iPhone XR : Does the Liquid Retina display takes the Lead.

The Liquid Retina screen

Apple is never one to shy away from some marketing hyperbole, and the iPhone XR comes with a ‘new’ type of LCD, a screen that’s been designed to allow it to make this curved, ‘all-screen’ display.

The effect is much like the LCD screens Apple has made before, to be honest, as they’ve always been colorful and sharp, but with the new ‘Liquid Retina’ display things are supposed to closer to the high-end OLED screen.

We’ll delve more into the quality of the screen later in this review, but it’s one of the key differences you’ll want to consider if you’re thinking about going for the less-costly iPhone.

How does the iPhone XR compare to the iPhone XS?

We’ve already written a comprehensive discussion of the differences between the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max, but for the sake of convenience, we’ll outline the important points here as well. We’ll also focus on the regular iPhone XS here as it’s the more likely alternative if you’re looking for something in the XR’s price range.

  1. The iPhone XR starts at $749, while the iPhone XS starts at $999. Saving money is cool.
  2. At 6.1 inches, iPhone XR has a technically larger display than the 5.8-inch iPhone XS.
  3. We say “technically” because you’re also sacrificing resolution with the XR. The iPhone XR’s display only has a resolution of 1792×828 at 326 ppi, while the XS has a resolution of 2436×1125 at 458 ppi. That’s good enough to avoid seeing jagged edges, but the XS’s display is in a different class entirely.
  4. That’s mainly because the iPhone XS has an OLED display while the iPhone XR has a “Liquid Retina” LCD display. With OLED displays, you get true blacks and more accurate coloring in general.
  5. Both phones house Apple’s powerful new A12 Bionic chip, so you shouldn’t see much difference in app performance between the two.
  6. If there is a difference, it’s likely due to the RAM, as the iPhone XR only has 3GB while the iPhone XS has 4GB.
  7. At 6.84 ounces, the iPhone XR is ever so slightly heavier than the iPhone XS (which weighs 6.24 ounces). This is a tiny difference and one you’ll barely notice.
  8. The iPhone XR comes in six different colors, while the iPhone XS is only available in three.
  9. The iPhone XR’s battery should deliver around 15 hours of internet use, while the iPhone XS will deliver only around 12.
