    Just picked up at my carrier store. Yeah the manager is a good friend of mine. Don’t notice such a huge difference in weight between my current X vs Max. Don’t seem bigger either. Gold is beautiful. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Congrats OP!! Have you ever owned a 6, 7 or 8+ phones? Does the Xs Max feel bigger or about the same?

    EDIT: Thank you for the pictures! Glad no one would have to say "pics or it didn't happen" lol

    Doesn’t seem bigger? But physically it is.

    The Max is the same size as the plus sized phones.

    compared to plus models it's actually just a hair smaller in width and height. Just a smidge thicker.

    I’ve upgraded to every iPhone since iPhone 4. The plus size I could never do. Currently on X. Let me tell you the difference between a regular iPhone vs plus was more noticeable in size versus the X/XS to Max. X weight feels about the same to Max but I know Max is heavier. I believe because of overall Max size I can finally stay with a big screen iPhone.

    Played with an XS too in store. Didn’t feel much difference VS my X. Just that the XS was gold and my X silver LoL.

    Great looking phone. If Gold was my thing I would've chosen that color (stayed with Silver for the XS Max).

    I’m trying to decide between gold and space grey. How is the gold compared to the 8+? If it looks the same, it’s more beige than gold.

    For a day, less than 24 hours in the US. Australians will even be receiving theirs in a couple of hours.
