Apple iPhone XR Review

November 5, 2018 | Amy Davies | Rating star Rating star Rating star Rating star


Announced at the same time as the iPhone XS, but not made available to the market until a few weeks later, the iPhone XR is intended to be a more affordable option for those who want an iOS device.

In order to make it more budget-friendly, there a number of sacrifices to be made when comparing it to the more expensive iPhone XS.

The biggest differences which are likely to be of interest to photographers come down to the display and the camera. The iPhone XR has a bigger display, however it’s a lower resolution LCD screen, compared with the high resolution OLED of the iPhone XS.

Meanwhile, unlike with the iPhone XS, the iPhone XR has just a single camera. It uses a 12-megapixel f/1.8 wide-angle camera, leaving you without the telephoto optic found on the iPhone XS. You do get optical image stabilisation, Portrait Mode, and 4K video recording at up to 60fps, though. On the front of the phone is a TrueDepth 7 megapixel selfie camera.

You can pick up the iPhone XR in three different size capacities (64GB, 128GB and 256GB), while it’s available in six different colours. At the time of writing, the iPhone XR retails for £749 for the minimum storage capacity, up to £899 for the largest. You can also buy it as part of a contract, with varying prices.

Ease of Use

The iPhone XR may well be the “budget” offering (for an iPhone), but in its outward design it still feels like a pretty premium offering.

It’s available in a range of different colours – including the bright blue model we’ve been using for this review. One of the cutbacks for this phone is the fact that it uses an LCD, rather than an OLED. It also has a larger bezel around the display, so although the 6.1-inch screen is physically larger than the iPhone XS’s 5.8-inch screen, the screen to body ratio is actually worse.

Like the iPhone XS, the iPhone XR has the controversial “notch” at the top of the screen. These days, a notch is a much more common design element, but if you hate them, there’s not really a way to get around it with any of the modern iPhones.

Despite the fact that its an LCD screen, the display is still bright and detailed, and certainly when viewed in isolation, you’ll be hard pushed to spot too much of a big difference between it and a standard iPhone XS screen – so you better hope your best mate doesn’t leave theirs lying next to yours regularly.

There are several ways to unlock the iPhone XR’s screen, including using Face ID or a PIN. There’s no fingerprint sensor, as is common for current iPhones. You can access the iPhone XR’s camera directly from the lock screen, with a firm press on the camera icon. If accessing the camera this way, you’ll only be able to see the images you’ve taken in your current session, needing to unlock the phone completely to see older pictures. You’ll also need to unlock the phone completely to access certain camera settings.

The iPhone’s native camera app is extremely simple and straightforward to use. This can be seen as both a positive and a negative, depending on how you look at things. Little has changed in the past few years of iPhone camera apps, so it’s also very familiar to anyone coming from an older model.

Launching directly in the standard Photo mode when you start up the camera, there are also a few other modes which can be accessed by swiping left or right on the screen. For stills, in addition to the standard Photo mode, you’ve got Portrait, Square and Pano. For video, there’s standard Video, Slo-Mo and Time-Lapse.

In the Standard photo mode, you don’t have a whole lot of control over camera settings. Good news for keeping things simple, you can point and shoot and feel assured of getting a good shot most of the time. If you want to adjust exposure compensation, you can tap an area of the screen, wait a split-second for the sun icon to appear, then run your finger up and down the screen to adjust brightness.

The other stils shooting modes are fairly self-explanatory. The Square mode shoots photos in a 1:1 ratio – the only difference being that you can’t use Live Photos if you shoot this way. A Live Photo is a short video clip which accompanies an image. Pano requires you to sweep the phone across the scene in order to capture an ultra-wide angle shot.

If you want to take greater control over settings, it’s possible to download third-party apps. With such apps, you might also be able to shoot in raw format, but you can’t do that directly from the native camera. Speaking of image formats, by default, the iPhone XR shoots in the “HEIF” format – High Efficiency Image Format. These days, this is a format which is more widely compatible than ever before, but you might prefer to switch to shooting in JPEG for more confidence that your images can be read by other machines, or via email.

The iPhone XR has the same Portrait mode that the iPhone XS has, but with a couple of crucial differences. As the iPhone XR has just one lens, it will create a shallow depth of field effect using software online. Additionally, while you can use the iPhone XS to create bokeh behind any kind of subject, with the iPhone XR, portrait mode is exactly that – for human subjects only. If you try to use it with non-human subjects, you’ll be greeted with a “No person detected” warning – bad news for pet lovers.

It’s possible to shoot at a variety of different frame rates and resolutions for video with the iPhone XR. To choose between the different options, you have to head out of the camera app and to the main settings menu in the phone. It’s a bit of a long-winded process that’s not hugely user friendly, especially if you want to quickly change between options. Although it’s possible to shoot at up to 4K at 60fps, bear in mind that the fairly low resolution of the phone’s screen means that you can’t take advantage of such high resolutions. You may also find that you want to shoot in a lower resolution to save space on your device.

As with all iPhones, it’s not possible to expand the storage for the iPhone XR once you’ve already bought a model. If you’re somebody who is going to take a large number of videos and pictures, it’s probably a good idea to buy the largest capacity phone that you can afford.

Image Quality

All of the sample images in this review were taken using the 12 megapixel JPEG setting, which gives an average image size of around 6Mb.

As is often the case with smartphones, the iPhone XS performs at its best when the light is good, and plentiful too.

Colours in favourable lighting conditions are vibrant without being too over the top – in fact landscape shots have a very natural look to them. Detail is also well rendered when shooting at low ISOs, too.

One of the sacrifices of choosing this model over the iPhone XS is that you only get a single wide-angle lens, rather than an additional telephoto zoom optic. You could choose to use digital zoom to get closer to the subject, but image degradation is fairly obvious, so it’s best to avoid if possible.

As light drops, image quality is less impressive. Images taken in very dark conditions appear a little smudgy in places – so while they’re probably going to be more than fine for using on social media sites and the like, there are certainly much better smartphones on the market for low-light shooting, such as the Huawei P20 Pro, which you can buy for around the same price.

Another consequence of only having one lens is that Portrait mode is not quite as convincing, using computational algorithms to make a judgement on whether something should be blurred or not. It works reasonably well when your human subject is on a fairly uncomplicated background, but as soon as you bring in any kind of pattern effect, the outline is a little more obvious. It’s also disappointing not to be able to use the effect with other subjects – something which the Google Pixel 3 (and the Google Pixel 2) can manage, despite also only having a single lens.

Focal Length

The Apple iPhone XR's fixed focal length lens is equivalent to 28mm in 35mm camera terms.



The Apple iPhone XR will focus accurately for close-up shots down to around 10cm from your subject.


Shallow Depth of Field (Portrait Mode)

Here is an example photo taken using the portrait / shallow depth of field mode.

If you’re a fan of iOS, you’ll already be aware just how expensive owning an iPhone is. With the XR, you have the opportunity to pick one up at a slightly lower price than the top-of-the-line iPhone XS will set you back.

However, for the reduction in price, you have to make quite a few sacrifices – and if you’re a photographer, or someone who is particularly interested in using your phone to take pictures, unfortunately one of them is to the camera.

While it’s still a perfectly serviceable camera, it’s something we’d be more likely to recommend to somebody who’s not overly bothered about their phone’s camera performance, or is happy to make a compromise in order to stay within the Apple family.

Despite the iPhone XR being a “budget” option, it still retails for the best part of £800. For the same price, you could pick up several of the top-of-the-line Android phones currently on the market, such as the Huawei P20 Pro. For not much more, you could also get a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 or a Huawei Mate 20 Pro. It also feels like if you’re going to spend £749 on a phone, it’s worth making the additional £250 payment to pick up the much better iPhone XS.

Only having one lens makes the iPhone XS feel more like a mid-range phone. Comparable Android devices, such as the OnePlus 6 can be picked up for under £500, and perhaps makes more sense for those whom photography is important, but so is budget.

On the plus side, having a single lens hasn’t stopped the iPhone XR offering the very popular Portrait mode, albeit only for use with human subjects. It produces results which are fairly impressive considering there’s just a single lens, but it doesn’t match the Google Pixel 3, or even the Google Pixel 2 for that matter – both of which also only use a single lens.

Putting all other considerations aside, the iPhone XR will no doubt still sell extremely well. If you’re heavily invested in the iOS ecosystem, it’s the cheapest entry into owning a current iPhone, so is recommended for iPhone fans who are on a (slightly) restricted budget.

Review Roundup

Reviews of the Apple iPhone XR from around the web. »

Of the three iPhones launched in 2018, the iPhone XR is the most impressive of the lot. Not because of the strength of the spec – the iPhone XS is slightly ahead in a lot of areas – but what you're 'saving' by going for this model far outweighs what you're losing. A multitude of colors, very good battery life and a lower price? If you want a new iPhone, check this one out first.

The iPhone XR looks to offer most of what made the iPhone XS a knockout for £250 less – but with a colourful body and a slightly larger screen is this the iPhone to buy?
Read the full review » »

The iPhone XR is the best iPhone of the year. Yes, the iPhone XS and XS Max have better screens and more versatile cameras, but neither of them look as gorgeous as the XR in yellow, blue, or coral. The iPhone XR (pronounced “ten-R”) is also significantly more affordable and carries many of the best features from the flagships. It’s an unquestionably superb value at $750, especially if you’re still shopping around for an iPhone and the $1,000 price tag on the XS is bringing you down.
