Theand have already been available for a few weeks, but the third iPhone announced this year comes out this Friday. Specs-wise the iPhone XR is not too far from 2018’s top-tier Apple phones and the XR even has a bigger screen than the XS. Unlike past years, when the more affordable phone came with significantly fewer features than its counterparts, the XR might be the iPhone to get for most people.
The iPhone XR is slightly larger than the XS, so there’s no need to worry about screen size, but the one main feature difference is in the screen resolution — 1,792×828 pixels for the XR’s LCD screen and 2,436×1,125 pixels for the XS’s OLED screen. So the XS definitely wins for pixel density and those two rear camera lenses — the XR has one — are definitely an advantage. But if you take a look at the rest of the specs side-by-side, the XR looks like a pretty solid phone. And it’s quite a bit cheaper.
Check out the specs yourself — I’ve also included theand from previous years.
