Apple iPhone 6 – the Highly Anticipated Smartphone

Posted on 26 September 2014 Tags: Apple, Feature, iPhone

The most highly anticipated smartphone of the year, the iPhone 6 is finally out with a bigger version, the iPhone 6 Plus, accompanying it. This is the first time Apple has released two phones at once. However, coming back to the iPhone 6, it comes with a bigger and crisp display, better camera autofocus, improved Wi-Fi and LTE speeds, in addition to storage capabilities of up to 128GB. Overall, a bigger smartphone that is easy to handle with plenty of features to satisfy smartphone users.

Design
The phone is slightly thinner than its forerunners with a bigger screen size. It’s a partly curved design which is folded by glass slightly around the edges. It’s beautifully solid and feels good to hold, thanks to the smooth glass front and metal back. However, it does have a certain feel of fragility to it, maybe because of its extra slim-look. Also, the camera lens on the rear of the iPhone 6 is slightly protruded, which could cause some unwanted scratches if placed on rough
surfaces.

The buttons this time are elongated like those on the iPad and iPod touch. Similar to some Android phones, the sleep/power button has been shifted to the right. If you are a hardcore Apple user, it may take some time to get used to. At the bottom of the screen is the round Touch ID home button which works amazingly. Just a simple press of your finger and it unlocks your phone.

Performance
Both the iPhone 6 models feature the new A8 processor. Just like the A7, it’s a 64-bit dual-core processor. However, it’s faster and delivers a better graphics boost. Coming towards the apps, the user interface and app-launching speed is quick.

Camera
Like the iPhone 5S, the phone packs a 1.2-megapixel camera on the front and 8-megapixel camera on the rear, with major improvements in autofocus. Yes, your days of tapping are finally over. However, there are no differences in the results of both cameras. The video though, looks good, smooth and clear even when moving.

Battery Life
The iPhone 6’s battery disappoints as it isn’t any better than the previous model. The iPhone 5S can run up to 11 hours whereas the iPhone 6 lasts around 10 hours and 30 minutes. Even during casual use, you can expect the same kind of battery drainage.

So, the iPhone 6 may not be revolutionary, but it is a good phone and should be considered if you have the money.
