Personally i feel the XS is a complete phone. My last Iphone 6 worked flawlessly for 3 years
I was confused between note 9, xs, one plus 6T and other latest handsets. Finally chose IOS over android as it is more polished than android and the apps in my opinion work better on an IOS
Did not go for the Max as i prefer the smaller size. Price is definitely high and i got it in a nice deal from amazon which knocked off 20k on the price tag Plus got free screen replacement cover, no interest EMI
Tips:Wait for a SALE to get maximum savings. This phone is worth it if you are getting it at a good deal. get a cover
So I am writing this review pretty late but I want to tell the story. Getting this phone from Amazon was my bad luck. The phone I received didn't work well. Apps used to crash and sometimes causing the phone to restart suddenly. After a week or so, pictures taken from 2x lens had a weird black dot on them. I had to get it 'repaired' from the Apple center. I had a S7 Edge earlier, which was IP68 water resistant and I had taken underwater shots with it multiple times, it never gave me any trouble. So I took some underwater shots with this new phone which I got from Amazon and it got water damaged. Apple refused to replace it so I had to get it done from outside sources which was pretty expensive. But the new replaced phone I got is working fine. Never crashed, no restarts, no weird camera faults. It was the phone that I got from Amazon which was defected.
I have been an iPhone user since iPhone 3GS. I have had iPhone 5 & 6 plus before. So it’s a great upgrade for me from 6 plus to XS. Although I wanted the XS max, but I am happy with XS. iPhone XS is overall a great phone. Great battery life. Display is amazing to look at. Camera is also great. Portrait mode is the best. Image quality is just too good. So if you are an iPhone user this one is for you. Although if you have iPhone X I would suggest not to go for this as not much difference. And even if u want to upgrade iPhone X is 25k lesser as of now. You are getting it for 75k on Amazon. But if you want the latest apple phone and use it for next 2-3 years with latest apple chip inside go for this.
