    Perfection

    I was a skeptic of the iPhone X and Xs. I loved Touch ID, it worked perfectly. Face ID, after ACTUALLY using it when it’s your actual phone, is SO much more useful and fast than you realize. And the fact that it’s supposedly even more secure is great. I just want to say thank you to Best Buy as well. I applied for the Best Buy credit card and got accepted and was able to live life to the fullest and get this iPhone at the BEST price possible. Even though there are never sales on iPhones, Best Buy still makes it so that you get 5% back in rewards, and 10% back on your first purchase. So even though I paid full price for my phone, WITH AppleCare with loss and theft, I still get $130 to use in certificates after my return period for my phone is done. Legit you WILL NOT find that kind of deal on an iPhone ANYWHERE!

    Finally needed to purchase a new phone and after my iPhone SE bit the dust it was time to go looking. This display on this phone is amazing and pretty much won me over from the start as well as upgrading from a smaller phone to a “normal” size phone has its perks as well. It didn’t take long getting used to not having a “home” button and I prefer not having it and the Face ID feature works pretty well. These phones aren’t cheap but I feel like they are worth it with all the technology upgrades over the last couple years. Battery life has been great so far and iOS 12 is an easy to use OS and give the phone a smooth, easy to use feel. Would recommend this phone to others.

    I purchased the Apple IPhone XS at the Best Buy In Plano and I’m so glad I did. The sales staff were so patient and took the time to bring me up to speed on some of the new options available on this product. I can’t stress enough about how the Best Buy team is and are some The Best Sales Staff to assist a customer with a new purchase. The phone at first can be little intimidating but for the most part many of the procedures are very intuitive. You will have great fun with all of the options that this phone has. Oh the camera is awesome too. Highly recommend. Highly recommend phone and outstanding staff.

    I have been purchasing Apple products for many years, so you can say I have been satisfied with the brand .The iPhone XS 64 GB in gold looks great, the sleek appearance is awesome and it fits neatly in the palm of the hand. As usual it has features and apps for daily lifestyle, entertainment and of course business. It keeps me functioning optimally and the graphics for entertainment is just superb. The camera takes great detailed pictures and videos. Overall if you love high quality and top class personal items...the iPhones XS is the way to go. Many options are available...but if you research well.... you will agree this is the best appropriate buy!!

    I love this phone. The battery life is great. The camera is awesome. The screen clarity is beautiful. I was reluctant about the no home button but it took 5 minutes to get used to. Facial recognition works wonderful. I would recommend this device to anyone. My only complaint is I paid cash therefor the device was not removed from the box and set up in store. I asked for the space gray and the sales rep provided me the rose gold. Didn't realize until I got home. Considering the phone I had at the time no longer functioned without being plugged into power, I dint have much choice.

    I had an iPhone 7 prior and was pretty fed up with it so I finally pulled the trigger and got the iPhone Xs. I can't complain as it seems like it a nice step up. Fast and responsive and the user interface seems intuitive. Wasn't sure if I was going to like the facial recognition but I really do seeing i had issues prior trying to use the thumb button when wearing gloves, etc. So for me it's been a purchase well worth it. If the novelty wears off and it starts to go back to being a bad apple experience as with the iPhone 7, I will update this review.

    I hate hate hate changing phones, so when I upgrade, I get the latest one available so I won’t have to do it again any time soon. I haven’t figured out how to best use the camera yet, not obvious how to use all the great features. I bought this at Best Buy rather than the apple store or thru my carrier because I could use my Best Buy credit card for 5% off, which is more than I could get anywhere else. 5% is better than nothing, especially when you’re spending upwards of $1G.

    Nice upgrade from an Iphone 5

    A lot of great features on the Iphone XS. Especially when you are upgrading from an Iphone 5. The color had a sleek and smooth finish to it. It is not matte like the Iphone 5. Only issue with taking photos is that there appears to be a filter that cannot be turned off. For example when taking a selfie my face in the picture looks like I have makeup on. I am a guy and DO NOT wear makeup. I turned off the HDR and this issue still continues. Perhaps a software update will address this camera issue.

    After android came out and kept crashing on me and couldn't answer calls so many years ago i will always get another iPhone.No more lost jobs because i can always answer the phone and so glad i no longer have to deal with at&t's service since 9 years ago. Thank God! This Phone works great had it for a couple months and the cordless charging is why i forked over the money for this one. Oled screen and no more frayed cords which i have many i have paid for

    I was torn between the XR and the XS. I eventually decided that since I keep my phone for at least 4 years the extra money would be worth it for the better screen and camera. I have not been disappointed. The screen is vibrant and sharp. The camera has been great. I especially like the real 2x zoom. I also like the smaller size. Coming from a 6+ I was wanting something smaller. I have not missed the bigger phone.

    Best iPhone Yet

    I got this for my wife, and while I'm an Android user, I have some iPhone envy. It takes great pictures, is super fast and I love the face unlock. The screen is beautiful and vibrant. If you're getting a new iPhone get this one. I think the iPhone XS Max is too big, this is all the screen you'll need IMHO. Only drawback as EVERYONE KNOWS, is the price, my goodness are phones expensive now. I don't anticipate upgrading this one for a long time...

    I came from an iPhone 6 to this Xs (10 ess? Xs? Excess? Man the Apple marketing team really flubbed the name on this one). Bad naming aside, it's a fantastic upgrade and I've completely gotten used to FaceID. It's responsive, fast, not as heavy as I imagined it would be and the screen is great. Pricey, but after 7 years I figured it was worth it. Hopefully this phone will last me another 7!

    I just couldn’t bring myself to buying the Xr for $250 less, it was just a bit too large for comfortably fitting in my front pocket, especially while sitting. The battery easily lasts 2-3 days with my type of usage usage. I replaced a Droid Turbo that had to be charged every day. I do miss a lot of the Droid features, but I’ll adapt. I’m gaining a more solid os and better vetted apps.

    I came from the iPhone X 64GB to this phone. It's not a huge upgrade. But it is slightly faster, there is a few more camera features added with the latest update, battery life is better and face id is even faster. Also, they were running a special where I got the 512GB for the same price as the 256GB. So score! I'm completely happy with my upgrade.

    Walked into phone area and asked for assistance getting the iPhone and some accessories and the workers were very helpful in showing me where everything was to choose from. I upgraded up several generations this time around and am genuinely happier than I thought I was going to be with the newest iPhone. Would suggest apple care if buying outright and not through your phone service provider.

    This phone is equivalent to the other iPhone models. The camera is better and the sound is great. It takes a minute to adjust to the screen, it is difficult to unlock,etc with protective case on phone due to screen sensitivity. It has faster processing BUT I have had to use the ‘turn off/ turn on’ trick several times because of phone freezing

    Waited for the Xs because of the faster processor and it doesn't disappoint. Beautiful 4K video. Good sound and Siri even sounds more polished. I came from a iPhone 5. I had to google how to turn it on and off. The top power button is gone. No headphone jack as well. Get some Airpods. The home button is now a swipe up from the bottom. Overall this is a great phone, IMO.

    I have been a long time iPhone user. While the processing’s seems faster, the screen looks awesome & the pictures taken are great, and it is a progression from the 6s, I’m not sure it’s worth $1000 IMO. I miss Steve Jobs. He was such an innovator & perfectionist. For a grand, I would expect him to have given us so much more.

    They keep getting more expensive. Most item price come down as they mature not the Apple Stuff. Lot of things have changed and it take a long time to learn how to use your new Phone. First no Ear Phone plug so you have to junk all you ear phones and buy Bluetooth. Another expense and bother some thing to learn and use. Might be a bit faster response in os.

    I love the understated gold color. Super classy and looks great in a lot of the clear cases. My mom loves her phone. However, I can’t discern any differences between this phone and the regular X. Makes my mom happy though, so it is worth it in that sense. If you have the extra money and want a pretty phone, this fits the bill.
