Design and Display
To the business of how it looks, the iPhone XR looks every bit like a flagship with thick surrounding bezels and the same metallic frame.
However, the bezels around the screen are a bit thicker and there is the fact that it is a bit chunkier. Also, it is water and dust proof with an IP67 certification like last year’s iPhone X.
This means the iPhone XR can stay in water up to 1 metre for 30mins unlike the IP68 label on the iPhone XS and XS Max. It is covered by scratch resistant glass and with oleophobic coating to prevent smudges.
A major difference can be noticed in the change from OLED to LCD to cut cost and a further reduction in resolution too.
In comparison to the iPhone XS, the iPhone XR is bigger, but smaller when compared to the iPhone XS Max. Sporting the characteristical notch, the display has a size of 6.1-inch and a resolution of 828 x 1792 pixels.
There is no 3D Touch display but you’ll still be getting the True-tone display on the smartphone.
Battery and Camera
Nothing yet on the battery capacity on the iPhone XR but you should expect the conventional a day usage on it. Since it’s using the same set of chipset as the others, you can expect a typical efficient power consumption on it. In addition, you still get to enjoy fast charge and Qi wireless charging is also supported.
One major change and a quite obvious one you’ve got here is the absence of the extra telephoto camera. This means no more 2x lossless zoom but it still manages to take impressive portrait shots and you can even adjust the bokeh effect.
It comes with the single f/1.8 aperture 12MP camera and the Truedepth 7MP front camera stays the same.
Hardware and Software
To be candid, the iPhone XR is a decent offering considering it is going to be featuring the latest Neural engine as the more premium models.
The Bionic 12 processor is the real deal when it comes to flagship prowess. Even if the RAM size has been reduced to 3GB on the smartphone, you’d still expect a stellar performance.
Unfortunately, the 512GB storage option is not available on the iPhone XR but you will still be getting 64GB, 128GB and 256GB storage space alternative. The latest iOS 12 is on board too alongside Apple Pay, Siri assistant and AI optimization.
