    I heard someone with a similar issue say they realized they were somehow zoomed in a bit. Maybe that's something?

    Its because of the aspect ratio .. Generally phones have 9:16 aspect ratio and 6t has 19:5:9 .. because of that stories get zoomed

    Great info! So I guess the question then becomes if there is a way to change the aspect ratio?

    No, it is an issue with the Instagram app and taller phones, even the iPhone XS is affected. Instagram need to update their service.

    You would think with the XS being affected it would already be fixed. I can understand not catering to OnePlus users, but even OP is big enough in areas of the world now that I think it should trigger some sort of action. Perhaps one of us should try contacting Instagram with the issue? Any volunteers? haha

    It's not an issue, that's how stories work, since they're fullscreen photos. Same thing, if you put text on top of your story, chances are that others won't see it.
    Until Instagram, like Snapchat, decides that stories do not get cropped, there's nothing anyone can do. ‍♂️
