What is most interesting about iPhone Xr are the features that Apple has left out, as follows:
Display size over quality
The design compromise made for cost reasons was the selection of an LCD-based 6-inch full-screen display, which is less costly than the premium OLED display on the iPhone Xs. However, Apple expended a great amount of effort to create an LCD display that can be pushed to the edges of the phone and provide the color gamut that rivals the best LCD displays on the market.
Rear Camera And Front Camera
The iPhone Xr is equipped with a single camera, instead of the dual set-up of the iPhone Xs. While two cameras are clearly better than one, Apple has leaned heavily on computation photography to make the best out of this single-camera system. At the core is the use of the A12 Bionic processor, which is the same as the one found in the iPhone Xs models, which demonstrates that any feature can be enhanced with enough computational power.

LTE speed improvements negligible to consumers
While the iPhone Xr has the same internals as the more premium iPhone Xs series, the LTE radio in the iPhone Xr is still CAT-12, instead of the improved gigabit-per-second-capable CAT-16 in the iPhone Xs. Of course, designing a CAT-12 RF front end is more affordable than the CAT-16 versions (primarily extra receive chains and 4×4 MIMO); this difference in LTE technology has simply been lost on consumers.

As for the XS Max, as expected, it offers the largest battery Apple has put in an iPhone with 3,174 mAh with the XR coming in just below that with 2,942 mAh. Of the three 2018 iPhones, XR delivers the most use with up to 25 hours of talk time, 65 hours of audio playback, and 16 hours of video.
