Review – iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
The Launch has happened and the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is hitting our shelves on the 19th of September and is already available to pre-order. The wait is over, so here is what we have thought:
Taking inspiration from the iPad Air – the design is metallic looking and feels light. Losing the sharp edges, for more rounded sides, it not only looks lighter but feels just as light. It does bring in the worry of dropping it but Apple have upgraded the glass of the screen – to handle more bumps, knowing you can safely throw your phone on your bed and miss it without any permanent damage to your phone.
The screen size has increased, I think 4.7-inches is going to be a tiny bit small for those that are used to the Galaxy S5 devices with the 5.2-inch screen, but it’s still a very good size for one’s hand. In addition, it comes with a better camera and faster processor. There’s more here than resolution too: the iPhone 6 packs wider viewing angles, deeper colours and a richer colour reproduction than anything else before it in.
There is not much of a change with the camera quality – though there is a faster speed in taking pictures and the better autofocus. In addition, a cool new feature is you can shoot a slow-motion video.
Overall, I think it is a pretty good handset – it looks good and a big step up from iPhone 5s in terms of features and looks. I think the phone is exactly what Apple users are looking for and it should not disappoint them. The rumours are that the battery life is better, but only time will tell that and the overall the screen resolution is still low compared to Sony and Samsung.
iPhone 6 Plus
Apple has joined the phablet generation. With an A8 processor, 5.5 Inch 1080p screen and upgraded battery – which offers 80 hours on standby. It is super thin and making it feel super light and balances it out on your palm, just like the iPhone 6.
Performance-wise, the iPhone 6 Plus is a very accomplished device, and allows users to do things that they might not have been able on the iPhone 5S. An increase in the processor has solved the battery life problem. As a phone, I do not think it will be used as much because it is too large but having it there makes it useful.
With the camera, it is the same as the iPhone 6 but they use optical image stabilisation, making the images clearer and they take in more light.
Overall, it has hit the mark for being a phablet device and has allowed Apple to show us what a difference something as simple as screen quality can make. It is user friendly allowing Apple to stick to its USP. The price will be higher than everything else on the market but Apple haven’t disappointed with the launch. However, the question is where do Phablet’s fit into the business world?
In conclusion both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sync with the iWatch and also come with the Apple Pay feature, giving Apple a new edge. Both phones have their positive and negative points, the price being the biggest downside but the investment might be worthwhile in the long run.
