In the previous weeks, Anandtech and researchers at Taiwan’s National Tsing-Hua University, both reviews sites acclaim to discover Apple has, quite surprisingly. Been given little weight to the two seriously big improvements inside the Apple’s iPhone XS and XS Max.
The more subtle, moreover, of the two discoveries comes from the Tsing-Hua University. I know, for this moment, you have now the eagerness to know the new discoveries. Like so, let’s now dive in and explore.
Two Awesome Secret Features of Apple’s iPhone XS and XS Max
The iPhone XS Max’s OLED displays are healthier in the eyes
In testing the iPhone XS Max, it is learned that Apple’s latest OLED displays are scientifically healthier for the eyes of every user. In comparison to Apple’s previous LCD-based models that is to offer.
For this matter, the tests that have been revealed to iPhone XS Max delivers a 20 percent higher Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE) unlike the iPhone 7. Maximum Permissible Exposure is the time before a retina will become inflamed due to screen exposure. Thus, the duration was just three hundred forty-six seconds – a sobering reminder that we should not stare at the device screen for too long. And it easily beats the iPhone 7, with the duration of two hundred eighty-eight seconds.
Additionally, the iPhone XS Max was also founded to have a lower Melatonin Suppression Sensitivity (MSS) score of 20.1 percent versus 24.6 percent for the iPhone 7. For this reason, Melatonin Suppression Sensitivity is actually a measure of blue light. Exposure to which disrupts the circadian rhythm and that can actively damage the cells that are in your eyes.
iPhone XS and XS Max has more than 40% faster performance
The second discovery for Apple’s iPhone XS is even more surprising.
Surprisingly, Anandtech finds out that the A12 Bionic chipset of Apple’s iPhone XS and XS Max has been 15% faster performance cores. Unlike the A11 Bionic chipset that is in the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X to be false. Thus, actually, it is as much as 40% faster and can beat some of the most powerful desktop processors.
In such a way, Anandtech discovers that the A12 has major structural changes to the CPU core. And memory compression in the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). While the system cache has the biggest change since it its introduction on the A7.
Moreover, Anandtech says in a statement, Apple’s marketing department was really underselling the improvements in the chipset. With this in mind, however, the consequences for Android system SoC (system on chip) are severe. Anandtech added that Apple’s system on chips has better energy efficiency than all the other previous Android system on chips. In which, having a nearly 2x performance is really an advantage.
For this reason, it would not be a surprise if it’s to normalize for energy used, Apple would definitely have a 3x faster performance efficiency lead.
Final Thought – On the other hand, despite its awesome secret features, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have revealed to have a fairly disappointing battery life.
