    There are a lot of crickets on this forum. Anybody with me and getting an Xr? 128gb white for me. Did everyone else jump on the Xs(Max) bandwagon? I bought the xs max but I just don’t get along with OLED and the size was a bit much for me.

    What do you mean when you say you don’t get along with OLED?

    It’s just a personal preference thing. I could never get an X that had an even display. Not talking about blue shift, but I had pink spots around the screen on the couple of different models I tried. My 8plus was the best phone screen I have ever used. The XsMax I had was terribly yellow and the blue shift on that phone was terrible. Which I know is a characteristic of OLED I just never really encountered it in the few OLED android phones I have used over the years.

    I have no plans to upgrade this time around from my current iPhone X. Having said that, if I somehow were to damage it, I would consider buying an iPhone XR even though I don’t prefer its dimensions.

    No its a downgrade from XS Max, unless you suffer from PMW would be the only reason, it's more suited to those going from a 6/7/8, even v a 8 plus could be debatable.

    I am getting the XR specifically for the advanced color accuracy of the LCD screen. The only thing I will regret is no 3D Touch.

    I'm getting the XR in red, 128GB. I preordered yesterday morning sometime after 9 am. I never planned on waiting until 3:01 am because I knew I could just wait until getting up the next morning. I kept debating on whether to go with 128GB or 256, and ultimately, 128 won out.

    I went the XS Max route but the XR was second on the list with regard to what looked most intriguing during the announcement.

    Nope. I decided to go with the Xs Max. I'm very pleased with my decision.

    Got an iPhone Xs max, but thinking of picking up an Xr after it launches.

    I’m considering it if Verizon makes them half off on Black Friday. If not I’ll probably go just standard 8.

    No. Got an XS Max on launch and not interested in an inferior iPhone.

    I considering getting an XR but I’m very happy with the XS Max. That said I still find the XR a very interesting device and I look forward to seeing it in person.

    No. Couldn’t imagine going back to a 2010 screen pixels per inch of 326.

    iJustine did a great review using the coral color. It looks great but still my plus cost more. I am staying with my 8+. I don’t want a higher bill. Trying to get my devices paid off

    You do realize that is the same PPI as the iPhone 8? From all reports, it is a very good looking screen and the average person could care less about specs.

    There are people who get eye strain and headaches from OLED screens, due to the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). So some will buy the Xr over the Xs so they don't get the eye strain and headaches they'd get with an Xs/Max.

    Yes I do. Which is the same PPI for the past 8+years on at least 1 iPhone which for this day in age isn’t good. Why couldn’t they do the same PPI as the 8 plus? That is much sharper. What to save 5 or $10 on profit?

    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.
