I got the iPhone Xs for my wife for Christmas. Her iPhone 7 was damaged and I decided to upgrade her phone. I thought it was going to be an issue with her knowing the finger print scanner was replace Face ID. But after using the phone for a few days she quickly was able to adapt to the new features in ios12
easy to use interface
still wish it had a finger print scanner
Absolutely love this phone. Much more powerful than my previous 6s. I had reservations about the Face ID but now can’t live without it. Works well in low light and is even faster than the finger ID on my previous phone. Camera is stunning and it puts the iPhone X to shame.
This phone is great overall. Def takes getting used to when using the screen swiping commands instead of home button I honestly don’t really notice it’s gone now. I will say having a popsocket is helpful because the phone is way heavier than the 7 and it gives you more of a grip. The phone is very fast and screen is bright. I feel like the battery lasts longer too
I have had my XS for two weeks now. It is my first new phone since the iPhone6. So it’s definitely an upgrade.
It takes outstanding video and pictures. I took a trip to Las Vegas and was very pleased with the way the pics turned out. The stereo sound on video recordings is crystal clear.
Swipe guestures took maybe a day to get use to. Now it feels natural. Face ID is nice. There is only one time that I miss the fingerprint scanner. Is when your using it laying on a flat surface, and the phone times out. You then have to pick the phone up so it can look at you. That, or type in the password. But it’s just a minimal annoyance.
All in all, the battery life is great, it gets me through the entire day. The display is beautiful. And the form factor of the XS is perfect for me.
If you are on the fence because of the cost, I was too. But I don’t regret the purchase at all. I highly recommend.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I’m upgrading to the XS from an iPhone 7. Plenty of new features to list, cameras are great, the phone itself feels really good in hand. The price tag however always makes me question the future. I’m keeping this phone for the next couple of years or at least until it gets a new face lift.

Apple iPhone XS and XS Max review: Pricey but future-proof
For better or worse, the iPhone XS Max is just a massive iPhone XS. That's great in some ways: its 6.5-inch display is fantastic for watching videos and lining up photos, and there's a much better battery here, too. That said, only a few app andFull Review
The iPhone XR is a great value. For a more affordable $750, you get the same key features as Apple's super-premium flagships — camera, processor, Face ID — for less dough. And you get more colors to choose from.Full Review
Apple shook things up last year with the introduction of the iPhone X, a phone that ushered the company into a new era of smartphone design. Its successor, the iPhone XS, is naturally superior in almost every imaginable way. Then again, its launchFull Review
A:AnswerThe screen size as the XR will be bigger than the XS unless you go with the max. There's also the 3D Touch for all the shortcuts into apps and previewing notifications on the home screen, although the XR has a haptic tough that is similar but not as fully integrated. The camera doesn't have the 2nd lens which is mostly useful for the 2x optical zoom. The screen on the XS is OLED where the XR is LED, although the LED on the XR is great its still not the quality of OLED you'll get on the XS. A plus for the XR is it gets the best battery life out of XS and XS max probably due to it running LED and not OLED screen. So if battery life is most important to you I'd go with the XR, I chose the XS max because I wanted all the top of line features and size.
A:AnswerThat is correct. You pay the taxes on the price of the phone you’re getting at the time of purchas /upgrade. Depending on your carrier or promo going on, you can expect to pay anywhere from 32-51$ a month depending on the configuration of the phone you select. Typically your first bill will also have an upgrade fee, again, depending on the carrier you have.
You can also purchase the device outright and not pay an increased Monthly bill
Hope this helps.
To qualify for the Best Buy gift card you would have to have your phone completely paid off ( owned ). The $32 you mentioned is considered an early upgrade. Since you're only 20 payments in out of 30, consider it like a lease.. AT&T requires that phone to be returned to them since it wasn't paid in full.
Hope that helps .
