As an Android user, what do you think about the iPhone XS?

On September 12, 2018, Apple held an event at its Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino to unveil its brand-new hardware for the latter part of the year. While there Apple Watch Series 4 and iPhone XR look awfully interesting, the main focus was on the iPhone XS.

This is the successor to last year's iPhone X, and this time around, is joined by a larger sibling in the form of the iPhone XS Max. Both the XS and XS Max offer minor improvements compared to the X, including a faster CPU, better image processing, longer battery life, and faster Face ID.

Looking through the AC forums, there are a lot of people that have plenty of thoughts to share on yesterday's announcements.

I'm going back and forth between Note 9 and Max. The Apple adherents are extremely angry on their boards as many want the the big OLED but Apple is squeezing them. Personally 128 gb is just as useful as 256 me anyway. I'm not going to fill either up. But since Apple is not offering 128 gb the choice involves in effect a difference in price of about 25%. Huge. I kind of like to change...


I'll be getting the wife the new iPhone XS for her birthday next month, because she does Apple. I personally prefer my Note 9, but it'll be interesting to do a hands on comparison.
