    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.

    No. It’s not too big. Honestly I don’t notice much difference from the X. But I’ve always used phones two handed.

    I went with the max coming from a 6s plus. The chassis size is near identical between the two. The max has more usable screen space at the top and bottom and maybe on the sides. But it’s not all that different from carrying around a plus sized iPhone

    I have heard a few people say this and it concerns me, lol. How can you NOT notice the difference? It’s larger!

    It feels great to me! I can use the Max one-handed. I do have monster hands though, soooo, take this with a grain of salt :p

    I don’t notice the notch as much as I did on my cousins X. The screen makes it appear smaller imo

    I'm not finding it too big, but it definitely is heavier.

    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.

    Not too big at all. I had an 8+ before I bought my X and the MAX screen is just what I expected and wanted!

    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.

    Yes it's way too big, but I LOVE it!! Will miss the one handed use of my X, but my eyes definitely thank me.

    In the end my eyes are also the winner. Love the screen and keyboard.

    Not too big at all - it’s PERFECT!!

    Anyone hanging on to the X will join the party next year. This is just the right size.

    That too, I was tired of my fat fingers hitting the wrong keyboard keys on my X.
