Description

Apple iPhone XS Max

iPhone XS Max has a 6.5-inch all-screen Super Retina display. The back is glass, and there’s a stainless steel band around the frame. The side button is on the right side of the device. There are 12MP wide-angle and telephoto cameras on the back. There’s a Quad-LED True Tone flash on the back and a SIM tray on the right side that holds a “fourth form factor” (4FF) nano-SIM card. The IMEI is etched on the SIM tray.

Samsung Galaxy Note9

The largest battery in a Note, ever. When you have a long-lasting battery, you really can go all day and all night. The Note9 has twice as much storage as the Note8, which means more music, more videos, more pictures, and less worry when it comes to space on your phone The Note 9 gives you a quick network connection for incredibly fast streaming and downloading, so you can do more, uninterrupted. Still amazing on screen, but now the S-Pen has more power off screen. Remotely control different applications and use the S pen to capture shots from far away, scroll, and play music. At 6.4″, the Note9 has the largest screen of any Galaxy phone. Perfect for gaming and streaming, our Super AMOLED display is bigger than ever before.
