Apple iPhone XR: Design

The device has an almost bezel-less design with a notch cutout at the top to house the Face ID system.

Apple iPhone XR: Hardware Performance

The Apple iPhone XR is powered by the Apple A12 Bionic chipset based on the 7nm manufacturing process. The processor is coupled with 3GB RAM and 64GB storage on the base variant with no microSD card slot. Though the phone has a single SIM card slot, the device does support an e-SIM, which makes it a dual SIM smartphone. The A12 Bionic is one of the most powerful mobile chipsets with a highly capable custom GPU from Apple. Thanks to a low-resolution screen, the iPhone XR is one of the best smartphones to play high-fidelity games like PUBG and Fortnite.

Apple iPhone XR: Camera Performance

The Apple iPhone XR has a single 12MP camera at the back and a 7MP selfie camera at the front. This is also one of the first iPhones with support for portrait mode that uses a single camera. The device is capable of capturing 4K videos @60fps and the device is also capable of editing a 4K video footage. Though the smartphone does misses out on some features like a dedicated telephoto lens or ultra-wide-angle lens, this is still one of the best smartphones for taking photos and videos.

Apple iPhone XR: Price To Specs Ratio

The Apple iPhone XR was originally launched in India for Rs. 81,900 and the phone has received consecutive price cuts. The smartphone currently retails for Rs. 51,999, making it the most affordable iPhone with Face ID system. The device has a premium design with features like IP67 water and dust resistance. The phone is also powered by a powerful processor, which makes the iPhone XR a great flagship smartphone coming from Apple.

Apple iPhone XR: Important Features/Highlights

The Apple iPhone XR runs on iOS 13 and the phone offers a completely bezel-less design. Additionally, the phone looks premium and supports fast charging and wireless charging. The device is most likely to get software updates for at least 4 years (from the launch date), which makes it future proof. The iPhone XR has all the features that one might look for in a flagship smartphone. However, unlike most of the smartphones that cost more than Rs. 50,000, this phone has a 720p display which is a bit of a letdown.

Apple iPhone XR: Verdict

The Apple iPhone XR is for those who want to get into the Apple ecosystem without spending a fortune. It has almost all the features that one might look for on a premium smartphone. Though the iPhone XR cannot be called as a truely flagship smartphone, the phone still offers almost all the features offered on a flagship iPhone with at a much lower price tag.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.


Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.


Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.


The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.


This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
