Black iPhone XR vs. the other colors — Does the black aluminum frame/border make the bezels look thinner, compared to the other colors? Or is it the other way around?

Nope, got my black XR today and the bezels are humongous, even coming from a 6S Plus.

Bezels- blah. I'm using an older Plus iPhone and I NEVER notice the side or top or bottom bezels. Never. Why would anyone be looking at the bezels? That's like going to a movie theater and watching the curtains on the sides.
You’ve got a point. Now back to the initial question, any idea? Is it a Yes or a No? What do you think?

The day that you click and notice them is going to be a hard day for you. ;-)

Because there’s always going to be those that have to find something to nit pick at lol. I’m coming from an 8plus and I don’t even notice the bezels on this phone.

I would say yes if you're using anything other than a black background on your screen.
If you use a lighter than black one, you may notice thicker bezels compared to the other colours.

However I played with the black XR in Apple today and I really really liked it. With the pre-installed black wallpaper it looks and feels fantastic.

I have black XR with black case. I like the look because, the bezel and case meld together for a unified look. I never thought the bezel was too big to begin with. I came from and 8+. That had big bezels. All I see when I use the XR is a beautiful screen.
Black on black all day.

Having the X and the XS Max, the bezels on the XR are not that much bigger. I love the way people over exaggerate things. Sorta like the ever so slight increase in thickness between the XS and XR.

The XR is a great device. Enjoy the device. The bezels on all the colors are the same.
