No way does an OLED screen and a slightly better camera system justify £250 more.
What is it, about the Xs, that justifies in your mind the extra £250 over the Xr?
anything else I’m missing?The extra ram has not yet been confirmed, has it? But even so it is likely to be a negligible hit to the performance.
IP68, definitely a plus, but I can't think of many scenarios where this will really make a difference. Dropping it in the pool, down the toilet, in a fishing lake etc and you're all good to go with either handset.
Optical Zoom, yes I can see why you'd want that if you use the phone in a semi-professional capacity. But for most people who just want to take holiday snaps pics of the kids, you'll not notice a difference.
**Update, there is a difference in the Ram, 3GB vs 4GB, but benchmarks seem to indicate a very small increase in performance overall, generally unnoticeable.
