There are various factors that contribute to how fast our phones are, and RAM plays a role in that by allowing more apps and processes to be stored in its memory, allowing for quick retrieval when needed. We have seen instances where having not enough RAM can result in phones not being as fast as they could, so by that logic, does having more RAM mean it’ll be faster?
Smartphones with dual SIM support aren’t new, and neither are eSIMs, however with the iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max, Apple combined them together by finally introducing iPhones with support for dual SIM, but making one of the SIM card “slots” an eSIM. So far AT&T and Verizon have launched their support for it, and now it looks like T-Mobile has done the same as well.
Until companies can find a way to place the smartphone’s earpiece, camera, and front facing camera directly under the screen of the phone itself, the notch design is here to stay. For some this is an unfortunate reality, although many have since gotten used to it or have made peace with it.
Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro is one powerful handset based on our reviews, and a recent blind smartphone camera test saw it beat out the competition which included Apple’s iPhones. So the question is, with all these accolades and power under the hood, will it beat the iPhone Xs Max in a speed test?
There have been various claims suggesting that Apple’s new iPhones for 2018, the iPhone XR, Xs, and Xs Max aren’t selling as well as many, including Apple and their investors, would like. Given that Apple doesn’t plan to share figures of its iPhone sales anymore, we guess we’ll never really know 100% how many units they might have sold.
One of the new features of Apple’s iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and the XR is dual SIM, where models in the US rely on a single physical SIM and an eSIM for the second one. While this saves space internally and makes it easier to switch carriers, the only downside is that carriers will need to support the feature.
When Apple announced the iPhone XR and iPhone Xs, they announced that their new iPhones would support dual SIM. However unlike most dual SIM smartphones that actually rely on dual physical SIM cards, the new iPhones will instead rely on one physical SIM and one eSIM (China’s version is the exception as it will use dual physical SIMs).
Mobile photographers looking to take their mobile photography to the next level are probably familiar with Moment. For those who aren’t, Moment is a company that specializes in high-quality camera lens attachments for mobile phones. The only problem was how you would attach those lenses.
It seems that Apple really wants its customers to buy its new iPhones because according to a report from MacRumors, it looks like Apple is offering up customers more credit when they trade in an older iPhone and are looking to get either the iPhone XR or the iPhone Xs. Note that this is a limited time offer so you might want to move fast.
We’ve seen how Apple’s iPhone Xs Max stacks up against some of the flagship Android phones launched in 2018. However we’re sure that many are curious to see if it will be a complete victory for Apple, or if there could be a flagship launched in 2018 that has the potential to beat the A12 Bionic chipset.
Apple’s new iPhone XS appears to be doing quite well. iPhones are more than just smartphones in some circles. They are often regarded as symbols of wealth and status. The iPhone is a highly desired smartphone globally for that reason as well. An iPhone XS customer in Russia decided to make his purchase of the device memorable by paying for it with a bathtub full of coins.
For the most part, the differences between the iPhone Xs and the iPhone XR are pretty well-known, where the iPhone XR uses an LCD screen versus the iPhone Xs which uses an OLED screen. It also has less RAM and uses a single-camera setup, but otherwise for the most part both phones are almost identical, at least on the surface.
For many years, Apple has kept its iPhone and iPad displays the same size at 3.5-inches and 9.7-inches respectively. This mean that in terms of developing apps for either device, developers really only had two screen sizes to contend with. However Apple has since expanded their lineup which means a variety of screen sizes and resolutions to consider.
The price difference between the iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR is huge and represents several hundred dollars that you could save and put towards something else. However the question is, is the cheaper iPhone XR worth it, especially since it seems to “sacrifice” certain features like the dual rear-facing cameras.
