iPhone X vs iPhone XS Comparison

Should you buy the iPhone X or XS? They really are very similar

It’s easy to compare the iPhone X vs XS because they are both very similar phones. Yes, the iPhone XS is a very slight upgrade of the iPhone X: you can expect a slightly faster and more energy-efficient processor (don’t expect a lot more battery life, you’ll probably only get about 30 minutes of more use out of the iPhone XS), a better portrait mode when snapping photos, a slightly better rating for water resistance, a 25% increase in speaker volume, and reportedly faster face recognition. What does all this mean? It means you’re just getting a slight boost over the iPhone X; both of these phones look and feel virtually the same. We suggest buying the refurbished iPhone XS over the iPhone X, but if you want to save more money or have a smaller budget, the refurbished iPhone X is also a great buy :)
