iPhone XR Review: Pros & Cons!

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

Hey guys what is going on this is AI Apple geek this is the iPhone 10 R now let me just say first off there's a lot of controversy around this device for being too expensive for a budget iPhone but today I want to really look at what are some of the things it offers what are some of its shortcomings and really break it down if you're trying to buy this device okay before we get started let's just take a few seconds to admire this awesome bright red slap a case like this on it and man you got a spider-man iPhone this one in particular is by rinky no this video is not sponsored I just really like their stuff man this

Takes me back it's like my childhood in two colors so the first thing you're gonna notice when you pick up one of these is the new size this is a different new size we have never seen a size like this on an iPhone this is right in between the 10s and the 10s Mac but in terms of the older iPhones is definitely more of a plus sized iPhone and then the smaller one just take note there's probably gonna be a slightly bigger bulge in your pants as well as it being more bulky if you swap a case on it so if you're upgrading from a smaller iPhone definitely keep that in mind

Okay so some of the pros of the bigger size first of all a bigger size means a bigger battery bigger display means more enjoyment over a longer period of time in fact this iPhone has the best battery life out of all the iPhones ever is because it has an LCD display not omit it has to push fewer pixels therefore it actually last longer than the iPhone 10s max so if you're looking for the most amount of battery you can get out of an iPhone this is the one to go for okay so some of the cons of the bigger size common first impressions are that it's thick and it's heavy but

Because the back is made of glass you're going to feel that it's gonna be heavier than the aluminum designs that you might be coming from okay next up let's talk about the camera first of all it's absolutely incredible ok you can get amazing shots that weren't possible on the previous iPhones including the iPhone 10 the back lens here is basically the same wide-angle lens as the iPhone 10s so you're getting all the new improvements from that phone so like the iPhone 10 will take pretty great pictures I mean it's not bad but then the iPhone 10 are just blows it out of

The water okay so another image here from the iPhone 10 and now the 10r and now back to the 10 again you can't unsee it okay so the iPhone 10 is on your left and the iPhone 10 are is on your right even with the front-facing camera across the board the cameras are way better now the only thing you're giving up with a lack of that second lens is portrait mode for objects you can only take portrait modes of people so you can't use it on your dog or your pumpkin spice latte but when you do take a portrait shot it's not cropped in and of course you get that ability to adjust the blur

After you take the picture just like on the 10s honestly not having a full portrait mode is not really a big deal to me I don't use it that often and I think the better picture quality really makes up for that lack of the second camera there's no optical zoom either but again better picture quality kind of offsets that okay let's talk about some general usability I've had this thing for a few days I've been playing around with it one of my gripes with the iPhone 10 last year was that it had that powerful chipset but it seemed like it wasn't

Carrying over in software well this year it does this new chip plus the smoothness of iOS 12 equals one giant slab of butter and I'm not exaggerating in other words don't worry about this thing slowing down now the SIM card slot on the side has been moved of course to accompany that dual SIM functionality but this SIM tray actually works a little bit differently than what we've seen in the other iPhones the sim card no longer can pop in and like straight up off the top you actually flip it over and the chip is facing up which is pretty interesting and later on if you

Have a supported carrier you're now gonna have a SIM card at all because it's gonna be built right into the phone which allows for a second network account using a physical SIM card which is pretty nice now if you're down to nitpick the only con I could think of usability wise is that this phone is only like 10 maybe 15 percent faster than the last one but honestly I don't think there's really an argument here okay so the big one the display is it good is it bad is it really fuzzy let's break it down so the display resolution is 1792

By 828 with a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch okay so yeah that is technically below 1080p standards but before you go smashing your keyboard in the comments hear me out all right so do I think Apple could have done a better job with the display resolution of course they could have put in the higher resolution of the iPhone 8 plus into this size of the screen if you're coming from an older iPhone or even a device with a higher resolution the only real difference like in real life difference that you'll notice is lower quality in text and that's about it if you look at

Big bold text letters the edges will seem a little bit smoother and that is literally it you cannot tell anything else apart oh but can you watch 1080p video on it yeah yeah just like you can on all the other iPhones oh but I've met the display is really bad when you're watching you know it's blurry and all that but the differences here are honestly really hard to spot even after a year with using my iPhone 10 I have to look really really close to spot any sort of difference between these two displays now since this is an LCD panel and not an OLED panel you will also get

The advantages of having an LCD it's not as prone to water damage there's no color shifting or risk of burning out the display and if you have sensitive eyes this is gonna be much easier on your eyes especially at low brightnesses more info down below but no matter which demographic you're in I think we can all agree that the iPad displays and the MacBook Pro displays all look pretty awesome yet both these devices have a lower pixel count than the new iPhone 10 are the iPad pros come in at 264 pixels per inch and the MacBook Pros come in at 224 so because

There are so many other factors that goes in to the quality of a display the argument of pixel count equals screen quality just got thrown out the window now another big con of the display there is no 3d touch okay I did mention this in my iPhone se review a long time ago just phone for about two months now and I really don't miss 3d touch but that was two years ago okay and since then I've started using 3d touch on my phone a lot to peek and pop on Instagram and to get other shortcuts you you can no longer do that on the iPhone 10 are so if you've been using 3d touch

You're not gonna get that anymore if you don't use 3d touch you don't even know what it is then this phone is gonna work just fine for you to wrap up the iPhone 10 art is what it is it's a cheaper version of the thousand dollar iPhone 10 with the new features from the iPhone 10 s so is this phone worth buying in my opinion yeah it kind of is the 10r offers the same level of future-proof ability in other words value over time as the iPhone 10 S which costs almost $300 more you may not get gigabit LTE but at least you won't get dropped Wi-Fi what do you

Think about this device let me know in the comments don't forget to hit that iPhone 10 our colored subscribe button say hi to my dog sugar and until our next communion peace
