    If your main use of the phone is going to be gaming, get the XS or XS Max.

    I've read around here that Fortnite on the XS runs at 60fps whereas it only runs at 30 on the iPhone X.

    On my phone I just tend to play Crazy Taxi or Drunk-Dial the Ex, so nothing too graphic intensive, but the XS is definitely better for graphics on certain games.

    If you already have a working phone, I would aim for a tablet to use as a primary gaming device. If you prefer the form factor of a phone, I would also go for the XS at least. The reason is the GPU in the X, basically just sucks. Yes, it is fast enough to play any game on the app store, full graphics. But its only slightly above the iPhone 7, 30%, while the X, to XS is 50%. The X is perfectly capable, but if you plan to primarily game, I would go with a XS, or iPad Pro 10.5 minimum. Best of luck.

    Hello, I own the iPhone X and I quite think to upgrade on iPhone XS. I like to play games so I am intrested if I will recognize difference between X and XS while playing game. According to tests, the XS graphics card is 50% faster, so it will make a big difference, right? Has anyone had the experience to try to test X and XS in practice?

    Hi guys, there is some difference in playing games (performance) on iPhone X and XS? Very high graphics games. Can it be determined that the XS would be much better?

    While the A11 in the X is very powerful and not far off the peak performance of the A12, the issue is that it cannot sustain the high workloads without overheating throttling CPU/GPU.

    An example of this is Fortnite which is capped at 30fps on A11 and runs full 60fps on A12 devices.

    I know. I think that Fortnite is optimized for A12, maybe A11 should it manage 60FPS too. I would like to know if there is a difference while playing games on both of devices. (Lagging,etc.) Or it doesn’t to recognize?

    Does anyone play on such tiny screen as the X?
