    After a lot of considerations I am convinced that the Xs Max is all for me and I am really, really happy with my choice! In the end the Max gives me more satisfaction and in my opinion it is the best iPhone so far! The screen is amazing and I enjoy it again and again.
    How is your experience and are you still happy with it?

    Coming from 8 Plus xS Max is a good upgrade.

    im loving it too...
    went from 7plus to X to 8 plus then back to X about 5 months ago...X is just too small in size for me.
    Max somehow feels smaller than my 8plus.
    Max is perfect along with upgrading to AW4 from an AW0
    very happy with both upgrades this year.

    I'd be lying if I said there weren't times I wished it was a little smaller, but in the majority of use cases I really like the size and am happy with the bigger screen.

    For me the pros outweigh the cons. Yes it’s big and can be cumbersome to handle as I have small hands as well as to carry in a trouser pocket. But I love the bigger display virtually edge to edge display as well as things like the better Face ID recognition and faster performance. I also appreciate the better camera even though I don’t really delve deeply in the art of photo taking with it. Overall I’m really happy with with and pretty much what I wanted from Apple.

    I usually almost "Always" have issues with what I buy. This is one product that has kept me at peace. I like it a lot and have no regrets about the color or the phone. Size is perfect. I used to use the iphone 6s plus. I guess I'm getting old and like bigger screens.

    I have small hands, but I am really enjoying my Xs max. I had an X but wanted the new camera feature. The camera is awesome on it.

    The Xs Max is definitely too big for me, but the screen is gorgeous.

    If Apple can get the signal issues worked out, I’ll definitely have another. It really is a great design.

    I’m glad I went with the Max from my 7 Plus. I was seriously considering a 8 Plus.
    Fantastic device really enjoying it.

    At first it took me some time to get used to the bigger screen, but now it's growing on me. i'm obsessed... also I can't get over how much louder the speaker are. I was watching a Netflix video while cooking and only had the volume 2/3 of the way up and it was simply perfect.

    I love mine. It too somehow feels smaller than than the 8 plus. I laugh at the trouser pocket comments often. I just wear Craghopper shirts with a large map pocket. It sits nicely there and never have the need to pop it in a trouser pocket.

    So you have a max and have apps that do not use the full screen ? Major apps according to iapel

    Seems all of mine take advantage of it
    Major apps too.

    Apparently since he did not answer he does not have one but your signature states you do.

    No I mean other apps, the screen is not yet optimally used by apps
