Apple iPhone XR review: a brilliant balance of polish, features and price


The iPhone XR brings almost the whole iPhone XS experience, but with better battery life and a lower price

Supremely slick and powerful ; Very strong camera ; Great battery life ; Excellent build quality

Less flexible camera system than the XS ; Can get a better screen for the money ; Lack of 3D Touch is weird

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 review: An iPhone to reach the masses


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 top spec power ; Great colour options ; Wireless charging ; IP67 weather/dust sealing

LCD display can't beat OLED on more expensive iPhones ; No 3D Touch ; No mobile HDR

For those who want Apple's latest design without spending a fortune, this is the iPhone for you.

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

iPhone XR review


The iPhone XR was a marketing masterstroke for Apple: not only did it delay the launch of the third of its trio of 2018 iPhones, thus creating some mystery around it, it’s also managed to make this seem like 2018's ‘cheap’ iPhone....

Great battery life for an iPhone Attractive array of colors Lower price tag

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

The iPhone XR is the most impressive of all the iPhones launched in 2018. Not because of the strength of the spec – the iPhone XS is slightly ahead in a lot of areas – but what you're 'saving' by going for this model far outweighs what you're losing. A...

iPhone XR colours: Apple’s new “entry-level” handsets form a veritable rainbow


Somewhere, a clown just sneezed

The sexiest of the iPhone XRs, the red handset oozes mystery. You can just envisage this handset clasped to the ear of some sultry-eyed stranger on the Central Line (though they’d just be pretending, given the lack of reception.) It’s the Martini of...

iPhone XR vs iPhone 8: Battle of the affordable iPhones


Apple's entry-level iPhones go head-to-head, as we explore how much difference a year can make

But perhaps you like the old-school (relatively speaking) aesthetic of the iPhone 8? Perhaps your idea of an entry-level phone doesn’t involve forking out the best part of a grand? The excellent additions and upgrades to the iPhone XR don’t invalidate...

Apple iPhone XR review: Now £120 cheaper after iPhone 11 launch


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

Performance, in particular, is as quick if not quicker than many modern Android handsets, even more than a year later, its IPS display is great and, hey, it still has a fingerprint scanner - a bonus for anyone who just can't get on with Face ID....
