I currently have last years X,
Anyone with the X who bought the Max have an opinion?
How about anyone who had the plus going to max?
Its tough to decide if the extra screen size is worth carrying around.

Now that the Xmax is in store, you can go and try it out. I will try it out only when the Xr is out in the store, so I can compare both.

I have heard a few people say this and it concerns me, lol. How can you NOT notice the difference? It’s larger!
I totally get it. And ya I know it’s larger in every dimension. But oddly it doesn’t feel larger. I really can’t explain it. If I compare it side by side to the XS I can easily see the difference. But holding it and using it I just don’t “feel” that much of a difference.

So you dont feel the difference, but you can see the difference, as in with the screen, correct? Lol

It is very big but loving the size. Missed having a bigger phone. Making me think I can use my ipad less for certain stuff so may get the bigger 12.9 pro for things I may need a larger screen on.

First thought was it’s too big but having spend a few hours with it and I am quickly getting used to it. Like a lot of people have said, it’s big but feels smaller than a plus if that makes sense.
