Apple iPhone XS, XS Max, XR size comparison vs iPhone 8, 8 Plus, Galaxy S9, S9+, Note 9, OnePlus 6
The wait is over and Apple's latest batch of iPhones is finally here. Possibly one of the bigger refreshes of the iPhone lineup in the past few years, the 2018 iPhone family inherits its sleek looks from the path-making iPhone X and spans it over to three different size variations.


iPhone XS - the smallest one


The smallest new iPhone, the 5.8-inch iPhone XS, stands and is pretty much similar to the iPhone X in terms of size. That's fortunate, as the already great screen-to-body ratio of the device means it's one of the most efficient 5.8-inch phones you will be able to get in autumn 2018. But how does the smallest new iPhone stack up against its rivals? Our nifty size comparison tool is here to provide you with a visual representation of what the device looks like next to its rivals.

iPhone XR - middle of the road


Second in size comes the more affordable 6.1-inch iPhone XR, which boasts an LCD display and a lonely single camera at the back. Of course, these cut corners have allowed Apple to slap a much more affordable price tag on that device, which could very well be a recipe for success with those consumers not willing to break the bank on a $999+ iPhone but are still sort of locked in the ecosystem. But how big is the seemingly-enticeable iPhone XR, exactly?

iPhone XS Max - the biggest one yet


And what about the largest new puppy, the iPhone XS Max? The iPhone with the largest display so far certainly does look imposing, but it turns out it's not such an excessive gadget at all. Actually, it isn't much larger than the Plus iPhone models from the past few years - the iPhone 6 Plus, 6s Plus, 7 Plus, and 8 Plus. This would certainly make the phone a much more entice-able buy.

This means you get much more display real estate in the same general footprint, which is a win-win situation in any case.

I really like the size of the max. I think if iOS was on other devices I might wonder but I still like the build quality of my x so this will be my phone for a while

Apple just officially kill iX, 5.5 plus and Touch ID. I found Touch ID quite more useful then FaceID.

5. thxultra

Posts: 451; Member since: Oct 16, 2014

I found the opposite only issue with Face ID that I have had is when it is really sunny out. Touch ID doesn't work when you sweat though. I would rather use Face ID for this reason.

7. Vokilam

Posts: 1181; Member since: Mar 15, 2018

I like face is better than fp sensors and iris scanner: it’s faster than iris scanner by a little bit on average (used iris scanner for years), and with fp sensors doesn’t work well for 8 hours of the day when I’m painting or caulking, or working on the car. I love that I can tap on screen and it unlocks - with my Samsung note - I get dirt and oils into the button to wake it when trying to unlock the device using iris or fp sensor. Just saying that Apple solved a huge everyday problem for me with Face ID.

Samsung has accessibility feature that allows to wake the device by waving your hand over top of the screen.

The Xr seems to be the perfect fit. The Xs Max is kinda bulky to me, plus the excessive pricing makes an immediate Nope.

6. thxultra

Posts: 451; Member since: Oct 16, 2014

I think Apple is delaying the XR on purpose because I think most will want it because of the different colors and also I don't think most care if the screen is LCD or OLED. Think the 5.8 will be a hard sell with the 6.1 being cheaper.

8. Vokilam

Posts: 1181; Member since: Mar 15, 2018

I think they’re delaying on purpose too, to push the sales of XS and XS Plus-Max-Pro versions first (I hate the naming scheme). I think the XR will take the cake this year. As far as I’ve seen (except for a few individuals on tech sites) - absolutely no one cares for OLED vs LCD screens.

18. Leo_MC

Posts: 7243; Member since: Dec 02, 2011

There is too little difference bergen the 2 to matter. In 2, maybe 3 years there is going to be a different storry, because LCD is a mature tech, while oled is rather new, but by that time we might see another tech emerge (maybe micro led). I also think the XR is the model to buy this year, if you're in a market for a new iPhone; I don't like the fact that it lacks 3D touch, but if it is replaced by something else, it's ok.

20. Vokilam

Posts: 1181; Member since: Mar 15, 2018

I know and it doesn’t always work on first swipe - so you end up waving again. No thanks. Tap on screen is more assuring and does what you need instead of waking the screen when you don’t want to, and not waking when you do.

"Actually, it isn't much larger than the Plus-sized iPhones from the past few years - the iPhone 6Plus, 6s Plus, 7 Plus, and 8 Plus." However the dimensions when comparing he Xs Max to the 8 Plus are exactly the same. So is it larger at all?

Luis, you an Audi fan? Specifically 80’s models?

12. darkkjedii

Posts: 30972; Member since: Feb 05, 2011

Which model are you going for? I think they’re great, but I got nothing I wanted, so I’m keeping my X. I may get the 44mm GPS watch though, for when I wanna take my X. I wanted true split screen multitasking, picture in picture, Pencil support, and symbols on the keyboard.

13. Vokilam

Posts: 1181; Member since: Mar 15, 2018

Oh no, I’ve decided to go back to note series again after seeing note 9.

14. darkkjedii

Ok, I didn't know your thoughts on the Note 9.

10. Vokilam

Posts: 1181; Member since: Mar 15, 2018

I’ve noticed Apple hiding (not showing) the notch in its promo photos - that’s good, maybe they will work harder to minimize it or get rid of it faster.

We all knew. Its the same story with every S version 4S, 5S...6S. Apple is scared of the Note 9 so had to make a Max model LOL

16. Vokilam

Posts: 1181; Member since: Mar 15, 2018

Yep, note 9 sales trump iPhones larger phones so bad that Apple got scared... oh wait!
