iPhone XR Design

iPhone XR specification and price

The design is elegant, we think that the phone looks beautiful too. The glass backs are available in many colors: red, white, blue, yellow, coral, black and white. No matter what color you choose, the phone will always look really good. The color, hues and aluminum match with each other seamlessly. iPhone XR is only slightly thicker than iPhone XS, we don’t think that it’s even noticeable during regular use. The bezels are also thicker too, so there is less display ratio, but still, we don’t think that it’s a big deal, especially for the price. The screen is beautifully clear. Thanks to the Liquid Retina LCD screen. But of course, it’s no OLED like in XS. Also, the bezels are part of the screen, most of the time you won’t even notice that there are bezels on the phone. If you are already familiar with iPhone 8, iPhone XR might feel much bigger for you.

The build quality is the same as XS, durable glass on the front but slightly not as tough on the back. It’s water-resistant, it can withstand 1 meter of water for 30 minutes compared to 2 meters for the same amount of time for XS.

The camera is superb. The wide-angle camera sensor performs the same as XS, complete with the same Smart HDR functionality which able to deliver better highlights in the shadow. Portrait mode is also available but only works for people. For something else, the phone will tell you that it’s waiting for a person to enter in the vision. We don’t think that anyone who bought iPhone XR will complain about the camera, it’s pretty much everything that you expect from your smartphone and more.

iPhone XR Performance

iPhone XR specification and price

Speaking about performance, there is no room for doubt. With A12 processor, iPhone XR Specification runs at the highest speed for a smartphone. There is barely any competition in this regard. The chip is the same as iPhone XS only with a smaller amount of RAM (3GB rather than 4GB). In real-world usage, there is no difference at all in terms of performance. On Geekbench 4, XR scored 11.312 points. Compared to XS which scored 11.420 points, it’s pretty much the same. During the video editing test, XR takes a mere 40 seconds to convert a 4k clip to 1080p. that’s just ridiculous. Only a second behind XS and way ahead of other competitors such as Pixel 3 XL (2:42), Galaxy S9+ (2:32) and OnePlus 6 (3:45).

There are two options available 64GB, and 128GB, depending on your location these options might be limited. 64GB should be enough for most people but we think that 128Gb is the sweet spot. Space gives you more room for music, pictures, videos, etc. and the price gap is only $50. Unfortunately, there is no 512GB option for the XR.

iPhone XR Price

It should be obvious at this point why iPhone XR is very popular among Apple fans. You get almost the same features as the flagships iPhone XS and XS Max at a much affordable price. iPhone XR price is around $599 for 64GB or $649 for 128GB. Features that are not present on iPhone XR are perfect OLED display and dual rear cameras. So, if you don’t need those features iPhone XR might be the perfect smartphone for you.

Very Good
