Did not like the battery life of XS, so I took care of it for the benefit of an XR.
XR feels strangely like a better phone, even though it is obviously easier and cheaper.
+ Battery time. Finally okay. Plus Standard without having to have Plus Size. Usually has 60-70% left at bedtime.
+ Screen. Is the paper worse than both X and XS, but for my part I do not notice it at all because I do not compare. This is a positive aspect because I simply experience the display as excellent.
+ Face ID. Works clockwise and definitely does not want to go back to touch ID.
+ Storage. Took 128gb, but had surely managed me at 64gb. Nice to beat 16gb because it was frankly sad.
+ Price. Still expensive for 10k, but many thousands of bills are cheaper than the flagship and you get about the same experience.
+ Camera. Takes some pictures at work and sometimes on the kids and has nothing to remark on. X / XS has a proven camera better, but I do not use it in such a way that it limits me at all. I had coped with the camera in an IP7.
-Vikten. Heavy like a foolish cast iron pan. Type. No problem for a big boy like me. ;-)
Right now, this is the only cell phone I can imagine using face ID and good battery life, so I can only recommend it.
And I know there's always someone who's going to complain that Apple's phones are expensive, but it's actually ALL serious flagship now, so drop the sack and get into the game.
