IPhone smartphones offer a lot, but at the same time are the most expensive phones on the market. In the guide I will try to present the advantages and disadvantages of iPhones, which in my opinion are worth buying in 2018.

In 2018, all flagship smartphones are expensive, but Apple products cost the most. When spending over 3 thousand zlotys per phone, you should be aware of the pros and cons of each of the iPhones that are available for sale. And this is what this guide will be about.

Cheap iPhone? You can buy one …

… but you need to know what the savings are. The cheapest way to get an iOS device in 2018 is to buy an iPhone SE . This one currently costs about 1,200 zlotys . At the same time, it is the best choice on the market for all fans of compact devices – the low-end equipped with a 4-inch screen currently you will not buy.

What was missing from it in relation to the more expensive models? When it comes to components, it's almost a twin model for the iPhone 6S. Róznice is an older fingerprint reader and a bad selfie camera, coming from the iPhone 6. If such disadvantages do not bother you, you can easily decide on it – plus the battery also stands out, at least compared to larger Apple smartphones. The next one is the iPhone 6, which at the time of writing this guide costs PLN 1499 . In my opinion, you can calmly give him peace , because for such money he offers very little – with a bad battery at the forefront. A definitely better choice will be the iPhone 6S , which I used myself for over a month – and its price is not much higher ( currently for PLN 1769 ). Smooth operation, a good camera and a very good screen are its main advantages. I will definitely count the battery as a defect – more demanding users will definitely have to use the charger during the day. https://www.gsmmaniak.pl/899894/iphone-6s-2018/ This problem is devoid of a model with a larger screen – iPhone 6S Plus, which in a variant of 32 GB of RAM you can buy for PLN 2299 . That's a lot of money, which in my opinion is not worth spending just for a battery. At this price, you can easily buy newer models, I will not mention the whole range of better ex-flagship with Android.

Is it worth to buy an iPhone 7 in 2018?

Along with the iPhone 7, we are already entering the segment above PLN 2,000. At the same time, it's smartphones that will satisfy the needs of more demanding users – progress compared to older models is more than noticeable. Let's start with a smaller iPhone 7. It offers a much more functional camera than its predecessors, the screen is much better, and for the first time appears waterproof and the haptic Home button. I thought that simulating the press would be just a frown, but it's really an interesting solution – it's almost impossible to distinguish it from a physical click. On the other hand, this model no longer offers a headphone connector, which can be disqualifying for many users. iPhone 7 currently costs just over 2,000 zlotys , which in Apple's case can easily be called an attractive offer.

For those who can not imagine using a screen less than 5 inches in diameter, the iPhone 7 Plus was created. In addition to all the features and improvements from the basic model, we find here for the first time in the history of Apple dual camera. This manages well even in 2018, offering one of the best portrait modes we find in smartphones. However, this has its price – currently from PLN 2799 . Worth it? In my opinion – the most.

iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are models for conservatives

iPhones with the eight in the name made their debut in 2017, and their premiere has been overshadowed by the iPhone X, which I will go to later in this guide. Is there any reason why someone would choose them instead of new, much more visually attractive models?

The most, and this is the price . The iPhone 8 is currently the strongest smartphone in the Apple range, which still has relatively small housing dimensions. Unfortunately, we will not find a double camera here, and thus we will not take advantage of the additional telephoto lens. In return, we get a great screen, wireless charging and the certainty of updating support for many years. Prices start at PLN 2770. However, if you can not imagine living with a smartphone without an advanced portrait mode, then you can bet on a larger iPhone 8 Plus. The double camera is even better than the one from the previous year and even now it will satisfy the needs of even more advanced amateur photographers . Traditionally better than in the "small" iPhone is a battery that can cope with one day of more intense work. However, all this has its price – in this case at least PLN 3299 .

iPhone Xr or iPhone X?

This question is definitely asking many people to buy an iPhone. It is, contrary to appearances, quite similar models and both have their advantages and disadvantages. In the case of last year's iPhone X on the side of the benefits, you should save a fantastic 5.8 inch OLED screen and a very good dual camera. It is also a little more expensive, because now you buy it from about 4,000 zlotys . Although it would seem that the iPhone Xr does not have a start to last year's model, in my opinion this is not entirely true. The biggest disappointment on the smartphone for 3729 PLN is still the display. It has a larger diagonal (6.1 inches), but it was made in IPS technology – although not for everyone it must be a defect, and the differences can only be seen when the two models are next to each other.

The resolution (HD +) is much more disappointing. Thicker frames are also around the screen. However, the iPhone Xr has quite a few advantages. The camera is single, but everybody needs an extra telephoto lens – and the quality is still great. It is also a more efficient model due to the presence of the new Apple A12 Bionic processor. For me, however, the biggest plus is working time away from the socket – a more modern layout and relatively low screen resolution are doing wonders – this is the best iPhone for those looking for an iOS device and a good battery. Which of them, so choose? My vote goes on the iPhone Xr – because of the longer update support and a better battery. Well, about PLN 300 is left in your pocket.

iPhone Xs and Xs Max for the most demanding

In this way, we have reached the last positions in this list. Both iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are complete smartphones with nothing missing. If money does not play a special role, no other iPhone will provide such a full iOS experience. Both cameras and screens are an absolute market leader. A smaller model costs a staggering PLN 4979 , and a larger one is an expense of PLN 5,500. Experience teaches that these prices will not drop too quickly.

If I had to find shortcomings, I found two . The first is a battery that is weaker than the much cheaper iPhone Xr. The second only applies to the model with a 6.5-inch screen. With such a large work surface, you are asked to add solutions related to the Apple Pen stylus. Even if it can not be hidden in the housing, it would bring the smartphone's capabilities even to the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Unused potential – well, maybe next year.
