    I preordered the gold XS 256, received it on Friday, returned it this morning. I thought leaving the plus for the XS would satisfy what i been accustomed to...it was close but not dead on. Its just really difficult to go back down in size, once you’ve had the plus for so long..i digress. Anyway, i didnt like the gold color as much as i thought i would, but i was tired of getting space gray (only color i ever had). Went with the clean look of the silver this year over the stealth look of the SG. Definitely glad I switched before the 14 days were up.

    Yea i thought by choosing gold it would help differentiate between the X and XS but it wasn’t for me. Its a nice color that looks different from different angles but its more for women imo...no knock against the fellas who got one lol cause i was one for three days lol

    I'm a man and I have the gold 512GB iPhone XS Max and I absolutely love the gold color. I had the silver X last year so and the matte black iPhone 7 Plus before that so the gold is different for me. I didn't like the pink hue of the rose gold color so I'm glad Apple actually used gold this time.

    No shade at all, it just didnt meet my expectations..even though i will say this gold is the best yet. And for me, I typically rock apple cases so the color is not a huge dealbreaker for me either way

    Good to know you're happy with the results.

    I miss finger as credentials but am getting used to the phone but am getting used to it. I also miss the all black matte anodized feel but am getting used to the Max. I am totally pleased with the white model via not as white as earlier, the natural finish, and the way it's still a black phone when the screen is off.

    Overall I'm glad there's such variety.

    No problems here. We all like what we like.

    I use cases too so color isn't all that important to me either. Truth be told, I only got the gold color because that was the only color option available at the time at Best Buy. But I see now my local Best Buy has the space gray 512GB XS Max in stock and now I kinda wish I waited a few days. C'est la vie.

    When I decide to upgrade, I will go with either the SG or Silver. The Gold is an absolute no go for me. SG was a lock because there is no real case limitations (almost all work with it) that come with it but the more I see the XS Max Silver the more I start leaning towards it lol. It looks classy! In any event, congrats on the device - enjoy it!

    I had SGX then the SX, now SGMAX, i prefer the SG with the black apple leather case, other than that no different.

    On another subject just can't call it the XS Max, its just MAX to me, lol.

    Kind of odd that gold is associated with women for phones. Men have been wearing gold jewelry forever and no one has called gold girly until now.

    I think because phones are electronics and the color could be like an accessory? So typically, girls would choose flashy colors? And men would opt for the basic black or some dark color? Idk its weird cause i like gold jewelry and have worn it for years

    Now, rose gold is girly and each color has its own issues.

    I got gold and it’s pretty flashy for me so I had to tone it down with a carbon fiber case. The white one has too much silver chrome and reminds me of a 70’s Cadillac, and the black one has no personality. I would still choose any of the three over an other brand.

    Glad to hear you’re happy with your decision. I myself wanted the gold and I’m still enjoying it. I had the silver X last year, it’s definitely nice to have color options now without having to deal with a white face plate.
