If you watched this year's iPhone launch event, you could've been forgiven for thinking that the iPhone XS is the most underwhelming 'S' upgrade in the iPhone's history. Apple spent surprisingly little time talking about the new features of the flagship iPhone models — a lot more information has come out since, which makes them seem like bigger upgrades than one had initially thought.

    Product is excellent, the apple feel and touch is nice and improved. Battery is too good. Comes for almost 2 days on a full charge. However feel that the price is too high compared to functionality and features of competetor mobile phones that are available at much lower prices

  • Why you want upgrade to iPhone xs max
    Pavan (Nov 19, 2019) on Amazon
    I Bought the iPhone XS Max as an upgrade to my oneplus 6T, a huge difference in itself.Why I upgrade to iphone xs max :-I wanna use ios device because over 5 years i am android user so i decided to upgrade to ios i.e. iphone xs max.Advantage:-Although the dimensions are the same, the XS Max has edge-to-edge screen which has incredible colours and clarity. I love everything about this phone and I'm glad I went for it over the XS.I'm REALLY glad I went for the Silver version though, as I was torn between all three colours - however, the Gold one is not the shade I hoped it would be, and often reminds me of a makeup palette, so I'm glad I went for the silver as it will go with any colour phone case.Disadvantage:-One of the main issues I have is with reaching and holding it in one hand. As expected, it is difficult to reach the top of the screen with one hand (which can be overcome with gestures using the bottom of the screen), however I sometimes find I lose my grip when typing with one hand as it seems 'top heavy', in a sense, especially when walking.Of course this is overcome by using two hands, but again I find my left thumb touches the screen which can sometimes mess with my inputs on the keyboard/multitasking, which is triggered by swiping on the bottom of the screen. Not the end of the World as that just comes with the shape and size of the phone/screen, and doesn't bother me enough to regret buying the phone. The rear glass casing looks amazing, though, and really adds something to the phone.I don't use a case so my phone is very slippy when on any non-even surface (e.g. pillow, chair etc) which is a pain but that's only because I don't have a case yet.
