In 2018, Apple introduced three new smartphones at once, making it even harder to figure out which iPhone to buy. For example, with the iPhone XS and XS Max, everything is more or less clear - the flagship is "smaller" and "larger". But what kind of beast is the iPhone XR?
How the iPhone XS and iPhone XR differ: a detailed comparison
We will compare the iPhone XR (detailed review) with the "regular" iPhone XS without the Max (detailed review) - after all, this is the same iPhone XS, only with a larger screen and a more capacious battery.
BY THEME: Comparison of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max: is there a difference other than size?
Comparison of the displays of the iPhone XS and iPhone XR
The iPhone XR is Apple's most affordable smartphone in 2018. But it got a display with a larger diagonal than the XS model - 6.1 inches versus 5.8 inches. The screen resolution of the iPhone XR is 1792 × 828 pixels, (326 ppi).
As a result, the iPhone XS has become the smallest in the lineup. And don't be fooled by the 0.3-inch difference - the XR is larger than the XS and noticeably.
But the iPhone XS has an OLED display, and the iPhone XR has an "advanced" IPS. As a result, the flagship will have deeper blacks, more "juicy" and bright picture, as well as a higher resolution - 2436 × 1125 pixels (458 pixels per inch) versus 1792 × 828 pixels, (326 pixels per inch). How important is it? Here everyone decides for himself.
PS And yes - the iPhone XR does not and will not have 3D Touch, while the XS version still has it (in detail).
BY THEME: What makes the iPhone XS camera different from the iPhone X: is there a difference?
The new iPhone XR weighs 194 grams. The XS is lighter - 177g Not bad - but compare that to the 138g in the iPhone 7!
Aluminum versus steel
The iPhone XR's bezel is made of aluminum, just like the iPhone 8.
The frame of the iPhone XS is made of the same materials as the "10" - stainless steel. The back cover of both devices is made of glass.

Water resistant iPhone XS and iPhone XR
The XS (IP68 degree of protection) is better - the smartphone can withstand falling into water or any other liquid (for example, beer) to a depth of 2 meters. XR (degree of protection IP67) - only one meter.

Comparison of battery life of iPhone XS and iPhone XR
And here the iPhone XR is head and shoulders above the opponent - 25 hours of talk time versus 20 for the XS. The new "iPhone" with the "R" prefix bypasses the S-model in terms of the time spent on the Internet - 15 hours versus 12, and for video playback - up to 16 hours versus 14, and for audio playback - 65 hours versus 60.
Why, iPhone XR lasts longer than iPhone XS Max! The performance of both "shovels" is either the same, or slightly better in favor of XR (smaller diagonal and less "voracious" IPS-matrix affects - OLED in iPhone XS consumes more). So if you need a "long-playing" smartphone - no question about the iPhone XR.

Comparison of cameras iPhone XS and iPhone XR
Here the difference is also noticeable - the XS received a dual camera (one lens - wide-angle with f / 1.8 and one telephoto lens with f / 2.4).
XR - single … however, it is the same wide-angle as in the flagship. The XR will feature Portrait Mode, which previously only appeared on Apple smartphones with dual cameras. Of course, it was not without limitations - firstly, the module on XR can only recognize people, and secondly, only three studio lighting effects (Daylight, Studio light, Contour light) are attached to it against five in XS (Daylight, Studio light, contour light, stage light, stage light - mono).
Portrait mode with improved bokeh effect and "Depth" function (the ability to adjust the degree of background blur) is present in both smartphones.
The front cameras of the iPhone XR and iPhone XS are completely identical.

IPhone XS and iPhone XR colors
iPhone XS is available in Gold, Space Gray, and Silver.
With the iPhone XR, Apple risked repeating the (not the best) experience of the iPhone 5c with a lot of different colors, so the new product will be sold in six colors at once - white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red (PRODUCT) RED.

Detailed comparison of the characteristics (specifications) of the iPhone XS and iPhone XR
XS vs XR - Which iPhone is Better?
Not an easy choice! As always, it all depends on what you need. If you want more expensive body materials, a better camera and display, go for the XS.
The XR, on the other hand, is not without its advantages - it is larger in size and has a much better battery.
Both have received frameless displays, and both have Face ID, and Animoji, and the latest A12 Bionic processor with its advanced neural networks and improved performance, and an advanced version of bokeh and the "Depth" function for blurring the background in the photo. after it was done.
