Apple iPhone XR review: The best iPhone for most people

 

These days, lots of smartphone makers are trying to offer more for less, and Apple is no exception. Its new iPhone XR features a lot of what makes the more premium XS and XS Max special, squeezed into a glass-and-metal package that costs significantly...

A12 chipset means excellent performance ; The best battery of any iPhone we’ve tested this year ; Typically great build quality ; 6.1-inch screen hits the sweet spot ; Colors!

A higher-res display would’ve been nice ; The camera lacks some flexibility ; More expensive than comparable Android phones

While these are definitely factors to keep in mind, I don't think they're deal breakers for the audience Apple is trying to reach. For those people, who haven't upgraded their iPhones in a while or who want a taste of what Apple is capable of without...

Apple iPhone XR review: a brilliant balance of polish, features and price

 

The iPhone XR brings almost the whole iPhone XS experience, but with better battery life and a lower price

Supremely slick and powerful ; Very strong camera ; Great battery life ; Excellent build quality

Less flexible camera system than the XS ; Can get a better screen for the money ; Lack of 3D Touch is weird

Apple iPhone XR review

 

The sweet spot of Apple's current iPhone range

Entertaining, musical sound ; Natural picture ; Good battery life

OLED rivals are punchier ; Headphone dongle is extra

Cheaper than Apple’s OLED iPhones, but the XR still delivers a picture and sound performance to be proud of

Apple iPhone XR

 

The Apple iPhone XR is the fashion-forward model of this year's iPhones, but it trades top-notch performance for a colorful design.

Available in gorgeous colors. Super-fast processor. Bright screen.

Wireless performance isn't up to par with XS models.

The best argument for the iPhone XR is its looks. From the front, it's nearly indistinguishable from iPhones that cost $250 to $350 more. From the back, the colored models are simply gorgeous. The XR simply makes you look fashionable, and I don't think...

iPhone XR review: The best iPhone value in years

 

If you're buying a new iPhone, this should be your starting point.

The less expensive iPhone XR delivers most iPhone X and XS features, including an excellent big screen in a comfortable body, fast performance, Face ID and wireless charging, and a camera that's mostly as good as the iPhone XS.

The iPhone XR's single rear camera lacks optical zoom and has a limited portrait mode. Its LCD screen, while large, bright and vivid, is still a step below the iPhone XS' OLED in contrast. The aluminum XR is slightly less durable than the steel XS.

The iPhone XR is the best iPhone for the price, delivering most of the advantages of the iPhone XS for hundreds less.

Apple iPhone XR review: An iPhone to reach the masses

 

The XR has the latest buttonless iPhone design, but without the big bucks asking price. Small compromises can save big bucks

Very affordable ; Large 6.1-inch display ; Still a good camera ; A12 Bionic processor delivers top spec power ; Great colour options ; Wireless charging ; IP67 weather/dust sealing

LCD display can't beat OLED on more expensive iPhones ; No 3D Touch ; No mobile HDR

For those who want Apple's latest design without spending a fortune, this is the iPhone for you.

The Apple iPhone XR Review: A Different Display Leads To Brilliant Battery Life

 

The latest generation of iPhones have been out for a couple of months now – we've extensively reviewed the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max shortly after their official release. Missing in the review was the lower-tiered iPhone XR – the main reason for this...

Finally, the big question is if the iPhone XR represents a good value and if it’s a viable choice for users. I think the deciding factor for most users is whether they find the design/ergonomics of the phone acceptable, as well as the display's pixel...

iPhone XR review

 

All things bright and beautiful

excellent battery life ; speedy ; multiple colour options ; reasonable price

LCD screen not as good as OLED ; No portrait mode for dogs, cats and bearded dragons

While it misses out on a few luxuries, the iPhone XR is the toughest, cheapest and sweetest iPhone you can buy

iPhone XR review

 

The iPhone XR was a marketing masterstroke for Apple: not only did it delay the launch of the third of its trio of 2018 iPhones, thus creating some mystery around it, it’s also managed to make this seem like 2018's ‘cheap’ iPhone....

Great battery life for an iPhone Attractive array of colors Lower price tag

Portrait camera mode doesn't impress Some apps still not fully optimized Lower-res screen

The iPhone XR is the most impressive of all the iPhones launched in 2018. Not because of the strength of the spec – the iPhone XS is slightly ahead in a lot of areas – but what you're 'saving' by going for this model far outweighs what you're losing. A...
