I admittedly have not owned an iPhone X or the XS, but the iPhone XR feels very premium. More so than the 7 Plus I had that was praised just 2 years ago as Apple's flagship, nearly $1000 device. It's only when compared to the XS range is the perceived premium feel different between the XS and XR. It's an incredibly solid device and I think it undoubtedly has taken away millions of sales of iPhone XS/XS Max phones. If the XR hadn't come out, I would have likely pulled the trigger on the XS 256GB and paid $350 more for that than my 128GB XR.
