Apple iPhone 6 Review

By -

Apple gave you everything you ever longed for in an Apple iPhone with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. It was just inevitable that a larger display came to an iPhone. The Apple iPhone 6’s whole experience just feels better because of that bigger display. This phone delivers more than just a bigger displays. There are many things that Apple incorporated here that might just make people think this is the best smartphone on the market.

Design

If there is something Apple just cannot get wrong is the design. They have made the phone bigger of course and at the same time, the phone has become thinner. Apple iPhone 5S was the thinnest a smartphone could possibly get, but I was wrong. This phone has just the rightly curved corners and a flat back to make the phone sit just comfortably in your hands. The quality is impeccable on the Apple iPhone 6. The aluminum has been upgraded. Apple iPhone 6 just feels more expensive and has a much smoother finish that the ones on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S. The speakers are still grilled at the bottom which is a bit of a disappointment.

Display

Consumers have begged for a larger display for a very long time. It was inevitable that Apple fulfilled their wish. Smartphone makers have mocked Apple for being petit but what I do not understand is, a display is not something you are innovating but something you are just making available. Apple iPhone 6 introduced their Retina HD display on the Apple iPhone 6 with a resolution of 1334×750 pixels. The display is 4.7 inches long diagonally. It just looks stunningly beautiful. You can see the flawlessness in colour representation, the perfect saturation and detailing that this display has to offer. Now even on the Apple iPhone 6 you can have long hours of quality entertainment and not strain your eye as easily on that 4 inch display.

Camera

Apple iPhone 6 has a better 8MP camera. It is just one of the most beautiful smartphone camera in the market. It uses the new focus technology to achieve autofocus faster. The camera no longer takes a time that your eye can differentiate. When you move the camera around, it is just doing it for you in the smoothest and fastest way possible. You still can touch to zoom for specific artistic shots. Apple iPhone 6 camera has a timer to time your selfies or even back shots if you have a stand or something. The camera can now shoot 240 fps slow motion video, this unprecedented for smartphones of today. Even general full HD video comes in the best way possible. The new camera can take better low light photos. The normal photos are even better, sharper and a saturation level that has not left Apple in the longest times. They have finally introduced HDR for videos as well as front camera.

Software

Apple gives this phone with iOS 8 out of the box. There are so many new features in iOS 8 that takes the phone a giant leap forward. Everything about iOS 8 is brilliant. Though we have heard the iCloud Drive is bit of a problem but all the new features that you can read about here are absolutely incredible. Apple has finally developed an OS that is not just better but also promises brilliance in the coming future.

Performance

Apple iPhone 6 comes with a chip that is 12% faster than the already untapped potential of Apple A7. The Apple A8 is 2nd gen 64 bit mobile processor for the Apple iPhone 6. The phone has 1GB of RAM. I do not believe that this has messed up the performance even 1 bit. The Apple iPhone 5S worked brilliantly with 1GB RAM and A7. Apple iPhone 6 has the usual smoothly fast functionality which is trademark Apple. The METAL capability that Apple released with iOS 8 has really used the graphics better and made more powerful games which no Android smartphone architecture can ever support. Apple offers 16GB, 64GB and 128GB versions with the Apple iPhone 6.

Passion and Inspiration drives my life and I get them both from technology. Getting to write about it is an absolute bliss. The bliss comes from people reading what you want to convey. There is nothing better for a person than his views to be heard. I am a music, tv shows, movies and technological enthusiast.
