Why didn't apple call the iPhone xs max the iPhone xl

If it costs 2000$ in my country, it better be made of vibranium.

About to switch from Note 8 back to iPhone. All the bells and whistles have been great for 2 years but I miss the simplicity of apple.

People tends to complain how expensive and lame iPhones are.
But many still buy them. Everyone has their own preference.

I'm going to a XS from a 5S in around 3 weeks. The 5S was my first phone. Got it for my 13th birthday, 5 years and 2 months ago. I know it'll be a huge difference and a decent learning curve. I can imagine that I'll spend hours just trying to find all the things 3D touch can do, and I'll probably spend just as long just marvelling at the camera and screen upgrades.

It's kinda funny. I'll be going from the first iPhone with a fingerprint scanner to the second one to have FaceID.

I’ve just read through various comments, mostly Apple-supporting replies to genuine comments about how much Apple is ripping us off.

Now, this isn’t a new concept for us, Apple have done it for years. Although being ripped off could be subjective, particularly if you don’t use many of the product features.

I switched to Apple when the iPhone 4 was released, since then I’ve had fairly regular upgrades. Each year the new product took the price of last years product, with the old one being knocked down in price until phased out. That was until the iPhone X was released. I’m baffled at how the iPhone X gives Apple the leverage to charge so much more? It’s a new year, new tech, and should be about the same price as the previous years flagship.

I think it was a test. A test to see how much consumers were willing to pay for a new design. Remember, the iPhone 4 was a brand new design over the 3GS, but the price wasn’t inflated by 50% (or so).

512gb in a phone is quite extreme, particularly with the advent of cloud storage. But, £1449 for a phone with this amount of storage is almost the same price as a current line MacBook. That’s just plain crazy.

What it has done, though, is pave the way for hugely inflated iPad prices due any day now. Again, there’s no reason for a price hike based on my analogy above, it’s a new year, new products, old flagship prices should remain. But they won’t, you mark my words.

Those ‘complaining’ and being told ‘well don’t buy them then’ are missing the point. The people now complaining are the ones who love Apple products, the ones who have spent thousands upon thousands over the years who are now being thanked by these ridiculous prices. £1449 for a phone. Just repeat that back to yourself.

The iPhone 8 Plus, which incidentally is the one I use and won’t be upgrading again for quite some time, is kind of old for 2018. It’s price should reflect that, with the X and XS/XS Max taking its place at similar prices to the 8.

It took days for Apple to run out of stock of the new phones for 2018 after release. Days. It used to take just hours, if that.

So yeah, I agree with the complaints, and so should you. If you don’t, you’re part of the reason for yearly price increases to come. We all know Apple’s pricing is premium, but not this year, this year they’re taking the p**s out of you.

Just upgraded from 6s to Xs. Camera quality is 🔥. Still getting used to it as i have a habit of clicking home button for no reason and kinda missing that in XS lol.

Iphone XS wont charge Apple be like "Nah, nothing wrong, your house outlets just cant provide enough volts/amps to charge our best iPhone ever made"

9:13 and people complained about skin smoothing on the iphone 😂😂
Kenan Gedik
They changed the camera size just enough to the point where you can’t use your iPhone X case on it. That’s just dirty.

I loveee the intro song, big like just for that

The IP68 thing was a little anti-climactic.

“it’ll be a great upgrade for people who have an iphone 7 or 8”

I love watching older tech videos that include the rumors about upcoming tech that hadn’t been released yet to see which ones of them came true, like the S10 finger print sensor under the glass rumor he mentioned in this video
Nik Verschuren
That intro track, wholy f. Ck!
Maroš Póč
Upgraded from 5s 16GB to Xs 256 ... hopefully it’ll last as long not even longer as the old guy. But so far all goooood :) peace from 🇸🇰

Seriously guys, we need to stop the trend of 1000$ phones. Not just iphone, but any phone. The more we take it for granted the more closer we get to 1500$ trend, which is exactly what we as the consumers do not want.

I’ve had a bad experience with my old XS because I put it in water for less than 30mins and it got water logged and the screen completely Dont, the fact is if you don’t want to break your phone don’t put it in water for more that 20 mins

Love my Xs Max, upgraded from the 7+ and the improvements between these two phones are insane. The screen alone is something to get used to and it’s so beautiful!

I’m upgrading from 7+ to a XS
Crystal Coconut
Not much change but alot of people still want that truely big screen from Apple for a long time ! And that super damn good 4K HDR camera recording phone !
Remy Fagerstrom
probably gonna wait a few years and upgrade to either this or the 11 pro from my 8.
Harrison Williams
Do yall ever just stop listening to Marques whenever Mac shows up in the background

Whoooo, that intro track!!! 🔥🔥🔥

Ando
This is a non-biased iPhone review and basically all the comments are either bashing Apple or praising their Android phone...
How about you all stop fanboying over which phone you personally prefer and praise this great video Marques made instead of disliking the video because you dislike iPhones.
Mathew Hastings
I’ve been watching you for about four years now, so I trust your review above the others. I bought the XS because I had the note 8 and got tired of the big phone after a year, I’ve had mine for three weeks and I don’t really have any complaints other than the notch, which only gets annoying when you play certain games full screen, other than that it fits in my hand like I wanted and does everything my Android did and more with less, so my hats off to you sir, I had to switch operating systems after many years as an Android user.

Phone : incremental update
Cash : 😛
Andre Schmitz
I am impressed, how can someone talk so much about a incremental upgrade.

I guess thats why he drives a tesla and I dont.
leo chavez
Do you know how fast the prices will go down for the Xs when the 2019 iPhone comes out
Graeme Sorrell
Wow. March 2019. Marques called it correct about in glass fingerprint scanners for OnePlus 6T and Galaxy S10
Saul Martinez
Golden rule with Apple: upgrade every 2 or 3 years rather than every year.
Carla Garcia
Am i the only one who doesn't like to show off that apple logo and uses random back cover?🙄
Abhishek Sarma
I loved the music 🙄
Joe
Yeah- you just buy an xs max so you can say- "oh, I have the xs max..."
Tek Minion
Great video as always, and you just talked me out of upgrading from my I-phone X. I have been using an android device as my work phone, and was wanting to ditch android completely and go apple, just because its easier for work. But thanks for stealing me away from the Xs
Vasimalla Prasanth
But i like your video because every video of yours bring me a satisfaction,Knowledge about the tech and many more
Crimson Arzuros
Marques's iPhone reviews are on a whole other level since he takes an objective standpoint rather than being an anti-apple or an Apple sheep.

6:10 I don't think I've seen many games run this smoothly.. And I used to do PC Gaming a whole lot...
