anyone getting the XR?

Hardware & Accessories

hi, has anyone pre-ordered, or is getting the XR? i have the 7 at the moment, but the XR just sounds huge! i am due an upgrade now here in the UK with EE as part of the annual upgrade program, but have gotten used to my 7, and it runs quite well under ios 12. so unsure what to do, but feel the XR, is the route i would take.

I am thinking about getting it. As far as I can tell, the only thing for me is that the XR does not have 3D touch, but as little as I use it anyway, that is certainly not a deal-breaker. The only question I have is will the audio on the XS and XSMax be better than that on the XR? If so, I may bite the bullet and get the XS.

I did pre-order an XR. I have some concerns about it: namely no fingerprint sensor and Home button, and the size. However the longest battery life of all iPhone models is good for me. As well as I need the Bluetooth 5.0 and (my iPhone 7 has Bluetooth 4.2) not a big deal to many users, but helpful for MFI hearing aids.
I did wait for the preliminary reviews out this week to check on performance, it would appear from the reviews that processor performance has been kept the same as the XS and XS Max.
So I suppose I have to make the change at some point since it seems no Home button and huge is the way of Apple for the foreseeable future. Hoping it doesn't make me to crazy.
