    I prefer the XR…
    1-Cheaper
    2-Longer battery life
    3-larger screen

    The screen…I’ve seen both the XR and XS and to me, they’re all normal iPhone clear screens.
    And the lack of the 3D Touch kinda sucks, but apple keeps improving the functionally of the Haptic touch, so it might be a good replacement for the 3D Touch later on.

    The XR is the way to go, after trying out both for a week each. The XR besides being more affordable, it’s stronger and longer battery life (which is the most complained about feature on the iPhone besides iOS being unopen for customization like android) last all day for me in constant use and the camera itself (If you consider yourself a serious photographer knows that any editing can be done in a post photo editing app or computer program if you so need)

    As far as screen display goes, sure the oled screen is nice on iPhone X and Xs, but i don’t really think anyone requires that type of brightness when your in public and have had perfectly fine screens from iPhone since the iPhone 4 when it’s retina model first came out. The Liquid Retina still has the retina measurements that is above previous models but without sacrificing battery life!

    There is no longer a need to buy a mophie battery charger case to make it through the day with the XR, and this will save you and any apple elitist who just wants the newest phone even more money and you have even more selections of colors. Truly the best , most practical affordable and stylish, smart decision apple has made with its iPhones since the iPhone 6 and 6 plus.

    Don’t get suckered in to the Xs or Xs max, unless you really just want and don’t need. But all of us need toilet paper, the iPhone XR is the best toilet paper 2ply charming you can buy, but others WANT a duvet (iPhone XS ) Those people in my opinion , are needlessly entitled and impractical and so if the IPhone XS and IPhone XS.

    And like toilets, the money you spend flushes down the same drain, but in this case it’s Apples drain.
