Though Apple has updated its iPhone line with a few models, recently, the most talked model is the cheapest and ‘weakest’ iPhone XR. It is priced quite low, starting at $729. And while this price tag doesn’t allow many customers to get their hands on it, the iXR is the cheapest among the newly announced models, including the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. The main reason why it is cheaper is the LCD screen. But the processor is the same as that in the two. So it should be capable of providing excellent performance as well. Today, the benchmark results of this model were released. Let’s take a look.
According to Macworld, the iPhone XR test results are basically the same as the iPhone XS and XS Max, with a difference of a few percents. However, in a GPU benchmark performance test, the iPhone XR test results are even stronger than the iPhone XS and XS Max. It is thought to be related to the fact that the screen pixels are not as high as the latter. The lower resolution can make the A12 Bionic GPU provide a faster frame rate.
Second, due to the screen resolution of 1792 x 828 pixels, the iPhone XR is capable of providing a 19 minutes longer battery life than the iPhone XS Max and more than an hour longer than the iPhone XS. By the way, we have been got acquainted with it way earlier, and we learned its endurance is the best in Apple’s history.
As we can see, the iPhone XR, which is considered to be the most popular iPhone, has benchmark results identical to the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max.
