Apple iPhone 6 Review

128 GB (A1586, A1524)     See other variants reviews Score: 79.2 / 100

Apple iPhone 6 is a very high quality iOS phone released back in the year 2014, having an exceptional 64-bits Dual-Core processor running at 1400 megahertz, a 4.7 inches multi-touch capacitive screen, and two cameras, an 8 MP back facing camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front-facing camera.

Apple did an amazing design job making this device as lightweight as 4.55 ounces. Talking about its materials quality, the iPhone 6 is majorly manufactured with Aluminium, Steel and Glass, giving this phone a premium look and high resistance. This phone just has 5.44 inches long, but it is able to fit a a 4.7 inches screen. This phone is just 0.27 inches thick, making it one of the thinnest devices out there. Apple offers this phone in 2 different colors: gray and gold.

Apple decided to power this cellphone using a high-tech 1.4 gigahertz Dual-Core 64 bit CPU, bundled in the Apple A8 chip and only 1 GB RAM memory which is a bit low for a device this powerful. Graphic calculations often consume a lot of CPU time, so the iPhone 6 has an extra 450 MHz PowerVR GX6450 graphic processing unit to take some work out of the CPU. This phone has a great 128 GB internal storage memory and while it doesn't come with an SD card slot, it is still enough to store lots of applications, games, photos and videos without having to worry about filling the phone.

The Apple iPhone 6 is equipped with two cameras, an 8 MP back side camera and a 1.2 megapixels front-facing camera. this cellphone's back side camera has a F2.2 aperture so it can take awesome photographs even in dark conditions. This cellphone can also capture 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 60 frames per second, and 1280x720 HD slow-motion videos up to 240 fps (8 times slower ). The camera also features lots of great features like flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.

Apple designed this cellphone with a high-tech 4.7" screen, and a resolution of 1334 x 750 , which makes it impossible to even see the pixels forming the screen. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a great 500 candela/m2 brightness and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This phone counts with a 1810 mAh mid capacity Li-Ion non-replaceable battery, which is quite poor for a consuming device like this. Apple reports a talk time of 14 hours and a stand by time of 250 hs for this cellphone. A key issue to take into account is that this phone's battery is non-removable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to last shorter, having to change the whole phone.

The iPhone 6 has wi-fi capability (which can be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high performance internet connection and 3G fast connectivity, using HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This phone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM networks and it can connect to both GSM and CDMA carriers.

This phone also includes a wide variety of great features such as Fingerprint ID, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (4.0) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

Apple is offering this cellphone for about 170 dollars, which is similar to other same level cellphones. It doesn't matter whether you want a device to majorly use social networks and internet browsing, you love taking photographs, will use it for playing games or will use it as a work device, this phone is probably the correct option for you. Apple sells this cellphone with Lightning to USB Cable, Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic, USB Power Adapter and Documentation.
