    XR starts at $749 with all of the same features as the XS/Max. Does this make your decision harder or is the XR not even an option?

    Wouldn’t be an option for me. After experiencing the quality of the X screen I couldn’t go back to LCD

    I'd have to compare side by side. But I want the 6.5" screen for the size mostly.

    An LCD screen wouldn’t bother me at all, and if I was considering an upgrade, I’d really consider the XR, but I prefer the size of the current iPhone X.

    I would probably get the XR if it had the same RAM as the XS and Max. It doesn’t tho.

    Wouldn’t be the deal breaker for me but you are also loosing the dual camera.

    The LCD doesn’t bother me much. I, honestly, don’t stare at my device as much as I use to. I got rid of social media about a year ago & my devices are usually on DND lol. If it was smaller & I was in the market, I’d probably consider it.

    RAM doesn’t really matter to me. Yes, I test apps on my devices but I don’t have any issues with slowness.

    Not having dual cameras isn’t a deal breaker either. I’m interested to see what the pics look like side by side.

    Did Apple say how much RAM the Xr has?

    I haven’t heard a number just that it will have less than the other 2. My guess is the XR will have 3gb and the other two will have 4gb. Although they may stick with 2 and 3.

    I totally agree. With the discontinuation of the X, any holdouts due to pricing will still avoid the XS and the MAX.

    Currently using the original Apple Watch and an iPhone 8+. Nothing wrong with the 8+, but the large bezels and screen to body ratio are becoming more apparent now with the 2nd generation X models launch. The Apple Watch 4 looks compelling, and really like the iOS and Watch OS combination. So, for me a combined upgrade would be an Xr 256GB and Apple Watch 4. 8+ would go into reserve backup duty for me and the kids.

    So an Xr 256GB at $899 and the Apple Watch 4 Nike + Space Gray with GPS would be $429 for a total $1328. An Xs Max 256GB at $1149 and same watch at $429 would be $1578. Going to an Xs Max 512GB and same watch would be $1349 plus $429 for $1778.

    The above is without Apple Care (and taxes) for less addition, but I would get it for each device, further increasing cost. The smaller Xs is probably great, but too small for someone who wears glasses.

    Will think about this some more. I don't need to do anything at the moment, and could likely get by for another year with what I have now. Right now the Xr 256GB and Apple Watch 4 seems to be the best option. Or, I may go back to the Note series and use my Fitbit Ionic, and just spend the $1249 for a 512GB Note 9 - if I decide to do anything.

    I have an X (same size as the Xs) and wear glasses. The screen is just fine. It’s not small at all. I also have an 8 that I carry daily and although there’s a huge difference, the 8 still doesn’t seem that small.

    Thanks, that's a good perspective to hear about. Without glasses on, its difficult to see the screen on the 8+ at normal font size.
    Having a slightly more pocket-able device would be a bonus. I'll add an Xs to the potential list.

    You’re welcome I enjoy the smaller size of the X without sacrificing too much screen real estate. From the looks of it, the XR doesn’t seem to be that much larger, but we’ll have to wait and see.

    Apple got the line up wrong. They should have made the Xs 5.8 inch the $749 phone with the new chip but same specs as the X. The XR the $999 with all the colors and the same specs as the XS max and the XS max the $1099 phone. I don’t get them making a bigger phone but with inferior specs.

    With that logic, the iPhone 8 Plus should have had a higher cost than the iPhone X last year.

    It’s more the low resolution that puts me off. 720p on a 6.1 inch display is not what I want.

    Exactly. The 6.5 Xs Max OLED screen definitely makes a difference.

    I thought about it and couldn’t do it. What’s the point of being able to take High-quality photos and record 4K video if you can even take advantage of it on your screen that you’re looking at it all on . And I do take a lot of photos & record videos with my phone, not to mention my phone is the main point of media consumption for me as I’m on the go a lot. It is more convenient and easier for me to do that on my phone with larger and good Quality screen versus pulling out my laptop and I’m not a big fan of tablets So for my That lower screen is a no go. Not to mention I feel like got robbed a little bit with the XS Max on the price (I like the phone but still) and given that I use android phones also For my personal life there are too many solid options for me to be able to pay 75for fun with that screen resolution and be able to justify to myself saying I got a budget version of anything that said if you’re hard-core into the apple ecosystem don’t care about the screen at all and need to upgrade your phone and aren’t going anywhere I think that’s probably your best bet if you can’t afford to drop $1000-$1200 on the phone
