Which iPhone Should You Buy?
In 2007, Apple revolutionized the smartphone industry with the iPhone 2G. Years later, other smartphone manufacturers start to follow suit by introducing smartphones with different variants that cater to every consumer’s needs. Apple did the same strategy by making four variants of the iPhone, including the standard iPhone, the Pro version, the Pro Max, and the SE.
As a consumer, choosing the best iPhone for your needs can be pretty tough. So in this guide, I’ll help you decide which iPhone to buy.
Author’s note: I know the iPhone 12 series is right around the corner; this is for those people who can’t wait to get their hands on an iPhone.
iPhone SE (2nd Generation)
Released on April 15, 2020, the 2nd Generation iPhone SE has the same processor powering Apple’s current flagship devices, but it now comes in a more compact and affordable package. It’s got the iPhone 8 design with an A13 Bionic chipset, a 12MP rear-facing, and a 7MP front-facing camera capable of recording in 4K. It features Touch-ID, is IP67 certified, and is also powered by a 1,821mAh battery with support for Apple’s 18W fast charging.
If you’re looking for an iPhone in a small form factor and don’t mind having a 720p display, then the 2nd Generation iPhone SE is for you. Pricing starts at PHP 26,490 for the 64GB variant.
Although less pricey than its predecessor, the iPhone XR, at launch, the iPhone 11 still offers impressive specs. It’s’s got a 12MP full camera coupled with a 12MP ultrawide lens and is powered with an A13 Bionic chip with 4GB of RAM. Powering this device is a 3110mAh with support for Apple’s 18W fast charging and uses FaceID for security.
If you are coming from a four-year-old iPhone model (iPhone 8 and below) and in search of a new one, the iPhone 11 is a pretty nice upgrade. It starts at PHP 47,990 for the 64GB variant and is available in 6 colors, including White, Black, Green, Yellow, Purple, and Product Red.
iPhone 11 Pro & Pro Max
Featuring an OLED display, a surgical grade metal, and a quad-camera setup, the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro max are the most expensive iPhones on this list. These two are Apple’s current top of the line iPhones that come in two sizes: 5.8-inches for the 11 Pro and a massive 6.5-inches for the 11 Pro Max. Both sport a Super Retina XDR display.
Like the iPhone SE and the iPhone 11, they are both powered with the A13 Bionic chip. Powering the 11 Pro is a 3046mAh battery while the 11 Pro Max is at 3969mAh. Both support Apple’s 18W fast charging and FaceID.
If you are looking for the best iPhone and don’t bother spending a huge amount of money, then these iPhone is for you. The iPhone 11 Pro starts at PHP 67,990 (64GB) while the iPhone 11 Pro Max is at PHP 73,990 (64GB).
Even though the iPhone XR was released two years ago, surprisingly, Apple is still currently selling it on its website. It packs almost the same specs as the iPhone 11. It has a 12MP wide camera, a 7MP front-facing camera, an A12 Bionic chip with 3GB of RAM, and a 2942mAh battery with support for Apple’s 15W fast charging. It is available in a slew of colors, including Black, Yellow, Blue, Coral, White, and Product Red.
If you’re in the market for the cheapest iPhone that sports the latest iPhone design, then the iPhone XR is one of the best ones you can get. Even though it was released two years ago, its battery life and performance are still up to par by today’s iPhones. It starts at PHP 40,990 for the 64GB variant.
