iPhone XR - First Impressions
When the iPhone X and the latest iPhone XS are too small for us, and the XS MAX is too big, Apple
The XR has a liquid crystal screen instead.Apple-referenced OLED screen - Liquid Retina HD. This screen has a lower resolution and does not support 3D Touch. Another difference is the other (less durable) glass on the back of the case (as in X). The XR has one camera at the back, so it doesn’t offer us optical zoom. The XR is waterproof, but it supports another, weaker IP67 standard (i.e., for example, X). The XR also has a slower LTE modem, but has a 128 GB version (except 64 and 256).
However, it should be remembered that the iPhone XR in tests of foreign sites is compared, for example, with Pixel 3, and so on. That means one thing - XR is the flagship from the top shelf.
Of course, this does not interfere with the online hatermix it with dirt, because, for example, it has “LCD syphilis” or “ONLY one camera in 2018”. Of course, everyone also complains about his “thieves'” price.
However, this does not change the fact that the iPhone XR is currently one of the best smartphones in the world, which competes in the market directly with the iPhone from the latest XS series,

Design - Grade 5
When it comes to design, the XR matchesThe design of last year’s X. iPhone. Poverty is only slightly smaller than the colossus XS MAX of this year. It has a thicker frame around it and thicker. The glass back of the case differs primarily in its colors. There are 6 of them to choose from - (PRODUCT) RED, yellow, white, coral, black, blue. The most beautiful, probably yellow.
Unlike the X and XS series, the main camera introduces itself. It protrudes from the housing in the same way, but it is round and not connected in the “kit” with the LED diode.
