How many android fans came to the comment section without checking the performance score of the Xs? I know it hurts but you should see it, its quite amazing how it crushes the iPhone X which itself is still a lot faster than much newer android flagships.
As performance stands today we have iPhones on the first 4 places, and apple users dont even care much about benchmark performance compared to android fans in general. That makes it even harder to admit that the grand title for the very lowest performance per dollar goes to Note 9, now THATS what i call overpriced. By Note 9 standards the Xs should then cost somewhere around 3000 dollars, but you get it for only 1000, too cheap!
I see no financial reason to not upgrade from X to Xs, the price of XR makes sure that your used X can be sold for AT LEAST the same price if its still in good condition. Thats just 250 bucks to get an Xs instead, or 400 to upgrade to an Xs Max.
My kid has an X and i believe she will get the Xs Max in good time before Xmas. Now is the time to buy used X, they actually increase in price in late october once people realise how much disadvantage there is with XR, and i assume many who are now waiting for the XR will want to get a used X instead when the time come.

Nick Tagataka, 27 Sep 2018Unnatural colours? I assume you left Master AI on... Unfortunately it seems that a few people ... moreWell... yeah I did not turn off anything on it. I will not lie. That might be the case then.
Duel, 27 Sep 2018Nice to see honest ex android user! Yes android is like windows PC no matter what you do it's ... moreThis is why I like my iPhone so much despite being dated. I know that even in the future I will stick with iPhones now. I just like how fluid it is and easy to use.
I will get myself a better one when time comes.
DD, 26 Sep 2018But S9 Plus is trash. Doesn't even have Android Pie until now.None of the iPhones has Android, miking them pure trash.
The key feature in Android Pie is the new smarter power management that Samsung has shared with the Android community. That's often the case with Android launches, they tend to implement things Samsung has been doing for years.
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2018So glad I switched from android to the iPhone! Again, the best performance, best battery usage... moreBest what? All i read is: deaf, du'', blind. In the world of fanboy-ism probably you can see all that, in real world, iphone is just another slab. The only difference? More dumb, locked and expensive. Well, this 3 things tells them all.

The objective Guy, 26 Sep 2018Why would Apple do that? History has shown Apple will sell tens of millions of these and most... moreMost people nowadays, even the elite will no longer patronize iPhone because they know that there are many options available that are less pricey in the oversaturated smartphone market.

"The whole Android market just copied Apple's notched approach and now the scene is overwhelmed with such phones."
As I said - you see Apple's notch on the phones, not Essential's.
Its pretty straightforward. I'd recommend not buying the XS if you have an X. The iOS 12 update breathed new life into the X. The animations feel snappier and the ram management improves. I haven't been impressed with the iterative hardware upgrade but iOS 12 has left me impressed. The same with Android Pie
I still don't understand the android vs apple debate. If a person wants his phone to just work apple is better for them. If a person wants freedom and customization android is better. Y'all boys trippin with all these arguments
So glad I switched from android to the iPhone! Again, the best performance, best battery usage, best screen, best camera, best user experience. I don't care about customization anymore when everything else works better than it ever did on androids. Now I'm the leader amongst my friends who still use androids.
Nice to know that Kirin 980 has zero chance to be faster than A12, even they claimed otherwise, so Huawei pretty much will do anything to deceive poor souls even Lie
Realistic1, 27 Sep 2018I wish I could believe you. My last 2 phones were Android flagships and they did have issues. ... moreUnnatural colours? I assume you left Master AI on... Unfortunately it seems that a few people fail to find it and that's probably why Huawei decided to turn it off by default through OTA update...
Peewee , 27 Sep 2018LOL Poor iPhone cannot record 4K HDR. Then again Apple will advertise that it can be used ... moreiPhone XS can record 4K 30fps with Smart HDR activated, dunno what you're talking about.
Anonymous, 27 Sep 2018Not really. After every new iOS version, iPhone gets a little bit slower, forcing you to upgra... moreAh yes. The quintessential Xiaomi. The most fluid phones I've ever owned. Even the entry level Snapdragon 435 Redmi 4X's puts to shame the sluggish scrolling and animations of iPhones and the occasional stutters you get on the iPhone with Xiaomi's smooth, fluid, responsive MIUI. iPhone users should buy a Xiaomi Pocophone F1 even just once just so they will cringe at how much money they have wasted for that purported iPhone stutter free, lag free user experience. Apple has brainwashed them so much that they think most Android phones are still those jerky, stuttery phones running gingerbread.
