IPhone XR now available from Vodafone

In the United States, the launches of iPhone XS and XS Max were nearly 50 percent more successful than the introduction of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, according to new data from Flurry.

Early reviews suggest users miss out on very little except the OLED screen if they plumb for the cheaper series, and with a 6.1-inch screen the iPhone XR is a little smaller.

The iPhone XR is not yet on sale in the United States - that will happen at 8:00 AM Eastern Time. As always, it is not only more expensive counterparts, but more expensive than most iPhone XR in the civilized world - the price to be much higher prices in the United States, and the reasons, of course, were not disclosed. On Flipkart buyers can exchange their old phones and get up to Rs 16,000 off along with no cost EMI starting at Rs 2,555 per month.

According to mobile analytics service provider Flurry, iPhone 7 is the most popular Apple smartphone with 15.40 percent market share, followed by iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 6s (12.73 percent and 12.40 percent respectively).

The effect is much like the LCD screens Apple has made before, to be honest, as they've always been colorful and sharp, but with the new "Liquid Retina" display things are supposed to closer to the high-end OLED screen.

For photography, iPhone XR has a 12-megapixel wide-angle single rear camera with OIS, f/1.8 aperture and True Tone flash.

That means Portrait Mode photos in lower lighting on the XR are potentially going to look better than those on the XS, but there's one major caveat - you can only take Portrait Mode photos of people on the XR.

The iPhone XR is significantly heavier than iPhones past - it weighs in at 194 grams. With Cellular-equipped Apple Watch models, you don't even have to worry about missing a call or text while out and about without your iPhone.

This larger version of the iPhone 7 has a second camera lens in the back, allowing for twice the magnification without any degradation in image quality.

Both the iPhone XR and XS have the same front-facing camera, and it's pretty solid.

But for all the ground it concedes, the XR also has a feature that will endear it to many - its battery life. It also has a rectangular shaped battery rather than the L-shaped one in other X models, and though it's smaller than the 8 Plus', it has a larger capacity.

Surprisingly, in the United Kingdom market, all the models and colors of iPhone XR will need a waiting time of one to two weeks for shipment.

There are a few other differences to be aware of between the XS and the XR: the XR has a slower LTE Advanced connection instead of a Gigabit LTE connection like the iPhone XS, it has an IP67 water resistance rating instead of IP68, and it maxes out at 256GB of storage.
