    "No 1080P? That sucks"
    "Pocophone screen is so much better than iPhone XR!!"

    Haha yeah. Someone send this to Unboxed?

    I was listening to The Verge podcast...

    basically the biggest complain of Nilay Patel was the change of brightness if you look at the Xr off-angle and the thickness of the glass

    But as he mentioned, most of the guys can't see it.

    I should have time this weekend to visit the mall and see a demo unit.

    I was listening to The Verge podcast and he mentioned that he’s really picky when it comes to screen. Nonetheless, it is a great iPhone for its price.

    I wonder how much cashout Globe will charge for the 256gb when this officially arives here. Considering getting this over the XS max since it is a much “cheaper” alternative.

    'Been checking their website for updates kasi I'm planning to do the same. I was at Robinsons Galleria din kanina and checked out the new iPhones. The iPhone XS Max's screen/display was just way too big and I think the one on the iPhone XR's would just be about right.

    Which color are you eyeing on? #iPhoneXRProductRed

    Still undecided as of now. Black, white and red are my choices. There’s no gold option for the XR BTW does Globe have Demo units of the XR in their stores? Haven’t seen an XR in flesh yet.

    I wish Saudi did not implement the additional taxes last year. Gadgets were way cheaper before.

    Nope - they don't have them in yet. The staff can't confirm din when I asked them. I'm really excited to see the red iPhone XR - either the red or the black one will do for me. :love:

    I have not used a Plus model iPhone and I currently have a PocoF1 (shown on the video below) - based from this clip, I think I should have a lot of fun with the XR and the screen quality won't be a problem.
    I've always opted for steel or black colored phones but really confused this time what color to get.

    Hmm stores here in Singapore are actually selling the iPhone XR cheaper than the Apple Store.

    I will wait until globe stores have them on display. Still undecided if getting the XS max or XR. Will get from globe since my plan is currently eligible for renewal.

    Power Mac Center just posted the teaser. Looks like the XR is set for a November 16 launch.
