Apple iPhone 6 Review
Flashback to four to five years ago, iPhone 6 was the biggest phone in the market. Apart from the fact that the phone boasted a whole new design unlike the preceding models, it marked the beginning of a new-generation iPhone series and hence, will remain relevant for years to come. No doubt, better phones have been launched by the brand since then, but iPhone 6 still maintains its place among the legendary iPhone collections. Let us take a look at some of the phone’s core specs.
Apple went for soft curves for the iPhone 6. There is an obvious difference between the phone and iPhone 5S, which features shiny edges. Apple has always had it easy with designs. The introduction of this new smartphone design was widely welcomed by fans. The design feels cool. While the body might not instantly strike a typical smartphone lover, the finishing, neatness, and attention to the simplest details ill will anyone over. As at that time it as released, it was one of the finest and sleekest phones. Although most people feel the design is a safe one, rather than breathtaking, it still had the market appreciating creativity and simplicity.
Apple followed up the sleek design with a complementary industrial display. The phone boasts an increased screen size of 4.7 inches, 60.9 cm2, with an approximate 65.8 percent screen-to-body ratio and a resolution of 750 by 1,344, and 327ppi. The pixel is a little higher than that of the iPhone 5S which is about 326 PPI, although the iPhone 6 is pointedly sharper and brighter.
There is one core department iPhone 6 beats most of its rivals, and that is in the camera department. Apple never lets you down when it comes to camera quality and the iPhone 6 shows why. Although the smartphone features the same 8 Megapixel camera as in the 5S, there is more detailing, focus, and white balancing here. Apple has shown over time, even with their newer models that the numbers behind Megapixels do not usually count when it comes to determining the quality of a camera. You can trust the Apple iPhone 6 to take amazing shots both in normal lighting conditions and under low light conditions.
The iPhone 6 features a new dual-core A8 CPU, with 1 GB of RAM. There is also an upgraded graphics, and a much more improved M8 motion coprocessor. The coprocessor is a low-power chip mainly designed to save energy by checking the smartphone’s sensors. The phone comes in different models, each model donning distinct internal memory. The models come with 15 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB, although the 128 GB is not very common. The phone also features a barometer that helps capture atmospheric pressure and relative altitude accurately.
The battery life of the iPhone 6 is also commendable. Although Apple did not categorically state the capacity of the battery, reviews showed the capacity to be about 1810 mAh. The battery offers over 14 hours of Talktime and about 50 hours of music play.
