    I went from the X to XS Max and I am loving the Max! The display is absolutely gorgeous and the size makes watching video, surfing the internet and playing games a joy.

    My wife has the X and it feels great in the hand but the display seems so small and cramped now.

    I did, mostly for the screen size, to me the X was more like an iPhone 8 even though it was a full screen. Plus having even more storage space was a plus.

    I came back to the plus size...7+, 8+ to X then back to XMax as soon as it was available. Enjoyed the X but always wanted a bigger display.

    Jumped from X to XS Max. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an amazing device. BUT with every day that passed I realize I could have stuck with my X and am tempted to sell my XS Max and buy an XS. Personally I feel the X/XS size is just the sweet spot. Just my 2cents

    Using and setting up X models are why I waited for the Max.

    Why: There are still important apps that are not updated for full screen. The Max size has been enough to use my laptop less and not have to carry it as often. The battery life is a reason.

    Considerations: This is a personal decision issue. We all used these things differently. I'm an IT administrator so the screen size is very important. I understand why many want the more compact phones.

    Mine too. I bought a Xs and a Max at launch. The Max was just too wide and big. Not comfortable for me to type on. Made my carpal tunnel start to flare it. I returned it and went with the Xs.

    Just got the XS Max from the X on Apple Upgrade program.

    Love it. Even though the X screen is bigger than the screen on a 7 or 8 Plus I really struggled reading stuff on websites and emails and my sight is 20/20.

    XS Max is much clearer and is the phone the X should have been.

    Just did this weekend, and I enjoy the extra screen real estate and have to say the difference doesn't feel as large as it did going from a non-Plus to the Plus models. I like it!

    It’s clearer? It’s the same pixel density as the X. Sharpness is the same.

    In my case the larger screen makes all the difference for apps not updated to all-glass type, but also helps with web pages even if they are responsive design. If a site is not responsive design or mobile turning the Max sideways really helps.

    I can't put down the X or XS but do suggest checking out the Max if you do a lot of work and reading via your phone.

    I told my self I was not going to upgrade from the X. I even was up when pre-release went live so I could not order an Xs, though I did order the new Watch. Of course, while I was "not ordering," someone posted about using the iUP (Apple Upgrade) program. I ended up signing up with iUP -- and I had a deadline of Wednesday (as I recall) to order a new phone. So, despite having the approval, I kept telling myself I would not order the XS Max. Tuesday evening, there was one store in my general area that still had the Xs Max I wanted available for launch day pick up, so I ordered it.

    I'm mostly happy. I love having a larger screen again, just that I get frustrated if I need to use in one-handed or occasionally because of how large it is in my pocket.
