Default Which I phone?

Well my Iphone 6 crapped out. Going to AT&T to look at replacement. Looks like the Iphone 11 is most logical choice? Thanks for input

There was a deal through At&T for the iPhone 11 where you got it half price for ordering online only. Not sure if that is still viable though. It was going last month when I was looking.

New iPhone se is under $500. It’s a mix of an iPhone 8 and an 11 I think

Since I keep my phones for awhile I did the iPhone 11 pro max. I like it so far. My company phone is a XR, I like it also but it is not as nice as the 11 pro.

I was actually looking 10 minutes ago. It doesn't appear that any iPhones are 5G capable. Is there any reason to wait for the 5G bridge?

I'd rather my samsung had not gone 5G. Since going 5G, my service has been crap. Makes 4GLTE service seem like dial up.

My 4G with Verizon seems like dial sometimes. Maybe I should just focus on the camera because the service will continue to su_k.

Whatever you do stay away from the 8. My son's had multiple problems and a buddy's just crapped out as well. Both went to the 11 and are happy with the phone. A little different because there isn't a "home" button.

Also, if you have a phone that you can still use dial "611" and you'll get customer service. They have deals the store may not have.

Coming from the I6, the 11 will be an awesome upgrade. No disappointment. Iíve had the 11 for several months and just went to the 11 Pro Max a few days ago. My eldest got the 11 as an upgrade to his XR. The 11 will be the best bang for the $$$. The pro max has several upgrades that makes it a more quality device...stainless steel frame vs aluminum, OLED screen vs LCD along with a tad bit more screen real estate, and the cameras on the pro max are simply phenomenal for a handheld device. Thereís other upgrades in the pro max under the hood so just compare and see what would work for you.

My 6S+ died a few months ago. I was waiting to upgrade to the 2020 model phone so I didnít want to spend $1k on an 11.

So I got an XR for around $500 with my trade allowance from my old phone. Iím
Happy so far and may not even upgrade to this yearís phone depending on what the upgrades are.

In the DFW area I get a 5Ge pop up in my signal bar. Not sure if Iím getting true 5G or of thatís just a future upgrade.

Apple has awful service. My phone crapped out in less than 4 weeks. From what you may ask? Seems the moisture in the phone will condensate internally with good temperature changes. Not going to buy another one ever.

The SE is the best bang for the buck right now. It is using the A13 which is their latest CPU with pretty much everything else Iphone 8. If you are wanting BIG, the XS Max is not a good idea. Try to find a deal on the pro max. The new screen technology that was introduced in the XS and XS max has some kind of refresh flicker that is not noticeable by the vast majority but does give a small number of a people a headache. The refresh is faster on the 11 so it isn't an issue.

A much cheaper route, you can order a refurbished phone online, pop your SIM card in the new from the old and done. Much cheaper and much less hassle. I say this cause it’s what I’ve done the last 3 I’ve had, granted I’m on an iPhone 6 but still it’s cheaper to go that route and have never had a problem with any of the phones, just user neglect.

I have owned iPhones as well as all of my family since the iPhone 4 and have never had this issue.

I was going to go used but for less than $100 more I was able to get a new one.

Granted I was looking at like new condition on used ones.

I am not a fan of facial recognition so, I stay with the 8. I am on my second one. 1st one lasted 2 years (and only died because I dropped it twice) and this one is at 2.5. I can't see why anyone would want or need a 5G. How many times do you need super fast data where you don't have WiFi? Andy you will NEVER get it outside of urban areas. It's range is extremely limited because the cells are so small and can never be as large as 4G. Not even close.

LOL! I've dropped my Iphone11 pro in Toledo bend, and in the live well at Sabine Pass (Saltwater). It still works good as new. I just have one of the thin small Otterbox cases on it, and I've had no issues.

Just went from the 6plus to the 11 max pro. I like it so far but it is a learning curve for me.

My wife and I trade in iPhones every other year. She had an 8+ so when the Xs max came out I got that. Then she got the 11 pro max. I will probably get the next one and so on.

This has been going on since I got the 3G first.

I did have an issue with my Xs max. I had a case on it but I dropped it in the road and ran over it. It did not leave a scratch on it but the bottom row of numbers on the phone pad would not work. I did a work order online and sent it in with free prepaid shipping (I did not even have to pack it. I brought it to UPS and they did the rest ) and within a week had a new phone. It’s the one I’m using right now.

I am in the boat you just left. I have an iPhone 6 + and trying to figure out what to go with. My concern is with all the talk of 5G how well will the 4G phones do once 5G becomes the goto standard.
