    BEST iPhone I've ever owned

    Prior to the iPhone XR, my favorite all time cell phone was the iPhone 5s. The 5s is still in full OS12 status with Apple and was an out-of-this-world device for me. I got excited about the coming of the iPhone 6 and 6s a few years back and unfortunately let myself get talked into buying a horrible LG G4 product. Nearly two years later I purchased the iPhone 7 plus - a superb device that thankfully got me back into the iPhone eco system. The 7 plus was highly serviceable and did everything I wanted it to do - and then some. It was just a little larger than I like a phone to be and clumsy in the hand at times. But with a great delight and a super Best Buy deal, I purchased the iPhone XR around Christmas time. I had to learn the new gestures, which I did fear a little, but had it down within an hour. I have to say, three things blew me away: 1) the camera. It was an amazing upgrade over the camera on the 7 plus; 2) the phones battery. I keep trying to to run this battery out and can't do it! Well, I've come around 10 percent but I can tell you the battery is as good as advertised and by far the best battery I've had in a cell phone. 3) the screen. It is a beautiful display on this phone. Don't feel that because it's not OLED it's not good. Actually, the display is great and far better than any I've ever had on a phone. A couple of more things to note: my bill came down from $32 a month to $16 with Sprint. All that for the best cell phone by far I've ever owned. Also, unlike the XS and X Max, you get 64, 128, and 256 GB. I am a 128 GB guy and loved that it was available. I bought product red which mostly hides behind an excellent Tech 21 case. This case has a slide that covers and protects the lens and a carry case if you choose the use it. A perfect companion for this phone. In the end, I cannot recommend the iPhone XR enough. I thought this phone would take off as it is a great deal from Apple for all that it offers. I do remember the 7 plus got off to a slow start years back, but once people warmed up to it, it became a top seller. Perhaps the best days for the XR are ahead for it.

    Bigger battery without sacrificing photos

    I was never totally sold on my 7 0plus, so I upgraded to the Galaxy 10 plus. What a piece of crap with sucky battery life, over complicated cameras, and ads. I was constantly trying to overcome glitches, too. The finger scan deal nor the facial recognition ever worked. So, I went back to Best Buy, said a prayer, and bought my X(r). Best phone ever! A tad smaller than my 7plus but I don’t miss the size because the button is gone and the screen size is about the same. The battery life is outstanding! I take hundreds of videos clips and pics of my kids’ sporting events and the battery life just plugs along. There are days that I don’t even have to charge my phone! The camera remains straight forward and the pics are better than the 7plus despite losing a camera. The pics on this camera are about 800 times better than the Galaxy 10plus, too. The facial is great but sometimes I am frustrated because it isn’t an easy swipe as I am driving or getting ready in the morning. Siri needs improvement, she is a bit stubborn at times and refuses to work. But it doesn’t bug me too much because I have teenagers at home, I am used to the attitude. Oh. Btw, the red color is gorgeous, too!!

    A nice upgrade from an iPhone 6S

    Let me start by saying I’ve had a 16 GB iPhone 6s for about three years, and it was time to upgrade so I could have more storage. I compared the iPhone X, XR, and XS. The iPhone XR was a good deal among the three at a lower price and with an additional discount from Best Buy if you choose the monthly payments option when upgrading. Face ID is actually a pretty nice feature. Having the whole front face of the phone being a screen is nice and now my 6s screen looks so small when comparing it with my XR. The iPhone XR is a little big so it takes some getting used to. Overall, I think this is a nice upgrade if you need more storage on your phone or just need a new phone, but it’s not a MUST-have if your old phone works fine for you.

    Amazing phone and features for a great price

    Just picked this phone after doing a lot of research between the XS and XR. This phone has everything I need and I honestly can’t tell the difference with the naked eye between the LCD and OLED screen on an XS. The screen is bigger which is a bonus but I did notice some games (on both systems) don’t take advantage of the full screen and get pillar box cut offs at the end. The only noticeable difference between this and an XS is the lack of 3D Touch. I find this odd because even my 7plus has this. But honestly I never used it so it’s not even that noticeable a difference. I would highly recommend this phone over the CS on the price alone since 99% of the features are the same.

    The "budget" iphone is a decent offering.

    The XR is a decent, entry level iphone. It does everything its more expensive bretheren does with slightly poorer screen quality and a lesser camera. Picture and video still look great just not astounding. Battery is exceptional. You can even save money by getting the XR with a higher storage capacity than a smaller capacity S or S-Max model. If you are less concerned with top model specs, the XR will suit your needs well if you have to be in the Apple iOS ecosystem. XR carries all the niceties of iphone and is a worthwhile upgrade from a 7 or 6s plus. Best Buy pricing still better than carrier offering.

    I have had the iPhone 6 and 7 and loved them for their size but when my iPhone 7 was eligible for an upgrade, I was a little sceptical about getting a larger size. But, I decided to give the iPhone XR a try. No regrets! The size is just a little bigger but not to big. I love the larger screen. There is no Home button but after about a day, I got used to swiping and can use my new iPhone with ease. I got my iPhone XR in white and I have a silver glitter case mate case on it. It looks great with the white while protecting the phone. I’m so happy I got this iPhone! No complaints!

    the network was unbearably slow, OMG Sprint! my gosh i live in a college town and one would think the signal strength would be more then 1 or 2 bars. speeds? ridiculously slow @ 4-7 M/bps down and a mere .35 M/bps up! steer clear of Sprint, there were many times as well i received a banner notify that 'no network was detected', try again. As for the iPhone XR? i didn't fall in love with it, and that suggests to me its not worth the price tag. based on my network issues, iPhone XR was returned, and account with Sprint was cancelled.

    Upgraded from an iPhone SE and love the bigger phone and features. The battery life for this phone is hands down the best I’ve ever seen and the primary reason why I considered buying this phone. On my normal use, this lasted two days compared to needing to charge once or twice a day with my SE. If your an on the go user for with your phone, especially for business use, I highly recommend this phone. The missing few features from the Xs is not a big deal to me at all. If you want good quality battery life, buy this phone!

    I loved my iPhone 7 and amazed by how much I like this new phone. It didn't take long to learn the new finger motions that replace the home button and they work very fast. Also, the face recognition is almost instantaneous and even replaces use of many passwords. I got the blue phone that is beautiful through a clear back phone protective case. Best of all, I am buying this phone after much dissatisfaction with a lease agreement on a previous phone. Best Buy salesman did a great job of making the transition to a new phone.

    Since I have only had the new XR for a couple of weeks, I’m still learning the new options the phone offers. It is much larger than my former iPhone 6S and while I was initially worried about that, I now appreciate the size. The pictures this phone takes are outstanding and gorgeous. Everyone who has seen my pictures are impressed and comment on them. At this time, I haven’t had any technical issues with the phone, so I can’t comment further, but the phone is doing what I purchased it to do.

    Before I purchased this phone, I researched and asked questions. However, I was kind of disappointed when the rep opened the phone. So, coming from an iPhone 6 to a XR; it's kind of difficult. The phone was bigger than I expected, the camera is great, but not better than the XS. I wish the rep explained this. If it was up to me, I would've never upgraded. My bf wanted me with a new phone because of the camera on the iPhone 6. Go for the iPhone XS.

    Love this phone. Pros: Just as fast the XS Bigger screen than XS or 8Plus, only slightly smaller than Xs Max No home button is great! Face ID works wonderfully $250 to $350 less than Xs or Xs Max Battery life best of all iPhone. Coming from 2yr old 7Plus, easily 3 hours longer. Cons: LCD not quite as good as OLED on Xs, most won't even notice. No close up camera (how often do you really use it?)

    Battery life is the reason to get this phone! By far the best I’ve ever seen with a smartphone. The very few missing features compared the the Xs is not even an issue to me compared to what you get, and it’s great! If you are on the go a lot and depend on your phone for daily high usage, get this, it should last you the day easy. My normal use of the phone last two days compared to charging daily with my old phone.

    I’ve switched back to an iPhone after a few years of android use. Luckily my 11 year old daughter can help me navigate! I got the blue XR and the color is really pretty. It’s a subtle blue with just enough flair but not too loud. I went with the 128 gb to allow for room so I hope space wise I’m good. I like the size of the phone. Couldn’t beat the price for what this phone offers. So far so good!

    I purchased the phone for my son who loves tiny phones, but he seemed to have finally crossed over to the bigger phone when his tiny iPhone SE quit and would no longer resurrect from the phone grave. I was glad. He is has gotten used to the bigger phone and likes the phone a lot. For me personally, I wish Apple kept the fingerprint option, as with the iPhone 7.

    I was concerned about not the having the fingerprint option anymore but the phone was actually very easy to use without it. I got used to the change very quickly. The size of the phone is perfect and you can easily access previous apps that you’ve used if you need to go back and forth. It’s fast and clean and the camera is way better than the 7 definitely take advantage of portrait mode.

    Coming from an iPhone7, the iPhoneXR is a different world. Sound is much better and wireless is much faster. I have 1000MB internet and on the iphone7, i typically get 300MBps to 350MBps. With the better design and chip on the iPhoneXR, I get 400MBps to 450MBps. Screen is bigger and the magnetic charging is a plus (back to my Palm Pre days).

    I switched from a Samsung to an iPhone because I was tired of how slow my Samsung was being and how quickly it lost it’s charge. I love the camera on this and the amount of storage. Only downside is some of my frequently uses android apps don’t work on this phone. Even one I downloaded from the apple store crashes my iPhone every time I use it. Other than that the phone is great.

    I used only android however when the 10R come I had to have it in product Red. That being said this is the best phone I ever had it’s real easy to use the screen is excellent, I comment on that because people said it was an issue being lcd. I don’t think I could have picked a better phone. So glad I made the switch to apple phone.

    I "upgraded" from the iPhone X to this model. The design of the phone is as aesthetically pleasing as Apple usually is and the red edition really stands out. I have noticed greatly improved battery life in this model than what I had in my X. The screen resolution is not as good but in a small phone screen the difference really doesn't matter.
