CanÂ’t see any difference and itÂ’s wasting a ton of battery and power to push useless pixels thatÂ’s you cannot see.
Kandang, 08 Nov 2018"13h of web browsing and 15h of video playback" For that purpose iPhone user need fastest chip... morePoint is that other flagships with bigger batteries don't last longer than the iPhone. They have bigger batteries because they have less efficient CPUs, less efficient OS, less optimised apps.
A fuel efficient car doesn't need such a big fuel tank as a less efficient car.

13h of web browsing and 15h of video playback. That's matters to 95% of people. Those who don't spend 10h talking on their phone every day.
How well does the Note 9 do with its 4000mah battery and its amoled display ? 12h36 and 16h45 respectively.
The Xr does have good battery life. Every reviewer says it.

Anonymous, 07 Nov 2018LOL, tell that to Jon and his 20 friends who chose the iPhone XR LCD over Poco OLED screen, no... moreUh, Poco has an LCD. As for the XR screen, I guess the biggest problem would be if you were used to 1080. I've seen the screen, and it's not half bad, but I do see a little softness, but just a little
BTW, the latest screen tech everyone is touting these days are HDR support & DCI-P3 colour support; better contrast ratios & more colours!
Nothing to do with pixelation or how many PPIs.
iPhone XR has one of the best colour accurate LCDs (almost as good as, if not better than some OLEDs), extremely bright (600 nits, meaning whites are very good).
Only thing it's not good at is the black levels (can't go as dark/dim/black as OLEDs)
I'd take a perfectly calibrated "lower" PPI LCD screen over a higher PPI but badly calibrated OLED anytime.

Notice they didn't say anything about sharpness/pixels. They were all talking about colour accuracy, viewing angles and contrast ratios.
This is why OnePlus hasn't included a 2k screen ever, because you really cannot tell a difference in sharpness at all between 1080p/2k. Heck, even Samsung s9/Note with their 2k screens on default are set at 1080p.
Phone screen technology has already advanced to the point we cannot see pixels anymore, since the first Retina screen in iPhone 4 years ago.
You can refute all you want, but thats the basic biology and threshold of our human eyes.
patoka, 06 Nov 2018It's not about whether one can see pixelation but rather that higher resolution screens are mo... moreWell as much as I agree with you on TV resolution, you can't really compare TVs screens to Phone screens. When comparing to TVs (assume all are about 50" inch screens):
1080p TV - Less than 200ppi
4k UHD/QHD TV - about 200ppi
Both screens are still below the threshold of 330ppi i.e. they are still pixelated/not sharp enough until our eyes cannot see the jagged edges on text/photos.
Phone screens however, have reached well above the threshold. You really cannot tell a difference in sharpness. The difference between iPhone XR against most Android 1080p/2k screens will come down to screen technology (OLED vs LCD), colour accuracy & contrast ratios.

FYI Pocophone is cost $300, please dont compare with that phone and tell the world XR display beat 1080p LCD phone.
This review seems rushed, but why iPhone XR didn't really have good sale?
The only way I'm gonna have any of the iPhones is if they give it for free. People should see other options that are on the market. Apple's just using it's fanbase to increase price and make fool of their customers
I mean just look at other companies and what all things they are giving and just look at Apple they don't even provide a fast charger even phone's costing 1/4 of its price offer fast charger
No dual camera at over 700 bucks Apple just stole the show in innovating new scheme
Lcd displays use more battery
In real life I won't consider buying any of these costly phones instead i would buy 2 phones in the same budget
But it doesn't matter unless iPhone fans do something about it if they want to spend money on this piece of crap it's their wish just watch out for the next price bump if you don't wanna come to your senses
Anonymous, 06 Nov 2018PPI and resolution are 2 different things and yes, humans (including you) cannot see pixelatio... moreIt's not about whether one can see pixelation but rather that higher resolution screens are more detailed and crisp looking. It's fine when you're coming from a similar display but once you put it next to something with higher resolution the difference is quite apparent. It's the same with TVs, people can't see any pixels looking at a 1080p TV from from few meters away, but put a 4k TV next to it and you'll see the difference

Tbh they have a whole year to sell through so will have to wait and see. The phone has allot of positives but I just do not like the screen having tried it a few times in store. Should of been amoled aswell

Considering Apple allegedly already stopped production of the phone due to lacklustre early sales it does seem like the reality distortion field is failing. This phone is not a 4.5 star phone, not a 4 star phone. It's over-priced hype and consumers seems to have woken up.
