iPhone X vs iPhone XR Comparison

What’s the difference between the iPhone X vs XR?

Ah yes, the iPhone X vs iPhone XR, such a classic iPhone comparison! This is a really easy one, and even though the iPhone XR may seem completely superior to the iPhone X, these devices cater towards different types of users. The iPhone XR has superior battery life, a newer processor, and a bigger display. But the iPhone X is slightly smaller and therefore better for one-handed use, and has more high-tech OLED screen technology (it gives more vibrant colors compared to the LCD screen on the XR, but it also eats up more battery power). It’s also a thinner phone, which makes it feel sleeker. So it’s really up to you: do you want the sleeker iPhone X or the newer iPhone XR?

Is the camera in the iPhone X or XR better?

Even though the iPhone XR is a newer device, we’d rather have the camera feature in the iPhone X because of its second lens which gives you a zoomed-in portrait mode that beautifully blurs backgrounds. The iPhone XR also has a portrait mode and blurs backgrounds, but it uses software to do this artificially, so you can still expect portrait shots to look better on an iPhone X. Therefore, if you’re trying to decide between the iPhone X vs XR and need the model with better camera performance, you should probably buy a used & refurbished iPhone X!
