iPhone XR is Apple's mid-size, lower priced iPhone for 2018, announced September 12, 2018. When it launches October 26, it'll come in 6 colors, all available in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB configurations.

Included are most of the features found in the XS models, like the A12 Bionic Processor, FaceID in the 7MP True Depth front camera, wireless charging, and Dual SIM technology, 1 physical SIM and 1 eSIM(currently not supported by Sprint).

Notable differences are the 6.1" Liquid Retina LCD display, single 12MP wide-angle lens, IP67 water-resistance instead of IP68, and only LTE-Advanced LTE, not Gigabit-class LTE.

However, it does include LTE band 71, so it's compatible with T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum.

Did anyone ever pick up an iPhone XR? I did get the 128GB in Blue last month, and I love it. I have it on a 2nd line.

My wife and kids have the XR. They love it. The battery life is longer than any of the X series phones. Even the XS MAX.

I have not put my XS Max and XR side by side to test out battery capacity. I should, but haven't had time. Too much going on with work lately.

    • A ton of them are from Extenet which afaik is Verizon's primary small cell partner here. I also see a bunch for Mobilitie which was Sprint's primary partner and Crown Castle which is T-Mobile's primary partner. I wonder if T-Mobile plans on contracting both for small cells going forward. If so, that's a lot of combined potential small cells, though still less than Extenet. By far the least are New Cingular which is likely AT&T. The wildcard is Transit Wireless who seems to be branching out of the subway system and is deploying quite a few new sites.
    • NYC DOITT database was updated about a month ago. Imported all the new oDAS node locations into my map. Haven't yet spotted anything with the new design in my travels through Williamsburg & Bushwick. Almost 1400 newly proposed nodes (since 3/5/21) is pretty incredible, though. Made my way up to Harlem and City College this past week. The site (eNB 55893) covering the north side of the campus STILL hasn't been upgraded from B2/B66 (dual APX16s). Pulled ~70Mb/s down on what is essentially an empty campus. Wish I knew what the deal is with that site. I almost wonder if it might be easier to work with the school and keep the Sprint site on top of the engineering building (Steinman Hall, across the street from their current site), instead.
    • Just saw this permit for a very rural area:  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/21110744CBP/Snohomish County It sure looks like a T-Mobile site number (SE01794A) and mentions "ADD 2 ABIL FOR N1900 N2100" First time I have seen a permit mention n1900 or n2100 (would this be n2/n25 and n66?). In fact, I searched all of the major locals on that site and not a single other permit mentions n1900 or n2100 (and none mention n2 or n66).

    • That's a good point. Everything costs money and Sprint just didn't have enough to spend on its network to be truly competitive vs the other carriers. Sprint's heavy debt load and the insufficient support it received from SoftBank really prevented Sprint from getting ahead of the curve enough to get breathing room.... and for these improvements to be substantial enough, consistent enough and timely enough across its network to have a meaningful impact on customer gains or retention, which is ultimately the measure of market competitiveness.
