iPhone XS is still the go-to, but the iPhone XR is not far behind!
Now that all three 2018 iPhones are available for (pre-)purchase, those who held out until the launch of the XR will finally need to make their choice... Do you want a $999+ XS or XS Max, or will you be perfectly happy with a colorful iPhone XR?

Turns out, the XR doesn't cut that many corners. You lose 3D Touch, but that's a feature that many have called useless for years. You lose a telephoto lens, but is it really that important? And you get an LCD panel with a 326 pixels per inch density, which is not as fancy as the new OLED panels on the XS models.

But hey, the processor is the same, the main cameras are the same, you still get Face ID, and the new iPhone design, though with a slightly thicker bezel. And you get your own pick from 6 pretty cool colors. We thought we'd ask you — are the features that are exclusive to the XS and XS max worth the $250+ price increase? Or are you more drawn towards the super-colorful iPhone XR? Well, here are the results:
