I agree with makedon.tom. The Gigabit LTE wasn’t mention, yet it is actually the difference that has me on the fence. I love the color options of the XR, and the lower price is certainly appealing, given that is runs on the same great A12 Bionic chip. As Apple has done an excellent implementation of the LCD screen, I am fine with that trade-off for the price difference. I’m not a photographer. I take basic snapshots. As long as they don’t suck, I’m good with it. The XR is not going to give me sucky snapshots. The XR’s 2x2 MIMO vs the XS’s 4×4 MIMO, QAM and LAA, though? I live in an area with Gigabit LTE available. And this technology is rolling out more and more by carriers. This is the feature that just may push me to spend the extra for the XS.
