iPhone XS Max Price in Bangladesh and Specifications

Review

The iPhone XS Max price in Bangladesh is reasonable. Because it returned to the past of Apple but with all the present time of a design without frames and with an OLED panel. There are two sizes of all-screen phones: 5.8 and 6.5 inches, with a powerful A12 Bionic chip. They also have new dual-camera systems that take better pictures than ever before.

Even though the proportions of the iPhone X in terms of dimensions and screen seemed very adequate and definitive for a few years, the iPhone XS Max puts Apple back on the path of terminals with a huge and immeasurable screen. At Engadget, we have already thoroughly tested it to be able to tell you what is good and bad about the new iPhone XS Max, a model that fully pilots at a 6.5-inch diagonal and the controversy surrounding its high price.

iPhone XS Max price in Bangladesh

The Apple iPhone XS Max price in Bangladesh (BD price) starts at BDT 1,02,000, which has 64GB of storage, BDT 1,21,000, which has 128GB of storage, BDT 1,39,000, which has 256GB of storage, and BDT 1,75,000, which has 512GB of storage. Both of the variants have 4GB of RAM.

People say that the iPhone XS Max price in BD is higher than other phones with the same specifications in the market. But experts say that the iPhone performs better than any other phone on the market. So, if you are looking for a performance-oriented phone, then you should buy the iPhone without any hesitation. You can also buy an iPhone 10 if your budget is low.

The Apple iPhone XS Max was released on September 21, 2018. This was the most modern and highly-priced phone on the market at that time.

Details of the iPhone XS Max Display (Screen)

Last year, Apple brought the biggest design innovation to its iPhone since its launch. It was a big deal because it was the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone. Finally, the Apple terminal lost some frames that had been hurting it for years, and Face ID and gestures on the screen made it easier to use.

On that unique iPhone X, the screen was reduced to 5.8 inches. The Plus model was partially lost (it still existed in the iPhone 8 family), which, among other improvements, offered a larger screen.

Choosing the iPhone XS Max only means having a larger screen. Everything else remains the same between the iPhone XS and Max.

The return this year of the model with more screen comes with excellent news: more screen does not always mean better camera performance. Thus, choosing between the iPhone XS and XS Max is already just a matter of preferring a screen of more or fewer inches.

iPhone-XS-Max-Screen

In 2018, the iPhone with more screens returns in a big way in every way: more powerful, with more screens, a better camera, and also a higher price. The iPhone XS Max also houses the dual-SIM system, although in a hybrid way.

Apple introduces the eSIM, or virtual SIM, on its phone to supplement the physical nanoSIM, allowing users to use two different mobile lines concurrently. This second line can be set up by scanning a QR code that the operator has given you.

Apple has modified aspects of iOS 12 so that the user can manage this double line, being able to choose in the contacts which number to make the calls by default, identify the line to which the incoming call arrives, or activate/deactivate the lines separately when the user wants.

Doubts arise about how this feature will work in third-party apps, and how they will decide when and how it will be available.

All-glass construction and an OLED display

If it weren’t for its physical dimensions, it would be impossible to detect the new iPhone XS Max among several iPhone Xs. The exterior is identical except for the details of the gold color that is now available and small changes in the antennas.

On the iPhone XS Max in gold, you have to forget to think of it as something bizarre. It is a very pleasant tone to look at, discreet, and at the same time different.

The iPhone XS Max has dimensions almost identical to those of the iPhone Plus of previous generations. It is almost as tall, slightly wider, and heavier (208 grams), but slightly thinner.

The size of the iPhone XS Max allows you to enjoy its large screen, but it is not the terminal for those who seek to operate the phone with one hand.

Based on this data and our experience during this week of use, the iPhone XS Max is a massive device that we cannot use discreetly or comfortably carry in our pockets. Yes, it has been comfortable in hand and nothing heavy, despite its weight of more than 200 grams, due to the good distribution of weight in all its dimensions, as well as the smooth lines and exquisitely finished points.

Although the glass on the back is not slippery at all (it grips your hand amazingly), the width of the iPhone XS Max makes it somewhat uncomfortable to operate with one hand.

The level of construction leaves no doubt about the range in which it is located. According to Apple, the protection glass, both on the back and the screen has been modified to increase resistance to drops, bumps, and scratches at the same time. We will have to compare it to last year’s iPhone X, on whose screen you could see the passage of time after fairly intensive use. In a terminal with the highest price in the consumer market, one always expects the maximum.

The camera module continues to protrude from the profile, so when placed on the table and depending on where you rest your fingers, the iPhone XS Max rocks slightly. Based on the experience of a year of use of the iPhone X, there is no need to fear the resistance of the protection of the camera for a long time spent on the table. Hopefully, that sapphire protection will extend to the rest of the terminal.

Another novelty of the design is its resistance to water and dust. It goes from an IP67 certification to an IP68, which, translated into common language, means that the spillage of liquids, even those that are not water, is not a problem. The theory says that with that protection, we could submerge the iPhone XS Max two meters deep for half an hour.

Top-notch OLED

If someone wanted an iPhone with a screen larger than 6 inches without looking like a tablet, the iPhone XS Max responds to that request. The diagonal grow from 5.5 to 6.5 inches, adding 21% more surface than in Plus models, with an elongated ratio of 19.5:9, and without missing the notch, which occupies less than 2% of the total surface of the panel.

The screen has a resolution of 26881242 pixels, which translates into a density of 458 dpi, the same as the iPhone XS model.

Although with more than 450 dpi pixel density, there is not much room for improvement in terms of sharpness at the typical distance of use of the smartphone, we have been left with the desire to enjoy a higher resolution that will leave us more content on that large diagonal.

That would be a good argument in favor of this size of the screen (and terminal), and not only what it means right now, which is reduced to the same content as in the XS model, but with a larger size. The only things we are grateful for are having a larger keyboard with which it is more comfortable to type, the ability to enjoy multimedia content, and just a few details of select applications that use landscape mode to optimize the use of the terminal.

One of the strengths of the OLED screen of the iPhone XS Max is the reproduction and color fidelity, adjusted at all times according to the sRGB and DCI-P3 spaces. There is no shortage of Night Shift and True Tone modes, as well as HDR support (HDR10 and Dolby Vision).

Another highlight of the iPhone XS Max screen is the brightness level, which, according to DisplayMate, even exceeds 700 nits, which, together with the typical contrast of OLED technology, makes it have excellent visibility outdoors, also with few reflections. Of course, we will often be the ones who raise the brightness to the maximum manually.

As for the viewing angles, they are very high, although at the extremes we can already see a cooling of the screentone when the background is white or very light. In any case, as in other top-level OLED screens, it is a barely noticeable defect, with almost no difference in the eyes of the consumer between the best OLED screens on the market and one that is easy to forget on a day-to-day basis.

color fidelity, contrast, brightness, and above all, excellent outdoor visibility.

The multimedia section of this iPhone XS Max is completed with the improved stereo sound through the speakers. The total power and stereo effect are more pronounced than in the previous generation, so we can use them without fear, although without the reference, that would mean having those full speakers in front of the screen.

The iPhone XS Max’s A12 Bionic chip

Apple adds and continues in its long-distance race in the championship of design and construction of chips for smartphones. The A12 Bionic is its latest offspring. It is the first to be born under 7nm manufacturing, and it has six cores. Two of them are dedicated to performance, while the other four are more focused on delivering efficiency.

As with every new generation of Apple chips, there is an advance in performance that translates into better benchmark figures, although there is not a jump in gross power as prominent as between previous generations. The theory tells us that Apple has focused more on efficiency and results in graphics (now with four cores for the GPU, also designed by Apple) and machine learning.

Apple has put the brakes on improving raw performance on the new A12 Bionic to focus on efficiency, GPU, and machine learning for key elements like FaceID.

As is recurrent from iPhone to iPhone, last year’s chip, I think, would have continued to be valid for this new iPhone, but for media and commercial reasons, it was a new chip.

On a day-to-day basis, there is no way to see an improvement in performance beyond the numbers in the benchmarks, which shows that Apple once again has a lot of power.

And why so much raw power if there are no differences in the fluidity of the system? It is a question that for two years we have been asking ourselves in many reviews of high-end smartphones. The open war between smartphone manufacturers for AI and machine learning to add value to their terminals and platforms is the answer.

In the case of the iPhone XS Max, as we are going to see, this performance improvement is applied to augmented reality tasks, which in the new terminal are very fluid, as well as in Face ID and, of course, the camera.

Two faces for FaceID is not enough.

The most improved section in the A12 Bionic compared to the previous generation processors is the neural engine, now with 8 cores and a much greater processing capacity. That part is in charge of the machine learning tasks that increasingly demand extra real-time processing.

Siri, which presents the novelties of shortcuts in iOS 12, is one of the great beneficiaries, although Apple continues to advance at a slower pace than its rivals in the competitive and expectant world of virtual assistants.

Although it has improvements, FaceID continues to have situations of use that can be improved, such as when you have the terminal very close to your face.

Another functionality or service of daily use in the iPhone XS Max that should take advantage of the A12 Bionic is FaceID. The new A12 Bionic improves the recognition system, although in practice I have not noticed a change in speed or better performance. At least in situations where the previous generation had already given me problems. I am talking, for example, about identification when you have the terminal very close to your face or lying down, which is my number one problem with Apple’s face system.

On the contrary, I have noticed more effectiveness when you look at the terminal and it is on a table, even somewhat tilted. Also, when taking the terminal out of the pocket or lifting it from the table and bringing it to the face, it has gained in success and speed.

Another novelty that comes to FaceID from the hand of the new A12 Bionic is the possibility of registering up to two faces. Apple allows these to be from different people, but they warn us that if we do so, in addition to being somewhat slower, the system loses about 50% of its security.

According to Apple, the double FaceID registration has been designed for those users who, due to work or variable/personal circumstances, may have two somewhat different faces in certain situations. To make sure the system doesn’t break down or take too long to figure out what’s going on, register both things.

Battery Life of the iPhone XS Max

Although Apple does not give official figures for the capacity of its batteries, that of the iPhone XS Max seems to offer an extra mAh with which to compensate for the increase in diagonal and resolution of the screen. On paper, the iPhone XS Max offers an extra hour of autonomy compared to the non-Max model.

In our tests of real and intensive use, the battery of the iPhone XS Max has lasted well beyond the day of use, leaving us at the end of the day with more than 20% of the battery on average (yes, you will have to look at it in the center of mandatory control). With more moderate use, it would be easy to exceed a day and a half. According to our tests, we are talking about more than 6 hours of use.

The iPhone XS Max is the iPhone that gives you the most autonomy, and that right now means having no problem getting to the end of the day with more than six hours of use.

With iOS 12, the battery management on the iPhone XS Max is very complete. Apple has been more concerned with giving the user a detailed report of how, when, and where the battery is being used than with saving modes (there is one that stops apps from running in the background).

iPhone-XS-Max-Battery-performance

In the iOS 12 battery option, we have usage data for the last 24 hours or 7 days. Our screen use and activity figures can also be filtered by days or even hours. From there, we can get information about how much screen time and activity applications use, both when they’re running in the background and on the screen.

The iPhone XS Max, with its glass back, maintains wireless charging, which has improved both in speed and efficiency. However, at least with the iPhone XS Max and the Belkin charging dock, we still need the rear to be fairly aligned in the center, admitting only lateral variation but not up or down, at which point it stops charging.

This story sounds familiar. The iPhone XS Max offers improved fast charging, but to get it, the charger that comes standard is not worth it.

Regarding the iPhone XS Max charging system, although it would apply to any iPhone, we cannot stop talking about the charger that comes standard. For environmental reasons, the lighting adapter for wired headphones has been left aside, but it is incomprehensible for all intents and purposes that in a terminal with this battery capacity and above all price, the standard charger is a ridiculous model of 5W that takes more than 180 minutes to complete the charge, more even than using a wireless charger.

If we need to charge the iPhone XS Max with speed, we must opt for chargers with more watts that take advantage of the fast charge that Apple places on it. That, as standard, is almost paid for as it needs a better charger than the one that comes in the box. With a 29-W model, we can achieve that 50% in half an hour, with about 90 minutes for a full charge.

The iPhone XS Max’s iOS 12 operating system lacks exclusivity for a large screen.

The iPhone XS Max was released on the market with the new version of iOS, 12. As with the new phones, this version has minor improvements over iOS 11 if we refer to the iPhone XS and XS Max. They are concerned with security and providing more information to the user.

At the interface level, gestures such as the way to move around the system are followed, and the news is found in the notifications, which can be grouped and managed more simply. Siri now also supports more integration with third-party applications in search of the use of the phone where touching is less and less necessary.

There we have, for example, the shortcuts, the renown that Apple has given to the workflow application, one of the most interesting in the iOS ecosystem. With it, we can create complex and customizable workflows, with actions that require only one touch to go. It is the first generation, and although it works quite well, it presents a learning curve that we do not believe is valid for any user.

One of the novelties that we liked the most is the integration of password managers such as 1Password within the system flow, being able to choose between it (or others from third parties) and Apple’s keychain. The Do Not Disturb mode also supports more configuration options, some based on our use of the phone and those that the terminal itself will be in charge of managing for us.

The rest of the advances are on the side of the information that the iPhone user has about his phone. There are more details on the battery, but also on the time of use and parental control, which are the most complete that we have seen integrated into a system.

As a particularity of iOS 12 on the iPhone XS Max, it should be noted that there are hardly any advantages to having a larger screen and space for content. For now, only some of Apple’s applications, such as Messages, adopt some extra features when we have the terminal in landscape mode. A real shame because it means leaving it to third parties who want to take advantage of the 6.5 inches.

Another detail that has room for improvement is the easy reach mode. With it activated (it is in Accessibility), in theory, it would be enough to slide the lower part of the screen so that the upper part was within our reach. It is a desirable situation if we want to operate the terminal with one hand. In my case, it hasn’t worked at all, and one has to give up on that option because with Touch ID gone and gestures on the screen, it takes a lot of skill that I don’t have.

The cameras of the iPhone XS Max are more point-and-shoot, even in portrait mode.

One of Apple’s pending accounts for its new iPhone XS Max was on camera. It had deficiencies in the two key sections of it: physical and computational. And he has taken action on the matter.

Apple has updated the camera of its iPhone XS Max by making the sensor larger and improving the portrait mode, which now allows you to modify the background blur.

The first decision, necessary for a couple of generations, is correct. Apple has increased the size of the main sensor of its camera and thus equates it with most of its rivals. However, on a physical level, the king of the year is the Huawei P20 Pro, with its three great cameras.

This larger sensor size allows the iPhone XS Max camera to receive more light when taking photos, which translates into a direct improvement in indoor scenes, at night, or in general low light. The iPhone XS Max is capable of shooting at a higher ISO, which allows reducing the exposure time to avoid shaking while requiring less aggressive processing of the noise generated, thus preserving more details.

iPhone-XS-Max-Cameras

Where Apple continues to hold its ground is in a point-and-shoot mode in controlled light situations. In these cases, the iPhone XS Max camera shows very correct exposure and color reproduction, as well as an adequate level of detail and without exaggeration. It is also a very fast camera, and with a simpler interface, it would be impossible.

The rest of the physical section of the iPhone XS Max camera remains unchanged. We will continue to have two cameras, the second acting as a telephoto lens to achieve a 2x zoom and take advantage of that focal length for portrait mode.

One detail that squeaks us is that Apple maintains the exclusivity of portrait mode for the second camera, smaller in size and with less capacity to capture light than the main one, so, even though in the iPhone XR they have shown that with a single camera you could get that portrait effect, here, for now, we are trapped and not taking advantage of the higher quality that the main sensor could offer us in situations where the lack of light makes the portrait mode stumble on the iPhone XS Max.

Portrait mode with adjustable blur

Speaking of portrait mode, the iPhone XS Max receives improvements from the hand of the A12 Bionic and the new ISP with greater processing capacity and machine learning. Already in the first betas of iOS 12, you could see some improvement in this portrait mode, especially at the edges.

In our experience with the iPhone XS Max, portrait mode improves slightly, especially in the quality of background blur. It maintains a reproduction of the skin tone that seems to us the most faithful on the market, but on the other hand, we continue to miss a sharpness that does justice to the level that it should demand from a terminal that claims to be the best on the market, starting with the price.

What is new in the portrait mode of the iPhone XS Max is the adjustable selective blur after taking the photo. This option is added to the one that already existed to change the type of lighting, a function that, by the way, has been somewhat stagnant with only acceptable results in certain and rare situations.

Selective blur in portrait mode supports varying depths from a fictitious f1.4 to f16. In the first case, the center of the face would barely remain in focus, and the result is quite extreme.

If the subject has remained still and the initial focus has been successful on his face, the blur that is achieved is quite consistent and the bokeh is very attractive when the background is playing, such as at night with lights.

That portrait mode with variable blur applies to the secondary camera as well. Together with the light modes, they give us a pretty good set of options for improving or at least personalizing selfies. We’ve been very happy with both the sharpness and the accuracy of the skin tones, which are very close to reality.

The Smart HDR mode

One of the renewed sections on the iPhone XS Max is the HDR mode. Under iOS 12, it receives the surname “Smart,” with the clear objective of automatically improving photographs in complicated, high-contrast moments of the scene. Here we are talking about Apple, so there is no way to control that effect. Everything is on the side of the IPS, without the possibility of activating or deactivating on-demand in real-time.

The positive side of this decision by Apple is that the iPhone XS Max reinforces the idea of a point-and-shoot camera in which there is a very high percentage of obtaining an excellent image. In sunsets and sunrises, as well as with the sun in full swing, the iPhone XS Max camera performs excellently in many situations, having overcome problems with overexposure. The lights, in general, are already under control.

However, in very high-contrast situations, especially in nature, Apple’s emphasis on bringing back the darkest areas causes an unnatural HDR effect that has been exasperating in some situations.

The best thing is that in the camera options if we do not like the result, we deactivate the Smart HDR mode (it is activated by default), and we can also leave the “Keep normal photo” option activated. In my opinion, those options should be easy to find in the camera’s interface. For now, we can only choose to activate or not activate HDR, which comes up when we deactivate Smart HDR in the settings.

Better stabilized 4K video.

Apple has always been known for offering a high-quality video recording mode. On this iPhone XS Max, we have the expected modes, with 4K video up to 60 fps, slow-motion mode at 240 fps, and 1080p quality at the extremes.

The performance improvements were already seen in the photography mode, and low light and high contrast situations carried over to the video mode experience as well.

However, two aspects raise the bar for video with the iPhone XS Max: the cleaner and more powerful stereo sound, and, above all, the video stabilization. In the latter case, the results obtained in hand alone with the phone, without an external gadget to stabilize them, are very good.

Conclusion

The return of the larger screen The iPhone has not left anyone indifferent. With no other differences from the normal XS except for the screen’s size, the 6.5-inch OLED screen of the XS is the best you can get even if you only use it with one person. hand, as well as transportation.

Inside we have found the improvements of every S version of the iPhone: a better processor and camera. In the latter case, Apple has partially solved two of the points that had lagged behind the competition. In these elements, as with the design, screen, and even autonomy, the iPhone XS Max does not present unknowns. Nor in the internal memory of 512 GB of the version that we have been able to test.

The iPhone XS Max price in Bangladesh is a little bit higher, but if you want better performance, then you have to negotiate with its price. The buts come from the side of excellence that one expects from a smartphone with a price never below 1259 euros and that we do not see in the serial charger, the camera at specific points, or details such as FaceID or the use of a diagonal so big.
