    Any here considering selling their xs and buying a xr? I’m thinking of selling my xs and buying an xr then taking the rest of the money and putting towards a series 4 watch.

    Go for it. If my iPhone X breaks, I will indeed replace it with an iPhone XR. In your situation, not only would you be getting a nice iPhone, but also an Watch. It’s a no-brainer, in my opinion.

    XS Max here. Not considering it at all. XR is nice, but it would be a downgrade for me. Never mind the inferior screen, 3D Touch is something I use much more than I would have ever imagined.

    Sounds like a win win and if your happy with doing that, mission accomplished.

    I didn't have an XS, but I sold my XS Max and went to the Xr. I don't regret it at all. I miss the OLED display, but that's not a deal breaker. If I were in your situation, I'd sell the XS and grab the Xr + the AWS4.

    What about the camera? I’ve turned off my 3D Touch to see if I can live without it. I’m just not too sure about the camera. I take a bunch of portraits

    Just remember the XR will only do portraits of humans so you can't shoot objects in portrait. Like a dog, a mug, etc.

    It's literally the same camera as all the other iPhones that came out this year. It just doesn't have the zoom lens (meh) or portrait mode for non-humans, but you can get camera apps in the App Store to get portrait mode on non-humans (Halide, for example) so that's a non-issue now.

    I used halide and it was great. I actually find the camera on the XR way better than the Xs because the portrait mode uses the single lens making for a better portrait

    Nope. I'll keep my iPhone XS Max. I don't see a reason to get the R.

    Just had a couple of clients who decided to go with the XR because of the color choice and price point. Their company logo is based on red, so they went with the red XR models and so far all their employees are happy with the choice, sounds like mission accomplished.

    I use the heck out of 3D touch, it's a big deal breaker for me. Hoping to upgrade to the Xs from my 7 next week, can't wait!

    Apparently  is ditching the feature altogether. Or so I’ve read.

    All the models are fine. For some having the two cameras you get with a Plus, XS and Max makes all the difference. Others not.
