This is a totally opinion based thread where I hope that others will contribute their thoughts. My question is, what do you think is/are the most highly overrated and underrated iPhones and why. Controversial opinions are welcome. Allow me to being... Most Underrated: iPhone 8 Plus It's important to remember that being "underrated" doesn't mean that something isn't well liked, because I can't recall anyone ever calling the 8 Plus a bad device. The problem is, of course, that it was over-shadowed by the X which led to many people people dismissing it as being less than a flagship when it launched. But the thing is, the 8 Plus is essentially the X in a form that many people preferred. Same processor, same RAM, same storage options, and even some advantages such as somewhat better battery life, and an effectively larger display, even if the X's is "technically" larger while being significantly narrower, and of course, a lower price. In fact, with 3D-touch and a higher resolution display, the 8 Plus offer's some advantages over the Xr, while again costing less. All things considered, the 8 Plus never really got to be in the spotlight even though it could compete with the best phones of 2017-2018. (Runner-up) Most Underrated: iPhone 5c Not a lot to say about this one other than that I don't think that it deserves the hate that it gets. It's typical for Apple to continue selling the previous year's model when a new one launches and no one gives it much thought. That's basically all the 5c was, the 5 in a new colourful plastic body that launched alongside the flagship 5s. I don't even think that the plastic body is particularly cheap looking or feeling. It always seemed to me like a decent device for anyone who didn't need or couldn't afford the latest and greatest model, and a way to feel like they're still getting a new iPhone instead of a year old one. Most Overrated: iPhone 6 Similarly to what I said about the 8 Plus above, "overrated" doesn't mean that I think this is a bad device. In fact, I had a 6 for over 3 years because looking at the 6s and 7 I saw little reason to upgrade. However, I've heard that the 6 is the most popular iPhone to date and frankly, other than the larger screen, it's not that big a leap over the 5s. Not sure what else to say except that while I loved my 6 I'm pretty sure that the only reason why I and many others bought it was because we wanted a larger 5s, and that's all Apple really bothered to do. (Runner-up) Most Overrated: iPhone Xs Might be a bit controversial as I'm sure there are many happy Xs owners reading this, and again, not saying it's not a great phone, but in my opinion, the X to Xs is the least significant generation-to-generation improvement that Apple has ever released. Every other generation I can name at least once notable new feature that it brought to the table, but the Xs is basically just a faster X with a better camera, which is basically the least that can be done while calling something an upgrade, and it's not like the previous model was slow or had a poor camera. I don't buy a new iPhone every year, usually more like every 2 or 3. But every year the tech enthusiast in me has to fight off a serious wave of temptation... except with the Xs. Nothing about it made me say, "wow, I wish I had that!" The only reason why it's just a runner-up for most over-rated and not the winner is because I think that a lot of people feel the same way that I do, so the Xs never felt over-hyped.
