What will the iPhone XR make to the buyer to be right for him?
Speed and smoothness of action
The September applause for apples is their new mobile chip Bionic A12, developed specifically to drive this year's iPhones, one of the fastest, if not the fastest, smartphone processors ever, was not unreasonable.
The iPhone XR, in which, like the most expensive Xs and Xs Max candidates, the Bionic A12 processor literally flies. There is almost no interruption, camera and settings, switching between Wi-Fi and LTE connections occurs in seconds, and video storage even at the best quality (4K at 60 frames per second) is instantaneous and the camera is ready to continue registration.
Part of the speed credit definitely belongs to the well-known optimized iOS 12 operating system, which, like the iPhone XR at least, works for a while on older devices as well.
We are convinced of this by comparing iPhona XR with borrowed money iPhon 7 Plus from 2016.
Although it has only one lens, the camera is excellent in almost all aspects.
To do this, we already knew after reading the first iPhona Xs and praising its camera, as the iPhone XR, with the exception of an additional lens designed for optical zoom, is almost the same as the camera.
The accuracy of the subject and the taking of photos is extremely fast, depicting the road, except one of the drawbacks, which we will touch a little later, is very good.
Still, it's not as good as taking night girl photos to competitors of the Huawei competitor's P20 Pro, but still great:
Below the line, the overall quality of the photos is excellent and this is partly provided by the iPhone, using the system mode that says Apple Smart HDR. This ensures that certain colors (for example, the blue of the sky) are not too exposed and that the motifs in the foreground are always intensely lit and the shades are realistic.
The Smart HDR works by instructing iPhones to make three photos with different color parameters after triggering the trigger and then merge them into one.

The iPhone XR also offers everything the user needs and what he can get at the moment in the mobile phone market. It can record in analysis 4K with up to 60 frames per second, while 1080p can record slow recordings. There are no new video capabilities in the video recording field Huawei Mate 20 Pro, which will be one of the biggest price competitors of the iPhona XR.
Eleven big "NE" shooting with a smartphone
The "ordinary" LCD screen is better than expected.
One of the main differences between the iPhone XR and the iPhones Xs and Xs Max is the screen. The most expensive models have one that illuminates the image with the help of technology OLED, while the iPhone XR has a classic look in the meantime LCD. At the same time, the resolution and therefore image clarity on iPhones Xs and Xs Max is higher than iPhone XR.
It's true that the iPhonov Xs and Xs Max screens can display better colors and better contrast and are brighter than the screen on the iPhone XR, but the difference is not so much that a user who has cracked when buying one or the other can weigh the scales tab.
Apple has almost certainly incorporated one of the best LCD screens on the iPhone XR, which is currently available. If we put it on the side of the OLED screen, in our case we were the Samsung Galaxy S8 and at the same time we set the maximum brightness and opened the same application, the average user will find it very difficult to notice the difference.
Who could even think that the image on the iPhone XR looks better? That would be decent True tone, which adjusts the color temperature on the screen according to the availability of ambient lighting. When darker in the room, the image on the iPhone XR screen will be "warmer".
What is good to know before going to bed today
Very good battery life
The iPhone XR was first paid up to 100% for the first time on Friday, October 26th, and then we only reconnected it with the remaining 18% of the charging cable until Monday 29th October morning.
The usage time of a smartphone was divided into the example above between the Safari web browser, the Instagram social network, the YouTube app and the use of the camera. The next few days, when the iPhone was pulled harder and softer than the hands, the battery appeared and allowed us about a day and a half which intensive use before the upper graph again showed red.
The iPhona XR battery performance (2.942 hours per minute) falls between the Xs and Xs Max models, but it is longer than the two. The big advantage is probably the above screens – less pixels and lower resolution also means lower power consumption.
Ten big mistakes you make with your smartphone
Good sound quality
The sound when playing music and watching videos or movies can be very powerful, but at the same time still relatively clean, that is, it does not cause distortion and very low tones. In this area, the iPhone XR deserves a clean five, because it is better than most of its contemporaries.
A more colorful offer than for more expensive contemporaries
This item is purely cosmetic and in no way affects our final opinion on the usefulness of a smartphone, but for some customers it is important to have more choices when choosing an external iPhone. The iPhone Xs and Xs Max give the three and the iPhone XR for six.
Price (first time)
When it comes to iPhones, the price is a very controversial issue at the last moments. The iPhone XR is the cheapest family member of the new iPhones, but in a 256GB gigabyte of data storage, it costs only 40 euros less than the equivalent performance iPhone 7 Plus, 2016 the best and most expensive iPhone.
Compared to the more expensive brothers, ie IPhon Xs and The iPhone Xs Max, which has broken Apple's price list this year, The iPhone XR is quite favorable in the meantime. In Telekom Slovenije, the entry model, that is, the version with 64 gigabytes of data storage, is sold in a non-binding 899 euros. The original models of iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are more expensive for 300 and more than 400 euros.
Such differences in Apple's price with the Xs and Xs Max models simply can not be justified. Smart phones are not only an average but demanding user who wants a very powerful and versatile smartphone, which is very similar for a buyer who wants to have a new iPhone, but also examines the price, instead of XR, decided Xs or Xs Max.

What are the deficiencies that the iPhone XR buyer might do twice to think about before opening the wallet?
Price (second). The "real" minimum price is actually $ 50 higher.
Although the iPhone XR is the cheapest iPhone this year, its entry model is even more expensive than most smartphones than other manufacturers that offer similar performance, such as Huawei P20 Pro in Samsung Galaxy S9 +. The version of 256 gigabytes of storage is more expensive than the most recent Huawei Mate 20 Pro and the monsters of Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
An extraordinary market for the superphone, which will also be available to the Slovenes
It should also be noted that for most users attracted by the iPhone XR, it purchases a 128-model storage space rather than 64 gigabytes. Anyone who shoots a 4K video and pulls a lot of photos will fill the 64 gigabytes very fast, but there is no room for expanding the memory card space. The 128-gigabyte iPhone XR for free sale costs 949 euros.
Anyone who wants to charge the battery quickly will have to pay more, otherwise it will start.
During our test, the iPhone charges about 20 to 100 percent of the charge for about three hours as it does not allow a quick charge of the battery from the "box". This is almost three times larger than the Huawei P20, for example.
Anyone who wants a quick charge should buy a suitable adapter and a special cable to charge and convert the signal from the iPhone's Lightning iPhone to USB-C. The official App online store is over $ 70, or $ 61. The price of an iPhon XR 128 gigabyte has just climbed to thousands.
The difference in the quality of work that the great iPhone user and the owner of the iPhona Xs Max noticed immediately.
The iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max are made of stainless steel and the iPhone XR comes from aluminum. The apprentice immediately commented that he was "less luxurious than my Max" while holding the device.
Although the iPhone XR is far from doing bad or poor quality, it feels really less secure and lighter than the brothers and even the Xs, though it is bigger and heavier than it is. But again, it's just a cosmetic feature that does not affect in any way what can be done with the phone.
Two things, but probably disturbed only by the iPhone's biggest supporters.
– There is no three-dimensional touch, which reveals a multi-choice menu on iPhones Xs and Xs Max, with a slight push of icons. The iPhone XR solves it in a different and more limited way: light presses allow you to use some shortcuts, such as turning on the lock screen lock. Anyone who did not have an Apple phone and did not use the 3D Touch feature is very likely not to miss.
– Portrait capture mode on iPhone XR only recognizes people, but not animals, objects, trees, food and so on. For this reason, the photo in portrait mode with the iPhone XR is a little limited, as the best effect of the blurred background can only be achieved when people are photographed.
