A time zone converting website is a useful tool for confirming accurate pre-order times.

Unfortunately, this will always be known as the poor man's iPhone no matter how good it really is.
That says a lot about the person who judges others that way. I don't see anything wrong with XR, and it's far from being a "poor man's" anything at $800 price point!

Apple marketing at it's finest, making people think $800 is cheap for poor men. ;)

Yep. Inferior in every way.
The LCD screen is actually better if your planning to keep it a few years because the OLED screens usually show some burn in after a year or two.
