iPhone 8 vs iPhone XR Comparison

iPhone 8 vs XR: we can’t really tell you which one is better, but we can say which one you should buy

Is there any clear winner in the iPhone XR vs iPhone 8 comparison? It’s hard to really choose a winner here because both of these phones are just so different from one another. The iPhone XR is meant to have longer battery life and has a much bigger screen that’s great for watching tons of videos or playing games all day long, while the iPhone 8 is meant to be a compact companion that perhaps isn’t great for heavy users, but perfect for the average person that just needs a phone for occasional browsing, photos, music, and installing their favorite apps. So it’s very easy to choose between the iPhone XR vs iPhone 8 because these phones are made for two very different types of smartphone users. If you consider yourself a relatively average smartphone user and want an iPhone on a budget, go ahead and buy the refurbished iPhone 8. If you consume a lot of digital content or play a lot of mobile games, the refurbished iPhone XR will definitely be the better choice for you.
