Apple iPhone 6 Plus is an absolutely great device released many years ago, including a 5.5" multi touch display, a very fast 64-bit Dual-Core processor running at 1400 megahertz, and 2 cameras, an 8 megapixels back side camera and a 1.2 MP front facing camera. Is that all? No, it's only the tip of the iceberg.

This device feels much lighter than what you would expect from a cellphone of this size. Talking about its aspect, this cellphone is mainly manufactured with Aluminium, giving it a high quality look and improved resistance. Apple offers this phone in 3 colors: black, gray and gold. Being just 0.28" thick,the Apple iPhone 6 Plus is very thin and comfortable. The Apple iPhone 6 Plus only has 6.22 inches long, but it manages to hold a 5.5 inches screen.

Apple packed the iPhone 6 Plus with a incredible 5.5-inches display, and a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD), which makes all images and videos look absolutely perfect. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a brightness of 500 candela/m2 and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

Apple ships this phone with a Apple A8 chip, holding a high performance 64 bit Dual-Core processing unit ticking at 1400 megahertz with only 1 GB RAM memory which is a little bit low comparing with the Apple iPhone 6 Plus's impressive processor. To handle graphic calculations, it also has a PowerVR GX6450 graphic processing unit speeding at 450 megahertz. A good feature of the Apple iPhone 6 Plus is its quite large 16 GB internal storage and whereas it doesn't count with a slot for an SD memory card, it should be enough to store a couple hundred games and apps, but it might not be suitable if you are planning to install some of the largest games currently available or taking tons of photos and videos.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 1.2 megapixels front-facing camera. Its back-facing camera lens has a f/2.2 aperture so it can capture detailed photographs even in poor lighting conditions. This phone can also shoot videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 60 frames per second, and 1280x720 HD slow-motion videos up to 240 frames per second (8 times slower ). In addition, the camera includes a high number of great features: flash, auto-focus, fast burst mode, optical image stabilization, HDR mode, face detection shooting, time lapse video and geo tagging.

This phone has a 2915 mAh high capacity Li-Ion non-removable battery that can keep it running for many hours, although you may find yourself looking for a place to charge it if you use it too much. According to Apple, this phone has an aproximate 384 hs stand by time and a 24 hs talk time. An issue to evaluate is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to live shorter, whereas with this big battery you will probably discard this cellphone before it becomes a real problem.

This phone counts with WiFi capability (and it can share it with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high performance connectivity and fast 3G connection type, supported by HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM connection and it can work with both CDMA and GSM carriers.

The iPhone 6 Plus also includes a great numbre of useful characteristics like Fingerprint Scanner, NFC, Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth devices and accessories) and GPS Localization, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone might be a little expensive considering it is sold for $ 349, while many similar devices are being sold cheaper than that. No matter if you want it to take plenty of photos, need this cellphone for work, want a cellphone to majorly use social networks or want a gamer phone, this device is probably a very good choice . This device is sold with Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic, Lightning to USB Cable, Documentation and USB Power Adapter.
