    Had the x for a month! No thanks! I hated the phone with a passion. Went back to my iPhone 7 Plus. It blows the x, xs,max. Especially the faceid. Faceid sucks b! Never will I get a iPhone again. I’m going with a android. And this is coming from a huge apple fan. After Steve apple has gone downhill.

      @Parker Wilkins well.. it's not exactly like a cockrouch, a few tentacles are missing :) but still looks like some kind of a bug stuck to the surface. The iPhone 5 and 3 for example had a way better camera integration. I really miss that..

    Upgrading from an ancient 5C 8GB To a XS 256GB, I can't even load snapchat videos and all of that, so to finally just be able to use snapchat smoothly..will be so amazing for me as I can't even load filters anymore, snapchat stories or have apps like twitter,facebook because my phone has too little storage to upgrade, I also just got into college so I think it's well deserved, I've never been a girl to care about phone status,this is just so I don't have to replace my phone for a while and because yay I got into college.

    Marques I can get an iPhone X 256 gig at Costco for $549 trading a Moto Z2 force. Current daily driver is a LG V40. I've never owned an iPhone. All my other tech is Apple. Is this worth buying in 2019? Thoughts? BTW love your reviews.

    How much of the available on board memory does the iPhone take away when you set it up , how much space is left for the user? Can you tell me on all 3 memory versions ( 128,256 and 512 ) ? Thanks

  • Techkid720
    Techkid720 Month ago

    Yeah but when you're saying tennis it's a Roman numeral X so it's not really even extra small it's straight-up excess like the Flash's daughter but even then it's still only 10s because it's not called X

    I need some advice. I have a iPhone 8 & I have the urge to upgrade to a XS I’m not crazy about the bigger bulkier phones so would you recommend the XS? So many people complain about the Face ID & other things that changed. What do you think?

    Can't lie but that notch is going to be disgusting by the time 2020 rolls around....s10 and s10+ are king!!!

    P.S. I am not hating on apple but on notches in general. And I'm not saying by any means that the Xs is a bad phone, but that price...

      Same here i am also using my Lovely Note 8 and i would love to switch to ios. iOS has smooth UI, 60fps gaming, and less mah battery but gives more than a note 9 battery, all day usable battery life, And iphone is great in terms of Optimizing their device and battery life too.
