I have been with Verizon for quite a while but got tired of the semi expensive bills. A little while back here I made the leap to T-Mobile and I love it. I was with them before and not sure why I left but anyways I’m back. But that’s not the good part. While with Verizon I was using the XS Max and it was and is an amazing phone. However I’ve seen several reviews about the XR and decided to give it a shot. Well I LOVE this phone. I feel like I didn’t lose that much screen real estate at all. Maybe about four tenths of an inch...maybe but hardly noticeable. The main thing about this phone that is awesome is the battery! Two consecutive days of taking it off the charge at 7:45am and not having to charge it up until about 2am is impressive. Mind you I have all my apps on here that I had on my XS Max(minus the Verizon apps obviously) and it functions smoothly! Also for some reason it fits noticeable easier in my hand than the Max. I was hung up on the size of the device for some reason but it’s really not that noticeable. I have a few friends who have this phone and all of them recommended it. The biggest test for me was the camera and the camera test surprised me as well. Doing my comparison on Apple’s website I saw that there were some minor difference between the two camera wise but after taking several pics you can hardly tell the difference. Having the XR makes me realize that I don’t have to go out and have the high end iPhone anymore and this might be the reason Apple stalled on the release of the XR until the public snatched up the Max and regular XS. My advice to anyone switching carriers, doing an upgrade or coming over to Apple is heavily consider the XR when eyeing the iPhone line up. In my honest opinion you can’t go wrong and you’ll save yourself a ton of money.
