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.

Great device, showing its age

published

Great camera, crisp photos. All round phone suitable for the usual calls and messages as well as shopping online, surfing the net, banking, appointments. Apple apps work reliably. Due to age now of phone, it requires daily charging at end of day to keep in top notch condition.

Purchased in at Kogan.com for $600.

Phone is amazing

published

Camera quality was amazing this phone takes excellent quality pictures and is very easy to use. The colour display could have been a little better but was great for its time and the durability could have been a little better. Apps ran smooth and seamlessly on this device.

Iphone XR benefits and pitfalls

published

Well it is an excellent phone and we ahve used it worldwide prior to covid. There are several great positive, responsive loading, great camera editing, easy to use with apps and comfortable hand size. The main downfall is the sensitive touch screen and the fact that you need a cover on it to make sure it shuts down. Siri is also average and the voice recognition needs some work. Overall its still an exceptional phone. Tough and ready its guaranteed to last you a lifetime.

Perfect iphone

Excellent mobile, with good battery life and camera. Haven’t come across similar mobile which has the required features at this price.
Good network connectivity and number of apps can run pretty well at any given point of time.

iPhone XR (2018)

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.
