    In response to another thread where some iPhone XS Max users claim their phones are getting horrible cellular reception, please tell us how your experience has been.

    Mine has been good for cell reception and my data speeds are faster than my 7 plus.

    Not sure, I don't actually talk on the phone that much...

    but I've been noticing in the house I'm only getting 2 bars, and my wifi was acting up on the phone today...

    My husband's note 9 has full bars

    Hasn't really been problematic yet for me so ...

    OP, why don't you post any comments in the larger thread you referenced instead of starting another?

    I haven't noticed an issues or slowdowns. It's pretty on par for me.

    My WiFi seems fine. No noticeable problems yet. LTE is a bit iffy. Not as good as on my S9+ or 7 Plus, but all of my phones are suffering for lack of strong signal in my area and it’s a fairly recent development. I’m not sure what to think, yet.

    WiFi is good. I have Airport TC set up where 5 Ghz and 2.4 Ghz bands are labelled differently. LTE is not as good as my X. It is quite apparent the Max has a flawed antenna design that can not be fixed.

    Fastest ever, much faster than my iPhone X. In fact, on the 52nd story of a high rise in Las Vegas, I had 1 bar of LTE on both my X and the new XS Max. On my iphone X, I was struggling, but once I got the XS Max it seemed to work better.

    Wifi speeds at home are definitely faster. This phone is BLAZING FAST. No Reception issues yet, but I haven't tried to take it to T-mobile fringe cities. There are some cities T-Mobile doesn't do well with - Seattle (surprisingly) is one of them. San Francisco works great on my old phone, will be interesting to try on the max. :)

    Both cell and wifi are the same as my previous iphones. No issues.
