If you're buying a new iPhone, this should be your starting point.

The iPhone XR has a battery that lasts longer and offers a better price, especially in the years since it's come out.

  • A great value option
Cons
  • Portrait camera mode doesn't impress
  • Some apps still not fully optimized
  • Lower-res screen

Apple’s iPhone XS and XS Max are its flagship smartphones that do everything and anything. The iPhone XR is more interesting, because it looks futuristic like its siblings, but it’s cheaper, and more stylish. It comes in a range of colors like blue, red, coral, and yellow, and we can’t stop staring.

Pros
  • Gorgeous, colorful design
  • Day-long battery life
  • Great performance
  • Strong camera
  • Easy to use software
Cons
  • Screen resolution could be higher
  • Portrait Mode limited to people

The iPhone XR delivers fast performance, great cameras and longer battery life than other flagship phones, all in a colorful and affordable package.

Pros
  • Fast performance
  • Very long battery life
  • Big and colorful LCD
  • Great flagship value
Cons
  • No optical zoom
  • Portrait mode works only with people

Pros
  • Very affordable
  • Large 6.1-inch display
  • Still a good camera
  • A12 Bionic processor delivers good power
  • Great colour options
  • Wireless charging
  • IP67 weather/dust sealing
Cons
  • LCD display can't beat OLED on more expensive iPhones
  • No mobile HDR
  • Not as good as other iPhone camera setups

The iPhone XR is now an even better buy as it has received a price-cut after the iPhone 11s release. Here is all you need to know.

Pros
  • Great battery life
  • XS features for less money
  • Fantastic performance
  • Very capable camera
Cons
  • No fast charger included
  • Will be too large for some

Apple switched up release strategies a bit in 2018 with the two high end $1,000+ models released initially, followed by one priced $250 to $350 less. The iPhone XR arrives in six color options and honestly it may be the best option for the masses.

Pros
  • Excellent photo quality
  • Cool color options
  • Long battery life
  • Loud stereo speakers
  • Wireless charging support
Cons
  • Poor cellular reception in weak signal areas
  • Portrait mode limited to people

The new lower-priced iPhone XR is a good buy, as long as you don’t mind making a few compromises.

Cheaper than Apple’s OLED iPhones, but the XR still delivers a picture and sound performance to be proud of

Pros
  • Entertaining, musical sound
  • Natural picture
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • OLED rivals are punchier
  • Headphone dongle is extra

Most people know of me as an “Android guy,” which is something I’ve always worn as a badge of honor. And while I wrote about my time with the iPhone 8 earlier this year, I decided to try something new with the release of the XR: I used it as my main phone.

Pros
  • Excellent build quality
  • The gesture navigation is fantastic
  • Incredible battery life
  • Premium experience at a fraction of the cost
Cons
  • The camera is only "good enough"
  • The LCD display isn't as rich as OLED
  • Siri is still Siri
  • Seriously though I'm struggling to think of other cons, this is a really good phone

Apple iPhone XR: The iPhone XR is not the best iPhone, but it’s nearly as good as the Xs and it’s far, far cheaper

Pros
  • Cheaper than the iPhone Xs
  • Outstanding camera
  • Industry leading mobile performance
Cons
  • No optical zoom
  • Better battery life but still not amazing

Apple iPhone XR review by technology experts. The iPhone XR might not be Apple's flagship iPhone, but it's still Apple's best value device.
