    It's not HUGE but for me, significant.
    In particular, I prefer the screen being WIDER - which makes reading, browsing, watching videos more comfortable.
    Eg reading an ebook on an X/XS was something I never got familiar with. On the XR, it's ok-ish (I still prefer a real ebook reader or tablet, but don't carry one with me all the time).
    Also, the XR supports enlarged display, which I like. It makes icons & text a little bigger, something that the X/XS don't support.

    I was playing around with the XR and noticed that certain apps like Settings allow landscape mode. That's something I miss from my 6 Plus.

    How did you enable landscape mode? It doesn't do that for settings on my XR.

    To enable landscape orientation in certain apps just turn your phone sideways. Make sure you have rotation lock toggled off in Control Center.

    I've been aware of that, thank you. However, the settings app on my XR doesn't go landscape, as claimed by @SprSynJn
    This would be very convenient to have, as certain menu points get truncated in portrait mode.

    It did for the demo unit I used at the store. I’m not sure why it isn’t for yours.

    Resolved. Display was in enlarged mode. Switched back to standard mode and landscape works.

    I suggest making lists or a table of pros and cons for this decision. They’re all great products but you have 1 vs two cameras, physical size, screen type and battery life. It would also apply to one making the XS vs XR decision. For X you also have future proof to consider.
