It was expected to be the "affordable" iPhone.

The iPhone XR price in India was announced at the launch event held in Cupertino, California last month.

It is not as if it looks like a "cheaper" avatar of the iPhone, though. Vodafone and Idea Cellular can also buy the iPhone XR from the site.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 has tiny bezels and 10GB of RAM
Everything should look great on the 6.39-inch FHD+ AMOLED display which offers a 1080 x 2340 resolution and 19:5:9 aspect ratio. In addition, the Mi Mix 3 comes 5G ready, where it'll be compatible with European networks from the first quarter of 2019.


The new iPhone Xs and Xs Max have been available for purchase since the middle of September. The most economical choice is the $450 iPhone 7 with 32 GB while if you want the speediest phone, you will need to pay $1,450 for the iPhone XS Max with storage of 512GB. But iPhone XR buyers are drafting off of everyone who bought an iPhone X last year and an iPhone XS or XS Max this year - they get a phone stuffed with new tech, a great camera, and handsome design, without paying four digits. But some customers, especially women, have complained on social media that the handsets are getting too hefty for their hands. The 256GB version of the iPhone XR costs $849, which is still $150 less than the iPhone XS. At 194 grams, it is also on the heavier side, but the weight seems very well distributed. The display has an 828 x 1792 pixels resolution with a pixel density of 326 Pixels Per Inch.

The black bezels around the display are noticeable, but they are consistent around all four edges so that the display still extends to the top and bottom further than most Android phones. You lose 3D Touch, but that's a feature that many have called useless for years. If I don't charge my iPhone XS Max at work, it was usually limping in the red if I got home past 8 p.m. or so.

This is due to the fact the software can't identify those subjects as easily from the single sensor, where the additional hardware on the more expensive XS is able to draw on more info. You lose a telephoto lens, but is it really that important? The smartphone comes with IP67 rating which makes it dust and water resistant. The iPhone Xr brings in the best of the iPhone X and iPhone Xs series designs, while giving up features that consumers are not concerned with. Ranging from $999 to $1099, one has to decide if the new iPhones are worth their money when similar phones are a few hundred dollars cheaper.
