iPhone Xs Max (left) and iPhone Xr
It’s worth starting with the fact that The Verge reporters called the review very optimistic: “Better than just good.” And this is about the iPhone Xr. The edition calls the main difference between the more expensive iPhone Xs and X R .
if the screen is the highest priority for you and you want an “with natural black” OLED matrix, get ready to pay 250 , and you will get it.
Otherwise, Xr is: the same A12 Bionic processor, support for Smart HDR, the same gesture control as Xs and Xs Max, support for wireless charging. Moreover, X R will support work with two SIM-cards (alas, not in Russia).
What I liked: IPS-display differs from the previous generation iPhones for the better. Apple cunningly disguised the display backlight by putting a small tint layer on the glass of the device – a tribute to the design and attention to detail is still in the company’s blood. The display is protected by the same glass as the iPhone Xs.
Size X R is ideally located between the entire line of Apple smartphones. Just between the dimensions of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus (and related devices).
The X R has an impressive battery, it is larger than the X and Xs. Autonomy is enough for 13 hours of active use.
Strange, but there are still no original cases for the iPhone Xr. But the protective glass of the back cover in the iPhone Xr is borrowed from the iPhone X, that is, in terms of impact resistance it is clearly inferior to the iPhone Xs and Xs Max.
And the iPhone Xr turned out to be a good, if not the best offer from the point view of price / quality ratio. Given that the iPhone Xs and Xs Max outperform any Android flagship in performance, X R is unlikely to yield to top iPhones.
Yes, X R 3 GB, not 4 GB of RAM. But at the same time, the iPhone Xr has lower display resolution, which does not unnecessarily load the processor when rendering the interface.
X R has an LCD display. Apple chose this matrix solely to reduce cost, but, at the same time, did not save on the touch sensor. It operates at a frequency of 120 Hz and provides excellent user interaction with the interface without any delay (not to be confused with the refresh rate of the display).
In conclusion, I would like to say that the iPhone Xr is an excellent smartphone that costs every dollar spent. It is good in everything: from the camera to the body and display.
Face ID works no worse than iPhone Xs , the cameras are gorgeous. frontalka, so generally identical. There is support for wireless charging, good water resistance, autonomy.
In the future, unlike iPhone Xs, X R will not receive support for the new ranges of cellular networks that they plan to launch in the United States. However, for Russia this is hardly relevant.
And again, the too slow power supply, which Apple impudently puts in a kit with a new smartphone, annoys. The thickness of the case increased compared to the iPhone Xs was a little more upset. But for many it will be an advantage on the contrary.
