New iPhone Xs
Posted by: MartyStickle
Date: September 22, 2018 08:30AM
Enjoying my new phone which arrived from T-Mobile yesterday. Upgraded from a 7 which went to my wife. I’m still getting used to the new gestures and lack of a home button. Easy to transfer all my stuff from iCloud, including activating the cards on Apple Pay, etc. Now on to learning the new camera, which is the main reason why I upgraded. Also need to dispose of wife’s old iPhone 6.

I have heard reviews that people are liking the Xs. Good news for consumers and Apple investors.

Yes, it feels like a real upgrade from the 7. Maybe not so much from an 8 or X, though. The Excess Plus is proving to be particularly nice so far.

Yes. I got a Spigen (sp?) case and a wireless charger that happened to both come yesterday from Amazon too.

Glad you like it! (Slightly) better than a X, but the same price?

What I don't get the hate for the Xr. Would they prefer a X for $899? I'm still holding out for a Xr Mini (5/5s/SE sized Chasis) to replace my 6s.

I’m waiting to upgrade from my 7 to the XR. My wife decided she needs 512GB, though, so she is wanting an XS. Based in n the BOGO offers this week from AT&T, I’m thinking my XR will be free if she gets an XS. However, that means she has to wait a month also, which she is not happy about.

Apple is going to sell a TON of the XR models.
