Key features

Compared to the iPhone XS, the iPhone XR was a "downgrade" in a number of ways to lớn hit a lower price point.

That said, there are a number of key features that are the same: an update to iOS 13 means both handsets have sầu the same operating system, and it"s backed up by the powerful A12 Bionic chipphối inside.

The notch contains all the same front-facing cameras và sensors as the iPhone XS, and the dual speakers still face the same way when pumping out sound.

To the untrained eye, or someone not holding the iPhone XR & XS side by side, it might even be hard khổng lồ instantly tell the two apart – but there are a number of key differences that we need to dig inlớn.

A single camera

While the iPhone XR offers the same "standard" lens as the XS, it lacks the telephoto lớn second sensor, so has to bởi vì some fancy tricks with software to compensate.

This means you aren"t able khổng lồ zoom in as far with the XR, as the telepholớn lens offers (relatively) lossless photography at two times zoom, while portrait mode, where the background is blurred out, isn"t as effective sầu.

You can still take a portrait shot & have sầu the background attractively blurred to keep the focus on the subject, but unlượt thích with the iPhone XS, you can’t take pictures of objects and animals in the same way.

This is due to the fact the software can’t identify those subjects as easily from the single sensor, where the additional hardware on the more expensive XS is able to draw on more info.

The Liquid Retimãng cầu screen

Apple is never one khổng lồ shy away from some sale hyperbole, và the iPhone XR comes with a different type of LCD, a screen that"s been designed khổng lồ allow it lớn make this curved, "all-screen" display.

The effect is much like the LCD screens Apple has made before, khổng lồ be honest, as they’ve always been colorful and sharp, but with the "Liquid Retina" display things are supposed to closer lớn the high-kết thúc OLED screen.

We"ll delve more into lớn the unique of the screen later in this review, but it"s one of the key differences you"ll want khổng lồ consider if you"re thinking about going for the less-costly iPhone.

No cảm ứng 3 chiều on the iPhone XR

There’s one way to know if you use a feature on an iPhone, và that’s khổng lồ take it away, và see if you miss it. Anyone coming from a later-series Apple handphối will have had access to 3D Touch, where pressing the screen harder opens menus or activates different features in apps.

This feature has been removed for the iPhone XR, presumably khổng lồ save money – instead you have khổng lồ vị a "long press" to lớn vày the same thing. So if you ever accessed shortcuts by pushing harder on an tiện ích, or opened the torch with a harder prod on the loông xã screen… well, that’s gone.

We didn"t realize how much we used that feature before – and it"s irritating to lớn not have sầu something that feels like a real button to lớn open the camera – but it doesn’t take long lớn get used to the alternative… it just feels a bit less premium.

Chunkier design

The iPhone XR has a thicker kiến thiết, with chunkier bezels around the side of the phone – hold it side by side with an iPhone XS and you’ll feel it’s clearly the cheaper model, with a thicker feel in the hand.

However, looking at it & handling it in isolation you’ll just feel that it’s a smooth, rounded design that apes the popular khung of the iPhone 7 or iPhone 8 – basically, the iPhone XR is the all-screen version of those handsets, bringing a screen the kích thước of those on the iPhone 7 Plus or 8 Plus in a khung factor that’s more akin lớn the smaller models.
