Ten years of iPhone are many and Apple has celebrated the anniversary by presenting the X (read as "ten", never "X"), its most transgressive and disruptive model since the arrival of the terminal to the market. The California manufacturer has one of the highest satisfaction and customer retention rates in the industry, and for this reason, there are few who test the iPhone and leave the platform by other manufacturers.Now, if someone wants to buy their first terminal of this popular mobile, it will not have anything easy: Apple has, for the first time, an extensive range of options and prices that we will decipher next.
Apple currently has the following iPhone models in its catalog: SE, 6s (6s Plus), 7 (7 Plus), 8 (8 Plus) and X, with a range of prices ranging from 429 to 1,159 euros What model to choose?
The small terminal of the house has its own category since it is aimed at a very specific audience: the one who completely rejects large screens. The SE has a tiny screen (according to the current canons) of just 3.5 inches, for those who still appreciate being able to operate the terminal with one hand and carry it in their pocket without worries. Being so tiny also has other advantages, such as enjoying a long battery life and a price that a few years ago we did not imagine on an iPhone: from 419 euros. But let no one be misled: it is small but bully, sharing processor, camera and unlocking fingerprint with larger models like the iPhone 6s; it is, in fact, a reduced version only in size of the powerful iPhone.
The world of 4.7 inches
The following classification will be done, once again, by screen size, since in the catalog of Tim Cook's, it jumps from 3.5 inches to 4.7 inches, which do not reach the mobile mega formats, but already they allow to enjoy without problems of multimedia content. With this size we find the iPhone 6s, 7 and 8 (from 529, 639 and 809 euros respectively). What are the differences? Let's say that within this group there are, in turn, two categories: the one made up of the 6s and 7 on the one hand, and the one of the 8, on the other. We started with the last, as it has just been presented in the shadow of the X and with some ninguneo by the media: the iPhone 8 is a very complete smartphone that enjoys the A11 Bionic chip (the fastest on the market), finally the Expected wireless charging and True Tone screen technology, which adapts colors to outdoor lighting to achieve the maximum possible realism. Is it worth the price? No doubt for those who want a high range that offers the most advanced technology and forget about connectors when loading.
The 6s, on the other hand, is the most discrete model of the category, but this does not mean that it can be referred to as a simple terminal; in fact, the little more than one hundred euros that separate it from the 7 come fundamentally from three differential factors: the second has resistance to water, a haptic home button (not physical) and a processor between 40 and 50% faster than The 6s, according to the manufacturer's data.
Large formats and models for 'photographers'
We continue to unravel the models and reach the 5.5 inches screen, once again, divided into three models: 6s Plus, 7 Plus and 8 Plus. The separation made by the manufacturer is very similar to the view in the family of 4.7 inches, only that in this case, the camera itself is decisive when choosing the model. The 6s Plus is a 6s grown in size and stop counting, but the 7 Plus features as a category dressing the double camera and its popular "portrait mode" and the bokeh effect. The jump given by the manufacturer to present this double lens has been such that it has managed to drag the industry of premium phones that have run to offer similar alternatives. The 7 Plus will undoubtedly be the alternative chosen by photography lovers, but those who want that extra plus and are willing to expand the budget, will no doubt keep the 8 Plus. This new model offers the aforementioned wireless charging (it also supports the expected fast charging), a rear glazed design, the new A11 Bionic processor that multiplies the features of the previous model and new possibilities in the Portrait effect.
The iPhone X, the other league
Own category, separate ... One point and separate. The model of the anniversary, as usual, has disappointed and impressed equally in the media, but as often happens, Apple will have problems to meet the exorbitant demand of the terminal. The market wanted a change and the manufacturer has not been cut at the time of offering it, although with its nuances. The X is a trangresor in design, but will not leave behind the rest of owners of previous iPhones that will feel comfortable in this model. Your main hooks? The popular FaceID, or unlocking with the face, an unknown that we assume that - considering how the house spends - will be a standard in the industry in the future, more screen size in a more compact format than the iPhone 8 Plus and a design that will spin many heads.
