I am surprised to see so few posts about the XS Max. Damn, but this is one nice piece of kit. First thing I've noticed was the strong feel of the phone. It feels substantial, well built and strong. It's a little heavy, but the great battery life makes up for that. It's a blazing fast phone that hasn't blinked at anything I throw at it. It takes beautiful photos, some of them as nice as anything I have taken with my Nikon. I upgraded from the iPhone SE and I am totally thrilled. I haven't found a single flaw. Well worth every penny I spent.
