On iPhone XR Size, color and design

MacRumors reader Kendo warned that iPhone XR isn Det is a space between XS and XS Max due to the size of the device’s element. If you wanted iPhone XR because the iPhone XS Max was too big, you may still be dissatisfied with the size.

Because the frames are one mm thicker (two if you include both sides) and the 6.1

“screen, the width is approximately identical to XS Max. It’s only a bit shorter but also thicker. I was originally on the market for a little bigger phone than XS and a little less phone than Max (the cheaper price was just icing on the cake). But because the width is essentially the same, you’re better just getting a Max about money was not a problem and you just wanted a ” between “size between XS and Max. If you will handle a bulky phone anyway, you can also get the bigger screen on Max because the width and weight really resemble XR.

MacRumors reader tks900 said he had other thoughts about his iPhone XR because of its size compared to iPho ne 6s even though the screen is wonderful.

But: It’s quite big. And heavy. Coming from 6S this is a really different animal. I have big hands and usually handle my phone with one hand. Impossible with XR. This greatness of this thing becomes even more obvious when I use it with a fall. I know that many people do not come, but for me, the phone is just too high without a case and actually even harder to handle.

Redditor Meerkatch said that iPhone XR feels like a toy version of iPhone XS due to the size of the interior.

The framing of the pages is noticeably large in reality. The framing is like how a glass screen protector is on an iPhone 6, but the screen protector is the current display of the phone, except for the home button and the camera and with a notch (if it’s wise). I would not say that it is sufficiently motivated to get Xs. I felt like a toy version of Xs for some reason, it feels like an Apple Watch Sport compared to Apple Watch Edition (Xs).

Redditor downwardCorgi said that the red color is lighter than blood red and that the rings are not noticeable. Using it in some situations is difficult, he says.

It is a slightly darker shade than a typical rainbow flag red. It may be a bit lighter than the actual blood red. And yes, now that everything is rounded, it’s pretty sweet. If the screen was small, the same frames would look bigger, but the phone itself is already big, you just look at the content on the screen, not the framing.

Achieving the top is good if you are using reachability. It’s another step but I think it’s a good compromise. Reaching the left edge with the right thumb to go back to the previous page is quite difficult but it is possible. In short, it’s good if you’re using accessibility, it’s quick and easy, horizontal and when the whole way to the other side of the thumb is a bit difficult when shopping. When using with your left hand, probably not as much a problem because I do not think there are gestures to swipe from the right edge. But writing with one hand is still difficult due to the horizontal length.

MacRumors reader c.s. pointed out that iPhone XR is much easier to grab than older aluminum iPhones, for customers coming from an iPhone 7 or earlier.

Just picked up an iPhone XR on the Apple Store to replace my iPhone 7 . No line at dinner, it was an easy shopping experience. I have always used the Apple Leather Case on my 7th, and I was pleasantly surprised when I handled XR. My 7 always felt slippery when that was not the case, but XR is much more grippy to me. In fact, I choose to go caseless and just get AppleCare if I regret that decision.


On iPhone XR ‘s display

Redditor 3mbersea shared photos of iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max screens side by side in portrait and landscape mode. 3mbersea says there is a big difference in screen quality when watching high quality videos, but not for regular use.

MacRumors Reader Nitefly shared some details on the display of iPhone XR points out that there is some color change, but it is small.

I post this from an XR. Phhwooooar what a phone!

There is some color change. But the point where it makes a significant difference is the point where you would never choose to use the screen at that angle.

In other words, the color change is small in a generous field of view. In extreme angles, you can not even watch TV shows, it’s more pronounced. I would say that screen dimming is more obvious than color change. Likewise, it is really quite indispensable.

My god, the camera is ace. I also saw this screen next to an XS and could not see the difference in sharpness at a sensible “phone with” distance.

Redditor MonstersUGrad98 confirms that XR uses the same iOS layout as Plus size iPhones, which shows a split view with two columns in apps like Messages and Mail.

MacRumors reader gig090 said that iPhone XR s screen resolution is “good” and nothing you need to worry about, even compared to XS. However, the framing is “bit too fat” compared to iPhone XS .


MacRumors Readers Shape Performance said the LCD screen is good, but he prefer the smaller frames of XS and XS Max .

Overall good LCD display. Probably the best LCD screen on an iPhone. Max is a bit longer. The width is about the same. Weight is also good at this XR. Now framing … I do not like them but it’s okay.

On the A12 Bionic Processor

Redditor imagineJack, who came to iPhone XR from Android, says it’s super fast and responsive.

That phone is extremely nice, fast and responsive. Every app I open stays in memory of the ages. (Not sure if this is just a general iOS 12 thing but that’s fine.) The speakers are good, the camera is good.
