I’m an Apple person so this phone was an upgrade. The transition to this phone was relatively simple with many similar functions but many streamlined steps or functions. The Face ID was as easy adjustment for unlocking the phone or to login on websites. The data transfer process was relatively straightforward because of updating my earlier phone to the iCloud. The size is a little larger which is more of a positive than negative give. It fits in my jean pockets and my purse with ease. Because it is larger it is easier to do research or operate other apps. The camera really is great with clear, beautiful shots easily managed no matter the light. I’m very happy with my new iPhone XR.
This is a great phone for those who like iPhones, or it's a great choice if you are thinking of switching from Android. Personally I don't need or want more storage space on a phone. I upload my pictures to google photos often so I don't need them stored on my device. This iPhone has pretty much all the same features and functions of the more expensive Xs and Xs Max with a cost savings of $250 minimum. I have had several iPhones but my phone for the past year was a Samsung Galaxy S8. Going from an OLED to an LCD I honestly don't notice a difference on a screen this small, although the screen is quite large for a phone! Also you don't really need the 2nd rear camera since you can still do portrait mode without it and who really takes telephoto pictures with a phone? So far I am extremely happy with this phone and it was super easy to pick up the new gestures since it doesn't have a home button. Also I was skeptical about face ID but so far it has worked really well and hasn't been an issue really.
I went in to upgrade from 6s Plus to 8 Plus, as that was all I could afford at the time. I had been in several times mulling around ideas of what to buy. My 6s Plus was not handling the bigger iOS updates very well, and was on its last leg, and I had just gotten the new Apple Watch 4. When I saw the special they were running on the XR, it was cheaper than the 8 Plus was, so I jumped on it.
I can’t say enough good things about this phone. No more wasted phone area, screen covers entire phone. No more home button, which only took about a day to get used to. I LOVE the face recognition. It is lightning fast, and more than ample space and memory. The camera is only a single camera, but it takes amazing photos. The focus is beautiful. I’ve heard them talk about the display not being fancy like the other 10s, but since I upgraded from a 6, I noticed no difference.
Highly recommend this phone,
I got a 149 dollar credit off the price of this phone. So basically i got this brand new phone for the price of a refurb 600 dollars. At 749 dollars it was still a descent value but at 600 dollars it's a steal. I love this phone even more than i thought i would. The battery life has been great and that is without using any type of power save mode. One of the best purchases i ever made.
This phone is fast, takes good pictures, and just works. The size of the phone is the sweet spot, not too big or too small. The wireless charging is great to have and that is how I charge this at night.
Like all iPhones, this just works and works well. It is made well. Even though it is not a “Pro” phone, it has very many of the features the pros have, simply missing a few that are easy to ignore for the big difference in price. This phone is fast and handles all the daily needs we have come to expect of phones and handles them superbly.

The iPhone Xs may look very familiar to last year's iPhone X, but the replacement for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is anything but a rehash. Here's everything new the iPhone Xr brings to the table.Full Review
A:AnswerTwo things I can mention are: 1.) XS is physically smaller. This may be a plus or minus for you individually. Check them out in person. 2.) XS has 4 wifi antennae, XR has 2. That means stronger wifi catching capability for XS. I don't know if this has a negative effect on battery life. If you are in a place where the wifi you want has been a weak signal, this might be worth any small additional battery drain. (Searching for wifi is a big battery drain, so more antennae might help there.)
A:AnswerHello, based on the ads shown on the website you can get a trade in value from your old device. This is not necessarily a discount, but they use it toward the new phone purchase!
You can follow this link to see the value of your trade in, https://tradein.bestbuy.com/client/#/catalog/
Hope this helps!
A:AnsweriPhone Xr will not fit into a 7 plus case. Dimensions (length, width, height) are not the same for those iPhones. And the camera lens size and placement are also different. So the openings will not line up for lens or ports. You’ll have to spring for a new case if you’re getting one of the new iPhones: Xs, Xs Max, Xr. I highly recommend Otterbox Defender series.
