastest processors which beats any Android flagship, and it comes with a better battery too, in respect to its predecessors. The camera quality is one of the top though Note 9 also has a good camera quality.,The best feature is that the XS Max’s camera performs well in low-light too. However, the only problem with the phone is that it lacks the manageable size as it quite large. It is adequately compensated with a brilliant and immersive display. iPhone XS Max is the phone for any iPhone fans to go for. However, if you want an Android model, then Galaxy Note 9 is a good bet.
