iPhone XR review


The iPhone XR has a battery that lasts longer and offers a better price, especially in the years since it's come out.

Great battery life for an iPhone Attractive array of colors A great value option

Portrait camera mode doesn't impress Some apps still not fully optimized Lower-res screen

If you're looking for an affordable iPhone, the iPhone XR is a strong contender boasting the latest software, enough power and surprisingly good battery life... for an iPhone. With the introduction of the iPhone 11, the XR price has dropped further,...

Apple iPhone XR review


The sweet spot of Apple's current iPhone range

Entertaining, musical sound ; Natural picture ; Good battery life

OLED rivals are punchier ; Headphone dongle is extra

Cheaper than Apple’s OLED iPhones, but the XR still delivers a picture and sound performance to be proud of

Apple iPhone XR updated review: Still worth buying?


The XR has the latest buttonless iPhone design, but without the big bucks asking price. Small compromises can save big bucks.

Very affordable ; Large 6.1-inch display ; Still a good camera ; A12 Bionic processor delivers good power ; Great colour options ; Wireless charging ; IP67 weather/dust sealing

LCD display can't beat OLED on more expensive iPhones ; No mobile HDR ; Not as good as other iPhone camera setups

An iPhone for those who want Apple's latest Face ID design with a colourful shell without spending a fortune.

iPhone XR Review


The iPhone XR has been out for a couple of years now but Apple still displays it proudly at the top of its phones page and a viable option for 2020 – and it's not wrong. The XR still offers swift performance and decent camera capabilities at a modest...

– Bumper battery life, poppin’ performance and a camera coup

– When cheap iPhones got big and an absent fast charger

While iPhone XR has now evolved into the 2019 iPhone 11 , the older model offers plenty of value at the cheaper £629 price. The cheaper priced model still offers speedy performance and the impressive photography capabilities we’ve come to expect from...

iPhone XR review


All things bright and beautiful

excellent battery life ; speedy ; multiple colour options ; reasonable price

LCD screen not as good as OLED ; No portrait mode for dogs, cats and bearded dragons

While it misses out on a few luxuries, the iPhone XR is the toughest, cheapest and sweetest iPhone you can buy

Apple iPhone XR review: Still worth your time and money?


The iPhone XR is not the best iPhone, but it's nearly as good as the Xs and it's far, far cheaper

Cheaper than the iPhone Xs ; Outstanding camera ; Industry leading mobile performance

No optical zoom ; Better battery life but still not amazing

It’s clear that iPhone XR isn’t the best iPhone. It's not even the best phone you can buy for £749, and it’s certainly doesn’t represent the best value in the smartphone industry.
