What will the iPhone KSR convince the customer to be right for him?
Speed and smooth operation
September applauded apples as their new mobile chip Bionic A12, which was developed specifically to launch this year's iPhone, one of the fastest, if not the fastest smartphone processors ever, was not unwarranted.
iPhone KSR, in which, like the more expensive Kss and Kss Mak candidates, the Bionic A12 processor literally flies. In practice, there is virtually no application closure, camera and settings, the transition between ViFi and LTE connections occurs in seconds, and video storage even at the best quality (4K at 60 frames per second) is currently in progress and the camera is ready to resume recording.
Part of the credit for speed is definitely owned by the highly optimized iOS 12 operating system, which is as smooth as the iPhone KSR, at least for now, also on older devices.
We are confident of this comparison of iPhona KSR with borrowed money iPhon 7 Plus from 2016.
Although it has only one lens, the camera is outstanding in almost all aspects.
To do this, we already knew after reading the first tests of the iPhon Ks and praising his camera, because the iPhone KSR, with the exception of an additional lens designed for optical zoom, is virtually the same as the camera.
Sharpening the subject and taking pictures is extremely fast, showing the way, except for one of the shortcomings, which we will touch a little later, is very good.
Still, it's not as good as recording night workers in the Huawei P20 Pro competitors, but it's excellent:
Under the line, the overall quality of the photos is great, and this is partially provided by the iPhone, using the system function that Apple cites Smart HDR. This ensures that certain colors (for example, blue sky) are not too exposed and that the foreground motifs are always illuminated and that the shadows are realistic.
Smart HDR works by telling iPhones that three photos with different color parameters after pressing the shutter button, and then blending them into one.

The iPhone KSR also offers everything the user needs and what he can actually get on the mobile phone market. It can be recorded in resolution 4K with up to 60 frames per second, while 1080p can record slow recordings. There are no new video capabilities in the field of video recording Huavei Mate 20 Pro, which will be one of the biggest competitors in the price of iPhona KSR.
Eleven big "NEs" shots with a smartphone
The "ordinary" LCD screen is better than expected.
One of the main differences between iPhone KSR and iPhone Kss and Kss Mak is the screen. The more expensive models collect images using technology OLED, while the iPhone KSR in the meantime has a classic screen LCD. At the same time, the resolution, and therefore the sharpness of the image on iPhones Kss and Kss Mak is higher than the iPhone KSR.
It's true that the iPhones Kss and Kss Mak screens can display better colors and better contrasts and are brighter than the screen on the iPhone KSR, but the difference is not so great that a user who is irritated when buying one or the other can measure the card on scales.
Apple almost certainly built one of the best LCD screens in the iPhone KSR that is currently available. If we place it on the side of the OLED screen, in our case it is Samsung Galaki S8, and at the same time we set the maximum brightness and open the same application, the average user will be very difficult to notice the difference.
Who could even think that the image on the iPhone KSR looks better? That would be worth it Real tone, which adjusts the color temperature on the screen according to the availability of ambient light. When darker in the room, the image on the screen of the iPhone KSR will be "warmer".
What is good to know before you go to sleep today
A very decent battery life
The iPhone KSR first filled up to 100 percent for the first time on Friday, October 26, evening, and then we re-connected it with the remaining 18 percent of chargers until Monday, October 29 in the morning.
The time to use the smartphone was shared in the examples above between Safari Web Browser, Instagram Social Network, IouTube Apps, and Camera Use. In the next few days, when the iPhone picked up more "hard" and softened hands more often, the battery still appeared and enabled us about a day and a half which intensive use before the above graph again showed red.
The performance of the KSH battery of the Ksr battery (2,942 milliamp hours) is between the Kss and Kss Mak models, but it is longer than both. The great merit for this is most likely the above screen – less pixels and lower resolution also mean lower energy consumption.
Ten big mistakes you make with your smartphone
Good sound quality
Sound when playing music and watching movies or movies can be very loud, but at the same time still relatively pure, it means there is no distortion and well-pronounced low tones. In this area, the iPhone KSR deserves a clean five because it is better than most contemporaries.
Faster offer than for more expensive contemporaries
This item is purely cosmetic and does not in any way affect our final opinion on the usability of a smartphone, but for some clients it is important to have more options when choosing an external iPhone. iPhone Kss and Kss Mak give them three, and the iPhone KSR is six.
Price (first time)
When it comes to iPhone devices, the price is particularly controversial in the recent times. iPhone KSR is the cheapest member of the family of new iPhones, but with 256 GB of data storage, it costs only 40 euros less than the equivalent performance iPhone 7 Plus, 2016, the best and most expensive iPhone.
Compared with more expensive brothers, i.e. IPhon Kss i IPhone Kss Mak, who broke Apple's pricelist this year, IPhone KSR is pretty good in the meantime. In Telekom Slovenije, the input model, or version with 64 gigabytes of storage space, is sold in a non-binding manner 899 euros. The initial iPhone Kss and iPhone Kss Mak models are more expensive for 300 and more than 400 euros.
Such differences in Apple's price with the Kss and Kss Mak models simply can not be justified. Smartphones are not only an average but also a demanding user who wants a very powerful and versatile smartphone that is similar to a customer who wants to have a new iPhone, but also looks at the price, instead of KSR, decided Kss or Kss Mak.

What are the deficiencies that make up the buyer of the iPhone KSR maybe twice thought before opening a wallet?
Price (other). The "real" minimum price is actually $ 50 more.
Despite the fact that iPhone KSR is the cheapest iPhone of the year, its entry model is still more expensive than most of the premium smartphones of other manufacturers offering similar performance, such as Huawei P20 Pro in Samsung Galaxy S9 +. A 256-gigabyte storage version is more expensive than the latest Huavei Mate 20 Pro and Samsung's monsters Galaki Note 9.
Excellent superphone purchase, which will be available for Slovenes
It should also be noted that for most users who are attracted to the iPhone KSR, they buy 128 models, and not 64-gigabyte of storage space. Anyone who shoots a 4K video and takes a lot of pictures, will quickly pop up 64 gigabytes, but there is no room for expanding the memory card space. 128-gigabyte iPhone KSR for free sale costs 949 euros.
Anyone who wants to quickly recharge the battery will have to pay more, otherwise it will start.
During our test, the iPhone charges about 20 to 100 percent of charging for about three hours, as it does not allow quick charge of the battery from the "box". It's almost three times longer than the Huawei P20, for example.
Anyone who wants to charge quickly will have to buy the appropriate adapter and a special cable to charge and convert signals from the iPhon Lightning connector to USB-C. The official online store app adds up to $ 70, which is $ 61. The 128-gigabyte iPhon KSR has just climbed to thousands.
The difference in the quality of production that the user of the long-time iPhone and the owner of the iPhone Kss Mak immediately noticed.
iPhone Kss and iPhone Kss Mak are made of stainless steel and iPhone KSR comes from aluminum. The sensation immediately commented on the student as "less luxurious than my Mac" while holding the device.
Although the iPhone KSR is far from poor or poor quality material, it's really less premium and lighter than brothers and even Ks, although it's bigger and heavier than it. But again, it's just a cosmetic feature that does not in any way affect what can be done with the phone.
Two things, but most probably just upset by the biggest iPhone supporters.
– 3D touch function, which reveals a multi-option menu on iPhones Kss and Kss Mak, with a slight push of icons. IPhone KSR solves it in a different and limited way: Gentle pressure allows you to use some shortcuts, such as turning on locking the lock screen. Anyone who did not have an Apple phone and did not use the 3D Touch function are most likely to miss out.
– Portrait shooting mode The iPhone KSR only recognizes people, but not animals, objects, trees, food, and so on. Because of this, the portrait mode photo with the iPhone KSR is a bit limited, because the best effect of the blurred background can be achieved only when people are photographed.
It's a bit better than the iPhone X
