iPhone XS review: A solid upgrade to a great phone | Trusted Reviews


iPhone XS review: iPhone XS is arguably the most iterative iPhone to date but it's still worth considering, provided you can swing the high asking price.

Top-notch performance ; Phenomenal cameras ; Outstanding display ; Attractive design

Hard to spot some of Apple's improvements ; Starting price is far too high ; No fast charger in-box ; Scratches easily

Not a huge upgrade over the iPhone X, but a good choice if you're stuck on an older iPhone and fancy something new.

Apple iPhone XS review: Still a very powerful iPhone


As with all 'S' iPhone model upgrades, the iPhone XS is about bringing new processing power to a phone that already looks really good.

Faster processor ; New camera features ; Tougher glass build

Design hasn't changed ; No fast charger in the box

The Apple iPhone XS offers a faster experience, a tougher shell, and an improved camera over predecessors - though it isn't as good for photos as the iPhone 11 Pro.

Apple iPhone Xs review: A pocket powerhouse


Like all Apple products, the Xs is far from cheap - and it's no longer available to purchase from Apple

Faster than the iPhone X ; Great camera and superb video recording ; New gold colour looks fantastic

Pricey for a 5.8in smartphone

The Apple iPhone Xs, just like the Xs Max, is a fabulous smartphone. If you’re firmly an iPhone fan but prefer a smaller screen, then you won’t be disappointed.

iPhone XS review


Seems pretty similar to the iPhone X until you look real close...

Awesome camera ; Powerful ; Top-quality screen

Similar to iPhone X ; Battery life could be better ; The price, eh?

Familiar on the outside, hidden treats on the inside. This is the iPhone X, but better.

Apple iPhone XS


How does the iPhone XS shape up against Huawei's P20 Pro, the phone with some of the best cameras around? We compare their specs, prices and design and explain how their features differ.

There doesn't seem to be a great deal of difference with this new iPhone - even by Apple's standards. But considering the notch-wielding iPhone X earned itself a Best Buy title, can the iPhone XS build on the strengths of its predecessor and justify...

iPhone XS review


The iPhone XS is a top flagship that easily rivals anything else in 2018. It's not as exciting as the iPhone X was and the battery continues to disappoint, but otherwise it's a very dependable phone.

The iPhone XS is a refined version of the iPhone X. As such it’s nowhere near as exciting as that phone was when it launched a year earlier. Where that was a complete reinvention of the range, this is more of the same, just done slightly better and...

iPhone Xs review: Apple’s £999 middle child


A wonderful smartphone, but the launch price should rule out a day-one purchase

Buy the iPhone Xs from Carphone Warehouse
