Gaming is one of those features expected to be available by default in a smartphone, and mobile gaming has come a long way from the Nokia 3310’s Snake game to the iPhone’s Candy crush. Besides home consoles, the modern smartphones have become increasingly viable gaming devices.

The instant run-away gaming success stories of PUBG Mobile and Fortnite can be attributed to their mobile platforms, portability and power inside these phones. With blazing speed processors, powerful graphic performances, and compact software/hardware integration, Apple’s iPhone for gaming is an excellent choice that provides an incredibly top experience at various levels.

Two of the iPhone’s latest variants – iPhone XR and iPhone XS are the apple gaming phones that offer specs that are required for advanced level gaming.



Iphone XR Vs Iphone XS: Which is the best Iphone for gaming?


Here are some of their key specifications of iPhone XR and iPhone XS that support advanced gaming performance:


  1. Processor and RAM:

  • The 6.1- inch iPhone XR and the 5.8-inch iPhone XS are embedded with the same processor – the super-powerful A12 Bionic chip that incorporates a hexa core processor making them ideal for gaming.
  • A12 Bionic also ensures brilliant augmented reality (AR) with its four-core graphic Apple GPU and Neural engine feature.
  • However, the iPhone XS for gaming with 4 GB RAM brings out a slightly quicker performance in terms of rendering files than iPhone XR for gaming with a 3 GB RAM, but this difference is hardly noticeable by non-technical users.
  • It’s extremely difficult to beat them in terms of raw power with a vast choice of games to choose from on iOS. They also work seamlessly with any other devices of Apple Kit that happen to be available around at home.
  1. Battery:

  • The iPhone XR is packed with a battery capacity of 2942 mAh that can last for up to 16 hours of video playback and the iPhone XS comes with a 2658 mAh battery capacity that can last upto 14 hrs.
  • In comparison of their battery capacities, the iPhone XR for gaming has the capacity to last for a little longer duration than the iPhone XS for gaming.
  1. Screen Display:

  • The 6.1-inch iPhone XR features a slightly bigger display than the 5.8 inch iPhone XS. On the other hand, the iPhone XS features a Super Retina OLED display that looks visibly superior over the iPhone XR’ liquid retina (LCD) display panel.
  • An OLED display makes the colours look brighter and the contrast sharper. The smart HDR (high-dynamic range) gaming content also looks top notch due to the OLED’s ability to display perfect blacks.
  • However, the LCD display isn’t bad either when both the phones are placed next to each other to gauge the quality of the iPhone for gaming.
  • Although the above differences between iPhone XR and iPhone XS are not very stark, both the iPhone variants have their own pros and cons that need evaluation while choosing a better iPhone for gaming.


The Best Iphone for Gaming: IPhone XR VS IPhone XS -Verdict

  • So, between iPhone XR and iPhone XS, iPhone XR for gaming is a better option than iPhone XS for gaming with its bigger screen size and battery capacity, for a cheaper bet.
  • But, if you are not worried about the costs, and aren’t the one to compromise on the display quality and that little extra RAM speed during gaming, then iPhone XS is the best gaming phone for you.
