Why You Will Want to Get Your Hands on the iPhone XR

This rounds up the big three for the latest in the iPhone X series

The triumvirate of state-of-the-art smartphones have hit stores worldwide. Soon, Apple users in the Philippines can witness for themselves “brilliant in every way,” too, with the last model in Apple’s latest roll call.

The iPhone XR, albeit the mid-range sibling phone of high-end predecessors iPhone Xs and Xs Max, certainly comes packed with its own attention-grabbing features. Users get the same amazing iPhone X quality plus some fun, unique bonuses: It’s powered by the same A12 bionic chip as the Xs and Xs Max and features an improved wide-angle camera sensor––a steal for an alternative that’s easier on the wallet. “The iPhone XR makes it possible for even more people to have the great experience of the latest iPhone X technology,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “[All] in beautiful new designs, at a more affordable price.”

For Globe Postpaid users, this not only comes as a steal for a deal, but one they can get their hands on very soon. Starting November 9, subscribers of ThePLAN can begin ordering the iPhone XR. Till then, here’s what interested Postpaid users can expect from what has been dubbed “the iPhone to buy” and the “best blend of size and usability.”

The iPhone XR’s refreshing new colorways allow users to pick a phone that perfectly suits their personality.

Apple has strayed from neutrals this time around to introduce six types of finishes for the iPhone XR: the white, black, blue, yellow, coral and (PRODUCT)RED colorways are wrapped in the new groundbreaking aluminum design. “The most durable front glass ever in a smartphone is wrapped in an elegantly matched anodized band made from durable 7000 series aerospace-grade aluminum,” the brand shared. “And the glass back design enables wireless charging.”

It boasts the most durable front glass ever featured on an iPhone.

By far the sleekest mobile design in iPhone history, the iPhone XR sports an all-screen front glass: edge-to-edge, top-to-bottom. It’s future-proof and life-proof, too: dustproof all around with IP67 rated water resistance.

The most advanced LCD in a smartphone treats users to stunning graphics and visuals.

Video streaming, mobile gaming, navigating graphics-intensive apps and everyday tasks altogether are given an immediate upgrade with the iPhone XR’s 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display. As the most advanced LCD in a smartphone and the most color-accurate in the industry, everything viewed on-screen is crisp and true to life.

The iPhone XR’s superior battery life can withstand multitasking functions and last throughout the day.

A feature-packed mobile, a bigger display packaged in a smaller design: a fairly easy assumption here is that the high-performing iPhone XR is doomed to burn quickly through battery life. On the contrary, the latest model outperforms all the flagship phones that came before it. The iPhone XR, Philip Schiller revealed at the Apple’s special event back in September, offers up an entire hour and a half more battery life than the iPhone 8 Plus.

Users get to capture and enjoy stunning photographs.

With its cutting-edge 12 megapixel single-lens wide angle camera, the iPhone XR guarantees more dramatic portraits every single time and high-dynamic-range imaging across all photos. Its equally scene-stealing features include: true tone flash and superb low-light performance, something even the folks at Apple supersede that of the iPhone Xs.
