iPhone XR hands-on: Colorful phones make a great first impression

We take an early look at what sets the iPhone XR apart from the XS.

Our full review of the iPhone XR is here. How does it compare to the iPhone XS and Pixel 3? We answer that and much more in our exhaustive review. 

When Apple announced its new batch of iPhones last month, the iPhone XS and XS Max were the stars of the show and first to go on sale. Now the spotlight turns to the iPhone XR. The colorful new sibling in the iPhone family shaves a few features from the XS spec sheet. But its price -- starting at $749 (£749, AU$1,229) -- is considerably less, too. 

Apple invited me to check out the iPhone XR for a brief test drive this week. Check out my first impressions in the video above.

The iPhone XR is available for preorder now, and it hits stores on Friday, Oct. 26.

Until then, check out our previous coverage of the iPhone XR:
