One of the main reasons I chose the 8 Plus over the X was the difference in watching videos. The letter-boxing in the already narrow X made them appear even smaller. Sure you could zoom, but then you were cropping out content. It looks like on the Max, videos will be very similar, nearly identical, to the Plus experience. But if you zoom, as you can see, you will still lose content. Just thought I would share for anyone wondering. Looks promising.
