Apple has finally unveiled it’s new iPhones on September 12. Tim Cook and a few other Apple higher-ups announced the Apple Watch 4 and three new iPhones — the XS, XS Max and XR. But here are four reasons why you should ignore the rest iPhones and buy iPhone XR.
1. It’s Cheap
IPhone XR is an iPhone for all unlike the XS and XS Max. Starting at $749, the XR is by far the most affordable model. It can rise to $899 if you buy the 256GB storage model, but the sweet spot is the $799 128GB model.
2. No Much Difference From The XS and XS Max
Just like the iPhone XS and XS Max, iPhone XR will ship with the new A12 Bionic chip. That is great news. And You’re still getting the iPhone X-style screen, FaceID, wireless charging, water and dust proofing just like the iPhone XS.
The shortcomings are only in the screen quality—LCD not OLED—and the single camera lens. Just keep in mind the single camera is the same as the iPhone XS and XS Max.
3. Variety of Colors
iPhone XR is available in multiple colors. The range is great; pick from black, white, blue, yellow, coral and Product Red. Amazingly, Apple even managed to bite its tongue and steer clear of ridiculous names such as “Space Gray.” Black is black, and blue is blue. Coral gets a pass, you could call it pink, but coral is a thing as well.
4. Durable Battery
It’s true that Tim Cook did not make a big deal about this at the event. But in truth, the iPhone XR have the longest battery life of the three phones. It exceeds the iPhone XS in every category by between one and five hours of life. That includes talk time, internet use, video playback and audio playback.
And you may be surprise to know also that the XR also matches or exceeds the XS Max in every category. Talk time and audio playback is the same, but the XR can get an extra two hours of internet use and one extra hour of video.
We know that iPhone XS and XS Max have their own specialty. Yes, OLED looks better and the camera takes better snaps. And if you have the money, go for it. But you can buy iPhone XR too because it is poised to become the smartphone of the everyday iOS person soon.
Just in case you are going to buy iPhone XR, don’t forget to tell us your experience of using it.
