So I’ve had the following in my time

iPhone 4
iPhone 5
iPhone 6
iPhone 7
iPhone XR

For me I actually like the XR the most I still cannot get over how good it is. The full screen, the great battery life. Just feels like my perfect phone.

I really liked the 5 as well, my least favourite was probably the 7. I just found it a bit boring.

I had (and personally used) the following:

Original
4s
5s
6s Plus
SE

The 4s is by far my favorite design, and the 6s Plus is my least favorite.

I love the 4s because I think it is unique and beautiful. There is no confusion when looking at the 4s as to what the brand is, as the competitions' phones looked very different from Apple's back then.

The iPhone 6 design looks like every other phone out there at the time of the release. I remember watching the post-iPhone 6 event coverage to get a look at the new iPhone and when I first saw the pictures of the iPhone 6, I seriously thought I was looking at some Android model.

As for size of the iPhone, I prefer the iPhone 5/SE. I purchased an iPhone 6s Plus thinking I would like the bigger phone, which I did, but only when I was sitting down and could have two hands on it. It was impossible for me to use it 1-handed, especially when taking photos.

I ended up selling it and got my self a SE, and have been happy ever since.

Favourite iPhone ever?
You ask the question in the singular, yet give a plural answer.

No, I'm not the grammer or semantics police, but your use of the word "ever" implies (to me) that you meant out of all your FAVORITE(S) there is ONE singular favorite above the rest. Why use the word 'ever' if you didn't mean that?

Definition of favorite: preferred before all others of the same kind.

So pick one. Out of the list you provide, what is your Favourite iPhone ever?


Mine is the iPhone 5.

EDIT: Nevermind. I am a dumbass!

It'll be alright. They can have more than 1 favorite. No biggie.

I've owned every iPhone released save the Xs and Max. I'm four days into Xr ownership and I'm pretty sure the X is still my favorite which is a shame because I traded it into Verizon when I picked up the R.

Seriously considering going back tonight to swap out for a Xs. The only difference would be a $6 bump in my monthly Verizon bill and the restocking fee I'd be charged because I was dumb and bought from a carrier instead of the Apple Store.

My favorite is also the iPhone XR. Really liking almost everything about it, especially the return of having color options (especially blue). The only real complaints I have about it are the lack of pressure-sensitive touch and a USB-C connector. I'm planning to hang onto this phone for a pretty long time.

I've had these iPhones:
iPhone
iPhone 4
iPhone 5c
iPhone 6
iPhone 7
iPhone 8
iPhone XR

Have had every iPhone except the original. Favorite has got to be the Xs Max. Of course I’ve loved them all but with the Max I finally got the size I wanted without the forehead and chin.

I've had:

iPhone 4s
iPhone 5s
iPhone 6
iPhone X

Without a doubt, iPhone X is my favorite. I use it without a case because of how nice it feels in hand. Obviously performance is way beyond the others.

Second place would be the iPhone 4s, which I also used without a case for the same reason. I feel that is the classic iPhone design.

The original has to be my favorite. It was by far the biggest leap forward from anything I’d used before. Every iPhone I’ve had since then has been an improvement on the same essential concept, but that original 2g was, at the time, a whole new concept.

After that, probably the iPhone 5 because it brought LTE, which has made a huge difference in how I use my phone.

I’m gonna assume you don’t get laid myc
Actually, I've been married 21+ years and it's regular. My wife and I generally see things the same way so it works out.


I did. The iPhone XR.
Yes. I stand corrected. I went back and read your post and you did indeed mention that. This is what happens when I'm in a hurry and I don't read properly.

My apologies for misreading your post.

Are you ok?
No, not really. I tend put my foot in my mouth a lot and I did a pretty good job on this one.

Again, sorry. :(

I've had:
iPhone 3GS
iPhone 4S
iPhone 5C
iPhone 6S
iPhone 8

Of the iPhone's I've had my favorite has to have been the iPhone 6s as it was fast and dependable for the entire 3 years I used it for (with a battery replacement). It was also my first iPhone with Touch ID and it was second gen Touch ID, so it was blazing fast to boot. I feel like if I had kept it instead of upgrading to an 8 I would've easily got another couple years out of it (although probably with a 3rd battery at some point)!

In terms of what I’ve owned, it’s probably easier to say what I HAVEN’T had over the years.

Phones I haven’t owned: 3G, X

Favorite? 3GS. Can’t tell you why. Probably because it was a tank, it was the first iPhone that “felt” fast, it finally had a decent (for the time) camera, and most importantly it represented a simpler time in my life where some of my best memories were made (got it sophomore year of college, I am now 29). Sentimental reasons, really.

Best? XS Max. No contest. 8 Plus gets honorable mention.

Most popular design around here seems to be the 4 and 5, and they’re easily my least favorite of the designs. I don’t like the boxiness. But to each their own!
