First of all, the DimaViper Live channel specialist noted that it is definitely not worth buying an iPhone 6 from old iPhone models. This is because this device only has 1GB of RAM, no longer receives updates, and in general this version lacks any interesting features. The same goes for the iPhone 5. These smartphones are already very old.

In addition, the 8 has a powerful hexa-core processor with a score of 328,000 on AnTuTu. This smartphone will be updated for a long time, the camera and battery are not bad.
