Is the iPhone XR worth it? Okay let’s just get the obvious out of the way here; is the Apple iPhone XR the newest iPhone model? No. Is the iPhone XR Apple’s fanciest model? No. Is the XR the iPhone with the best camera? That one...is going to be a no you guys. BUT when it comes to great features for dollar value, the XR offers a pretty darn good package.
Read on friend; Whether or not the iPhone XR is worth it, really depends on what you want to use your phone for. The iPhone XR was released in October of 2018, which in iPhone years might seem like an eternity ago but the reality is, it’s only a few years later.
The XR is the most “basic” of the X series, if you can really call any iPhone basic. The iPhone XR was released in October of 2018, which in iPhone years might seem like an eternity ago but the reality is, it’s only a few years later. The XR model still holds up an incredibly good option with standout specs.

- The XR makes an absolutely awesome entry level iPhone, especially if we're talking kids. The larger display offers great viewing and the fun color options don’t hurt either.
- If you’re looking to create digital content and are willing to pay a higher price for a phone that’s more powerful, you might look at the iPhone 11 Pro or 12 Pro.
Overall the iPhone XR has a powerful A12 chip with good performance but some of the camera features and higher resolution display are sacrificed for the price point. Still, the value for the cost makes the refurbished iPhone XR one of the best selling phones at Frank Mobile.
