    With a crazy high price that sets new benchmarks for phone pricing, it can be difficult to see the logic in the iPhone XS Max. Yes, it’s an iPhone with a big screen and an equally big price, and in many ways, that “XS Max” is an indicator of that. Read more

    • Great screen, Lovely design, Excellent camera, Fantastic sound, Solid battery life, Gigabyte 4G LTE (finally), Better water resistance
    • Very expensive, No headphone converter in the box, Really expensive., Not 5G friendly, even for the price, Did we mention it's expensive?, Dual SIM doesn't work in Australia (yet)

  1. Quite pricey but quality is superb

    I would have given it 5 stars but the price is still on the expensive side no matter what therefore 4 stars. With that being said wow you will be surprised by the screen size if you are not used to big phones. But this by far the best screen I have seen compared to all the iPhones I had before. Read more

    • I have nothing bad to say about this phone, a big enhancement on my 7 Plus. Much easier to use and navigate around the features. Big size screen which I prefer and very good value for money.
    • No, superb new phone and design. Do not accept anything other than Apple
  3. Takes some time

    • It’s so responsive compared to my iPhone 6 that I had. And the feel of it is very premium to the touch. The camera and screen excellent
    • Would be nice if a little lighter but then it is an iPhone SX Max so can understand the battery being bigger
