iPhone XR Review in 2022: 3 Years Later
iPhone XR is the third iPhone released this year, following iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. While the two iPhone XS models are nearly identical in size, the iPhone XR is a significant departure from the iPhone X series.
iPhone decided to manufacture mid range smartphones starting from iPhone XR, then iPhone 11 and iPhone 12, now currently iPhone 13.
The iPhone XR starts at KWD 165.040 in Kuwait, less than the base iPhone XS. There’s now a lower resolution LCD screen, the body is getting heavier, and it’s aluminum and there’s only one camera on the back. The same overall design of the iPhone X series, the same powerful X12 A12 Bionic chipset, the same TrueDepth camera with a faster Face ID system, the only one behind the same main 12-megapixel sensor on the back of the camera XS.
The iPhone XR also has six colors, the most colors Apple has ever had on the iPhone in the past and this trend continues till now with iPhone 11, 12 and iPhone 13.
- Minimal bezels
- IP67 rated resistance against dust and water up to 30 minutes at 1.5 meters
- ProRAW format gives you more control over your photos
- Improved portrait mode than iPhone 8.
- No headphone jack.
- Same pixel density as iPhone 4 i.e. 326ppi.
- Non-expandable storage.
1. WHAT’S INSIDE THE BOX
- The Phone itself.
- Pretty long USB to Lightning Cable.
- Charging Brick (5 watts).
- Wired Earpods
- User Manual and paper works + Apple Sticker
The packaging is where the iPhone XR and iPhone XS are the same. Both have similar accessories, including a 5-watt charger, Lightning to USB cable, and EarPods with a Lightning connector. It’s very simple, and while it avoids waste, we wish Apple had at least one watt charger, like the 12 watt model that came with the iPad or the 10 watt model that came with some iPhones.
- Phone Weigh at 194g
- The phone’s dimensions are 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3 mm
- It is IP67 dust/water resistant
- Lighting Port for charging
- Front and Back Gorilla Glass glass protection
The original design of the iPhone XR is similar to the iPhone XS, and this is the key message that Apple wants to give you: this is an iPhone X series device.
The iPhone XR comes in six new colors. You have your classics that are black and white. Black has a similar black frame, while white does not have a silver or raw aluminum frame.
The front bezel remains black regardless of the color of the back. The phone box shows the colors of the internal phones and each phone comes with a matching wallpaper. The same trend Apple has followed till now in 2022.
The iPhone XR is bigger than the iPhone XS. The iPhone XS has never been particularly small, but it’s still fairly small and easy to hold. The iPhone XR isn’t small or particularly small, and in most people’s opinion it’s a great phone.
Also, the iPhone XR is thicker and heavier than the iPhone XS. All things considered, the iPhone XR is somewhat similar to the Plus model, although we don’t think many people will have a problem with it.
The iPhone XR also has a different screen. While the iPhone XS uses an OLED panel, the iPhone XR uses an LCD panel. Which was followed till iPhone 11. iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 have better flagship OLED screens. If an LCD screen is a deal breaker for you then you should consider iPhone 12 or newer iPhone 13.
One interesting aspect of recent iPhones is that they no longer have any of the serial numbers or FCC and CE logos on the back. All you get is the Apple logo and the iPhone logo, and that’s it. iPhone XR is rated IP67 for dust and water resistance. This means it’s not as water resistant as the iPhone XS and can be hung for 30 minutes up to 1m instead of 2m deep.
Overall, the iPhone XR looks and feels nearly identical to 2018’s flagship smartphone. It’s not as polished as the iPhone XS, but it’s a pretty phone that offers the one of the widest color gamut options.
- The size of the display is a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina IPS LCD.
- The pixel density is around ~326ppi (828 x 1792 pixels)
- The screen ratio is 19.5:9 (~79.0% screen-to-body ratio)
The iPhone XR has a 6.1-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1792 x 828. This gives it a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch, which is similar to the iPhone 8 and earlier small-screen iPhones but smaller than the iPhone big size phone (401 PPI), iPhone X, and XS and XS Max (458 PPI).
Apple calls this the Liquid Retina HD display because it’s LCD, Retina, and HD, and Apple likes to display those silly marketing messages.
In addition, the screen features a contrast ratio of 1400:1 and supports DCI-P3 wide color and Apple True Tone technology, which adjusts the color temperature based on ambient light. What you don’t get on this screen is hardware support for Dolby Vision, HDR-10 (software support only), and 3D Touch.
iPhone 13 has a much better display now 2022. The OLED super retina display is way better than LCD Liquid retina. But all that comes at a more expensive price point.
- This Phone comes with an A12 Bionic chip inside it.
- Talking about the core: 2Nos of 2.5 GHz Vortex and 4Nos of 1.6 GHz Tempest at 7nm process.
- 3GB of RAM
- The storage available options are: 64,128, and 256GB.
The A15 bionic that is found in newer iPhone 13 phones are 50% faster than iPhone XR’s A12 Bionic chip.
In real use, the iPhoneXR works just fine. With a few exceptions like cameras and augmented reality, few of these phones can make the most of 2018’s hardware. Anyway, 3GB of RAM will be a ball-neck in the future, but that’s not an issue soon as iOS generally has good memory management.
We also wanted Apple to improve the performance of FaceID in XR. The TrueDepth camera system is the same, but thanks to the A12 Bionic’s faster, newer and faster Secure Enclave algorithms, the camera can process facial data much faster. But if you compare side by side with the beast iPhone 13 the Face ID feels a bit slower. But in regular use it works just fine.
5. BATTERY LIFE
- It has a 2942mAh capacity battery.
- Fast charging up to 15W
- Qi wireless charging
The iPhone XR has a 2942mAh battery, which is larger than the iPhone XS but smaller than the iPhone XS Max.
However, since most of the iPhone XS Max’s extra battery capacity is used to power its large OLED display, according to Apple’s battery life, the iPhone XR actually has the best battery life of the three new iPhones. ‘year.
The overall battery life of the iPhone XR was very good. We don’t have exact usage statistics, and Apple has also made it impossible to see usage since the last charge in the iOS 12 update, as it now shows usage in the last 24 hours instead.
However, according to some rough calculations, we get 6 to 7 hours of screen time and around 20 to 22 hours of using this phone. Even after a day of photography, navigation, social media, calling and public use, the iPhone XR’s battery level was around 15% at the end of the day. This phone can be used normally and all day without worrying about death at the end of the day.
- Wide camera lens: 12 MP, f/1.8, 26mm, 1/2.55″, 1.4µm, PDAF, OIS
- Selfie camera lens: 7 MP, f/2.2, 32mm (standard) SL 3D, (depth/biometrics sensor)
The iPhone XR has a 12-megapixel f1.8 camera with an OIS and a four-color LED flash on the back. This camera can record up to 4K60 video. On the front is the Apple TrueDepth camera system with a 7 megapixel f2.2 camera and 1080p60 video.
The single rear camera is one of Apple’s compromises on the iPhone XR rather than the iPhone XS. However, Apple retains the iPhone XR’s portrait mode, along with the new depth controls introduced on the iPhone this year. Because this is the only difference between the cameras of the iPhone XR and the iPhone XS.
Another difference from portrait mode on the iPhone XR is that it uses the standard wide-angle lens to take portrait mode photos, as it is now the only camera available. By comparison, all other portrait iPhones use a telephoto lens for portrait shots.
In terms of overall image quality, the iPhone XR has the same 12MP base sensor and optics as the iPhone XS, and the image quality is the same. Images from the iPhone XR were sharp with great detail and well-controlled noise levels. Images were well lit and had good contrast. Somewhat flatter, more natural images are also ideal for subsequent manual post-processing.
The colors were also generally good. iPhones tend to have one of the most recognizable colors of any smartphone camera, especially on skin tones, which can have an orange tint that doesn’t look particularly appealing.
The selfie camera is the same 7MP f/2.2 camera you find on the iPhone XS, so the phones are similar in terms of cameras. The picture quality is also similar. In low light, the camera may use the so-called retina flash. This flash causes the screen to illuminate your face upward in a specific color and provides a more comfortable skin tone depending on the color of the light available.
If you are a professional photographer then we will recommend you to buy iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 Pro for best image quality. You have to pay a lot of extra money for that but believe me it is worth it.
- The 3.5mm headphone jack is not present.
Apple has upgraded the speaker hardware. After introducing stereo speakers to the iPhone 7, Apple has improved as a strong voice on the iPhone 8 and X.
The new speaker system is equivalent to the basically inclusive sound effects permanently. The sounds coming from speaker hardware are projected to make a broader area reach. This enhances the 3D sound when listening to stereo effects.
The speakers deliver an extremely clean and clear sound even at maximum volume. Apple applies sound leveling when you turn up the volume, but the sound never changes as drastically as it does with most smartphone speakers. Even if you play them at full volume, the sound is louder without a significant change in frequency response compared to lower volumes.
iPhone XR ships with iOS 12 and can be upgradable to iOS 15.4.1. iPhone XR is expected to be upgraded till 2025.
iPhone XR is priced at 165.000 KWD in Kuwait. The availability is an issue but if you find the deal lower than this price then you should definitely buy it.
10. FINAL VERDICT
The iPhone XR is a great smartphone. The newer iphone 13 is a better option then XR but comes at a higher price point. iPhone XR on other hand is priced less and if you are OK with a single camera system and LCD display on iPhone XR then you should definitely go for it.
