It’s not a gimmick, but it’s use is very niche (and I’m a bit worried about life of phone’s battery in the process among other cons).
I bought the X for the reduced footprint + largish screen. XS/Max really didn’t have any features that jumped out as gotta have and this one wouldn’t be one either. Which is good in its own way: the urge to upgrade every year or other year isn’t as high. Not good if you’re a phone manufacturer I guess.
