I've seen some complaints that text isn't that much better on the Max in terms of size/readability. I'm not sure if this is well known, but previous to the X the iphones had an accessibility setting that would slightly zoom everything. It was great for enlarging text and other UI elements. I missed this on my X. On the Xs Max (I don't believe they put it back in for the regular Xs) it has made a return. You can find it in accessibility. Makes a HUGE difference and really utilizes the larger screen of the Max effectively, especially for those of us with failing eyes that need a little extra boost in readability.
