    I’ll keep it short

    I was upgrading from a 6s and doing all the research I could. I even almost switched for no good reason because I believe it makes you better to try other tech at least once. I’ve done it before. Ok, I’m no power user. Hence, why I went with the XR. The upgrade in screen size and camera are noticeable and appreciated. I’m not one to fret over too much. The screen does have some bezels too it, but for some reason I appreciate it. The edge to edge screen was never a driving force for me. If you like a bigger phone, or have bigger hands this is a good place to start. I never realized how much the 6s was cramping my hand because it was pretty small. I still enjoyed how it fit in any pocket so that’s no knock on that great phone. Lastly, go test it. Don’t be lazy and buy at home with one click and go write a review when you realize it’s not for you, somehow. I love the feel of it. I got the red because I liked how it looked and it is for a good cause. I’m very very impressed thus far. The screen is fantastic I don’t care who you are. The battery is phenomenal. No joke. My poor 6s had to charge like six times a day. So far, not once in a day. Go TEST before you buy. I found out the extra money the other models where, was not worth it to me. I love my new phone. And I hope this helps you. FYI. Always spring for more memory if you buy phones for camera. The 64gb is a joke these days.

    Great Phone for those who don't want to spend $$$

    I originally went to BestBuy to purchase the Iphone X 64 GB but when i thought about it and talked it over with one of the employees, I realized that I could get last year's phone, Iphone XR in 128GB for $1 more than the IPhone XR 64 GB. I've not even had it for a week but I love it. For my hand size(small) it's big for me, so that I generally need two hands to operate it, but I have a pop socket from my other phone so that helps hold it, and I got a case, screen protector, AppleCare+, and a wireless charger all on sale(except the insurance). I'm paying $24.99/month right now and I think that this is a great deal especially when I was thinking about the Iphone X originally. I love FaceID, and Ive gotten used to the gestures fairly quickly. I still want to swipe up from the bottom for the control center. Recommend trying this phone out in a store first. Hold it, play with it, and see how it fits your hand. My hands are small but I wanted a bigger screen with a bigger capacity but I wasn't willing to spend more money to get the smaller Iphone XS. So far so good.... On an odd note, when I turned it upside down, outside of it's case, I heard swishing around of liquid. not sure if that was the battery or what but it sounded weird.... Battery lasts all day and then some....took it off the charger at 5AM and didnt charge it again until midnight. used it to watch videos and listen to music mostly over wi-fi in low power mode.

    Perfect phone for me

    The iPhone XR is by far the best iPhone that I have owned (and I have owned/purchased for a family member every version since the beginning of the iPhone). I use my phone daily for work and exercise. This phone is fast and has an amazing battery life. This is important to me as I use my phone to track my Strava activity, which can include 4 hour bike rides and 8 hour hikes. This phone runs these applications while playing music and leaves me battery life to spare at the end of the day. The sound quality of the actual phone call is superb. I appreciated that I had a choice in how much memory I could purchase as I only need 128 GB. Even though I love "all things Apple", I had a hard time justifying paying over $1100 for my phone. Other than a better camera, I do not feel like I had to compromise on any other features. Incidentally, I feel like the camera on this phone is excellent. Overall, I have never been happier with my iPhone and I have not had any glitches or issues. This is a beautiful and functional phone and I appreciate that Apple made it more affordable than their other high end iPhone Xs.

    Best phone for the dollar

    Apple currently has a wide range of iPhone options. From the relatively cheap seven to the eye popping expensive XS max plus. The XR is positioned to fill the gap between with an LCD display that is as big as an iPhone 7/8Plus but missing the fancy camera tricks and OLED screen of the XS models. To me, the cost savings are well worth the trade off. The XR is sleek, fast, packed with technology, has a battery that lasts forever, and actually comes in several colors that can be shown off through any number of clear cases (see Spigen). If you’re doing nothing but looking at the price tag, consider this: you won’t need to ‘upgrade’ the XR for years. If Apple is feeling the pinch from declining phone sales as everyone else is, it is because their phone’s expected service life, which is supported by regular iOS updates, is getting longer and longer. This is why I believe that the when considering technology, design, features, and expected service life the XR is THE best bang for your bucks.

    An Amazing Phone

    I have used higher end smartphones since 2012 and I am using an iPhone XS Max as my primary phone. I bought this iPhone XR for my dad, and I have used it for a couple days before handing it to my dad. I would say this is an amazing phone because of the smoothness of iOS, great cameras and battery life. Even though the LCD screen on XR is not as good as the OLED screen on my XS Max, I would say you will be ok with that unless you have other higher phones in hands. My dad is also loving his new phone too even though he needed time to get use to iOS. If you are not a hard core smartphone user like me, I highly suggest this phone over Xs. In addition, the Best Buy online tool made my purchase easy! It has a much better web interface than AT&T, which is carrier I am on.

    My Favorite iPhone of all time

    I've owned an iPhone since the first one was released many years ago. The XR is my favorite so far. The screen size is perfect with amazing resolution. The facial recognition works instantaneously and flawlessly. The removal of the home button makes the screen bigger and nicer to look at. I love the screen clarity and the camera. The A12 chip is amazingly fast. I appreciate the fact that I could purchase the exact amount of memory that I needed and appreciate the choice of multiple colors. The battery life on this phone is simply amazing. I mountain bike with the GPS Strava app running for several hours while I stream music, text, take pictures, and make phone calls. All this and the battery lasts forever. This is a home run for Apple! I love this phone.

    iPhone XR 128GB Blue

    Having been a long time Galaxy user (S3, S5 and S 7) I did not care for the S8 or S9. The only Apple product I own prior to the iPhone XR was my trusty iPod Nano. It took a little time to get use to the iOS compared to having been with Andriod for a long time. The phone performs great, is very user friendly and I cannot emphasize enough about the battery life. My S7 was having trouble staying charged for 4 hours even with limited use. I know the phone was aging along with the battery. I can charge my iPhone XR and use it for two days without having to recharge. I use my phone several times throughout the day. To me it was worth the upgrade. I did consider the iPhone 8 which is slightly smaller and had the physical home button. I would not go with a phone any larger as I would have a brick in my uniform pants.

    I use my phones until they die and/or barely work or become unable to update, lol. My iphone6S completely DIED unexpectedly, as in unresponsive, dead black screen, confirmed at apple store, dead. Couldn’t even trade it in. I was going to settle for an iphone8, because I was certain I’d hate not having that home button, but then saw the irresistible sale price on the iphoneXR at Best Buy, for $150 off, plus I read the rave reviews about the XR having a great battery life. After 3 weeks of using the XR I’m used to no home button, although I do miss that thumbprint ID, but having a phone that lasts ALLLLL DAYYYY and night on one charge is GREAT! For me, that is the best feature of the iphoneXR, and I’m happy that I bought it.

    Have followed I-phone through every other new generation now. I’m sold on ease of use, Great Cameras, and ease of use over all. Guys at Best Buy were great. Made for a quick and easy upgrade. The only con so far was I purchased this new one without handeling it. I didn’t get the + on previous models before because I just don’t need a massive screen. Don’t need or want a two handed typing set up. This version at the smaller screen size is just bigger. Yes resolution is awesome. Video playback is great. But cramping thumb and more phone drops adjusting to screen size just isn’t what I wanted. Guess I should have stuck with the 8s. Again the 4 star was just because I was unaware of sub $800 iPhone option with the better camera/stuff with the same ol 6-8 dimensions

    Great iPhone

    This is a great phone for people who must have a new iPhone over an Android or older iPhone model. Even though it has a sub-1080p resolution LCD, the screen resolution, color accuracy, and brightness are great and will probably make you question the value of purchasing an OLED screen model. The camera’s photo quality is great, and will likewise make you question the value of a dual-lens phone. A warning: This is a big phone. If the previous iPhone Plus models were too big for you, then this phone will probably be too big, as well; however, the reduced bezels allow for an even larger screen than previous Plus models. Also, if you’ve become accustomed to Force Touch, be aware that it is not included with this phone, but is present on both the iPhone XS and XS Max.

    Battery Life is Great

    I love the battery life on this phone. I don't think I've ever seen my battery level go lower than 60%. BUT one thing I did notice when I first got it is that this darn phone is slippery! The sides and rear surfaces are so smooth that it sometimes slides as you hold it in your hand and it ever so slowly slides off of anything you place it on. Apparently, many others have had similar "sliding phone" issues. A case fixed that problem for me but it really is a design issue that should be addressed. (Keep in mind that you'll need a case that allows wireless charging for the QI charger.) The smooth surfaces look beautiful but in the real world they're not very practical.

    I like the large screen very much, can actually watch video on it without too much strain on the eyes. I lake the face ID. I thought I will hate it, but it actually works better than touch ID and save time with the apps login. The battery life was very good so far - still at 70% by the end of the day. I do not like the bulkiness - this is the only drawback so far. I keep it in my pocket and I can feel it there most of the time. It's definitely much heavier then my 6s that I traded in. Buy I like it when I take it out of my pocket and use it.

    Product is good, service experience was poor

    I bought the XR in the Novi Michigan store during thanksgiving this year, it has been close a month since I started using the phone, pros are the battery life, processor speed, camera features and quality. In terms of cons, it does take a few days to get used to it if you are used to previous models as I was. While the product was good, the service experience was horrible, partly because of the crowd. It took me one hour to check out as the sales consultant had to call my telecom provider. I felt the sales consultant was short of experience and had to rely on one of his more experienced colleagues. Best Buy could have done a better there

    Traded in my iPhone 7 for this Xr. Got a great trade in price from BestBuy too. Glad I shopped there first. Compared all three new phones and liked the size of this one the best. Bigger than my iPhone 7, but not as big as the Plus. Still fits in my shirt pocket. Didn't get the two back cameras, but that's OK. The camera on this one is fantastic too. Also much better price. Really like the face recognition feature and the 'tap to open' feature. Still learning new tricks with it since I've had it less than 2 weeks, but I love the phone.

    I bought this phone with 256GB of storage space mainly because I take lots of photos and videos and needed the extra strorage space. The other reason I bought it is because I like the camera, it takes nice quality photos and also record video in 4K. It serves as a great camera and as a phone at the same time. It’s lightweight and I haven’t had any issues with using it in making/receiving calls, texting or browsing the internet with it. I would highly recommend this phone to anyone looking for a budget phone and won’t have to spend over a thousand bucks like other high end phones out there.

    I upgraded from an iPhone 6s to the XR and am overall satisfied so far. I am still adjusting to the no home button and larger size of the phone, however the full size screen and larger dimensions do make it easier to navigate from different screens. The array of colors the XR comes in also make the phone very vibrant and exciting. Battery life is significantly stronger than my last iPhone and the wireless charging is definitely an option to consider if battery life is something you highly preference.

    I won't dive into the Android vs Apple debate because there are enough reviews and videos that one can find beating that subject to death. Just know that this phone is a pure Apple product with a minor amount of cut corners compared to the flagships. The colors are absolutely beautiful, especially the coral and red. This is a great "value" iPhone, and should be able to last multiple years thanks to iPhone holding their values for so long.

    I was an android user for a long time but android wasn’t cutting it for me anymore so I decided to get an iPhone. This iPhone is the best decision I ever made. This phone also fits my budget much better than some of these other phones. I get service more than the android did and I like how it’s a nice size and it runs like silk. There’s not really anything bad to say about this phone. I’m still learning this phone and I’ve only had it for about a month.

    I've just purchased this iPhone XR... actually 3 of them. The build quality is great. The performance is great. It has all the great features of the XS that you'd want at less price. Yeah it doesn't have the AMOLED display but honestly if you're upgrading from an older device that still uses the LCD panel you will notice it is way better. I have to recommend this product. Do keep in mind that as of today you'll need to run updates to iOS

    I got my wife this phone because she wanted the blue one over a XS. I got the XS Max and I love it, but the because of the cost of the XR, and the fact that (outside of the screen being a lower resolution and LCD instead of OLED, and not having the second camera for true 2X zoom) its a less expensive phone with the same features and nearly the same size for $350 less than mine... Apple knocked it out of the park with this one
