So I was frankly really impressed by the new iPhone lineup at first glance — two higher end phones with no compromises and a cheaper option without some of the finer things like the stainless steel and OLED. Finally, a bezel-free, affordable 2018 smart phone from Apple. But then I found out that the resolution on the Xr screen is just over 720p. This, to me, just seems idiotic. So if I were to upgrade my 6s after three years of progress of innovation, I’m actually getting a step DOWN in screen resolution? I can watch YouTube videos (or any video, for that matter) in 1080p on my 6s but now if I upgrade I’ll be limited to 720p? This seems totally backwards.
