    Xr is simply the perfect size
    Who agree with me?

    I think XS is the perfect size. I went XS to XR and I prefer the XR overall but in-hand feel the XS wins for me. XR is damn close.

    Other than a few occasions, I don’t find my Xs max any difficult than my 8 plus used to be.

    For me it is, so far like everything about the Xr.

    I like the size of the XR too. I have the X now waiting for next years releases to see what they offer in the XR before I get a new iPhone

    XR without a case was almost the sweet spot. With case that’s a whole another story.

    Currently have XS and with caudabe sheath case is perfect size for me.

    Very true. Out of the case the XR is grippy and nice.

    XR is pretty much perfect in every way.
    Display is outstanding no complaints from me but would of been mint if Apple went 1080p.
    Doing so would of kept speck junkies a little happier lol
    I’m hopeful XR series has future 2019 releases with minor tweak here & there staying with LCD display technology

    I'm not sure--I may have been perfectly satisfied with the XR in a X/XS size. As has been noted, putting a case on it makes obviously for a different size feel. The X/XS size in a fairly typical-sized case, such as a Spigen Neo Hybrid (which I have on my XR) would be perfect, I think.

    That said, the XR in the Spigen doesn't feel too large, maybe almost perfect.

    I like the Spigen Liquid Air for the XR.

    XS in an Apple leather case is the perfect size, as was the X in same last year.

    I tried the XR for a few days before exchanging. Probably would have gotten used to it but one-handed typing wasn’t nearly as nice and that wouldn’t have changed.

    All personal opinion, of course.

    My Xr in red was perfect and beautiful, then a spawn of satan allowed me to use his XsMax for a couple of days. I can't unsee the difference in the screens. FML, Still in Holiday return period so now I have a Max. My rationalization is I paid cash for sim free Xr, used Phone upgrade program for Max. See how 5G plays out next year, assuming we aren't smoldering radioactive ash ;) Not sure how resale will be on current phones in a year, I feel the old days of almost breaking even every upgrade is over.

    I have a XR, I think it’s a great phone but would never describe it as having the perfect size. It’s big and bulky, chunky and heavy, and has a bit of a thick bezel.

    Price to pay for the incredible battery life though, and it’s less bulky than a smaller iPhone with a battery case

    The bezels don’t even factor with me, it is thick[er], yes. But I’m willing to believe the majority who purchase this phone, likely think of the weight first than they do the thickness. Maybe it depends on what phone they are upgrading from.

    I agree

    I notice the bezels purely from using a X concurrently (personal line) And it stands out for me

    XR battery life in undeniably excellent. Best ive ever experienced in a phone, personally. But it’s definitely a beefy, hefty phone lol

    A 6.1 inch screen without bezels might be perfect. Now it’s just a bit too wide for one-hand use.

    I’m having a difficulty getting past this. It’s just a tad thicker than the X, but to me it looks cheap.
    I’m still on an iPhone 6 and while there is a frame, the inset black bezel is thin and refined.
    It’s subjective and many say you’ll get use to it just like the notch.

    Are the XR bezels like a few mm more than XS? I can be pretty damn OCD but the XR bezels are something I never notice.

    I like my XR, but it is just a little bit too big with a case... even with a minimal case.

    XS is perfect in every way except for... dun dun dun... PWM.

    Agree that XR is just slightly on the big side. XS in Apple Leather case is perfect to me. Keeping XR as benefits worth it for me.

    Probably one of the most unnecessary points/arguments made about the XR, is the bezels. Remember, forums like this, dissect down every little detail about the XR, that the average ‘non-tech’ Consumer will never care or seemingly notice the bezels being an issue.

    It always baffles me when those complain about the bezels on the XR compared to what the iPhone was with the previous Gen design, some will always find a way to over-analyze the iPhone beyond reason.

    Given the XR is Apple's most popular iPhone, you can bet Apple considered the size carefully. They could have used a 5.8" if they thought most consumers wanted a small display.

    The XR bezel is literally 1.1 mm thicker than XS.

    People on here are literally complaining over this?

    From this?

    However, with all that being said, it is subjective. What you might find silly, the next person might care about. Even if its a small increase in bezel.
