    Expensive phone

    I used to have an iPhone 6, and decided to give this new iPhone XR a try. After been using it for 2 weeks, I’m not impressed taking into account the amount of money it costs ($600 after rebates). It looks nicer than the previous iPhone and the Face ID seems to be an innovation, but that doesn’t justify coming out with a new phone. I remember when iPhone came out with the first version and it was a creation that changed the world, then the iPhone 4 showed a great deal of improvement over its ancestor, but after that, versions 5 through 10(X) are just mere marketing products that fail to bring anything worthy of a new version. I switched to Macintosh because I was tired of the “new” Windows versions and their lack of actual quality in their operating system. Now, even thought I still observe IOS as the superior operating system, I failed to find the advantages of paying $600 for aesthetics on a cellphone, other than not falling that far behind with a cellphone that won’t take any more updates (happened to me with the iPhone 4). Also, I don’t see the big difference among the pictures I took with my previous iPhone and the ones taken by this XR model, and the video quality on the XR seems to be 720 at best. That’s my experience with the XR model. Hope it helps anyone looking for an insight.

    Major upgrade on my IPhone!

    I recently upgraded from an IPhone 5 to an IPhone XR! My IPhone 5 was dying on me slowly but surely, so I decided to upgrade to a new phone before it was too late! Since I previously owned an IPhone I was pretty familiar with some of the apps and how they function. The XR is truly fun to have and mines came with a new 64 GB Sim card. The speed of the Internet browser and online streaming for apps is amazing! Since I am on the Sprint network they were offering hundreds of dollars off the XR model. I bought the color red as it comes in about six different colors. It also has the Face ID instead of the fingerprint ID. This is quite new for me, but actually it's not that bad; however, I find it a little annoying when trying to access the phone and sometimes it does not capture your identity so I have to resort to inputting my password. The volume buttons are on the left side and on the right side are buttons to control Siri and to power on and off the phone. These are the only buttons on the phone, which makes it a little awkward because when I'm playing games I notice while holding the phone in a vertical position I accidentally hit the buttons which then takes screen shots! Overall, I love the sleek design, the larger screen to view media, the speed of the phone, and the battery life is awesome!

    I swapped XS for XR

    I have had the 6s & 8 and spent 10 days with the XS. I did not like it. The change in aspect ratio resulting in a taller narrow screen actually shrunk the keyboard and any text not in reader view and it also eliminated display zoom available in the 8 and XR. It felt awkward in hand for no benefit. On paper the XS has many technical advantages. In every day use the XR is superior to me. Much better viewing experience, bigger battery and no visible downgrade from Oled to LCD. The telephoto lens would have been nice, but for the other 95% of my usage the choice is easy. Is it big and heavy? When I put it on my passenger seat it triggers the seat belt alarm! Ha! I'm getting use to the larger size because it's worth it. I paired it with the Speck Presidio Pro for a smooth silky not slippery in hand feel. Some have mentioned the black bezel around the screen. The black case optically removes it. I presume contrasting colors may accentuate the bezel.

    It’s nothing special to me. I had a iPhone 6 before this one and I feel not much has changed. First thing I noticed was the terrible childish color options which can be covered with a phone case but I bought a clear case so the weird blue still shows when I take mirror selfies. It has the Animoji’s which I used once or twice. None of them really look like me. It has facial recognition that works half the time but I still have to swipe up even when it does. Or I have to enter my passcode which is annoying. I could just as soon take the passwords off but then my information is available to anyone who picks up my phone. Honestly touchID was quicker. The screen is bigger without the home button taking up space. And the earphone jack is gone now and combined with the charger port. I feel like the phone is too big as it’s hard to reach the top of the screen with only one hand. I seriously think there’s no excitement with this phone and I only got it because my iPhone 6 started malfunctioning and because It’s compatible with the majority of my contacts who also have iPhones.

    Poor sound quality

    Purchased this phone to replace worn out 4s. Had heard about poor sound quality, but purchased this one hoping for better outcome. Only had this phone for 1 month, and the sound quality is terrible! Cons: Cannot clearly hear callers. Sound is very distorted and static, and suddenly drops to barely audible. Callers keep asking me to speak up, or into the phone, or stop moving around. None of which is the problem. This phone has very poor sound/volume. Should have gotten the 8s. Pros: Some of the features, such as facial recognition. and the enhanced color, are nice. Not much into all the apps and programs, but GarageBand is nice to have.

    The size of the screen is bigger yet the phone is smaller than previous Iphone. I love the facial recognition feature. It took me a little bit to get used to not having the thumb button, and without it some functions are different like screen shots and what not but I got used to it in about a week. The facial recognition feature is also available for you to use on your apps, like your mobile banking, etc. so that way if someone was to get into your phone, they cannot auto log into your personal stuff. The camera quality is GREAT! You also have the portrait feature in both forward and selfie mode, you can get really good quality photos. Highly recommend

    I have been to the Apple Store twice since purchasing the phone. it has had a number of problems. Even the Genius Bar technician stated “GOD KNOWS HOW ALL THIS HAPPENS”. I’m now left with working with an Apple care person over the phone Since the problems are outside the scope of an Apple Genius Bar technicians abilities. In addition the phone number that I was assigned receives a large number of unknown calls most of the calls once you pick up the phone they will hang up on you. I thought I was purchasing a new product not a grade B refurbished product. I would not recommend this product to a friend at this time.

    Best iPhone Ever

    I traded up my iPhone 7Plus for the XR, and wow! What a difference! The screen size is perfect, it’s like having a small iPad Mini instead of a large phone screen. I’m able to view everything so much better, more of a page can be viewed at once than on my iPhone 7Plus, and everything is crystal clear. It took a little bit of getting used to not having a home screen button, but not that long. The phone also just looks so much nicer, too, without the wasted screen space. The battery is also just as excellent as it’s claimed to be, and the best of any iPhone I’ve ever had. I love my iPhone XR!

    This phone is a great piece however I give it 3 stars because I have had complaints from others on the other end of the phone saying how much I sound garbled or unclear. I either reposition the phone or use the speakerphone. This has happened on more than a dozen occasions in the month that I have had this phone and it is very annoying. I have been with the same service provider for over 20 years and not had a problem until I started using this phone. I was told that there is nothing wrong with the phone. I have had iPhones in the past and have never had this problem.

    I recently upgraded from the iPhone 7. Went in just anticipating to get the next step up but ended up going with this model. It’s a little smaller than the 8+, the camera supposed to be better but I haven’t really noticed that much of a difference in the quality. The portrait option is nice to have now. But it’s pretty noticeably heavier. It’s odd getting used to the facial recognition but I think this is just the way the technology is going and will have to get used to it at some point anyway. Overall I’m happy with it but I’ll below looking forward to upgrading again in 12 months.

    I am an apple girl. This is my first new Iphone since the 6. I have been having some issues getting used to the face recognition as opposed to the touch ID. Not sure which i prefer. I think its pretty nice that the phone recognizes me and not my husband, but not having that home button at the bottom has taken longer then I thought it would to get used to. I still haven't completely gotten the knack of swiping up up to go to the home page. But other then that I like this phone, but most of the iphone features I use are the same as the 6.

    I went to the Sprint store to see what they would do for me being a customer with the for 20 years and they would do nothing for me. I went to best buy and they ended up giving me $150 off the phone and 0% financing through Sprint for 2 years. Why the Sprint store could not do this is beyond me. The phone has been great so far. The battery life is amazing on the device and it does everything I need it to do. First time purchasing an Apple product and I'm very satisfied.

    The Iphone Xr needs more colors

    I purchased the new IphoneXr for my teenage daughter. The phone works perfectly, the features are definitely nice and it is easier to use. The problem was the limits in the color of the phone. We only had 2 options in the store - black and red. My daughter took the black one and I took the red one. She wanted a different color and it was not available. Since many of us are purchasing for teenagers and young adults, I would just ask that they expand the available colors of the phone for purchase.

    I started with the XS Max but returned it and got an XR. The XR may not have as nice of a display and a couple other features, but for what I and most people will be using the phone for, it is by far the best buy considering the price difference between the models. I’m giving it 4 stars due to the lack of a home button. I quickly got used to not having the home button and like it; however, I’ve had some apps be forced into landscape mode and then have no way to get back to the home screen without restarting the phone.

    Awesome phone! I was very surprised with this phone when I decide to upgrade to it. I’m used to having a big phone like the iPhone8+. I wasn’t sure about the Face ID either so he’s very skeptical about the whole phone. Now that I have it I’m in love with the whole phone. I also like the fact that you have in emoji’s on it. I also like the fact that when I call Apple support they will help you with the phone. This is a real good deal and is very well pleased. It’s awesome that’s all I can say

    I’ve been using apple phones for a long time. I traded my 7plus for the XR after speaking with the sales people and reading reviews. I like the smaller size but bigger screen. Originally I was disappointed with the camera especially losing the optical zoom. The store manager recommended trying the ProCamera app which greatly improved the ease and use of the camera. Like the look and design. Now happy with the camera and photos!

    We had iPhone 8’s before upgrading to the XR. The camera is the same. The screen looks the same. The features are familiar. The button is gone (thank God!). And the coral color is beautiful. I was trying to decide between the XS Max and XR, and the extra $300 wasn’t worth a fancy camera and screen and a phone too big for my hand. This is a great option and we’re paying less monthly than we did with the 8!
