Compare up to 4 providers

Thursday 13 September 2018 saw Apple unveil its latest batch of iPhones to the world, officially confirming the imminent arrival of the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. As the names suggest, each phone builds upon the framework Apple laid down in 2017 with the iPhone X, albeit with higher-resolution screens, faster processors and sharper cameras.

While all that sounds great, Apple's iPhones don't exist in a vacuum. Competing phone manufacturers like Samsung, Huawei, LG, Oppo and Sony have their own Android-powered flagships that boast just as many impressive features. Assuming you're not beholden to the iOS operating system, it's a good move to compare Apple's latest iPhones to the best of the Android crop in order to suss out whether their steep price tags are actually worth it.

Comparing so many feature-packed handsets one-by-one can be tricky, but there's an easier option. Using the table above, you can select up to four phones and see how they stack up side-by-side. Want to see how the cheaper iPhone XR compares against the Samsung Galaxy S9 or the Sony Xperia XZ2? Just select the "compare" checkbox for each handset then click compare to view a breakdown of each phone's specs.
