best iphone model
Currently Apple’s 2019 collection of iPhones takes the top few spots of this list, but this’ll certainly change soon.best iphone model 2019 – 2020
We’ve got our hands on the new iPhones to test them out briefly, but we’re not going to add them to our best iPhone list until we’ve used them for a while. This lets us decide for sure where the smartphones belong in the list.
When our full in-depth reviews go live, this list will see some shake-ups though, so expect that in the near future. But the entire slate of top iPhones will benefit from the new iOS 13 update, which is live, adding Dark Mode and other quality-of-life upgrades.best iphone model 2019 – 2020
The new iPhone range also saw a shake-up in Apple’s official iPhone line-up, and now it’s got a spectrum of handsets covering all price points – as well as a mounting graveyard of discontinued handsets. You can still pick up the ‘discontinued’ iPhones at various retailers and carriers, but the ‘official’ ones will be easy to come by.best iphone model 2019 – 2020

The best iPhones aren’t necessarily the newest, but Apple consistently provides meaty hardware and software upgrades when it introduces brand-new iPhones, so previously we’ve found newer means better.
Naming a best iPhone isn’t as simple as looking at plain specifications, because value and usability aren’t defined so easily – and even those metrics get changed since the best iPhone deals can sway the value of each device.
As such, we’ve taken the time to use each iPhone extensively in order to compare all the features and functions that new and older iPhones provide. We’ve snapped with their cameras, played many games, and weighed the value you get for the price.best iphone model 2019
So without further ado, here is our list of the best iPhones on the market right now, bearing in mind that the clock is ticking before this list gets completely overhauled.
1. iPhone 11 best iphone model 2019
The best Apple iPhone bang for your buck
Weight: 194g | Dimensions: 150.9 x 75.7 x 8.3mm | OS: iOS 13 | Screen size: 6.1-inch | Resolution: 828 x 1792 | CPU: A13 Bionic | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64/128/256GB | Battery: Unknown | Rear camera: 12MP+12MP | Front camera: 12MP
The iPhone 11 isn’t the highest-spec Apple phone, but it supersedes the iPhone XR ‘budget flagship’ in better ways to become the standout phone of its generation in terms of sheer value.best iphone model 2019
True, it misses out on a telephoto lens, but like we found with the Samsung Galaxy S10e, a coupling of main and ultrawide lenses serve most photo needs. While it doesn’t get an OLED display, its LCD screen at least allows the phone to keep its best-in-generation battery life crown. And it even gets a bit more RAM – up to 4GB from its predecessor’s 3GB.
Add in iOS 13 and all the new tweaks coming in the iPhone 11 series and this phone is a lean, mean, photo-taking machine – and all for $699, the cheapest an iPhone has debuted since the iPhone 8.
Big phone, best phone, top price
Weight: 226g | Dimensions: 158 x 77.8 x 8.1mm | OS: iOS 13 | Screen size: 6.5-inch | Resolution: 1242 x 2688 | CPU: A13 Bionic | RAM: 4GB | Storage: 64/256/512GB | Battery: Unknown | Rear camera: 12MP+12MP+12MP | Front camera: 12MP
The iPhone 11 Pro Max is not only a confusing shift in naming convention – it’s the biggest, fastest, baddest iPhone out there. It’s also the most expensive at $1,099 starting price, which only goes up if you expand storage.
Not much has changed from the iPhone XS Max, aside from the upgraded camera suite – but then again, adding an ultrawide lens is a big upgrade. The photo software has been upgraded, too, and switching between zoom levels is far smoother here than in other phones.best iphone model 2019
The battery level has been improved a staggering 4 hours over the iPhone XS Max, according to Apple. And if you can get beyond the truly weird-looking triple-lens rear camera block, this is truly the most powerful iPhone out there.
3. iPhone 8 best iphone model 2019
The newest 4.7-inch iPhone is a phone lots of people still want
Weight: 148g | Dimensions: 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3mm | OS: iOS 11 | Screen size: 4.7-inch | Resolution: 750 x 1334 | CPU: A11 Bionic | RAM: 2GB | Storage: 64/256GB | Battery: 1,821mAh | Rear camera: 12MP | Front camera: 7MP
This is actually the best-selling iPhone from Apple, and for several good reasons. First, we get it, you refuse to budge from the 4.7-inch iPhone screen size and, frankly, we don’t blame you. Every time we go back to this iPhone with ‘normal’ dimensions, we feel like we just went on a smartphone vacation. Second, its price is way more reasonable for a lot a folks than the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus.best iphone model 2019
Just because the size is the same as iPhones of old, doesn’t mean the technology behind it is, though. The iPhone 8 features the same A11 Bionic chipset as the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X, and it too debuted wireless charging and fast charging on an Apple smartphone.
The camera is still fantastic, even if it doesn’t have the dual-lens capabilities that are exclusive to the X and Plus, and you’ll dig iOS 11 at this size more so than the even smaller iPhone SE.

4. iPhone XS & iPhone XS Max
Apple’s latest phones, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are currently at the top of the company’s phone lineup. Unlike previous versions of the iPhone that have come in two sizes, the XS and XS Max are virtually the same phone just with different displays.best iphone model 2019
Both sport sharp, colourful Dolby Vision-capable OLED Super Retina screens plus the powerful A12 Bionic chipset and 4GB RAM powering everything on the inside. There’s also a TrueDepth sensor for both fast Face ID unlocking and Animoji. In terms of camera, there’s a superb dual 12-megapixel camera with dual OIS on the back.
The iPhone XS is for those who want the best specs with the same form factor as the iPhone X, while the larger iPhone XS Max swaps out a 5.8-inch display for a huge 6.5-inch panel that’s ideal for enjoying media and gaming on the go.best iphone model 2019
Overall this is our top recommendation if you are looking for performance and features, and care less about the cost.
5. iPhone XR best iphone model 2019
Apple made us wait just a little bit longer for the iPhone XR after launching the XS and XS Max. The ‘affordable’ choice (when placed alongside its 2018 brethren), the XR impresses by offering most of that iPhone XS experience for a lot less money.
It uses the same potent Apple A12 Bionic processor, runs the same version of iOS and sports the same primary 12-megapixel OIS-backed camera. The differences are elsewhere: its 6.1-inch Liquid Retina LCD isn’t quite as arresting as the HDR-capable OLEDs of the XS line but it’s no slouch either. The size also means it reaches a pleasing middle-ground between the other two iPhones that launched this year.
The aluminium-framed, glass-backed design supports wireless charging, IP67-certified dust and water resistance and it comes in a host of colours: black, white, blue, coral, yellow and Product:RED (aka, red).
The extended display means Touch ID has gone completely and as the screen’s notch implies, Face ID is now the soup du jour, offering secure facial recognition for unlocking your device, authenticating transactions and when messing around with Animoji and the new Memoji features.
6. iPhone X best iphone model 2019
A few years ago, we’d have baulked at the idea of actually paying £1000 for a smartphone but in 2017/2018 the idea because more acceptable to premium buyers thanks to the arrival of beautiful handsets like the iPhone X.
The iPhone X was the most costly handset that Apple had ever released, at least until the iPhone XS Max came along a year later. The latter’s arrival also signalled Apple’s decision to stop selling the iPhone X directly but it’s still available for less than its steep initial asking price, provided you look elsewhere.best iphone model 2019

Featuring a gorgeous, near-bezel-less design and more top-end tech than you can shake a stick at, the iPhone X is still an excellent choice, although it’s been superseded – Apple doesn’t sell this phone directly anymore but it’s available from other retailers.
Key highlights include a great telephoto camera, impressive battery life and Face ID security that lets you unlock the phone using your face.
The iPhone 8 Plus isn’t as exciting as the iPhone XS or iPhone XR but it’s still a good pick if you want something familiar.
The A11 Bionic CPU makes this device one of the fastest phones out there, and its 12-megapixel camera takes more saturated and colourful shots than the previous Plus.
The glass rear allows for Qi wireless charging, although a pad doesn’t come in the box. Plus, the display benefits from Apple’s TrueTone tech – adjusting the colour temperature depending on the surrounding lighting.
8. iPhone 7 Plus
The iPhone 7 Plus may now be a few years old but it remains a decent phone, especially when you consider the discounted price. It was the first iPhone to have two camera sensors on the back, with the second acting as a telephoto lens. The main 12-megapixel sensor still takes better shots, because it has a wider f/1.7 aperture and optical image stabilisation. The secondary sensor works with the phone’s Portrait Mode to give a nice bokeh (background blur) effect around your subject.
The iPhone 7 Plus also benefits from an improved 1080p display (compared to the 6 Plus) that sits at 5.5-inches. This isn’t huge when compared to the competition but it still makes the 7 Plus a big phone.
The rest of the specs are similar to the smaller iPhone 7: the A10 Fusion CPU, 32GB of base storage and upgradable to iOS 12.

9. iPhone 11 Pro
The 11 Pro is exceptionally well specced, although the price tag will put it out of reach of many budgets.
You get a 5.8in, 458ppi, True Tone OLED screen with improved contrast and brightness from last year’s iPhone XS; Apple is branding this as Super Retina XDR. The A13 Bionic processor, meanwhile, is the fastest Apple has made (and supposedly the fastest CPU and GPU in any smartphone yet made by anyone). Battery life is up by four hours from the XS, for an estimated total of 18 hours of wireless video.
The real flagship feature, though, is the cameras. You get a triple lens on the back (telephoto, wide and ultrawide), a brighter flash, Night Mode and ‘next-gen’ smart HDR, which uses the power of the A13to achieve superior shots in difficult conditions.
Finally, the 11 Pro is well equipped to handle accidents. Apple claims it has the toughest glass in any smartphone, and it’s water-resistant to a depth of 4m, up from 2m on the XS.
Virtually identical to the 11 Pro, the even more expensive 11 Pro Max adds an even bigger screen (6.5in rather than 5.8in) and still more battery life (up to 20 hours of wireless video playback rather than 18). These upgrades are why it starts at £1,149/$1,099.
So you still get the superfast A13 Bionic processor, the toughened glass and improved water resistance, the triple-lens camera and other photographic upgrades. And even though the screen is a different size, it shares the 11 Pro’s improved brightness and contrast.
This is without doubt – and without any surprises – the best iPhone yet sold, and those who can afford its price tag, and need its power, will not be disappointed. But most of us will probably need to look elsewhere for a more budget-friendly option.

11. iPhone 8 Plus
Blessed with a tasty price cut to celebrate the 2019 launches, the iPhone 8 Plus is now the choice for those who are on a budget but would still like a reasonably large screen. Just bear in mind that for £50/$50 more you can get the iPhone XR, which is a year newer and has a 6.1in screen.
The 8 Plus also misses out on the newer models’ edge-to-edge screen designs, and Face ID (although it does get a Home button and Touch ID, which some people are not keen to leave behind).
What else do you get? A solid-performing A11 chip – naturally this is a lot slower than the A13 in the iPhone 11 handsets but it should still do the job if your needs are light – wireless charging and a 5.5in True Tone display for better colour management. All that for £579/$549.
