Apple iPhone XS – Long-Term Review and Report

While the Apple X – introduced 15 months ago – was the most radical design of the line since Steve Jobs spoke of combining an iPod, a phone, and a computer in one device ten years earlier, it was also in my opinion and that of my colleagues a gigantic beta test.

Among the issues that arose with the device were incoming call delays, buzzing speakers, finger swipes not being recognized in cold weather, Face ID failures, and, most recently, multiple reported instances that the iPhone X’s OLED screen would not respond to touch.

With the introduction of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR in the fall, the problem-plagued iPhone X was relegated to the discontinued bin of history.



Here’s our long-term look at the iPhone XS.

While the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus – introduced at the same time in the fall of 2017 – were internally the same, the iPhone XS has a markedly improved dual camera, a faster processor, faster Face ID (than the X), and dual-SIM support.

It’s important to note that the current crop of iPhones – the XS, XS Max, and XR – have the same new processor, same upgraded camera sensors, and same image signal processor. The XR is the “affordable” iPhone with a starting price of $749. Unlike the XS and XS Max, the XR has a single-lens camera and a lower-resolution LED screen instead of the XS’ OLED.
