Apple recently announced three new iPhones: iPhone8, iPhone8 Plus and iPhone X (pronounced ten). The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will be available for preorder on September 15, and the iPhone X will be available for preorder on October 27.
But for those planning to buy an Apple smartphone, those aren’t your only choices. If a $1,000 phone isn’t in your budget, you might want to consider an older, less sophisticated model in the company’s lineup. This guide should make it easier for you to choose the right iPhone for your business.
At $349 (32GB) to $449 (128GB), the iPhone SE is the most affordable iPhone on the market. The phone is 4 inches, like the classic old-school iPhone, and ships with EarPods, a 5W USB power adapter and a lightning to USB cable.
The iPhone SE packs a lot of functionality into a small, relatively inexpensive package. The 12-MP camera and 5x digital zoom makes the phone ideal for taking casual snapshots. The Touch ID makes unlocking the phone easy, and the iPhone SE is Apple Pay-enabled and comes with iOS 11.
The SE has a (claimed) battery life of between 13 and 14 hours, but based on our tests, which involve continuous surfing over Wi-Fi, we recorded 8 hours and 35 minutes. The resolution won’t blow you away (1136 x 640 pixels, or 326 ppi), but most people probably aren’t watching movies on a phone this size anyway.
It’s true that the iPhone SE has an older generation processor, an A9, and there are rumors that Apple will unveil a newer version of the SE in 2018, but that doesn’t mean the current iPhone SE is a bad choice. In fact, the iPhone SE offers excellent bang for your buck, and it has a headphone jack.
iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus
The iPhone 6s retails for $449 (32GB) or $549 (128GB) and the iPhone 6s Plus costs either $549 (32GB) or $649 (128GB), depending on the storage size.
The rear cameras on the iPhone 6s line are the same as the rear cameras on the iPhone SE, but the front-facing cameras on the 6s and 6s Plus have 5-MP FaceTime HD with Retina Flash, which Apple claims makes for better selfies and face timing.
In terms of the display quality, the iPhone 6s has the same resolution as the iPhone SE (326 ppi), but it’s slightly larger, at 4.7 inches, so if you want the most inexpensive 4.7 inch iPhone on the market, opt for the 6s with 32GB and you’ll be satisfied. The iPhone 6s Plus has significantly better resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels, 401 ppi) than either the 6s or SE, and a considerably larger 5.5-inch display.
The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus both have an A9 CPU with an embedded motion coprocessor and ship with the same accessories as the iPhone SE. The two lines, the SE and 6s, are so similar that unless screen size is a deal breaker, there’s no reason to opt for the 6s or 6s Plus while the lower-cost iPhone SE is still available.
