I have a iPhone 6 that needs replacing, the battery is shot and it only has 16GB of storage. I was waiting for the Apple announcement and planed to get the current model. For my budget my option is the XR, I just can see paying $999 for a phone so the XS is out. I carry my phone in my front paints pocket and I feel the XR is just too big. Is this the way of the future for apple giant phones? I love its but now the other side of the fence is something I will also be checking out.
