    I have an XS Max 256 and I realize after having it for 12 days, I don't really do much on it. It pretty much sits on a table as I am off work until the 5th. I realize my only need for a phone is strictly to receive calls from work, text messaging and WAZE - GPS and taking photos. I'm not active in any social media, though I have accounts.

    I'm coming from a 5S, so an upgrade is essential, but I wonder what you guys use your phones for to be on it so much that you're enjoying your new phones. I'm also considering, based on my needs, to go XS, and exchange this phone tomorrow.

    I record a lot of videos for a well known girlfriend revenge website. The difficulty is that even newer cameras don’t really cut through condensation on the outside of a window, so it was a real waste of money.

    I use it to AirDrop nude pics to nearby unsuspecting women.

    Seriously though, here’s a list of things I enjoy doing on the Max. Everything is so much more enjoyable viewing on the Max compared to the X.

    1. YouTube videos
    2. Surf internet
    3. Netflix
    4. HBO GO app
    5. Pictures, and video taking of family
    6. Sports Alerts App (has a nice complication for Apple Watch)
    7. Apple Music
    8. Fantastical
    9. Games (PUBG, Into the Dead 2, Asphalt 9, Oddmar, Life is Strange)
    10. Reading news (Flipboard)
    11. Apple Maps
    12. Fios Tv app to watch recorded shows or live tv

    List is endless! :D

    Give your number out to every marketing company around, then just sit on your phone and enjoy the show. The newer vibration motors make it worth the upgrade.

    Calls, texts, emails, light web browsing when out.

    All I need it for and I enjoy the fact that that is possible to do when I need to do it, wherever (almost) I need to do it.

    That's one reason i sold my XS Max and got a XR and pocketed $800Aud, was overkill for my needs.

    Calls
    texts
    email
    maps in car
    photos
    radio
    apple music
    insta
    weather

    About it, 11" pro for everything else.

    Mostly web browsing, pokerstars game, texting, podcasts.

    I have a major concern though and that's I want a good organization/ food shopping list app.

    I want to check out fantasical2 for IOS, I bought part 1 then part 2 came out and they need money again.

    Also, I don't have a Iphone so I wanna see what the apps are like that can literally make my life easier shopping and keeping appointments...

    One of my bigger peeves right now...

    But I have android to side load the over 18 mature games lol....

    Everything I do could actually be done a cheap phone but yet I keep buying an iPhone and Samsung phone every year.

    Just the usual stuff, apps, email, calls. I don't really take pictures or text much.

    It conveniently gives me a computer, a camera, a gps device, newspapers/magazines, videos, games, and I can even make phone calls too. All in one device that I can carry in my pocket. Imagine that!

    3) Taking pictures
    4) Games
    5) Banking
    6) mobile food and drink ordering
    Probably some other stuff I forgot about

    I like it. I’ve used it for a long time (an older version). I like it because it is one price and then you have access to their desktop app too and it all syncs up. There is no yearly fees like the other ones (like One Password)

    Commenting on here, seemingly in a negative way, but some positive, about Apple..
    And all other internety things. I would say You Tube as I watch loads of that but the app is just so damn buggy......
    My computer is a 2010 MacBook Pro that’s a bit on its last legs, so my iPhone is currently all I personally use.
    And Spotify, banking.

    Oh and I use the awesome new camera on my XR.
