    I think comparing The Verge and Daring Fireball write ups is interesting...

    Has anyone seen any XR reviews discussing the quality of the connection in low signal areas that the current XS seems to struggle with?

    I would think with an antenna design closer to the X than the gigabit-LTE XS it shouldn't have those issues but I'd like some confirmation. Could be a deciding factor for me.

    No, I doubt you will either, everyone’s just mentioned the difference in antennas and LTE speeds, I think for actual tests of the signal strength you’ll have to wait for users to feedback on it. But the XR is expected to not have any issues as its using the same design as the iPhone X and 8 etc.

    Pretty sure her reasoning was for the price though.
    If they were all the same price the vast majority of people would go for the XS/XS Max over the XR as they obviously have much feature and are better phones. The huge draw for the XR is the cost. It doesn’t make people prefer it over the XS it just makes it the more sensible option for most.

    It’s a nice iPhone no doubt. The screen is a little disappointing for people into tech but I doubt the average person will notice or care. It’ll be a big hit!

    Another yellow review. "Best iPhone you can buy, at the moment."

    Lol. iPhone 6/7/8 bezels are 'huge'. These are not huge. They're larger compared to an X / XS, but considering this is an LCD display with those 'huge' bezels, I think they've done a hell of a good job. :)

    Uhmmm - these aren't unbiased reviews, they're just more Apple promotions. These are pre release phones hand fed to hand picked Apple sycophants.
    Wait until the masses speak on the forums. Then we'll know.

    Does anyone think that a YouTuber on apple's A list is going to dis a new iPhone? Of course they won't or they'll get blackballed forever. No more free iPhones.

    OMG I've just twigged!! Jeez, apologies if anyone was offended! Obviously not my intention!

    No one said they were 'unbiased'. They're just impression vids / early reviews but they give us a great look at the device outside of the videos we've already seen of the early hands on.
    I for one really appreciate them all being here so I can binge watch them whilst I wait for mine to be delivered. No one was bothered when the XS early reviews were posted.

    The coral looks REALLY good in iJustine’s video. Less orange than in other videos and pictures. Almost made me rethink my choice of red.

    Hmm not sure about the frame colour of the yellow one? It looks a bit too gold. Might be able to scrap that one.
    Really want to see the black one as that could be a cool looking one? But that’s the same old hmmm...
