As good as I need it to be

I've had this phone for just on 2 to 3 years and still going strong, like most people I don't use most of the features that it offers but all round it's a really great phone. Show details

Still in use 2023

I can not complain this excellent phone with all day battery life.
Having it for more than a year.
Last phone was an android phone and they have been unstable and crash easily.
Also got this XR cheap in secondhand price.
Might keep it as long as possible and replace the battery after a few years. Show details

Not worth it

I swapped to an iPhone for the first time from Android. I was not happy with the performance. The phone only lasted 6 months when it crashed after an update. The screen also cracked after 3 months. Comapred to Samsung the camera quality is avergage. The battery also did not last long. Show details

User friendly and reliable

I have been using the iPhone XR and I love it. Reason is it’s easy to navigate. Has smart features especially Siri. You don’t need to hold you phone whilst driving you can get Siri to read your incoming messages, you can ask Siri to respond to those messages. This is a safety conscious feature.

Always issues!!!

I brought this phone cash, and I’ve had nothing but trouble. It’s not so much that I have trouble except my friends can’t contact me or important. Phone calls are always been missed. There seems to be no reason for it. Phone was brand-new. I haven’t done anything to it I haven’t turned accessories off and yet my friends always complain that the phone is not getting messages or taking messages. Show details

iPhone XR 256gig

The phone is easy to use, I must say it’s difficult to stop looking for the button. Once your use to it the phone is great and has many features it has and wonder how you did without those functions. The camera is fantastic with the ability to edit them within the photo review. I must admit I prefer the XR has a metal rear shell no more rear glass replacement. XR has the ability to switch from each application to the next with a simple slide up function. Show details

Simply the best

I have had an iPhone since 2009. The XR is my latest (bought it back in 2016 and still use it all day long) and does everything I need it to. It is simple and intuitive to use, which is one of its best features. It also takes great photographs and videos. I use lots of apps and it never seeks to run out of space or processing power. I make a lot of international business calls and the battery lasts all day. rarely do I ever run out of battery. And if I do it charges up fast. I also use a Motorola Android phone which I use for my US number...but I hate it. The iPhone is so much easier to use, more intuitive and much more fun. Highly recommended. I will keep buying iPhone. Show details

My last iPhone

This will be my last iPhone. I do not like the fact that I’ve paid thousands for a phone and now the make the software so that I have to buy one of thier chargers or it won’t charge. So rude. My brother and son have switched and have no trouble charging thier phone so I will too. The other complaint that I have is that the sound has played up after only having it for a few months Show details

Down under

I have had this phone for a year now and extremely pleased with it. The screen size is large enough and it is generally easy to navigate. The photo quality is excellent for an everyday photographer.

Great phone but expensive

I love my xr but it’s expensive! I have had it for 18 months and going strong. Battery health down to 93% unfortunately. I only wish the iPhones were more affordable. Show details

Hello, I see reports that the battery last for a long time.
I have been averaging 2.5hrs a day screen time and to charge 3 or 4 times a day.
My old Huawei got 2 or 3 days without charging.
Can someone explain why I am getting such a short life between charges?

probably because you over charge it sometimes. if that is the case you need to replace the battery.

I have had my phone now for just over a year and unless I am playing games all day I only need to charge mine every second day. I would suggest replacing the battery

as the battery ages, it holds less charge. You should replace the battery before something bad happens.
