@ This is detailed comparison between iPhone 8, X, XS & XR, after using each of them for a month.
@ I am also stating the detailed battery performance of each phone.
This is a long review, but its worth if you willing to spend your hard earned money.
BUILT QUALITY :
# iphone 8 and XR have glass front and back, ringed with metal frames (aluminum), which looks more premium and worth the price you pay. But also are susceptible to easy damages.
# iphone X and XS are made of stainless steel, which don't appears that luxurious comparatively, but are more sturdier and less prone to damage compared to 8 and XR.
# Among all iphone 8 is lightest and XR heaviest, with X and XS being almost similarly weighed.
# To me in this parameter, iphone 8 seems the better choice.
# iphone 8 has smallest display(4.7") and XR the biggest(6.1"), with X and XS with same size(5.8"), so is the screen to body ratio.
# Display resolution of X and XS is same and the best amongst all, while 8 and XR is same and lowest ( NOT even FHD ).
Similarly, X & XS have OLED, while 8 & XR have LCD :P
# According to my usage I found X & XS to be much better value for money in terms of display quality.
SYSTEM PERFORMANCE :
# I noticed XS performing slightly better than XR, though both of them have same processor. Followed by X and 8.
# If you are normal user like me then you wont mind using iphone 8 over XS, as 8 can do everything that XS can easily.
# I found X to be better value for money in this segment.
BATTERY PERFORMANCE :
# All 4 phones are equipped with fast charging, wireless charging.
# XR use to last over 20 hours with normal multitasking, with 4G ON continuously all the time.
*XS use to last between 16-18 hours, X did 14-15 hours and 8 use to lasts upto 12 hours.
# With Heavy multitasking, XR lasted over 11 hours, XS did over 9 hours, X lasted over 8 hours and 8 lasted upto 6 hours.
# Certainly XR outshines others in battery performance.
# In this segment, I noticed iphone X to be the best among all when using Rear camera.
* Colours are more punchy and true to real. Night time photography is also excellent.
# XS sometimes does better over X, but not always.
# Front camera of X, XS and XR are same and performs almost similarly.
# Each one supports 4K, OIS, slow motion.
PRICE (64GB) :
8 - Rs.55K
X - Rs.75K
XR - Rs.77k
XS - Rs.99K
# Here certainly 8 is winner :P
P.S: you get a physical home button on iphone 8, which certainly comes handy.
After using each phone, I can conclude that if you are tight on budget then going for iphone 8 is best choice.
If you have 80k to spare, then certainly go for iphone X. And if budget is not in your dictionary, then certainly go for iphone XS.
To me iphone XR is not worth the price at all, except the battery performance, it doesn't have any noticeable parameter.
If you already own a iphone 7, then don't upgrade unless, you have money to waste. If you have 6s or below, then only go for upgrade.
Hope this review helps.
The camera is better compared to my previous android phone. The camera support "live photo" which I disabled it because I'm not used to it. It supports video recording at 4K 60 FPS. The camera also supports panorama mode which gives amazing results. Selfie is also good and the screen light up as flashlight when taking a selfie in the dark.
I'm not a gamer but I play Clash Royale and the game works smoothly. Since the phone has the latest processor I'm sure it won't be a problem even with the latest game.
I'm loving iOS so far but I miss the bottom keys found on Android. iOS is fluid and there are no flaws in the OS which I've encountered. I've got two minor iOS updates after my purchase and love how updates are distributed globally all at the same time. One minor inconvenience I found on iOS is to download apps more than 150 MB I'm forced to connect to wifi and so far I've not found a work around it. I got adapted to gesture navigation like it was something I've been using for ages.
Face ID is an absolute joy to have as I don't have to do anything to unlock my phone, I just hold my phone and the phone is unlocked. And did I mention that Face ID works even in the dark? The lack of notification LED is not a big inconvenience as the screen lights up to show the notification every time I hold up my phone.
Regarding the huge criticism it got for the low screen resolution, I don't see any problem as I hardly stream YouTube in 4K. I can view YouTube videos in 1080p without a problem which I feel is good enough as service providers in India never give enough data speed to stream videos in 4K. Regarding the screen in direct sunlight, there's no problem as the screen is clearly visible even under direct sunlight.
The speakers on this one are a huge plus point over other devices as the speakers give a 3D surround sound like system. I love the speakers on this phone. Regarding the lack of 3.5 mm headphone jack, I see no problem as the phone is bundled with an earphone which connects to the phone.
And yeah If you're wondering how Siri is, let me tell you that google assistant is a much better one. I've installed google assistant and I use google assistant more than Siri as google assistant is more practical. If I were to rate google assistant and Siri on a scale, 10 being the best then I would rate Siri at 5 and google assistant at 9.
Overall I'm extremely happy with my purchase as I got it at 58,500 rupees for the 64 GB version. If anyone wants to give iOS a try then I highly recommend iPhone XR as it is the latest devices from Apple at a reasonable price. The one thing that pushed me into iOS is that Apple gives OS update for 6 years and there is no delay in OS updates. On Android, it is a pain waiting for the manufacturer to release the update after Google outs the update. I hope my simple review of iPhone XR helped you. Thank you for reading. Cheers.
Update 17th Nov 2019:
I'm able to download any file size app without having to depend on Wi-Fi after the recent updates. And the iOS 13 bought lots of new updates. The default image editing app included from iOS 13 is a great one and we can revert to the original image even after saving the edited photo. I love how the camera consistently delivers great images. I kinda miss the wide-angle camera on the iPhone 11 but if you have an iPhone XR it's no big deal. So far I've had no problem with my iPhone XR. With the price drop, this phone is a steal. I'm not gonna buy another latest iPhone because the price drops astronomically when a new generation iPhone is released. For people looking to try a new generation iPhone, this is the perfect deal because even the iPhone 11 has the same screen as iPhone XR. The few differences I noticed between iPhone XR and iPhone 11 is the new wide-angle camera and the front-facing camera wide-angle mode. Peace.
