    Picked up an iPhone XS Max 256Gb Gold from local carphone warehouse today, paid £1299 as I also took a clear case, tempered glass protector and a wireless charging point.
    Got it SIM Free, as I don't like contracts.

    Very happy with phone, its super quick, screen is very impressive and the large size does not seem a hindrance at all, looking forward to trying out the camera on it in the future, now I've got three iPhones as I never chuck old ones away, so get a 4, 6 and now 10xs max. :)

    The fact my battery on the 6 was not last much longer than a day and it was starting to get slow was what pushed me to upgrade, I generally only bother every 3-4yr as am not that bothered about always having latest phone, good job at over a grand a go. :D

    Well that was quick, bare case already shipped my case lol.

    Now the wait for it to arrives and the inevitable custom charge rip off.

    At least I’ll be able to throw this nasty clear temporary case in the bin.

    The 'Measure' stock app is pretty neat for messing about with AR measuring.

    How about asphalt 9: legends ? Looks pretty intensive for a iOS game.

    Edit. Or warhammer 40,000 freeblade ?

    Hi there

    OK this may not seem important to many here, but having come from an iPhone 6 with no optical zoom, the camera quality improvement is incredible, you will have to excuse how dirty the car is as its not had a wash for over a month, but still:


    Without zoom:

    Using optical zoom:

    The improved quality and just how it seems to pick up similar shades and the optical zoom really keeps the clarity.


    Also the colours just seem more natural, much closer to life, really impressed. :)

    Love that feature, so much fun like measuring how big my wife’s butt is without her knowing :p. Thankfully with her obsession of yoga, her butt is still a nice handful.

    The only thing I don’t like about this phone is the poor reception. Was hoping it could be a firmware thing but think it’s a hardware issue now

    I’ve not had a problem with reception.

    Nice shots Gibbo, I came from a 6s plus and the camera is brilliant compared to that.

    Yes I was using a 6 previous, so the camera is for sure superior.

    Portrait mode is pretty cool, in Jamaica just now so got a few good shots of my son with it.

    Is there a way to swipe up an app and kill it rather than swipe up to hide then again to kill?

    Just swipe the app up and hold to get to the app switching screen. Then kill it from there

    I'm wondering if it's an iOS 12 thing, I have an X so a year old now and recently I've had a lot of dropped called. It'll come up on the screen and just say call failure and it'll show 1 bar or no bars, then straight away it goes back to 4 bars of 4g.
