The iPhone 8 represents good value when compared with Apple’s new iPhone Xs

The 5.8-inch iPhone XS, visually similar to last year's iPhone X, comes in three storage options - 64GB, 256GB and a new 512GB. Fortunately, China's technology regulator is more than happy to do away with the secrecy, revealing that the iPhone Xs actually has a smaller battery than the iPhone X, although it does get a bump in RAM.

In addition, we also know the iPhone XS and XS Max come with 4GB of RAM, while the XR has 3GB.

If you recall, the iPhone X from a year ago had a 2,716mAh battery which is slightly bigger than what the XS packs.

Bezels have been drastically reduced on the iPhone Xr and the American tech giant's signature Face ID system is present at the top, serving as the primary method of unlocking the device. "You can see from the iPhone XS benchmarks that it compares favorably to fast laptops and easily exceeds iPhone X performance".

iPhone XR to be better than iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max? The 128GB version costs £899 while the 512GB phone will set you back £1,099.

If you want to find out more about these plans, head on over to Telstra, Optus or Vodafone for the full details.

Prices for the cheaper iPhone XR, expected in South Africa on October 26, have not yet been released. Are you planning to use it without a protective case? So then, what better time to pit the two behemoths of the smartphone world against each other?
