Got mine too. Absolutely perfect. Like new bar battery 96%. Chuffed.
Just got mine today. No scratches on screen. Needs a little wipe over, 90% battery. Will have a proper look over and report back. But happy at £239.99.
I bought an XR couple of months back for similar price, excellent condition, I was very disappointed but could not be bothered with the return. Colour around the camera was all gone. I have bought from giff gaff and O2 before which were great.
Do you literally swap the sim over and off you go?or is set up complicated
You bought a 64gb and they sent you a 512gb? I certainly wouldn’t have been contacting them questioning a couple of “small marks” on it in that situation!
Really good price for the XR in my opinion. Ok the battery might be worn, but apart from that it’s likely to be supported for what 2-3 more years? And it’s got the full face screen etc. From my experience MusicMagpie “good” is really good condition, BUT I did once have a faulty one from them (iPhone SE that fell off the network every 5 minutes) so that doesn’t bode quite so well for their quality control processes, and it did take about two weeks to return/replace it.
PRICEWINS code coming up expired for me
I prefer the gel ones lol x
Wow that’s a good price. Got something similar from Amazon just not as cheap. Aah noted it’s flexible. Was told “not flexible please”. Young people (annoyed)
Fantastic news!! I absolutely love mine. I got this clear case and screen protectors off Amazon to go with it x Comwinn Compatible with iPhone XR Case with [Tempered Glass Screen Protector], Clear Anti-Scratch Shock Absorption Cover Case for iPhone XR (6.1 inch) Clear https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07QTJLV8B/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_FNC1P2HH0PRGWSHAB1FT?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Lots of people here work with technology and phones every day... I gave you objective reasons why people would want an XR over an SE then you gave your very specific reasons to you why it wasn't relevant.
You’ve got me all wrong I’m discussing each point in each post, maybe I should’ve just popped it all in a single post The reason for my participation in this thread is because I like to know what people think, it’s my job to do so. I buy , sell, repair these things all day every day. I like customer input and public conversation to gauge where everyone is at
Maybe you are now but you didn't mention any of this until later... you started with the XR is too big, then it was too slow (even though you won't notice the speed difference), then the battery life was irrelevant because you always have sockets nearby... have you considered that other people may have other needs, requirements and priorities to you? Some people will buy an XR solely because it looks modern and is not based on a 7 year old design... I give up. If you already have all the answers for why the SE is better than the XR, then why even ask...?

iPhone Xr: Apple's Budget Phone
The iPhone Xr is the twelfth-generation of Apple's iPhones with 18 models previously available to consumers. The original iPhone hit the rapidly emerging smartphone market in 2007, just over ten years prior to the 2018 release of the iPhone Xr. Previous Apple iPhone models still available are the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus. Newer releases include 2017's iPhone X and the Apple's 2018 flagship models, the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max.
Launched in September 2018 alongside the iPhone Xs and Xs Max, the iPhone Xr is the cheaper but more practical version of the latest iPhone. This being said, the iPhone Xr still showcases some amazing technology, including an advanced 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display, A12 Bionic Chip and next-generation Neural Engine. This buyer's guide is an in-depth look at the iPhone Xr and will help you decide whether you want to upgrade.
iPhone Xr Features
The 2018 iPhone models deliver plenty of new features for users to enjoy, but do they add up to a massive improvement on the X and the iPhone 8? The main iPhone Xr features are:
An advanced LCD screen – Along with a stunning choice of six cover finishes, the iPhone Xr also delivers the most advanced LCD screen yet seen in a smartphone. The 6.1-inch edge-to-edge Liquid Retina display is colour accurate while precision-milled glass, sub-pixel antialiasing and advanced pixel masking let the display follow the curves of the phone. This is enhanced by a backlight design that stretches images right into the corners of the screen. The iPhone Xr's screen supports fast touch and swipe gestures while a new haptic touch feature instantly launches the camera or flashlight.
A world-leading bionic chip – Among other standout innovations of the iPhone Xr is its powerful A12 Bionic Chip with a state-of-the-art Neural Engine. The 7-nanometer chip is industry-leading and unlocks experiences for the user that include great gaming, photography and video editing, all supported by an extended battery life. Face ID authentication works with the TrueDepth camera system giving total security via a simple glance whether unlocking the phone, using Apple Pay or accessing secure apps.
A 12-megapixel camera – The iPhone's 12MP camera with its f/1.8 aperture wide-angle lens is teamed with new depth control to take successful selfies and portrait photos. A range of studio effects can be easily created and added, adding depth to the iPhone Xr's photographic capabilities.
The advanced iOS 12 operating system – The iOS 12 is a highly functional operating system that totally recreates the way users communicate and share. With the iOS 12, Screen Time lets you take control of the time you spend interacting with your iOS devices; any app you download works with Siri Shortcuts and the latest privacy innovations ensure no one can track you on the web.
iPhone Xr Colours
Now you not only have to weigh up the advantages and disadvantages of an iPhone Xr from a technical point of view, but you also have to make a decision on your favourite cover colour. For the first time in quite a while, Apple is offering a choice of six stylish case finishes. One finish is crisp and cool classic white, while the black design stands out from the crowd with its nuanced hues created by an innovative seven-layer colour process. The other four colours are coral, yellow, blue and product(red).
The iPhone Xr covers are crafted from 7000-series aerospace aluminium and glass, making them dust, splash and water resistant to a rating of IP67. This means they are safe from everyday spills, including your morning tea and coffee. The front glass is more durable than ever, while the glass panel at the back enables wireless charging.
Alternatives to the iPhone Xr
All existing iPhone models are highly functional with choice coming down to personal preference, what your smartphone is going to be used for, and your bank balance. The iPhone X range comes with a higher price tag. Although Apple's iPhone has always been competing with Samsung's Galaxy range of smartphones, but Apple's iOS software has always had definite advantages. With iOS, when you learn how to use one Apple product, you can find your way around them all, while updates are easy, security is strong, and new devices don't come overloaded with apps you probably don't want. Apple iPhones are definitely easy to personalise to your own needs.
Other smartphones you might want to compare to the Apple iPhone Xr are the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with its Infinity AMOLED and superb camera, the OPPO Find X that impresses with its curved AMOLED and pop-up camera module, or the Huawei P20 Pro with a notched AMOLED and a powerful Leica triple camera with a 3x optical zoom and the ability to take awesome night shots.
iPhone Xr Specs
Display size: 6.1-inch
Retinal Display: LCD, 1,792 x 828 pixels
Pixel density: 336 ppi
Dimensions: 150.9mm x 75.7mm x 8.3mm
Mobile software: iOS 12
Camera: Single 12MP
Front facing camera: 7MP with Face ID
Video captures: 4K
Processor: Apple A12 Bionic
Storage: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB
Battery: Apple claims it will last 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 8 Plus
Authentication: Face ID (no fingerprint option)
Special specifications: Water-resistant to IP67; dual-SIM capabilities (nano-SIM and e-SIM); wireless charging; Face ID, Animoji
To help you way up the pros and cons of the iPhone Xr vs iPhone Xs here is a brief comparison of the major differences between the two models. Both models use iOS 12 but with the iPhone Xr you get a slightly larger phone with a generous screen size of 6.1-inch compared to the Xs's 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED screen. This does mean that the iPhone Xr weighs in a few grams heavier than the Xs model. Other functions remain similar although Apple claims a slightly longer battery life for the iPhone Xr. One of the major visible differences is the choice of six cover finishes.

iPhone Xr Accessories
The iPhone Xr comes with a USB Power Adapter, Lightning to USB Cable, and EarPods with Lightning connector.
While the iPhone Xr does come with a Lightning Charger for standard charging, you can guarantee you'll never lose power for opting for the iPhone Xr wireless battery chargers and accessories. With a 10,000mAh Powerstation XL wireless portable battery giving over 48 hours of charge, you'll never risk running out of power at a vital moment. Just place the phone on top of the Powerstation and push the start button to have 5W of power wirelessly directed to your iPhone Xr.
With its discreet styling that features non-slip TPU top and bottom panels and soft-touch housing, the Powerstation is light and portable, slipping neatly into a handbag or briefcase when not in use. The four-light LED power indicator display shows the charging status and the current battery life.
Another charging accessory is the attractive Charge Stream Desk Stand. This holds phones at a convenient angle for easy use while delivering up to 10W of fast-charging wireless power. Let your phone charge while you work and it's always powered up when it's time to be on the go.
If you spend a lot of time in the car, then the Vent Charge Stream is the right charger option for you. Charge your iPhone Xr at a safe height for glancing at the GPS whilst you're on the move. Check out the hotukdeals pages for discounts and vouchers on iPhone charging accessories.
How Do You Find out which iPhone You Already Have?
If you're thinking of upgrading your iPhone it is useful to know which model you already have. There are two easy ways to do this. On an older phone, prior to iOS 10.3 simply turn it over and look for the very small print on the back that is located near the bottom of the phone. This will say Model: A - followed by four numbers. Write this down and visit a site such as iPhone Life to look up the model you already own.
If your iPhone is iOS 10.3 or later, to find out the exact model:
Open the "Settings" app.
At the top, look for your Apple ID/iCloud profile photo and your name – tap on this.
Scroll down until you see Your Devices – the first one should be your iPhone.
Tap on it.
Find device info which will say Model – and there it is!
iPhone Xr Pros and Cons
If the descriptions and specs have tempted you to purchase the iPhone Xr, listing the pros and cons may make the decision simpler:
A choice of six colours: black, white, coral, yellow, blue, and product(red).
The Liquid Retina HD display architecture with its extended all-screen concept.
The six-core A12 bionic chip coupled with the Neural Engine, 15 per cent faster than the previous A11 chips.
A 625 cd/m2 maximum brightness level which is top class.
Excellent battery-stress test scores.
Support for Dolby vision and HDR10 content.
Quad-LED true-tone flash, 4K-2160p video-recording and sapphire crystal lens cover.
The choice of finishes on the splash-proof all-screen case.
A Sim free option for if you don't wish to be tied to a contract carrier.
A display resolution of only 1792 x 828 pixels and a measly 326 ppi pixel density score.
With its retail release date of late October, the iPhone Xr will still be a big seller when Black Friday and Cyber Monday come around, so make sure these dates are in your diary especially if you are thinking of surprising someone with an iPhone Xr for Christmas. Black Friday 2018 falls on Friday, November 23rd with Cyber Monday following on November 26th.

Should be BAN for phones less than 100gb storage!!!
Bought from these before Christmas. Paid for xr 128gb and they sent a 256gb. Also sold as A grade but had a couple of marks but nothing terrible. When I contacted them showing the pictures they gave me an extra £15 back and also sent the genuine box for free as it was for a present for my son. Phone had 97% battery so definitely a good buy and excellent company to buy from.
I mean thats cheap for an apple battery, should probably just pay it tbh, cheaper then buying a new phone.
Yeah my iPhone battery health is 85% and noticed it lasts about 15% -20% less than normal I charger it at night and throw it on charge maybe once for a hour mid day (lol) then apple want £69 for new battery
In my experience, almost all batteries 85% or under on an iPhone exibit symptoms of degradation, such as turning off before 0%, discharging quickly, inflating in size or not reaching 100%. We do see some fail before 85%, but 85% is "the golden number" in my business

iPhone XR - 64GB - Orange - Vodafone - Good condition @ Music Magpie / Ebay£218.69 Free P&P FreeeBay Deals
I bought their 'certified' refurb of an iPhone 11 128gb and it came today. Condition is immaculate, not even the slightest scratch anywhere on it. Battery health is a little disappointing at 84% but can live with that.
Received today , Grade C - good , not a mark on it & 90 % battery life ... excellent for £256 ! Will definitely use Loop again
That's great, congrats. Does it have true tone?
Received mine today. Grade “B” not a mark on it and 92% battery life. Well pleased for £275
Was tempted by a grade b iPhone 11 for my lad, but the description of the condition on the website wasn't inspiring despite them list b as "Very Good (Excellent)" "Grade B Mediocre cosmetic condition – moderate signs of use, full working order Can include: Heavy scratches or dents to casing, light screen marks"

Apple iPhone XR 64/128/256GB (Unlocked) - preowned/refurbished/good £229.49 from mywit_uk/ebay£229.49eBay Deals
No, it's just marketing made-up by Apple. Along with Super Retina and Liquid Retina. It does make a difference, but you often overlook it with lower-cost devices.
I thought retina display is the maximum resolution a human eye can see, so not sure if more resolution that that makes any difference (confused)
I received my XS 64gb grade C today and visually it's almost perfect - no scratches, only the speaker is little dirty, battery reports %87. Overall I'm very happy - thanks op
Got the last one (Grade B 64GB) yesterday & it turned up just after lunch - didn't expect it till tomorrow! Looks fine with battery reporting 91% - upgrading from a 6s. Needing to update IOS as was on v13 but all seems good on first impressions, so would have no issues buying from them again.
I got an iPhone 8 for my daughter same place and same network just obviously cheaper It came in a third party box with a brand new cable and plug. The phone itself was wrapped as if you purchased direct from Apple and was absolutely pristine. Also battery health is 100% so presumably had been replaced. I'm not 100% sure but my guess is they get these handsets direct from Apple
What does refurbished even mean? I'm guessing they haven't replaced the battery so you would be getting a 3year old used battery. Does anyone actually know what these companies do to "refurbished" phones. I'm guessing it's just pairing them up with a cable and a box.
Errr it’s still a 3 year old refurbished phone what ever way you try dress it up
Yeah I understand that but doesn't it still retail £280-£300ish from places like music magpie also refurbished?
Errr it’s a 3 year old refurbished phone

Apple iPhone XR Unlocked 64GB 128GB 256GB Seller refurbished £265.45 at loop_mobile ebay£265.45 Free P&P FreeeBay Deals
The iPhone SE arrived from cheapest electrical today. Grade B . Mint condition . No marks . Original box and charging cable and pin. Seems to confirm what they told me on the phone - barcode sticker on the box is a Tesco Mobile one. battery health 100% and same price as this deal with the voucher code .
further Further to my experience with loop_mobile - i'm sure they work out well for a lot of people, in which case great and well worth the risk. As I said above, the iphone 11 pro max is on its way back to loop mobile for the reasons above. The 11 pro max from cheapest_electrical came this morning, and its in ORIGINAL box, ORIGINAL charger and cable (not that it matters too much!),and i cant see a single scratch on the phone and it was a Grade B. Also under Apple Care until end October 2021 plus 12 months warranty from cheapest electrical themselves. Cost £30 more than the loop mobile one, but the best thing? Battery health at 100% LOOOL. So will definitely be keeping it unless something drastic happens. Overall experience - cheapest electrical answer phone VERY quickly, and ebay messages much quicker than loop mobile. loop dont answer phone at all, and are quite slow to respond to ebay messages. cheapest electrical source all their phones via Tesco mobile - or so they claimed on the phone - indeed the 11 pro max I got has a Tesco code on the box. They UNOFFICIALLY claim (verbally on the phone) the battery health is usually more than 90% - I got 100% so happy with that. I was so impressed with cheapest electrical that I've just ordered an iphone SE 2020 for my little one , using the ebay code , and works out same price as the deal mentioned here. Definitely on my preferred seller list for future second hand phone purchases. Having said that, if loop mobile work out good for people, then go for it . Please dont take this as a negative review for them - its just my experience of them and I will NOT be leaving a negative review for them - at least they accepted the return so happy with their service, although a bit slow.
Heat added 🔥 I know this an iPhone thread but Samsung is offering £350 cashback for the XR regardless of storage size if anyone's looking to get the new S21s.
Good price but I think I'll pass. Currently undergoing a return of the iphone 11 max Pro I got off them earlier this week. No history of the phone on apple care which makes me question where the phone is from if apple don't even know about it. Still waiting for them to reply but in the meantime sourced a slightlu more expensive 11 pro max from cheapest electrical. Will be happy to post opinions when I get it

Apple iPhone XR 64GB Black - Unlocked (Refurb - Good) £292.49 Delivered using code @ envirofone£292.49£324.9910% offEnvirofone.com Deals
My point was it's cheaper than anywhere else, hence the post.
This phone is so dated now,no one should be paying these prices and tie themselves to a 24 month contract for it now.
I've compared the price on O2 and vodaphone and they're both more expensive for the XR. £816.23 with O2. £1,225 with voda for only 6gb.
EE are living in their own world with this pricing thinking they are special or something (:I so happy I got rid of them and their overpriced contract,I get better coverage and speed with both O2 and Voda too
