iPhone XS Max vs iPhone 11 Pro Comparison

How does the iPhone 11 Pro shape up against the iPhone XS Max?

Released just a year apart, which of these two phones is better? The bigger iPhone XS Max or the newer but smaller iPhone 11 Pro. Let’s take a look.

iPhone XS Max – it’s all about the screen

The iPhone XS Max was Apple’s biggest ever phone when it was released, and the X series was the first to have the new edge-to-edge OLED screen. What a screen! Gorgeous sharp, bright images and 6.5 inches of viewing space. A masterpiece wrapped up in a glass and aluminum shell. Of course, that gorgeous screen became the standard, so the iPhone 11 Pro has the same screen and the same experience, but being a much smaller phone, it only has a 5.8-inch screen, although it is tougher with a glass and stainless steel shell. The iPhone 11 Pro only weighs 20 g less than the iPhone XS Max, but it's 14 mm shorter and 6 mm narrower, making it a good choice if you prefer a smaller phone.

iPhone 11 Pro – a fast phone with excellent cameras

The iPhone 11 Pro has a newer, faster processor than the iPhone XS Max, the A13 bionic compared to the A 12 bionic. Memory-wise you get the same 4 GB on both phones, but the iPhone 11 Pro has the edge on battery life. It will last around 30 hours with average use, that’s approximately 5 hours more than the iPhone XS Max. You also get a camera upgrade with an additional 12 MP ultra-wide lens. The iPhone XS Max has 2 X 12 MP rear cameras with a wide and telephoto lens. As for the front camera, on the iPhone XS Max you get a 7 MP front camera and HD video recording, on the iPhone 11 Pro you get a 12 MP selfie camera and 4K video recording.
