If youre looking for a flagship phone but dont want to pay a flagship price, the iPhone XR and Galaxy S10E are two of your best options from Apple and Samsung. Having launched in October 2018, the iPhone XR is the most recent and least expensive iPhone you can get, compared to the $1,000 iPhone XS and $1,100 iPhone XS Max.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy S10E came out this year, and is one of five Galaxy phones Samsung unveiled in February. Compared to the $900 Galaxy S10 and the pricier $1,980 Galaxy Fold (which doesnt yet have an official release date, thanks to screen issues), the Galaxy S10E is the cheapest one of the group.

The phones flat screen gives it an old-school look and is reminiscent of phones a few years ago, before Samsung curved the side edges of its Galaxy phones. Meanwhile, the iPhone XR has a 6.1-inch LCD display. Unlike past iPhones, the iPhone XR feels fairly sturdy, and we felt less afraid to drop it.
We dont recommend you do, but in case youre curious, this is what happened when we dropped a naked iPhone XR on the sidewalk. Also, when both phones are on maximum brightness, the iPhone is much more vibrant, especially off-axis, or when you view the phone from its sides. However, the Galaxy S10Es OLED screen means blacks are much darker and inkier.
