are you happy with your new iPhone Xs, have you had any problems with your new device? I’ve had my Xs Max for 3 hours now and loving it, the screen is beautiful and the nectarine case looks great on the device

UPDATE

had the phone for nearly a week now and I am still in love with it, this phone is very expensive but I think people need to remember that this phone has one of the best cameras on a smartphone, it has more power than some laptops and it has more games than a games console. If you was to calculate how much all these things would be to buy separately and bundle it all up I don’t actually think £1,100 is a lot of money for this phone, I would go as far as saying this is the best item I have ever bought from Apple

I‘m so happy. The screen is bit yellow and I have to get used to the new display size (normal xs, coming from a 7) but damn I‘m happy.

It‘s a bit hard for my thumb to reach the notch areas without changing the „position“ of my hand. Even with big hands
Mine is a bit yellow when I look at it but it really doesn’t bother me, enjoy your new phone!

Mine was yellow too, turn off True Tone and the screen will blow you away.

Love it. Got my space gray XS today as an upgrade from my silver 8 Plus. I absolutely love it. I love how the screen is about as big yet it’s so much more manageable and lighter. I picked two Apple leather cases, a product red and a black one. Love it all! The iPhone upgrade program worked flawlessly again!

Coming from a 7+ fit works well for me like before. Only had it for like 6-7 hours and battery life seems better already. My only concern has been my carrier signal seems very weak compared to what it used to be. I’m talking about in my house too :/... anyone else notice anything like this?

I’m happy, but I can’t make up my mind about the color. I got gold, but sometimes I feel like it looks more rose gold than gold. My wife likes it and she says she doesn’t think it looks rose gold, but I can’t decide.

8+ to a Gold XS Max. I am more than happy with it. Still getting used to the gestures but I have zero regrets.
Exactly this. I haven't had a lot of time to play with it since it's working on installing stuff.. but I am happy! I had a bit of buyers remorse over the last few days while waiting that maybe I should have waited and just gotten the new iPad when it comes out (priorities and such) .. since I use my ipad WAY more than I use my phone.. but.. so far I am happy. Can't wait to play with the camera tomorrow :D

It's bitter sweet. My 7 Plus got smashed a few weeks back. There was nothing wrong with it. I wanted to get another year or two out of it. My last phone that I ever got on a subsidy. But this XS max looks amazing!

My XS Max 256 SG was delivered late this afternoon, I have been restoring my iCloud Backup to it and getting comfortable with using it, checking out settings and new features...LIKE it. I'm happy with my purchase! Upgraded from 6S Plus 64GB which I am passing along to my sister.

Max is incredible. It’s much nicer than the previous Plus phones. People will be convinced when they demo in-store.

Turn off true tone and you'll be happy if you don't like the yellow. That's what I did and it's a huge improvement.
