Best iPhone 2018
2018 is a tough year to choose a new iPhone because there is an excellent range of really good options on offer at the moment. There were three brilliant models released late last year – the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and the 8 Plus. But they could be pricey and the previous two ranges of iPhone 7s and 6s are still holding their own specs-wise and build quality. Because Apple is pushing the newer phones and not focusing on the older models it means that the 6s, and 7s can be picked up a lot cheaper than the newer ones. So that makes it easy then doesn’t it? Just get a cheaper old one. But then… Look at the specs on the latest iPhones. Apple has a way of making their latest tech look so desirable doesn’t it? So maybe it would be better to stump up a bit more cash and get the X? It is a tricky decision to make so we have put together a short guide to help you choose the best iPhone in 2018.
Apples flagship phone, the one they all want us to fall in love with and buy. It has the best specs of any iPhone today but a price tag which reflects this. If you are into big, fast, top range phones and money is no object to you then this is the clear choice for you. Full (almost) 5.8-inch screen, pixel perfect 1125 x 2436 resolution gives it the biggest, clearest screen ever from Apple. However, some people find the black indent at the top off putting and will probably be removed on the later models. Due to the full screen it is around the same size as a standard 8 but with a much larger screen. If you are not into big smart phones or that hefty price tag this is not the iPhone for you. If, however you have to have the biggest and best why don’t you own one already?
iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
The 8 and the 8 Plus are not going to dazzle and wow you and your friends but they are solid phones with some great features. One of these is the ability to charge without plugging in – wireless charging, a real innovation in a smartphone. The X uses face recognition to unlock the phone which some people are not crazy about and its security has had question marks raised. The 8’s don’t have this feature. They have stuck with finger print technology and many people prefer this method of unlocking. Screen size – the 8 has a 4.7-inch screen, while the 8 Plus has a larger 5.5 inch. They both have great resolutions and great cameras.
iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
Speaking of cameras the 7 was released with a vastly improved front and back camera and was one of best, if not the best smartphone, of 2016. It has held its age well with an excellent battery life, water resistance and that impressive camera. We are talking about 2-year-old tech here so you can pick them up a lot cheaper then Apples latest phones, but they are still surprisingly good. If budget is a constraint but you still want a good, solid, high performing iPhone then this could be the one for you. Screen sizes are the same as the 8’s options with a 4.7-inch screen on the 7, and 5.5 inch for the 7 Plus.
