Apple iPhone XR Design Review

Share this

Last year Apple decided to add three handsets to their range, and the iPhone XR was among them. This handset has been designed to be a cut-down phone that offers a lower price tag in order to make Apple technology more accessible to more of the population, and it has been really well received. It seems that the world at large was ready for such an offering and already rave reviews are pouring in.

Having had a good look at what is on offer we have to say that this is some serious power and despite having some features cutdown it still packs a considerable punch and the replacement technology is more than good enough to make this one of the most wanted handsets this year. So what does it look like?

Sized to the Max

In terms of size, the iPhone XR sits between the other two new phones and comes in at an impressive 6.1inches. There has been a wave of interest in using phones for gaming and streaming video, and Apple has responded by offering two of their new phones in what we would consider to be plus size.

Like their other newer handsets this is an infinity screen which seems to be the way things have evolved now, and therefore there is no bezel, just the notch at the top with the front-facing camera, and it looks good.

The front and back of the handset are made of glass, which has been toughened and finished with a banded of aluminium around the edges. In a playful move not often seen Apple has decided to offer the iPhone XR in a range of colours that are deep and vibrant. You can choose from six colours: Red, Coral, Blue, Black, Yellow and White.

Stunning Finish

The iPhone XR features a stunning Liquid Retina LCD screen and offers the best display ever seen on an LCD screen. Because Apple has decided to the away the fingerprint scanner you will also find FaceID which means that you have the same functionality as the flagship phones. The handset offers both wired and wireless charging, but wireless chargers are not included in the box. On the back of the handset, you will find one camera lease, and the flash and this handset certainly has the look and feel of a high-end phone.

The front of the screen has a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating, and to quote Apple: The iPhone XR display has rounded corners that follow a beautiful curved design, and these corners are within a standard rectangle. When measured as a standard rectangular shape, the screen is 6.06 inches diagonally (actual viewable area is less).

Overall this is one stunning handset that is going to attract a lot of attention simply for being so feature packed and yet not having the massive price tag.
