Apple iPhone XR: Still Best Selling!
Updated: May 12, 2020
Yet one of the best-selling cheapest all-rounder phone by Apple remains Apple iPhone XR.
Released in 2018, Apple iPhone XR still is in an amazing demand in the market due to its affordability by common man and durability being an Apple product.
Today, Apple XR supports 2G, 3G, and 4G with a speed which is HSPA 42.2/5.76 Mbps, LTE-A, EV-DO Rev.A 3.1 Mbps and hence even after two years of its launch and even after the new Apple products been introduced, people are inclining for the XR model.
The Product Design:
Size has been considered peculiarly while launching the XR. It’s bigger than iPhone X and XS but smaller than iPhone XS Max Having a 6.1 inch, 90.3 cm2 screen with dimensions 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3 mm, ~79.0% screen-to-body ratio, the phone looks classy, sturdy and robust.
The back of the phone has a glass screen (Gorilla Glass) and aluminum frame (7000 series) of which the reviews have been mixed. Many have observed that the screen is less durable and hence should be handled with care. Also, the screen is scratch-free having oleophobic coating. The phone weighs 194 g (6.84oz).
A single SIM (Nano-SIM/or ESIM)
The phone perfectly works on IOS 12 which is upgradable to 13.4. The phone comes with a range of memory space and is priced accordingly. The range is 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB and for all, the RAM is 3GB.
The phone does not allow external card slot.
The most important feature of any phone is its performance. Being an Apple product, a 3 GB RAM is way enough to perform the best amongst all the phone in a similar range and this is because the Apple phones are generally high on firewalls which protect against viruses.
The phone runs A12 Bionic processor which is only found in the premium category range of iPhones. This means, the phone is cheaper and also performing in the same manner as other high priced models. This is the main reason why people are still buying the Apple iPhone XR than switching over to the new models.
12 MP, f/1.8, 26mm (wide), 1/2.55", 1.4µm, PDAF, OIS which is Quad-LED dual-tone flash, HDR (photo/panorama). While choosing to take a video the user experiences 2160p@24/30/60fps, 1080p@30/60/120/240fps, HDR, stereo sound rec.
7 MP, f/2.2, 32mm (standard), SL 3D, (depth/biometrics sensor) having an HDR feature with video experience of 1080p@60fps
The word is out that the iPhone XR camera does not match the level of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max though it is way better than other phones of the same price in the market today. The amount that apple is charging for XR is pretty reasonable and hence any high expectation would not be a great result.
Barometer, accelerometer, gyro, Face ID and compass comes built-in Siri now has natural language commands and dictation.
A non-removable Li-Ion 2942 mAh battery (11.16 Wh) with fast charging capacity. For ease, we say the phone gets 50% charge in thirty minutes. The talk time is up to 16 hours and music can be played up to 65 hours.
What We think?
The Apple iPhone XR comes in a variety of colors which are yellow, white, coral, black and red. For the first time Apple has come out with such colors in the market and the phone looks classy in one's hand.
We, hence opine that such brilliant phone which could perform at the level of any high rated Apple phone is much of a reasonable decision. Without any doubt, one should go for it.
