Is an iPhone Worth It?


This topic should have stats and results from test. iPhones are great to play IF on, however the screen may be too small for some people; a solution to this problem would be tobey an iPad.

Also this topic is a little difficult to understand, I had to read it a few times for it to make sense :)

Here’s a tip, try and compare the lifespan of all the devices your considering. You would want it to last long. The average lifespan of an IPhone is 4 Years and 3 Months.

Buy the S10+, infinity display, HDR 10+ plus can run max settings way better than the iPhone due to a better graphics card…

Waiting for the new iPhone will be apple’s copy Samsung innovation time so you be you.

I have the 128GB and run all my settings on high/very high. Absolutely flawless.

IF runs great on phone but I prefer using a iPad for IF the iPad is built for IF

The beat overall device is the IPad Pro, as it is used by the IF Team and their BETA Testing.

I use the Samsung Galaxy A40 and it is basically a copy of the iPhone X, it runs medium graphics with live cockpit, but overall I would suggest new apple devices. #Expensive.

I have an iPhone and I would recommend a Google Pixel. Apple is known to phase out their iPhones after a couple years, while I think Google phones often last longer than that. One of my friends has one and it is a much better phone. If you want a new generation phone, get the Pixel 3 for a lower price and better quality than Apple’s phones.

Of course! I prefer Samsung though

I’m going to go with what everyone said and wait till September 10th to see the new iPhone models. I use an S10 (not plus) and IF runs beautifully. The screen also automatically dims significantly to preserve battery life (almost as if the screen is off) and doesnt have a large notch, just a circular cutout which to me is an amazing part of the phone. Obviously it’s your final decision so I’ll leave you up to it

If it is a device just only for Infinite Flight so buy an iPad Pro 11 inches or more. It’s breathtaking on iPad. Settings to full of course

I agree with @KPIT here.


just wait a few more days, and you’ll get it for a great price!

That’s not entirely true, everyone gets upset at Apple but look at an iPhone 8 resale value compared to the original pixel. The pixel is going for 50-100 while the 8 is doing 350-400. Rember they both came out in 2017 Apple phones last a long time, and despite the claims of them reducing performance and what not all of that was done in the hopes that devices would preform optimally for as long as possible. They have borderline unrivaled software longevity, and are generally the most powerful phones for a given generation. iPhones may not be for everyone, but they are darn good phones expensive as they may be…

Or even get more performance for the current price, both good options, either way definitely wait…

The iPhone 11 is eh, not really my type. Everyone’s different I guess but you should be fine with a Xs MAX because my XR handles it perfectly on max settings.

Personally yes if your after security and support which gurentees 5 years if updates depending which device. From my preferance I’m more of an Android guy currently rocking the Pixel 3. But an iPad is great since bigger screen (I play IF on the iPad pro 10.5). Your choice.

Get Android and if your lucky to get 2 years of support even 3/4 or iPhone for 5 years.

As for storage get like 256gb, 512 is Overkill but worth in the run.

No but you see, the original Pixel was released in 2016. The iPhone 8 only costs a bit more than the Pixel 2 on eBay, but the only reason for the price gap is the fact that the iPhone was simply $50 more expensive for the same config, which is almost equivalent to the price gap. The reason I think the pixel 3 is way better than the iPhone is because for the same config (64 GB of storage), Apple charged $200 more for the XS than Google did for the Pixel 3 on release. We’ll have to see how much prices go up for both new phones that are released in a month or two, but I’ll bet that when the Pixel 4 is released in October it’ll be at least $100 less expensive than Apple’s new phone, while probably being just as good. Apple’s price hikes have made me lose all of my respect for them. The “Apple’s technology is way better than the competition” argument was solid up until 2017, in my opinion, because Xiaomi, Huawei and Google have entered the market, and while Huawei’s phones are also quite expensive, Apple is still charging way too much for what you get. If they had become the first company to offer wireless charging, I might understand. But most other big brands offered it at the same time! I think Apple’s insane prices don’t make sense at all, and they’re only charging so much because of the “luxury” associated with their logo. TL;DR they have some of the worst value for money of any phones.
