Apple iPhone 6 Plus is a breath-taking iOS device released back in the year 2014, counting with a high performance Dual-Core CPU clocking at 1400 MHz, a 5.5-inches display, and 2 cameras, an 8 megapixels back side camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front side camera. We will get a better idea about this device's advantages when we get into deeper details.

Apple ships this device with a very fast 1400 megahertz Dual-Core 64 bits processing unit, bundled in the Apple A8 chip with only 1 GB of RAM which is a little poor comparing with this device's powerful processor. To collaborate with graphic calculations, this cellphone also uses a 450 megahertz PowerVR GX6450 graphic processing unit. This cellphone has a huge 128 GB internal storage and whereas it doesn't include an SD extension slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games available nowadays without having to worry about filling the phone.

About its design materials, the iPhone 6 Plus is mainly made of Aluminium, giving it a quality finish. This cellphone just has 6.22 inches long and 3.06 inches wide, but it manages to hold a 5.5" display. This cellphone has a wonderful design, with a thickness of just 0.28". Apple made this phoneavailable only in three color options: black, gray and gold. This phone is much lighter than what you would expect from a device of this size.

This cellphone is equipped with an awesome 5.5 inches display with a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, which makes all images and videos look beautiful and brightful. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a great 500 candela/m2 brightness and is multi-touch enabled.

The iPhone 6 Plus has Wi-Fi capability (which it can provide to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high speed internet connection and the fastest 3G internet connection, using HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This phone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM services and it works with both GSM and CDMA carriers.

The iPhone 6 Plus has two cameras, an 8 megapixels back camera and a 1.2 megapixels front facing camera. this cellphone's back camera has a f/2.2 aperture so it can capture clear pictures even in low-light situations. It also shoots videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 60 frames per second, and slow motion videos up to 1280x720 (HD) at 240 frames per second (8 times slower than reality). In addition, the camera includes multiple interesting characteristics: flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, optical image stabilization, face detection shooting, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.

This cellphone also comes with plenty of cool features like Fingerprint unlock, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (enables communication with other phones and accessories) and GPS Geolocation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone packs a 2915 mAh high capacity Li-Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for many hours and even reach the end of the day without having to charge it. Apple reports a 24 hours talk time and a 384 hs stand by time for this device. An issue to evaluate is that this cellphone's battery is not removable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to last shorter, whereas having 2915 mAh you will probably discard this phone before it happens.

Apple is offering this cellphone for around 170 dollars, quite the same as other similar devices. No matter whether you are looking for a gaming phone, want a phone for work, want it majorly for social networks and internet browsing or want it to take many photos, you will probably love this phone. When you buy this cellphone you will also get Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic, USB Power Adapter, Lightning to USB Cable and Documentation.
