Apple iPhone XS vs iPhone X; Should You Upgrade?


If you love smartphones you will notice the smartphone world is always changing. Phones are getting more powerful day by day. There are unlimited upgrades and improvements. Last year iPhone released an awesome phone. The best at that time. This year they have released three new amazing phones.

Anyone who is having an iPhone X is in a bit of a confusing situation. They don't know if they should upgrade or not. Some will consider buying IPhone XS. Today i will be comparing the two phones. I will let you know which is the best phone between the two.

You can read about iPhone XS right here

PERFORMANCE, BATTERY LIFE, AND CHARGING

Something that you will easily notice is that Apple upgraded to their new chip. They are using A12 Bionic processor. The new chip is really fast and more powerful than its predecessor. IPhone X was using A11 Bionic processor. Apple stated that the A12 Bionic processor is 40% more power efficient and 15% faster than the A11 Bionic processor.

In the A12 Bionic processor there is an improved Neutral Engine and there are some numerous improvements when it comes to the graphics department. Apple also decided to add an extra 1GB of RAM, this extra RAM will make iPhone XS faster and able to easily multitask.

IPhone X can comfortably handle any task thrown at it thus the extra RAM on iPhone XS doesn't make a big difference. The difference will be felt when apps and games that demand a lot of processing power get released. Apple stated that on iPhone XS apps will load 30 percent faster than on iPhone X.


The iPhone XS is expected to have a better battery life. Apple had earlier on suggested that iPhone XS will last around thirty minutes longer per day. You can always decide to fast charge iPhone X. Charging speeds on this two phones are just the same. No difference. Both the iPhone X and iPhone XS support Qi wireless charging.

 Winner: Apple iPhone XS

DESIGN AND DURABILITY

I will start by stating that these two phones really look alike. At first you can mistake the two phones. The bodies on these two phones are identical. The design is similar. There is a notch cut into the top of the 5.8 inch device. The two phones have an OLED display screen. IPhone X comes in two colors; silver and grey while iPhone XS has grey, silver and also comes in gold. You will need a case for both phones.

You can check out any iPhone X cases ans choose one that is suitable to you. IPhone XS has a tougher glass thus when it fall it may fair better than that on iPhone X. This two phones are water resistant. IPhone XS can be submerged in water for upto 2 meters deep while iPhone X can be submerged for upto just a meter. The two phones can be submerged in water for 30 mins without getting damaged.

Winner: Apple iPhone XS

DISPLAY

there is no difference here. IPhone XS and iPhone X both have an 5.8 inch OLED scren. They both have a pixel resolution of 2,436 x 1,125. They have sharp pictures which are bright and colorful. Both phones have an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 thus they have a wide screen. Their screen to body ratio is one of the highest.


Winner: Tie

CAMERA

Everyone was amazed by the dual lens camera found on iPhone X. IPhone decided to do the same with iPhone XS. IPhone XS also has a dual lens. These two phones have 2 12 megapixel lens. They also have an optical Image stabilization (OIS). one camera has an aperture of f/1.8 while the other camera has an aperture of f/2.4. They support a 2x optical zoom. The camera can capture pics when in different scenarios. You can blur the background.

The camera lens cannot compete with some phones when it comes to taking pics in low light. The lens can capture awesome pics in Potrait Mode. The sensor on iPhone XS is twice as fast.

TrueDepth support is supported on the front facing cameras. This makes the FaceID work efficiently and securely. It also has Memojis and Animojis. The FaceID on iPhone XS is said to work a little bit faster than that on iPhone X.

Winner: Apple iPhone XS

SOFTWARE AND UPDATES

IPhone XS came with iOS 12 operating system while iPhone X came with iOS 11 but you can always upgrade to iOS 12 really easily. There are regular updates from Apple thus u can easily update your phone.

IPhone XS comes with the newer iOS and it's fully updated thus wins this race.

Winner: Apple iPhone XS

SPECIAL FEATURES

The TrueDepth front facing camera is the most special feature that i can find. It helps in scanning your face. If you scan your face in the dark it will be able to scan your face and unlock the device. Apple has used the same technology for facial expressions when it comes to Animojis and Memojis. IPhone XS has a dual simcard support which will come in handy for those with numerous lines.

There are no other special features on this two phones. Nothing to really separate the two devices. They are all great phones and work well in all circumstances.

Winner: Tie

PRICE

Everytime Apple releases a new phone expect the price of the model that was released last year will drop. If you want the 64GB iPhone XS model it will cost you 1,000$. IPhone XS will be available as from September 21.

IPhone XS will be replacing iPhone X on their website, but you can get iPhone X from major retailers. Most people expect the price to drop since iPhone XS has been released.

OVERALL WINNER: APPLE IPHONE XS

Apple has really made some good improvements on their newer 2018 IPhones. IPhone XS has a better performance and battery life. There is no massive difference between the two phones.

If you have or know someone who has an iPhone X, tell them to hold on to it. There is no need to upgrade since they aren't missing out on anything major but newer is better.

The Microsoft Hub was one of the great successes of the company that created Windows when it was time to facilitate the development of work in professional environments. A team that debuted there in 2015 and that in May of this year saw a reference to his successor, although it is best to use the plural term successors ...

The reason is that we have met the two new teams that prepare Redmond. They respond to the names of Microsoft Surface Hub 2S and Surface 2X. Two models that will arrive in 2019 and 2020 respectively and although there is still time to be able to have them among us, it is worth knowing some details.

Design made in Microsoft:

And we started with the Microsoft Surface Hub 2S, a team that has been developed in order to offer the same experience as the first Surface Hub and at the same time benefit from the improvements that have appeared in these three years.

This will offer a more modern look with a more stylized design and this will result in greater ease of use, as this Surface Hub 2S will be easier to mount, either in the specific supports or if it is not possible on the wall.

In both models, we can see the concern of Redmond's to offer a careful appearance. It is a trend that we have already seen in its latest products, with a Surface Studio leading the way in the exercise of style or an Xbox One S that knew how to take a step forward in design.

The Surface Hub 2S will arrive in the second half of 2019, but be careful, because a year later we will see how the Surface Hub 2X reaches the markets. OK, we'll still have to wait a year and a half, but it will be the team that provides everything they promised in their day at Microsoft.


The 2X Surface Hub will highlight the option it offers to create multi-screen environments combining several devices. In addition, these can be rotated and offer multi-user support.

Another aspect that we do not know more details but that seems interesting is the interchangeable processor modules, a kind of cartridges that apparently will be inserted in the back of these two models of Surface Hub.

We can, therefore, buy one of the two models and with the passage of time update it just by changing one of these modules. It is a promising idea, it is true, but we do not know enough details to know exactly what its operation will be.

We will be attentive to upcoming news from Microsoft that in this sense indicate approximate launch date beyond the part of the year as well as the markets and the prices with which both teams will debut.

A smartphone with a dual screen isn't something new to the market. Last year 2017, Meizu launched its Meizu Pro 7 was which sports a dual-screen design but its secondary screen was much smaller. Aside that, Yota "Russian Smartphone Brand" has also  launch a few smartphones with this concept. But there are some differences compared to the one of Nubia dual-screen phone.

As the case may be, ZTE's Nubia has faced a whole lot of problem trying to set up their smartphones as one of the top brands in the market. Though there has been a delay in the launch of its latest flagship smartphone "Nubia Z18" but it just looks like that company has gathered back its broken pieces and they are now back on track.


However, the Nubia Z18 is going to launch a dual-screen smartphone in the nearest feature. Hence, it has managed to visit TENAA which signifies that we will be able to get our hands on it soon. Moreover, it's not going to be surprising getting more and more leaks before its official launch and thus, today is no exception to any leak. The Nubia dual-screen phone has been spotted in a spy photo again.


The Nubia dual-screen smartphone adopts a regular full-screen design on both sides. However, the back screen size is much smaller than the main screen. As seen on the leaked image above, the dual-camera is placed on the upper left corner, while the fingerprint recognition module is moved from the back to the side.

According to MIIT, the upcoming Nubia dual-screen phone will be packed with a 6.26-inch main screen that has a resolution of 2280×1080 and an aspect ratio of 19:8, while the secondary screen will be at 5.1 inches and have a resolution of 1520×720, an aspect ratio of 19:9, and a LED material.

Samsung has prepared a presentation for next October 11, and everything points to that we will attend the arrival of the future Samsung Galaxy A9 Star Pro. Which will be, if the rumors are well on track, the most powerful Galaxy A manufactured so far, and that will also premiere a system of four cameras attached to his back. A telephone whose concept, which does not have an official filtered design, is the one shown in this article.

We still have not got used to the trio located in the back of the Huawei P20 Pro and it seems that Samsung is preparing a new step forward. Four cameras that, in addition, have seen how their resolutions and uses emerge before their time. Four cameras that would form a quintet with the front and that would show that Samsung has decided to change strategy. Now the mid-line models go first in innovation.

Five lenses, four behind:

Tells the source that has leaked the information that the future Galaxy A9 Pro will have a Snapdragon 660 as the brain, an eight-core chip running at 2.2GHz and that would have a 6.38-inch screen with FullHD + resolution. We talk about Samsung, so few doubt that it will be an Infinity Display with aspect 18.7: 9 and no notch. For the battery, 3,720 mAh with fast charge. But the most interesting information is that relating to cameras.


If the information is correct, the future Galaxy A9 Pro will have four rear cameras. We would speak of the main sensor of 24 megapixels for ordinary photographs, and an 8-megapixel sensor with 120º wide-angle lens, designed to capture more surface when taking photographs, and that could combine the data captured with those of the main lens to work with a greater luminosity.

These two sensors would have another couple accompanying them. A pair of 10 and 5 megapixels, with long lenses offering optical zoom. It has not transcended what increases would be offered, although the logical thing, given the space limitations of a smartphone, is that they were 2X and 3X. One of these sensors would be in charge of depth reading for Samsung's Live Focus mode. That is the bokeh.

There would be a fifth camera, although this is more normal and located on the front of the phone. For selfies, Samsung would opt for 24 megapixels with 120º wide-angle lens, so that self-portraits could capture more surface, moving away from the shot and allowing cleaner captures. We will see what happens finally when the phone is presented. Recall, on October 11 will definitely leave doubts.

Along with mobile phones, the SIM card has also evolved since its inception in 1991. From the size of a credit card, it went to the mini-SIM or the classic SIM that started to shrink in size, first to the microSIM and then to the nanoSIM. And soon we can forget about all of them because the eSIM or virtual SIM has arrived to replace them.

Presented in the prolegomena of the Mobile World Congress 2016, the eSIM does not stop being a SIM but it will be embedded in the devices, without the possibility of withdrawing it. Apparently it could be a disadvantage, but the truth is that it is not like that: the eSIM has many advantages. Then we will explain in depth what is an eSIM and why it has all the ballots to mark a before and after in the world of connectivity.

From the card to the electronic component:

Although the SIM could be considered the heart of any mobile phone, the obsession of manufacturers to shrink space inside smartphones to reduce their thickness (and now the frames) has also affected the cards. The miniSIM arrived in 1996, but it was not until the launch of the iPhone 4 that we moved to the microSIM and to the iPhone 5 when we made the jump to the nanoSIM.

The truth is that reducing the size of the SIM was a simple task because besides being able to rush its size by eliminating redundant plastic, the fact is that even the chip itself was larger than strictly necessary, reducing with the nanoSIM. But in a turn of the screw, the GSMA, a global association of operators and manufacturers, agreed to shelve the SIM and become an integrated element in the devices, in chip format welded to the plate.

With only six by five millimeters and the same thickness of a nanoSIM (0.67 millimeters), the eSIM saves space not only because of its smaller size compared to previous formats, since with it also disappears the classic tray or pins that acted as a contact with the chip. And that is an advantage for classic devices, smartphones or tablets, but above all, it is for other types of devices, which will now have easier to integrate an eSIM for its small size. And we talk about almost anything, from watches and bracelets to a multitude of "things" that are now not connected.

Beyond the reduction in size:

So far we have mainly talked about downsizing and the possibilities that this opens, but the advantages of the eSIM go much further. One of them is very obvious: goodbye to thinking about what kind of card (when everyone has the eSIM) will take our new device to adapt our card to him. In addition, the pins that read the usual SIM are especially fragile and difficult to replace so less risk. No less advantage will be to forget to look for a pin to open the SIM card.

And we do not want to leave for later a doubt that surely goes through many heads, how are we going to change the operator if the eSIM cannot be removed from our mobile? The portabilities will be even simpler since it will be enough to tell the operator that we are going to change the numbering of the eSIM (the famous ICCID of 19 or 20 digits that is printed on the current cards) of our device to associate it.

Of course, this does not mean that the deadlines to change the operator will be shortened, because the regulator of each country establishes the process and deadlines for a portability, and they will depend on changing the times. Another thing is that we no longer have to wait patiently for a postman or messenger or go to a point of sale to get the new SIM, because the same eSIM that we can use with one operator can be used with another.

And there is a point we have been promised that can be made, which we hope will be possible when the eSIM reaches smartphones: the possibility of associating it with more than one operator from different countries. We Europeans who travel through the old continent may find it unnecessary, for the purpose of payment roaming, but it would be very useful to travel abroad or for users from other countries.

Last, but not least, the eSIM will also make it easier to associate the same number with different devices. In addition to being useful to receive calls of the same number in all our devices, it will also make it easier to have a single rate for all of them.

First assault: tablets and watches:

All of the above is fine, but what about the eSIM? Which devices already have one? Why has not it reached smartphones yet? Let's answer each one of the questions. More than two years have passed since the presentation of the eSIM and the truth is that its impact is still very limited. The promise was that wearables adopt it in a matter of months, to reach smartphones in 2017, but it has not been like that.


It was the Samsung Gear S2 the smartwatch that was made with the title of the first wearable with an integrated eSIM, which among other operators from different countries Orange marketed in Spain. That was almost a pilot test, with limited units that were sold in a small number of sales channels, and it has not been until now when Orange has decided to bet heavily on the eSIM, now integrated into the Huawei Watch 2.

If you look at the tablets, Apple got the title of the first tablet with eSIM with the iPad Pro of 9.7 inches, but curiously also has room for a nanoSIM. Of course, the possibilities offered by this eSIM today are still very limited, with few compatible operators and rates that are not exactly the cheapest. And if Apple has a Google title it would not be less, being the Pixel 2 the first smartphones with eSIM, although it is only compatible with its own OMV, Project fi.

The new generation of Apple phones, consisting of the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max, and also the iPhone Xr with LCD, incorporates the new eSIM, In addition, they have announced that Vodafone will be among the operators that will support it, so it is a matter of time.

2019 aims to be the year of the eSIM:

The eSIM seems not to take off and is that in addition to crossing the difficulty of making such an important jump in an industry with many actors, has also crossed the intention of the GSMA to allow the eSIM can be blocked. The association surrendered to the demands of AT & T and Verizon, US operators that are still betting on the terminal subsidy, but the country's Department of Justice intervened, which caused the paralysis of the development of the eSIM.


Despite these stones on the road, everything points to 2019 will be the year of the eSIM, and may begin to be included in high-end smartphones that are presented at the Mobile World Congress or upcoming dates. We will even see the eSIM expand in the portable and convertible sector. There could be a transition period in which we see both an eSIM and a slot for nanoSIM in smartphones, giving operators time to adapt to the virtual card, but the arrival of the eSIM, although slow, is already unstoppable.

Earlier this year, Sony and its Santa Monica Studio delivered a massive hit in God of War. The game proved to be so popular upon release that it became the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive ever, selling an impressive 3.1 million copies in its first three days of availability.

It seemed like God of War would hold the record of fastest-selling PS4 exclusive for quite some time – selling 3.1 million copies in three days is no small achievement, after all – but then Insomniac came along with Spider-Man to snatch the record away.

According to USA Today, Spider-Man has managed to sell 3.3 million copies in its first three days of retail availability, making it slightly more successful than God of War at launch. The difference isn’t massive, and it can probably be explained by the enduring popularity of Spider-Man in the half-century since he first debuted.

Sony also said that one million copies of the game were pre-ordered ahead of release, which happens to be another record. Stephen Turvey, who serves as PlayStation’s global senior vice president of sales and head of North American business operations, told USA Today that his company is more than pleased with Insomniac’s finished product. “It’s met and exceeded all expectations,” Turvey said. “I think the company and the campus and our fans are super proud of it.”

So, if there was ever any question as to whether or not there will be a sequel, we can probably lay the matter to rest. Before that can happen, though, Insomniac has a batch of post-launch DLC to deliver. It detailed this story-based DLC shortly before the game launched, saying that “The City that Never Sleeps” will focus on Black Cat’s return to New York across three different episodes.

The first episode of The City that Never Sleeps will launch in late October, with the other two episodes following in November and December. For now, we’re not sure if this is the only paid DLC Spider-Man will receive, but we do know that a New Game Plus mode is also on the way. At last check, it sounded like Insomniac is close to finished with New Game Plus mode, so we’ll keep an eye out for more information on that front.

The portrait mode of the camera that includes the vast majority of high-end phones (and many mid-range) has become one of its best claims in the market. And is that in a time when we share so many photos on social networks, having a phone that makes good portraits is a pleasure.

Unfortunately, not all phones have a portrait or bokeh modes that give us such fabulous results as those of these flagships, but with a series of guidelines when executing the photo and some later editing, we can get some pretty interesting portraits. We are going to use three completely different phones and we will show you how with any of them we can make a decent portrait, at least, to upload to Instagram.

To accompany the theory we will show you several images taken with four phones of different ranges and with completely different optics. These terminals are the Nokia 8, the Alcatel 7, the iPhone 6s Plus and a very strong rival, the iPhone 8 Plus. Since the last iPhone boasts a portrait mode that should give us excellent results, we have taken the photographs with him without following the guidelines that we are going to give you next, in order to show you how necessary it is to have a good camera in between the hands is to know how to use it.

The importance of framing and of course, of light:

One of the first things that can destroy a portrait (and any photograph in reality) is a bad framing. The framing, in photography, alludes to the portion of the scene that we are going to capture, something like a stage. It does not matter if we take the photograph vertically or horizontally, the important thing is that we take a few seconds to give it a balanced frame, not cut the head of the model and that everything flows within the scene.

We are not talking about the golden ratio or the rule of the thirds, but something much simpler: common sense. If we are doing a portrait we have to give prominence to the model, we can not cut parts of his face or body or portray him surrounded by objects that take away relevance within the scene.

But more important almost that the frame is light. And is that light is the essence of photography (literally) and if we do not work well with it no matter the camera or phone we have, the results can be disastrous. At the time of making portraits the ideal (unless we have study light) is natural light, but be careful with this one that can also be dangerous.

And is that if we are going to make portraits in full sunlight we should not do it in the highest hours of the day, because we run the risk of running into too dark shadows on the faces. The ideal? The days are a bit cloudy, because the clouds act as diffusers of natural light, wonderfully softening the shadows.

Of course, it goes without saying that the flash is the number one enemy of the portraits (however much they insist on integrating it in the front cameras), if there is no other we can use it and then add some editing with software (that will be our last paragraph) to counteract its effects, but ideally we should avoid as much as possible as if it were the devil.

No to zoom, yes to focus:

Another thing that we must flee from when we make portraits of the zoom. For many improvements that mobile phones have integrated, the zoom continues to make us lose quality in the final result and the only thing that we will end up with is a portrait full of noise, so let's get closer, let's play with the plans and again , let's take care of the frame.

We say no to zoom but yes to focus. Ideally, we approach manually and look for what we want to focus on in the portrait, what we are interested in highlighting. In addition, the manual approach gives us the possibility to unleash our creativity, being able to play and enjoy much more to make portraits.

Pepper with a little editing:

In the previous photo, we can see the samples taken with the four different cameras and we see how, for example, the Alcatel A7 leaves us with a somewhat "sad" color reproduction. However, this and any photo is susceptible to improvement with a little editing above.

In-app stores we find a lot of photo editors focused on the portrait, but sometimes have too many useless modes and give us results somewhat exaggerated. For this type of photography, I personally recommend Snapseed.

And is that this editor, besides being one of the most complete that we can find nowadays, incorporated relatively recently a complete function dedicated to portraits that allow us to highlight and soften traits and even focus on specific areas.

The photographer lives not only from the camera:

After reviewing some of the key points to make portraits with the mobile phone we come to a clear conclusion: and that is that despite the evolution of cameras and that we do with the best photographic smartphone on the market, the hand and affection with the Taking a picture is always vital to obtain good results.
