    Coral is actually a pretty cool color. My wife has it. She originally had the blue cause she was hesitant on the coral from the pictures, but once I saw it in person and sent her the picture, she was sold. Very unique.

    Blue is my favorite color and I thought it'd be a no brainer, but in person I saw how the store model already had paint peeling on the silvery sides, and the coating felt too slick. Surprisingly, boring black got me in the end, the texture of the sides was most rubbery and pleasant.

    It's a nice black though, with the glass layer. My first black phone since the 3g!

    To prevent it disappearing on tables, I put a giant smiley sticker on it. Surprisingly gets a lot of compliments. o_O

    So many nice colors to choose from, it was a tough choice. I like the yellow the best, but I ended up getting white as I was taken by its clean and classy good looks, and I like the silver sides. I was also tempted by black, that looked very sharp. I will however be getting the battery case from Apple this week, so I'll be covering up a lot of my phone's good looks. :oops:

    I really like that red color, I just wish they had it on the XS. I’m sure they’ll do it later this year to try to boost sales.

    Was the paint peeling off as if just flaking or as if it was dropped?

    Flaking, from just simply being handled by many people. All over the sides especially, where you'd grab it. I wonder if the black looked better because less people handled it? Lol idk but even so the black rim texture felt nicer. I asked the apple guy why, since it's the same material, and he said it's because of different paint type.

    Small dots of paint coming off? Or just the entire coating rubbed off. I’ve ordered a black one as well. I hope it’s fine over time. Makes me think if I should have gotten the white one.

    Large streaks of silver showing through, obvious at a quick glance. And I don't have great eyesight, can't tell the difference between XR vs "better" screens!

    The in-store black looked totally fine though. Not sure why. Next time I'm in I'll check the other colors too, and take some photos.

    I just hope that the Red color stays for next year, as I will want it on the XR2 :cool:

    I have the black one but really wish I would have gone with (Product)Red. All of the colors look great honestly.

    Went with white, very classic, but the red color made it a tough decision.

    Went for the classic white one while my girlfriend got the (Product)RED about a month later.

    The red really screams and looks so cool combined with the black front.

    I really like both of our colors :D

    I got the (Product)RED one, I wanted to get the yellow one (because I'll forever be Hufflepuff). Sadly none of the stores in my area had yellow, saw the red in person and really liked it, so went with that.

    Nope. Love the red. Of course between the family we have every color except black and yellow (no Steeler fans here lol)

    Not at all!
    I LOVE my white XR just as I loved my white/silver 8 Plus before and the white/silver 6s before that... :)
    Been going white/silver since the 5s and love it.

    I upgraded from an iPhone 7 yesterday after the Audio IC chip died on my 7. Went for a white XR, after initially going with the blue.

    Why’d I go with white? For me it looks cleaner and, after seeing how wear and tear and general use of a case took its tool on the black anodising on the aluminium band, I felt having a basic silver aluminium band would look better long term.

    As for the screen. It’s a beauty. It’s not “720p”, a recent YouTube video compared the total number of pixels in a 720p display to those found in the XR display, and it’s more than double the pixels of a native 720p display.

    The whole “it’s an iPhone 4 display” stuff is utter nonsense.

    hey guys - can someone help me figure out if the issue I am having is normal? I dont want to drive two hours to the apple store for nothing.

    When I have the phone set to silent and have the vibration set to anything but syncrhonized and I receive a call - there are two loud taps I hear from the bottom of the phone not sure if the speaker or taptic engine. Is this a bug on ios?

    Doesn't happen on synchronized.

    Could you see if you have it as well?

    I got the Blue. Was a tough decision between Red and Blue, but Blue won in the end. It fit better with my Apple Watch (which is silver, with a blue band). It looks great, but I would have had a great phone if I had choosen red aswell.

    I went for blue because I could get it a discount, but yellow would have been my first choice. I've only had it for two weeks, but I still love looking at it (you don't often look directly at the back). I would've never gone for a grey or white; they make the phone so boring in comparison. Coral isn't my thing, red would've been cool but was essentially the same as on iPhone 8.
