    Upgraded the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus to IPhone 11 last year and made the right choice as my very first iPhone ever. Doesn’t matter if it’s IPhone XR or IPhone 11 it’s good enough for me and love it and would upgrade for another one☺️

    Got mine in December of 2018 still runs like a clock and does everything I need it to do! And I get by with the 64g. I work in a office by myself so run Pandora, and navigation a lot. I come everyday with at least 35%. Best iPhone I have ever owned to date. It’s paid off so going to keep it for a few years. And yes the colour options were the best this year. A friend got a 11 and those Easter pastel colours were awful.

    I upgraded to a white xr last week from my 7. Its been a dream so far. Very smokth and responsive. The battery lofe is awsome and the camera works good for me. I’m not really a photography head so that doesn’t matter as long as I could see the improvement. Love the bigger display too.

    I had the XR for 2 years and it lasted me perfectly. I upgraded because I wanted the higher res and OLED to the 12 pro max, but it was still rapid. My iPhone 7 after 2 years, was crashing more often. The XR still felt basically new. Most People want the software and fast processor, features of iPhone. They are not bothered about the premiums. However once you use the OLED screens and you know your tech you simply cannot settle.

    Even as a tech nerd, I'm buying one from eBay for like real cheap to replace my galaxy a70. Yeah, in some areas a downgrade but in a lot of ways it's an upgrade. I'm getting it for my grandparents slightly cheaper from JB hi-fi as well. I'm getting then brand new since it has to last 3-4 years but from eBay for me since I only need it to last from now till the 14 pro max comes out (I can't get a 13 pro max and 2 XRs but really need to replace my a70 so 3 XRs it is😅)

    My five month old S20 just broke from just a four foot fall and in a case, destroying the screen beyond usability. I'm waiting for this XR to come in. Samsung certified repair shops are few and far between where I live. This video reassured me that I made a good choice.

    The reason Apple went with this display is because they were targeting iPhone 6, 7, and 8 users. These phones have the same 326ppi display and unless you were coming from the iPhone X (Why?) the display would feel exactly the same, if not mildly better because of the viewing angles.

    I bought the XR but then it died (like literally not working anymore) because when i opened it the first time it was at 0%. Luckily, Apple was kind enough to give full refund. I then bought the iPhone 11, which I love and am happy I have that instead of the XR. No hate to the XR, but obviously the iPhone 11 is better. :)

    I got it 10 months after it came out, which means that if I would’ve waited a little longer I could’ve gotten the iPhone 11, but I still loved my XR, I got the 256GB so it was over $950 after taxes, but I just traded it in 2 months ago and got $830 credit and got the iPhone 12 Pro Max 😁 this time 512GB, I still liked m XR but it was a really good deal so I jumped on it, right now the cheap apple phones are just as good for anything you need to do, I just wanted a better resolution screen and more ram and more memory, I miss the size of the XR though, my 12 Pro Max sticks out of my pocket lol and it’s heavier but I’ll get used to it, I still have a 2nd Gen SE as well, that’s what I’m currently typing on, if you see the XR for a good price then get it, you won’t regret it, I remember that I loved the XR’s camera when I first got it, before that I had an iPhone SE 1st Gen

    256gb is useless, the 11 sucks, the 12 mini 64gb is good depending on how much storage your current phone is using else 128gb anything above is overkill.

    I had it for two years and it’s an amazing phone and it does it’s job. The fact that people say the screen looks like crap and bla bla bla. Unless you’re a tech person, you won’t be able to notice any changes on the screen.
