Apple shares bite-sized quotes from the overwhelmingly positive iPhone XR reviews

iDownloadBlog recently rounded up not only first YouTube reviews but also the most popular big media reviews of the new iPhone XR, and now it’s Apple’s turn to do the same. Earlier this morning, the Cupertino technology giant issued a press release highlighting the best bite-sized quotes from the overwhelmingly positive iPhone XR reviews.

The press release reads:

Reviewers around the world have put iPhone XR through its paces and are sharing their impressions of the newest member of the iPhone family. That includes everything from its 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display, advanced camera system that creates dramatic portraits using a single camera lens, all-day battery life and six beautiful finishes: White, Black, Blue, Yellow, Coral and (PRODUCT)RED.

Check out the quotes Apple highlighted.

The colors are stunning, battery life is great, Face ID is still industry-leading technology, iOS gestures are intuitive, the camera is superb and performance is fantastic. This is the iPhone to buy.

Dollar for dollar, the XR is almost certainly the best iPhone Apple has ever made.

Tom’s Guide

iPhone XR delivers fast performance, great cameras and longer battery life than other flagship phones, all in a colorful and affordable package.


iPhone XR is the Goldilocks of iPhones with a big screen, fantastic cameras and future-proof power.


iPhone XR arguably offers the best blend of size and usability. Build quality is up to Apple’s usual standards, which is to say it’s impeccable.

Apple’s also done some extremely detailed work to make the rounded corners of the LCD perfectly match the corners of the phone itself—work I desperately wish other companies would do.


Even though the XR is Apple’s mid-range iPhone, the feel is very much that of a piece of nicely crafted jewelry. It’s weighty, with a gorgeous 7-layer color process laminating the back of the rear glass, giving it a depth and sparkle that’s just unmatched in consumer electronics.


iPhone XR takes beautiful shots in Portrait Mode, which gives you the ability to change background depth. It also includes Smart HDR, allowing you to snap multiple pictures at different exposures at the same time to get the best photo.

You’ll love, love, love the advanced Portrait Mode that includes Stage Light Mode which blackens out the background. The all-new Depth Control lets you adjust the depth of field even after you’ve shot your image making your photos richer and even more spectacular.

PC Mag (India)

You’re getting a truly superb phone which does everything with a considerable degree of expertness. Pound for pound, this makes it the best mainstream flagship phone in the market.

Apple also shared some nice portraits taken by users around the world on their iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max using the improved Portrait shooting mode with Depth Control.
