The XR is in a weird position. If you are deep into the apple ecosystem and want to upgrade from a older iPhone then the XR makes sense.

However If you are cross shopping it with an android phone, the value proposition of the XR flies out out of the water. Even a $200+ android phone will have a 1080p screen and apple is dumb to put a 720p screen on a phone in 2018.

I guess potential XR buyers just want the apple logo but cant afford or justify the more expensive iPhone models
Lower screen resolution means longer battery life. For some, it's a big deal

Instead of cutting down the screen can't apple put in a bigger battery?

I have a xiaomi redmi note pro 3 that has a 4050Mah battery and a 1080p screen and Its battery can last 2 days.

Its almost too obvious apple is trying hard to differentiate the XR and the more expensive models. They went so far to the point of finding a 720p screen to put into the XR to prevent it from cannibalising the XS(max) sales.

You can't find a 720p screen in any new phone sold today. Maybe in the bargain bin $100ish phone department.

it has the same ppi as iphone 8 which already looks crispy. not to forget, it has the same processor as XS as opposed to other brands use lower tier processors

People like us who browse forums and scrutinise the specs are actually the minority.

At the end of the day, the general consumer will see it in a store and choose to buy it without a second glance at the specs.

This XR will be here to stay for a long run.

This year you won't see many differences to the internals but from next year onwards, it will be A13 on the new iPhone X series and A12 on the XR.

This guy is right. I bought 4 sets of XS max for my folks myself and sis. Other then myself none of my family members even know what the specs are. If u tell my folks there is a A12 bionic supersonic ultrasonic titanic 7mn CPU, they won’t even know what’s the difference.

True story here, my family all came from iPhone6+ to xs max. my sister wanted to use her headphones. She couldn’t find the port to plug it in, she actually removed the phone from her casing just because she thought the casing was blocking the port. My mother because of poor eyesight has increase the font size under accessibility to gigantic size so her text msgs on WhatsApp can be view 1km away, so a 4K resolution to display more text for reading without scroll doesn’t matter to her. They all however note that the photos taken and displayed on the xs max look distinctly better then the iPhone 6.

So to the folks out there deciding between the XS or XR, do yourself a favor like the guy and get a iPhone X. Then u solve 2 problems

1) the price
2) the specs

U get an OLED with high resolution and it still cost less then a XR.

Real world A11 and A12 has no difference.

Selling locally a fraction of the cost of the phone though.

I came from iphone 7 to xs
Thought about the XR but time to recontract and XR is bigger than xs so bought xs

XR is cheaper than xs so even if in the event can exchange I donít know if they will refund the difference
