Today, we are going to talk about the best iPhone reviews in 2019 and how it affects mobile app development services.
14. iPhone 2007 (Review in 2019)
let’s start where this all started. The original iPhone from 2007 and it’s unbelievable how much this single device impacted and revolutionized the market.
We are now with literally every single person having a smartphone in their pocket at all times. The iPhone was really something special and well I think it is the first of its kind does leave it mostly void of criticism.
It didn’t have a competitive price point. It lacked 3G network capabilities. The build quality wasn’t very good all things considered and it’s unfortunate that they heard problems with it because I think this probably should have been the phone to beat.
So the first iPhone was amazing don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think we can call it the best.
13. iPhone 3G 2008 (Review in 2019)
luckily all these issues in the first iPhone were fixed in the next iteration of the 2008 iPhone 3G. It had 3G and a much better price point did that made it more appealing to potential buyers,
It also degraded the iPhone from an aluminum body to a plastic one. Even if the aluminum wasn’t very good in the first place, I would say plastic is worse and the phone brought nearly nothing, except for the aforementioned improvements.
Not to mention it’s as slow as molasses on its latest update iOS 4. For the time, the iPhone 3G was a success but with perfect hindsight, we can see that it really didn’t bring a whole lot to even consider it good.
12. iPhone 3GS 2009 (Review in 2019)
This phone brought much better speeds and a much better camera. A typical a slight upgrade that we’ve become accustomed too.
This phone was actually the first one to record video which is cool and it ran really well on each iOS version it received up to iOS 6. The 3GS is one of the most solid well-rounded iPhones in my opinion but it isn’t exciting.
There really weren’t any big-name features and so it’s with some regret I have to say as much as I love this phone. It can’t be considered the best although I would say that it could be considered great.
11. iPhone4 2010 (Review in 2019)
It brought so much is the biggest redesign in the iPhone line until the iPhone 10 and overall just being a masterpiece. You could tell Steve Jobs really loved this phone when he announced it and for a good reason.
It was a beautiful device. We had a new stainless steel frame and glass back. A far cry from the plastic of a year prior.
This design has held up amazingly well, especially considering the iPhone 10 switched back to it last year.
We got the first ever Retina display and it looked amazing compared to the iPhone 3GS and literally every other smartphone at the time. Apple was so ahead of the game in 2010.
It wasn’t even close and this phone really cemented that fact but as much as the iPhone 4 brought it wasn’t perfect.
Antenna gate was a thing basically if you covered the antennas with your hand, you would drop calls which was a pain in a major design flaw and of course, the iPhone 4 was supported all the way to iOS 7 which is extremely slow on this device.
In all fairness, it did speed up significantly with 7.1 but that damage was already done It’s still hard to argue that it isn’t not only one of the best iPhones but best smartphones in general.
10. iPhone 4s 2011 (Review in 2019)
iPhone 4S was your typical S line upgrade for the most part. Faster speeds, better camera. 4S was really solid at launch but it was still pretty small and didn’t bring a whole lot new to the table.
It also has aged the worst of basically any iPhone being practically unusable on iOS 9.3.5. The 4S unfortunately is not one of the best iPhones but probably one of the worst simply for how poorly it’s aged.
09. iPhone 5 2012 (Review in 2019)
The iPhone 5 was the latest Steve Jobs era iPhone. As well, he had passed on by it’s released it. Still held his input for the design and carried the last classic iteration of software we saw iOS 6.
The phone was crazy fast with a huge upgrade over the 4S doubling its RAM and it was just a pleasure to use this size was perfect for a lot of people and it’s one of the lightest iPhones we’ve ever seen. The design was so good.
Apple reused it with both the 5S and four years later with the SE. Furthermore the iPhone 5 felt fast on every single version of iOS it received. That’s seriously impressive and it’s fair to say, this is one of the best iPhones Apple has ever made.
08. iPhone 5c 2013 (Review in 2019)
It ran well and if you had one you probably liked it. It wasn’t a bad phone but literally, the only reason it that it was even okay because it was literally just the iPhone 5 and a cheaper plastic shell.
This was a mess of a phone and at only $100 less than the 5s. There was no reason to buy the 5C. This is definitely one of the worst iPhones ever created and is probably the most pointless.
07. iPhone 5s 2013 (Review in 2019)
This phone made a bigger impact on the smartphone world that I think few main upgrades that really mattered touch ID for one as it completely changed the way everybody handled smartphone security and then the A7 chipset.
The A7 chipset had the first 64-bit architecture in a smartphone. Let me assure you this was a huge deal and pushed Android manufacturers into a frenzy to try to match it.
The iPhone 5s was forward thinking in every way imaginable. It has aged the best of any iPhone ever by far. With it still being updatable to iOS 12 right now.
This phone from 2013 can do almost everything the newest iPhone 10S can do. That’s absolutely insane. The iPhone 5S is without a doubt one of the best iPhones ever.
06. iPhone 6 and 6 plus 2014 (Review in 2019)
Apple had been killing it with the iPhone 5 and 5S. iPhone 6 seemed to continue that trend. We had to size options. Both were much bigger than any iPhone we had ever seen.
The phones brought a much-needed refresh to the iPhone line and the sales reflected that. The iPhone 6 and 6 plus are the best selling smartphones ever. With over 220 million units shipped. That’s an insane number and it is completely unmatched by any other modern device.
iPhone 6 was a massive success back then. bend-gate, of course, was a thing and this resulted in not only bending but touch disease. As well as a variety of other issues.
The phone also didn’t bring hardly anything new other than the size and so for me, I would consider being one of the worst iPhones Apple has ever done. Simply because they could have made it so much better.
05. iPhone 6s and 6s, 2015 (Review in 2019)
These phones looked essentially the same as the iPhone 6 but they brought some extremely necessary additions. The most important was the higher grade aluminum that greatly increased the durability. So the phone’s no longer would Bend. We also had a huge jump in performance and in the camera, this is about as good of an S line upgrade as they come.
We also got a 3D touch headphone jack and he’s still a very good second generation touch ID. This was a great phone and perhaps even one of the best.
04. iPhone SE, Early 2016 (Review in 2019)
There was a small portion of the market that felt ostracized by the bigger iPhones. There hadn’t been a small one in about two and a half years at this point. The last phone was the 5S.
The SE served to appeal to these customers and it did the SE had the same body as the 5S but with the internals of these successes, it was a great little phone and it came out an even better little price.
Even today, the SE is one of the best of budget options out there but it isn’t one of the best iPhones. While it was great for what it was the SE used in the old design and brought nothing new. It isn’t the best iPhone ever.
03. iPhone 7 and 7 plus, late 2016 (Review in 2019)
This was a bit of a polarizing release. The iPhone 7 removed the headphone jack and it’s easy to say, people weren’t especially impressed.
The phone looked too similar to the iPhone 6 to be considered much of a redesign and while it brought water resistance and first secondary camera lens.
It just wasn’t unique enough for people to get behind it. Unfortunately, there is no way to consider this phone to be one of the best.
02. iPhone 8 and 8 plus, 2017 (Review in 2019)
These phones were meant to be cheaper options for those who weren’t ready to give up the home button and they were actually pretty good for what they were. In fact, I’ve called them massively underrated in the past.
The iPhone 8 brought a glass back where I was charging a better camera and so on. But it was all overshadowed by its bigger and better brother which we’ll talk about right.
01. iPhone 10, 2017 (Review in 2019)
I think it’s fair to say, this is one of the best phones we have ever seen. It had the biggest redesign of any iPhone ever or at least since the iPhone 4.
We’ve done away with the home button and have a near bezel as a display. Only intruded by a notch that holds apples very cool face ID technology.
Love it or hate it, it’s hard to argue that the iPhone 10 is one of Apple’s best phones ever to be released. Additionally, it brought an emoji and we all know how important an emoji is.
That’s about every single iPhone eligible to be considered the best. Again we aren’t going to be looking at either the 10S or the 10R. As in my opinion, they’re too new and can’t really be looked at objectively.
