Buying advice iPhone X vs XR

Hey guys.

 

As my contract (my German one) is ending next month, I have to decide what mobile to get next. Sure: It'll be an iPhone.

 

Now I searched on the hp of my network and saw the iPhone X is about the same upfront-price as the XR.

-The XS isn't an option as it's more than 600€.

 

So X is the old "prime" model. Is it better?

The XR seems not a big gap to XS (body, camera, screen) and even has a better battery.

 

Should I go for the X or XR?

As it's better for a discussion I will not name my favourite by now.

 

Cheers,

Also be aware that Apple have now done an update to the x that throttles it in an update you can take the battery thing off if you want

Given the option I’d go for XR

@liggerz87

You mean it just gets slower or is it the better for the battery?

Thought making "old" phones slower is forbidden now

 

@MI5

Because it's newer?

Re: Buying advice iPhone X vs XR

Thanks @liggerz87

Still a bit nervous about face-ID. But every of the new ones has, so no other option.

And what's "E-sim"?
