If I don't buy AppleCare+ for the iPhone XS and if within a year, I need a screen replacement, is the repair cost still $42, and other damages $148?

Only after the 1st year, it becomes $418/$818?

So the benefit of AppleCare+ vs no AppleCare+ is basically just the extended year, and the express replacement (which is not available under limited 1 year warranty)?

Coming from a iPhone 7 now. Is calculating the cost/"risk factor" of not buying AppleCare+ this time as it's a lot more ex than iPhone 7.

Wrong, if you don't buy AppleCare+, your screen replacement from accidental damage will cost $418 even within the first year. The cost of $42/148 will apply if you're covered under AppleCare+'s 2 x accidental damage within the AppleCare+ coverage (2 years).

If your screen or phone happen to become faulty within 1 year without any drop or obvious damage, it's free to get it repaired under warranty..
