If you watched this year's iPhone launch event, you could've been forgiven for thinking that the iPhone XS is the most underwhelming 'S' upgrade in the iPhone's history. Apple spent surprisingly little time talking about the new features of the flagship iPhone models — a lot more information has come out since, which makes them seem like bigger upgrades than one had initially thought.

  • Excellent Phone
    Rishi Sukheja (Mar 4, 2019) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Whenever apple launches a new phone, it is always better than their last one. I phone XS is much faster with much better display. The only challenge is that apple has launched dual sim but forget to launch apps for dual sim phones like watsapp and other apps.

  • Excellent device
    Gunjan Kumar (Oct 20, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Best ever smartphone by the premium brand such as Apple. Appears to be costly, but someone looking for class should not care for it.

  • Just superb
    Pranav (Oct 25, 2018) on Amazon
    I use lot of apple products and keep updating. Now migrated from iPhone 7plus to xs.The handling is easy, feel is extremely premium. After 4s, the back is glass again which I like.Screen is bit smaller and you feel that as compared to plus size.The screen notch is good to look but deal with some compromise like battery life, date is not visible on home. For that you have to swipe.Rest All is just amazing.
