Apple iPhone 6 Plus is a high-end device released in September 2014, counting with an extremely powerful 64-bits Dual-Core processor speeding at 1.4 gigahertz, a really big 5.5" multi-touch screen, and two cameras, an 8 MP back side camera and a 1.2 megapixels front camera. But let's get into some more details.

This device is offerred in 3 different color options, black, gray and gold. Regarding its design materials, this phone is mostly manufactured with Aluminium, giving this phone a top level design. Apple has made a very good design job making this cellphone weight only 6.07 oz. This cellphone has a gorgeous design, with a thickness of just 0.28 inches. This phone is a very compact cellphone, considering it presents a 5.5" display and it has just 6.22 inches long.

Apple equipped this phone with an amazing 5.5 inches display, and a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, making everything look vivid and colorful. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a vivid 500 candela/m2 brightness and allows multi-touch gestures.

This cellphone is equipped with a Apple A8 chip, packing an extremely powerful 64 bits Dual-Core processing unit ticking at 1400 MHz and only 1 GB RAM which is a little bit low comparing with this phone's great processing power. Collaborating with graphic intensive games and applications, it also counts with a PowerVR GX6450 GPU speeding at 450 megahertz. This phone comes with a 64 GB big internal storage and although it doesn't have a slot for an external memory card, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of applications and even the largest games currently available without even thinking about filling the cellphone.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, an 8 megapixels back facing camera and a 1.2 MP front facing camera. this cellphone's back facing camera lens has an aperture of F2.2 so it can capture impressive photographs even in poor lighting situations. It also shoots videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 60 frames per second, and 1280x720 HD slow motion videos up to 240 fps. This phone also features lots of great features like auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, optical image stabilization, HDR mode, face detection shooting, geo tagging and time lapse video.

The iPhone 6 Plus counts with Wi-Fi capability (and it can be provided to other devices acting as a wireless router or modem), 4G (LTE) fast connectivity and the fastest 3G internet connection, using HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This cellphone works with a Nano SIM card to connect to GSM networks and it can work with both GSM and CDMA carriers.

The iPhone 6 Plus features an awesome 2915 mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery that can keep it running for many hours without charging it at all. Apple reports a talk time of 24 hours and a stand by time of 384 hs for this device. An issue to take into account is that this phone's battery isn't removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to last shorter, though with its 2915 mAh you will probably buy a new cellphone before it becomes an issue.

This cellphone also comes with a wide range of interesting features as Biometric fingerprint, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (enables communication with other cellphones, computers and accessories) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone is being sold for about $ 170, which is similar to other similar phones. This cellphone is the right choice for you no matter if you want it to take many photos, will use it as a social device, will use it as a work phone or want a cellphone to play games. Apple sells this cellphone with Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic, Documentation, Lightning to USB Cable and USB Power Adapter.
