If we're to believe current reports from Apple's supply chain, the iPhone XR isn't meeting the company's expectations. Before and after its launch, the device was expected to provide Apple's iPhone shipments a much-needed boost and entice older users to upgrade. But, current whispers from the Cupertino tech giant's supply chain suggest that this isn't the case. Now, we've got some benchmarks for the 6.1" iPhone XR, and they're quite impressive. Take a look below for more details.
Apple iPhone XR Outperforms The iPhone XS Max In GeekBench Scores As The Former Also Displays Impressive Battery Performance Due To A LCD Panel
Before we get to the results, it's relevant to take note of a couple of specifications. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have higher screen resolutions than the iPhone XR does. They also have OLED displays.

Apple's diversified the iPhone lineup this year, and the iPhone XR is a good indicator of how the company has improved. For starters, as noted by Macworld, the iPhone XR has a near identical battery and screen surface area to the iPhone 7 Plus. However, the device lasts more than 1 hour and 45 minutes over the iPhone 7 Plus, which is a significant improvement.
Starting from performance, the iPhone XR consistently outperforms the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max in every benchmark thrown at it. The XR's lead is strongest in Antutu, in which the smartphone scores 335,174 points. It also edges out in front of the iPhone XS in CPU and GPU performance. The iPhone XR's scores in all variants of 3D Mark are higher than the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. It also breezes past the iPhone X in 3D Mark Ice Storm Unlimited.
In GeekBench 4's battery life tests, a larger battery and an LCD display aid the iPhone XR in achieving a high score. The iPhone XR lasts a cool 333 minutes during testing, with the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XS coming in second and third respectively. The test is a good indicator of how well the devices will perform in real life. Additionally, your real life battery results will be longer than the ones shown in the test.
