As the thread title states I’m torn between 2 said phones
They are both 64gb and have comparable mint appearance

which do you feel is a better deal

thanks in advance for your opinions

Do you prefer a bigger screen or a smaller screen? Outside of that the X has better internals overall. The Xr has better battery.

I’m coming from a 7 plus and have not really had any experience with either phones


But I feel I can live with both screen sizes

Xr: Longer battery life, newer battery since it's 1 year newer model, newer CPU.
X: Higher res OLED display, telephoto camera

Honestly I would try and save up for an iPhone 11, it improves a ton over the Xr for $100 more brand new.

If u have post paid. And in USA. I got iPhone 11 with $200 gift card for upgrade line at Sams club. So basically $700 minus the $200 gift card for iPhone 11. That’s the biggest bang for the buck. And better than buying used

Unfortunately I don’t live in the USA so I’m torn between these

Very true but I’m not buying the Xr new and currently don’t have the luxury of getting a $700 phone right now

The A11 is plenty powerful. Both have 3GB of ram too. I’d say with ios13 the A11 in the X will be just as fast as the A12 in the XR.

I would buy the iPhone X, better quality, materials, and a better display, and camera.

the A11 is still a monster of a processor at less than 10% slower than a A12.

This, I’d definitely go for the X
