iPhone XS Max vs iPhone 11 Pro Max Comparison

Should you choose the iPhone 11 Pro Max vs XS Max?

When comparing the iPhone 11 Pro Max vs XS Max, you may notice that the refurbished iPhone 11 Pro Max is slightly more expensive than its older predecessor, but is it really worth the extra money?

The biggest difference between the iPhone 11 Pro Max vs XS Max: battery life

The iPhone XS Max is no slouch when it comes to battery life: it can easily last a full day without needing to recharge, and can get around 10 hours of battery life during continuous web surfing. But with the iPhone 11 Pro Max, Apple decided to take the meaning of “long battery life” to the next level. During continuous web surfing, you could expect to get an additional 5 hours of battery life, which is honestly a huge jump.

Another big difference between iPhone XS Max vs 11 Pro: camera performance

Not only does the iPhone 11 Pro totally blow away the XS Max when it comes to battery life, but it’s a similar story when you compare camera performance. Yes, the 11 Pro Max’s cameras have more megapixels, but that’s just part of the story. The iPhone 11 Pro Max has been equipped with much smarter image processing than the XS Max, so you can expect colors to be more accurate, lighting to be more consistent throughout the image, better low-light photos, sharper details, and a totally revamped video mode that many reviewers praised upon launch.

iPhone 11 Pro Max vs XS Max: an easy choice

Because of the greatly improved battery life and camera performance, we’d say that it’s easy to say that it’s easy to validate paying slightly more to get the 11 Pro Max vs XS Max. And thanks to the refurbished market, you can expect the price of the refurbished iPhone 11 Pro Max to consistently drop, while still giving you comparable quality as you would expect from a brand-new iPhone.
