IPhone XS and the iPhone XR Affordability

Share

Kuo raised his shipment forecast for iPhone XR to 36 million to 38 million units in the fourth quarter of 2018, up 10 percent from his original estimate of 33 million to 35 million units. Take things up another notch to 256GB and the phone will cost you $849.

At the back of the XR, there's a single-lens camera which is available in lieu of the dual-lens camera system in the iPhone XR. "Portrait mode also works with the front 7-megapixel (f/1.8) camera".

Apple CEO Tim Cook will give investors a report on the sales performance of the new iPhone series next Thursday. "I'm buying it for my parents, but if they don't like it, I'll just return it".

So to listen to a standalone audiobook on the watch, you do need to sync the book to the watch from the iPhone app. Apple says that with LCD screens, higher resolution drains the battery faster, a trade-off that's minimal with the XS because its screen doesn't need a backlight.

Smart HDR is similar between the two cameras, though the feature is a bit more hit or miss when it comes to the handling of highlights and complex lighting situations.

It's when you get into Portrait mode that things become more complicated. Differences are subtle, though. "Even though it features 3GB of RAM to the iPhone XS' 4GB, the overall situation here is that you're getting a phone that is damn near identical as far as speed and capability".

The iPhone XR has wireless charging built in.

What's missing in the XR is a second rear lens for double the magnification.

While the iPhone XR is cheaper compared to the recently-launched iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, it still starts at AED 3,179 (compared to the iPhone XS that starts at AED 4,229), which is hardly budget.

According to CNN, iPhone XR characteristics largely coincides with the older models. Apple has also tied up with carriers like Airtel, Reliance Jio and Vodafone top offer the iPhone XR with exciting cashbacks and bundled plans.

Two more points of comparison. For example, it has the FaceID and design from the X but has slightly larger bezels due to using LCD screen technology.

The important thing is that it's easy to get wonderful images, because the low-light performance is exemplary, the Smart HDR feature means you don't have to worry about hard exposures in scenes that mix light and dark, and the rapid focus and response means you won't miss a shot. Plus, like the iPhone XS, you can change the level of blur after you've taken the shot.

The phone displays, however, are different, and those disparities can make a difference. This phone won't feel big for existing Plus users, but think twice if you have small hands or small pockets.

And for the first time in a long time, an iPhone comes in fun colours. Though the trend in phones has been to go bigger, some people preferred the smaller size - and the $350 price tag.
