    Do you see red at the end of this HDR video on Vimeo?



    iPhone 7 Plus and XR can’t.
    iPhone 8 Plus and XS Max can.

    This is what it looks like on my iPhone XR.

    Update: I didn’t see red in the “make available offline” version on the app. I see red now after removing the offline version and restarting the app.

    Apple hasn’t advertised the XR/8+ as comptabile with full HDR like the X/XS. Just that they support it, and it’ll be a small improvement. My guess is the Xr still does this but lags behind a bit in some colors compared to the 8, still capable so still advertised, but the shortcomings get swept under the rug.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. The video plays perfectly well on my XR.

    More of a very faded red like your Twitter image. My iPad Pro which has "HDR Support" is the same.

    Can any iPhone X/XS owners comment?

    I have to add, it's still a beautiful video on my XR.

    Viewing this video on Safari (via MacRumors forum) on my iPhone XS Max I did not notice the red. switching over to the Vimeo App the red was shown.

    Wow, watched in Vimeo app too and saw the red in my XR. Interesting. But I can't find the option to stretch the video to fit the width. The colours seem to really pop as well.

    100% confirmed on my XR with the Vimeo app you can see the red. Watching the video from the browser, no red.

    Double Tap anywhere in the Vimeo app.

    HDR is so hyped up yet so unimportant. Even on flatscreen TV's. It's more marketing than reality. Either the panel you are using produces good blacks or it doesn't. HDR, Dolby Vision, my goodness most of it is just hype and stat sheet bs.

    It’s a well known fact that the 8+/XS/XS max have a better true HD display then the XR with its blurry text.

    Nope, just a matter of using the Vimeo app. Nothing to do with screens for this thread.

    Also, no one can tell the difference between my XR and my coworkers XS Max. Not a single person. Text is perfect.

    Nope, just a matter of weather or not you use the Vimeo app for this thread. Nothing to do with the screens after all.

    All phones can with Vimeo app. Your thread is bunk.

    Good reply. That poster trolls XR threads.

    Great, thread solved. Mods should lock this and you should change the title so people aren't further misled about the XR display.

    So your anecdotal evidence of your co workers suffices?
    I definitely can see a difference without having both side by side.

    I wouldn't call the text "blurry", but it's definitely less sharp.
    The XR screen though is definitely a little better than I thought it would look. It's still nice.

    I personally don't need any co-workers for me to call BS on blurry text on the XR. You folks with these super eyes that can see the faintest of details.. Glad I don't have your eyes. The XR display is just fine and folks need to really just knock off the BS.

    On LCD, yes, HDR is kinda lame.

    Try watching HDR video on OLED in dark setting, and you will change your mind.
