IPhone XR Review: The Apple Mobile Phone with the Best Value for Money & Apple



[ad_1]

The cheap iPhone 208 of the Apple XR series hit stores in global markets, including India, in late October, one month after the launch of high-end iPhone XS and XS Max.

The iPhone XR is the most affordable mobile phone of the 2018 series with prices ranging from Rs 76,900 for 64GB, Rs 81,900 for 128GB and up to 91,900 for the 256GB version.

I had used the iPhone XR for more than three weeks. I have to say that it has met my expectations and more than anything, the quality of the camera was a pleasant surprise to me. Here is my critique of the new Apple mobile.

Build quality and looks:

For some iPhone XR vivid color options – white, black, blue, yellow, coral orange, and (PRODUCT) RED reminiscent of the iPhone 5C, but the first ones should never be compared to the latter. The iPhone 5C had a cheap plastic body and the A6-processor was outdated compared to the A7 (with extra co-processor) that appeared in the top brother of the iPhone 5S.

On the other hand, the iPhone XR features aluminum aluminum frame and A12 Bionic, which is the most advanced mobile chipset on the market at this time (more for that later).

The iPhone XR is top-notch in all senses and the same with all the top Android phones.

Yes, the iPhone XR uses an aluminum frame and LCD screen, compared to the stainless steel surgical quality and the OLED display shown in the iPhone XS series, but everything else is top-notch. The frame is made of solid aerospace material and thanks to excellent paint work. is better than any existing Android phone.

In the review unit, the silver frame combines well with the snowy white of the polished shell and even four white two antenna lines each on both the right and left sides also complement the iPhone's excessive coloration.

It also comes with IP67 certifications, meaning the device can survive accidental water splash, rain and also remain underwater for up to 1 meter for about 30 minutes.

Even the screen, the hype is real, the LCD screen like Apple calls the "Liquid Retina Display" is the best we've seen on the same class mobile. To be honest, if you do not have a super-tiny eye, you will not be able to make any distinctive difference when you place it next to the Super Series of the XS series of the OLED series.

However, while we play high resolution videos, we can see the difference in brightness, but the clarity remains almost the same. You can see in the sample comparison image of iPhone XR (top) and iPhone XS Max (below).

Also, due to the use of the LCD screen, the frames are thick compared to the iPhone XS. But, Apple has done a wonderful job of keeping the total thickness thin. In addition to the notch at the top, the rim on all sides is uniform making it more enjoyable than some OLED based rival phones. What I liked most is the chin is very thin, which for me is one of the key aspects that makes the phone look visually appealing.

As far as screen readability is concerned under bright sunlight, iPhone XR excels in this aspect, as I had no problem reading text or viewing multimedia content on the big screen.

Overall, the iPhone XR display experience compared to the iPhone XS (review), there are differences, but they are negligible and you will not miss that much.

Implementation:

As mentioned earlier, the Apple iPhone XR comes with the A12 Bionic chipset the same as we see in the top iPhone XS and XS Max. It comes with 6-core, two high performance, four efficiency cores, said to make the device consume nearly 50% less power than the previous A11 series.

It also comes with an 8-core neural motor, a 4-core graphics processor unit and the new image signal processor. It is capable of performing 5 trillion operations per second.

With such high-end, the iPhone XR really met expectations. It worked impeccably without any sign of delay. He worked smoothly while playing graphics such as the Asphalt 9 series and Augmented Reality (AR) Night Sky applications.

In AnTuTu Benchmarking, it has risen to 3.25,514 units, which is much higher than any Android phone on the market. Be sure that none of the top 2018 Android phones, even with new software updates, will ever be able to come close to the benchmark set by the A12 series.

CAMERA:

For those who do not know, the 12MP iPhone XR's main camera with a wide-angle sensor is the same as the XS XS but does not have the secondary zoom lens that offers optical zoom. Due to this problem, the iPhone XR will lose 2x optical zoom and also two portrait-light stage and mono stage stage options.

However, the iPhone XR receives some stunning high quality images. The credit must go to the well-optimized ISP of the A12 Bionic chipset and also the iOS 12. With the arrival of iOS 12.1, it can now capture real-time portrait images both front and back.

Yes, the main camera can not capture a non-human face with the Portrait mode, but in normal mode with Smart HDR turned on, it still gets beautiful snaps. In the background, scene information naturally blurred, without making it look like a photo shot [Check out the Praying Mantis and the tiny shoot on the Christmas tree bark, in the images-slide below].

As for the 7MP FaceTime front camera, it's the same as the iPhone XS series. It gets beautiful introverted and comes with all five portrait options – natural light, studio lighting, contour light, stage lighting and mono scene lighting that will help you capture high quality single or group selfies photos to post on the social media channel or to add DP.

Like the iPhone XS Series, the XR is one of the best camera phones to record video on the market. It comes with four microphones, meaning that users can take 4K or Full HD 1080p video with stereo audio recording.

Also, thanks to advanced camera hardware and biometric sensor, Face ID works better and faster than the original iPhone X.

Battery:

According to reports in the media, the Apple iPhone XR comes with 2.942mAh, which is said to be more than the general iPhone XS. That being said, this aspect is very subjective, as it depends on how much time the user spends on the phone.

This review of battery life is based on the use of the author during the active hours from 5:30 to 10:00 pm. During the tests, it consistently provided battery life throughout the day with just over 20% juice left before I can retire in bed. During my active hours, I usually browse the Internet for the latest news, go through social media channels for multimedia consumption, watching the effects of cricket through the sports application while moving between office and home (about two and a half hours every day – and while I'm in the office, I use it for gambling, sharing text and multimedia content in messenger, voice calls and other day-to-day activities . I must admit that personally I do not play games on phones, but for test purposes I played for a little over 15 minutes.

But, it is really sad that Apple has not packaged a fast charger in the iPhone XR retail box. It is always necessary to fully charge the mobile with the general charger to which it is transported.

Also, as there is no reason why the AirPower wireless charging cushion comes on the market, consumers can buy third-party certified Qi chargers for the iPhone XR.

eSIM:

With the arrival of iOS 12.1, the eXIM feature of the iPhone XR has been activated, which means that consumers can add a second personal phone number to Apple's mobile phone. In India, Airtel and Reliance Jio offer the service.

You can save more than one eSIM on your iPhone, but you can only use one at a time. You can go to eSIMs by tapping Settings> Honeycomb> Honeycomb drawings and touching the drawing you want to use. Then tap Enable this line.

Final thoughts:

There is no doubt that Apple has cut corners to the iPhone XR to make it more affordable than the iPhone XS series, but the difference in user experience is very negligible. The first is safe in all senses. even the only rear-view camera with wide angle lens and the magical iOS 12 software (even v12.1), the resulting images are perfect day or night.

The front camera is the same as the iPhone XS and gets good on itself. Add to the fact that Face ID works fast and has a lower False Rejection Rate (FRR) compared to iPhone X (2017).

In addition, it has the same A12 Bionic chipset as the iPhone XS, beats all Android smartphones in terms of performance.

It also offers an exceptionally long battery life and I think it is the best of the three new iPhones that have been launched. The only problem is that there is no fast recharger in the retail box, which Apple should seriously consider adding to the next repeat in 2019.

Advantages:

  • Robust and excellent construction quality
  • Good show
  • Apple A12 Bionic-Best mobile chipset in the industry
  • Apple iOS 12-safer mobile operating system
  • Long-lasting battery
  • ESIM has set a new standard for dual SIM phones as it is easy to turn on and allows the iPhone XR (also the iPhone XS & Max) to store multiple SIM card details and easily switch between them.

Disadvantages:

  • Without a fast charging cable, you need to charge the iPhone XR with a regular power adapter, which comes with the retail box.
