We spent the day with the iPhone XR in New York City, checking out its feature set and doing a quick comparison with the higher-priced iPhone XS for all of our readers who are thinking of picking up Apple's most affordable flagship smartphone later this week.
Close competitor Apple iPhone XS Max on the other hand weighs only 208 grams and has a super retina HD display with 6.5-inch (diagonal) all-screen OLED Multi-Touch display.
Based on several days of testing, it looks like Apple made the right cost-cutting trade-offs with the XR, which starts selling Friday for about $750. There are various aspects covered, so let's see some more details on the teardown and how different it is from the iPhone XS and the previous models. And a comparison test shows the iPhone XR has the best battery life of all 2018 iPhones, just as advertised, and that it does even better than Google's Pixel 3 XL phablet. - The end result won't be identical to "proper" Portrait Mode, but from Apple's examples it does a very good job at matching the results. Unlike the iPhone X or the iPhone XS, the iPhone XR does not have an L shaped battery.
I've been waiting a while but she's finally here! Overall, though, the visible display is much larger than what you get with the iPhone 8 and it's nearly the same as the XS and XS Max. The new iPhone XR isn't probably going to pull in any crowd as it should because it's not probably a big bang while it's supposed to be a big bang. They've described the phone as a "spiritual iPhone 9" due to the fact that it houses numerous more advanced technologies from the X but also uses many older technologies from the iPhone 8 Plus.
"I've been using the yellow iPhone XR for a week, and oooh, is it gorgeous", he wrote. The XR will also be available for purchase on e-commerce platforms like Flipkart and Amazon India, although at the time of writing this story the phone was listed as unavailable or available for pre-order only.

Meanwhile, Fernando Alonso's season - set to be his last in F1 - continued to wind down in unspectacular fashion as the two-time champion scraped into Q2 after a wobble and qualified in 12th.
The only older iPhones that have wireless charging are the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.
You can still take a portrait shot and have the background attractively blurred to keep the focus on the subject, but unlike with the iPhone XS, you can't take pictures of objects and animals in the same way.
That obviously comes in handy if you'd rather not bring your iPhone XS Max with you to the gym or on a run. But hey, the processor is the same, the main cameras are the same, you still get Face ID, and the new iPhone design, though with a slightly thicker bezel. "The average consumer will make a more rational buying decision, which is where the iPhone XR wins".
Once your books are synced, you can leave your iPhone at home or in your gym locker and listen to audiobooks directly from the Audible app on your Apple Watch. The iPhone XR also has longer rated battery life than the iPhone XS and XS Max.
"The XR has the same great wide-angle camera as the XS phones, but lacks the second telephoto lens for true optical zoom...."
