All You Need to Know About 2nd hand iPhone XR

Whether you are looking for your next smartphone or looking for an affordable gift with great value for a loved one, the second hand iPhone XR at QwikFone is the best device that you can gift yourself or your loved ones with. Some comparisons even put that phone on top of the latest iPhone 11 in terms of the return value on your investment in the price of the iPhone XR. Buying a pre-owned iPhone XR handset can, of course, be the cause of some worries. However, we, at QwikFone, are aware of the worries and concerns of smartphone buyers and users. So, we have developed the perfect plan that allows you to buy an iPhone at its lowest prices without worrying about its quality of lifespan. We are proud of our relationship with our loyal customers and always happy to gain the trust of new customers and this is exactly the goal of this pre-owned iPhone XR deal.

Before detailing the terms and benefits of the QwikFone deal, let's take a look at the iPhone XR itself and see why it would be worth your money in the first place.

The iPhone XR Second Hand Review 

Many smartphone reviewers have come to the conclusion that although the iPhone XR is cheaper, it is better as a purchase option than other iPhones. However, this revelation raises more questions than it answers. For example, how did Apple manage to make this version of the iPhone cheaper? What is the user giving up in exchange for the price reduction? Would it be better to opt for a more expensive flagship instead?

To answer all of these questions, we need to go through the different aspects and features of the iPhone XR to know how well they actually perform aside from the specs list which shows numbers that usually don't reflect the actual performance of the phone.


The iPhone XR design is quite interesting as it joins both the characteristics of the traditional iPhone design that we all know and love and the look of the new iPhones that lost their home button in favour of the new and futuristic front screen appearance. As a budget control move, the iPhone XR is still keeping the aluminium frame around its edges which is preserving that look of when the whole body of the iPhone was made of aluminium. This look is now considered by some to be retro, so it is quite endearing to see a glimpse of it on the iPhone XR edges. The rest of the phone, however, has the newest iPhone’s look with the glass on the front and back, wireless charging, and the all-display front.

You don't need to worry, however, about carrying around an all-glass iPhone as both sides are protected with Gorilla Glass which is deemed by experts as the strongest glass in the mobile phone industry. Just keep in mind that no matter how strong it is, it is still glass; it's meant to survive accidental drops, but don't expect it to survive severe accidents like being dropped on the street from a long distance.

Screen & display

Coming to the more modern side of the iPhone XR, the screen is taking up almost the entire front of the phone if we overlook the notch at the top. At this point, we have to overlook this space as Apple iPhone engineers seem to insist on placing their most important iPhone features which have to face the front of the phone in a notch.

As for the display quality, once more, we're going back to the previous iPhone display with the IPS LCD screen rather than the OLED that comes with the more expensive flagships such as the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max of the same year. So, is it different? Of course, the OLED displays offer more sharpness and deeper black color. But, it is most definitely cannot be considered a bad thing or a "downside" to the iPhone XR as the user would still be enjoying the great display quality of Apple's Retina technology.


Another feature of the iPhone XR that caused controversy was the missing secondary lens on the back was seen as a major downgrade by many people. Despite the generalized opinion, an affordable iPhone such as the iPhone XR had to come with a few features downsized for the price to be realistic. The true measure as to how good or bad any feature would be is the performance. For cameras, the quality of the images that the iPhone takes should be the only judge of its performance. In other words, the question we should be asking is whether or not the iPhone XR has a good camera.

The short answer to this question is YES! The iPhone X camera is not only a good camera, it is a powerful camera when you compare it to its competitors at the same price range.

Processor & OS

Before getting into the details of the processor's performance of the iPhone XR, it is important to mention that while the iPhone XR was launched with iOS 12, it can now be used with iOS 13.3 and all it would take is a few minutes of upgrade time. This means that, in terms of the software and the iPhone XR interface, it will be identical to that of an iPhone 11. As for the processor, the iPhone XR has the A12 Bionic Hexa-core processor same as the two flagships of the same year from Apple, the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max.

Battery life

There is no question that one of the most common complaints Apple iPhones always generated was the fact that the batteries were always lacking the power to sustain the phone's performance for more than a day before it needs to be plugged into the charger.

When iPhone XR was first released, Apple announced that this phone had the best battery ever put in an iPhone. With a 2942 mAh, the iPhone XR has even a bigger battery than the iPhone XS!

The most asked questions about second hand iPhone XR  

How much is a used iPhone XR?

The used iPhone XR's price is between £305 and £430 depending on the internal memory space as the 256GB used iPhone XR naturally costs more than the 128GB used iPhone XR. While other iPhones may have different prices depending on the color variant that the device comes in, the iPhone XR has the same price for all of its beautiful colours within the same internal memory storage size group.

Should I get iPhone 8 or iPhone XR?

There are so many differences between the iPhone 8 and iPhone XR starting with the price. While you can get a second hand iPhone for less than £300, the second hand iPhone XR starts at £560 for a 128GB memory size. This difference in the prices stems from the fact that the iPhone XR has a lot of the features of the flagships that came after the iPhone 8.

So, with the iPhone XR, you get the Apple A12 Bionic chip, 3GB RAM, Face ID, and 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display which is not only a larger screen than that of an iPhone 8, but also a better screen type. In terms of design, the iPhone XR has cooler colors and the front is all-screen unlike the iPhone 8 which has bezels and the traditional home button of the classic iPhones.

Why is second hand iPhone XR for sale cheap?

When users see the price of the iPhone XR for sale it may seem to them that it is too cheap in a suspicious way. However, it is important to remember that the second hand iPhone XR from QwikFone is renewed and tested by mobile phone experts who have been in the market for 10 years. Thanks to the experience of our team members of mobile repair professionals and using renewed OEM parts in our repairs of the second hand iPhone XR we are able to lower the cost of the used iPhone XR.

Is the 2nd hand iPhone XR camera any good?

The 2nd hand iPhone XR is in pristine condition and it is tested by QwikFone's experts to ensure that the functionality of all of its different parts is like-new. This, of course, includes the camera which is tested to ensure that the lens has no flaws and the software has no issues. So, essentially, the camera of the 2nd hand iPhone XR is as good as the camera of the brand-new iPhone XR.

Should I get second hand iPhone XR or XS?

Technically, both of those iPhones have the same processor, the same A12 Bionic chip, run iOS 12 initially, and can be upgraded to iOS 13.4. However, the iPhone XS is a flagship with a second 12MP telephoto camera lens on the back and a Super Retina display. On the other hand, the second hand iPhone XR has a bigger battery and a larger screen size. So, other than the additional camera lens, the iPhone XR is a better option.

What is the value of a used iPhone XR?

The iPhone XR used can cost between £460 and £750 depending on which internal storage space you choose to buy. The value you would get in exchange for this price will depend on the condition of the iPhone and the benefits you will get as a part of the deal. So, QwikFone is offering the best value for a used iPhone XR in pristine condition, free new accessories, and 12-month warranty, and a money-back guarantee.

Is iPhone XR a flop?

Absolutely not. While some people would think that the iPhone XR was a flop when they compare it to the iPhone X and iPhone XS, for example, they found the iPhone XR specs to be less. However, when making such a comparison, you must keep in mind that the iPhone XR is not made to be a flagship as it is with the iPhone X, XS, and XS Max.

So, since it is the cheapest iPhone of all its brothers, Apple had to compromise on some of its specs to cut back on the cost and control the price.

With that in mind, the iPhone XR does provide a premium experience similar to its flagship brothers at an affordable price. So, the iPhone XR is a success on all fronts!

How many years will an iPhone XR pre-owned last?

At QwikFone, the iPhone XR pre-owned is pristine. So, you can expect it to look, perform, and last just like a brand-new iPhone XR would. As far as the software support go, Apple usually keeps updating the software of its iPhones and upgrading its security for as long as 5 years post the iPhone's release date.

So, you can expect your iPhone XR to run the latest version of the iOS with all the amazing features that Apple rolls out every year for years to come.

Should I buy a used XR or 11?

Of course, the iPhone 11 is the more recent edition among the two and it seems more attractive. However, when you consider the value that you're getting for your money, the iPhone XR seems to be the better option among the two iPhones. You'll save money at the iPhone XR refurbished price and get the same software interface and performance as it runs the latest iOS, iOS 13.6.1.

What is the price of second hand iPhone XR in the UK?

The standard iPhone XR 64GB used starts at £305. The price, of course, will change according to which internal storage space you want to get. The one thing that won't change is the QwikFone deal terms that guarantee a pristine condition, a 12-month warranty, and a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Does the 2nd hand XR need a screen protector?
