iPhone Xs Max

I have just taken delivery of the new iPhone (Xs Max), and the mobile reception is crap. I was getting three bars with my iPhone x, now it's down to one and sometimes no reception at all. I've had a look at the forums and it seems that I am not alone in my disappointment.

Has anyone else here taken the plunge and if so, is your experience the same?

Not gonna judge Max until he's had more game time. Hopefully starts against Bournemouth.

Has the reception improved generally out of interest?

I need to choose my new work phone end of this week for start of 2019, and cant decide on the 8 or one of the X models for next year. Always get a solid full 4G signal on my iphone 7 - plus i still like the idea of the home key

Time for me to update my iPhone 6s for a XR. The design of the X/XS/XR range with Face ID etc is a big factor, looking forward to getting my hands on it.

Thanks - I've never had issue with TouchID but my wife is always complaining it doesn't work very well. I suspect this carry on into the FaceID phones.

EDIT: can you add a second person? We have each other on the other's phone for TouchID in case anything happens. Or is there a better way for your other half to answer the phone? Thinking long motorway drives, or if I leave my phone at home and she needs to answer it.

Yes you can add two faces to FaceID, from what I have read.

Fingerprint tech, on Samsung and Apple (and at airports) has always been gash for me. Face ID is incredible. I have 1Password so also just scans my face to input passwords online. Love it.

You can add a second person, but if it's just emergency access you just need to know each others passcodes

It’s always nice that Apple can still genuine surprise us from time to time. All this stuff about embedded finger print sensors, and they come up with something more secure that works like a dream. Also after about two days you cease to notice the notch.

And a further surprise is mine has to go back as it has got a small white stain above the notch, right in my bastard eyeline.

Got my XR yesterday and am most impressed by it. It looks absolute class.

For a background, either home screen or lock screen, I would advise trying some of these out:

I presume there is a XS/XS Max equivalent but I have the plain white border on my lock screen and it looks very nice indeed.
