The iPhone SE is one year older, but its added storage options and strong performance running iOS 10 still makes it a great choice for small-phone fans.
The iPhone 6S Plus has a few key advantages that give it an edge for serious iPhone users, but its big body still may not fit for a lot of people.
The iPhone 7 may be the new hot stuff, but -- particularly with a price drop and a storage upgrade -- the iPhone 6S is still a great deal.
The iPhone 6 is an exceptional phone in nearly every way except its average battery life: it's thin, fast, and features the excellent iOS operating system. It was the best overall phone introduced in 2014.
The iPhone 6 Plus is an outstanding choice for those with big budgets and big pockets, but power users seeking even more flexibility should audition the Galaxy Note 4 as well.
Its colourful, pocket-friendly body and easy to use software makes the iPhone 5C a good choice for smart phone novices, but with only a small price gap between this and the considerably more powerful 5S, the 5C isn't the budget iPhone we hoped it would be.
With an identical design to its predecessor, and the same software you can now get on most iPhones, the iPhone 5S doesn't really offer enough to justify upgrading from the iPhone 5. If you're on older iPhones though -- or you're looking to take your first steps into Apple's world -- its astonishing power, excellent camera and fingerprint scanner make it a great option to consider.
The iPhone 5 offers a thoroughly pleasant redesign with a taller display and a thinner, lighter frame. Fast and packing a great camera, the hardware is hard to fault, while iOS feels slick and offers loads of apps, even if Apple's new Maps software feels like a step backwards. Despite some failings, this is still one of the best smart phones money can buy.
