Apple today announced the iPhone XS, the successor to the fantastic iPhone X. Given it’s an “s” update, not much has changed with the exterior except for a fancy new gold color option. The rest of the changes come on the inside, including a powerful A12 chip, but even then there are only a few noteworthy changes.
That raises the question: Is the iPhone XS that much better than the still terrific iPhone X? Take a look at the spec comparison down below to decide which phone you think is the best smartphone.
