Which iPhone to buy Comparison and purchase advice 2020

Several iPhones appear every year, while older models are still available for a longer period of time. After the flagship series around the iPhone 11 from last fall, the new iPhone SE recently appeared. If you want to get a new iPhone, we will help you to find the right iOS device for your needs.

In addition to the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max belong to the current flagship generation. But the iPhone Xs, iPhone Xr or iPhone 8 are still available. We will help you with the question of which iPhone is right for you and show you the advantages and disadvantages of the respective iPhone models.

iPhone 11 Pro Max: The best

If you want the best Apple technology currently available in smartphone format, you can grab the iPhone 11 Pro or iPhone 11 Pro Max. The only difference between the normal and the Pro model is the display. The iPhone 11 Pro Max has a screen diagonal of 6.5 inches and, together with the iPhone Xs Max, is the largest Apple cell phone. The normal Max model is 5.8-inch diagonal. The Super Retina XDR display is particularly impressive due to its optimal brightness, high contrast and full colors.

The 11 model has the most powerful battery and with the Apple Bionic A13 the most powerful processor in Apple phones. The triple camera comes with a 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto sensor and an ultra-wide-angle lens. In conjunction with the software, very good recordings are possible. One advantage over the normal iPhone 11 is the camera, which comes with an additional telephoto lens. The iPhone 11 Pro is available in 64 gigabytes, 256 gigabytes or 512 gigabytes.

Which iPhone should I buy? iPhone SE - cheap but good

If you want to enjoy the advantages of an iOS mobile phone without tearing your wallet too wide, the new iPhone SE from 2020 is the right device for you. Visually, the device is based on the iPhone 8, technically it leaves the 8-series model and its namesake, the iPhone SE from 2016, far to the left. Inside the iPhone for the smaller budget, the A13 works with the same processor that is also used in the premium series around the iPhone 11. Compared to the flagships, however, you have to cut back on the slightly smaller RAM and the screen. The 4.7-inch LCD has a resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels. You have to do without the 3D touch function and Face ID. When it comes to the camera, the iPhone SE loses out against its big brother, but it still offers excellent recordings and photos.

Conclusion: The iPhone SE is suitable for everyone who is looking for an iPhone with the latest technology and does not want to dig deep into their pockets. Even if the current flagship series is too big for you, the iPhone SE gives you a powerful piece of technology in a compact housing. +

What about the iPhone Xr?

The previous generation iPhone Xr is still a strong smartphone in 2020. In terms of price, it is lower than the direct successor, the iPhone 11. There are hardly any notable differences in terms of appearance and the iPhone Xr and the iPhone 11 also have some similarities on the inside. One disadvantage of the Xr is the A12 Bionic processor. Here, the iPhone 11 with the A13-Bionic accesses noticeably more power. The older Apple device also has the disadvantage of the camera. In addition to the 12-megapixel camera, the 11 series also has an ultra-wide-angle lens. You also have to do without the night mode with the old Xr.

iPhone Xr: offers at a glance

Conclusion: The iPhone Xr is still a strong piece of technology, but cannot keep up with Apple's current flagships in terms of performance. Since the two devices are usually not that far apart in terms of price, we recommend using the updated 11 device. You can find out more here: iPhone 11 vs. iPhone Xr in comparison.

And otherwise?

In addition to the devices mentioned, there are also some older iPhones available. Starting with the iPhone 6s, all Apple cell phones will still be equipped with the current iOS version. According to rumors, none of the devices will fall by the wayside with the next update to iOS 14. In the absence of iOS updates, older iPhones without iOS 13 should be avoided.

If you are still looking for an iPhone with the classic home button, we recommend taking a look at the iPhone 8. Outwardly, it can hardly be distinguished from the latest device, the iPhone SE 2. Technically, the iPhone 8 will still be sufficient for most everyday tasks in 2020, even if it naturally cannot keep up with the successor models from Apple. Especially in combination with a mobile phone contract, the savings between an old iOS device and a new iPhone are not as serious as not being able to use one of the current generation devices. We show you the latest iPhone offers with and without a mobile phone contract.
