    No iPhone now or in the future is worth $1000. Apple charges what it wants and we have to pay to play. But the phone is definitely a ripoff. I own one. (not a $1000 model) so I guess that makes me a sucker too.

    while I wish it did have more features like

    always on display
    spilt screen multitasking
    on screen widgets

    What I value most is
    good performanc
    easy to use
    everything syncs well
    great camera
    software and customer support

    the xs max is far from perfect but running IOS I'm very happy with what it provides.

    Of course we always want it to have everything we want but realistically that's not possible.

    Sounds like you need to get a Samsung.

    Looked at a Samsung Note 9 and a Huawei Mate 20 Pro - liked the Pro best. Warranty issues in US stopped me from buying it. I'll see what the 10 looks like.

    It’s simply not premium. When other manufacturers used PWM flickering in the past (in many cases to save cost), Apple avoided it because it could cause headaches, eye strain, etc. depending on its implementation. It can still be problematic even for users who don’t notice it even if it only manifests in eye strain, and the frequency on the X/XS is low enough at 60Hz-240Hz that it can cause more serious issues for sensitive users.
