iPhone XR vs iPhone 11 Pro Max Comparison

The iPhone 11 Pro Max vs the iPhone XR: it’s the battle of big and bigger, which phone is best?

The iPhone 11 Pro Max was released a full year after the iPhone XR and was the biggest and best phone of that release, the iPhone XR was the most affordable phone for its release, so how do these two compare? The iPhone 11 Pro Max will cost you more, but you can get a great deal on either phone if you buy a refurbished model.

iPhone XR - a good all-rounder

While the iPhone XR might not set your heart aflutter it’s an excellent phone and easily able to do what most people need. It has a 6.1-inch LCD HR screen, not as fancy as the 6.5-inch OLED screen on the iPhone 11 Pro Max, but still Apple’s best-ever LCD screen. It has 2 x 12 MP rear cameras with a wide angle lens and portrait mode, great for taking pics of your loved ones. It has a 7 MP selfie camera. 3 GB of RAM and an A12 bionic processor, which is pretty fast. Of these two phones, the iPhone XR is smaller, it measures 150.9 x 75.7 mm and weighs 194 g. The iPhone 11 Pro Max measures 158 x 77.8 mm and weighs 32 g more. The iPhone XR also has an excellent battery life, around 33 hours of average use.

iPhone 11 Pro Max

What does the iPhone 11 Pro max have that the iPhone XR doesn’t? Well, it’s made from stainless steel instead of aluminum so it’s tougher than the iPhone XR, it also has more memory, 4 GB Ram, and a faster processor, the A13 bionic. It has a total of 4 x 12 MP rear cameras and offers 2 x optical zoom, an ultra-wide, and a telephoto lens. It also has a 12 MP front camera with True Depth technology and 4K video. Those pics of your loved ones just got an upgrade.  In addition, the iPhone 11 Pro Max has an even longer battery life, around 4 hours more than the iPhone XR, and it’s enabled for Wi-Fi 6.

The winner?

There’s no denying that the iPhone 11 Pro Max is a more advanced phone, but if you’re looking to save a bit of cash, you can’t go far wrong with the iPhone XR.
