I didn’t want to derail another topic with hardware questions but I am looking to make an upgrade and I am doing my due diligence and looking for opinions. With yearly Apple releases and who knows how many android options, perhaps this thread can be used by some of you should you have any issues or questions.
I currently have an iphone 6+. It was a hand-me-down and I’ve been using it since Jan. I quickly got used to the larger size and using two hands for many activities; it is all second nature to me at this point. I am looking to upgrade, though, and am torn between all the new models. It seems to me the the XR is simply the “budget” option and, while an upgrade to my phone, isn’t up to the XS standards. I’m a little torn between the XS and XS Max because the idea of getting the same screen in a smaller package is appealing, but since I’m used to a big phone, the idea of getting a phone with the same dimensions but a much larger screen is also appealing. I do feel like Apple is gouging us with the prices, but my budget can accommodate any model; that doesn’t stop me from doing a cost-benefit analysis, though.
Do any of you have an experience with the XS? Or, I suppose, the X. How well do they handle old games, considering the aspect ratio is different? Any opinions?
Note that I’m locked in to Apple because of some professional apps that both my wife and I need for our respective jobs. And the library I’ve created over the past however many years I’ve been buying off the app store.
