New Year comes, spring comes, many people need to change new phones, especially the iPhone. It would be great if you could own the best Apple model right now is iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, but if your financial is tight, then choose the cheaper models. , which includes used iPhones, is completely understandable.
Currently, iPhone 11 and iPhone Xs Max are two models that are very much an eye on. The iPhone Xs Max was Apple’s most high-end model last year, while the iPhone 11 was Apple’s “entry-level” iPhone model this year.
In the used iPhone market in Vietnam, these two models are very attractive when both are in the price range of 15-17 million. Therefore, many users are asking the question: “Should I buy an iPhone 11 or iPhone Xs Max?”
iPhone 11 and iPhone Xs Max
In this article, we will list a few differences between these two devices and give readers the most detailed view.
Design: iPhone Xs Max “more luxurious”, iPhone 11 “personality” more
Both the iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 11 have glass backs, but the iPhone Xs Max looks “more luxurious” thanks to the steel edges, while the iPhone 11 is just aluminum. In particular, the golden gold version of the iPhone Xs Max is very well received by Vietnamese.

… however the steel trim of the iPhone Xs Max makes this device “luxurious” and more advanced.
In return, the iPhone 11 brings ego to owners, especially young people thanks to the colorful colors such as green, red, yellow, purple … Contrast completely with the “luxurious” of Xs Max, the beauty of iPhone 11 comes from personality. However, not everyone will like this “flashy” of iPhone 11.
The beauty of the iPhone 11 comes from its individuality and youthfulness, but not everyone likes it.
Screen: iPhone XS Max overwhelms
iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 11 both have “rabbit ears” screens, but use completely different technology. The OLED screen on iPhone Xs Max overwhelms the LCD screen on iPhone 11 in terms of color, contrast, brightness … Not only that, the screen of iPhone Xs Max is even bigger (6.5 inches compared to 6.1 inches of iPhone 11), is thinner and has 3D Touch support.
The iPhone Xs Max screen is completely superior to the iPhone 11 in both size and quality.
If you value screen quality, the iPhone XS Max is an easy choice. It is safe to say that the iPhone 11’s screen is not too bad, but this is probably the biggest weakness of this device.
Camera: iPhone Xs Max benefits removing fonts, iPhone 11 benefits wide-angle & dark shots
Again, the iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 11 have dual camera systems, but their properties are completely different.
iPhone Xs Max includes 1 normal camera and 1 telephoto camera (zoom). Meanwhile, iPhone 11 includes 1 normal camera and 1 super wide-angle camera (ultrawide).
The iPhone 11 and iPhone Xs Max both have dual cameras, but their properties are completely different.
Which camera system is more reasonable? It depends on your needs.
– If you are someone who likes to take portrait photos, especially remove fonts; iPhone Xs Max will be a better choice because the zoom lens will help create more “true” portrait photos. The iPhone 11 can also take pictures to erase the background with a normal camera, but the photos are somewhat “fake” because this lens is inherently not suitable for taking photos.

– If you are interested in landscape photography: iPhone 11 will make you satisfied. The iPhone 11’s ultra wide-angle camera is great for landscape and life photography.

The iPhone 11’s camera also has another big advantage over the iPhone XS Max is the Night Mode night mode, which greatly improves the ability to take photos in low light conditions.
Finally, the iPhone 11 has a better selfie camera than the iPhone Xs Max with a larger 12MP resolution, a wider angle lens, and supports “slofie” super slow selfie videos.

Configuration & battery life: iPhone 11 is a bit better, but not much different from iPhone Xs Max
As the new iPhone, the iPhone 11 has the advantage of processing capabilities with the A13 Bionic chip, while the iPhone Xs Max is the A12 Bionic. However, at the present time, the difference in performance between the two models is indistinguishable. In fact, considering the net performance, A13 Bionic is only 10% faster than A12 Bionic.
Another factor that iPhone 11 and iPhone Xs Max do not have significant difference is the battery life. In terms of specifications, iPhone 11 and iPhone Xs Max have battery capacities of 3110mAh and 3174mAh, respectively. In terms of practical experience, iPhone 11 offers better battery life than iPhone Xs Max, but the difference is not much. Most users will still need to charge these devices daily.
Therefore, users should not be too focused on battery performance issues when confused between iPhone 11 and iPhone XS Max, but instead should focus on other more obvious things like the screen or the camera.
iPhone 11 is less “built”
One thing to consider when choosing to buy iPhone 11 and iPhone Xs Max, especially for used machines, is the quality of the device. Currently, iPhone Xs Max has more than 1 year of age, on the market appeared “built” machines (repaired, replaced components). In addition, users will have to face the machine scratch or battery, because these are inevitable wear and tear components.
Meanwhile, the new iPhone 11 was released only a few months ago and the percentage of devices built in the market was almost none. The “used” iPhone 11 devices on the market today have almost the same appearance as the new, battery-less device. Therefore, this is a safer choice if you do not have much experience in checking old machines.
Naturally, if you intend to buy a new, full-seal machine at a well-known store, this will be an issue you don’t need to care about.
