Best iPhone XR Deals for November 2018

Best iPhone XR Deals: Hoping to get your hands on Apple’s latest “affordable” smartphone? Dive into our collection of the best available iPhone XR deals.

With the ever-increasing price of Apple iPhones, describing £749 as an “affordable” rate might be a bit of a stretch, but the iPhone XR still does plenty to warrant its price tag, particularly when compared with the iPhone XS and XS Max.

Boasting a ‘liquid retina’ display, the iPhone XR holds it own against most AMOLED smartphones even though it has a pixel density of 326 ppi. Unlike some iPhones of old (we’re looking at you iPhone 7), the iPhone XR has a respectably robust battery life.

In his iPhone XR review, Trusted Reviews’ very own Max Parker explained: “After taking the phone off charge at 8am, the iPhone XR will easily see me through to midnight without requiring low-power mode and with roughly 30% remaining. That’s with multiple email accounts, photos constantly being backed up, and the usual array of browsing, messaging, gaming and calls.”

Perhaps the most impressive feature of the iPhone XR is that it boasts the same blazing fast A12 chip that can be found in both the iPhone XS and XS Max, allowing you to get the same high-end performance for a lower price.

Going down the Microsoft route and eschewing a ninth iteration, the iPhone XR  serves as the next device in Apple’s line of entry-level smartphones (in comparison to its flagship products).

Despite its somewhat dated design and lacklustre battery life, the iPhone 8 still managed to wow us all at Trusted Reviews for its super fast processing and ambitious camera which was capable of taking some fantastic shots. With all that in mind, the iPhone XR has some pretty big shoes to fill, not only in surpassing the iPhone 8 but also in being a worth purchase in the same market as the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

The iPhone XR may have adopted the borderless style of the iPhone X but the handset will still retain the same LCD screen that can be found in the iPhone 8 Plus. Going a step beyond the iPhone 8 Plus however, the iPhone XR’s battery will last for an extra hour and a half – which could prove very handy for those late nights home. Opting for the cheapest of Apple’s three new iPhone’s won’t see you penalised on the speed front either, with the iPhone XR housing the same A12 Bionic Chip that can be found in the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.


How much data do you need?

Here’s a question that with determine which plan you go with more than any other. Higher data contracts will take a toll on the price you pay either upfront or on a monthly basis, but whichever it is, the surplus will be there. Luckily for most of us, however, if you’re a casual social media user (like myself), then there’s no need to worry about consuming too much data.

Social media platforms have been optimised to consumer very low amounts of data, meaning that you’ll be perfectly content with a monthly allowance of between 4-8GB. If you’re the type of person to go one step beyond (watching Netflix during work meetings totally counts) then you’ll need something in the 20-40GB range.
