IPhone XS teardown shows few changes aside from the battery

Samsung in the past has supplied memory chips for Apple's iPhones and was believed by analysts to be the sole supplier of the costly displays for last year's iPhone X.

Expectedly so, Apple fans not only from the UAE but also from outside the country have kicked off the iPhone frenzy in the country.

US -based Qualcomm, the world's largest mobile phone chipmaker, has in turn accused Apple of patent infringement. An edge-to-edge screen? You'll need the upcoming budget iPhone XR or one of its more expensive siblings. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max wirelessly charge faster than the iPhone X, but that's thanks to an improvement in efficiency, not a more powerful charger.

Yes, it doesn't sound a lot but this is the biggest battery ever on an iPhone. A new feature called Smart HDR shoots a four-frame buffer taken at different exposures and settings and blends them together to create more detailed shots - similar to an existing feature on the Google Pixel 2. Moreover, the customers in United States have started receiving notifications regarding the new iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, which is slated to arrive by September 21.

Long story short: One iPhone XS Max survived being in a bowl of fresh water for 30 minutes with no visible damage.

"In general, it's a good idea to keep an old smartphone as a backup in case your shiny new model breaks for any reason", suggests BensBargains, "but you can certainly reuse it elsewhere in your life at the same time".

Just buy a two-year-old iPhone 7.

Qualcomm said in July that Apple meant to exclusively use "competitor's modems" in its next iPhone release. And would you just look at that battery?

If you're on the fence, consider the iPhone XS or XS Max as a several-year investment. "Sin Tat Plaza should offer HK$300-400 [US$38-51] higher than the original price, according to my experience", he said, referring to the shopping centre in Mong Kok where numerous phone fix and accessories shops are located.
