Apple’s ‘Low-Cost’ Lineup: iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 vs. iPhone 7

With the introduction of three new iPhones, Apple now has a long and somewhat complicated lineup of iPhones. The company is now selling 5 different models, 3 of which are aiming towards the lower end of the market, with iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max catering for the high-end.

If you have a low to medium budget and are thinking of buying a new iPhone, then you get plenty of buying options ranging from the brand new iPhone XR as well as iPhone 8 and iPhone 7. All of these devices are decent considering they all run iOS 12 without any troubles, have great processors and feature great cameras. However there are plenty of things that set them apart, perhaps most important of which is iPhone XR has 2019 specs, a brand new 6.1-inch Liquid Retina edge-to-edge display, Face ID and a modern design. Despite this there’s a hefty $300 difference between the price of iPhone XR and iPhone 7 that plays a vital role in buying decision of those who are on a budget.

In this spec comparison we have staked all three ‘low-cost’ iPhone models that you can buy right now. All of these devices are available for purchase from Apple Store, meaning they are current and will be receiving software updates for a foreseeable future.

As you can see in this specification comparison, there’s isn’t a huge difference between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8. Both devices have same cameras, same display, feature home button, Touch ID, battery etc. However the difference between iPhone 8 and iPhone XR is significant due to the fact that it has a brand new iPhone X inspired design, a 6.1-inch display, A12 Bionic chip and more.
