The Truth about the iPhone XR – One Week Later!

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

What's up guys laughs you're on supersize TV and I've had the iPhone 10 off for a week now and in this video I'm gonna be sharing my experience I'm not gonna be going over specs and things like that those have already been covered in my unboxing video which I'll be linking in the cards the less initially starts off by talking about the built in design I've had a lot of people online comparing this to the iPhone 5c and I don't think that's a correct comparison to make because the 5c was very different to the 10r the 5c didn't have the same specs as the flagship device that year which was the

5s the XR is very different and it's also priced quite a bit higher and that's because the 10r does have a very premium built and designed we've got the same glass panels that we've got on the tennis and tennis max so some of the most durable glass out there the biggest difference being is the fact that we've got an aluminium or I know you Americans like to say aluminium band around the 10r instead of the stainless steel on the tennis and tennis max now aluminium is still very premium and some people might actually prefer this to the stainless steel because we have a matte

Finish which does look quite slick and it's not gonna pick up scratches and fingerprints as much as stainless steel is of course thinner steel is more durable but I really do think it's gonna come down to personal preference I think the main reason why a lot of people are comparing the 10r to the five Cs is because of the color options you've got six different colors on the 10r now here's the thing in my opinion if you want to go for more of an elegant look then you can go for either the black the white and the product red the private red in my opinion it does look the best

However if you want to go for something more funky more vibrant then we've got the blue there's a yellow on the coral now because those colors are a little bit more flashy to some people they might appear to look a little cheaper it is going to come down to bias and preference it is nice that we've got six different color options to suit your needs however if you do want to be safe I don't want to go for one of the more elegant color options such as the black or white you can always customize the look at a later point using AD brand

Skin who are our channel sponsor that way you don't have to be stuck with the same color you can customize the color and texture of your smartphone as time goes by I'm gonna be leaving a link to them in the scription below now thanks to the glass back the 10r does support wireless charging which works really well and we've got ip67 water and dust resistance we don't have ip68 like the tennis and tennis max what does that actually mean well it means that you're only gonna be able to submerge the 10r into up to one meter of water not two meters like the

Tennis and tennis max how much of a difference is that gonna make to you personally to me doesn't make a massive difference I like to have water and dust resistance in case I have a bit of a spatula or something I'm not somebody who's gonna take this swimming now let's move on to the display which has probably been the biggest talking point around the 10r recently let me just go ahead and say this the tennis and tennis max have much better displays you've got AMOLED technology on those and blacks are deeper colors are more vibrant contrast ratios are much much higher on

Those displays in comparison the 10r has an LCD display Apple called this a liquid Retina display and here's the thing although it's not as good as a tennis and tennis max it's not a bad display the colors are very very accurate Apple have said that this is the most color accurate LCD display in the industry and I would have to agree with them we've also got a very similar design language on the 10r compared to the tennis and tennis max so we've got small bezels all around with a notch now these bezels are slightly larger compared to the tennis and tennis max

This is something that I personally noticed just because I'm coming from a 10 s Max is it something that you're gonna notice well if you're coming to this from something like an iPhone 7 or 7 plus then I think you're gonna really appreciate the screen to body ratio that you get on here which is much higher compared to those devices the only real time I think you'll notice the difference in bezel size is if you actually put this side-by-side with a tennis or tennis max which I don't think many people will be doing now the resolution of the 10r is also lower

Compared to the tennis and tennis max this is something that people have been going crazy online about we've got run about an eight twenty eight thirty P display on this not 1080p now I personally would have liked a 1080p display and I do notice that this display is not as sharp compared to something like the tennis and tennis max which is what I'm coming from but how much is a regular person gonna notice this difference I don't think very much if you're coming from something like an iPhone 6s or an iPhone 7 then you are not going to notice a

Difference in terms of sharpness because it has the same PPI pixel density 326 I've said this before but if you are somebody who's complaining about the resolution of the 10r then it's very likely that you're currently an Android user and you had no intention of buying the 10r anyway for the people who this is targeted at people who are upgrading from a previous iPhone I don't think this is gonna be an issue right now that we've got past that let's talk about the cameras so the front-facing camera on the 10r is exactly the same as a tennis and tennis mag so you're not going to be

Missing out on anything here you've still got great dynamic range which is something that I had been very impressed with you've still got the portrait mode from the front facing camera with depth controls and you can adjust the blur to the fact it also works pretty well probably not as well as some of the competition out there in terms of edge detection but it's still very very good you've got great improvements in the video side of things so you've got stereo audio recording as well as stabilization now from the front-facing camera not optical stabilization digital

Stabilization but it still works pretty well so if you're somebody who likes the vlog you're gonna really notice the difference on the 10r compared to some of the previous iPhone models now when it comes to the rear facing cameras as you can see we only have a single rear-facing camera not two rear facing cameras like we have on the 10s 10s max but this rear facing camera is the same primary camera that we've got on those devices what does this mean well it means that the 10r has a great wave facing camera it takes really nice shots we've got small HDR once again so

Dynamic range is on point video is also really good you've got 4k up to 60 frames a second dynamic range in video is probably some of the best that you're gonna find out there what you're essentially missing out on is the optical zoom so you're not going to get 2 times optical zoom on the 10r like you've got on the tennis and tennis mags how often do you use zoom on a camera if it's very often then that's something you're gonna have to consider with the 10r if it's something that you don't use often then it's something that you're probably not gonna be too bothered about

The other difference is portrait mode so you do have portrait mode on the 10th R but it only the one lens he actually works really well in my opinion edge detection is definitely good not as good as a 10s and 10's Maxo my opinion of course with those phones you do have the additional camera for depth information and portrait mode in the 10 are only works with people so you're not going to be able to use it with objects and animals and things it is going to be looking for people to apply that blur effect in the background for now I went out and did

Some test shots to compare this to the 10s max and the main difference that I noticed was in terms of the angle of view with the 10s and 10's max you are going to be using the optical zoom lens for the portrait mode this is approximately 50 mm in terms of photography now without going into too much detail if you speak to a portrait photographer they'll normally shoot portraits at 50 mm or above and that's just more of a flattering angle our eyes also see roughly around 50mm as far as I'm aware now if you shoot wider than 50mm things can still look good but

Generally things will start to look a little bit distorted towards the sides and you be a little bit stretched towards the sides too if you look at this comparison of a portrait mode between the 10s Max and the 10 are personally I prefer the 10s max image much more it's more of a flattering image with the 10r although it looks pretty decent it is a little bit stretchy with the size it makes me look a lot slimmer which I personally don't like this is something that you might personally like but generally speaking in my opinion you

Will be getting better portraits on the 10s and 10's max compared to the 10 are moving on the 10 R has a lot of the features that you've got on the 10s and this is one of the other reasons why you can't really compare it to something like the iPhone 5c we've got the same Apple a12 Bionic chip inside here which is super fast so performance on this has been absolutely great we've got less run on the 10r compared to the 10s I don't think the general person is gonna really notice this performance is very very good and you've also got face ID the exact same face ID that you've got the

10s and it works really really well just check this out is so fast and snappy and it's also very very secure and thanks to those face ID senses you've got an emoji and me these are things that you didn't have on something like the iPhone 8 and 8 plus and with iOS 12 and the lack of a home button you do have all your swipe gestures so you can swipe up to go home you can swipe down from the right hand side for the control center and you can swipe down from the left hand side for notifications however there is no 3d touch on the tent or something you've

Got on many other iPhones including older ones like the iPhone 7 and 7 plus now it's gonna come down to how important 3d touch is for you you do have haptic touch which works in certain areas so for instance in the control center I can push down a little longer on something like the brightness toggle here soon give me a slight vibration to give me that feedback and it seems to work okay but I can't press down on icons and things like that that does not work personally the area where I've used 3d

Touch most is within the keyboard and that is to move the cursor around this is something that I really liked really touch for now you've still got a version of this here on the 10r what you have to do is press down on the spacebar and you can still move your cursor around like you can do in 3d touch so personally 3d touch is not something that I've missed much using the 10r but it might be something that you do miss on something to bear in mind now let's talk about battery life I have been using this for a week so I can't give a definitive opinion on a battery life this is

Something that I think we need to use a device for a longer period time for around a month before you can really assess the battery life but in my experience of using this for a week the battery life has been very very good better than the 10s max so I've been able to get through the full day using 10 all pretty easily and I think most people will be able to do that as well and that's one of the advantages that you get with the 10 are in comparison to the tennis and tennis max you are not pushing out as many pixels as you are doing on those devices and this is where

That low resolution actually has a benefit you might notice that on many Android smartphones they have a low resolution setting which helps with battery life and most people that I speak to that users devices use a low resolution because battery life is very very important and if battery life is important to you then the compromise of a low resolution might be something that you're willing to accept here on 10r so that is my summary of the 10r after using it for week who do I think detent are is full well we have to look at the price the

Ten our stats are around seven hundred and fifty pounds for seven hundred and fifty dollars which is two hundred and fifty less compared to the 10s is the 10s a better phone overall yes it totally is I think especially when it comes to that display and if you're somebody who appreciates a better display like I do and you can afford that higher price tag then I would advise go for the 10s however if you're somebody who appreciates better battery life doesn't necessarily need a zoom camera uh doesn't mind a lower resolution LCD display and wants to save

A bit of money then I think the 10r is a great option 750 pounds is still a lot of money and not considered budget by any means however it is lower compared to one thousand pounds now if you're on the Android side I know you're gonna be going crazy in the comments and yes there's lots of Android options available that are cheaper than this offering better displays and such but as I've said previously if you're somebody who's currently using Android then chances are you are not considering the 10th ah anyway in my opinion the 10r is targeted to iPhone users who are maybe

Considering upgrading from something like the iPhone 7 maybe be 7 plus maybe the 6s or 6s plus and if you are one of those people and you don't have the budget to go for something like the tennis or tennis max which are very expensive devices then the 10r is going to be a great option and in my opinion the 10 art is gonna be the most popular iPhone of this year that's what I think anyway what do you guys think all that the iPhone 10 are definitely drop me a comment below and let me know your thoughts I hope you enjoyed this video and found it useful if you did then do
