The iPhone XR released recently in October 2018 is an excellent Apple device. It is priced a bit lower than the other iPhones, and has similar features as its more expensive counterparts. However, it does miss out on a few tiny specifications, and some of the technology used on this phone is older.
In this iPhone XR review, let us explore all the iPhone XR specs and features in detail:
iPhone XR is a great smartphone that packs a punch with its performance and cameras. It is slightly more affordable than its more expensive siblings are, and is a smartphone worth buying. However, it is still not as affordable as we would like.
The iPhone XR has a glass front and back. The front glass is “the most durable glass ever in a smartphone” according to Apple. It has an aerospace-grade aluminum frame, as compared to the steel frames in the more expensive iPhones; but it still feels and looks premium.
This phone has a 6.1 inches display with a resolution of 828 x 1792 pixels. It has a big enough display, but not as large as the iPhone XS Max. It uses the same display technology as the iPhone 8 – which means that although the display is great, it does not offer the richer blacks available in the OLED displays on iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max, and is also slightly less sharper.
The iPhone XR has excellent cameras. It has a 12 MP rear and 7 MP front camera setup. As usual, the iPhone cameras are state-of-the-art, and the iPhone XR is no different in this regard.
This phone contains the Apple A12 Bionic chip that runs like a charm. It is similar to the iPhone XS duo, and the performance great no matter how heavy the usage, or how quick the multitasking.
It operates on the iOS 12, upgradable to iOS 12.3, which makes the operations run smooth and without any glitches, in the typical Apple fashion.
iPhone XR comes in the 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB variants. All three variants have a great internal storage, depending on your requirement. It does not have an expandable memory slot.
The iPhone XR has a great battery life with its powerful 2716 mAh battery. The battery backup is similar to the iPhone XS Max, and lasts an entire day even with heavy usage and load. iPhone XR supports fast charging, but unfortunately the company does not provide a fast charger; however, it has the wireless charging as well.
It comes with connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, Radio and USB 2.0, proprietary reversible connector.

The iPhone XR is the slightly more affordable version of the iPhone. It does not trade its quality for its better affordability, and still manages to retain the amazing performance and camera quality that the other expensive iPhones have. It also finally offers the dual SIM option. Although the display could have been better, the iPhone XR does provide a better value for your money than the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. Overall, it is a premium phone by Apple, which is a bit more accessible and affordable than its more expensive siblings.
However, other Android flagship models can stand in competition to the iPhone XR. These models are Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and the OnePlus 6T.
