Apple iPhone XS Review
The best iPhone yet - but not a huge step on from the iPhone X
Is the new iPhone XS truly worth $1,000 of your hard-earned? Apple certainly hopes you'll think so, and there's no doubt this is an utterly premium smartphone. But there's no getting away from that price-tag. The XS is Apple’s newest phone, replacing 2017’s iPhone X and sitting between the enormous XS Max and cheaper XR. The XS is a big phone for Apple in more ways than one – it has a sizeable 5.8-inch screen. But, it’s a big departure, too. Together with the XS Max and XR, this phone sees the company completely abandoning the older design first seen on 2014’s iPhone 6. There’s no more Home Button, and certainly no headphone jack. You're unlikely to be disappointed by the finished product – it's a gorgeous, top-of-the-line phone with a blisteringly fast processor at its heart. Read on to learn if it's the right phone for you.
- Big, pin-sharp screen
- Powerful processor
- Impressive camera
- Might be too large for some
- Portrait Mode isn’t picture perfect
- Doesn’t always make the most of its screen size
