What to consider when choosing an iPhone
Over the past 11 years, since the first iPhone was released in the US, smartphones have gone from devices that make calls and send messages to TV replacements, gaming machines, dedicated cameras and virtual credit cards.
Finding the best iPhone for your individual needs can be daunting, but there are a number of factors that you should consider when trying to decide which device to spend your money on:
So what is the best iPhone?
While you should always consider your own personal needs and situation before deciding which model is the best iPhone for you, we do spend a lot of time testing and reviewing all the flagship phones that launch in Australia.
iPhone 8 Plus
Powerful performance, familiar design
While the iPhone X took most of the headlines at Apple's last iPhone launch, the iPhone 8 Plus delivers similar performance in almost every way, at a reduced price and without the bugs posed by the first generation of FaceID.
What's the best iPhone for photos?
Zoomed optical image stabilisation
Apple added image stabilisation to the telephoto lens of the iPhone X, giving it a slight, yet noteworthy advantage over the 8 Plus.
What's the best "cheap" iPhone?
Compact form factor
It's the cheapest iPhone by a fair margin, though it is starting to show its age.
