Sales of iPhone XR begin in Russian Federation

Sales of iPhone XR begin in Russian Federation

Even the smallest 64GB iPhone XS Max costs a whopping W1.52 million, and the largest at 256GB costs W1.72 million.

Last year's lineup of iPhones was tricky for would-be buyers. You get sharper and brighter portraits of humans while retaining all the smart HDR goodness and the stupendous video capabilities of the iPhone.

Equipped with 6.5-inch Super Retina OLED display, the new phone is powered by the equally new A12 Bionic processor which feature Neural Engine for AI-related applications. Need I say more? Despite lacking a second lens, the XR lets you blur backgrounds in some shots, a feature many phones are now getting. Again, if you're a serious photographer, this might be a deal-breaker.

After a day of using the iPhone XR, it looks like this one may actually be a keeper.

I loved using the iPhone X over the past year and it was a rare thing for me to keep an iPhone for an entire year. This new touch interaction mode feature came into the Apple ecosystem with the iPhone 6S, but after analysing four years of consumer behaviour data, it's clear this feature has been woefully underused.

What it does give up is in terms of display - yes, the notch is the same as in the other iPhones but this time it is in a display that is a 6.1 inch LCD one, as compared to the AMOLED displays seen on the others.

And that extra battery life?

They're both 458ppi, which is obviously a big step up in terms of detail, and there's no denying that the difference is noticeable side-by-side. Also missing is the more durable steel frame that's on the iPhone XS and XS Max.

The iPhone XR has wireless charging built in.

iFixit has awarded the iPhone XR with a repairability score of six which is better than that of the Google Pixel 3 XL's repairability score of 4. However, Apple expended a great amount of effort to create an LCD display that can be pushed to the edges of the phone and provide the colour gamut that rivals the best LCD displays on the market.

Opening up the iPhone XR is pretty similar to the iPhone X as Apple uses its standard Pentalobe screws.

Once your books are synced, you can leave your iPhone at home or in your gym locker and listen to audiobooks directly from the Audible app on your Apple Watch. Just how well it fares against them and where it stands in its own family hierarchy will be revealed in our detailed review.

Aside being the "best" iPhone yet, Apple even did cut couple of bucks off the device's original price and then adds more color to make variation easier and possible but still nobody pays any attention to this.
