I was finding the weight of the Max was bugging me (not the size so much).

T-Mobile will take it back within 21 days and a nearby-ish (10 miles) Apple Store had an Xs 512GB Gold in stock so I bought it and will drop the Max off at UPS in the morning.

The camera and extra space was the real reason I wanted to replace my iPhone 7 and the Xs gives me that.

I may regret it in another week but I am happy today :)

I also went from a x to a Xs max. Thought I’d hate it. But I love it. Battery life alone makes it a go to over the x.

I had no interest in the X when it came out (stayed with my 7) but as I said, the camera and extra storage sold me on the Xs.

It really was the weight not the size -- I have no problem with the size my Pixel 2 XL (my backup phone) but the Xs Max just felt so heavy in my hand, even with just the simple Apple silicon case...

Yeah after having the iPhone 6 Plus, 7 plus, and the 8 plus, I went to the iPhone X, now I have the Xs! I prefer the Xs 5.8” more. The Max is just too big. The Xs is perfect.
