    Yes. The XR display is good, not great. The XS and Max are great.
    It's same as the 8 just bigger, after the Max the 8 has been my favourite iPhone, should of kept it.

    I had the 8+ before the Max. It was my favorite iPhone ever and I’ve had them all.

    Having the same PPI on a bigger screen actually makes the bigger screen inferior to the smaller screen.

    To achieve the same ppi means having to add pixels. If the same number of pixels was used between both displays then the XR would have a lower ppi. So they have the same ppi and therefore the same resolution.

    Exactly that’s why the 8 was 720p and the Xr is a weird 800-900p. Can’t remember off the top of my head.

    They’re all something like 828p. Even the 8. That’s why apps like YouTube let you select 1080p, it scales it down to the screens full resolution, but it’s still higher quality than 720p.

    “They’re all”?? Only 2 recent iPhones have 326ppi. The 8 and XR. The 8+ has 401ppi and its screen is noticeably better than the 8. If Apple had used a 401ppi screen in the XR this entire screen debate would’ve been avoided.

    I wonder how many people notice the difference between the 401ppi vs the 326ppi in a way that it would affect their purchasing decision. I also wonder if the lower ppi screen was a significant cost saver for Apple. ?? Some in the market for the Xr will prolly gladly choose it’s different specs versus the higher costs alternatives but I’ve read that the Xr screen is quite good to the eye.

    iPhone from 4-8 = 326PPI
    XR = 326PPI

    Says it all really.

    I wonder how many that have an Xr have complaints about the screen quality. It may be different on paper than the other X phones but from what I’ve seen folks love it. If my Max had a 326ppi display I doubt I’d enjoy the device any less. In fact, with an LCD display like the Xr wouldn’t there be less chance, at least theoretically, of screen burn-in?

    Having both the X and and XR, I notice a difference coming from the X. I think the display looks amazing for an lcd display though. What I noticed is the blacks aren’t as black and when tilting the XR the screen dims a lot. When you tilt an OLED screen it maintains the same brightness. I am still trying to decide if I am keeping the XR, leaning towards just keeping my X for many reasons although I love the screen size of the XR.

    I have the XR and had the chance to compare in person against the X, and XS Max at one of the local Targets. The XS Max, to me looked fake and artificial with crispness and shadows, too bright and hard on my eyes. My XR looked smooth and natural and easier on my eyes. Just my opinion.

    Very interesting. I’ve never noticed my XS M display looking fake to me. Just the opposite, in fact. I really must see an Xr this week.

    It looked good, just something that would drive me nuts after a while. I am holding out for MicroLED. It is what Apple is using on the watches.

    Anyone that says they can't tell the difference needs to get a eye check, or are just blinded by the price difference.

    I wouldn’t go that far. Some people simply are not that much shock and awed by OLED.

    It doesn't bother me at all. The screen is nice enough for me. Again, I don't have the X or any Xs series phone to compare it to but on it's own, it's fine.

    Just got done returning an employees XS Max due to the signal/modem issues that made the phone worthless. He decided to get the XR since those haven't been having any issues. I have the X and between the 3 devices, its very difficult for me to see the difference of screens in day to day apps. Videos is where I can tell the difference but the XR still looks very nice. If I was wanting to get one of the new phones it would without a doubt be the XR. Extremely disappointed in the XS series.
