So conflicted about what to do between these two models. Based on past usage I don't think I would use the 128, but it's certainly nice to know I have it. At the end of the day I think I would rather have the better screen on the Xs, but I'm paying $250 more for that - that's a lot compared to other things I could buy. I don't care about the better camera. I do like that the Xr has a bit of a bigger screen and a little better battery life. Interested in any thoughts from the community.

the screen killed it for me. 6.1" screen with that low of ppi. cant do 1080p. The bezels make the phone look like a knockoff. Single camera is alright but its nice having another zoom lens that doesn't have degraded quality like zooming on a single camera system. The stainless sides do feel super nice if you use your phone without a case its very premium feeling compared to raw aluminum. The xs has one more gig of ram from what im reading.
the screen alone is worth 280$ more if you where to break it(also another bad thing about having an oled phone) but the xs is worth more then 250$ more in price difference.

I would a case so the body doesn't matter. I do agree that the screen is a huge factor between the two.
