Last month I upgraded my iPhone 6s Plus to the iPhone XS Max. I had the opportunity to upgrade last year but decided to wait a year because I didn't really see any "must have" features in the iPhone X. At the time, I knew that the camera was better, but it didn't seem worth upgrading.
After using the new phone for a week I am very happy to upgrade. Its a pretty powerful device and I am looking forward to using it.
iPhone 6s Plus Usage: 2 years, 11 months, 5 days (1,070 days.) It cost $399 on contract, which means that it cost me about .37 a day. Check out some of my posts on the iPhone 6s Plus.
I still have the iPhone 6s Plus and will use it every once in a while.
Whenever I get a new phone, the first thing I do is take a screenshot of the main screen after it loads up. I didn't realize how much bigger the iPhone XS Max screen was to my iPhone 6s Plus.
Overall Phone Screen Size:
This iPhone will replace my Olympus ZX-2 - which I spent a great deal of time researching back in 2015. I'll still bring the camera on vacation. But for the most part, the iPhone XS Max will be my primary camera.
You can read about all the different cameras that I considered looking at back in 2015 on my Olympus XZ-2 iHS page. I'll update the page with how it compares to the iPhone XS Max.
I don't have an iPhone case yet. I plan to get one at some point. I just need a good case that lets me hold the phone right.
