How we tested
iPhone-XS has a “better” screen, but it is barely noticeable
in comparison with the iPhone 11 6.1-inch screen, the iPhone XS is a 5.8-inch display and is smaller, thinner and lighter. The screen is technically better on paper, as in a sharper resolution and a higher pixel density (for special numbers, scroll to the spec chart below).
The iPhone-XS also has an OLED display, while the iPhone 11 has a LCD screen. But if it is feed by watching videos on YouTube or scroll through your Instagram, have you noticed much difference with daily use. Asnoted, “Apple is doing a great job with his LCD-liquid Retina display in the iPhone 11. It doesn’t feel like a compromise, except when viewing dark images with subtle light-details”.
The iPhone 11 comes in a hand-full of bright colors, which are red, yellow, green, and purple (the last of which ison Twitter), on top of the standard black and white. The iPhone XS on the other hand, started in only black, white and gold — and even then, some of these colors may not be available from retail stores due to their lower stocks. During the phone colors may examine a superficial feature, especially when most people slap cases on their devices anyway, there’s no shame in deriving pleasure from the fun color.
winner: I’m a big fan of the iPhone 11 s candy-colored looks, but the iPhone XS has the edge due to its display.

The iPhone 11 also features, which illuminates and captures . The results are fantastic, and rival any other phone makers who have their own night-time camera modes, such as Samsung, the Bright night, and OnePlus’ Nightscape. You can still have adequate low-light photos on the iPhone XS capture, but they are grainer, and not as sharp and have more digital artifacts.
another camera upgrade on the iPhone is 11, which improves the quality of the image and optimizes the details for the shots in medium-light settings, such as in a building or room. (To see this in action, read CNET .) Video quality is smoother and more stable on the iPhone 11 as well, and its 12-megapixel front-facing camera is also better compared to the iPhone-XS-s 7-megapixel shooter. You can also use on the iPhone 11 with the selfie camera, the Apple has as “slofies.”
winner: The iPhone 11 provides useful new camera tricks, that can increase the daily photos.
iPhone 11 is faster and has a longer battery life

A U1 chip helps to the iPhone 11 with “spatial awareness” and enables it on other iPhones and more precisely in the vicinity. Thealso AirDrop allows you to prioritize the other devices so you can share files faster. The U1 chip is also believed to be the Foundation stone for a rumored.
Wi-Fi 6 is the next generation of wireless networks. As“Wi-Fi 6 supports the faster top transfer speeds, devices can send more information with each transfer… for a better, faster performance in dense, crowded environments,” and more.
