Apple iPhone 6 Review

128 GB (A1549, A1522)     See other variants reviews Score: 79.2 / 100

Apple iPhone 6 is a brilliantly made device launched in 2014, including a 4.7" multi touch capacitive screen, a very fast Dual-Core processing unit clocking at 1.4 gigahertz, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front-facing camera.

Apple decided to power this phone with an extremely powerful 64 bits Dual-Core CPU ticking at 1400 megahertz, bundled in the Apple A8 system chip and only 1 GB of RAM memory which is a bit low for a device this good. To collaborate with graphic intensive games and applications, it also uses a PowerVR GX6450 graphic processing unit speeding at 450 MHz. This device has a 128 GB huge internal storage and though it doesn't include an SD memory card expansion slot, it is still enough to install lots of applications, games, pictures and videos without having to worry about running out of space.

Being just 0.27 inches thick,this device is extremely slim and stilized. This cellphone only has 5.44 inches long and 2.64" wide, but it is able to fit a a 4.7 inches screen. Regarding its materials, this cellphone is mainly made with Aluminium, Steel and Glass, which gives a top level finish and better resistance. This phone is sold in 2 different color options, gray and gold. The iPhone 6 is much lighter than what one would think about a cellphone like this.

The Apple iPhone 6 has two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.2 megapixels front camera. Its back-facing camera lens has a maximum F2.2 aperture so it can shoot impressive photographs even in low-light conditions. It can also capture 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 60 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 240 frames per second. Additionally, this phone's camera also features many great characteristics like flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, digital image stabilization, face detection shooting, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.

This cellphone has an absolutely amazing 1334 x 750 4.7" display, which makes all images and videos look beautiful and brightful. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with an incredible 500 candela/m2 brightness and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

The iPhone 6 counts with a 1810 mAh mid capacity Li-Ion non-replaceable battery, which is quite poor for a consuming device like this. According to Apple, this phone has an estimated talk time of 14 hs and a stand by time of 250 hours. A big issue to take into account is that this cellphone's battery isn't removable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to get older, having to replace the whole phone or maybe take it to an expert who can disassemble it and change its battery.

This phone has WiFi capability (and it can share it with other devices acting as a router), 4G (LTE) high speed connectivity and fast 3G connection type, using HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. The iPhone 6 uses a Nano SIM card to use GSM services and it can work with both GSM and CDMA.

The iPhone 6 also features a wide variety of useful features as Fingerprint ID, NFC, Bluetooth (allows communication with other bluetooth cellphones and accessories) and GPS Navigation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone is a top quality device and it's priced around 170 dollars, quite close to other same level cellphones. No matter if you want a cellphone to play lots of games, are an amateur photographer, will use it as a work device or need a cellphone to majorly use social networks and internet browsing, you will definitely be very pleased with it. If you buy the iPhone 6 you will also receive Lightning to USB Cable, Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic, Documentation and USB Power Adapter.
