    Great phone, awesome battery

    I am a LONG time apple user, long, long before Apple blew up. I never had any problems with my old 6s, but was feeling antsy so I decided to upgrade my old iPhone 6s to an iPhone XR. After days and days of research and reading between the XS and XR, I decided on the XR. At first it was very odd not having a home button, but I got used to it fast. My husband got the 64GB and I the 128GB. The color options are nice, I chose the light blue. The screen size is great at 6.1" and the battery life is AWESOME. I cannot express this enough, I am still in disbelief at how great the battery life is. If the battery was the only upgrade from a 6s to an XR, I would purchase the upgrade on the battery life alone. It is simply amazing. The liquid retina display is crisp and clean. The face ID is impeccable and I am not sure how I managed without it. The features I love the most: • Battery life • Face ID • Water/Splash resistant • Fast loading apps • Large display There is not anything I do not love about this phone. If you are debating on whether or not to upgrade, or if you're not sure which model to purchase - hesitate no longer...this is the one!

    Amazing, but...

    Upgraded from an iphone 6s so i felt like it was an amazing upgrade. The phone is beautiful and i like everything i wasn’t sure about (resolution, bigger size), I had doubts about that from reviews. The camera is amazing, the phone is fast!! Now the downside. The signal on this phone is not good at all!! I have been with Verizon for over 15 years and never had an issue with signal. This phone will stall all the time where i cant send a text or browse the internet. I know its not the network because i jave been with them forever. I also have 3 friends who bought this phone and complain about the same thing ( Verizon, T-mobile and Sprint), so not related to 1 network. I read online and there are forums about this issue so it’s not a unique situation to me. Was hoping they would do an ios fix for this but nothing so far. So beautiful phone, just be prepared to be stuck with moments when it is not going to be able to work for you! Not keeping me from enjoying it, but gets annoying when it happens (more often than i am used to or would want).

    Not a good experience with new iPhone XR

    I was wanting to update my old iPhone 6s with the new iPhone XR - I researched both new models and found this would fit my needs. I had a great transaction at Bestbuy - but the phone itself was a nightmare. From the beginning it was a pain to get all my apps and info transferred over to the new phone - then on every single call I made I was awful phone quality and dropped calls. checked with my carrier and it was not due to poor reception. I updated everything apple that I Own so that I would be running the most up to date version of all softwares - and it did not make a difference. I researched the phone quality issues I was having and found tons of related articles and message forums that people were having the same problem with this model phone and even after trading it in and getting a new one. I decided not to bother with the hassle and just go back to the iPhone 6s which is working fine -minus my quickly draining battery (thank you apple) I feel like a phone that costs as much as the ones do there shouldn't be such poor call quality and I shouldn't have to "put a piece of tape over the receiver" as one message forum suggested. I guess I will wait till a new one comes out probably in a few months LOL

    I walked into Best Buy with the intention of upgrading from a 6s Plus to the 8 Plus. So glad I went with this phone! It didn’t cost much more than the 8 Plus and has so many features, which I am still learning. I didn’t realize they came out the same day as I went into the store which was just several days ago. This phone is just more affordable than the XS or XS Max. It’s different with no home button and swiping up to get my apps and such, but really it didn’t take me long to get used to it. I just love the Face ID as well. I did use the Passcode at times on the 6s Plus, but it wasn’t always convenient to do that. Now I just look at my phone, and I can keep Face ID on all the time. Love the color blue as well, and have it in a clear case to show it off. The battery lasts longer that my old phone too, which is a big plus. I haven’t gotten into the portraits mode of the photos as yet. There is just so much to learn!

    Nice alternative to the more expensive iPhones

    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.

    Battery is incredible.

    So far the battery life on this phone has far exceeded my expectations. You can probably go a good day in a 1/2 (maybe longer) on one charge. The phone seems a bit heavy at first but you get used to it. Despite the screen being LCD, it still looks very good. I played the same video on the XR screen and the XS screen side by side and there was only a slight difference. I like OLED displays but would prefer LCD if it's going to give me a longer lasting battery. The phone is very zippy and smooth. I switched over from being a longtime android user and I'm enjoying the Iphone so far. I was worried about not having expandable storage but you can easily back up your photos to Google Photos or Apple Icloud if you want. You can also back up pictures and videos to an external flash drive that's made for Iphones. Also, Messenger is great on the iphone and Facetime is very cool. Tried out group facetime and it worked flawlessly.

    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,

    Decent phone

    If you have used a XS or XS Max, the XR may be a disappointment. However, if, like me, you enjoy being able to use your cell phone for actual phone calls, you may find the XR more reliable. From what I can tell, the XR uses a different antenna than the XS and XS Max. When the XS antenna works, it’s amazing! However, I had horrific luck getting the XS to hold a call, even with ample tech support. The XR is more reliable, but the camera and screen are major down-grades from the XS. If you don’t care that much about the camera and screen (I.e., resolution and color range), you may be super pleased with the XR. Personally, I miss my XS, but I am unwilling to pay over $1000 for a phone that does not work correctly. So, the XR will do for now. In my opinion, Apple really dropped the ball with these 2018 releases. Thanks, Apple, for making a long-term, loyal Apple user consider switching to Android.

    After reading more reviews and videos than I care to mention about the “budget” iPhone I finally decided to leave my beloved 7 plus for the XR and I couldn’t be more happy. The screen size is basically the same as the 7 plus but it goes from top to bottom it’s got some new features that I haven’t messed with too much but it’s definitely faster and the battery life is awesome ! If you spend a lot of time streaming or listening to music this is the phone for you. As far as lack of a home button I’d say it took me about a day until I was able to navigate this thing like I’ve had it for years and actually now prefer it not having a home button. Also the facial recognition is basically 98% right every time I’ve had maybe 4-5 time where it didn’t recognize me for what ever reason but it’s spot on and fast every other time great phone LOVE IT

    I'm going to spend less time on the iPhone which is my wife's and she loves it AFTER getting used to it. If you are like her and been putting off phone buying since 6 or so, this phone will cure what ails you. Plenty of storage, great screen, great camera, no overkill $1000 features for a decent price. What is truly 5 stars is the BB in store phone team. I like Verizon a lot but, I hate their physical store. BB has an ace with the team at our local store. They are knowledgeable, can do data transfers, set things up, answer questions and get you going. Because we have total tech (which I was never sure was completely worth it until now) my wife came back in when she had time and learned a bunch of things about her phone. Just a great experience. Fast, no pressure, right package, easy addendum to my Verizon contract and we were out of there! Try that at a phone store. I dare you!!

    Great Phone with Some Small Issues

    My fiance is very happy with this phone, although for her it is a bit big and difficult to handle. This is not entirely due to the size but also the material being in her opinion rather slippery. This can be solved by a case, but that also adds additional heft to the phone. Although this is certainly a personal preference, comfort when using the device is important. For me, the screen is a bit compromised when compared to other phones at this level and the lower resolution is clear to me, but completely unrecognized by my fiance. If you are someone who doesn't easily notice differences in resolution, this may not matter to you at all. Overall the phone is fast and the cameras are excellent. In day to day use, my fiance is very happy with the iPhone XR.

    iPhone Worth the Upgrade

    I got this after slightly more than 3 years with an iPhone SE that was starting to show its age by running more slowly and struggling more with battery life. The iPhone XR is a phone worth the hefty price. The battery on this phone is exceptional, it easily holds up over tons of usage on demanding apps such as Twitter. But it isn't just a durable device in terms of battery life. The hardware stands on its own as an excellent selling point. The A12 processor blazes through most apps and tasks, and talking to Siri feels fast and fluid, which could not generally be said in regards to previous iPhones. And Face ID, while not perfect, works around 90-95% of the time and certainly works more reliably than Touch ID ever did for me.

    The iPhone XR are is a pretty neat phone. It has a nice portrait mode and it also have tons of face characters you can use when you FaceTime. My only issue which is ultimately annoying is if someone puts you in a group text you cannot leave the conversation and depending on if everyone has an iPhone you can’t even mute the conversation even if you delete the main person’s number you’ll still get a group text because your number is tied into the texts. Apple really need to fix that feature. The find my iPhone app isn’t that great either. I thought I lost my phone when I log in my Apple account from my son’s phone it gave me at least 10 different locations. When I got to one location it switched at another and all the while it was in my car under the seat.

    This phone is great. Impressive size & the screen looks amazing. It may not be as high Rez as the XS, but I think only tech savvy people would notice. I’ve seen both & it’s not that much of a difference to me. It also finally fixes the legacy issue of the mono sound of iPhones, with Apple only putting sound out of one end up until now. Now the sound seems to come from the ear speaker as well, finally creating true stereo sound. The sound is great now. The screen is super smooth & responsive, combined with the large size, finger typing is very easy. Powerful processing makes for very fast speed & smoothness when operating

    After about 3 weeks this phone started pocket dialing, even while locked. It even does it while I'm just holding the phone in my hand. I have to power off the phone in order to get it to stop. There are times when I dial a number in order to save it to my contacts later, and when I go to save it, those numbers wouldn't be in the call log at all. While talking, I get complaints of muffled tones or just not being heard while talking. I even put it on speaker, or the headset that comes with it, and it's the same result. Also, there is no sound for notifications for text or voice messages. This phone costs too much to have all of these issues.

    Going from iPhone 5 to iPhone XR has been a very rude surprise in terms of the change in the phone's weight and width for a woman with small hands. I typically reach over with the thumb of my left hand to single-handedly manage the features of some of my apps and now that has become more challenging . I also prefer to hold my phone in one hand when running. However, this new phone is cumbersome enough that I am now I'm thinking of purchasing the Apple Watch for that particular activity, an unanticipated expense. I wear a light jacket to work as part of my uniform but I no longer keep my phone in my pocket all day long like I used to due to the phone weighing me down. Would have preferred a new iPhone 5 to replace my dead one but sadly no longer manufactured.

    Best Phone for the Price

    I upgraded to the IPhone XR from an IPhone 5, it was a much needed upgrade. I did a fair amount of research on various phones, both Android and IPhone in order to decide which would be the best phone for me. I decided to purchase the IPhone XR, and I have been extremely happy with it. The camera quality is fantastic, all of the modes are great, and portrait mode is phenomenal. I am particularly happy with the quality of photos taken at night. The screen size is perfect. The color of the phone is beautiful and modern. And, best of all, the battery life is insane. Although it takes a fair amount of time to charge, the battery will last for several days even with fair amount of use each day. If you are considering upgrading, I would highly recommend this phone.

    I upgraded from an Iphone 7 after I dropped my phone and it shattered-my fault since I did not have it in the protective case. This phone is bigger but it fits comfortably in my hand. The graphics are very sharp and clear and a huge improvement from the 7. The speakers put out robust sound when playing my music. It sounds 4 times as loud to my ear. The A-12 processor is lightning fast and the facial ID works well. THe phone is easy to use and I do not miss the home button. The display is so much larger than my old phone. It really is an amazing smart phone. All of my apps ported over with no glitches. I purchased the otter box and a screen protector, having duly learned my lesson the hard way.

    I had a iPhone 5 I was replacing and did a lot of research for my needs before I purchased a new phone. I was going to get the iPhone xs originally, because of the size, (I have small hands) but could not justify the cost even though I tend to keep what I am familiar with for a while, so I finally decided on the 8+. Then after talking with the sales person they said the iPhone xr was smaller and the same price and so considering the other options I decided to get the iPhone xr. It is still bigger than the xs (which I liked better) but I couldn't justify the cost difference. Size does matter if you have small hands because your hand gets fatigued faster. But the xr does and has everything I need but the small size.

    I upgraded my 6s to an XR because the 6s was no longer holding a charge even after replacing the battery. Since I use my cell phone for work I had no choice but to replace. The phone isn't over sized but it is definitely larger than the 6s. It still fits in my pocket and in the pockets of my purse. The phone has some improved features but overall it is not much different than my 6s. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is the price. I know all smart phones are expensive and there is no getting away from it but the prices are unacceptable in my opinion.
