iPhone XR in late 2019 – still worth buying? (Review)

by birtanpublished on January 10, 2021

The iPhone 10 are came out in late 2018 alongside the iPhone 10s and served as a budget ish option it started at 7:49 and 2018 but with the iPhone 11 now being out it was lowered to $5.99 making it a pretty competitively priced option for those looking to upgrade to a new smartphone hey how's it going I'm Joshua from 91 Tech and I'm wearing contacts for some reason today but also the iPhone 10 are is a phone the iPhone 10 are has been out for over a year now so I think it's worth asking the question is it still worth buying the iPhone 10r is in an interesting

Position on one hands with the specs and general hardware you get with the iPhone 10 R I'd have to say yeah it is worth $5.99 it's an iPhone and so you are paying a bit for the brand but overall the iPhone 10 R is still really nice and for the average user it's gonna be more than enough but on the other hands the iPhone 11 is only $100 more at $6.99 and so while I think the 10 R is worth it I also think that the 11 is better value obviously with the 11 you get better specs which is always nice but most importantly you get the better cameras including an ultra wide camera which is

A pretty big upgrade over the 10 R if the ultra wide camera doesn't sound that appealing to you or you really need to save some cash the 10 R is still worth buying or of course you can find it online for cheaper in the used market I got this one for 500 Canadian off of Craigslist which equates to about three hundred and eighty bucks u.s. that's a pretty good find and I think it'd be reasonable for you know you to find a similar price if you look around enough but is the iPhone 10 are worth buying yes is the iPhone 11 more worth buying yes but let's back up here and talk more

About the iPhone 10 are starting with the design the 10 are features glass on the front and back and comes in many color options so there's something here for everyone personally I really love this coral it's just so unique do yourself a favor and don't be one of those people who get a black or white iPhone 10 are those are the worst kind of people I joke obviously everyone's preferences are different I purposely made sure not to get a white or black iPhone 10 R cuz I wanted something a little more fun but of course that's up to you at least you have choices which

Is nice because of the glass back we do have wireless charging which is great it's also water-resistant and is fast charging capable although the fast charger doesn't come with the phone so you'll have to buy it separately if you want one the front of the phone is the near bezel is plus a knotch look we've come to expect from iPhones since the 10 the bezels are decently thicker than on an iPhone 10 10 s or 11 pro as you can see here beside my 11 Pro max for me it's annoying because I'm used to my 11 pro but if you haven't used a 10 tennis or 11 pro you wouldn't even notice and

Well chances are if you're looking to buy an iPhone 10 are you probably haven't used any of those phones the display is six point one inches and is CD with a resolution of 8:28 by 1792 and features a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch incoming is a million comments about how the iPhone 10 R is sub 1080p and therefore the phone is terrible look you might have heard something about the 10 R's display being bad but that's really not the case yes the resolution isn't great admittedly but that's why the phone is cheaper this isn't a top-end flagship and for the average

General user it's gonna look great colors look good the screen gets bright for most people that's all that matters can I notice the difference going from my 11 pro max to the 10r yeah I can but within a few minutes I get used to the 10r and plus the 11pro max is like you double the price unless you'd consider yourself a tech enthusiast or someone who's maybe used an OLED panel in the past and know what an OLED panel is the iPhone 10 our screen is fine and most people will not have a problem with it and the benefit to that lower powered

Display is amazing battery life the iPhone 10 R will last you all day and have juice to spare it's really good and so if battery life is important to you this is a good pick up it's significantly better than the iPhone 10 and 10 s and a bit better than the A+ if you're looking for some perspective actually did a comparison between the iPhone 10 R and the iPhone 8 Deni plus if you want to see that by the way link in the description below the iPhone 11 will do better than the 10 R and battery life by like one hour according to Apple so it's safe to say the 10 hour is still

Really good right now and so if battery is a concern it shouldn't be if you're buying the iPhone 10 R this phone also features a face ID which might be new to some people watching this essentially it's 3d maps your face and recognizes you whenever you look at it so you see that red blinking Dodge basically it's trying to find my face I look at it I swipe up and I'm in it's super easy face ID is great personally I've used a lot of biometric systems on a lot of different phones trying them out to face ID is my favorite without a doubt it's fast it's

Reliable and it doesn't work when your eyes are closed the most important thing to a lot of people when it comes to a phone is the camera and well yes the 10r isn't as good as the hundred dollar more iPhone 11 it still is pretty legit and can take some nice photos it has a 12 megapixel rear sensor and can shoot video in up to 4k at 60 frames per second you can see some photos here they're pretty nice and it's easy to say that you won't have a problem with the camera it's just as good on the iPhone 10 s and again while it's not as good as the iPhone 11

It still will take a great photo the biggest thing is you do only have that one camera lens and won't be able to take ultra white photos and you see the difference between the normal lens and the ultra wide lens here this ultra wide pic was taken by the 11pro but it's the same cameras in the iPhone 11 and yeah that ultra wide camera is the coolest feature of the new iPhone 11 again personally for me a hundred bucks would be worth it to get it but if it's out of your price range or you're not worried about the camera maybe the ultra wide doesn't appeal to you the iPhone 10 hour

Can still take great shots it can also take portrait photos although only if people it's not perfect but it generally does a pretty good job and is a really nice feature to have video of course is great as it always is with iPhone and right now you're seeing some 4k 30 footage it's crispy and stabilized really well which is a pretty good combo iPhones been ahead of the game for years when it comes to video so this is pretty much better than any Android you'd be buying right now the selfie camera isn't amazing and the iPhone 11 does significantly improve it but the ten are

Still can take a half decent selfie with seven megapixels you can also take a portrait selfie which is honestly usually pretty hit or miss but at least you do have the option to try it so overall the 10rs camera is of course still really good it's only a bit over a year old what would you expect but if the camera is the most important thing in a smartphone to you and you can afford it I'm gonna say it's worth it upgrade to the iPhone 11 every single time it's just better value for what you get spec wise though this phone is still really darn good with Apple's a12

Chipset and three gigabytes of RAM it runs I was 13 with ease and everything will feel quick and smooth Apple is king when it comes to optimization which means that even though this phone only has three gigabytes of RAM it still really darn fast and will be able to take software updates for much longer than your average Android phone the iPhone 10 are in terms of longevity is a great pick up because it'll get updates for probably at least another four years and if you're worried about speeds or anything I wouldn't be it's great it'll handle anything you throw at it

The iPhone 10 R is still super solid as you would expect only a bit over a year later it starts at $5.99 on Apple's website and is it worth that yeah it is and if you buy this phone right now I think you're gonna really enjoy it but again the iPhone 11 is better value if that all wide camera sounds appealing which for a lot of people I know it will generally speaking I recommend the iPhone 11 over the iPhone 10 our I know this can depend on the country in some places you know the price differences are a lot greater and if that's the case and the iPhone 11

Is unreasonably priced don't worry about it the iPhone 10 R is still a great phone and I have very little doubt in my mind that you'll like it and probably won't regret buying it and of course you can always turn to the used market which is always a good idea you know you save some money again I got this for 380 us which was a pretty good deal and if you look around hard enough you might even be able to find a better deal eBay Craigslist these are a couple places to look Facebook marketplace whatever your local kind of listing site

Is when the iPhone 10 are came out I said that that right there is gonna be the best-selling iPhone over the 10s and I was right it was and there's a reason not everyone needs the crazy top align specs of the best iPhone this phone had the same camera as the 10s and that's what was really important you saved some money for essentially the same phone with a worse display what's not to like and better battery than the 10s was to buy like a lot there's a lot to like here and yeah that's pretty much where I'm gonna end things I think cuz there's not a whole lot more to say phones just

Over a year old of course it's still great do you have an iPhone 10 are are you thinking about getting one or are you leaning towards the iPhone 11 let me know in the comments down below thank you so much for watching if you found this video interesting or helpful maybe hit that like button and consider subscribing for more content just like this you could always follow me over on twitter and instagram at 91 underscore tech if you'd like to for whatever reason and with that all being said i'm josh from ninety one tech and i will see you all next time
