What are the best iPhones?

Now that we have reviewed the four new iPhone 13 models, we can say that iPhone 13 Pro Max is the best iPhone you can buy — a nearly perfect phone thanks to its cameras, adaptive display and long battery life. Buy this phone for 1090$ (the same price Apple asked for last year’s champion, the iPhone 12 Pro Max) and you won’t be disappointed.

Want something cheaper? iPhone 13 costs $79,999 and is the best iPhone for most people. While it lacks the dynamically adjustable screen found on the iPhone 13 Pro models, its cameras are powerful enough on their own. Throw in an improved battery, a brighter display, and a powerful A15 chip, and Apple has another great choice in the iPhone 13 lineup. iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 mini has its own special attraction.

Apple has retained several models from last year’s iPhone 12 family. Now you can buy an iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 mini for less than their iPhone 13 counterparts.

Most Expensive Phone: iPhone 4 Diamond Rose

The iPhone 4 Diamond Rose is another creation by Liverpool jeweler Stuart Hughes. At one time, the smartphone was included in the Guinness Book of Records. Its price is $8 million. The well-known tycoon Tony Sage bought Diamond Rose, who asked to make two copies at once.

The luxury phone has a rose gold back panel. The smartphone is also equipped with:

  • 500 diamonds, the total weight of which is 100 carats;
  • 53 diamonds that are set on the Apple logo;
  • a platinum navigation button set with a 7.4-carat pink diamond.

Especially for the iPhone 4 Diamond Rose, a case was made, which was made of pink granite and nubuck. The total weight of the case in which the device is stored is about 7 kg.

Regarding the technical characteristics of the device, they are useless. The filling of the iPhone is at the level of the 4th generation of analogues. Against the backdrop of an exquisite and ultra-expensive finish, performance is not so important.

TOP 8 Best iPhone smartphones in 2021

price may vary

Screen size: 6.7″ OLED (2778 x 1284; 120Hz) CPU: A15 Bionic Cameras: 12MP primary (/1.5), 12MP ultra-wide (ƒ/1.8) 12MP telephoto (ƒ/2.8) with 3x optical zoom, LiDAR/12MP front (/2.2) RAM / Storage: unknown / 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB

pros

  • The best smartphone cameras
  • Superior Performance
  • Excellent battery life
  • Brighter display with dynamic refresh rate

Minuses

  • Not the fastest charging

Nothing beats the iPhone 13 Pro Max, the best iPhone Apple has to offer right now, and a nearly perfect device. This smartphone has added an adaptive display that can automatically scale the refresh rate from 10Hz to 120Hz depending on what task you are doing. This, combined with a larger battery and an efficient AT 15 Bionic processor, helps the iPhone 13 Pro Max last more than 12 hours — an outstanding time.

All of these features are impressive, but the truly remarkable thing about the iPhone 13 Pro Max is its cameras. The setup is the same as before with three rear lenses, but Apple has put larger sensors in it to let in more light, and the ultra-wide-angle shooter is especially good at bringing out color and detail in dark areas of shots. The telephoto lens is better too, with the iPhone 13 Pro Max now supporting 3x optical zoom.

A lot of the downsides to this phone will have to be pretty hard to find, and they mostly stem from the fact that we’d like Apple to add some form of Touch ID, for example. But the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s features are impressive and confirm Apple’s place as a leading smartphone maker.

Galaxy Z Fold3 is Samsung’s most expensive flagship

The third generation of foldable smartphones from the Korean manufacturer, like the previous two, has a record high price. If the attitude towards the first Galaxy Z Fold was ambiguous, then gradually the company managed to instill a love for these gadgets.

Galaxy Z Fold3 combines an unusual design and new technologies, which attracts many users, even taking into account their considerable cost of 1600$ for the 12/512 GB version. These unusual gadgets have not yet come into use, so they attract the views of others. Their main feature is two displays with a resolution of 2208×1768 pixels. Both have Dynamic AMOLED matrices and operate at frequencies up to 120 Hz.


The smartphone captures the views of others not only with its size, but also with the richness of the display. Source: forbes.com

Another feature of the Galaxy Z Fold3 is the powerful Snapdragon 888 processor. This is an 8-core chip with a record performance for 2021 of over 710,000 points in AnTuTu. This is more than enough for all games, including the most demanding ones.

The battery capacity is 4400 mAh. In the mode of watching a video or reading, the charge lasts for 16 hours, and demanding games drain the battery in 6 hours.

Advantages:

  • a large folding display that turns a smartphone into a tablet;
  • top processor Snapdragon 888;
  • significant amounts of RAM and internal memory (12/512 GB);
  • good autonomy, taking into account the diagonal of the screen.

Flaws:

  • thick body that takes some getting used to.

price may vary

Screen size: 6.1″ OLED (2532 x 1170) CPU: A15 Bionic Cameras: wide 12 MP (/1.6), ultra-wide 12 MP (ƒ/2.4) / 12 MP front (ƒ/2.2) RAM / Storage: unknown / 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB

pros

  • Bright screen
  • Great cameras
  • Best in class performance

Minuses

  • No 120Hz screen
  • Not the fastest charging

The best iPhone for most people would be the iPhone 13, which balances a more affordable price with some standout specs. Skipping the pricier Pro line won’t get you fast-refreshing displays, but there are enough great features here to make the iPhone 13 a worthy upgrade from any previous iPhone.

One of the best things about this new model is the storage. Apple is finally including 128GB in the base model, so now you don’t have to use other storage to fit everything on your phone. The A15 processor — the same one used in iPhone 13 Pro models — continues to set the pace for mobile processors, allowing iPhone 13 to outperform any Android device.

As with any iPhone 13 model, the real draw is the cameras. The iPhone 13 has two rear lenses, but they have larger sensors, which should improve low-light photography. What’s more, Apple includes a number of computational features, such as Cinematic Mode, to automatically switch focus when shooting video. This is an impressive array of features in a phone at an affordable price.

Goldvish Le Million

It would seem that push-button phones have long since retired and become part of the history of the formation of mobile technologies. But if there are unlimited means and opportunities, then cell phones can be made relevant in our time. Goldvish Le Million is worth $1.3 million. It is one of the most expensive cellular devices ever.

The main feature of a mobile device is its unique appearance. The case is made of 18 carat white gold. Such expensive phones are covered with diamonds. Goldvish Le Million is no exception: it is set with 120 carats of precious stones. The only place without diamonds is the screen.

Here are the specs of the phone:

  • number of SIM cards — 1;
  • weight — 198 g;
  • dimensions — 46x110x17 mm;
  • screen — color TFT, 220 × 176 pixels;
  • communication — GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900;
  • Internet — GPRS, EDGE;
  • interfaces — USB, Bluetooth;
  • memory card support — up to 2 GB.

pros

  • Gorgeous and bright 120Hz display
  • Best Cameras
  • Significantly improved iPhone 12 Pro battery life

Minuses

  • Fast charging limited to 20W
  • No face mask authentication

The iPhone 13 Pro is in every way a better smartphone than the iPhone 13 Pro Max, only slightly smaller and cheaper. Unlike years past, when the larger Pro Max was clearly the superior phone, there’s little difference between the two iPhone 13 Pro models. So you can choose the size you like, and for many, it will be the lower-priced 6.1-inch Pro variant.

For that money, you get a dynamically refreshing iPhone 13 Pro Max display. Like its big brother, the iPhone 13 Pro has a big battery — how big Apple didn’t say, but it delivered over 11.5 hours of battery life in our test. iPhone 13 Pro Max camera enhancements continue to iPhone 13 Pro, including powerful software features such as Cinematic Mode.

Buy the iPhone 13 Pro if you want the best features Apple offers in a smartphone, but in a slimmer design than the massive iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The first thing you should pay attention to in this heir to the iPhone Xr is the appearance of a dual camera. Despite the fact that outwardly the camera module came out rather awkward (on the Internet it has already been compared with the surprised Pokemon Pikachu or with the hero of Edvard Munch’s film «The Scream»), it really improved the shooting capabilities.

Therefore, landscapes, interesting buildings, groups of people, spacious interiors and moving objects can now be captured even better.” The second camera is also used when creating portrait mode. Another innovation in terms of photography is the night mode. In camera phones on Android, this function already exists, but for iPhones this is an innovation that has significantly improved the quality of shooting with a minimum of lighting, this is indicated by users of the 11th iPhone.

Dxomark gave the iPhone 11 camera a 3rd protocol score of 112 for stills and 101 for video. According to the 4th protocol, 129 points for a photo, 36 points for a zoom and 109 points for a video. The total score is 119 (17th place as of October 2021).

In fact, the camera ends with useful innovations compared to the iPhone Xr. Improved protection against water, but it is unlikely that anyone would think to check it, because. the manufacturer warns on its website: «Damage due to contact with liquid is not covered by the warranty.» Support for a second SIM card has appeared, but the second SIM card is not a full-fledged one, but just an eSIM. Otherwise, everything is the same as a year ago — the same unibrow, the same IPS screen, even the display diagonal is exactly the same.

IP68 waterproof rating per IEC 60529 (submersible up to 6 meters in water for up to 30 minutes).

There is no fingerprint scanner, instead face recognition using the TrueDepth camera.

Support for two SIM cards, one of which is standard, and the other is eSIM, which is not yet supported by all operators in Russia.

The cameras are the same as in the standard iPhone 12: 2 main cameras of 12 megapixels each, one of which is ultra-wide-angle with ƒ / 2.4 aperture and a viewing angle of 120 °, and the other is wide-angle with ƒ / 1.6 aperture, the front camera is also 12 megapixels ( ƒ/2.2).

What are the differences between the mini version and the 12th iPhone? There are three of them: a smaller screen size (5.4 inches versus 6.1); slightly lower resolution (2340×1080 vs. 2532×1170), as well as somewhat worse autonomy. Otherwise (processor, cameras, 5G support) the specifications are identical.

The average price in Russia is 700$.

The start date for sales in Russia is October 23, 2021. The novelty received 78% of fives according to reviews in Yandex Market and 92% of recommendations for purchase.

Specifications: 6.1-inch OLED screen with a monobrow familiar from previous models. Resolution — 2532 × 1170. OS — iOS 14. 128 permanent memory (the amount of RAM is not specified by the manufacturer), without a slot for a memory card. 6-core Apple A14 Bionic processor with 5G support. The manufacturer did not indicate the battery capacity, but indicated the battery life in different modes: listening to music up to 65 hours, playing video up to 17 hours, watching video in streaming mode up to 11 hours.

IP68 waterproof rating per IEC 60529 (submersible up to 6 meters in water for up to 30 minutes).

There is no fingerprint scanner, instead face recognition using the TrueDepth camera.

Support for two SIM cards, one of which is standard, and the other is eSIM, which is not yet supported by all operators in Russia.

As in the 11th iPhone, 2 main cameras of 12 megapixels, one of which is ultra-wide-angle with an aperture of ƒ / 2.4 and a viewing angle of 120 °, and the other is a wide-angle with an aperture of ƒ / 1.6.

The front camera is also 12 MP (ƒ/2.2).

The first thing you should pay attention to in the camera system is the excellent aperture ratio of the wide-angle camera — ƒ / 1.6 (for the 11th iPhone, this indicator was ƒ / 1.8, and, as you know, the lower this indicator, the better the camera shoots with insufficient lighting). The manufacturer’s website says that the new wide-angle camera is capable of capturing 27% more light. Night mode analyzes the surroundings and automatically turns on when there is a lack of light. You can now shoot in night mode on both the wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle cameras. The night mode also appeared in the selfie camera. The iPhone 12 camera scored 132 for photography, 41 for zoom, and 112 for video on Dxomark in Test Protocol 4. The total score is 122 (10th place as of October 2021).

In addition, the headphones and power adapter will now disappear from the package, you will have to buy them separately or use the headphones and adapter from the previous smartphone. Only the USB-C/Lightning cable will be included. The manufacturer explains this by concern for the environment: “Due to this, we have reduced the size of the packaging, and more goods are placed in containers, which in turn reduces the total volume of cargo transportation.”

8th place.

Apple iPhone 11 Pro 64GB

The average price in Russia is 600$.

The sales start date is September 20, 2021. This model received 93% of fives in reviews in Yandex Market and 61% of recommendations for purchase.

What are the advantages of the Pro version over the regular iPhone 11 and are they worth the extra money for them? The first difference is in the cameras. The first and second cameras are the same as in the iPhone 11, but a third one has been added — a telephoto camera with f / 2.0 aperture. It allows you to zoom in when you can’t get closer, such as when you’re shooting wildlife or sports. And also to make portraits of professional quality. The front camera is the same as in the iPhone 11: 12 MP and f / 2.2 aperture. The second, much more important difference is the OLED screen, as opposed to the IPS on the standard version. The manufacturer writes the following about the iPhone 11 Pro screen: “This is the best and sharpest display Apple has created for the iPhone. The image on it looks brighter in sunlight. Detail in the highlights is even richer, and blacks are even richer. Watching HDR video on this display is a pleasure.” Other advantages no longer look so obvious. For example, the version of the iPhone 11 Pro has the best water protection, namely, it can be immersed in water to a depth of 4 meters instead of two for the iPhone 11. The manufacturer also indicated another difference: a slightly more capacious battery — 18 hours of video playback instead of 17 for the iPhone eleven.

Specifications of the iPhone 11 Pro: 5.8-inch screen with a unibrow (on all promotional photos, the screen and the unibrow merge, so it’s impossible to understand whether it is or not, but it’s still the same as the iPhone Xs a year ago). Screen type — OLED. Resolution 2436×1125. OS iOS 13. 64 GB of permanent and 6 GB of RAM, without a slot for a memory card. Apple A13 Bionic processor. Support SIM + eSIM.

Battery capacity 3046 mAh.

We figured out the differences from the iPhone 11, but it’s more appropriate to compare the iPhone 11 Pro with the iPhone Xs, of which the iPhone 11 Pro is the successor. Here the differences are as follows: again, the third main camera, the second front camera, improved performance, increased autonomy, better screen.

7th place.

Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max 64GB

A fast charging adapter is included in the package.

The iPhone 11 Pro Max differs from the iPhone 11 Pro in a larger screen (6.5 inches vs. 5.8) and a more powerful battery. When compared with the iPhone Xs Max, there are differences in the quality of photography (3 cameras versus two) and again in the battery, as mentioned above, the iPhone 11 Pro Max works up to 5 hours longer.

6th place.

Apple iPhone 12 Pro 128GB

The average price in Russia is 800$.

The start date for sales in Russia is October 23, 2021. Apple’s new flagship received 100% fives on reviews in Yandex Market and 92% of recommendations for purchase.

The front camera is also 12 MP (ƒ/2.2). The selfie camera scored 101 for stills and 93 for video.

As for the wide-angle camera, we can repeat what has already been said about the standard iPhone 12: aperture has improved to ƒ / 1.6, due to which the camera is able to capture 27% more light. Night mode analyzes the surroundings and automatically turns on when there is a lack of light. You can now shoot in night mode on both the wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle cameras. The night mode also appeared in the selfie camera.

Video recording capabilities have also improved. On the site .

Like the standard iPhone 12, the Pro version comes without headphones and a charging adapter. They will have to be purchased separately.

What is the difference between the Pro version and the standard iPhone 12? The minimum amount of memory for the iPhone 12 is 64 GB (there is a 128 GB version of the iPhone 12), while the Pro version has 128. The Pro version has three cameras instead of two for the standard version. All other characteristics (processor, screen, battery) are identical. Therefore, if we compare the iPhone 12 128GB and the iPhone 12 Pro 128GB, then in fact the difference is only in the quality of photo and video shooting.

If we compare the iPhone 12 Pro with the iPhone 11 Pro, then the new version has a better processor, cameras, water resistance, a larger screen, more memory in the minimum configuration.

The new 7-element lens on the main camera, combined with a wider aperture than before, means better low-light photos and sharper images overall.

The LCD panel that Apple used on the iPhone 12 predecessor is gone, replaced by an OLED screen that offers the same 6.1 inches of display real estate as before. You’re still limited to 64GB of storage in the base model, and there’s no charger included with the phone, but otherwise it’s a stellar addition to the iPhone lineup. And Apple recently made a revolution by adding purple to five other colors for the iPhone 12.

Dior Touch Phone

Fashion house Christian Dior decided to start producing not only clothes, but also phones. The brand presented a touchphone, which consists of 99 hand-assembled parts by the best craftsmen in France.

The phone is a monoblock that weighs 137 g. The device runs on the Android operating system. The gadget is equipped with:

  • 3.2-inch display;
  • 5 megapixel camera;
  • microSD memory card slot;
  • GPS receiver;
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support;
  • technology for playing Dolby Audio music.

But the most interesting thing about Touch Phone is diamonds and sapphires. Gold, steel and sapphire glass were used to make the luxury device. For a soft reflection, the phone panels were equipped with mother-of-pearl. The case is also encrusted with diamonds. The price of such a phone is $122,000.

TOP 8 Best iPhone smartphones in 2021

price may vary

Expired

Screen size: 6.1 inch LCD screen (1792×828) CPU: A13 Bionic Cameras: dual 12MP (/1.8) and ultra wide (ƒ/2.4) / 12MP front (/2.2) RAM / Storage: 4 GB / 64 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB

pros

  • Affordable price
  • Excellent battery life
  • Fast A13 processor

Minuses

  • 64 GB of memory in the base model
  • Fast charger not included

The iPhone 11 is no longer a novelty, it is being replaced by the Apple iPhone 12 models. But it is still available and it is the cheapest of all the brand’s smartphones. The price, combined with the fact that the A13 Bionic processor is still more powerful than recently released Android phones, makes it a solid buy even a year after its debut.

As with the iPhone 12, you forgo a dedicated telephoto lens, as the iPhone 11 has a 12MP wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle camera. It supports the same camera effects as the rest of the iPhone 11 family, including portrait shots, ultra-wide-angle selfies, and night mode for better low-light photos. You can also expect more than 11 hours of battery life, although you’ll have to buy a separately sold fast-charge adapter to ensure that you can back up at the highest speeds.

Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is Samsung’s classic flagship

This is the most powerful and expensive device in the latest generation of Samsung flagships. In many ways, it is similar to its predecessor, but there are also many notable changes. But which smartphone is better considering the price difference? The novelty has become even more powerful and received a completely different design, but let’s see if it’s worth the overpayment that the manufacturer is asking for.

The display in the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is top-end, and the Dynamic AMOLED 2X matrix and 6.8 ”diagonal are impressive. The screen has good color reproduction and a large margin of brightness of 1500 nits.

Compared to its predecessor, the cameras have also changed. The Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G has two zoom modules at once — one for 3x magnification, the second for 10x. The smartphone has a good stabilization system that allows you to shoot with zoom even at night. The resolution of the main module is 108 megapixels.

An important feature of the novelty, which was not in previous generations of flagships, was the support for the S Pen stylus. You need to buy it separately, and there is no place for it in the phone case, as in the Note series smartphones. In return, Samsung offers branded cases with a pocket for an electronic pen.

The flagship was equipped with an Exynos 2100 processor, which provided a 20% increase in power compared to the S20 Ultra. Also on board is 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal memory. The battery capacity is 5000 mAh. In the normal mode of using the smartphone, the battery is confidently enough for a day. In games, the gadget is discharged faster — after 7-8 hours.

If you need a high-performance smartphone with a good camera, one of the best options is the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. You will have to pay from 750$ for the 128 GB version or from 93,000 for 512 GB.

Advantages:

  • high-quality QHD + display at 120 Hz;
  • productive processor;
  • excellent camera;
  • 10x optical zoom;
  • S Pen support.

Flaws:

  • no microSD slot;
  • no charger included.

iPhone SE 2021

Apple8

Screen size: 4.7″ Retina HD (1334 x 750) CPU: A13 Bionic Cameras: 12MP (f/1.8) / 12MP front (f/2.2) RAM / Storage: unknown / 64 GB, 128 GB, 512 GB

pros

  • Affordable price
  • Top-notch A13 processor
  • Compact design

Minuses

  • No night mode on camera
  • Large frames

A good iPhone is impossible to hold onto, which is why Apple has revived the iPhone SE four years after the original low-cost compact iPhone was released. The 2021 iPhone SE is a little bigger than before — with a 4.7-inch screen and the form factor of a discontinued iPhone 8 — but it’s kept the price low, which will appeal to iPhone fans looking for the best deal.

It’s not just the price that makes the iPhone SE so attractive. The phone runs on the same A13 processor as the iPhone 11, so the iPhone SE will remain a productive phone for years to come, especially as regular iOS updates add new features. You only get one rear camera with this phone, but it’s a good one, complete with the A13’s neural engine to complement your photos with computer-generated photography.

As our 2021 iPhone SE battery tests have shown, this isn’t the longest lasting iPhone, and we want this camera to support Apple’s night mode for better low-light photography. But if you’re looking for premium power in a phone that fits comfortably in one hand, iPhone SE is made for you.

Motorola Razr 5G — back to basics

Motorola’s large foldable display smartphone is inspired by the legendary Razr clamshells that have become an important part of the company’s history. The Motorola Razr 5G looks and feels almost like the classic frogs of yesteryear. The developers have focused on retro design without futurism.

The smartphone is equipped with a 6.2-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2142×876 pixels. On the outside there is an additional screen with a diagonal of 2.7”. With it, you can make calls, control music, view messages and even play built-in games.

The main camera received only one 48 megapixel module. It has a fast f/1.7 optics and an optical stabilizer with laser autofocus. The same camera can be used as a front camera if you shoot on a closed phone. The 48 MP selfie is an interesting feature. The same is offered by the above Flip 3 from Samsung.

The main disadvantage of the Motorola Razr 5G is a weak processor by modern standards. The developers have chosen for the flagship Snapdragon 765G. It is hardly enough for demanding games, but the smartphone is not positioned as a gaming one.

The battery capacity is small — only 2800 mAh. The battery charge hardly lasts for a day even with not the most active use of the phone. If you watch videos or play games, the battery will run out in 4-6 hours.

With the price of Motorola Razr 5G starting from 1200$, buying this gadget may seem like a strange idea, and one and a half times cheaper, you can buy a more productive Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3. Developers from Motorola have relied on retrodesign.

Advantages:

  • original design and form factor of a clamshell;
  • ergonomics (smartphone can be opened with one hand);
  • good image quality, despite the lack of additional modules.

Flaws:

  • weak autonomy;
  • low power processor.

How to choose the best iPhone for you

The best way to determine which iPhone you should buy is to analyze the features and functionality that are most important to you. If battery life is particularly important, look for larger iPhones, as they tend to have larger batteries to match the screen size. What’s more, since iOS is known to be generally efficient in terms of power consumption, even smaller models tend to last longer than average on a single charge.

If camera quality is your thing for your next iPhone purchase, the top-tier Pro options are easy recommendations thanks to their triple-lens design that allows you to capture multiple different viewpoints, from zoomed-out ultra-wide-angle images to shallow depth. They also excel in difficult lighting scenarios, such as when shooting in a dimly lit room or outdoors at night.

If maximizing savings on your next smartphone purchase is your top priority, you should have no hesitation in buying an iPhone SE 2021 or iPhone XR. They’re cheaper in Apple’s range, but they’re still made from flagship-quality materials with enough power and performance to withstand years of use.

However, do not forget about the memory for storing data. As a rule, the amount of memory of a smartphone proportionally increases along with its cost.

All iPhones mentioned here run the latest version of iOS, Apple’s mobile operating system. And they can update to iOS 14, the new version that comes with iPhone 12. (In fact, iPhones related to iPhone 6s and the original iPhone SE can run iOS 14, including the upcoming iOS 14.5 update).

As always, you’ll hear rumors about upcoming iPhones. But even with the rumors about the iPhone 13 now being fully credible, Apple will most likely not release a new phone until the fall of 2021. This is the perfect time to buy a new iPhone and make sure it doesn’t go out of date instantly.

How we test iPhones

Like any other smartphone, we evaluate it in real use scenarios for several days. We also test Apple phones using a wide range of performance measurement apps that allow us to compare iPhone performance to what Android devices are capable of. In addition to synthetic tests, we also run real-world tests, including the Adobe Premiere Rush video transcoding test, which compares iPhone’s processing speed to other devices.

In our lab, we use a light meter to measure display quality data such as brightness and color accuracy to help us evaluate the display of the best iPhones. Our own battery test determines longevity without recharging by endlessly streaming web pages over an LTE network. We then recharge the iPhone to see how fast they charge in 15-minute intervals.

In order to compare the cameras, we take any iPhone that we study and shoot photos in various settings. We also take a comparable smartphone with us to see how effective iPhone photos are.

We’re looking at Apple’s iOS improvements, testing gaming performance, and evaluating the phone’s dynamics, and each of these factors play a role in our final verdict.

Features of Apple iPhone smartphones

Apple is sensitive to its own offspring called the iPhone. Buyers expect premium design, professional quality photos and videos. There are even films shot entirely on the iPhone — this is eloquent evidence of the highest quality of shooting.

Among the many advantages, there are some characteristic disadvantages:

  • To connect to a computer, you need the iTunes program — you can’t just connect the iPhone to the computer and upload the files like on a USB drive. You need to install the program and upload files through it;
  • Limited Bluetooth operation — the wireless module is used to connect headsets, headphones, smart watches and some gadgets. You cannot transfer files through it;
  • Expensive repairs — this is quite natural, because the repair of a sports car is more expensive than the products of the domestic auto industry;
  • Expensive accessories — the original 20W charger costs , MagSafe charger for the latest models — , car charger — , wireless battery — ;
  • You cannot install a memory card — if you take a smartphone with 64 GB, remember that you will not be able to expand the storage.

Also, iPhone smartphones have a high cost, which jumps up and down, making it impossible to guess the moment when the purchase will be the most profitable.
