    Hey everyone,

    Sorry if this is not the right place to ask but did not see any wheres more fitting.

    I am currently using an iPhone 6 that is starting to run into some issues (dies super quick, sometimes I lose control of the touch features, dies at 2-7%, etc.). I was looking into the new iPhones and cannot decide what I want to do.

    Do you think its worth upgrading to an X, or should I try and XR or XS? Whats the advantages or disadvantages? I also even thought about just going for an 8.

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to iMore

    Any device you choose will be a substantial upgrade. The X is well worth it if your size conscious.

    Seeing as you are upgrading from the 6 and not the plus then the Xr will be a jump in device size but if you want to keep the same form factor then the iPhone 8 would be the perfect upgrade.

    Great thanks for the advice, I don't mind the size of the 6 but wouldn't mind it be a little bigger either.

    Might have you asking more questions, BUT iMore has an iPhone buying guide that provides much info on the products and the features of each.....

    You also have until the end of December to get Apple to do a battery replacement for only 29 dollars....

    If more screen Real estate is what your after then the X is a good choice due to edge to edge display but if you want over all device size then go to an Apple Retail Store and check out the Xr. You will get a little of both or I might say a lot.

    Oh wow that battery deal is actually really cool. I will look into it a bit more and maybe see if I can get a few more months out of my phone to at least get me past the Christmas season so I can get some extra money saved up.

    Also thanks for the buyer guide, will have to delve deeper into that if I don't decide to replace my battery for now.

    Unless the OLED display is a deal breaker for you, I recommend upgrading to the iPhone XR. It has the speed, power and camera of the X, XS and XS Max without the price.
