    I have an X and tested the XR side by side in an Apple store back in November. The screen of the XR is mediocre. Plain and simple.

    I came from a 1080 Android and I absolutely LOVE the XR screen. If you don't want one, if you don't like it, nobody's putting a gun to your head to make you buy one. Honestly I don't know what people expect from a freaking cellphone playing freaking YouTube videos. If that's even the real problem here.

    Text is definitely sharper on the XS.

    XR is a complete rip off.

    That's not what the post said, it said the XR has a higher resolution than can be made out by the human eye. I don't know of it is true or not there is so much hyperbole around screens of all brands and gadgets for that matter...

    You do realise XR's pixel density matches the one of iPhone 5 that came out in 2012... and on a 4 inch screen it didn't look so bad.

    ****ing hell...

    How is it that the same pixel density will look different just because the screen changed sizes?

    Sorry, but you very clearly have no idea what you're talking about.

    The ignorants that have no clue what they are talking about deserve to pay Xs and Max prices

    I think I argued with someone in every single one of those threads.

    What am I doing with my life?

    Agreed. Either OP problem has been “solved”, or we are being trolled here.

    Go for the Xs. Don't go for the cheap option next time.

    Did you even read my post? I said the XR has a better resolution than the eye can distinguish, not the other way around

    why don't you just go with another android flagship? They are practically same price as Xr plus a much better screen, and then maybe wait for this or next years iPhone.

    Colours maybe but not pixel density. Text and faces are well blurry.
