    iPhone Xr today from my carrier.

    First thing I want to mention that I had a X last year and now I have a Xs.

    Need the Xr for my business as second phone

    Compare to the Xs and X:

    Display resolution is fine and you don’t have to worry about.

    It is fast as my Xs

    Bezels are a little bit too fat

    Camera is fine

    All in all great Revolution of the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

    Got it with iOS 12.0
    Have the 64GB White Version

    Are you using the same carrier on both? Any improvement in LTE reception on the XR?

    You need to rename this as First XR!

    You are the very first here with an XR and lots of people will be jealous!

    Looks good, hope you enjoy!

    Using the same carrier on both phones
    T-Mobile Germany

    Had no problems with LTE on the Xs and today I had no problems with the Xr on LTE Network

    Had problems with the Xs WiFi with iOS 12.0

    12.0.1 fixed my problem

    Can you check for PWM/flickering by taking a super-slow video of it? Lot's of people will thank you if you do.

    You have have a look at this thread about PWM and flickering:
    https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/eye-strain-while-using-iphone-x.2085427/page-81#post-26699987
    and
    https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/pwm-flicker-and-new-iphones.2135091

    But basically the ask is to take a video of the XR screen with your X using in SLO-MO mode.

    Something like this:

    Can you share a photo? Rounding up some of the early iPhone XR photos for an MR post. Will be doing first impressions too if anyone else wants to share!

    Where is the picture you had originally posted? Can I see the back? I want to see the white in some real world, non-youtube conditions. Thanks!

    I can’t figure out why everyone is so obsessed with the bezels on the XR, it doesn’t matter. It Still a great-looking phone and any ‘Non-Tech’ consumer will appreciate this new form factor.

    I don't get it either. Yeah if you compare to the X or XS they are bigger. But it's an edeg to edge screen and looks pretty damn good too me. No chins or big foreheads.

    Its because everyone complaining is comparing it to the X. For those of us coming from an iPhone 6, 7, 8, its gonna be a massive update.

    You need to understand there are paid shills and trolls on ALL these forums by competitors paying them to dismiss certain products and lower morale for them. This is not a joke.

    I personally think the Xr is gorgeous in every aspect, a really nice looking device, the bezels may be a bit wider than the Xs but it still looks great, it’s still a smaller bezel than a lot of phones have these days.

    Wrong, bezels are much thicker on the XR than the 6, 7, 8 left and right sides. Hold the phone and have it in your hand before you provide an opinion.
