I'd say iPhone 4

But this 6+ is a contender as well

Well the 7 Plus is better than the 4 so the 4 is the worst I've had.

For me, it isn't the hardware so much as the software.

iOS has been on a downward trend since iOS 7 for me. The performance is abysmal due to input blocking (where the phone doesn't acknowledge your tap/swipe/click because an animation is running, even if it appears done). The iPhone 4S/5 on iOS 6 feel so much faster than a 6/6S on iOS 7+ as a result.

Everything is turning into a store or service.

I'm not really sure there is a best iPhone since they all have pros and cons. Moving to the 4.7" screen size and form factor was a massive improvement.

This is the current state of smartphones. For a company to survive today it has to find a way to not only gain customers, but keep them as well. Apple is, traditionally, very good at this. They are slowly losing customers though, and I believe it's due to the lack of services. Google services being baked in to Android is a huge win for them, and I believe a driving factor in the long term adoption of the OS. Now that android phones are at a point where they function well, it is pulling customers from Apple. Unless Apple finds a way to open their services to PC users, I don't think there services will take off like Googles has. Unfortunately Apple is a hardware manufacturer first. So I don't think we will see their services opened up anytime soon.

For me the worst I've used was the 2G. Looking back, idk how I ever browsed the internet on such a slow connection. Although, things were optimized a bit differently then they are today.

There are no bad iPhones.  Only heretics that decide to denounce the iPhone.

I was jelly of my friend when he got the 3g before i did.

my 1g, now THAT was slow..  fastest for its time, but 3g blew it away..

Then I went all the way up to the 5..   and didn't do 6 because i felt apple has lost its way, and made an exclusive phone for girls..

Because of the way it's rounded..

In contrast to the ipho 5's  45degrees chamfer.. which was Perfect and industrial..

I've owned an iPhone 4S, 5S, 6, and 7 Plus.  I'd have to say the 6 was the worst for me.

It just felt like it failed to be one-handed usable like my iPhone 5S, yet at the same time, it failed to have a screen big enough to take advantage of some extra screen real estate like the Plus models.  So I lost the comfort of the 5S but gained none of the real benefits of the Plus variant.

That's my personal experience at least.

That's my personal experience at least.

We were forced to use the iPhone 4 model some years back, the single MOST useless phone ever purchased by my Company.

Bought a box containing 25 of them and nearly every manager had one and within a year all but two were left, the rest got smashed under equipment, fell into oil drums and the others got kicked about and shoved into microwaves.  Apple didn't get another order from us.

iPhones are not for outside workplaces simply to weak and limp to stand up to our needs and requirements.  Apple really failed on that one, but unlike you we didn't want to throw away more money on bad garbage.

The iPhone 12 is easily the worst. The decision to goto parasitic telepathic organic ear buds instead of bluetooth is the worst. Having that thing crawl down in your ear and leach onto your ear drum is the most disturbing thing I have ever experienced.

Yeah I think the 6s is fixed. I am trying to hold out for the 8.

I JUST figured out last night how to make custom ringtones in Garage Band. I have so many now..

My dead mother's. She didn't write the lock code down anywhere, and it isn't anyone's birthday or house number.

Being able to access her contacts would have been really, really helpful. -_-

Definitely the iPhone 5c, bar none. Such an awful, AWFUL experience.
They have the build quality of a saltine cracker, aren't even supported anymore and they also ran like crap too.
I currently have three broken ones sitting in my drawer. None of them lasted more than a few months.

4 is the worst! I'm fall in love with my SE <3

If my eyes weren't so shot I'd be using the SE..

It's so svelte..

SIgh.....................  If I could buy a new pair of eyes to go with the SE,  that would be ideal..

Not only 4, but all of them are also awful, for the same price you can get phone with far more better stats...

specs =/= good experience
