Serious. Not trying to troll. I "upgraded" from a 7 to an XS and do not like it. While I still do not like the notch, it isn't the main thing I do not like. Here are my biggest frustrations: 1) Face ID: It works great when your walking around but laying down or in bed, it's garbage. I've had to enter my passcode more in the last 4 days than in the 5 years I've had Touch ID, serious. Touch ID should have been built into the power button like other phones have done. 2) Use of Screen Space: The XS has a taller screen than the 7 and I figured that'd translate into lots of extra screen space for content. Instead, there is just a ton of padding on the top & bottom. Compare iMessage side by side, almost no extra content. The Podcast App Currently Playing screen is stretched way out, etc. 3) The Notch: It does actually get in the way. Apple directs developers to pretend it doesn't exist, problem is, it does. Look at photos in portrait mode with Facebook Marketplace, the notch cuts right into photos. Gross. Apple violates it's own rules with Safari and pads out the screen in landscape to avoid the notch. 4) AMOLED: A complaint I've had for awhile is the non-uniform subpixels and subpixel sharing of AMOLED leads to a "grainy/fuzzy" image that persists regardless of resolution. (One LCD pixel is a square made up of an equal Red, Green and Blue subpixel of the same size. This is not true with AMOLED and is the fundamental basis of this issue). I genuinely prefer lower resolution LCD with uniform subpixels to much higher resolution AMOLED. XR > XS, XS Max. RGB AMOLED exists but is extremely rare and I don't think I've seen it since the original Note. The best thing about AMOLED is the black level, but that's it. Heck, the fantastic black level makes all that banding and compression on YouTube highly visible, and it is ugly. I do like the home and app switching gestures, very natural. I also think the phone a bit quicker in day to day activity than the 7 but not immensely so. All of these issues are completely separate from price, even without price considered at all, there are a lot of compromises the X/XS makes, at it's price-point, it seems a bit silly. I was going to simply go back to the 7, but instead got my hands on an 8. It will be here soon. The only thing the 7 has on the 8 is durability. The glass backs on these new phones make me nervous. Apple wanting $550+ to fix the back on the XS is absurd but didn't quite make my list.
