    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.

    I agree. I upgraded from the X, which I really didn’t need to, but the XS Max is outstanding. It’s by far the most display area I’ve ever had in my pocket. The display is crisp, bright, and colorful. The speed of this thing is just mind-blowing. It just rips through everything with buttery smoothness. And the camera is simply outstanding.

    The Max is one hell of a good phone. I’m very much enjoying it and I upgraded from an X. That extra screen real estate was well worth it.

    I purchased one as well, and I really like it too! The pictures are much better then my previous 6s plus! The screen size is much nicer too!

    The XS Max is what I was waiting for last year when the 5.8 X launched. I knew Apple would eventually have a larger offering, and 6.5 Max is executed perfectly with the weight, and the OLED display *alone* is worth the purchase.

    Had a 6S+ and then went to the regular 7 before the X. Had no intention of upgrading this year but circumstances changed and I wanted to try the plus/max size again and I love it. Having this much screen on this premium of a device is fantastic.

    Unfortunately I think you are right! But man that screen! It's just amazing to use a device with a big screen like this. LOL

    Oh I know. I always wanted Apple to make the screen bigger. Finally they’ve gotten rid of the forehead and chin.

    With all the whining that goes on around here, you'd think it's the crappiest product ever made. Agree completely though. Fantastic device.

    Disaster, I purchased it and could not believe how uncomfortable it is. Huge phones not for me. Heavy, big, bulky! Sold yesterday and purchased the xs. Happy now! What surprised me is that Max offers nothing extra...same everything as xs, just heavier, bulkier, unfomfortable

    All about personal preference! But I'd say that big screen is a joy to look at compared to that 5.8 screen on the XS. But that too is a preference. I think once some of these developers get are able to update their apps we will see better use of the bigger screen. I don't find it heavy, bulky or uncomfortable by any stretch of the imagination, but the good news is we have a choice.

    Don’t bother with him. His grandma had to take him to the hospital cause the Max was too heavy for his fragile fingers.

    I agree that it is a fantastic phone, but not enough of an improvement in my opinion to justify an upgrade from the X.
