    So TLDR- or TLDW? Anyway, summary:
    The current best value iPhones (imo) are the iPhone 11, iPhone 8/8 Plus, and the iPhone SE.
    Do you agree with me? No? Well, that's fine I guess. Kind of hurts but whatever

      I agree with your pick. But the iphone xr is also a good value at 500 used and around 600 new

      Waldo Guzmán Well, maybe but iPhone 11 will be the better buy in the long term unless you really hate light pastel colors and only need 1 camera.

      91Tech I really want an iOS 14 but I will bet iOS 13 will be the last iOS update for 6S and SE.

    If you are not one that need latest and greatest, go for a Xs Max if you can find one for a good price.
    My Xs Max is the same exp for few spec bumps and Camera IS better on 11..BUT..for standard folks..they will not notice it so much and XS has like most know a solid camera for everyday photos..
    Next year tho..i guess/Hope apple make some big...design AND spec wise ..wait for that one. :)

          Dropped my note 10+ a couple of days ago. Bought an 7 plus 32GB for $200. Im hella surprised how good the 7 plus still is! By far the best phone u could get for around $200. Everything is super smooth and battery life is still very good for an iPhone

                            GOODFATHER -0s yes it is. You will have at least 2 more years of support on it and it will be much better to upgrade in 2020 or 2021 because the phones will be much better

                                  Sticking with my iPhone XS 256- Nothing major for me to upgrade. My phone still looks new. Times to hard for a new phone every year

                                      iPhone 7 or 7 Plus and the iPhone 8 or 8 Plus will give you the bang for the bucks. Hands down. XR is a great buy but it minuses the finger ID button which could factor into the buyer's decision to pass on the XR. Just my take on it.

                                          Hi, I am confused about which iPhone should I buy according to the price. Currently, the price of iPhone XR 128GB is $649 meanwhile the price of iPhone 11 128GB is $749. But, the thing is that I have a very limited budget. So, the actual question is that "Should I compromise with the storage capacity of an iPhone in order to buy the latest iPhone 11 64GB instead of iPhone XR 128GB?” because the price difference margin between 128GB iPhone XR and 64GB iPhone XR is much lesser than the price difference between 128GB iPhone XR and 128GB iPhone 11. I would need to pay $100 more in order to buy iPhone 11 128GB and if I buy the iPhone 11 64GB, I would need to pay $50 more to buy the iPhone 11 64GB. Also, my second question is that is it right that iPhone with 64GB is too less storage for a person who would use the iPhone for around 4 - 5 years?

                                            Get the 7 Plus or the 8 Plus and you will get at least another 4 years of support from Apple for those phones.

                                                  I’m getting a red 128GB iPhine XR tomorrow - why?
                                                  1) better battery than my 8+
                                                  2) FaceID (really like it lol)
                                                  3) don’t want to wait for the 11
                                                  4) don’t take many pictures
                                                  5) will end up upgrading in 2-3 years anyways so it’s perfect for me

                                                    I find my set up useful to me so I thought I’ll share it with you as it might help someone else too. My main phone is the iPhone XR product Red, AirPods first gen, iPhone SE (at work). So how this works is as follows. I have a cross body bag that I use every day when going to work. So I have my iPhone XR in use while commuting to work connected to my Apple Watch series 3 ( no need for a newer version in my case ) and my AirPods. When I get to work I put away my XR and turn on my iPhone SE connect it to my AirPods, and pocket the SE.
                                                    I find this setup simple powerful for my everyday stuff and it all just works seamlessly. I got my iPhone XR on an unlimited data monthly plan. I bought the iPhone SE mint condition for 65£ the Apple Watch S3 mint condition boxed £120 (gps) and the AirPods were 60£ from my neighbour as they were gifted to him and he didn’t want them. I spent 245£ in total to buy the Se, AirPods and watch and I pay 50£ a month for my XR which in my books is very cost effective due to the crazy rise in mobile phone prices.
                                                    If you can find it second hand at a bargain price get it. Don’t spend hard earned money that might come in handy in the future for something that could very easily break from a simple drop.

                                                    Let’s be real think about what you could really get with 1200£ that’s the mainstream price of an iPhone XS Max, iPhone 11 pro, Samsung note 10+ etc... personally I’d rather have more good quality equipment over having just 1 multi functional device.
                                                    Yes the galaxy Note 10+ is an awesome phone visually but practically it is a very fragile piece of tech. As is the iPhone XS Max being bigger which means 2 hand operations and jiggling it about to swipe back and forth. All these things make dropping these expensive devices much easier. And as much as people will say well put a case on the phone... that will just take away from the beauty and luxurious feel of the phone basically the reason you paid so much for it (luxurious feel and looks).
                                                    I hope this helps others as it helped me and you are welcome to ask anything you want I have tried more than 200 different phones and tablets etc as I work for a warehouse that stocks tech devices for big stores so we get to play with new gadgets every day lol.

                                                      Lmao I have an iPhone 6 and it sucks.
                                                      It's laggy and my phone dies at 15% (might just be because I have an old phone)
                                                      And I'm planning on buying the XR

                                                        i have an iphone 6 and it's honestly not a fast phone anymore. It's getting laggier and laggier week after week at this point.

                                                        Yeah and it’s for $599 which isn’t overpriced as all the other phones :p

                                                      right now I need to get a new phone and for sure my bet is going to be with the iphone 8
                                                      this is going to be the future iphone 5s which last a reallllyyy long time

                                                        the 8 plus is probably the worst deal right now only $50 more and you can get a much newer XR unless you really want touchID but cmon grow up.... the home button will be gone very soon

                                                        I’m getting a 8 for Christmas but if I can save up a bit more I might consider xr but most likely 8

                                                        I really want 11 but in Germany it's 100 more than 699 which makes it too much for me...

                                                          @D Payne it's also still 699 but supposed to be 599 but in Germany it's always more. And I really want the ultra wide angle
