Moto Z4 (2019) vs Apple iPhone XS/XS Max (2018)

Analysis:

We couldn't find enough data on either product to be able to come to any reliable conclusions. We highly recommend that you take a look at some other options instead.

While the Moto Z4 (2019) wasn't able to make it to the very top of any roundups from sources that perform quality hands-on testing, it still got featured in a large number of them. PhoneArena, PCmag, Techradar, The Verge, Android Authority, and Android Central have all deemed it worthy of a place on their respective shortlists.

Taking a look at the Apple iPhone XS, we found that it got praised by AVForums and bicycling.com - two sources that are known for their high-quality in-depth testing. The Apple iPhone XS was named "Best Smartphone Over 6 Inches 2018" by AVForums and "Ranked 2 out of 9" by bicycling.com in their respective Smartphone roundups; that suggests that it's a product that's worth considering.

We conducted an analysis of all of the review data that we could find on these two products. First, we focused on sources that tested and rated both of them, like Lifewire, PhoneArena, PCmag, Techradar, Digitaltrends, The Verge, and Android Authority, and learned that they all showed a preference for the Apple iPhone XS.

Then we took a look at the highest review scores that these two Smartphones received. We found that the Moto Z4 (2019) managed to earn a rating of 9 from PhoneArena, whereas the Apple iPhone XS got its highest, 10, score from reviewers at What Hi-Fi?.

Lastly, in order to better compare them to the rest of their competition, we averaged out their review scores. The Apple iPhone XS managed to get 8.8 out of 10 - considerably better than the 7.5 review average of Smartphones in general - whereas the Moto Z4 (2019) earned 7.1 points.

It should be said that doing a direct Moto Z4 (2019) vs. Apple iPhone XS comparison might not be entirely fair due to the difference in their prices - some sources don't put much weight on value for money and thus tend to give better review scores to more expensive products.
