Anonymous, 05 Nov 2018In between the higher priced and older models the XR is going to be a tough sell. No factory ... moreIt's factory unlocked. I bought two on the first day available, took out the SIM, and use with Google Fi.
This phone can't do 95% of what xs do it has less ram and storage the display is far better in iphone xs ( only hd display and no super amoled ) battery and design is better in xs there is no 3d touch nor secondary camera (for wich many people would prefer the iphone x even if the quality is better in xr )
And this phone is not too cheaper in comparaison of xs
Iphone x make more sense that xr or you can buy samsung note 9 or huawei mate 20 pro for less price then xr
In between the higher priced and older models the XR is going to be a tough sell. No factory unlocked model available.
apple are deceiving their customer indeed, next time they will sell the XS for $2000 while selling the XR for 1000$ and telling that they want everyone to experience their product thats why theres a cheaper and affordable $1000 iphone lol
Dave Granger, 23 Oct 2018As someone who always skips straight to the battery score, I'm somewhat miffed.its apple... so the battery score is..
1m from a wall socket, at least 3-4 times a day
Are you sure it is nvme storage type across all options? I doubt it is nvme on 64gb one. Probably it is eMMC.
For all possible hater.
Switch to android.
And for those who must have this phone get OPPO.
Same looking device less buggy OS and faster charging with bigger battery and specs.
Thanks for reading.
The Xs is well worth the higher price. Its also better to get a used X than a new Xr, its cheper and better in all ways. I have Xs, Xs Max and X and i honestly cannot tell the difference, even FaceID is as fast and seamless on the X.
I predict a used Xr will drop between 350 and 400 buck in value over the next year, the Xs will drop max 350, so in cost of ownership the Xs will be the winner and the smartest buy for those who care about their economy.
Kingslayer, 05 Nov 2018If it had two cameras and higher display, it would be the XS and cost $250 more.
You need t... moreHonestly I think that XS could cost as much as XR costs (some will say even that's too much) but anyways.
It is already compromised on built quality since it's aluminum.
Screen is already compromised since it's not an OLED but, downgrading pixel density aswell is too much I think.
Camera - no second camera...
People wlling to pay anything get charged are exactly reason why prices go up so sharp.
Tell me difference between XS and X? Well... A12 chipset. And X is now much more affordable than year ago if you can find it on stock somewhere since they discontinued it (geez, everyone must wonder why)...

alski10, 05 Nov 2018I thought you needed at least a decent gpu for VR ?
How many people actually use VR btw ? Not much, I personally don't use it, but it's a shame that a phone in such price range doesn't support it.
XR is certainly an excellent phone with great performance, just it doesn't quite match it's price tag.

You need to be realistic at phones that need to cut corners. It's like the $300 Pocophone. Don't expect flagship camera quality.

I had the phone in my hands yesterday and I was impressed by the build quality and display. It almost convinced me again to buy it and replace my iPhone 6 with it, but when I saw the price I knew for sure this is not worth the money.
If it had 2 cameras and higher resolution display - it would hands down be excellent buy for the price.
Pixel density is just bad here. Images aren't as sharp - and YES, you can see individual pixels when you look closer.
Wanna use it for VR? - well, forget about it, and yes, even Galaxy S7 could be used for VR... and it's now 3 years old phone, which was also cheaper at it's launch date...
Walter C. Dornez, 05 Nov 2018Display Mate is a jokehi we can not say the display mate is a joke because it is a professionally website for analysis the display so cleverly and most of the people look like they are trust these websites to know the results and find best smartphone for they daily usage and work
Wonder why Xiaomi Pocophone F1 not in the performance tests. It should be!
ggggg, 02 Nov 2018pixel 3 is the best display smartphone from displaymate.Get your facts right.Display Mate is a joke
‘Our recommendation would be to invest in the 12W iPad charger, which isn't too expensive but dramatically increases the charging times’. You mean reduces right?
