Suggested March 2024 Top Iphone Xr Features – Best Bang For The Buck?

Apple’s relatively budget friendly iPhone XR launched yesterday, and we’ve got a hands-on look at the colorful device’s top new features. Starting at $749, this 6.1-inch iPhone is significantly cheaper than the iPhone XS, yet comes with many of the same features. Is the iPhone XR the iPhone you should consider purchasing? Watch our video walkthrough as we explore the top iPhone XR features.

$749 starting price $50 storage upgrade

If 64GB of storage isn’t enough for you, the iPhone XR can be configured with 128GB of storage for a mere $50 extra. More times than not, Apple storage upgrades are available at $100 increments, but you can double your iPhone XR storage for just half of that.

6.1-inch display

The iPhone XR, with its 6.1-inch screen, sits between the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max as far as screen size goes. Even though I’m a fan of the 6.5-inch display found on the iPhone XS Max, there’s no denying that it can be a little unwieldy, and I have fairly large hands. 6.1-inches is a more manageable size for operating a smartphone with one hand, while being slightly larger than the iPhone X and iPhone XS display.

A12 Bionic processor

The iPhone XR might be the so-called “budget” phone, but there’s no getting around the fact that it shares much of the same DNA with the flagship iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. In fact, you’ll find the same A12 Bionic processor in the iPhone XR as you do in the iPhone XS. Not only is the A12 faster than the A11 in last generation’s iPhone X, but it’s significantly more capable when it comes to machine learning, graphics, and image signal processing.

Enhanced wide angle camera

Although it lacks the dual camera setup of its higher-end cousin, the iPhone XR features the same wide angle camera found in the more expensive iPhone XS. A 32% larger 12MP sensor yields bigger pixels that result in noticeably better low light performance.

60 FPS front facing camera

Joining the iPhone XS, the iPhone XR features the ability to shoot 1080p video at 60 frames per second with the front-facing TrueDepth camera.


Animoji isn’t new, but given the iPhone XR’s price, it just became a lot more accessible. The launch of the iPhone XR marks the first time that Animoji has appeared on an iPhone that wasn’t the high-end flagship.

Single lens Portrait Mode

Portrait Mode on the iPhone XR is impressive, given that the device features a single wide angle lens instead of the dual lens camera housing of the iPhone X and iPhone XS. Because Portrait Mode on the iPhone XR relies on the wide angle lens, it makes it easier to capture portrait selfies, and comes with enhanced low light performance.

Adjustable depth of field

You can adjust the background blur of Portrait Mode photos by using the Edit function in the Photos app. A future iOS update will also allow you to adjust background blur in real time within the Camera app.

Smart HDR

Smart HDR was one of my favorite new features found on the iPhone XS, as it enables better looking photos that contain dark subjects, bright subjects, or a mixture of both. Smart HDR lets your photos retain detail that might have otherwise been lost, and it does this automatically.

Record Stereo Sound

The iPhone has had stereo playback capability, but just got the ability to record video in stereo with this latest generation of devices. Stereo recording for videos allows you to hear left and right stereo separation directly on your iPhone.

Extended Dynamic Range

If you shoot video at 30 frames per second, the iPhone XR can automatically dip down to 24 frames per second to help out in low light situations.

Advanced Face ID

Six color options

The iPhone XR is the first iPhone since the under-appreciated iPhone 5c to feature a wider array of colors. If you’re tired of the same old space gray, silver, and gold colors, then the iPhone XR, with its white, black, blue, yellow, coral, and red finish options is a breath of fresh air.

Bubble wallpaper

Several new iPhone XR-centric wallpapers help accentuate the colorful nature of Apple’s “budget” iPhone. If you have another iPhone model, though, we’ve extracted the wallpapers for download right here.

Liquid Retina Display

The Liquid Retina display is also the largest LCD that Apple has ever produced for the iPhone. It’s larger than the iPhone 8 Plus display, yet the overall device is physically smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus.

Battery life

When considering the top iPhone XR features, this one might be the most impressive of them all. The iPhone XR features the best battery life of any iPhone ever. It even features better battery life than the high-end iPhone XS Max flagship device.

No Home button

The iPhone XR is the first iPhone sporting LCD technology to ship without a Home button. Just like the iPhone X, intuitive gestures are employed to control many of the vital aspects of your iPhone.

Tap to wake

Tap to wake first appeared with the iPhone X, but this is a feature that’s been a staple of Android phones for years. Once you get used to it, it’s hard to go back to having to physically press a button in order to wake your phone.

Haptic Touch

3D Touch is nowhere to be found on the iPhone XR, so Apple employed the use of haptic feedback for certain interactions. Dubbed, Haptic Touch, this glorified long press operation is handy for invoking the Lock screen flashlight or the various elements within Control Center.


Also, be sure to watch our hands-on video with the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, where we explore over 20 of its best qualities.

Moto G9 Power Review: Top Bang For Buck


Very affordable

Excellent battery

Big, bright display

Water repellent


Poor cameras

Plastic build

Our Verdict

At £179, the G9 Power’s value for money is undeniable. Barring the cameras, it’s a solid budget option that promises literally days of screen-on time, which will please social media addicts and movie streaming fans alike.

Motorola launched the budget G9 Power in the tail-end of 2023, as the last of three phones in the G9 series, which includes the G9 Plus and the G9 Play.

The G9 Play impressed me last year: it neatly packed all the essentials you could want in a handset and tied it with a pretty £159 bow. The G9 Power takes it a step further, offering even more value for money. Here’s our full review.

Design and build 

It’s hard to believe the G9 Power packs a massive 6000 mAh battery when it’s so light, relatively speaking. At 221 g, it’s just a touch heavier than the 200g Moto G9 Play. 

On the back, you’ll find a matte surface textured with concentric ridges which help add grip. It looks hardy yet handsome, with a frosty sheen that doubly kept fingerprints and smudges at bay in my experience.

It’s a certain departure from the G9 Play’s hyper-glossy plastic back, which definitely was not smudge-proof. And oh yeah, the handset’s also water repellent (not waterproof, mind you, so don’t go dunking it in the bath).

While the G9 Power is tall at 6.8in (vs the Play’s 6.5in display), it’s not unwieldy to use, partly because it’s so light. Yes, single-handed use might be slightly difficult if you have smaller hands – in which case you might prefer one of these compact phones – but it wasn’t an issue for me. In fact, I have more difficulty wrangling my weighty Vivo Iqoo 3 day-to-day.

You’ll find a reliable fingerprint scanner on the G9 Power’s back. It might take some getting used to if you’ve already been spoilt with in-screen fingerprint readers, but the central placement makes it easy to reach. Besides, you can always use the face unlock option if you prefer, which surprisingly, worked well even in low light. As for me, I preferred using the plain old code unlock. Call me old-fashioned. 

If you lean heavily on smart assistants, the G9 Power has a dedicated smart assistant button that launches Google Assistant. I didn’t have much use for it – what I found more useful was the trusty 3.5mm headphone jack (no really, call me old-fashioned). There’s also Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity if you prefer wireless listening.

As for Bluetooth, it took me a few attempts to connect the G9 Power to my Bluetooth speakers and earphones. While the G9 Power recognised the audio devices, it couldn’t connect until I reset the Bluetooth connection on both devices a few times – which could mean the issue was on the device side. Still, be warned you might face this small hiccup if most of your Bluetooth speakers are a few years old.

The G9 Power charges via USB-C, and comes with a 20W fast charger – I’ll delve into the battery life a bit later.

A surprisingly stunning display… 

Okay, here’s where you get a noticeable difference between the G9 Power and the G9 Play. While the difference is marginal, the G9 Power offers a much sharper contrast and more vivid, punchier colours.

It’s clear Motorola intended the G9 Power to be an entertainment hub – you can literally spend hours watching content on this phone or endlessly scrolling social media.

While the G9 Power is a step up from the G9 Play, make note it’s still not the best display available on a budget phone. Once again, the Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC, which remains the best budget phone on the market, outdoes the G9 Power – as it did the G9 Play – with a 120Hz FHD+ (1080 x 2400) display with HDR10 support.

Keep in mind, you’ll pay an additional £20 for the Poco X3, and it has a smaller battery. And whether that upgrade is worth it hinges entirely on how you use your phone (do you stream a lot of films or mostly scroll through news or text?). For day-to-day use, the G9 Power will suit you just fine.

Cameras – the Achilles heel

The Moto G9 Power boasts a 64Mp main sensor as a major selling point, but it’s far from its forte. There isn’t a very strong dynamic range or detail – unless you’re in a brightly lit environment – an issue also common to the G9 Play.

While the G9 Power boasts a larger 64Mp camera, you’ll have to activate the Ultra-Res option via the settings first to take shots at native resolution (otherwise it captures pixel-binned 16Mp stills). This gives the image a boost in detail, so it’s perhaps the most useful setting on the camera menu, but still, it can get a tad annoying to remember this setting each time you use the camera.

Night photography isn’t great either. Images lose depth and detail, and colours flatten out even more. The G9 Power is better at low-light close-ups indoors than outdoors, but you do get a fair amount of grain.

The rear cameras also include a 2Mp macro and a 2Mp depth sensor. Like the G9 Play, macro shots didn’t really pick up much detail and it was difficult to get the camera to focus where I wanted it to.

I wouldn’t recommend the G9 Power if you want a solid camera, instead, we’d suggest one of these handsets.

Software and UX

The Power operates on Android 10, but Motorola  promises it will upgrade to Android 11 soon. 

The user experience is simple and clean and almost completely pure to Android, without any bloatware or pre-installed apps. In fact, the OS is so streamlined, you won’t even find a separate album for your Photos, it all goes straight to Google Photos. 

Like the G9 Play, it offers nifty features like turning on the flashlight with a karate chop motion and a three-finger screenshot capture – a detail I loved on the G9 Play. You also get the G9 Play’s ‘Gametime’ mode, which allows distraction-free gameplay. Not much is different on the G9 Power compared to the Play when it comes to user experience – except with a bigger battery you can do even more of it!

Specs & performance 

The G9 Power offers 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage, which can be expanded to 512GB with a microSD card.  

In our benchmark scores, the G9 Power performed on par with the G9 Play for the most part, though it did marginally outdo the Play with regards to overall CPU performance in the Geekbench 5 CPU test. Their similar scores aren’t entirely surprising given the G9 Power shares most specs with the G9 Play, including the Snapdragon 662 chip. 

Like the Play, the Power also drastically outdid the Xiaomi Redmi 9 in all gaming tests. The Redmi 9 is cheaper though at £139 and bagged the eighth spot in our round-up of the best budget phones. But if you want to compare like for like in terms of pricing, the real competition to the G9 Power is the Realme 7 (the non-5G variant) – which is also priced at a competitive £179.99.

The Realme 7 outdid the G9 Power in nearly all tests, as well as in the overall CPU score. It’s fast and offers a 90Hz Full HD (2400×1080) display, which makes it great for gaming. So if it’s gaming you’re after, the Realme 7 may be a better option for you – you’ll just need to contend with its Realme UI.

Battery life – Oh my days!

The biggest benefit of the G9 Power is its 6000mAh battery. Motorola isn’t lying when it says you’ll get 60 hours of phone use per charge. In fact, conservative phone users can easily stretch the battery to four or five days.

In our battery test, which runs the phone through a series of battery-draining activities without stopping, the G9 Power lasted 16 hours and 18 minutes – which is just slightly longer than the G9 Play’s 16 hours and 4 minutes. Yes, it’s not 60 hours, but you’re very unlikely to use the phone continuously, at full power, without putting it down.

Even though the battery drained to 15% after the 16-hour test, it took an additional day for it drop to 6% with mild use, and without help from a battery saving mode.

The phone comes with a 20W fast charger too. In 30 minutes, you can revive 27% of the battery life from zero, which may not seem like much, but it’s also 27% of a 6000mAh battery, which translates to at least four hours of screen-on time.

Like the G9 Play – which offers 5000mAh of juice – the G9 Power is equally suited to battery-sinking tasks, like watching videos, scrolling through social media and casual gaming, but you have the privilege of a larger, more vivacious display.

Price and Availability 

The Moto G9 Power is available in Sage Green or Electric Violet for £179.99 from Motorola or parent brand Lenovo, as well as from Carphone Warehouse, John Lewis, Amazon, and Argos.

In the US, it costs US$299.99 and is available from Amazon.


If you’re choosing between the G9 Play and the Power, the Power undoubtedly wins.

In many cases, reviewing the Power gave a sense of déjà vu relative to the £159.99 G9 Play, because it is essentially the same phone but with a bigger battery and nicer screen for £20 more. This makes the G9 Power easy to recommend for streaming shows, casual gaming and browsing social media.

While the cameras could be better, you do gain a 64Mp sensor – up from Play’s 48Mp. Just be warned: you’re better off taking pictures during the day and with plenty of light. Pass on this phone if you want to wow your friends on Instagram.

It’s hard to deny the G9 Power offers incredible value for money. Your challenge as the phone buyer will be choosing between the G9 Power and similarly priced Chinese phones that match in performance – in which case, it’s worth thinking about what you prioritise most in a handset: is it the design, user experience, battery, display? You can’t go wrong whichever way you go.

I’d recommend the Power to anyone looking for a budget handset that delivers all the essentials, but with flair.

Intel Core Vs. Amd Ryzen: Which Offers The Best Bang For Buck

If you’re asking yourself whether AMD’s Ryzen or Intel’s Core offers the best bang for the buck right now, we understand. AMD’s freshly unveiled 16-core Ryzen 9 3950X has nerds from Topeka to Kuala Lumpur wanting to know if the CPU landscape has again been redrawn with AMD’s new CPUs.

We looked at three metrics which we know generally drive CPU performance: core and thread count (or how many CPU cores you have), and good old megahertz. You might have been told years ago that megahertz doesn’t matter anymore, but they were lying, because it does. The other pillar to determine value is, of course, how much it costs.


How much value does AMD’s new Ryzen 3000-series offer? This much.

AMD or Intel: Best multi-threaded value

To assess multi-threaded value, we took AMD’s existing lineup of Ryzen mainstream chips (plus a couple of Threadrippers for reference) and compared them to AMD’s new Ryzen chips, along with Intel’s current stable of CPUs.

For pricing we used the MSRP for the new Ryzen 3000 CPUs. We used street pricing on either chúng tôi or chúng tôi to set our prices for the Ryzen 2000, Threadripper, and Core and Xeon CPUs.

Amazingly, if you put a line horizontally across our Cost per Thread chart and told AMD CPUs to step to the value side and told the Intel CPUs to step to not-as-good-a-value side, you’d get the results below.


AMD continues to dominate in the cost-per-thread contest.

As we move up higher in AMD’s new Ryzen 3000 lineup, we can see a large bump in price per core, with the 6-core Ryzen 5 3600X, 8-core Ryzen 7 3700X, and 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X all costing about $21 per thread. Interestingly, the new 16-core Ryzen 9 2950X costs only $23 per thread, which is slightly better than the chip with the worst multi-core value of the family: the 8-core Ryzen 9 3800X, at $25 per thread. The Ryzen 9 3800X’s value per thread is basically the same as that of a 32-core Threadripper 2990WX.

Much of Intel’s lack of value comes from the fact that the company doesn’t offer Hyper-Threading on many of its mid-range 6-core chips. Without performance-boosting Hyper-Threading, the 6-core Core i7-9700K cost is pushed up to a painful price of $51 per thread. That’s more than Intel charges per thread for a $1,200 Core i9-9920X CPU. Ouch.

Obviously the big question is whether you need so many cores. If you edit video, do many, many CPU-intensive things at once, or render 3D, then yes, it’s worth it. If you don’t, however, the “value” you’re getting for these AMD CPUs might not be quite there. Of course, the smart thing to do instead of paying for a $500 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X would be to opt for a lower-cost Ryzen chip.

The basic upshot is that AMD continues run the entire field in multi-core value over Intel chips. And if you need that multi-core performance, that means AMD is going to offer you way more bang for the buck over Intel right now.

AMD vs. Intel: Best megahertz bang for the buck

As we said, paying for a big, hairy multi-core chip is pointless unless you actually use that chip to its fullest extent.

For most people who play games, run some browser windows, or engage in mainstream productivity tasks, a CPU’s clock speed may be more valuable in determining CPU value and performance. The sticky part with that equation is that each CPU’s clock will vary determined on load and cooling. Unlike our previous multi-threaded-per-buck chart, which we have fairly high confidence will come close to reality for heavily-threaded tasks, this is a lot looser.

Still, it’s interesting to see which of the CPUs gives you the best bang for the megahertz. To do that, we use each CPU’s stated Turbo Boost or Boost clock speed. We opted not to include AMD’s Precision Boost score, because that’s highly dependent on conditions, and instead stuck with the company’s stated top boost clock.


Does AMD or Intel offer more value per clock? To find out, we calculated the street price vs. the boost clock of the CPUs to find out which chip gives you the best dollar per boast megahertz.

We’d like to point out that if you look at the third-best value per clock, it highlights an overall weakness with trying to judge the chips on megahertz alone. The Ryzen 5 3600 is a low-wattage part, but it’s actually rated to hit the same 4.2GHz as the higher-wattage Ryzen 5 2600X. With just a $20 difference to get AMD’s leading-edge 7nm process vs. the Ryzen 5 2600X, we’d probably go with the newer Ryzen 5 3600 instead.

AMD takes the prize for megahertz value as well, but remember that’s based on the older CPUs. Once you get to AMD’s brand-new Ryzen 3000 chips, the megahertz/buck race is closer than we expected. Frankly, we’d say it’s a tie if you’re looking only at Core vs. Ryzen 3000.

The Best Camera Apps For The Iphone X

One of the best features on the iPhone X is the camera. It is the best iPhone camera to date, with exclusive features like the wider aperture and OIS on the tele lens. We scourged the App Store to find the best apps for shooting photos and videos that have been updated for the iPhone X, and this is what we found.

There are many great apps in the App Store for manually shooting, but only a few have been updated to support the iPhone X’s display, the HEIF supported in iOS 11, and depth features of the amazing dual-camera setup.

We will be looking at apps to shoot video, photos, and even editing in our roundup. To get the best idea and see them for yourself, check out our hands-on video.

FiLMiC Pro

FiLMiC Pro is the only app on our list that focuses purely on videography. It has been around for quite a while, and is generally regarded as the best app, hands down, for shooting professional video on your iPhone.

There is everything you would need from a video shooting app. A few of my favorite features include the ability to set stop points and animate the zoom while shooting, the custom white balance configurator, and the overlaid live analytics.

Best for: Shooting professional quality video on your iPhone


Darkroom got a bunch of new features in its 3.2 update. It has Metal 2 graphics support, support for wide color gamut, and a new UI for the iPhone X.

Darkroom is best for editing your photos, with minute levels of detail. You can easily crop your photos, apply filters, adjust via sliders, user curves, and more.

They’ve updated the app to utilize all of that beautiful display, even adding buttons to the “ears” on either side of the notch.

Best for: Editing and adjusting your photos


Halide is another fo my favorite apps that got updated for the iPhone X. It has a whole new UI that really focuses on having everything usable with one hand.

There are ton of manual shooting options, such as manual focus, RAW support, depth support, exposure adjustment, and more.

Just like FiLMiC Pro highlights the focus area, Halide will put a live layover on the screen to help you decipher which parts of your photo are sharp. It is a really handy feature when shooting, especially when you are using a manual focus.

Best for: Manually shooting photos


If you are looking for exceptionally high resolution images, low light shots, or HDR photos, Hydra is a smart choice.

HDR photos are created by taking a series of photos, at different exposures, then combining them into one shot that has a properly exposed background, and foreground. Hydra does just that. It will shoot a series of photos, and combine them into a great looking HDR photo, then gives you three options of B/W, medium effect, or strong effect.

Additionally, you can shoot lo-light photos, zoom, and hi-res. The hi-res photos are especially cool. It takes between 50-60 photos, then combines them into a photo that can be up to 32mp. Significantly more than the default resolution of your iPhone’s images. When you zoom in, photos are still surprisingly sharp.

Best for: Shooting stunning HDR, low light, and high resolution photos


ProCamera is another manual photo app that has an easy-to-use interface. Compared to Halide, it also has controls for shooting in video.

The interface is a bit simpler than Halide too, with only a couple controls visible while shooting, but still having the options available inside a menu. The main aspects, like independent focus, exposure controls, and exposure compensation, are easily accessed right away.

Best for: Shooting manual photos


Probably one of the coolest and unique apps out there is Focos. There are a number of really neat features available on this app, and they all utilize the dual camera setup of the iPhone X.

To start, you are able to snap a photo, then adjust which part is in focus after the fact. This is similar to those Lytro cameras that cost hundreds of dollars.

Aside from the post-shooting focus adjustments, you can also adjust the amount of blur and bokeh in your photo. For pro users, you can change the shape of the aperture’s diaphragm, so that the bokeh in the background have specific shapes.

What is exceptionally cool, is how you can apply different effects to different parts of the image. They take the image, create a 3D sliced model of it, and display it from the side.

You can adjust the amount that gets the back bokeh, and how much of the front. Then you can apply any number of different edits, filters, or effects.

My favorite effects are those reserved for the pro tier. Namely, snow, rain, sandstorm, and fog. They are shockingly good effects, and even use the depth of the image in the overlay.

Here is a moody portrait photo of my cat using the rain effect. Fog is also quite cool, and would look really stunning in some outdoor photos.

Best for: Adjusting focus and applying effects using the dual cameras

Wrap up

There are so many other great camera apps out there, and overtime, I’m sure more will be updated for the standout features of the iPhone X.

Here’s another clear case option (there are a lot of these for the iPhone 12 mini), but this one’s from Speck. It’s a company that has made a name for itself over the years by building some top-notch accessories. The Presidio case is no exception. It offers plenty of protection, while keeping a slim profile. And while the case has a clear design (except the Obsidian color options), it also offers a pop of color, too.

The Speck case features the company’s IMPACTIUM shock barrier design, which means it can survive a fall from up to 13 feet. The clear coating will resist discoloration over extended use periods, and it won’t yellow, either. And with Microban, the case will remain clean even with daily use.

Raised bezels will help protect the display and the rear cameras.

The Presidio case from Speck is available now for the iPhone 12 mini in Clear with Gold Glitter/Clear, Clear/Atmosphere Fade, Clear/Black, Clear/Clear, Clear/Clear Grip, Clear/Rosy Pink, Clear/Vintage Rose, Obsidian/Obsidian, Obsidian/Obsidian Grip.

The Mous case has a lot going for it. It’s thin, so it doesn’t add bulk. It’s designed to offer up superior drop protection. And it has its own magnetic features built right in. However, it’s worth noting that this is not a MagSafe accessory. So while it can work with a MagSafe wireless accessory, it won’t line up perfectly and it can’t wirelessly charge as quickly as a MagSafe-compatible case.

With that in mind, the Mous Limitless 3.0 case does offer up the company’s own magnetic charging technology called AutoAlignPlus. This will work with Mous’s other magnetic accessories, including a suction mount, a wireless charger, and a card wallet.

With Mous’s AiroShock technology, the case can survive plenty of falls. The case offers raised bezels to protect the display and the rear cameras. And, finally, the cases are made from high-end materials.

The Mous Limitless 3.0 case is available now from Amazon in Bamboo, Black Leather, Aramid Fibre, Speckled Black Leather, and Walnut.
