    What are your opinions on new iPhones?
    Do they offer anything new or is it wiser just to buy older models that are dropping in price a bit now?

    Could everyone please get buying the latest iPhones. You know you will look really cool and your mates will be impressed. The share price has dropped recently and sales are down so please give Apple a big boost.

    I think they are a little bit overpriced compared to the Huwaeii P20 Pro and Samsung Note 9, which have comparable / better cameras. The problem is if you need this camera , in particular the wide aperture for low light and the colour reproduction (its better than the Note 8/9) , and are an existing iPhone user, switching to P20 Pro or Note will be a big change and Apple know this. As an alternative I would consider a used Galaxy Note 8 for 350 and theres not that much the 9 offers other than the remote control via the stylus, the camera is almost identical in the 8 & 9. The P20 Pro has the obvious advantage of triple lens. Its all down to the camera really, if you shoot mobile / street a grand is not a lot to pay to save carrying a DSLR

    I wouldn’t bother with anything older than 6s. Best value seems to be the SE.

    Good choices and best value currently if you dont need a decent camera.
