I recently purchased the new iPhone XR with the aim to improve my Instagram and blog images. This new iPhone is ideal for fashion bloggers as it is a slightly pared down version of the iPhone XS but has the image quality that you need.
It has a sharp display and the ability to capture intricate details with fantastic image stabilisation. For selfies, it has a portrait mode on the front-facing camera. It also comes in some great colours, and I opted for the new red version so that it was easy to find in my handbag.
Apart from its aesthetics, it has the most extended battery life ever in an iPhone and the fastest performance. It is water and splash resistant and can be immersed in one meter deep water for 30 minutes without becoming damaged.
This iPhone also has Face ID which I love. The speakers are even louder and clearer than previous iPhone versions.
Call quality is also good, and for someone who is always on conference calls in different locations, this is imperative. The wireless connectivity is also excellent.
So overall what are the pros and cons of the new iPhone XR?
- Excellent battery life
- Has similar features as the XS however costs less
- Fantastic performance
- Excellent camera
- Comes in a great range of colours
- There is no fast charger included
- Is slightly bigger than other iPhones which some users may not like
Personally, I love this new iPhone XR and am enjoying the camera capabilities which is the main reason I upgraded.
