    Originally I decided not to upgrade from my X but the more I started watching some of the early reviews the more I wanted the XS and particularly for the camera features. Stopped in to my local T-Mobile store this morning at 8am and grabbed a gold 64GB XS (not Max)...taking some sample shots around the house this morning I can tell you that the improvements in highlights and shadows are tremendous! Apple really did a fantastic job with their dynamic HDR, wow. I also really love the new aperture slider. The speed improvements are slight but noticeable as well.

    My first random shot. I think it looks great coming from an iPhone 7 Plus

    I just took a selfie and had to delete it. I refuse to believe my skin is actually this bad LOL so many details. It’s like seeing the world for the first time in HD

    I'm sorry you lost your dogs. :( Goldens really are the sweetest dogs I think...we love ours to pieces. Hopefully you will have one in your life again some day.

    Thanks for the photos. I had decided to keep my X another year. Then I started hearing about, and seeing, the camera improvements. Now I'm very, very temped.

    I also wasn't going to upgrade from my X but after reading this blog https://daringfireball.net/2018/09/the_iphones_xs I couldn't resist anymore.

    Apple didn't make a big deal out of the camera but there's major improvements over the X and here I am with the XS lol

    Even without any clever processing tricks you can tell there's a larger sensor in there right off the bat.

    Quite exciting really. Wonder how big camera sensors will end up having. APS-C level some day? Too optimistic?

    I know Panasonic or someone made a massive sensor camera a while ago but it was a gimmick. Huge and impractical.

    What if the back of the phone was a sensor with a protective layer/coating. And it used some virtual shutter technology to let light in and out.. that would allow phones to have larger sensors than DSLR's!

    Christ, I bet they've already thought of that and have concepts drawn up!

    Nice pics! Enjoy your Max, agree, camera is definitely way improved from comparisons I've been digging up on Youtube today.

    Just snagged my Max at lunch from the Apple store. Could not agree more! I was shocked at the difference between my X and Max. The display on the Max is much more vibrant and bright. I wonder how many nits the display is?

    This one of the dog is fantastic!

    Front-facing camera is definitely improved over the X and way improved over previous models. Only shot I have so far is a portrait selfie, but I'm digging it. And adjustable f stop? Brilliant!

    It looks fine. But your hair is blurred too and that is not so great. But an upgrade of course it is.

    And the dog photo looks fake to me, i mean you could tell it's a software working there. Maybe i am too strict with photos.
    But like i say before, sure it is an upgrade from X. Bigger sensor is the best way to perform better :)

    Oh, for sure. There's also some blur on the shoulder by the chair because the shirt looks like the same color. I played with the F stop slider and probably went too far. What I meant by "digging it" is that I feel pretty happy with what I got on my first try (while also not denying that it's definitely a first try, in all its sloppy glory).
