  • Nick Hansbauer
    Nick Hansbauer 10 months ago

    Great overview, thanks folks! - If I upgrade, I'm strongly leaning towards the XR. I don't mind the software only portrait mode, but I might end up missing 3D touch. (I use that feature a LOT.) Does anyone here have experience with the haptic touch? Also out of curiosity… How does the non-software portrait mode work, what are the technicalities behind that? Does one camera keep the image sharp whilst the other blurs everything and you see a composite of the two? Thanks in advance

    Yugi Boi 10 months ago

    I have the IPhone XS max, but I'm thinking about returning it though. Secondly if they would've made the green then I probably would be rocking the xr but they got black and red WTH they brought back four of the 5c colors except one

  • Randall Collins
    Randall Collins 10 months ago +1

    Yeah, that's the meaning of life - 1080p videos! 🙄
    Just admit it, you're an Apple hater. Give yourself some peace of mind and just say it. Seriously, do you lose sleep over this? 😂
    Oh, and I'm watching this on my iPad. Retina display. 264 ppi. That's less than what the XR will be. And I watch most things in 720p. Does that bug you?
    You Android fans are spec whores. I can't wait until the XR is compared other Android phones to see how it will be better overall.

      DB HIGHLIGHTS 8 months ago +1

      Randall Collins the xr is not better than most new Samsung’s devices, I’m not bias to Samsung I just have an xr and have compared to my friends note 9.

    The reason I want the iPhone XR over The XS is that they have similar tech but one of them $250 cheaper.

    Anyone knocking the XR display is a joke. 1080p is still possible, just scaled down. IT’S NOT THAT DEEP!

  • Nathan Gilman
    Nathan Gilman 10 months ago

    Honestly I want to go with the XR. I have a Samsung S8 right now and I do love it but I want to switch to an iPhone because my wife has an iPhone and I see all of the things that she is able to do with her family that I can not. Air drop photos, FaceTime, dropping pins and so forth. I am excited to switch to an iPhone and look forward to the XR.

  • Noah Adams
    Noah Adams 10 months ago +1

    Do you really think normies are gonna give a shit about the screen? It’s like $350 cheaper, who the fuck is even gonna notice the screen?

  • ponthea
    ponthea 10 months ago

    Who cares if its 720p but if you have an iphone 10 I don't recommend getting a 10r. The screen quality is just something to deal with if you want a cheaper, better iPhone.

  • Drunk Asian
    Drunk Asian 10 months ago

    Dont buy the iphone xr or xs if you have a recent phone or have a decent phone you dont need it, its more for those people who just wanna catch up with modern phones (no seriously wtf dont buy the phones you already have a good one you dont have to waste like 750 dollars)

  • Enosh Yeluchuri

    People never complained about the iPhone 8 resolution or PPI. The Xr is also releasing at -$50 when compared to the 8+.
    I'm not saying that $750 is cheap, but it just makes no sense to draw the line here and not before...
    I guess people just feel the need to bitch for no reason once in while.
