iPhones have been known to take decent shots with their built-in cameras despite the fact that Apple has been criticized for lagging in technology. While the iPhone XS Series have been reinforced with a celebrated A12 bionic chip, there are some who feel that they can still get better shots with other latest mobile phone brands.

As mentioned in a previous post, the iPhone XS is deemed still lagging behind when compared to devices like the Google Pixel 2. This is despite the small improvements made to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max built-in cameras, carrying off from what the iPhone X had to offer last year.

Aside from the enhancements the A12 bionic chip had, the iPhone XS came with improved wide-angle image sensors, 32-percent larger than its predecessor. Aside from that, the latest cameras are twice as fast for better image fidelity, greater color accuracy, and improved performance in low light conditions, Mac Rumors said.

A Smart HDR feature maximized the things that the A12 bionic chip can do, offering a better dynamic range. People who are curious and eager to see how the photos differ can find a lot on Instagram and Twitter. Apple shared several of these best “Shot on iPhone” photos which can be found using the hashtag “#ShotonIphone”.

Apparently, early bird iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max owners have started to try out the device’s built-in camera, taking images using Portrait Mode, Smart HDR, more advanced bokeh, Depth Control, and so on.

It would be best to note that one issue mobile phone users need to deal with is the lighting conditions. In low-lit environments, the amount of pixels needed to offset the photo quality is a concern. But thanks to the wider pixel size on the iPhone XS camera, larger pixels generally mean they can collect more light, CNet said.

Of course, this does not mean that good lighting conditions don’t have their share problems. Particularly when snapping shots in the outdoors. The job of leveling all that is in the Smart HDR function which can help prevent blown-out highlights that can also account for colors more subdued when compared to the iPhone X.

With the captures photos of the iPhone XS series out in the open, most are left to wonder if the device/s are worth investing in. There are some who believe that the built-in cameras hardly have enough to rave about.

Hence, the decision to get the iPhone XS or the XS Max lies heavily on the consumer. It may be about bragging rights to flash the latest Apple handset for some. But for those who are looking for big changes, it may be best to hold on and reflect before shelling out another huge investment on these devices.
