Care to elaborate ?
Not grilling just genuinely curious
It's a nice phone no doubt. Screen is nice, but I don't think it's some display marvel that has to be had. Speakers are a little louder, but again these aren't huge deals to me. Wireless charging is convenient I guess, but mainly only when i'm going to bed or working at my desk. Honestly just plugging in a cable isn't that difficult is it? lol plus it's slower than wired charging still.
Camera is nice, but I'm not an expert photographer and my 7 plus is still good. Touch ID is still really convenient, can set different fingers, can get into the phone without always having to look at it, etc. Face ID is nice, it's a little faster than the X, but horizontal support/more faces I think would really help (as well as it would possibly bring a true landscape mode for the X line). Like others have stated, as of now the Xs Max doesn't really utilize the space to show more content than say my 7 plus.
There's reports of cellular issues/wifi issues with these Xs phones, possibly due to antenna issues. These have 4x4 capabilities so it'd be kind of a slap in the face if I were to get a lesser quality signal than even my 7 plus. I mainly bought it for the dual sim capability but obv that's not ready yet. So I may just return it and wait, possibly for even the next iphone. By then the e-sim features should be established in the US and maybe if there are issues w/the antennas it'd be ironed out.
There really wasn't anything that made me say wow, but honestly I don't get that emotional about phones lol. There's absolutely nothing wrong with my 7 plus, so that probably plays into my thinking.
Nah. My 8 Plus is paid for. I used the Max and loved a lot about it. But I didn’t love it $1,350 to $1,550 more than my 8 Plus. I have no complaints about the Max at all. Apple did awesome on it. But for me personally, for the first time in 10 years, I’ll hold onto a phone for an additional year. My desire to have the best has finally been out-priced.
