    For Apple, a good buy

    Fast, excellent display and camera, strong cellular and wireless connectivity. Although appreciably larger than previous iPhone 7, not too large for pants pockets. Ergonomics generally good, bearing in mind the size (I have large hands, others may demur on this opinion). Pricey, but in the universe of Apple, probably the best buy. Not a bleeding edge users, so no desire to pay many more $s for XSs. As I understand it, not upgradeable to 5G (XSs are), and uses 2x2 vice 4x4 MIM technology. That said, 5G unlikely to be widely implemented and used for a couple years, which is when I'll likely upgrade, so my sense is save $s now, allow the technology to mature, upgrade to next gen or two a couple years down the road. Really no complaints; it meets or exceeds all of my needs and wants at a reasonable (again: Apple reasonable) price.

    Incredible Power at a Nice Price

    I made the switch from Android to iOS and the XR is a great phone for my transition. Going from the Galaxy S8+ to the XR would be a step backward in the eyes of some tech enthusiasts, but I just love my new phone in many ways. The dimension of the screen for the XR feels better whether reading from a horizontal or vertical perspective. And the drop in resolution is hardly noticeable. What I will say is that the colors seem much more dynamic, and images look more crisp and natural on this device. And I'll also say that iOS is ridiculously fast on this phone. I felt like I had moments of hang time on my Samsung, but that hasn't really happened with the XR. It's just an excellent phone overall.

    Nice budget 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 just purchased my iPhone XR (AT &T) from Best Buy last week. As a longtime Android user, I was at first reluctant to switch to the iPhone XR. But once I did, I can say that the phone is well worth the price. You basically get all of the features in the XS, XS Max and X from last year for less, which for me, is quite good. Face ID is fast and reliable (except if you are attempting to use in low light conditions), and the camera takes beautiful pictures. The A12 Bionic chip is no slouch either. RECOMMEND.

    Slightly bigger, and much better

    I upgraded from an iPhone 7 and really like the XR. It's certainly heavier, but the performance is nice. I adapted to the screen without home button quickly. Somehow the phone seems simply better quality. I always have two phones to avoid single point of failure. So the 7 is still alive, replacing an old flip-phone. Yes, I'm finally without a flip phone. No regrets there. All the data transferred just fine. Yolanda (if I recall her name correctly) did a great job. Best Buy earns my business by carrying the best products and having the best customer service. Remember that (I have no doubt), and I'll keep coming back for more.

    Upgrade from iPhone 6

    This is an upgrade from iPhone 6. I debated getting the Xs vs the Xr. Oled vs the liquid Led. Both are phenomenal. I didn’t see much of a difference from the 2 screens. Both have the portrait mode. The Xr has a multiple of color cases. I picked the blue one. It all came down to the price. I picked the Xr and saved some money.

    This phone may be budget friendly in price, but by no means is it budget in features! The iPhone Xr is a terrific device that takes amazing pictures, is blazing fast and does by the way, have a fantastic looking LCD screen. At 6.1", it is also the perfect size! Save yourself hundreds of dollars and pickup one of these awesome colorful phones! :)

    The Best iPhone Ever!

    This one lives up to the hype. This iPhone XR was purchased for my wife. She wanted a larger screen, but didn’t want to to the iPhone XS Max. Form factor is perfect, screen is tremendous, processor noticeably faster. She loves the facial recognition security. Overall, well worth the money. Crazy colors cheapen the overall evaluation of the phone. It’s not a cheapo version of the XS.

    I like this phone much less than my Apple 6S Plus. The size is narrower and smaller overall. I liked the size of the earlier phone better. I don't like the lack of home button and facial recognition. It actually takes more time to use. Overall, I just don't like the X interface. The memory is great, but that's about all.

    Best iPhone for its Price

    I love the iPhone XR. It does everything I need plus it’s a bigger screen without having to pay for the bigger screen. If you are looking for a new iPhone that runs quick and smooth plus camera quality is amazing for what it can do. Don’t skip out on this iPhone plus you can choose your own color. A lot better than the iPhone 5c when it came out.

    Coming from an iPhone SE just about anything new would have been a major upgrade but this phone is still exceeding my expectations even 3 months later. The camera is amazing, the storage space is to die for, and the battery life is a million times better than my old phone. I’m so happy with this purchase!

    It's a phone and it does stuff. The differences to the average user are minimal at best. The camera has improved though. 2 year old technology is treated as taboo, but the last 2 generations of cell phones were fine. It comes down to a few bucks more in terms of payments so why not get the newest with the most.

    I upgraded and like this new iPhone. It took a while to get accustomed to the new swipes and tricks as they have updated quite a bit since my old one - but it's very intuitive and can be figured out just by messing with it. Glad I bought it.

    Excellent phone. Upgraded from an IPhone 8+. Perfect sized phone. Amazing battery life. Can’t tell a difference in screen resolution compared to the 8+. Camera is great. No portrait mode for objects, animals, etc is annoying, but free apps are a suitable workaround.

    Apple was smart to come out quickly with a less expensive option than the X Max and XS. The XR has most the features and the ones it does not have, you really cannot tell. I like the case color options and definitely wanted the 256 for more storage space.

    Phone wasn't activated, and it turns out it has an activation date of 03/17/19 and AT&T isn't able to move the date until then. I ordered online for in-store pick up by the way... worst experience ever with Mobile company / 3rdparty.

    Great phone. Love that it’s larger but not as large as the XS Max. Everything is clearer that’s on my last iPhone X. Sound quality is way better when watching videos. Great Apple product as always.

    Moved back to iPhone after a number of years. Screen size is nice and the bezel is not as some of the reviews make it out to be. IOS takes some time getting use to after being on Android. can go all day with out a charge. Worth the money.

    It’s had no problems as of yet but ask me in 3 yrs when it’s paid off and technology has changed many times. Also it’s the last of the pin codes as apple is going to face and fingerprint

    I’m enjoying this phone so far. I upgraded from my old iPhone 6, so this has a ton of new features. Apple’s design makes it easy to figure out the new features. The camera is great, and overall it’s much faster.
