Unlike the iPhone Xs and Xs Max , Apple packs the iPhone Xr with a 6.1-inch screen size that has a resolution of 828 x 1,792 pixels. The screen density itself is 326 ppi and Apple calls this smartphone screen with a Liquid Retina call.
Yes! You could say the screen resolution of the iPhone Xr is lower when compared to other mid-range Android smartphones. For example, Huawei Mate 20 has a FullHD + screen and also has a much higher density pixel.
So, what are the advantages that can be achieved by the iPhone Xr with pixel resolution and density as mentioned above? Undeniably, this is certainly related to the duration of battery life installed. The relatively low screen resolution on the iPhone Xr is an advantage.
As tested by PhoneArena, when the iPhone Xr is used to surf the internet, the installed battery capacity can last up to 15 hours. While when used to play videos, the battery can last up to 16 hours.
Especially when compared with the “old brother”, iPhone 8 Plus . There is a significant increase. The battery on the iPhone 8 Plus can only last up to 13 hours when used to surf the internet and only 14 hours when used to play videos.
How about if the battery life of the iPhone Xr is compared to the battery on the iPhone Xs Max. Again and again, the iPhone Xr is slightly superior. Used for surfing, the iPhone Xs Max battery only lasts up to 13 hours and is used to play videos only last up to 15 hours.
In addition, PhoneArena also noted that the iPhone Xr deserves to be chosen as a smartphone that has the “best battery”. In testing, the iPhone Xr battery can last up to 11 hours 1 minute and shift the iPhone 8 Plus which only lasts 10 hours 35 minutes.
Although superior in the duration of a longer lifetime, does not mean the iPhone Xr battery has no weaknesses. Yes! Charging speed is a different story. It was recorded, to fully charge the battery it took around 192 minutes. While the iPhone 8 Plus only takes 178 minutes.
