    Went from 8+ to black XR 128GB. T-Mobile offered $390 back in credits without additional line requirement, so getting it for 1/2 off. Wanted best battery life, more screen, low band LTE, space to put all iTunes music on it, and to ditch the button.

    Delivering on Monday.

    I find it odd that Apple isn’t making cases for the xr. I wound up getting the X. I contemplated the Xr And would have been really bummed to not be able to put an Apple case on it.

    That is odd, though there must be plenty of 3rd party cases.

    Wow...I don’t understand why they would do that.

    Those that bought a XR think the screen is fine, those that bought a XS/Max think it's ordinary. I think some people need to get their eyes checked again. I have reading glasses only.
    My wife has a 8 plus which is better than XR supposedly and against my XS Max looks average to me.
    Also
    Portrait only works on people.
    No 2 x zoom
    No 3d touch
    3 gb ram
    Bezels are back

    If you don't care about all those all its a great budget iPhone, probably suited to kids and women coming from 6/7/8 that want colours and new UI.

    Why would it not be suited for men?

    Well obviously it is, but i bet if you looked at no's more kids and ladies would buy as better choice of colours over the other models.

    I'd say go look at it. This Tweet is by a YouTuber who is very critical about phone displays: "Yeah, #iPhoneXR pixel density is a non-issue. If you had and enjoyed the iPhone 8 it’s the same ppi. And side by side with my XS I have to hold it close to my face to tell. I can definitely tell but no one will care. Gorgeous, vibrant display. So much bezel though. Boxed in."

    This comment seems to be consistent among all reviews I've seen, that the resolution is a non-issue -- that it is a very good looking display.
    You can tell people till you blue in the face and they won’t care no matter how much proof you show them. I’m surprised that even as some say for an “inferior iPhone” the camera in self portrait is slightly better then that of the Xs(Max). I mean the Xr takes portrait photos of anything while the Xs(Max) only take human faces. Hmmmmmmm

    I don’t doubt that the numerous choice of colors may be more attractive to ladies and kids. I was unable to see why men wouldn’t want an iPhone XR. That’s all. The iPhone XR is still a gorgeous, quality built, well-spec’d iPhone that can run any app and game like all of the other iPhone models. Know what I mean?

    Well, I was watching Tim Cook’s Address to the EU and noticed that he was rockin’ a blue XR, which cemented my feelings that the XR would be the great phone that it is and I made the appropriate choice for me.

    Nope. Makes perfect sense. Kids and females will buy more XRs than grown men. Call it what you want but it’s true. Just like the 5c. I didn’t know any men with a 5c. It was all teenage girls and women.

    I would have gotten an iPhone 5C if it would have had the same A7 processor as the iPhone 5S, because I could still be using it today with iOS 12.

    Only if the guts didn’t fall out of the case like most of them did. That was the worst built iPhone ever.

    I've owned both the X and the Max and one too small and one too big and heavy took a look at the XR and it looks like a winner to me still trying to dec ide between the pixel 3 xl and the XR.

    Update I picked up a black XR 128 gb tonight very nice device and the size is just right. I am not a screen freak and really can’t tell the difference from the x and the xr.

    No chance, ever, I have just bought a XS and it is too big to operate with one hand(and they’re XL hands !) any bigger and I might as well use my iPad !!

    After buying and returning the XS, I picked up a black XR yesterday. I've found that I actually prefer the bigger bezels of the XR because it makes it easier to swipe from the top and bottom with the Spigen Neo Hybrid case that I put on all of my phones. While I didn't think I wanted a phone this big, I'm quickly growing accustomed to it after using the 8, XS, and Pixel 3 all within the last month or so. The killer battery life is just icing on the cake.

    I guess Jonathan Morrison got tired of all the Fandroids claiming their $200 cheap Android phones had a better screen than the Xr. In response, he created a test for people to compare the new Pocophone display with the iPhone Xr:

    My husband and I upgraded from our beloved 6S Pluses. I was going to get an XR but my hubs convinced me to get an XS Max because he knew that the Max was my first choice. He got the XR. I played around with the XR in the store and it is a great phone. I don’t get the backlash that it is receiving.
