On a forum like this you’re going to see a skew towards the Max because there were a lot of iPhone X early adopters who had previously been Plus owners and continued to crave the larger screen.
This is why I changed from 8 Plus to the XS. It took almost no time to adjust and the smaller size is just so much easier to live with.If I were to go for one, I’d probably go for the 5.8” even being a current plus size user. Honestly my main reasons for going plus are battery life and the higher pixel density, both of which are addressed by the Xs over the 4.7” iPhones. I think I’d find a slightly more compact model quite agreeable (not that I find the pluses particularly cumbersome, but something even more svelte would be even better when it’s a go anywhere device)
I’m really very tempted by the camera on the XS - I do want to hang on and see if the removal of 3D Touch next year has anything to do with introducing under-screen Touch ID though, that would be the icing on the cake for me. Hopefully the rumour mill will give us a good indication within the next 6 months, and if it comes to nothing I can decide thenThis is why I changed from 8 Plus to the XS.

This. I have been a plus owner since the 6 plus. I’ve had all the plus iteration!, including the 8 plus. When Apple announced the X I wished they’d gone with the plus last hear but no. But still ended up getting the X. Now that Apple announced the XS Max, I immediately went for the bigger side and absolutely love it.On a forum like this you’re going to see a skew towards the Max because there were a lot of iPhone X early adopters who had previously been Plus owners and continued to crave the larger screen.
Plenty of people have gone for the X and like it. Stop paying attention to what others are doing and decide which is the right one for you personally.
Spec for spec they are the same phone. The only difference is size. It's only a mater of preference. The Xs seems to have slightly better performance under some tests... so there is that. Just buy what makes you happy and don't worry what others think. This isn't High School.
