iPhone XR Review

Our Honest iPhone XR Review

By on October 16, 2018

Our Honest iPhone XR Review

Tech giant Apple revealed its latest products at the Apple event in September. One of the products it revealed was a ‘cheaper iPhone’, called the iPhone XR.

See:

The iPhone XR is a model Apple phone but it is cheap which makes it a catch.

However, if you are going to buy the phone or considering it, you might want to know what it has to offer.

Today, I am going to make it easy for you to decide whether you want to go with the phone or not in this Closest to Real iPhone XR Review.

iPhone XR : Review-digital trends

Price

The unique selling point of the iPhone XR is that it is available for $749 or £749. It is priced at $1229 (Australian dollars), the 64 GB model. For the 128 GB model, users will have to pay $799 or £799. Lastly, the 256 GB model will cost you $899, £899 or $1479 (Australian dollars).

It’s not that bad, if you ask me because the iPhone X, the basic model, was available for more than the price of the XR’s 256 GB model.

It’s worth getting!

Release Date

The iPhone XR will be available via pre-orders from October 19 onwards. It will be on Apple stores from October 26 onwards.

While the pre-orders of the new phone are just two days away, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will both be available for pre-orders before that.

The Screen

Now we come to the other main parts of the phone… it’s screen.

Well, the new iPhoneXR has a 6.1-inch screen and thick bezels. It uses the new Liquid Retina display. If you look at the screen on the whole, it is sort of lower quality than the other models or what new phones have to boast but it’s still not that bad.

We can trust Apple for its screens that I know and can say.

So:

Last year when newer screens and technology was available, Apple stuck to its ground roots and delivered something that was quite impressive.

This time, Apple is still favoring it with the Apple iPhone XR and trust me, it isn’t that bad.

The iPhone XR, however, has a screen ratio close to 18:9 which is different than the regular 16:9; therefore, it may take some time for users to get used to it.

The Feel

You know, the feel of holding a phone is a very important factor for users. Honestly, I felt that the phone is a little bigger so it does feel big in hands. You do feel it is a plus size phone but it doesn’t seem out of ordinary.

It is sleek like other Apple phones or sleeker, but seriously, it feels comfortable in your hands.

Camera

As far as the camera on the device goes, it is safe to say that iPhone XR’s camera is the weakest amongst the three phones by the company. It has just one sensor than two, especially for portrait mode. However, not sure if this is too bad in comparison or not. It, however, doesn’t have a second lens but it isn’t pathetic quality.

The iPhone XR’s camera has a 12MP sensor on its rear. The front has a TrueDepth camera that is used for selfies and unlocking facial features. It also has a Smart HDR that allows the phone to capture good elements of a picture.

Pictures from the XR model aren’t going to be very low quality, in fact, when we tested it, they came out to be sharp and colorful.

Battery Life

The iPhone XR might have a better battery life than expected. There is less power and a more efficient engine on board. Moreover, the screen resolution is also a little less which means that it won’t take up much battery.

Honestly, the iPhone XR isn’t bad. It is the cheaper phone so people might just be a little skeptical about it but on the whole, it is a decent phone for its price tag. Capturing elements of the iPhone X, the XR does have a lot to offer for budget-friendly users.

Verdict

We rank it a 7.5/10. We think it could’ve been better but if it was, wouldn’t it be equal to the pricier versions of the iPhone X?
