I have an opportunity to sell my 6s and get a new 128GB XR or 128GB 11. Price will be the same, as I am using accumulated credit card points.

Any opinions on which to go with? Is the 11 too new and possible hardware bugs have not been discovered?

Thanks for your help.

I'd pick the 11 all day, every day. Especially given the price is the same. It looks like you keep phones for a while, so I'd get the latest version as it should last the longest.

Totally the 11! I don’t think I’ve seen one person say they’d go for the Xʀ instead of the 11 unless they are trying to save every dollar they can.

Improved camera, enhanced processor, longer battery life...I mean...there you go. Plus you said they are the same price as well right? The 11 would be my pick if I were you.

11 is basically a slight upgraded Xr which has been shopping for a year now, but sure what hardware glitches there could be...

Absolutely get the 11! The XR offers no real benefit over the 11. That said, you can’t really go wrong with either one.

Definitely go for the 11. Only reason to get the XR is if you already had one and was looking to upgrade.
