I’ve tried every single iPhone currently available — here’s my ranking of the 7 iPhones you can buy right now (AAPL)

If you want to buy an iPhone right now, you have seven different options to choose from. 

From the brand-new, futuristic iPhone XS to the old-but-good iPhone 7, the current iPhone lineup has a range of devices and price points. 

At this point, I’ve tried all seven of Apple’s current iPhones. And although the iPhone XS is gorgeous and powerful, it’s not the phone I would recommend to most people. 

It’s worth noting that in September, Apple discontinued a bunch of its older phones, including the iPhone SE, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and iPhone X. If you’re curious about any of those devices, you can still see how they ranked last year.

Here’s my ranking of all the iPhones you can buy today: 

7. iPhone 8 Plus

The iPhone 8 Plus is in a weird position. It’s only a 1-year-old phone, but there’s not much incentive to buy it. 

The device has some solid features — wireless charging, Apple’s year-old A11 chip, and a top-of-the-line camera — but it’s certainly not a bargain, especially compared to the iPhone XR, which you can get for only $ 50 more.

Price: Starts at $ 699

6. iPhone XS Max

The iPhone XS Max is an absolutely beautiful device, but it’s cursed by two things: its giant size and its giant price tag. 

The phone starts at $ 1,099, but can cost as much as $ 1,449 if you max out the capacity.

And while the screen is the biggest on any iPhone, ever, that’s not always a great thing. It’s impossible to use one-handed — even with reachability enabled. 

Still, the iPhone XS Max is a powerful iPhone. It sports Apple’s new A12 Bionic chip, an incredible camera, a beautiful OLED display, and a flashy new gold color.

Price: Starts at $ 1,099

5. iPhone 8

The iPhone 8 has a slight advantage over the iPhone 8 Plus: its size. 

The iPhone 8 is a standard-sized smartphone, and that combined with its all-glass body means it feels great in your hand — though the screen is certainly smaller than the iPhone XS, XR or 8 Plus. 

The one other downside of the iPhone 8 versus the iPhone 8 Plus is the lack of a dual-lens camera, but for $ 100 less, I think most people can make do without. 

Otherwise, the iPhone 8 has all the same features as its big sister: fast charging, wireless charging, water resistance, a great camera, the year-old A11 bionic chip, and 64 GB of starting storage space. 

Price: Starts at $ 599
