    Last week, I was so sure of myself here in these forums that I would give up my Note 9 for the iPhone XS Max and I wouldn't return to the Note 9 as my daily driver. After spending a week with the 512GB gold iPhone XS Max, I felt stupid that I paid so much money for it ($1,449!) and I returned it. It had very few features when compared to the Note 9. I was getting weaker cell signal with the iPhone and the display looked like it was made by LG (Pixel 2 XL owners know what I'm talking about). It was not a good display at all. The cost value was not there for the device.

    I'm glad to be back on my Note 9. I'm on the device I really want.

    That's an expensive lesson. Even if the iPhone was cheaper, I wouldn't try it. At least you saw it first hand instead of just listening to the reviews.

    Hmm, thought iPhone Xs max has an almost perfect screen according to displaymate?

    No. Some were made with Samsung panels and some were made with LG panels. DisplayMate must've measured the Samsung panels. There are many YouTube videos talking about the muted colors of the iPhone XS Max display. Erica Griffin has a video on that, I believe.

    The iPhone XS Max is using Intel modems. Intel has always been inferior to Qualcomm when it comes to modems. There are many threads on MacRumors, Reddit, and Twitter about the terrible cell signal strength on the iPhone XS Max.

    I know my iPhone 7+ with the Intel instead of Qualcomm radio had **** signal and would drop calls on LTE. Wonder if they ever fixed that. Sucked having to force calls over HSPA

    I'm pretty sure the max oled panel is manufactured by lg. Or at least the majority of it, sounds like they still don't know what they are doing.

    In my experience Android has always gotten better signal. My iPhone x was like night and day, I have yet to drop a call on the note 9. That happened several times a week on the x.

    Welcome back, this is such a solid phone. I don't really like Samsung at all, that speaks volumes to me!

    I have both the Note 9 and the Xs Max and in my case the Xs has the better screen by a mile. But Oled screen are always a lottery. Exchanged my Note 8 four times before I got an acceptable screen

    Hope you didn't get a glitchy Note9, either. I know they are few and far between. Mine seems perfect. If I had to swap it out, I'd be a little worried.

    For $1,449, a display should never be a gamble or the luck of the lottery. Many places only allow you to exchange an item ONCE and that's it. I went through two iPhone XS Max and neither of them had a Samsung-quality display.
