This is my first iPhone and I can say I've been sort of an Android fanboy because I've owned every iteration of the Galaxy S series, except the S5 and S8 when I chose the Note 4 and the Note 8 respectively. My first Android phones were always rooted and modded to fit my taste. But a couple of years ago, I felt smartphones were starting to get boring, mainly because user experience became so standardized and innovation slowed down.
So I was boring and I thought why not give an iPhone a shot and after reading some reviews and without putting much thought into it I bought the XR and here I am. My conclusion is the same, smartphones, even flagships, have become utilitarians objects and experience through platforms is similar. I don't miss Android the same way I wouldn't miss iOS. I know this iPhone is not QHD, has big bezels and no telephoto camera, but that's it, everything else is a fluid, yet simple, experience and maybe I'm old enough to admit that's OK for me now.

I had this phone for about 2 months and is incredible, i had the iPhone XS Max first and it was a great phone, but the size was a bit much, so i "downgraded" to the iPhone Xr and boy i was wrong, this phone is a perfect size and battery is amazingly better than the iPhone XS Max, yes the screen edges are far more attractive in the XS Max, but the iPhone Xr is unique. I have to say i feel great with my decision to "downgrade".

Used the iPhone XR for a few weeks and I have to say amazing battery life. Battery can last from 1-2 days on full charge and normal use but your use can be different from the normal use. Good screen except for some of the unsupported apps. Yes, the screen is 1792*828 6.1” 326ppi.. But the screen is very good and definitely provides a great viewing experience, Also 3D Touch is not included on this phone, I didn’t use 3D Touch on my old iPhone. but I know some people do use it. very fast phone. A12 Bionic is a beast and runs almost everything amazingly and with no problems. Amazing camera, the smart HDR does help a lot for Dynamic range and the 1 and only Main camera is the one from the iPhone XS/Max and provides great shots and software portrait that only works on people. The Front camera is very good and also provides great selfie shots for that Instagram page. The front camera uses the TrueDepth Technology to take portraits which also only can work on people, along with Face ID.
