Battery is 80% right now. I did charge a little in the late morning so that I'd have 100% juice when I went out to go to a dentist appointment. I also did a bit of playing Pokemon Go, so it's definitely a good sign since I last charged around 4 hours ago. The game tends to be a bit of a battery hog, which I haven't noticed all that much with the XR compared to my iPhone 6s and 7.
I am so impressed with the battery life on this XR. I took the phone off the charger at 6:30 AM on Friday morning and it is 9 AM on Saturday morning and I am sitting at 47% still. The first two battery cycles were rough but it seems like after the third one it is evening out.
Brightness at 40%, WiFi and Bluetooth on connected to Apple Watch.
Right!!! Don’t get me wrong, it’ll last the day. I’ve just never had an experience where I have more than 20% battery life after 12hrs.
Ah! So long as it gets me through the day and back home without having to charge them I’m fine. Thanks for the real world heads up!
Nikki's 100% right. That's something that I had to give up when switching to the X. Are you trying it out or will you possibly replace the Xr with it?
It’s funny. I bought this 64GB (Product) Red XR w/ AppleCare until 11/2020 from Facebook marketplace because I thought it was good deal and would get me back into an iPhone (sold my Androids) with the A12 chip.
I was watching some YouTube and begin to notice how the black bars weren’t as black as an OLED so I went on Swappa and found a great deal on an XS with TSGP installed, extra TSGP, 2 cases and AppleCare until October 2020. Bought it.
While waiting on the seller to ship and using the XR since Sunday, I’m having a bit of buyers remorse and haven’t received the XS yet. lol
The plan has always been to keep the XS once it arrives and list the XR but this is a really good phone. I mean really good.
Sorry for the long post.
