Apple iPhone XR review: The best iPhone value in years


The Good The less expensive iPhone XR delivers most iPhone X and XS features, including an excellent big screen in a comfortable body, fast performance, Face ID and wireless charging, and a camera that"s mostly as good as the iPhone XS.

The Bad The iPhone XR"s single rear camera lacks optical zoom and has a limited portrait mode. Its LCD screen, while large, bright and vivid, is still a step below the iPhone XS" OLED in contrast. The aluminum XR is slightly less durable than the steel XS.

The Bottom Line The iPhone XR is the best iPhone for the price, delivering most of the advantages of the iPhone XS for hundreds less.
