I ordered an Xs but now wish I had ordered a Max. I am doing pick up at the Apple store. Anyone want to venture a guess of if you think they will have one available if I arrive at the store at 7:30 am? I can’t leave any earlier as my kids don’t get picked up for school at 7:10 that morning.

Here’s a quick pic of the size difference. It’s significant.

Wow there certainly is a huge difference... All worth it for the screen Realestate and Battery Life. :) I have a friend that has an iPhone SE and we went to lunch today and he set his SE on top of my iPhone 6 Plus and he was like WOW how do you carry that thing around? I was like how can you type on that tiny toy like keyboard. LOL

Thank you for that! That is significant! I went with the Xs bc My x is so heavy compared to my 8. And I like new and different things. But maybe once I hold the Max I will be glad I am getting an Xs. I can’t imagine I would be able to use the Max with one hand.

There is no doubt the plus size phones take some getting use too. However, I find it hard using a smaller phone now, but certainly it is easier and somewhat more comfortable. You maybe satisfied with your choice after all. :)

I agree. Never owned a plus. Ur after having the x last year, I decided to up the ante and try out the max. Hopefully it’s love at first 14 days cuz if not it’s going back for a XS.

I don’t have small hands by any means. Maybe these will help you. I tried to get both in the same spot. It is definitely going to be a two-handed phone.
