    The max feels comfortable to use and coming from the x I am enjoying the size. I don’t feel cramped using it or hindered while handling it. Makes me feel that the purchase was worth it.

    I know. It’s exactly the right size.

    It does feel heavy though.

    Heavy a bit but that gives it a good feel to me. I hate cheap feeling phones.

    Just opened my Max and wow it doesn't feel huge it is better than my iphone x glad I did upgrade vs listening to folks saying to. This screen is perfect back to a large size screen and all screen sweet.

    The speakers are also vicious. I haven’t heard speakers that sounds this good on a phone.

    Compared to the X looks big but it doesn’t feel big, it’s weird.

    But yeah, I agree. It's actually about 1/4 inch shorter than my Note 9. I love the size of the XS Max!

    Feels exactly like the Plus, which is fine for me. It's going to be interesting to see how I adjust to it one-handed seeing that I have to stretch out a bit more.

    Yeah. It’s the same size as the 8plus so it’s perfectly fine.

    Yeah it definitely doesn’t feel big, and it’s easier for me to manage than previous Plus sized iPhones. It’s nice.

    I think part of it is that you aren’t forced to keep your thumb down by the bottom for Touch ID. You can keep your hand more towards the middle and get full range.

    Yeah, but I mean in general, it doesn’t feel as slick as previous iPhones. I just feel like I have a better grip on it in general.

    I’ve stayed away from the Plus Line for years. Always felt uncomfortable. Never got use to the X. Have had the XS MAX since the this morning and think it’s the best iPhone yet. Can’t figure it out. It’s somewhat deceiving, but clearly better IMO

    The screen width and length is perfect for viewing content. The thinness makes it easy to pocket and hold. The weight gives it substance and for me it is the best phone I’ve ever seen in its form factor. It would be nice if it had features that took advantage of its size and it wasn’t the price of a MacBook.

    This was the phone I wanted last year. It feels great in hand and I find it easy to one hand for the most part.

    Agreed! I was personally disappointed when I got the X last year as I thought it was going to be a little bigger than what it was. Now with the X Max, I'm happy with the size.

    Been using mine for a few hours and I am seriously impressed. At first when I got the original X, I thought it was big, as I have never like bugger phones. However, after just a few hours I am loving the Max.

    When I first unboxed it I had big eyes, thinking I wouldn’t be able to use it with one hand. Reach ability fixed that up, quick and in a hurry.

    Coming from 7 Plus, it feels like 8 Plus with all screen. Just what I expected.

    Doesn't feel big at all to me coming from the 7 Plus. I'm glad I waited a year. The X actually felt cramped to me and that's one of the reasons I didn't upgrade to it. The MAX is a perfect form factor for me.
