Apple iPhone XR: Cheapest new iPhone priced at $749
If you're an iPhone shopper, you're going to have several decisions to make this holiday because there's a third iPhone to join the other two.
The iPhone XS and XS Max are joined by the iPhone R, which is coming October 26th.
This phone feels like a combination of the 8, 8 Plus generation with the iPhone X.
So let's take a look at the back of the iPhone XR.
There's a single camera here, not dual camera, that's supposed to provide portrait effects that might still look somewhat like the portrait effects you would expect.
Maybe not the same as the 10S or the 10S Max or the 10, we'll have to see.
Now, on the front, the 10R has a True Depth camera, so it looks like an iPhone 10.
It's a 6.1 inch display, but it's LCD And that is different from the OLED displays on the ten s, ten s max and the ten.
It's a new type of display that's edge to edge, and right now it looks really sharp.
I maean Apple's LCDs have always looked good.
So we have to wait and see how those compare side by side.
There is no 3D Touch, so if you push in here, you are not going to be able to get those pop-out things That you might or might not be using.
Instead there's a haptic response that's still on the screen, which will stand in for something.
So if you notice, the camera is not launching.
But if I press in, I do feel I have to click, and then I open the camera.
So that's pressure sensitive.
It's just not exactly the same as 3D Touch.
Maybe you're not using 3D Touch anyhow so Your mileage may vary on that.
The A12 processor in here sounds like it's gonna be as fast as the 10s and the 10s Max.
So performance wise sounds really promising and it's supposed to get a hour and a half more battery than the iPhone 8 Plus.
The iPhone 10r at 749 still falls in the mainstream to high end territory for phone.
But that extra savings versus a $999 iPhone 10S might be interesting to some people.
How well the performance you miss any of those extra features we'll have to see.
But this LCD display, in this light right here, looks good.
One thing it looks like the 10R lacks is some of HDR features that are on the 10S and the 10S max And how good that looks in terms of display and in terms of photography we're still going to have to see.
But the prices for this $749 and up.
For storage we're looking at 64 gigabyte 128, 256.
On the bottom no headphone jack.
Joining the others.
Of course, lightning and it looks similar to the iPhone 8 and 8plus in terms of the aluminum finish.
The 10R also comes in other colors so if you want to go coral, blue, yellow, project red, those are available as well in addition to white and black.
Do you get this phone?
We don't know yet because its coming out October 26th and the real comparison is going to be Which Iphone do you get?
Well, the feel is good, the size feels very Iphone 8 plus S, and the display, well, it's a low resolution, and the 10s max and the 10 it's a pretty good dpi so it still looks strong.
More to come on that but you're Iphone decision still looms [CROSSTALK]
