Apple iPhone XR review

23 October 2018
Now updated with full test findings. The iPhone XR is the third iPhone to be launched this year, after the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. While the two iPhone XS models are nearly identical save for the size, the iPhone XR is a significant departure for the iPhone X series and possibly a new chapter going forward.

Shiny, 18 Oct 2019I love iPhone very much so 15th oct only I bought iPhone.But, it... moreThe camera actually beaten the Redmi Note 7, that's an Android.
The quality is just as good as a Samsung S10e (if you want Android flagship), but you have no telephoto or ultrawide. 11 is even better.

i never mind the LCD, it is still more accurate than OLED ...hence the latest ipad pro uses LCD not OLED :p

When we use the Internet using mobile data or Wifi, many of the time any websites are not opening or enormously slow in opening a websites, I have been experiencing this problem when I was using iPhone 6S last year and even now when I use my iPhone XR. For the information, during those time if I use my Samsung models, the internet was working fine and at good speed at the same Data operations. It’s seriously to be looked in by the Apple Inc. ~ Thanks

Anonymous, 03 Dec 2018I agree with you.I really find it funny when people don’t know their facts about history. I love when people think windows was first when it wasn’t. So android was not first not even close. Android was looking at making a phone however they only had a few Proto types and their prototypes were aiming at the BlackBerry. It wasn’t until the iPhone came out and was actually a kit that android went back to the drawing board and decided to forget Amy and a BlackBerry and try to aim at a full touchscreen phone. And it took them over a year before they even released the very first android phone and they were insignificant developing delay behind the iPhone for many years. Even today even though there are so many different android phones on the market only a few even come close to competing with the iPhone the rest are just generic cheap throwaways.

If you like android and it works for you that’s fine but don’t come in and say that Apple copies android when android was a 415 months behind the very first iPhone in fact there have been two iPhones released before the first android phone ever hit the market. So those of you who use android can think Apple because if Apple had not released a full touchscreen phone to the masses android probably wouldn’t of ever made one because they were aiming to try and go against BlackBerry. And to this day there is no android manufacturer who sells as much as Apple does. Samsung is it in second place and I believe LG is third-place but both of those are a significant drop behind iPhone sales the only reason that we see android phones as having a larger installed base is because when you include android you include everything from a $20 phone all the way to the high-end Samsung and LG phones.
I still remember when windows fan boys were saying that when does phones were going to be the future and they were going to put android and Apple out of business now windows does it make phones anymore.

Can you use a traditional set of 3.5 headphones with an adaptor?
Will it work?

Cheers.

Got the Iphone XR on Friday and the phone its self is fine but the camera is awful i hate it. Soon as you take the photo it makes you grey and takes away the color of the photo, Snapchat and Instagram camera is even worse so zoomed in and just makes you an awful color, Returning it to apple today.

  • peeter

it is heavy as a brick, and it doesn't justify the battery capacity. Even smaller and much cheaper samsung phones have better battery life than this. And why do they say the display is scratch proof? It gets full of scratches even when just lingering in my pocket.
