Choose an iPhone That Meets Your Specific Needs
Whenever you purchase a smartphone, you need to choose a make and model that meets your specific needs. In our experience, cell phone users are looking for one of the following options:
(1) A simple device for calling and texting only.
(2) A relatively simple device for calling, texting, and browsing the internet with several downloaded applications.
(3) An advanced device for calling, texting, game-play, and application use.
(4) A highly advanced device for multi-functional use, including business organization.
There are iPhones that can meet all of these needs. For category one, we recommend an iPhone 4 or 5. You'll have the ability to download applications and play games, but you'll also have a simple phone that isn't too expensive. For categories two and three, we recommend an iPhone 6 or 7. Advanced capabilities and developments on these phones will impress and meet your expectations. It helps that iPhone prices are dropping, thanks to new Apple Smartphone releases.
Finally, for category four, we recommend an iPhone 8 or iPhone X. The iPhone X, in particular, is guaranteed to impress. Many iPhone lovers are waiting for the iPhone X release and skimping on the iPhone 8 altogether. We can't blame them, based on this impressive iPhone X information.
Carefully Consider Your Allegiance to Apple
Still, you may decide iPhones are too expensive. After all, Android phones can be more easily repaired by third-party shops and they often start at more reasonable prices. Why over-do it? If you think you may not want to use Apple Smartphone products anymore, we recommend reading about the most affordable smartphones of the year. You can also read our article on choosing the right Android Smartphone for you.
Apple has several advantages over Android, including:
(1) Unique and groundbreaking applications.
(2) A sleeker design.
(3) An easy-to-use interface.
(4) Impressive camera power.
Still, Android has similar advantages over Apple, including:
(1) More customization and personalization options.
(2) Dozens of affordable options.
(3) A wide variety of applications.
Think carefully before making a final decision. If you choose to stick with an Apple Smartphone - good for you! We'll move to the next section.
Determine Your Budget
Once you've pulled together a vague idea of your smartphone needs, you'll need to develop a budget. When it comes to iPhones and iOS systems, there are limited options to go around. You can choose from versions of the iPhone 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and X. It can be difficult to obtain an iPhone 4 or 5, so prepare yourself. You'll need to spend anywhere from $100 to $500 to obtain a usable iPhone. We'd plan on spending between $200 and $300, at the minimum.
